**Please note I have more pics that I can send via email or text. They are too small and I could not upload to VRBO and the unit is currently occupied therefore I cannot go in and take pictures at this time. But happy to send more pictures over email or text.

The Village of El Portal is a picturesque and historic village in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The village name is derived from the Spanish word for the wooden gate that once stood at the entrance to the village. El Portal, a primarily residential community of single-family cottages and bungalows, was founded in 1937 and to this day includes prime examples of 1930’s and 1940’s South Florida architecture. The Village’s shaded streets and quiet traffic make the community a cool, green oasis, just minutes from downtown Miami. The sprawling live oaks, some more than 75 years old, provide a haven for our local wildlife. The village is barely a square mile and is bordered to the south by the Little River, where many of our wading birds find their sustenance. In addition to the native wildlife, several stunning exotic species call El Portal home, including proud wild peacocks and bright green iguanas. El Portal also plays host to one of South Florida’s most unique historic sites, an Indian Mound that was the first archaeological site to receive historic designation in Miami-Dade County. One of the county’s oldest churches, the Radar Memorial United Methodist Church, which was formed in 1923, also boasted an El Portal address. While preserving its heritage, El Portal has continued to make history, becoming the first community in the country to elect a Haitian American to its council in the 1990’s.

I have my own business and work from home. My background is in Hospitality worked 20+ years in Hotels & Resorts. I love to travel, food, wine, music and the arts. My favorite city in the world is Rome followed by NYC. I love meeting people and love hospitality which is why I decided to add our lovely Studio to VRBO. I love breaking bread with great wine. My motto is you only live the best of this life, travel the world and make a difference.

Vimari Roman purchased this studio in 2005

Why Vimari Roman chose Miami

The studio is located in our backyard in a two floor cottage. The studio is on the ground floor and we have another apartment that has been rented to a gentleman for about 5 years. We use to rent the studio long term and then had the opportunity to rent it on Airbnb for shorter rentals 30-180 days. We decided to put it on VRBO as its going to become available April 1, 2017 and figured VRBO guests may be looking at rentals further out. Please let us know if you have any questions. Look forward to hearing from you!
