About Françoise or Nick
I grew up in France where my first profession (ballerina) took me to different part of my country and Europe. Later I came to California where my children were born. During the 90's Nick and I lived both in Paris and Miami while he pursued his fashion photography career. When I first came to Miami I chose Coconut Grove as then it was the center of cultural activities and home of many artists.
Françoise or Nick purchased this House in 1984
Why Françoise or Nick chose Northeast Coconut Grove
This has been our home in this unique neighborhood for a long time. The children are gone and we would like to share it with guests on occasion allowing us to travel too.
What makes this House unique
Lots of character, authenticity yet close to everything in Miami.

We had a great stay, definitely hidden oasis! Recommend it to everybody!
We had a very great stay in this lovely and beautiful hidden oasis! Also really great and peaceful neighborhood. Francoise was very friendly and very helpful and we get great advice. We could ask her anything. If we would go back to Miami we would definitely stay here again and we could recommend it to everybody.
Clean and great hosts.
This was in a great location and the house was very cool. Our hosts were wonderful!
This house was in a great location and our hosts were wonderful. The house was very, very cool. Close to downtown Coconut Grove, Vizcaya, Fairchild Gardens,....really close to just about everything we wanted to see. Not far from South Beach and the Design District and little havana. We had some wonderful food around town. LuLu's for lunch in Coconut Grove was wonderful. The best salad I have had in a long time. My only reccomendations would be to get a larger TV in the living room. We don't watch much TV, especially on vacation but we do watch the news....and to put up more hooks or towel racks in the bathrooms. I didn't want to throw my towel over the door because the door was painted so we threw them in the dryer everyday. Not very eco friendly. It would be helpful to have a light over the dining room table. A great stay. Thanks Nick and Francouise!!
Had an amazing stay here. Everything we needed was there. We were in Miami for Sailing and was great to borrow the bikes to get around.
There was just enough room for us 6 girls.
Thank you again.
This is a real gem of a property in a fabulous location.
Sometimes it is all the little touches that make a house a home, this is what Francois and Nick have achieved.
From the time i started communication every detail was achieved.Christmas decorations to food selection in place as requested.
They deserve way more than 5 stars.
Anne and Jerry
Hi Anne, thank you for the kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family however briefly. Nick enjoyed his chat with Jerry over plant life. Glad you enjoyed the neighborhood as it is special indeed. Hope your trip back went smoothly. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
Lovely home and property
The house is lovely. The property is beautiful and very private. There are many places inside and out to gather. Francoise and Nick are wonderful hosts! Amenities were perfect. Would highly recommend.
