“The most convenient and hassle free experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2010

I needed a place to stay for a month, I remembered this place from an earlier apartment search. I called the manager (very pleasant to work with), arranged payment, picked a unit, moved in, easy as it could be. It might seem at first that the price is a little high, but you get over that quickly as everything is included and hassle free. You don't have worry about setting up accounts for utilities and services. The location is great...Starbucks, Walgreens, Mario the Baker, Latin Cafe 2000, and numerous restaurants are sprinkled within walking distance. If you are looking for a place to stay for a few months without the headaches of the (first last and security) nonsense plaguing the area, this is the place.

Rooms - Small with only the most basic kitchen utensils (no bowls, 2 forks, 2 knives, 2 spoons, some plates). Linen was clean. The biggest problems were the lack of heating (it was freezing in our room for a week) and the terrible airplane noise. We had to sleep wearing earplugs and we still slept poorly.
Location - Fine if you are driving. Not somewhere to walk around.
People - I found everyone I dealt with friendly and honest (my deposit was returned with no fuss made).

Dear Guest,
We are sorry that you were not happy with the amount of kitchen utencils. All rooms come with bowls,plates & silverware. If you needed more items we have an onsite housekeeper who is there to provide anything you request. We could have also provided a portable heater and extra blankets upon request. Please come back & see us as we have had many new shops , restaurants & new shopping center added to the area in the last 3 months & it is certainly nice to walk around. Thank you . Come back soon!

My willingness to try something off of the beaten path paid off. The Fortuna House is located about 15 minutes away from South Beach in a quiet neighborhood. The apartment was furnished, clean, had high speed wireless internet, and the AC worked like a charm. I will definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed in Miami for a week after going on a cruise and were pleasantly surprised by what Fortuna House offered. Even though the hallway was under renovation at the time we were there, our apartment was quiet, clean, comfortable, charming and air conditioned. The small kitchen was well equiped and very convenient. Parking outside was always available and well lit. A definite plus was the easy access to Biscayne Boulevard and the causeway over to South Beach. Conveniently located close to grocery store (Publix - love it! and Walgreens). We are definitely staying here the next time we are in Miami. Thanks to Esther and Onilda for making our holiday wonderful.

Fortuna House was a very pleasant. Everyone who worked there was great, easy going and a great help. we slept like babies. Its convienently located in between anything you need. It is a place where you can tell a great amount of love was taken when designing each studio. Its really just a really great place to stay. i have a young baby and it was so nice to be snugly tucked away from the loud rowdy beach. And to be so close to the beach when i needed my dose of South Beach!!!! I'm planning on staying at Fortuna House everytime I come to Miami!!

I found the Fortuna House on vrbo.com, and decided to stay there during my visit to Miami for Ultra Music Festival. What a great choice! When we arrived, the manager showed us three different rooms, and we got to pick the one we liked best.
My girlfriend and I loved how cute the rooms were decorated!!! Very clean, fresh and modern. They definitely put a lot of love & care into this place.

One of the nights during our 10-night stay, we accidentally locked ourselves out of the room, but when we called the manager (at 4 AM!) she quickly notified the housekeeper to come and let us in. We were so happy and relieved!!!

We ran out of towels by the third day but were supplied with more towels and toilet paper upon request. They were really quick to respond and went out of their way to make us happy. It was really homey there and we met lots of cool people .
We walked and cabbed it to all the venues.
Great location and very affordable, would definitely stay there again!

We stayed at the Fortuna House for one week. The apartment is very cute, modern and well decorated. It was clean and neat when we arrived, with new towels. It gets a lot of natural light during the day. The building caretaker is really nice, and also where the neighbors we met during our days over there.

The location is great, very close to downtown Miami but in a quiet residential area. There is free parking outside.

It is also very close to the bridge connecting to South Beach, which does not charge anything for you to cross. The access to the airport is also easy and you can quickly arrive at the North (for example the Aventura Mall).

We truly recommend the Fortuna House for those who want to stay in Miami but with easy access to the beach.

The only negative point we found was when we wanted to wake up later. It could be better if they had a black-out curtains at the window.
