Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

WE DO NOT HOST POOL PARTIES OR LARGE GATHERINGS

The beaches and Miami nightlife are just minutes away from your private, luxurious guest cottage, with your own heated/cooled pool and garden to relax in while planning your next day’s adventure.

Our cottage is a completely detached guesthouse with a private entrance. The cottage consists of a large bedroom with a queen size bed, adjoining spacious sitting room and private bathroom (approx 700 sq. ft. total). Flowing white sheers and a wall of sliding glass doors open onto the pool--heated or chilled to your taste--which is exclusively yours to use during your stay. The entire pool and garden area are completely private from our neighbors.

Amenities include high speed wi-fi, Nespresso coffee maker, refrigerator with separate freezer compartment, iHome radio/ipod player, Sony portable bluetooth speaker and luxurious linens and towels.

Off street, covered parking is provided. You can get to Miami Beach in about ten minutes by car and you can get to South Beach in about fifteen minutes by car. Numerous restaurants and bars are within a five minute drive. Miami International Airport is 15 minutes away by car, Ft. Lauderdale International airport is 25 minutes away by car.

No pets please. Smoking is not allowed in the guesthouse but is allowed outside by the pool/garden.

Professional massage services by a licensed massage therapist are available on premises including poolside. If you are interested in massage during your visit please inquire in advance about availability and to schedule your appointment(s).

UPDATE: As a result of helpful feedback from our guests in May 2017, we installed retractable shades in the guesthouse,

which, in addition to the existing sheers insure our guests complete privacy and comfort.

PLEASE NOTE: For insurance reasons we are unable to accommodate parties or groups events.

Elegant, comfortable - hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised by this property - the pictures don't do it justice. I personally love clean lines in my living space - this property is so beautiful I really can't write it enough. The cottage is within short driving distances to the beaches, shopping, downtown and the airport.

Beautiful pool - great place to meditate in the morning. The owners provide a binder with restaurants, night-life, beaches and their own personal favorites on cultural events. (A great time saver when making a decision on the run).

Hands down this is the nicest property I rented and I've rented in Paris, Upstate NY and Orlando. I look forward to returning to returning here in the future. Another aspect I like - the owners welcome you upon arrival - nice personal touch after your travels away from home and YES there is plenty of privacy.

Perfect space for a Miami getaway

  • 5 of 5

My mom has stayed at this home numerous times, as my family and I live in the neighborhood. It's a quiet area, and the space is perfect for 1 or 2 people. The pool is gorgeous and very inviting. The owner/host is incredibly helpful and very easy to work with. My mom will definitely stay here again!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything on Homeaway is on point. A fantastic oasis, private pool is a dream, spotless unit, shops, amenities and 10 mins from the beach. Nothing is a hassle. By the way, the air-conditioning is absolutely fantabulous.

Side note: My hubby did not realize there was no tv but that made quality time even better and more relaxing.

You do hear the odd train going through at night with horns, but that is not a problem we're just letting people know.
