“OUT OF FASHION SO REAL PLACE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

In Miami to be located at walking distance from Ocean Drive, to be in a peace place, with a natural and warm atmposphere. rooms not huge but clean, comfortable. Breakfast cooked at the moment. Easy parking with the pass. If we will be back in Miami we will not look for something else.

This was the last stop on our 4 week tour of the USA. South beach was incredibly busy due to NFL matches that weekend and it was lovely to leave the manic ocean drive to return to the B&B. the staff were lovely and very helpful as we're the breakfasts. The pool was big enough to be a very welcome way to cool off after the 80 degree heat. It was a bit pricey for the size of the room, but the peace was worth it.

We were spending a few days on South Beach at the end of a cruise but wanted to be away from the main tourist areas. I did a lot of research and came up with So Be You what a fab find , located a 10min walk back from Ocean Drive in a quiet residential area just what we wanted.
The rooms though small were tastefully furnished we had a deluxe double room 7 on the top floor of the block outside, we even had a small fridge that came in handy . The outside area and pool seemed really nice but to be honest we were not around in the day so don't know how much sun the pool got . Breakfast included , different every day very tasty.
We didn't have a car but this wasn't a problem the supermarket that was really good was 5 mins away the same with Starbucks . We also found through lena at the B an B a fab little restaurant called Olivers Bistro used by the locals we went New Years Eve then again 2 days later compared to the over hyped expensive rubbish on Ocean drive it was a godsend.
Would I recommend this place definately , would we return to South Beach probably not , been there done it . it is a pretty mad place very over hyped, I was expecting sophisticated that it isn't !

We were in this B&B in August because we read about it on Tripadvisor and it was a great discovery.
It is placed exactly in front of the firemen station so easy to be found.
Even if it isn't in the ceter of south beach it is very near and having the parking permit you can leave nearby your car and reach walking more or less every part of the city and the beach.
The B&B has few rooms and they are quite small but there is enough space for you and your luggage but remember to ask for a room at the ground floor if you have a lot of luggage because there is no lifter.
Our room was very clean and confortable and also the small bathroom was clean and even if essential it was good enough.

The owners are very kind and can help you in finding placecs in South Beach. Their suggestions are generall very good especially for restaurants.

The breakfast is included and it changes every morning: not many things but different every day.

There is a small swimming pool that you can use more or less the whole day even if I personally find difficult to use a swimming pool having the ocean few blocks away!

It's a little bit expensive but consider that you are in South Beach and I think this is a good value for your money.

South Beach is very expensive but SoBeYou offered great value and location. We stayed in the family room, which had a king bed plus two singles in a little alcove. The price was 1/3 of what we paid our first night to be right on the beach and we get breakfast for four as well! The location is in a safe neighborhood, less than a ten minute walk to the beach but also close to great shopping and food on Lincoln Ave as well as cool eateries on Espanola Way. The staff were friendly and helpful and the pool area, though small, is very nice and never overcrowded. We would come back here again and again.

My only complaint was the recommendation by the owner to use Admiral Tours. The tour was the worst we've ever been on and had we read TripAdvisor first we never would have booked it. A B and B owner shoud be aware of such things.

Room Tip: Family room is great for a family of 4. Not quite a suite but almost as good!

The location makes this place perfect!
Clean, comfortable, 5 minute walk to the beach. 2 minutes to supermarket.
The room (12) in the main house was a little small and too light to survive our jetlag. The shutters let the light through that comes from the pool. Also a litlle noisy from the neighbors.

I would take the rooms in the additional building, they seemed to be a little darker to be able to sleep and maybe not so noisy from the neighbors.

The pool is too shallow to swim but great for kids and beautiful.

It is a very good option compared to all these expensive south beach hotels directly on the beach.
would go here again.

Room Tip: choose a room in the addional house. the main (old) house is a little noisy.
