About this listing

All the comforts, calm, and privacy of your own private cottage - which is a separate and detached house/cottage in the yard behind the property where we live. It is just blocks from a lively village and minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches of Miami Beach, North Beach. You will always remember the experience of your stay in our Florida Cottage.

The space

Here you can enjoy and experience what it is like to live in Miami Beach ... in your own little house/cottage... surrounded by nature... under a gigantic Mango tree... waking up to the beautiful sound of birds... sleeping in perfect silence...step outside where you can sun bathe, have a picnic, spontaneously have a BBQ just outside in the patio... stay in and have a perfect TV night... get some work done inspired by the peace and quiet (and a very powerful internet connection)... go for an amazing bike or run along the beach or golf course (we offer two cruiser bikes - free of charge - for you to exercise, explore beaches, golf courses, and go as far as you wish). Relax, yet have all the options of fun things to do.

The cottage has 1 Bedroom/1 Bathroom, a large living/dining/ TV area with two comfortable couches (and plenty of room for an inflatable mattress). It also boasts an open-air and covered Florida Room and a shaded patio area. In the bedroom has a supremely comfortable King-size bed (just read our reviews!).

Amenities include a full kitchen great for cooking, large flat-screen TV, free cable & internet, a private laundry room (washer/dryer), a great patio with BBQ, and everything you'll need (sheets, towels, cooking utensils, etc). Parking is totally free and right in front of house!

This cottage is located behind our home, just 3 blocks from restaurants, bars and shops and just 1 mile to the sandy beach. It is much calmer here than in South Beach, which can be loud, touristy and congested, North Beach also has it's own charm, appeal and attractions. It's a great opportunity to get the best of both worlds. See the Guidebook. Most people - especially the non-party type - love it here even more than South Beach.

Guest access

All our facilities in the back yard such as bikes, laundry room, amazing BBQ, patio table, hammock. And the free parking in front of the house.

Interaction with guests

We are always around to help but always respect your privacy. The cottage is quite private and very safe - you come in and out as you please. We live in the house in front. We may actually see each other very little (if that is what you wish), we can give you a lot of recommendations and tips to make the most of your stay, and we can even end up becoming friends.

Other things to note

The cottage as a whole is very spacious with a great kitchen (this can save you money and help you really enjoy your stay) and large living/tv room and outdoor space.
- Please understand that the bathroom is inside the bedroom, so if someone sleeping on the sofabed in the living room would have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom.

Pablo and Lu (let's not forget NoBe!) are great hosts, whenever you need anything or have any questions about Miami, they are right there to assist you with great advice. But at the same time you have all the freedom and privacy that you would need. The apartment is well taken care of, clean, has everything that you need and then some. The access to their washer and dryer, cleaning materials, extra kitchen towels, toilet paper, etc. is a great asset that you don't see at many other rentals. The bed and the couch are amongst the most comfortable i have ever slept and sat on, and guarantee you good relaxation for those recovery moments from the Miami Beach life. All this with Free Parking so close to north beach result for a fantastic stay!

I had a great time in Lu and Pablo’s cottage. A very quiet place, located in a nice neighbourhood, easy to access and not too far from the beaches, good restaurants and shops. And you get to use bikes to go around. Pablo and Lu were very friendly and extremely responsive. My stay went well and I will definitely go back.

Do yourself a favor and reserve your stay at the Florida Cottage, a "slice of paradise". Pablo and Lu, thank you so much. I have had an incredible stay at your cottage. Thank you for being such great hosts, so accomodating, welcoming, kind and generous. Thanks for making time to visit. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations. The first evening when I met Pablo he was curious about my vacation plans, and he then made recommendations based on my interests, nearby places to eat, places to go for an afternoon drink, great spots to enjoy the sunrise and the sunset, food and grocery stores. He demonstrated the TV and cable remotes, and how to use the washer and dryer, etc. Prompt response to all communication. They were always available if I had any questions. The cottage is a very comfortable home, with a large "Florida room"/porch with a very pleasant cross breeze. Strong WiFi signal even outside, plenty of hot water. Great lighting, very quiet airconditioner/heaters with remote controls, open kitchen with all you need for cooking. Fantastic yard with hammock and comfortable chaise lounge chairs in a very quiet residential neighborhood. Plenty of hours of sunlight, as the neighboring houses are one story, and plenty of shade provided by the trees. On certain days, it was a real challenge to motivate myself to go out, as it was so comfortable at the cottage. Great peaceful neighborhood. No hustle or bustle here. Wonderful beach with the same ocean and sand as South Beach, haha, but with fewer people, so much more relaxing. Thank you once again, Pablo and Lu, and my new friend, Nobe. I hope to return real soon.

This is the perfect second home, its still a little surreal thinking I dont live here. I stayed for a month and Pablo and Lu were such lovely hosts. I felt completely safe, welcome and taken care of. I was there during the threat of hurricane Matthew, a time when it can be pretty scary travelling alone but Pablo took care of everything from soothing my nerves to putting shutters up and helping me stock up on supplies. Its not in the south beach action, its the kind of place you stay if you want to have a taste of relaxed Miami life with shops and the beach near by. I caught ubers everywhere - and explored Wynwood, Lil Havana, Brickel, Coral Gables, North Miami and even Fort Lauderdale from this base and on lazy local days the free trolley to the beach and bandshell. I would have happily stayed another 3 months if I could

Pablo and his home are just amazing. He made me feel like I was home the whole time. We had everything we needed for a week long stay, and then some! The hammock was really the cherry on top. Laying under the mango tree, contemplating about life was an amazing treat. The bikes were a very niece addition to our "beach life" too! Most of the time it felt as if i had my own place! I have high standards and Pablo met them all! thanks Pablo

Living a nice life in Miami Beach, with my lovely wife. It is all about balance, friends, fun, sun, love, work, play, great food, nice drink, plenty of exercise, and keeping an open mind towards new friendships and adventures.

We like to share our friendship and our enthusiasm for living in Miami and in our specific neighborhood of Miami Beach. If you are attracted to out Cottage, we look forward to your visit.
