Not what we expected

  • 1 of 5

This property was not what we were expecting. So much so that we departed a night early. The property description does not make it clear that this is a shared unit and that unfamiliar people come and go through the gate to access the second unit at the back of the house. It is one house divided by two interior doors into two units with an "in-law suite" in back. We were not aware that our valuables would need to be stored in the safe and that despite several attempts we would be unable lock it properly. The house instructions stated that, “…we are not responsible…for a guest’s refusal to use the safe.” From this statement, we came believe that theft is a concern. This was made more clear to us to by the barking of “trained attack dogs” next door. A sign on the adjacent property stated, "This property is guarded by trained attack dogs." In all of our travels, we have never seen a sign such as this.

This property may be a good choice for men traveling alone but the same is not true for a family with teenage girls. While I understand from emailing the owner that the shared nature of the unit was disclosed in the contract I hope he will consider adding to the property description that this is a shared unit in which others come and go through the gate, that it is necessary to keep valuables in a safe, and that trained attack dogs are next door.

We love to travel. We love experiencing other cultures and we are the opposite of high maintenance. We are not people who complain about the comfort of the beds or the temperature of the water. We hope this note will encourage the owner to revise the property description to more accurately reflect both the unit and the neighborhood.

Downtown Miami

  • 4 of 5

Overall it was a great stay. No major issues. The owner of the property was very prompt whenever I had any questions. Also, would recommend getting a vehicle for this location. It was very easy to get to I-95 and etc. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect, quintessential Miami house

  • 5 of 5

My two young sons and I stayed here for 4 days and absolutely fell in love with the area. We spent every morning and every evening on the beautiful porch. I would highly recommend staying here if you like to get a true feel for the city and the community, over staying in a cookie-cutter hotel. Definitely will return!!

Not close to city center.

  • 3 of 5

First off, the owner of the property made it right without any hassel, for that I do give 5 stars. But, the location was dirty and the beds were very uncomfortable. Needs light blocking blinds. It was a fairly quiet location, besides the people drinking out front at their cars. The property is for sale so maybe that's the reason for the disarray. Again I want to reiterate that the property owner did his best to fix the issue, one of which was an un-working toilet. The handyman who stays at the property did try to fix it...twice. There was pressure to return back to the location in the eve to fix it, which was a bit frustrating as this is our holiday. Overall, the location was close to restaurants, but it is not that close to the main city center. Definitely couldn't walk to it.

Greate Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The unit was perfect for two couples. It was a great value and had plenty of space for our group of four. You will find everything that is needed in the kitchen. South beach is 10 minutes away and there are lots of cuban restaurant and bar around. If you are looking for a great value and relaxed beach vacation while in Miami, this might be the place for you. We would definitely return!

Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples staying at the house for a vacation from yhe cold winter in RI. The house was bigger than I thought it was going to be which is always a good surprise. Upon arrival Raul was able to do a walk through with us of the house as well as explain anything and everything we needed to know. One of the areas we used most was the front porch, coming from snow to the sunny state of Florida we wanted to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible and that was a perfect spot for us to sit and talk. We ran into an incident because my husband touched the alarm buttons because it was makin a noise; which resulted in a louder noise at 3:30am that resulted in police officer showing up because the alarm company called them. We felt horrible about calling Raul at that time of night but he was very sensitive to the issue and resolved the problem by providing us with the code so it would turn off and coming over the next morning to make sure everything was ok so that it wouldn't happen again! (I felt horrible; but he was great!!) Somethings I would suggest would be to have a grill small in the backyard where guests would be able to grill it's just so beautiful to cook outside as well as having some beach chairs and a cooler that guests could bring with them to the beach. Overall it a good house; the location is wonderful if you have a car because there is a gate and if you don't have a car you can walk to supermarkets, restaurants, bars, etc.
