The place is closer to much of Miami Beach than many places on the island itself! Good public transport to Downtown and around Miami Beach. Getting around is very easy since everything is walkable, bikeable, or a small taxi fare. From MIA airport the taxi flat taxi rate is $32.00 that takes about 15 min. or take the '150 Airport Flyer' bus for $2.35. In only 40 minutes it will drop you off a few blocks from here. The 25-cent 'South Beach Local’ bus shuttles around the neighborhood with frequent stops. The city's brand new "Deco Bike" rental program has fun and cost effective mode of transportation around the beach with stations all over. A location is just 1 block away.
Many stylish and tasty restaurants of countless cuisines, cafes, weekend markets and a huge variety of boutique stores are all within easy walking distance, delivering the best of what this trendy and eclectic area of Miami Beach has to offer! Other full services are all within a few minutes walk, including several full supermarkets banks and drugstore/pharmacy - and if you must - there's a Starbucks, Einstein Bagels and other national and local brands nearby.

Luis and his partner Darryl were very nice and very helpful. The apartment was amazing and very clean. We had a parking place in front of the building and the location was perfect too.
It was a very nice stay and when we had questions Luis helped us immediately via internet. It caused no problem that we could not meet personally him. You can walk to the beach easily and you can rent a bike near the apartment.
The apartment is perfect if you want to visit South Beach. Design, and comfortable, we felt at home in Luis apartment. It is well equipped. The parking is very welcome. Many nice shops and restaurant closely located.
Unfortunately we did not meet Luis as he was away. But we spoke many times and he was always available. Very calm and nice.
Luis was a gracious host, he provided us with lots of information to make our stay comfortable. The apartment was wonderfully located, walking distance to Lincoln Road, Fresh Market and great neighborhood restaurants. We enjoyed the spacious apartment with its lovely arcitectural elements and contemporary designs. Having a parking space available was perfect, especially on the extremely busy Marathon weekend! We would highly recommend staying at Luis' apartment while visiting Miami Beach.
Beautiful place, amazing furnitures and design. Internal parking a big plus. Crystal clear instructions for any details and everything perfectly arranged. Great location close to all the good places in South Beach. Luis a great host, able to accomodate all our needs. Sad to leave, but we will be back
This unit was great! Very clean, modern, and comfortable. Luis was a great host and left very detailed instructions on how to navigate his home. The unit is close to Lincoln Mall and walking distance to the convention center. Compared to the nightly cost of hotels, this was a fantastic deal. I would definitely rent this unit whenever I travel to Miami Beach.
Luis was an exceptional host! The apartment is just as clean and pristine as it looks; the style and decor are Miami spot on! My beau and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location of the apartment was perfect. We walked everywhere, though not necessary as SoBe offers deco bikes, has rather decent public transportation and taxis are everywhere and cheap. The apartment had all the amenities we needed and more. Luis was very easy to communicate with, and was readily available to speak to. I highly recommend Luis as a host!
Hi, i highly recommend a stay at Luis' place. He was a great host for my first airbnb experience. His apartment is just perfectly located at south miami if you want to walk and visit, and his parking lot is great if you have a car and want to go north, everglades or south to the keys. The apartment was cleaned and is well optimized for two people with lots of space. Pool, beaches, organic supermarket nearby.
Je recommande fortement l appartement de Luis a south miami beach. Il est parfaitement situé pour vadrouiller à pieds avec piscines, plages et commerces à proximité. Son parking nous a été super utile pour bouger en voiture en dehors de miami. Son appart est très propre et extrêmement pratique. Nous y avons passé une superbe semaine.
I ended up extending my stay in Miami and so I booked the apartment for another 5 days. I wish I could have stayed longer. Everything was so close by and the apartment was really well stocked with good basics. I'm currently renting a different apartment (only because Luis' one wasn't available) and it doesn't even compare!
Thanks for everything!
Really loved this apartment, so much so that I extended my stay a few more days. Everything was sparkling clean and the host was super helpful in explaining everything and checking that everything was up to standard. Highly recommended.
Everything was great! We had a great time! Thanks
