I stayed here with my family - husband, son, sister and niece. It is the second year in a row we have stayed here and we LOVE it. My parents lives in the Yacht Club just down the road, so it is very convenient walk. Also directly across the street from a park with a great playground for kids and the beach. Next door to big pink!!! And just a short walk to all of the "touristy" attractions on ocean drive and Collins. Highly recommend!
I've stayed at many condos on Ocean Drive and this was absolutely the best! Condo was very clean and quiet. Great view of the ocean and proximity to the park, beach and Big Pink restaurant!
The location and the apartment are exceptional. It's just two blocks away from the great night life and the myriad of restaurant you can find within a five minutes walking distance and yet it is secluded enough to provide the privacy and tranquility we were looking for. We have been taking vacations in So-Be for years as a family and tried several locations. This by far was our best experience. Cynia and Andy were very easy to deal with and the management company that handles the rental on their behalf was very attentive and responsive to our needs. The view from the balcony out of the living room it's priceless, and by itself worth the price of admission. The apartment is exactly as depicted in the pictures you can see in the listing. We have two young kids ages 7 and 12 and we highly recommend this place for a family vacation. The pool, the beach and the park just in the front of the building helped made this a wonderful experience. We are looking forward to come back next year!
The apartment was as described and depicted in the photographs. Everything was clean, from the bathrooms and kitchen to the linens and towels. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. There are beach chairs, towels, beach umbrellas and a washer dryer! We enjoyed eating breakfast and lunch in the apartment and Cynia and Andy's recommendations for restaurants for dinner were spot on. We also loved sitting on the spacious balcony and spending late afternoons relaxing by the pool.
The apartment is situated south of Fifth (SoFi) which for us was perfect since it is out of the craziness yet close enough, should one want to partake! We walked everywhere, however there is a local bus for a quarter! which takes you right up to Lincoln Road. Rental bikes are right out front, we didn't do this though.
I would definitely return to this apartment, Cynia and Andy were very quick to respond to my questions and very easy to deal with.
This condo unit is right where you want to be. You are above the tree line of the park across the street that separates you from the ocean and the beach, so you see the park, the beach, direct ocean views in front, and can people watch on Ocean Drive. Not too noisy for being on a busy street, which I think the park helps with. Convenient to lots of great restaurants, my favorite was CJs Seafood for grouper sandwiches and oysters (Ocean Drive & 6th). You get a secure parking spot in the garage where parking is at a premium. Easy walk through the park to get to the beach. Bathrooms and closets are fantastic. Comfortably sleeps 4-5, but I wouldn't try more than that. The kitchen is great for breakfast and lunch to save money. Washer & dryer are good, and they provided plenty of towels, but the beach chairs and umbrellas were pretty worn out, so I ended up buying a new beach chair. We went on a boat tour, kayaking and visited with friends and relatives. A perfect vacation, and I don't give 5 stars easily! I will definitely try to book here again when we get a chance to come back.
The location in Miami Beach is perfect. It has one parking space. The owner was nice and quick in answering our questions.
The apartment was not ready when we arrived shortly after 4 p.m. directly from Europe after a flight of 11 hours and with a time difference of 6 hours. The owner and the real estate lady were informed one week before arrival about all details (flight number, arriving time at MIA etc.) and we texted the real estate lady when we left MIA but nobody had the courtesy to check if the apartment was ready and nobody was there when we arrived with the taxi. Imagine our feeling: We are seniors, we had a very long day and it was 10 p.m. for us and we stand with our entire luggage on the street waiting for the real estate lady when the cleaner arrived. We could deposit the luggage in the apartment and had to leave to hang around until the apartment was ready after more than 3 hours.
The apartment was very dirty:
We found a towel and a cap under the bed in the master bedroom
We found tuft of hairs and a cover of a razor in the shower
We could hardly open the door from the living room to the terrace. The next day we found out why: the inner guidance of the sliding doors was full of dirt and even water
Taking a shower the next morning we found (apart of the hairs and the razor cover) the bath towels stained. I washed them and when I opened the dryer I found a lot of bath towels. They were full of spots and with a bad smell (no wonder because the washing machine was set on cycle cold/cold).
All the floors were awful dirty, we never walked barefoot.
The terrace furniture including the cushions were terrible filthy too, no way to sit outside.
The bed sheet of the master bedroom had a hole and the curtains were unhinged at some positions. It is nothingness but after all we paid a fortune per night.
The owner was informed and - apart from apologies - offered to stay an additional night free of charge (we had of course already other bookings) or a free night at an eventual next stay. That topped it all off! We have not asked for anything but if we would have expected something it would have been a refund of the cleaning fee (which is much less than an additional night). So a bad crisis management in addition.
Coming regular to Miami Beach we will choose one of the luxury hotels next time. For that money we will get a very good room which is nice and clean and ready on arrival and we strongly recommend you to do the same.
