I recently visited Miami, Florida.
I stayed in this room for a few nights and the host was amazing. I was one of her test subjects right before she decided to list the room in Airbnb.
If you are looking for a place to stay while in Miami, this room is located in the beautiful area of Fontainebleau Blvd. It is 15 minutes away from the airport, with traffic might be a bit more.
Looking to do some shopping? Dolphin & International Malls are 5 minutes away, and the bus stop is at the corner of this complex. For those of you that like Uber better, it costs $6 dollars to get a ride there. And, recently a row of awesome restaurants opened by Dolphin Mall.
Also, highways [Turnpike/Palmetto/137Extension] are around the corner. You could get to Miami Beach & Downtown area in about 35 minutes, South Kendall in around 25, and Hollywood Beach about an hour. This timings were calculated without rush hour traffic. It is best to avoid it.
The room is well lit, clean, colorful and has access to the balcony. The bed has a queen Tempur-Pedic mattress. I slept like a baby, but if you rather unwind there is a Flat TV w/ Comcast Cable with hundreds of Channels, or you can use the Wifi to get internet access. Also, the room has a tiny fridge, perfect for a few cans of soda and snacks. The microwave is convenient in case you want to warm up some food, but I didn’t use it. I did love that I was able to make coffee the moment I woke up. She provides coffee for the coffee maker. Awesome Detail!
Even though she loves pets, she has a no pets and non-smoking room policy, which is understandable. Occasionally, her daughters visit with their small dogs, but it was at normal hours.
The location of the townhome is super convenient, but a bit tricky to get to her building. However, the instructions she posted on the listing (you will see them once you book) are detailed and will help you get there. The one thing I loved about it was that I had an assigned parking space in front of the door, which was always open for my use.
The one thing people might not like is that you have to go two flights of stairs to get to the room, but for me it was no big deal. It was good exercise. Besides, her rates are amazing.
To get inside, the main door opens to the second flight of stairs, which is common area. Once on top the main townhome and the room, each has a separate entrances. The way to the room is through a glass door, which you could lock.
