Interaction with Guests
My quests should text me or call me if they need information about something or need something. I will do my best to help...
South Beach is world famous as a party playground for the rich and famous. South Beach (aka SoBe) is on Miami beach, a barrier island connected to Miami proper by the MacArthur causeway bridge.
The busiest part of the beach is from Lummus park (5th street, the southern end) through to Collins park (at 21st street). The beach is wide and made up of whitish sand, which can be a little coarse and hard on the feet in places. The beach faces the Atlantic ocean, so strong rip currents can make swimming dangerous - be sure to swim under the watchful eye of a lifeguard perched up on one of the eye-catching Art Deco lifeguard towers.
Off the beach, take a leisurely stroll along Ocean Drive, which is lined with colorful historic Art Deco buildings, every photographer's dream. Stylish hotels now occupy the iconic buildings - most have cool bars and trendy cafés, which front the sidewalk. Behind Ocean Drive you'll find chic boutiques, minimalist art-galleries, upmarket restaurants, some buzzing clubs.
The best way to get around in Sobe is by walking... !.Isn't it great.! however, you can rent bike, scooter, taxi, bus, tour buses and segue...
Other Things to Note
There is not TV in the apartment. I'm attempting to put a TV in the place. But from my own experience I think it is better not to have a TV next to you on your vacation. Not having one keeps you out exploring the city... I want my guests to enjoying their vacation as much they can. However, I may have a TV available upon request. There is a Laptop in the apartment for my guests to use it so they can surf in the webs and check their e-mail..
I am a very accommodating and always try and help my guests where ever possible. Normal check in anytime between 4pm -9pm. I will try and accommodate earlier check ins prior to 4pm if the condo is available. My apartment IS NOT a five star hotel, it is not perfect. There is NOT a reception counter, please try it show up in a reasonable hours. I will have to charge a fee if you arrive late a night. The checkin is at 4:00 p.m. between 9:00 pm to 12:00 pm there is fee $25
The most important thing is that you enjoy your vacation. I try not to have rules and literally leave our guests in peace so that you can get the most out of your holiday. I am nonetheless a phone call or text away when ever you need us.
While I do what I can to avoid rules unfortunately with so many guests passing through there are inevitably situations which I try and avoid. This list is one way for me to try and avoid issues by pre-empting something before it happens!
Smoking: I do not allow smoking in the property. This is something I am very strict about as many guests now refuse to occupy a property which smells of smoke. In the unlikely event that there is smoking the guest will automatically have a penalty of $100. This is without exception.
Lock out charge. I do not charge if you find yourself locked out during daytime hours. Between 11pm and 8am there will be a $50 fee. Lost keys are charged at $50.
Noise: I want to create a community where everyone is able to have full enjoyment of the property. Enjoy and have fun but please be considerate to your neighbors. Also please keep noise is kept to a minimum after 11pm until 8am. I have no intention of policing noise as it leaves many unhappy clients. Nonetheless in the most extreme cases where I become involved I will implement a penalty system where the enjoyment of others is continuously and unbearably effected.
My only intention is for you to enjoy!
Todo estuvo bien y de acuerdo a lo acordado. Óscar es muy buena onda y el depto esta muy bien ubicado.
Oscar was great- very quick to reply and answered all our questions.
Pros: the location is awesome, host is supportive throughout and the apartment has lots of useful amenities. It is also very good value for money.
Cons: there were small roaches (though this is common in Miami) and the shower was temperamental with hot/cold.
I would definitely stay again!
Oscar was a great host. As this was our first time using Air BNB he made our experience great. Had a great location, and even had some beach supplies ready for us to use. Would definitely recommend and use again.
This place is truly in the heart of Miami beach. Would definitely stay again.
Hi we had lovely time in Miami Beach, the appartment was exactly as described, we liked it, it is really perfectly located, 2 minutes from the beach, 1 minute from the restaurants/party area yet quiet. We had easy access to the apartment - Oscar was nice and responsive.
This place was really in the heart of Miami! The beach was close by and the restaurants are nearby also. Unfortunately, the overall stay was not a pleasant experience. The wifi did not work here and it had roaches! Not one roach but multiple roaches! I am confused because all of the great reviews I see but after staying here I cannot agree. Be prepared for parking as well. It is $1.75 an hour each place you go. The agreement mentioned check-in 4pm until 8pm but the host was not available to greet me. Instead, the keys were left and he never met me face to face. I would love to come back to Miami but I would rather stay in a hotel.
Oscar var väldigt trevlig och hjälpsam. Vi hade svårt att hitta parkering så han hoppade in i vår bil och körde oss till ett parkeringshus. Lägenheten är väldigt fräsch och modern. Stora fina ljusa rum. Även om den ligger väldigt centralt, så var det ganska lugnt ändå. Superbra placering i Miami beach. Nära till allting. Vi rekommenderar denna lägenheten till alla och vill själva bo här igen!

About the Host, Oscar F.
Hi I look forward to meeting you!
A little bit about myself and my home:
I am Physical Therapist, Massage Therapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist also I'm a License Florida Notary Public and a Real Estate Agent. I've been living in Miami Beach since 1995...People who meet me usually take note of my love of helping people. All my family and friends know I am the "go to" if they are in a jam, need advice or if the just need to hang out and have a good time.
I used my extensive knowledge of Miami Beach to find a home in the most perfect location for all travelers. Once I found the perfect location I then focused my attention to providing a splendid stay. I panted every room, brought simple beautiful furniture, plants, paintings and so much more. The apartment is within walking distance of everything you will NOT need a car here. My mission is to provide all of my wonderful guests with a home experience while still staying. I always strive for perfection and I constantly look for ways of improving my home for my guests.
I know everything SOBE so if you have any questions ask away! If I don't know I will google it. :) I love working out, running, biking, swimming, yoga and playing sports.
What helps me the most with hosting is my love for people. Having the ability to provide my guests with a amazing stay in SOBE is my #1 goal
