Interaction with Guests
When I'm not traveling I work from home...time together varies based on what the guests prefers. We are happy to spend time together but also understand that some may prefer more privacy. We are happy either way. One note-we are also travelers and when we are not here we offer self check in/check out.
The neighborhood is residential-safe and quiet. We are walking distance to several restaurants. An easy bicycle or scooter ride to many restaurants/movies/shopping/banks. To get to tourist areas such as the Everglades, Keys, Miami Beach a car would be useful.
There's a bus route on the street directly behind the home. It can get you most places including the metro. If a taxi is required we would need to call for service. Budget and Avis are within walking distance. We have parking for one car-if more than one we would need to make arrangements. We are 16 miles from the Miami Airport, 22 from Miami Beach, 18 from southern everglades, 15 from Shark Valley, 23 miles from the keys and right in the middle of all those attraction.
Other Things to Note
There is a quirky thing with the shower. The Hot is cold and the cold is hot. I guess it was hooked up incorrectly....but shower does have both Hot and cold water :) We have a little Pomeranian who will love you.
We request no smoking in the home, outdoors is fine. No glass in the pool area-the room has plastic glassware available. The yard is yours to enjoy but no friends/visitors permitted. Thanks and happy travels.
Place was super convenient, clean, cute, and comfortable! Only bummer was that we didn't get to meet Mary Jo, (although her daughter was very nice and helpful!) annnd we didn't have time to enjoy the jacuzzi!! It was my very first Air B&B rental!
Bei unserer Ankunft war die Gastgeberin nicht da und trotzdem fühlte man sich gleich wie zuhause, das Zimmer ist hübsch, das Bett groß, der Pool gleich vor der Tür. Es gibt viele Sitzgelegenheiten, das Wetter war ein Traum und deshalb ergab sich erst abends die Gelegenheit, mit einem Glas Wein im Whirlpool zu sitzen. Dass jenseits der Hecke eine Straße ist, stört den tollen Gesamteindruck nicht. Von hier aus hat man viele Ausflugs-/Shoppingmöglichkeiten und wir empfehlen dieses Zimmer wirklich für die ersten Tage einer Rundreise. Ausgesprochen sympathische Gastgeber!
MaryJo's house is a wonderful place to stay. We actually tried out everything she is offering: we used the camping equipment to stay in the Keys (would recommended that to everyone!!) and also stayed in both rooms. Both rooms are really lovely and nice and clean. It is also great to have the pool and whirlpool just in front of your rooms as it can get really warm :-) MaryJo was very helpful with everything and gave us great tipps where to go and what to do. Thank you very much and we 'll definitely come back :-)
the host was very nice and friendly. the pictures reflect the room accurately.
Mary's place is the best b&b I have ever been in Miami. It's really like a paradise. I would like to stay here without going to anywhere next time. The room is very clean. There are a lot of books you can read easily in the room. We have our own separate bathroom. It's easy to walk into the garden and swim in the pool. The neighbors are very safe. Mary is definitely an excellent host!
Mary Jo was a wonderful host. We arrived later than expected because of car trouble, but she greeted us in the yard and made us feel at home. The space is just as advertised and the bed is very comfortable. The hot tub under the stars was incredible and we wish our stay hadn't been so short. Thanks Mary Jo!
