Really lovely. Peaceful, serene, and so pretty. The bed is extremely comfortable, the owners are very friendly and the location is perfect.
A lovely home away from home
The bungalow was a comfortable, quiet haven and had everything we needed and more. About a mile from downtown Coconut Grove, more than once we rode bikes along the wide walking.path and around town. Suzy and Phil are gracious hosts, welcoming and helpful as needed, yet otherwise giving us space. For us, this was a great getaway from a cold January in Boston.
We loved everything about our stay. The best part was our interesting, warm and generous hosts.
Lovely, but somewhat different than advertised.
Phil and Suzy were kind, welcoming, and very present hosts.
The property is very conveniently located in an adorable neighborhood, easily walkable to the 'main drag' of Coconut Grove. It should be clearly noted (as wasn't clear from the description) that the 'bungalow' is a room at the back of the hosts' home, with a (locked) pass-through door to their spare bedroom. While many things about the property were lovely and comfortable, a few relevant notes that previous reviewers seem to not have minded: there is a central air conditioning unit directly outside the bedroom window that makes stop-start noise throughout the night. The Satellite TV/remotes did not work easily or well while we were there. Also, if you are aiming for privacy, you might consider a less 'personal' host experience because it definitely feels as though you are sharing the property.
My parents enjoyed it!
I booked this for my parents and they really enjoyed it. It is a perfect accommodation for two people, looking to enjoy a stay in Coconut Grove. The place was fully furnished and well kept. The outdoor garden is beautiful and has nice sculptures and decoration. There are sensuous flowers and lights stringing the environs. My mom was frightened by an exotic cockroach, hahaha. My father and mother really enjoyed their pleasant and professional interactions with the hosts and would recommend this place to anyone.
Small, charming bungalow...good value for the price!
This simple, but charming in-law cottage is well-situated in Coconut Grove. It is clean and appointed as pictured.This small space is not particularly modern...the kitchen is original to the period as is the bath, but this was not a surprise. There is only one outlet in the bathroom above the sink so bring or ask for an extension cord if you need more. I had issues with the satellite TV...for some reason, it did not want to turn on easily. Also there did not seem to be some basic channels such as CNN, ESPN or CNBC. Perhaps I missed them, but I went through all the available channels and never saw them. (This may not be an issue for most people, but I need CNBC for my work so I want to point it out.) The space is very bright so bring eye shades if you like a dark space. It is quiet as it's in a residential neighborhood. The bed gets an A+ for comfort...I slept like a baby. Suzy, the proprietor, lives on the property and is very welcoming and friendly. All in all, if you're looking for a small, comfortable space in this area for a reasonable price, I recommend this property.
