Great stay at Doug's place. Doug is easy to work with, and communicates with you very effectively. He made us feel very comfortable. Although we didn't meet him, he made sure to follow up with us about certain things. Even accommodated our Check-in/Check-out times since our flights were both late night flights.
The apartment is exactly as described on this site, and the pictures are exactly how the apartment is set up. It has a mini-fridge for storing small boxes of food (left-overs) and your bottles of waters. It has a working AC (which you will definitely need during summer time). The bed was very comfortable, and all the linens and towels smelled clean. The whole apartment felt very clean and well taken care of.
The location was perfect. Although parking can cost you a bit if you are thinking of spending lots of time in the area, it is about a dollar per hour which is not much. I don't think there is a limit of how long you can stay, and after 8pm (If I'm not mistaken) you can park for free until 8am. There are also ample parkings all areound the area; including lots of public parking lots. There are lots of restaurants, great beach, and a CVS and Walgreens right around the corner. You have everything you need within walking distance. He has no TV in the apartment which we didn't really mind since we spent very little time inside the apartment. The only other little issue was that our Sprint signal was really bad in all of Miami Beach, and although Doug tried to provide us with a WiFi, the signal was very weak. But this didn't really make a difference since we only needed it when looking for places to go online. Also, he has a couple of chairs and umbrellas, and a little cooler for you to take to the beach with you. Very thoughtful of Doug! :)
My wife and I loved staying at Doug's place and hope to make it back soon. Definitely recommend Doug's place for anyone looking to stay close to the beach in Miami Beach.
I recently stayed at Doug's apartment. It had everything I needed. The apartment was a bit smaller than I had originally thought it would be, but I also didn't need a lot of space. Doug had clean towels and linens available.
The apartment building itself smelled like cigarette smoke. Luckily it doesn't travel into the apartment.
Great location, the beach is so close! There are a few good restaurants near by.
Doug was kind enough to make some suggestions of places to go. Lou's beer garden was a great suggestion.
Overall I would stay at Doug's apartment again if I return to Miami.
Great host. Great location. Very comfortable place. Loved the decor. Perfect for a solo stay or with a significant location. The fact that coffee, towels, and linens are already there really helps! Doug was communicative and helpful. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for calm that's still close to action.
We stayed at Doug's apartment which was right off Collins. The location is amazing. Footsteps from the beach! Lots of wonderful places to dine nearby. Not too far from all the local destinations either. Very comfortable and just what we needed for a relaxing getaway! Doug wasn't there but he was available via text and he provided timely responses. We would definitely go back and rent his place again! Thanks Doug!
The description, which we've got from Doug before, was perfect and also we've got great pointers from Doug, regarding dinner, haning out, shops, etc. He answers very quick to our quesitons. The apartment was as in his representation at airbnb. Everthing was really clean and directly located to the bach. Had a great time there!
Doug's place is lovely and exactly as described. It's a great location for just hanging out on the beach and relaxing. Going into the center of Miami takes a very long time without a car, but staying in the Miami Beach neighborhood is nice too. The apartment was spotless and Doug was quite helpful. The only comment I have is that there are some heavy smokers on the same floor as Doug's apartment. If you are very sensitive to smoke, it may not be the best place for you, however, the air in the apartment was clean.
Doug is een attente verhuurder,je voelt je welkom.
Appartement is op een fantatiche plek,overkant van de straat bevindt zich het strand,alles wat je nodig acht is in buurt.
Appertement is okay alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig strandlaken koelbox etc,Miste wel een beetje een tv en Wiffi op de kamer.
Op het oog is het schoon maar eist wel iets meer aandacht.

About the Host, Doug
I live and work between Miami and Wilmington, NC. I can't be in both places at the same time... so I am willing to let travelers use my home when I am away.
I am trusting to a fault sometimes. Please take care of my home!!
I look forward to meeting you.
BTW, I feel more comfortable if you have a profile here on airbnb. It gives me some idea of who might be staying in my space.
