About this listing
Well lit, spacious room with shared bathroom and a small walk-in-closet, offers the privacy you need while you enjoy of the beautiful view that our tropical neighborhood offers. Less than 10 minute drive to 3 of the best beaches in North Beach!
The "Sunny" room has an independent access on the side of the house. It features a queen size bed, a table, a small desk, a night table, a walk-in-closet to hang your clothes, and three chairs; the common area in the garage to which you have full access any time has a large fridge, an electric kettle, a microwave and a toaster. You are all set to enjoy your breakfast, heat up your meals and keep your beverages cool!
You can access your room from the side of the house, into our polished cement floor garage and then through the bathroom you can enter the Sunny room.
Interaction with guests
Languages spoken: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian. We are mostly traveling on business but when we are around we are glad to help our guests with common questions they may have about the city and the area, we also enjoy hanging out with them in the kitchen if the opportunity arises, and on occasion going out to tour Wynwood, a jazz club or any other cool area in town since we feel we are tourists ourselves in this continuously changing Miami, a dynamic town that non-stop attracts visitors, artists and investors alike from all over the world.
Biscayne Park is a lush village considered to be a bird sanctuary as well. Its streets will make you feel you are walking in a tropical park, residents are kind and quiet, you will see them walking their dogs, jogging, riding bikes or strolling with their kids any time of the day... and night! since it is very safe arpund here. We have our own police station, so the neighborhood is patrolled 24/7, there is the Ed Burke park where you can go work out or just chill watching kids play basketball or toddlers run around the playgrounds. It is truly one of my favorite places when I am in Miami :)
If you have a car you can park it in our driveway, parking is free in the whole hood. There are a few Metrobus lines (URL HIDDEN) also running north-south and for about $2.50 you can get to the Aventura Mall north, or downtown Miami south (notice that you may have to purchase your bus pass at a supermarket or other store before taking the bus). You can also transfer at the Omni Station to go East to South Beach or at Government Center, downtown Miami, to go pretty much anywhere else, notice though, that public transportation in Miami may not be reliable so you may be better off renting an inexpensive car at Alamo or any other low cost car-rentals. UBER and LIFT are also available in Miami and they are great options if you have the apps on your phone.
Other things to note
We normally stay on the left half of the house while you will be staying on the right, the property is about 2000 sq feet so there is plenty of space and privacy for all. The kitchen is the meeting point for us all when conversation and food preparation are a possibility and we can fit it in our busy lives... I enjoy cooking for our guests whenever I can.
We welcome guests that are independent-minded, respectful, able to maintain cleanliness, and silence at all times, chilled world-travelers with whom we can share travel experiences and exchange info about cool places. Smoking and pets are not allowed in the perimeters of the property, moderate to low alcohol contents are tolerated. This room is equipped with everything you need to fix breakfast or heat up meals in the microwave, there is no access to the kitchen unless we arrange to have dinner together, we like to share this space when work is slow and we can afford the time.
1) No person other than the registered guests are allowed in the house.
2) Kitchen is not available, your room and common area have everything you need to hear up meals, boil water and keep beverages cool.
3) Fresh sheets and towels are facilitated as a courtesy, so at check-out we would much appreciate them to be placed in the baskets provided.
4) Parking is allowed in front of the house as long as the two cars in our driveway are not blocked. No parking on the lawn.
World-travelers who enjoy meeting cool people to share a meal, exchange experiences, or just chill under the moon in tropical Miami. Some of our favorite countries are NZ, Portugal, Thailand, Brazil, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic; and our preferred towns include London, Buenos Aires, Lima, Santiago, Lisboa, Panama City and Cabarete. We love music, art, nature, cooking and dining out... did I forget to mention traveling? ;) We both embrace the middle ages principle of always giving travelers a place to stay and a meal to eat.
