"We kicked off 2015 by spending 4 weeks here in January and there's not much more we can say other than "ditto" to the superlatives noted in reviews by previous renters...this condo is fabulous! It's as nice as the pictures show, and the views of Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami, particularly in the evening, are spectacular. The location is ideal: an easy walk to the supermarket, walking distance to nearby museums, the AA Arena, Bayside Marketplace, and the Wynnwood Art District. While it is helpful to have a car, especially if you want to go to Miami Beach/South Beach (approx. 5-minute drive), you can get around much of Miami using the free MetroMover or free trolley, which can be picked up at the nearby Omni/Arscht Station, a 5-minute walk from the condo. We went as far as Coral Gables and Cocoanut Grove using this free transportation. There is also regular bus service to the beaches.
We loved the condo itself: sleek, modern, clean, and well-stocked for a lengthy stay. We appreciated the architectural details of the condo, which were built by the talented carpenter/condo-owner, Brian. We especially loved the oh-so-comfortable king-sized bed. If you have guests staying over, the pull-out Diletto sofa is quite comfortable as well. The building (Opera Tower) is well-maintained and located in a safe area with a nice mix of families, young professionals, and retirees. There's a very nice pool/deck area and workout gym, which we used during our stay. The nearby Venetian Causeway is also great for walks/runs.
In every aspect, Brian goes above and beyond to provide an enjoyable stay for his guests and he couldn't be any nicer. We can't say enough good things about this rental and highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Miami...thank you, Brian!"
