Coral Gables house description

10 minutes by Metrorail from downtown Miami's financial & social center is super-safe and ever-trendy Coral Gables. Right on the MetroRail, we're five minutes from the station and Miami Airport, and we'll pick you up anytime - or anywhere in Miami! So. Beach? We'll drive you there, most days or nights (and pick you up - but we do charge for short, and for longer trips). The Gables has amazing restaurants (listed 203, Zagat rates 85), and terrific shopping a short walk to the new Merrick Park Village shopping center.

The Gables has 20 foreign consulates, hundreds of international corporate headquarters, and world-class restaurants. Beautiful environs, and a multi-lingual and charming, knowledgeable host provides fresh bread, free breakfast; free rice & beans most anytime of day, with some smart, respectful Asian college/grad school roommates. Warning: Have 2 great dogs; they will love you (but they're big, so be a fearless dog-lover!). Free WiFi; free laundry (we'll DO your laundry for $10/load); free breakfast; 24x7 keyless access.

We can usually pick you up at the airport, train or bus station or take you anywhere within 10 miles. We rent out good-quality mountain bikes for /day, and you can even leave your luggage here after leaving (/bag/day).

Simply....great company. Join us anytime. Friendly, fun, smart and pleasant. Your host is a Harvard college grad ('68...no, that's 1968, not 1868!), English major, happy to help those for whom English is a 2nd language. Very familiar with the logistics of American life...& glad to assist you in all ways! Good research and computer skills (ran 3 public companies over 20 years). Was for 20 years a professional musician ('cello - NYC/Manhattan School/Columbia Recording Artists).

Our 'small' bedroom is quite small, just big enough for a bed, a desk, and reasonable storage. Shared two-basin bath with tub and shower. Bed is twin-size, but super-comfy......mmmmm!.

The kitchen is available any time day or night; two big fridges for storing food (we'll drive you to the local supermarket and wait for you to shop) along with excellent cabinet space. The neighborhood is 100% ultra-safe. Sit with us in the quiet, bird-filled garden for a glass of wine or a beer (we'll stock both for you); hang around and talk; enjoy the Uverse/WiFi anytime, use our printers and computers if you don't bring one. It's simply a terrific place to stay, it's convenient, ever-available rides anywhere, and charming, smart folks who share a love of life and living, and invite you to come and have a wonderful time, regardless of length of stay. We look forward to being with you!

Here are sample comments from friends, our guests:

Adria: Eugene is a great, accommodating host! The room was clean and comfortable, in a nice quiet area but not too far from public transportation. Definitely a good place to stay!

Jade: Eugene is a friendly, welcoming and accommodating host. The room was clean, and he even offered breakfast. .

Stuart: Exceptionally gracious host who went beyond the call of duty to accommodate my recent short stay in Miami. I would highly recommend Eugene's home to anyone with south Florida travel plans. Very affordable, very clean, conveniently located

Joel: Eugene is a fantastic host and a stellar conversationalist. He made sure that my fiancée, a friend and I were always comfortable even after a last minute reservation. Eugene is also a great chef - be sure to talk him into cooking for you! :-)

Raimo: Eugene was a very gracious host, he was able to pick us up from the airport and we used his hospitality to get a ride to the mall to do our shopping. On top of that he made us breakfast twice! If you stay, ask for the bacon… he makes perfect bacon and it was from the microwave: my skepticism was brushed away! He has friendly dogs who are quite well behaved and give you a warm welcome.

Boris: The kindliness and care Eugene took with me was absolutely unexpected.

Elena: He is a great host!! prepares delicious breakfasts, bakes awesome bread, and cooks wonderful beans and rice, the house is nice and clean, he has four dogs which are really friendly and fun, Gene makes you feel comfortable and at home!! I would totally recommend to stay there.

Chris: There is really no need to stay directly in Miami or Miami Beach even if you don't have a car. If you stay in Gene's place, make sure you don't leave in the morning without one of his smoothies or a piece of his home-made herb bread. :-) I'll be back, that's for sure.

Xingyuan: This was a great option! Breakfast was delicious, Eugene was a personable host, and the proximity to the Metro Rail and short drive to get onto I-95 made the location itself quite convenient.
