Flamingo apartment description

Enjoy the character and charm of South Beach in one of its oldest residences, built in 1929.

The rental consists of a fully modernized 800 square foot private luxury apartment comprising the entire first floor of the villa/duplex.

Historic 'Villa Gala' is located in the heart of the Flamingo/Espanola Historic District, situated at the end of Espanola Way on Jefferson Avenue which is blocked from public access on both ends to form a private street -- no street noise, just solitude.

With your own private parking space you can park just steps away to your door.

The fabulous Lincoln Road pedestrian mall is two short blocks
north, and a short walk down historic Espanola Way takes you to Collins Avenue, Ocean Drive, and the warm Caribbean-blue waters of South Beach.


Villa Apartment Details: This private villa apartment comprises the entire first floor of the historic 1929 main house.

With 9 foot ceilings and arched entryways, this unit is inviting and spacious. It also has lots of outdoor living space with a sunny terracotta patio in the front and a private Chicago brick patio in the back.

The living room boasts comfortable furnishings including a unique
partner desk for any work that cannot wait until you get home. The glass and ironwork dining table sets 4.

The gourmet kitchen has top-of-the-line, stainless steel appliances, gas range, dish washer, and a custom terrazzo counter top. To make meal prep easy and grand, a 12 piece 18/10 stainless steel cookware set, baking pans (non-stick and Pyrex), and tools are provided . We include dinner service for 6 (including wine glasses). The silverware even has shrimp forks and iced-tea spoons.

The kitchen door opens onto your own private dining patio with gas grill, hummingbird and butterfly garden. Great for reading your morning paper with coffee. A queen bed with comfortable mattress and suede headboard is the heart of the bedroom. A 4 drawer dresser and deep wall closet will provide ample storage for clothes, etc.

The Florida-style sitting room has a danish modern daybed. You will enjoy curling up here to watch a movie on satellite Direct
TV or choose one from the DVD library. Or settle into one of the occasional chairs to read or chat with friends.

Free private parking is available. However, with so much within
walking distance, you will doubtfully need to drive during your stay.

Children are welcome; however, the unit is not considered 'child
proof'.

We have had many guests with children (infants to teenagers, etc.) and they find it perfect for family vacations. The children love the Flamingo Park pool and playground around the corner.

                                We stayed at Villa Gala for a week. The location is exellente, a short walk to the beach and to Ocean Drive. It was like an oasis. The property was clean and well-maintained. Aaron and Tammy was very nice and provided good service. I would highly recommend Villa Gala for everyone that wants to stay in quiet surroundings at South Beach.

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, tourists without a car.

                                Me, my wife and my two year old daughter had a great time in this really well equiped appartment. We liked the fact that we could use all the books, movies, beach stuff and everything else there. The walk down to the beach did not bother us that much, and we loved the fact that the appartment was located in a dead end street, very quiet and private considering that we felt like we were smack in the middle of everything.

                                Recommended for: Pet owners, romantic getaway, families with young children, tourists without a car.

THE ONLY THING I WAS DISAPPOINTED ABOUT WAS THAT THERE IS NO MICROWAVE.. :0( ,, BUT OTHERWISE THE VILLA WAS PERFECT FOR MY FRIEND AND I. I would love to stay there again in the future..

                                This was our second stay at Villa Gala and we absolutely love it. Centrally located; it is walking distance to Ocean Drive and Lincoln Drive and just steps away from the dog park and beautiful Espanola Way. The apartment has everything you will need during your stay. The outside shower is fabulous! We'll definitely be back next summer!

                                We have stayed at the Villa Galla more than once. We continue to go back. It's clean, quaint, and has all the essentials. The only down side is its a little bit of a hike to the beach....other than that we love this place~
