About the property

Centrally Located Gem

This unit is next to the main house and has a private access with a beautiful garden. It gives the perfect setting for the best vacation in a quiet location. In the outside you will find a barbecue with sitting arrangements accompanied by the great Florida Weather. The unit has been completely redone and we insure that everything is in impeccable condition. It's perfect for a small group, but we do not recommend this unit for more than 5 people because it will take away from the comfort the property has to offer. If you are looking for a larger unit we recommend you to book the main house that is for 12 + people. The link for that property is: http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p4014861

Worst rental on VRBO !

  • 1 of 5

This was positively our worst rental ever on VRBO!

The 'apartment' was nothing but a converted garage, dark and narrow.

The 'kitchen' had a total of 12" of counter space, useless for any meal preparation. Coffee maker and toaster occupied about 1/2 of the only table. Stove was dirty. The sink had no garbage disposal, and of course no dishwasher.

There was no washer/dryer a huge inconvenience.

The outdoor space was extremely noisy because the AC units for both apartments in the building were located next to the space where you would like to sit down to relax. In addition the unpaved area on the back was full of garbage.

The bathroom was so small only one person could be on it at one time.

There was a second bedroom with four bunk beds, implying a total potential occupancy of six persons, with a single door - a potential code violation.

I immensely regret having rented this apartment.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience, but please don't guide yourself by this person's review. If you read all the other reviews you will see that not a single one displayed the same concerns that this person did. Just like for every product/service there's always going to be someone that is going to go out of their way to write an unfair review that is filled with false information. The unit is exactly as described a 2bed/1bath that can accommodate up to 7 people with the sofa bed. We ensure that the property is in absolute immaculate condition before we render it rentable for other guests. With that being said, this is not a hotel. The guest demanded new towels and linens whenever he was out of clean ones and also demanded to have the property cleaned regularly without paying any additional fees. Without a doubt, one of the most difficult people I've had the chance to work with and I manage 22 properties! The property is exactly as described on the listing.

A cute cottage in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in Miami helping my son, who attends the University of Miami, move into a new apartment for school this year. The house is in a good location for enjoying shops and restaurants in the Coral Gables area. You will need a car to get around. It is decorated nicely and had all the necessary supplies that we needed for our stay. I wouldn't recommend the house for more than one couple, because the second bedroom has two bunk beds. It would be great for a couple with 1-4 children....although there is only one very small bathroom.

Loved it! Great house, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

My mom was visiting from my country and I was in charge of renting a house here in Miami and Orlando. We had a bad experience in Orlando and we were already afraid of what we were going to find. My mom was really happy and amazed of such cute, nice and clean house! It has a little kitchen with pans, plates and utensils ready for you to cook whatever you want, towels were provided, and a little surprise awaits for you inside the fridge! The sofa turns into a bed, comfortably up to 8 persons can sleep here. Thank you Pablo and family for such an amazing welcome, we really enjoyed your house.

Good but needs some uplift

  • 3 of 5

Positives: Location, 5 minutes walk to Publix, good for 4-5 people. Nice covered patio, nice garden. Everything is as shown at the web site. Towels and linens are clean. Free parking spot. Beds are confortable.

Negatives: No dishwasher, you have to wash by hand, which is not good in vacation. The kitchen countertops is very small, There are no hangers in the bathroom to hang towels, clothes etc. The air-conditioning is noisy.
