Miami’s Luxury Vacation Rentals

Visit SeattleAs you know, from reading my intro post, I help people rent out their properties. The majority of my clients are in Seattle because, well, it’s just easier to work with local clients. You might be thinking, “Is there really a market in Seattle for vacation properties?” Oh yeah. If you haven’t had a chance to visit Seattle yet, then you really should come check it out! We get plenty of vacationers that come here to experience the great culture of the city. Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked…

There are other companies like mine all over the world, and I’m not just talking about Airbnb. In fact, some companies cater to the needs of those who enjoy living a luxurious lifestyle. (I can’t wait for my company to achieve this kind of status!) One of the companies that I think is great is Royal Stays Miami. Royal Stays Miami provides luxury vacation rentals in Miami. I think the biggest difference and the greatest thing about working with a company like this is that you know exactly what you’re getting before you arrive. There are no surprises at check-in – you truly get what you pay for.

Miami Villa RentalsThere are, like, a thousand reasons why people vacation in Miami. I personally love going for the beach and the all the Latin flavors. Since I still visit South Florida several times a year, I try to make at least one of those visits a “splurge” visit, which basically means I treat myself to a luxury vacation rental somewhere along or near the beach. Royal Stays Miami makes it easy to find what I’m looking for. From their website I can search for properties in specific Miami neighborhoods, as well as by specific property types (villa, anyone?). I can also search by number of bedrooms and bathrooms, which is great, since I’ve definitely used that feature when I vacationed with a few of my girlfriends.

Google TranslateJust last year, Royal Stays Miami actually opened up their own “apartment hotel,” which is such a great idea. (What do you think I should name my future apartment hotel?) It’s called “The Belleza Hotel,” which translates to “The Beauty Hotel” – thanks Google translate! The hotel is located on Miami Beach and is just two blocks away from the beach. The rooms are available in everything from studio layouts to three bedroom layouts, which makes it great for a quick solo trip or a fun party weekend with friends. I know I’ll be checking it out sometime soon!

Now, I know it’s not wise to help promote my competition, but since I’m not really with luxury rentals just yet, I think it’s safe to say that you should check out Royal Stays Miami. They can help you find a cool place to stay while you’re in Miami or they can help you list your luxury property.

A Doggie Vacation! ?>

A Doggie Vacation!

FloridaI don’t think I’ve had the chance to talk to you guys about one of my very best friends yet, so it’s about time I introduce you to Mr. Fluffernutter. Mr. Fluffernutter is a six year-old shih-tzu and my furriest friend yet. I love him to pieces! I pretty much take him wherever I go, since he’s a good boy and knows how to behave himself. I even take him on my business trips to Florida! Unfortunately, Mr. Fluffernutter can’t always come with me to my meetings, which is why I went on a hunt for a reliable pet sitter a couple of years ago.

When I first began looking for someone to take care of my beloved Mr. Fluffernutter, I used this list of 10 Things to Look for in a Pet Sitter to help me narrow down some good candidates. Most of them were pretty obvious (experienced, trustworthy, and sensitive), but it was nice to have this as sort of a checklist. I finally came across TLC Pet Boarding, which is based out of Davie, Florida. What intrigued me the most about TLC Pet Boarding is that, unlike other dog boarding facilities, they weren’t a kennel facility. Instead, they provide a home-like atmosphere that includes open indoor and outdoor spaces. Mr. Fluffernutter is not a fan of crates or kennels, so right away, I knew I had to check this place out.

Pet SittersThe place is huge! There’s a one-acre, fully-fenced backyard, which means plenty of space for all of the dogs to play. It was so much fun to see them all jumping around and having a great time. Mr. Fluffernutter was really excited! (Mr. Fluffernutter likes to play for short periods of time, so when he’s done playing with the other dogs, the caretakers at TLC Pet Boarding will make sure he gets some great relaxation time indoors.) To be honest, this place is like a doggie getaway!

Okay, so I’m going to sound like a crazy dog mom right now, but…oh well! I love-love-love the special services and features that TLC Pet Boarding offers. For example, whenever I leave Mr. Fluffernutter there, I always request to have webcam access to him, which basically means I can see how he’s doing pretty much whenever I want. Also, I love that the dogs can have the option of having their birthday’s celebrated Pet Groominghere. What better way to celebrate your birthday than with a bunch of your favorite furry pals?! Finally, TLC Pet Boarding offers dental, dog training, and pet grooming services. I just love the all-in-one concept of this facility.

I don’t typically leave Mr. Fluffernutter for days on end. Like I said, he goes with me everywhere, but I do drop him off for doggie daycare all the time. I think he loves being able to socialize with other dogs and to have someone love on him when his mommy is busy.
