The host were really friendly and welcoming when we arrived at their place late in the evening. The bedroom was big and we had our own bathroom close to the room which was really nice. I definitely recommend to stay with Alex and Maria.
We were greeted by Alex and Maria's daughter as they were not able to be there when we arrived. She was very welcoming however and gave us a great tour of their beautiful house. This was my first time using Airbnb and we only stayed for the night but everything was nice and went smoothly.
Alex and Maria were good hosts, they came to took us at the bus station and they make us comfortable in the lodgment. The description is in agreement with the pictures. It was a good stay.
Alex & Maria are very nice hosts, we had a super stay. Nice location, easy access to the beach. Wonderful backyard and we were offered a cold beer to enjoy. Good bedroom, clean towels. Thank you very much Alex & Maria.
Alex and Maria were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean and the bed was enormous! The house is perfectly located and near to downtown melbourne. We appreciated it, that we had our privacy.
Alex greeted me at the door, showed me the house with an amazing back porch lounge area, then offered me a beer. This house felt very much like an upscale hostel, quiet with a few people here and there, everyone friendly. My bedroom was clean and inviting, with a fresh towel and toiletries on the dresser for me. I was looking for a place to can stay when I surf on the East Coast, and I will be back here without a doubt. Thanks Alex and Maria!
Alex was a great host. I showed up later than forecasted Friday night (around midnight), but Alex was still cheery, asking about my weekend surf plans.
The Cespedes house is located in a quaint little neighborhood across the street from the river. The home is ornamental, yet homey and cozy. The room was very clean and private, and the bed is one of the most comfortable I've slept in.
I was out of the house by 6am to head to the beach, which was a short 5-10 minute drive.
I definitely recommend staying with Alex and Maria!
