First, let me sum up my review for the busy readers: This is an interesting option, but it is not a hotel and it is certainly not for everybody. That said, it can be quite charming...if you are in the mood for a very laid-back, down and dirty trip to Miami. The rooms are a series of unattached bungalows. These are about 20 years older than the city itself (founded around 1899). When I stayed, it was cold (between 70-50 F) and the walls afforded little warmth. However, they are not designed for sub070 temperatures and you are not likely to encounter them anyway. The rooms are decorated in a very sweet way. No little sculpture or scarf-as-window-tie seems to have been an afterthought. There are odd cabinets and shelves all over as well, which lends it a certain quaint charm. This is a farm, though, so water use is limited and the showers are not the best. Perhaps that is because there's an outdoor shower for guest use. There is also a main bungalow where you can keep coffee and milk in a communal refrigerator. The common bungalow is also pleasant, has a warm and inviting living room area and is a nice place to chat with other guests if you are so inclined.
This is a farm and it is situated in an area near Little Haiti that is not altogether wholesome. But it is a farm...meaning there are thousands of plant species burgeoning at every corner. There's a pig. There are ducks and chickens and an entire *gang* of very friendly dogs who wander in the wake of owner Tamara as she tends to various tasks around the premises. Tamara is very friendly, always up for a chat--long or short.
Now, the fact that it is a farm does make the setting kind of alternative and enchanting. However, if you are planning to enjoy the nightlife and have a series of urban events planned, this is not the place to be. It's a FARM! That means that although it is beautiful, there is plenty of dirt, animal run-ins etc. I suppose it is self-selecting. I enjoyed my stay--had I been there for fun rather than for business, I might have had a great time. As it was, it was despite being a farm that I enjoyed my stay.
