Woof Woof Stays in a 5-Bed Airbnb in Miami

Woof Woof was recently in Miami for the Kidscreen children’s television conference. I decided to save money and experience a little bit of local Miami culture by getting an Airbnb. The hotel room at the conference would have cost over $300 per night.

For just over $100 per night on sale (individual Airbnbs offer seasonal sales), I found an Airbnb that had 5 beds in 1500 sq. feet converted warehouse for Woof Woof to explore. I figured if he wasn’t allowed at the conference, I would give him an entertaining space.

He chose the bed closest to the floor for naps. He loved the shaggy pillow on the  curvy couch that sat twelve people. For playtime, he was a fan of the sloped beanbag bed in the living room. Perfect play hill! When I threw his toy to him, he’d run around my head and squeak the toy before running back to the wood floors. 

The letter blocks didn’t seem to interest him. The half mannequins didn’t amuse him either. Some were the bottom half and others were the top half. He loved sitting next to me on the couch in front of the kitchen table.

He never played on the platform bunk bed. It didn’t seem like the safest place for a 15-pound mini schnauzer. I think he has great jumping skills, but I don’t want to test them from 8 to 10 feet above ground.

The neighborhood was filled with coffee shops with huge patios. Not one coffeeshop in the Wynnwood area rejected Woof Woof. He could pretty much go wherever he pleased.

Oddly, when you’re in the midst of a hectic conference, a studio with a leopard print fridge provides a bit of a campy yet peaceful break. Plus, it has a giant doggie playpen. I guarantee the cleaners who are used to hosting whole rock bands were pleased to see just one woman and a dog walking out.

We’d definitely recommend it for any pet or human. 🙂

Happy travels!
