My host was absolutely wonderful!
The place provided beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrellas, a boogie board, you name it they had it! Dishes, silverware. There was even a caddy in the shower with soap and shampoo.
The host also welcomed me with recommendation on places to eat! AND LET ME TELL YOU! EVERY single place was amazing! The pear pasta was absolutely the best thing I've ever eaten in my entire life!
The beach is just steps away. There is a nice pool. I will definitely be coming back here.
Exactly what I signed up for. Had everything that was in the description. The surrounding complex is a bit old but the unit itself is great. The host was excellent. He was very accommodating and was helpful.
El anfitrión fue muy simpático, nos hizo sentir bienvenidas enseguida. Todo estuvo muy limpio h las reglas de la casa estaban muy claras.
This rental had everything to make our beach front vacation perfect. The hosts were very attentive, we even had an earlier check in than expected. The building had a private pool and was steps away from the beach. The apartment is small but perfect for two people; it was perfect for my son and I. The host was kind enough to even bring a gift for my 5 year old son! Great location and good Airbnb experience!
The beach bum amigos were fantastic hosts! Dante met us on time once we got to the property and was so gracious to show us around the building and the amenities. Rutger was quick to respond to any questions and/or comments. The apartment was in the perfect location, quiet, and my husband and I felt safe. There was construction going on, but it didn't retract from our amazing stay! We would definitely stay at one of the beach bum amigos rentals again. Thanks for a great experience!
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.
