I stayed in this residence for 6 days for a little vacation it was perfect. Billy supplied all of the things I needed and the location was only 10 minutes from away from the beach and strip. I would definitely revisit when I come back to sobe ❤️
Initial steps of booking and getting the keys were very smooth. Billy was not in town so he left keys in a lock box and communicated very clear instructions for entering and getting settled in. Apartment is on a quiet block about 5-7 minute walk to the beach. There is a Whole Foods about 10-12 minute walk away which was good to have nearby. The apt is in ok condition, as shown on pictures, but needs some work. Shower/tub was very old, knobs were loose and the putty or adhesive they attempted to fix it with was peeling off. It wasn’t dirty, but definitely not freshly cleaned. There was dust on shelves and old candles in the living area. We found 2 roaches under the sink which was horrible. The cable was not working completely being that there were basic channels not available. There are also MANY cats surrounding the apartment and hence their odor lingers in the front and back areas outside. This is something that should be mentioned to a potential guest before booking. We were not able to use the oven throughout our stay because it was not working properly. It is disappointing because we had groceries to prepare meals. When we called the host regarding these issues, a lady answered and was not apologetic or helpful, instead resorted to just asking if we wanted to move out. We did not hear from Billy until late afternoon the next day informing us he was not in town and had no one available to tend to the issues. By then we made other meal arrangements and decided to spend most of our time out of the apt. It was overall disappointing that we had to deal with all of that especially since we booked 5 days. I have had great ABB experiences prior to this. If Billy makes some improvements to the apt, it would make the overall experience much better.
I'm sorry to hear Luwam's review. I'd like to clarify the "issues" she mentioned: I contacted the cable company immediately, the customer service assured me there was no problem with the cable; She complained about the cats. there are cats all over South Beach, nothing I can do about it ; She complained about the roaches, I found several food left over in trash bags inside the apt after her check out, it's possible that insects and roaches can get in. Although there is regular Pest Control at all buildings to prevent them; last but not least, she called me on Friday night, July 3rd, stating that the oven was not working. She was told that it wouldn't be possible to have it fix that night, I would try to find a technician to come. No technician available until Monday. She was asking me to replace or do somehting about the oven because of her groceries. She was told that I was several hours away from South Beach. I couldnt get there in time to check if there was a real problem. She kept insisting I had to do something about it, even though the stove and microwave were fine. At that point, she was asked if she'd rather move out to avoid all the problems above. By the way, the oven was working!
Needless to say, my previous guests and the guest right after her, have only made compliments about this place and my services as Host.
I spent a week in Billy s place with a friend. Despite the weather which was not so good we had a great time as his place is comfy and the A C works well so we were not too warm when we stayed in the flat. Even if it makes a lot of noise.. The location in the city is awesome 10min walk from the ocean and all the biggest clubs of miami. Billy was super nice and he welcomed us very well ! The appartment could have be cleaner but it was ok !(shower lil bit too old and some dust was left on some shelfs in the kitchen.) But i will definitly go back to his place if i have the chance to ! Thank you again for everything Billy, very nice host with very good communication before and during our stay !
The host was understanding I had my phone stolen it was a misunderstanding but he cleared it all up. I had a great time here overall. Won't mind staying here again.
The location was really excellent. We could do anything by walking on South Beach. The price can't be better. Verlaine brought us some local parking passes which was very useful. She was always very nice to us and answered fast. On the negative side : the AC is a little old and noisy and the bed a little small but we got used to that
Billy was a gentleman from the time I arrived. He was really strict about not having more than 2 people in the room, so if you are thinking of having visitors or company, this isn't the place for you. The apartment looks as described. There were utensils to use, a toaster, a coffee pot and glasses. There is nothing fancy like matching towel sets and no beach towels so you will have to bring or buy your own. The bed is thin but okay to sleep on for a few nights. If you like fluffy pillows, please bring one as the pillows were a little on the soft, flimsy side. The bathroom was clean which was a big plus for me. The neighborhood is quiet. It's about. 5 blocks from the beach and ocean avenue so if you want to be near all of the fun and night life but still want to get a good night's sleep, this is the the place for you. He has wifi which is a bonus. Didn't use the tv but there is one. The couch is love seat size so no one should plan to sleep there with the exception of a small child.
Billy allowed us to check out close to 6for an additional fee which worked great since we had an 8pm flight.
All in all, the stay was great and fir a great price. I would definitely stay again if I am looking for a place that isn't directly in the middle of things. About a 10 -15 minute walk to fat Tuesday's, and other popular places Walgreens is 4 blocks away and that came in handy for a quick snack, bottles of water and toiletries.
Thank you Billy for everything!
