About this listing

Beautiful sunny room in a great Mimo style home.

The space

Renting a room in a totally renovated 1950's Mimo Style Miami home (1,800SqFt) 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 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 Queen size bed, plenty of closet space, washer, dryer and parking are also included.

You can also sit and relax in the Florida room, living/dining room and use the TV. You have access to the new modern kitchen to cook and eat in if you like. You can also go in the yard and use the outside terrace.

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.

Other things to note

I have two small dogs one is a Miniature Schnauzer that is 10 years old and a Havanese that is 4 years old. They are both very friendly and are hypoallergenic dogs. I recently rescued a beautiful Dalmatian mix (not hypoallergenic) that is 4 years old and very playful.

I had an amazing stay with Calixto. He was super friendly and helpful. His house was beautifully decorated and the location was perfect. Calixto made my boyfriend and I feel at home. He was so accommodating and made us feel comfortable from the moment we arrived. I hated that we had to leave but next time we're in Miami, we will definitely stay with Calixto again.

First let me point out that this was my very first air bnb. Calixo set the bar very high. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Calixto is an amazing person, very kind and accommodating. My flight got in at 11am and he let me in check early even though he was still getting the house together. He also allowed my cousin to stay after last minute changes. He greeted me outside with open arms and took my bags. Showed me around his beautiful home and provided me with pamphlets for things to do in Miami. The home and room was just as pictured, very sunny and super clean (spotless actually) and full of culture. He always checked on me and gave me advice about places im going. He always replied to my text messages when I needed something while he was away. His neighborhood was very safe and the stores are about 5-10 walking distance. He also has two dogs who are just the most adorable things ever. The last night I was there he had a small dinner party with friends and family. He cooked a Cuban style dish which was amazing. If you're planning on staying with Calixto YOU'LL LOVE IT. Can't wait to go back! He's like family.

We stayed with Calixto on the very end of a little trip through Florida. We are so sad, we just stayed two nights at his house. Everything was so clean and elegant, he is one of the best Hosts I ever had and we felt like home since the first moment we arrived. He made our stay as comfortable and perfect as possible and we were very sad we had to leave after a few days!

It was my first time using airbnb with my boyfriend Of course like everyone else we we're nervous! When I booked with Calixto he immediately wrote to me to confirm my booking! On the way of my arrival I texted him and he immediately reply and was waiting for me! My flight got delayed and Calixto was perfectly okay with it! Once I got to his place he greeted us with opens arms and showed us around the house! I encourage everyone too book with Calixto! He is a super host, he is one of the nicest people I've ever met! Any questions I had he was right there too answer it! His place is super clean honestly cleaner than some hotels I've stayed at! His home is so beautifully decorated, paintings all over, and very bright! I'm so thankful for Calixto for letting us stay at his beautiful home! PS if you're a dog lover your will love his place even more!He's has the most adorable dogs! I will miss them!! Again thank you Calixto for everything!

I had a very nice time spended in Calixto's place. He welcomed me very nicely, felt like staying in friends house. We also had a couple conversations, and Calixto might be the most (world and life) educated person I have ever met. Loved His house rules also dogs were very friendly. They even cooked me desert and spanish national food. I definetelly advice other to come and experience hospitality in Calixto's house.

Historic location, but exquisitely updated home. Convenient location in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Calixto lives in the home and treats guests like family. He offers meals, snacks, gourmet coffees, and social time together. He is an endless source of information about the local area. At the same time, he respects the guests privacy and need for quiet time. This was my first air bnb experience, and Calixto has set a standard that will be difficult for any host to follow. I very much hope to visit again.

I could not have been any happier with the property and overall experience. Everything looked like how it was pictured: clean, spacious, and well decorated. In addition, Calixto and Nello were wonderful. In all honesty, this was my first time traveling outside of Texas by myself, but they didn't hesitate to make me feel like I was part of the family. I was terrified when I walked in through the door, but they welcomed me with smiles. They are very generous, respectful, and friendly. They are open with others as well. I was able to use everything in the house. In addition, Calixto is a very knowledgeable and relatable person that anyone can talk to for long periods of times. For sure a person I will stay in touch with!

Brian, thank you for this recommendation. I know it was a shock to get to someone's house and realize you will be staying with strangers. You add to that the first time traveling by yourself and leaving Texas it is summed up in one word. "STRESS". I am so happy you felt at home. hugs!
