Great place. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. Although the cottage was a bit too crowded for 4 people, it was a great place. It was clean and cozy. Gabriel was very responsive and made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable.

Very polite and pleasant! Perfect for two people

  • 4 of 5

When my boyfriend and I first arrived, we had a few problems with unlocking the door but Gabriel came right over to help. He was very polite and helpful! Gave us PLENTY of ideas of places to go and things to do while on our trip. The house is beautiful. Everything is just a short drive away. The bed was beyond comfy for us. Everything was just perfect

Great location and well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

The pre-arrival information was comprehensive.

It was a few minutes walk to Calle Ocho, the Main Street in Little Havana which offered lots of choices of places to eat and drink and listen to music.

The kitchen was well equipped and the only suggestion I would make would be the following, which would be very welcome: salt and pepper, small bottle of cooking oil, some coffee/ tea bags and a small jug of milk to make a hot drink before going shopping for provisions.

This is quiet common in the UK.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure to host your stay. I don't supply eatables or personal taste items because it will put my rentals in a different regulation of business. We are currently fighting tooth and nail to keep vacation/Short Term rentals legal in Miami. The big Hotel industries and Politicians want to vanish ALL vacation/Short Term rentals with any excuse they can. I have a form on my Facebook page that all guests can sign and send to our local politicians to help us as a team keep Vacation/Short Term rentals open and provide travelers with affordable lodging. On this same note, any personal taste item that I provide will run the rates higher and many times end up tossed away. I rather pass the savings to my guests and have each individual obtain their personal taste items at any of our many 24 hour locations.
