The Space

"La Casita del Rio" is a charming 4 bedroom 2 bath Spanish home on the historic Miami River. The house is fully furnished and equipped and includes a full kitchen with all cooking and eating utensils, High Sped Internet and Cable TV.

The house, recently renovated, sits in a quiet tropical Central Miami neighborhood close to the Airport, Downtown Miami, the Medical Center and within minutes from South Beach, Coconut Grove, Key Biscayne, and the Midtown art scene.. There is public bus transit available 2 blocks from the house and connects to both the Metrorail and People Mover downtown. Public Transit also connects to Miami International Airport and the intercity Tri County train system known as Tri-Rail connecting Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

Colorful ethnic neighborhoods are close by where you can enjoy the sights sounds and taste of other cultures. For more upscale adventures you can head downtown just a few minutes away and enjoy the fine arts or catch a Miami Heat game at the arena. If you like baseball our new Marlins baseball stadium in a few blocks (website hidden) (email hidden) with lots to do at anytime of the day. the city doesn't sleep. But here on the banks of the river you can, if you choose to relax, lay in a hammock by the water and watch as iguanas stroll by the dock, while the occasional dolphin or manatee plays on the surface and ships maneuver by just a few feet away from you. If fishing is your game inquire about availability and rates for our 52 foot classic sportsfish "Pollyanna" available for charter docked behind the house.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I didn't have much contact with Armando, as I had lived in Miami before. However, I didn't get the email with instructions for the entry code, and he responded very quickly to my text (within 15-20 minutes) and was ever helpful. I believe that had I needed him, he would have been available at any time during the day. The home is lovely. Was big enough to sleep all 5 of us, although sitting in the living room was a challenge as there are only 2 loveseats.
    I loved staying at Casita del Rio, and it was pretty close to everything that my group wanted to see and do. Check in/out was smooth and easy.
    The only thing that was difficult... some basic kitchen/shower stuff wasn't there that I had been expecting (though Ill take responsibility for not asking). We ended up buying trash bags, paper towels, extra toilet paper & dish soap and some wash clothes.
    Otherwise, the stay was excellent, and we would stay again.

  • Armando was very attentive and had no problems. He was flexible with the time of check out, which is really great.
    The house is well located and the pictures correspond exactly with the site.

  • Das Haus, das Grundstück, die Ausstattung sind einfach hervorragend !
    Alle Darstellungen, die hier in airbnb niedergelegt sind, stimmen.
    Armando ist sehr hilfsbereit und ist stets erreichbar für den Fall, dass es etwas zu fragen oder abzustimmen gäbe.
    Wir waren als Familie mit zwei großen Kindern in diesem Haus und es fehlte uns an nichts! Wir haben hier eine sehr glückliche Zeit verbracht und werden, wenn wir wieder nach Miami kommen, wieder auf Armando's Unterkunft zurück kommen.

  • Het huisje ligt heel centraal gelegen, dichtbij de luchthaven (je hoort de vliegtuigen wel dichtbij overvliegen!) en Miami centrum. Het zicht op de rivier is heel leuk en af en toe varen boten langs. Er zijn 4 slaapkamers, waarvan 3 met dubbele bedden en 1 met 2 aparte, goed voor max 8 gasten. Keuken is heel goed ingericht en alles was heel proper. We hadden bij aankomst een probleem met verstopte wc/douche maar Armando heeft dit binnen de 2 dagen (laten) herstellen. Prijs/kwaliteit zeer goed, zeker aan te bevelen.

  • Our stay at Armando's house was wonderful. He was polite, prepared, and communicated all the details well. I would definitely stay again.

  • Armando (email hidden), he let us into the house and gave us a welcome pack of provisions as well. The property was perfect for our needs and we had a great time staying there would recommend the house totally, just watch out for the iguanas falling from the tree.

  • Clean house, comfortable and central location. We liked the quiet street and shaded parking for the car. The 4 bedrooms and 2 baths were great for our comfort. Some rather nice looking art work on the walls. Would stay there again.

  • The house and the garden were very pleasant. Everything was as described with all the commodities required. The area is quiet and valued our strictly leasure trip. Armando was thoughful and available. I recommand this rental and we would come back with great pleasure.

  • Excelente la pasamos increible, muy buena ubicación en la mitad de todo tanto Norte como Sur de la Florida y excelente la casa, es igual a la mostrada en las fotos. Armando nos dejo a nuestra llegada unos snacks de bienvenidad, muy limpia la casa en todo sentido. 100% Recomendado de seguro la proxima vez que regrese a Miami la casa de Armando será mi opción si se encuentra libre.

  • Armando and his wife were great hosts and came round within an hour to see us when we called with a small problem. They came back later, fixed the problem and brought some delicious cuban pastries from Versailles. We indulged in eating the mangoes that fell from the tree in the garden each morning. My husband loved watching the river traffic and relaxing in the hammock. We would definitely go again.

I've been in Miami nearly all my life. I love the place the weather the people but particularly the ocean the islands and the (website hidden) has grown up. It's not an old city as some cities are. It's like a young adult... full of life and it's own mixture of culture. Come and stay at our house and enjoy the only tropical metropolitan area in the continental US. Experience the Architecture, the landscape, the people and the life. My wife Limby and I will make sure you will enjoy a wonderful stay.
