“Excelente trato y cumplió con todo”
Todas las cosas en la casa funcionaban bien, la ubicación apropiada y el barrio muy tranquilo. Gracias por todo Raul !!
We rented the house for 5 days and it was great. It was located near a lot of big malls and restaurants. The house itself was very cozy. Next time we go to Miami we'll surely be renting it again!! Thx Raul for the great service
“Good price but some things are missing”
We stayed with 3 adults for one week in this house in little havanna. The place is very nice, neer to calle ocho und near to the bus stations. There are are a few good shops to get good things to cook and eat at calle ocho. We enjoyed that. The neighborhood is ok, but sometimes loud, espacially when you have the room in the back of the house. We had no car in Miami but there are two busstops near the house 8th Street and 1st Street that brings you to downtowm. The way to Miami Beach and South Beach is very long because you have to change the bus or Metromover and there is often a horrible traffic jam on the bridge to South Beach. It took us always minimum 1 hour and max over 2 hours to get to the beach. If something is missing we just wrote an e-mail to raul and the housekeeping fixed it. So that was fine. But there were also a few things that we missed, for example to more chairs to sit outside. Four people could live in the front of the house and only to chairs to sit outside? The sleepingroom in the back of the house don´t have a possibility to make the room dark, only white curtains are there. So we always wake up very early. It is also not possible to open every door or window in the house...we don´t like air-con so it was hard to get fresh air in the house. The Kitchen, the living room an the bathroom got everything you need but the house was not really clean when we arrived. First we had to clean the kitchen... there was a lot of dust and fat. The floor looked clean but after our first day we had black feet and had to wear shoes all the time instead of walking barefoot in the house. The worst things are the shower curtain and the hammock: they are full of mildew!! So the result: Nice house, good place and good price but a few things are missing an some things are really dirty.
Response from the owner Everything was clean as always before their arrival. Look at my other reviews. I supervise the cleanings myself. They even told me specifically after arrival that the kitchen was perfect but only needed two small towels to dry some dishes they had used. By the second day of their stay my maintenance person observed these guests outside in the lawn barefoot coming in and out of the house. This is before they complained that their feet got dirty. There are two chairs in the small table in the outside porch. I don't put more than that as it is not necessary. There were plenty of chairs inside as well. They even wanted to move the 4 chairs in the back of the property with a table and a huge umbrella to the front lawn which i found a bit odd. We found the hammock on the grass where the sprinklers are after their stay, and when we went in to clean the bathroom we found it completely wet, towels, even the rug. They were here for a week and it looked like they spent a month without cleaning. They broke my bathroom towel holder, and even requested to stay two hours past checkout time, which I allowed, but it was a huge inconvenience. So basically nice guests but kind of dirty.
“Nice stay in Little Havana "Calle Ocho"”
My husband and I stayed here with our 5 month old baby for our first family vacation. The house was very spacious and met all of our needs including a portable playpen provided by the owner Raul. We maintained contact with Raul through email (liked that the house had WiFi!) who always replied promptly and made us feel welcome. The house was a great location for anyone who has a car to visit the Miami sites like Vizcaya museum, South Beach, the Everglades, Key Biscayne, Fairchild gardens and Monkey Jungle. We also enjoyed Little Havana and felt secure in the house with its gated parking. Overall, a nice place to stay!
“I loved it...I felt at home in a heartbeat.”
The house is beautitul,the porch and the little garden,too. Everything in it you need to have a good time. Sitting on the porch ,the wonderful warm night,having a little tasty red-wine...such is life. Raul the owner is such a nice and helpful guy. I gonna take it again, thank you.Liz
“Very nice stay”
Raul, thanks for all! You can rent this house with closed eyes, you will not be disappointed. A very nice and lovely house and a very good place. Ideal for family or two couples. Je conseille la location de cette maison pour les couples / famille qui désirent visiter Miami. Elle est très bien placée et vous êtes à deux pas de Calle Ocho. Raul est une personne formidable et est là en cas de besoin.
“Very nice stay!”
We really enjoyed our stay in Miami. The house is spacious and fully equipped. The location is good, near Downtown and Miami Beach but at the same time in a quiet residential area. We didn`t meet Raul in person but he answered all my emails promptly. Thanks Raul!
Thank you so much for opening up your home to us. We had an unexpected layover in Miami which really threw a kink into our plans. With your help, we were able to relax and enjoy our return back to the States with peace and serenity. Thank you again and we hope to see you again! Rachael
I went with a few teammates for a mini vacation before the start of school. I was a little skeptical of the area at first but the residence is gated, which made me more comfortable. The place isn't too far from south beach.Also, there are plenty of shops around the house. Will definitely be staying here when I visit again.
“A summer cottage in the city!”
Raul makes you feel like family (his beautiful mom even stopped by to make sure everything was in order...not in intrusive way...)! The house is historic and shows some age, it was as described and very clean. The best thing about the "casita" is the feeling of being home in a familiar cottage setting. Raul takes pride in the small and helpful details. This is a residential neighborhood, we even borrowed a cup of sugar from the neighbor! We shared the property with another guest in the back area and it was helpful that Raul informed us of his arrival. The only disappointment was the hammock on the porch,it appears to be there for decoration and unusable. There is a notebook with helpful information about the Little Havana and lots of brochures about Miami. We walked two blocs up to Calle Ocho during the day but not at night. There is a small back yard with no pool or nearby beach. Most of the streets are "one way" and access to the freeway to South Beach is easy. Bring your own groceries and pick up fresh fruit and vegetables from the vendors' truck down the street. The rental is fine for "home-base" if you do not like hotels.
