My mother and I had an absolutely fabulous 3 weeks at this apartment in January 2015. The photos are quite representative, however the real thing turned out even better.
The apartment is more spacious than it looks in the photos. The rooms are quite big, even by Miami standards. It is tastefully decorated, has all the necessary appliances, and a lot of extras. The candles, lavender sachets, and complete beach set were a nice touch. I also want to mention the mattresses on the queen size beds. They were just amazing! The balcony has an unobstructed ocean view. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are a bonus.
The location is great, right on the ocean with almost private beaches. Only a short walk to the fabulous Bal Harbor stores and restaurants. 3 blocks from huge Publix supermarket and public transportation. Easy ride to SoBe and local attractions. Also the town of Surfside has its own charm, i.e. cozy and affordable family run restaurants, elegant boutiques, spas, cafés, and small grocery stores.
The owner, Dolores, is a great hostess. As we stayed for a relatively long period of time and there were a few cases when we needed to get in touch with her. She was always available on the phone and responsive to our questions.
So the question might arise "what's the catch"? There is none. The only downside to our entire vacation has nothing to do with this apartment. It pertains to the noise from multiple construction sites in the area. Unfortunately for the visitors construction is ubiquitous in Miami these days so Surfside is not an exception.
Great apartment for vacations! Nice neighborhood, very close to grocery, pharmacy and restaurants, easy access to the beach and a great host! Throughout the stay Dolores checked with me if everything was OK and made herself very accessible, even though the apartment was perfect and I didn't have any problems. The apartment is also walking distance to Bal Harbor, so it's perfect for a shopping-vacation as well. Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this apartment (and eventually come back when in FL)! =)
My family and I just returned from a week stay at this lovely and perfectly situated apartment. It is on the beach in the quiet and safe neighbourhood of Surfside, and just a pleasant 20 minute drive from South Beach and borders Bal Harbor. Our host Dolores was always available and responded quickly and stocked the apartment with everything we needed when at home and the beach. Not all units are as well stocked and it was very appreciated. The photos reflect the unit and we felt very welcome in the building. There is a heated pool and gym, parking and laundry is included which is really nice. I thought it was great and we will stay here again. Thanks so much Dolores!
Nos pareció muy cómodo el departamento, los espacios y la ubicación para nosotros fue perfecta. Es totalmente recomendable para una pareja con un hijo o dos. Las recomendaciones que arreglen la grifería de la cocina junto con poner enchufe en la habitación extra. Son detalles pequeños que pueden ayudar a mejorar las instalaciones. Por ultimo nos hubiese gustado conocer a la anfitriona como un gesto de buena educación y no dejar todo al chat sino que esto sea complementario a darse a conocer en persona. De todas maneras nos gustaría volver.
Gracias por tomarte el tiempo de escribir un review. Te agradezco las recomendaciones. Lamento que te haya parecido de mala educacion que no los haya podido conocer, no siempre puedo ir a los check in y check out, no creo que sea una cuestion de educacion. No sabia que querian conocerme, tal vez si me lo hubieran sugerido, me hubiera organizado para pasar a verlos en algun otro momento. Dejamos un telefono para poder tener comunicacion constante con nuestros huéspedes y poder resolver cualquier inconveniente que surja, ademas de que sea una servicio extra que no se da en todos los departamentos.
We were looking for a quiet and modern place in Miami Beach, as well as a place that was not offered by some real estate agent ie with a personal touch (an issue in Miami). The place fits the bill. Though we sadly never met our host, the location is good and the place is quiet, clean, and modern. If you want to spend quiet days at the beach or pool look no further. Although some places like restaurants are in walking distance, a car is recommended.
El departamento y la atencion de Dolores supero nuestras expectativas. Sin dudas volveremos a este espectacular departamento en Surfside. La ubicacion es ideal, sobre la playa y a pocas cuadras del centro de Bal Harbour con supermercado y farmacias y todo lo que se necesita. Las comodidades del departamento son muy completas.
