It’s coming. The basketball game between the Miami Heat and the Orlando Magic is going to happen on March 4 in Miami. You’ve got your plane ticket and the time off from work. The snag is that you’ve no clue where to stay in Miami for the game. Might we suggest staying in an iCoconutGrove Miami vacation rentals studio or apartment?
What Are Miami Vacation Rentals?
Imagine picking up your comfortable home and moving it into a space in Miami’s Coconut Grove community. All that comfort will be located in a building overlooking the quiet blue Biscayne Bay and smack in the center of the historical Coconut Grove community.
Picture it: you’re just off the plane when you flop onto the bed in exhaustion. You don’t hit the hard mattress of a hotel bed with its cold, comfortless bedspread. You hit the fluffy blankets and pillows and softness of a regular bed, one from which you can check out the views comfortably.
You are in a studio or full apartment in an exclusive vacation rental building instead of the cookie cutter room of a chain hotel. You have space larger than eight square feet (that’s an exaggeration, but we’re sure you get the point.) Your bathroom is full sized with enough room for you and/or another person to get ready to see Aaron Gordon and Bam Adebayo square off on the basketball court.
Did we mention the kitchen? Most vacationers try to save money while they’re enjoying the local color and sights. They wish they had a small kitchenette in which to prepare a few meals instead of eating out three times every day. Well, you’re in luck. Miami luxury rentals include either a kitchenette or a full on kitchen.
In addition to all this, you’ll have space in Miami short term rentals to open your laptop and get down to business with WiFi included. There’s also a business center for your convenience. The one thing you might not have at home that your vacation rental has is the pool and jacuzzi on the eighth floor, the gym, sauna, and squash courts.
About Coconut Grove
Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood is the oldest neighborhood in continuous use in Miami in Miami-Dade County, FL. It’s a place of intensely green grass and trees in stunning parks, intensely blue waters in Biscayne Bay, and laid back sidewalk cafes, art galleries, boutiques, and jumpin’ bars at night.
Every day of the week in Coconut Grove is special, but Saturdays are more so. There are first and fourth Saturday, when there’s music, food, fun tours, and more to see and do. Tuesday and Thursday are good days to check out free yoga in the park. Of course, this is after you’ve watched Heat power forward Derek Jones, Jr. take on Magic power forward Jonathan Isaac at the game.
If you can stay with us in Miami luxury rentals for longer than just to see the game, then iCoconutGrove has lots more to show you in Coconut Grove and in the South Florida area. Things like the history of the neighborhood with its farming beginnings to its Naval Air Station in WW1 to its famous writers, artists, and political figures throughout its history.
Tours of all types using all kinds of conveyances are available to the curious and the interested. Do you see those boats riding the turquoise waters out your vacation rental window? Some of them take visitors on tours of things like seeing the city from the water, seeing the homes of the stars and the millionaires, as well as many beautiful little islands. Oh, yes, don’t forget alligator tours.
The beach is always a fun vacation, even for those who live on or near the water. Miami Beach’s white sands and blue waters are a beautiful sight. However, if you’d like to play on more white sand, then Key West is right down the road. Key West, too, is full of history, full of famous people who’ve visited or stayed there, and full of water-related things to do and see like glass bottomed boat tours.
Coconut Grove Food And Drink
While you’ve a kitchen in your Miami short term rentals, it would be a shame to return home without sampling the widely varied cuisines in Miami. People come from around the world simply to eat Southern food. Of course, the traditional Southern cooking is available in many restaurants and deliciously revised by world-famous chefs.
For example, you’ll find traditional fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, home cooked collard greens, and biscuits at five star rated Yardbird Southern Table and Bar. Now, about that deliciously revised. Nothing says South better than ribs. Also five star rated Lulu in the Grove does lamb ribs with a sweet and hot rub you won’t believe. Looking for jambalaya? Lulu’s does it with bow tie pasta.
Of course, if you just want to grab a burger on the way back from checking out Heat point guard Goran Dragic going up against Magic point guard Michael Carter Williams, then drop into the simply exquisite GreenStreet. Sylvano’s burgers are one of those deliciously revised things featuring goat cheese, caramelized onions, and dijonnaise on his Impossible Veggie Burger, Cheeseburger, and Lamburger.
Of course, Lulu in the Grove and GreenStreet offer cocktails and other drinks, so try them all. But that isn’t the only thing to drink in Coconut Grove. Try Palma Juice for juice and smoothies. Check out Pasion del Cielo Coffee for coffee you make from your own beans as well as tea after the game.
