South Beach, Florida has been called the American Riviera and an Art Deco Playground. Yet there's more than fine white sand to South Beach's fantasyland of exuberant Deco architecture. South Beach offers an eclectic mix of world-class boutiques, galleries and stores. It's also a culinary hot spot for gourmet to casual cuisine. At night, South Beach comes alive with crowds dressed in party-casual chic.
Guest will have access to the most beautiful beaches in the world. Tons of shopping, restaurants, and the hottest nightclubs South Beach has to offer. We are just steps away from the world famous Ocean Drive. Bicycles, Beach Chairs, and free WIFI. Hot and sunny all year around.
The clear blue water and the white sand beaches are a must-see for any Miami visitor; even for locals, the beautiful beach just can't get old. If you're taking a break from the sun, check out one of the many museums, shops or historic buildings in the area. Take a stroll down Lincoln Road for the best people watching in Miami or cozy up to the fancy new bar in the historic Versace Mansion
In both daytime and at nightfall, the South Beach section of Miami Beach is a major entertainment destination with hundreds of nightclubs, restaurants, boutiques and hotels. The area is popular with both American and international tourists (mainly from Canada, Latin America, Europe, Israel, the Caribbean and within the United States), with some having permanent or second homes.
Get up close and personal on a tour or excursion by air, water or land. Around here, you don’t have to stick to a dreary old tour; you can hop aboard just about any mode of transportation and see the city from a new angle each time. Book a few tours during your stay and never see the same thing twice! From celebrity houses to Florida swampland you can’t find a more varied city to tour anywhere else!

Perfect Miami Beach experience in that beautiful apartment, ideally located. Great contact with Gaudy who helped us whenever we needed.
Wonderful place, Great Location, Awesome Host who is very accommodating!
Will definitely stay again! Thank you for everything!
The listing was accurate. The images actually do not do the size justice.
The location was very accessible, apartment was quiet and great value!
Overall we had a very pleasant experience. Great location.. So close to the beach it is instantly refreshing! The place is huge and was perfect for our party of four. The host was amazing and communication was very efficient. She went out of her way to make the stay very easy!!
I was at Sara Gaudy's flat in Miami for 5 days with 4 friends. The location couldn't be better. We had an ocean view balcony. The walk to the beach is about 1 minute. Just around the corner (also 1 minute walk) is a Starbucks and a Chase Bank. Two blocks away (walk of max. 5 minutes) is a 24hour Walgreens where you can buy everything you need for your stay. The flat was also very clean. The only thing that we were not satisfied about, was, that there are no cleaning tools in the flat.
To sum it up - it is a very good choice, you are right in the middle of everything and your stay will be amazing.
Sara Gaudy is also very helpful and always reachable by phone if you need something. She works in the shop in the same building and her friends at the shop are also very helpful.
Four of us travelled from Sydney to spend a couple of days in Miami - given we only had a very short time we wanted to make sure we were centrally located, near the beach, near food and drinks. We could not ask for more from Gaudy Sarah's place- it was like walking into a scene from a movie! Absolute luxury! So much space! Private balcony with views of the water. It was beyond our expectations. Very happy and highly recommended for anyone- will be our first choice when we come back next time for a longer stay :)
TWO WORDS - STAY AWAY!
As AirBnB hosts ourselves, we were truly appalled at the way were treated during our stay.
From the beginning, Sara made this a truly miserable experience with her flippant attitude and rude demeanor. We stayed one night and that was one too many. If you are looking for the personal touch of staying with AirBnB, this place will not deliver.
Sara took a payment for parking for both cars upon arrival. After this we attempted to “check-in” and were given codes to access the apartment. We were not escorted to the apartment and as we entered on our own we found the cleaning staff still working. This was thirty minutes past the time we were advised we could check-in. We left our bags and returned in an hour and the cleaning staff was gone.
We found the apartment to be dirty and many items were broken or in unusable condition. The beds were so unconformable it felt as if were we sleeping on hardwood floors. No shampoo or soap was left in the bathrooms and the towels provided were dirty and were in bad condition.
Later, we returned from dinner at 9pm to find a woman standing in the parking garage waiting for our group. She advised that she was an employee of Sara’s and that we only paid for one parking spot and needed to move our additional car as we were blocking other cars in the garage. Both accusations were false as Sara took the parking payment from both myself and my friend so she understood both cars would be left in the garage overnight. Further, our cars were parked against the wall and were not blocking any other vehicles. In fact, we were the only cars blocked in. Sara’s employee followed us three times and then came to our door late at night (11pm). We had not met her and had no way of confirming she was an employee. We felt harassed and frankly, unsafe. We did not appreciate her coming to our door so late at night.
I offered to discuss the matter with Sara over the phone in the safety of the apartment, not over the woman’s phone inside of the apartment. I felt this was a reasonable offer but one Sara chose to ignore. Later, after our stay, she had the audacity to request an additional $20.00 for parking through AirBnB.
I am certain the only reason Sara has a single good review is because people are willing to overlook her attitude and poor treatment of her guests for the location and view of her apartment. Please be advised, there are many other apartments and hotels available with a comparable view. DO NOT BOOK THIS APARTMENT. It is not worth the grief that you will surely endure.
