Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Aqua Marine Cottage for 5 days was great! It was a little smaller than we expected for 3 of us, but it worked since we only spent time there in the evenings. Everything was clean, organized and had all the accommodations we needed. It was in a great location, central to everything we wanted to do. Gabriel was great in providing all the information we needed for a great stay. Just be sure to read the email he sends BEFORE you arrive--all your questions will be answered there. Overall great stay!

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this location over Thanksgiving holiday, 12/21-12/3. Being a Miami native, I knew the location was über-central to the beach, Coconut Grove and Coral Gables. The apartment is tastefully decorated with all the amenities you would need for a relaxing and fun-filled vacation. I appreciated the privacy of the location and ample parking spaces. Diego was very attentive and accommodating at my arrival and was easily accessible. I would definitely stay at this property for my future visits to my hometown.

Comfortable and very well located

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the second week of November 2016. It is a small but comfortable and very well maintained studio, tastefully decorated, located in the back of a property with 4 units in total. The available space is necessary for 2 people who will spend most of the day outside, and need a comfortable and clean place to rest. It is very well located in the Shenandoah area, near Little Havana, on a very nice and quiet street with free street parking.

The unit has all the necessary kitchen utensils, bed linen and towels, and is provided free of charge Beach towel, umbrella and a folding chair if you want to go to the beach.

The unit is strategically located, 3 miles from Brickell and 10 blocks from the I95 freeway, making it very simple to get anywhere in minutes. It is near the famous street 8, with all its shops, gas station, pharmacy and supermarket.

 The owner Gabriel is very friendly and is available for any need. The only problem was that the unit has another unit over the studio, if the neighbors who inhabit it are unscrupulous and badly educated, you hear annoying noises that disturb the sleep. The first 4 days were great, but then we had the bad fortune to have annoying neighbors who made all kinds of noises at night. It is a matter of luck, and we did not have it in this regard, despite which, we would return to stay at this property on a future trip.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review and for the eloquent way in which you expressed your concerns. I’m glad that you enjoyed your rental and I appologygse for the disturbance from the upstairs guests. Most of my guests are great decent people from all parts of the world. I have made friends with many of my guests and it gives me great pride and joy when I hear positive feedback from most of my guests. It does trouble me greatly when there is a bad guest who makes a nuisance to other guests or writes a bad review misleading other guests because they could not abide by the rules of common sense and behavioral etiquete. I send information on proper etiquete to every guest but common sense and ethical behavior is gift to those of us who have it, while those who don't are oblivious to their nuisance. Some people lack proper education and upbringing. We all work for a living and we know that every once in a while we encounter a rotten apple that makes havoc of anything good. Please accept my apologies and I assure you that this type of individuals are not frequent. I tried to refund their unused portion of their rental on the second day so that they could find another place, but they declined the offer. I spoke with them on a daily basis about keeping noise down and personal problems elsewhere. I pointed out while standing on the sidewalk that this is a very quiet neighborhood and that they must keep their personal issues to themselves. Unfortunately they managed to embarrase me with you and with anyone who reads about this issue. Rest assured that I am vigilant and address problems in the most diplomatic way.

A little piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay!! Super clean!

Very private and all the comforts of home!! The decor was so pretty and very detailed. The owner was at our disposal if we would have needed him. The location of the property was close to just about any attraction. It was so nice walking through the manicured garden as we entered the apartment!!

Will be back!!!

So much better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

Gabriel was there when we arrived and very nice to show us around. The apartment is very cute and exactly as it looks in the pictures. Very clean and cozy. I especially LOVED the mattress! Having the private outside was also very nice. There was everything you would need even to the umbrella we used. If we ever go back to Miami I will stay in one of his properties!

ALWAYS a delight!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our eighth stay with Gabriel! In those visits, we have stayed in three of his four units and although this one is our personal favorite, they are all just wonderful. The location in Coconut Grove is very centrally located and surprisingly quiet and serene. You can travel a few blocks and be in the mecca of Little Havana, visit Viscaya, museums, Key Biscayne and many other attractions, restaurants and shopping.

Each unit is very clean, well kept, and nicely appointed. We have never needed for anything and if we did, all we would have to do is ask. Gabriel is extremely pleasant, hospitable, and professional. Each and every time we return, we can see improvements he has or is making with the property. It is so refreshing to see a business owner investing back into his business and he does! Everything from new windows, new hvac units, electronic entries, updated paint and furnishings, etc. The spaces are cozy and homey, with comfortable beds, linens, housewares and furnishings.

If you are looking for a more intimate stay in Miami, (I'm not a personal fan of big hotels or chains, and prefer to support independent entrepreneurs), that is clean as a whistle, graciously hosted, and nicely priced, THIS IS IT!!! We will be back in September for visit number nine!
