{Hyatt House Miami With Sweet Garden Residents}

Again we had a wonderful time at our favorite home away from home: Hyatt House Miami Airport
It is a huge hotel, actually apartment style guest rooms with a big tropical garden in the center and surrounding it.
The hotel is at the Blue Lagoon, a kind of lake that extends from behind the hotel.
At the parking lot even is a kind of canal that ends into the Blue Lagoon...
Below this post you find links from previous visits to this favorite Hyatt House; like finding a Muscovy Duck near the parking lot.
But this time we were in for a surprise or two...
Yep, this regal looking Peacock was walking around in the garden and on the patio that connects garden and other areas.
Photo is taken from our apartment down, overlooking the pool, on July 3rd.
We love their beds with the down duvet & pillows...
Near the patio outside of the pool area, we spotted two Peacoks!
And this sweet Kitty with 3-½ legs.
It really felt like being home with our own pets!
This kitty sat with us, under our table...
It was lucky as we did have some cat kibbles in the car! 
That made her bond with us right away after receiving some treats.
The two Peacocks were very tame as well but one was a lot fatter and also very bossy!
Love their plumage!
Have you ever stayed at a hotel with such exotic birds?

Hope you enjoyed our photos and thanks for your visit!

  1. Liebe Mariette,

    vielen Dank für deinen interessanten Post.

    Liebe Grüße

  2. Hope you had a lovely time in Florida Mariette! I enoyed browsing through your photo's. The hotel looks luxurious! I can imagine how you enjoy staying there. Sorry I haven't been around lately, but somehow I don't seem to get around sitting behind my computer working on my blog that much any more. 'The boyfriend' takes up a lot of time! :-)

    Have a lovely day!

  3. What a fabulous adventure!! I can't say I have stayed at a hotel with Peacocks ... but growing up in Portugal ... I remember being fascinated by peacocks in a park my nanny took me too. Seeing these brought back wonderful childhood memories. I have often thought about getting a couple for the country home .. but am afraid our Canadian winters would not be good for them. Thank you for the memories ... hugs to you both!!

  4. Such a beautiful and relaxing place to 'get away', my dear Mariette! I love your little visitors, too. Such a sweet little kitty. The peacocks have such pretty feathers and 'crowns' - so regal-looking. I would certainly enjoy that comfortable and cozy room, too. Sending hugs xo Karen

  5. Dearest Mariette,
    what a wonderful place ... so lovely with the Peacocks and the sweet little Kitty arround.
    Wishing you a wonderful and lovely week,
    sending Love and hugs and blessings, Claudia xo

  6. Het is leuk om de pauwen van zo dichtbij te observeren met al hun prachtige kleuren. Dat poesje ziet er zo lief uit, zielig dat ze maar drie pootjes heeft.

  7. Lieve Mariette ...
    ik ben wel zeker dat je genoten hebt van het verblijf in het hotel ..
    hier in de buurt hebben we ook een hyatt regency hotel ..die is ook prachtig ..
    heel veel liefs ..

  8. Funny the peacocks. Looks like a lovely hotel.

  9. Beautiful peacocks and adorable kitty! It's nice they are so relaxed and don't seem to mind each other. (Goro would be hunting peacocks!) How lovely you bonded with the kitty. It's always good to have some cat food with you, isn't it? I have cat food in my office drawer, just in case :-)

  10. Beautiful hotel Mariette. Loved the peacocks and the little kitten.

  11. Peacocks are pretty amazing, aren't they? I've not stayed at a hotel like this, but my daughter said there were penguins walking around at their hotel on Maui. She said it was so much fun to watch them.
    Hope both you and Pieter are doing well. Love, Deborah

  12. Ziet er leuk uit daar...en de laatste keer dat ik een gekleurde pauw van dichtbij zag is zeker 30 jaar geleden, misschien wel langer...een witte zagen we denk ik een jar of 5 geleden nog eens in de Keukenhof en in een open tuin in Limburg...ook prachtig, maar de kleuren van de 'blauwe'pauw vind ik zo mooi....Grappig dat ze het hekwerk in dezelfde kleur hebben geverfd als het water van het zwembad...

  13. Dearest Mariette.
    The peacock are beautiful most of time nobody no how much very bossy time The Peacock are not sports walking in the garden and other side too.
    Your photo taken with the lid opened for a better color.
    Spending you hugs back from both of you!
    Always helping me Thank you so much Mariette San!
    I will like to be back my golfing ...our weather's raining from the March still never stopped.

  14. Dear Mariette,
    How lucky! You saw such friendly peacocks and adorable cat! The bard has beautiful feather and pretty combs!
    I am sure you had a relaxing time in the beautiful hotel!

  15. Looks like a very nice place to spend a little time. We saw white peacocks in Mississippi a couple of years ago. I didn't realize the males roost in trees so that was funny to see.

  16. I haven's seen any peacocks for many years around where we live. You were lucky to be able to have them so close to you! And that poor little kitty was so sweet!!!
    I wish you a lovely new week, my dear Mariette!!!!

  17. A nice visit :-)

    Have a silent and healty weekend



Thanks for your visit and comment.
