Basketball aficionados like the Indiana Pacers fans will go anywhere, even if they have to walk, to watch them play. So it will be on April 7 in Miami when the Bucks play the Miami Heat. There’s no question you’ll be there. The question is which Miami vacation rentals to book?
Why Miami Short Term Rentals?
There’s a reason hotels are closing. There’s a reason they’re trying to stay open by remodeling and making incredible offers and discounts. Why stay in a cramped room in which you don’t want to wake up at 7 am to get breakfast before you check out at 11 am?
When you fly to Miami to see the game, you want to relax. You want room to stretch your arms and legs in around 400 to 700 or more square feet without tripping over someone. A kitchenette in which you can cook food not restaurant-bland would be great. A water view would be even greater.
Miami luxury rentals are drawing basketball fans from all over the country and all over the world to stay in Miami for the games. Visitors have the above-listed attractions to enjoy added to the pool and jacuzzi, squash courts, gym, and business center plus watching power forward Darren Collison play basketball! Hotels can’t offer this. What amenities are available in vacation rentals in Miami?
iCoconutGrove Miami vacation rentals is about comfort, convenience, and luxurious pampering if only for a couple days, a week, or a month. However long you have to cheer on point guard Tyreke Evans, then you’ve a lot to enjoy before and after the game. He might even be checking out Coconut Grove’s largesse along with you.
Are you an outdoorsman? Does riding a bike, driving a golf cart, or walking the three miles to Miami to see the game do it for you? Before and after the game, Coconut Grove is jam packed with parks through which to skate, hike, bike, or otherwise tour. Bring the kids and the dog along; there’s plenty for them to do in their portions of the parks.
You wouldn’t be here if you weren’t the sporting type. Are you the golf type? One of Coconut Grove’s more physical amenities is its two courses which are both a challenge and a pleasure to the veteran as well as the newbie golfer.
The Biltmore complete with historical hotel in the background offers golfers 18 of the most challenging and prettiest holes with only six involving water. You’ll find the Biltmore in Coral Gables.
The Crandon course was once the site of the 18 year PGA tour in Key Biscayne. Ten minutes outside your Miami short term rentals, Crandon is more secluded, but you’ll love the mangroves and lush foliage.
Are these too physical for you, but you want to get out, too? iCoconutGrove has you covered. What better way to see South Florida before and after the Indiana Pacers game, with Goga Bitaze playing center, than to go on an Everglades Tour?
You’ll tour some of the one and a half million acre park on an air boat. This is much like a huge race car’s roll cage invested with a just as huge fan and mounted on the back of a boat. You’ll skim along the water while watching nature’s critters in their natural habitats not to mention the stunning flora making up the habitats.
Not interested in crocs and gators? You’ve just enough time before the game to jog down to Key West to enjoy some of their history and fun. Said on a glass bottomed boat to see the incredible underwater life. Go parasailing to see it from the air or snorkeling to see it up close and personal. Then it’s back to your Miami luxury rentals to get ready for the game.
Leaving your fully furnished, roomy vacation rental with the kitchenette might be a little difficult, but when you do, you have much, much more to do before or after the game. If activity isn’t your thing, shopping might do the trick. Hop On and Hop Off the bus as you shop in town or tour the millionaire homes in cruises. You could always tour the Miami Seaquarium or the Zoo Miami with the kids for some time with the animals.
What About Dining?
Most Bucks fans don’t fly to Miami and stay in luxurious vacation rentals just so they can cook like they do at home. They’re going to try the local cuisine. Whose cooking is better to try than the owner of your luxurious vacation rental?
For 30 years, iCoconutGrove owner Sylvano Bignon’s European influence has dazzled diners. Sylvano wanted his eateries to be more than just a name on a list of Miami’s fine dining lists. He wanted patrons to gather, have fun, and walk away with a “lifestyle.” You’ll probably run into more Bucks players here than you might on a Key West tour, for example.
There are burgers for the kids as well as for game-goers with burger cravings. However, no matter for which meal you come to GreenStreet, you’ll leave with a better understanding of pasta, salads, and seafood. It’s about how he pairs goat cheese with pasta, mushrooms in ravioli, or the sauce he uses with his salmon. The main takeaway here is that flavor isn’t exclusively limited to individual items.
Then there’s Lulu. Right across from GreenStreet, Sylvano’s second dining experience brings you European taste sensations with organic flair. Sourced locally, the organic ingredients, cooked and baked fresh every day foods form an unforgettable experience.
Try chicken and waffles for brunch or perhaps goat cheese croquettes. When lunch rolls around, taste the slow cooked lamb ribs or maybe the salmon penne. Time for supper? Do not miss the crispy mini tuna tacos as an appetizer or the filet au poivre. Talk about walking away with a lifestyle, but this is one to run home with.
Is There Night Life To Enjoy?
You bet there’s night life! No matter what time of the evening you want to step outside your luxurious home away from home, there will be music and fun to enjoy. If you’re looking for pubs or taverns, sports bars, or sidewalk cafe-type surroundings, then Coconut Grove has what you want.
GreenStreet and Lulu in the Grove have all the night life you should need, but if it’s time to move on, check out something different at the Oasis Lounge and Hookah Bar. If, on the other hand, you seek clubs the likes of which CSI: Miami was always showing, then pop into Shots. You’ll be prancing around wearing absurd things just like the cast of the TV show in an effort to snag a glass of your favorite drink.
