I say as first thing: I am not an expert of resorts or maxihotels, i rather more often use backpacker's or little hotels/hostals, but I have to say that for quite a reasonable price I found a very confortable accomodation in South tower. Balcony had view on downtown skyline and water front. I loved jacuzzi and swimming pool as unfortunately... More

Location,Location, Location!!! That is all you can say about this dump...i am not sure where to start and don't have enough time to write everything here...Basically, the place is one big sespool of nastiness. The place smells like a constant flow of dog piss. The grounds are filthy, the management is a total joke and the place is not safe.... More

I rented an apt from FeelMIami.com that was at the FLamingo Apartments, 1500 Bay st South Beach, Fl. It was close to shopping, food and activites. The view was great from the balcony and the pool was great. But, there are several problems with this situation. 1. There is tight security in all the buildings and it is near to... More

I would highly recommend planning your trip with WeOwnSouthBeach!!!! The services that Ryan Atkin provided were AMAZING. I would never think to use in house services to help organize our trip, but his planning and attention to detail made our trip EXTRA special! He went out of his way to plan a surprise for our bachelorette at a great late... More

I had a great time with a girlfriend's bachelorette party! The Flamingo properties are fantastic with great balcony views, fun pool scene (music, waiting service, hot bodies left and right), and close proximity to shops, restaurants, nightlife, and the beach. Taxis were readily available at any given time outside the property. Thanks to Ryan Atkin with WeOwnSouthBeach for going above... More

We came down to South Beach for my sister's bachelorette party and stayed here in the Penthouse Suite under Ryan Atkin at We Own South Beach. The place was gorgeous and nicely decorated and very spacious for us eight girls. The balcony view was amazing!! You can see the beautiful crystal clear blue/turquoise water and Miami Beach's downtown--breathtaking!! The pool... More

Our stay at the Flamingo was very nice. We were very well received by Ryan Atkin. We were staying in the apartment for 5 weeks, and it went very well. The resort has an excellent gym, a large swimming pool ... The condominium is well located near the Lincoln Road. Not exactly in front of the beaches, but it's very... More

We had a tough time with our apartment in the South Tower at the Flamingo. We are a pretty tolerant bunch but the apartment we were in was filthy. The smell of the old cigarette smoke was "covered" up by air fresheners that were non effective, and equally foul. Some of the appliances did not work, toaster and washing machine,... More

My family and I had a wonderful and restful stay at the Flamingo for four days. We are very grateful to WOSB (We Own South Beach) and Ryan Atkin for providing us with a very luxurious, comfortable and spacious unit located on the top floor of the south tower. The views of the Miami Bay and the city's skyline from... More
