About This Listing
There is NO other property like this available in South Beach on Airbnb!
Why stay in a tiny box in a building on South Beach with noisy and nosy neighbors?!
Enjoy a super private 1934 beach cottage with cathedral ceilings and all the comforts!
An AMAZING location - for the same price or less than a condo box.
This 1,200 sq. ft. cottage home is an exceptional opportunity to enjoy your stay in South Beach in total comfort and style - with privacy and peace. There are very few houses in South Beach - and even fewer that offer such perfect proximity to Lincoln Road (5 minutes walk!) to the water's edge (15 minutes if you take time to skip along the way!) 10 minutes to a great gym (if you have the energy after dancing all night!) and all the fun and excitement of South Beach's shopping and many restaurants and nightlife.
Nestled in a quiet little pocket of houses between the Bay of Miami and Alton Road, this property boasts two off street parking spaces, central air conditioning and a comfortable dining room that opens through French doors to a wonderful large outside patio and BBQ area surrounded by tall palm tress and flowering shrubs....you do not see a neighbor, and the neighbors don't see you!
Beautiful hardwood floors, wooden cathedral ceiling and original features throughout provide authentic charm, while TWO washers and dryers...yes, TWO are in the service room directly attached to the kitchen for your use and comfort.
The spacious bedrooms offer top quality mattresses with Tempurpedic toppers to give guests the most peaceful night's sleep. The master bedroom Queen size bed and guest room offers twin beds while the living room has a twin size day bed sofa perfect for the extra guest!
The fully equipped kitchen with gas oven/stove + dishwasher has everything for a chef while the bathroom boasts original charming 1934 tile and fixtures that deliver AMAZING water pressure! After a long day at the beach - turn on these jets and feel the water blasts you!
Offers the fastest wifi speed available both inside the house and throughout the garden. Make some breakfast and answer those nagging work emails swinging in one of the two hammocks from the peace and quiet of the palm tree and flowering shrub lined private yard with outside speakers!
A large gas outdoor grill is available for your use! Throw some steaks and a whole grouper on the grill and mix up some mojitos!!
If it rains.... enjoy the premium channels including STARZ and HBO....

Our stay at MJ's house was great. The house itself was beautiful and MJ's hospitality exceeded my expectations. He was very accommodating with our check in / check out times, very responsive throughout the entire experience, and has a housekeeper you can call should you have any issues during your stay (we did not have any issues and never had to reach out to her). The house came stocked with shower towels, beach towels, and beach bags/coolers which was perfect since we flew in for a long weekend and only brought carry on luggage. If you're looking for a private location that is within walking distance to the beach (15min) stay at MJ's house. Great listing, great host, great house.
This place was amazing!!! From the picture to the minute we walked in, we fell love this place. Michael was very helpful and detailed. The place was very well decorated and clean. We were walking distance to everything in south beach. I would definitely stay here again. My only complaint would be the tub looked dirty.
MJ and I had a little contact by email before we came and he made helpful suggestions about where to go before we got to the bungalow. We met with his housekeeper, Marisol, who showed us the details of the place. It was relly perfect for us, three women on an annual trip to someplace new to play and look at art. The house was very comfortable and the location was perfect. Even though there are big buildings and lots of action near by, the place felt very private and cozy and homey. It was easy to get to all the museums, to wonderful restaurants and also to the beach for swimming once or twice a day. If we get back to Miami sometime I would happily stay there again.
I booked this house for 3 friends and myself. We are four professional guys in our 30s and needed a base in South Beach during Music week. From the get-go, MJ's communication was second to none. Accepting our request quickly and then once booked up he continued to be equally helpful. Nearer to the time of our vacation, he gave us his housekeepers number to assist with our arrival. She too was great.
The house is in a great, safe and clean location with nothing too far away. It's not overly close to the beach, but it is a nice walk away - and certainly not a chore. It looks so pretty from the front, with the flowering plants covering the gate.
Inside the house you will find everything you need. It has a very homely, and lived in feel, which makes it feel cosy and welcoming. It has a nice sized living room, with a comfortable sofa bed in there. At the other end of said living room is a dining room which leads out to the garden which is small, but full of plants and palms, and the all important bbq - which we enjoyed grilling up some chicken on to help soak up our vodka.
The kitchen is a nice size, again with everything you need in, and there is a garage with washer and drier should you need to refresh your clothes mid trip.
There are two bedrooms, one up front with a king sized bed. The other has two singles. Both rooms have tvs.
The bathroom is small but functional with a bath and shower in one.
The house was clean on arrival, but it is not a 5* hotel. It is a person's home and feels like it. And to be honest, I felt so much more comfortable here than I would have at the Fontainblue. I made a great choice, and I would book it again in a heartbeat. In fact... I may well just do that!
Thank you MJ for allowing us to enjoy your home.
Das Haus ist ganz toll und sieht wie auf den Bildern aus. Zu Fuß ist man in max. 20 Min am Strand. Michael ist ein toller Gastgeber obwohl wir ihn persönlich nie kennengelernt haben. Das Haus ist absolut weiterzuempfehlen!
My friends and I had a great time in Miami. The location of the house was perfect. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and it is about a 20-25 minute walk to the beach. The house is great and the garden in the back is amazing. MJ communicated with me in great time via text and provided all the essentials needed while staying in a home (towels, blankets, soap, etc.). Marisol was also very kind and helpful.
