Homestead is a small town south of Miami, very safe and peaceful, unlike the hustle and bustle of Miami. My apartment is on a private condominium, with very little road traffic or noise, ideal if you are looking to actually rest during the night.
Spent a day walking at the Everglades? Used up all your oxygen tanks diving in Key Largo? Tired of repacking your chute from a day of skydiving? Come rest here! I offer very fast WiFi, but I don't have cable TV at home (though you are welcome to use my Netflix account to enjoy a movie or TV show).
I'll be happy to help you pick places to visit while in Miami, and if you just wanna hang out after partying all day, that's fine too.
I'm a certified geek, so if you like Star Trek and that type of stuff we can have a great time too. Please note I have a cat, so heads up if you are allergic.
Homestead is known as the Gateway to the Keys. It is the last "big" city before you leave the continent. There are plenty of places to fish and swim and go on boat rides. I don't do these things myself, having never seen a fish outside of a blue MacDonalds sandwich carton, but you get the gist...
Keep in mind Miami is not like NY or any European city where you can use public transport to move about: YOU WILL NEED A CAR. Believe me. If you are thinking of taking the bus for transport, I really do not recommend you rent my room, you will be stuck using up your vacation time transferring from bus to bus.
If you like to Skydive, Skydive Miami is about 15 minutes away. They aren't very big on fun jumps (focus more on the tandem crowd) but you could get some good jumping in the mornings. There is plenty of diving and snorkeling opportunities just down the road in the Keys as well. Cheers!
Guests are welcome to use all areas of the house, and have their own private bedroom and bathroom. Feel free to cook and store your groceries in the fridge too. Please make sure to clean up after you're done (and just putting dirty dishes on the dishwasher does not count as cleaning up ok?) ;-))
I'm pretty laid back, so common sense rules apply. The TV is located in the living room and guests are welcome to watch at any hour and be in charge of the remote :-) I usually keep to myself in my own room, so you'll more or less have the house to you when you are here. Feel free to use the kitchen as well, but please return everything to a tidy state afterwards. I have no problems with guests coming in or out at late hours, but of course, no loud music or TV very late at night (past 11pm). If you wish to do a load of laundry, please let me know **before** you start the washer. If you need an early check in, or a late check out, please let me know before hand, I can usually accommodate you (as long as you let me know in advance).
i really enjoyed my stay at Tiagos place. it was a nice room with a beautiful big bed. also the bathroom was great. Tiago allowed me to use the kitchen and everything i needed. i really can recommend him!!
ich konnte meinen aufenthalt bei Tiago wirklich geniessen. das zimmer war schön mit einem grossen bett. auch im badezimmer war alles sauber. ich durfte auch die küche brauchen, einfach alles was man beaucht ist dort! sehr empfehlenswert!!
good host in a nice neighborhood, nice experience but a little far to any where. You need a car for sure.
Tiago was very accommodating; in fact, due to a change in plans I needed to arrive a day earlier and that wasn't a problem at all. He had an extra room in which I could stay. After the other guests left he cleaned the bathroom and made up the room for me. He even left the light on in the room for me, as I didn't come home until late that night.
His place is very tidy, exactly as he describes it and is only 5 min away from the highway as well as grocery stores, if it's even that far. The furthest south I ventured was Bahia Honda State Park, which was about 2 hours away. John Pennekamp State Park is attainable in about 40 min.
This was my first Airbnb experience and a very positive one. Thank you Tiago!
Tiago offered everything we need. The bed was cozy and bathroom were clean. I had a tight schedule for a trip to Key West. I came back very late night and had to head for Miami right away. So, I left the accomdation earlier. (Sorry for leaving without giving U any notice)Since I haven't seen him during our stay. So, I'd like to say thank you at this post. :))
Tiago was really helpful and we had a good time and a nice room. The neighborhood is quite and you'll feel comfortable there !
Tiago was very helpful about making me feel welcome. The accommodations were wonderful. I would stay there again...absolutely. The place was clean, the accommodations large.

Hello! I am a work-at-home geek and I'll be happy to help you pick some places to visit if this is your first time visiting Miami. If it's not, I can help you anyway :-). I have a pet cat called Bender, I like sci-fi movies and I skydive. I also read a lot (though not while skydiving). Have you ever watched Monk? I'm kinda like him: I like to keep my house very tidy, and I don't make a lot of noise. I'm originally from Brazil, so if you want to ask me how to say anything in Portuguese, I can certainly help with that too. Looking forward to meeting you! :-)
