A cool, cozy guest house with a rustic aesthetic, 1 bedroom guest house with everything. A 15 minute walk to SoBe. and 10 minute walk to the beautiful beaches in a very quiet neighborhood.
Quaint and homey feeling. Will comfortably fit 2 people.******* I've added some furniture and decorations since the pictures were taken so its a little more comfortable feeling inside. Also, the house itself is at least 80 years old, so if you're expecting a brand new, luxury condo, you should probably book elsewhere. Treat this space like you're staying at a friend of a friends' house. Its not the Ritz, which also happens to be not too far away..
Parking included, pet friendly, and also have a washer and dryer to use, and mini grill.
Interaction with Guests
I will most likely be home while the guests are here, little to no interaction would be preferred but I am willing to do anything to make the guests comfortable.
Quiet, not much traffic in front of the house, lots of friendly neighbors walking their dogs, very close to the beach, you can bike there in 4 minutes or so, and the convention center, lincoln rd, historic south beach,.
Parking included, otherwise its a super convenient place to stay, cab service is always 5 minutes away or less if you don't have a car.
Other Things to Note
I have a nintendo 64 with two controllers and ALOT of games if that suits anyones fancy for some late night fun i can include that in the guest house as well.
Pets are okay if potty trained, smoking (cigarettes) prohibited indoors. Basically, treat the house with respect as you would your own but have a party if you want im very relaxed and its YOUR vacation
Such a great location! You can really get a feel for Miami life while staying here. It was ready for us as advertised, very clean and I am so greatful to Joseph for squeezing us in to his busy schedule.
No frills but just right for us. Would recommend to anyone.
The place and the neighborhood were like announced, although some things could be better: the light in the kitchen ceiling was not working, however there was a floor lamp. We could not find a toaster or a kettle, to boil water for a tea. The place was not totally clean, but it was comfortable and quiet.
Joseph went above and beyond to make the stay work out, as he was booked back to back. The room was much larger than I expected! We had a full bathroom and huge bed and a Nintendo 64!!!! The neighborhood was perfect, had no problems getting around on foot. Only a 10 minute can ride to the airport.
Super séjour à miami ! Logement conforme aux attentes (même si je pensais avoir la maison entière et en fait guest house au fond de l'allée) dans un endroit très calme à 10/15 min de la plage. Idéal si vous avez une voiture. Merci encore Joseph !
Joey was a awesome host with great hospitality! He helped us out with every one of our requests and was really easy to get along with. He always responds quickly to messages. His cat Roy is also extremely friendly! (don't worry Roy isn't allowed in the guest house).
The neighborhood is safe and friendly, and the walk to the beach isn't too bad. The place is exactly as the listing says. You can't beat having a private guest house with a kitchen, access to laundry, and a 15 minute walk to the beach for the price!
We will definitely come again!
Like many others have already stated in their reviews, this place is great. It was clean, spaceous and private. Located in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to the beach. I would definitely stay here again.
Joseph is a great host too. He always was quick to respond to all of my messages, took me to a bar with his friend on my first night and did me a huge favor the second day (it's not that important what exactly, just keep in mind that it was not a trivial thing).
When during my stay I jokingly told him the place could use some more cutlery, he went out the next day and bought some!
Thanks so much for the hospitality Joseph!
Joseph is an excellent host and his place is just as described on the listing: comfortable, spacious, great location!
Joseph responded quickly to my messages and he was incredibly flexible.
We already told him that when we go back to Miami Beach, we'd love to stay at his place again!
I grew up in rural Illinois, 40 miles east of St Louis. I have lived in Miami Beach for 5 years now and I am very down to earth and a super chill guy. I am 24 years old and a student. I have two chocolate Pointer twin dogs. I major in English Ed and Literature. I do a lot of creative writing as well, and the occasional light reading I am very easy going, awesome sense of humor and all around a very nice and caring person. I play drums, and love music, mostly anything with a beat. I also enjoy movies, some of my personal favorites are Mrs. Doubtfire, Jurassic Park, Shaun of the Dead and The Great Outdoors. and video games. I am very athletic and go running a lot, ice skate and try to play sports when there's time. I love South Park, Family Guy, Jon Stewart and anything on HBO as far as series go, I like to watch Kitchen Nightmares a lot also, I can't get enough of Gordon's insults.
I don't really have a life motto, but basically i never take anything too serious, because life is too short to get mad or upset for something stupid. I like to go out to bars around the area or go to the beach and drink every so often.
