Beautifully designed and landscaped, this very light and airy house with hardwood floors and bright white walls is packed with colonial charm.
The property features a main house and a back house. The main house has two living room areas, a formal dining room, a large kitchen with professional appliances, two offices, three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The back house has a large bedroom with a king size bed, a bathroom, a kitchenette with a living/pull-out couch area. The house can sleep up to 8 adults. Groups larger than 8 adults please abstain.
The minute we visited this house, we knew it felt right. It is sophisticated yet has a very relaxed and friendly vibe. Bright and airy, you feel like you are stepping into a tropical oasis as soon as you enter the front door. It's a perfect house for a gathering with family and friends.
What we loved also was the fact that the house is in a very calm and green neighborhood yet you are literally minutes away from the hustle and bustle of South Beach. We can walk to restaurants and the beaches, and all shopping and cultural activities are minutes away by car.
We are from Scandinavia and traveled to Miami with our young kids (2 and 5) and their grandparents over the busy New Years holiday period and stayed for 10 days in this beautiful understated luxury Miami home in a quiet leafy and well appointed neighbourhood off Pine Tree drive. We wanted a place where we could relax and hang out away from the crowds but also have as a base to enjoy all that Miami beach and Miami have to offer. We chose to have a car and everything was a short drive away. It is an easy 10 min walk to the beach in front of the Standard Miami. Many great restaurants walking distance (Faena/Standard/Soho House etc). And of course Miami has Uber....
The house itself is gorgeous and has real charm and has been lovingly restored with well conserved period details throughout and combines very tasteful decoration (think tropical chic) with a relaxed and welcoming feel. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and spacious and was perfect accommodation for a large family. The living and dining areas are great for a family get together and meal. The large kitchen is great for cooking and family/TV room was a cosy place to start out the day and hang out with the kids. The outside porch was wonderful to just relax with a coffee or glass of wine with a view on the lush garden and big pool. Our host Fiona was great at communicating promptly at reservation and giving us all the information we needed for a perfect stay and arranged a seamless check in and check out. We highly recommend this Miami gem, and will definitely be wanting to stay here again.
The home is absolutely beautiful. It has plenty of space, perfectly decorated, and has all the amenities you could need and more. Conveniently located, it's a short distance from South Beach, shopping, and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and always responded quickly to me. All in all, it was the perfect stay.
Fiona is amazingly helpful and responsive. I really felt like a long time friend totally at home.
More importantly, the house is absolutely GORGEOUS. I don't think the pictures quite do it justice. It is impeccably decorated, incredibly homey and spacious, and really fun to hang around with friends and family. I was convinced that moving to Miami is the best next stage in my life, just by this incredible house!
I would definitely go back again and again. Its a ten minute walk to the beach and nearby to everything else you could want.
Initial impression: booking the property was very easy. I had a few questions prior to booking the stay, Fiona was helpful in helping get the questions answered and responded in a punctual manner.
Prior to arrival: Fiona (homeowner) checked in with me. She was very informative on tips and how to access the home/ amenities most effectively. Also touched base on what I should expect so there were no mysteries upon arrival.
The home: Instructions provided made it easy to get into home. The home itself is situated in prime location. Walking distance to most places (ie. grocery stores etc) THE HOME IS BEAUTIFUL! can't express this enough. Her design selections were inspiring while providing a family friendly feel. The home layout was a little confusing at first, but the house is perfectly laid out for entertaining/ keeping sounds away from the bedrooms. The only thing is that it was very hot and I think it's because it's hard to cool such a large home. So we frequently showered or swam to cool off. Speaking of, her pool/ grounds were perfect! The pool guy came to clean on the Friday. I appreciated her leaving water for us to use and ample access to kitchen necessities.
Drawbacks: ran out of hot water, the cottage space was hot and stuffy (had a weird smell), and some floor boards were heavily worn and super loose.
Overall: I adore Fiona and Love her property! the two together make a winning team! She made herself more than available the entire trip and had such an ease about her that made me feel so welcome... She really made my trip a special one and for that I am GRATEFUL!
Will definitely book with her again, should i return to Miami, and refer her to all my friends and family :)
Cheers and Happy travel.
This was the perfect house for a getaway! We wanted a place that could accommodate our family which includes- nana- 4 grandkids including 2 teenage girls, a toddler and a five year old and their parents. This house was it! Beautiful aesthetic while remaining family friendly and comfortable for all. love the outdoor space ! Convenient location. We had very good communication with the owners and would love to return next year.
My family and I had a fantastic time staying at this property. Very spacious living and dining areas and great outdoor patio overlooking the pool, which the kids loved. House was very clean with a homely feel. Kitchen well stocked. Great suggestions on where to eat and drink with property accessible to most things via a short uber ride. Watch-out for the mosquitos outside though!
Just a few minutes away from all the South Beach has to offer: the beach, restaurants, bars, shopping, the golf course, the New World Symphony and much more!
