If it wasn't for possible bed bug infestation, I would say that this place is fine to stay for a week during a vacation. The owner is very accommodating and pleasant and the kitchen and bathrooms are recently remodeled and in good shapes. The apartment itself, however, is outdated. Beds and sofas are uncomfortable and furniture is old. In addition, the pool is not well maintained - the pool furniture is dirty and there are bugs everywhere. The gym is not really a gym but a room with 2 pieces of old equipment. The location, while is not far from “happening” things, is not in a “happening” neighborhood or even neighborhood where one can walk around. Also, the beach is at least 15 minutes away, not 6. But I would be willing to overlook all of it if we did not wake up our last day there bitten by some bugs. I still have the marks all over my legs. I asked the landlord if anyone else complained of bed bugs and she acted as if she didn't know what they were, which I find hard to believe. Unfortunately, this overshadowed all the positives that this rental has to offer.

We have been with Trip Advisor for a long time making guests very happy and meeting people from all over the world. We are just a few minutes from Sunny Isles and Bal Harbour beaches (see map). Walking distance from a few good restaurants as well as Starbuck, Einstein Bagels, Kichen kitchen, Jumba juice etc... We are also on premisses in another loft with inventory in order to take care of any needs or demands from our guests.... The loft is very charming and cozy with contemporary furnitures. We are very sorry that this guest felt that way and we absolutely don't understand and agree with her comments....It would have been so easy if they had said something on premisses. Our maintenance people would have come and help immediately and make sure everything was fine! The well being of our guest is for sure our first priority....
