Beautiful South Grove Cottage in Peaceful Setting

Bedrooms 1
Space 600 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Unique Board and Batten Cottage that will take you back to the days of Old Cocoanut Grove. The property is enclosed with a six foot stone wall to ensure your privacy. A keystone patio with palms and flowers complete your tropical paradise. Our tree lined streets make for a short walk into the Grove for restaurants, shoppes, art galleries, and parks on the Bay. The peacocks often come to visit, and when the smell of jasmine fills the air, the setting is complete.

Rent a couple of bikes, and enjoy the bike path that runs north and south along the bay. Beaches lie to the north, the closest being Key Biscayne. To the south is beautiful Matheson Hammock Park, with swimming area and marina. Next to that is Fairchild Tropical Gardens, a world-class botanical garden. There are nice day trips to the Everglades if you have a car. The Keys are an hour away, with Key West 150 miles. Disney is 3 to 4 hours to the north. University of Miami parents love the location for visits. This is a quiet area of the Grove, providing a picturesque location to relax after a fun-filled day.

About MIchelle

My husband and I have lived in the Grove for many years. He's a stonemason and his art can be seen throughout the property. We have raised our children here and love the Grove.

MIchelle purchased this cottage in 1992

Why MIchelle chose Southwest Coconut Grove

This cottage will show you what the old Grove was like. Our neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet and you will enjoy walking our narrow streets either into town or to the waterfront.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your place was the perfect home for us while we got to meet our first grandchild. We love the neighborhood with its overgrown jungle feeling and all the interesting houses. We have been very comfortable in this little bungalow, tucked underneath the palms. Thank you for your hospitality.

Wonderful and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed for a week to be close to my daughter who lives in the Grove with her infant son. It was a perfect location, cosy, and well-maintained. Michelle responded immediately when the coffee maker broke down by replacing it before we needed our caffeine fix in the am. She is a wonderful host and I would recommend this spot to anyone looking for the Grove experience. We would definitely stay there again.

Relaxing retreat in the Old Grove

  • 4 of 5

I booked this location to live like a local prior to possible buying in the Grove. It is easy to walk to the center of town and visit Coco Walk. If you want a beach type of vacation this is wrong as it is a removed area and ideal for older couples or people with children may like the casual atmosphere.

My only complaint was a lack of closet space and the bath could use repair.

Be prepared for the peacocks at night when they seem to love to come alive and can be very noisy. the bath is located in the one real bedroom. It is a lovely neighborhood and Mitchell and her daughter are very personable.

I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this unique accommodation if you want your privacy and enjoy seeing Old Grove homes and newer Mansions in one neighborhood.

Thank you for a pleasant stay.

A Charming “Grove” Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week so that we could spend time with our son and family, yet be on our own. This cottage offers a true “Coconut Grove experience”. It is close to everything, yet a little bit apart. It is beautiful, quiet and peaceful, and Michelle was very friendly and helpful. The cottage had everything we needed, and the library of books to read was excellent, especially the ones about the area. We will definitely plan to stay again. It was a GREAT experience!

Very Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Great palce to stay in Coconut Grove. Located close to the shopping area. Everything you need is here. Loved the patio to sit and enjoy a drink. The home is walled off so you have your privacy. The price is right and the owners are the best. I would recommend this place if you are on a budget and still want to spend time in the "grove". We will return to this little piece of tropical paradise.

Great location -- nice neighborhood for strolling and walking to nearby shops and restaurants. Full kitchen has everything you need for cooking, though nearby restaurants are an easy walk. Good price, clean and private. Friendly and helpful owner; my husband and I will definitely stay here again. Loved the wild peacocks around the neighborhood!
