We really had a wonderful stay. Everything was just as described and the house was very nice and clean. Also our room was nice and the bed very comfy. They were really nice and interested in us and helped us with every questions we had.
We would totally come back again and stay with them again.
It was such a nice experience being in Orlando and hosted by Javier and Muriel. Both are commutative and helpful. they give a bunch of useful information about the area once you get there. The house is beautiful, the room is cosy... The house is a bit far from the parks but it is easy to get and I would stay there again anyway.
Hey Bryan thanks for the review. It was great to host you two, very low key as guests. Yea this home is outside of the "tourist traps" of Orlando so we love living in College Park and hope our guests too with seeing the local side of Orlando. We are about 15 minutes from Universal and list the distance of the parks from the home in the listing. If you're looking to be closer to a certain area, next time we recommend you ask the host how far is a particular area from the home. Just so you can manage expectations. Enjoy the rest of your Florida trip.
Gostamos muito da hospedagem na casa do Javier & Muriel. A casa é muito agradável e oferecem um bom apoio.
Javier made Jessica and I feel so welcomed in his home, and we couldn't be happier with choosing to stay here while on a mini vacation to Orlando! Javier and Muriel's home was absolutely beautiful, clean, and inviting and the room that we stayed in was nothing less either! The bed was so comfy, even more comfy and relaxing than my own bed at home (which is saying a lot!). Their little shih tzu, Mia, was the cutest puppy and made our stay that much better! The home was also in a perfect location, only a few minutes from downtown and extremely close to Winter Park! Javier even offered us codes for a free Uber and Lyft ride which saved us time so that way we didn't have to find parking downtown, as well as saved us some money! Thank you so much, Javier and Muriel, for letting us stay in your beautiful home, and for being so accommodating! If we are ever back in Orlando, we will definitely be staying there again!
Javier and Muriel were wonderful hosts! Both are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome while still providing enough privacy. They also had a lot of great ideas/recommendations for ways to keep busy while in Orlando. Myself and a classmate stayed for six weeks during our internship and this was the perfect place. The neighborhood is quiet and secluded enough to feel safe and relax, yet we were still able to walk and bike to most everywhere we needed to go which was a nice balance. This was a great experience for us first time Airbnb-ers!
Javier & Muriel's was perfect for me: I wanted a clean, quiet, comfortable place, close to the hotel where my meetings were held.
But I would also add that their location is in a very desirable part of Orlando, near downtown, but also just blocks from neighborhood shopping and even a Starbucks!
my first experience at Airbnb could not be better. I Stayed for 4 days in the house of Javier & Muriel. They received me very well, the house is faithful the website photos, the location is very good with all basic services, clean house, otimo space. I'll be back soon.

I was born in Lima, Peru but raised in Miami, FL. Grew up in South Florida and in 2006 made the move north and now call Orlando, FL home. Married and now livin the dream. My job is in the travel industry, cruise to be exact. I've been doing it since after college and love what I do.
Muriel is from Colombia and recently moved to Orlando. She has a background in fashion design but is going back to school for ESL. She's a total extrovert of the relationship and loves to entertain. Muriel and I both enjoy to travel and like to experience trips through a locals perspective and meet fun people. We've met several in our travels already. We are simple folks and balance each other out. She's the voice of reason and I'm the dreamer, ha!
Mia our shih-tzu / lhasa apso is the greeter of the home. When guests arrive she must sniff you out for approval. No worries she has yet to not approve any of our guests. Also unlike small dogs, she is not a barker. Instead she's more of a cuddler by your side type of pup. She likes to be taken out 3 times a day and must taste test what you're eating ;) She'll be your new friend while you're here.
We've been to: Italy, France, all around the Caribbean, parts of Canada, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Australia and all around USA. On our bucket list is Tahiti, Spain, Brazil, All over Europe, Japan and the moon!!
We began hosting guests in Oct 2012 it's been a blast! We look forward to hosting guests from different parts of the world. We would share with you tips for shopping, dining and of course the parks. We strive to have your stay with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Also while you're here we would show you the "local side" of what Orlando has to offer. You just might be surprised!
We've hosted guests from: Poland, Argentina, US, Belgium, UK, Guyana, Malaysia, Germany, Spain, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, China, Delhi, Scotland, Ecuador, Australia, Bolivia, Korea, Japan, Tahiti, Estonia, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, India, Finland, Colombia, Peru, France, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Israel, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Slovenia and South Africa. Where will our next guests be from?
Life motto for us, we are big believers in karma so in our daily lives we try to put out as much positive energy as possible because, "what goes around, comes around!"
