Other Things to Note
Should you wish to have a gourmet meal, they are available upon request.
must enjoy your stay! :o)
As soon as you walk through the door, you experience Michael and Caroline's warmth and hospitality. They are two wonderful people, who are happy to engage you in conversation and helpful tips of surrounding areas, though are not intrusive when you need some privacy. Caroline is also an incredible cook, as I was lucky to experience two of her dinners (her muffins are excellet as well!). They also had a variety of breakfast food available for me as well.
As the other reviews have stated, the room is private and comfortable, with a private entrance to the back patio. I was in town for business and Michael and Caroline were more than gracious in welcoming me to use the patio space to work on my laptop most afternoons/evenings. The dock space is also a great place to relax after a long day.
The neighborhood is very centrally located to many areas of Miami, and there are restaurants and a general store within walking distance. There is also a Publix grocery store about a 3 min drive away.
I will definitely stay with them should the space be available the next time I'm in Miami. See you soon Michael and Caroline!
This was our first experience with airbnb, and it was great. Caroline and Michael were fantastic hosts! The room was exactly as pictured, and the bed was very comfortable. Caroline made some fantastic meals for us and had coffee and light breakfast available to us every morning, which was something I was not expecting. The location was great for getting around, right off the freeway. Michael helped us find a really good snorkeling crew in the keys, which we really appreciated. We had some fun evenings with them, but they were very quiet otherwise and respectful of our privacy. Caroline made sure to ask frequently if we had any extra needs. We felt really pampered here. We truly loved our stay here and would not even consider another place if we return to Miami. Thank you both again!! We miss you!!

Caroline and Michael's place was the ideal place to start our Florida vacation with our baby. It is a welcoming, clean, very baby-friendly place and location-wise great as it is just off the Palmetto Expy which you need to get on to go to Miami (Beach).
In Miami Lakes itself, you can get some groceries and dinner, other than that there does not seem to be much. We stayed three nights and got freshly baked muffins and yoghurt from Caroline the first morning and yummy bagels on the last. There was also great coffee made by Michael for breakfast. The shared patio is lovely, overlooking a manmade lake. If you want to chat and get some tips, Caroline and Michael are there but are also willing to give you privacy. Only downside for some might be that the room is right next to the kitchen and the walls are thin. So be aware that you are living in someone's home. All in all, very good value. We would stay again!
Caroline and Mike were the best hosts. I am very grateful to have chosen them for my first airbnb experience. Not knowing what to expect, this was a great start.
I was greeted with caramel cupcakes, but being as crazy as I am I do not like caramel. No worries, I was offered a very delicious banana muffin (more my style) and a nice glass of iced tea.
If I ever find myself in need of a place to stay in the Miami area again, I would not hesitate to book at Casa Caroline.
Caroline and Mike are not only the best host but also the best and nicest people we have ever met. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. Their house is really nice and it smells really good too. Neighborhood is safe and in a prime location. There are restaurants and shops with in walking distance and downtown miami or ft lauderdale beach is only 20 minutes drive. Also Caroline makes really good breakfast in the morning. Also loved the cup cakes she made to welcome us. We would definitely stay with them if we ever visit Miami again.
Aww, thank you Hardik and Rashma :O) you were perfect guests, and it would be our pleasure to have you stay with us again. Thank you very much for the gift, it is already set up and the house smells even better, lol. We will think of you often as we look at the beautiful light. You two are very sweet, it was very nice to meet both of you. Caroline and Michael. :O)
Caroline is the best host ever, and her husband one of the best, kind man I have ever met. Me and my friend enjoyed every second of it. From second we stepped it, it was just magic, and they treat us more than they actually had to. If you ever want to book it, do it with no doubt, you won't regret, and you will enjoy the view of the lake in the back, and enjoy the breakfast she makes, and her husband makes the best coffee in the morning, basically not a typical place you will stay. Words cannot describe how much I love and respect them both. Thank you so much for the host, world need more good people like you !
I stayed with Caroline and Michael last week and had a really great experience. Caroline was incredibly welcoming and open and also very respectful of private time as well. Her banana bread is absolutely delicious and since being spoiled there I'm now hooked on ice tea. The room was very spacious and the walkout onto the little patio area for coffee in the morning was an extra treat. They have many lovely cats and the place is so large it never felt like it was too busy. It was about 25-30 minutes to the Miami airport and getting around was very easy.
Overall I had a great stay with fantastic hosts
