We had a great time staying at Javier & Muriels place in this nice area, College Park. We only got to meet Muriel, Javier was working, but she was kind and very helpful giving us tips and ideas. We could use anything in the house.
Would love to come back!

Javier & Muriel’s place was perfect! The house is located in a quite neighborhood and it’s beautiful, spacious, nicely decorated and modern. The bedrooms are large with plenty of space and a large closet; the bed is really comfy and the bathroom is spotless.
Javier & Muriel are great hosts, they are very attentive and they provided me with all the information I need it to make my stay enjoyable. Thank you.
Great and clean room. Great overall experience... The hosts were super friendly.
This was my first ever experience with Airbnb, and it was definitely a great one.
Thank you, Javier and Muriel for being wonderful hosts. You were very generous in making adjustments to our late night flight and making other changes to adjust our schedule at the very last minute. We loved our stay there. The place was clean, beautiful and quiet - and most importantly, very central to many activities in Orlando.
If we get a chance to be in Orlando as visitors ever again, we will definitely chose your place.

About the Host, Javier & Muriel
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!"
