Came out to Miami for Dilla Day Weekend and loved everything about our Airbnb. Although we didn't meet Juan Carlos until the last day of our trip, he made us feel very welcome in his home. The space was clean and everything we needed, from towels to cooking utensils, was provided. The bed was huge, comfortable and easily fit two people. The best part about this Airbnb was its location! It was less than a 10 minute walk to all the venues we attended (Bardot, The Stage and LMNT) with countless restaurants and stores, including a Target, in the surrounding area. Wynwood was also a short walk away and a must see for folks visiting in Miami.
JC's place is awesome. I've been in several places thru airbnb and probably this was the cleanest place of all of them. The room is big enough for 2 ppl and the TV in there is a plus. Didn't use the kitchen beside the fridge but seemed clean and with a lot of stuff to cook.
Now let's talk about location. WOW!!! I didn't know Midtown was so cool, design district is so close, wynwood and art district as well.
Just around the corner is a free trolley stop that rides you to omni station, bayside or brickell. Then you can transfer to another free trolley line and get to coral gables, vizcaya/science museum, or go to SoBe for 2 bucks or so.
Getting there from/to airports is so convenient, I took just public transport and was easy from FLL. It's quit a long ride but hey, you can handle it!!!
There are a mall infront of the house, and so many options to grab food or sit for a fancy dinner.
There's a place that opens so early for breakfast and we liked it so much, it is on 29th street is called Enriqueta's If I were you I'd try it. The hop on hop off bus (big bus company) stops right outside the house. If you book some tour from a major tour agency that offers pick you up at some hotel you should choose Hilton Downtown as your location, cause it is close and easy to get there . Juan Carlos, his girlfriend and his uncle were extremely friendly, everything was beyond perfection. This is by far one of my fav stays thru airbnb.
Juan Carlos was a great host. He let us know by e-mail that we could check in early if need be.
The place was very clean and tidy. WiFi code was left on bedside table. He left a couple clean towels out which was a nice touch as we had forgotten towels!
This was a great neighbourhood to stay in between Miami Beach and the airport. Lots of places to eat nearby, a cool club and tonnes of shopping. Our cab to the airport was only $20.
Would stay again!
Juan was a great host. He had everything that we needed for the stay.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We only had a one night stay, but it was a good location easily accessible from the airport. The bed was super comfy which was a welcome relief from our long flights. There appeared to be everything we could need and Juan Carlos was only a phone call away with assistance (we rang on arrival for the door code). The place is homely, quiet and cheerful.
My sister and I stayed in Juan Carlos's guest room for five nights and it was comfortable and convenient. The home was clean and located near many shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance. The AC worked really well and the keyless entry and exit meant that everything worked seamlessly for our stay.
As far as the negative reviews, those seem to be the result of bizarre expectations. For a shared home for an incredibly low nightly price, this room was exactly as advertised and met our needs just fine.
My girlfriend and I were in town for phish Miami New Year's run. We had the master bedroom. Two girls, sisters, had the other bedroom which was smaller. We were relieved to find out that they were in town too for the shows.
You enter from the side. JC will give you a code to get in. We didn't have a lock on the door to our bedroom. But we were with phans so it seemed ok. In any event, JC was very responsive and fixed the lock on the doors to the rooms so we could lock them if we wanted. The master bedroom and the house on a whole, including the bathroom (shared) and kitchen, were clean. The place was adequate for our needs. It's seems good a few nights (2-4) for the price.
The real value in this place is the location. Parking was not a problem at all and its a block from N Miami Ave which is a major thoroughfare that has public transportation. (Free Miami trolley as well as buses). Only 15 minutes from downtown and I suspect only about 30 minutes from the beach.
The area is safe but there did appear to be patches were it felt a little edgy. But it's also about 6 blocks north from what appears to be some of the most hip, artsy and avant guard part of the city. We are from NYC so it's like SoHo meets alphabet city with a Latin feel. Wynwood walls is awesome, Morgan's for brunch, jimmy's kitchen and Wynwood kitchen are all awesome and right there. Gigi's is diagonally across from JC's place and serves food and drinks till 3am
On weekdays and 5am on weekends (there's a club next door - but none of this could be heard from his place, it was quite).
Art galleries, good restaurants and hip bars/clubs all within walking distance as well as public transportation. JC's place was easy to stay at and he was a good responsive host ( we never saw him in the house though). If you don't want to spend a lot, only staying for a couple of days and want to be centrally located in a hip part of town, this place would do just fine.
This is a pretty house. It's very close to the shopping malls and lots of bars not far away from the place. Juan is very helpful and welcome!
It was great for me to stay at this place. It was clean, helpful, and I felt confortable. I'd recomend to staty at this place for everybody who wants to feel confortable and have privacy. Great pleace. I'll come back when I get Miami soon this year.
