Like the major bus stop is a short 5 minute walk from our house, where to buy a transportation day or week pass, etc. Mostly you will be on your own for getting about. We are very quiet, so we expect that you are also while in our home, of course feel free to party outside the home as much as you wish. We do have a house full of happy, yappy dogs that you can either play with, enjoy, or ignore totally as you like. Dogs are dogs and ours love to bark, whine, howl, and snuggle with humans. We adore them, they make us laugh out loud and love life but you must love and understand dogs to be comfortable here with us. The NeighborhoodThis is a quiet, residential, upscale area in an exclusive part of Miami, called Palmetto Bay, Miami. Safe to walk, safe to bicycle, a nice place to be, only local traffic. Getting AroundWe are a short 5 minutes from the major bus route that takes you to Miami Metro train, downtown in a few minutes, then where ever you wish to go. Travel is cheap, a week's unlimited pass is about $40 and can be purchased also near by the bus stop. One day pass unlimited travel is under $6 and one month is about $100. Driving is difficult now with the continual traffic and construction going on so public transportation is the way to go. There is a free Miami Trolly around downtown Miami once you get there for local shopping and sightseeing. Beaches are on Miami Beach and Key Biscayne just off downtown Miami. The distance is not much but with traffic now days, its minimum an hour driving to the beach. Bus and metro train are the fastest way to go . And the most economical . Other Things to NoteJust across the highway is a shopping area with every kind of restaurant - Seafood, Cuban, Jamaican, Pizza, Subway, Chinese, also a major food market with pharmacy. We are also a short 5 minutes from L A Fitness health spa and we will provide a free 7 day pass for anybody staying 2 weeks or more with us.
