About Ines Cortes
I was born in Bogota, Colombia and I have been living in the states, specifically Miami, for the last 30 years. I went to law school in Colombia but early on I decided to abandon law and dedicated myself to different creative projects. I have traveled to India, Africa, Mexico, Guatemala. Nepal and Cambodia among others. I love beautiful things, color, kindness, honor and friendship. I love being a VRBO host. I know a little about Miami and share that knowledge gladly with my guests.
Ines Cortes purchased this House in 2002
Why Ines Cortes chose East Little Havana
When I saw this home for the first time I realized the house had chosen me. We were bound by my love for old architecture, Florida pine floors, crown moldings a floor plan that was not an open plan and, oh my god, the lime green bathroom tiles. I liked the neighborhood and the way the house sat on the lot with 2 cypress trees side by side. She looked like an elegant girl going to her first ball. Through the years the house has changed but the essence is the same. Because I love color, the house is no longer white/white, because I love plants and flowers, butterflies and birds, I planted and planted again and again, shrubs, flowers, bamboo trees. Some grew, some did not but I filled the garden with green.
What makes this House unique
I fell in love with the tile on the porch and you will to ,( just wait and see) the arches, the mango tree, the long green entrance by the side of the house, the small and delightful back yard and the great front porch.

A nice place & only half a block from Marlins Park! Enjoy your time before & after the game instead of fighting traffic. Owner on site & happy to give ideas for restaurants & other sites!
excellent short visit
Ines is a fantastic hostess who provided insight into the local attractions and restaurants. The property is heritage style which suited our taste. The light breakfast was perfect to start a days adventure in Miami
Thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad you had a good time in Miami and that we could be of help. Our success is only due to guests like you: kind, independent, accommodating and charming.

Bless you Ines and thank you again for opening your home to us
Norah, thank you so much for your comments. It was great to know you and your husband. Your constant smile and lightness of spirit was inspiring a filled the house with happiness. I hope you come back to stay longer with us.
This is a great place to stay in Miami. Ines is very receptive and treats you like family. This rental is a bedroom in her home with a shared bathroom down the hall. The bed is very comfortable and the house is centrally located in Little Havana, very close to the Marlin's baseball park. A short uber/lyft ride to major attractions. We would stay there again.
Thank you Tim, we enjoyed your stay. I am happy you had a good time in this city that I love. Come back!
Everything was amazing! Thank you very much Ines for useful advice and help.
The recommendation: the possibility to regulate the air conditioning in the guest rooms by the guests themselves.
Thank you very much for your hospitality.
Thank you Vicky, hope you had a great time at the wedding. Closing the AC. Vents is the most we can do since most houses in Miami have central Air. i am glad we could do that for you and help you with your allergies ... come back and please say hi yo that lovely daughter of yours .
Lovely place with a lovely host.
Me and my wife stayed at Ines' home (room with shared bath). This was the best experience I have ever had in a hosted home. Ines is very personable, and is passionate about hosting and making people feel at home.
Case in point..... We arrived on Christmas day at 9:30pm without car, on hungry tummy.... Everything nearby was closed. Ines jumped into action and got us to closest open drive thru. This is a rare experience of commitment and generosity than what we find in everyday life.
Other days, we had some really interesting discussions. She also advised on good ideas for food, activities, etc. She, in fact, did research and made collection of places we could go for food, knowing our interest in exploring Miami eateries.
Room and house is beautifully decorated, is clean and has a homely character, that is at heart of a BNB concept. No hotel can get you a warm, personal and homely stay, that enhances your cultural experience on a vacation/stay.
Thank you very much Ines for lovely and memorable stay in your home.
Thank you for your generous words. We love what we do, the city and the surrounding areas and it is a pleasure to share the knowldege with our Guests. So glad you enjoyed your vacation. Our purpose is for our guests to feel special and for them to find value in their decision to stay at our B & B.
