Bel Aire On The Ocean condo description

1 Bedroom(enlarged master), 1 1/2 bath high end 'hip' furnishing in a penthouse unit with unusual 12 ft ceiling, marble floors, high tech lighting and floor to ceiling windows with spectacular views of ocean, South Beach and Bay and especially downtown Miami at night. Transparent fiber shades that block sun but NOT view. Building directly on beach and new North Beach walkway allows jogging, long walks adjacent to dunes.Pool is directly adjacent to beach and ocean.( Guest comments speak for themselves!)

Bel Aire on the Ocean is directly on the beach in the North Beach area,(65th and Collins) within walking to many restaurants and shops, groceries etc reducing the need for a car. South Beach is only 10-15 minutes away by car or cab.Between Fountainbleu and Bal Harbor. With extra high ceiling, high tech lighting and being on the 18th floor there are fabulous views in 3 directions to ocean and beach, the lights of South Beach and Downtown Miami across the Bay. Parking for 1 car ( or 2 cars tandem). and fully equipped with everything you would need for a great stay. We have another property in Colorado with VRBO, with only great guest comments (see 270699)This is first year we have listed the Miami Beach property since it was only used by us and our children up to this time. We live in Miami so attending to anything during guest stays is easy!! After making a reservation we provide you with a detailed information sheet about the building, the unit and especially what to do, suggestions for restaurants etc to make your stay the most enjoyable we can.

The furnishings are modern, bright with a pull out sofa bed, king size bed in master, 40' wall mounted plasma TV in living room and 37' in bedroom. Internet and WIFI within unit.Marble floors throughout and designer 1/2 bath. Additionally the bedroom has been expanded from the regular bedroom in the building making in extra comfortable plus it opens to the deck and gives you ocean views from the king size bed!!(Bedroom has'black-out' curtains). BelAire on the Ocean has an on site manager, concierge,engineer and valet. There is a security system for entire building needing key fob to enter building and floors etc. Cable and wireless provided with rental as well as utilities at NO EXTRA charge.

It is necessary for all renters to fill out an application to the building for security purposes. there is a $100 application fee. Depending on length of lease owner will cover this cost. The building requires a $1,500 move in security that the OWNER PAYS.

Pets up to 30 lbs allowed with additional security/damage deposit and prior approval by owner.

I provide a detailed information sheet to all guests including information about arrival, the building and specifics in the apartment. I meet all guests on arrival.

                        My wife and I stayed in this apartment for 25 nights and loved it. We come from Argentina and really enjoyed this marvelous apartment The apartment is right in Miami Beach and couldn't be any closer to Miami City, right in front of the beach there's a walking board and all the cafes and restaurants you could possibly want and a couple of blocks away there's a new Publix which makes it easier to walk and shop your groceries The apartment itself was excellent. It is exactly as per the pictures & details and has enough room to make an extended stay enjoyable. It is very secure with doormen 24/7. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom had plenty of space. I can't describe the view you have from your bedroom and the living room, its astonish, you can see Miami's bay as well you have all the ocen for oyurselve right in front of the apartment....I wish we could take the view with us!!!! We found Robert (the owner) to be very, very helpful in all aspects, easy to deal with and quick to respond to any questions. He even called us quite a few times to see if we were enjoying our stay and if everything was alright with the apartment We give it our recommendation to anyone traveling to Miami and no doubt we will come back to this condo, we highly recommended and you will not regreat it at all Thanks Robert for the great time we had and our congrats for your apartment!!!

                        Based on the reviews here, my wife and I rented the apartment for 9 days during Christmas. It really was perfect for us. The owner, met us at the building on our arrival, showed us around and could not have been nicer and more accommodating. The apartment itself has a stunning view, is very tastefully-decorated, in a great location, with all the amenities, including parking and an imaculate gym. When we had a problem with the wi-fi, The owner's son, who is an IT professional, come immediately to fix. The building staff, from reception, to maintenance staff, were wonderful. Our daughter came to visit for a few days, and was extremely comfortable on the sofa bed in the living room. Since we live overseas, we've decided that this is the perfect place to spend our time in the US on vacation, and we will definitely be returning.

                        My wife and I stayed here Feb - April 2012. We loved it. The condo is exactly as described, you will never tire of the view - it is spectacular 24 hours a day with downtown Miami to the west and very nice southern beach view. The adjacent park really expands your openness with a huge balcony; Deco bike rental station at the park is a plus. Ideal for two people; safe area, great broadwalk, and decent restaurants in walking distance. New Publix being built 4 blocks north will complete the package as an ideal long term rental. We have rented in MIA for 4 years and this is the best lcoation; close enough to SOBE but not too close.

                        My husband and I just spent the week between Christmas and New Year's at this condo and cannot say enough great things about it. The building and condo itself are spectacular. Robert was wonderful to work with from start to finish, and extremely helpful upon our arrival and departure. (He met us there as soon as we arrived and showed us all around the building, etc. He even called during our stay to check in on us to see if we had any questions, etc. which was very appreciated.) The condo has everything you could need for a comfortable stay: WIFI, beach towels and chairs, umbrellas, washer, dryer, etc. The condo is very nicely furnished/decorated and spotless, and the view is amazing. The location is perfect, not too close to South Beach where things get loud and crowded, yet a very short drive or cab ride to restaurants, etc. (Note: you don't need a car if staying here, you can easily get around by cab and there are drugstores and restaurants within walking distance. Having a car isn't a problem either as there is parking in the building which is a huge plus.) There's also a wonderful walkway along the ocean which you can take walks/runs on, or bike/rollerblade. We couldn't have been happier with our pick of where to stay and look forward to returning. Thank you again, Robert!!

                        My husband and I have just spent a month in this condo. We loved it! In addition to what others have said I would add that the details are great. It is beautifully furnished and outfitted - even the art is delightful. The bed is so comfortable, and the linens are nice. Everything that we needed was there and we felt very comfortable. The views are fantastic! The city, the ocean at your feet, the beautiful neighborhoods across the intercoastal, Biscayne Bay... You are right at the bus stop and a lovely park next door, which assures your views. The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful! There are several good restaurants close by. (The Lombardy cafe has the best coffee and breakfast, the Venezia slices are great, and Fifi's has a wonderful lunch special, Tamarind Thai is fab..) We recommend this place without reservation!

                        Recommended for: Sightseeing, tourists without a car, pet owners, people with disabilities, romantic getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Again, great location and convenient neighborhood, beautiful views and perfect Miami Beach escape!!

                        Great ocean view apartment with parking. Everything you need for the beach is already there...chairs..umbrella..beach towels. Washer and dryer in the unit is awesome! Kitchen is fully stocked, indoor parking, doorman building with keycard entry everywhere (extremely safe), lovely swimming pool if the beach is too hot etc. Really a perfect vacation condo good for long and short term stays. Bob is always available if there is a question/issue. I felt very comfortable and would stay here again.

                        The listing was everything that it was described to be! The rental was super clean and the furnishings were luxurious! Nothing was forgotten when this condo was stocked- even down to beach towels and cooler! The unit was located on the south side of the building, allowing for breathtaking panaromic views of the ocean, bay, and downtown Miami! I just couldn't get over the view- day and night! The location was perfect for our Miami stay, and the parking (included) was a huge plus! The condo was located right beside the elevator, and was extremely peaceful and quiet. The owner met us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the property and the keys/parking pass. He also called and checked on us during our stay to make sure the condo had met our expectations..AND IT HAD!!! We really hope this condo is available next time we come for a Miami vaca! I would highly recommend this condo! We took advantage of the location...there is a Publix and Walgreens just a couple blocks north. Also, for a great lunch, try Muncheez, about 2 blocks north also. If in South Beach, try The Big Pink at 2nd and Collins- they have EVERYTHING and was reasonably priced. Also, a "must" for your stay is Joe's Stone Crab at 1st and Washington (in South Beach). Excellent dining experience! Thanks, again, for letting us stay in your piece of paradise!

                        Owner response: This sums up everything about the apartment, great views, great furnishings, giving the 'hip' but beach feel and close to eveything in South Beach with convenience of North Beach, walking to restaurants and stores.

                      About the owner: My wife and I live in Miami and use this as our own beach get away. We have another vrbo property, a 4 bedroom, house in telluride, Colorado that we have been successfully renting through vrbo so have had a lot of experience taking care of our guests with many repeat guests both on Miami Beach and Colorado. WE live 15 minutes away so can easily meet on arrival and deal with any issues during your stay as well as give you ideas for restaurants and activites. We provide detailed arrival information and and information sheet about the apartment, the building and Miami Beach

                      Why the Owner Chose Bel Aire On The Ocean:
                      This is our weekend, beach get-away

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Besides the great views, relaxing sound of ocean and breezes, you have direct access to the beach in front of building as well as the pool just off the beach. At night you have quick and easy access to all the restaurants and clubs etc of South Beach and within walking for the building are various neighborhood retail stirs making it very convenient to get groceries, rent movies or access drugstore for quick necessities.
