Wonderful 3 week vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Maria's place for 3 weeks in March. It was one of my best vacations. The location is perfect for the beach, walking the trail and close to the stores. The condo was very nice and the view from the balcony was really great.

We would recommend her place.

Beautiful condo on the beach in a quiet yet sophisticated neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Nice location, beautifully furnished and well-kept condo and building - we've had a wonderful time:

LOCATION: Surfside is a really lovely and rather small suburb of Miami. This condo is located in the south of Surfside, near a beachfront park. The beach is clean and never crowded, even if you walk towards town center. There are dunes with a walk path on the beach. The town center with a Publix, some shops and restaurants is in walking distance. It's rather upmarket and next to famous Bal Harbour and the exclusive Bal Harbour shops. If you're looking for more "city life", you might go to Sunny Isles Beach - a larger suburbian city with more restaurants and shops - or the famous Aventura Mall in only 10 minutes by car. Vibrant Miami downtown and lively yet crowded South beach are 20 minutes by car, so everything is really close. (If you have no car or don't want to drive, buses go all the time, too.)

CONDO: Beautiful and well-kept kind of says it all. A comfortable bed, plenty of closet space (walk-in), a fully equipped kitchen with all you need, washer and dryer, two comfortable sofas in the living room and a balcony (accessible from both living room and bedroom) with views of both the ocean and the city. Perfect for breakfast outside. The condo was really clean and in good shape. The WiFi worked perfectly fine.

BUILDING: Bright and clean. The pool deck was clean and faced the dunes. As usual in Miami's northern beach suburbs, there's shade in the afternoon as the soon moves behind the high buildings. On a cooler day, you might want to move to the beach then, which is just a few steps away. The pool was clean but rather cool, cooler than the ocean. (The pool cleaning service explained it was unheated, which is quite odd in Miami - so that's the only thing one might wish to change.) The Jacuzzi was redone during our stay, so we did not use it. Self-parking behind the building was comfortable - literally just three steps to the back door.

CONTACT: Maria gave excellent instructions for arrival, everything was right in place. Some questions during our stay (mainly regarding the Jaccuzi) were answered very quickly and friendly. Thank you for a lovely stay in Surfside!

We would definitely rent this condo again and will ask for it the next time we're coming to Surfside.

Good Feelings

  • 5 of 5


wir waren Ende April für 10 Tage in Marias Wohnung und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung hat alles was man benötigt. Die Küche ist komplett eingerichtet und es gibt auch eine Waschmaschine und einen Trockner. Der Balkon mit einer wunderbaren Sicht einerseits auf das Meer und andererseits auf die Stadt ist vom Wohnraum und auch vom Schlafzimmer aus zu betreten, was sehr angenehm ist. Das Bett ist in Ordnung, wir haben sehr gut geschlafen. Zwei Sofas im Wohnbereich (vielleicht nur bedingt für Kinder zum Schlafen geeignet) sind zum gemütlichen sitzen vorhanden. Bad, Dusche und WC sind ok - es hat alles funktioniert.

In der Wohnung waren auch Strandutensilien - Schirm und Stühle, was am Meer sehr angenehm ist. Außerdem gehört noch ein Auto Stellplatz zur Wohnung.

Die Lage des Hauses ist natürlich hervorragend. Aus der Wohnung in den Fahrstuhl, dann 200m laufen und man steht vorm Ozean.

Auch Surfside als Stadtteil ist sehr angenehm. Die Häuser sind noch nicht so hoch, es gibt Straßenzüge mit kleinen Läden (auch Publix) und Restaurants in der Nähe. Und wer nach Downtown möchte ist mit dem Auto, sowie mit dem Bus schnell dort.

Der Kontakt mit Maria war sehr angenehm. Sie hat alle Anfragen schnell und sehr freundlich beantwortet und eine kleine Reparatur am WC wurde sofort veranlaßt. Wir hatten immer ein gutes Gefühl und möchten uns hiermit noch einmal bei Maria und Ihrem Mann bedanken.

Ein Dank auch an den Mann vom Empfang. Dieser war sehr freundlich und hat sich um alles relevante gekümmert.

Wir würden gerne wieder kommen!


we were at the end of April for 10 days in Maria's flat and have felt very well. One has needed the flat everything what. The kitchen is completely furnished and there is also a washing machine and a dryer. The balcony with a miraculous view on the one hand on the sea and, on the other hand, on the town is to be entered by the living space and also from the bedroom what is very pleasant. The bed is in order, we have slept very well. Two sofas in the living area (maybe only causes for children for sleeping suitably) are to the comfortable one sit available. Bath, shower and WC are OK - everything has functioned.

In the flat were also beach utensils - screen and chairs what is very pleasant by the sea. Moreover, one more car parking lot belongs to the flat.

The situation of the house is excellent of course. From the flat in the lift, then 200 m run and one stands before the ocean...

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the month of March and had a wonderful time. Condo was very comfortable, clean and well supplied. Dishes, cookware and utensils all of good quality. In house washer and dryer were definitely an added convenience. Location was great, only a few steps to the beach and beautiful views from the balcony of the ocean, bay and Miami skyline also amazing sunrises and sunsets. Building was quiet and well maintained. Maria could easily be reached if needed. I would of liked a larger coffee pot and TV which were only minor inconveniences.

Would definitely return

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, well lit and friendly building. The security guard is there during the day and is diligent about his job. There is parking on site. The elevator was very timely.

The building is on the ocean side and Maria's apartment has an unhindered side view of the ocean. It was great to wake up to the sunrise.

The apartment was clean and very well stocked with condiments, paper goods, towels, beach chairs (old but work), laundry needs (washer dryer is in the apartment).

The bed was very comfortable and more than enough pillows and blankets were provided. If i were to be picky, I would say the room could use a coat of paint as there are some water marks(?) on the wall near the head of the bed. The kitchen was well stocked with paper towels, napkins, coffee filters, salt, pepper etc. The dishes, cups and glasses were not flimsy and the there was plenty of flatware. Some of the pans need to be replaced.

The bathroom was clean. The shower had more than enough hot water and pressure. It may be time to replace the shower head just because of cosmetic reasons. The towels were very thick (that was nice). Enjoyed the double sinks.

The living room was comfortable. There are sliding glass doors to the patio off the living room and bedroom. Nice table and chairs are on the patio. There is a small tv in the living room and a large one in the bedroom. The wifi connection was steady but not strong. We were not able to stream anything on the computer.

Maria was wonderful to work with. She responded to my text msgs very quickly and always with useful information. Her instructions to enter the building etc were very easy to follow.

I would not hesitate to rent this unit again.
