This Redland 1,200 sq. ft. concrete block guest house sits on 5 acres of tropical fruit trees including avocado, mango, ciruela, carambola, limes, lychee, longan, allspice and others. It is located in a very desirable area of the Redland, just a few miles north of downtown Homestead and just 20 minutes from Everglades National Park or Biscayne National Park and two marinas where you can launch your boat. Key Largo is 40 mn. south. The Redland Fruit and Spice Park is 1/4 mile away. The house is totally furnished with the highest quality of materials including: pillow-top mattresses, down pillows, down comforters, solid wood furniture and beds, mahogany nightstands and dresser, granite top nightstands and dresser, designer mirrors, granite kitchen, brand new solid wood kitchen cabinets, new all-stainless dishwasher, new garbage disposal, washer/dryer, 5 new ceiling fans, eleven chairs with leather seats, large pantry, Italian leather (Natuzzi) sofa and love seat, the highest-quality on the market plantation Polywood shutters throughout the home, hurricane accordian shutters on all exterior windows, large closets, several lamps with electrical outlets in their bases for easily charging devices and much more.

You just need to type the password into your device, which is located on the router. There is a 50" LED 4K SMART TV in the living room as well, allowing for free Netflix and some other channels. A second sent of linens and towels are provided upon request for stays of 7 nights or more . There is no maid service.

A campfire pit with cooking grate is available and firewood may also be available, depending on the time of year. Absolutely no pets and not negotiable. We want to be able to cater to guests with allergies to pets. The rate is higher for NASCAR weekend (Nov. 16-19). PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US ASKING TO RENT THE PROPERTY TO HOLD LARGE GATHERINGS, WEDDINGS, RECEPTIONS, CEREMONIES, PARTIES, ETC... THAT INCLUDE MORE THAN 7 PEOPLE. This is a vacation rental home in a very serene, quiet and peaceful property and we wish to keep it that way for our guests who come (most from far away) to enjoy their time 'away from it all'. 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 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.

Perfect Everglades Base

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed at this great guest home for 3 nights as our base to explore Biscayne NP and Everglades NP. I am so glad we did! The home is well laid out, clean, comfortable, and lots of great details that make the stay; a few zip locks, laundry detergent, water cooler, and more. The home is in a really nice area - so glad we stayed a bit north of Homestead where things felt a little more low key, safe, and relaxed. The kids loved exploring the fruit trees on the property even if there was nothing in season while we were here. Wayne was a great host and easy to work with. Would definitely stay here again.

Quiet and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We predominantly went to S. Florida to see and bird its unique natural areas: Everglades NP and the Keys being our main objectives. We also discovered Big Cypress, Ten Thousand Islands Aquatic Preserve and Biscayne NP and more... This comfortable, well-maintained guest house was out of the way in the agricultural district yet if you were willing to brave the Miami-Dade County traffic you could do some sight-seeing. It was perfect for us!

Can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I often travel with another couple who are long time friends. Both families are retired Army. We have much of the same interests: hiking, sightseeing, visiting National Parks and historical sites, We often stay at VRBO locations at least once during our ventures. We have never been disappointed. And, Wayne and Christina's property continued the perfect streak. We were TOTALLY pleased with the accommodations, cleanliness, hospitality, security, and privacy of this property. We would not hesitate to return if the opportunity arose!

Private, spacious, comfortable--and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our accommodations. The king size bed was amazing! It was also quiet in this rural setting. We enjoyed sitting outside looking at the orchard as dusk approached--and we enjoyed the big screen TV with Netflix access after dark.
