We enjoyed our stay at Red's condo during the holidays! The apartment was just like it was depicted in the pictures and was very clean. Also, you cannot beat the location. We were on the beach in minutes and it was an easy walk to nearby shops and the grocery store. If you want a comfortable apartment right on the beach, look no further.
The apartment's location is great! The beach is fantastic and the pool really worked for us. The apartment is functional and it was clean. There are lots of restaurants in the area and shopping. you could get around without a car but we highly recommend renting.
The main problem we had is that there are roaches. We found them from day 1 until we checked out.
The owner was on top of it and sent a terminator but didn't help much; must be a building issue.
The wifi worked well.
We loved the apartment- it was exactly as Red described. Fantastic views of the ocean as well as downtown Miami from apt balcony.
The building staff were friendly and helpful.
The condo was pretty much as advertised, and I had no issues with the building or logistics. There was more street noise than I had hoped when I was on the patio or when the doors were open. This is probably the case with all condos that don't face the beach directly. All the Surfside city action (restaurants, stores) was about a 3 block walk, but it was safe and pretty straightforward to get there. The beaches are nice around the building, so if you like walking there are plenty of trails and paths. Overall, very nice relaxing time in Red's condo.

Travel is fun and exciting but can be hard on the wallet. It doesn't have to be that way. Email if you have questions, especially if your requested dates are in the near term and I will do my best to work with you!
Having spent more time than I care to remember in sterile, uninviting hotel rooms, I was initially attracted to vacation rentals as refreshing, and often more affordable, alternatives. What I found were the same white walls and beige furniture or, even worse, cluttered rooms and Aunt Edna's donated dilapidated couch in the living room. Well, welcome to something different. Take a break from your busy schedule by relaxing in clean, inviting rental that that feels enough like home that you're immediately comfortable while being so special you'll look forward to your return. Many of my guests have been back 2 or 3 times, and some have found themselves venturing across the country to check out another Red Hot Vacation Rental.
My places are located in Chicago, Miami Beach and San Francisco. I've lived in all 3 cities and am happy to suggest hidden local gems or recommend the best nearby dry cleaner.
