  • Clarissa and her husband were very helpful. The apartment was as described providing everything we needed, with a beautiful setting on the bay. Hope to return to Miami soon and would stay at Clarissa's apartment again.

  • Sans les blattes, je cela aurait été presque parfait ! Rue plutôt calme, grand appartement très bien équipé, quartier résidentiel, résidence calme, supermarché accessible à pieds.

  • Cissa's place is beautiful. You just rent it and see. The house is big, spacious and well taken care of. It has everything you'll need, a lot of bed sheets and towels. The terrace is great, comfortable beds, a lot of storage room, two Big TVs. Oh! And let's not forget the pool just in front of the main door. We will definitely come back if we have another vacation with friends.

    Cissa'(email hidden) , very laidback and always available if you need to talk to her, thanks for everything :)

  • We had a really lovely time at Cissa's place. It is a sort of retro 1930s or 1940s condominium with a courtyard and swimming pool, backing up onto a waterway. The residents were friendly, but not overbearing, and the location was great. We walked to the beach one day and took a taxi to South Beach another. The beds were comfortable and the place was clean and nicely decorated. We will definitely consider coming back on our next trip to Florida.

  • Everything positive .She was really helpful and apartment looked exactly as on the pictures as well. Perfect place to stay - walking distance to beach (10-15min) and restaurants/shops, but surroundings really peaceful and quiet, so for us it was perfect location. Only tiny problem is parking in this area (she warned us about this forehand) specially after 8PM it was hard to find parking space. Can recommend the host and apartment to everyone - if we will visit Miami in the future, for sure we will book this condo again!

  • Cissa's husband Courtney went out of his way to be helpful. He gave us restaurant recommendations, printed our plane tickets, and allowed us to check out a bit late. We felt very welcomed by both Cissa and Courtney and really loved their place. The condo is in a nice location and is super cute.The only downside we had was loud construction in the morning (not their fault!), and I am not a huge fan of futons, which is what they have in the guest room. That is just a personal preference, and some people may prefer hard beds, but not great for me.

  • Great stay, very calm and safe in Cissa duplex ! We felt like home !
    Very good adress :)

My name is Clarissa Gudolle or Cissa ( my nickname since a little kid ), what can I say about me... I am first of all a proud mommy/step-mommy of three. Logan, Lilly and teenage Soleil are my life. I am also a daughter, sister, girlfriend, best-friend, a self motivated person, I love to travel and I love every single aspect life brings me these days. I was born in Brazil and come from a very sweet and loving family. I have been in America for quiet a while and i do love this country. Me and Courtney, my other half, have tried to turn our properties into a nice, cozy, elegant and modern place for you to stay. We will try to make you as comfortable as possible during your stay. If there is anything we can do to make your stay memorable, we will do it. Hope we can hear from you soon and make your time in my home memorable and unforgettable. Cissa & Court
