I enjoyed my stay here. Ricardo was very helpful, especially since my plane didn't land till late, so he was very accommodating in providing me entry and access at that hour. Was able to come and go as I pleased, since you will have your own set of keys to your place. Place was nice, clean, cozy and quiet. The art around the house was a pleasant surprise, as well. Would stay again. =)

Nuestra estancia en Villa Española no ha sido del todo gratificante. Las fotos que vimos no se corresponden con lo que nos encontramos en realidad. La habitación era un poco más pequeña y no tan confortable como se aprecia en las fotos y aunque a nosotros no nos afectaba, había una gotera en el techo de la cocina.
Por otrolado, la recepción y el trato con nuestro anfitrión ha sido escaso, dirigiéndose a nosotros siempre vía internet o mediante notas escritas por paredes, espejos, puertas y otros .Una de las notas situada en la pared de nuestra habitación, nos indica que debemos de recoger nuestras sábanas y toallas al finalizar la estancia, y hacer la cama para el siguiente huesped. En otra de ellas se disculpaba por la gotera situada en la cocina y pedía comprensión, sin indicio alguno de que aquello se fuese a arreglar.
A pesar de todo, considero que es un precio económico ante una situación privilegiada en Miami Beach. Si lo que realmente buscas es un alojamiento barato y que no requiera de desplazamiento, es tu sitio.
Como resultado final, la estancia en este lugar podría mejorar en trato y en servicio.
MI EXPERIENCIA TAMPOCO FUE GRATIFICANTE SE TE DIJO DE TRAER EL DINERO POR TU ESTACIONAMIENTO Y PENSASTE QUE LO IVA A INGNORAR CUANDO SE TE MANDARON MUCHOS MENSAJES PARA RECORDARTE TU PAGO OK.LAS FOTOS SON TAL Y CUAL COMO LAS QUE CIENTOS DE PERSONAS HAN VISTO Y FELIZMENTE HAN AGRADECIDO SU ESTADIA EN MI LUGAR (website hidden) NO LES AFECTABA LA GOTERA ENTONCES NO VEO EL MOTIVO DE SU QUEJA DAHHH? ALGUIEN DEJO LA VENTANA HABIERTA Y POR HUMEDAD GOTEABA PERO DESPUES DE UN PAR DE HORAS PARO . YO SOY UNA PERSONA QUE LE DOI PRIVACIDAD A TODAS LAS PERSONAS QUE SE ALOJAN EN MI PROPIEDAD A SI QUE VIA INTERNET Y POR NOTAS ES LA MEJOR MANERA DE COMUNICACION,.TODOS LOS HUESPEDES ABSOLUTAMENTE NO TIENEN PROBLEMA ALGUNO DE LIMPIAR SUS HABITACIONES Y DE RECOLECTAR EL DINERO DE DEPOSITO DE LIMPIEZA PERO TU SOLAMENTE TU FUISTE EL UNICO EN QUEJARTE .POR EL RESTO DE TUS COMENTARIOS SIMPLEMENTE NO TIENEN SENTIDO ALGUNO Y LO QUE TE PODRIA DECIRTE ES QUE TE BUSQUES EN TUS PROXIMAS VACACIONES UN LUGAR QUE TENGA ALFOMBRA ROJA Y ALGUIEN DE QUE TE LLEVE TUS MALETAS A TU HABITACION Y TE TOMEN FOTOS PARA QUE LAS PUBLIQUEN EN LA PORTADA DE LA REVISTA HOLA! DE ESA MANERAS ENCONTRARAS MEJORAS EN SERVICIOS Y EN HOSPITALIDA MUY BUENA SUERTE COMO RESULTADO FINAL A TODOS TUS ABSURDOS COMENTARIOS.GRACIAS.

Rico's place is in a fantastic area and on a very cool street. You can walk anywhere in 5 blocks (ocean, coffee, shopping, nightlife, dining) yet are far enough off the beaten track so you feel safe, and it's quiet. We enjoyed the backyard patio and liked having the kitchen so accessible to store refrigerator items, etc. The public space is pretty - love the crystal chandelier, wall sconces and all that original artwork. The only real difficulty we encountered were trying to get out of bed from floor height (old senior knees). If you have trouble with steep stairs or have large heavy suitcases you'll have a challenge staying on the second floor. The sheets were very very nice - appreciated that after a long day at the beach and some nightlife! A great place for the price.
excellent location, clean, functional accommodations at very reasonable price.
Ricardo is very friendly, flexible, an responsive to the needs of the guests. I highly recommned this palca an this host.

Wow! Thank you so much for everything Ricardo! You have been a gracious host to both of us. We felt so much at home at your place and the talks we had with you were interesting!
As for the place, you can't get better! It is situated a few minutes only from E-VE-RY-THING! Lincoln Av., Washington Av., Collins Av., Ocean Drive, ze beach, the clubs and everything else (including the StarbuckSSS). Felt very safe all day and all night walking till the weeeeee ours of the morning! Not a party place: just a good place to feel at home, away from all the fun madness of the town.
