We had an awesome stay at the suite. It was just as pictured on the website. Lots of little touches added to the suite to make for a great stay. Sergio and Susanna were very helpful and welcoming. Safe area to walk around and good suggestions of restaurants in the neighborhood. Lots of great sights to see in Miami. Enjoyed Little Havana, Wynwood Walls, Fairchild Botanical Gardens, Key West, South Beach, deep sea fishing, Everglades National Park. Favorite restaurant was Jaguar a Peruvian restaurant in Coconut Grove. The octopus was amazing.
sergio & susana were such a delight! they were so pleasant to deal with and made everything about our stay worry-free. the villa was gorgeous and surpassed our expectations. we wanted to stay another week! looking forward to returning soon...thanks s&s!
Susana & Sergio were hospitable, non-intrusive, polite and very easy to deal with. The communication was great. The place was extremely nice with exceptional interior and exterior design. Quiet and wealthy neighborhood. It was very helpful to have a list of recommended places - many questions were answered in seconds. We will definitely contact Medina's family before our next visit to Miami to see if the place is available.
The cottage and the hosts were wonderful. It was too bad my stay was so short !
Far exceeded my expectations.
We highly recommend Villa Medina. Sergio and Susana are the nicest people you can imagine!! The cottage is excellent and very cosy. The neighborhood is superb. Plenty of restaurants, buildings of architectural interest (phone number hidden)) along the way, close to everything. No wonder there are only good reviews for this special place.
This was our second stay at Sergio & Susana's and they are fantastic hosts, very warm and friendly and at the same time allowing you privacy and independent access to their guest cottage. The location is superb in a very vibrant up and coming neighborhood of Miami, with many restaurants, bars, markets, parks, and a short ride to Miami Beach. We will definitely return!
Our little family of three stayed at the Guest Cottage for two weeks over the Christmas and New Years holiday and we felt as if we living in a home away from home. As previous comments suggest, the cottage looks better in person than in the photos. Certainly a welcome surprise. Also to our surprise, we arrived to a fully equipped baby crib in the living room for our one-year-old daughter. We didn't even request or inquire about the crib, so this definitely qualifies as above and beyond the call of duty by our generous hosts. Another pleasant surprise was the newly remodeled kitchen, which was well-equipped and very modern.
In our particular experience, Sergio and Susana were out of town for the majority of our trip, but housesitter and all-around-great-guy Brian stepped in and helped us get acclimated to the house and the surrounding neighborhood. Thanks, Brian!
One of our favorite aspects of the cottage was the location. It is in very close proximity to plenty of fantastic restaurants on Biscayne Blvd.. Moshi Moshi, Blue Collar, Dogma, and Via Verde are all tremendous and we would highly recommend visiting each!
The cottage was exactly what we wanted/needed as a small family with a one-year-old daughter. We would certainly stay here again!
Thanks Adam. So glad you guys enjoyed your stay so much. We had been working around the clock to get that kitchen done before your arrival, and we have a few more new additions going into it shortly as well. (Have to squeeze them in between bookings!) Thanks for the suggestion on the TV, makes sense, and that will be next on my list. All the best!
