Little Gables Cute Cottage & Private Garden and Barbecue

Bedrooms 2
Space 500 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Centrally Located Gem

This unit is next to the main house and has a private access with a beautiful garden. It gives the perfect setting for the best vacation in a quiet location. In the outside you will find a barbecue with sitting arrangements accompanied by the great Florida Weather. The unit has been completely redone and we insure that everything is in impeccable condition. It's perfect for a small group, but we do not recommend this unit for more than 5 people because it will take away from the comfort the property has to offer. If you are looking for a larger unit we recommend you to book the main house that is for 12 + people. The link for that property is:

**We also rent out 150cc scooters at an unbeatable price, great for going to the beach and driving around Miami. Will personally drop them off at the property if interested**

Little Gables Cute Cottage & Private Garden and Barbecue
average rating of 4.5 based on 16 reviews

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Only property I have ever stayed in with a perfect combination of having a central location, but remaining calm and quiet.

The property is clean and well-kept, and the property manager provided excellent customer service. We did not need him much because everything was perfect, but whenever we had a question he responded immediately.

Highly recommend!

Cozy, Comfortable and very central!

  • 5 of 5

This house hosted one of my best vacations. Stayed with some friends and family, very nice, it was 6 of us and we used all the accommodations this place had. Kitchen was comfortable to cook great dinners after our long days in the city or beach. The house is in a residential area and is very close to Miamis great attractions. The jacuzzi was perfect after our long touristic days. The beds are comfortable. The unit is shared with a bigger one next door, but is very comfortable and we had no problems with our neighbors. The place was very clean, and the host, Pablo was of great service. We enjoyed the complementary champagne. I will be definitely coming back next time im in town.

Worst rental on VRBO !

  • 1 of 5

This was positively our worst rental ever on VRBO!

The 'apartment' was nothing but a converted garage, dark and narrow.

The 'kitchen' had a total of 12" of counter space, useless for any meal preparation. Coffee maker and toaster occupied about 1/2 of the only table. Stove was dirty. The sink had no garbage disposal, and of course no dishwasher.

There was no washer/dryer a huge inconvenience.

The outdoor space was extremely noisy because the AC units for both apartments in the building were located next to the space where you would like to sit down to relax. In addition the unpaved area on the back was full of garbage.

The bathroom was so small only one person could be on it at one time.

There was a second bedroom with four bunk beds, implying a total potential occupancy of six persons, with a single door - a potential code violation.

I immensely regret having rented this apartment.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience, but please don't guide yourself by this person's review. If you read all the other reviews you will see that not a single one displayed the same concerns that this person did. Just like for every product/service there's always going to be someone that is going to go out of their way to write an unfair review that is filled with false information. The unit is exactly as described a 2bed/1bath that can accommodate up to 7 people with the sofa bed. We ensure that the property is in absolute immaculate condition before we render it rentable for other guests. With that being said, this is not a hotel. The guest demanded new towels and linens whenever he was out of clean ones and also demanded to have the property cleaned regularly without paying any additional fees. Without a doubt, one of the most difficult people I've had the chance to work with and I manage 22 properties! The property is exactly as described on the listing.

A cute cottage in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Miami helping my son, who attends the University of Miami, move into a new apartment for school this year. The house is in a good location for enjoying shops and restaurants in the Coral Gables area. You will need a car to get around. It is decorated nicely and had all the necessary supplies that we needed for our stay. I wouldn't recommend the house for more than one couple, because the second bedroom has two bunk beds. It would be great for a couple with 1-4 children....although there is only one very small bathroom.

Loved it! Great house, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

My mom was visiting from my country and I was in charge of renting a house here in Miami and Orlando. We had a bad experience in Orlando and we were already afraid of what we were going to find. My mom was really happy and amazed of such cute, nice and clean house! It has a little kitchen with pans, plates and utensils ready for you to cook whatever you want, towels were provided, and a little surprise awaits for you inside the fridge! The sofa turns into a bed, comfortably up to 8 persons can sleep here. Thank you Pablo and family for such an amazing welcome, we really enjoyed your house.
