Our new home is a complete custom design build and will be more than 6000 sq.ft., twice the size of our current vacation home with a long list of quality features, amenities and appliances.

The home is configured as a 6 bedroom (7Bed) 5 Bath layout with additional room for convertible beds.

Guests will enjoy a very luxurious environment situated on three levels with minimum ceiling heights over 9 feet on each of the three levels and over 24 feet within our great room in the center of the home.

Sun beds will also be provided for a relaxing poolside experience.

The entire home including the ground floor living area and pool will be considered a Smart Home and is currently wired for a truly unique and futuristic audio and video experience that will feature Control4 home automation.

We expect this feature to be fully completed by spring 2015.

There are also future plans in the spring of 2015 to build a complete Chef’s Prep Kitchen and full service outdoor kitchen and bar.

The Chef’s Prep Kitchen may be utilized as a professional cooking facility to accommodate larger groups and specially catered events.

The Chef’s Prep Kitchen will feature a large 36” glass front Sub Zero fridge with a full sized Freezer, along with a gas Chef’s Grill, Professional grade appliances, Large pots, pans and other necessities for any discriminating food connoisseur. Since the Chef’s prep kitchen will be away from the main entertainment and dining facilities of the home, you will have plenty of room to enjoy the property including the main kitchen and outdoor kitchen while your food is being prepared.

All in all, this estate will be designed for quality luxury entertaining as well as pure enjoyment of one of Miami’s finest waterfront communities.

About the Upper East Side: The Miami Beach Upper East side is growing and evolving as a trendy tropical neighbourhood. We're 5 minutes away from a Publix for all your grocery needs, 10 minutes from Costco in case you want to indulge in some 'family' sized shopping. 5 Minutes away from Miami Shores Golf and Country club that has a fun and challenging 18 hole course at very reasonable rates.

We're also very central to everything including the airport. Anything that you'd want to do in Miami is no more than 15 minutes away including the airport ride from MIA. We would certainly recommend renting a car for your stay as it will undoubtedly save you money as opposed to taking a taxi, but if you choose to cab it, you will not spend a fortune getting around.

As we are on the inter coastal waterway, the premiere attraction here is water. Ask about the various water sports you can indulge in within the neighbourhood including having private use of our 60' Sunseeker Predator.

The property is located on a live spring fed river and home to lots of aquatic life. See Manatee, dolphins and a variety of fish swimming and jumping from the private dock in the back yard.

If you like sunshine, our backyard faces south so you get plenty of sunshine from sunrise to sunset.

This is truly a property to enjoy and experience all Miami has to offer.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at 416-877-9988.

    Perfect Family Holiday

    Our family of 12 ranging from age 9 months to 90-years old spent a wonderful Christmas week at John's house. It was even better than advertised. John was so prompt in responding to every question and thorough with reservation details and instructions that we felt very secure with the whole renting procedure. There were so many places for us to gather together as well as be alone. There was seating for 12 inside and out where we ate our delicious meals cooked in the well-appointed kitchen or on the gas grill outside. We enjoyed cocktails around the large bar under the lanai, lounging in the Adirondack chairs on the dock while watching the boat traffic on the canal and relaxing on the shady porch. The living was huge and TV great, but we only watched a little Sunday football. Too much else to do outside! Specifically the pool; clean, perfect temperature and used 12 hours a day. Children and adults were in and out from 7am to 7pm. There were a couple of days people never left the “compound". But when we did the Design District and Bal Harbor were a mere 15 minutes away. The beach was about 5. It was also very easy to get to airports, Costco and Publix. The property manager, Randy, was incredibly friendly and helpful. He was there to greet us and show us around, answered all questions, accepted a package when we were out and mailed clothing left behind. Incredible service. On day 2 the 6-year-old announced “I wish this were my house", we all nodded in agreement. We had such a good time we have already reserved this beautiful home for next Christmas.

    Key West Meets Miami...The Perfect Holiday

    This home was perfect for planning a family members 50th birthday bash for 9 people. John, the owner, was easy to communicate with and quick to respond to our emails about pricing, availability,checkin/checkout. When we arrived John was great and allowed us to come a little early since no other tenants were there and our flights arrived in the am. The drive to the property is easy from the airports. Upon arrival we were met by the property manager and owner. Everything is key pad access. The property's landscaping was impeccable. Once inside we were impressed the open layout of the downstairs, the artwork, the attention to detail, the hardwood floors, spacious kitchen, and amazing sound and entertainment system. The home had 5 bedrooms which was perfect for our group. The backyard felt like paradise. The pool was refreshing, the outside grill and bar with seating for 10 at the table and 10 at the bar was great as well as multiple lounge chairs and a hammock. Some would argue you never need to leave the house. At the end of the backyard is a beautiful dock with a beautiful 60 foot sunseeker yacht. The first day we were there construction workers were working on the home next door that John is almost done building as a second 10 bedroom rental property. It was a little noisy and we called John and he took care of it immediately. We chartered the yacht and took it out on Saturday. This was by far the highlight of everyones trip. John is easy going and took us on a great tour of the megamansions and city of miami by boat. We then anchored at a sand bar and just relaxed for 5 hours with beer, food, friends, and the sun. My wife and I have chartered boats in other locations around the world and this was by far the best. John was early to pick us up and had no rush on getting us back to the house. He is very flexible and sitting on the bow cruising through the miami high rises is quite an experience. South Beach was about a 20 minute drive and was easy to get to. John recommended an excellent Steakhouse, Prime 112. This vacation spot I think is perfect for families, friends, reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties. We are already trying to find a week to return with more of our family. My time to enjoy the property and cook at home, definitely charter the yacht for at least a day. Rent a car for trips to beach and South Beach. My only regret...not being able to stay longer.

    Perfect Girls Getaway Miami Destination

    I recently stayed at John's Miami House with 6 other girlfriends and cannot recommend this property and the owner highly enough. This destination was absolutely perfect for our Girl's Getaway on so many elements. - The property is very clean, high-quality and well-equipped. The pool and outdoor living space was ideal for lounging at the home, but we were close enough to enjoy the nightlife and restaurants in South Beach. The property was spacious, modern and exactly what you desire for Miami beach ambiance. - We absolutely recommend renting the yacht! John and his awesome property manager Randy took us out for an amazing day of touring Miami and relaxing on the water. Paddle boards, floating rafts, sun loungers, music will not be disappointed! - John is one of the most hospitable, friendly and genuine property owners I've ever encountered. He was great with pre-arrival questions, made sure our needs were handled and was always offering a helping hand on site. My girlfriends are ready to come back next year, and John is building an even larger property immediately next door, which we can't wait to see! Thanks John and Randy for a 5 Star vacation!

    Great Fourth of July Holiday!

    What a great place to relax and take it easy for a few days! The house was very nice and the grounds immaculate. We arranged for the owner to take us out on the boat to see the fireworks on the 4th and they were the best I've ever seen. Two displays going on simultaneously on both sides of the boat reflected off the water! Try the Schnitzel House German restaurant while you are there. It's only a block or two away.
