Interaction with Guests
i will personally meet with you, but property has a lockbox in case something happen.
Rosa's communication was excellent from the moment we were accepted as guests. Originally we booked for my husband, our 14 year old and me but then our 20 year old decided to come! This meant the apartment was a bit too small as it is compact as you'd expect for a city centre airbnb. I would recommend for up to three people. The location is excellent right on top of everything and the car parking space is a real godsend as parking is difficult. We walked to most places - sight seeing tours, beach, restaurants. We felt safe at all times and the security in the complex is very good. There's a Publix about 15 mins walk away which is a lot cheaper than the nearest store but there's no parking. We ate out a lot and it was expensive but we were warned it was similar to central London prices. Watch for the 20% service some restaurants charge on the bill (for pretty standard service and food as well)! Excellent restaurant right next door (Otentic) though with good food and service. I definitely would recommend this apartment for a three/four day stay in South Beach. The only negative is the much needed air conditioning system is quite noisy especially in the bedroom but going mid summer it's essential and you do get used to it. Thanks Rosa, you were a very attentive host, wished we'd managed to meet!
thank you so much for your review cathy, i know the a/c a is on the wall is noisy, but many buildings at south beach are the same, art deco district , and in order to update all the owners and association and the city of miami beach would have to approve in order to put a central unit. in reference the super market Publix, of course there is a parking inside and is only 5 minutes to go there, this shopping center provide parking free for the first 2 hours, unfortunately we could not talk about that. restaurants in south beach and in all miami tipically charge a minimun of 15 % tips, 18%,20%... but in general is alternative, but waitress always wait to receive a minimun of 15 % because restaurants paid them only 2-3 per hour, they live of the tips.
We met Rosa right outside the very convenient parking garage that is included with the visit. Parking is generally always a hassle in South Beach. The apartment was quaint and extremely clean. My friend and i stopped by for one night. The location of this apartment was perfect, It's about 3 blocks away from the beach and all the great South Beach night life. Most definitely worth booking this apartment
Viaje con mi Esposa por 4 días el departamento es perfecto a pasos de la playa, esta ubicado en un lugar privilegiado cercano a minimarkets, arriendos de bicicletas, farmacias etc.
Ademas el depto tiene artículos de playa para poder y disfrutar ir quitasol, toallas etc.
Recomiendo 100% este departamento
We booked this condo very spontanously...one day in advance. Though everything was pretty perfect. Rosa replied immediately and sent us all the information we needed. During our stay she always was reachable via WhatsApp, which is not a problem for non Americans because there is secured wifi at the condo.
The condo itself was awesome. Not very big but nicely and modern furnished and clean. It looks exactly as on the pictures. Everything was there, fully equiped kitchen, towels for the condo and the beach, beach chairs, cooler, umbrellas, even some beach toys for kids.
The condo is nicely located on Washington Avenue, 5 min walk to the wonderful and huge beach of SoBe. Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive are just around the corner. Supermarket, laundry, Walgreens, etc. everything in walking distance. Bus stop to downtown Miami is right in front of the building. The garage is a big plus as parking fees are extremly high.
We would definetly stay again with Rosa and therefore can only recommend it to everyone who wants to stay in the heart of SoBe.
Thanks for letting us stay at your condo, Rosa!!! See you next time in SoBe!
El departamento está excelentemente ubicado, en pleno South Beach. Que tenga cochera, es una de las cosas por las que más vale l pena. Rosa es muy amable y estuvo muy atenta para todo. Muy recomendable!
Um es kurz zu machen:
- Zentrale Lage zum Ocean Drive und zum Strand (nur 5 Minuten Fussweg)
- Gute Restaurants und brauchbare Supermärkte in unmittelbarer Nähe
- Alle wichtigen Dinge fanden sich in der Wohnung
- Parkplatz (sehr hilfreich in South Beach)
- Rosa ist eine hilfsbereite und gut erreichbare Gastgeberin
- Schlafzimmer liegt zu einer stark befahrenen und sehr lauten Straße
- Direkte Nachbarn kamen beide Male zwischen 4 und 5 Uhr morgens nach Hause und haben Party gemacht mit lauter Musik
- Schlafen ohne Ohrstöpsel war für uns daher nicht möglich
- Fussboden war nicht sauber, hatten immer schwarze Füße (nicht schön)
- Normal ausgestattetes Appartment, absolut kein Luxus-Appartment
To cut a long story:
- Centrally located to Ocean Drive and the beach (just 5 minutes to walk)
- Good restaurants and useful supermarkets around
- All the important things have been found in the apartment
- Parking lot (very helpful at South Beach)
- Rosa is a helpful and accessible hostess
- Bedroom is located to a busy and very noisy street
- Both mornings the direct neighbors came between 4-5 a.m. in the morning back home and made party with loud music
- Sleeping without earplugs was not possible for us
- Floor was not clean, we had always black feet (not nice)
- Normally fitted apartment, it’s absolutely not luxury apartment.
dear michael I appreciate your time to write a review, in reference the name that i chose to advertise the apartment is only a name, i can write a gorgeous or another name, when you chose an apartment you have to read all the details, airconditioning wall, means that there is no central air, and most of the building in the art deco district has a/c wall units, which makes a noise, in reference the dirty floors, the only thing I can think is as the balcony was changed maybe the constrcutions brought to much dust and the a/c conducts filter that, because i always take the time to check all is clean. so sorry for that.
last, in reference the neighbors and partys, you had to tell me that, to spoke with the owner and made a complaint because is a residential building and rules as I always tell the guest, are no parties, not noisy, after 10 pm.
i will talk with the owners to make sure they tell their guest follow the rules.
south beach is a really noisy city, more on ocean drive whe re is the night life, trust me, my apartment is not noisy compare with collins av, and ocean drive.
if you are looking for an elegant apartment or hotel you always have to read the details, and also you have to view the reviews and nightly rates, none 130 or less will be an elegant apartment....
I felt right at home. This was a much greater experience than staying at a hotel. The location was great for visiting Miami. I defeninetly recomend this place.
