About michael steines

Well, I was born in germany, moved to switzerland and the to the US at age 8. I lived in New York for many years and love to travel and by accident discovered south beach about 20 years ago. Ended up buying this condo and have been living between NY and south beach. I just love it here and have recently purchased another 2 story condo on the 48th and 49th floor with 20 ft. (7 meter) wall of glass in the living room, in downtown Miami, which is where i live now as well. I am completely renovating it so that it will be as beautiful as the one listed here in south beach. Will list that one here also when ready. Miami is becoming the New York of the south.

michael steines purchased this condo in 2000

Why michael steines chose Miami Beach

I love this location because it offers a bit of serenity and just a short walk away, all the excitement that south beach is known for all over the world. The views of the ocean are beyond spectacular from the large windows in my corner unit.

We have been staying in condos in Miami Beach for the past 15 years. This condo is by far the nicest one we have stayed in. It is luxurious, has all modern conveniences, and the views from both balconies are spectacular! The owner, Michael, is extremely helpful with any questions regarding the condo or basic questions about Miami Beach. He's amazingly accommodating and doesn't make you feel uncomfortable asking a lot of questions.

One balcony overlooks the inlet where cruise ships come in and out of Port of Miami. The other balcony overlooks the beach and city. These views are fabulous and indeed memorable. Don't forget to bring your camera!

Because of the location of the condo on the 31th floor, there is always a delightful breeze on both balconies. As I am a mosquito magnet, there are never any problems sitting on the balcony or leaving balcony doors open.

The location of the building is excellent. It is a great area near good restaurants, a beautiful walking path, and convenient to the beach.

Anyone staying in this condo will love it and have a wonderful experience. We would recommend it to family and friends.

Exceeded all expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Yes the photos look great but honestly you will be blown away when you open the door and see the place for yourselves. The attention to detail in the finishes is impressive and five star hotel unnecessary - such as the Bose surround sound in every room! The flat screen tv's in the bedrooms give that hotel feel as do the super comfy beds. If you like to get in the kitchen this unit is equipped with every type of dish and utensil you can imagine and the washer and dryer are both basically brand new. The views of south beach could not be beaten anywhere else, it's so easy to lose an hour simply watching the world go by from either balcony. We had our 16 month old son with us and although both ensuites are brilliant showers and no tub - there is a kids bath which is simple to fill with the handheld shower and works great. It is a short stroll to south pointe park with all the kids play areas too - we spent many an afternoon wandering along the boardwalk next to the block and meeting the more friendly local residents of south beach. There are many fantastic restaurants within walking distance and publix is just a few blocks if you wish to eat at home. There is also a small well stocked convenience store as well as an ATM in the block.The parking spot assigned to this unit is right next to the door to the lift (it's the little things) and the valet and porters are all very friendly and helpful. We didn't make use of the floodlit tennis court but with a view over the marina to downtown if you like tennis it's a pretty idyllic court. The communal pool is a good size with plenty of beds and the gym is furnished with the full range of equipment on the 2nd floor with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the marina, if that doesn't get you in for a workout nothing will!

Everything south beach has to offer is within a 5min cab ride however having stayed at many hotels on the beach I preferred this experience for an extended stay - you really feel like a relaxed resident at this address.

I wish I could say something negative about our experience to give a complete review but honestly we had the perfect time preparing for our wedding in Miami. Michael the landlord is such a lovely guy, nothing is too much trouble, he is always on the other end of the phone and dropped everything just to come and help us work the tv properly! Although other units in the block are slightly cheaper, we have stayed in others and would never look anywhere else now! You won't be disappointed

this exclusive south of 5th location has within walking distance the finest restaurants, like joe's stone crab, Prime 112, Prime Italian, Fogo De Chao, De Rodriguez Cuba, Philippe Miami, and Smith and Wolensky, just a gourmet's delight all just a few steps away. The beautiful beaches and the walking path along the marina just outside your door is a delight to walk and watch the sunsets. That combined with the amazingly warm beach weather in the winter makes this a terrific vacation spot.
