Karen & Hiram are verry nice hosts! They make you feel at home,wash your clothes if you want to en give alot of great tips to see ore do in Miami. The only thing is that the bed is pretty small en short for two people. Specially when your tall.
Beside that i highly recommend staying with this verry nice couple!
I appologyze for the bed its an American full size. I had no idea you guys were so tall. If I would of have one of the other rooms with a queen available I would have switched you. In the US we have 4 sizes of beds, twin, full, queen, and king. In my descriptions of my rooms I state the size of each bed. In your particular case you should always ask what sizes are the beds before you book your next stay.
“A GREAT PLACE TO STAY”
Karen and Hiram are the perfect hosts. Their greatest asset is their unique personality. During your stay, they will give you the best of themselves to make you feel comfortable and enjoy yourself.
They have a genuine interest in people and like to exchange with and learn about their national and international guests. If you stay for a long period, you will experience life at Killian Acre as part of their own family, in a safe place to live, where you will get support, encouragement and opportunities to learn new things. I personally had the pleasure to spend authentic and real moments discussing with them, their family and friends. Priceless moments!
Karen and Hiram will both connect to you and make sure they can provide advice, recommendations and extra services you may expect. For example, the pre-programmed GPS (which works perfectly) allowed me to discover amazing places off the tourist trail, the numerous tips given before and during my stay allowed me to get the best quality/price (restaurants, rent-a-car, SIM card, leisure activities etc.), “girls only” moments (walks, shopping etc.) …
Karen and Hiram house is welcoming. The security gate system and the dog will make you feel secure while chilling around the pool! The whole house is cleaned on a regular basis. All residential guests are courteous and respectful towards others. Noise is maintained at a reasonable level at all times allowing everyone to sleep quietly in his/her own room.
If you want to have a great experience and a lot of wholesome fun in Miami do not hesitate any longer and book rapidly your stay at Killian Acre!
Karen and Hiram are the type of hosts we all want to have, the type of hosts we all love.
Hiram & Karen is a very nice host!
The room is big and very clean, the bathroom it's very spacious and very, very clean. I was impressed by how clean she kept her house. The house has a beautiful garden and a beautiful large pool.
The house is in a very nice neighborhood!
Hiram & Karen are great hosts and a very hospitable. I highly recommend Their home. For sure, its a great place to stay.
Everything was great.
Hiran and Karen are extraordinary people. I thank all you've done for me. I miss you already. Kisses
Karen and Hiram are absolutely amazing.
Plenty of reviews speak about their beautiful home, how clean everything is and how nice they are. All of this is 100% true, but they don't convey what it is like to stay with them.
They are extremely caring. They are fun. They are funny. They are great role models. They have a loving relationship and love to participate in engaging conversations. They have fun friends who often stop by for a visit and a bite to eat.
They know Miami (and the world) and have great suggestions for day trips, restaurants and local activities. They provide suggestions and want to help you find the activities that are right for you.
I'll miss daily walks with Karen. Her cooking. Her laugh. Celebrating pirate day at Killian Acre. I'll miss discussing all the problems in the world - and coming up with new solutions. I'll miss her guidance. Her fashion advice. And I'll miss sweet little Dolly (the adorable dog).
And Hiram, what a character!! I'll miss hearing him say 'pero' instead of but. 'Como' instead of how. And learning more about what it is like to be in his world, especially when it means leaving the house with only one sock or two different shoes.
I now have a second home in Miami. I will be back and hopefully I will meet you on an adventure with Karen and Hiram.
Hiram and Karen's are wonderful hosts who have a passion for life which certainly rubbed off on us during our stay! Great communication throughout the process. Killian Acre is a wonderful oasis in a central location for sightseeing in the Miami area. We stayed in the Maia room which was ample and clean, had a guest bathroom all to ourselves and the freedom to use the rest of the house is greatly appreciated!
Very great experience! Big and clean house, free breakfast, they even have a pool!
I feel very lucky to choose them as our hosts. They are very knowledgeable of surroundings, gave us a lots of info that we need. Highly recommend.
La verdad es que haber estado alojados en la casa de Hiram y Karem fue una muy buena experiencia para nosotros dos. Nunca creímos que llegaríamos a tener esa comodidad y esa gratitud entre estos propietarios sus familiares y amigos. La casa es fantástica, no le falta detalle para unas buenas vacaciones con tu pareja o con tus hijos pero lo mejor de todo fue la bondad de esta familia los cuales hicieron que nos sintiéramos como en nuestra propia casa, nos acogieron desde el primer día y nos ayudaron en todo aquello que nos hacia falta. Compartimos culturas, aprendimos unos de otros, transmitimos y nos transmitieron muy buenas ideas para el día a día, compartimos comidas, chistes, fiestas y muy buenos momentos. Queremos por ello dejar firmada con estas palabras la muy buena impresión sobre Karen e Hiram y dejar dicho que Miami con ellos gana mucho. Esperamos volver a veros: Ana y Jesús
Both Karen and Hiram are very special people. Their hospitality was superb. My friend and I were fascinated by their detailed thoughts. We were so glad to make new friends. Every time I come to Miami, I will look forward to stay in their beautiful home. That's exactly how I felt...a home away from home!
AWESOME host, awesome location! Karen and Hiram are a really nice couple who opened their GREAT house to our little family. The home is even better than depicted in the pictures, very clean and ample space . I had access to the beautiful garden where there is a swing and a slide for our baby boy ! The swimming pool was so clean !
Everything was just perfect for us. The kitchen has everything it needs and Karen takes attention to details when it comes to welcoming people. I cooked with her, I felt like I was at home ! She gave me all the tips I needed to visit the area, she was amazing.
It was just like being at a friend's place, she was in contact when she needed to be, just an incredibly sweet personality! Please, stay at Karen’s place whenever you want to come to Miami area !
Superbe séjour chez Karen et Hiram ! Une maison incroyable avec piscine et jardin magnifique ! L maison est propre, très bien tenue, décorée avec soin. Karen et moi avons cuisiné ensemble, discuté de beaucoup de choses. Je vous recommande fortement leur maison si vous voulez être bien situés au sud de la ville de Miami. Vous vous sentirez chez vous, vraiment !
