A Perfect Place
Everything was absolutely PERFECT.
Communication with Miriam, who is wonderful, was flawless. From the minute she personally meets you at the door and gives you a meticulous tour of a home that she very obviously loves to your last well wish and farewell she is responsive, positive, upbeat and extremely kind.
Her home was spotless and we never had any issues with anything. The private yard is sublime. It is what you hope for when you want to visit Florida and have a private pool where you stay. Lush tropical plants throughout the fenced in backyard provide plenty of privacy. We were by the pool at all times of the day and heard no noise from anywhere with regard to loud neighbors, it was extremely peaceful and quiet.
The home is fully equipped with everything you will ever need. There are also some lovely creative artsy aspects to this home that we just loved.
What we especially love about this home is that from the minute you unpack, it is home. It is comfortable and welcoming.
Miriam provides beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, beach ball, noodles...lounge chairs around the pool, a comfy swing by the pool and beach towels. Additionally, you will find supplies in her home which I think is so very helpful. Spices, coffee filter, coffee, Ice in the freezer and an ice maker, she even provided bottled water for us that was already cold.
Miriam really truly cares about giving her guests a quality experience.
We want a home that we can return to each time we visit family in Florida and Miriam truly made us feel very welcome.
I HIGHLY recommend this home.
She also provided a guidbook for us with some lovely sugestions. That got us into the neighborhood and we found some new things as well.
We really enjoyed our stay in this home. This house is very comfortable and had everything we needed for the week. Miriam met us on arrival and was very friendly and had some great recommendations about the area. We will definitely keep this house in mind for our next trip to the area.
this home was more than I expected, we had such a great experience with family and friend in this beautiful house Miriam's house has a tropical garden in the back and its close to a huge park which my son loved it. The house is located just 10 minutes from the beach and about 5 to convenience stores.
Highly recommend and would love to come back here.
Thank you Miriam
Daysy, Thanks so much for such a nice review! I thank you for treating my house as it was yours.... I highly recommend Daysy and her charming family, to any host. ..... you'll always be welcome back in Victoria Park.
Warm regards, Miriam.
We had a great time staying here for our trip to Fort Lauderdale for the Tortuga music festival. Walking distance to Las Olas and a short ride to the beach. The house had everything we needed along with an awesome backyard with a pool. Miriam was so nice and was there to greet us when we arrived. We’ll definitely look into staying here again when we come back!
It was a pleasure to host Steve and his friends: lovely guys....They were very respectful and kept the property extremely clean.
Any member would be lucky to have them as guests.
We look forward to hosting them again in Victoria Park.
Warm regards, Miriam.
Living With Rats
We rented this property from February 1 to March 31.
During the first six weeks everything was okay and problems brought to the attention of the owner were solved satisfactorily.
However about 2 weeks prior to end of our rental period the house became infested with rats. A representative from a pest control advised the owner that there were two points of entry that required sealing but should not be sealed until the rats were exterminated. Rat traps were placed in the attic and in the living quarters. The next day 2 rats were in the traps- one in the attic and one in the kitchen. We thought the problem had been resolved. However while having breakfast a couple of days later another huge rat scurried across the room. We decided we could no longer live under these conditions so we moved out.
We were reimbursed for the week remaining on our rental.
However, we also requested a refund for the week that we actually lived among rats. We also requested a refund for two nights we had to stay in a hotel as it was a Saturday and we were unable to get a flight back to New York until Monday. The airline cost to change our tickets was $380.
The total refund request was approximately $2,500.00.
The owner of this property has not responded to our requests despite having been encouraged to do so by Home Away.
This experience has been extremely distressing for us and we feel we have no further recourse because of the intransigence of the owner of this property.
We just want to warn prospective guests of the dangers in considering this property for rental.
After informing this problem, the guest told me that she was so happy at this property that she will rent it again FEB/MAR 2020. Why someone would stay in a place where they are not happy or feel stressed? She should have moved-out, and I'd have reimbursed her the last two weeks rent, instead of just one. $1,500 was immediately refunded for the last week, to be used on any other property.
We took immediate action when the guest reported the problem. I hired the best company in town. They explained, to all of us, that this was a bad season in South Florida, and they were working with the counties/cities to mitigate the problem.
Problems could arise, what matters is if the Host takes immediate action to solve it or not; and I did. My properties are immaculate, as acknowledged by previous guests, and I'm proud of it.
I informed HomeAway, about this problem, when the guest showed-up to my house on Saturday morning; the same day she got her money back and moved-out. A report was also submitted when requested.
I care about my guests' well-being. However, I won't accept giving money in exchange for not publishing a "scathing review".
EXTORTION WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED!
Clean house with amenities such as water and coffee and paper products. It’s in a close location to
Great house, great host, great location. What more is there to say?!
Judith, , , thanks so much for such a Nice review.....You and your family were Great guests.....You 'll always be welcome back at anytime..... Warm regards, Miriam.
VICTORIA PARK IS A TRANQUIL/CHARMING UPPER-MIDDEL CLASS NEIGHBORHOOD. IT IS THE CLOSEST ONE TO DOWNTOWN.... YOU COULD WALK TO TRENDY LAS OLAS. VICTORIA PARK HAS ITS OWN CAFES AND RESTAURANTS WHERE YOU COULD MINGLE WITH LOCALS. IF YOU ARE IN A WILD-PARTY MOOD THIS IS DEFINATELY NOT THE RIGHT PROPERTY FOR YOU.
Holiday Park with its Tennis Courts is just steps from this property. Different Spots where you can rent bikes from automated machines. Lastly, all beach related attractions are one minute away. Restaurants, bars & boutiques plenty at Las Olas. Galleria Mall is three minutes away with its fine stores.
