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 Studio in 2015
Why Muriel Yataco chose Winter Park
This guest house is in a great area for easy access to all the best things in winter park. As long as you have a car you'll easily move around through the city and reach the world class theme parks such as Disney, Universal Studios, Seaworld and etc. This will be a perfect base for you to move around winter park.
What makes this Studio unique
We found our 2nd home last year and we immediately fell in love with the guest house. We knew this would be a perfect setup for our future guests. There's a private entrance and exit, it's completely independent from the main home, it's cute and compact space and finally the location. You're walking distance from Lake Killarney and a short drive away from Park Avenue in Winter Park. We know this space will be hit with our guests.

Lots of "fees", for the price, not impressed. Quality was lacking. Shower was poorly designed, really hot, could not regulate the water temp. (which was fine but if you're going to have this as a guest house, I would recommend fixing it.) AC was really loud, they don't want you to run it all day, so it's hot when you return. The bathroom had small ants on the floor and had a sewer musty smell. Overall the owners had good communication, it was a safe place, and parking was accessible. We're not high maintenance, just expected it to be a bit more quaint compared to the listing.
This was the perfect place for two! We were in the area for our daughter's graduation. We didn't need a big place and we enjoy being able to fix food. We had issues when we got there regarding our reservation, but this was quickly cleared up. Muriel and Javier we very attentive to our needs.
The places worked well for the week I worked. Very comfortable and private.
Worked well with no unexpected complications.
This is a very clean and tidy guest house in an excellent location for walking to restaurants and d.
Clean with many extras for the visitor’s comfort.
The positive - it was clean. The negatice - the “guest house” is not charming.
While this property was clean and the little kitchen well stocked those were the only redeeming qualities. The first set of sheets were synthetic and uncomfortable. The next set, although cotton were old and beat up. We gor only 2 towels. The airconditioner is very loud. The shower disn’t work well and rhe spigot in the tub shower lifted off the wall. Mystified as to how they can charge so much for such a depressing place. The reviews did not match our experience.
Awesome place! Very clean and lots of nearby shops etc.
Thanks for a great stay! Loved your place.
Thanks for the great review. Hope we can host you again the next time you’re in town.
