About Robin

We are native Floridians and have lived in South Florida all our life, we love to travel and meet new people. We are very quiet and considerate of our tenants and would love to help you discover and explore places while visiting our area. Sandy speaks Spanish but unfortunately we do not speak other languages.

Why Robin chose Miami

Our property is a nature lovers dream, we are in the plant business and our landscaping is very private and beautiful. We have lots of natural animals that love to visit such as raccoons, peacocks, iguana's, opossum and butterflies to name a few.

We have toys, a crib, toddler rails, high chair and stroller if you need to borrow. That way it is less items you need to pack.

What makes this cottage unique

Our pool with grotto is absolutely beautiful and very private to the neighbors. Lovely to swim and relax in. We are in a quiet neighborhood but very close to shopping, restaurants, beautiful botanical garden and a small local beach.

Better than pictures!

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect from the peacocks and two kitties that roamed the yard (this was very exciting to my 5 year old son and I!) to the fresh flowers on the table. We had everything we needed for our 5 night stay. The location was perfect - close to stores, restaurants, gardens, and parks, yet far enough out to feel like you’re getting away from the city. We loved going for walks around the yard/neighborhood and drinking our morning coffee by the gorgeous pool (the pool was still a tad bit chilly for my husband and I, but my son got in). My son especially loved the little closet that had toys, and to my surprise there was an old school steel Chinese checker/checker board. It was fun teaching him a game that I enjoyed playing so much with my great grandma 20 some years ago. I really can’t say enough good things and can’t wait to get the chance to visit again.

Wonderful pool in the "jungle" back yard with occasional wild Peacock's roaming thru it, lots of little lizards in the trees. We would go back to this house again for sure!!

Great change of pace from staying in hotels...

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location and accommodations during our trip back to Miami to visit family and friends. Comfortable, homey and definitely a tropical oasis. Robin made us feel very welcome. Enjoyed the pool area and peacocks wandering around as well! Beats a hotel any day and we'll definitely keep this in mind for our next trip. Thank you!

Very clean place and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. It's a very beautiful place to stay. The owners live right next door, very close, but we felt like we had plenty of privacy. The owners were very nice and helpful. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your guest house. We had a great time.

A beautiful tranquil getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time we had in this lovely oasis! The cottage is comfortable and well appointed. There is a generous supply of sheets and towels, including beach towels. The kitchen was well supplied with spices and many condiments. The convection / toaster oven worked well. We were able to bake prepared foods we got from Whole Foods (e.g. quiche and Mac and cheese) and also toast bread. The porch was perfect for dinner each evening. The outdoor space is magical. The pool and grounds are inviting. We were happily entertained by the peacocks. Morning coffee by the pool was sublime. It is a short drive to a number of interesting places like the Fairchild Botanical Gardens, which are gorgeous. And to top it off, our hostess Robin was a gem. We felt so welcomed and comfortable. Thank you so very much and we will be back!

The House was amazing comfortable nice and cozy its not a stove there so don’t expect to cook everyday like i did it’s a hot plate there i post to stayed there 5 nights but i didn’t last minute baby sitter back out so we had to bring the kids alone so the owner put us out at 1030pm we was force to find a hotel because it was 3 people’s over which was kids under 3 we offer to give a extra $200 to stay because i knew the money wasn’t going to be back on my card the same day to pay for a hotel and she refused and stayed we still have to go she didn’t understand that finding a hotel last minute in Miami will be hard and expensive i tried my best to change her mind but it didn’t work then when it was time to pay me back threw HomeAway she act as if she didn’t know what she was doing i was on the phone with them almost a hour before they put it threw the correct way oh and her house is two steps away from the guest house it’s also speakers threwout the guest house i believe she can hear what’s going on in the guest house in her house

Owner's Response: 1st off this guest booked for 4 nights not 5 and for 4 people the 1st night all was well but the second night they had an additional 12 people (3 of them toddlers). The house sleeps max 6. I told her she was welcome to stay with 6 people but the others would have to get a hotel room and that was at 8:00 at night when they arrived. Unfortunately there is only 1 bathroom, 2 bedrooms and the house does not accommodate so many people. The 6 were welcome to stay but she said they all had to stay together. If there was only 1 extra (over the 6) Being children I wouldn’t have had a problem but double the max amount and 3 times as many as they booked for was unacceptable. The speakers are only speaker covers and we can not hear what is being said in the guest house. I am sorry for the inconvenience but you were welcome to stay just not your whole party and I returned your money which VRBO/HomeAway advised me not to do as you had violated the terms.
