The Miami Beach Dream Vacation Story

In 2012, while real estate was still somewhat affordable, I made a significant leap by acquiring a stunning oceanfront apartment in Miami, starkly contrasting my Parisian upbringing. As the renovations unfolded, I frequently traveled from Paris to Miami, captivated by the city’s enchanting allure.

Faced with a decision, I weighed the options: turning the apartment into an investment property, a convenient pied-à-terre, or perhaps, eventually, my primary residence. My parents were skeptical about the substantial funds I poured into renovations. Yet, I was driven by a vision to offer an exceptional stay experience for my guests, a passion that soon became an obsession.

The Eiffel Tower is a symbol of architectural brilliance and Parisian culture, captivating visitors with its grandeur and elegance.

Eight years later, the apartment has not transformed into my primary home. Instead, it has found its place on various booking platforms, thriving remarkably. This journey has been enlightening; I’ve gained insights into travelers’ preferences, likes, and dislikes.

Running this business, I’ve been most intrigued by property managers’ and owners’ fixation on occupancy rates and return on investment. While these metrics are undeniably important, they often overshadow the potential risks from dishonest guests, leading to detrimental outcomes for owners. Similarly, tenants may find themselves shortchanged by a subpar experience.

The secret to success, I’ve discovered, lies in striking a delicate balance – satisfying owners while simultaneously identifying the ideal guests.

Late in 2023, I decided to list my place on this booking platform in addition to HomeAway VRBO, which has been very active for the last eight years.

Castle Milk Rentals is the ideal entry point for repeat clientele bookings. It no longer requires guest-to-owner vetting services, which are well handled by major booking platforms.
