Dreaming of a summer vacation but not sure where to go yet? Miami may not be the first place you think of for a summer vacation, but it's one of the best times of the year to visit. Summertime offers more affordability and far fewer crowds, which means it's easier to get into world-class restaurants, traffic isn't as congested, and beaches are wide open.
The Grove Haus luxury residences in Coconut Grove offer the perfect setting for your Miami summer vacation. These newly constructed and modern units are within easy access to some of Miami's favorite local hot spots. Walk through the neighborhood's many gardens, visit the country's largest freshwater pool, and enjoy evening cocktails on your private terrace at Grove Haus.
1. Grove Haus Location
The Grove Haus residences are located right off US-1 in Coconut Grove, which makes for an easy drive to South Beach, Key Biscayne, or Downtown Miami. Plus, Coconut Grove is home to some of Miami's best restaurants. Bombay Darbar, The Spillover, Sapore di Mare, and Jaguar Ceviche are just a few of the top spots to grab a bite in the area. Take a stroll along the tree-lined streets of Coconut Grove and you'll find sidewalk cafes, shops, museums, and gardens.
2. The Venetian Pool
The Venetian Pool isn't your typical public pool. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this 820,0000-gallon pool was built out of a rock quarry in 1923 and is fed by natural spring water. The pool is filled using an underground aquifer and is drained daily. Come early as the Venetian Pool has a max capacity and can fill up on hot summer days. The Venetian Pool is about 10 minutes from Grove Haus.

Coconut Grove is known for its lush foliage and abundance of parks and gardens. Go on a self-guided tour of the Kampong National Tropical Botanical Garden, which features exotic plants and fruits from the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and Central and South Americas. The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a lavish Italian Estate in the heart of Miami. Featuring European gardens and antique artifacts, Vizcaya is elaborate and intricate.
Also, plan a visit to Peacock Park and neighboring Barnacle Historic State Park, which is a five-acre bayfront park home to the oldest house in its original location in Miami-Dade County. The home was built in 1891 and is a classic representation of Old Florida.
