Villa Babette is situated in the quiet, private enclave of Hibiscus Island, tucked between South Beach and the mainland. This exclusive residential neighborhood began as a man-made island in Biscayne Bay in 1922 and is now home to celebrities and the wealthy and noted for its elegant and upscale lifestyle. This 'villa-hotel' provides all the privacy and comfort of a private retreat, combined with five-star hotel services- including a dedicated butler, fine linens and bath products, mini-bars, and a business center.

The breathtaking outdoor areas of Villa Babette are beautifully landscaped, with meandering paths surrounded by tropical gardens and stately palm trees enclosing a Spanish influenced fountain and courtyard... perfect for quiet reflection or an intimate conversation. The option is also there to set aside the atmosphere of seclusion and privacy this desirable property exudes and turn to the urban delights of Miami and the beach... literally a five minute drive away.

A sizeable terrace adjacent to the house has plenty of room for sunning or entertaining and features a heated pool. A fully detached, one-bedroom guest house is close by, allowing travelling companions both proximity and privacy. A private dock at the edge of the property with a gorgeous view of the bay completes the stunning exterior.

The sumptuous interior of this home reveals Spanish motifs in the wooden detailing, tiled floors and elegant area rugs. A sense of comfortable luxury pervades throughout, bestowing a sense of indulgence without detracting from the cosy, relaxing atmosphere.

The main public rooms include a generously-sized living room with over-stuffed furniture, a large, fully featured kitchen and spacious dining room. The fusion of a warm and casual atmosphere with a sense of luxury found in the rest of the house extends to the three bedrooms. Each has an ensuite bath and is bright, well-sized and tastefully furnished.

Minimum length of stay requirements and rates are not negotiable.
