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!
Exactly as advertised. The room is barely bigger than the bed, but it's comfortable and has its own tv. Ten seconds from the beach and access to a pool. Plus the apartment has a puppy! Xavi and her mother were very accommodating. This room is perfect if you just want a bed to crash on and plan on being out and about for your entire stay.
I had an amazing stay at Xavi's apartment. The room is clean, the bed is comfortable, it's small sure, but we only need a bed to sleep right ?!! The location of the building is perfect. The beach is just behind and when you're there and you want to go to the restrooms of refill your bottle of water, you can come back and do that in the lobby next to the pool. Xavi and her mom are very welcoming, I recommend it to everyone !
Xavi ' s place was great. It's an amazing location, I couldn't of found anything better. It's far enough south to be on a slightly quieter block in SOBE compared to central Ocean Ave, and the apartment building is very peaceful. Xavi was a great host, and I was bummed that I was only able to stay at her place for one night. I would definitely recommend her for a future visit to Miami!
Xavi and her mother are excellent hostesses and very nice people. The apt. is very clean and the room is small but comfortable and quiet - and you can ask them to raise the AC if it's too hot. The building is very safe and in a quiet area of South Beach, yet only a few blocks away from all the action. There's a pool and direct beach access. Great location.
I had a wonderful time during my stay at Xavi. The room is small but super comfortable. The bed is very comfy too. The apartment is very nice and has a nice view from the balcony. The beach is step always and is never crowded because you're not near the big hotels. The location was perfect. We had a bike station a block over and we'd bike everywhere we had to go. Cabs were found very easily too. There is a Walgreens two blocks away which is a life saver. Everything is close by, restaurants, shops, bars. Xavi and her mom were super friendly and accommodating. She answered all of out needs and questions and was always available for anything. Would def stay again.
My stay with Xavi and her mother was the best!! The room is small, but exactly as described. The bed is comfortable, and their home is lovely, clean and beautifully decorated!! They have the cutest puppy on earth. If I didn't want to stay with Xavi again I would have taken the dog with me!!!
I am from the area and I will say, for tourists, it's ideal! Steps from the beach and everywhere else in the South of Fifth neighborhood!!
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 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!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
