I am a first time Airbnb user and I must say, Michael made my stay very pleasant. The room was nice and cozy and he provided me with maps and tourist advice throughout my stay. The best part of my stay has to be the amazing Columbian coffee Michael prepared for me in the morning. I would definitely recommend staying with Michael and his family. It was a very unique and fun experience in comparison to a standard hotel. I will definitely be using Airbnb after this positive experience!
Michael was very accommodating if me despite the last minute changes that came up due to the delays of my flights. Very helpful as well. The room was nice and cozy as advertised..will definitely be returning next time I'm in Miami
This was my first Air bnb experience for a quick visit with my son at UM, and it was a very positive one. Michael and his wife were very responsive to inquiries and made sure I could access a key even though they were both out when I arrived. Room in guest cottage was clean and comfy. There was a ceiling fan, which was sufficient for my visit, and a remote control A/C unit, which I didn't need. I didn't interact much with my hosts but when I did they were friendly and helpful. Lots of good karma.
Very convenient to UM. No problems at all. Very comfortable bed. Pictures and description are accurate. Good neighborhood. When I return to Miami I will book Mike's room again if it's available!
I was in town for the (website hidden) marketing confrence in downtown Miami. I decided to go last minute and everything was sold out. Found Michael on airbnb and stayed at his place for 5 days. It was delightful and quiet. It was very safe, which is important in Miami. Michael and his wife are delightful people and great host. Although I got a rent-a-car, this place is close public transportation that will take you pretty much anywhere you want to go in Miami at least. I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to staying there again.
I stayed for 4 days at Michael's home! Loved it! The neighborhood is one of the Safest. The room is cozy and nice. And above all Michael is really an amazing person :)
Michael and his wife are delightful hosts. My Mom stayed with them and was so happy, relaxed and slept well. The room was clean, comfortable and she was jsut thrilled. A great couple! Very kind and warm. I highly reccomend them.
I really enjoyed my stay here with Michael and his family. The residency and its surroundings was really safe which was something really important since I was travelling alone. It was a nice change from all the hotels I've stayed in. It's not for you if luxurious service is something you're looking for.
Micheal was very welcoming. The room was very comfortable and had good karma. I would rent there again.
Michael was out when I arrived but his 16 year old daughter showed everything in a confident manner. Michael is an excellent host and helped me with any queries.
It is a cheap clean room with a private bathroom (and fridge) where you can come and go as you please. I found it relaxing and quiet.
I would call the style shabby shiek.
I had supper one evening with the Malone family. There was lively conversation and a good veggie meal. I enjoyed their company. They are an interesting intelligent family. This adds another dimension to a holiday................
The 73 bus runs every 30 minutes at the end of the road and South Miami metro station is 15 minutes walk down a well lit street.
I hope to stay there again.
I would highly recommend it because of the home comfort and relaxed family atmosphere.
