Elegant, comfortable - hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised by this property - the pictures don't do it justice. I personally love clean lines in my living space - this property is so beautiful I really can't write it enough. The cottage is within short driving distances to the beaches, shopping, downtown and the airport.

Beautiful pool - great place to meditate in the morning. The owners provide a binder with restaurants, night-life, beaches and their own personal favorites on cultural events. (A great time saver when making a decision on the run).

Hands down this is the nicest property I rented and I've rented in Paris, Upstate NY and Orlando. I look forward to returning to returning here in the future. Another aspect I like - the owners welcome you upon arrival - nice personal touch after your travels away from home and YES there is plenty of privacy.

I plan on coming back for sure! You were a wonderful host and did an incredible job with the décor! Miami was our favorite and we loved all your recommendations, bravo!! It was hard for us to go to St. Petersburg after leaving there, Miami is more exciting for sure! Next time we know where to stay. It has truly been a privilege to meet you, Misty

Hard to Return Home after Such a great experience and place

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This was my 3rd trip to Miami and I was traveling back to celebrate my birthday. I wanted to enjoy a nice relaxing weekend and previously I'd only stayed in downtown Brickell. I contacted Joe with a question and I got a response immediately and I knew that was a good sign so I booked. Everything was amazing. Joe met me upon check-in and gave me the tour and gave me some suggestions on places to eat. I've stayed at the new East Hotel, Epic Hotel, a place in the Brickell towers and this surpassed them all. First of you, you have your own pool to swim and relax, the cottage was perfect for me with a little fridge, nespresso, little speaker for music. I was in heaven. I generally just sat out by the pool and read and swam and enjoyed a cold beer. I got a great nights sleep in the bed and I'm 6'2 so it was big enough and very comfortable. I love the neighborhood and you can walk to Publix market for food, Starbucks if you want coffee and when you want to head to south beach or downtown, you can get an UBER with no problem. This is a perfect detach from being in those busy areas of Miami and allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. I read reviews sometimes I think they're unrealistic in their expectations. I'd live in the cottage if I can!!!

Comfortable with perfect hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Joe is very attentive to his guests. He was easy to reach and very helpful. The room is beautifully decorated and comfortable. We only stayed a short one night as we were passing through to Key West but Joe heated the pool for us so we could take a late night dip to relax. The bed was comfortable and the pool relaxing. Would enjoy some thicker curtains across the sliding doors for privacy even though it is very private. Also the house is close to train tracks. Did not bother us but just a little heads up for anyone who needs complete silence. You will hear the train at night.

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Joe was a great host. He met us with the keys, gave a quick tour and then other than a few texts exchanged here and there, he disappeared. There was even a back entrance and parking spot, so we really felt like the place was ours. Joe had a guide book with personal recommendations for activities and restaurants. And we went to a lot of them, which made us feel like we were living like locals with his insider information. The guest house had a small fridge and coffee maker. The bed and linens were as comfortable as a hotel. The guest house was super clean and adorably decorated. Since we were there for 3 nights, maybe a microwave would have been helpful to heat up leftovers, but it was a good excuse to keep exploring Miami restaurants. The pool was a perfect size and such a nice little private oasis. Even with the sheer curtains, all felt very private. Joe even offered a late check out, which was helpful. Overall, we were more than happy with our stay and would book here again. Thank you Joe!
