A member of Design Hotels. Set in Miami’s vibrant South of Fifth neighborhood, steps from the ocean yet perfectly removed from the area’s many tourists, this majestically transformed 1930s landmark Tudor cottage is a gamechanger in South Beach.
From the living room/lobby, which serves as both a relaxing retreat and a gathering point for locals, to a lobby café that becomes a lively night-time hangout with cocktails, to an artisanal design scheme that is rooted in styles of the past, the property embodies the home of an artist or writer living by the seashore.
More than just a hotel, the 26-room Life House South Beach is bent on fulfilling its mission to introduce guests to the works of local artists and to provide a window into an authentic South Beach experience. Here, guests enter a light-and-airy beach retreat rich in coastal details, such as whitewashed wood-plank walls and ceilings.
Each room has a uniquely playful layer of art, color, and texture that brings to mind the bedroom of a painter. When you are not taking in the surrounding South Beach Art Deco neighborhood from the hotel’s verdant garden patio or partaking in its morning and sunset yoga programs on the beach, you can avail yourself of Life House’s unique “members” program, featuring neighborhood ambassadors who offer an “in” to all the local happenings.
