About Sabin Bokus

As former guests of this house under the previous ownership, we fell in love with the place, and begged to buy it from the owner, who finally relented. Naturally we couldn't be happier! As a home-away-from home for us, we also want to share it with you. Since we are a family that loves eclectic, colorful communities and people, we have also fallen in love with Miami, which certainly matches these descriptions.

Though I am from the deep south (Mobile, Alabama, and New Orleans), and my wife is from France, the pan-latin culture that permeates Miami is something with which I became familiar when I was a child when I lived in Merida, Mexico. In college I also lived in Puerto Barrios Guatemala, and then later worked in Panama, Spain, etc, while also studying Cuba in graduate school in Washington, DC.

It is these experiences that have drawn us to get to know and love the Miami Mix of Cuban, Haitian, Venezuelan, Brazilian, Colombian, Nicaraguan, and Salvadoran communities.

I will help you discover and appreciate all of this as well!

Sabin Bokus purchased this house in 2016

Why Sabin Bokus chose Miami

It is so well-located, just 20 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from the Key Biscayne Causeway, 5 minutes from Calle Ocho, 10 minutes from the center of Coconut Grove, and 10 minutes from Brickell and Downtown Miami, that one can easily discover the real Miami in a very short period of time.

The house itself has original pre-war details, like hardwood floors, and original moldings, but is completely updated and modern, highly-functional and comfortable. The fact that the pool is only 3 feet from the house helps too! Hop in the outdoor shower, and right into the pool!

Clean Cozy and Relaxing

I can't wait to go back! The owner was great stayed in contact and gave great recommendations. The property is clean and very comfortable. My group loved the property and many are already planning their own trip back. It served as an excellent base to explore Miami and a relaxing refuge to relax from our experiences.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed for a girls weekend and the house was perfect! Sabin was courteous, extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the area. The house was well equipped and in a perfect location, we are already trying to plan another trip here together again!

Fantastic home for a laid back vacation; wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We were incredibly satisfied with the quality and comfort of this home, but more importantly we were well taken care of by Sabin and his team on the ground in Miami. The home itself is well-appointed, clean, comfortable and perfect for a small family. We took advantage of the thoughtfully designed outdoor spaces, the pool and the casita which was perfect for our babysitter to have her own privacy. Sabin provided a ton of great recommendations, especially the beaches at Bill Baggs State Park and the local eatery at El Palacio de los Jugos. His house book and instructions on how to maintain the property during your visit are detailed and incredibly helpful. I have no hesitation about recommending this home to anybody looking for a vacation rental home.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Sir. Being able to provide guests with a little direction with regard to how to enjoy Miami, especially in an authentic way, is very important to me. All too often people confuse Miami with Miami Beach, when, in reality, the two are completely different cities. Miami is its own world, with distinct neighborhoods, and can be very homey if that is what people are looking for. Our house, because of its super-central location, only 20 minutes from the airport, only 5 minutes to the Cuban main drag (Calle Ocho), or Brickell, and a walk down to the center of Coconut Grove and Biscayne Bay, is perfect for exploring Miami as a whole. Naturally, however, there is no need to leave the house if all you want to do is relax by the pool. I think your family did both, and I hope that you will come back to do it again. We love guests who appreciate our place. Thank you so much again for your stay!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Miami to visit and tour the University of Miami. The house/property was perfect for our stay. We felt safe and were in a quiet neighborhood. The owner stayed in touch with us to make sure we had the best experience. The owner also recommended sites around Miami which was great as we were not familiar with the area. Our overall experience was very positive. Will consider this property again in the future.

Charming house, very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five adult siblings and spouses from different parts of the US who stayed in Sabin's charming house for 9 nights in late January. The house was clean, well-decorated and comfortable, with multiple seating areas both inside and out. We really enjoyed having our morning coffee in the sun room overlooking the beautiful pool, and sitting in the living room after dinner. The kitchen was well-equipped, the beds were comfortable, the showers were good, the towels were plentiful, and the neighborhood was quiet. A bonus was having a large grocery store nearly where we could pick up prepared foods for dinner.

The location of the house was perfect for us because we had an ambitious tourist schedule and did not want to spend more time driving than was necessary. The house is located a few blocks from highway 1 and from the end of I-95 and the airport is a short drive away. We were able to easily and quickly reach downtown Miami and Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Little Havana, the Viscaya Museum & Gardens, and the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Because the house is south of downtown and very near the main roads, its location significantly reduced our driving time to the Everglades and Key West.

Sabin was available by text and phone to answer any questions and he gave us helpful suggestions about restaurants and tourist sites. We are unanimous in recommending his house, and would stay there again.
