This is actually the second time I've stayed at Irene's - the first was for 3 months in 2011, when I first moved to Miami and was looking for houses, and now for 6 weeks while we wait for our new house to be remodeled. Both times, Irene has made me feel at home. The space is cozy and comfortable, with everything you might need for an extended stay. The apartment consists of a bedroom with en suite bathroom and walk-in closet, and a separate kitchen/eating area with a full-size fridge, vintage sink/stove combo, microwave and table for two. The bed is comfortable - firm, and not saggy in the middle. The AC is a window unit, but it cools the room well. For me, the best part is the small patio - I love sitting out there with my dogs and a cup of coffee in the morning. Irene is super pet friendly - I have 2 dogs and a cat - and the neighborhood is great for walking the dogs. Very quiet and safe. The parking is convenient along the street in front of the house. Private entrance to the apartment through the patio. The location is super convenient for me - close to the children's hospital where I work, as well as to shops & restaurants in South Miami & Coral Gables. Irene is very easy to get in contact with via text/phone, and has been very helpful and responsive. This is not the Ritz, but she will definitely make you feel comfortable and at home. Highly recommend. Thanks, Irene!

This is a really cute 1b1b space with separate full kitchen (there is a microwave you can't see). I really love the vintage stove/sink combo. If you hate cats maybe this isn't the place for you but you hardly see them. Yes there are ants outside but this is FL. There is a private entrance & porch. Did I mention the walk in closet? Great location close to Freeway and minutes from Coral Gables or South Miami. Liked it so much I moved to the neighborhood. Irene is always just a text away. Starbucks and McD just 2 blocks away. I can't wait to try the Carolina Ale House. Winn Dixie is also in the same shopping center. I would use the laundromat tucked in the mall because the one on Bird does not have AC but it stays open late. Having fun getting to know the area. Don't run over the ducks!

I am a Pediatric ICU traveling nurse and needed housing for my assignment. The only positive was the proximity to work. I wouldn’t stay here again. Arrival I rang the bell and waited a few minutes while I stared at a porch that looked completely different/dirty, and not sure which way to get to the attached apartment door. She appeared looking surprised, pointing to where she said she leaves the keys and info sheet. I didn’t find it clean but just wanted it to work. The spices, sink, floor, drawers and utensils were dirty. There was hair in the shower and old linens/towels. I sucked it up, used my own linen, and decided to clean myself. Issues I encountered Ants- asked me to re-caulk her tub (Mitru said no for me) Broken stove burner- “not a priority" TV channels similar to antenna vs the advertised premium cable Beehive on neighbors house was very close and left unresolved Stray cats sleeping and playing with yarn ball outside my door, walkway, and porch Price gouged last 30 days- She told me her flat rate before booking and I repeatedly reminded her to no avail Unreliable shower temperature More Drama Throughout Irene went away one week and allegedly, there were issues with her alarm. She called me and asked me to alert her every time I entered/exited. After dealing with this and multiple issues I wanted out. I asked if she would waive/reduce the short notice fee and she got very offended, making communication difficult. Once we were unable to come to a compromise, I gave 30 days notice and she stated that changing the reservation was disrespectful and inconsiderate of her financial needs. I was simply following Airbnb policies. She told me about the male nurse who reserved 6 months, stayed only 4, and offered to pay the difference. I felt so swindled. Once Irene began using Airbnb as our method of communication, I used it exclusively instead of text. She then complained that Airbnb messages were too taxing for “busy professionals.” When I stated a concern/asked a question, I got nasty letters back. In different letters she suggested I lack maturity, experience, kindness, and other nonsense that was irrelevant to my stay. It was toxic and in the end I stopped responding. By checkout I had no interest in speaking to her. I saw her, was very short, dropped the keys in their place and left. Even after checking out, I still got a rude message from her lecturing me about how I should’ve handed her the key and notified her of my departure. I was surprised by her expectations because I left by check-out time and she was asking me for a courtesy that I did not receive on my arrival, as mentioned earlier. In retrospect there were several other issues I shouldn’t have tolerated, unfortunately I’m unable to express them here. I only have 500 words to explain. I wanted to forget but couldn’t go without sharing my opinion.

While I completely expected a negative review from you, Kem, I find your misleading future guests truly reprehensible. My pictures and information are completely accurate. In fact all of my guests, except for you, have been pleasantly surprised at the upgrades, amenities, cleaniless and attention. Because you're intentional about discrediting a business that I have had for years, I will ask Airbnb to revise this review based on the prolific amount of documentation to the contrary. Your words and actions are neither kind, collaborative or accurate, which is quite a shift from the Airbnb culture I promote.

I had the pleasure of staying here for 6 months during a hospital contract and wouldn't hesitate to stay longer if the road weren't calling me onward :) The neighborhood is tucked next to a canal and offers perfect puppy walking and cycling opportunities while enjoying the colorful Miami architecture. Attractions and businesses were well within walking range and I didn't even scratch the surface of what entertainment the locale had to offer. My hostess and her partner were attentive, responsive, and made me feel like part of the family with gifts of delicious (and gigantic) green skin avocados and invitations to enjoy their company while exploring the city. Thanks for everything and expect to hear from me again should my career return South once again :D Best wishes!
