Comfortable and affordable

  • 4 of 5

The owner Gardy is super friendly and welcoming. We were a little confused upon arrival as the rental is a small guest house in the back of the owners home through the front gate. The guest house was comfortable for our family of 4. One child slept on the couch and the other on the pullout futon. The master bedroom bed was comfortable and had a walk-in closet. The only thing that could use a cleaning is the dusty ceiling fan in the bedroom. The kitchen is small but adequate for making simple breakfasts and picnic lunches to go. The rental is about a 30 minute drive up Rte 1 directly into downtown Miami. There is a nice mall called The Falls about 5-10 minutes away with a great coffee shop (Pasion del Cielo) which quickly became our favorite. The Miami Zoo is super close to the rental too. Matheson Hammock Park and Botanical garden is a short drive away from the rental. Great place to have a picnic on the beach or rent kayaks. Nice view of downtown Miami. $7 parking on weekends. Overall we had a nice stay. This a great option if you want to save money and have easy access to both the Everglades and Miami.

On a side note: Gardy the owner saved the day for us. Our child accidentally left behind her watch in the rental and Gardy is mailing it to us. Thank you!!!

Nice place and a very friendly host

  • 4 of 5

Because our gps didn’t work well and we being very tired (so not being able to think logical), we had a bit trouble to find the house. But it all worked out well. The next morning we saw the fantastic garden. You can sit outside, having breakfast, looking at the birds ans squirls. That’s the big plus of this house. Everything is there. The AC is a bit noisy but I don’t like that anyway. We used the fans instead. The kitchen is well equiped and with sugar, milk, coffee for the furst days, salt and pepper. The interior is not coming from a magazine, but you live mostly outside. We didn’t mind. Gardy is a great storyteller and very helpfull. I would stay here again.

Nice Cottage, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We selected this cottage based on it's location in relation to a wedding we were attending. The location could not have been more perfect for anything in Palmetto Bay! We were never more than 15 -20 minutes from good food, our wedding festivities and the airport. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

Perfect location for exploring the Everglades and the Florida Keys

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had! Our purpose for visiting Florida was to spend 10 days exploring the Everglades National Park and the Cypress Preserve, and also to visit the Keys and the Dry Tortugas National Park. The location of the cottage was central to all of these destinations. The cottage is very comfortable for two friends travelling together who needed separate sleeping spaces. The bedroom is very spacious for one and certainly would easily accommodate a couple. The futon was also comfortable for sleeping, and would also accommodate two. The air conditioners kept the entire cottage cool and comfortable. The kitchen facilities were good, and the host was quite receptive to a couple of improvements that we suggested. Speaking of the host, you couldn't have a better one! He was personable and quick to respond to any questions we had. He showed us all the fruit trees in his backyard and graciously shared the coconuts and papayas with us. The surroundings are beautiful and the location very good for accessing the Dixie Highway and Florida Turnpike. I would not hesitate to recommend this location, and am already thinking about returning for a longer period next time. Thanks very much for providing great accommodation for our first visit to south Florida!
