"The apartment is VERY well-located. It was quite small for a family and it's dated, although almost everything was functioning properly.
It has a good kitchen with plenty of utensils.
The pool area was very nice. The ocean was right next to the pool. You can see the ocean from every window!
The beach chairs and umbrellas were also a big bonus.
The price was also very good, especially for the great oceanfront location on Ocean Dr.
The landlord always responds very quickly and was very nice!
The apartment had a lot of towels and bedlinnens, which was great. The availability of washing machines and dryers was also very convenient.
AC is very loud, but does work very well.
As was already known to us, there is no parking available, and south beach parking is very expensive and difficult. We used the garage on 7 and Collins which was the cheapest nearby. If you just go for the beach you won't need a car, but if you want to explore Miami, outlet malls and maybe the Keys a car is a must.
Everytime we cooked, the smoke alarm would go off, because you could only open one window and the hood(?) was out of order.
There also were a lot of bugs that somehow came in at night, once even a massive roach, eventhough we kept everything clean and we threw out the trash multiple times a day.
The bathroom has a very loud ventilator which turns on automatically with the light. It still gets vert humid in there after a shower.
All and all it is a very good deal and we really enjoyed our stay. We would recommend staying here, keeping in mind the downsides (especially parking and the fact that it's dated). You just can't beat the location and price!"
