I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Gloria's house. It is very clean, cozy and conveniently located. Gloria always made sure everything's okay. She is a great person and is a great host. She respects your privacy but at the same time, is available/ open to have great conversations as well. I would come back and stay here again if I revisit Coral Gables.
Gloria made me feel right at home. The house is just like the pictures. Coral Gables is a great neighborhood. I live in Miami now and consider Gloria to be a part of my extended family. She is easy to talk to and has plenty of advice about the Miami area. Her cooking is outstanding if you decide to work out a meal plan with her. Highly recommended place to stay.
Gloria is so nice and warm-hearted. The house is well-designed and fully equipped. Highly recommended!
We can not really recommend to stay in this location.
The area is quite nice, but the place has definitely some issues that made it, at least for us, a not-so-pleasant stay.
Gloria rents out 2 of 3 bedrooms in her tiny house and has put a wooden wall in her dining room to create a third (!) chamber to rent out - wich makes the dining room a dark hole and the house packed with too many people. All guests have to share one claustrophobic bathroom (no other toilet in the house!) and deal with a shower that is either burning hot or cold. In her profile Gloria offers a kitchen and a garden, but you are not allowed to use the kitchen and also in the garden you are not really meant to be.
We think if you are looking for a place just to sleep and you are anyway out the whole day this could possibly work for you. If you are like us (traveling with our baby-daughter) looking for a place where you are welcome to spent time during the day this is not your place. Overall we did not get the feeling that Gloria really likes to have guests, for us she seemed more stressed about it.

Gloria was a great host. She does everything she can to make you feel welcome in her home.
Gloria was a fantastic host! I booked with very late notice and everything was prepared perfectly. Couldn't have been a better experience.
Gloria is simply amazing! She is extremely hospitable. She will help you out with any need you might have. She has a vast knowledge about the area. The house is about 100 feet from the Marriott, and since I am a 3 year diamond member at Hilton and Gold at Marriott (meaning that I frequently stay in places that are not my home) I can tell you that Gloria has a lot to offer over and beyond the nicer hotel chains. The room may be a bit smaller, and you will share a bathroom. But the experience will be much more of staying with family. Except, she will give you as much or as little space as you would like, and won't make you sit through her children's recitals, or ask you to buy chocolate. She is great, the place is very centrally located. Definitely, worth checking out.

About the Host, Gloria
I am a single woman. I am Chef, studied in France and Mexico but I do prepare great Peruvian Food as well. Had a restaurant for 15 years but now I dedicate myself to Painting on Canvas and Furniture Design. Live in a very cute home, and like to host students and nice people that come to Coral Gables area, where is safe and beautiful. I am very quite, clean and organize. Since I cook so well and I do have to cook every day I even offer to cook every night for my long term guests.( addicional charge to be discuss personally). My garden is full of flowers. A place to relax and enjoy mornings and late afternoons.
