Garden view room in this wonderful house setting. Bathroom is adjacent to bedroom (just outside of bedroom). Although the listing is under Sandra (me), you will be dealing with my daughter, Severine for all rentals.
IN THE THE HEART OF THE DESIGN DISTRICT IN THE HISTORICAL AREA IN MIAMI. CLOSE TO EVERYTHING! DOWNTOWN MIAMI, 10 MNS TO SOUTH BEACH. RESTAURANTS, ART GALLERIES... 12 MNS FROM THE MIAMI INTERNATIIONAL AIRPORT. The Design District is made up primarily of old low-rise warehouses and gallery spaces, that have been reconverted into retail spaces, art galleries, restaurants and cafés. The Design District is in the crossroads of many prominent Miami neighborhoods, with the artsy Wynwood neighborhood to the south, Little Haiti and the historic 1920s Buena Vista neighborhood to the north, and the wealthy Upper East Side neighborhoods to the east.

Severine was very accommodating to my needs and helping out when the smallest issues popped up. The place was lovely and a great neighborhood.
The house is big and confortable and Severine is always avaible, but unfortunetly the housekeeper don't mantain the house very well. I had some problems with insects in my room and the house is not so conserved, but as I said, Severine was kind and prompted to help everytime.
Julia, thanks for your review. Thank you for the kind words about my availability & willingness to help. It is certainly tough to maintain the house completely insect free in a humid & tropical place like Miami but we try to do everything we can to keep it clean. We appreciate the feedback and you are welcome back anytime.
It was a pleasure to stay 62 nights in this House. I was really well welcomed and made good friends. I will come back for sure. Thank you!
Buena Vista District has a very good neighboorhood, very quiet, you can walk around at night and enjoy the beautiful and natural vegetation. Located at 2nd (email hidden).
Its close to Design Destrict and Midtown District. You can walk easly to these places and find restaurants, shops, supermarkets (target), and bars. T-mobile and ATT too. It takes 10min walking.
Note that you will also find very good places to eat around the House @ 2nd AV.
This is one of the best locations in the city because its close to 36th Street.
From 36th ST @ NE 2nd AV you can get to Miami Beach (41th ST) very fast (take J line) and go to the beach. It takes 10min since you are in the Bus.
You can get to the Airport also taking the same "J line" on opposite way (west).
Taking "line J" or "line 36" going West you will get in Allapattah train Station, look how fast/close it (website hidden) 2nd AV is close to Biscayne Boulevard (US 1), the main road to get you to North or South. There you will find plenty of others bus lines.
Taking the bus at the corner of your House you can get very fast in Downtown, Government Center Station and OMNI station.
OMNI Station is the prefered way to get in South Beach because there you will find a lot of "lines".
Brickell is also a great place to go, for me its basically the financial District, where I was every Tuesday at 7pm to run with almost 200 street runners. But there you can find also a lot of bars and fun overnight.
If you want to do Tourism or Visit a lot of places for free, google it:
- Go Miami Card (I bought 3-day pack)
- Miami on the Cheap (every day you have things to do)
- Trolley (free), most close stop 2nd AV @ NE 41th ST
- Metromover (free), great for ride around Downtown, Brickell, OMNI, and Government Center Station.
- Bus, goes everywhere and stop every corner, Dolphin Mall, Aventura Mall, etc
- Train, goes from North to South mostly along the cost line. Also goes to the Airport. I did all the line.
There are two apps for your Smartphone that helps you a lot where you are on the road: download Miami Dade Transit and Miami Trolley.

BEAUTIFUL place and GREAT people!! Was more than the perfect place for my short Miami stay. Sandra and Michel were an amazing host, were super friendly and very receptive to any and all requests I made. The place is at the most convenient location imaginable as its like 5 mins away from Midtown Miami which has all the major stores. It is also within walkable distance of several restaurants that has great food for great price! Safe, convenient, and pretty place to stay!!! Will be staying here if I'm ever again in Miami.
