About this listing
All the comforts, calm and privacy of your own little cottage awaits, and it is just blocks from a lively village and minutes from the most beautiful beaches of Miami Beach. You will always remember the experience of your stay in our Florida Cottage.
Here you can enjoy and experience what it is like to live in Miami Beach; surrounded by nature... under a gigantic Mango tree... waking up to the beautiful sound of birds... sleeping in perfect silence...step outside where you can sun bathe, have a picnic, spontaneously have a BBQ just outside in the patio... stay in and have a perfect TV night... get some work done inspired by the peace and quiet (and a very powerful internet connection)...go for an amazing bike or run along the beach or golf course (we offer two bikes - free of charge - for you to exercise, explore beaches, golf courses, and go as far as you wish). Relax, yet have all the options of fun things to do.
The cottage has 1 Bedroom/1 Bathroom, a large living/dining/ TV area with a red couch that opens to a sofabed, and an outdoor and covered Florida Room and a shaded patio area. In the bedroom has a supremely comfortable King-size bed (just read our reviews!) and in the living room is a full-size pullout sofa bed. Amenities include a full kitchen great for cooking, large flat-screen TV, free cable & internet, a private laundry room (washer/dryer), a great patio with BBQ, and everything you'll need (sheets, towels, cooking utensils, etc). Parking is totally free and right in front of house!
This cottage is located behind our home, just 3 blocks from restaurants, bars and shops and just 1 mile to the sandy beach. It is much calmer here than in South Beach, which can be loud, touristy and congested, North Beach also has it's own charm, appeal and attractions. It's a great opportunity to get the best of both worlds. See the Guidebook. People love it here even over South Beach.
It is a great option with or without a car. This is a residential setting, not a busy party place like in South Beach. It is easy to get around without a car if you like to walk and take public transportation or ride the new/fancy free Trolley. If you have a car it is also excellent since parking is free and easy and we are central to many great places you'll want to explore and get to know in Miami, Miami Beach, Keys, etc. Parking is completely free and convenient and right in from of the house (as compared to other places where it can be both difficult and expensive to park). You should know that rental cars in Florida are extremely affordable (Enterprise, Avis, Hertz). This way, you will be able to take GREAT advantage of South Beach, shopping, Miami, the Florida Keys and the Everglades, and all the different neighborhoods of Miami. By car: Airport (25 mins), Brickell (20 mins), South Beach nightlife (15 mins), Midtown (15 mins), Aventura Mall (20), Bal Harbour Mall (15 mins), etc.
Cottage, BBQ, patio table, powerful internet, full independent excellent laundry room, and your own free parking spaces - a huge bonus on Miami Beach.
Interaction with Guests
We are always around to help but always respect your privacy. The cottage is quite private and very safe - you come in and out as you please. We may actually see each other very little (if that is what you wish), we can give you a lot of recommendations and tips to make the most of your stay, and we can even end up becoming friends.
It is not a crazy busy congested and "party" part of Miami Beach (like South Beach) it is a cool neighborhood, great to explore amazing places and relax. This area is more calm and nature based, with a SPECTACULAR BEACH, and it offers many advantages if it is what you are looking for. It is more residential neighborhood here, close to the beach but also full of interesting inexpensive restaurants and stores offering a great array of American and international products and services. Our guidebook offers all kinds of suggestions.
There is a free and convenient trolley just one block away that gets you to beach, market and all around North Beach. Also Uber is fantastic in Miami Beach! By car is best (there are great rental deal in Miami and here parking is free) if you really prefer to see other parts of the city or do some shopping in our great malls. By bike (we offer them for free), bus or foot or a mix of all the above. A good idea is to rent a car for a few days (for shopping, sightseeing and experiencing the rent of Miami, Everglades and the Florida Keys) and try bus, trolley, Uber and bike after that.
- Enjoy yourself and everything around life here.
- Smoking is not allowed inside the cottage (patio is fine).
- No pets.
- No parties in the cottage for example with many outside guests (although there is lots of privacy and we can be lot's of fun too).
- Realize the bathroom is inside the bedroom, so if someone sleeps in the sofabed in the living room, their bathroom walking through the bedroom. The cottage as a whole is very spacious with a great kitchen (this can save you money and help you really enjoy the cottage).
- We try to be flexible with your check-in and out. Beside this, very laissez-faire.
- If you borrow the bikes you'll be provided locks and you will probably have a great time without any issues. But if something were to happen to them, you will be charged from the security deposit up to $200 if lost/stolen or the cost of a repair.
From Dec 01, 2015 - Feb 28, 2016 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
