“House guests, like fish, begin to stink after three days,” is a Benjamin Franklin quote that we have all heard. It is so true: it is hard to have other people in your home, even when you actually want those “other people” around! Take, for example, a live-in housekeeper or nanny. This situation is so common here in Miami, and I know that my life would be more difficult without my nanny. However, I do not necessarily want to spend my every waking moment at home with her! Fortunately for me, I have a guest house in which she resides.
I have to say that I absolutely adore having a separate guest house, as do many of my friends and neighbors. Not only are they excellent for a live-in, but they are also fabulous for housing in-laws, older kids, or even for their intended users – house guests.
If you have come to realize that the “other people” in your home need their own space, then check out my two fabulous listings with separate guest cottages.
4100 Palmarito Street is a lovely 4/3 main house with a very private 1/1 guest cottage. The cottage has a living room, kitchenette, large bedroom, bathroom, and even its own washer and dryer. With a covered, private entrance and lovely patio area, it is the perfect setup. 4100palmarito.com
622 Velarde Avenue is an old Spanish house with its guest quarters behind the sparkling pool. It has a studio-style layout with an open kitchen, updated bathroom, and lots of storage. 622velarde.com
I am focusing here on the guest houses, but the main structures at both of these Gables listings are utterly divine. As soon as you are ready to get the “other people” out from under your feet let me know because I would love to show you either one or both of these properties.
