Come and have an amazing vacation in our spacious, modern, peaceful and private cottage on Miami Beach, entirely for you.
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 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, 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.
It is not a crazy busy and "party" part of the beach like South Beach. This area is more calm and nature based, 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.
By car if you really prefer (this is best to make the most of it), by our free Trolley, by bike (we offer then free), 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.
Enjoy yourself and everything around you.
Smoking is not allowed but there is a outdoor covered florida room, just outside.
We try to be flexible with your check-in and out.
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.
Beside this, very laissez-faire.
Pablo was and is a very welcoming host. He shared good information about the local restaurants and activities in Miami. The cottage is as described, a beautiful little cottage in a nice neighbourhood. I look forward to visiting Miami and staying here again.
Pablo is a great host..there when you need something but so respectful of guests' privacy. The cottage is charming...in a quiet neighborhood of private homes. The "Florida" porch is perfect for morning coffee; the garden for morning sun. Away from the crowds but easy to get anywhere on the Beach or Miami. This is what Airbnb is about!!!!
The place is spacious, very cozy and has all the necessary amenities. There is a free trolley around the block that can get you to the beach. You can also borrow the bikes from the host to get around the island. Lots of restaurants, cafes and stores within walking distance. Pablo is a very nice host, he gave us multiple suggestions on places to go and even offered to pick us up upon our arrival. We had a very pleasant experience in Miami.
I would like to thank Pablo for my stay at his lovely backyard cottage. The place was exactly as described in his airbnb ad.
For me the peace and quiet were much appreciated as I was able to get some creative things done. Pablo was a very welcoming and helpful host. He showed me how everything worked and gave some helpful tips on the neighbourhood and the rest of Miami too. He also was pretty laid back about my presence there and respected my privacy which was also appreciated. I hope to return here some time.
Pablo's cottage is everything that is listed and more.A+ An effortless vacation experience. Private, quiet , close to the more appealing non-scene North Miami beaches and convenient to transport hubs etc.
I was so reluctant to leave . Hope to see you again soon Pablo.
James, you are always welcome. Nice meeting you. You know I saw your invite in the mail after the weekend passed. Thanks and sorry I missed it. It was hectic with work while you were here and with my wife not being here I had weird schedule.... haha. Missed the art. Next time perhaps. Art Basel time here, Best to you.
We enjoyed both the host and the cottage. Convenient location near the north beach. House is very clean and comfortable. Host had bicycles to let and free umbrellas for the beach. Extra clean towels that Pablo allowed us to take to the beach. Highly recommended by me and my husband.
Beautiful and friendly place ! Pablo was of great help, kind and always there when you need. The cottage has everything you might need, it's not a five star hotel but more than enough for us. Thank you Pablo and Luciana !
