About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Fully renovated 1 bedroom/ 1 bathroom condo with 2 extra long full size beds to sleep four comfortably. Brand new Art Deco Style furniture throughout. Full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, etc, and all day to day dishes. A washing machine/dryer is on premises and maid service is also available. Last, but not least, there are beach chairs and umbrellas in the main closet for your use and baby items are provided upon request. We tried to think of everything you might possibly need!

Condo is on the ground floor and accessed with a keypad code.

The condo is located in SOFI, or South of 5th Street. This area is only five blocks long and eight blocks wide, but is considered the nicest area in all of Miami Beach. The condo is two blocks to the Beach, Monty's Marina, Shopping, and South Pointe Park. Everything is within walking distance from the home, including Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road and Espanola Way. The best restaurants in Miami Beach are in SOFI, including Joe's Stone Crab (has a takeaway side too that's just as good), Prime 112, Prime Italian, Prime Fish, Milo's, Red's Steakhouse, La Piaggia, Tongue and Cheek, Smith and Wollensky's, Nikki Beach, Texas De Brazil, La Locanda, Kone Sushi, Big Pink, Gold and Pepper, Monty's, Primo Pizza, and Fratelli la bufala, Pura Vida (best smoothies), Cafe Mistral (best French toast), La Glouttanaire (best brunch), and My Ceviche (best tuna tacos and guacamole) just to name a few. Also in the neighborhood is a Starbucks, an Italian ice cream parlor, fresh juice bar, French bakery, fishing charters, tennis courts, scooter rentals, boat rentals, jet ski rentals, paddle board rentals, and a dive shop. Publix grocery store is just four blocks away and has a shopping center attached. We have nice little bars just steps away, too. The Room is a small local place that has tons of beers on tap. Radio Bar is a cool lounge with great DJ's. The Flat is a piano bar where you might find the Gypsy Kings playing impromptu on a Friday night. And Story is our only night club South of Fifth, 2nd only to LIV!

For those who enjoy more cultural activities, the award winning New World Symphony (which has Wall Casts on Saturdays and Movies on Wednesdays is located just North of Lincoln Road. The Performing Arts Center is downtown, just across the bridge (two miles), and The Filmore (Lincoln Road), has shows almost every weekend. There are several museums on the beach, too, such as the famous Bass Museum. The Children's Museum and Jungle Island are just minutes away on the bridge. Within a ten minute drive is the Design District and Wynwood area, which houses some of the best art galleries in Miami, modern furniture stores, and trendy cafes and restaurants.

If you really want to experience South Florida, you must go swimming with the dolphins at the Miami Seaquarium (20 minutes away) or take a short 45 minute drive to the Everglades where you can see alligators in their natural habitat or take an air boat ride. The Florida Keys are only an hour away and make a beautiful day trip for kayaking the mangroves or snorkeling sunken ships.

No matter what you choose to the beach, shop, water sports, or stroll through South Pointe Park and watch the cruise ships leave port, it is all within walking distance from our condo!

We have guest passes for street parking if needed for $5 per day. (Please let me know prior to your trip if you need them, so we can purchase) If you prefer not to walk or ride bikes (DECO BIKE rental stations on every corner for drop offs and pick ups, including right in front of our condo), there is the South Beach Loop Bus, which costs 25 cents, right across the street. The 'Airport Flyer' costs $2.65 and drops you at Washington Avenue (5th Street) from the airport and also picks you up there. Transportation is not an issue here at all, so don't feel like you need a car.

About Kelly Corso

We've lived in the South of Fifth area for seventeen years now and absolutely love it. I am a real estate broker and we have two sons, 10 months and 3 years. We live only two blocks from the condo that we purchased for friends and family to stay. This area is THE BEST in all of Miami Beach and we wouldn't let our family stay anywhere else!

Nicely equipped with great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our children, made a short trip to South Beach and stayed at this location for 4 nights. We had a wonderful experience. Kelly was incredibly helpful and really went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The apartment is lovely. The kitchen is adequately equipped for cooking in. The beds are soft and comfy. The renovations are clean and modern. The only issue we had was with the on site laundry, which was unfortunately during the night. Overall, an excellent experience with a great renter. We will stay again if we find ourselves in South Beach again! Thanks, Kelly!

Clean, cute, and complete!

  • 5 of 5

Kelly was great with communicating all necessary information. She was just a text away if I had any questions. There was a water leak in the kitchen from an upstairs neighbor's water hose and Kelly's husband was there within the hour with some towels to soak it up. No problems after that!

We rented a car and they were able to provide us with an electronic guest parking pass for our stay. Parking was just right behind the building. There is a backdoor in the bedroom that leads right back there.

The front door has keyless entry access, so there is no need to coordinate meeting times and no need to fuss with keeping track of a key! Super easy to use. The kitchen has everything you might need. We didn't do any cooking, but used some utensils and cups. The living area has a couch and two chairs. TV only has basic channels, but who needs more when the beach is 5 minutes away? There is a storage closet with beach chairs, an umbrella, and tote bags. Beach towels were in the bedroom closet.

The bedroom has two beds. Very comfy and clean. The bed was on the more soft plush side if you have a sensitive back. There is a TV in the bedroom as well. Also an ironing board and iron. And lots of hangers and shelves.

The bathroom was also clean. I didn't ever get that icky feeling I've gotten before in some places. I even felt comfortable walking around barefoot. Shampoo/conditioner, extra towels, soap, and a hair dryer are provided.

It literally was just a 5 minute walk to the beach. And about a 15-20 minute walk to get down to restaurants beyond 12th street. We Lyft'ed once to 15th street, but there was a lot of construction going on. So if you're not in a rush, you can walk right down Collins or Ocean and see the sights and shop the shops along the way. It's also really close to the Causeway that gets you back to the mainland.

The place was just the right size for 2 of us. I think it would feel a little cramped with 4 adults. Manageable, but cramped. Overall, this place has everything you could ask for!

Great location, two blocks to a really nice part of the beach. Kelly was extremely responsive and helpful. Easy to park if you rent a car, easy to bike if you don't. Would highly recommend staying here.
