About the property

Romantic villa, modern and situated at the Bal Harbour bridge

We are a Belgian couple who fell in love with Miami some years ago. Now we rent our holiday villa to people who also wish to discover this wonderful city when we're in Belgium.

Why book Casa PuMi?

1. Location: the villa is located in a quiet American neighbourhood at the Broad Causeway of Miami, near Bal Harbour. You can easily reach all parts of Miami by car (Miami Downtown, Miami Beach, South Beach, Aventura, Arts District, ...). At proximity ( 2 min drive) you'll find Walgreens, Publix, Wholefoods, Starbucks, Jamba Juice, pizzeria, thai, ...

2. Space: there's a lot of space in the villa. Casa PuMi has 4 bedrooms (1 with king size bed, 2 with queen size bed & 1 with bunk beds) which can accomodate 8 people, and 3 bathrooms (with shower/toilet). While staying here you won't have the feeling you're living too close to your fellow house mates. You will always have your privacy.

3. Relax: Casa PuMi has a private swimming pool in the garden with sunbeds, patio furniture and the romantic 'sunloungers' where you can cuddle with 2 while sunbathing.

4. Easy access when checking in/out: the door opens/closes with a code. This is very easy when you're travelling with several people. No need to make an appointment to schedule the check-in and wait for half an hour until someone arrives. You arrive at the villa, enter the code and you're in. No hastle to coordinate with your fellow house mates who has the key and when they'll be back so you don't stand in front of a closed door. No risk of loosing the keys.

5. Free parking: very difficult to find in Miami. Always inquiere if there's free parking because this might cost you up to 20$/day. In front of Casa PuMi there are 2 parking spaces available.

6. European standards: clean, basic interior design. No oldfashioned American decoration, no stuff lying around, no plastic garden furniture, modern bathrooms.

House is very old and outdated! Badly needs renovation.

  • 2 of 5

We had a family reunion: 3 mature adults, 2 young adults and 1 kid. Our overall impression of the house was mixed. The description and the pictures were accurate, but everything was so old and outdated: Ikea-style furniture was once white, but now it's so dirty and greasy that it's almost grey. A dining room table was nice in the last century, but now it is scratched and greasy. The furniture was also damaged with a big hole on the sofa in a kitchen, no furniture legs. The property was kind of dirty too: the walls had marks all over, very old & worn out beddings, cheap old mattresses with urine stains, uncomfortable pillows, number of towels were very limited, etc. Several bulbs were missing in a dining room, kitchen, bedroom and in a fridge. Not a single TV set in the whole house! Apparently, it was one on a living room wall, but now it's gone. Ceilings in several rooms had roof leakages and not painted after the leaks. Kitchen was not well equipped, some basic utensils were missing, no kitchen towels at all, 2 can openers were broken. It's obvious that there is no local person to manage the property & a cleaning person does not care even about the basics. When we arrived the swimming pool was dirty with a lot of debris and insects in it: no posting if it's ever had been maintained. On our last day a guy showed up to maintain the poll, but it was too late for us to use it.

On a positive note: the owner was always available, was very accommodating (she allowed us to stay for several hours after check-out time). Our deposit was fully returned on time. The location of the property was good, with grocery store Publix nearby. House is very spacious and driveway has parking space for 3 cars. This house could be cozy if not that outdated and poorly maintained. We would not recommend this property for mature couples or couples with children until the renovation is done!

Best Kept Secret in Miami!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was so amazed at the upkeep of the property! Annelies De Wilde was always one call away! Everything looks as showed on the property, in the pictures on this website! This was my first experience not booking a hotel. From this experience I would book again & again. I went with 6 of our closest friends and we enjoyed being out & about. The best part was Casa Pumi!

We enjoyed our stay. Casa Pumi was very ample and comfortable. Good location.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Casa Pumi, ample and comfortable. Good location.

However it needs some comfort in the bedrooms. 2 night tables with reading lamps and at least a chair in each bedroom. In Ikea you can get them for "nothing"! and it makes all the difference. I love to read at night.....and this was impossible! and my husband had to leave his belongings on the floor...his glasses, a glass of water, phone & personal things..... I think this house deserves a better level! ....No love in the garden...a pitty! a few plants would make such a difference!

All in all, we would go back again! Thanks!

Owner's Response: Dear Mercedes, Yes, you are absolutely right about the garden! Last month we asked our gardner to work out a design to plant some nice trees in the garden to make it more appealing as now we only have grass. Work in progress. But I must stress that our holiday home is a basic home so there are only the basic things you need, so also only 1 nightstand per room but indeed, I can definitely look into buying an extra one with reading light. We also mention this in our advert and have adjusted the rental price (you will see it’s really low compared to others in the Miami area) so people are aware of this. Thanks for your review and have a nice day! Best regards, Annelies

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as pictured. Pool was perfect temperature, great size and very clean and well maintained. Plenty of space inside house and out so when you wanted privacy there was no problem. Communication with owner and maintainence guy Robert was great and house was all set for us even though we arrived very late at night. I would stay here again and definitely recommend this property to all.
