The Space

Killian Acre Culinary Exchange Bed and Breakfast
At Killian Acre we have had travelers from all parts of the world and something we have found most rewarding is cooking and sharing recipes from our countries. I cook my Cuban dishes and our guest theirs. In this relaxed environment we really learn how much we are all alike. Of course this is not required, it’s just something we enjoy and our guests are welcome to participate.
Ranch style "Hacienda Home" in the heart of Miami. The Angela room has a queen size bed with closet space, drawers and a 42” flat screen TV/cable, WIFI and has been recently updated. We have two full bathrooms to be shared by our guests according to their needs. Our home has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen and I love to cook, and you are welcome to use kitchen as needed. Living area of our airy great room include the kitchen, dining, living, and family rooms with a 60" flat screen TV/cable. Our home is on a lavishly landscaped acre with beautiful tropical fruit trees, vegetable garden and flowers, in season.
We are close to some of the best restaurants and movie theaters in town. If shopping is your thing, we are close to some of the best shopping in Miami, Dadeland Mall, The Falls, Merrick Park, Dolphin Mall, and more. We are less than two miles away from the world renowned Baptist Hospital, less than five miles to South Miami and Larkin Hospitals less than 6 miles to Miami Children’s and Kendall Regional Hospitals. We have easy access to all major expressways in the area. Surrounding us are several walking trails, local bicycle routes, parks and The Killian Greens Golf Club, “open to the public", within walking distance. We are 15 miles from the entrance of the Everglades, 25 miles from the Florida Keys, 16 miles to Miami Beach and 10 miles to Key Biscayne. For those interested in flying, we are 4 miles from the Tamiami Airport. Our home offers a beautiful pool area with large gazebo, lounge chairs, outdoor furniture, BBQ and smoker.
Greater Miami is very spread out. Our advice to get the most out of your trip is to rent your own car. Car rental at the airport is more expensive than renting at a national car rental location outside the airport. We have several locations within 3 miles of our home and can give you information if requested. If renting a car is not your thing we have easy access to public transportation. The local bus stop is .4 mile from our home about a 12 minute easy walk. If you need further information on the public transportation system go to (website hidden)
There is plenty of free parking in our secure private gated driveway. I am a native Miamian's therefore know all that our fine city has to offer. Both my husband and I are fluent in English and Spanish. We are available for taking you shopping or dropping you off and picking you up at your destination of choice*.
My husband and I are Harley Davidson aficionados and welcome bikers. We can arrange beautiful bike tours in the area and motorcycle rentals*. Also available to my guest are licensed cosmetologist, masseuse, aqua therapist, manicurist and pedicurist in the comfort of my home at your request. Washer and dryer are available free of charge upon request. Also available are two mountain bikes for rent $10 per day per bike. We also have a GARMIN GPS loaded with our favorite points of interest marked for $5.00 per day. Please tell me ahead so I can reserve them for you.

  • Karen and Hiram were the best hosts I have ever met. It's a wonderful home with a lot of surprises. You can relax by the pool and enjoy the tree filled yard. The home is very close to highway 874 or 821. And it is only a few minutes from US1. Convenient parking and safe environment were important to me. This property has it all. Most importantly, our hosts were very accommodating and very helpful. It was a great experience and a fun one. Will recommend to friends and families, or anyone who needs a short stay within budget in Miami area.

  • My parents stayed at Hiram&Karen's Angela Room for about two weeks. We had a great time there. Hiram and Karen are super nice people. My parents only speak Mandarin Chinese, Hiram and Karen communicated them with sign language and smiles. On the first day, my parents worried about the inconveniences in using the kitchen, because big part of their visiting from China is cooking traditional chinese food for me and enjoy the family reunion. It turns out none of them are worth of worrying. We also had dinner together with other guests for a couple of times. My parents enjoyed the stay very much. We feel very sorry to say goodbye. 谢谢你们!! I'll see you guys soon, Hiram and Karen.

    I strongly recommend Killian Acre for people who visiting Miami, no matter which part of the world you are from.

  • Hiram and Karen are great hosts, friendly, helpful, and they gave us a lot of good advice. House is amazing, probably exactly what you imagine for a vacation in Miami. :) Clean, with everything you need.

    However, if you plan to go here (or anywhere else in Miami, I guess) and you do not have a car, you better have good nerves cause public transportation does not follow any rules or schedules. It is not impossible, but it might give you some hard time.

    We had a great time, thank you for everything! :)

  • Karen und Hiram sind wirklich super nette familäre Gastgeber die auf die Wünsche ihrer Gäste eingehen. Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Gegend in Miami Kendall und die Ausstattung war wie beschrieben. Es gab wertvolle Tipps für Ausflüge und was wirklich davon sehenswert ist. Morgens konnten wir entspannt im Garten frühstücken und der Pool lud zum Schwimmen ein. Durch den täglichen persönlichen Kontakt mit Karen und Hirman konnten wir unser Englisch verbessern ;-) (wir haben es auf jedem Fall versucht). Ohne Frage, beim nächsten Miami Urlaub geht es wieder zu Karen und Hiram, denn kein anonymes Hotel bietet diesen Services wie die Beiden und wir vermissen schon die beiden Schaukelstühle am Pool.

    Karen and Hiram are really super cute familar enter the host to the needs of their guests. The house is situated in a quiet area in Miami Kendall and the equipment was as described. It gave valuable tips for trips and what it is really worth seeing. In the morning we were relaxed breakfast in the garden and the pool inviting for a swim. The daily personal contact with Karen and Hirman we could improve our English;-) (we have definitely tried). Without question, the next Miami vacation it's back to Karen and Hiram, for no anonymous hotel offers these services, as the two of them and we already miss the two rocking chairs by the pool.

  • Just 2 nights that we spent in the house of Hiram and Karen, but it was a wonderful time and a great beginning of our florida roadtrip!
    They are such a open minded, helpful and warm couple that we immediately felt like home! Our room was so cozy, clean and comfortable. The garden is magic! We would recommend this air bnb to everybody!
    If we go to Miami 2nd and 3rd time we'd always love to stay with Karen and Hiram!

  • I had a lovely time at Killian Acre. Karen and Hiram are wonderful hosts. My room was charming. They allowed me to keep my service dog at my side at all times. Aya was well behaved and caused no problems.

    I cannot wait for my next stay. I can't think of anything that would have made it better, except for my boyfriend to have joined me.

  • Karen was AMAZING! Well that is an understatement. She was very patient and helpful with me changing plans 100 times before I arrived. I stayed with there while recovering from an out patient surgery and she coordinated after care for me. Oh yes and she can cook! I really felt like I was home. I would be def recommend this home. And I will be back! I'm telling you this is the BEST place to stay the home is beautiful and lots of room. The surrounding area is nice and safe. Everything is a short drive away. I will be back!

  • The best adress you can stay! If we will come back to Miami we definitively stay again at the home of Karen and Hiram. They are the perfect hosts. They do everything to give you a home not only a hotel. They share their knowledge about the town and the County, best places to visit, recommend good Restaurants and have always an answer for any upcoming questions,.
    Also it's a safe place to live, with no bad feelings about crime .
    And also important for us was, that the house and room was very clean. There is nothing, absolutely nothing which we can complain about. We only can say THANK YOU for all support, the motorcycle tour, the Blackberry return and the caring host.
    We'll come back !!

About
We are semi-retired and love meeting new people. Our children are all out of the nest leaving us with tons of energy to burn. We are active and energetic, love the outdoors, long walks, bike riding, working out and riding our motorcycles. Our kitchen is used daily since we love cooking and eating good food. Of course being from Miami and Cuba we love a tropical style of living, the beach, water sports, tropical fruits, exotic plants and flowers. My husband and I also love music and art , we enjoy local concerts and support the local art community.
