Our lovely space is a lush urban oasis and permaculture farm. Enjoy goats, pigs, emus, chickens and a colorful community of people. Located in "Little Haiti," near art district, 15 minutes from airport and South Beach. Fresh veggies, eggs and honey!
Walk up narrow staircase to the 3rd level of the treehouse, nestled within the pithocilobium tree. Feel like you're living in the trees! Beautiful view of canopy and animals. There's a double bed for two, and a raised wooden slab can accommodate a 3rd person on a twin mattress. (Note: The second bed is not available from July -October due to wet area from rain). Shared kitchen downstairs. The bathroom is located a few steps away from the Treehouse in our newly built Bahamas-style outhouse and the lovely outdoor shower is also close by. Bathroom and shower have hot water.
Due to height of treehouse, no children are allowed (sorry).
Mosquitos are around during rainy season (June-September) we have a net over the bed, citronella candle, three strong fans and incense to keep them away from you in the Treehouse, but that's not a guarantee.
Miami summer is hot. While our beautiful canopy of trees helps keep the farm a lot cooler than other parts of the city, be mindful that the Treehouse only has a fan for cooling. It does not have an air conditioner. Please consider our "Cozy Cabin" or "Quiet Canoe Outpost" listings if you need air conditioning. Click on my photo, and scroll down.

Our farm is the place to come to have the convenience of city life and the relaxing paradise you need after an active day. You can feed the animals, partake in farm events, play lively games of volleyball every Sunday. Sailing, kayaking, vegan meals, bicycle rental,yoga classes available for modest fees.
We greatly appreciate guests checking in by 8:00 p.m.
Interaction with Guests
There are always people around the farm; some are guests, some are residents; others volunteer time on the farm. You can have as much interaction as you like, or find a hammock in a quiet space and blissfully escape.
Ours is an ecclectic community located in a low-income residential neighborhood of Miami. Many people are surprised to discover the beautiful oasis that is our farm. We are centrally located and easy to find. If you want a quiet, pretty place to unwind after experiencing the glitter of Miami, you will be very pleased.
We offer airport drop-off from the farm for reasonable fees. Public transportation is easy here, one block away there are buses to South Beach, Wynwood, Art District. We are less than 5 minutes to I-95 freeway.

We ask that guests arrive by 8:00 p.m.
Quiet time after 10 p.m. No smoking allowed on farm, but you can smoke on the road outside the farm.
We had such a wonderful stay! The farm was absolutely beautiful and we had a lovely and adventurous time staying in the treehouse. Leslie and Ray were wonderful hosts and did everything they could to make us feel welcome.
We were a little nervous about the surrounding neighborhood, but didn't have a problem.
This place was better than anything we could have expected (not to mention the property was much larger than anything we could have ever imagined)!
Leslie was extremely sweet and so accommodating. Our flight got in much later than anticipated and Leslie was kind enough to stay up and wait for us to arrive and show us around. She was very helpful with recommending restaurants and different things to do around Little Haiti.
We had a blast hanging out with all the animals and especially enjoyed waking up to the sounds of turkeys, roosters and parrots in the morning. This was an amazingly unique and extremely fun experience for us and we can't wait for our next visit!
The Earth 'N Us farm is an oasis in the middle of Little Haiti. The space is truly magical with the lush canopy and hum of the mini forrest. The sustainable model of the farm was a key attraction for us. From reusing the water at the outdoor sink for watering flowers, to multiple options for composting, to the garden steps from the kitchen, every detail of the farm connected with our intention to interact with the earth and even inspired us to pursue more sustainable behavior. The treehouse accommodations were cozy and clean. It is definitely rustic but we are avid campers so we were fine. Use the bug spray and ears plugs provided--the rooster will crow but it's lovely. Leslie and Ray were very welcoming as hosts. Leslie was easy to communicate with before and during our stay. They live on the farm so we would pass them during the day and they would ask us how things were going. Leslie recommended a yoga studio nearby that I went to and loved. Since we were in town to explore Miami, renting a car way key. There is ample parking outside of the farm. Little Haiti is a neighborhood in transition, so be advised that you should take precautions to lock up your valuables and keep items safely hidden. The farm is open to visitors all day, which allows anyone to walk through at anytime, but that is part of the charm of the space. We look forward to stopping by again the next time we're in Miami.
Had a wonderful time meeting Leslie and staying at the Canopy room at the Earth N Us Farm. Would recommend it to anyone. She is very kind and welcoming and made us feel at home. The farm is awesome, and worth every bit of time spent there.
The Treehouse was such a unique and cool structure and I enjoyed all the animals ~ especially the adorable kitty who hung out with me in the Treehouse. It was amazing to see how this place exists in the middle of the city. Leslie and Ray were lovely and friendly and having coffee on their porch was one of my favourite Miami moments. I felt a bit uncomfortable walking around the neighborhood by myself, and only did so during the day. It was great to have the bus to Miami Beach a couple blocks away, though I think I'd prefer to have a car if I stayed again to get around more quickly. It is a lively place with animal sounds and some sounds of traffic. On Friday night there was a bit of a party vibe from neighbors with some loud music playing and it was a treat to have the sound of a heavy rain lulling me to sleep that night. I love waking up to the rooster! It was great to be able to brew a coffee in the morning in the outdoor kitchen and sit outside. The morning was my favorite time at the farm. In the evening I decided to hang out in the treehouse outside the mosquito net around the bed and did come away with some mosquito bites which could have been prevented by hanging out on the bed or using the natural spray kindly supplied in the treehouse. The sheets smelled so good and the bed was comfortable. The fans were also handy as it was pretty warm the first night. I'm very appreciative of experiencing this unique place and really enjoyed meeting Leslie and Ray. I appreciated the service they offered of giving me a ride to my cruise ship dock for a reasonable fee as well.
The farm was amazing. We woke up to bright sun and warm air, and turkey gobbling below our treehouse. The farm had many cats and one adopted us, so we also had a cat sleeping with us. The farm was very close to many markets, and only 15 minutes from south beach. Everyone was very kind and the treehouse/property were clean and well kept. We definitely recommend staying at the farm, it is an experience you will never forget.

I moved to the farm in November, 2012, just before Ray and I celebrated our wedding in a big farm bash. Living here is delightful, waking to the sounds of roosters and turkeys. I give farm tours and nature classes at the farm and am enjoying being an airbnb host. I like joyful times shared with my family and community, including potluck vegan dinners, volleyball, lively conversations.
As a traveler I've always preferred to stay among the local people rather than in a touristy hotel. So here at the farm, I try to give guests a feeling of inclusion and an opportunity to add their own special qualities and talents to our community.
