Jackie and Tom were attentive hosts. They shared information about places to go, sights to see and restaurants to enjoy. It's obvious they enjoy company. Their place is a virtual art gallery, representing two lifetimes of work. It was a treat to watch the sunrise over the ocean while having breakfast, what a beautiful view. Access to the beach was close and easy, the apartment clean and quiet. Miami Beach is an exciting place to vacation and we enjoyed our "front row seat."
Jacky e Tom sono stati molto accoglienti,ieri di consigli e molto di supporto per tutta la vacanza. E' stato bello trascorrere alcuni giorni in un paese lontano sembrando a casa da degli zii... Fantastico. Quartiere molto bello, palazzo anche, l'apprtamento bellissimo con vista incantesima su oceano ed accesso diretto a piscina e spiaggia. Noi consigliamo vivamente questo host!!!
Hola Jacki and Tom.
Nuestra estadía en Miami fue perfecta. El apartamento sus comodidades y la calidez de sus anfitriones sencillamente estupenda, dudo mucho que pudiera haber sido mejor en otro sitio.
Ha sido una experiencia especial esta de compartir con Ustedes, junto con mi hijo y yo, vuestro hogar. Provenimos de culturas diferentes, tal vez religiones diferentes, tenemos idiomas y seguramente ideologías distintas, y aún así, el trato humano cordial, entre ustedes y nosotros contiene la esencia de la vida en sociedad: poder vivir armoniosamente en este mundo. Muchas gracias por vuestra hospitalidad, nos hemos sentido como en casa y sobre todo seguros de intentar repetir esta experiencia, si es en Miami, seguro en vuestro hogar y si fuera en el mundo, estoy seguro que encontraremos un lugar tan perfecto como el vuestro. Mis sinceros deseos de felicidad y plenitud y tengan por seguro que estarán en nuestros pensamientos. Afectuosamente Enzo y Aldo
Nos alojamos durante cinco días con sus noches en el hogar de Jackie y Tom. Ellos son personas muy amables, educadas y respetuosas.
El departamento de Jackie y Tom es espacioso, muy bien decorado (con muchas de las obras de ellos mismos), y limpio. El dormitorio que ocupamos era cómodo y disponíamos de todos los elementos esenciales para nuestra permanencia allí. Nuestros anfitriones nos ofrecieron todos los días un agradable desayuno continental, y también pudimos guardar en el refrigerador algunas frutas que adquirimos.
El edificio en que se encuentra el departamento es acogedor y elegante. Tiene una piscina amplia y salida directa a la playa.
Durante toda nuestra estadía fueron respetadas escrupulosamente las pautas establecidas por nuestros anfitriones, y ellos nos ofrecieron consejos y recomendaciones sobre los lugares a visitar en la ciudad.
No tenemos más que buenos recuerdos y agradecimiento para Jackie y Tom.

About the Host, Jacqueline
My husband and I live in our apartment all year around and we are both artists. We enjoy sharing our space and hosting our guests. We love music and art and go to many concerts and enjoy visiting museums and galleries. We are very active in the art community. We also love good movies and try to get to the good ones. We go to the gym in our building every morning at 8 am for an hour, and try to swim every day. We enjoy having guests My husband and I met in Vienna on an art tour through Vienna and Budapest. We have both traveled extensively through western Europe staying in small Inns and pensions. I lived in England for two years and 2 years in Holland. I loved both countries very much. In England I was a regular at the National Theater and the many galleruies and museums. From England I traveled south through Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Ireland, and Greece. Tom lived in Paris for a couple of years where he spent most of his time painting. After we met we traveled back to all of the places we knew and loved to share our special cities. We have both also traveled through Latin America and many mediteranean countries.
We enjoy great seafood, Sushi, Thai, Mexican and most ethnic foods. There are many excellent ethnic restaurants in our area.
Traveling I have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts enjoying the hospitality of the hosts and I always thought that it would be a fun thing to do and a great way to meet people from all over. I was born and grew up in New York City where I went to school majoring in Art and Art management. Tom is a trained Art Conservator and I apprenticed with him learning how to repair Fine Art on paper and Fine Art paintings. We are well known in the community for our work and specialize in Latin American Art. Our home is filled with our own work as well as our collection.
I believe Life is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First.
Our apartment is considered Mid-beach and we are about three miles from South Beach. Many people walk it daily. Many prefer to walk on the beach, on the front side just a couple of blocks away you pass the famous Edenrock and Fountainebleau Hotels and walk along the canal with large boats and yachts from all over the world. If you are not a walker the buses directly in front will take you just about anywhere. We are a hotel and residential area away from the late night noises of South Beach yet close enough to enyoy the South Beach night life, and shopping areas. Lincoln Road is a walking street with restaurants, shops, and movies. It is the place to go to people watch as well as enjoying the ethnic influences in Miami.
