A charming, unique window into a Miami of yore, steps from the Miami of the future. The home is within walking distance to Downtown Coconut Grove and just off Biscayne Bay. You’ll love the place because of the lush tropical landscape, the neighborhood, the history, the seclusion, and last but not least, the water. The cottage is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).

We are also happy to report that we have not sustained any damage from the recent hurricanes.

The space

Nestled among the tropical canopy of Coconut Grove, this 100+ year-old cottage is the perfect retreat for the discerning traveler, minutes from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Coconut Grove, the water, close to the Brickell and Downtown communities, and a short drive to Miami Beach.

You enter the home in a large living area replete with lounge space and seating, continue through to the Sun Room filled with light and even more seating areas, as well as a dining table. Walking through the second bedroom leads you to the hallway appurtenant to the unique kitchen, the bathroom, linen closet, and larger, main bedroom. Both bedrooms have small, walk-in closets.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the large property, parking, an outdoor shower, and bicycles. Offsite access to public tennis courts and the water basin across the street are also available. There is also an on-site manager who lives in a second structure on the property available for questions and assistance.

Delightful Cottage home with historic look and feel in the heart of the old Coconut Grove. 20 minutes from everything from the sights, beaches and of course shopping and eating in the Grove. I was traveling with my daughters both lesson 7 years old and the enjoyed the home immensely. Nice attention to detail while keeping the home as feeling as you're living within the incredibly beautiful and natural paradise of this timeless neighborhood.

This place is just fantastic! I stayed here for 6 nts on a business trip... I'm female and I arrived alone at night and I ended up in great hands. Eric was very responsive from beginning to end even while I was driving down I95 in the dark running late. Doc & Tracy, who live on the property, are wonderful co-hosts. Doc met me in the dark with a flashlight and got me settled. Tracy arrived off a long-haul from Paris the next day and the first thing she did was check on me. The last night I was there, she brought me dinner and a bottle of wine because the fridge had gone out... so sweet!! The property is a charming, historic bungalow in very established tropical garden. I usually stay in South Beach for work but this time I stayed in Coral Gables which felt like a getaway...quiet and safe in a very upscale neighborhood where families live rather than tourists. For the business traveler... wifi connect was great, nice toiletries and easy access to main roads. Also, the property is electronically gated which was a plus. I wish I could have enjoyed Coral Gables more but alas.. I was working. I would consider staying here again for a Miami vacation rather than dealing with South Beach. Loved it... just got home and I kinda miss the joint!

Can't say enough great things about Eric's place!! We were visiting family and decided to stay in an AirBNB vs my parents house to give us some private space. What a difference! We actually felt like we were on a vacation and not 15yo living in my parents house . Also the house is just 20m away from everything! So convenient especially when you have a small child in tow. Will definitely be back again!!

Everything was just perfect! My husband and I felt in love with what we call "our little tropical paradise". The house is absolutely charming and so comfortable. We could rest and enjoy the peace and the soothing beauty of the place. Tracy was welcoming and available to answer our questions. And one evening, coming back from supper, we had a nice surprise: a star fruit from the garden! Thanks to Tracy et Eric. I highly recommend this place.

Very lovely property on a fenced lot. Your hostess Tracy was always available for your special needs. The location was excellent for sightseeing and the provided bikes were excellent for getting around the town of Coconut Grove. A beautiful older cottage that has been upgraded for your comfort. We would most certainly return.

We just spent a week at this property and we absolutely loved it. The cottage is simply lovely. My personal favourites were the master bedroom (the bed was divine) with the filtered light, the sunroom, the bathroom, and the peaceful yard. The property is in close proximity to restaurants, shops, etc. In fact, we walk each morning to a local cafe in the heart of the Grove. And both Tracy and Eric were hospitable and clear communicators. We would definitely stay there again.
