About Annette M. McLean

Bill McLean and Annette Murphy McLean, owners. My family is one of the founding families of Miami Springs.

We have restored our family home to better than original condition. Annette grew up in this home surrounded by grandparents, and great grandparents. The Murphy family came to Miami Springs from upstate N.Y. in the early 1920's with 'Uncle' Glenn Curtiss (3 week drive). They were one of the first families to settle in Miami Springs.

Annette M. McLean purchased this house in 1940

Why Annette M. McLean chose Miami Springs

Our home has been home to five generations of our family. We love the small town and comfortable atmosphere. We have enjoyed living in Miami Springs for five generations and recommend this beautiful home to anyone looking to unwind, visit Miami and enjoy a perfect vacation!

This is not just a rental. We live there for part of every year.

What makes this house unique

Our home feels like home. You will find it comfortable and easy to relax in. Come stay in a quiet and relaxing environment.

The Community Olympic Pool is only minutes away, The golf course is within walking distance, as is the center of the town. Great places to dine, shop, explore. Walking paths are everywhere! Historic Glenn Curtiss Mansion is now open. Enjoy Hialeah Race Track, the beaches and many other unique attractions.

Miami Springs used to be a suburb of Miami. Miami has grown around it. So within this huge metropolis is this little oasis of 'olden days;' complete with a park in the middle of town with a bandstand/gazebo in the middle. Shops, markets and restaurants circle this park. This park is an easy walk from our house. On weekends there is a farmer's market set up there.

When driving around the Springs I wave at other drivers and they wave back! Smile at folks in the store and they smile: Small Town!

Then when we want we 'cross the boarder' into Miami and wow: giant city and all the hustle bustle fantastic places to eat and see- minutes away. I love Miami Springs! Bill McLean

"Relaxing, quiet and perfect way to start a vacation."

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home to attend a family reunion in Miami for a week and there are no words to explain but glad we stayed here. Very quiet neighborhood, nice good size home with plenty of space. We where only 10 minutes away from Miami International Airport which was perfect. We spent a lot of time in South Beach and Downtown Miami, Key West was a good 3 hour drive from the house and spent in all day there. Perfect home to rent instead of being in a hotel room and spending about the same price. I recommend this home with big families or good way to split with another couple. Very safe area and I am looking forward to comming back soon! Thanks for letting us stay in your wonder home! Property manager was very helpful and was available to answer any questions.
