Whenever I travel, I like to experience the essence of the destination. This property completely exemplifies the spirit of Miami and the sensational lifestyle of South Florida. The house itself was much larger than we expected and beautifully decorated with a combination of antiques, modern and nautical pieces. The architectural details from the early 1900's are truly lovely, yet the house has every modern amenity imaginable. The shower in the master bath is great, almost the size of my bedroom at home. The pool was refreshing after a full day of shopping and sightseeing, it is also very private for evening swims. We loved to walk down to the bay to catch the moon rise over Miami. There are beautiful peacocks all over the neighborhood and there is no traffic because it is gated with a guarded entrance. The shops and restaurants of Coconut Grove are just a short walk away. This was the best lodging choice we have made in a long time, will definitely be back with friends.
