My husband and I stayed in this beautiful condo in January. I chose this apartment because of the combination of 3 things: great location in the middle of South Beach, incredible views, and complete privacy. The apartment takes up one whole side of the building so you basically have no neighbors. The views really make staying there incredible. Until you’ve lived on Miami Beach you don’t realize that the most spectacular views are over the beautiful bay because there is so much to see, from the islands and cruise ships that seem like floating high-rises going by, to the incredible yachts. But mostly the spectacular sunsets over the skyline in the distance were like having an evening light show that was always different and often was literally jaw-dropping. The apartment has ocean views from the balcony and guestroom to watch the early morning sunrises too, but we never managed to get up early enough! The beds were more comfortable than some 5 star hotels I’ve stayed in, and were truly more comfortable than our own, and had nice pressed high-quality sheets. Everything we needed was there, including lots of thick white towels, a kitchen with every appliance we could need, including a heavenly espresso machine. Also the building is impeccable, from the moment the valet opens the car door for us to the various people who help bring up your shopping, the immaculately maintained swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna, we felt completely pampered throughout our stay.
We, a couple in our 40s, stayed in this beautiful apartment for a month. We loved the location because we could walk just about anywhere, but yet the area feels very safe and calm at night. We used to stay at the Delano for short stays but we found the area to be a little too rowdy and seedy at night. We started staying at the Mondrian so we could be on the nicer west side of Miami Beach, but the Mondrian is so far north that you have to walk rather far to go to restaurants or even to get food at the market, and driving is always a pain because of the difficulty finding parking, not to mention the lack of laundry facilities in their apartments. We chose this condo for our most recent visit because of both its fantastic location, its large size, and because it has all the amenities needed for a long stay, such as a washer and dryer. It is completely furnished down to every possible utensil in the kitchen, lots of brand new towels, and even an espresso machine. The building is very luxurious, with great valet parking and plenty of staff who will even bring up your groceries and shopping for you. It is in a quiet area but just a short walk to the beach and the best restaurants so we could be in the middle of all the nightlife in minutes. We loved coming back to the peaceful apartment with the water views all around us. Being on the edge of the south of 5th area adjacent made it ideal. We will definitely be back!
