Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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.

    Response from Javier & Muriel:

    Thanks Joanna, enjoy your US tour and all the best to you two!

  • 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!!!

  • Javier was very flexible and let me drop off my bag early, so I was able to spend the day at Disney. When I came home, there were delicious cookies out and a nice bedroom to stay in. I wish I had stayed there longer, as later I found out that they were in a great neighbourhood to wander! Would stay again!

    If you ever make it back to Otown come stay with us again, we can show you the hood, lots of great spots in College Park, Winter Park and Thorton Park!

  • We enjoyed our overnight stay with Javier and Muriel, wish we could have stayed longer. We would definitely recommend Airbnb.

    Response from Javier & Muriel:

    Thanks T!!

  • On a scale from 1-10 our stay was easily a 10 if not better. From the moment we stepped in the door we were graced by Javier's hospitality and friendly conversation. It was like visiting long lost family/friends. Being able to stay in such a beautiful place with a almost heaven-like bed and also be so near to the central hub of Orlando was a huge blessing. Javier's and Muriel's dog Mia was so well mannered and cute I jokingly said she was the highlight of the stay. The room and bathroom were very clean. Javier was very helpful in advising us on some great places to go to for food and recreation. Truly amazing, we will definitely be checking in for another stay the next time we visit Orlando. Thank you so much for having us Javier and Muriel! God bless!

  • Perfect experience! Javier & Muriel are very responsive with pre-booking messages, and communicated with us through the whole time. Javier also offerred us fresh fruit, and recommended restaurants and attraction to us (We didn't meet Muriel; she was not home during our stay). Their room is stylish and very clean; bed was comfy. I would highly recommend it!

    March 2014
  • Javier & Muriel were super nice hosts. We were all day travelling around and it was great to have such a nice room to come back at night. It is a described in the pics, very clean and nice. The house is located next to very good local restaurants and you can commute very easily to the attractions in Orlando, the malls as well as to the highways taking you to the beach. Javier was very nice, caring, offering us fresh fruit and he even left us some delicious muffins when we left. It was a very pleasant stay and i would recommend it highly to anyone coming to Orlando!

  • We enjoy very much!

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!
