Some friends and I booked this for our spring break trip and we were all so excited to see our apartment. Little did we know that the apartment looked nothing like the pictures. Everything looked much bigger online. Also, there was no central air, we had window units that had to be turned off whenever we left the apartment according to a serious of rules left around the apartment.we were told we'd have a sofa bed in the living room, but we got two half size futons with baby crib bedding on it. The bathroom had ants crawling around and no soap, it appeared someone had put water in the soap bottle. We definitely will not be booking with this owner ever again. My friends and I feel we were played out of our money.
Perfectly located on SoBe with a supermarket just across and only a few minutes to the beach. Many small restaurants nearby where the locals go. Jose the owner gives advice what to do and what to avoid. He was very helpful and engaged to make our stay as easy as possible. We'd (family with three kids) love coming back.
The location is perfect. It was a 10-12 min. walk to all the action on Ocean Drive and the beach. We rented scooters nearby (close enough to walk to also) and turned that walk into a 3-4 min. ride. There is a public and liquor store literally across the street which make last min needs an easy find. Alfred was very quick to response although we never actually met in person. There was some construction going on in the apartment across the hall early mornings, but besides the one time the water was off for 5 hours, they didn't bother us much. By 11 am they were usually done for the day and we had plenty of privacy. They shrubs out front provide a secluded oasis with mini palm trees and lawn furniture that really makes you feel like you have been living there your whole life. It was very peaceful and we only saw neighbors like once or twice, and they were friendly as Miami locals can get (:
The apartment is kind of small (in regards to the one bathroom) but the location is so perfect it honestly didn't matter for me and 4 of my friends that stayed there with me. I would stay there again, and again, and again! Literally a hidden gem in the heart of South Beach. Definitely would recommend.
good host, really nice art deco app located 10 min walk from beach at South Beach.
We were a couple but you can easily stay with 4 people. 2 min walk to the left there is a huge supermarket, 5 min te the right there is a latino supermarket that is even cheaper. 10 min walk away from Lincoln Road.
Around the corner you can rent bikes.
We had a late flight back and called the host if we could check out later than 11 am. He checked and called us back immediately, It was no problem.
I can only recommend this place
We stayed for USD 500 / day during New Years'Eve. Th apartment is in the Art Deco district, good location, but very noisy, and the windows don't close properly, you hear the street noise and the partying people all night.
The sun is shining through the blinds, you wake up in the morning.
The kitchen was very dirty and there is no dishwasher. The whole apartment is a little bit rundown.
Myself and three friends spent 5 fabulous days here. There was a slight misunderstanding about parking, but was quickly resolved. Just be sure that when planning your trip here, set aside some funds for parking. Other than that, everything was great! You're right in the heart of the Art Deco District. There's a shopping center right across the street with a Publix and a few retail stores. The beach is a short 15min walk down 6th Street. And along the way are so many different shops and restaurants. Honestly, everything you may need, you'll find. Our host was pleasant and was quick to answer any questions or concerns. This place gets two thumbs up from all of us! So if you're planning a trip to South Beach, this is the place for you.
Location is great. It is 10-15 min walk to the ocean.
A lot of stores and restaurants in the walking distance.
We did not rent a car. We used Uber instead.
Apartment is fine (not a luxury) for family vacation.
