Wonderful Key Biscayne Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the holiday at this apartment and really enjoyed our stay! The building is situated on a quiet palm lined street with immaculate lawns and gardens. Very nice for evening walks! The apartment building has a retro feel, immaculate and very very nice with a private pool. The apartment itself was very clean, and very comfortable. The kitchen is small but nice with everything needed for cooking. The appliances are all new and in good working order. The living area is a nice size that worked for our family (three children). There are two bedrooms with adequate sized closets and two very nice bathrooms with beautifully tiled showers. The building has a laundry room which I found convenient. This apartment is within walking distance to nearby stores and shops and literally a five minute walk to a private beach. It is also accessible to the causeway and main land for trips to Miami. Finally, the owners are very nice, professional and prompt in responding to any issues. Overall, it was a pleasant and relaxing stay. I would rent this apartment again only next time, I would plan to stay longer.

This is a wonderful property close to the beach, steps from the pool and an easy walk to the grocery store, shops and restaurants. We often had the pool all to ourselves and felt very safe in a lovely neighborhood. Furnishings are as pictured but the unit has been significantly updated. Yes, it is surrounded by the parking lot but we didn't go to sit inside and look out of the windows. Claudia provides just about everything you need for a beach vacation including very nice beach chairs and towels. The washer and dryer in the unit was a nice convenience. We were there for 4 weeks and loved every minute of it. The owner was also very accessible by phone and graciously answered any questions we had.

Great Place for a R&R Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We visited Key Biscayne for our annual Mother-Daughter vacation. The apartment is beautiful and very clean. It is in a great centralized location so not only are you a few block from the beach, but also a 5-minute walk to the local Winn-Dixie. (A quick FYI - the public beach entrance is located just to South (left) of the private club -- use black key fob to enter/exit) The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would ever need to cook a family meal (except maybe a colander). Both sets of twin beds were very comfortable (firm). Best part is that the four twins can easily be converted into making two double beds. Washer and dryer was also a nice addition. Claudia, the owner, was readily available to answer questions. In the end, we both had a wonderful time and would recommend to anyone looking for a clean, affordable place to stay in Key Biscayne.

The apartment was great. Very clean, very nicely decorated, updated appliances including washer/ dryer and anything else you would need for your stay. We will definitely return whenever we go visit our grandkids. Thank you, Claudia!

Clean, comfortable and great location!

  • 4 of 5

This rental was perfect for days spent at the beach and nights at the many amazing restaurants and shops near by. The condo is beautifully updated and very clean. All the amenities you could want including a washer/dryer! You are one block from the beach and with the beach access you are all set. My only disappointment was there was no balcony and as first floor unit your windows look out onto the parking lot. Also, one of the bedrooms has a loud air conditioning unit in the closet, so for a light sleeper it can be disruptive. I would recommend this rental to a friend with the lack of view in mind, but otherwise, we had a wonderful time!

Wonderful location and very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with an infant and two girls ages 6 and 3. The apartment was very clean and modern and looked freshly renovated with beautiful granite, cabinets, and walk in tiled master shower. The location is superb at the end of a quiet street just a few steps to the beach; plenty to do within a few minutes drive as well - the SeaQuarium, Bill Baggs state park, an awesome huge playground in the little downtown, walking distance to Winn Dixie and some nice restaurants. The unit comes with plenty of towels and some beach chairs etc. and we loved that it had a washer dryer (my sister in law and her family were staying in another unit in the same building that had none...makes a huge difference). It's also on the ground floor right next to the little pool, so no walking up stairs and the kids could swim whenever they wanted. Would absolutely stay here again! Thanks Claudia!

Crandon Park
Car: recommended

Key Biscayne is a quiet quaint island near Miami. There are many family activities to do on the island and it is only a 10 min drive from downtown Miami, Miami Beach, Miami’s art district, and many other activities South Florida has to offer.


Crandon was the site of the Senior PGA Tour for the past 18 years, attracting golf’s greats including Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Don Messengale, Ray Floyd and Gary Player. The course is considered one of the most beautiful and difficult par-72 courses in the state. Crandon’s seventh hole is touted as “One of the Greatest Holes in Golf,” a gorgeous par 4 that doglegs to the right and sends your golf ball soaring over the beautiful bay. The course has been rated in the top ten courses by Golfweek, and one of America's top 75 upscale courses by Golf Digest.
