About Muriel Yataco

My husband and I co-host. 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 of the relationship and love to entertain. Javier and I both enjoy to travel and like to experience trips through a locals perspective and meet fun people. We've 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!

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

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

We began hosting guests in Oct 2012 on a different platform and 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 hope you can see 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, Japan, 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!"

Muriel Yataco purchased this house in 2008

Why Muriel Yataco chose College Park

This home was our first home Javier purchased it back in 2008 and did a complete remodel. We've put our personal touches and have put a lot of love into the home over the years. Javier is a tech person and he would say this is a modern home, smart thermostat, smart lights, solar water heater, energy efficient appliances and etc. This was also the 1st home we used to start hosting travelers. Since then we have moved on to another home and use this home as a full time rental that we both manage. Make this home your home during your stay in Orlando!

What makes this house unique

The home is in a great neighborhood of Orlando. What we love about the location is that you can easily walk around the neighborhood and find restaurants, shops and grocery store all near by the home. In addition you can see the neighborhood is going through a transition of builders buying up the older homes and building new builds all around. Finally there are a few great lakes nearby such as Lake Adair and Lake Ivanhoe, all great areas for a run. Also check out all of the reviews we've had and what they have said about the home and neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Alex and her friends were great with communication. They respected the house rules and left things tidy. We didn't get a chance to meet her, but communication was pretty each through here. We would highly recommend Alex to other hosts and welcome her back again anytime.

Great family time!

We had a phenomenal week here with the family. There was a great amount of space for us to spread out; we loved the location and the privacy we felt.

Wonderful home & location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home with a wonderful location. We found the host to be very accommodating. When you see the home you understand the house rules. The homes in this neighborhood are very close together and the street small, but this home is remarkable and very private. The rules are more about being respectful of the neighbors.

If your goal is Disney/Universal, this home is a bit far. But if you are looking for something convenient to everything else Orlando, this is the place. We didn't do any cooking in the home but it had everything you would need. All appliances are high end and the host make everything available to you. There is a great grocery store within walking distance with a deli that made it each to avoid cooking. We were here with our adult children for a wedding. At the last minute, the groomsmen realized they had to be out of their rental and had no where to put on their suits before the 4:00 pm wedding. We texted the owners and made arrangements. They had us park any more than 2 cars in a lot just a few houses down. They were more than flexible. As a matter of fact, because of their flexibility, what could have been very stressful, was enjoyable. This would be the perfect home for a long term rental. We would/will stay here again. Thank you Muriel and Javier!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. Perfect location for all the parks. A short drive away. We found the local diners and restaurants were very good. About a five to ten minute walk. The house it’s self was excellent. Every thing was perfect. Nice touches like a bottle of wine to greet us. Muriel was always in touch with help if needed. Will be coming back.

Beautiful home with a "big brother" feel

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I booked this home with the intention of hosting his immediate family for the week of our wedding. The home is spacious and was able to accommodate 3 couples easily. The home was clean and well set up for visitors (local things to do book, pool towels and separate bath towels and lots of helpful post-its). We had lovely cupcakes in the kitchen for us. The neighborhood location is perfect with walk-able restaurants, a Starbucks and cute vintage looking Publix supermarket.

We did share the purpose of staying in this home was to share Thanksgiving with my family and his. This would be the first time our families would have met. It was obvious that they were keeping very close tabs on us. Please be aware that they not only have cameras in the front and the back of the house for security... but also to keep tabs on their visitors. We did receive several emails and even a phone call about who was coming inside the home. It became a bit overwhelming to say the least. And the homeowners were fully aware of the purpose and intention of vacationing in their home. I wish I would have known the intensity of the situation prior to staying. I will offer just a piece of advice for future renters and that is to be as crystal clear as possible as to who is EXACTLY staying or coming over.

Owner's Response: Hi Jessica and Clint. Thanks for the review. Yes when you first made the booking it was for 2 guests and it was for your wedding weekend. then after discussing it with you it was a party of 6 and you advised there would only be 2 cars parked in the driveway during your stay. The sensitivity came after multiple cars were parked in the driveway and street after the 2nd night. We live in quite neighborhood and make sure our guests do not impact our neighbors especially with their vehicles. Then that evening a party bus unloads in front of the home with guests yelling in the street 2AMish. This is not the type of guests we want to attract with our home rentals. We try to qualify our guests so they are the right match for our setup. We have hosted families in the past but it was a max of 6 guests and on occasion we would make exceptions to a couple more guests in the home. Your family gathering had more than 15 guests coming in and out of the home and you did not disclose the exact number with us prior or during your stay. If we knew this prior to your reservation we would have passed on your reservation as we know we would not have been able to meet your needs. The success of home sharing is all about managing expectations and we try to do that with our listing description and within the house rules. Despite of all the guests in the home thank you for taking care of the home and you did leave it in good conditions at checkout. Also glad we were able to return to you your dress that was left behind in the home after checkout. Happy holidays! M&J
