Decided to come to this charming B&B because of a Groupon coupon. Even without the "deal", I would recommend the place highly. When I first walked through the gate (I arrived after dark), the lighting and the tropical setting were magic. The courtyard with the pool was a reasonable size for a private home, which this was in a previous incarnation. There are spotless rooms in the house and more in a building behind the courtyard. Each room has an individual A/C unit, which actually acts as "white noise". Even though I'm a light sleeper, no noise from the courtyard bothered me, and I was able to sleep very well.
Nothing is "fancy", but all evokes the simplicity of a beach vacation. The lapping waves are only a short walk away, and there are excellent food stores nearby (the Epicure and Whole Foods) to purchase snacks or entire gourmet picnics. The fridge in each unit is very helpful for any leftovers you may have.
The reception area is closed in the evenings, but all needs for check in and local information were contained in an envelope that had been placed in the mailbox near the side door. The only thing I missed was having some help with my luggage, but I was coming back from a cruise in Europe, and had several suitcases with a bunch of cold weather clothes as well as Beach outfits.
Breakfast was fine, with fresh fruit, an egg dish, cereal, and excellent coffee. There was no choice on the main dish, but I expect that they would make modifications if requested. The staff went out of their way to be helpful.
The parking situation in South Beach can be an expensive nightmare, but there is adequate street parking in front of the B&B (they supply a parking permit). A few spaces were also available in the driveway.
All in all, throughly enjoyed my time at SoBe You. Only regret that it was not longer!!!
