This place truly is spectacular and we are confident that you will be glad that you chose to stay here.

About Owner/Manager

Married couple that have become 'empty nesters'. We are both educators and also tropical fruit farmers.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2015

Why Owner/Manager chose Homestead

Very secluded and private in the heart of the very desirable 'Redland' area of southwest Miami-Dade County, just minutes from Biscayne Bay, the Everglades, the FL Keys, factory outlets, and surrounded by south Florida tropical agriculture (fruits, vegetables, ornamental nurseries, tropical fish farms, etc.). This place is very private and you will feel like you are in the country.

What makes this house unique

Very large patio area for parking boats, multiple vehicles, RVs, etc. You can have a campfire, barbeque, clean your fish, wash your vehicles/boats, etc. on over 3,500 square feet of brand new concrete patio. The house sits on 5 acres of tropical fruit trees and has an electric gated entry way.

Great weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house on lovely property. Clean and well stocked house with enough space for our party of 6.

Host was super helful and repsonsive. We booked it last minute due to a flight change and the host was super accommodating to our last minute booking.

Avocade and starfruit grown on the property was a delicious bonus.

Awesome house with large fruit orchard in backyard. Very, Very clean

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i celebrated our 42nd anniversary while staying here. We had a great time at the Everglades, Biscayne Bay, and Key Largo. We also went to Coral Castle, Fruit and Spice park, which are both very close to this house. Wayne, the owner was extremely friendly and sent me plenty of information about this house and how to get there. So, if you want a very clean, good location, well stocked with all household needs, and great view of orchards., this house rental is for you

Convenient, Clean and Caring!

  • 5 of 5

This rental unit is a perfect place to anchor as you go out and explore South Florida. We were able to take a day trip down to Key West (about 3 hrs.) and return without feeling rushed. Miami is a short 50 minutes from Homestead. The managers were cordial and responsive to our questions. The info preparing us for usage was clear and thorough. Great experience!

Outstanding, clean, well-equipped two bedroom house

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Redland Tropics. The house was very clean and one of the most well-equipped rentals we have seen. The owners provided delicious fresh fruits harvested from their own orchards. The house had absolutely everything we needed. We enjoyed visiting Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park, and Key Largo. It was a great trip for Labor Day weekend, and we wished we could have stayed longer.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

After reading of all the great reviews my wife and two teens went in with high expectations and all were met and exceeded, including outstanding communication with the owner.

I can't add anything more to the rave reviews that have already been posted except to say it really felt like home away from home and thank you Wayne!

Exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

We had family business to handle in Cutler Bay and were looking for a quiet home base with some room for my son to roam. Our hosts were attentive and the house was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Wayne took us on an educational tour of the orchard and I developed a new appreciation for mangoes and avocados. We will definitely be back when our travels lead to South Florida again.
