Interaction with Guests
I will be present to check you in, or will make arrangements depending on my schedule and your arrival time. I also may pop in from time to time to make sure everything is ok or if there are any issues with the apartment. If you need me I'm just a call or message away.
This location is conveniently located very close to the beach and Ocean Drive, about a 5 minute walk, and just steps to restaurants, shops and nightlife on Washington. Multicultural neighborhood with a latin flare and people from all over the world. Both tourists and locals occupy the streets well into the night, as clubs don't close here till 5 am or even later!
Buses run conveniently on Washington Ave, just a block away. Ride anywhere to Downtown, Aventura Mall, Dolphin Mall or the airport for around $2.25. The South Beach Local will circle around the beach for just .25 cents and has free wifi. Decobike stations also located nearby for bicycle rental. Motorized scooters and segways are really popular on the beach and available for rental nearby. Parking is an additional $10 a night while passes are available. If they run out there is a nearby lot and garage on 7th and Washington.
Other Things to Note
This place is a perfect location for enjoying Miami; Nice & comfortable to sleep, close to the beach & clubs/bars, accessible by public transport, fridge, microwave, stove, everything you need for drinks and quick meals. Even without a car you will be able to see all that Miami has to offer. With a car you can drive to Key West or Orlando in just a few hours. My ideal guests are discreet, come to enjoy the city, go out, have fun and come home to rest. If this is you, you will be very happy staying here. Even on rainy days there's a movie theater and bowling alley nearby, catch a show in Downtown or even attend a Heat game if you're lucky! If you decide to stay in there's plenty of food delivery in the area 24 hrs and liquor delivery service.
I appreciate good communication from my guests. Please let me know when you plan to arrive, if you are driving or renting a car and will need parking arrangements, and most importantly how I can reach you. Will you have access to your phone or wifi? This way we can ensure a good experience for all. Also, be honest, about the nature of your trip and how many guests you expect. Remember this is not a hotel, this is like my home. Behave like my guest, do not say you are renting to anyone, and respect my home. Smoking and pets are not allowed. Keep noise reasonable specially at night. Thank you.
Vanessa's apartment was in a great location, just a few blocks from the beach and walking distance to everything in South Beach. We walked everywhere and never had to taxis which was great. The apartment is a little worn (in the bathroom mostly). However it was very clean, and Vanessa has done a great job of decorating it and making it feel homey and cute. The value for size, and location is great for South Beach. She didn't have any parking pass for us, but recommended a great and affordable option down the street. Vanessa didn't meet us to give us the keys, or show us around and just left the apartment open for us which we found kinda odd, but it worked out well in the end since we were extremely delayed arriving and she would have been waiting around for ages. We met her while checking out, and she was very nice and sweet. Would recommend this place for anyone wanting to stay near the action and save on accommodation costs!
Our experience staying at Vanessa's apartment was great! We just stayed one night and everything went smoothly. It was a comfortable stay!
Vanessa's place is the perfect beachside getaway. It's a 5 minute walk from the water and super close to a ton of cafes and great shops. So much better than any hotel you could get in the area. Vanessa is also quick to respond to texts and communication. Definitely take advantage of this great opportunity to kick back and relax in Miami.
Vanessa was very accommodating and the place was clean and convenient to the beach. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Vanessa gave us parking passes for $10 a day so we could park nearby. We loved our time here!!!
The location of this apartment is just perfect, close to the beach but still far enough from the main streets to be on a quiet street. The bed was big and comfortable. Vanessa was really flexible with the check-in/out times which helped us a lot! The apartment itself is definitely more rough around the edges than you can tell from the pictures, but it was all clean and very nicely decorated.
Vanessa was quick to respond and very kind. The condo was exactly as described and super close to everything you would need. She even had parking passes for us. Great hostess!
Vanessa was very communicative from the first day to the last. This is apartment is in a little neighborhood, away from the tourist stuff, but close enough to walk or catch a cab anywhere. She provides beach supplies, the room is equiped with all the necessities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this little apartment!
