Other South Beach Properties condo description
This Prime Meridian has the perfect balance for short or extended stays. The 8 unit building is located on a quiet tree-lined street but is just a few short blocks away from everything you could want in South Beach; Lincoln Road shopping, Dining, clubbing, jetskiing, or simply soaking up the sites on the lyrical beach itself.
A recent 4 star renovation included top quality applicances, including unexpected ones like a washer/dryer, plus a dishwasher, central air, etc. We stocked it with everything we would want in a vacation home and then added things we thought others might appreciate (hair dryer, multiple types of blenders) Top quality linens, glassware, comfortable sofa and bed to collapse on after a busy adventure filled day.

We had a lovely time in this cozy, well equipped apartment. Cornelius was very nice to let us check in early and check out late due to our flights. I would highly recommend it!

I enjoyed my stay at this beautiful property. It is a few blocks away from vibrant Ocean Drive but only about a 10-15 minute walk away. I would definelty stay here again.

This was a prime location, near South Beach. I had to speak with the owner a few times and I was able to communicate easily by email and phone. There were a few mishaps during my vacation, however, the owner had excellent communication and resolved all my issues. When things can go wrong, it helps to have an owner who is available and helpful. Thank you Cornelius for all your help!

As the title says the place and very cute and convenient to nightlife, beach, restaurants and anything else you dabble into on Sobe. Cornelius was very helpful with contacting the cleaning crew to ensure the apartment was cleaned within a reasonable time frame (we checked in early and the last guests had literally checked out earlier that morning, so the apt needed to be cleaned). The washer/dryer work great, the fridge gets super cold and the bed sleeps sooooo amazing! Unfortunately, we weren't able to connect to the internet or use the phone for whatever reason, but Cornelius was available to answer all question and help us figure out the issue. Overall great stay and well worth it. If you are thinking twice about booking---DONT! You won't regret it. :-) Ps. There were two beach chairs already in the apartment and we purchased a large umbrella, so I hope the next guests get great use out of the items! Enjoy! We will definitely be back!

Very good studio in the heart of SoBe
Very good studio in the heart of SoBe
We are a couple with two little kids and usually rent studios/condos directly with the owners. Cornellius, the owner, was amazing: always responsive, professional and kind. Parking zone 2 is simply the best if you need to use a car (we needed it after shopping at the Lincoln Road Mall). The studio is close to the fantastic Whole Foods market, the beach, Collins Ave., Ocean Dr., SoFi - everything you need is walking distance (that's why we love SoBe). The camera at the front door was VERY useful, since we needed some assitance due to some problems with the door code upon our arrival. Unfortunately the washer machine was broken during our stay, but the owner gave us a very reasonable solution for this problem. We would definitely stay there again. Keep up the good work, Cornellius!

Owner response: Getting the washing machine replaced while not inconveniencing our guests was a little challenge - especially this time of year when we've been pretty much booked solid. I'm glad that it's resolved now but still sorry that it wasn't there for a few of our guests. Here's hoping that we don't need to make use of the extended warranty!
lovely place. great location
lovely place. great location
Husband and I were here last year for a week, and are back now for 4 days. The apt. is compact, very nicely furnished, great new appliances and everything clean & bright & working. Location is fabulous - just a few blocks to the beach/Ocean Dr. & to the tip of Miami Beach, with its beautiful park. Biscayne Bay is just as far. Whole Foods is a shortish walk, as is a big regular supermarket, and a bodega is just a few blocks. For us, the apt. is great for 2 people who spend at least some of the time in the apt. reading & working. Wifi & TVs work, and owner is a pleasure to deal with even though he's not physically present. There's nowhere to sit outside connected to apt. (patio, balcony), but the great outdoors is not far and the price is SO reasonable!

My friend and I have an exceptional time in this little apartment in South Beach! We walked everywhere and even baked some cookies when we decided to say in one night! I would love to stay again. This apartment is comfortable and so convenient. It was so nice to have a tv in the bedroom. We loved the key less entry and felt so safe and secure. The towels are so nice and thick and the bed was SO COMFORTABLE!!! Im so glad I found this gem in South Beach! I will never stay in an overpriced hotel again when I can get this amazing apartment.

What a perfect place

We spent a week at this incredible apartment and could not have been happier. The location was great, close to everything, and the apartment had a ton of advantages over a higher priced hotel. The parking pass gave us a great advantage while zipping around south beach and having a washer/dryer in the unit meant we didn't have to do more shopping when all the clithes got dirty - loved that ! The owners were easy to communicate with and flexible to some special requests, great servce! I've found my home away from from home and another reason why South Beach is a favorite destination

Nice little place close to the beach. The location is great! The apartment comes with a parking pass which was extremely useful. Having the washer and dryer to use was also a big plus. Kitchen is fully stocked and has everything required to make a meal. The reason I rated the property a 3 star is because the original listing stated that there was a queen size bed. When we arrived, the bed was a double. It was too small and uncomfortable to sleep in. The owner has since changed the listing to indicate that there is a double bed. We would stay there again if the owner bought a queen size bed.

Owner response: WE pride ourselves on being responsive to our guests and value their feedback. We try to remember that everyone has different priorities: location, price, dishwasher, parking, washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, bed size. When the original VRBO listing was created 2 years ago the wrong box must have been checked for bed size. Dozens of guests never mentioned it yet it was important to Lorna. As she noted, as soon as this was brought to our attention we corrected the listing - and double checked everything else. We keep on working to give our guests the best experience possible.
I HAVE GONE TO MIAMI FOR MANY YEARS, BUT THIS TIME WAS DIFFERENT CORNELIUS HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL. WE REALLY HAVE TREATED VERY WELL AND MET WITH ALL AGREED, AND MUCH MORE. WE HAVE RENTED A CAR AND CORNELIUS HAS GIVEN FREE PARKING. THE DEPARTMENT IS VERY CLEAN AND BRIGHT. NO KEYS TO GET IN AND OUT, ??VERY COMFORTABLE, ALL AUTOMATIC AND VERY SAFE. I HAVE JUST ONE WORD, MANY THANKS CORNELIUS. WE LL BE BACK NEXT YEAR FOR SURE !!!! THANKS THANKS THANKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner response: Fernando booked the apartment many months ago. After reading the previous review he contacted me to check that everything was alright. Now that others have stayed with no negative issues we realized that you can't please everyone. I'm glad he enjoyed himself. Some things took a little longer because of language. We have a very International roster of guests. I appreciate the extra effort Fernando took to write the review in English. I'm always terrified to write in Spanish/Portuguese/French.

Why the Owner Chose Other South Beach Properties:
We loved this apartment from the minute we saw it. It is in excellent condition, get's great light, in on the first floor yet still gives you privacy. The exchange rate is pretty good these days so we knew it was the right time to make the move and the quality of the renovation surpassed pretty much everything else we saw
