Miami Trip 30th Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

I had my 30th birthday at this villa and invited 13 of my friends. When we got there the house was in tip-top shape. It is the ideal "Miami Beach" house with it's vibrant colors and fun decor. Also, the owners of this house were super accommodating and friendly. I had friends who flew in earlier than me and she let them in earlier without any hesitation. I would recommend this house over a hotel any day.

Extraordinary Villa & Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

I choose to stay at Jeanette's villa to host my bachelorette party with up to 14 girls! The place was amazing. The house was spacious for all of us and there was plenty of room to move throughout the entire house, including the living room, kitchen and other common areas. The location was superb. It was far enough from the craziness of the South Beach strip, but a super short uber ride down to enjoy the beach, food and drinks on Ocean Drive, Collins Ave, etc. Alton Rd was a block over so we were able to walk to the CVS, liquor store and Starbucks whenever we needed anything. Jeanette was absolutely amazing and a sweetheart from day 1. She was always a phone call away from any questions we had. The décor of the house was awesome. The villa had everything we needed - from cookware, the pool, BBQ pit, TVs in every room (with cable!). It really made it a home away from home. I cannot express how great Jeannette was and how accommodating she was with our travel schedules. She allowed us to get into the house before check-in and also allowed us to leave our belongings there before our flights out on the last day. She also worked with my sister (who couldn't join us) to leave a few surprises in the house for me and the girls when we arrived. I look forward to visiting Jeanette and her villa again soon!

2 Years in a Row, and We Will Be Back Again!!

  • 5 of 5

I discovered this rental property in 2015 and did not hesitate in staying here again in Summer 2016. The place is amazing! There is so much room. Our party consisted of 14 people in 2015 and 12 people in 2016. There was enough space to accommodate everyone. Jeannette is fantastic, I can not say enough about how she has worked with us on our reservation. The pool area is awesome. The villa has gorgeous rooms both upstairs and downstairs. The location is ideal, as it is a short walk to the mall, shops and even the beach is only a few blocks away. I can not wait to come back (3 yrs in row, it's starting to feel just like home). I highly recommend this property, just not on the weekend we will be coming back, because we will have it booked already, trust me lol.

Great House

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this house, 7 of us from all parts of the country on a college reunion. The house suited us just great, it had all we needed to be a home base and it was very conveniently located. It was a short walk to the beach, the house was clean with all the amenities we needed. We look forward to coming back on our next trip.

I stayed here with a group of friends for a long weekend in February. Getting to the house from the airport was not a problem. There are two homes on the property that share outdoor space, but this house had direct access to the pool, and an additional "pool house" for a separate private suite. The other house was also rented by a group but they were friendly and didn't mind sharing the outdoor space. There was construction in front of the house So we had to use the shared driveway for main access (no big deal). The kitchen is stocked with everything you need, just need to add your own groceries. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were sizable and clean. Washer/Dryer on site. Plenty of sheets and towels. Decor was very fun! Wireless was reliable. Stores like CVS, Starbucks, Einstein Bagels are all within close walking distance. The beach, Lincoln Road, Collins Ave and Ocean Drive are also within walking distance (depending on your idea of walking distance). Cabs were easy to find. I'd absolutely recommend this home to friends and hope to return soon!!

Wonderful stay in cute villa in perfect SoBe location

  • 5 of 5

All the previous reviews were accurate, and the villa fully met expectations. I spent MLK Weekend here with 7 girlfriends for a big birthday. Everyone fit comfortably in the house, with fun decorations in the living room, a fully stocked kitchen, numerous bedrooms, and a recently completed poolhouse (with another bed and bath). Amazing location -- quiet residential area, CVS across street, Whole Foods few blocks away, walking distance from beach and Lincoln Road, short taxi ride to restaurants and clubs. Only downside was major construction work on the street out front, which began early and ended late.

Jeannette was wonderful -- very responsive to questions, accommodating of requests, and a gracious hostess. Although she was out of town when I arrived, her son and daughter-in-law provided a warm welcome and checked in by text during the weekend to see if we needed anything.

HIghly recommend this lovely house for a fun and relaxing weekend in the heart of South Beach.
