About this listing

Cool 1-bedroom apartment in the heart of South Beach. Walkable to everything. Close to Lincoln Road and only 3 blocks from the beach. The gated, shaded, garden-style building is super relaxed and makes a perfect retreat from all the action.

The space

This stylish 1-bedroom 1-bathroom apartment (720 square feet) with a full kitchen is in a quiet, gated private condo building. The apartment comfortably accomodates up to three people: the living room sofa folds flat into a bed (basically a high-end futon) and we stock extra linens for it. The apartment is furnished with a modern touch, so you'll know you're in always-trendy South Beach.

Guest access

Guests have access to outdoor lounge chairs in the building's small cloistered courtyard. Perfect place for an at-home drinky.

Interaction with guests

The apartment door has an electronic lock that uses a keypad instead of a key. (Once you book, the code will be updated to a new one created just for you.) There is thus no need to meet up for a key exchange. That said, the Property Manager is always available via mobile phone should any issues arise during your stay.

Other things to note

In addition to the amenities noted above, the apartment also includes a Bluetooth speaker as well as a Nespresso machine that we stock with a full box of coffee pods prior to your arrival.

We also stock an iron, ironing board, and hair dryer.

The building has no dedicated parking spaces. But there is a Miami Beach parking garage less than two blocks away: 12th Street & Drexel Avenue. The facility is available 24 hours a day.

This was my 2nd time staying at this condo and once again everything was great. Check-in/check-out process is easy since both the outside gate and the main door is controlled by electronic lock (no need to carry a key). The location of the condo is perfect – close to beaches, shopping, restaurants and bars. I had no issues during my stay and I am looking forward to my next trip to Miami Beach and staying at this place. I highly recommend it.

This was our first Airbnb experience and it was perfect! Ra'Ed's place is in an excellent location to easily walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping, yet it was very quiet at night for sleeping. The accommodations are exactly as described, comfortable and immaculate! We had a wonderful time...Thanks

How do you spell 'convenient'? Close to the beach, Lincoln Street Mall, Espanola Way, and equipped with lawn chairs and beach umbrella, fully stocked kitchen, lush patio at your disposal... all the ingredients for a great holiday!

Perfect location 3 blocks from the beach. We walked the entire time and everything was very close by.

Communication with David was timely and easy and the apartment is exactly as depicted. This apt is a great little oasis in a cozy neighborhood away from the loud hotels and crazy traffic. The restaurant options nearby are great and you are only a ten minute walk from the beach. I felt like "a local" after the first day. Also, I used Uber to get to destinations further away. Pick-up was very easy from the apt complex, and I alwawyas enjoyed coming 'back home' to the lovely pied-a-terre. I highly recommend it and would absolutely return and stay at David's place again!

"The Retreat" was the perfect get away for our Thanksgiving week in South Beach. Couldn't have been more perfectly located within walking distance of the beach (14th street entrance), shops, and restaurants. Walk north or south along the beach and park path for amazing views. The neighborhood is somehow both peaceful and right in the middle of everything. The green garden area behind the front provides the perfect place for lounging and reading with a cup of coffee. Some nearby wonderful places to eat: La Sandwicherie, Sushi Song, Osteria del Teatro, Poseidon, Rosa Mexicano. Easy access to amenities (Whole Foods/Publix an easy stroll). David kindly includes back-packable beach chairs and beach towels. Queen bed was wonderful and kitchen nicely equipped with delicious Nespresso coffee. David was also incredible accommodating with our check in and check out. Very grateful for a wonderful time away! Thank you to Host David and the restorative "Retreat!"

The apartment is in a convenient location-close to everything but in a quiet mellow street. It's clean and the perfect size for a couple on a weekend getaway. Love the garden set up as well, it's like having a second living room. Our host David was very gracious, helpful and responsive to all our inquiries. We will definitely stay here again the next time we're back in Miami.

Hello! My day job is interior design, but I also manage my friend's South Beach condo. I've lived in downtown Miami with my partner David since 2010.
