The place is a private studio/apartment in Miami, minutes away from downtown Coral Gables that is a converted garage of my house. It is accessed from the side private terrace by the outdoor dining area. It is completely separated from the rest of the house.

We include regular towels and beach towels, linens, shampoo & conditioner, body wash, body cream and hand soap. Your room is also equipped with a hair dryer, iron and iron board.
