About This Listing
Designer art deco lighting and decorating puts you right in the feel of South Beach. Beach is across the street, and the heart of South Beach is a ten minute walk. Complementary kayak and paddle board use. Real privacy for two couples & room for 3rd.
THIS UNIT MUST BE SEEN!! designer decorated art deco South Beach 2 bedroom 2 bath, across the street from the beach, with wifi, satellite tv, flat screen tv.
This is a perfect condo for you if you want to be staying in a really cute place, with immediate beach access and firm comfortable beds. We have a new queen size sofa that opens up into a bed as comfortable as a regular bed [none of those metal springs]. There is also AMAZING privacy between the two bedrooms. They are on either side of the condo, with the living room in between, and there is even what looks to be a wall, but is a sliding door that closes off the back bedroom and back bathroom from the rest of the condo. You can even exit through your own door.
This condo IS NOT FOR YOU if you need a fancy building with a doorman, pool and a view. We have none of that. But we are a quaint building, across the street from the fancy Palm Hotel, on the first floor and the beach IS ACROSS THE STREET.
Now we are not against fancy. In fact, we spend a lot of time across the street at the Palm Hotel. Anyone is welcome to eat at their restaurants and more importantly to lounge at their poolside bar. As for the beach, we use the same beach as the Palm. You just need to bring your own chair, which we have in the condo.
There is a large pool, open to the public for just $10 per day with free parking that is just one mile from our condo. I swim there daily.
For sleeping, the master bedroom with attached private bath has a king bed. The other bedroom, all the way across the condo so there is lots of privacy, has a queen bed. It also has a day bed with another single pull out bed under it, so that room provides three separate beds [though it will be crowded to have all three in use at once] There is a sofa bed, queen size in the living room.
For ice cream enthusiasts, we have an electric ice cream maker
For coffee enthusiasts, we have a cappuccino machine and coffee grinder
PARKING: free street parking from 6 pm to 8 am

Interaction with Guests
You have your privacy but I am a phone call away
Our neighborhood has new fancy hotels, like the Edition a block away BUT also has wonderful little latino places for breakfast and lunch. You can kayak and paddleboard right there.
Amazing public transportation. Bus within one block takes you to airport and to south beach. Once in South Beach, the SOBE local is 25 cents to go anywhere in south beach.
Other Things to Note
The Red South Beach Hotel is next door, so a restaurant, bar and consierge which you can use is right there. They will even rent a car for you.
no smoking, no loud parties
Very nice place, close to the beach, very equiped and comfortable. Marla helped us and was close to us when we needed her. Thanks!
Marla was extremely helpful during the stay, often checking in on us to make sure everything was running smoothly. The apartment is just as shown in the photos. Very conveniently located apartment in Miami Beach. The host gave great advice on getting around and some good places to eat.
Appartment was amazing and Marla was really helpful and easy to reach every time we had a question. We would definetively stay again with her if we ever visit Miami again.
Had a great time at Marla's condo! Looked exactly like the pictures show. It is directly on Collins ave and about a 30 second walk to the beach. Marla was easily reached by phone and was very quick to respond to my emails. All in all, it was a great place to stay. Would definitely recommend.
L'appartamento è dotato di tutti i confort necessari. La posizione è discretamente comoda, comodo l'accesso alla spiaggia di fronte. I letti sono confortevoli. I punti negativi però ci sono: l'appartamento non è curato come in Italia o in generale in Europa. Le finiture fanno la differenza in negativo in questo senso, all'apparenza risulta arredato e rifinito male. Il punto più negativo secondo me è la visuale: non si riesce neanche a capire se fuori c'è soleggiato o no. Un bagno molto bello, l'altro molto meno. Qualche problema con internet risolto grazie a Marla.
In conclusione secondo me l'appartamento diventerebbe ottimo se venisse abbondantemente ristrutturato e rifinito. Così come il condominio intero (il portone d'ingresso centrale arrugginito è veramente brutto). Per quanto riguarda la pulizia direi appena sufficiente.
Great apartment, especially if you want to have a car during your stay in Miami Beach. Great host, allowed us for early check in and late check out. Definitely would rent again.
We had a fabulous time in Marla's flat and especially loved the neighborhood tucked between rowdy South Beach and the rowdy Fountainebleau. We had the beach to ourselves! The apartment was immaculate and perfectly equipped although rather dark, but the colorful and whimsical decor made up for the lack of sunlight, which is right outside the front door in abundance. We really enjoyed our week stay and hope to return next year. Two excellent restaurants: Indomania and Cantina 27 a few blocks south on Collins should not be missed! Thanks Marla!
