This two story modern architectural masterpiece sits in the heart of Coconut Grove, walking distance to shopping, restaurants and Biscayne Bay. A gated drive welcomes you to the coral rock home situated under a grove of palms and stately mango trees. The tropical canopy shelters you from the world and creates a private oasis.
The main floor offers 5000 square feet with beautifully decorated living room with fireplace, television/sitting room, dining room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The second floor open air pavilion overlooks the pool and tropical gardens and offers a majestic outdoor dining room, fully equipped kitchen with grill, sitting area and additional air conditioned bedroom and sitting room. The home is equipped with a built in sound system inside and out, WiFi, and HD cable television. The cabana set in the beautifully landscaped gardens offers another bedroom, sitting area and bathroom.
The unique series of pools and hot tub are situated in the coral rock foundation of the original home and surrounded by extremely private gardens, a patio with lounge and seating areas. A children's play structure is found in the secret grotto. Gather around the enormous cast iron firepit for an evening bonfire.
Built in 2004 by renowned architect Max Strang, this gorgeous home has been featured in many architectural books, fashion shoots, television programs, commercials, and the movie Miami Vice

Our first problem came with just wiring the funds for the property! Nightmare!! Picture perfect, but pictures can lie! Our biggest complaint was we couldn't enjoy the outdoor facilities because the mosquito's were eating us alive!!! They provided candles & foggers but they never detered the pests!! The bedroom configuration was also strange! 2 outside the property/not connected to the main resedence. We did have a good time but it is NOT a place we would rent again. Friendly staff!
A simply magical setting for a family vacation! We spent a week at Bali Hai with 4 kids (5-19 yrs) and grandparents and everyone was completely enamored with the property. The house itself is stunning and very luxuriously appointed. It also provides plenty of room for a large family to spread out. We loved that there were so many quiet spaces to relax whenever anyone desired a break from family time. That said, we spent most of our time congregating in the beautiful pool area. The pool is surrounded by tropical gardens with numerous palms and a stately banyan to provide shade for those who want to lounge out of the sun. The upstairs floor (almost entirely open-air) was another highlight – we ate most meals up there, had movie nights in the comfortable lounge and just relished the peaceful, tree-top seclusion of the space. Which brings me to another important feature: privacy. You are close to all the wonderful amenities of Coconut Grove and Miami but in a completely secluded, relaxing space . . . an exceptional melding of resort and urban experiences. Many thanks to both Stephanie and Margaret for setting the stage for such a special getaway; we will definitely return!
The luxury compound that awaited us was nothing less than spectacular! A dream house that exceeded our expectations and muted our wildest imaginations. Stephanie and her management team were attentive to every detail, furnishing the house with every amenity you and your guests can possibly hope for. The house was situated in a great neighborhood with easy access to botanical gardens, parks and a short walk path which leads you to the heart of Coconut Grove. A walk path seldom used during our stay, as it was impossible to part ourselves from pool side and a courtyard that had you feeling your were at an eco resort in Belize.
A return trip is already in the works and we might even make this an annual get away destination.
Stephanie, thank you for sharing your home with us.
We stayed a week with 2 other families at the property. The house was absolutely gorgeous with plenty of room for all of us. Everything was clean and in good working order. We particularly enjoyed the upstairs outdoor area with bar, BBQ and lounging area. The kids loved sleeping out in the bunkie house. Although it is located on a busy road, you cannot hear any traffic within the home. Located about a 20 minute walk along lovely pathways from the heart of Coconut Grove. The property is fully fenced and very private - we didn't have to worry about the kids escaping! Great house if you want to splurge and enjoy the high life.
Bali Hai is an architecturally stunning home in a location that is within walking distance to Coconut Grove center and an easy drive to South Beach, Coral Gables and Key Biscayne. That said, it is hard to want to leave this property for any length of time.
The second floor covered veranda makes it possible to "live" outdoors - cook, relax, watch television. The pool and hot tub and little table on the patio are inviting during the day as well as evening. The bathrooms and kitchen are thoroughly and thoughtfully stocked. The lush grounds create a privacy that is welcome in such a central location.
We spent three weeks in this paradise and could easily have stayed longer. The owners and property manager are lovely to work with and the staff they employ are top notch. Everything is in working order and immaculate. We could not imagine wanting to stay anywhere else in South Florida.
Possibly the best house we have stayed at and we have tried a few. Seldom reality exceeds pictures but this was actually one of those moments. Very highest standards all over and a marvellous eye for design. The best things of a luxury hotel at the same time as you have your own space and feel like home. We had 5 kids with us, two teenagers and the remainders 2-10. Still the place felt spacious. Everyone enjoyed the spa while the different levels in the pool meant also the little guy could have some fun in the water. Good service when we arrived (greeted with chilled wine and cheese despite being 3 hours late) and left despite the fact that we had to change both check in and check outs. Thanks for that. We felt like home and would love to come back.

Located on Biscayne Bay just 10 minutes south of Downtown Miami, The Grove is unlike any other neighbourhood in Greater Miami and the Beaches. Coconut Grove's waterfront parks offer the best vantage points for observing manatees, wildlife and the sailboats of Biscayne Bay. Coconut Grove feels like a friendly small town with a wide range of restaurants and shopping destinations!
