Beautiful home, near Hollywood beach and 29 minutes to south beach and little habana, the only thing jacuzzi was no working, other then that I recommend this house for your future vacations in Miami !!
I was very disappointed in this rental as there was no customer service what so ever in terms of amenties you expect when renting a house. By this I mean:
- No shampoo or soaps in the bathrooms
- No waste baskets in the bedrooms
- One plastic liner bag for the kitchen garbage pail
- A coffee maker but no filters
- One face towel for 6 people and one washcloth
- No instructions on how to use unlock the electric stovetop. We finally figured out that you had to hold your finger on the lock tab for 10 seconds to unlock the stove.
- No instructions as to where the outside garbage pails were which turned out to be on a side street behind the house, not intuitive at all when we had to throw out the garbage.
- The lawn gets mowed twice a month which in Florida in the summer makes no sense since the grass grows very quickly. When we arrived the grass was totally overgrown in the front and back of the house until it was mowed one day before we left (was there for 6 days).
We called the property manager and she was very rude and did not listen at all to our concerns. All she kept on saying was that the rental does not include things like garbage bags, etc and that people who rent are supposed to bring all of that with them. This was just amazing to me and my family as when people rent a home for vacation one expects to not have to bring kitchen garbage bags, soap, etc with them. Oh yes there was a dishwasher but only one soap tablet for one wash and then we had to buy dishwasher soap.
The owner did send over towels and shampoo but the shampoo was a large bottle and again just for one bathroom. I usually do not write reviews but my eperience was just so exasperating with having to do the little things one does not expect to do on vacaton that I had to write this review. Bottom line is that the house is roomy, clean and was a good fit for 6 of us. There were two rooms that shared one bathroom that is good for a family with children and then another bedroom as well. Just be prepared for no customer service and to bring everything little thing you will need or be prepared to buy it.
One more thing do not expect to be welcomed with a list of restaurants or sight seeing in the area as happens in many rentals. Instead you will get a binder that states an inventory of all the items in the house with a clear message that these will be checked when you leave to make sure nothing is taken. Not very welcoming.
My family and I were very excited to stay at this property- we booked it for a 3 night stay 3 MONTHS in advance, and traveled from California. 10 minutes before we had arrived to the house, a secretary for the owner called and said at 11am Wed workers would be on the patio- she never disclosed ANYTHING ELSE.
Upon our arrival, the house was under construction- a giant pickup truck parked in the yard, 5 men working to complete the roof, a bucket of tar and a ladder blocking the front entrance- and after getting out and speaking to the workers, we learned that the exterior construction would be continuing for the duration of our stay- they would be at the house for 5 hours the next day working on the roof, working on the patio Wednesday, and preparing for an INSPECTION on Thursday, the final day of our stay.
When we attempted to contact the owner there was no answer- I tried 3x more. I called the number listed in the house rules- only a woman who said she did not speak English.
Because of the amount of construction, the number of workers with access to the house and our two small girls, the lack of response from the owner, we did not feel safe staying at this property, and thought it was a scam.
The owner eventually responded to my text, and said the workers would be leaving in 30 minutes, however in that time we had to book another property and find a place to stay after traveling cross country. When the owner did contact me, he said all the construction was on the exterior, and he did not understand why we couldnt stay there. I explained that we booked this property far in advance, and it was never disclosed that it would be under any construction. Moreover, he had no consideration for the fact that we attempted to book a quiet, relaxing location for our family vacation to visit my daughters Abuelo who had just entered hospice care. With children who have to nap, there was no way 5 men laying tiles to the roof would be acceptable.
He however did not care about the misrepresenation of the property, and has refused to refund our money- we never entered the home which was under renovation, and he believes it is fair and legal to not disclose pertinent information to renters that would affect their choice in staying at his property. In any other instance of renting a hotel or other property, it is the responsibility of the owner to notify the renter of renovations- Home Away has only taken a report, and we are out hundreds and hundreds $.
A clean house 10 min drive from a crowded but nice beach. We had som issues with bad water in the jacuzzi, out of gas in the grill that we mailed about without respons. The backyard could use a makeover.
We were very satisfied with our stay. The house looks small and a bit non-descript from the outside, but was clean, modern and roomy inside with plenty of space for our family of 2 adults and 4 teenagers/young adults. Very nicely decorated with an open layout and plenty of room for either watching TV in the family room, sharing meals at the large dining room table, or reading out in the backyard or front room area. Our young people really enjoyed the hot tub. The kitchen was well equipped with lots of counter space, and our family appreciated the large TV in the family room and additional TVs in the bedrooms. Washer and dryer was a plus. There are a number of international grocery markets within walking distance and there are food trucks in the first traffic circle on Monday nights, plus lots of restaurant options in downtown area. It took us about 15-20 minutes to bike to the beach. Note one of the bikes is child-sized but still nice to have them. Check in was easy and host got back to me quickly with any questions. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
