We are very easy to get along with and enjoy sharing our little "Mouse Pad" where one can have a happy experience that won't break the bank. Having a hand in someone discovering Miami for the first time, or who simply just wants a get away to find relaxation on the beach, has been one of the great pleasures for this traveler.
