We had a great stay at Ed's place. This older home has lots of character. Very private with a great outdoor space. Ed was a great host and checked in with us frequently. We would definitely stay here again.

Charming Visit

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our visit. We were within minutes of walking distance to the quaint Coconut Grove downtown area with lots of cool eateries and shops. The home itself was so charming. Every attention to detail has been thought of...beautiful art work, décor, the seclusion of the outdoor pool was fabulous. Just such a nice place to rest, relax and/or catch up with family/friends. A true vacation! The owner (Ed) was super courteous and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place, well stocked with all the necessities and a great location. We stayed during the Coconut Grove Art Festival so very easy to walk to all the action. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet get-away!

Perfect place to stay in a perfect neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two month in this charming property and everything was as described. The place is big and bright, the rooms are very comfortable and there is everything you need, including a lovely pool, to have a very pleasant stay. We didn't know Miami and we loved Coconut Grove which is very convenient to visit Miami. The shops and restaurants are very close as well as all the places of interest to see in Miami. If you want to avoid the crowds of Miami Beach, Coconut Grove is the place to be. Edesio was very helpful and always on the lookout for our well being. We absolutely recommend this place if you want to stay for a short term or long term rental.

Lovely and restful hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous rental that manages to be completely relaxing but plush simultaneously. The house was so lovely and comfortable, that at times we found ourselves relaxing on-site rather than following through on plans to explore. The house was beautifully equipped so when we had a dinner with friends there I felt as if I were in my own home. Loved having the bikes to ride around in the neighborhood. Edesio is a true pleasure to deal with and I am grateful he rents out this lovely home to guests.
