This place is awesome with a 1 minute walk to the beach. Everything was clean and comfy. Gio and LeBruno were very friendly and show us around. Thank you very much!!!
Gio was the best, we communicated with each other very well, he was very helpful. as soon as we arrived he gave us a great tour of the place, and walked us outside the surrounding areas as well, this is a very great location. not to mention walking distance to nikki beach. I totally recommend staying here. Great price, and great location. it feels like you have your own private entrance to the beach.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review! It was a pleasure having you both here, and we're so glad that we were able to help make it a memorable trip for you, "having your own private entrance to the beach..is the way to go"...!
The place is in a superb location!! HIGHLY recommended for anyone who wants a nice peaceful stay in Miami, I'm really glad I managed to get this place- it's a gem. Everything basic was provided from the beds, tables etc. no toiletries but doesn't bother us much we just went across to get some from the grocer. The blanket which was the bed sheet maybe slightly too thin for some as its cold at night, maybe thicker sheets would be better, other than that, great experience. Wifi is superb and fast, made calls back home smoothly with no interference. Gio provided a great short tour around the hood and we had great and awesome conversations which went on and on.

""'The place is in a superb location!! HIGHLY recommended for anyone who wants a nice peaceful stay in Miami, I'm really glad I managed to get this place- it's a gem.""" , that's the ultimate compliment for us...!..As for the blanket on the bed sheet slightly too thin, you should know, we also have inside one of the closets a nice Queen Comforter Set for those "cold nights"...wish you've asked for it..!?!
We hope that your travels will bring you back to Miami Beach again someday :-)
Gio and LeBruno met us when we arrived in the building. They were kind to show us personaly all the building's facilities and walked us arround the neighbourhood, I felt very welcomed. Communication with them was always easy.
About the apartment, what you see is what you get. The ocean is right behind, although you can't see it from your window. Small (couldn't fit more than a couple), but has everything you need, even beach towels and a cooler so you can bring cold drinks to the beach.
The area is very nice, you can relax, but the crowded part of South Beach is in a walking distance too. I didn't need a car for anything there. Had a good experience!
The studio is located in a perfect location close to the beach and other amenities. Gio made us feel welcome and gave us a short tour of the place and the beach which was much appreciated. The studio has everything you need for a short trip for a couple. Overall a very good stay! Thank you Gio & LeBruno.
Ideal place to visit the excellent South beach. Restaurants / shops all in walking distance. The hosts are excellent to deal with any requests. When I return I would look up this place to stay again plus recommend any friends and family to stay here.
