Enchanting, charming, spacious, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a terrific Coconut Grove location. The canopy of trees that greets you driving south on Le Jeune Road was just the beginning! In a neighborhood with a tropical-like setting, this home is deceptively spacious. I loved the artwork (many are creations of the owner), and the outdoor area is true serenity. No need for an alarm clock. The morning calls of wild peacocks may wake you. Don't let that be a deterrent. It's fascinating to watch the male peacock dance for the females. Make time during your stay to enjoy the backyard/garden. The string lights at night make it extra enchanting. The beds were comfortable; the kitchen appropriately stocked; the wifi totally reliable. We weren't overly familiar with Apple TV, but television was not an important amenity to our group. We made use of the bicycles to visit Coco Walk, the piers/marina, and just general exploration. This home is not far from Matheson Hammock Park where you can get a beach/lagoon-like experience if you don't want to go as far as Virginia Key or Key Biscayne. Beach towels weren't "obvious," but we made do with towels from the linen closet. It was easy to use a ride share service from the home to Key Biscayne and Miami Beach/South Beach where parking can be tricky. I loved this home and location and highly recommend it. Last and certainly not least, the owners were responsive to all my inquiries.

Wonderful house in a beautiful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peacock jungle paradise house and would hope to stay again in the future. We were visiting the area for my daughter’s audition at the Frost School of music at UM and it was a very convenient location proximate to the U. We could have ridden the bikes offered to us to coconut grove had we not been exhausted every day after sitting in on music classes all day. We were so happy to be able to come back to the house and relax and have dinner in versus going out. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything one would need.

While we were here, the owner Steve was staying in the garage/cottage next to the house and showed us around the house and gave us details for our stay. He also loaned us a chair and an umbrella when we wanted to go to the beach our last day. That being said, if a beach is on your agenda do bring beach towels as they didn’t have them. But we were welcome to bring along the bath towels which was nice.

The wild peacocks roam everywhere along Poinciana and are a treat to see. They clearly own the neighborhood. There is no cable TV, just the Apple TV which was fine for us. The backyard courtyard area was beautiful. They have pretty lights all over in the back and had we not been so tired every night we would have grilled out back and used that area more. Beds were very comfortable and shower was great.

Loved the house and hope my daughter chooses Miami for College so we can come stay here again!
