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.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Property was well maintained with beautiful landscape & very quiet neighborhood. nice queen sized bed & air mattress. Joe our host was very nice & helpful. Cottage had a guest book with recommendations on restaurants, entertainment, beaches, etc. Pool is nice & can be adjusted by temperature. The only thing missing was a television, just for late night or early morning news/sports & a microwave. Unit also had a coffee/espresso machine and I-home as well as a mini fridge/freezer. Awesome shower head in the bath. Overall a wonderful experience, we will recommend this property to our friends and family & would be willing to stay here again.

Perfect location with 5 star hospitality

  • 5 of 5

As written before this private cottage is truly a hidden gem. The cottage is just as pictured but even more beautiful in person- starting from the walkway, your in awe with the gardens and it's natural beauty and then you enter your room and it's breath taking. Joe really took his time to make sure every detail was in place and perfect- the layout and interior design of the room was a page out of a luxury travel magazine. The room was equipped with everything and anything that we could have needed and more. The room was set up to such perfection that we didn't have a need to ask Joe for anything extra but he made it clear that if there was anything more he could do for us, to not hesitate to reach out to him.

The location of this beautiful cottage we found was absolutely perfect- it was literally no more then 20 min from anywhere we wanted to go. And with such amazing eatery locations local to the cottage we found some nights even more pleasant when we stayed in.

Overall if I could, I'd give this place 10 stars. This cottage and Joe totally exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be sure to stay here again for our next Miami trip.

A beautiful place in a great location!

The cottage was beautiful, private and peaceful! Few minutes away from downtown, Bal harbour and the beach. The owners communicate with us from day one, they were very courteous and friendly. I will definitely stay there again.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a little oasis to come back to after the madness of Miami. Firstly a note on Joe the owner - a pleasure to deal with from start to finish who answered all queries/questions quickly and nothing was too much trouble. The property is in Miami Shores which is around a $10 - $15 Uber away from Miami Beach and bar one issue with a non English speaking driver was very easy to order and arrived within 10 mins max. The property is great for two people, nicely decorated and the pool is a real bonus. While you would struggle to self cater Joe gave us some great recommendations for food all of which were a hit. Although this is essentially a guest house on someone's property you feel like you have the whole place to yourself and we never felt anything but total privacy. I would highly recommend this property and would happily return. Many thanks for a great few days
