First things first - when they say "centrally located," they mean it! The apartment is right in the heart of Miami Beach, and the location could not be better. The rate was great value for the location as it is right near the beach, restaurants, shops, etc.
The apartment itself was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Since there is a kitchen, you can save some money by buying groceries and preparing your own meals if you are going to have a somewhat extended stay since everything nearby is so pricey.
We also got a lot of use out of the rooftop pool. We were pleasantly surprised that it was not more crowded. The 6th floor pool offers amazing views and is a nice change of pace from the crowds of the beach and the streets.
Rob and Val were also very responsive. The only issue we had was that our room did not have a hot plate initially as advertised. When we contacted Rob and Val, we had two hot plates in our room within an hour.
The only "complaint" I would have would be the noise. We were woken up a few different times by various things going on outside. That being said, when you are renting a place in the heart of South Beach, you know what you are getting yourself into and noise is part of the experience.
Everything was great!!!
Great Modern Apartment in ideal location
Apartment was clean, beautiful and modern. Huge refrigerator and nice shower. The bed was so comfortable, able to sleep well. Location was ideal -- few steps from beach, shops, restaurants and next to homemade cigar shop. Will definitely come again!
Thank you Rubi! We look forward to seeing again soon. Warmest Regards, Val
Great Apartment, Great Location!!
Apartment: The apartment is clean and modern. Kitchen has a small hot plate..good enough for making tea or boiling water...not too much cooking.
Bedroom is comfortable for a couple...there is room in the living room - but I am not sure if sofa is convertible(ask Rob-Val and they will reply quick).
Bathroom is clean and well equipped.Now - the bathroom has hazy glass doors. Again - for a couple it might be ok - but if you are trying more people then you need to be careful.
Location: This apartment is part of Congress Hotel on Ocean drive...in the heart of South Beach. DONT rent a car!! There is no parking and it will add unnecessary hassle to your trip. For transportation you can book a shuttle from the airport, taxi or Uber. You can also get Miami-Dade easy card or Easy ticket...google it.You can buy the card from Le Ann pharmacy a couple of blocks down. Its a prepaid card you can use on buses, metros etc. Bus#120 goes from 9th ave& Washington to downtown. You can also use cars2go...again...google it. Basically its a car sharing service. They have White and Blue colored smart cars all over the city...you can rent for per hour basis and be done with it. NOTE: they need your drivers license # to run a check on you which could take 3-7 business days - so plan accordingly. They have designated paid parking spots so you dont have to worry - because parking anywhere in Ocean Drive is $20/night.
Tours: There are plenty tour companies around...hop-on..hop-off, boat rides just a few blocks away. I used HalfPrice tour company...and they are good. We also took a tour bus to Key West...bus leaves at 645am and comes back at 9pm. Dont drive to Key West and think of coming back the same day...its 4 hours away and you will be exhausted and wont enjoy it.
Thank Faraaz! It looks like you enjoyed yourself visiting the surrounding area. We appreciate your kind comments. Warmest Regards, Val
Rocky start, finished strong.
My wife and I arrived early, so I knew that we would have to wait to check in. Problem is, the previous tenant had not yet checked out at 11a. So we went to have breakfast, shopped a bit, returned at 2pm, still no check out. 3pm, 330, no check out. Apparently renters were a ways away and forget to check out. Not owners issue true, but not ours either. Long story short, we finally entered at 430. Only 30 minutes after advertised check in time, despite the issues. The rest of the stay was great. Perfect location, perfect size for a couple or single.
Clean and reflects what's in the photos, great location on Ocean Drive
The property was in a great central location on Ocean Drive; as a past Miami resident, I knew going in that this location was prime for being close to the beach and other main attractions. Parking was expensive and not entirely convenient; closest garages were a few blocks away and street parking is ridiculously costly for overnight stays. I think we probably spent $100-$150 to park our rental car for a 3-night stay. Beware of Miami Beach parking!!!
The unit was comfy and spacious with all the amenties you could need, including refrigerator, dishes and glasses and pots and pans (if you want to cook, only have a small cooktop on the counter), coffee pot, and plenty of towels. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable, although the rainfall shower was a bit uncomfortable and treacherous (slippery and a bit awkward to get into and out of). The rooftop pool was also cool, although small. There was a party happening up there one afternoon during our stay and it was fun; good live DJ, good drinks, and a nice vibe. Definitely very cool.
With that being said, the specific unit we stayed in was not the best in terms of noise. We were facing the Versace mansion on one side (literally 50 feet away across the street) and an alley on the other. There happened to be a huge party at the Versace mansion on Sunday night during our stay to celebrate Jeff Gordon's retirement, and it was horrible. There was a live DJ playing from 11 PM - 6 AM and there was absolutely no sound insulation in our room. We could hear every lyric and noise all night. Not a wink of sleep was had. Also, garbage trucks, delivery vans, and raucous party people on the street (because we were only one story up from the sidewalk) were out very early in the morning and definitely affected the ability to sleep in. If you're going to Miami to party and expect to be out most of the night, this is a great spot to stay. If you want to relax and sleep in (or well), this is NOT the spot for you.
Thank you Sarah! This unit is mostly quiet even if on rare occasions the Versace Mansion hosts a special event. We're very happy to have this beautiful landmark property as our neighbor on Ocean Drive. It is also the most photographed property in South Beach. We're glad you enjoyed your accommodation. Warmest Regards, Val
