The location of the apartment was wonderful! The the view out of the window is much better in person! The beach access was so convenient and we did not have trouble parking on 73rd. The building is lovely and the apartment is well kept! It was a perfect retreat for my Husband and I as well as a fairly central location to go out into different parts of Miami! Although, we did not really eat in the area, Dough had some great suggestions and was super helpful with everything! We would definitely stay again!
Nous avons été chez Doug début août 2015 pour 5 nuits. Nous avons vécu un super séjour grâce à son appartement parfaitement situé (plage au pied de l'immeuble) et bien équipé. Nous n'avons pas rencontré Doug, toutefois tout s'est très bien passé et il a été joignable durant tout notre séjour. Très serviable et agréable, nous avons été très satisfait par notre hôte. Il n'y avait pas le wifi mais Doug nous a donné un code d'accès et cela nous a bien aidé. Transats et parasols fournis, bien utiles à Miami beach. Nous recommandons véritablement le logement de Doug et si cela été possible, nous reviendrions avec grand plaisir.
Overall, our experience was a wonderful one. Even though we didn't get a chance to meet Doug, he was very communicative and responded immediately to any questions that I had. The location of his apartment was right on the beach and in walking distance to many great restaurants! His apartment was exactly like the pictures and was all we needed to make our stay great!
Clean space that provides everything that you might need amenity-wise. Though we did not meet Doug face to face, he was very responsive and a good host! Easy access to the beach is a definite perk.
The apartment was right on the beach in a quiet area. We rented a car which was really helpful. We were able to get to downtown Miami and Southbeach easily.
The apartment was just as described. It was clean and well-equipped with extra towels, beach chairs and kitchen utensils.
Doug was a great and generous host!
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.

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.
