Carlos is very welcoming and friendly. He takes great care of the guest house and promptly replied to any questions or issues I had. The room was clean and all the windows were nice, but it's off the kitchen so it can be a little bit noisy. Parking can be a bit tight, but it works.
Great experience overall. Carlos took the time to show me and another Airbnb guest a sushi place which I wouldn't have known and experienced great Japanese dining if not for his insistence that we would try it. The place was very comfortable and near everything I needed to be since I scuba dive. I recommend Carlos without hesitation to the Airbnb family. Great host, great place.
Carlos runs a really beautiful little guesthouse in a nice neighbourhood in Ft Lauderdale. The place was impeccably clean and really friendly. Backyard is beautiful, and the rooms are exactly as described. Getting in and out is really convenient and I would definitely recommend staying here.
Carlos is a great host. I arrived early and he let me leave my bags there while I went out exploring FL. I liked the fact that both the front door and room doors have codes you enter so no worry about losing keys.
The room was clean and had the bathroom just next door. I had a good night's sleep and also the chance to talk to other guests that were staying there.
The only thing is that as the house is in the northern suburbs getting around is more difficult if you don't have a car and are reliant on public transport. There is a bus stop a five min walk away which takes you to downtown but the buses aren't as frequent as other cities for some reason.
Carlos works hard to make this guest house accommodating and it really shows. Any household item you might wish you had is probably available. He is also very attentive about tidying up and making sure there's enough toilet paper and such.
Each room can be locked. There's a beautiful shady backyard with plenty of seating, and there's a power outlet and wireless available outside (and inside, of course). The bikes are a huge plus if you don't plan on having a car. You might meet interesting people from all over. I definitely recommend staying here.
This is the best kind of budget Airbnb. It was super clean, simple room in a quiet perfect house. The host Carlos was kind and wonderful. I'd recommend this place to anyone happy to share a house with a few people but who wants a nice little room to themselves.
Wonderful guy, good location, clean house, friendly guests. This is a really nice place to stay.
