“Consistantly delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I stayed at Sobe You 2 years ago and loved it. Just back for another visit to Miami, and even thought it was a bit far from where my friends live in S. Miami, I chose it because of the little bit of Paradise that exists once you enter the garden gate. Pool and gardens are a fair size for this former private residence. Rooms are simple but spotless, and the fridge is very helpful for any leftovers or picnic supplies you may want to keep cool. (Whole Foods and the Epicure market are nearby, ready to let you choose your favorite treats...I got a perfectly cooked whole duck breast at the Epicure, which lasted for 2 deliciious meals!!!)

The staff is extremely helpful, and I was happy to see most of the same people who were there 2 years agol Breakfasts were very nice and they were happy to accomodate my preferences for veggies in the omlette, etc.

Many of the guests were from Europe, and although I knew the sites in Miami after living there for nearly 20 years, the staff was guiding people to the best sites not only on the beach, but in the entire area.

Parking has become more of an issue, and permits are now available for $20/day. That really isn't too bad considering it covers unlimited in and out street parking on some of the most popular streets in the area all night.

I obviously returned to Sobe You, and would do so again. It's a little hidden treasure.

We stayed at this B&B for 4 nights with our two teenaged daughters. The owners were very accommodating and placed us in their family suite for 3 nights of the 4, and finding two rooms close together for the first night. Ideal location for South Beach and we felt very safe and looked after throughout our stay. We would certainly recommend this to friends and family.

Sobe You is located on a quiet residential street, which is close to the ocean, the bay, shopping, and restaurants. The updated "old Florida" atmosphere is immediately evident. The extraordinary staff, the rooms, and the pool area are all inviting you to relax and enjoy. The breakfasts are delicious and meeting the other guests, who are an international mix, makes the morning start right. You cannot go wrong with this wonderful place

We loved our stay at the SoBE - the room was very nice and the pool was perfect. It is close to the action, but far enough away to be quiet and calm. Breakfast was excellent and the staff was super nice.

We arrived way at SoBeYou around 9:30 am due to an early flight. I called the in advance to see if we could drop our bags, and was told by Eric it would be fine. When we arrived we met Denise, a very friendly and helpful young lady. She told us to drop the bags, took us to the open bathroom to change into shorts and sit by the pool and have some coffee. Great first impression. We asked about some good Cuban food and she recommended Havana 1957, excellent choice. She then suggested walking routes and was very proud of the art deco architecture of this area. When we returned from the Lincoln Road area, she was there to greet us and ask about our afternoon. Our room was ready and we changed to use the pool. The room was nice, but we had to share a bathroom with one other room, not our first time in a B and B. We were only going to be there one night before our cruise, so it wasn't bad. Being an older home, it was not surprising that you could hear everything upstairs. The breakfast was an excellent burrito with beans, eggs and tomatoes, and a refreshing cup of fruit. Coffee was good and stout. They were used to getting taxi's as three other couples were checking out that same morning. Taxi cost $20.00 with tip to the port. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If staying more than one night stay in the guest house.

We spent 4 days here in a room with a shared bath. Room was small but tastefully decorated. We particularly enjoyed the pool and garden, which felt like an oasis in the city. We enjoyed the opportunity to meet other guests during breakfast.

I recommend without any reservations! Darling place!

We spent three nights here recently. Our king deluxe room (#2) was very clean with a very comfortable bed. There was a very small retro bathroom with tiled shower. The room was small but we did not spend much time in it. There was a small refrigerator and an air conditioning unit that kept us comfortable in the heat and humidity. It would be nice to have a comfortable chair in the room but we used one of the patio chairs inside without a problem. The tropical feel of the enclosed courtyard was lovely although we did not have time to enjoy it much or to use the salt water pool.

The staff at this B & B were extremely kind and accommodating. It was necessary for us to leave before the start time for breakfast on two mornings. In both cases the staff made arrangements for us to have something to eat early. We also appreciated their assistance with a resident parking permit which let us come and go to meet our obligations while there. (I did arrange this when making the reservation--I know there are a limited number of these permits.)


We really appreciated the helpfulness of the staff especially Denise and Eric. It made an unpleasant trip bearable. I have no hesitancy in recommending this B&B. It is a real value in Miami Beach.
