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.
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!!
I wish I could have stayed longer. The pool, jacuzzi, room all great. The decoration and furniture is awesome. Wish you good health and prosperity.
Mary Jos Heim ist traumhaft schön und das Zimmer super ausgestattet. Wir hatten leider beide nicht das Glück uns kennenzulernen da Mary Jo auf Geschäftsreise war aber es war alles vorbereitet und ihre Tochter hat uns empfangen.
Zimmer ist sehr sauber und mit allen wichtigen ausgestattet und die Tatsache das man einfach aus dem Zimmer geht und gleich am Pool ist, macht es sehr angenehm!
Zusammengefasst kann man dieses Appartment nur empfehlen! M
Kleiner Kritikpunkt ist der Straßenlärm aber auch daran gewöhnt man sich!
Vielen Dank Mary Jo!
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!
