About this listing
Come and enjoy our little piece of beach heaven!

Close to EVERYTHING!
I know you will not find a more down-to-earth, inviting host in Miami Beach! Not only is my home yours while you stay, but I also consider you new friends. I will do everything I can to make sure you have an amazing stay.
I work for World Crawl Miami which is a premier nightlife tour company, so I can get you free entry and free drinks to most of the clubs/bars in Miami. If your looking to party in South Beach, I'm your man!
The spacious apartment has a Queen-sized futon (sleeps up to 3), a huge LoveSac bean bag style bed (sleeps 1 or 2 cuddled up), a mini fold out sleeper sofa(sleeps 1) and a Queen-sized Air Mattress (sleeps up to 2) in one room that is our living room that we converted into a bedroom. A room divider is provided for added privacy and to separate your room from the rest of the house. You will be sharing the apartment with me during your stay but I sleep in a separate bedroom and am hardly home due to work. The full kitchen and bathroom are open to use as you please, so is the TV with DirectTV and Netflix. We also do have WIFI(1 guest stayed while I was out of town and couldn't figure it out so if I'm not home just message me for the info!)
The space has 2 things that most places don't have...FREE PARKING in front of our building on the street if you can find a space, and CENTRAL A/C to help you stay cool from the heat!
PLEASE NOTE: I work two jobs so I am gone from 6am until midnight most days and my house it booked 90% of the time so I am unable to clean up as much as I'd like. I do my very best but sometimes guests check out just before you might check in so please do not expect a spotless house! If you are a clean freak I would look elsewhere :)
All of the house is yours!
Interaction with Guests
I would love to hang out with you guys and show you around, take you out to party or play some board games/cards while we have some drinks and watch movies BUT if you want your privacy I can make sure to stay out of your way!
If you are looking to enjoy the nightlife that South Beach has to offer, I can get you some awesome deals to get into most of the clubs and bars with free drinks as well.
This is the PERFECT neighborhood! Very safe, in the heart of Miami Beach between South Beach and Surfside. Minutes from tons of restaurants, shops, and nightlife. Plus its right across from the ocean!
Bus Stop is right outside our place, and taxis are easy to flag down from our front door. We also will provide you with $20 worth of free rides from the transportation company Uber!
Other Things to Note
Our building is 1 of 800 separate Art Deco architectural structures on Miami Beach which is the world’s largest collection of this style of building. Please note our apartment was built in the early 1900's so it has many blemishes that give it character. Please don't expect a spotless house! :)
HAVE FUN! Don't worry about a thing while you are here, seriously! Help yourselves to any alcohol in the fridge, the only rule is, if you finish a bottle please replace it with something else! :)
50 inch TV, Surround Sound with access to my Netflix account on our Apple TV and DirectTV Satellite.
My stay with JoJo was absolutely wonderful. His place looks just like the pictures he provided. Location was beautiful and convenient! JoJo is one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He was courteous and super respectful of our privacy. I can't wait to go back for another visit!!
Had a blast with jojo! Wonderful host who helped us out when needed and got us into some pretty cool parties! He was a very nice and chilled guy (who is now more like a friend). The cat was very friendly and liked to be around people. Will definitely stay here again!
Jojo is a very easygoing and uncomplicated guy. He gave us a feeling that we are at home. He also gave us tips about good places to eat, drink and have a party :-).
There is a beautiful beach and a bus station near to the house.
We also had fun with Thula (?)- his sweet kitty ;-).
Where do I start from? I stayed at Jojo's place for one week with two friends of mine and as soon as we met him we understood that we would have gotten along well! He is the coolest guy ever, after 2 days it felt like we had been friends for life! We didn't know anyone in town and we wanted to make the most out of our vacation and I can totally tell that Jojo and his friends made the difference in our trip. We wanted to have fun and we did it, we went out every single night and he showed us all the coolest places, also the "local " ones. We enjoyed it so much thanks to him! Never felt like a tourist! I don't think our trip would have been the same without him. Me and my friends are really glad that we chose his apartment for our stay.His house is in a very good location, close to the beach and everything. I already miss him, his kitty cat Chula and the friends we made there. All awesome people. I will see you veeeeery soon Jojo! Thanks for everything!:)
JoJo was super easy to reach, communicate with, and eager to help. This is a no-frills crash pad with no attitude and very relaxed vibe.
The park and beach are a block away... reasonable dining options maybe 6-10 blocks away.
JoJo was an amazing host and a fun, outgoing person. A friend and I went down to Miami for a music festival and stayed with him from Thursday to Monday. The neighborhood is very beautiful and clean, with a lot of street parking. He lives on a very busy street that was the basic road to get to South Beach or anywhere else. It was about a 20 minute ride to downtown. JoJo left his wifi info posted and had flyers of bars and places to visit around town. The Futon he has is comfortable and the huge bean-bag looking like ball was also comfortable enough to sleep on. There was also a little clothes rack with hangers we were able to use, which was very nice and considerate of him. We got to meet a few of his friends which were also very nice people we got along with. Beware if you're allergic to cats though, he has an adorable cat that likes to cuddle. All in all, JoJo's Hippie House was definitely an amazing place to stay and I felt very comfortable being there.
Jojo was a great host! Very helpful and informative about the area, apartment was clean and comfy and the beach nearby was beautiful!! We had a great time :)
