Danielle & Greg were wonderful hosts. This was our first air bnb experience and when we arrived our hosts were very welcoming. The apartment is stylish, comfortable and clean. The area is great, there are lots of nice restaurants and it's a nice place to walk around. Danielle and Greg made lots of good recommendations for places to eat and things to do and a walk around the local area with Greg was a highlight of our stay.
My overall experience with Danielle and Greg was absolutely phenomenal and it surpassed my expectations! It was a sincere and a true Blessing to have stood at "Relax in Style at Casa de dos Gatos Hosted by DandG Smith". My first participation with `airbnb' proved to be an amazing one had it not been for Danielle and Greg. I will definitely make `airbnb' website my very first stop before exploring other avenues for a place to stay while traveling. The opportunity to get acquainted with other like-minded people who share a vision in business was a Godsend and a sign that I made the right choice at "Casa de dos Gatos"!
The entire home matched exactly what the pictures showed and described. Danielle and Greg also takes into consideration great lengths to leave pristine/specific instructions for all our needs before, during, and after arrival so every one of my questions were answered before I even embarked on the trip to their beautiful place! The Cats (Kreacher & Dobbie) are absolutely awesome and showed me great affection, company, and love. The neighborhood of `Coconut Grove' within Miami is astonishing and very remarkable. It has almost everything to Relax in Style along with an Historic heritage so I will be visiting again hopefully in the near future because there is just so much to see and do.
Greg was more than happy to take me around town to show me the Hot-Spots and the activities around the area which was very nice of him.
I clearly, unequivocally, beyond any doubt will choose to stay at "Casa de dos Gatos Hosted by DandG Smith" again! Please support them in all that they do! Again, I am highly grateful for having found my home away from home with Danielle, Greg, Kreacher & Dobbie! Much Success and Many Blessings-
We had a great experience at Danielle & Greg's! The apartment looked exactly as listed in the pictures, down to every last detail. Our room and bathroom were located on the other end of the apartment from Danielle & Greg, so optimal for privacy, although they were very welcoming in inviting us to share their common space. The rooftop pool was fantastic, and offered great views. We rented a car and were a quick & comfortable drive from all Miami attractions (South Beach, Key Biscayne, Downtown etc), but the neighborhood of Coconut Grove is very easily accessible by foot--there were a number of bars and restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk.
Danielle & Greg were great hosts and offered advice on things to do in the area. We stayed for 2 nights and were out for the majority of our visit, returning only to sleep, but in our brief time with them we felt very welcome and comfortable in their home, and their company. I'd definitely recommend this listing to friends in the future!
Just a great place in a great neighbourhood. D&G make you feel home right away so we will definitely go back.
Great place in Miami. Very helpful Host ;) and great market on Saturdays
The room was super clean; and we had our own private bathroom!
Upon arrival Greg and Danielle took us for a walk around the neighborhood to show us around, which helped a lot!
Cats were lovely. Rooftop was a great addition to our stay.
Gostamos muito! Localização muito boa, perto de várias coisas legais pra fazer em Miami. Quarto confortável e com espaço para as malas. Fomos bem recebidos e eles nos ajudaram bastante dando dicas de lugares para conhecermos. Recomendamos!
I really need to say a big thank you to Greg for providing us such a comfortable and wonderful place to stay. Greg is one of the most friendly and polite person I've ever seen. It is especially quite impressive to me that when we first met Greg even just initated to show us around the neighborhood and introduced to us a list of famous restaurents around. That short talking over the walking was quite a pleasant experience with him. And the place he offered us was an amazing apartment with great facilities. The location is also a plus. I would definitely recommend Greg's place to any airbnb users who are looking for a great place to stay for a great price. Lastly thank you Javier again for your warmest welcome and being so friendly^_^
Greg was a great host, very friendly and easy to communicate with. We were only in town for a night but had no issues finding the place or coming and going as needed. Very convenient location and nice bedroom and private bathroom for guests.
Dang and Danielle are very kindly, very wonderful and friendly people, they are very polite and always smiling, Dobbie and Kreature are very affectionate.
The Casa de los Dos Gatos could be called like a home.
