  • AMAZING! !

    "Wanted to thank Jeff for having us at this amazing unit. From every step in our booking he was there to answer all questions and accommodate us with whatever we needed or required. The property it self was absolutely beautiful, well kept, staff extremely friendly and we felt like home. The unit was very clean, huge, the best view in Miami in our opinion, up-to-date furnishings, decor, accessories, everything about our vacation exceeded our expectations. Grocery, pharmacy, restaurants across the street lots within walking distance if you choose not to have a car, we did and the parking was included in the rental which was perfect. Our hats off to you Jeff on a job well done!!!!! Looking forward to our December vacation :)"

  • Mostly highs with some lows

    "My wife and I (late 50's) stayed here a week in high season and enjoyed it. The condo is equipped well enough with good sized bathrooms, an adequate kitchen, open space and great views. Understand this is an 11th floor unit, which means you park overnight in an inside garage on the 5th floor. Then you enter the building and take an elevator up to 11th floor. You can walk to a couple of good restaurants nearby (Frankie's across the street and Hurricane Alley a couple blocks away) but you need to take the car to get most everywhere else, beaches included. The pool downstairs is nice (though kept very warm) and shaded throughout most of the day because of the buildings which surround it on 3 sides. People are friendly and there's good security regarding entry. Some noise issues with bands playing live music at 2 restaurants sharing the same real estate, but overall the space is comfortable, very clean and the panoramic views from high are wonderful. With a few minor improvements (more than 2 chairs for wrap around balcony, information for tourists not familiar with area) we would happily return or recommend this property for couples or families with older kids."

  • SIMPLY THE BEST! Fabulous Home Away from Home

    "My husband and I would like to express our thanks to Gloria for her personal attention to our comfort. The booking process was very easy--Gloria is efficient, and proved to be trustworthy and reliable. The apartment's location is unrivaled--entirely oceanfront, and walking distance to anything we desired. The decor is luxurious and relaxing. No expense was spared on the renovation. Everything in this apartment is Deluxe. The pictures posted don't do enough justice to show how delighted we were with the accommodations. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, and we appreciated the cleanliness of the entire apartment. Clearly, that's a priority of the owner, and we were impressed with the granite and easy-care travertine floors and walls. Through big picture windows of master bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen, we were constantly entertained by the ever-changing views of the sea in all its forms: Calm as glass in the morning, a parade of sailboats before sunset, fun filled swimmers by day, and moonlight reflections by nightfall. We also spent time at the nearby Festival Flea Market, Coconut Creek Casino, especially for the musical entertainment, indulged at Kilwin's Ice Cream nightly, and shopped weekly at the green market. The adjacent Marriott has fabulous spa services. Only one warning: Bring sunglasses and sunscreen!"

  • A wonderful stay...

    "We just returned from 8 days in Key Biscayne. We found the owner to be attentive and considerate. We called him last minute on Friday asking if the apartment was available one day early as we had booked a different apartment in Miami for two days prior, it was awful. David took care of everything and even gave us a deal on that extra night stay without us even asking, which was incredibly thoughtful. Although we did not have an ocean view, there is a view of the bay in the far distance and the grounds of the beautiful Ritz Carlton. This is truly a great deal, you get the all the amenities of the hotel while still having an apartment and a kitchen so you aren't breaking your budget having to eat out every meal (especially when you have young children who wake early and go through a gallon of milk in 5 days). Having the amenities of the Ritz Carlton was a huge plus the pool, the staff, and not to be missed the Photo Concierge was amazing. It was also great that a parking spot was available to us, since it has its own private enterance and a great location right next to elevators, and not dealing with Valet everytime, especially with the July 4th being a busy weekend. We were able to leave without having to deal with the hassle. The island is amazing and beautiful so worth exploring, and everything is within walking distance. We loved Billy Baggs (great light house), Crandon park (the gardens and nature center should not be missed.) with great beaches for young children. The park in the middle was great. The restaurants on the island are amongst the best. Our favs were Ceviche Bar, Artisan, Milanezza, the Lighthouse cafe and the Rusty Pelican are not to be missed. We had the best time and will definitely be returning to this tropical island retreat that made us feel like we were in the Caribbean, South America, and Europe all in little island. You will come back feeling refreshed."

Miami Beach Travel Tips

While it's often considered a part of Miami itself, Miami Beach is actually its own separate area, but you'll find just as much excitement and diversity here. Miami Beach blends together a variety of cultures and heritages to create an eclectic, interesting and thrilling place with plenty to do. You'll find a big Latin influence that'll have you dancing until the wee hours of the morning in a nightclub or savoring each bite of a delicious meal at one of Miami Beach's local restaurants.

There's a plethora of culture to take in here as well, from awesome examples of Art Deco architecture to museums depicting the area's history, beautiful artwork and everything in between. When you're not exploring the various attractions, you're sure to spend plenty of time outdoors soaking up the Florida sun on the plethora of beaches or taking a hike and enjoying the natural scenery. With Miami Beach's subtropical climate, it's the perfect place for a winter getaway to escape the dreary cold, but it's great to visit all year round.

Things to Do in Miami Beach

- Bass Museum of Art: Plan a trip to the Bass Museum of Art where you can see masterpieces dating to the Renaissance all the way through modern times. The museum was founded in 1963 by a private donation from John and Johanna Bass. You'll see such artists as Peter Paul Rubens, Ferdinand Bol, Cornelis van Haarlem, Armand Guillaumin and Benjamin West.

- Miami Beach Botanical Garden: Experience the tropical beauty of Miami Beach with a visit to the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. You'll find 2.6 acres of green space, originally founded in 1962 and updated in 2001 with a landscape renovation. As you stroll through the grounds, you'll be sure to marvel at the native Floridian plants and trees such as orchids, cycads, palms and bromeliads, among others. Stroll through the Japanese Garden and let the flowing sounds of the ponds and fountains relax you. There's even a wetland with a mangrove and pond apple trees.

- Lincoln Road: You'll want to do some shopping during your trip to Miami Beach, and a great place to get some retail therapy or pick up some souvenirs is Lincoln Road. This pedestrian road is a great place to take a walk and peruse the shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. You'll find a variety of stores selling clothing, home hoods, bath products, sweets and everything in between. Some shops include American Apparel, LUSH, Dylan's Candy Bar and Aldo, as well as local stores and boutiques. After you've shopped 'til you dropped, swing by an eatery or cafe to refuel with some caffeine or a bite to eat.

- Art Deco Walking Tour: Miami Beach is a haven for Art Deco architecture that is truly a sight to see. Art Deco flourished in the 20th century after World War I. It brought together traditional ideas mixed with imagination that's often characterized by bold, geometric shapes and patterns, rich colors and major ornamentation. Visit the Art Deco Welcome Center to take a 90-minute walking tour where you'll see not only Art Deco but Mediterranean Revival and Miami Modern styles of structures throughout the Miami Beach Architectural Historic District.

"'Dining in Miami Beach'"

- OLA: With such a large Latin American and Spanish influence in Miami Beach, dining on food from these regions is a must. OLA offers delicious Latin American cuisine from acclaimed Latin chef Horacio Rivadero. Be sure to try his ceviches, mustard mojo, beef tenderloin churrasco or Florida sweet corn empanada. Pair your meal with a wine from the carefully chosen list by sommelier Albert O'Mahen to complement your bold dishes. Zagat rated OLA as being extraordinary with a 27 rating, and Food and Wine Magazine named Rivadero "best chef for the gulf region 2012."

- Joe's Stone Crab: For 102 years, Joe's Stone Crab has been a staple of Miami Beach pleasing residents and visitors alike with its delicious seafood meals. It'd be a travesty to visit this Florida city without a trip to Joe's, where you'll find a welcoming atmosphere built on a love of food, friends and family. Joe Weiss opened his lunch counter in 1913 where he served up fish sandwiches and fries, and since then the business has become a local favorite where you can sample crab cakes, yellowfin tuna, lobster and mussels. If you're not a fan of seafood, there's still plenty of options here from the chicken to the sirloin burger, rack of lamb, filet mignon and much more.
