Miami, Florida, United States · Member since January 2014

We have lived in the Coconut Grove area and Bay Harbor Islands for nearly two decades, hosting family, friends and business clients for over ten years. Our cottage has evolved into a really warm and cozy place to stay yet functional and with all modern amenities.

We have stayed in countless accommodations around the globe and understand what makes a traveler happy, comfortable and relaxed. We have applied this experience to our cottage and as you will read in our reviews, our guests have greatly appreciated it.

We love what we do in the hospitality industry, meeting new people, making them feel at home, thinking of the little details that make our guests' stay memorable.

We love travel, great food, music, theater, ballet, films and cultural events!

We have learned so many interesting things and stories from our guests since we started this great experience in January 2014!

It is very rewarding listening how our guests enjoyed their stay and how sometimes our recommendations really enhanced their South Florida adventure.

We can always offer recommendations on dining, shopping, attractions, transportation, what's nearby. Visit South Florida like a local on a reasonable budget!

Feel free to ask any questions. We are always on call to hear from you.
