The home was perfect for our 2 day trip in Miami. Walking distance to many restaurants. Would definitely consider staying at the house again!
On the positive side: We really enjoyed our vacation and were very thankful to Cynthia that she allowed us to bring our three dogs. The location was great and the kitchen well-stocked.
On the negative side, the next door neighbor was a crazy lady who harassed us a couple of times...it was amusing but a little disconcerting. There was only one bathroom with a toilet that worked somewhat intermittently. There was just barely enough space to park our two cars in the driveway because the owners car was also there. Lastly, the Airbnb site is poorly designed and has made it difficult for us to make an additional payment for the pets (not Cynthia's fault but annoying).
Craig and his family were very respectful though their three dogs had a minor incident with the neighbor. The bathroom was repaired shortly after Craig's visit and it is working beautifully! As for the parking-- parking at Casa Mangos is secure and typically allows three full size cars to park properly; Craig had a rather large vehicle. Craig and his family are welcome back to Casa Mangos anytime :)
I booked this property at the last minute, and I must say Cynthia was extremely accomodating. There were keys to the property in the lockbox awaiting my arrival. Me and (4) of my cousins were in the area for 4 days/3 nights and found the property much to our liking. Cynthia was even kind enough to extend the contents of her cupboards and icebox to us, minha casa é a sua casa! Overall, I would absolute stay again.
Everything went fantastic! The house really had a great vibe to it, really felt like a home. Being close to Coconut Grove was convenient in that we could walk to things and not worry about finding parking. The amenities in the house covered everything we needed and then some. Would recommend to anyone.
Cynthia and Casa Mangos were awesome! House was more than accommodating for myself and my 7 friends - tucked away in a great neighbourhood - the people in the area were very friendly and polite. Cynthia was terrific with responding to inquiries and really did more than her fair share with helping me settle the booking. I would definitely recommend Cynthia and her casa for anyone looking for a place to stay in Coconut Grove. Thanks Cynthia for everything.
We were a group of 4 staying for 9 nights & really enjoyed our stay - it was a real home from home with everything that we needed. Cynthia was a great host, being attentive to our needs with good communications. Everything was exactly as described & the location was brilliant, being centrally located to Coconut Grove, with everything within walking distance. We were pleasantly surprised just how quite & secluded the house was considering just how centrally located it is, it was lovely to return of an evening & relax in the back yard.
Would recommend it & look to return ourselves in the future!
