About Shani King
My wife and I grew up across the country from each other - me in Boston, and my wife in Oakland, California. But we made this beautiful city our home after meeting in San Francisco and living in Gainesville, Florida. While we always miss the friends and family back home, we love Miami, and we have not stopped raving about the wonderful things this city has to offer.
Shani King purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Shani King chose Southwest Coconut Grove
Location! Location! Location! My wife and I fell in love with this property because it sits under the picturesque shaded canopy of Main Highway in Coconut Grove, only two short blocks from the finest restaurants and watering holes on Commodore Plaza. We love that we can walk to Coco Walk and take a quick ride over to the beautiful beaches on Key Biscayne.

Cozy little cottage in a great location.
We had a very positive experience renting this bungalow. Shani met us when we checked in and even stopped the traffic for us so we could back into the parking spot which was right off Main Highway. I was worried at first about driving in and out of this spot, but because of the great location, we walked to everything and the day we left the traffic was light so had no problem getting out of the parking spot. The day before we left, we discovered two cockroaches on the floor which is not particularly unusual for southern Florida as we have experienced this in other rentals. We notified the owner (Shani) and I have no doubt that he attended to this quickly as the cottage was very clean and seemed very well taken care of when we first arrived. My only concern about this place is that there is no view. The cottage is located behind the main house with a locked gate completely surrounding the property. This made for a very safe location, but no view. However, the bay, marina, and parks are all walking distance.
Cozy little cottage
We had a wonderful visit to Coconut Grove. The location of the cottage is perfect for an easy stroll to all the local attractions and restaurants. Don’t miss visiting Vizcaya. It was amazing! We had some unusual events and Shani and Gabby went above and beyond to take care of us. They are very profession and kind. We hope to return next February.
Thank you for taking such great care of us!

My husband and I visited Miami for a wedding. We stayed 4 nights. Our flight was very delayed and we arrived at the cottage at 11pm. I messaged Shani about the delay and she assured us it was no problem. Entering the cottage was very quick and easy. I was pleasantly surprised when we turned on the lights that the cottage looked exactly like the pictures, if not better, a bit more spacious than it appeared. So that was nice. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us, perfect after a long day of travel with multiple delays. The smell that some of the other reviewers talk about is definitely there, not sure what it is, perhaps from the surrounding plants, it's distinct. Cleaning out the tree droppings surrounding the cottage may take care of that but honestly it wasn't a huge issue except that some of our laundry came back smelling like it and had to be washed upon arriving home because it was very distinct (not bad just distinct). This is the only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5.
The cottage was VERY clean. Linens were super clean. Floors super clean, no dust, nothing! That's a huge plus! This cottage is very close to all the main places in Coconut Grove. Its a quick 10min walk or a 2 min drive. Very centrally located. The driveway and gate are a bit tricky but we got in and out multiple times a day and night with no problems. The garden and trees surrounding the cottage were very nice to come out to every morning, very peacful. My husband and I wanted to stay somewhere cozy since we were taking a little break from our kids and enjoying some alone time while in Miami, and this adorable cozy cottage perfectly suited our needs and wishes. The price is right and I would highly recommend it anyone and we will defintely want to stay here again on our next getaway.
Thank you Shani and Gaby.
Sincerely, The Foxes.
Great Place to Stay!
We stayed at the cottage for 2 weeks in December and really enjoyed our time there. The location was perfect, close to restaurants, parks and shopping area. Shani and Gaby were great hosts, they communicated with us well and were there for any questions. The cottage was clean and had all amenities described. We would stay there again on our next trip.
The property was perfect!
It was so clean and there wasn’t anything that we needed that wasn’t already available for us. The cottage was located on the owners property and it was still really private. The location was close to restaurants and very nice if you want to walk around. The airport was fairly close as well as the beach. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone. It’s kind of small but comfortable for three of us. It accommodates 4 just fine. Thank you Shani and Gabriela our stay was wonderful.
Short weekend for Homecoming
We loved our stay at the Cottage. It's so close to Coconut Grove. We could walk to every restaurant and bar easily. The walk is about 5min. The parking spot for the car is small. We drive a Jeep Wrangler and it fit perfect. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We plan on staying here again next time we visit Miami.
