Peaceful home close to the Everglades!
My husband, 20-something daughter and I enjoyed two nights here, April 8-10, as the springboard for our visit to Everglades National Park. Home was comfortably furnished with all we needed to make dinner one night and a couple breakfasts, as well as to do our laundry after our hike thru' the Everglades River! Had a wonderful sunset view and enjoyed the peaceful and quiet surroundings of adjacent orchards. Enjoyed the space and being able to spread out as well as have private sleeping spaces. It was convenient to the National Park where we would highly recommend a day with Garl's Coastal Kayaking for a knowledgeable and fun guide, plus great adventure with plenty of wildlife and habitat viewing thru' an Everglades River trek, followed by lake kayaking, and then a coastal sunset kayak. The home was also close to shopping for groceries and suntan lotion, and the fun Robert is Here fruit stand/fruit shakes.
Beautiful, secluded location
I loved this place from the moment we arrived. The yard is huge and the property is surrounded by nut orchards and crop fields. The house was very nice, clean and well stocked. The location was perfect for us because of its central proximity to Everglades, Keys, Biscayne Bay and Miami airport. Best of all was how beautifully quiet and relaxing it was. Only regret was that I couldn't stay longer. We never met Julie and John personally but they were only a phone call away when we had a question. We ate at a few of the local restaurants (Mario's being my favorite) and they were all very good. I would recommend this house to family and friends.
Beautiful home in the country
Beautiful home in the country and only minutes from everything the city and southern Florida has to offer. We have three young kids and the home was spacious and the yard perfect for them to run around. The owners are very nice and accommodating should there be anything you need.
Great location, spacious and comfortable
Ideal location if you want to visit Everglades, Big Cypress and Biscayne, as well as Key Largo. The place is in a safe location, with a view of groves of trees, and a huge backyard for kids to run around. The place was very clean, and surprisingly big. It was a nice two bedroom space, with a very big open living space and well furnished kitchen, washer and dryer, towels and extra bedding etc., two big sofas in the living room, a wireless modem, TV, DVD player and also a music system. Great location especially if you like a quiet country setting, spacious and comfortable. And the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back and stay here.

In farmlands but near south Florida attractions
This is a sizeable two bedroom home among farms and orchards. Yet it's only three miles from Homestead retail centers and about six miles from the Everglades and from Biscayne Bay National Park. The upper Keys are about a half-hour drive away. All the household, kitchen and bathroom equipment was up-to-date and worked very well. The living area flows into the dining area which flows into the kitchen. It's a nice open feeling. The deck on the side of the house gives fines views of the adjoining orchard as well as the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The peace and quiet in this rural setting was much appreciated. The owner is most friendly and helpful with any needs for assistance.
