About this listing
*Don't let the media hype about Zika scare you away. They LOVE to exaggerate. Those of us who live here use mosquito repellant and we're fine. I will provide some for you.
The apartment is in the best location in Miami Beach. This Art Deco 2nd floor walk-up is just a few steps from Lincoln Rd, 6 blocks from the beach and a 10 minute walk to Ocean Drive.
In the center of South Beach this 2nd floor walk-up is a chic, one-bedroom gem can comfortably sleep 5 guests.
Lincoln Rd., the best people-watching, pedestrian-only walkway with a ridiculous amount of shopping and outside dining is only a few feet away.
Only 6 blocks from the beach!
Just a few blocks away from the quaint Español way, a Spanish style pedestrian street with delicious restaurants & shops. If you like to watch Flamenco dancers while dining, Tapas & Tintos is the place for you.
Only a 15 minute walk to the famous Ocean Drive where you will see historic Art Deco architecture and all kinds of dining options. Cross the street and walk along the promenade to see beautiful people playing volley ball, working out, roller blading and more. And of course, the beach is a few feet away.
And I've thought of everything you might need to help you travel light.
I provide the following:
• Clean sheets
• Bath towels
• Large beach towels
• Beach umbrella and beach cooler
• 2 beach chairs (carry like a backpack)
• Hair dryer
You'll also have plenty of closet and drawer space for your belongings.
Parking in South Beach can be a nightmare. I encourage you not to bring a car because it can be hard to find a parking space and it can get expensive - up to $40 a day. However, if you need to have a vehicle, I can provide guest parking passes for $10 per day.
Everything you could want or need is within walking distance. However, you can also travel by:
FreeBee - a six-seat golf cart that will take you around South Beach for FREE. The drivers work for tips. These rides are limited to South Beach only. Download the app, set your location and they will pick you up. It's that simple.
Lyft - download the Lyft app and use my promo code JERRY834226 and get 5 free ride worth up to $10 each.
Uber - download the app on your smart phone and use my promo code jerrya37 and you'll get a free ride worth up to $20.
Although this apartment is in the heart of the action it is still a community oriented building with mutual respect for one another. As a common courtesy I would ask that you:
1. Keep a decent and respectful noise level (especially if returning late)
2. Please leave apartment in the same condition you found it.
3. Please let me know right away if something gets broken so that I can have it fixed before my next guests check in. (I won't be mad) :-)
Very easy going, funny and generous guy here. I moved to Miami Beach from Atlanta, GA a few years ago to get away from as much cold weather as possible. One of the awesome thing about living here is that everything I need is within walking distance. I'm crazy about Indian food, love all the happy hour options here on the beach, love people watching and spending time with people who make me laugh. I travel quite a bit with my work so often my apartment sits empty. When I travel the world for fun I'd rather stay with friends and do the local thing rather than go the tourist route. I feel I can get a better grasp of the country/city with a local as my tour guide.
