I am a realtor, who was originally born in Argentina, Buenos Aires and I love gardening!
Our stay with Claudia and Coconut Grove Cottage went very well. The area provided was spacious and had all the needed amenities for our stay. It was private and quite. Claudia was easy to reach, always a text message away. The location of Coconut Cottage was an easy drive to any of the sights we visited.
I would love to return. This is warm and inviting and everything I needed. Claudia and her family are super sweet. Enjoy!
Claudia's place was a lovely oasis not far from South Beach (10 minute drive) I love Coconut Grove and prefer it to being downtown in South Beach. It is so lush and relaxing, peacocks in the back yard, and lots of people biking, roller blading and jogging.
Her home is wonderful because of its privacy; it feels like your own apartment with a sitting/lounging area, spacious bathroom and comfortable king size bed with cotton sheets and a down comforter for a chilly night.
She also provided water, soda and left a few snacks which came in handy as the supermarkets were closed on Christmas Day when we arrived.
My only regret was not to have met the host as she was out of town but her daughter was there to give me the keys and help us settle in.
To sum it up. I had a great vacation!
Claudia has such a warm and beautiful space for visitors. The peacocks grazing the backyard were a lovely tray and there was plenty of space to get comfortable. It's a short walk from the park and super close to the shops in the Grove. Would love to stay with her again!
We will return to this location. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and a very pleasant stay. Would have given 4 stars but the bath towels were not up to par. Bed was comfortable, location was great for us and the space was excellent. I would recommend this place.
Response from Claudia:
Thanks Pam for your review and I always consider my guests suggestions.
Again it was a pleasure having you as a guest.
Eine absolut mega wahnsinns Gegend, ein Traum! Man sieht, dass dort betuchte Leute wohnen ;) Claudia ihre Wohnung ist ebenfalls perfekt, Parkplatz vor der Türe, super schönes Bad, sauberes Schlafzimmer, viel Platz usw usw... einfach perfekt!
Würde es sofort wieder buchen! Claudia war sehr freundlich und flexibel bez. Ankuftszeit, Abgabe und allem. Zudem gibts dort eine Kaffemaschine, nen RIIIIIESEN Fernseher, Mikrowelle usw.
Tausend Dank, es war super!
Quelques petits regrets malgré la gentillesse de Claudia: le cri des paons nous ont réveillé chaque nuit et la voiture est quasi obligatoire pour bouger dans le centre, pas de bus le we...sinon le logement est tres agréable et le lit très confortable, un frigo et un micro onde: un peu juste pour tenir une semaine.
I enjoyed staying at the Coconut Grove Cottage for a weekend during spring break. The cottage was spacious and clean. Claudia and I never met in person but she made the pickup and drop off of the cottage keys easy. The neighborhood was safe with restaurants and shopping within a short distance. I felt welcomed by the comfortable environment and snacks in the fridge. Overall a positive experience!
You basically get your own apartment, which is great for privacy and flexibility, but it lacks in facilities when staying for a longer period of time. Although mentioned in the details, we found the lack of internet access uncommon.
Claudia was very busy, business orientated. So don't expect a host that will give you a lot of company and suggestions. Communication in English wasn't always as clear as it could be (Spanish would be a preferred option).
The apartment itself could be cleaner, especially since I am not too fond of cockroaches. The place was ok, but compare to other offers, there are cheaper better places out (website hidden). Remember to bring your earplugs, the peacocks might get very noisy at night!
Gran casa, gran propietario y sobretodo gran television. La convivencia con claudia ha sido fenomenal, dando todo por el inquilino y aun teniendo a su hija embarazada.
Lo mas peculiar de la casa son los Pavos Reales, que sin duda hacen del ambiente mas gracioso y acogedor, ademas de hacer de despertador matinal.
Si algo podria faltar es avisar en la ficha que es necesario taxi para todo y poner internet en casa.
Por lo demas un 10 de viaje
