About this listing
Hello, We are renting out this studio apartment here in beautiful Miami Beach. The design is identical to our couple other ones in the same building giving away that clean pure fresh feeling.
We just got done renovating every single aspect of the unit. We basically tore it down to the cement walls and floor and then rebuilt it with functionality and design in mind.
This unit (along with our other three) offers FREE PARKING which is hard to find in Miami Beach.

You are renting directly from the owners (my wife and I), and there is no daily housekeeping. We will leave you plenty of fresh towels and if you need anything else please let us know. We will do our best to accommodate early check ins or late check outs. It really just depends on availability.
The location of the apartment is amazing. It on the BEACH side of Collins avenue in millionaires row in Miami Beach . It is about a 10 minute drive to south beach as well as a 20 minute drive up to Aventura shopping mall. There are numerous buses and taxis always available on Collins ave since it is the primary artery connecting North Beach to South Beach. There is also access to the Miami Beach public bike system called Deco Bike.
To access the beach, you only need to take the elevator to LL (Lower Level) and walk past the pool and you are on the beach. There are no streets to cross or ways to get lost which makes it very safe for children
The most amazing part of this apartment is that even from the
amazing 180 degree views of the turquoise water you can occasionally see fish swimming below.
NO SMOKING - this is first and foremost
Dont make too much noise and bother the neighbors
No Animals (we might make an exception for a very small dog)
Keep it clean, we wont be there to monitor it but we will trust you
Please do not open the windows. It is usually pretty windy and the humid air causes damage to interior of the building.
Be flexible with checkout and checkin times. If the apartment is clean available early in the morning then you can check in early. Likewise, if nobody is checking in until the following day, you can stay later. Just please be flexible.
The host made us feel most welcome. He wrote an extensive list of tips and know-how's that only someone living in the city would know. He had a few sundry items in the fridge and cupboards for us and even wrote an email to make sure we had gotten in okay. Everything from check-in, to use of Beach items, to restaurants was laid out. It was very well-organized!
Great Experience. I had a wonderful time. The apartment looks just like in the pictures. A lot of extras including like beach umbrella, beach chairs, drinks, paper towel, etc. There are some stores within the building and the prices are very reasonable. The beach is spectacular and temperature during the summer was great.
I was referred to use Airbnb for my trip from a friend who also booked her hotel room through here and hands down it was the best choice I have made. Shane and Maru were awesome hosts! The booking process was quick/simple and everything I needed to know about the room/hotel was given right away. The room looked exactly like the pictures posted on the profile, when I walked in I was in "awwww" everything looked so clean and organized. It showed me that Shane and Maru take their business very serious. I loved the view of the ocean from my room, absolutely breathtaking. I also liked how I have access to everything the hotel offers. The hotel staff and security were really nice and welcoming. Even though valet would get a bit busy at times during the day, I still liked that the hotel provides 1 parking space for residents at no extra charge. This location is walking/short driving distance to everything Miami Beach has to offer. So if you're planning a trip to Miami Beach any time soon I highly recommend you book a room with Shane and Maru.
Shane and Maru were great hosts! Always ensuring that we were confortable and happy. Everything was perfect! The apartament was exactly as described in the ad; beautiful and clean with amazing view. Thank you for everything!!
Waren bereits zum 2ten Mal hier. Wie beim letzten mal sehr sehr schönes Apartment mit direktem Meerblick. Die Einrichtung ist neu und stylisch und alles ist sehr sauber. Wir durften alles von der sehr üppigen Einrichtung (Shampoo, Handtücher, Strandtücher, Tennisschläger, Kücheneinrichtung, Kaffeemaschine, Liegestühle, Strandschirme usw.) uneingeschränkt benutzen. Das Gebäude hat einen Zugang zum Strand, 2x Fitnesscenter, Spabereich, einen kleinen Supermarkt, gratis Parkplatz usw. Shane und Maru haben uns zur Begrüssung eine persönliche Nachricht mit einer Information zum Apartment, der Lage und mit ein paar guten Tipps für Restaurants, Shopping usw. bereitgelegt. Im Kühlschrank waren bereits einige Getränke kaltgestellt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
They're so considerate and sweet! They have anything you'd need in the apt, everything's clean and with good quality! You wouldn't regret if you'd ever stayed there. I'd like to go back again! Thanks for everything ;)
Shane and Maru were perfect hosts. They were communicative and responsive. The apartment was well appointed and perfect for a weekend getaway. Could not recommend them more!

About the Host, Shane And Maru
We are Shane and Maru, young newlyweds that moved from California (Shane) and Buenos Aires, Argentina (Maru) to Miami Beach about 3 years ago. We work here, live here and play here.
We now have a little business renting out a few identical apartments as vacation rentals. The name of our company is called:
Pure Miami Beach Apartment Rentals
When we have free time we love traveling and spending time in The Bahamas with our little poodle Yoshi. I (Shane) work with Apple Computer and when I have free time love to spearfish and im learning how to fly. Maru is a painter and a visual merchandiser at the most exclusive boutique in Miami beach.
While we both have regular day jobs we are usually available if you have any questions either in English, Spanish or a little Italian.
Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you to Miami Beach.
