Such lovely and lush surroundings makes for a very private setting. Carl's "yard" is a wildlife habitat, and you're surrounded by lovely tropical trees and other plantings that create a serene and sequestered environment. The cottage is well appointed -- everything you might …

Wonderful experience. Private tropical paradise. The wild peacock on the roof was a nice touch. We will most definitely return.

Carl and Kathy are very hospitable. They provided us with local tips and even delicious mangos from their home grown trees! It is a true tropical paradise with a short distance to the hustle and bustle.

A little oasis in Miami. Enjoy downtown Miami and the beach, and then escape to this little private oasis! Incredibly friendly hosts, clean and comfortable.

Great place to stay! Great for 2 people. The pool and the view were amazing! Carl and Kathy were very delightful and welcoming. Would stay there again definitely. About 20 minutes from downtown and lots of stuff in the area. It was great.
