Located in Brickell, this cottage is very close to other favorite Miami areas like Coconut Grove, Coral Gables and Key Biscayne. While clean-cut, the inside has refreshing aesthetics like the blue backsplash and red tile floor in the kitchen.

A staircase winds from the ground level outside to the roof. The hosts haven’t forgotten anything, as this escape is intricately decked out.
This modern room in this super cool bed and breakfast screams Miami—even better, it’s smack in the middle of South Beach, which is a major plus for lodging so unique. Rooms are meticulously decorated, and the wooden patio outside is “silver screen” worthy. A jacuzzi awaits outside amongst the downright breathtaking surroundings, and it’s an awesome place to wind down. Breakfast is included, of course, so expect delicious homemade offerings such as omelets, pancakes and yogurt with fresh fruit. If you are coming to Miami, but still are craving the personalized service of a quaint bed and breakfast, this is a solid choice.
Coral Gables offers both the city life and a taste of the past when the state was first established, so it’s an interesting neighborhood a short drive from South Beach.

The fenced-in backyard features an immaculate jacuzzi shaded by an awning. Inside is sleek and modern with one bedroom, a bathroom, and a convenient small kitchen.
In the Wynwood area of the city is yet another microscopically adorable cottage.

Out front presents in a cute way, and a hammock hangs between the posts making for the best place to drink an afternoon pina colada. What guests likely love the most is the privacy, peace and quiet and surrounding fruit trees that add that extra special touch.
Come to Miami, but feel like you’re in the rainforest in this rustic treehouse and permaculture farm.

There’s always something fun going on at this little farm, and if in season you even get the perk of enjoying local veggies and honey. Enjoy living simplistically while still being close to South Beach.
A true oasis in Miami’s Coconut Grove is behind a home, but you’d never guess it.

This two guest cottage would be perfect for Honeymooners.
