A Beautiful Florida Cottage

House - Entire home/apt · Biarritz Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33141, United States

Come and have an amazing vacation in our spacious, modern, peaceful and private cottage on Miami Beach, entirely for you.

The Space

Here you can enjoy and experience what it is like to live in Miami; 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 your own 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). Parking in right in front of the house (no trouble at all, ever). Relax, yet have all the options of fun things to do.

The cottage has 1 Bedroom/1 Bathroom, a large living/dining/ TV area, and an outdoor and covered Florida Room and a shaded patio area. In the bedroom is an extremely comfortable King-size bed in the living room is a queen-size pullout sofa bed. Amenities include a full kitchen, 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 2 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.

It is a great option if you have a car for at least part of your stay since our location is central to many great places you'll want to explore. 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.

Guest Access

Cottage, BBQ, patio table, internet, full independant laundry room, parking space.

Interaction with Guests

We are always around to help but always respect your privacy, and the cottage is quite private. 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.

The Neighborhood

This neighborhood is great fun, being so 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.

Getting around

By car if you really prefer (this is best to make the most of it), by bike, bus or foot or a mix of all the above. A good idea is to rent a car for a few days so you can perhaps do you shopping (especially international guests) and see touristy the nice places of Miami that are a bit farther away. By the way, renting a car is quite economical.

  • We had a fantastic time at the Cottage. Everything was clean, well maintained , nicely furnished, cosy and the cottage was also well stocked with useful kitchen items etc. We really loved the location since it is so close to the beach and everything. Really glad to have stayed here and Pablo & Lu are great hosts that will make you feel welcome to beautiful Miami!

  • What shall I say ... everything about this wonderful location has already been written by my previous tenants. Indeed, the cottage is wonderful and sweet with enough space for two adults and one child. There was nothing we could complain about, Pablo was a very nice host and supplied us with items we hadn't thought of before. If you want to book this cottage, do so. You will have a wonderful and very relaxed time there. Thanks again, Pablo, we hope to come back asap.

    Response from Pablo:

    Nice meeting you, we are friends on(website hidden) Use sunscreen! :)

  • What a delightful place and a cordial and helpful host. Located in a sweet residential neighborhood, the "cottage" is a great place to start your day -- no matter what you want to do in the Miami area -- especially if you have a car. The living room is comfortable and includes a large TV and a sound system. The kitchen area has all of the essentials Including a large frig, stove, and micro-wave, with enough pots and pans to get a meal for even 6 onto the table. We love the outdoor dining areas and the garden that catches the morning sun. We are already return visitors and will do so again.

  • Thumbs up for everything -- thank you Pablo!

  • The cottage is, indeed, lovely and charming -- even more so than the photos! And Pablo is a most thoughtful and gracious host -- responding quickly and pleasantly to my inquiries and requests. The living room-kitchen "open plan" is bright and comfortable, with a large refrigerator and good electric stove. The bedroom, though small, is comfy with a great bed. The "Florida" room with full-sized dining table set was a surprise and a wall rack for hanging damp bathing suits and hand wash was an imaginative and useful amenity. Lots of hot water with good water pressure. The location was great for me. It is a short drive to the beach (where there is public parking, access, and life guards), about 20 minutes to the amazing new mid-town and MIMO neighborhoods of Miami, and there are numerous routes to South Beach -- to dodge traffic or construction. That there is parking in front of the house is a big "plus," making the coming home part of any outing, stress-free, e.g., no crazy search for parking. I arrived very late at night and the excellent outdoor lighting helped me find my way to the door easily and safely. Airbnb made all aspects of the process easy and clear. I hope I can return!

  • A very nice apartment, equipped with everything that you need. Pablo is very friendly and helpful. He gives lots of tips to discover the area. Very recommendable.

  • Cannot even put to words what a great time we had staying here. This is without a doubt the best setup and care we could have dreamed of receiving during our stay. And the value? Doesn't matter what you're in town for, Pablo is without question the kindest host anyone could ask for, and then some! THE BEST

  • We stayed for a week in the cottage and enjoyed it! Our girls loved the garden and had fresh mangos for breakfast every day! The apartment was spacious and very clean. Pablo responded to all my inquiries immediately and was a great host overall. I would definitely recommend this place to others visiting Miami. I would say a car is essential, since the area has no public transport at all.
