Good location, but you get what you pay for.

  • 2 of 5

The location was good. Walking distance to shopping, food and the beach. It is directly above the bars so it is loud all.night.long.

The unit itself was ok. Lots of light bulbs out, and the refrigerator was broken. We arrived on Thursday and were told it would be fixed on Friday. It never got fixed. The reason we used a rental like this was to save money on food because South Beach is so expensive. We didn't budget for this so it was very irritating. We were told we would get a refund but now, 3 weeks later I haven't seen anything.

Overall an ok property, but the owner doesn't seem to take it seriously.

Excellent location!

  • 3 of 5

The location for South Beach couldn't be better. The beach is right across the street and restaurants everywhere. The unit needs a good deep clean, some new bed sheets and a mattress protector. I woke up with the sheets half way off and laying on the mattress. I didn't like that. The fridge was broke along with a fouton leg. We enjoyed the roof top pool. We also did not find it loud like a previous review had stated. Again location was great.

not to good

  • 3 of 5

Overall the location was wonderful, However the fridge was broken which caused my cake for my anniversary to melt, also our drinks were very hot. the dishes although we brought out own very dirty with lipstick around the rim. I had to pay way to much for parking. Room could have been a little more cleaner. I purchased my own sheets to go on the bed because the condo sheets weren't clean.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately my fridge broke and I am in the process of replacing it. It takes a little time because it is not a standardized fridge, but one that has to be a little smaller. Sincerely - Cary Sontag

Not what we expected!

  • 1 of 5

Upon arriving at our reserved unit, check-in when smoothly but as we entered the unit, the refrigerator was unplugged and doors standing open. We plugged it in and, after several hours, discovered it was not working. Probably why the doors were opened. We informed the front desk of the issue and that we did not have any wash cloths and they said okay. The next day we were out and upon our return, found nothing had been done about the refrigerator or wash cloths. Tried to call the front desk, only to find that the phone in the room was also not working. I went to the front desk and mentioned to them again about the refrigerator, wash cloths and added that the phone did not work. They said they would take care of it. Went out to enjoy Miami the next day and returning, found that again, nothing happened. I had to go to the lobby and actually wait for them to get me wash cloths. The room itself, was dated and left a feeling of a second rate 'motel'. The people at the front desk were very nice but never followed through other than getting us ice when we asked for it so that we could try to keep the little bit of food that we bought, cold. I sent a text to the unit owner about my issues and did not receive a reply from her until the last night of our stay at 9:22 p.m. Her reply was "My fridge went out a few days ago. Sorry about that." Not 'I will take care of it', 'I will apply a refund' or any customer friendly comments. I would strongly recommend staying away from this rental since there was such a lack of concern about customer satisfaction.
