Historical coral rock cottage located in Florida City. Our cottage is 15 minutes from the main entrance to the Everglades National Park, 45 minutes south of South Beach Miami (30 min from the Miami Int'l Airport) and 30 minutes north of the Florida Keys (3hours north of Key West/Southern Most Point)
THE COTTAGE is a small but spacious 3 bedrooms and 1full bath with a fully loaded kitchen and bath. There is a master bedroom with a queen bed and walk-in closet, a second bedroom with an armoir, queen bed and private entrance, and a "Florida Room" with a futon twin/double bed. (The private entrance for the bedroom is what appears to be th...e main entrance from the outside. It is an old house with years of additions and a funky lay out)
THE KITCHEN has everything you need and more while on vacation; fridge/freezer, stove/oven/microwave/microwave oven, pots, pans, a dish for everything, coffee maker, blender, food processor, waffle iron, kitchen aid mixer, spices, oils, coffee, sugar, tea, etc.
THE BATHROOM is luxurious with a jacuzzi tub surrounded by soft honey comb colors.
WE HAVE WIRELESS internet access as well as Google T.V. It is like a smart phone for your T.V. We do not have traditional cable, but there is Netflix, Youtube, as well as internet access through the T.V. If you have a portable hard drive (with music, picture and video) with a usb cable you can connect to the Google box and access the hard drive from the T.V.
We have (for now) an unfinished but functional LAUNDRY ROOM with washer, dryer, laundry soap and iron/iron board. We still maintain access to the laundry room while the house is being rented. The laundry room can be accessed from outside the house and does not connect inside to the house.
Florida City has a small almost rural feel but in the last few years has acquired many conveniences of a big city. With in walking distance of our house there is a bakery for the sweet stuff and excellent coffee, a couple of small grocery stores for the staples (eggs, milk, bread, beer etc), a Starbucks (the bakery has way better/cheaper coffee but we all like what we like), Cracker Barrel Restaurant, Walgreen's Drugstore, and more fast food than you can shake a stick at.
