If you want to stay in a storybook cottage in a lush romantic environment, then you have landed in the right place. The space and furnishings are artistic, eclectic and serene. My hosts were attentive, accommodating and extremely respectful of my space.
The location was just around the corner from parks, the marina, restaurants and the beautiful grove. I can't say enough about this jewel.
I can't wait to go back.

Sebastien and I stayed in Coconut Grove during in November/December and we rented the Cottage, This place was paradise!!! If you ever have a chance to go to Florida and stay in or near Miami, Rent this beautiful cottage, its perfect for a couple getaway or if you have a family and need more space, they also have a house next door that accommodates more. Our host Pierre was very hospitable and very kind! Whatever we needed he was there always. I love that the place was pet friendly, even my little Pomeranian Toni was enjoying the yard and felt at home. We will definitely come back soon!!! Thank you Yvette Godfrey Fournier ,Pierre, Bayne and Henry!!! You were wonderful hosts!
