Mary Jo is a very kind and flexible host. The room is nice and clean and she has a wonderful garden. Unfortunately, we only stayed here one night, but we would definitely stay here again!
Mary Jo was an amazing host. Very flexible. We only came late due to our delayed flight, but we felt home right away!!! Relaxed in the Jacuzzi and we felt so much better after a long flight. Would definitely book again here next time I will be around.
I could not have asked for a better host in Mary Jo! My husband and I stayed for only one night but wish we could have stayed longer. The private room and entrance was wonderful for privacy. It was clean and very nice, and had what we needed. Mary Jo was so warm and friendly, and we could tell that she had a genuine interest in making sure we enjoyed our time and helped ourselves to what her property had to offer. At the same time, she gave us all the privacy we needed as well. Her yard is a dream yard, and we felt very comfortable lounging and enjoying ourselves. While her place is not close to the big attractions of Miami, having a car makes staying here easy and we felt it was a wonderful and relaxing getaway. Whether you want to just getaway and forget about the hustle and bustle that is life in Miami, or enjoy what Miami has to offer by car--this place is wonderful.
My boyfriend and I stayed with Mary Jo for three days, and had a wonderful time. Mary Jo was a phenomenal host. This was our first airbnb experience, and we were so impressed by the time she has obviously taken to prepare a beautiful and comfortable space. We also had access to the backyard, which is, like the room, impeccably well maintained and designed for guests' comfort. Mary Jo also went above and beyond to help set up a surprise for our anniversary. Throughout the planning, she was very communicative, and really helped make the day special.
The house is a little farther than we had expected (we'd never been to Miami before, so didn't have a great sense of the distances), but easily accessible by a couple of main highways that run the length of Miami. Guests should budget about 30 minutes to drive to most places that aren't in the immediate area. There are a few great restaurants nearby (go to Dr. Limon!), though, and Mary Jo gave excellent recommendations.
Mary Jo's home is obviously very popular (both available rooms were booked all three nights we were there), and she seems to have many repeat guests. All told, we are so glad that we stayed with Mary Jo during our trip to Miami, and would absolutely stay with her again!
Mary Jo and Marlene were wonderful hosts, they were so welcoming and helpful. I was travelling alone so it was nice to feel safe and at ease. I would definitely recommend staying with them. Thanks to both of you.
Did not get to meet Mary Jo as she was out of town. The room was well stocked,very clean.... They have a beautiful pool area with private entrance and bathroom. Everything was perfect, highly recommended!
Very clean room, and gorgeous yard. Mary Jo was very friendly and welcoming (the most friendly airbnb host I've had). The room is small, but perfectly laid out. And the bed is very comfortable, and good pillows too.
We were late arriving, but Mary Jo sent me a message with instructions to settling in.
I wish I could have spent more time here because I could just sit all day in her beautiful yard. Lots of gorgeous plants, so much seating & lounging areas, great pool and hot tub! And also a very friendly little dog.
It was a great start to our trip!
Mary Jo was (email hidden)e place was as described...her partner and friends were lovely.

Mary Jo was an excellent host and provided great service. The room was extremely well kept and clean. The backyard area was beautiful and extremely well designed. Thanks for the great stay!
Thank you Mary Jo! The four months I stayed at your place was one of the best experiences I ever had.Coming from Spain, you are always so respectful, so caring and open. I love the way the large room was kept and the cozy bathroom was my favorite.
I miss the beautiful terrace and especially the pool! I can t wait for the day we have cocolocos together again!
Extremely safe and private.
