  • Javier and Muriel were extremely welcoming and helped us out a lot. Their home is very clean, spacious and modern. The house is in a nice neighbourhood close to restaurants and amenities. I could not recommend them more.

  • Staying with Javier and Muriel was wonderful. Their home is absolutely spotless, very modern and beautifully presented. The location is excellent, close to the centre of town. They were both very welcoming and friendly people. If you are planning a trip to Orlando a stay at their home is a 5 star stay.

    June 2014
  • It was very pleasant to visit Javier and Muriel house. Amazing place to relax after visiting all the attractions surrounding the neighbourhood. Everything is at 15/20 minutes drive. You'll find out that everything is clean, perfect, comfortable, just as the pictures!. Loved that little dog 'Mia' :). Had a good chat time with both of the hosts and they will make sure you feel at home. I'll definitely return back, hope it happens soon. :)

  • Javier and Muriel were really awesome hosts. They are open minded and relaxed and it was a lot of fun to talk to Javier. He gave us a few rides and tips what to explore in the city, what was really nice and helpful. The house is just beautiful and we loved our room. It was totally clean, tidy and lovely decorated. We felt totally comfortable during our whole stay and definitely recommend Javier and Muriel :)

  • Great place! Clean and comfortable! Javier is very nice! It's pity not meet Muriel.

    May 2014
  • Had a great stay at Muriel and Javier's place. Nice spacious room with large wardrobe. Javier was very friendly and made us a great smoothie in the morning. B&b is really well situated, only a short drive from outlets and the attraction parks. There is also a fantastic cafe for breakfast just around the corner at Christos. Best breakfasts of our holiday.

    May 2014
  • Our experience with Javier & Muriel was great. Hosts like Javier is the reason for airbnb to exist. The communication was fast and pleasant before and during our stay. All the questions I had, were answered by Javier with patience. He made sure we understood there will be other guests and that we do not have any issues with dogs (he has a very sweet little dog). The neighborhood is very beautiful and pleasant. The house is modern and new. The room was very nice and clean. Javier is a great guy and even shared some fruit and morning shakes with us. All and all, this was our best stay with airbnb till now.

  • I don't know what i can say about Javier, Muriel and Mia! We loved everything!
    The house, the neighbourhood, the hosts...
    You need to stay there! From the first contact until the "see you" we had greaaat moments. It was like a old friend's house.

    Para os brasileiros:

    HOSPEDEM-SE AQUI! Em um primeiro momento a distância dos principais parques pode parecer um ponto negativo, mas em Orlando é muiiito fácil andar de carro e você chega em quase qualquer lugar em menos de 20 minutos. Além disso, a vizinhança é muito bonita e cheia de opções de alimentação.

    O Javier é uma pessoa extremamente agradável de se lidar e está sempre disposto a ajudar de verdade! A casa é linda, limpa e cheia de utensílios domésticos e gadgets. Usamos TV, aspirador, lavanderia, forno etc. Tudo foi melhor que eu esperava.

    Pode parar de procurar e reserve logo a sua estadia!

  • We really enjoyed staying at Javier & Muriel's beautiful house. Javier and Muriel were very welcoming and made us feel like home. Our room was exactly like in the pictures, everything was clean and nice. Javier and Muriel had thougth of every little detail to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The area was super nice, with lots of breakfast places and restaurants nearby, and it was an easy drive from the airport and to Disney. We would definitely stay there again next time we're in Orlando.

  • Airbnb at its best!!!
    Javier and Muriel were awesome hosts. Javier let us know where to go to get to know the real Orlando. We loved Javier's and Muriel's house. Super clean and nice room. Sweet little dog, Mia.
    Pretty neighborhood, easy to find and centrally located.
    We just had one night at their place and would definitely come back. Despite our short stay we had some time to talk to them. Laid back, easy and open. Thanks for the smoothie and the tips!!!

Carnival Cruise Lines
I was born in Lima, Peru but was raised in Miami, FL. Grew up in South Florida and in 2006 made the move up north and now call Orlando, FL home. Married and now livin the dream. My job is in the travel industry, cruise to be specific. 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 typical 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 so far. 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, Singapore, Germany, Spain, Costa Rica, China, Delhi, Scotland, Ecuador, Australia, Korea, 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!" If you're a newbie to airbnb, welcome!
