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.
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!
Couldn't have been easier to check in and Mary Jo was very accommodating with my schedule of late night arrival and early morning departure. Blackboard with my name on it greeted me on arrival.
We enjoyed our stay in Mary Jo's apartment! It was clean and comfortable. We didn't meet Mary Joe but her daughter was very nice and offered to answer any questions we might have. The pool was so pretty and right outside the door to the apartment! The jacuzzi was and added bonus. We loved relaxing in it after a long day at the beach! There is a super cute little dog and a sweet kitty there also! It is a perfect apartment to stay in!
I stayed this house for 2 nights. cozy and really comfortable. So I and my friend even didn't want to leave this home on the last night. I did city tour during the day and it was really tired. But this house is perfect to take a rest. The best thing is there was the pool right in front of the home. So I swam during the night. I only met her daughter and she was so nice as well. And there're three adorable pets, 2 cats and 1 dog. I only stayed for 2 nights but definitely, it was one of my best places from Airbnb.
We loved staying with Mary Jo, even though we never had the opportunity to meet her! The room was perfect for two and we loved everything about the garden! If we ever go back to Miami again we will definitely try to stay there again!
Nice and relaxing gateway! Everything was like we expected. The room was spacious, nicely decorated, clean and well equipped. The best part for us was the outdoor space!!!! We really enjoyed the backyard and the pool. The yard is beautifully decorated with gorgeous flowers, trees, eclectic furniture, and all kind of smart gadgets… Very impressive watering system! Thank You Mary Jo and Marlene.
Mary Jo was very pro-active especially on such short notice. She was very detailed in her explanation of how to access the room. The room was very nice overlooking the pool.
