About this listing
A bright large 1 bedroom 1min from Washington Avenue, 2 blocks from the beach.
The living room is bright and spacious. You will love the furniture and the open kitchen.
The size of the apartment is more than enough to built 2 bedrooms, but what we like is space. A bright 1br/1ba at the heart of Sobe, 1 block from the beach.

Will was very helpful and answered all the question we asked him in a timely manner. We didn't get off to the best start as the first place we booked became unavailable and Will move us in to this place. This place has an awful smell to it we could quite put our finger on it, also when showering the bath fills up to ankle deep as the water doesn't run away quick enough or the pipe is blocked, we also had to fix the cold water tap in the ensuite as it was loose and didn't turn on, the place also was in need of a good clean.

At 10:45pm the night before check-in, I was notified by Will that the apartment would not be ready due to some maintenance issues and that he would offer us another "very nice" apartment in SoBe in a great location that was "slightly smaller" with a refund of $214 or he would offer us a full refund. Being that it was only a few hours before our departure, we had no choice but to accept the apartment. When we arrived to the apartment, to our dismay, it was a rat hole. It had dirty walls, mildewed showers, disgusting floors, and it was tiny, somewhere that would not be conducive to staying for vacation purposes. It may conducive if you were homeless and were seeking any type of shelter. I contacted the number I was given to me for any problems with the apartment and told them that I would not be staying there. After a few hours, I was met by one of Will's reps and he told us that we could stay at the original apartment we booked, but the problem was every time we showered, the neighbors downstairs would get a leak in their living room. We were told to keep our showers to the short side and we complied. The original apartment we booked was great. Everything that we expected it to be. Unfortunately during this time, when I reached out to Will about the issues we were having, I NEVER got a response back. He has completely ignored me since he told me that we would have to stay in a different apartment. His customer service skills are non-existent. His rep Xavier was a life saver though. The day of check out, I realized I left my keys in the apartment while I was at the airport. He went over to the apartment and sent my keys to me via an uber I requested. Definitely great customer service, wish I could say the same for Will. I am STILL waiting on a response from him. I gather he will never respond.
The place is pleasant and well located, it had all the amenities we needed. It was perfect for two couples. Minutes to Lincoln road and a short walk to the beaches.
We had to get ear plugs to sleep as the place is located on the first floor and noise from the street can be disturbing.
We only had a little issue with ants being everywhere in the kitchen and one of the bedrooms also had them + one of the toilets kept breaking. However it didn't bother us too much as we were out most of the day.
Overall this is a cool place to stay.

About the Host, Will
Every detail matters! I like to take care personally of my guests by providing the best accommodations. I used professional contractors to fix and clean my apartment.
Also I will be more than happy to advise you on where to go in Miami and around.
Hope to meet you soon!
