Room for 2 in private home

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · S Lake Dr, Miami, FL 33155, United States

Room for two with bath in private home with pool and canal, in the city of Miami (NOT on South Beach). Possibility of another room with double bed for members of the same family (share the bath). Two consecutive nights, minimum. Breakfast optional.

The Space

Please READ the description as I don't want people to be disappointed before they come here! I have described the accommodations accurately in the description and photos so that you may align your expectations accordingly as to price, value, location etc. Please ask if you have questions that I did not address.

This is a small guest room with a double bed (NOT queen or king, so not comfortable for tall people), simply decorated, with private, separate, small bathroom,and fridge, coffee maker and microwave in the room. Wifi,but no TV. The area is very quiet and tranquil. You barely hear any traffic. There are two parks nearby for walking or biking.

Our house is old (1950's),but the mattress is new and comfortable (on the /medium/hard side), and for the price you get to enjoy the garden (on a canal), an maybe use the pool depending on the season (pool is not heated), and you can fish if you bring your gear. The view on the lake/canal is wonderful and very restful. You can fish or borrow our canoe (for a fee) to explore the canals departing from our backyard! There are several smaller shopping areas close to our home (pharmacy, general store, grocery, restaurants, electronics), which is central (by car) to several areas (South Miami, Downtown, Everglades etc.)

Breakfast is not included, but can be had for a fee,(ask upon reservation) and served between 8.30 AM and 10.30 AM, please advise if you have allergies. I can also provide snack food/sandwiches for a supplement.

You will NEED a car to navigate Miami and also to get to our home, so I advise renting at the airport--public transportation is hard to get here. Parking is free at our house. The nearest bus is 15 minutes walk away and goes to the metrorail. I CAN'T pick up guests at the airport or drive them around but will gladly indicate things to do or see. We are only 5-10 minutes to Coral Gables, Dadeland and South Miami, which have plenty of shopping, and about 15-20 minutes from Brickell, Crandon Park Beach and downtown. We are 20 minutes from south beach, 40 minutes from the Everglades. There are two parks nearby, and one has a heated pool, jogging paths and nature center. There are also two strip malls nearby with groceries and electronics store.

You can use our Wifi network on your own device, and there is plenty of parking in the front (not covered). Use of our washer/dryer is $3 per load. Smoking is allowed outside.

If you are looking for a quiet room, central to many attractions (with a car) but far from the hustle and bustle of South Beach, stay with us!

Guest Access

Private bathroom, garden with chairs, table, and pool, canal. No access to kitchen for extensive cooking but I can lend some utensils if you want to make yourself a sandwich. Possibility of having some, but not all, meals with us, for a participation fee. Ask.

Interaction with Guests

Depends on the guest but at times I have less time for interaction since I work from home. I can give info on what to visit help with directions, etc. I love having guest from all over the world and discover their culture so if you have time to speak to me about your customs, it would be great!

The Neighborhood

It's very quiet, easy to walk in this residential neighborhood, surrounded by canals, and close to everything by CAR (Everglades, the beach, downtown Coral Gables)

Getting around

The nearest bus stop is 15 minutes walk away. It takes you to the metro in about 20 minutes but I would strongly advise renting a car.

Other Things to Note

We have a cat. Please describe yourself when booking, I like to know a little about my future guests before they arrive.

  • Nous avons passé 3 nuits chez Sandrine et son mari. Tout était parfait, la maison est dans un quartier résidentiel calme à proximité des centres d'intérêts. Le jardin est époustouflant avec vue sur un canal où vous pourrez admirer la faune locale. La chambre est très bien équipée d'un frigo, d'un micro onde et d'une ventilation.
    Le petit déj est extra ordinaire. Une adresse incontournable pour votre séjour à miami !!
    Merci Sandrine pour tes conseils précieux.

  • Our stay with Sandrine was awesome and she is a great host. She had the best caramel cake for breakfast! The house borders a canal, so the back deck is a nice place to relax. The place was great for us because it is only a 10-15 min drive to downtown and Miami Beach, where we spent most of our time.

We are a family of 2, plus a cat. We are French and have been living in Miami for 8 years now. Our only daughter left for college recently, and we have decided to rent the room so that it does not stay empty most of the time! The extra money we make with airbnb helps us pay for her art supplies, too. So by staying with us you're being kind of a mentor to a design student :-) We strive to offer you a good experience in our house but don't always have the time to have long discussions with our guests, as we all are very busy with our lives and taking care of the house. However I will gladly indicate the sights to see, how to get from our house to another place, what restaurants we like etc. If I have more time I would love to discuss your country of origin and your customs. So far we have received guests from France, Italy, Russia, Romania, and the United States. We are very quiet people and enjoy reading, biking, photography, canoeing, cooking and visiting friends. We also like to travel, we have been to Spain, Germany, France, Mauritius and Reunion island, Sri Lanka, Guatemala, Kenya, Canada, and many others. We don't like loud noises or music and go to bed quite early since my husband wakes up early to go to work. So our ideal guests are people who like quiet too, not "night owl" or club loving types (not that there's nothing wrong with this!). If you enjoy a good book, short and meaningful conversations, quiet time looking at the lake, then you will like us, I think.
