Also a "Bahama Bed" in the living room (comfortably sleeps one adult).

MORE DETAILS: We've thought of everything to make your Miami Holiday perfect: combination entry to the unit (no waiting around for the one person who has the key); stereo, DVD player, baby pak-n-play, board games in case it rains, and a sun umbrella in case it shines! FREE garage parking (for 1 car), and complementary FREE valet parking. Never get locked out thanks to the keyless entry system.

THE BUILDING AMENITIES: The building has a workout room, pool, beach chairs, charcoal grills, vending machines and beach hammocks, as well as laundry machines on each floor.

LOCATION: Great beach path. Surfside's business district starts at 94th Street- just 3 blocks away. There you will find banks, Publix grocery store, Big Daddy's liquors, dry cleaners, office service center, a Post Office, and excellent restaurants (try Moroccan Nights). At 96th Street, you will find the world renown Bal Harbour Shops with several outstanding restaurants & outdoor cafes that boast the best people watching in town (Carpaccio and La Goule), a laidback Sega Fredo coffee cafe, a proper Tea Parlour, and some of the most expensive retail in the world--Gucci, Prada, Tiffany's, Cartier and dozens more--wonderful to browse while enjoying an ice cream or gelator. My place is 2 blocks to the Shul of Bal Harbour and 8 blocks to St. Joseph's Catholic Church. Water toys like jet skis can be rented, or you can take out a fishing charter or hop on a drift fishing boat, buy a kite a one of the area's largest and oldest kite vendors, or hit around of golf at the Par 3 Course just over Haulover Bridge at 101st Street. 20 minutes to South Beach (drive or grab the bus across the street); approximately 30 minutes car, cab or shuttle service ride to either Miami International or Ft. Lauderdale Airport.

CHARGES: Minimum stay of 4 Nights if your stay is between June - October 30 except Holiday and Special event weeks. November 2012 through May 2012 require 5 Nights stay for you to auto book!

Holiday weeks (including Xmas, New Years, President's Day, Passover, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day, Thanksgiving) and Weeks of major Miami events (such as Winter Music Conference, the Boat Show, the Super Bowl, Tennis Finals, etc.) have a minimum rental of 5 nights and will be charged a premium of $200 -500 per week.

Also, a $100 registration fee required by my building and a $200-400 Security Deposit is required. The Security Deposit and registration fee are payable directly to me two weeks prior to your arrival by ACH transfer or credit card (you will be charged all credit card fees of 3-4%).
The Security Deposit is $400 if your party is between the ages of 18-25 (kids with parents excepted). Security Deposit will be refunded, assuming no damage to the unit or loss of the unit keys/garage door opener. I'm sorry to have to charge this deposit but many guests have left with the building's key fob or the garage door opener!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • 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.

    Highly recommended.

  • 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.

  • Perfect location for a Miami Beach perfect vacation!
    Beach access, valet parking, workout room and a clean and cozy apartment to return to at the end the day.

    If you are visiting for business, you'll find everything thing you need a block or two away, Publix, Bal Harbour shopping center, restaurants to made yourself at home.

    I will definitely come back for my next visit.!

  • El departamento es muy lindo y cómodo pero le faltaban los servicios esenciales que decía ofrecer. El aire acondicionado del dormitorio principal no funcionaba, no había TV en el living, el servicio de AT&T de cable e internet no funcionaban y no hay teléfono de linea.
    Nunca contestaron al teléfono de contacto que nos habían brindado, aunque si por mail, pero no resolvieron en los 7 dias ninguno de los problemas.

  • The apt is in a great location, right on the beach- views are beautiful. It was clean, just the supplies limited- and it was hard to get In touch with the caretaker/owner.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Fun n Sun! The hostess is wonderful to talk to and very responsive to questions. This is a place where we would definitely go back!

    August 2012
  • Well-appointed condo in convenient location with just about everything we needed for the 5 of us. Well-equipped kitchen, plenty of beach towels, free parking, walking distance to some nice retaurants and shops, great views and lovely beach path for morning jogs on the water. The building was doing some pool maintenance while we were there, but as Shannon was also in town at the time, she was very accommodating and arranged for us to have access to a very nice pool a short walk from the building (she actually brought us there and we spent some time getting to know her and our kids enjoyed playing with Shannon's dog).

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.
