Our cottage is a completely detached guesthouse with a private entrance. The cottage consists of a large bedroom with a queen size bed, adjoining spacious sitting room and private bathroom (approx 700 sq. ft. total). Flowing white sheers and a wall of sliding glass doors open onto the pool--heated or chilled to your taste--which is exclusively yours to use during your stay. The entire pool and garden area are completely private from our neighbors.

Amenities include high speed wi-fi, Nespresso coffee maker, refrigerator with separate freezer compartment, iHome radio/ipod player, Sony portable bluetooth speaker and luxurious linens and towels.

Off street, covered parking is provided. You can get to Miami Beach in about ten minutes by car and you can get to South Beach in about fifteen minutes by car. Numerous restaurants and bars are within a five minute drive. Miami International Airport is 15 minutes away by car, Ft. Lauderdale International airport is 25 minutes away by car.

No pets please. Smoking is not allowed in the guesthouse but is allowed outside by the pool/garden.

Professional massage services by a licensed massage therapist are available on premises including poolside. If you are interested in massage during your visit please inquire in advance about availability and to schedule your appointment(s).

UPDATE: As a result of helpful feedback from our guests in May 2017, we installed retractable shades in the guesthouse,

which, in addition to the existing sheers insure our guests complete privacy and comfort.

PLEASE NOTE: For insurance reasons we are unable to accommodate parties or groups events.

                                                          Elegant, comfortable - hidden gem!

                                                          Bettina J.

                                                          I was pleasantly surprised by this property - the pictures don't do it justice. I personally love clean lines in my living space - this property is so beautiful I really can't write it enough. The cottage is within short driving distances to the beaches, shopping, downtown and the airport.

                                                          Beautiful pool - great place to meditate in the morning. The owners provide a binder with restaurants, night-life, beaches and their own personal favorites on cultural events. (A great time saver when making a decision on the run).

                                                          Hands down this is the nicest property I rented and I've rented in Paris, Upstate NY and Orlando. I look forward to returning to returning here in the future. Another aspect I like - the owners welcome you upon arrival - nice personal touch after your travels away from home and YES there is plenty of privacy.

                                                          Top Notch!!!

                                                          Roe R.

                                                          A great place to stay and relax. Super clean, quite, and private. The owner is very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Highly recommend.

                                                          A Peaceful and Tranquil Retreat!

                                                          Denise M.

                                                          Joseph's home is in a very quiet and tranquil part of Miami. The neighborhood was just stunning with all the mature trees and well-kept homes; we were delighted to see a couple of free running peacocks wandering about in people's yards (they were very friendly by the way :-)). The cottage was very comfortable and well appointed. Joseph reached out to us and let us know we could check-in early, greeted us upon arrival, and gave us a few suggestions for places to check out. We really appreciated this peaceful retreat as Miami is a pretty bustling city, we were very happy to return to the cottage after a long day of touring Miami. A very comfortable and relaxing cottage....very much recommended for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat!

                                                          Exceeded Expectations, Fantastic Place to Stay!

                                                          Roger C.Phoenix, Arizona

                                                          Overall I had a great experience staying here. The owners were hugely accommodating to me first of all by letting me place a reservation rather far out in advance, and secondly working with me for an early check-in due to my flight schedule. The cottage is quiet, clean, private, and comfortable. The pool/garden area was great and contributed to the overall feeling of relaxation on the property. I was afforded complete privacy my entire trip, although the owners were very clear that if I had any questions/comments/concerns they were available. The neighborhood in general is beautiful and safe, I had multiple Uber drivers say how nice of a neighborhood it was. I would stay here again!

                                                          Personal oasis!

                                                          Bessette J.

                                                          I booked this guest house for my husband as a surprise. Joseph was extremely friendly, professional, and welcoming at the same time! The pictures looks just like the space!! The bed is so comfortable we slept for hours. The pool is warm! We only got in when the sun went down because we were running the streets all day lol. They offer lots of insight on where you can go so don’t be afraid to ask. Overall it was the best choice we could of made! The house was located in such a beautiful area away from all the tourist and loud crowds. The privacy was not a problem at all and they don’t sit around the house because you are there. They live their lives! I will definitely be back soon!!

                                                          Great Property!!!

                                                          Mike D.Chaska, MN

                                                          This was the perfect place to stay while my wife & I were in Miami for a continuing education course. It is close to the airport (around 15 minutes) and the beach (South Beach was a 30-40 minute drive in traffic). Joe was a great host and met us in the back alley to make sure we knew where to park for covered parking during our stay (it was raining when we arrived). The pool was great for a quick dip at night after long days. There are many great restaurants in the area. We would recommend Steve's Pizza for NY-style pizza, CJ's Crab Shack in South Beach for great seafood, Public Deli for great sandwiches on the run, and the Cream Parlor for wonderful ice cream. The place is super-clean and had everything we needed. Thanks for everything Joe!!!
