3 floor walk up ( elevator Brocken first 4 days) and the mattress was completely worn out!
Swing and a miss sports fans!
Unfortunately the elevator was not working, but the walk up is only two levels to get to the 3rd floor from the Lobby....which mosts people use even when the Elevator is working.
The elevator is working now.
As for the Bed, we had not had any complaints but i went to the apartment this week and agree with the guest.
I purchased a new Memory Foam Mattress which will be delivered next Wednesday, February 21.
we will be back........... ;-)
This was our second stay in this building and our first in this flat. We were very pleased with everything. We chose the location (again) because it is basically "on the beach" (including ocean-view both from bed- and living-room) yet very close to shops and nightlife of Mami Beach while being a really quiet location.
Lee and his employees provided us with great local support, were very accessible and helpful so we were nicely taken care of.
We agree with the previous reviewers in terms of shape of the building and the pool area. It was in odd shape in 2012 already while we were told then that improvements are underway. But basically we found things to be worse this year i.e. the bike rack was removed and also some of the deck chairs etc. seem to have gone missing plus there is a dogy tool shed in the backyard now.
Obviously this is not Lee's fault. The owners of the building seem to fail to actually get things done around the building and unfortunately leave things getting worse.
The flat itself is fine though, and you can always overlook the pool area and go to the beach instead....
So location and location manager are highly recommendable and we really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back some time soon!
Thanks for the kind comments....And regarding the condition of the building, yes, it would be nice if the Condominium Association would make improvements, but i factor this into the price...and I think it should also be noted that the Unit Ioffer is only one of four in the building with a direct view to the ocean, rather than in to the walls or windows of the neighboring building
Perfect Location, Pleasant Stay
I stayed in this property recently for WMC and it was a great location for SoBe. We were within walking distance or a short taxi away from the major spots. The apartment building is older and appears to be under construction, but the unit we were in was fine and for the most part, well-kept and clean. It's a good place if you are staying with a few friends and don't want to spend too much money to stay in SoBe. Only feedback I would share is to potentially paint or replace the bathtub - it was clean, which was great but it may be just me as I'm pretty picky with how a bathroom looks. The bathtub looked like it was chipping away, but at least it was clean so that's all that matters!
Lee and his team were great to work with and always responsive! :-) I already recommended this property to another friend!
Walk out to beach
Great location is its best selling point.. walk out back gate of complex and you are basically on the beach. Apartment is basic, but adequate. My wife, stepdaughter and I resided there for six days. While there the refrigerator was not holding a cold enough temperature and Lee, the manager, was responsive and replaced it. The building is drab and in mediocre shape. Heated pool was nice. When looking for a place, I feel the advertisement online and email description from Lee were accurate. We also arrived very late Sunday night due to a flight delay out of Boston, and Lee's assistant met us at the apartment past midnight and was very accommodating.
I think that this guest made the most important point....Great location and great value relative to anything in South Beach at a similar price....And a rare apartment that offers a direct ocean view on Ocean Drive without the street noise.
This building is older and in need of renovation, but the apartment is clean, quiet and a short walk to many restaurants, shopping etc.
My family and I have just returned from a relaxing 2 weeks in Lee's apartment. The apartment is ideally located right on Ocean Drive and on the beach! It has a fantastic kids playground almost next door, along with a Starbucks so was able to get my Chai tea latte fix, even on Christmas Day (the Americans don't take days off!).
The exterior of the apartment needs some work and in fact, while we were there, work was being conducted which meant that there was scaffolding around the pool area, which was a bit unsightly and the smell of tar was overwhelming on a few days. It also made the pool area a bit dirty and loungers were in a bit of a state. That said, the pool was heated, which was gorgeous.
The elevator broke down a few times but never for more than 2 days at anytime. Not a problem as apartment on 2nd floor but we have 2 toddlers so made it a tad more work for us.
The apartment itself is very homely and Lee replaced the sofa bed and living room furniture the day we left so it now looks brighter and more roomy. The bathroom and kitchen are bit on the old and basic side. The kitchen could do with a few more plates and bowls and utensils . We had to ask for a pan as only one was provided and it was broken but Lee was very efficient and responsed to all our requests very promptly and provided us with replacements. In fact, Lee was extremely helpful and flexible and hade our first rental experience abroad an extremely positive one.
It was great to have washing drying facilities ($1.50 for wash and $1.50 for dry).
So to recap, fab location and apartment nice. The only recommendation would be to replace the pans and provide a few more plates, bowls and kitchen utensils. Also it would be useful to provide one more set of bed linen. We were there for 2 weeks with small kids and only had the set on the beds which meant that if we had any accidents, we would have to wash and dry immediately. Finally, the kitchen and bathroom could do with modernizing but this isn't a priority and imagine that most people staying wil spend little time cooking and in the apartment.
In addition to the upgrade of the Living Room Furniture, I also replaced the dishes, glasses, etc...and in general have done what I can to make this apartment a comfortable and affordable place to stay.
I have factored the exterior building work in to the prices, so that while it is true that completion of the outside work and future interior/corridor work will be a welcome change, the value as compared to anything in the area is here now.
I could get used to this
I needed a clean, comfortable, good-vibe place to work on a writing project with as much ocean access as possible. I wanted a kitchen to help keep down cost and to allow me to stay in my "writing cave" as much as I wanted. I needed to be able to afford this. My stay at 325 Ocean was a perfect combination of all of these. During the stormy days, I could sit in my living room and write while gazing at the waves. Between squalls I could walk on the beach. Then, during the sunny days, I could carry one of the comfy beach chairs out and sit on the beach. I could open the window and experience sunrise on the beach, the rustle of palms and sleepy waves all mine, while SoBe slept. Lee was accessible, flexible, respectful and down to earth.
Very nice to hear things like this every now and then...but note that the address is 335 Ocean Drive, not 325....Thank you.
335 Ocean Drive is located in one of the best and most exclusive neighborhoods of South Beach right on the quiet part of Ocean Drive...What the locals refer to as 'South of Fifth'...Clean, beautiful and a very short walk to the 'action,' gorgeous South Pointe Park and of course, the Beach. You can not stay on Ocean Drive and be closer to the Beach. Restaurants, Clubs, Shops...all right outside your doorstep or a short stroll...no need to drive to be someplace special...you are already there.
