Amazing!! What a home!!!- Amy L. , Posted: 11/01/2021
We enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Key Biscayne home!- Anonymous , Posted: 04/10/2019

We had an amazing vacation in Casa Serena, comfortable, clean and very cozy!!
Carla is being so nice and helpful with anything we need.
We would love to come back soon !- Ana S. , Posted: 08/21/2019
Fantastic all around. Great location, cute pool....really a relaxing space to spend time.- Senet B. from Larchmont, Posted: 05/01/2018
We had a great time. House was very clean, had lots of bathroom and kitchen amenities that I thought I’d have to shop for once we got there. Pool was great, although the vacuum was left floating in it. Minor complaints - lots of light bulbs were out and two smoke detectors were beeping all night long, on two separate nights. Annoying but easily fixed.- Michael B. from Old Bridge, Posted: 11/29/2018
We stayed at Casa Serena for 8 nights and were a family of 6. It worked perfectly - there was plenty of room for our children and we were a short ride to our family who live nearby. The house was well laid out and clean. Everything worked as we expected and we would definitely book again if we returned.- Anonymous , Posted: 10/31/2018
This is a beautiful house in a great location. The decor is eclectic and stunning. Everything was clean and the description is spot on. It's a short drive to beaches and the Seaquarium. The only thing missing were washcloths. If we come back to Key Biscayne, this is definitely where we will stay!- Catherine E. from Richmond, Posted: 07/03/2017
Great house, great location, perfect for our family- Anonymous from Moorestown, Posted: 12/26/2019
Lovely island. Even more elegant neighborhood. Fantastic home. Unusual for homes available for rent--very tasteful. Felt more like being in one's own home. Layout very conducive to family times. Garden lush. We rented a golf cart which was a plus. Used
the bikes. (Bring your own helmet). One issue to be aware of--not restroom in pool house and the other rooms are all set up better for couples than two children. We had no trouble making it work with 3 young teenagers, one elementary school child, 1 aunt,
1 grandma and parents. We will return which is the highest recommendation.- Nina F. from New York, Posted: 04/06/2016
We were absolutely delighted with this stay. The place is beautifully appointed and located in what is probably one of the best zip codes in the entire country. When a maintenance issue surfaced during our stay, a technician materialized almost immediately. I have managed a portfolio of short term rentals myself for 19 years. This property, and its management, are standouts.- Gerald (Alec) S. from Alexandria, Posted: 06/30/2022
Beautifully decorated and maintained home with an outstanding master suite, located in a great area. We enjoyed walking around Key Biscayne, and made it to the beach and the bay. Major grocery store is 5 minutes away. Nice to be away from the Miami highrises.- Anonymous , Posted: 11/15/2016
The minute you walk into this home you know you're in for something special! We enjoyed such a wonderful stay at Casa Serena...the house is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is fully stocked. The heated pool was an added plus. This is our second time in Key Biscayne - what a perfect way to explore miami from the comfort of a beach town! We rented a golf cart and enjoyed everything the key has to offer.- Antonia S. from Dayton, Posted: 05/11/2016
Great house for a family. We highly recommend it.- Anonymous from Westport, Posted: 02/28/2018
We stayed for a week with 4 grand children 2,3,4 and 8 and their parents. 10 people total.
The key Biscayne location is very nice and the house is decorated with great taste. Kitchen and common areas worked out very well. Master bedroom and bath are top notch.
We did follow the recommendation of renting a golf cart. It made the stay more fun and was a hit with the grand kids.
Our host welcomed us with a few bottles of wines which was a very nice surprise after our cross country flight.
That said, there are a number of negatives:
The casita cannot be construed as a fifth bedroom: it is closer to a garage for bikes than a bedroom. It is humid and reeks mildew. The kids ended up sleeping with their parents in the king bed. This house is sized for 8 at most to be comfortable. 10 is a stretch.
The other 3 bedrooms are served by a single small bath: we made it work. The kitchen is well equipped but pans need to be replaced.
The kitchen has a number details that need help: frying pans in dire need of replacement, dishwasher tray is missing wheels.
While there were some disappointments from the house, we still had a great time.
Key Biscayne has some great locations with nice Latino foods such as Patagonia Nahuen or Meating and a top gourmet grocery store Golden Hog.
Cape Florida is a must see destination!
The Frost Science museum was a hit with kids and adults.- Vincent P. , Posted: 06/18/2019
Casa Serena was the perfect location for our group of 5 friends who all turned 60 this year! The home itself is beautifully, tastefully, and personally decorated (none of that "I'm in a rental" feel). The beds very comfortable (not always the norm), and the lushly tropical courtyard with pool is the perfect spot for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. The kitchen was good for our purposes as we ate most meals out (especially the coffee and espresso machines!) but could use a few upgrades (we only found 5 dinner plates, for example). Located in a calm and upscale residential area, we took long walks around the neighborhood & used UBER to get into Little Havana & Miami during the day.
Geraldine (our host) communicated perfectly throughout and when we had a small issue with the TV, she responded swiftly and walked us through the fix. Cannot compliment her enough! The only negative is none of us felt the casita would work for a 5th bedroom (musty).
All in all, a 5 Star Stay for us & highly recommended.

Loved this rental home! The decor is interesting, inviting, and comfortable, providing many different place to sit together and also many nooks to enjoy a little alone time. The kitchen was stocked with most basic needs (including sharp knives), though a new set of pots and pans is suggested. Vacation Living provided excellent service and was very responsive to any needs we had. Loved the village of Key Biscayne! This was out third trip to KB and we will not hesitate to rent this home again if we return.- bob g. , Posted: 03/12/2018
Loved the house for my family and my young adult single friends.- MARCO B. from NY, Posted: 11/27/2018
