Description

You have your own entrance through our garden with privacy to come and go as you please in our single family POOL/SPA home. We include towels, linens, shampoo, body wash, conditioner, hand soap, coffee, creamer and sugar. Your room is furnished with a plush pillow top Queen sized bed, private bathroom, a mini kitchen, wifi, Prime/Netflix TV & use of garden areas. The gardens include dining areas, hammocks, lounge areas, pool, Jacuzzi, charcoal grill. We have parking for one car.

This is a private room that is accessed from the side patio by the outdoor dining area. It has a private bath and is completely separated from the rest of the house. It offers a lot of privacy-for example you can arrive home at any hour and no one will hear you. The room is furnished with coffee/cream/sugar and a coffee maker, a mini frig, microwave, and a toaster. The bed is a new pillow top queen sized bed with 100% cotton sheets and 4 pillows. We provide towels, wash cloths, hand soap, shampoo and conditioner. Your room is also equipped with a hair dryer, iron, ironing board and luggage stand. We grow coconuts, plantains, limes and fresh herbs on the property and we are happy to share. If this room in unavailable we have a second room in the same home furnished with a King sized bed. If you check our other listing you will see it. Thanks, Mjo

Please note: We provide towels but because of our schedules and our love for the earth and conserving water we do not change them daily, just when you arrive or stay longer than a week. Thanks for understanding. (there's additional towels in the garden for the pool/Jacuzzi)

Our guests have access to all the garden/outdoor areas of the home which includes: the pool, spa, fire pit, 2 outdoor dining areas, outdoor cooking area, and outdoor games. We provide firewood for the fire pit and cooking area when available. (You can also purchase firewood at home depot or buy charcoal for the grill) We have parking room for one car which you can either park on the driveway or on the front lawn...if you have a second car please let us know and we will make arrangements.

We follow the Guest's lead in this area, some people prefer quiet time to themselves, others participate in BBQ's and Cocolocos....we are happy either way. One note-we also LOVE to travel so there are times when a self check-in or check-out is required. We will make individual arrangements with you if that is needed.

The Neighborhood is a quiet and safe residential area. Our home is located very close to dinning/shopping/banks...and is centrally located between Shark valley, Miami beach, the Everglades and the Keys. We are 16 miles from the Miami Airport. We are 22 Miles from Miami beach

You can easily walk or bike to restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, and banks. (1-2 miles) A car would be useful to get to the tourist attractions. There is bus access on Sunset Drive and it would take you to the train. We have many guests travel by UBER or LYFT and are happy with it. Based on guest feedback I believe you will be most comfortable with a car.

We love to travel and enjoy hearing your recommendations as to where to go next. We have a friendly Pomerania who will love you!!! There are three cats on the property...we have taken them to the vet and they are healthy...they are not really ours but they live in the gardens :) For those Hemmingway fans one is a 6 toed descendant.

Great place for the price. Mary Jo was very friendly and gave me a great suggestion for a cocktail. A little further from south beach and brickell then I'd have liked - especially in traffic.

The room is as described, very cozy. Every space is well utilized to the max. Even with the side of the house right up next to the main road, we were able to sleep well at night. Be ready to drive quite a distance to the main attractions; it would help to use the toll roads Sun Pass but we took the public roads and traffic in Miami is horrible. Overall, the house is in a safe residential neighborhood with a police officer as neighbor a few houses down.

We had a great time in our tiny studio. It was a pity, we didnt met Mary Jo the ten days we stood in there.

Mary Jo's place was a wonderful way to end our trip. Spending the afternoon by the pool was so relaxing and the room was totally comfy. It was a lovely stay!
