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.
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 me.
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. Please not Cigarettes. Medical cannabis is okey :)
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!
Oscar was an excellent host! He was very welcoming and walked us up to the aparmtnent upon arrival to show us around. He quickly answered any questions we had as well. We drove from Chicago and didn't want to have to pay a daily parking rate so Oscar was able to get a parking pass for us. Very conveniently located near the beach and restaurants. Plenty of things to do. The apartment was very clean and had any necessities we might've needed in case we had forgotten anything. Oscar was great and we couldn't have asked for a better location. Great experience!
Excelente alojamiento.. ideal para 3-4 personas.. Muy completo, muy buena ubicación.. Oscar fue muy amable y dispuesto a ayudar en lo que necesitabamos.. Sin dudas cuando vuelva a Miami volveré a alquilar este departamento
This was an amazing experience! Oscar is so down to earth, friendly and helpful! The location is perfect!! You can easily walk around the beach area comfortably as you are in the prime area for nightlife. The apartment was well maintained and comfortable... I absolutely loved it!! Already planning my next weekend getaway at the beach!
Oscar made us feel VERY welcome. He waited at his apartment for us to arrive, and gave us all the information we needed about the place. He was very nice.
Oscar's place was awesome! He was so friendly and let us check in early and then check out late too! We met him outside of the place which is really easy to find, he lugged our suitcases up the stairs for us and then gave us a quick run down of the place. The apartment is plenty spacious (we had friends over for drinks and they all fit comfortably) and the beds are quite comfortable. It's a very clean place and stays nice and quiet since it doesn't face the street. Plus you really can't beat the location -- 2 blocks to the beach, Walgreen across the street, restaurants and bars everywhere -- literally perfect! Thanks so much, Oscar!
Oscar was excellent! He was on time to meet me at the agreed upon time and location, he showed me the place and was friendly and accommodating.
The apartment is great, it was really really clean and spacious with a full kitchen. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. I was so happy with how clean the place was and there was a washer/dryer in the unit. The building was very quiet at night also which is great given that it is in a busy location!
You really cannot beat this location, one block from the ocean and with restaurants and bars right within one or two blocks it is excellent.
On the day I was leaving Oscar again was accommodating and made everything so easy.
Oscar was an amazing host! The apartment had everything we needed- from umbrellas to chairs, to a wine opener to extra beach towels. I felt completely at home from the first night to the last.
The apartment was super close to the beach (about a 10-minute walk) as well as close to ample bars, restaurants, shopping and night life. It was in an absolute ideal location!
On top of that, Oscar was such a nice guy and responded right away to any questions we had. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here and I definitely plan on coming back!

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
