  • Javier and Muriel were great hosts! They were extremely friendly and very quick to communicate. Their house was exactly as expected - comfortable, clean, and accommodating. They offered suggestions for places to go in Orlando and were very flexible with our arrangements. I would definitely stay here again if I visit Orlando!

  • We were a group of four on a 10 day vacation and road trip. Javier & Muriel's place was the best place we stayed in during our vacation. Everything was perfect and you can notice even the smallest of the things. Javier & Muriel were not there when we arrived and we were reaching on Christmas eve. When we entered we were greeted with a lit Christmas tree and some chocolates; it felt great. They put a lot of effort in keeping place awesome, and you will enjoy it.

    Their place is ideally located close to all the amusement parks. We really enjoyed staying there.

    Thanks again Javier and Muriel, wish we could meet you guys.

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!
