This apartment is great for a couple looking for a stay near the beach. The location is brilliant - in a brilliant part of South Beach - backing right onto the beach. Although just a few hundred meters from the main strip of Ocean Drive, it's actually on one of the quieter patches of beach - we had no problems finding a spot right by the sea.
The apartment is small but had everything we needed - good kitchen area. Gio gave us a great trip around the area when we collected keys, showing us all the good shops and restaurants.
Top marks for responsiveness - when we mentioned the fire alarm battery had run low, Gio came to fix it within a couple of hours.
Giovanni est très accueillant et sympathique, nous avons eu droit à un check-in + tôt que l'heure prévue (merci encore d'ailleurs !), il a pris le temps de tout nous montrer (piscine, accès direct à la plage, supermarché, ...) et nous a donné tout un tas de bons conseils.
L'appartement correspond exactement aux photos, il est très bien placé et on ne manque de rien. Je recommande vivement ce logement !
We enjoyed staying here. It was a small space but its so near the beach and Ocean Drive that its perfect. We used the pool as well which was a joy.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone who values location over space.
Like you requested we'll write our rating in Swiss German :)
sZimmer isch eher chli gsi, nöd geeignet für Lüt mit viel Gepäck. sganze Hus wird momentan renoviert, aber wenns denn fertig isch, wirds sicher schön. dLag isch super, würkli mega nöch bim Strand und de Restaurants. De Gio isch sehr hilfsbereit und het üs würkli alles zeiget, inkl. Restaurants womer günstig cha go zMorge esse.
Desde el momento que lleguemos todo fue encantador. Todo correcto y muy limpio , algo pequeño y las vistas poco nulas pero , por lo demás todo muy bien . Aconsejable edificio art dedo!
