Mi experiencia en la casa de Cissa fue excelente en todos sus aspectos, la ubicacion es muy buena, el vecindario muy tranquilo, la propiedad tiene un equipamiento superlativo,la piscina a solo cinco metros del apartamento, estacionamiento libre en la zona y por sobre todas las cosas la seguridad.
En sintesis recomendable cien por cien.
Cissa is a lovely person.
The house is very pretty.
I will recommend it
Mon séjour fut des plus agréable, l'endroit parfait la vue est a couper le souffle, l'accueil parfait Cissa et son mari sont agréable comme hôte, l'appartement parfait aussi, j'y reviendrais avec grand plaisir…
Great vacation rental! Everything about the apartment is as described in the listing. It is a spacious, comfortable, relaxing and well appointed duplex apartment that is perfect for a family. and would probably also work well for two couples. It is about a ten minute walk to the beach, and is close to many good and reasonably priced restaurants. Cissa is very pleasant and very accessible, if you have any questions. My family and I would definitely try to stay here again the next time we are in Miami and highly recommend it to any of my friends. It took awhile to search Airbnb for the right place to stay, and when we arrived at Cissa's place, I was glad I made the effort.
We were very glad to stay at Cisca's house. Her hospitalty was great. We are thankful for cleaning.. The house is the same as photos. Thanks for everything..
Me, my wife, our 6-month old son and my mother stayed in this fantastic house for a week and it was better than we had hoped for. The house/apartment is really big and perfect for 3-6 persons. The pictures don't lie at all. Everything is clean and have a high standard and there is really nothing to complain about.
The pool is just outside the door and the very nice dock/jetty is only feets away. Surroundings are clean and feels very safe. Only a 10 minute walk to the beach and lots of restaurants, shopping etc.
We bought a lot of food at the supermarket Publix (which was a very nice store) and cooked our own food several times. Have a barbeque and a glass of wine on the dock. Very, very nice!!
Cissa was the perfect host and easy to communicate with. She made sure that we had everything we needed and it felt likes she really cared for us. Thanks Cissa for everything!! We will definently come back!
We went there for a 2 weeks stay and it was really great! This place is nice and clean and in a really calm and safe neighborhood. With 2 double beds and one sleeping couch, it wasmore than enough space for 3 and could also be great for a family of four or even five. The pool outside was also a big plus. The beach is in walking distance (around 5-10 minutes), but you can also take the bus or grab a taxi to South beach. It's perfectly situated for a day trip to the everglades or a weekend trip to Florida Keys.
Cissa and Court were very much of help to us and gave us a lot of great tips on were to go and what to do and see in and around Miami. If you go there, make sure to get on a boat to get a round trip through the bay! Our vacation was awesome and the villa was one reason for this. I really hope we'll be able to come back some time.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
