About Elsy

I am a retired teacher who loves the beach. I enjoy sharing my condo with people who enjoy nature and seek a paradise island to relax and enjoy precious moments at the beach.

Elsy purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Elsy chose Key Biscayne

It was my dream to retire near the beach. I thank God for helping me make my dream come true. I love to meet people who enjoy nature as much as I do and to provide a nice unforgetable vacation for them.

What makes this apartment unique

Steps from the beach, a cute balcony that overlooks the swimming pool and palm trees. It is cute, cozy, and I love it!!! The supermarket and many restaurants are at walking distance. It is ideal to ride a bike, swim, walk, run, and just relax in the balcony or at the pool deck. The private beach has confortable chairs to relax. You will fall in love with this little paradise.!!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 day stay at Elsy's apartment. It was clean, cozy and the balcony was a plus.

This apartment is perfect for 2 people. There are beach towels, chairs and other essentials for the beach across the street. We highly recommend this apartment in Key Biscayne.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to accomodate you. The beach across the street, the supermarket a block away and all the restaurants and pharmacy at walking distance makes it easy to reach all your needs in an easy manner. The free transportation within the island and the 90 bikes spread around the island for you to use for a few cents, makes your vacation a real pleasure. See you soon!

Outstanding quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We found it great and met our needs. We came for a week of easy relaxation and found this to be just the spot. The location is great. A pretty quiet street, but within easy walking distance of the beach, and the main street restaurants. The beach is about a 2 minute pleasant walk and you can have either shade or sun. The beach is very nice and behind a small seawall are palm trees, grass, and Adirondack chairs.

Esly's place has all you need, and she is very accommodating and willing to give help and offer advice. She makes you feel at home and is more than willing to do whatever it takes to make for a good vacation. Definitely a return spot.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for choosing my apt. I also enjoyed having you, a pleasant, easy going couple. I am glad you found everything you were looking for. It is great when there is good communication and you feel free to ask any questions. My main concern is that my guests enjoy their stay and want to come back. It was,nice having you too.

Cute little apt in nice neighborhood close to the beach.

Owner's Response: Yes, the apt is next to the beach and very clean. It is perfect for a couple, no children, no pets. I am glad you found it great. Your complaint about your last year's rental was that it was too far from the beach, too dark and no balcony. I am glad this year you were able to enjoy being so close to the beach from my apt, the beautiful balcony where you could seat to have breakfast and see the swimming pool from there and all the light that comes from the sliding doors where you can enjoy the palms and garden.

Key Biscayne Condo Rental

  • 5 of 5

Elsy’s condo was a wonderful place to stay for our winter vacation. We stayed in the condo for a week in late December to early January. The whole experience was great! Elsy was very accommodating and pleasant to work with. She helped us a lot with the rental process and made sure we had everything we needed when we arrived at the condo.

The condo itself is a very clean, well-stocked place. It is not overly luxurious, but perfect for someone on vacation. It is very spacious for two people and has everything you need for being on vacation. The condo is located in a nice, well-kept neighborhood on a quiet street. Neighbors and residents are quiet and keep to themselves. There is a private beach with bathroom and shower access that is half a block from the condo. This was a great feature, not have to drive or go far to get to the beach. The condo is also located centrally in Key Biscayne, so everywhere we went, we could walk. We only had to walk about 2 blocks to get to the main shopping center that included a grocery store, CVS, restaurants, etc. Definitely a great location to have if you don’t have a car. If you get tired of the island life, Miami is only about a 20 minute drive across the causeway, which was a huge plus for us. We loved being able to get out of the city, but we were close enough to go everyday.

If we ever return to Key Biscayne (which is a very high possibility!) I would happily rent from Elsy again. It was a great experience and she is wonderful to work with.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We are a mid 40s couple, had a wonderful time at Key Biscayne staying at Elsy's condo from April 25 till May 02. The condo is perfect for a couple and it had all we needed: nice kitchen, stable WiFi, laundry room on the first floor of the building. Very easy and convenient access to the private beach is what we really liked, no need to cross the busy Crandon Blvd. It takes 2 minutes to walk from the condo building to the Beach Park, then use the key to enter the Park and 3 minutes later we were at the beach. The Beach Park is very nice too, it has toilets and showers to wash off the sand on the way back. It was a very good week and we hope to be back some day.
