Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Coconut Grove - Jenkins House

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Meet the Jenkins House. An architectural gem in the heart of Coconut Grove. This unique two bedroom home has recently been updated to provide you with the charm of the mid-century modern era with all the amenities of today! Jenkins House has two bedrooms on the main floor, each with a luxurious king bed. High quality lines wrap you in comfort while you rest. The updated bathroom is on the main floor and boasts a soaking tub, large vanity with plenty of room to get ready and low flow toilet. For additional guests we are happy to provide you with a queen size inflatable mattress (available upon request).

The main floor living area is both comfortable and stylish with a new flat screen TV that has cable and Netflix. The home has central AC as well as a washer and dryer for your use. When you’re ready to enjoy the outdoors, Jenkins house has a large deck with outdoor grill. Enjoy a glass of wine and great conversation as you look out over the lush landscaping.

Built by THE pre-eminent Miami mid-century modern (MiMo) architect Alfred Browning Parker for Gwendolyn Sue Jenkins in 1953, this home is in absolute pristine condition with modern technological upgrades, central Nest A/C, jacuzzi and landscaping. Newly restored and decorated by mid-century expert Regina O’Brien from Los Angeles, the house is furnished as it would be in 1958. Stepping back in time with original 1950’s decorating, all in excellent condition, including the light fixtures, silverware and all decorative accessories. As if the house weren’t perfect enough, the previous owner is a noted landscape architect who poured his soul into the landscaping.

We have rented properties through VRBO many times always with positive results. The Jenkins House was the best so far. It was secluded and quiet while being in the middle of everything. Awesome experience.

Reviewer Comments:

A charming house that characterizes many of the homes of the 1960's Grove. I grew up within blocks of this house and it was like being a boy again! The kitchen is nicely outfitted, a good grill and a generally comfortable home. Jessica was very professional, very friendly, and responded immediately to any questions. I wish we could have stayed longer!
