  • We were only in Orlando for one night, but my sister and I had a great stay at Javier and Muriel's place. Their home is lovely, and the room was nicely set up with a very comfy bed. The house was an easy drive to Universal Orlando where we spent the day. Javier and Muriel were very helpful, and quick to respond to any questions, both before we arrived and during our stay. (Oh and Mia the dog is very sweet!) If I am ever back in Orlando I would definitely stay here again.

  • We really enjoyed staying with Javier & Muriel for a few nights. They were very welcoming and helpful and their house & our room were as described/as in the pictures - very nice & clean. Javier even prepared us a delicious smoothie one morning. Hope to go back sometime - thanks again:)

  • This was my first airbnb experience and what a way to start off! Javier & Muriel's place was excellent! The room and bathroom were clean and tidy, the communication was completely thorough - they did not miss a beat!! It is as it is described down to the last detail. I did not get a chance to meet Javier, but Muriel was the nicest person and their little dog Mia was adorable. I felt comfortable coming and going, which as a tourist I did come and go at late/early hours. Also, as a single woman, I felt safe in their home and in their neighborhood. I would totally not hesitate to stay with them again if I am ever back in Orlando!!

  • First time AirBnb'er and it was a great experience I have been sharing with all my friends back home. Javier and Muriel have a lovely home and are great hosts. We spent most of the time out and about in town and the home was located, just perfectly, so that travel to hot spots in town were very simple. Will definitely use AirBnb again after this experience, and will be booking with J&M for our future travels to Orlando.

    June 2014
  • This was my first AirBNB experience and I must say Javier and Muriel were wonderful hosts! They had a lovely home, and really made Jessica and I feel at home. For our first experience, we both were very pleased! They left us nice sweet notes around the house and had an awesome book filled with all kinds of attractions to do in the city! I would definitely stay in their home again! Thank you again Javier and Muriel!

  • I couldn't have asked for a better first experience with airbnb. Javier and Muriel were absolutely wonderful hosts. The home was fantastic and located in an awesome neighborhood. We arrived very late and everything was set out perfectly for us. The communication prior to the trip was great and Javier and Muriel were very understanding and accommodating. I would love to go back and visit again. I would recommend this listing to anyone who is looking to stay in Orlando without hesitation. They are truly such friendly and caring people and do everything possible to make you feel welcome.

  • Everything was completely perfect! Javier and Muriel are the best hosts! They had everything done with the greatest taste and had so much information that helped us get around Orlando with complete ease. The neighborhood where the house is located was very quiet and many of the people we encountered were very friendly as well! We found new friends in our hosts and we will miss them but as I told them, there are no words of goodbye but instead we will meet again. Thank you Javiet and Muriel!

    June 2014
  • We had a great stay with Javier and Muriel in one of Orlando's favorite downtown neighborhoods-- College Park. The room was perfect, the bed is ridiculously comfortable, and the neighborhood is safe and quiet (while still close to everything). We'll definitely stay here again when we visit Orlando and have already recommended it to friends!

    June 2014

About
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!
