Overview

About the property

In The Heart Of South Beach, This Mid-century Modern Home Has It All!

Guests will have access to all the amenities of the house. The professional kitchen contains six gas burners, griddle, 2 ovens, 1 warming drawer, dishwasher, and huge stainless steel fridge. Your guest can sit at the 10 ft island while you prepare your feast.

There is a large heated swimming pool. Other outdoor amenities include the outdoor gas grill, outdoor shower, herb garden, and pool inflatables.

There are 5 flat screen televisions throughout the house. All televisions provide cable. The Media area contains a 58 inch HDTV with cable and HBO and surround sound throughout the room.

The bar contains two wine coolers, filtered water, and is a perfect spot to relax while watching your friends and family spend time in the pool.

The house has excellent wifi throughout. Enjoy wifi poolside or while watching TV in the media room.

Please note that on March 1, 2016, renovations began at the property adjacent to my property. Nicely, my property has hurricane impact windows that significantly reduce noise. I have discounted the nightly rate to account for the negative impact that any noise created during normal working hours may create. Please contact me if you have questions.

I can be easily reached throughout the day. I provide my email and cell phone for any questions. I will interact with my guests as often or as little as desired. If you are looking for recommendations throughout South Beach, give me a call. If you are looking for a private secluded weekend away, I'll put the keys in a lockbox and give my guests the privacy they desire.

Little gem tucked in middle of South Beach

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this wonderful property!! The house has everything one would ever imagine for a vacation rental - just like living at home, but in beautiful and sunny Miami. The pictures and previous reviews are "spot on" and we could not have been happier. My wife and I have been going to South Beach for about 10 years and usually stay in hotels on the beach, but decided to try this as we were bringing teenage kids for Spring Break. The neighborhood is very quiet and inviting - easy walks to everything you would need. The beach is about 15 minute walk straight across 13th St. to Lummus Park, Lincoln Road about 10 minutes, as well as many stores and restaurants close by. The real star however is the house! The pool and patio is amazing and very peaceful - much contrasted to the hotel pool scene on Collins Ave. The house is quite open and relaxing with multiple areas for all to hang out and get out of the sun periodically. Not that it's necessary on vacation, but the house has cable TV's in every room and has excellent WiFi for streaming Netflix, etc. Lastly, Ken was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process from booking to checkout - very attentive, replies promptly, and immediately reachable via text or phone if needed. Thanks for a great experience and it was a pleasure meeting you upon our departure.

Great house exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this lovely house in early February 2017.

The house is very spacious and had everything we needed to make our stay very comfortable and enjoyable.

The house is in a residential area quiet enough to enjoy peaceful days but close enough to walk or take a short taxi ride to the 'hustle and bustle'.

The construction work was still ongoing at the next door property but it never troubled us at all - I guess all the heavy and noisy work had already been completed and it was quiet enough for us to enjoy our breakfast by the pool every morning and to use the pool in the afternoon.

Although we didn't meet the owner, Ken Barrington, he was in constant touch before, during and after our stay and we felt very confident that he would be there in a very short time if needed.

Ken also gave us some great advice for things to do and places to go, as well as great restaurant recommendations, 2 of which were very busy and we wouldn't have got a table without his advised advance reservation.

If we were lucky enough to return to Miami Beach we would love to stay in this house again.

Magnifique maison, un petit paradis !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué la maison de Ken pour nos vacances de Noel. Elle est magnifique, plus belle encore que sur les photos. Au calme, et pourtant tout près des quartiers les plus animés (à quelques minutes à pied), proche de toutes les commodités (dont un whole food) elle est idéalement située, c'est un véritable petit paradis, très bien équipé et décoré avec goût. Ici tout est simple et beau, mais aussi très confortable. La piscine est splendide, à température parfaite, ensoleillée. Le barbecue est magnifique, comme tous les équipements, à la fois très fonctionnels et ultra-modernes (lits fantastiques, douche massante, etc). Il faut également souligner l'emplacement de parking, un véritable atout à Miami où se garer est très difficile. Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve. Ken est un hôte attentionné, disponible, vraiment très sympathique. Nous avons séjourné plusieurs fois à Miami mais cette maison est notre favorite et nous espérons avoir l'occasion de la louer à nouveau. Merci Ken !

Amazing South Beach House - Look no more!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house from Feb. 16-23, 2016. Ken Barrington (owner) was very responsive to any questions before, during and after the rental. We had a few questions regarding how some things worked in the house. Ken stopped over to lend some assistance. He is a great guy and we would definitely rent from him again. The previous reviews, photos, descriptions were very accurate.

The house is very spacious with many seating areas inside and out. The wet bar with a great wine refrigerator, big ice maker and beverage refrigerator with another inside seating area with screened in doors to the patio was awesome. We played cards a few afternoons in here while still enjoying the patio area. The pool was the highlight of the stay for the two couples that stayed. There were (4) outdoor chaise lounges and two pool floats with the property. The kitchen is large, modern with all the high quality cookware and utensils. A large stainless steel refrigerator, 6 burner stove and double oven. The kitchen island is very large with gorgeous granite counter tops. There are (4) high quality counter stools to eat at the island if you wish. There is another beautiful outdoor patio table just outside the screened kitchen doors. A front loading washer and dryer are available if you need to wash anything. The bathrooms are very modern, high quality and very clean. The whole house was very clean. The (2) queen beds were good (firmer) but a gel infused memory foam topper would greatly improve the beds. As noted in some previous reviews, there is a house renovation next door. We were initially concerned about it but it did not distract from the many hours we spent at the pool. The house has hurricane rated windows and doors to reduce inside noise. The construction is limited to M-F (8-4pm) and is a small crew of workers (3-4) It is walking distance to Lincoln Road Mall, Espana Way and the Art Deco District. You really don't need a car unless you deem it necessary. It is about 15 minutes ($35 cab) to the airport. There is also a great park about a block away where you can rent the Citi bicycles to explore more of South Beach.

As stated previously, Ken Barrington is a great owner and will make your trip comfortable.

We will be back.

Perfect house, location, and attentiveness

  • 5 of 5

I wholeheartedly agree with the other 5 star reviewers. The location is great - we walked to the beach, Lincoln Drive as well as the art fairs during Art Basel. The furnishings are very comfortable and stylish and we enjoyed the outdoor areas as well. The owner is very well organized and responsive. We loved our accommodations!
