BAIA condo description

This is a Completely Non-Smoking Unit.

This modern 1 bedroom, 1 bath is part of an 8 unit historical building that was completely remodeled 5 years ago. The design team received the award for Costa Rica House of the Year for Interior Design for 2010.

It has dark hardwood floors, slate countertops, Bosch appliances and a huge open kitchen and 10 ft high ceilings.

The marble bath bath and glass and wenge wood vanity complete the best way to enjoy your stay in South Beach.

Ipod sound system and flat screen TV for your entertainment. Wifi Internet access. 929 Michigan is right in the middle of South Beach -- walking distance to all the bars, nightclubs, beaches and restaurants, but still located on a quiet residential street.

If you aren't here to play the condo has the easiest access to the causeway to head downtown and to work or to the I-95.

As long time locals we will even share with you our favorite spots!!

The building is pet friendly and kid friendly.


Flamingo Park: We are 1.5 blocks from Flamingo Park with tennis courts you can play on for a few dollars, a kids water park and regular park -- with a rock climbing wall for kids !! There are two dog parks and countless soccer fields. There are also many bike rental stations that allow you to bike from place to place -- there is no need for a car.


We bought the entire building in 2004 and remodeled it from top to bottom. It was literally rebuilt in place as it was an historic building from 1924. This makes it not your average vacation rental from the Bosch appliances to the hurricane impact windows. We furnished the listing for our personal use so we think that also sets us apart from your average South Beach Rental.

We live in Aspen, CO and come and go from our South Beach Rental. I love that I can WALK ANYWHERE -- and I do. My husband loves that he can take a taxi anywhere on the beach for around $4. Our 7 year old son loves that we can walk to the amazing kids park 1.5 blocks away.

Both my husband and I use the tennis courts that are just 1 block away. The Whole Foods -- 2 blocks away -- is super handy. I love how big the apartment feels -- even though it is a 1 bedroom it has the feeling of space and separate areas. Even though when you are in South Beach you are on the go with so much to do -- the big sectional sofa is nice to come home to and watch some TV.

I tell everyone -- one experience not to be missed is renting a beach chair at the Delano hotel -- 17th Ave and Collins. The best $20 you will ever spend !!! Also order a Nina Fresa (cocktail) as Sushi Samba on Lincoln Road at the corner with Pennsylvania. Email us for more tips or read on !!

Many of our guests have come from outside of the US (Brazil, Italy, England, Switzerland, France and Canada) and I have struck up email friendships with so many!! We love to travel and hope you will enjoy your vacation in our vacation place!!

Here are our local area tips -- please enjoy !!!

Restaurants:

Oliver's Bistro at 9th and West is right around the corner and I love it. not expensive good food and wine — close by. $$

Sushi Samba — Lincoln Road and pennsylvania — BEST Sushi — siting outside and people watching — cocktail — Nina Fresa $$ - $$$$

Lime — fresh mexican — super casual and awesome — skinny fish burrito is amazing — really casual at 14th and alton — super near condo $

Ocean front lunch at Ritz Carlton -- worth it $$ - $$$

Tapas y Tintos on Espanola Way — loud live Flamenco music on some nights nice outdoor quieter tables with great Spanish Tapas $$

I love Nikki beach for lunch NOT on Sundays when it is a crazy party $$ - $$$$

Prime 112 is amazing ridiculous steak but you will spend easily over $150 for 2 people $$$$$

Monty's Oyster bar on the bay — a little spring break looking but great raw bar happy hour — 3rd or 2nd and Alton $$ - $$$

Yardbird at 16th and Lenox is the new in spot -- AND IT NOT CRAZY EXPENSIVE -- it is sort of modern Southern Food and YUMMY $$ - $$$

Rosa Mexicano on Lincoln road -- amazing guacamole and Sangria !! $$$

Mr Chow's at the W hotel — crazy expensive, amazing and fun Chinese food and see and be seen $$$$$

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About: Tomas and I have recently moved from Costa Rica to Aspen, Colorado. We lived in South Beach and Coral Gables for 4 years before departing for Costa Rica with our son for 5 years. We have an Argentinian Dogo and a Cane Corso -- big dogs -- that complete our family. Our business is Real Estate Development and we use HomeAway for pleasure (Barcelona, St Tropez, Salt Lake City) as well as a part of our business. The best thing about vacation rentals is the people we meet virtually and for real !!

                  Why BAIA:
                  We fell in love with this building and began to remodel it in 2004 in the middle of Elizabeth's chemotherapy for breast cancer. In February 2014, Elizabeth will reach the 10 year mark cancer free. The building is filled with good Karma -- when we had 5 major hurricane in 18 months, the trees always fell away from the building !! We love it when we stay here. It is an amazing Art Deco 1924 building that we redid down to the bare studs and rebuilt it in place for a year and a half !!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We are on a quiet residential street, but just a 10 minute walk to the Ocean and 8 minutes to bars and nightclubs -- or a $5 can ride if you are in heels !! We are 1.5 blocks from Flamingo Park with the pool and kids pool park, tennis courts, soccer fields and kids park. We are 2 blocks from Whole Foods and 5 blocks from the big Publix. We have a Deco bike station 1/2 a block away !! You don't need a car, but we have parking if you have one !! What makes our property the most unique is that is was fully remodeled and furnished to be a vacation rental and one that we use ourselves. We skimped on nothing from WiFi to a fully equipped kitchen to mattresses !!
