Upon arriving to this property we had to wait outside for 2 hours due to property owner not answering the phone. Then another family was given the property we booked and had a confirmed reservation for. A woman finally showed up and the other guest were relocated. When we walked into the property we immediately knew it was not the property advertised. There were no couches. In the living room area were two toddler cots. There were sheets on every bed but no blankets. The bathroom tub was dirty. The property is infested with ants. There is white roach powder in all the corners. We immediately called the property owner and received no answer. Our call was eventually returned. The woman stated that we would be given a refund within 5-10 days. She then said she would give us a fan; not sure what for. We ask to speak to the owner and she stated he was in Europe for 3 months and we could not speak with him. She then called back and said her boss said we could not get our money back. She later called me back playing games asking if we received our reservation. She was informed that the situation was not funny. We left this location and booked a reservation at a hotel. Worse experience I have had on a vacation! Never again! Beware this property is a scam.
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
