Although we only stayed one night the property was cosy. We found the air conditioning unit in the bedroom noisy so had to switch it off. Maria was very helpful and did offer us the option to stay on later so that we could shower and change before we flew home.

We had a great time staying with Maria in Coral Gables. Her apartment is lovely - very well decorated and fitted out in a safe, quiet area. It is not too far from shops and restaurants either by the free trolley, car or on foot (20min walk to Miracle Mile). We found apartment ideally located for trips all over the city, the Everglades and beaches. The apartment is as described and the photos show. We would love to stay again!

Maria & Janelle were very welcoming and helpful upon our arrival. Any questions we came up with were easy to resolve by a quick knock on the door of Maria's house which is adjacent. The apartment was so very different from a hotel with private parking at the front door, Publix and Winn Dixie stores very close and a fully equipped kitchen. Everything that we needed was there, like the abundance of towels and pillows, closets and chests of drawers. We very much enjoyed the experience and highly recommend it for fellow travellers!

This 1 bedroom location is near everything in Coral Gables. I enjoyed my weekend trip and was able to hang out in the apartment in comfort between going out to various sites and a Tango dance at the Biltmore on Sunday. The location is central. The accomodations are clean, comfortable, spacious and have everything that you need.

Janelle & Maria's home is a perfect home base to explore the Miami/LittleHavana/Miami Beach area. It's clean and cozy. Kitchen is well-equipped. They are responsive and check-in was easy and welcoming. Highly recommend their home for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in the Miami flavor!
