Stayed at Sense Beach House a few weeks ago while visiting Miami to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday and OMG everything about this place is amazing! From the staff (kudos to Anne at the front desk and the wonderful bartender Pavle) to the decor and food we could not have had a better time. The food is delicious...yes all of...

Almost anonymous from the street, in the first quiet block on Ocean, this was a perfect choice to start out Florida driving holiday. We could find no fault with the service, accommodations, technologies or beach equipment. Amazing location that lets you walk to the beach or the heart of the action. The rooftop pool is not huge, but we had...

Booked based on reviews and prices, but very skeptical given my experience of other smaller South Beach hotels. Was pleasantly surprised by the hotels condition, services, and overall experience. It's very close to the ocean, and big pink restaurant, but far enough from the total Crazy Ocean Dr., North of fifth. Small cute restaurant onsite in lobby, but didn't use....

A nice simple clean boutique hotel (25 rooms! with well decorated rooms and friendly staff. There's a very pretty pool area on the roof. The complimentary glass of wine each evening helps ease the cost of a night out in Miami Beach and you get to meet other residents. Parking is very difficult in Miami Beach (I would say nearly...

Dear Anna, I apologize that you went through this unfortunate experience. I have looked into your stay, and it is definitely surprising that you encountered these issues in those rooms since they are inspected every morning of a check-in. I would like to offer a means of compensation for the inconveniences since they should have been avoided. I completely understand...

Stayed at the Sense Beach House based on favorable reviews. Experience was better than expected. The room was spacious and modern design. The hotel is small, having only about 25 rooms, so don't expect big hotel amenities. There is a rooftop sunning area with a small pool. Hotel is right across the street from beach access. It is a good...

We had three good nights at this hotel. Good room. Clean. Slow elevator. Friendly staff. Mid expencive restaurant. A little to lowe location on South Beach if you want more of Miami, but closer to the beach.

We stayed just one night in South Brach after a week exploring the Keys. It is a charming boutique hotel! Lovely little pool on the roof, the room was clean and modern, and the memory foam bed was fabulous. Don't expect total peace and quiet. It is still South Beach even if it is off the main strip. The food...

Had a great stay here at the Sense Beach House over new year. The room was huge with a nice big shower and small balcony. Their happy hour free wine/prosecco is a nice touch and staff were lovely. The location is perfect for south beach and was a great base to explore. Would definitely recommend
