About owner/property manager

Much love and care goes into the presentation and upkeep of my home. This home was bought by my Dad 6 years ago. He was getting on in age so we tried to talk him out of buying a house but he wouldn't listen. I was his caregiver for 5 years until he passed away and left the home to me. I knew I would not be able to afford the taxes, insurances and upkeep so I decided to try VRBO. It saved me from having to sell. I live in this house when not renting so I'm a bit different than other VRBO etc. users. I try to keep my calendar undated but at times that is impossible. I also like to speak or email with the person who is inquiring to book. I am very selective but completely fair when renting my home. My choice is made by how comfortable I am with the purpose of the use of the house. I will not rent to anyone looking for a venue for a party, wedding etc. unless discussed first. I am 67 years old and do all the prep and work myself to cut costs. The landscaper is the only person I pay unless something breaks and needs replacement. I am very proud of my accomplishments and honored my Dad by naming the house Andy's Place. Yes Andrew, (daddy) I know your smiling down at me. You are all welcome, just speak to me!

Why owner/property manager chose Florida

It is fully stocked and very neat and clean. There are no false pictures or misrepresentations of any kind. I am 15 minutes away in case of emergencies and respond immediately. If the weather in inclement the large patio still allows you to sit outside and chat or have a meal and listen to music if you'd like. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. If you want to beach it, the ride is 20 minutes away, and yes I provide chairs, boogie boards, ice packs, beach towels, umbrella and coolers. All I ask is how you found it is how you return it.

What makes this house unique

Ideal pool setting, close to stores, theaters, restaurants, etc. In a hotel you are confined to one room and everything is costly, in my home you have the choice of eating in and planning your day according to your mood and the weather.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These guests stayed 3 nights ( 4 adults, 2 children) . Plan was to barbecue on the beach one day then return to the house in the evening and bring a few family members for a evening enjoying the patio. Truth is they used the house as a family party venue which I said was not ok. I don't rent out my home as a venue for any kind of party. I know more people stayed in the house. It was a mess and everything in it was out of order. Simply said it has been 18 days since their check out and my home is not rentable until I get the pool water back to where it should be, which is not GREEN! I have spent countless hours, energy/manual labor, electricity and money to rectify the damage they did. I have lost income and had to file a claim for damage to my driveway. Had I realized it would take me 2 1/2 weeks and still counting I would have filed a claim for the pool also. I have not been unable to use my pool since then left. I'm off to the pool store yet again today to see what I have to do next. The green algae spots will not scrub off with the pool brush. Not to mention the temp outside is in the 90's and feeling like 100 and I have to work in that and not be able to take a dip to cool off while doing so. I am feeling very weak today after doing this yesterday! To say I'm disgusted is an understatement!

This was my very first experience renting a home. I was a bit nervous as it was only me and my elderly mom who has mobility issues and we were without a car as I don't drive. Having said this, I still wanted the experience of renting a private home with private pool. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation. Carmella's home is beautiful with every amenity you can imagine. The pool area is just heavenly. Even without a rental car it worked out great. The nearby Publix supermarket was a $5 Uber ride away. Aside from picking up some items at the market, we also ordered food in for dinner, which was convenient, fast and delicious. Carmella had menus to some awesome Italian & Chinese restaurants nearby that delivered. The handicap accessible bathroom was a huge feature that worked perfectly for my mom. Only about 25 minutes from FLL airport, so it's easy to get to even if you're taking a cab as we did. The enclosed pool space prevents little critters from getting in which you're sure to find when you have trees and greenery surrounding the pool area...which most homes have to provide privacy...but this also may invite some unwanted little guests. This was not an issue for us which we really appreciated. I can't say enough great things about this home. Large TV's in 3 different rooms of the home which were great to watch and relax at night after an exhausting day of swimming and sunbathing 😀򐀮 Thank you Carmella!!

Owner's Response: You are so welcome Maria. I'm so glad that you had the vacation you were hoping for and that the house suited all of your needs. Thank you also for the fabulous review! You and your mom are now on my list of "Best Guest's". I would welcome you back again anytime! You left the house exactly the way you found it which was a joy to see when I returned home and I so appreciate it. I hope the second leg of your trip was as joyful as the first and that you and your mom had a great time in Miami. Thank you again Maria!

This is an amazing property. The owner met us at the home and provided us with a detailed tour and a thorough orientation of the home. We did have to call her a few times to ask questions, and our calls were always answered promptly.

The location was close to the beaches, and very close to shopping, restaurants, and other amenities.

We highly recommend this property, and would not even look at other options when we return to the area.

Better than staying at a hotel

  • 5 of 5

My family (6 adults and an 18 month old) had to come down for a weekend wedding.

Staying at Carmela's was a great choice. This was our first experience at renting a home instead of going to a hotel. We will certainly be doing it again.

It was very spacious, very clean, and had all the amenities one could ask for.

Even though we were always on the go, when we were there, sitting out back by the pool was the perfect space for us.

Thank you again Carmela for sharing your home.

Highly recommended holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed spending time in this house, it had everything we needed. Carmella was lovely. We found the location to be very good and nice and quiet. The photographs on the website do not do it justice. It is a beautiful well kept home. Very comfortable and clean. The pool was amazing. The children loved it. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The lounge chair is off to be repaired it was simply wear and tear that I knew would need to be done. I fixed the white water stain on the nightstand myself, it's important to use coasters which are provided. I'm was very confused about the water and algae in the pool, this has never been a problem and I'm guessing that you didn't understand how important the pool cleaner is. I sincerely don't know how you swam in it. I am always on call just ten minutes away and tell all guests that if they have any questions or need help with anything to just call me. My response time is excellent and issue resolved. It has taken me 5 days to rectify this issue. I'm just very thankful I didn't have guests coming right after your departure. All of this is important to me however, it teaches me how to prepare for guests who are traveling from all parts of the globe. All this aside I thank you for making the effort to leave the home tidy when you left.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home and very comfortable place. The pool/patio area is where we spent most of our time...the setting was appealing.

Homeowner was hospitable offering us a bottle of wine from her wine rack.

The only thing is if you are going to rent your home to vacationers you should not ask that the chrome in the bathroom get wiped down or minimize the heating of the pool.

All in all good stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'd like to say that I never expect the guests that are renting to minimize the heating of the pool. As explained the weather here has been unusually rainy, windy and on the colder side. If your using the heater to warm the pool for swim time, please, enjoy, however the pool heater is useless if your running it all night and then the next day it's cold, you will get a good swim that day but the heat will very quickly dissipate into the cold air, so if the pool won't be used just turn off the heater and then put it back on when the weather forecast is better and you're going to swim. This issue is new because of the weather this year. I have learned from this experience and have yet to come up with a solution other than raising my rates and run the pool heater the entire stay regardless of the weather conditions. Wiping down the chrome in the bathroom simply means when you leave, the house is close to how you arrived. This is noted on the homes description very clear. This is the reason I am very selective to whom I rent. No Spring Breakers or Ultra concert goer's. I realize this is vacation time however it's also the reason I am so very selective as to whom I rent to. Nothing is perfect, so far I have been blessed with very nice guest's.
