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.
MaryJo's place is just as she presents it on the website - the room was well furnished & comfortable, very little sound from the rest of the house and AC was perfect. Her pool & patio area are nicely maintained, the pool is small & swim-able.
the neighborhood is about 30 min from central Miami, so traffic intensity is reduced - I highly recommend MaryJo's place, she welcomed us & we felt comfortable.
If I again go to this area would consider MaryJo's place as my top choice.
Our (email hidden) was wonderfull. It is a beautifull place with a nice swimming pool and you can go into the jacuzzi after a nice dip in the swimming pool to relaxe. We loved it.
The room was big enough for the three of us (two adults and a baby).
And to have our own acces to the room is nice to have. So you don't wake up somebody when you arrive late.
Mary-jo is a warm person and helpt us a lot with some difficulties we had. She arranged a pack and play for the baby and a carseat.
We recomment everybody to (email hidden)'s place.
We only stayed one night in Miami, and were happy to meet Mary Jo and family. Communication was really fast and easy, Mary Jo is great for tips and advices for travelling, and we really appreciated the friendly, easy going vibe. We would definitely go back and stay with them!
We had a wonderful experience staying with Mary Jo. She was incredibly warm and attentive. The room was immaculate, the garden was beautiful, and we especially enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi!
Beautiful location. Great amenities. Perfect space for one person or a couple. A bit far from Miami beach - but once you're there it's an oasis
Todo excelente en casa. Las instalaciones lindas y confortables, Mary siempre estuvo en contacto a través de ws y nos dejo a Altagracia una Manager muy comprometida con su trabajo. Gracias por todo!!
