This was our first experience of Airbnb and I was a little apprehensive of what to expect. However from the moment I booked Villa Medina the whole experience was faultless. Sergio was quick to make contact via email and always responded promptly to many requests! He was even kind enough to arrange a birthday cake for my husband. Unfortunately our journey to Miami was less than faultless meaning we landed 4 hours later than expected. We then got lost on the way from the airport (stupid sat nav couldn't cope with a road closure!) and Sergio very patiently guided us in even though it was gone midnight by this time. The Villa itself was perfect. A beautiful Oasis in a peaceful neighbourhood. Extremely well equipped with lovely personal touches. You can tell that this place has been lovingly created by Sergio and Susana. And what a special couple. I am just sorry that our time at Villa Medina was so brief as would have been lovely to get to know them better. We cannot recommend this accommodation more highly. Thank you so much for opening up your home Sergio and Susana.
Very pleasant stay. Hosts are very kind. Apartment and property are beautiful. I highly recommend it.
Sergio and Susana's cottage was awesome! It was such a cute place and so quiet and relaxing. The communication prior to our stay was great and Susana was nice enough to wait up late at night for me and my husband to arrive. Their place was perfect and in a great location. We would definitely love to stay there again!
We enjoyed the time in Miami at the Villa Medina a lot (like always).
It is a so nice neighbourhood, very friendley, quiet, and still close to the City and the nice Beach. Sergio and Susanna are the most wonderfull host. Thank you. I was so glad to be back again, and I will be back soon.
I had a perfect time staying at Sergio and Susana's Mediterranean Guest Cottage. This was my first time in Miami, and their cottage was exactly what I was looking for: authentic Spanish-style architecture from the 1920s, beautiful outdoor garden seating area, crisp, updated bath and kitchen, and a comfortable night's sleep! The location was fantastic too: I loved staying in an established neighborhood in walking distance to great restaurants and cafes. And only a 10 - 15 min drive to South Beach.
On top of that, Sergio and Susana couldn't be more friendly, accommodating, and interested in their guest's experience. If there was ever a request, they promptly and professionally took care of it. They were so nice!
I would fully recommend Sergio & Susana's gorgeous cottage in Miami!
The cottage was perfect for our weekend getaway in Miami. Quiet, centrally located, beautiful neighborhood. Everything was exactly as pictured. We'll definitely be staying again next visit to Miami.
Sergio and Susana were awesome hosts! There were there to greet us and to make sure that we felt like at home. The place was very tidy and even had a beautiful backyard. Our only regret is that we were not able to stay a few more days to discover the interesting neighbourhood. We would definitely return to this location. Thank you again!!
Pamela and I had a wonderful weekend at Sergio and Susana's. The cottage was spotless and well lit, and offers a sense of privacy and independence. A great space and great location. Highly recommended!
I've stayed at Sergio and Susana's Mediterranean style guest cottage on a couple of occasions and I always have a wonderful time there and wish I could have stayed longer. They are the most kind, polite, and caring hosts and I always feel so welcome and well taken care of when I stay with them. Their guest cottage is a gem -- spotlessly clean and so beautifully and stylishly decorated. It has a great atmosphere, like a seaside retreat, and it is set in a large tropical garden that is a tranquil and peaceful oasis from the excellent shops and restaurants just a block away. Sergio and Susana are amazing and I really cannot recommend their guest cottage highly enough. Thanks for everything Sergio and Susana:)!
We had a great in Sergio & Susana's guest house. The cottage is a lovely place including everything which is necessary for a short-term stay. We loved it there.
