Interaction with Guests
I INTERACT WITH THEM ALL THE TIME AND I AM IN TUNE WITH THEIR NEEDS IN MY HOME AND IN MIAMI.
MY NEIGHBORHOOD IS SAFE TO WALK AND JOG AND THERE ARE MOM'S WITH THEIR BABIES AND OLDER PEOPLE AND WE SAY HELLO TO EACH OTHER . IT IS A LOVELY AND SHADED HISTORICAL NEIGHBORHOOD NESTLED BETWEEN DOWNTOWN MIAMI AND LITTLE HAVANA.
MY ONLY HOUSE RULE IS THAT ALL WINDOWS AND DOORS MUST REMAIN CLOSED AT ALL TIMES BECAUSE OF THE AIR CONDITIONING UNIT WHICH IS CENTRALIZED. AFTER ALL, WE DO LIVE IN TROPICAL SOUTH FLORIDA. MY AIR CONDITIONER COMES ON ONLY IF IT IS OVER 78 DEGREES, WHICH REALLY MEANS IT'S VERY HOT OUTSIDE. I PROMISE THAT YOU WILL FEEL VERY CONFORTABLE.
ALSO, I DO NOT ALLOW ANY OF MY PETS IN THE ROOMS.
Uns hat die Unterkunft sehr gefallen. Bei der Ankunft hat sich Maria Zeit für uns genommen und uns sehr viele hilfreiche Tipps zu Miami gegeben. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und das Bett gemütlich. Maria war auf anhieb sympathisch und behandelte uns wie Freunde. Haben uns richtig wohlgefühlt.
Maria Luisa was a superb host, and yes, a terrific tour guide! She has such pride and a love for where she lives and is incredibly knowledgeable. Listen to her tips! She gave me a tour through the Wynwood arts area of Miami full of amazing graffiti murals and we had a grand time!
Her house is immaculate--she cleans it daily and has a housekeeper. It is also full of whimsical charm, as she states--she has traveled the world extensively and has wonderful little knickknacks from her travels and the travels of her friends.
I loved staying in the Library Room--so many great reads--well read, smart, funny woman and excellent host. Her pets are cute and the pool is terrific. This is the place to stay if you're coming to Miami.
María Luisa fue de lo más amable y accesible en todo el tiempo. No solo hizo que nos sintiéramos como en casa, sino que además nos llevó a conocer un poco el barrio y algunos puntos que consideró importante. Además de ello, nos recomendó lugares para ir que eran muy originales. Deja todo a su disposición y te anima a conocer más. María Luisa es una excelente persona, muy sincera y tu mejor opción si vas a conocer Miami.
We only stayed with Maria for a couple of days but very much appreciated her hospitality. She gave us a tour of her house and the neighbourhood which was very helpful. Thanks for looking after us Maria!
Great place and very good location near downtown. Maria is amazing, very welcoming, very helpful. The house is great too. The library room is very comfortable and it feels good in the company of all those books.
Talvez eu esteja até sendo repetitivo por aqui, mas Maria é umas das pessoas mais importantes e interessantes que conhecemos em nossas andanças pelo mundo. Ela é capaz de te mostrar uma cidade que nunca alcançaríamos estando em qualquer outro lugar. Não é exagero!
Além disso, a casa está sempre limpa e cheirosa. Os bichos são muito carinhosos e a vizinhança super tranquila (lugar muito seguro para estacionar os carros).
Recomendo muito a qualquer um a convivência com esta linda mulher, ainda que seja por poucos dias.
Te amamos Maria!!!!

Maria Luisa is an amazing host. She offered to drive us to and from the airport for only a small fee and threw in an extra tour of the neighborhood as well. She knows everything there is to know about her neighborhood and can point you in the best direction. Her house is absolutely beautiful and the area around it is very safe. Unfortunately, I was only there for a few days but I wish I never had to leave. Definitely recommend staying at Maria's. She is the sweetest host you'll find!
