I found Fabienne's lovely townhome here on homeaway and thought it couldn't be as perfect in person as it appears in photos. I work for a company in the Chicago area that rents out similar townhomes and I know it's hard to tell from pictures - things can be old and worn out but look just fine in pics. In this case though the pics truly reflect the beautiful condition of this home. After seeing it in person while in town to help my daughter move back home for the summer from her college dorm we reserved it on the spot for our winter in Miami!
We had wintered the previous year in downtown Coconut Grove in the midst of the action (super loud- hard to get any sleep with the 4am bar crowd) and were seeking a quieter location - but still close to everything. The location is perfect. Walk to the metro at Douglas in just a few blocks if you don't have a car. If you do, park it inside on the brick driveway using the remote controlled iron gate.
We had friends and relatives visit while we were there - perfect set up for company. Powder room off a true foyer, you don't enter directly into the living room. Kitchen has granite counters and everything you need to prepare meals. Adjacent laundry room leads from kitchen to attached garage. Large combined living/dining room has a sliding door to a deck shaded by mature mango trees and fenced in yard.
Upstairs, the master bedroom faces the front yard/street but is recessed, positioned above the garage, so it feels private - especially with its own balcony with solid stucco walls and furnished with a little table and two chairs. You can enjoy breakfast here in complete privacy but still be technically outdoors. The en suite bathroom is GORGEOUS with double sinks, a huge walk in shower, plus a jacuzzi jetted tub. The hall bathroom separates the master bedroom from the middle bedroom - no shared wall - so well thought out. Middle bedroom has a trundle bed that converts from a twin to a king plus a desk. Back bedroom has two twins that can be pushed together to make a twin if you prefer. Like the master, it has an attached balcony that overlooks the back yard, but with a railing instead to allow you to enjoy all the greenery in the lush back yard.
All bedrooms have walk in closets. All floors are ceramic tile. This property lacks for nothing. The couple next door is so friendly and helpful! The owner is a gem - the kind of person who will bend over backward to make your stay perfect. You'll want to stay forever!
We two seniors, and our two large dogs, spent the week around 4th of July here, and had a great time at this clean and comfortable townhome. The fenced yard was perfect for quick early or late "outs" for the dogs (as long as you didn't get conked by the sweetly delicious mangos raining down from the huge shade tree!), and several dog parks were just a short drive away. We especially enjoyed the large mixed use park/trail along Biscayne Bay. In fact, it was only a short drive to everything we wanted to do and see in Miami and environs. We really enjoyed the charm of Coconut Grove, and its "Le Bouchon du Grove" French eatery, and took a half hour drive to the unbelievable Coral Castle (google it).
My family (four) spent four great nights in this home and enjoyed each day in the greater Miami area and each evening in Coconut Grove and at home. Yes, we felt at home here. This is a very spacious home, clean, had everything provided. Fabienne even purchased a gas grill to ensure we were completely taken care of. We were within 20-30 minutes of just about everything we visited in the area...South Beach, Cape Fl Beach, Vizcaya, and the shops and restaurants of Coconut Grove. Fabienne called just about daily to ensure everyone was comfortable and offered suggestions on things to do. We plan on making additional trips to South Fl and we hope this home is available, will probably plan our trip around it's availability. Many Thanks Fabienne.
I cannot express enjoy how much my friends and I enjoyed this house. We stayed here over the memorial day weekend, and couldn't believe how nice the home was. The owner supplied us with all the necessities needed such as towels, soap, cooking utensils, and wi-fi for our laptops. The home was easy to locate, not too far from south beach, and we felt safe in the community. Great place to go and relax!!!!!!!
Great location, Coconut Grove is a quiet place with a lot of attractions, sailing club, theater, restaurants, park close to the sea at 3 minutes of the house.
