Interior of property was very nice and convenient.

  • 3 of 5

“Courtyard” was surrounded by tall apt buildings and in full sun, not conducive to relaxation. Location to shopping and eating areas was great and free trolley 1/2 block away. It was great to have breakfast and snacks provided!

Great spot for Rest & Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Avelino the owner was on top of it! He brought in our bags, showed us how to work everything and even bought breakfast items for us. This apartment is beautiful, modern and clean. It was the perfect spot for us because we were seeking rest & relaxation and we had a full week of it. Owner was super accommodating & very nice. We would definitely stay here again. This is our Miami spot!

Like a 5 star hotel!

  • 5 of 5

Great unit! Avelino greeted and helped us with our luggage when we arrived! So nice - like being at a hotel. He went over all the details of the unit. It is well appointed. An extra nice tough was providing items for breakfast! Over the top - extra! The pictures do not do it justice. It is newly updated and beautiful. Kitchen has everything we needed - even a Viking range! Bed is very comfortable. There is a BBQ and table to sit at outside. 2 smart tvs are included. The kitchen table is a great eat or work station. The chairs are very comfortable. I was unsure if we should stay here - I am so thankful we did. It is a great location. We will certainly stay here again.
