About the property

High above Alton Rd and the Miami Marina, So of 5th. Panoramic views.

Most desirable rental apartment in Yacht Club! Highest floor, higher ceilings, corner with 2 balconies, best 270 degree east, north and west unobstructed panoramic views and the sun doesn't beat in as it does on the south side. Totally renovated this year with designer kitchen and bathrooms, contemporary furniture. PLEASE BOOK THIS ON MY NEW LISTING:


Please inquire for rates and dates. Winter monthly rate after the renovation is $8,750/month. Holiday rates may be higher. Last minute bargains and dates may be available.

My wife and I are the new owners of this fabulous 2 bedroom, 1130sf condo in the Yacht Club at Portofino. We rented it in 2015, and reserved it again for March 2016, when unexpectedly the owner asked if we would like to buy it. We jumped at the chance. The unique benefits of the condo, besides its location, are that it is on a corner on the 31st floor, with 10 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows giving panoramic views from most places in the apartment, and beautifully new kitchen and bathrooms. There is 24’’x 24’’ top-end Italian marble flooring throughout the unit. You enjoy the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean and the sunset over Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline. You also overlook Star Island with its celebrities and mansions, and have an unobstructed view north of all of Miami Beach.

The Yacht Club is a luxury condominium at 1st Street and Alton Road, the foot of Miami Beach, on the bay and adjoining the Miami Beach Marina with all of its million dollar yachts. The location is in the prized South of Fifth neighborhood, near Joe's Stone Crabs and Smith & Wollensky. It is one block from lovely South Pointe Park that borders the cruise ship channel, at which you can picnic with wine, watch the sunset, and wave at the passengers on deck as they sail out. There is a bike and pedestrian path that goes right by the building, around the foot of the island, and then up all the way north along the beach. We enjoy a quiet and traffic congestion free neighborhood, just outside the hustle and bustle of the rest of South Beach. The beach and loads of wonderful restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. It is only a short way up Alton Street to the Lincoln Road Mall, with all of its restaurants and action.

Sleeping accommodations include two large bedroom suites, one with king size bed, one with two full beds, and an additional queen size fold-out sofa in the living room. The master has a walk in closet. When privacy isn't needed, the black out blinds covering the window wall separating the master bedroom from the living room can be opened to allow expansive views from each room.

There is a full size washer and dryer for your convenience.

Both bathrooms were just completely renovated, with top end vanities and stall showers with wall jets and 12’ rain shower heads, and beautiful Italian tile walls and flooring.

There is WIFI, Blu-ray, Smart TV, DVR, HBO, Cinemax, TMC, STARZ and Showtime. Also a printer/scanner/copier and internet phone service for free calling.

The Yacht Club has just completed a major renovation and has a beautiful new pool deck with tennis court on the sixth floor overlooking the marina and the bay. There is a full gym, also overlooking the marina and bay.

The apartment comes equipped with beach chairs, beach umbrella, coolers, and a cart to make getting to the beach a pleasure.

I guarantee you will love being here!

The best review I can give is that on completion of our rental I have booked it again for 2017. My wife and I are regular renters now and are fortunate to be able to commit to one month vacations. It can be a little scary to book something for such a long period just from a web site and you are understandably nervous until you see what you have booked in person. Fortunately this apartment is arguably better than it looks in the photographs. It is a stunning location in arguably the best, safest, and sophisticated part of Miami South Beach. Having visited Miami several times now we have got to know which areas are the best and this is arguably number one. More important though is the apartment itself which has recently undergone renovation and can certainly be called high end. The Yacht Club has a great atmosphere and is very friendly. You really feel that you are part of the Miami Beach lifestyle which coming from England is just such great fun to experience. Gerald the owner is obviously very proud of his apartment and so he should be. What was particularly impressive and comforting was when we had a minor issue with the apartment he responded immediately by email and arranged for Management to fix it. This was all done with no fuss the same day. To my wife and I that is a major factor as you need to know that if something did need attention you have that reassurance. My wife and I have a bit of a track record now when it comes to knowing the difference between a good and a bad rental and this one is excellent and we have no hesitation in recommending it.

Great location, views and more

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific unit with incredible views, a great location and amenities. It is in a much quieter area than other parts of Miami Beach yet there are lots of restaurants nearby, many high-end. The walkway alongside the building takes you by the marina and to South Pointe Park, making for lovely daytime and evening strolls. The unit was recently renovated, including the kitchen and bathrooms. It is very comfortable and well equipped with dinnerware and glasses and enough pots and pans to be able to cook in. It also has a large screen TV with a soundbar. My husband and I have been very happy there and look forward to returning.

Loved This Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 teens loved this apartment! The views from the balconies and every window were spectacular. The apartment is well-appointed and it is in a luxury building in the best neighborhood in Miami Beach (SoFi). We walked to the marina, South Point park, the boardwalk, beaches, restaurants, shopping, etc. The owner was very helpful and our stay was amazing.

The balconies make the 270 degrees views just exceptional. Everything and everybody here make you feel you are at home. Gerald the owner was really friendly and helpfull. We have finally find our Miami sweet home and will join Gerald next time to book it again in the future.

Lovely apartment with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are half way through our stay for the month of March. It is a lovely very comfortable corner apartment. Being on the 31st floor, and with mostly low rise buildings in the South of Fifth neighborhood, the views are spectacular. It is much less congested and noisy here than in the rest of South Beach. The apartment has balconies facing East with a great view of the ocean, and north with views of the marina and bay, and to downtown Miami. The living room has big corner windows. There is a window wall separating the bedroom and the living room, with a curtain for privacy, which when the curtain can be left open, allows for panoramic views from the bedroom and living room. The furnishings are very nice, and the apartment is equipped with everything you might need to be at home, much better quality than what we often find. There even are beach chairs and umbrellas. The closets are adequate. The bathrooms are basic, but adequate. The Yacht Club building is quite nice, and the hallways have recently been redone, making the place look fresh and new. People in the building are super friendly, the staff as well as the residents. The swimming pool wasn't available for our stay since it is being renovated, but the management has made some other arrangements available. The gym is fully equipped and has a gorgeous view of the bay. The owner has been very responsive to any needs. We would be happy to book the apartment again.
