Born in Belarus, fall in love with Miami in 1992, and have been here since.
Staying at Larissa's place was great. Very clean, comfortable and safe, and she went out of her way to welcome guests. Her dogs are wonderful, too. I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering staying in the Miami area.
Response from Larissa:
I have been busy, and didn't hear from my friend daughter, perhaps you already found a right place !
All the best!!!
My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful long weekend at Larissa's house. Larissa is wonderful and very helpful, she keeps her house very clean and comfortable. There were two other guests there when we were there and they were nice people, fun to get to know. Would definitely recommend to stay with Larissa!
This was a great place! The host, Larissa, was very hospitable offering us wine upon our arrival and made coffee for us the next morning. Her two dogs, Sugar and Yogi are adorable. It is in a good location, very safe with free parking. Two of us stayed in one of the rooms with a king size bed. It was a great experience and I would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend!
the house is very clean，comfort。dog is friendly。parting is free。
What a great experience! If you would like a clean, cozy room in the middle of Miami, if you would like to talk with a beautiful, kind, honest women about the big questions of the life, then definitly you should go to visit Larissa. See you soon and thank you for everything!
Larissa was an awesome host. She made me and my friend's stay very enjoyable. The best parts? Her dogs and the most comfortable bed in the world (thank you, 3" memory foam). She sure loves to converse with people and sharing funny stories! We were welcomed into her beautifully decorated home with hospitality and kindness. When my friend and I wanted to go to the botanical gardens, she quickly tried to hook us up for free through her good friend! How awesome is that? And when my friend and I stayed out too late unwittingly and enjoyably dancing at 2 gay bars in a row, Larissa was totally fine with me texting her at midnight that we were just going to sleep in the next morning instead of meet her friend at the gardens. Good parking right out front, two lovable high-energy dogs, a newly renovated kitchen for cooking, comfy rooms, accessibility to Trader Joe's, and kicka$$ host made our trip well worth it. See you next time Larissa!
We booked our room in Larissa's townhouse for a Valentine's weekend in Miami. The location was perfect as it was very close to the Biltmore in Coral Gables where we were attending a Tango dance. When we arrived, we were greeted by her two lovely dogs and we immediately made fast friends. Her townhouse was spotless and the master bedroom had it's own bath and king size bed with fluffy pillows. We told her we planned to be out late and it was super easy as she has a keyless entry allowing us to come and go easily. The parking is directly in front of the townhouse so no worries there either. She was a gracious and lovely hostess, who was so interested in our dance that we invited her to join us. I hope our love of tango rubs off on her as she will have many partners! It was all topped off by the lovely café con leche she made us in the morning before we left for our South Beach brunch. I would highly recommend her place and we will definitely go back!
I have stayed at Larissa's home several times for short stays and the place is wonderful. It is VERY clean, organized and well located for my needs. Recommend it to anyone.
I enjoyed Larissa's room and hospitality. I didn't care for the dogs which kept barking at each other like a yelling contest and the wifi was not at all consistent (it worked for maybe an hour on the 2nd night but otherwise it kept shutting off) The internet thing should not be a dealbreaker if you are there for a vacation or have your own wifi hotspot, but it was totally a damper for me as I was there on business.
Otherwise, it was a great place and exactly as advertised.
Larissa was energetic, kind and pleasant, frequently willing to accommodate us. Her comfortable home was welcoming and cozy; one of those where we look forward to coming home to after a long day. The size of both the room and bed were spacious and everything was very clean and tidy. Parking available up front. Thank you.
