Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Located 2.5 miles from downtown Miami and in a decent area. Short walk to many local restaurants. I highly recommend donuts at Velvet Creme. Clean and compact, but plenty of room for 2. Parking was no problem, as was arrival and departure.

My friend and I needed to get out of town for a weekend, what better place then Florida?! We booked a flight and started looking into hotels, but I'm so glad we decided to rent from Gabriel instead! When it comes to lodging, the 3 most important things that I need when it comes to booking a place is location, cleanliness, and rates. This home covered all 3! The rates for this place was a great deal, and it was well worth every penny. The entry to the home was super cute, we had no problems getting in, the space was clean and organized, and it was comforting. It's a bit smaller than we expected, but it worked for the two of us. Coming home to an actual home with things where you left them (even when your clothes should probably be hung up rather then thrown across the bed cause you couldn't decide what to wear), and having that "I'm home" feeling, is very comforting. Not one that I get often at hotel. Location, awesome. We were within walking distance from Little Havana, so that was great, lots of really good culture and food there! Ubering anywhere was super easy, we were pretty close to downtown Miami and everywhere else we needed to be, so the rates were never above $10-$15. Gabriel was very responsive and was very helpful to us, he even supplied us with lots of great information on things to do nearby, great restaurants, and even offered us discounts for a rental car if needed. We flew in on a redeye, so we didn't get to the house until around 3:30am, which he was very understanding about, and still came to meet us when we woke up. Customer service can make or break your experience anywhere, I'm glad that we were giving great customer service here, it made it all worth while. All and all, it was a great experience, and a great weekend away, and when I go back to Miami, I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Gabriel for your hospitality, we wish you and Erick well!

Such a lovely and comfortable place!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I absolutely loved our stay here. Small place but perfect for two! The cottage was lovely just as it looks in pictures, super cute!!Place was very clean as well! Our host was Spectacular! We met the same night I checked in spoke with him for a couple of min, he was telling us about the great things Miami has to offer! We had privacy which was very important to us. Place also has a small porch so great for just hanging around! Had such a comfortable and relaxing time in the home! Definitely will recommend to anyone visiting the area!

Great little spot

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located and was perfect for all we need to do over the weekend. Plenty of FREE parking available for our rental car and Uber/Lyft was readily available for those moments we didn't want to drive. Kitchen/living space is small but the bathroom is large and the bed was comfortable. Gabriel lives right next door if there are any issues. Quiet, safe neighborhood in Little Havana with plenty of food, gas, shops like CVS and Dollar Tree in walking distance. Everything was great and the price was right. We would definitely stay here again.

From a Cuban with love...

  • 5 of 5

Even after a devastating hurricane this place felt like a tropical paradise. Did you know that he has a mango tree right outside? I can’t wait until that tree matures and gives mangoes. The place is exactly what we needed, clean, cozy and just big enough for a couple. The atmosphere itself makes you want to hold your love one and enjoy all the wonderful experiences Little Havana has to offer. I definitely felt like I was back in Cuba. I don’t care what other rating system they use out there, this place gets the “Authentic Cuban Experience” seal of approval. The host, Gabriel, added to the experience making me feel like we own the place and he was just a wonderful helpful neighbor. Part of my routine was to walk to the nearby supermarket and get a, freshly made just for me, Cuban coffee and milk called “Cortadito” and awesome Cuban pastry to bring it to my Thai Princess while she was getting ready. The cost would be less than $2 dollars. The place is four blocks away, I love walking and it is good exercise so I don’t have to hold back when eating the super cheap Cuban food of the area. Yes the studio has a coffee maker but you can’t duplicate that coffee.

We took an Uber to the heart of downtown Metro-Rail station in Government Center and it was between $6 to $8 dollars. Then there, at the metro station, we bought bus daily passes for about $5 dollars for one entire day, you can get in any of the public transport including the rail and go anywhere you want walking or by bus. My point is that the experience we had thanks to this place and the host was priceless and yet you could choose to expend little money getting around and eating truly authentic Cuban food. Good luck trying to get me to book a hotel ever again!


Your Cuban friend, Dimitri.
