About our home

This lovely, separate and completely private cottage is located in the backyard of our 1937 home, in a peaceful residential neighborhood six blocks from the ocean and a gorgeous, world-class beach. It is also ten minutes from South Beach, Lincoln Road, the Miami Design District and all the lively and interesting areas that you'll want to visit. It's a cozy, quiet, one bedroom cottage perfect for a couple, with a queen-size bed in the bedroom with a new very comfortable mattress. There's a windowed bathroom with a tiled shower, a light and airy living room with a flat screen tv and a comfortable pull-out couch with a memory foam mattress which can sleep a kid or two in a pinch, and a private screened in porch with an eating area and relaxing space. There is also a private deck with a chaise lounge and comfortable chair for reading and relaxing. The kitchen includes everything needed for simple cooking and dining in a breezy, open and airy space.
