“A Special Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

What a wonderful find. Our stay was different from any other B&B we had experienced. We so enjoyed the peaceful energy of the farm- we arrived tired and stressed and as Gabriele showed us around the stress melted away. We loved being amongst the lush tropical growth and walking around. The breakfasts were great and Gabriele was an excellent host. We love camping in the summer in Europe so staying in a wooden bungalow amongst the trees was the perfect experience for us. We were able to visit the southern section of the Everglades and saw abundant wildlife and we were able to explore the Keys during our stay. We would love to return and stay here again - it is a very special place.

Paradise Farms is a working organic, fruit, and edible flower farm. We had an absolutely great stay. Highlights included sampling fresh ripe starfruit from the trees and arugula right from the vegetable bed (it was past avocado time and mangos were just blooming...at different times of year, you'd have that instead) and drinking wine with fellow guests in the garden pavilion late into the night. Charming owner. Breakfast in the garden by the pool under the trees. A ton more memorable than chain hotels and motels, which is what you'll otherwise find in the area.

However, don't come here with wrong expectations. This is not a fancy boutique hotel. The two less expensive rooms are smack dab in the middle of the land. They're not large. And you either use a composting toilet or walk across the farm - with a flashlight - to the office to use the full bathroom. Entertainment is sitting outside under the stars (there is wifi).

If - like us - you're perfectly happy to camp while travelling, just didn't feel like schlepping your camping gear down from wherever you came from, and want to really experience outdoor and rural Florida, it's a wonderful place and one you'll remember. If you're looking for Miami Beach on the cheap, or a no-surprises anonymous hotel/motel room, this ain't it (though the more expensive room in the lower level of the house is less camping-like).

Room Tip: Zen is probably best room. The downstairs room in the house is the most conventional/boring.

While conveniently situated shooting distance from Miami this lush tropical setting takes you to a place that you would have to replicate by flying to Costa Rica

Be amazed by the inventive gardening , bee keeping , and mushroom caverns procreating a plethora of varieties

. Owner Gabriele knows all the treking paths, Tom will prepare you organic juices or smoothies. Breakfast with just picked fruits and farm made flower teas organic coffee and I could go on.

You Eco cabin is surrounded by a tropical wonderland if you want to de-stress and nurture body and soul come here

This is definitely for those of us seeking eco-friendly lodging off the beaten path: set in a sizeable organic farm (lush tropical green setting),

Paradise Farms walk the talk and strive to minimize their eco-impact.

The owners and employees are all very sweet and helpful. Breakfast is accompanied by fruits grown on the farm and the table is set next to their natural swiming pool (opens in springtime).

Paradise Farms are conveniently located approximately 5 miles from the Eastern Everglades National Parak Entrance and a great place to stop on the way to the Keys (though not set-up to host young children).

If you come and stay, make sure and eat at the Chefs on the Run restaurant in Homestead 320 SW Ave): it is run by an engaging young couple whose menu is made up of food based on locally sourced products.

Have eco-fun :-)
