Simon's place was great and PERFECT location. So close to Lincoln Road and the Beach. It's also about 6 blocks from Whole Foods--which is great. I didn't need to rent a car because everything including the beach was in walking distance. The beach is about a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute taxi ride. Taxis we're always available in front of the apartment or on Alton Street which is just the street behind the apartment building. Simon was super easy to communicate with and responded right away. The apartment has a sleek, modern and practical feel. I would definitely recommend it!
I had a great experience renting from Simon. The apartment was exactly as described and shown in the photos, and Simon always available and communicative before, during, and after my stay. The apartment is in a great location with Lincoln Rd mall shops/restaurants nearby, auto rental (Hertz) very close, plenty of places to get coffee in the morning, good social options at night, etc. Access to the building/apartment is very fast and easy and the apartment faces out onto a pool. I would definitely recommend his rental unit to anyone looking for a one-bedroom, centrally located apartment in Miami Beach and would happily rent from Simon again.
Simon's apartment is fun and funky and is a perfect spot for exploring South Beach. It's right in the middle of it all, but is surprisingly quiet indoors- no city noise and a good night's sleep on the comfy bed. Simon is very helpful and thorough and gave me all the help and info I needed to make my stay easy and fun. You can walk to everything (could even skip having a car altogether): 100s of restaurants, the beach, bars, clubs, shopping, as well as practical services like buses, banks, groceries, etc. are all walking distance. Lincoln Road Mall, Espanola Way are both a quick walk and tons of fun. Highly recommended!
We booked last minute and the studio is exactly as pictured on the profile. It is a very modern unit with all the basic essentials. The pool was under construction and unfortunately Simon was unaware prior to our arrival. Parking is limited to residents so that was difficult to navigate. There is a $80 cleaning fee that he will waive if you clean yourself but I was unaware of this until after I booked since it is not listed on the profile. Simon was available at all times for questions or concerns throughout our stay. I would certainly stay again!
Thanks Kate for the review!
Unfortunately parking in South Beach can be a nightmare particularly during long weekends and special events. Which was the case during Kate's visit. I do offer limited number of residential parking permits on a first come first serve basis. I was able to provide one pass for each night of Kate's stay, but because she was to arrive only a few hours after confirming the booking, I was not able to accommodate her second car. There are several parking garages nearby as an alternative option.
I am happy to report that as of Feb 18/2014, the renovation of the pool has been completed and it is now open for guests to enjoy.
We stayed at Simon's place for nine nights in February, and had a great experience. The apartment is very modern and clean. The kitchen was not super well equipped during our stay, besides that the flat offers everything you need. Simon was kind enough to help us with parking permits for a small fee. We highly recommend others staying at Simon's place.
Me and my husband had a pleasant stay at Simon’s place. The apartment was close to the Lincoln Road and many restaurants, bars, cinema etc. We also walked to the beach, which was approx. 20 walking mins. The apartment is exactly as on the pictures, very modern and neat, unfortunately they did some construction work on the pool, so we were not able to use it. Simon was not around but did reply really fast to our questions. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
This was my first time using airbnb. Naturally, I questioned staying the "normal" path and staying with a hotel. But, i couldn't been more pleased with this choice. Totally, recommend Simon's modern and boutique-y studio. Its spacious for 2 person but no more. I was solo and worked nicely for me.
Some prefer the beach hotels and party scene. That's cool. Other's want North Beach. Depends on what you want. However, IMO, this is an "A" location. Especially, if you're tired of the Collins Avenue hotels. Washer and Dryer a definite ++. Walking distance to Lincoln Road and close to a few Deco bike locations. Communication was very good. Please if you stay here, adhere to the simple rules and keep the place clean as if its yours and we'll be able to enjoy this little gem in So. Beach. Thanks!
My partner and I stayed at Simon's apt Dec 28 - Jan 1. Simon was very good about communicating with us to set expectations for the pickup of keys, parking needs, etc. The apt was newly renovated and very clean, comfortable for two, efficiency kitchen for drinks or small meals, nice bed, bathroom and living room. The A/C worked very well and internet was fast. We had a great time and the location was 2 blocks from west side of Lincoln (shopping, restaurants, etc.) so there was a lot to do. We will stay here again when in the South Beach area!
My best friend and I stayed here for three nights. The apartment is just right for 2-3 people. It's equipped with a beautiful couch, a flat screen TV, a queen size bed and a washer/dryer. The building complex is very nice and modern with a small pool in the inner terrace/court. Parking can be a challenge as you can only park on the street and need to request visitor parking passes from Simon ahead of time. The passes are $5 USD per day. That being said, there's a couple parking garages in the area, so you can always pay a little more and park at a garage. The location is excellent - a 5 minute walk from all the shops and restaurants on Lincoln Road. There's a pharmacy, liquor store and Starbucks just a block away. South beach/Ocean drive is about a 15-20 minute walk. Simon was an excellent host. We had issues with the door handle, and he did everything possible to address the situation quickly. I would definitely stay at Simon's apartment next time I'm in Miami.
Simon, was great at communicating. Very prompt and easy to work with. This apartment is in a prime location in South beach. Very close to lincoln road shops and restaurants. The pictures cannot do the apartment justice. Its truly stunning space. Just recently remodeled and very modern. The floors are a very beautiful faux bois tile. This apartment is perfect for Two and the pool is lovely. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a lil get away. In addition we had such a nice time we met some of the neighbors and they were extremely welcoming and friendly.
