About: Hi, I'm Phil Stapleton and along with my wife, Suzy, (Nous parlons Francais!) welcome you for a stay you will not soon forget. Suzy and I started hosting this fine property in February, 2015. I have been a local artist for many years and Suzy is a French designer. Suzy has had the distinct privilege of working with notable French designers over her interesting career. We have expanded our energies to include hosting one of the most beautiful, quiet and exotic places you can find in prestigious S.W. Coconut Grove.
Why Northeast Coconut Grove, Miami, FL, USA:
The home was originally built as a cottage for overflow guests who would stayed at the El Dorado Hotel--2 doors down. Many famous patrons have spent nights at the El Dorado, including Dorothy Parker from the New York Algonquin Round Table. Who knows? Pirates, scalawags and scoundrels too...... Enjoy the use of our complimentary retro cruising bicycles---ride within minutes to the heart of downtown, CocoWalk, Dinner Key, Monte's Trainer's, Scotty's Landing (hidden burger gem on the water), fine dining, shopping and entertainment. Learn to sail at the nearby Coconut Grove Sailing Club World Famous Fairchild Tropical Gardens is minutes away by bike as well. A must see. Hang out on the property and see exotic birds, from the ever present peacocks to the often sighted green parrots and the occasional blue and gold Macaws. Hurricane Andrew (1992) released these beautiful parrots back into the wild after destroying the Miami Parrot Jungle.
