Four bedroom apartment above Lagniappe, Miami's local undisclosed jazz scene and wine garden.
Rm 1 is the sunniest and warmest room in the house. If you like your room dark: pick another room!
Lagniappe House is a French vintage inspired shared living guest house above Lagniappe, a New Orleans style backyard wine garden and jazz bar.
Upstairs, we invite you to be our guest at Lagniappe House. Guests can choose to stay from a night to serval months. Choose from our three double occupancy rooms or one garden room suite. All amenities are included with free wifi, large fully equipped kitchen, front reading room with desk and internet access, and full shared bath. Each of the four rooms is rented out separately with comfortable vintage furnishings and fresh linens and towels, with keys to the house and your individual room.
Below we welcome you to Lagniappe, our laid back backyard style wine garden and jazz bar. were you can grab a bottle of reasonably priced boutique wine or craft beer, some cheese and charcuterie from the cooler for us to plate or something from the outdoor grill, and chill with us for some great live jazz, funk and blues,
We are situated in the corner of Midtown which has become a central hub to some cool Miami cultural and culinary spots. We are in the north corner of the Wynwood Arts District, an entire warehouse district's walls converted into urban mural art and interiors into galleries and hipster dives. (Come the second Saturday night of the month for art walk to see it in full fledge)
Come December, Art Basel's main satellite tents, Scope, Red Dot, Art Asia, and Art Miami set up there tents directly across the street. A few blocks north is the Miami Design District, with top interior and fashion deign showrooms and acclaimed culinary dining. Downtown Miami is a few miles south and the beaches are just across the causeway.
We invite you to stay with us:)
Come downstairs and join us at Lagniappe in the evenings for live music, boutique wine and craft beer, pick your own cheese and charcuterie plates and dinner and the grill. Enjoy yourself inside with live jazz, blues, french gypsy and bluegrass bands, or outside in our garden. It's the feeling of a backyard house party right in the middle of the city.
Care to venture outside our garden walls? Miami's cultural heart is right outside our door. We are nestled between the Miami Design District, with some of the city's best dinning and shopping, and the Wynwood arts district, with blocks and blocks of beautiful graffiti murals, galleries, coffee houses and gastro pubs. To hit the beach it's a straight shot just over the causeway with direct bus lines running every half hour.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will have there own set of keys available by lockbox outside the door, giving you independence to check in at any time.
Just North of us is considered the Design District which is full of high-end commercial and art galleries and conveniant mid-town shopping.
The Southwest is a lower income area surrounding Wynwood, the popular mural walls and avant guarde art district. Their are so many new concept restaurants all off of NW 2nd Ave. I recommend our friend's amazing Italian/Israli Bakery, who goes by Zac the Baker.
If you look up neighborhoods on AIRBNB, you'll find pictures of these areas... they may even have photos for Buena Vista, the friendly old neighborhood in the North. A walk to their French Bakery: Bueno Vista Deli is about 10 blocks north on the same street you'll be on, NE 2nd Ave, and the mushroom/goat cheese quiche is to die for!
Shuttles run from both FLL and MIA Airports to personal locations. Uber car rentals have become more popular and easier to locate than taxis.
Bus 202 travels to and from the Miami Airport.
Bus J and 150 go to the beach.
Buses 9 & 10 pick up in front of our street and Buses 3, 16, & 95 run along Biscayne, one street over. All of these routes can be found by searching MetroMover in Miami.
What I recommend the most is getting around by bike.
All of our neighborhoods are easiest to explore on bike. The Venetian Causeway on 15th Street will take you to the beach, crossing a beautiful pedestrian-friendly bridge over the Bay of Biscayne. Parking is a cinch. You can travel at your leisure and enjoy the fresh air.

The place is pretty nicely furnished, clean and convenient! We did not meet Ali & Rebecca but booking + communication went well + easy! The wine bar below is the best I have seen in Miami! You definitely should go! Upstairs you hear the nice music, (so if you are looking for something quit its not your place), however we loved it!
Here's an email I wrote to them when I was staying - this should give a snapshot of the moment.
I was calling because I was not able to open the little latched box where you keep the keys. It took me a while to get the knack of it.
Everything else is fine. We love the house. We, including our son, loved the jazz music. He danced to it. We also loved the eatery and the food they served and the people who run it.
The fellow guests are also quite amazing, helpful and they gave us great advice on what to see in Miami.
My wife was really happy to see a great collection of books esp. Arundhati Roy's "God of Small Things", and "spirit guides". She says that she would love to leave a little gift for you.
Cheers and Hugs
...and here's the note we wrote to them after leaving their house
We are checked out. Thought should write you a note before leaving Miami.
Your tip on diaper mgmt was great. Helped us a lot. First time parents on first time vacation staying in their first airbnb....
....and what an amazing stay!
We loved every moment of it here. Hope to stay again when we are in Miami.
We have left a little gift to appreciate the great jazz-food-stay oasis you have built. It is on the night stand by the bed in room no 1. Hope you will like it !
Very nice cozy place...listing was just like in the pictures...very clean and (email hidden)e other guests in house were very friendly n quiet...the wine bar and music downstairs was awesome..great wine cheese n food....i would definitly stay again...close to the highways and to get around with my car
We stayed one night in Room 1 and it was a basic, comfortable room to call home while visiting Miami. The reviews and description are accurate - easy to check-in, within walking distance to Wynwood bars/sights. We had wine and checked out the live music downstairs, which was great. However, someone who is looking for a peaceful night of sleep might not enjoy staying here. From what I could tell, there is one bathroom shared by the four rooms, but this wasn't an issue (we left early the next morning).
My stay at Lagniappe was very comfortable. The decor inside made me feel right at home. Everything was clean- especially the bathroom. Even though I didn't get to meet Becca she was very helpful when I messaged her through the app. The location was central to many places I wanted to visit during my stay. Most just a 5 minute drive. There were also several places to eat within walking distance. I would definitely book here again whenever back in Miami.
I did not get to meet the host during my short stay here, but the place was wonderful! Very homey and in a great location. Easy check-in process. Everything very simple and laid back.. just what we were looking for!
Overall, it was a positive experience staying in one of the double occupancy rooms at the Lagniappe House! Becca was quick to respond by email prior to the trip and phone/email once we arrived. We only stayed one night, so we didn't get to meet Ali or Becca in person. We stayed in Room #1 (the featured picture for the post), which was itself a good value, with basic furnishings (though the picture is staged differently, and actually had fewer funishings) access to a full kitchen and towels for the bathroom. The jazz/wine bar downstairs, Lagniappe, and the Wynwood neighborhood were highlights of our short Miami stay - definitely worth hanging out there. There is room for 4 parking spots in front of the bar; the bar gets very busy so it might be an issue to snag one of those. Becca provided info on alternate parking nearby. The main drawbacks are that this corner room in particular has two large windows that face out onto a busy street, coupled with the sounds of the bar downstairs, it may not be a good fit for light sleepers. If I were to stay here again, I would prefer one of the inner rooms for that reason. Thanks for offering an affordable room in this fun neighborhood!

BECCA, the designer/founder/owner:
David (founder of Lagniappe) and I, both parents, meet through a homeschool co-op group we founded for our children, on an urban organic farm where my daughter and I now live. We have spent the last two years, along with establishing and educating in our little earth schooling tribe, lovingly and passionately co-creating David's Lagniappe wine bar and live music garden and my Lagniappe House hostel. It has been such a pleasure having you all as our guests over the last year since we've been open and we thank you for your help in making it such a success.
ALI, the manager/coresponder:
Alison, a friend from the farm and a teacher at the school co-op is the newest addition to the Lagniappe house. She can be seen anywhere between 12-3 each day as she prepares the rooms. Feel free to ask her questions or leave generous tips. She’s fascinated with holistic health, re-purposing waste, alternative resources, exploratory education, communication, the arts, and dAnCE!
