“Will never stay there again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2009

When real estate market crashed Yacht Club increased the rent for their outdated apartments. How can exact same apartment in Mark (the newer building next door, which is an upgraded version of Yacht Club) have asking price of $1,200 to $1,500 a month vs. $1,800 - $1,900 a month in Yacht Club? Or the corner units with asking price of $1,600 to $2,000 vs. $2,400 - $2,700 in Yacht Club. Not to mention “One Miami” the modern building for 40% less than Yacht Club. Take a close look at what Yacht Club offers compare to other buildings: 1). Dirty Carpet vs hardwood or marble floors. Why? Because they charge every resident for carpet replacement at the end of the lease but instead of replacing it, they just clean it. The old stains will appear within two weeks. 2). Cheapest appliances, kitchen counters, cabinets and bathrooms vs. modern appliances, granite kitchens counters, modern cabinets and marble bathrooms in newer buildings. 3). Yacht Club at Brickell is now managed by AIMCO, the company that specializes in real estate for low income families, just take a look at their web site to see for yourself. When building was sold by Oakwood to AIMCO several years ago, the residents began to move out. It got really bad for the past year and a half. The only part of the building that is being maintained is the lobby and the 10th floor (where the showroom is located). Broken glass, empty bottles and trash at the sundeck, swimming pool and hot tub, which most of the time is “out of service”. Dirty saunas that do not heat, broken gym and business center equipment just to name a few. Yacht Club is charging $800 pet fee, where does it go? Carpet at building hallways and service elevator smells disgusting at all times. Pets litter is all over the building and everywhere around the building. It appears like the only parts of building are being cleaned are where they show apartments to future tenants. In addition, building does not provide any type of security to their residents. One minimum wage security guard who is watching soap operas all night, while multiple apartments got robbed in 2007 / 2008, bikes and valuables from parked vehicles are getting stolen on a regular basis and multiple vehicles parked in garage were vandalized. The only thing we are happy about is that our lease is finally over!
