“Wonderful House in a Wonderful Neighborhood”
Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This house is just as the headline says, stunning and unusual. Parts of its single story date back to the 1940's, but it has been extensively restored and refinished in to something truly unique -- sort of Japanese, sort of Craftsman, and all together delightful. The place is lovely to look at, with objects and pictures from all over the world, but it isn't in the least fussy, and is very easy to live in. Outside, the house is deep in a jungly garden, so dense that it makes the house completely private -- as well as dowsing it in tropical ambiance.

The house is also very well equipped. The appliances (including a dishwasher, a washer and a dryer) are all top of the line, and easy to use. There is one full bath, an outside shower/bath, and a partial bath in the master bedroom. Once again, everything is good quality and works well. There's air conditioning and heating, but we barely used either -- on a few very warm days, we ran the air conditioner for an hour to bring the house down to 72. It stayed there. The house is extremely quiet, and there is plenty of room for off-street parking, There's a screened porch and a walled garden which our dog loved, and from which he could not escape.

Finally, the owners are friendly and very helpful, but not in the least over-present. They were there when we arrived and explained everything clearly (there's also an instruction book, if you forget), and also very kindly offered to bring us a copy of the New York Times crossword puzzle every day!

The immediate neighborhood is very quiet, and very charming. Most streets have no through access, so there is very little traffic, and most houses have tropical planting. In some cases (as with this house) the planting is dense; along with the many big old trees in the neighborhood, this can create the impression of a well-mannered jungle. There is an excellent casual restaurant (Berries) very nearby, and a lot more in the center of Coconut Grove, a mile away and a pleasant walk. The neighborhood, and the house, are so nice that it was very tempting just to stay put!

Liked best: The house itself, and the immediate neighborhood
Liked least: The fact that if you want to go anywhere outside of Coconut Grove, you have to drive miles and miles on freeways.
