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.
Like always everything is perfect with Mary Jo ! I recommend that room !
Really good decoration !
Mary Jo was very welcoming. She stayed in contact with me through e-mail and text before and during my stay. She had a friendly welcome sign with my name outside my door and she even invited me and my son to join her family for a cookout the night we arrived.
Mary's room and the lovely pool is perfect. They keep everything's tidy and cozy. It's a great experience to live in Mary Jo's house. Marlyn also is very friendly and nice. Thank you for offering us such a perfect house!
PS: the brownie is reaaaaally delicious!
I never got to meet Mary Jo unfortunately but she did a great job at making us feel welcome. The place was very nice, clean and exactly as advertised. I appreciated how well stocked it was with everything we needed!
The hosts welcomed us even before we arrived enticing us to enjoy the pool due to the extraordinary hot day. After our arrival we were welcomed warmly even by their mascot Milo who was a delight during our vacation. We were invited to enjoy a REAL sit down family dinner on Sunday which was EXTRAORDINARY! The rest of the family made us feel like family and we were blessed to celebrate life with them. We look forward to returning and will recommend this home as one where you may be private if you wish privacy or friendship if you desire friendship. It's a lovely neighborhood and plenty of good restaurants and shopping in the area. We learned that they have other rentals in different cities, we plan on enjoying every one! Thank you so much for your hospitality and new found friendship!
Wir waren für 2 Nächte Gäste in Mary Jo's Poolhaus und haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Den Pool und den Whirlpool durften wir zu jeder Zeit benutzen. Es war fast so als ob es unser eigenes Haus mit Garten war.
Mit Mary Jo war alles sehr unkompliziert und sie ist eine tolle Gastgeberin.
The residence was very clean and comfortable! The backyard is beautiful! I didn't get a chance to meet Mary Jo, but I appreciate the efforts she made to make her place welcoming!
