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.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Five of us: husband, daughter, her two daughters in their 20s and myself were very pleased with this beautiful house. For us the location was perfect: easily accessible to both the Perez Art Center and Biscayne Bay to the north as well as to our other daughter's family in Palmetto Bay to the south. Our granddaughters appreciated their morning jogs to Starbucks in Coconut Grove center while we old folks lingered over our espressos and grooved on the beauty all around us. Yes, we would be happy to return.

Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this home to be fantastic. The house is appointed beautifully, with everything a vacationer would want on a relaxing holiday. Attention was paid by Edesio to every detail..including candles and outdoor stemware. The linens and towels were fantastic. In addition it was extremely comfortable and very charming. It is a 10-15 walk and to Coconut Grove and a 20 minute drive to downtown Miami. The surrounding neighborhood is a tropical paradise. We would return to this home again and again.
