올랜도 머무실 한국인들 참고하시면 좋을거같아서 한국말로도 남깁니다.
공항에서 한 25분정도 떨어져있구 올랜도에서 안전한 지역인거 같았어요.
그리고 인터네셔널 드라이브쪽 (아울렛, 여러 레스토랑들, 그리고 호텔) 과도 멀지않았어요. 한 15분정도? 그리고 침대도 너무 깔끔하고 편안했고, 베게도 메모리폼이었으며, 주인분들 너무 친절했어요. 올랜도 비앤비에서 머무실분들 여기 완전 추천합니다.
Me and my girlfriend stayed at Javier and Muriel's for a few days over the break. Javier and Muriel were very nice, some of the nicest people you ever want to meet. They welcomed us into their house and our stay was very comfortable. It is truly home away from home and I would highly recommend them! The house was very nice and clean, and I can't stress that enough! They had all the appliances you will need for your stay as well as a very clean and comfortable room. They were very helpful and assisted us with anything we needed. Great place, lovely people!
My friend and I very fortunate enough to meet Javier and Muriel. They both welcomed us so nicely into their beautiful home. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable. It felt really cozy and just like home :) The bathroom was being shared with the other bedroom, but yet the bathroom was so clean and we never had issues getting ready in the morning. It is a great location and we enjoyed our short commute to Universal Studios. I am happy that my friend from Germany had such an amazing experience with her first stay in the States and for that I can thank Javier and Muriel. Also, their dog Mia is the most amazing dog. She is super friendly and you'll never know that she is even there because she doesn't make any noise :) I can definitely recommend to anyone to stay with Javier and Muriel, you won't be disappointed!
Javier and Muriel were great hosts by helping the area, transportation and all you can think. Even before my stay there. The pictures are very accurate and the neighborhood is very beautiful where you can find almost everything you need. I can highly recommend staying here.
Easy to find, easy to park, immaculately clean, spacious, comfortable, set up for airbnb perfectly! We didn't meet our hosts as we were flying through town and arrived late and left early but they kept in good communication with us to ensure we knew how to get in and that we enjoyed our time as we left. Can't recommend highly enough!
We only meet Javier but he was very nice ans helped us to know a little more about where we can do shopping and other thinks! The house is much pretty than on the photos, the bedroom and the comun areas where very clean and the neighborhood is very nice. In the house we meet two other girls Ho were very friendly. Nothing bad to say, we recomanded this host 100%!!!
The home was very welcoming with clean, comfortable and well appointed accommodation. The instructions on how to get to the house and operate the security system were very clear and easy to follow. The house is located in a nice neighborhood and Javier and Muriel have a binder full of local attractions and places to eat, they are also very happy to provide recommendations. I would highly recommend staying here for your Orlando trip, it's a quick 15-20 minute drive to all of the major attractions and you can't beat the price! I celebrated my birthday whilst staying there and they were even nice enough to get me a happy birthday cupcake!

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!
