THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Winter Park has a variety of things to see and do, we love the neighborhood because of that. Tons of incredible eateries, also great shopping, and the famous park avenue is just a short DRIVE AWAY. Also you can easily jump on I-4 to take you all around the city and hit the world famous attractions, Outlet malls or I-Drive area.

HOUSE RULES are:

- Parking is free, please park on our side of the street, not across the street.

- Lock the front door when leaving, simply press the Schlage Button and remember to turn off the AC wall unit.

- Renters will need to have a fully verified profile to book this guest house through the homeaway's verification system.

- The studio is on a septic tank, please only flush down toilet paper down the toilet. No Femine products, wipes, paper towels or condoms in the toilet. These items block the septic system and if you back up the system you will forfeit your security deposit.

- If you see any issues during your stay please bring it to our attention right away so we can address it during your stay and handle accordingly.

- No question is a silly question please always feel free to ask anything :)

About Muriel Yataco

My husband and I co-host. I am from Colombia and moved to Orlando in 2011. My background is in fashion design but I'm going back to school for ESL. I'm a total extrovert of the relationship and love to entertain. Javier and I both enjoy to travel and like to experience trips through a locals perspective and meet fun people. We've met several in our travels already. We are simple folks and balance each other out. I'm the voice of reason and he's the dreamer, ha!

Javier is from Lima, Peru but raised in Miami, FL. He grew up in South Florida and in 2006 made the move north and now calls Orlando, FL home. His job is in the travel industry, cruise to be exact. He's been been doing it since after college and he loves what he does.

We've been to: Italy, France, Germany all around the Caribbean, parts of Canada, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Australia and all around USA. On our bucket list is Tahiti, Spain, Brazil, discover more of Europe, Japan and the moon!!

We began hosting guests in Oct 2012 on a different platform and it's been a blast! We look forward to hosting guests from different parts of the world. We would share with you tips for shopping, dining and of course the parks. We strive to have your stay with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Also while you're here we would hope you can see the "local side" of what Orlando has to offer. You just might be surprised!

We've hosted guests from: Poland, Argentina, US, Belgium, UK, Guyana, Malaysia, Germany, Spain, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, China, Japan, Delhi, Scotland, Ecuador, Australia, Bolivia, Korea, Japan, Tahiti, Estonia, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, India, Finland, Colombia, Peru, France, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Israel, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Slovenia and South Africa. Where will our next guests be from?

Life motto for us, we are big believers in karma so in our daily lives we try to put out as much positive energy as possible because, "what goes around, comes around!"

Muriel Yataco purchased this studio in 2015

Why Muriel Yataco chose Winter Park

This guest house is in a great area for easy access to all the best things in winter park. As long as you have a car you'll easily move around through the city and reach the world class theme parks such as Disney, Universal Studios, Seaworld and etc. This will be a perfect base for you to move around winter park.

What makes this studio unique

We found our 2nd home last year and we immediately fell in love with the guest house. We knew this would be a perfect setup for our future guests. There's a private entrance and exit, it's completely independent from the main home, it's cute and compact space and finally the location. You're walking distance from Lake Killarney and a short drive away from Park Avenue in Winter Park. We know this space will be hit with our guests.

Winter Park Art Festival Weekend Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this lovely backyard guest house in a quite and very safe Winter Park neighborhood that is close to Park Avenue and near restaurants and shopping. We were in the room only to sleep and shower, but enjoyed the ambiance and the very comfortable Casper bed. The owners were in communication via email before and during the stay and had water and sweets in the room when we arrived. If you are looking for a quite and cozy place to stay this one is for you.

Good location, nice people

  • 4 of 5

The property was great, the perfect size and location. It was clean and ready for us on arrival. The owners made suggestions on activities in the area during our stay, and refunded us without question when we asked to leave one day early. However, after we left we received an email regarding potential damage to the entrance blinds. The approach and subsequent correspondence with the property owners was unprofessional and petty. The overall stay was a good experience minus this final aspect.
