From the moment you step inside Casa Carby you are transported into a serene state of mind. The floor to ceiling French doors and windows along the home, welcomes an abundance of natural light inside along with the beauty of Mother Nature. The open layout allows energy to ebb and flow with ease. Exhale your stress and worries and unwind in modern comfort. Enjoy your morning among wild parrots, hummingbirds and giant Monarch butterflies (attracted to the many varieties of flowers in our garden). Take a stroll down to the sparking edge of Biscayne Bay and catch the pelicans feeding their young or record wild dolphins at play.
Casa Carby encourages guests to feel at home and relax poolside under Miami's turquoise blue sky or nestle into an original Louis XV arm chair with a good read on your iPad or book. Enjoy original 17th-19th century art and antiques throughout the home and a top of the line gourmet kitchen. High-speed/reliable WiFi throughout premise.
Casa Carby has three spacious bedrooms: “Oracabessa Master Suite” decorated with a modern Caribbean ambience complete with King Bed and Full Bathroom not to mention great views of the garden and pool. Next comes “Onguma Guest Suite” decorated with a modern African elegance much like a luxury safari sanctuary. This suite comes complete with Queen Bed and access to full bathroom. Last, we have “La Provence Guest Suite #2”. Feel as if you have stepped into the French countryside with hand-embroidered linens on the Queen Bed, delicate antique accents.
Please note, we do run Casa Carby as a B&B in that we do live on premise, out in the cottage. Our presence and footprint is light and discreet. We are there to maintain the manicured grounds, clean the pool daily, provide information and assistance to guests when needed. We have a private entrance and remain 'invisible' during to our guests who stay.
Current owners Colin and Nathalie Carby bought the slice of paradise in 2006 and named it Casa Carby. They began welcoming friends, family and guests shortly thereafter. Both owners were fed and bred on hospitality having been born into cultures that understand the essence of it. Embracing best guest practices from Jamaica, Hungary, and Thailand, Colin and Nathalie are living up to their heritage (and life experiences) and living their dream of creating exceptional moments and memories for those that stay at Casa Carby. When not welcoming guests, the couple is busy entertaining their rescued dogs (“souvenirs” from Vietnam and Zimbabwe when they were living and working abroad). Casa Carby is a dog-friendly vacation destination.
The incredible positive energy of the home, the peace and happiness is quite palpable.
