The Space

Renting a room in a totally renovated 1950's Mimo Style Miami home (1,500SqFt) in a small municipality (Village of El Portal) within the City of Miami that is known for its foliage, peacocks, and The Little River of Miami. This is also where the Tequesta Indians once inhabited the area about 500 years ago and is marked as a county historic site. Very quiet and quaint neighborhood and close to most attractions in Miami.

For students attending Barry University the house is located about a two minute drive. If you are attending FIU North Campus it is about a 15 minute drive. If you are a student and would like an extended stay we can negotiate a better price.

For visiting tourists the drive to South Beach is 15 minutes from the house, North Beach 10 minutes. The home is centrally located so that you can get to the airport in 15 minutes, Different shopping venues no more than 15 minutes away and Downtown the same amount of time.

The room is completely decorated and furnished, has a firm full size bed, plenty of closet space, additional storage room for boxes and luggage, laundry room and parking are also included.

I have WIFI throughout the house, however you can use my computer located in the living room. You can also sit and relax in the living room and use the TV and sound system. The rest of the house is shared bathroom, living room, kitchen, dinning room, and yard.

Guest Access

All guests will have access to the entire home except for my bedroom. You can have breakfast at home and snacks if you please. I try to stay stocked up for guests.

Interaction with Guests

I try to interact with all my guests all depending on my workload and how much time I have to be out. I enjoy talking with my guests and exchanging travel experiences.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is a quiet residential one that has quite a bit of old Miami history. Great neighbors and funny mailman. It is a small town in a very large city.

Getting Around

The house is located about 200 yards from the most important street of Miami, Biscayne Blvd. The bus stop is right at that corner and you can go either North or South to all the major connections. However, Miami is very spread out so it could take a lot of time if crossing the city. Keep that in mind. Rental car is the most efficient and convenient for a city like Miami.

Other Things to Note

I have two small dogs one is a Miniature Schnauzer that is 7 years old and a Havanese that is 8 month old. They are both very friendly and are hypo allergenic dogs.

I can help you with your travel plans in the that beautiful fun town in the Florida Keys. Just Ask me!
