A small but yet lovely BR APT right in front of the beach will make you feel at home.
The entire apartment is shared with my mom and I that includes bathroom, kitchen living room and balcony. There are two separate bedrooms each with a private door. The master bedroom is ours and the spare bedroom is big enough for a single person. It is incredibly comfortable considering its size. The bedroom comes with a full size bed, closet and TV wifi is included. The building has it's own pool with the view to the beach and theres also direct access to the beach form the pool. We are a non-smoking house but feel free to smoke outside in the balcony.
The location is wonderful! Ocean drive is the center of the Miami Art Deco District, the famous Versace Mansion along with many other attractions are only a few blocks away not to mention the beach is literally a 5 second walk!! Lincoln road mall and many supermarkets are nearby like whole foods, publix, epicure as well as convenience stores; Walgreens, CVS etc. You'll find yourself very well centered and surrounded by all the FUN Miami has to offer. It's the perfect getaway for the traveler thats looking for a good party or a beautiful walk on the beach.
I'm a student majoring in graphic design so Im often busy with school unless I'm on vacation. My mom is more like my sister we have a very strong relationship.. she only speaks spanish but loves to try and interact with a sense a humor and works 3 to for 4 times a week. We are both very clean, organized, respectful, welcoming and kind people.
Getting around is really easy specially around this area. Walking is fair enough but there is also on the go bicycles or other fun things to rent like scooters or segway scooters (from mall cop) etc. If your on a budget Swoop Swoop is the new way to get around in South Beach without having to pay for a taxi, and without having to deal with parking hassles.. it is absolutely FREE! the drivers work off tip but the minimum is like idk 2 to 3 bucks.. thats what a regular bus charges although theres also the local 25 cent bus with a specific route. Anyways transportation isn't a problem, Miami Beach in general is quite easy to get around..its all fairly close and walking usually does the trick.
Winter and spring is the BEST time visit Miami!
Very nice, perfect location near to the sea, Xavi and Xavi's mom are really kind, their tips for visiting different places in Miami were valuable and helpful, you feel like at home. Highly recommendable!!
Wonderful hosts, very nice and comfortable. Small room but that is fine for one person. Awesome pool by the beach! Highly recommended!
Xavi es super tierna y el departamento fue muy limpio y cómodo. Además, está MUY bien ubicado en South Beach a unos pasos de la parte famosa de Ocean Drive (pero en un edificio bien tranquilo, privado y seguro). Desde el balcón se puede ver el lindo mar azul. Yo llegué desde el aeropuerto en autobus y la parada queda a menos que 5 minutos caminando al departamento.
Mi estadía fue muy corta así que no hubo tiempo de gozar de la piscina del edificio que también ofrece aceso directo a la playa. Logré ver por un momento a la mami de Xavi pero como yo iba de prisa y ella estuvo hablando por teléfono no nos conocimos por más que una sonrisa y un saludo de hola con las manos.
El cuarto es pequeño pero más que adequado, con una cama bien cómodoa. Hay un clóset para colgar la ropa, una cómoda (allí pudes encontrar un papelito con los detalles del WIFI) y una (website hidden) puede enchufar la cargadora del teléfono y posarlo por unos de los estantes que cuelgan por la pared.
El baño (compartido) fue nítido y yo no me acostumbro de compartir el baño cuando voy de vacaciones pero en serio no había ningún problema. De verdad fue casi como vivir en departamento propio por las pocas horas que estuve allí.
En fin, creo que no hay mejor lugar donde quedarse en Miami Beach que en la casa de Xavi, considerando el precio.
Xavi and her mom where great!! Everything was exactly as said in her description. I had a great time at this great location.
all the other great reviews rang totally true during my short stay. xavi and her mom were very nice and accommodating. i actually loved the smallness of the room (being right next to the bathroom is a definite plus) and the rest of the apartment is so cool and interesting anyway. the beach takes less than 3 minutes to get to and everything else is easily accessible by walking. ocean drive is a very happenin' place, especially at night. could not have asked for a better place to stay!
Thanks Xavi for a great stay, being so friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay at your place again. Great location too!
The room is tiny and a bit stuffy and hot at night but Xavi and her mom are super nice and accommodating. The room is right by the beach and it's a great price for where it's located.
We have been there for a week, Xavi and his mother were wonderful and everything was perfect. If we have to come back again sure we will stay there.
Xavi and her mother were very welcoming, and their home is in a fantastic location. The bed was comfortable, the deck was good for lounging around, and the pool and quick beach access were the proverbial cherry on top.
