LOVELY Condo in the perfect location!
LOVELY Condo in the perfect location!
My husband and I loved the condo in South Beach. It’s in such a good location…a few blocks from the Lincoln Rd. mall (which is where we spent a good bit of time), one street over from Espanola Way, and a couple of blocks from the fabulous beach and Ocean Drive restaurants. We rented a car because we flew into Fort Lauderdale and Nuria provided residential parking passes for us for a MUCH lower rate than paying at the parking garage. If you fly directly into Miami, you won’t need a car….everything is within walking distance. I’m so glad that we decided to cancel our hotel room at one of the Marriott hotels and go with this condo because we got a lot more for less than the hotel rate! It was so convenient to have a full kitchen, and the condo was exactly as represented in the listing and pictures. There was also a laundry room a couple doors down, which was very convenient as well. Also, the booking process was so smooth and painless. Nuria was such a joy to work with, and provided so much information to make our vacation the best. She even had beach chairs and an umbrella, which saved us $$$. I certainly hope to be back in South Beach next summer, and will book again with Nuria!

Owner response: Dear Crystal, Thanks so very much for your kindest and appreciative words. It is truly such a satisfaction to have guests like you that show nothing but gratefulness and that appreciate, as much as you do, anything and everything done on my side. Likewise, it was a walk on the park working with you!!! You are so kind, and forward, as well as, so honest. Your attitude, so high class, was very much appreciated. You have no idea, how happy you made me, with your raving review. You certainly pose an additional motivating force for me to keep the good work up. It really is a huge joy for me to hear such wonderful experiences from my fabulous guests, like you. I put my heart at its fullest in this venture and you were able to notice it. I couldn´t be happier to learn you found everything to your liking, being the location of my condo, one of the most relevant points, because as you said it is within walking distance from all the interesting and fun places in South Beach. Only 2 blocks from the beach and SIMULTANEOUSLY 2 blocks from Lincoln Rd., which is extraordinarily unique, as well as 1 block from Collins Ave., 2 blocks from Ocean Drive and 1 block from Espanola Way!!!! Simply a TRIFECTA!!! I am so glad to know you used the comfortable beach chairs (that are light weight and still are 5 way position, included totally flat) and beach umbrella (in units walk-in closet) which certainly saved you a good amount of money, per day, since renting them at the beach is not cheap and it all adds up. Finally, I want to thank you very much for taking care of my place as if it was your very own. It does show the type of people you are. Please, know you will be always most welcome in my apartment. The only thing, please, be so kind to keep in mind that due to the high demand my property is experiencing, it is recommended that you contact me well in advance, unless your dates are flexible. Wishing you a great rest of the summer, while looking forward to having you again in the near future. With my very best regards, Nuria
Very nice stay

I thought the apartment was very nice. The bed was comfortable and the apartment was very cozy. The refurbished shower was a walk in style and very nice. Nuria was extrememly helpful though the who vacation planning process even after we arrived we contacted her a few times to ask questions and she was very responsive. We used the pool a few times and took the very short walk to the beach, utilizing the beach chairs that are provided. It was a very pleasant stay.

Excellent Stay - Loved the Condo!
Excellent Stay - Loved the Condo!
I've been to South Beach for many years and previously stayed in many of the boutique hotels. This unit far surpasses those and is on par with 4 star hotels. The pictures and description of the property were exactly as described in the listing. The quality of the unit and location combined with the owner’s competitive pricing makes this a very attractive unit for anyone wanting to stay in South Beach. In addition, the owner's emails describing the check-in and check out process were very helpful. The recommendations for things to do and places to eat opened my eyes to excellent dining and unique local shops outside of the Ocean drive tourist attractions. You can walk most places from the condo but for those longer commutes there is a bike rental station right across the street from the unit. I highly recommend this condo for anyone wanting a clean, well-maintained, modern place to stay in South Beach.

Owner response: Dear Mr. Paul H., It was such a pleasure having you enjoy my gorgeous condo in the heart of South Beach!!! I appreciate very much you taking care of it as if it was your very own. I thank you so very much for your kind words describing everything in regards to my property and its prime location, so accurately. I coudn´t be happier that you found everything to your liking, including the long list for recommendations on attractions and restaurants, off the beaten path, many of them, for a change, away from the most touristy areas. I will continue to forward this same list, that I update periodically, to all of my guests since all of them, including yourself, enjoyed it so very much and found it so useful, as they continue to share so with me. I will make sure my cleaning ladies are aware of the wonderful job they are doing by keeping my apartment in such a good shape and so clean for all of my nice guests pleasure. I feel so very proud of their excellent work. I couldn´t be happier for having met and maybe surpassed your expectations in regards to your stay at my property, as well as, the whole process since you contacted me for the first time, arrival instructions, recommendations for things to do and enjoy, all of which I forward all of my guests, the extraordinary location of my unit (2 blocks from the beach and simultaneously 2 blocks from Lincoln Rd.!, 1 block from Collins Ave., 1 block from Espanola Way, etc,...), the high quality accomodations and low rates, etc,... All of your compliments, coming from someone so familiar with the area and also who has stayed at numerous hotels and apartments in South Beach, like you, have an added meaning. It is so thrilling to have so many guests, end their vacation in SoBe raving about my place (in the best location in South Beach), with such a feeling of happiness and joy. You certainly made my day! And I am so glad that you found me and chose to stay at my place versus so many hundreds of options available you searched before you made a decission. Please, know you will be most welcome any time you wish to return to South Beach. So many thanks. Wishing you a fabulous rest of the summer!!! With my very best regards, Nuria
Wow! We had such a great time in Nuria's condo. It's such a beautiful place and Nuria is so kind and available for all our questions. The condo is near every attractions in South beach and so close from the beach. We will go back there anytime and we recommend the condo every time we have the chance! Thank you again Nuria for making our vacations so much better! We appreciate it so much! We really hope to be back soon... Mylène and Cassandre (Montréal, Canada)

It was a wonderful place to stay
It was a wonderful place to stay
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in Nuria’s apartment for one week while on vacation in South Beach during the month of May. The apartment was great! It was very clean and very well decorated. The location was the best ever. Just one block from Espanola Way (my favorite); two blocks from the beach (my wife’s favorite); two blocks from Lincoln Road; and a few blocks from Ocean Drive. No matter which direction you walked, you would see fun and exciting things. No use for a car here, and if you really want to go somewhere of any distance, taxi fares are reasonable. We had the time of our lives and the trip was very relaxing (so relaxing in fact that I decided to retire when I returned from our trip...no joke!) You will find Nuria a pleasure to work with. She is kind, fair and very accommodating. We looked at many apartments on the web before settling with Nuria’s apartment and we were very happy with our decision. We’ll see you next year, Nuria.

A Nice Stay
A Nice Stay
Me, my wife and our daughter (11 months old) had a great time in this apartment. We stayed for 2 weeks and had a beautiful weather for 12 days. This was great except that the daughter had a little struggle to acclimate to this warmer living. The temperature difference between Sweden (-10 deg Celsius) and SoBe (+25 deg Celsius) was tough for her the first couple of days. But after this initial time she started to really enjoy the beach and she loved to take a bath in the pool which was pretty refreshing due to cold water (approx. 18-20 deg Celsius). Me and my wife really loved the location of the appartment. You really don't need a car, everything is in walking distance and a car would just slow you down beacuse finding a parking lot can be a struggle. Just a couple of meters outside the property was a café with a tourist ticket seller (Half price tour tickets) which we can recommend for trips to Key West, Everglades and Sawgrass Mills (shopping mall). Everything was smoothly arranged from their side. Back to the appartment. The pictures describe it very well! The kitchen was great and having a dishwasher is a life saver. The only thing that we missed in the kitchen was a toaster. There was a sandwich toaster (one where you put cheese and ham between two white breads and make yourself a toast) but we really like a good old british toaster as well :) The bathroom was good with nothing to complaint about! It was just great. There was only one things that we can complain about and this is not Nurias fault. When entering the property there is a small stairway with three steps to entering the lobby. Then after the lobby, when going to the elevator, there is one more stairway with 5-7 steps and a door close to the highest step. When travelling with a child in a stroller, like we did, this meant that both of us always needed to go together in and out of the property when the stroller had to be used. It's not a very big deal but something to bear in mind for baby families. The property is not really intended for strollers. All in all was our stay in SoBe great and we can absolutely recommend this appartment. Nuria was very helpful everytime we worried about small things. Thx a lot Nuria.

Amazing Stay at South Beach!
Amazing Stay at South Beach!
We had a great time at Nurias apartment in the heart of South Beach! The apartment itself is really nice, beautiful and tidy. Everything was to our satisfaction. The property itself is well maintained and clean. When we had any problems and questions Nuria was very willing to help us out and providing us with information. The area around the apartment is great to go out, shop and have a great dinner. Its a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach. We will definitively come back to this place!

First time in SoBe - won't be the last
First time in SoBe - won't be the last
My wife and I decided to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary with a trip to Miami. We decided right off the bat that we preferred to stay in South Beach. After weeks of checking out overpriced hotels, we stumbled across this property. The pictures, location, and price attracted us to the unit immediately. Booking was easy and painless. Nuria was a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end, all of our questions were answered in a timely manner. We had an early morning arrival in Miami and since the unit was vacant the previous day, Nuria was gracious enough to let us into the unit well before the check-in time. Upon arrival, we immediately realized that the pictures and description on the website were 100% accurate. The location was PERFECT for us, everything that we needed (restaurants, shopping, groceries, etc.) was within a short walking distance. Amazing food to be had right in the immediate area! The beach was a short walk and the 2 beach chairs, umbrella, and bag were very easy to carry. All came in VERY handy as the weekend that we were in town was one of the worst weekends of the summer as far as rainfall goes. Didn't stop us from having the time of our lives. We didn't end up using the pool but it was very well kept. The tips that Nuria provides upon booking are extremely helpful. The Airport Flyer drops you off right around the corner from the unit and buses and taxis are easy to find when you walk out the front door. We have only been home for a little more than a month but we are already planning our next trip to SoBe. We will DEFINITELY be using the property again! Thank you Nuria for all of your help and hospitality!!! We did not get to meet in person, maybe next time!

I honestely don't know where to begin. My husband and I decided to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary in Miami. We searched day after day to try to find a place that would meet all of our expectations and luckily we found this apartment in the perfect location!!. Nuria, the owner was very helpful and provided a lot of useful information about the area. She paid careful attention to every detail and was available to best serve us. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated, it is just what you see in the pictures. It has everything that you would need in case you are in the mood to cook. The bed was super comfortable and the closet space was perfect!... Nuria also provided us with 2 beach towels, 2 chairs, an umbrella and a beach bag, this was definitely a big plus!.. The location of this apartment is ideal and within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants on Lincoln Road. We had breakfast a few times around the corner in The Espanola way. They have a big variety of food and prices are super affordable. We also had the burgers from a place called Five Guys across the street, they were really good! I have nothing, but positive things to say about this apartment and the owner. I would recomment this property to everybody!! =) We will definitely return next year! Nuria, it was a pleasure meeting you! Thank you so much for all your help and for making us feel like we were at home.!!

Truly a home away from home
Truly a home away from home
I honestly do not know where to begin. To start, the owner of this beautiful condo is extremely honest and kind. The pictures shown in the description are very accurate. Also, please take the owner's tip seriously, all the information given about the area were extremely precise. Overall we had a wonderful time in this home, and will be forever grateful to have had the opportunity to rent this beautiful condo. It was just blocks away from absolutely everything we needed. Also another good tip that the owner gave us: is that while saving money on cooking is wonderful, the restaurants in the area were super good and were decently priced. We had a spectacular time, and felt as if we were in another country. I look forward to returning to this condo in the next couple of years, and will strongly recommend to family and friends. Thanks again Nuria!!

Owner response: Dear Kheira & friends, I´m beyond thrilled to read your beautiful review on your stay in my apt. I´m delighted to realize there are people as generous, kind, wonderful, appreciate & thankful, as yourselves. You definitely made my day!!! And I´m the one to be grateful to you & your friends, honoring me by choosing to spend your fun summer vacation in my unit. From day 1, ever since you contacted me first, I realized how great & highly responsible people you & your friends were. We kept such nice, sincere & open communications over several months via e-mail, for a very long time. It was all along a great pleasure! I was so happy that you contacted me & booked your stay, well in advance, in order to get to stay in my highly demanded property. You have no idea how many people requested your same dates, after they had already been booked by you. Very wise of yours! Just as it has been happening with many other guests who were quick in making their choice & decission before someone else did. I also thank you so very much for your nice compliments on my honesty and how accurate the pictures shown in my listing are. It is my understanding that posting old or not genuine pics that do not match the reality, would be a huge let down for any guest, (who deserves the best service), a totally disappointment to them. Not doing so would be detrimental for my business. In the end, it would serve no purpose. After all, my biggest satisfaction is knowing that my guests had a wonderful time & their expectations were met, if not surpassed, as it has already happened with all of my former guests, that stayed in my property for the last 5 months, ever since I started to rent it for the first time (just as reflected on the numerous reviews I have received from them & were posted here). I feel very fortunate 95% of those reviews were volunteered or submitted directly, by them (as yours) to this very safe & secure managing bookings HomeAway, without a prior request from me. It is a very gratifying sentiment. So many thanks for noticing my apartment is the primest location to be found in SoBe, within short walking distance to all the fun places of great interest from different points of view, including cultural, entertaining, dining, beach, night life, stores, groceries, fun & out of the ordinary experiences, etc,... you name it! It truly constitutes a very unique location. SO GLAD U LOVED the tips I sent you!!! I´d LOVE to have u back ALWAYS! Best 2 YOU ALL!!

My fiancé and I spent 4 days in Miami and had a great time. We stayed at this apartment which was very comfortable and very chic. The location is just priceless; there are a number of restaurants and cafes and the beach is just 2 blocks away... Nuria, the owner, was very helpful and provided a lot of useful information about the area. We will definitely come back!

Owner response: Dear Mariana, Thanks so much for taking the time to review my property, as well as, your wonderful experience at it during your stay in the heart of South Beach. I have to agree with you that the LOCATION OF MY APARTMENT is, exactly, as you said ¨PRICELESS¨. Everyone that stayed in my unit, said the same thing. There is no better location to stay at, due to the fact that my apt. is in the core of South Beach, within walking distance to ALL of the most interesting, fun & touristy spots that no one should not miss. And the best of all, ALL OF THEM ARE WITHIN A SHORT WALK AWAY. That is ONLY 2 Blocks away from the BEACH, 2 Blocks to Ocean Drive ONLY & also, ONLY 2 Blocks away from LINCOLN ROAD (my favorite spot where most locals hang out, & chill, while relaxing at one of the numerous restaurants, all of which count with ¨AL FRESCO TERRACES¨). Definitely a hard to beat location!!! I truly appreciate you noticing the good & chic taste of the décor, together with how comfortable the apt. felt to you. It has been decorated, as if it was a LUXURIOUS HOTEL ROOM, keeping comfortability & gorgeous look, as top priorities. Due to the HIGH DEMAND my property has experienced so far, I´m introducing new upgrades & extra amenities, that I am sure future guests (including yourself, when you return, will enjoy very much). Once all of them have been implemented, new pictures will be posted in this vacation rental web site. Your compliments on my person, mean the world to me!!! My greatest satisfaction is knowing that in ONLY 5 months, since I started renting my unit for the first time, ever, all of my guests have been extremely happy with their choice of my property, as their home away from home. I´m very happy to learn that the 6 PAGE LONG DOC. on SUGGESTIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS for places to see, visit, tour, eat, have a drink, ¨Happy Hour¨, etc,... I forward ALL OF MY GUESTS, within 24 HOURS of THEIR BOOKING, were very useful to you. I feel that getting tips from a local, versus those in a tourist guide, make a difference. Many of the listed items surprised those who were already quite familiar with SoBe, including former residents of SOBE. They mentioned that they found the list extraordinarily interesting, including some ¨OFF THE BEATEN PATH¨, away from tourists, what made their stay even more special. Thank you very much for your kindness, time & attention to the details & nice review. Looking foward to have you back!!! With Best My Wishes, Nuria
My wife and I have been visiting South Beach for 15 years. Often times, a property will look great in the photos but really disappoints in person. Not so with this condo. It is exactly as advertised, clean, nicely appointed and well maintained. We loved our 8 day stay there. Nuria, the owner, was very pleasant to work with and extremely helpful. She really cares about her guests and tries to assure a great visit for them. We will definitely return again.

Owner response: Dear Russ & Cyndi, Thanks so very much for your kindest review. I am so happy to learn that you found my apartment, EXACTLY, just as it is described in this web site & the pictures I posted, matching EXACTLY, what my unit looks like, in person. I find it is a priority to be honest & provide my future guests with true information because not doing so would be deceiving & it would serve no genuine purpose. I thank you very much for noticing such a relevant fact & also for sharing it here, with everyone, who may become potential guests of my gorgeous property. Fortunately, all other former guests of my unit agreed in their prior reviews with yours! I couldn´t be happier! As a result, it is wonderful to note the high number of inquiries & bookings that I have been receiving in only 5 months (when I started to rent my apartment for the first time). My team & myself are truly thrilled that my property continues to be one of the top most desirable places to enjoy a great vacation at. We are filled with enthusiasm & we are already planning on introducing additional amenities, usually provided at high-end hotel rooms. Our goal is to succeed & have our guests love their place of choice, having them return any time they wished, as well as, being recommended by all of you, my kind guests, to your friends & family. I´m delighted to read that you found my apartment clean, nicely appointed & well maintained. It means a lot to me that you noticed so. I´ve already shared your nice comments with my staff, who got really excited. I really loved sharing your compliments with them because it´s a huge motivating force to keep up the great job they already do. Likewise, your compliments on myself, mean the world to me! I thank you very much for your kind gesture. I will continue to make sure my guests have a phenomenal experience while at my home, doing my best for them to enjoy a very special & unique vacation, they will remember for life. It´s my pleasure to share with my guests, within 24 hours of their booking, a 6 page list of recommendations & suggestions for things to do while in South Beach, that many have found most helpful. The type of things, usually, not covered in any tourist guide. As a local, I know of places that tourists may not be aware of. Although, in your case, since you´ve been visiting SoBe for 15 years, you probably knew most of them. I appreciate very much you taking care of my unit as if it was your own. Best regards, Nuria
Great first time in SOBE

We arrived late on Thrusday night and from the beginning were very pleased by Nuria's excellent customer service. She paid careful attention to every detail and was available to best serve us, The apartment was very clean and very comfortable. It is just was you see in the picture. It has plenty of space, everything you need in case you are in the mood to cook, beach chairs so you don't pay the fee at the beach, an umbrella that came in very handy with the gorgeous, sunny days we spent at the beach. We walked to every single spot we wanted to go. It is well located and there's plenty of things to do (restaurants, clubs, bars, tattoo parlors, internet cafe, bike rentals, the beach, shops, etc.) It was just me and my girlfriend and we felt safe at all times. We specially enjoyed eating dinner at Tantra, eventhough it is pricey, the food and service were excellent. We totaly would recommend this property to anybody that wants to spend some fun dasy in South Beach.

Great Sourh Beach Location
Great Sourh Beach Location
I travel to South Beach often to visit my family there and have stayed at various condos but I must say that Nuria's lovely accommodations are the best! First, the location is ideal and within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants on Lincoln Road. Espanola Way is just around the corner and the beach a short walk away - it couldn't be better. The condo is comfortable and clean and very tastefully decorated - Nuria has made sure that her guests will feel at home, which I did. I enjoyed my stay very much and look forward to returning. Oh, I should also mention that there is a wonderful cafe right next door where you can get the best salads and sandwiches and cappuccino and a convenience store across the street for anything else you may need in the way of groceries or other necessities. And, after a day on the town in South Beach, it was just great to go back to the condo to the fabulous shower and comfortable bed. Thank you again, Nuria, for thinking of everything to ensure a pleasant stay for your guests.

Owner response: Dear Rose, I am most grateful for your kindest comments on my beautiful apartment (as well as my person) and its prime location. I truly appreciate you taking the time, despite your busy schedule, to send such a nice review to this web site that manages the bookings. I am so thrilled to read that you have been to South Beach many times before, and despite of having stayed in several other apartments, each of those times, you found my condo THE BEST OF ALL!!! I am so pleased to hear so!!! You definitely made my day, my week and my year!!! As the terrible perfectionist I am, your nice and honest comments mean the whole world to me and are my motivating force to keep the good work up, as it is reflected through the high number of reservations I have been booking, as well as, the nice reviews from recent past guests, after only a few months since I started to rent my unit for the first time, ever. I thank you so very much for finding my décor style tasteful. I enjoy very much interior design and I am glad to learn that you liked my choices in that regard for the apartment. I am most thankful to you for noticing how clean and comfortable you felt my apartment is. I will make sure that I pass on this information to my exceptional team members in charge of the cleaning duties. I feel very fortunate to count on such competent and efficient helpers. I know for a fact that they will be most happy and proud that their extraordinary job got noticed, once again. So many thanks. I highly appreciate the notes in regards to your recommendations on the great café next door, and stores nearby, that future guests will have the chance to keep in mind. You honored me by choosing my condo, versus any of the many available ones in South Beach, for the last of your visits in town. It was a pleasure having you as my guest in my apartment. I need to thank you very much for taking care of it as if it was your own. Please, know that any time you decide to visit your family in South Beach, you will be most welcome in my property. With my best wishes, Nuria
Beautiful and very convenient place for vacation!
Beautiful and very convenient place for vacation!
Me and my husband just returned back from our vacation at SOBE. We had a wonderful stay. The apartment is very good. It is very clean, beautifully decorated and has a great convenient location. It had everything we needed during our stay. The owner of the apartment, Nuria, is very thoughtful person: the beach chairs, towels, umbrella, magnifying mirror and kitchen utensils …were priceless. Our Special Thanks to her are for all instructions and suggestions, she sent as l regarding the City, transportation and restaurants. All that was a great help during our stay which we enjoyed very much. If anyone from our friends will look for place to stay in Miami Beach, we definitely will recommend this unit in the center of SOBE close to Lincoln Ave and ocean at the same time.

Owner response: Dear Natalya and Vitaly, Thanks so much for being so kind forwarding such a nice review on your experience while staying in my gorgeous apartment, immediately after returning home. The fact that you took the time to do so means a lot to me. I am so happy to hear that you found everything, just as expected, and exactly as it is described in my property listing online. One of the things that matters to me the most is that my guests find everything immaculate clean and comfortable. I will never be thankful enough to my team members who will be most excited to hear that you commented on their exceptional work. That always makes them smile and motivates them to keep performing an excellent job. I appreciate very much you noticing my apartment GREATEST PRIME LOCATION IN THE HEART OF SOUTH BEACH, ONLY 2 blocks from Lincoln Rd., 2 blocks from Ocean Drive and again ONLY 2 blocks to the BEACH (very few apartments are found right in the middle of those 3 South Beach main attractions) all within very short walk distance. I was very glad to learn from you that you used the beach chairs, beach towels and sun umbrella (inside the apartment walk-in closet) for your full enjoyment at the exciting, relaxing, gorgeous and world known SoBe, beach!!! (renting 2 beach chairs and umbrella, on everyday basis, can be quite pricey). I am most thrilled to read on your comments on the extra amenities, such as the magnifying mirror, and the kitchen utensils that you found useful to you. And the fact that the list for recommendations and suggestions I forwarded you right after you booked your stay was so helpful to you. I thank you so very much for sharing with me that you found my unit beautifully decorated, since interior design is one of my passions. Your compliments made me so very happy. I could not be most grateful to you for taking care of my unit, as if it was your own. Thanks so much for being such wonderful and caring guests. So many thanks for your appreciation. I will be most delighted to have you stay in my unit, any time you wish, as well as any of your friends, you have already recommended my apartment to, who will be as welcome as yourselves. Thanks a lot for speaking so highly of my property to anyone interested in traveling to South Beach. With my best wishes to you, looking forward to your next visit in South Beach, Nuria
The condo was great. It was perfect for me and 2 girlfriends to celebrate my 40th birthday. The condo was in an excellent location and was very clean. The owner was very attentive prior to my arrival and made sure I had all the info I needed for my stay. Thanks again Nuria for allowing me to stay and celebrate my special birthday in your condo, it was a pleasure.

Owner response: Estimados Katalina y Enrique, Muchísimas gracias por vuestra gentil y generosa recomendación. Es un verdadero placer para mi, saber que habéis disfrutado de una estancia tan agradable, y exitosa, bajo todo punto de vista. Estoy re-feliz de que lo hayáis pasado tan bien en South Beach y en particular en mi apartamento. Os agradezco muchísimo por haber percibido la limpieza que mis apreciadas colaboradoras llevan a cabo con gran eficacia. Este es un aspecto que considero de gran relevancia, y siendo tan perfeccionista como soy, me siento muy afortunada de contar con la ayuda de dos estupendas y profesionales señoras, cuyo trabajo considero de gran valor. También aprecio muchísimo el hecho de que os hayáis dado cuenta de la seguridad que ofrece la ubicación de la propiedad, así como la proximidad, a distancia a pie, de todos los lugares de mayor interés en SoBe, tales como la playa, Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road, The New World Symphony by Frank Gehry, los mejores restaurantes y clubes de moda, las famosísimas tiendas, etc,... sólo por hacer mención a algunas de las numerosísimas atracciones a disposición de residentes y turistas, en la zona. Me alegra mucho que las recomendaciones y sugerencias acerca de restaurantes, tiendas, clubes etc,... hayan sido de vuestro interés y os hayan sido útiles, contribuyendo en gran manera a que vuestra estancia en South Beach fuera fabulosa. Muchísimas gracias por vuestra amabilidad, tiempo y gentileza. Saludos muy cordiales, Nuria
We stayed in this charming studio apartment for 5 days and loved every minute of it. Nuria is a very charming and gracious owner who went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. The location is well within easy walking distance to everything South beach has to offer. It is in a very safe location with access to tour guide booths, atm's internet cafe and many other amenities. It is a very clean apartment and it was quiet at night. It is not right on the nightclub streets so there is not alot of party noise to keep you up. If you want to go clubbing it is a very safe and easy 1-3 block walk to get you to nightclub activities. I was there with an exchange student from Poland to attend Wrestlemania. It was this girl's dream and Nuria providing us with reliable and affordable lodging made this possible. Thank You Nuria~!

Owner response: Dear Anna, So many thanks for such a wonderful review and for your appreciation, as well as your compliments. I am truly happy!!! My guests´ solid and constant gratefulness is my motivating force to keep my standards the highest possible, in regards to all of the aspects involved in the process of renting my unit including the before, during and after stay, in my gorgeous and best location place in THE HEART OF SOUTH BEACH. I feel tremendously fortunate for having the best guests in the world stay in my property, who like you, took care of it as if it was your own. Thanks so much for such a courtesy. I am so glad that you mentioned about my charming apartment, as per your kind words, being clean, because I am constantly raving about my fabulous cleaning ladies. I could not have asked for a better team of people, who do their utmost to make sure we meet and surpass our guests expectations. I am EXTREMELY proud of them. As I always do, I shared with them your kindest review, and they are as delighted as I am, to know that you found everything perfect! I am so glad to read that you found, as I did (when I was living in the unit) that the location is really hard to match because it is within walking distance to everything, but simultaneously, not right next to the club or disco itself, or populated spot. That would have been unbearable, together with an uncomfortable and unhappy surprise for many (as it may happen with other rental apartments in SoBe, as it is such a night life oriented place) who would like to get a good night sleep. Thanks so much for adding the tips such as the coffee place next door to my apartment, Café Mauro (best Italian coffee!), which is also an internet café place. You are so generous for sharing with everyone, who will read your comments such an outstanding review with 5 stars, and also for making your exchange student wish come true!!! I am sure that all exchange students would LOVE to have you in the programs they participate. You are truly AMAZING!!! So, so, so many thanks. Warm regards, Nuria
Wonderful stay in South Beach
Wonderful stay in South Beach
I've traveled quite a bit throughout the States and abroad. Finding a nice apartment, in a prime location, with a pleasant and thoughtful owner is a trifecta that is near impossible to find these days. Nuria's apartment meets these 3 criteria. The owner is amazingly sweet and helpful. The studio apartment is clean, quaint, and much nicer than most Miami apartments and the location in SoBe is superb. I couldn't have been happier with my stay here. Nuria, big thanks for sorting through all the red tape of your initial booking and the continual contact via email and phone - it was very reassuring.

Owner response: Dear Dr. Joseph S., ¨TRIFECTA¨!!! I simply LOVED the way you described the before, during and after your experience, as well as knowing how much you enjoyed your stay in my beautiful and highly demanded apartment, in SoBe. Last time, I heard that adjective, ¨TRIFECTA¨ was at least 3 years ago… You brought back to mind a favorite term of mine. Thanks so much for doing so and your wonderful comments. It truly means the world to me knowing that I met your expectations and so did my unit. It has been a real pleasure keeping in touch with you, all along this whole process. I am hoping we will continue to be in contact. I appreciate very much that you noticed the great job that my phenomenal cleaning ladies do. I always love to share this part with them, because they feel so excited that their immaculate job is noticed by my kind guests. They truly feel passion for the job they perform (which reflects clearly in the top-notch quality of their work). You certainly made their day (and mine, too) when I passed on to them your kind comment on their well-beyond average cleaning job. I feel so fortunate to have screened the best cleaning ladies for my team. I couldn´t be happier!!! Your extraordinary review brings my unit to a whole new level, since I am well aware of your high standards and so were your prior experiences, traveling all over the world, and having stayed in hundreds of different hotels and other lodging options. I couldn´t be more delighted. I truly appreciate it!!! I am the one to thank you for your courtesy in sharing with everyone who will read your review such sincere and kind compliments. I am so THRILLED!!! I will NEVER forget you were my first booking ever, about 2 months ago, on same day my listing went ¨LIVE¨. I need to thank you so much for your patience while I was learning about how this reservations web site works (I am a pro now). You helped me a great deal and you were incredibly patient and understanding. I am very grateful to you. I am most thankful for such gracious and kind comments on my property and myself, and your recommendations on my unit to your family and friends. Wishing you the best. With my warmest regards, Nuria
EXCELLENT! A MUST STAY
EXCELLENT! A MUST STAY
OMG! I could not have asked to stay at a better place in Miami. The condo is great for three best friends or even a small family of three. I stayed with my two best friends, the condo bulding was clean and quite, perfect for getting a good night sleep. Even if you are like me and plan to go for Spring Break and could care less about sleep, the condo is still perfect. And the price was excellent.The condo is filled with amneties such as a ful kitchen, washer/ dryer, television, pool, towels, beach chairs and more. Nuria, the condo owner, is so kind, understanding, and will make sure you enjoy your stay. Everything is in walking distance: restaurants, clubs,stores, tattoo shops, and of course the famous OCEAN DRIVE is only a few minutes away. Finding a hospitable place to stay on vacation is soo important, and I can honestly say if you stay here you won't regret it.

Owner response: Dear Teneisha and friends, Wow!!! You are sooooo Sweet!!! Thanks so much for your kind review and comments on my apartment. I am so happy to learn that you enjoyed it so much!!!! I am so delighted to read that you found everything perfect, including the amenities I make available to you, my nice guests. And that you thought everything was in order. But most importantly, the fact that you mentioned it was so clean, means a lot to me because I feel so privileged to have in my team, the best cleaning crew, in the whole world!!! They are, as perfectionist as I am, and therefore our vision about what the unit must look like and feel to my appreciated guests, is the exact same. We are very well coordinated and we work together with the highest references in mind. I will certainly share with them about your comment, because I know they will be thrilled and it will constitute a motivating force for them to keep up their great job, as they have been doing so far, knowing their excellent job, is highly appreciated by my kind guests. It is true, that the fact that the unit is on the top floor, not having anyone on top of you, in SoBe where many floors are hardwood, makes it a truly quiet place (so you can enjoy a good night sleep) while still in the heart of SoBe and within easy walking distance to all the action that SoBe entertainment has to offer (versus a place right on the same block where all the clubs that are open until 4.00am or 5.00am). I am glad to know that you enjoyed the beach chairs, sun-umbrella and beach towels in the walk-in closet, for fabulous warm and sunny FUN days at the beach, only 2 blocks away. I appreciate very much you taking care of it as if it was your own. That was so courteous of yours. And well, what can I say about your compliments on myself??? I am blushing... You made my day!!! Thanks so much! They mean the world to me and I am so grateful to you. My main goal in mind is that you get what you deserve. Thanks so very much from the bottom of my heart, for recommending my property as ¨The Place¨ in SoBe, as an affordable, clean, perfect and beautiful apartment for other future guests to enjoy. Looking forward to having you again in the near future. Be well and take care. Best regards, Nuria

My stay here along with two of my friends was amazing. Nuria played a big part in us having an amazing spring break. It was almost like having a relative there to look out for us. The place was beautiful and so clean when we got there. It is a great location just a few minutes walk from everything. Nuria provided us with plenty of recommendations on places to eat. Charlotte's bakery across the street is delicious. I recommend this unit to everyone!

Owner response: Dear Danita and friends, Thanks so much for such kind words on my unit. I am beyond thrilled that you enjoyed your time in SoBe, while staying in my gorgeous apartment. I sure appreciate you noticing my creative side reflected in the interior design of my place. It is thanks to nice guests, like you, so appreciative, that inspire me beyond I can express in writing!!! I am pretty sure that I will continue to use my interior design skills on the unit. I feel so honored that you considered me a big part of your AMAZING SPRING-BREAK!!! Thanks so much!!! I am so grateful to you for realizing my amazing cleaning ladies´ great job. I feel very fortunate to have them as my helpers. They count on same high standards as mine, so as a result, we make a fabulous team. I will make sure, I share with them your thoughtful comment, as it will make them feel so well and appreciated. They are the best! Aren´t those Charlotte´s Bakery pastries and empanadas out of this world? I love them, myself!!! And the best part is they are freshly made, on daily basis, from scratch, the old way. My favourite are the butter croissants. So many thanks for your nice words. You are very generous, sweet and very fine young ladies. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Be well and take care. Warmest regards, Nuria
Great location near the beach!!
Great location near the beach!!
We came to South Beach for the first time to attend the South Beach Wine and Food Festival. The best thing about staying in this apartment was the location. We were only a few blocks from all the events and were able to walk everywhere without worrying about parking. There is a little food market across the street and several restaurants in the area. We had great cuban sandwiches at David's Cafe on Collins. The Pan Con Lechon was delish! The beach was also very beautiful with nice turquoise water and white sand. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfy. The kitchen has the basics but we didn't need to use it since were were eating out or at the festival most of the time we were there. Nuria was also very helpful and responsive. We'd definitely stay there again upon a future visit to Miami Beach.

Owner response: Hi Carol & Chuck, So many thanks for your detailed explanations about your numerous and fun experiences in South Beach, while staying in my apartment. I am so HAPPY to learn that you found everything EXCELLENT and you ENJOYED it so much and had such a GREAT TIME!!! I am SO DELIGHTED to hear from you, that you found my brand new MEMORY FOAM firm mattress so comfortable. Thanks so much for sharing. I truly appreciate your review and kindness, taking the time to evaluate the accomodations provided, in my immaculate clean apartment. And what is really relevant, how centrally located my unit is, right in the HEART OF SOUTH BEACH (SoBe) within walking distance to everywhere of interest: ONLY 2 blocks to the beach, ONLY 2 blocks to Lincoln Road, ONLY 2 blocks to Ocean Drive, ONLY 1 block from pictoresque, Espanola Way, etc,... and so many more. As you were able to realize, my unit is in the middle of all the fun, entertainment, clubs, incredibly great restaurants, events, fairs, festivals, concerts, movie theater, Convention Center, etc,... Please, next time, be aware of The New World Symphony campus, that is ONLY 2 BLOCKS AWAY from my apartment in South Beach (Miami Beach). It is the most beautiful brand new building designed by Frank Gehry, (same Californian architect who created the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Hotel Winery Marques de Riscal, in La Rioja, Spain, as well). It offers free concerts on the park, where you can pic-nique, on weekly basis. Additionally, on Wednesdays at 8.00pm a magnificent movie, is displayed in the giant screen, that is actually, the facade of the building, with the best sound ever, also outdoors and free of charge on the park. YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT!!!! The location of my apartment allows you to enjoy all these places, events, and activities that are within walking distance, so there is no need for a car. I would love to see you return to South Beach and you will be most welcome!!! So many thanks. Take care, Nuria
Hello Nuria My husband and I had the most wonderful time staying in Miami. The best was your condo, it truly was our home away from home. But what made it truly fantastic was the way you took care of us like family. We came in so late with the flight and you were there at 12:30 at night to help us get settled. We were truly blessed to have met you and cant wait til next year when we'll be coming back for a family reunion. Thank you so much we love you and we lovw the condo. susanne and mike ewald

GREAT LOCATION!!! SO CLOSE to the BEACH!!!
GREAT LOCATION!!! SO CLOSE to the BEACH!!!
My husband and I, enjoyed a wonderful and warm vacation away from our usual European cold months, at this time of the year. This beautiful and brand new condo, we stayed at, not only met our expectations, but well surpassed them. There was no need for a car (what a waste! as we rented a car that stayed parked during our entire stay), so close and within walking distance, this perfectly located condo we chose, was from all the entertainment, dining, beach, all the happening locations, etc,... Next winter, we will skip the car rental. The condo was, just as described in the info provided, in the heart of South Beach. 2 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from Ocean Dr., 2 blocks from Lincoln Rd., just in the middle of everything. The condo was impeccable in terms of tidy and clean. We could have not asked for a cleaner, nicer place. Truly immaculate. Very comfortable, and relaxing. Very nicely decorated. Super classy. We just loved it! Thank you so much, Nuria. You have done a great job with your unit. You made us feel at home, and we enjoyed our stay more than ever before. We hope to return soon!

Owner response: Georgia, So many thanks for your kind and nice review. I am so glad to hear that you and your husband had a great time while in my property. I truly appreciate your detailed explanations about the different aspects you enjoyed about your stay in SoBe and specifically in my unit. I totally understand about the cold weather in Europe, during the winter months. That is only one of many different and wonderful things about South Beach: warm weather and warm atmosphere due to the diversity that this part of the US offers. People from all over the world make of SoBe a very special, unique location, with an extremely colorful environment. I truly appreciate your comments about my place décor and proper cleaning. I am very picky in that regards and for that reason, I feel very fortunate to count on such a beyond amazing cleaning lady, who is both very responsible and particular. I will make sure that I let her know your compliments in that regards. I know she will feel very happy as she feels passion for her job that she masters. Thanks so much. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Take care, Nuria
