We were 3 people travelling to South Beach over thanksgiving weekend (1 couple & 1 single), and stayed in the condo for a week.
I'll start with the good points. The condo is neatly appointed with good furnishings and appliances - both in the kitchen and living areas, and was of a very comfortable size for the 3 of us. Iman (owner and letting agent) handled our booking professionaly, and the adjacent hotel which handles the room keys and cleaning were also friendly and helpful. The location is excellent with very close proximity to Ocean Drive and South Beach. There is a bar/club directly beneath the condo which did get a bit noisy on Saturday night, but was otherwise quiet.
Now for a few of the not so good points. Possibly beyond Iman's control was the fact that the airconditioner was not working. We realised this almost as soon as we checked in since despite it blowing air, the inside temperature remained at a constant 80 degrees. Not very comfortable for sleeping, and we could not leave the balcony door open for cool breeze as that was the soundproofing from outside. Thanksgiving weekend meant that the usual maintenance people could not attend to the problem until 2 days before checkout, which was very unfortunate and annoying. Iman did maintain in contact until it was fixed, but we did feel that some sort of partial refund was due.
Secondly, we felt that the condo was a little dirty when we checked in. It probably was cleaned when the last guests checked out, but was a little dusty and the pans in the cupboard were very greasy, and a few dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
Lastly, it is a bit of an issue that bed linen is only provided for the one double bed. The condo is advertised to sleep up to 6 people, but 4 of those 6 would need to bring their own sheets, pillows and blankets. I wouldn't recommend having more than 4 people as 6 would be a bit crowded.
Would I stay there again? Perhaps - if I was guaranteed beforehand that the aircon would be working!
