Frost is a very kind and helpful person. His goal was to make our stay as good as possible. But the stay didn't happen due to an unfortunate plumbing issue which made the room temporarily unavailable. We got the refund without problems.
Frost and Kate were great hosts, very supportive and the room was located ideally (calm but right next to everything).
It was my first time with airbnb, but I already used a similar guesthouse-site in Europe where i aways had really good experiences. Unfortunately i can not say the same to the stay with Frost. Me and my friend stayed 5 nights at the house, looking forward to nice relaxing holiday in Miami Beach while being hosted in a friendly and welcomed place. At the first night we were welcomed by Frosts girlfriend Kate. She showed us around in the household. Everything seemed fine, until the following two incidents happened which heavily decreased the value of our holiday. 1. Frost was so kind to provide towels to us. As they were purely white, we even assured us by asking if they could be used outside. Unfortunately the gras, we were lying on, was really dirty and the towels got heavily muddy. Of course it was never our intention to make them dirty and we even asked the host where we could clean the towels by ourselves. He said he can not use such a towel again which is why we have to replace it or give him 50$ in cash. He did not even tried to wash it. Finally we bought a new one but he did not liked it. He still insisted on the money. We think we showed that we were willing to help him. 2. The second incident concerns the bikes which were provided by the host and which are stored in the corridor of the flat. We used them on the second day and put them back in the corridor as safe as possible. During the time we stayed at home, Frost was also at home and was not complaining about how the bikes were placed in the corridor. According to Frost one of the biked felt down and left a scratch on the floor due to wring storage. That's why he wanted another 50$ in cash. As we did our best to put the bikes back as careful as possible and they also stayed for two hours safe, we declined to pay the amount. We carefully thought about all this several times and came across that if you want to be a host who likes to welcome guests and take money for this service, you also should treat people like guests. We think it is totable understandable that if two young students who travel should not give cash to anyone in this unprofessional way. We used all facilities of Frost very carefully and never intended to damage anything at all. Still sometimes you can not be careful enough and accidents can happen. Frost was not very nice when he informed us about the issues. It was not like finding a solution together it was more that he "forced" us to give him the cash or otherwise we will get a bad review. His own words "there is no negotiation possible". Of course after these incidents we did not feel anymore so welcomed and comfortable around...
Overall, unfortunately, unpleasant experience. It started off nice. Prompt check in/out. Aileen seems nice, friendly. The biggest issue was the lack of respect to the property/ inability to follow "House Rules". Particularly to provided towel and a bicycle. A towel was HEAVILY soiled, beyond the point of restoration and needed replacement. A bicycle was returned and not stored properly (did not use the bike's kickstand, it's a common sense, come on), resulting in a fall, which caused a bent handle bar/basket (easily fixed, not a big deal) and, unfortunately, a deep scratch in the hard wood floor (during the renovation, it cost me $400 to do that area's floor). I offered a simple resolution in the form of a $100 reimbursement (or $50 for the scratch and a replaced towel) according to my "House Rules", which was declined. The towel was replaced with a cheap, low quality colorful towel, which I, unfortunately, couldn't accept due to its special requirement for washing - cold wash, with like colors, when ALL my other Airbnb laundry is white/solid colors, high quality and is washed together. My common sense would dictate a replacement of someone's damaged property by an item of an equal or greater quality. Apparently, not everyone can accept the responsibility for their actions in a mature manner. Aileen insisted on using the Airbnb $1,000,000 guarantee to cover the damages, which is still to be resolved. I had my doubts when I received Aileen's request, given the fact that there was no review about her first stay with Airbnb in 2013 and decided to roll the dice. It was a mistake. Will I host her again? Definitely not.
Frost and Kate have been great and helpful hosts, they showed us everything we needed and were always there to answer our questions. The location of the flat was very good, not far from the beaches and just two blocks to the Lincoln Road, with many restaurants and shops. Everything was exactly as advertised and they provided everything we needed, even two very nice bicycles. All in all we really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to everyone, who wants to visit Miami.
Staying in Frost’s apartment was one of our best experiences with Airbnb. The room is cozy and clean with comfortable bed, everything matches the description and looks exactly how it is shown in pictures. The very best thing – bikes, that you can use for free and location – it is really in the heart of SoBe. Frost is a great host, very nice and helpful. I highly recommend this place! Thanks a lot Frost! :)
Très bon emplacement la plage est a 5 minutes a pied et nous sommes proches de Lincoln Road aussi. La chambre est sympa et les propriétaires sont charmants.
Chambre spacieuse idéalement située en plein coeur de art deco proche de la mer et des commerces à pied. Frost et kate sont vraiment très charmants et accueillants et ils n'hesitent pas à vous donner pleins de conseils pour vous faire profiter au mieux de votre séjour.
Les vélos sont un vrai plus pour decouvrir Miami Beach.
Tous les accessoires de plage sont mis a votre disposition.
Le partages des parties communes (cuisine et salle de bains)
s'est fait naturellement.
On peut se garer facilement dans le quartier (payant) mais le prix très raisonnable 7$ pour (website hidden)ès bon choix et encore merci à Frost et Kate.
Staying at this apartment was great. It has everything you need and you are close to a lot of hot spots in Miami Beach. In addition, Frost's hospitality goes beyond limits.
He did our laundry, because the washing machine of the laundromat was out of order, he picked up a package for me at the post office and gave very good information about nice restaurants, activities and places to hang out.
He even has two bikes, which you can take out for free. What I liked best was the mini map of Miami Beach on the wall with some hot spots marked.
My next time in Miami will definitely will be at Frost's apartment.
Frosts room was in a great location, He and Kate were helpful and hospitable. The bed was very comfortable and the place was very clean with A/C. Downtown was full of good food, shopping, and there were a lot of clubs, be careful not to get scammed in the clubs and don't leave your drink unattended. We ran into some excellent restaurants. The beach was a little overcrowded, and I got stung by a jellyfish, but overall it was great.
Very good communication surpassed any issue very quickly, bed is comfortable, apt and bathroom well cleaned. Super conveniently place!
