Nice and cosy place to stay. It really give a feelings of being like a local in the neighborhood. The host Javier and Muriel were great! They were friendly and helpful in the request u made which I managed to cook in the kitchen and did some laundry. They even prepared a booklet of places to visit and attractions for the visitors. Thou the neighborhood is slightly quiet but is still safe.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Muriel's home. It was beautiful and definitely worth the price. I have used Airbnb several times in the past but this was my first "shared home" experience. Everything went well. Met some awesome people from both inside and outside of the country. We all had our separate bedrooms and those of us who were not in the master bedroom shared be bathroom. Huge living areas, kitchen, and dining room that provided more than enough space for us all. Took Uber everywhere so it was a nice location. 5-10 minute Uber to Downtown Denver. Also took Uber to the outlet malls, SeaWorld, and Downtown Disney. 20-30 minutes each. Of all of my Airbnb hosts, Muriel's communication was the clearest. She was so thorough in the messages prior to arrival and even sent us a message as soon as we checked in. There are random post it notes around the home labeling what each area is and which guest it is for (bedrooms). Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful, clean home. Can't wait to visit Orlando again and choose your place.

Response from Muriel:
Thank you Essence for the great review! Glad we were your 1st "shared home" home experience and you enjoyed it. Yes Uber / Lyft are great options to move around the city. Come back again anytime, maybe this summer as Universal and Disney are opening up new attractions!

This wonderful place changed my mind about Orlando. Located in a central yet quiet part of the city, it has everything you need: parks, lakes, shops, eateries. Perfect if you dont have a car. I took a bike and it was very nice. Accommodation is clean, host is always ready to help and set up is very easy. Felt like home! Thank you and if love to be back. Elena

Response from Muriel:
Music to our ears. The neighborhood is pretty awesome. Yes there is a lot more to Orlando than simply the theme parks. So happy you got to use our bike. It's a great way to experience the city like a local. Come back again anytime.

I am from Colombia and moved to Orlando in 2011. My background is in fashion design but I'm going back to school for ESL. I'm a total extrovert and loves to entertain. I enjoy to travel and like to experience trips through a locals perspective and meet fun people. My husband and I have met several in our travels already. We are simple folks and balance each other out. I'm the voice of reason and he's the dreamer, ha!

My husband was born in Lima, Peru but raised in Miami, FL. He grew up in South Florida and in 2006 made the move north and now calls Orlando home. His job is in the travel industry, cruise to be exact. He's been doing it since after college and loves what he does.

Mia our shih-tzu / lhasa apso is the greeter of the home. When guests arrive she must sniff you out for approval. No worries she has yet to not approve any of our guests. Also unlike small dogs, she is not a barker. Instead she's more of a cuddler by your side type of pup. She likes to be taken out 3 times a day and must taste test what you're eating ;) She'll be your new friend while you're here.

We've been to: Italy, France, all around the Caribbean, parts of Canada, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Australia and all around USA. On our bucket list is Tahiti, Spain, Brazil, All over Europe, Japan and the moon!!

We began hosting guests in Oct 2012 it's been a blast! We look forward to hosting guests from different parts of the world. We would share with you tips for shopping, dining and of course the parks. We strive to have your stay with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Also while you're here we would show you the "local side" of what Orlando has to offer. You just might be surprised!

We've hosted guests from: Poland, Argentina, US, Belgium, UK, Guyana, Malaysia, Germany, Spain, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, China, Delhi, Scotland, Ecuador, Australia, Bolivia, Korea, Japan, Tahiti, Estonia, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, India, Finland, Colombia, Peru, France, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Israel, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Slovenia and South Africa. Where will our next guests be from?

Life motto for us, we are big believers in karma so in our daily lives we try to put out as much positive energy as possible because, "what goes around, comes around!"
