Excellent value for the money

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well equipped, good location, cheap, quick response from the owner. We didn't need more and enjoyed our stay.

Small things could be improved like it was difficult to clean the dishes as there was no place to dry them; the water of the shower could have been warmer; construction right in front of the door.

Highly recommended place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay. The hot water needs to be run for a few minutes so it can get hot. The construction is going and does not interfere with the stay, is totally independent. Thank you again,

Great experience overall! The property is very private, well kept with room for parking on the property. Ileana and family were extremely responsive and helpful with any needs. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for lodging in the area. 5 stars!

The property was just what we needed for our stay

  • 5 of 5

The room was perfect for what we needed for a 2 day stay in Miami. Danny was so nice to answer all questions that we had, and the room was nice and clean. Thank you so much!

Great space for a quick weekend getaway....

  • 4 of 5

When researching properties for our weekend getaway, we did not want to spend a lot on accommodations as we would spend quite a bit of time away from the unit. Finding this gem was exactly what we needed.

It's located in close proximity to Calle Ocho, a short drive to the beach and great restaurants. Working in the travel industry for over 20 years, I found the booking process to be quick and efficient. Any communication or feedback needed prior to arrival, Ileana was fast in responding. This was greatly appreciated.

The unit was clean and the air conditioner worked perfectly. A previous reviewer mentioned the water temperature so I kept that in mind when it was time to shower. Unfortunately the water did not get very hot. It was warm; bearable during the day, but a little uncomfortable in the evening.

There was also mention of construction from a previous guest and by the owners response, we assumed it was near the unit, not actually right in front of the unit. While the pictures here depict a beautiful tropical cottage from the outside, this is not what we experienced. We were shocked to see the large construction dumpster parked in the driveway. Since the dumpster was there, we were unable to park inside of the gate. Parking on the street was fairly easy, however we were greeted by a group of people each night. While I didn't necessarily fear for my life, it was uncomfortable having to ask them to move off of our vehicle and declining their advances to buy perfume.

The weekend all in all was awesome, however the construction was a downer. It would have been nice to have been notified, in advance, of where the construction was actually taking place. The dumpster was a turnoff and there were several nails protruding from the side of the house that could pose a danger to guests walking to the unit. Also, the boarded up windows and doors were unappealing, especially after dealing with the locals that hang in front of the unit.

Wishing you the best in your construction project!

Owner's Response: We are very sorry about the inconvenience of the next home repairs. It was only for a few days and everything is back to normal. We had make sure the water temperature has been reset to the very hot. The temperature was on the low side. We try to deliver an excellent accommodation. We offer very clean white linens and towels. We chose everything in white, this way the guest knows immediately that the place is immaculate cleaned. The neighborhood is typical of the city, and walkers are visiting the nearby famous 8th Street, and we are two (2) block from it, and nearby clubs and bars, is typical to encounter the people moving around from place to place. Our place is very good for the money. Great location to Mary Brickell Center, Wyndwood, and only 10 minutes to South Beach! Regards, Ileana

Bad neighborhood

  • 1 of 5

The room is fine, but I don't ever suggest staying in this neighborhood. Saw 2 escorts when we arrived right in front of the property (one was in her underwear, getting out of a client's car). A group was hanging out in front of the property until late. We were scared for our lives.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest: You contacted me on your second night of your three night reservation and requested to cancel the remainder of your reservation because you wanted to be in Miami Beach. I informed you that I cannot cancel your reservation and issue you a refund. You then asked about your security deposit to which I replied that "of course that will be refunded automatically by VRBO's system" (since I do not hold your security deposit) I find it odd that you made no mention of these very serious concerns, especially the fact that you feared for your very life! Since this is the first I am hearing about this I believe this is ploy you are using in order to obtain a refund for your stay. Please be honest with your experience as these reviews are taken seriously. This property is securely gated with gated parking and well lit. We have had no issues with prior guest as our reviews testify to this.
