Amazing location, in south beach! 1bed/1bath close to the ocean and shops! pets allowed. Condo approval is needed before move in
the check in after 11 pm costs 60 $ more
As soon as we arrived we noticed that the apartment was not located where it’s shown on the Airbnb map. The pin that shows where the apartment is located is on Ocean Dr. and 14th street, right in front to the beach. But the apartment was located at 15th street, between Meridian Avenue and Jefferson Street, which is 7 blocks away from the location of the pin in the map. This was very inconvenient since we were traveling with a toddler and without stroller. But for someone who is not traveling with kids, and is not bothered by walking 7 blocks to go to beach, the location is very good, very close to Espaniola Way and Lincoln Road.
The apartment was nice and clean (except that the kitchen trash bin was full of garbage), and looks exactly like the pictures. There were not enough kitchen utensils, only 2 bath towels were provided during our entire stay (for 2 adults and 1 kid), and only half roll of toilet paper.
When we arrived at the apartment, nobody was there to greet us. The apartment door was unlocked, with keys on the table and no instructions about anything. Next day I tried to contact Dany with some questions and comments about the apartment, by mail (though Airbnb) and phone (leaving a message), with no response. We never met our host and only heard from him, by (website hidden), the last day, saying that we have to check out at 10 am. We sent him a response asking to check-out later, and then, Paolo (who said he was the owner of the apartment) called me screaming and shouting at me, threatening us with the police if we were not gone by 10 am. We had to leave in a rush, with a scared kid, after being tricked with the apartment’s location, and receiving no response and instructions during our whole stay.
We used Airbnb several times, and never had such a bad experience.
We had a great stay here. The location is perfect, within walking distance of everything we wanted/needed. The place is clean and looks just like the pictures. There was some confusion about check in/out times so I recommend checking with the host in advance. That said, he was accommodating and responsive. Would definitely recommend for a basic, no frills beach house!
Paolo aparment is really nice. Only two blocks from Lincoln Road very safe to walk at any hour. The aparment has a TV witch was great. I higly recomend it walking distance from all the nightlife in MIA
Paolo's place was in a great location - easy access to shopping, groceries, restaurants and in a quieter neighborhood. We had no issues with anyone or anything being loud, which we really appreciated, as we were tired after long days outside. Paolo was quick to respond to our reservation and during our stay when we had a question or two, which was also very helpful. Overall it was a decent experience. Some challenges: There was one sheet on the bed for us to use at night (we were there for 3 nights) and only one very small (didn't cover the whole bed), thin fleece blanket for us to use to cover us while we slept. We didn't have the A/C on much of the time because we had nothing to cover up with and it was just a little odd. The cleanliness wasn't great but wasn't horrible - just looks like it could be scrubbed and cleaned up better and with a little more attention.
Overall - easy place to stay in convenient location but lacking in some important and basic things.
Perfect experience. Host was responsive and accommodating. The apt was clean, in good location, and had everything I needed. Exactly the same as the pictures.
The apartament offered by Paolo was my first experience using Airbnb. The location is great highligth of The property: near of Lincoln st and Washington Av, shows and restaurants and a few blocks from The beach. We were greeted by Paolo's son, Filippo, who lives upstairs. He was very attentive and placed himself at our disposal. I just have a few considerations: thicker curtains to ensure privacy, more cooking utensils and a tv.
In Miami for business, Paolo's place was perfect. Small, but adequate. Clean, well kept. Simple, stylish decor. Within walking distance of everywhere I needed to be, no need for a car. Paolo and family were helpful, available, and easy to communicate with. Recommended.
