Nice apartment, cold pool

  • 3 of 5

This apartment by itself is charming, clean, quaint but nicely updated, very comfortable and quiet. Great location, safely walkable to Coconut Grove center and all the delicious restaurants. The only reason for the low star rating was that we purposely chose this place for the advertised, 82 degree heated pool, which we expected to use everyday for exercise. The day we arrived, the pool water was icy cold and covered with large tree debris. The heat pump heater was not running. We emailed Leslie and after a few back and forths, were told someone had come by and turned on the heater. It stayed on all night and part of a day, then except for brief periods the next week, it stayed mostly off. The day we left, on Jan. 31, the water temp was 67 degrees, (measured with a pool thermometer.) Needless to say we never used the pool. Leslie didn't have much to say about any of this, no apology, except that there had been a cold snap before we arrived. (It had been mostly in the 70s the two weeks prior to our arrival, we'd been keeping track!) So don't go here in winter expecting an 82 degree heated pool. Otherwise, if a pool is not important, it's a very nice little place.

Owner's Response: Really not accurate -- the pool was at 82 degrees days before their arrival. There was a very cold snap into the 50's just two days before their arrival. The pool heater had been on and was heating the pool as it does, however, as the pool is 22' by 42' with 42,000 gallons of water it takes a bit of time to come back to temperature. Within the guest notifying me that the pool seemed cold, we had the heat pump turned back on within three hours. Someone kept turning it off. We do not know know who. We have never experienced someone turning it off nor had a complaint about pool temperature. We do our best to keep it at 82 degrees short of a cold snap.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in the apartment. It is nicely located in Coconut Grove, a short drive from the main high street and fairly close to Highway 1 as well, which means it's pretty easy to get to Miami Beach. The grounds are serene and relaxing - just what we needed at the end of a busy day exploring Miami.

The apartment itself was clean and tidy, and a perfect size for us and our two young children. The owner was very responsive and helpful in answering our questions. We would definitely consider staying there again when in Miami.

La Solana

  • 4 of 5

We loved La Solana and hope to go back next year. The location was perfect for us and we were glad to be able to walk to the cinema and restaurants and even the supermarket if we were feeling energetic. The owner and her staff were always available to help. The local peacocks were also very welcoming!

Perfect for a Spring Getaway from the Midwest

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the tucked-away feeling of the neighborhood, and the quick access to the rest of Miami. We were comfortable in the apartment and appreciative to have our own pool! We would definitely come again.

Thanks!!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week with another couple and their infant.

The apartment was great, clean and big enough that we were comfortable. The grounds are very well kept and secluded making us feel as though we were the only ones around.

We rented a vehicle but there was really no need to the house is a 5 min walk to the Coco walk where you can get anything you need.

I highly recommend this as a place to stay while visiting the Grove.

We visit family in the area every year and we hope to stay hear again.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to report that many of our guests now make annual pilgrimages to the Guest Apartment. We have added a 37" flat screen 1080 TV hung off the wall with a swivel which makes the Living Room roomier. The orchids are in bloom (spring) and we welcome new and old guests….Thank you!!!
