Why Phil and Suzy Stapleton chose Florida South East

Peacocks can be seen and heard near property. Flocks of parrots occasionally seen flying above property (Hurricane Andrew destroyed The Parrot Jungle, thus releasing these beautiful birds into the wild). Many of these released birds have made their home in the fauna of Coconut Grove!

Complimentary bikes are provided to explore nearby sites (Cocowalk, marinas, shopping, Matheson Hammock, Fairchild's Garden and just plain people watching).The walk/bike path is just a few feet away from our property

Village on Merrick Park (upscale mall) is a 15 minute drive

Free, private parking for three cars provided: maybe four if cars are small.

What makes this bungalow unique

This home is perfect for the extended family. The three structures, on property, are perfect for families or friends that prefer to be together, but want the privacy of separate living quarters on the same tropical and exotic property.

Built in the 1930's, this compound was visited by many successful writers and artists from around the world. The entire compound has been lovingly restored to beyond it's original beautiful beginnings.

Structure number 1…the front cottage, has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The upstairs suite opens to a large Brazilian wood deck which overlooks the screened- in dipping pool and patio area. The upstairs suite also boasts a Asian inspired spa-like bathroom with a large soaking tub and unique shower and private balcony. Pretty cool.

Full Chef's kitchen--Subzero Refrigerator, 36' Wolfe Gas Stove with griddle and full-size W/D. Spacious living room area with big screen TV. Private custom coral stone dipping pool with large patio area. Your BBQ and charcoal is ready to go.

Structure number 2…the back cottage has 1 bedroom and 1 bath. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, hot plate, microwave oven, sink, coffeemaker, and toaster. The dinette table area has a picture window view of the backyard. The backyard has a large redwood picnic table that seats eight comfortably. Perfect for al fresco dining.

Structure number 3…The Argentinean, hand crafted "Tiny House" is 120 square feet of complete hand made coolness. Four types of exotic wood comprise this little work of art. Come sleep in a tree fort. Dial down the air conditioner and climb up into the comfy full bed in the top bunk: another full size bed below. Fun, adventurous and very Coconut Grove groove!

Great house with perfect layout and convenient location - pictures didn't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, quiet and well appointed with all the modern conveniences for each room......everything needed to make us feel at home was there. The communication was outstanding and owners were very friendly and accommodating. We were in Miami for the boat show and we couldn't have been happier with the location and things to do ....Coconut Grove has a terrific selection of restaurants and for those who like to eat in, Whole Foods and Fresh Market are close by.

In short I highly recommend the house especially for groups that like to spend time together but still want to have some privacy. We'll definitely rent this place again next year if it's available.
