Our home

Our home is very open and spacious with peach colored ceramic tile and carpets in all the bedrooms. The large master bedroom has a queen bed with t.v., dresser, couch and vanity. The master bath has two sinks, jacuzzi tub, shower, toilet and bidet. The second bedroom has a double bed and shares a bathroom with the third bedroom which has two twin beds. The fourth bedroom has its own bathroom and has a twin bed with trundle. The office (which was the dining room) has a computer and a pull out couch that sleeps two. The fifth bedroom at the moment is used for storage. The kitchen has Corian counters and a butcher block island which seats three. It opens onto the breakfast nook which can seat six. The family room is beyond the breakfast nook with couch and loveseat, cable t.v. and DVD/VHS player.

Going outside, the back has a very nice size loggia complete with wicker furniture and dining table. The backyard pool is surrounded by a beautiful patio, with chairs, lounges and patio table with umbrella. In the backyard there are over 20 palm trees, luscious foliage and overlooks a wooded pine tree preserve.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a couple in our 50's with two grown up daughters (one in college and one almost in grad school). This will be our first house swap, but we did rent our house once before when we went to Colorado for Christmas and the occupants had a fabulous time. We ride our bikes to the University of Miami all the time on a bicycle trail that goes right by it. We have a cup of coffee or a light lunch and watch the students as they play frisbee or a pick-up game of football. It's a lovely environment with lots of shade trees and beautiful landscaping.

    We are sure we will love your home as much as you will love ours.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live on a cul-de-sac with easy access to the metro-rail (twenty minute walk or 5 minute car ride.) We are also a five minute car ride to Dadeland Mall(Macy's, Gap, Nordstroms, etc.)and Dadeland Station (Target, Best Buy, Michaels, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Sports Authority). We are 5 minutes outside of South Miami, 15 minutes to Coconut Grove, 15 minutes to Coral Gables, and about a half hour or so to South Beach. There are also closer beaches(but not as famous) like Matheson Hammock and Key Biscayne. There are also many restaurants to choose from, (from Mexican to Cuban to Italian or French) all very close by.

We are exactly one hour from Key Largo (where you can go snorkelling at the State Park) and about 4 hours to Key West. In the other direction, we are less than an hour to Ft. Lauderdale.
