About Robin

We are native Floridians and have lived in South Florida all our life, we love to travel and meet new people. We are very quiet and considerate of our tenants and would love to help you discover and explore places while visiting our area. Sandy speaks Spanish but unfortunately we do not speak other languages.

Why Robin chose Miami-Dade County

Our property is a nature lovers dream, we are in the plant business and our landscaping is very private and beautiful. We have lots of natural animals that love to visit such as raccoons, peacocks, iguana's, opossum and butterflies to name a few.

We have toys, a crib, toddler rails, high chair and stroller if you need to borrow. That way it is less items you need to pack.

What makes this cottage unique

Our pool with grotto is absolutely beautiful and very private to the neighbors. Lovely to swim and relax in. We are in a quiet neighborhood but very close to shopping, restaurants, beautiful botanical garden and a small local beach.

5 Star

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, including a 12 and 10 year old, stayed for a week during early January 2017. The home is situated in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. We were welcomed by the resident peacocks as we unpacked, which was fun. The guest house was spotless and well stocked with everything needed to enjoy our time there. The homeowners were very helpful with directions to local restaurants and attractions, as well as being very accommodating of our collection of bikes. The location of the house was perfect for a day trips to South Beach, the Keys, or the Everglades. There is also a great walk/bike path steps from the front door.

Private Clean Tasteful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This guest home is located in a very exclusive area of Miami, filled with quiet streets, luxurious homes and amazing landscapes. The guest home itself is very spacious with high end construction features, high ceilings, wood and stone tile floors. The home was well stocked with linens, kitchen items and useful daily needs, such as an iron, hair dryer, blow up bed and even toys! We were a family of five and were very comfortable. The grounds are amazing and quiet. We loved the pool area with it's natural setting. Owners Robin and Sandy were super kind to us and made us feel welcome and at ease immediately. We will no doubt stay here again and will be recommending it to our family and friends who need accommodations in Miami.

Outstanding guest cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Robin's guest cottage. The cottage is extremely well designed and appointed and is even better in person than the photos on the site indicate. The bedrooms are large and the bathroom and kitchen were well supplied and high end. The pool area is beautiful as are the grounds in general. We are very familiar with the area, and this is an outstanding location in terms of safety, quiet and access to whatever one cares to do in Miami, while being in a truly serene environment. Once there, the cottage feels like it has all one needs for a short or long term stay in total comfort.

Robin and her husband were great hosts, answering any questions and, when we asked to extend our stay at the last minute, made that happen.

I highly recommend this place as a base for visiting Miami and it would be an outstanding location for guests to stay if you live in the area and your visitors would otherwise stay in a hotel or crammed in with you!

I noticed some of the other reviews indicated Robin followed up with items left and ensured they got back to the owner. That happened to us as well and it was great getting her email saying a missing item was found and soon back to us.

Overall, easily merits the five star rating.

Just amazing and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property! This tastefully decorated cottage guest house has everything you'll need for a great stay. The best rental experiences we've ever had. The rental is in a very nice quiet neighborhood about 10 minutes away from Coral Gables and convenient to all areas. The property features a tropical pool and deck in a private lush setting. The cottage is beautifully updated with kitchen area, 2 nice sized bedrooms and 1 large bathroom, there is even a huge walk in closet if you need it for an extra bedroom area. Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids, ages 7, 9, and 11) were very comfortable staying there for 7 days. We loved the pool and serenity of the backyard. The homeowners were so very nice, answered any inquiries immediately, stocked the cottage and pool area with items you may need or forgot, making you feel very welcomed. Robin even went out of her way to mail 2 items we left behind to us, I can't imagine many other homeowners who would go to that length. You can instantly tell the homeowners care about your visit. I could go on and on about how great this rental is, you will not be disappointed, no need to hesitate...book NOW! =)

Piece of paradise to remember

  • 5 of 5

Pretty property and lovely pool that was even better than the photos showed. Property was clean and well maintained with lots of space inside and out. Robin and Sandy looked after us without intruding and so the place felt like our own little piece of paradise.

Pinecrest is close enough to Miami and other Miami Dade attractions so there's lots to do. Pinecrest And Fairchild Gargens are nearby and both worth a visit. Robin's tips were very helpful.

We especially enjoyed Winwood art district, worth the drive.

Very nice, Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as advertised and the owner's were out of sight for the most part - when they were around, they were a pleasure. Pool was great, guest house was nicely appointed, in great condition and clean. Neighborhood was safe and quiet while being close enough to Miami, South Beach and the beautiful beaches at Bill Brags State Park. We brought our 2 y/o daughter and she loved the pool, the toys that were left out for her and the wild peacocks roaming the property! I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a mellow and relaxing experience. Keep in mind, this is someone's house, its not a resort and that suits me and my family just fine! Thank you to the owners! You provided a much needed respite for my family and I!
