About Armando Montero

I've been in Miami nearly all my life. I love the place the weather the people but particularly the ocean. Come and stay at our house, my wife Limby and I will make sure you will enjoy a wonderful stay.

Armando Montero purchased this house in 2006

Why Armando Montero chose Little Havana

Properties like this are hard to find along the river. This home provides a unique opportunity to experience the Miami River as few other waterfront home do.

What makes this house unique

This is an amazing location on an often busy River. We love to watch as cargo ships pulled by tugboats float by just a few feet away from our private dock or sit at sunset a enjoy the beautiful colors and reflection on the water. Very relaxing!

Old historic look and feel

  • 5 of 5

Property was great. Good location, everything just a moments drive away. Did see the wild iguanas and other animals. No noisy or nosey neighbors. Very quiet. Love the old world feel of the place. Even brand new homes need a few things fixed, I can personally say I loved this property. Comfy beds, good layout. And the view of the water was great. Got to see many James bond boats and at night was all the more enjoyable.

The property was in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

I love the house. I think the place needed a little bit of TLC in terms of paint and cosmetic stuff internally. The host was great.

Beautiful home by the water

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautiful, and the host was very helpful. If you are looking for a place to stay with a family or friends in Miami I would highly recommend this property. The only downsides are that the air conditioner does not work very well in the bedrooms. If you are a hot sleeper I would make sure to bring a good fan. The tv in the living room is also very old, and has a tendency to cut out when plugged into a fire tv stick. Regardless this is a beautiful home.

I did see in prior reviews that some people did not have enough cookware or dishes for their stay. This has clearly been addressed by the homeowner, and there are plenty of cups and plates to go around.

Fanastic house in Little Havana

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home since the first day. Needs minor fixes but overall it is a fantastic option in Miami. Not far from main sites like Miami Beach, Key Byscaine... There was one issue with ants and so that the owner made it solve quite quickly.

Wonderful relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in the villa was for 10 days and we had a really relaxing time as we intended. We fished from the boat dock and caught 6, 2 of which were snapper and the other 4 were fish that we didn't recognise. I also caught a crab that looked like a spider crab. We saw a dolphin on 2 occasions swimming around the marina, a 2' 6" iguana walking across our boat jetty and a 3' 6" alligator swimming up the river between the docked boat and the jetty. It was fabulous. We had good weather and BBQ'ed most nights. Although there were sufficient utensils / glasses / cups etc for us, the villa slept 8 people and there were only 5 cups (2 of which were chipped).The TV channels were very restricted with only the basic channels available. The villa was located in a very quiet neighbourhood which suited us very well and we felt safe and comfortable in that location. It is centrally placed for everywhere we wanted to visit, the only problem was the Miami traffic! As stated, we had a lovely relaxing time.

Great stay in a cozy neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The owner, Armando, delivered as advertised. The house was clean with everything in working order. Other than the airplanes flying overhead from the airport the neighborhood is very quiet. The view from the back of the house was nice as well. It was cool to see some big ships pass by and even watch the draw bridge raise up for the larger craft. WI-FI worked good. Just don't have 6 people trying to access and post a bunch of pictures at the same time. Great location for getting into South Beach and back in short time as well as getting over to Dolphin Mall. We enjoyed our stay greatly and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Miami
