This is a cottage type guesthouse the backyard of my house. It is detached, private and separate from the main house where I live in.
The area is great. Very safe with free street parking. On the corner is a Trolley stop for FREE public transportation. There are also a few neighborhood restaurants to walk to within 2-3 blocks. But if you wish to go to the main strip where there are a cluster of restaurants, bars, clubs, cafes, etc... It is a little more than 1/2 a mile walk. To go by an Uber it is the minimum charge.
The cottage was 100% renovated in 2014. It has a kitchenette with a fridge/freezer, toaster oven, microwave, two stove top burner, flat griddle. A tv is also in there with Cable, Blu Ray/DVD & Wifi. If you are looking for a large place this is not it. It is perfect for 1-2 people to sleep shower and go explore the town. The good thing is that it is new, clean, safe and convenient.
Do NOT be fooled by other low priced places. This location is SAFE and CONVENIENT to get in and out of the city. It is not in little Havana or other sketchy type neighborhoods. The Roads is a classic upscale cluster of houses that are the closest to Brickell Financial district.
