The Space

Stay in your own PRIVATE efficiency apt with BEACH ACCESS!!!! Please note that there are no frills in this older non-luxurious Art Deco building/small apt. It has carpeted hallways and may not be ideal for people with strong allergies as the hallway carpet may have a musty smell at times, but you cannot beat the AMAZING LOCATION and price (the Savoy Hotel is one block away and is $200+ a night without taxes). This fully stocked and lovely oceanfront apt is located on Ocean Drive.

Right now the building is under renovation, there is scaffolding, dust and construction work at the building. Please do not book if you feel this will hinder your trip.

Cross roads: On Ocean Drive (the beach side) between 3rd Street and 4th Street. In what we call 'SoFi' (south of fifth) in a historical Art Deco building. This is an AMAZING location!

Enjoy the country's most beautiful beaches at your doorstep (plus you are located at the local's beach spot). SoFi will make you feel like a local.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Had an amazing stay here the Marilyn room was so cute and perfect for me and my two girlfriends! Everything is walking distance, the pool and beach are literally your backyard, and Dante was an amazing host when we got there he gave is a tour and be even drove us to the airport for a cheap fair! Totally recommend this place if you don't want to spend a lot of money.

  • We had a great time!! The apartment is not only super comfortable but extremely well located!!! We're really hoping we can make it next year!!!! Thanks Dante and Cindy, you are great!!!

  • This small apartment located in the best street in miami beach is just perfect for those looking for a clean place with good accommodation and the hottest point of the beach, Ocean Drive. It is close to all the best restaurants and clubs.
    Both Cindy and his father Dante always seek to leave their guests comfortable and feeling at home.
    I highly recommend it!

    Thank you so much;)

  • The location is excellent, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom is good. There are kitchen utensils, refrigerator, cabinets. It's a place that I would like to go back.

    March 2014
  • This place has an awesome location. The beach is right behind your backyard!
    The room is in a secured building, and is very clean. It is on Ocean drive, which means it is close to beach, to restaurants, to stores, and to almost everything.

    The only problem i have is parking. I had a car with me, so it is extremely difficult to find a parking spot. And the city parking symbols and instructions are a little confusing if you are not local. But if you dont have a car, you can get a rental bike or scooter everywhere!

    Also you need to be careful when eat out. Some restaurants offer starters, dishes, or desserts off the menu. You must ask for the price. If you don't, they will charge you more! This is personal experience!

    Overall, the place itself is wonderful! We will come back definitely!

    March 2014
  • We had a great time in South Beach! thank you! Dante was very kind to show us everything and very flexible for the checkin-checkout times. The Apt was in a perfect position, 2 min from the beach and 2 min from the Ocean Drive nightlife. Highly recommended!

    March 2014
  • Great apartment and very comfortable. It is located very close to the beach. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to be right in the midst of the busy SoBe scene, but still looking to have a private sanctuary to come back to. The rental was exactly what I expected, and Cindy, Rutger, & Dante were great hosts.

    March 2014
  • Cindy and Dante were very kind and helpful. We had late check and Dante met us and gave a tour of the house. Everything lived up to the photos, but in reality it turned out a little smaller than I expected, for a maximum of two people. All my comments on housing have not gone unnoticed, Dante tried to resolve all. Unfortunately, the apartment was a smell of gas, of which failed to get rid of. Stay at this was my mistake, in the future I would not stay there, but fits the description.

  • Great host! Perfect location!
    Decided on a whim to spend a night in Miami, on such short notice booked this spot and within minutes she replied and accepted our request. We met with Cindy's dad (Dante), we was so sweet and full of useful information. Tons of restaurants and right on the beach. I would book this place again in a heart beat. Thanks again for such a great stay. :-)

    February 2014
  • Great location , steps to beach and restaurants. Easy check in and out. Would come back again!!
