This week's local business spotlight is on Pummarola in Coral Gables, right off Miracle Mile. This hidden gem has some of the best pizza in Miami, it reminded us of our time in Italy- a different style from typical American fare. Their 900 degree wood oven cooks the pizza in about 2 minutes flat and afterwards you have a delicious, steamy pizza in front of you. It is a great option for a simple, inexpensive, and extremely satisfying meal. Highly recommended!

You want to provide your guests with a perfect vacation experience. But by renting your property to those you don’t know, you are also exposing yourself to risk. A security deposit is a vital component of protecting your short-term rental property. The trick is finding the balance between enough money to cover potential damages and an amount small enough to put renters at ease.
Know the Basics
Since your rental agreement may only be a week or even just a night, it’s critical that you include everything necessary to protect your investment. It’s a good idea to include a clear description of the property and key contents, conduct that is prohibited, and how the property should be left at the end of the agreement.
The first step in determining a security deposit amount is to understand the law in your city and state. Some states limit the amount you can require for a security deposit as a multiple of the rent. Other states have no limit at all.
Here are some things to consider when deciding exactly how much to charge for a security deposit.

Lulus in the Grove is a mainstay of downtown Coconut Grove, located right in the middle of it all, it's a great place to sit outside and people watch or enjoy the funky décor inside. The food also doesn't disappoint. Lulus makes an effort to use unique, organic ingredients and it comes through as the food really is delicious. The goat cheese croquettes with guava BBQ sauce are awesome and so is the Kale and Quinoa salad. A must visit when spending time in the Grove.
