About This Listing
We can accommodate up to 32 guests. We can not instant book a group because guests will be in different spaces.
We offer a truly unique experience. We are a different type of bed and breakfast. Whether you are in the main house, pool house or RV everyone has breakfast together this is a bed & breakfast, family style. I talk more about that after I explain all the sleep arrangements available. Also keep in mind that most people enjoy cooking either on the Ducane grill or in the main kitchen that has every possible spice you can image. I am going to explain the whole house to you, so you understand this incredible ranch.

First there is the main house. In the main house there are 2 bedrooms that are available, The Everglades Room and The Sunflower Room, both with full beds, and a shared bathroom.
Then there is a pool house right behind the main house separated by the pool, of course. The pool house is a complete home. It has 2 bedrooms, both with queen beds, a full size comfy futon, a small kitchen, a bathroom and an open area, with all sliders open to the pool.
Behind the pool house is Vintage Row. We have 5 Vintage aircraft inspired trailers. The trailers range in date from the year 1955 to the year 1977. Let’s go through them 1 at a time. Keep in mind that these are Vintage meaning that there are lots of original parts some over 50 years old. We have tried very hard to keep this original with original parts.
1. 1969 Airstream International. This Aluminum bodied caravan has an Italian Designer Futon that turns into a full bed, 2 twin beds, a bathroom, a small refrigerator and an outside shower.
2. 1955 Airstream. We call this one the honeymoon suite. This one is very unique, has a custom made King size 12 inch memory foam bed that takes up all the back of the trailer, front toilet, sink on the back of the toilet bowl so no water is wasted, a custom queen-ish bed, a small refrigerator and an outdoor shower.
3. 1970 Avion has a RV kitchen, 2 twin beds and front dining table that turns into a queen bed, and full bathroom, but the shower is tiny and the outdoor showers are super. Even with the kitchen most people prefer to cook in the main house due to space.
4. 1977 Avion has a RV Kitchen, 2 twins with Memory Foam Mattresses and a Futon that turns into a full bed and complete bath. Same as above Small kitchen and small shower. Look at the pictures to understand the layout.
5. 1976 Airstream This is a very fun Airstream. It sleeps 6. There is a queen bed, a full bed and 2 twins. There is an outdoor covered space that has a private bathroom and shower, refrigerator and seating.
We served an incredible breakfast, mostly from our own garden. Farm Fresh Organic Eggs, Papaya, Star fruit, Bananas, Mango, Pineapples, Coconut, Avocado, Tomato’s, Dragon Fruit, Peach, Leeches, Passion Fruit, Jack Fruit and Loquat. That is not complete, but it is seasonal, if it is in season you will be served it by the resident private executive Chef Glen. We are trying to living “off the land”. We raise chicken and rabbits also. You get to explore all the plants.
Evenings are the perfect time to soak in the hot tub, swim in the pool or sit around the outdoor table in the middle of both and enjoy a drink and great conversation. Since we are away from the "city" we can see the stars clearly. We also get notifications from NASA regarding the space stations path and often times it is clearly viewable from our yard. A game of Horseshoes or Croquet is a welcoming challenge. On colder evening a bonfire is a great addition to the peacefulness of our surroundings. We live in paradise and would love to share with you and your family. We would like to welcome you to the good life.

We are located close to the Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park, Schnebly Redland's Winery & Brewery, Coral Castle, Fruit & Spice Park, RF Orchids and we are only 24 miles from Key Largo.
Redland, sometimes pluralized The Redlands, is an agricultural community in metropolitan Miami, Florida, United States, about 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Downtown Miami. Many farms, original clapboard homes of early settlers, u-pick'em fields and coral rock walls dot the landscape. It is named for the red clay that dominates the area, on top of a massive layer of oolite rock. The entire area is nourished with pure water from the Biscayne Aquifer.
Redland originated in anticipation of Henry Flagler's railroad when pioneer homesteaders in the early 1900s developed a way of working the difficult soil, called scarifying or plow-breaking. This revolutionary method of agriculture allowed the land there to develop into the "winter greenery basket of America" and the "garden capital of the world". The center of town was located near Redland Road and Bauer Drive.
This is a family home so the main thing is to just be respectful of everyone in the house and of the things in the house. When you are our guest you become part of our family. Smoking is not allowed inside the house. Smoking outside is ok. Free wi-fi is included.
You will have a key and can come and go at any hour.
Nice bnb with a good location. Hosts are very kind and helpful. Breakfast is really good.
We visited Natalie and Glen at their very nice home. It was our first experience with airbnb and it was our best stay on our roadtrip through Florida until then. We stayed in their huge motorhome between all the other trailers they have. In the evening we could use the hottube and made our own bbq on Glen's grill. The breakfast in the morning was amazing with fresh fruits, pancakes, eggs and a lot more. Finally I would recommend that accommodation to everybody who want to get to know nice people from all over the world.
We, a family of parents and three grown up "kids" in their twenties stayed for two nights with Natalie and her family in Homestead. We felt very welcome and were treated like family members. We watched the Super Bowl and movies on TV and had pizza with Natalie´s family and other guests at night. The breakfasts were home made, very good and varied with lots of fruits, homemade pancakes, bagels +, + . We slept in a caravan with two singel and two double beds. If you are looking for privacy and a comfortable hotel, then maybe this is not your choice. For us it was a great and enriching experience to stay on a farm, meet an interact with the family and with the other guests. It is also a very good spot to stay for excursions to Everglades national park and for further travel to Florida Keys.
The place has a number of non-functional autos, tools by the front door and a dog feeding station. The worker who met us was barefoot and had poor dentistry care and black teeth. There is no air conditioning. The yard had remnants of weedy pots and various trailers including vintage Airstreams and at least one outhouse.
Our room was finger marked about the door and the baseboards needed soap and water. There was a shared bath with a shower where I used rubber shoes as there was no safety rod and it was slippery. The bed was not attached to the headboard and opened a large gap on mild pressure. The bed covering was stained and worn.
The breakfast had lots of fruit, cold pancakes and white toast. Hot country potatoes, yogurt, bagels and Danish. It was self service.
