  • Stayed in the Room with Private Entrance. It was really great staying at Ricardo's! And there was a private half bath, which was a pleasant surprise. :) Got a chance to meet Ricardo, and he's really nice and super attentive to any needs or questions you may have about the house or Miami itself. If I ever come back to Miami Beach, I'm definitely going to stay here again! :)

  • The listing was exactly as expected: a room with a private entrance - the surprise was the added private 1/2 bath and feeling of detachment from the rest of the house! Loved it! The location was at a perfect distance away from the bars/restaurants as to not experience too much food traffic, but close enough to Lincoln Ave/shopping! The villa is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac. I can safely say the listing was better than expected. Ricardo was very helpful in promoting events for my friends and I. I appreciated Ricardo's notes left around the house (due to construction-related issues). Many thanks!

  • Staying with Rico was the best choice we could have made! We were attending an expo at the convention center and it worked out perfectly. So easy to walk everywhere and the neighborhood was quiet, quaint and felt very safe. I even walked back from Whole Foods late at night without any worries.

    Rico was extremely friendly and easy to talk to. He collected and kept safe our packages we had sent for the show and went out of his way to keep me updated about their arrival. He even called a couple of his friends for biz connections for us!

    We stayed in the Underwear Suite and felt very at home. Everything was clean and just right.

  • Ricardo was a great host. I never met him, but his instructions were clear, and things were easy to find/do. THe place was clean and in a really great location (A better part of south beach). the bathroom is shared by multiple people but that was clear in the posting. It was clean. it was each to reach ricardo with questions as well.

    location wise this was great. the streets around were quiet too.

  • Me and my boyfriend stayed with Ricardo in Miami for a week and liked the room. It needs a little updating but other than that is great. It was nice to have our own bathroom and entrance. He is helpful and takes care of averything you ask him. It was a great experience.
