I hope I have already clean up, and reserve our wild impressive for you. Also, we leave a present for you hope you can feel our hospitality.
We really like J&M's house as well as their personality. The house is at a very convenient location, 5 minutes to I-4 freeway, 10 minutes to downtown Orlando, 30 minutes to Disneyland as well as Universal studio. Also there are several lakes around the house, amazing view.
As for the kitchen, this is the best kitchen I have ever seen before. All the device and equipment are super good and brand new, I like cooking, and really enjoy staying at kitchen and cook for my family.
Talk about J&M, they are so kind. They always reply emails very quick and always answer all my tiresome questions by very detailed information. They prepared a very detailed manual about bars, restaurants, sightseeing, attractive spots at the neighbourhood. They even left a very nice chocolate and champagne to welcome us to share their house, what a wonderful couple!
I will definitely share J&M's house if I go to Orlando again, and highly recommend you to have J&M's house to start your pleasant journey.
All the best to J&M,
Michael, Jenny and Cindy
We hade a very nice time at Javiers and Muriels place. The home was very clean and in great condition! Javier and Muriel were very helpful and gave us lots of tips on things to do in Orlando. They were also very quick to respond to our questions.
The moment we entered the home, my two friends and I were amazed. It is a beautiful and clean space that instantly made us feel welcome. A little note and some chocolates in the kitchen greeted us as well. Very nice touches. We were already amazed by the photos in the listing, but seeing the place in person is just astounding. We took great care in making sure to not disturb the home too much; we took off our shoes at the door and carried our bags instead of wheeling them around. The neighborhood is just as beautiful. One of my friends is a runner and felt safe and definitely loved the scenic area.
There was plenty of space for the three of us. The kitchen is roomy and well equipped. We cooked some pizzas when we weren't out eating. The washer and dryer in the garage are god-sends as well. The living room was a perfect place for us to unwind as well. We watched some TV while also playing some Minecraft on our laptops together, thanks to the wifi.
Our main goal of our vacation was to go to Harry Potter World at Universal. The location is great, about a 15 min drive through route 4.
Javier was always in touch, making sure we had all the information we needed. He even provided a much appreciated tip that we get the ticket for the Hogwarts Express Train that travels between the parks at Universal! I never felt badgered at all. In fact, I felt even more relaxed knowing that our host was readily available.
We loved our stay at Javier and Muriel's home. We absolutely recommend it for anyone who wants a very relaxing home away from home near downtown Orlando and the parks.
Javier and Muriel own a lovely property in a great neighbourhood. The accommodation matched our expectations completely. The decor is fresh, contemporary and extremely well maintained. During our stay everything was kept clean and tidy. The beds are very comfortable - in fact, when I am back in the UK, I will be buying the same pillows. Javier and Muriel are welcoming, friendly and extremely caring. This truly felt like home-from-home. By the way - Mia, the dog, is adorable. Great hosts, fantastic accommodation, superb neighbourhood. Highly recommended.
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 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?
