About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

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.

Reviewer Comments:

Jenkins house is in a quite cute neighborhood but close to Miami. It's an older home but has a lot of character. FYI parking is limited for SUVs but it's perfect for car. We wish the hot tub was set up, after a long day off traveling that would have been nice. The appliance's were new and enjoyed sitting in the gardens.

Reviewer Comments:

This mid-century darling-of-a-home is nestled behind a gate amid a lush garden of palm trees and towering bamboo and is surrounded by an expansive deck in front and off the bedrooms at the back of the property. This home is exactly as described in terms of location, layout and amenities. If you grew up in the mid 50s and early 60's, the furnishings will remind you of the Jetsons TV show or as some have commented, like the set of "Mad Men" Although built in 1953, it has a modern, upgraded kitchen stocked with all the cooking utensils, cookware and dishes you'll need, a well functioning air conditioning, a large TV, a washer and dryer and VERY comfortable beds guaranteeing a good night's sleep. It is well maintained and clean with lots of closet and drawer space. The Jenkins House is conveniently located, close to many restaurants, parks, gorgeous homes and streets lined with huge, lush mangrove trees. And it's only 5 miles or so from the airport if you take the main surface street. The management company was readily available both by email and phone to answer any questions. The bottle of wine and the ground coffee awaiting us upon our arrival was a wonderful touch. Checking in and out was a breeze. I highly recommend this property and we look forward to staying here again the next time we visit our daughter in South Miami.

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!
