The apartment was exactly as described. It's perfect for two people, more than that would feel small I think. The interaction with Gabby was easy. The apartment has no keys, all digital entry to building and apartment, which was awesome. The location couldn't be better, south of fifth (SoFi) which means you're close to everything with none of the crazy. One small complaint: no cold water in the shower. Miami is hot, taking a hot shower after a hot day of walking around or at the beach is kind of miserable. All in all very positive experience, clean apartment, clean building, great area. Go ahead a book it!
Despite a bit of an issue getting a hold of the host so I could get into the property initially, everything was great about the condo. The location is perfect being only a block from the beach, and very quiet. Walgreens and CVS are only a few short blocks away making it easy to stock up for the stay. The studio is large and well appointed with a washer/dryer, dishwasher, stove, microwave, as well as dishes and utensils. I was pleased with the comfortable king sized bed, and there was a futon although I didn't use it. Central air was a bonus as it would have been a shame to block any of the ambient light with a window unit. This is definitely a great condo and location, and I would recommend it for a relaxed stay in South Beach!!
First off, we enjoyed staying at this property. The location is perfect, a block from the beach and just south enough from the noise of Ocean Drive that it's peaceful. It was clean enough, could probably use a freshening up, but was light, bright and airy.
A few suggestions for the host though. There were some basic items that really need to be available. No cups, mugs or wine glasses? Just a few red solo cups. Not ok. No chopping board or dish cloth makes using the kitchen difficult and the microwave didn't work. Also, no basics like salt/ pepper. I understand these aren't essential to provide but it would have been a nice thing to have on hand.
There's also no wardrobe or anywhere to hang your clothes. The futon became our clothing area and we just had to leave everything splayed out. And for those of you who think anyone could sleep on this futon, think again. It's pretty much just solids slats of wood covered in fabric. We wouldn't sit on it let alone sleep on it.
That said, the main bed was large and comfortable so two people, and two alone, would be happy here.
I think this property just needs a fresh coat of paint, a good clean and some more attention to detail. For the price it's a great option if the above items are addressed. Also, the host could be a little more proactive with communication. We tried to contact her before we left on our trip and didn't hear back until the day we flew in. I would have felt more secure if we'd been in touch prior.
Oh and another positive.... the property has no keys and is touchpad operated which relieved the stress of needing to leave/ share keys.
Location is great... Not too far from the action but far enough when you don't want to be amongst it. Place is as described - perfect for small family get away
The studio on Sobe was the perfect location for my stay. It was close to all the action of Sobe, but at the same time in a quiet area where you didn't hear all the traffic and commotion on the busy streets near the beach. It was very easy to get in touch with Gabby and she answered all my questions in a prompt and courteous fashion. The unit was clean and very comfortable for my stay and I would definitely book again with Gabby!

First time using Airbnb - overall the apartment was incredible. You simple cannot beat the location at one block from the beach. Key code made for easy entry. Bed was comfortable and kitchen stocked with anything needed to cook. Huge tv and full cable was a definite plus. Place easily sleeps four if two are fine on a double futon. Only concern was low lighting at the main building entrance that never locked. This was not an issue as we still felt quite comfortable but might not be for everyone. Would definitely book again!

About the Host, Gabby
I grew up in Brazil but now living in Miami and loving life. I've been working nearly full time in the vacation rental business for over 6 years. I've made many great friends in this business.
