About Ines Cortes

I was born in Bogota, Colombia and I have been living in the states, specifically Miami, for the last 30 years. I went to law school in Colombia but early on I decided to abandon law and dedicated myself to different creative projects. I have traveled to India, Africa, Mexico, Guatemala. Nepal and Cambodia among others. I love beautiful things, color, kindness, honor and friendship. I love being a VRBO host. I know a little about Miami and share that knowledge gladly with my guests.

Ines Cortes purchased this house in 2002

Why Ines Cortes chose Miami

When I saw this home for the first time I realized the house had chosen me. We were bound by my love for old architecture, Florida pine floors, crown moldings a floor plan that was not an open plan and, oh my god, the lime green bathroom tiles. I liked the neighborhood and the way the house sat on the lot with 2 cypress trees side by side. She looked like an elegant girl going to her first ball. Through the years the house has changed but the essence is the same. Because I love color, the house is no longer white/white, because I love plants and flowers, butterflies and birds, I planted and planted again and again, shrubs, flowers, bamboo trees. Some grew, some did not but I filled the garden with green.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the tile on the porch and you will to ,( just wait and see) the arches, the mango tree, the long green entrance by the side of the house, the small and delightful back yard and the great front porch.

Property is absolutely breathtaking! Jungle feel!

  • 5 of 5

Ines is a wonderful host! She made my experience in Miami just that more. Great recommendations on where to go, park, and awesome food choices! The house was beautiful! Walking up to her house it looks like a wall of palms and greenery. Once you enter it's a jungle oasis! Mango trees, palm trees, flowers it was so pretty. When you come home at night all types of lights are lit for you and it looks amazing. You think the outside is amazing and the inside is just as great! I love the boho theme throughout the house. All the colors you can think of! So enjoyed the cultural feel. Not one room is the same. The bathroom was nice with its original green tile and very clean. There are all all types of toiletries provided just in case you forget. She even has a beach bag ready to go! Ines is so wonderful and offers so much to your stay.You can tell she enjoys what she does and loves helping out her guest. I didn't want to leave it was that great! I will definitely be returning to her property!

Hidden Gem in the Middle of Everything

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely adored our stay in Miami w/ Ines. She was the perfect host and saw to our every need. Her B&B is a must see for anyone traveling to Miami. It's the perfect location, central to EVERYTHING! The inside is very warm and inviting and the outside garden area is a tropical oasis. You will be sure to sit outside in the evening with a refreshing drink. She is extremely knowledgeable about everything Miami and gave us wonderful restaurant options. We will be sure to stay here again if ever we return to Miami.

Loved the place and the hostess

  • 5 of 5

My boyfreind and I arrived on a Friday afternoon and stayed during the weekend to go to ULTRA Music Festival. Ines welcomed us, she gives us a bucnh of tips for our 1st time in the festival and was really helpful during our stay. The place was really clean, pretty and homie. It is a quite area, so we enjoyed sleeping in the mornings till we head back to the festival. I would definately stay there when I'm back in Miami or the festival!

5 Star and Friendly to Boot.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I arrived late on Saturday January 28th. We were welcomed by Innes the owner of our getaway. We walked in and it was so clean and homey. She showed us the rooms and where we were staying. Woke up the next day feeling refreshed. Comfortable and quiet. The bed was just as great as our sleep number bed. Unfortunately it was rainy and cold on Sunday but Innes gave us some great tips on where to spend the day and helped my husband set up the Lyft program on our phone ( We are not very tech savy but Innes was patient and helped us out. Beauitful gardens throughout the property. Next year when we make the trip again I will be staying here and telling my friends about this great B&B. Once again we thank you Innes and for your kind heart too.

Nice room with beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely room for a week as a young couple. The room is one of two guest rooms in the main house, which share a common bathroom. The owner Ines pays a lot of attention to details, so the house is very clean and she provided us with towels and even a selection of toiletries. She will also be happy to prepare a small breakfast for you upon request (she especially baked delicious waffles for us on Easter Monday!). As a guest, you can use the refrigerator to store some personal supplies, but unfortunately cooking your own meals is not allowed in order not to disturb other guests in the house. This accommodation is perfect for people who want to get to know Miami beyond the tourist face of Miami Beach and don't mind trading the privacy and anonymity you might get in a big hotel for a an interesting chat with locals and other guests. Ines knows a lot and gave us a plenty of helpful hints on what to do and where to eat. There is an additional cottage at the back of the house which provides a little bit more privacy, but was already booked for our dates. All guests have access to the beautiful garden. Enjoying a glass of wine there in the evening under the mango tree definitely was one of our holiday highlights!

Thanks a lot to Ines for making this house such a special and welcoming place!

Owner's Response: I so love it when our guests have a chance to enjoy the garden during sunset or early morning when the weather is perfect and the light is so beautiful. I am glad you found or bed and breakfast enjoyable, pretty and clean! Actually since we clean all day long I am happy you appreciated it. The Miami experience is definitely different when lodging with us. There is more depth just because we make sure we make recommendations on the areas our guests are interested in , while also providing information on all old and new Miami activities. We love Miami, we love this gorgeous home and we also love hosting. This is a happy household and we want all of our guests to feel comfortable, perceive value and totally enjoy their time with us.
