Did you know that the city hall of Miami, a 5 minutes walk from my place, was an international sea-plane airport in the fifties ? Definitively an interesting place to visit... Especially when it is surrounded with some nice restaurants on the bay of Biscayne offering breathtaking views and moonlight and candlelight dinners.
The house is located on a quiet North Grove upscale residential street just a short walk to the bay and to The Grove village cafes, galleries and boutiques, and the marina.
It's a tropical paradise near the center of Miami, 4 blocks away from South Dixie and 10 minutes from the airport.
By car, it's minutes to down town Miami, South Beach, and sandy tropical beaches of Virginia key and key Biscayne, marina & yachting or sailing facilities, airport and a lot more.
North East Coconut Grove is definitively the safest, most up scale and desirable location for a vacation In Miami.
One block away, at the marina, you may rent a jet ski and tour around the Biscayne bay, or rent a motor boat or a sail boat, you can bike around the grove.
Metro rail coconut grove station is a 5 minutes walk, metro bus stop is one block away, lines 48 and 22, these will take you to all over the places.
Car rentals are starting at approx $20/day with unlimited mileage, and there is a parking place available. Bicycle rental is inexpensive.
The North Grove is known for its lush tropical greenery, large trees of all kinds, and lots of shade, peacocks and parrots. It is perfect for a vacation.
It was a bad experience for our family as when we arrived there was someone else staying there. We walked in on them because the doors are a problem to lock so were unlocked. A very unnerving welcome for our family that was added to by the smell of pot throughout.
Even in the short time we were in the space, it was clear it was not truthfully advertised. The owner then accused us of all sorts of things, so we left. It was quite an unbelievable experience as we then needed to find a place for a family of 5 to stay. We ended up in two hotel rooms.
If that was not enough, it took forever to get our security deposit back from them. We have our own VRBO property and have stayed in many and this is a renter beware situation. You should not plan a trip around this property.
As a footnote warning, they took the rental off VRBO after we were there and I just noticed it was back in business....it seems like a way to get rid of bad reviews. Coconut Grove is a great place so find a another property and enjoy yourself with no hassles.
We arrived in the afternoon and immediately found the kitchen calling with roaches. We contacted the manager who came over and sprayed. When we awoke the next morning the roaches were not only in the kitchen but other rooms as well.
We simply packed up and left, not anxious to spend a vacation with bug spraying and roaches.
The owner has since assured me that the problem was solved but if you know roaches...well, I'm just saying.
