About Françoise or Nick

I grew up in France where my first profession (ballerina) took me to different part of my country and Europe. Later I came to California where my children were born. During the 90's Nick and I lived both in Paris and Miami while he pursued his fashion photography career. When I first came to Miami I chose Coconut Grove as then it was the center of cultural activities and home of many artists.

Françoise or Nick purchased this house in 1984

Why Françoise or Nick chose Coconut Grove

This has been our home in this unique neighborhood for a long time. The children are gone and we would like to share it with guests on occasion allowing us to travel too.

What makes this house unique

Lots of character, authenticity yet close to everything in Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house has been a wonderful experience for us. It has such a fantastic feeling and a real personality. It's so gorgeous!! We thank you for allowing us to rent it for our stay in Miami. If we visit this way again we will be back here if it's available.

We would also extend a warm offer if you ever do venture to the west of Australia to come for a surf and stay with us.

Love from the Aussie Yachties

We really enjoyed our stay at Nick and Francoise's beautiful home. Although I never got to meet Francoise she was still in contact via email and Nick was a charming and helpful host who went above and beyond.... Even taking me to the grocery store when we arrived.

They had everything set up to help our 2 year old settle in nicely and some great tips about where to eat and a lovely park we could walk to. Their home is well appointed and in a peaceful and beautiful area. We could walk into the relative hustle and bustle of Coconut Grove if we chose, or equally it wasn't far to drive to everything we wanted to visit while in Miami.

I would definitely recommend staying here and would happily stay if we visit Miami again.

Grove Perfection

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect residence and welcoming hosts. We had two couples and a single staying and we instantly felt at home and comfortable in a stylish, modern house that was amazingly, built in 1932. It was close to all amenities but in a quiet, tropical, neighbourly area.
Thanks for a great stay...

Owner's Response: You came from so far and we were sorry we could not have you for your entire stay in the Grove as previous bookings conflicted with your arrival, but we enjoyed finally having you in our home. Our old house circa 1923 likes to be appreciated! We look forward to meeting you again here or in Australia.

Great house. Very unique!

  • 4 of 5
The house is lovely, quiet, clean and charming. The location is great. I'd had given it 5 stars if it had a microwave, a decent sized TV and payments could be made via Paypal or credit card.

Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful house. The owners are a warm and delightful couple who made us feel so welcome.

Not only is the house beautifully stylish and clean but the location is fantastic. We hate noise, particularly at night and it is very quiet here yet so close to all the main attractions of the area. We only stayed 6 nights but need to come back as there is so much to see in and around Miami.
The front garden is delightful and so private - we spent a lot of time on the front porch when we came home from our sightseeing.

Locally we recommend the bagel shop for breakfast. It takes 2 minutes to walk to from the house - Nick showed us a short cut. (It doesn't look much from the outside but it is very good and cheap! Always full of locals which is a good sign)
The restaurant, Berries is also only 3 minutes walk from the house and had a very good menu.
Lots of beautiful shops and restaurants in Coconut Grove.

We highly recommend this property and would certainly stay here again if we come back to Miami.

A Tropical Haven

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we have used Home Away and we feel that we couldn't have chosen better

The house is a real tropical haven just a short distance away from all the hustle and bustle. Clean, comfortable and short of nothing - the website pictures really do show you what it is like

Nick and Francoise were extremely helpful throughout whenever we needed them but always without intruding on our privacy

Coconut Grove was an ideal location for Miami and South Florida. The highlights for us were the Everglades and Fairchild Tropical Gardens

If we go back we will certainly try to stay there again

The house and the owners are great, we couldn' t have chosen better. Quiet location five minutes from dowtown south beach, close to everything. Beautiful house very well taken care and very well conditioned. The owners always helpful and accesible. We felt like home, away and very far from home. We truly recommend it!

Notes:
Our home vintage 1923 features pickled original wood floors throughout , casement windows all around inviting the lushness in. It is located on a very quiet street (cul-de-sac) friendly to pedestrians. Enjoy relaxing and watching the sunset on the open front porch in total privacy, have breakfast in the screened porch surrounded by vegetation. The master bedroom bathes in shades of whites while the downstairs one plays a more exotic tune with african kuba cloth accent or read books in the third bedroom more traditionally appointed. TV sets are in both front and back part of the house, one can stream movies with a subscription to Netflix. The village is minutes away with its many shops, restaurants, theaters as well as well maintained public tennis courts. It is a 5 minutes walk to Biscayne Bay, Kennedy park and the Fresh Market. A massage therapist for your pampering lives nearby.
