Carlos once again exceeded my expectations. His house is kept in tip top shape, clean, and safe.
Carlos has made alot of upgrades to the house, especially when it comes to comfort and safety. There is now a digital code to get into the house, and to each individual room, which gives you an extra feeling of safety.
Carlos also makes each person feel at home. We had great discussions over the few days thaf I was there. I truly consider Carlos a friend, and will definitely stay there again. You will not find a better value ANY WHERE better in South Florida.
Our first airbnb experience. Went very well. Great host. Very clean and comfortable.

Carlos kümmert sich sehr um seine (website hidden) war sehr freundlich und hat uns beim beschaffen von Informationen auf seinem Computer sehr geholfen.Wir können seine Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
Carlos is a very pleasant person. The house is 3 miles from my favorite spot, north of Fort Lauderdale proper, a much quieter FL neighborhood. The house is extremely clean and organized and Carlos runs the house like a hostel. For the amount of guests (8 at the time) you wouldn't know by the absolute cleanliness and organization of the whole place. The house is 3 miles from my favorite spot in Lauderdale, a neighborhood a bit north from the business of Fort lauderdale.
A few setbacks that I hope serve as constructive criticism: the other guests or neighbors (not sure) were too loud, making it difficult to fall asleep. The bed is a bit soft and the room too small without a closet, which made for fitting my luggage and knapsack a bit difficult. There are only two bathrooms for the guests and they are outside of the room, but they were vacant when I needed them, although I only stayed for one night.
Carlos was a wonderful host, with a GREAT place to stay. This house is well open to a beautiful relaxing backyard and perfect for travelers. I enjoyed my stay and the ease of being in and out to the beach, bars, and other things I did during my stay. Carlos is also always willing to help out if you have any questions and is very accommodating. Certainly would stay again! Thanks, Carlos
Carlos was a wonderful host! We arrived after dark on New Year's Eve to find Carlos in the kitchen preparing to cook steaks for all the guests. We were not expecting such hospitality, but we had a wonderful time meeting folks from far away lands and even some visitors from Baltimore, near our home base ...
The accommodations were clean and comfy; easy to find, nice neighborhood, convenient location, etc. This was our first experience with airbnb and we may never go back to regular hotels. We met a bunch of really nice people with similar interests and goals in their travel plans.
We used the bikes and snorkling gear at the beach. The only problem we had was finding parking space at the beach. I should have asked Carlos about it earlier, because when I told him we had trouble parking, he told me about public parking that was near the beach. He also had good suggestions for restaurants nearby.
We'll stay here again when we return to south Florida!
