A small but yet lovely BR APT right in front of the beach will make you feel at home.
The entire apartment is shared, kitchen living room and balcony. There are Two private rooms. The spare bedroom is big enough for a single person. It is incredibly comfortable considering its size. The bedroom includes a full size bed, closet, TV & FREE WIFI. The Building complex has it's own pool with the beach view and direct access to the beach.
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.
Interaction with Guests
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. Blocks are shorter than expected therefore everything is at walking distance. The Metro bus comes by every 15 min and travels to downtown or even aventura.
If you have a car there is public parking depending on the night hard to find but not impossible (no parking inside the gated complex, sorry)
Other Things to Note
From the MIA airport there are four options;
Metro bus#150 = 2.75$ (about an hour ride)
Shuttle bus = 25$ (about 30 min)
Me on call = 30$ (about 20 min)
Cab = 40$ (about 20 min)
Non-smoking apt but feel free to smoke in the balcony.
Xavi was great and very accommodating. I highly recommend staying with her while in Miami!
Xavi and her mom were lovely hosts . Both warm and welcoming . The location is great - near the beach, plenty of places to eat, great to walk around.
While the room is small, you can use the living room and the balcony.
I definitely recommend staying here - everything was as described.
Xavi and her mother were very hospitable, polite and extremely clean. They were the perfect hosts. After a long day at the beach, Xavi's mother offered me a plate of rice and lentil stew. It was delicious! Nicolai, there dog was immaculate, sweet and great company too.
As far as the building, it was right on the beach, with a great pool and close to everything in South Beach.
Xavi is a great host. Very welcoming. Her apartment is in a great location on the beach and within walking distance to the best nightlife. She is very attentive and quick to respond.
very confortable room in best location of south bech...the host is very frliendly and the house is very clean..
The host was very patient with my extremely late arrival. The description of the room in this mom, daughter & dog condo was accurate. The place is close to everything in South Beach — restaurants, shops, beach, museums etc.
L'accoglienza è stata molto buona. Madre e figlia mi sono venuti incontro perché non trovavo il cancello di ingresso.
Onestamente non ricordo la descrizione della dtanza e di servizi nell'annuncio, ma la stanza era molto piccola ed il bagno non privato, ma in comune con la famiglia. Ripeto magari era specificato nell'annuncio quindi non voglio sottolinearlo come aspetto negativo.
Per il resto l'appartamentino è super comodo. Su Ocean Drive (strada principale di Miami), piscina all'interno del complesso (molto pulita) ed accesso quasi diretto alla spiaggia. Un minuto a piedi dal palazzo.
Im American but raised by Colombian parents. Im a very warm hearted, down to earth kind of person that loves traveling, art, music and everything else life brings along..
