Cynthia made us feel welcomed by leaving detailed instructions on the house access and the amenities of Coconut Grove. We loved the house and interior design and the location was fabulous. We were there for a sailing regatta and the proximity to the yacht clubs was perfect!
I only stayed with Cynthia for one night, but so wish I could stay for longer! Her house is very inviting, warm and I felt so cozy and comfortable there. Everything was very clean, the room is tastefully decorated and the backyard area is lovely to relax in, with a hammock and trampoline there. Cynthia and her family were very welcoming and considerate. One of the best airbnb experiences I had so far, too bad it was so short!
Cynthia was really nice and the house is exactly as described, good walking location to tons of restaurants.
Awesome home and room, beautifully decorated and only a couple minutes walk from a ton of restaurants, shops, and bars, as well as only 10 minutes walk to the waterfront.
The family was very welcoming and made you feel at home. I would absolutely recommend staying there.
Beautiful room in Coconut Grove!
Cynthia always responds promptly to messages, so you know there's someone there making sure you're ok. She is so welcoming and immediately makes you feel at home.
I was traveling on my own and felt so much more safe knowing that I was staying at Cynthia's! She truly wants you to have an amazing time! I can't thank her enough for being so kind and caring. Wish her the best always! Cheers to being an awesome host!!
Very close to Cocoanut Grove or "the Grove" as it is referred to, but approach from Main St. Breakfast offerings were random. Best to go out. We made an effort to actually meet Cynthia and found her very pleasant. Her home was neat and tidy.but unfortunately I with my sensitive nose could still detect a prior cat. We had the joy of having our own for 23 years,so we are not opposed to those animals. Bed is probably more comfortable for one.
John and his wife were a lovely couple, but to clarify: I don't typically offer breakfast nor do guest expect to have meals, although all my guests are welcome to anything in the fridge and pantry, as well as open use to the kitchen. As for the smell of a cat; I have lived in the home for nearly five years and have had all the vents cleaned. Not one previous guest out of the nearly 100 that I have hosted have ever complained about this issue. Again, John and his wife are welcome back anytime, but should not expect to have breakfast ready for them :)
i love love love cynthia and her family.
i want them to adopt me. the room was perfect and they r perfect !
