Pro's: Host was very responsive when booking and always available to answer questions. The condo was big enough to fit 8 girls comfortably. Bathrooms and beds were great. Location was good but there was a lot of questionable people hanging outside the entrance probably because it was spring break. The higher streets (11 and up) on Ocean Drive seemed a bit safer.
Con's: When we checked in after a long day of traveling the apartment had no toilet paper and no paper towels!!! After traveling all morning the last thing anyone wanted to do was google search a food store and trek to get toilet paper! We alerted the gentleman that checked us in and he assured us that the cleaning people would deliver it. Nothing was ever delivered.
Early check in and late check out are not an option unless you want to pay additional money. It's clear this place is run by a management company. No mom and pop hosts here.
Michael is a very good host who takes care of his guests and have very helpful guests that will attend to your requests. The apartment looks and feel even better compared to the pictures and it's ideal if you want to have a good place to chill out after long hours in the beach or pre-game at night!
Good location, there is food literally just outside the apartment and just 10 minutes away from the beach. I will recommend anyone who is travelling in a big group and who want to have a good time in Miami to secure this location.
Thank you for your amazing review.
Please allow me to share your private feedback as well:
"Amazing location, top notch service, incredible apartment"
I also want to clarify for future guests that the apartment is on the beach so its a max 1 min walk to it. The 10 min walk Leon was referring to was probably the way from the beach to one of his favorite restaurants.
Thank you again for staying with me!
First of all, we had a great time and the apartment was more or less as expected. The best things about the apartment are it's location and it's size.
Full disclosure--it is not a true three bedroom. I somewhat expected this going in, so it wasn't a problem. The second bedroom is located in what was a walk-in-closet off of the large master bathroom. You must walk through the master bedroom and bathroom to get to it (which isn't a problem unless someone is sleeping late). The third bedroom with twin bed has it's own bathroom.
The pictures are accurate though there are a few minor maintenance issues -- small tiles missing, lights hanging down, broken closet doors. Again, small things that don't really detract from your stay.
What I found to be most disappointing was the strict check in policy. We arrived to the beach earlier than expected (around 1pm). Check in time was listed at 3pm. We were given no accommodation whatsoever and there was no option to leave our bags anywhere. It wasn't exactly the warm welcome one expects from an Airbnb host.
Overall, we had a great time and I would stay again.
The suite is fantastic. The location couldn't be any better. Michael is a great host who replies any questions timely. His team is responsive as well. Highly recommended!
Best. Vacation. Ever. This was my first time using airbnb. I was planning a bachelorette party for my bestie and six other hotties. The pix do not lie! Walking in to a gorgeous HUGE very stylish living room with chandeliers and and an ocean view was like having the bachelorette's dream party come true! There was more than enough room for everyone with not only three large beds in the bedrooms, but a gigantic couch and two couches that can also be used for beds in the living room. Most nights we didn't even sleep in the rooms and just crashed on the couches (or should I say during the day, since we didn't sleep much at night). The showers were waterfall type, and the entire apartment was modern and very chic. The host was perfect! He gave us excellent advice regarding the food, places to visit, how to plan our vacay, and things to do. He was VERY quick to respond with things we needed, was always available through text or a phone call, and just an overall great and fun person. The neighborhood was the best! We stayed while a street festival was occurring and Ocean Drive was closed down to traffic. We were able to walk the culturally driven streets and experience a real south beach adventure. Steps away from several different and delicious restaurants, eating always included a show. After waking up in the afternoon (or evening!) crashing or walking on the beach was always relaxing and just right across from our place. All the girls loved the place and it definitely helped make this party epic.
Prime location in the heart of sobe as described. Upon walk in you will be amazed. Me and my amigos hashtagged it the White House while we were there!!!
Michael was an amazing host and his staff stood up to the challenge as well. The property was exactly as expected from the pictures and turned out to be even more beautiful in person. The location was perfect and all my expectations were met, sometimes even exceeded. I would highly recommend this host and definitely plan to work with him in the future. Thanks again for everything Michael.
