  • Fantastic house and location

    "The house exceeded our expectations. Great location in many ways; close to restaurants and shopping at Lincoln Rd, short walk to the beach and 10-15 minute walk to "Whole Foods". Fantastic heated swimming pool, quite child friendly. Open spaced kitchen bound together with the living room. Owner was very friendly and helpful when we had questions."

  • Location, Location, Location!

    "We stayed here for 2 months and enjoyed every minute. The view from the balcony is amazing. Easy access to restaurants, the theater and museums by the free trolley or a quick walk. The condo is spacious with a good lay out, but could use a new area carpet and the Grand concierge very helpful. we enjoyed our stay."

  • Best ocean front location in Key Biscayne

    "The bottom line is the place is awesome; go without hesitation. My family of 4 (including 2 kids, 6 and 2) stayed in this place for spring break. The location of the building is great--right next to one of the two parks on the island. The beach area is very spacious; because of the park adjacent to the building's area, there is even fewer people. We did not drive and walked everywhere - a 10-15 min walk to the CVS/grocery store/restaurant areas. The apartment is pretty big - 1,400 sq ft or so. The kitchen is very big for a 2BR condo. It even feels larger because the living area and the second bedroom are combined by default. We had breakfast every morning enjoying the ocean view; had lunch and evening desert on the balcony. There were almost no bugs (very little right after a rain at night). I slept in the second bedroom with the balcony door open enjoying the sound of the ocean while falling asleep and waking up. The condo complex has two outdoor pools (at least one is heated), a commercial grill, beautiful landscaping, beach essentials, a restaurant, gym, and more. We love nature and animals and enjoyed iguanas and other reptiles on the island. The Bill Baggs park has a historical lighthouse, bike (including family quad bikes) rentals, iguanas, a supervised beach, and one of the best restaurants for "grilled" (actually fried) fresh fish--Boaters Grill. The Crandon park has a beach type fast food place (hotdogs/burgers/ice-cream), bike rentals (yes, quad bikes), a cute "old zoo" area within with gorgeous peacocks, iguanas, and hiding crocodiles (the locals were having lunch by the ponds nevertheless), a small nature center, and a supervised beach. You can rent a boat (any kind) at several places around the Crandon marina, and explore the island and Miami by water (stop by the Boaters Grill, check out the sand bars around) or go fishing (hint: grill and eat it right on the boat). What we also liked is that people are very friendly (it's a relief after DC where people often pretend they cannot talk). All the restaurants are very kid-friendly. Because of the Latin family-oriented culture, there were kids practically at each table, staying for late dinner with their family and being kids. The place is very safe, you can see that because there were many local older kids and teenagers on the streets after dark. The island is no doubt upscale and expensive relative to many other areas in Miami, but at the same time very relaxed."

  • Lovely retreat within walking distance....

    "We had a large group of friends that all stayed at Young Mansion together for two weeks and we had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful albeit old which we loved. We cooked group meals in the large kitchen, ate in the large dining room or by the pool and lounged in the cabana all day. The pool table was a hit with everyone. We were there for the Superbowl and the living room and TV was large enough to accommodate our large group. Even the dog had fun chasing the lizards around the pool. Michael (the caretaker) was nearby and available whenever we ran across a problem or question (which is bound to happen with an old estate this large). Richard was very responsive by email or phone whenever we had a question and sent us a very exhaustive list of guidelines/suggestions to help us prior to checking in. The beds were very comfortable and water pressure/temp was great (which can be tricky in an old house) - no problems there! The only thing I can even think of to suggest would be a commercial coffee maker - we were a large group of coffee drinkers and made many pots a day with the 12 cup Mr. Coffee maker - but other than that we had a lovely time in a grand old house with many nooks and crannies to explore! We are already planning our trip back next year. Thanks again to Richard Vest and Michael Neal for a wonderful time!"

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.
