We're no strangers to quirky places. Be they restaurants, towns, or hotels. But our stay in Homestead was more than we could ever have hoped for! The couple running this little slice of heaven go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. From the moment you pull onto their lovely little farm, you feel like you're an old family friend back for a visit after a long time away. It's like coming home to a place you never knew you even belonged.
We stayed in the 1955 "Honeymoon" Airstream Trailer and it was possibly the best night's sleep I had on our trip. When I booked this little gem, I had no idea what to expect. And did worry that the owners or location would maybe be too eclectic for even our taste for the unique. But it wasn't. The farm is beautiful. Fruits and vegetables overwhelm you with their scents, blooms, and flavors. Breakfast was utterly sublime, served up by our more than gracious hosts. A full buffet of fresh fruits and veggies picked that morning or the night before (we helped). Three varieties of bananas! And even got to sample new fruits we'd never tried like Mamey and Jackfruit! Personally, I couldn't stop shoving the fresh off the tree avocados into my mouth. Best I've ever had! And farm fresh eggs from their very own chickens are sure to make any breakfast utterly divine!
We didn't see much of Homestead. But hubby and I both agreed that any trip back to the Miami area would require us to bed down at this little slice of perfection. We even spent the following day listing off the couples and family members we like enough to invite down to stay for a week the next time we manage a trip to that area. If you're looking for peace and quiet and a way to get back to feeling human again, this is the place! The price is amazing for what you get to experience! We just can't wait to return!
Favorites: The pool was just darling. The Coke Machine loaded with beer was a hit with hubby. The fresh, organic, home grown breakfast couldn't be beat!

A truly unique eyperience
The place, the owners, the Airstreams and for those who are not into Glamping here are also near "brick & mortar" accomodations.
We - Party of 6 - have truly enjoyed our stay at this place
The owners are real extremely caring and are a great source for advice to further explorer the redlands.
Their "mi casa es tu casa" mentality made us feel like long awaited friends from abroad.
And the breakfast served is unbeatable (Mangos, pineapple and alike - fresh from the treue/bush)
We booked the place as homebase for our visits to attractions nearby but should have let more time to stay here, spend more time on-site - exploring the rich Flora, chatting with Natalie ad Greg, or simply hanging out by the pool.
Would definitely come back when around in Southern Florida.
