Coral Gables vacation rentals

A slice of the Mediterranean in South Florida

Home to the University of Miami and known around the world as The City Beautiful, Coral Gables delights travelers with its Spanish-Mediterranean style, effervescent sunshine, and laid-back vibe. Soak up the distinctive history, ornate architecture, and picture-perfect banyan-lined avenues that exemplify the city while you enjoy modern conveniences such as sleek boutique shopping, a foodie-approved dining scene, and some of Miami-Dade’s most popular happy hours. Coral Gables vacation rentals range from cute cottages to pool condos, each one offering a great base from which to explore this unique South Florida hotspot.

Boutique shopping and fine dining

A trip to Coral Gables promises to be a fun-packed vacation. This impeccably designed city offers the perfect backdrop for boutique shopping and wine tasting along Miracle Mile and at the open-air Shops at Merrick Park. When retail therapy turns into a desire to sit and watch the world go by, the city’s dining scene, with everything from casual pubs to fine French fare on the menu, caters for every culinary desire. As night falls, the city’s colorful arts scene comes to life, with live shows at the Actors’ Playhouse and indie films at the Coral Gables Art Cinema among the many ways to while away the evening.

Cultural attractions and outdoor escapades

All parts of this city present an opportunity to indulge in a spot of sightseeing, but the Coral Gables Museum is a good place to start. Set in one of the city’s very first buildings and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this popular spot hosts a varied calendar of exhibitions as well as regular downtown walking tours. Another cultural landmark is the Lowe Art Museum, or you could opt for a family-friendly canoe excursion along the Coral Gables Waterway. Need to cool down? A trip to the century-old Venetian Pool, arguably America’s prettiest public pool thanks to its coral rock, cave-like grottos, palm trees, and waterfalls, is a must.

Shoot for spring in Coral Gables

Miami’s tropical climate makes Coral Gables a popular destination throughout the year. The summer months of June through September offer seemingly endless sunny days and temperatures in the 80s, but are often quite humid and can feel crowded due to school breaks. Winter is the peak season, attracting international travelers and guests from the northern states in their rush to escape the cold. Spring is often cited as the best time to visit Coral Gables, as March through May offers comfortable temperatures, fewer crowds, and attractively priced Coral Gables vacation rentals.

Explore the lush landscape in Coral Gables

Lush scenery is a big part of the appeal in Coral Gables. The John G. Gifford Arboretum and the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden offer some serious flower power, crammed with kaleidoscopic flora from all over the world. If wide open spaces are more your thing, the 630-acre Matheson Hammock Park with its man-made atoll pool, original pavilion, and boating school offers a taste of Old Florida. Should finding a sandy spot be high on your agenda, the fabled surroundings of Miami’s South Beach are within a 30-minute drive of many Coral Gables vacation rentals.
