About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom close to beach

Need a vacation? Relax in this beautiful and highly reviewed apartment, minutes from the beach!

Clean, modern, and highly reviewed -- this "home away from home" is your affordable gateway to paradise! We are less than a 20 minute drive from some of the world's most beautiful beaches in Key Largo. If you are a nature lover, we're minutes away from Everglades National Park and Biscayne Bay. Ride your bike over to Biscayne Bay and pull up a chair on the beach.

This piece of paradise is designed for peace and harmony. From the moment you arrive, you will feel comfortable and welcome. We provide every guest with a booklet and history of Miami and Homestead with a listing of events happening that week or weekend of your stay!

Everything is private with your secluded entrance from the patio. Fridge, dishwasher, mini stove, washer & dryer, pots & pans, dishes, silverware, soap, shampoo, everything! Just pack your clothes and show up. Extended HD cable TV if you want to cuddle up at night and keep up with your favorite TV shows, along with free high speed wireless internet (>100 Mbps!). The living room comes furnished with a 46 inch flat screen TV and a large collection of DVDs to choose from - old and new movies alike! The cupboards have plates, bowls, silverware, and cooking utensils -- perfect if you want to stay in one night and make dinner yourself.

Upon arrival, Christina or Matt will welcome you into the apartment while answering any questions you might have. We give you the space you need. You will have both our cell phone numbers and we encourage you to text or call us with any questions or concerns. We're happy to provide recommendations on local restaurants or things to do like Airboat Rides or Beaches to check. We personally like the Beach at Mile Marker 88 in Key Largo, or the bike tours they have at Shark Valley! You can ride your bike alongside the alligators! :-)

Our town is known for its historic contribution to the development of South Florida as it served as a major hub for Henry Flagler’s railroad starting in 1903. Today the combination of its beautiful natural setting, lush tree lined streets and unique vernacular architecture all contribute to reminding visitors of the spirit of early South Florida communities. We think you will find that Homestead is a bustling city that still retains that charming small town feel.

Trollies run through Homestead and will take you to local shopping centers and even downtown. A shopping plaza is minutes away. Plenty of different restaurants close by. Italian, Mexican, American, Cuban, and Chinese food right around the corner. Pizza delivery is a phone call away.

If you want to take a nice leisurely walk, our neighborhood has lighted sidewalks that you can take a stroll on at night.

Conveniently located within driving distance to top destinations in South Florida.

About Matt and Christina

Matt and Christina bought this beautiful home in 2014. The apartment suite was not being used, so they designed the perfect "get away" for couples looking to explore South Florida. Christina decorated the apartment and our guests have raved about how beautiful the accommodations have been. We cater to respectable couples that want to relax and enjoy all that South Florida has to offer. Matt is a Software Consultant by trade and Christina works in Human Resources.

Why Matt and Christina chose Homestead

The apartment suite is beautiful!! We keep it very neat, clean, and orderly. It's way cheaper than the Marriott or Hampton Inn, yet nicer! :-) Don't just take our word for it though, read over the reviews that our recent guests have left about our apartment. Book your get-away today!

What makes this apartment unique

What are you waiting for? The sunshine state is where you need to be! :-) Close to Key Largo, Biscayne National Park, and the Everglades. About half the price of the Marriott or Hampton Inn & Suites up the road, we are the affordable 5-star location for snow birds looking for a little peace and harmony in South Florida!

Upon arrival, we will give you a list of attractions, restaurants, and things to do that we recommend. You'll have a wonderful time. Don't take our word for it though, look at the reviews of guests that have stayed with us to date.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a wonderful place to lay your head for the night or just relax! The homeowners have done a wonderful job supplying their guest with all the amenities they might need while they spend time in the area. We felt very welcomed from the moment we opened the door - our favorite type of music playing; lights on and even chocolates to welcome us. The private outside patio was very inviting and the neighborhood - quite. Although our reason for the stay kept us out of the apartment most of the time; the hospitality felt while we were there was very refreshing! We loved it; and it was perfect for us! Thanks - Matt and Christina! You are jewels!
