Brentwood Home Mirador Mattress Review
Our Brentwood Home Mirador mattress review highlights the new latex and microcoil hybrid in the 2016 mattress line that Brentwood Home just released. The Mirador is their luxury hybrid model in the new mattress lineup which we have slept on and give our feedback in this review.
Brentwood Home has set out to provide a higher quality of memory foam mattresses with their new 2016 line, which uses premium materials such as New Zealand wool and Belgian knit, custom handles, and elegant tufting.

All of these really set the new Brentwood Home mattresses, and especially the Mirador, above the vast majority of foam mattresses on the market today. In addition, all their products are hand made in their own manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
We also have reviewed their memory foam mattresses including the Sequoia, the Coronado, and the Sierra as well.
Construction and Materials
The Mirador is a 15″ latex, microcoil, and foam hybrid mattress mattress. It is comprised of the following layers:
- 2″ Comfort Layer – This layer is 2″ of latex designed to provide contouring support and help ensure cooling during sleep as well as pressure relief.
- 3″ Support Layer – This layer is 3″, containing 1353 individual microcoils. This layer helps provide responsive comfort and assists with motion isolation.
- 2″ Transition Layer – This layer is 2″ of natural latex that provides additional support and acts as a transition layer between the upper and lower layers of the mattress
- 2″ Cooling Layer – This layer is made up of 2″ of airlux ventilated foam that provides ventilation and airflow and enables a cooler sleeping environment.
- 6″ Support Layer – This layer is 6″ of therapeutic base foam that provides support for the mattress and deep compression support for the body during sleep.
The Mirador has a very nice exterior made of Belgian stretch knit as well as a New Zealand wool liner to provide an anti-microbial layer.
The cover of the Mirador is exceptionally nice, as it is on the other new Brentwood Home mattresses, but especially with their t0p-of-the-line model latex hybrid. The mattress has a soft Eurotop with tailored tweed sides, button-tufted upholstery, custom handles, and a very soft and luxurious cover featuring silk and cashmere.
Firmness & Support
The Mirador is the premium latex hybrid model in Brentwood Home’s latex hybrid mattress lineup. We rate it at a 6 out of 10 (10 being the firmest).
The Mirador felt a little on the softer side to me, as I am significantly heavier than Kaye, and I tend to press through the top comfort layers and feel more of the bouncier microsprings in the mattress.
In terms of support, the Brentwood Home Mirador mattress does a really good job of providing excellent support in all sleeping positions. As we are primarily side sleepers, we like mattresses that provide enough give in the top comfort layer to support our shoulders and hips, while also having the firmness if we switch to our stomachs and backs.
I felt good support in my shoulders and hips when sleeping on the Mirador mattress, although the top comfort layer and microcoils tended to make it a little softer feel for me than I usually like.
It is soft enough to be comfortable but still supportive where I didn’t sink too far down in the mattress, causing hip or shoulder pain which some softer mattresses tend to do.
Kaye, who likes firmer mattresses usually, felt the Mirador was also very supportive as well, which is often something we as a couple disagree on when both sleeping on a bed.
The micro coil construction and latex layers really provide a high degree of bounce and responsiveness with the Mirador, and the nice thick 15″ design really supports heavier sleepers such as myself quite well.
The Mirador is a very comfortable mattress, and the premium materials all lend themselves to accomplishing this. The Eurotop cover with the quilted layer of latex provides a very comfortable sleeping surface, and the latex and micro coil layers combine to really give a comfortable top surface, especially if you like soft, plush mattresses.
Both Kaye and I really like this mattress quite a bit, in that it is so much more far removed from the majority of the beds we have tested to date here at Memory Foam Talk.
The latex and micro coil spring design provides a high level of responsiveness and a degree of bounce to the mattress. This makes late night adult entertainment quite favorable 😉
Brentwood Home really sets themselves apart from the majority of “Bed-in-A-Box” mattresses by using such premium materials in their mattress such as the New Zealand Wool, Belgian Knit, silk, cashmere and the multiple latex, foam, and micro coil layers in its construction.
The Mirador is priced at a premium compared to many other mattresses on the market that it competes with, but it really delivers with high end materials, quality construction, and the fact that the mattress (and the other ones in the new line-up) is manufactured by hand at their own manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
The Mirador sleeps quite cool due to the multiple layers of latex, micro coils, ventilated Airlux foam, and wool / cashmere top cover.
We did not get the sticky sweaty feeling that some foam mattresses cause during the night, as the various technology used to keep the mattress cool does a good job at preventing heat buildup.
The fact that the mattress is largely not memory foam in the least bit also helps achieve a cooler nights sleep.
Sinkage & Motion Transfer
The Brentwood Home Mirador mattress does a decent job with sinkage and motion transfer, however due to the coil and latex design there was a decent amount of both. As we always preach, sinkage (and motion transfer) is largely weight dependent.
The fact that I (Andrew) weight around 230lbs tends to have a rather large bearing on the degree of sinkage I experience when sitting and lying on a mattress. Kaye, who is half my weight, experiences much less, naturally.
There was an average amount of sinkage for me with my 230lb weight, as I compressed the micro coils and tended to bounce a bit on the mattress when adjusting positions. This was a factor when both sitting upright as well as lying on the mattress when sleeping.
Edge support wasn’t too bad, but again – with my heavier weight, I compressed through the top comfort layer rather significantly. Less so for Kaye, who weighs half what I do.
When I slept closer to the edge of the Mirador, I got close to “rolling off” the edge, due to the comfort layer compressing under my weight. However, due to the thickness of this mattress (15″) , I did not sink to the foundation when sitting on the edge of the mattress.
As for motion transfer, the construction of the Mirador, with the bouncy latex and micro coil construction, caused a decent amount of motion transfer between both Kaye and myself when sleeping and changing positions during the night.
We did feel each other move around and get up during the night, as my heavier weight would move the mattress to a decent degree. This is more a function of the materials used and their high degree of response than any fault with the mattress per se.
Smell / Off-Gassing
The Brentwood Home Mirador gets high marks in this category for not having a noticeable smell upon opening the box.
Most foam mattresses experience a degree of off-gassing and odor from being compressed and packaged in plastic for shipping, but the Mirador differs from most in this regard by not having very much at all. High marks in this category.
Brentwood Home provides above the standard amount of customer service you can expect in a “Bed In A Box” online mattress retailer, by having a generous 25 year warranty and 120 night sleep trial. This includes:
- 120 Night Sleep Trial
- 25 Year Warranty
- Hand made in Los Angeles at their own facility
- No questions asked return policy
- Free Shipping
While this is higher than most of the mattresses we have reviewed, you really get your money’s worth with the degree of quality and materials used in the construction of this bed.
The Brentwood Home Mirador mattress is an exceptional mattress and one of the best ones that we have slept on out of all the ones we have reviewed to date.
Brentwood Home has done a great job with the Mirador as their top-of-the-line latex hybrid mattress, and it shows from the high quality construction and materials used in this great bed.
The comfort and support provided by the mattress’ design is excellent, providing a nice comfortable layer on top with the support needed for both my heavier weight and Kaye’s lighter weight.
The responsiveness and bounce provided by the latex and micro coil design makes for a comfortable yet supportive night sleep.
All in all, we feel the Mirador is one of the best latex hybrid mattresses on the market today and one of our favorites.
