Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Homestead - Private Suite

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom close to beach

Need a vacation? Relax in this beautiful and highly reviewed apartment, minutes from the beach!

Clean, modern, and highly reviewed -- this "home away from home" is your affordable gateway to paradise! We are less than a 20 minute drive from some of the world's most beautiful beaches in Key Largo. If you are a nature lover, we're minutes away from Everglades National Park and Biscayne Bay. Ride your bike over to Biscayne Bay and pull up a chair on the beach.

This piece of paradise is designed for peace and harmony. From the moment you arrive, you will feel comfortable and welcome. We provide every guest with a booklet and history of Miami and Homestead with a listing of events happening that week or weekend of your stay!

Everything is private with your secluded entrance from the patio. Fridge, dishwasher, mini stove, washer & dryer, pots & pans, dishes, silverware, soap, shampoo, everything! Just pack your clothes and show up. Extended HD cable TV if you want to cuddle up at night and keep up with your favorite TV shows, along with free high speed wireless internet (>100 Mbps!). The living room comes furnished with a 46 inch flat screen TV and a large collection of DVDs to choose from - old and new movies alike! The cupboards have plates, bowls, silverware, and cooking utensils -- perfect if you want to stay in one night and make dinner yourself.

Upon arrival, Christina or Matt will welcome you into the apartment while answering any questions you might have. We give you the space you need. You will have both our cell phone numbers and we encourage you to text or call us with any questions or concerns. We're happy to provide recommendations on local restaurants or things to do like Airboat Rides or Beaches to check. We personally like the Beach at Mile Marker 88 in Key Largo, or the bike tours they have at Shark Valley! You can ride your bike alongside the alligators! :-)

Our town is known for its historic contribution to the development of South Florida as it served as a major hub for Henry Flagler’s railroad starting in 1903. Today the combination of its beautiful natural setting, lush tree lined streets and unique vernacular architecture all contribute to reminding visitors of the spirit of early South Florida communities. We think you will find that Homestead is a bustling city that still retains that charming small town feel.

Trollies run through Homestead and will take you to local shopping centers and even downtown. A shopping plaza is minutes away. Plenty of different restaurants close by. Italian, Mexican, American, Cuban, and Chinese food right around the corner. Pizza delivery is a phone call away.

If you want to take a nice leisurely walk, our neighborhood has lighted sidewalks that you can take a stroll on at night.

Conveniently located within driving distance to top destinations in South Florida.

About Matt and Christina

Matt and Christina bought this beautiful home in 2014. The apartment suite was not being used, so they designed the perfect "get away" for couples looking to explore South Florida. Christina decorated the apartment and our guests have raved about how beautiful the accommodations have been. We cater to respectable couples that want to relax and enjoy all that South Florida has to offer. Matt is a Software Consultant by trade and Christina works in Human Resources.

Why Matt and Christina chose Miami-Dade County

The apartment suite is beautiful!! We keep it very neat, clean, and orderly. It's way cheaper than the Marriott or Hampton Inn, yet nicer! :-) Don't just take our word for it though, read over the reviews that our recent guests have left about our apartment. Book your get-away today!

What makes this apartment unique

What are you waiting for? The sunshine state is where you need to be! :-) Close to Key Largo, Biscayne National Park, and the Everglades. About half the price of the Marriott or Hampton Inn & Suites up the road, we are the affordable 5-star location for snow birds looking for a little peace and harmony in South Florida!

Upon arrival, we will give you a list of attractions, restaurants, and things to do that we recommend. You'll have a wonderful time. Don't take our word for it though, look at the reviews of guests that have stayed with us to date.

Good place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A nice clean place that is in a good location for the Everglade's and the Key's. Clean and comfortable. Got turned around the first night and Christina talked us back in over the phone. She is very nice. Sure beats a motel for vacation. Would recommend.

Comfortable stay with lots of nice touches

  • 5 of 5

My husband, one-year-old and I enjoyed our stay at the apartment. There were lots of little extras (pamphlets and books about local attractions, small cooler and towels for the beach, snacks and candy, etc.) that made it much nicer than a hotel. The apartment was clean and inviting! We also liked the close proximity to the Everglades and Miami.

Lovely hosts and so very clean

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful little spot away from the big city. Came from Orlando, visited the everglades and then checked in and the next day went to Key West and back in a day without having to worry about booking an expensive hotel. We were actually able to park for free on Truman avenue and saw the sunset from a parking area just before the seven mile bridge on the way back to Homestead. Last day we rested, shopped and went to the nearby park for a swim.

The apartment itself was very clean and we appreciated the little extra's. I personally thought it was a much better choice than staying in Miami.
