À faible distance de la villa, vous trouverez des épiceries grandes-surfaces remplies de fruits, légumes et poissons frais, de bons restaurants et, si vous avez le coeur à la fête, le «night-life» de Fort Lauderdale n'est pas très loin. Hélas! À la fin de ce délicieux séjour, il vous faudra bien retourner vers l'hiver et le froid. Mais vous aurez fait le plein d'une énergie bienfaisante procurée par le soleil, le confort douillet et la sérénité de Chez Sophia. Et bien sûr, vous rêverez d'y revenir bientôt!

Au plaisir,

Marie et Éric

Lived up to the promises, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week after Caribbean cruise here to recover & relax and the place was perfectly suited for the purpose!

The house was exactly as advertized and especially the kitchen was really professionally equipped - we couldn't think of anything that would have been missing from there. Bedrooms were spacious and the master bedroom with its own bathroom just great.

The favourite part of the house, however, was the pool area! The kids simply refused to come out of the water and us adults could spend time sitting by the pool either having dinner or conversating. The water was just perfect temperature and the pool itself was large enough even for adults to get some excercise in the mornings.

As for the location, the surrounding attractions (be it Panthers' game, the beach, that cool minigolf course at Delray Beach or even Everglades) are easily reachable by car but as an advice to non-locals, pls pay attention to rush hours; you can double your estimated travel time with poor timing or not being clever with the route selection.

Lastly, thanks to Eric who was constantly available and throughout our stay had time to answer our questions within minutes. Really appreciate it!

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back when we next time travel to southern Florida!

Owner's Response: Jarmo is the perfect guest for a vacation home owner. COMMUNICATION: First, he communicated his detailed needs a long time before his stay. This allowed us to get ready for his stay. From booking until his arrival, we stayed in constant communication, which was great! We, the owners, are always available for anything before, during and after your stay. ARRIVAL: Upon arrival, we like our guests to call us or text to make sure hat everything is perfect for a comfortable stay. Jarmo called from the house phone many times and we answered all questions quickly for his comfort. We want to make sure that our guests know everything about the house, pool, BBQ, TV, remotes, etc. fast to enjoy their stay as much as possible!!! This is your vacation! EARLY: Just like in any business, small issues can happen. When a guest call us early, it allows the owners to react and take action quicker. We had a small request to fulfill for Jarmo and everything went well. RESPECT/POLITENESS: Jarmo is highly respectful of the owners, the property, the content of the property. He had very cool experiences in Florida as you can see! Recommendation: Owners, based on my experience. I would recommend to host Jarmo in your property. Thank you Jarmo for staying with us. The owners.

Perfect vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the house of Eric and Marie. As February was a very warm month we spent most of the day outside on the patio, which was - to our pleasant surprise - screended!

The patio was great, the pool at a perfect temperature, so we could really relax.

The kitchen was perfect and had everything for a good meal. We never stayed that much at a vacation home to do our own cooking instead of going our for a lunch or dinner, Although there were many fine restaurants in the neighbourhood.

There were some minor issues that needed to be fixed, but Eric and Marie reacted prompt at our questions.

Thanks for that!

Perfectly Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay! From the minute we walked through the front door, we felt like we were at home (only without the snow). Perfect location whether you want to relax by the private heated pool or take a short drive or walk to the beach & ammenities. We were two families travelling together and this home was ideal! With a master suite & ensuite on one side of the house and two bedrooms & bathroom on the other, we each had our privacy when needed. Great family & entertaining space also. We look forward to more vacations at this home away from home!

Beautiful property, close to shopping and beach. The house was perfect for our stay - everything we needed to stay in and relax or go and explore. Large pool, comfy beds, great outdoor space. Eric was great to work with and we will visit again!

Beautiful, Large House in a Great Area

  • 5 of 5

This house is a dream for a relaxing vacation. Everything is exactly as pictured and depicted in the advertisement. The house is truly huge -- my group of 8 adults had more than enough room for everyone to stay comfortably throughout our long weekend trip. I was particularly impressed with how well-stocked the kitchen was, including expensive appliances you normally don't find in these rentals.

The heated pool outside is also very large and enjoyable. The whole backyard area is very secluded; we never saw or heard from a single neighbor the entire weekend. One thing that was great that I didn't catch on from the pictures was that the covered patio area is actually completely screened in. The large round outdoor table on the patio was the perfect place for everyone to gather together for a drink.

Overall, this was one of the smoothest VRBO experiences I've ever had, and the house was exactly as described. The owners, Eric & Marie, were also incredibly friendly and accessible for any questions we had; they were even kind enough to let us check in several hours early. I have no doubt we will be back to this property in the future!
