Recent Florida South East reviews

  • More than wonderful! Excellent accommodations!

    "My friend and I arrived to a beautiful coral rock cottage in an outrageous location! We were close to everything. The landlord was wonderful and check in was easy. We would take our coffee down the street and sit on the seawall and watch the sunrise and waves. Paradise does exist! It was a ten minute walk to the Coconut Grove Village to all the shops,restaurants and theaters. I will definitely stay there again and tell all my friends!"

  • In the shade

    "The apartment is beautiful and the view of the inter coastal is to die for however that's where it ends. The building has a low occupancy we were the only people with one other tenant on the entire 11th floor. The pool is beautiful but there is only a drop of sun at 9:30am. The rest of the day it is totally in the shade and cool. Not inviting. In addition we woke up to construction on the terrace for 2 weeks. The owner is very nice and accommodating but this is not a place to go if u want to have company at the pool or sunshine there"

  • Living where the sun shines

    "We stayed in this unit from January 5th through February 28th, 2015. Its location is excellent. The block includes a Publix grocery store, Catholic church, and place to rent bikes. The ocean beach and an excellent bike trail are a couple blocks away. The unit has everything two people need – living room, kitchen with counter for meals, bedroom, bathroom with tub/shower, and lots of storage space. It has hot water when you need it (once you realize that the kitchen sink faucet has to be turned to the right rather than the left to get hot water). The kitchen is well supplied with dishware, silverware, microwave oven, stovetop burner, toaster, and coffeemaker; it could use a toaster oven, blender, crockpot, and set of mixing bowls. The refrigerator needs defrosting monthly. The beach chairs and beach blanket are great. The building wi-fi worked well most of the time. There is a storage area for bikes outside. The laundry in the building is okay but cost us $25 a month. The outside area is nice, with a pool in the shade, but the best part in January-February is the strip near the street where the sun shines. We met other guests in passing in the elevator and the lobby. It would be nice for the hotel condominium to have a weekly reception for guests to meet each other. We had a few small problems. Street parking can be found a few blocks away, but having your car that far away is inconvenient even if the walking is healthy. The hotel condominium is in an old building built in the 1920s; use of the air conditioner and dehumidifier is required to keep the unit’s humidity at the right level; the air conditioner is set at 70-75 degrees; and their noise interferes with using the television or phone in that room. When we arrived, the unit had a very musty odor; we finally solved the problem, except for a whiff of odor as we entered the room, by replacing four ineffective air fresheners with a container of DampRid activated charcoal that we bought at Lowe’s. We did not use the dead bolt on the entry door; it can only be opened and closed from the inside and it resisted being opened, even after the maintenance guy worked on it. The weather strip at the bottom of the entry door is old and needs to be replaced. The bed’s wobbly headboard needs to be stabilized. We brought our recumbent tandem along to bike, and that was our main activity -- on Palm Beach and around southern Florida. Shark Valley Trail is the best for seeing alligators on the side of the road."

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.
