Sorry, no pets, smoking or loud noises. Please take care of this very special place to me. It took my life savings, long nights and very hard work to transform it into what it is. The wood was planted by my dad back in Costa Rica when we were little and my brothers chose the trees to cut, finished and prepared it until it was shipped to Miami. I am grateful for you to help keep it well maintained & impeccably cleaned for others to enjoy. Thank you!!!!
One of the best Airbnb places I've ever stayed in. This is a beautiful place and the host, Catarina, goes above and beyond to make guests feel happy and comfortable. The location is ideal and close to lots of restaurants and shops in Coconut Grove. Would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!
Catarina is a kind, considerate host who goes the extra mile to make sure her guests are comfortable. Her teak apartment is a work of art and I believe she is building something out back, perhaps a patio? , to make it even better. Beautiful neighborhood!
Catarina ist eine großartige Gastgeberin. Ein gefüllter Kühlschrank, eine Schale frisches Obst, frische Kokosmilch und sogar Kaffeespezialitäten sind nur kleine Beispiele für die vielen tollen Momente, die sie uns beschert hat.
Die Unterkunft ist exakt wir auf den Fotos zu sehen. Der Garten war leider noch in Bearbeitung, daher von uns nicht richtig zu nutzen. Aber Ausstattung, Lage und Gastfreundschaft waren wirklich großartig.
Wir können die Unterkunft sehr empfehlen. Die Catarina vielen Dank für deine liebevolle Gastfreundschaft.
What a terrific time we had at Catarina's! It is truly a beautiful place and neighborhood, absolutely a gem! Catarina welcomed us into her home and was so generous! We even found fresh fruit, water, yogurt, juice, coffee and milk in the fridge! Who does that? I have never stayed at a B&B place where the host went the extra mile with the care Catarina did! The studio is so beautiful and tranquil, furnished beautifully and the full size kitchen, laundry and appointed bathroom are a super plus! When she finishes the deck in her backyard it will be even more gorgeous! Catarina invited us for coffee and even breakfast, checked on our wellbeing and comfort, just like visiting a dear friend. Proximity to the village, downtown Miami and Key Biscayne while keeping beautiful green surroundings and gorgeous peacocks roaming the neighborhood, which balances Miami's quick pace. If I could have bring the place and the gorgeous floors back with us... Well, one can always dream! Catarina, thanks for your hospitality!!! We will recommend her place wholeheartedly!
Catarina was a wonderful host, and SUPER accommodating! Her home is beautiful and looks exactly as described on the site. I would 100% recommend staying there, and would love to do so myself the next time I am in Miami.
We had travel conflicts given the recent weather conditions in DC, and Catarina was very understanding and flexible with us - I couldn't have asked for a more positive experience amidst all of the travel chaos we experienced. She also had several friends in the area checking up on us if we ever needed anything - they were extremely friendly!
Thank you Catarina - your home has great energy and we really appreciate you making our stay in Miami a wonderful one!!

About the Host, Catarina
I was born & raised in Costa Rica and came to the US for my studies. I lived in Germany and England and lived a decade in Los Angeles. All my family is still in Costa Rica, which I consider home in addition to Miami. Travel, movement, adventure, and making the world a better place are my passions.
