Good place, host was super nice. Room was beautiful and right next to the beach. Will totally stay here if I'm ever in Miami again.
Staying at the Bob Marley house was a great experience. Perfect location with beachfront access & a clean apartment. I'll definitely be staying here the next time I'm in South Beach.
Todo estuvo muy bien, el departamento esta ubicado exactamente donde lo menciona, sobre la playa, tiene los servicios que menciona, nos incluyó toallas de baño y playa, sillas, sombrillas y tabla para el mar, sólo bastaba con tomarlas y caminar por el pasillo a la playa. El anfitrión fue bastante atento y habla inglés y español, lo cual lo volvió más cómodo, yo fui con dos personas más y quizá estábamos en algún momento algo ajustados de espacio, pero no nos incomodó, lo recomiendo.
Rutger was a great and attentive host. He was there to great us outside the building and gave us a quick tour of the place. The room was as described and he even provided us with some extra items (beach chairs and umbrellas). The location was a great plus! Will definitely be booking with them if I ever head back to South Beach.
Great location. Easy seamless check in he was even able to accommodate us with a earlier check in time. Happy with our stay. The construction and lobby were an eyesore but we knew this ahead of time!
My girlfriend and I had a great stay. Everything went well. Rutger and Dante were really friendly and willing to help in any situation. The apartment was as described. We had everything we needed. The location of the apartment is perfect. Really just a one minute walk away from the beach and just a short walk to nice bars and restaurants on Ocean Drive. A bus station is on 5th Street on Washington Ave. Maybe 7 minutes away from the apt. To get to the airport take bus 150. The price per ticket is less than $3. Definitely the cheapest way to get to the airport.
We definitely recommend that place.
The Bob Marley room was great! We really loved being so close to the beach, and everything we needed for the beach (beach chairs, towels, aloe, sunscreen etc...) was provided! What a wonderful family welcome we received from Cindy, Dante and Rutger! They gave us at our and even sent us suggestions for restaurants in the area! (Stay away from the tourist traps, drinks are$25 each) Rutger and Cindy were very communicative about the entire process and let us know about the construction that was happening, so we were not surprised. Overall, a wonderful stay! Thank you!
