The apt had everything we needed and it was in a nice location. The place is in mid beach and if you are not familiar, that is a little away from the action which was great for us. The beach is so calm, warm and relatively empty. All the good stuff is a short drive away so you can really enjoy the city. The hosts charged us an extra $150 after we booked which was not previously communicated and felt very unprofessional, but we didn't want to lose our place so we paid (sad face). They claimed it was to cover for extra cleaning, but very odd to be charged before night 1... Also, they were difficult to get a hold of after we reserved our place, but before our trip which made us very nervous as we were coming from Cancun and didn't know if our place was ready until after we landed (scary). Anyway, good spot. Overpriced for what it is, but nice...
I am very surprised by Enrique's comments and complaint about the "extra cleaning fee" when in fact this was our way of helping him out! When Enrique made the reservation through AirBnb, he made it only for 2 guests (and only paid for a 2-guest stay), when in fact he knew that there would be 4 guests staying in the apartment! Instead of charging him the additional $25/day for the 3rd and 4th guest, (which would have increased his costs by several hundreds of dollars), or cancel the reservation, (which we had a right to do because he paid only for 2 guests), we opted to accommodate him for a nominal amount, (the extra cleaning fee for the additional 2 guests)-- which was a fraction of the cost that he would have had to pay AirBnb for the 4-guest stay! He appeared very appreciative and thankful for this alternative solution. Not sure what his complaint is regarding ability to contact us prior to arrival day? We sent him various emails and he took a long time to respond, always claiming that he was traveling. Nevertheless we always made contact well in advance of his arrival day and we set up and coordinated the check- in time and meeting upon their arrival without a hitch!?!?
Fantastic apartment, highly recommend.
We, 2 adults and 2 kids (6 & 2) stayed here for 5 days in early May. The apartment & building are great, very modern, clean and safe. The pool is perfectly warm and the beach right on your door step.
The main area of South Beach is only a 10 minute car/Uber ride away.
Benny warmly greeted us upon arrival (even though we where a little late!) and took the time to run through all the amenities within the apartment and also the building.
Would certainly look to stay here again for our next trip to Miami.
It was our second stay at Crystal house and we are, once again, happy and we'll recommend it. The view is great and awesome, the apartment is well situated. We had a very good time and we are craving to come back asap.

Great place to stay! Exactly as described, great location, would stay again.
This was an amazing property that completely exceeded our expectations. We were welcomed by the host and found all of the building staff to be welcoming and helpful. The apartment was spotless, comfortable, and had everything that we needed for a great stay. The beach and the pool were beautiful. We had tons of space for a family of 4 with two teenage kids. It was great to be able to walk along the boardwalk to nearby hotels for a quick meal or drink. We would most certainly stay here again and recommend the property and the hosts to anyone!
Excelente departamento, muy bien equipado y cuidado. Encontramos todo de acuerdo a lo que habíamos establecido.los anfitriones nos estaban esperando para explicarnos él funcionamiento del complejo, nos atendieron con mucha amabilidad y estuvieron pendientes de cualquier necesidad que tuvimos para solucionarlo al momento.
