The Village is incorporated, as such the incorporation is designated as a Bird Sanctuary. It is only one sq mile, with a park at the roughly. Streets are tree lined, many with medians. We don't have sidewalks and do have a minimal speed limit and plenty of stop signs, so a walk through our streets or medians is never a problem. This is an older community mostly built in the 20's, 30's ,40's - 50's with a variety of home styles. It's a unique eclectic community, near to everything Miami and Miami Beach have to offer...

Vicky was very helpful and accommodating. She even set up an air conditioner in my room because the central a/c wasn't reaching that room. This is a colorful homey place, with pets in a quiet North Miami neighborhood. Nothing fancy, but definitely comfortable and relaxed.
I had a great stay with Vicky! The room was nice and had everything I needed including a dresser and a desk. She was very welcoming and accommodating when I arrived late at night. She was also great during my entire stay, checking several times to make sure that I had everything I needed and making sure that I was enjoying myself (and loaning me a beach chair!).
Her home offers a great location since it's convenient to many points in northern Miami and is only a couple minutes from the interstate, too, so I definitely recommend Vicky and her home to anyone looking for a place in Miami!
Vicky and her daughter were wonderful. Their home cute and whimsical. As a woman traveling on my own I felt very safe there.
Viaggio di lavoro. Ho soggiornato nella casa di Vicky per 10 giorni. Tutto è andato bene, come mi ero immaginato leggendo anche le altre recensioni. La stanza era accogliente ed in generale la casa rispecchia le foto pubblicate nell'annuncio. Vicky, e sua figlia, sono state molto carine e gentili; mi hanno fornito informazioni utili per gli spostamenti in città. La zona dove si trova la casa si è dimostrata sicura, ma consiglio vivamente di noleggiare un auto o pensare di utilizzare il taxi per gli spostamenti. In generale ottima esperienza!
Vicky was a terrific host! She provided everything that I needed for my entire stay. Her home is conveniently located right off of Biscayne and about 15 minutes from downtown and SOBE. Her place was affordable, quiet, cozy and clean. Next time I travel to Miami, I know who I will be contacting. Thank you Vicky, for letting me stay in your home. I really enjoyed myself :)
Vicky is a lovely woman with a lovely home. She was very welcoming, including messaging me earlier in the day to make sure I was still on my way. The bedroom was clean, comfortable and safe. If you love animals, her menagerie of dogs, cats and parrot will entertain and enchant you.
