About Owner/Manager

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

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2015

Why Owner/Manager chose Miami-Dade County

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.

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.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The location is perfect.... you can easily visit the everglades, the beautiful keys, or Miami. We got a fresh bowl of fruit upon arrival, the house was beautiful and very clean, and Wayne and his family were very helpful and made our trip amazing! Don't pass this rental up.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

The stay couldn't have been better. Wayne was so easy to deal with. Stayed in a bunch of homes in homestead and this was by far the best one. Being in a clean place is always my number one priority and his place was extremely clean. Will definitely be back.

Amazing - Clean, organized, quiet, all the good stuff

  • 5 of 5

My family had an incredibly nice stay. The house was cool and clean, very well stocked and organized. There was ample room for our group of five. The grounds were enjoyable, I spent most mornings on the patio watching lizards and birds. The mangoes and avocados growing there were delicious and exciting to have fresh! The site is in good proximity to many outdoor places to visit, being between the Everglades and Biscayne, plus close to the Keys. Grocery shopping and restaurants only a few miles away. Wayne left very detailed info on the house, and gave us a great tour of the trees and told us a lot about the local agriculture. Really an amazing stay. Could not be happier. I recommend this place to any family or group wanting to relax away from an urban setting. I was extremely impressed.

Tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Homestead! The guesthouse is roomy, charming, clean, and comfortable. It was easy to find and access. The homeowners are excellent communicators via rental website, email, and voicemail. The linens were luxurious and mattresses so comfy. We appreciated the coffee and condiments, microwave, toaster, modern bathrooms, beautiful furnishings, and even granite countertops. The setting is a tropical paradise with mango, avocado, lime, and lychee trees just outside the door and across the patio. We wondered around and picked and ate lychees and ciruela off the trees! There was even a carambola tree right by the patio. Wayne and Christina are friendly and kind. They encouraged us to pick whatever we wanted and gave us all kind of fruit to eat while we were here and sent a bunch home with us, too.

The Fruit and Spice Market was a blast, and we marveled at being in the midst of so many huge nurseries and orchards. We took advantage of being so close to 2 different entrances to The Everglades. We loved the Homestead Bayfront Park.

Thank you, Wayne and Christina!
