About Dennis Daley

I am a retired Air Force colonel and this was my mother's home. My family and I have lived in the Miami - Homestead area since 1982 and love the convenience to the Keys and Miami. We love the beach and boating and can offer great ideas for enjoying the area's attractions, plus we can offer great restaurant ideas.

Dennis Daley purchased this house in 1994

What makes this house unique

Miami and the Keys are very expensive places for lodging and we offer the chance to enjoy a longer visit and see more of the area (at a reasonable cost). Why spend more for lodging when you can use the money saved by staying with us on fishing trips, local eateries, and swimming with the dolphins!

2nd Stay at house in Homestead -- Would rent again!

  • 5 of 5

Special thanks to Dennis again for a wonderful stay in Homestead. We rented this house for the 2nd time in November 2016. Everything went WONDERFUL with our stay, deposit promptly returned after our departure. We loved the screened in patio and BBQ outside--we spent much more time out there this stay. The house is clean, neat and tidy and everything worked great. Internet and Cable are good. We went to the community center again to use the pool and toured around the area which is central to go in many directions easily. The helpful tourist spots was great for additional exploring. We would rent this house again in a minute! Thank you Dennis. From: Ray and Jenn

Great place, awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

Dennis is awesome. Very accommodating and flexible. Great location, clean, and friendly neighbors. I had a bit of bad luck with my vehicle, brought it into the service center, forgot the keys to the house in the car. I was stuck outside. I notified Dennis and shortly thereafter he was able to get me into the house where the 2nd set of keys awaited.

My 1st experience with (or any other similar) and very happy with it.

Thanks, Dennis, I appreciate your attention to detail and responsiveness!

WONDERFUL Stay, Would recommend to Everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this home, the house is well maintained, secure & safe in a quiet neighbourhood. The access to the pool & community center was wonderful for the days not out exploring the area. The location was very close for access to many areas, South Beach, Key West, etc. The house was very clean and stocked with most necessities and the cable and internet were excellent. All appliances worked well and we would and will be DEFINATELY stay in Dennis' home again. He was so friendly, accommodating and helpful before/during and after our stay. The deposit was returned promptly. Thank you again for having such a wonderful spot to share with visitors to the area!

We had a great stay at this place. The house was located in a quiet neighborhood and was convenient for exploring South Florida. Very clean and well stocked. We loved the screened in back porch and the beds were super comfortable. Dennis is very helpful and the rental went very smoothly and a quick return of our deposit. Loved it and hope we can stay again soon!

Villages of Homestead is a quiet and safe community that is called the 'Gateway to the Keys, Biscayne National Park, and the Everglades' - with tree lined streets, walking paths, and a home-town feel. This is the ideal location for travelers wanting to visit Miami, the Florida Keys, Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park and to enjoy the warmth of south Florida winters. This residence is a short drive to South Beach, and just minutes from orchid farms in the Redlands, Robert is Here fruit stand in Florida City, and golf at Keys Gate Country Club. Travelling to the Florida Keys is equally convenient to swim with Dolphins, enjoy backcountry flats fishing and kayaking, as well as some of the best deep-sea fishing in the world. Scuba diving (to include wreck diving) and reef snorkeling are available in Key Largo which is just short drive as well. For shoppers, The Falls open-air mall has upscale shopping and the movie theater is superb. Day trips to Coconut Grove and Coral Gables are equally entertaining, with a visit to Merrick Park and Miracle Mile a must for shoppers. The Homestead location provides complete and easy access to all the greater Miami and South Beach attractions, plus the national parks and Florida Keys - but at a reasonable cost and without the hustle and bustle of city traffic. It's is small-town with a great location.
