Where do I start? Vacation with children.

Hi everyone. My parents (60 years old) and my children (pre-schoolers) will be going to Miami area this spring. Here is what they want:

1) a condo right on the beach - it is a MUST.

2) preferably an area where it is not overly crowded.

3) grocery store within walking distance to the condo

4) preferably some restaurants/shops/stores within walking distance as well.

I am not familiar with the Miami and the areal east of it and not even sure if that's a right place to post such a question. I would appreciate if you could tell me which beach would be the best for them and how far is it from the airports (either Ft. Lauderdale or Miami). Sorry, I am really clueless now.

Thank you very much to all of you in advance.

Sunny isles Beach area sounds like what you are looking for, rated by this web site as number one travel destination in all of US, based in safety, cleanliness and location.

Everything is across the street from the beach. Restaurants, three grocery stores, upscale deli and much more.

Avantura mall is 3 miles away grat shopping and more restaurants.

I will sens you a private message regarding some owneres that would be willing to rent you a two bedroom ocean front unit.

You can rent a timeshare apartment using the RCI website:


For longer term rentals you can try :


From Ft. Lauderdale airport Sunny Isles is a short 30 minute ride costing $50.00+/-

We also like Hollywood Beach, 10 minutes from Sunny Isles and nearer the airport, lot's of rentals available, restaurants and of course the beach.

Thank you everyone. I am sure I will come back with more questions after I do a bit more research.
