I stayed at this location for Memorial Day weekend..This was the best experience for my stay..I really enjoyed the place, it looked exactly like the pictures. I would highly recommend someone to rent this place..Also working with the owner was a wonderful experience, he was really nice and made for sure I was comfortable about everything..

Owner response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Teana. Your review will be extremely helpful to all future guests coming to the South Beach area, from all over the world. Our aim is, and always will be, to make our guests vacation, as personal and enjoyable and relaxing as possible, I am truely appreciative of your comments. Our Casa del Sol condo, in the famous Roney Plaza, is as art deco as you can get, and I am extremely happy you had enjoyed everything our condo could provide to you and fellow guests. Thank you for the amount of respect and care you had shown, concerning the use of our condo. It appeared as if it was never occupied. You and your guests were and will always be welcome. Now I'm sorry to say, you probably have to get back to work, with some wonderful memories. All our best,
I wasn't going to write this since I gave Jim, the owner, the courtesy of simply replying to my email but he did not....so here it is. I'm sure his reply is going to be pretty self-serving but YOU decide! He told me after the fact that the "balcony" view shown is for "illustration" purposes only. Come on....should you not post the REAL view which in reality, was a slight ocean view through the thick palm trees in your face and at the much lower level of the third floor? Views are one of the main attractions for most people who are looking for a vacation rental property, are they not? Additionally, right below the low level balcony was the underground service area of the attached hotel with constant and very early morning truck and other noises reverberating through the enclosed area. The real problem though was that the owner never mentioned that adjacent hotel is undergoing renovations inside and OUTSIDE the building. Not only was it unsightly which you can kind of put up with but the constant jackhammering shaking your molars was NOT!! Rather than sitting poolside listening only to the the warm Florida breezes, you had to put up with the construction noise which was deafening. Jim, please don't reply you knew nothing about this. I checked with the onsite condo association and the hotel. Both said owners were very well aware of the scheduling. The right thing to do was mention that to a prospective tenant. Please also don't tell me that is why your rate is alot less than the hotel. FYI, a fully decked out room with maid service at that hotel was not that much more than yoor condo, even with all applicable taxes. I know you usually reply to your guest's comments so please maintain your reputation since you seem to be a decent guy and pretty easy to work with. Simply tell others you will post the TRUE view photos of your place and you screwed up by not having full disclosure about the construction!!

Owner response: I really did not know I was that wonderful, I knew I was great, but wonderful, I'll accept that, and very greatful !!!! So glad you enjoyed yourselves and all South Beach has to offer. I heard you visited all the great spots I suggested, it really helps if you know your way around. I must say that you and your family were "wonderful" also. Thank you for choosing our condo as your home away from home. The ocean will be waiting for your return for new memories, all you have to do is call and you will be laying by the pool again with that cocktail in hand. Always my best, Jim

I would stay in this condo again. It is literally right on the beach. The pools are amazing, especially the "infinity" pool at night, and there's a hot whirlpool, too. For those unfamiliar with the area, like we were, this is on the very northern edge of South Beach. We ended up renting a car, but if we returned, I don't think we would. The Lincoln Road pedestrian mall is within walking distance, and the southern reaches of South Beach are easily accessible by public transportation. The owner is extremely responsive, both to our initial inquiry and as we booked the trip. I thought it would be helpful to clarify some of the amenities. There are actually 1 1/2 bathrooms, which was nice for our larger group. There are only two futons that are large enough to sleep on. While comfortable, they are not full-size, and would only accommodate one adult. I would recommend the condo for 4 adults (1 couple in the bedroom and 2 singles), unless additional people are okay with sleeping on the included cots. All linens are included, and were nice and clean. Beach towels are provided free from a vendor on the beach (chairs and umbrellas are extra), as are towels for the pool.

Owner response: Dear Liz, Told you about not needing a car, but glad we gave you our free valet service, otherwise it is very costly to park anywhere in South Beach, as you found out. With larger groups as you had ( as I had described ) the rollaways in the closet areas along with the 3 additional sofa sleepers and the master suite, always give our guests proper and additional sleeping arraingements, but always far better then renting hotel rooms. A hotel room in South Beach with a double bed, is as costly as the entire condo and without ocean views, such a great opportunity for your family and your additional guests to spend the savings on the great food, gifts and sight seeing in this fantastic area. By our phone converastions, it now seems your vacation met all your expectations and then some, but I heard it was hard getting you out of the pools and the hot tubs, to even experience South Beach, WAY TO GOOOOO. Wishing you all the best in the New Year and waiting for your return, Sincerely, Jim
What a beautiful art deco styled condo in a perfect location in South Beach with fantastic views. Everything is within walking distance. The pool area at the Gansevoort resort is absolutely fabulous and the most impressive I have ever seen. The beach is a 2 minute walk. There is nothing I can fault about the condo or the location. Jim was very helpful with any queries we had and give good recomendations for sightseeing and restaurants.

Owner response: OK, OK enough about ME !!!!!, thanks so much for not forgetting to mention South Beach and our beautiful condo. Some of our guests have never been to South Beach before (as you and your family) and it is very important for me to make your vacation stay as fantastic as possible. So many places to sight see, visit, eat, relax, it is always best to be informed before you arrive, so you can enjoy South Beach as a local. Thank you for choosing our condo above all others, best wishes through this Holiday Season and waiting for your return, Always my best, Jim
My wife and I stayed 5 nights as we were in South Beach to visit our son who is with The New World Symphony. The unit was perfect for the two of us. Although it rained quite a bit while we were there, we managed to enjoy the pool a couple of days. Jim was very accurate in describing the unit and gave us several good places to eat. We will definitely return.

Owner response: Dear Charles & family, I have alot of pull with the man upstares, and where ever I go the sun shines. Sorry when you were there I left for a few days, and naturally it rained. I will talk to HIM and on your next visit, the only water you will find will be in the ocean & all the pools !!! I understand it was a wonderful experience to see your son play in the New World Symphony, and I am very glad I had a small part in all the enjoyment South Beach had to offer your family. I will help you with more places to see and visit when you have a longer stay. Would love to be invited to hear the Symphony and your son play on your next trip, keep in touch. Always my best, Jim
Casa Del Sol
Casa Del Sol
We had a fantastic time. This property is close enough to EVERYTHING, but far enough away to relax from the hustle and bustle of South Beach. The only negatives were small. No one seemed to know the username for the wifi. And our room keys weren't ready. (The situation was remedied quickly). I would highly recommend this condo.

Owner response: Sorry to hear that your security cards were not ready. Really we had nothing to do with that concern, the concierge was looking in the wrong file, after my call to him you immediately received with an apology from them. The wifi username is in the kitchen drawer, I personally did not receive a call, but I understand our other agent showed you where it was. I was really glad to hear you took my advice for your sight seeing trips, and great restaurants and I know you had a wonderful time in the ocean and sunning by all the pools, especially the infinity pool. Future dates await you and your family, All my best, Jim
I don't know where to start. The condo was breath taking!! BEST condo I ever stayed at by far. I booked this trip last minute for my family and myself. James was soooo helpful and patient with me. He has a wonderful personality! I felt like I was dealing with a family member not a complete stranger. South beach was amazing. We were right in the middle of all the action!! Not one dull moment. The best part was our 40 foot balcony with a complete view of the beach and the city. The condo was clean and very comfortable. We didn't use use our car not once. We walked every where. I'm saving James contact info because I'm planing to come down every year!! Thank you James for everything !!

Owner response: Dear Gina, now wait a minute, we are related !!! Haven't you ever heard of Adam & Eve? When I receive new guests, especially if they have never been to the great South Beach area, I will always go out of my way to make your vacation as enjoyable as I can. Informing about sightseeing, best restaurants, how to spend your $$$, and how to save it, food and souvenirs are just important as your living conditions. As far as your statement "breathtaking" I told you soooo ! Your condo is gorgeous has the largest balcony in the total resort, the views are indeed spectacular. Thank you for your very kind words, these reviews are my scrapbook memories also. Our home is your home, there will always be a place for you in South Beach, but remember to call first !!!! Always my best, Jim
Truly South Beach at its Best
Truly South Beach at its Best
We have been traveling twice a year to South Beach, one week in April and two weeks during the summer for the past 12 years. Our family has grown in numbers (2 young children, etc) so we needed to seek larger quarters and I went to the VRBO website. What a wonderful discovery. Everything you read in Jim's description is accurate. He is ALWAYS a phone call away although I only needed to speak to him for a few small details but it was always a pleasure to speak to him. The apartment is exactly as you see it in the photos. The atmosphere is friendly and accommodating. I don't want to say too many good things since I would like the apartment to be available whenever I "want" it.

Owner response: Thank you sooooom much for your kind words. Our new guests really do not know what to expect from the South Beach experience. I am always willing to be available to guide you through the magic and fun you expect from a great vacation. Often many of our guests tell us of stories that what they thought they had purchased was not what they received. I am so delighted that your trusted my description, not only of your home away from home, but of all the sights, food, entertainment I had led you to. Hopefully the condo will be yours again, if you contact me with enough time to have a bottle of wine waiting for you. Always my best, Jim
Everything was as James said. The condo was excellent (clean and well maintained). Walgreens is across the street. Something we did'nt know. Publix is their big Super Market. If you do not have a car, I would take a taxi to get there (about a 5 minute drive). There are several smaller markets around too. There is one around 28th (5 blocks down from the condo). Everything is within walking distance or bus ride...I would highly recommend this condo. It is only 5 blocks from the start of the main area. The restaurants and bars start around 18th street. James was a great a host and has a super personality.
