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!

Perfect in every way!!!

  • 5 of 5

Kelly and Jon are truly interested in providing a stellar experience for their guests. The apartment is charming, super clean, everything provided for a pleasant stay, comfy beds, great shower. And the location is the best in South Beach. We stayed for 10 nights and it was so pleasant to be able to come “home” to a quiet, peaceful, calming environment after exploring Miami Beach and Miami for the day by foot, biking, trolley, bus and/ or LYFT. We were all over, Wynwood, Design District, Little Havana, Northshore bandshell, Sunset Harbor, Flagler St. jewelers, Russian baths. Plus the beach is just 2 blocks away and beautiful South Point Park is a great place for a picnic.

A grand vacation was had staying in Kelly and Jon’s condo !!!

And Kelly and Jon are the best with communication.

good location. would stay again.

  • 4 of 5

this is a nice little apartment in a good location. close walk to beach, restaurants, etc but not too crazy or loud at night. the unit was clean and we appreciated that it had everything we needed without being jammed with an excess of junk. the owner was easy to work with and was very helpful in providing local information as well as easy parking during our stay. there were only a couple things that someone might not like - it's ground level right on a busy sidewalk, so can't really open the blinds unless you're ok with people seeing in, and because the a/c unit is right in the middle of apartment, it's a little loud when in use. (neither of these things bothered us too much, but if that's something that would bother you, be aware.)

Beautiful apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two children and it was such a great place to be. Two blocks from the beach and the perfect distance from ocean drive. Kelly the host was so responsive with any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again if we came to Miami.
