My partner and I had a great time at Gio and LeBrunos place. The location is flawless couldn't have asked for a better spot.
Gio was very welcomed and showed us the apartment , the beach and some other important spots of south beach. The apartment is smaller than it looks but it's sufficient, it was almost clean. Luckily, only On the last day we found a roach in the back of our bathroom but the rest was clean. The location of the apartment is very well with a direct walk to the beach and just a few steps to the ocean drive. In addition, Gio offered for our last day a late check out for an additional fee of 50 Dollar, which was so great because our flight started in the evening. I would definitely stay there again. Thank you for being our host.
Seraphine , so glad that you liked it so much that you are willing to return, and that we were able to reschedule that day a late cleaning staff so you could check out at 5 pm instead of 11:00 am.
Indeed the cleaning staff reported 1 dead roach behind the toilet and assured us it was not there when they cleaned the room before your arrival, is reason why you only saw it on your last day, since this never happened before, "and hopefully will never happen again", so we called our building monthly Eco-friendly pest control service to report the issue.
Thank you for staying with us.
The room was perfect for me and my boyfriend, the beach is SO close (basically in the backyard) which was ideal. The apartment is on ocean drive (the strip) in a location that is walking distance to all the restaurants and bars but far enough that you have some peace and quiet. Gio was a great host!! So helpful answered all questions promptly. Highly recommend this place.
Gio was very welcoming, showed the places that have next to the apartment. The apartment is clean, everything works. Location is excellent, close to many shops, restaurants and cafes.I would recommend to stay at Gio.
Gio was a nice host, he welcomed us personally and took his time to show us parking spaces, good restaurants, super markets and gave us insider tipps! Perfect also in communication!
The apartment is small, but big enough for 2 persons for a limited time! We stayed 5 nights and it was ok! The kitchen is well equipped; everything was clean!
The pool is nice with places to relax! The best thing of the applartment is the location! 2 minutes to the beach and the Atlantic Ocean and directly located to the ocean drive with its restaurants and bars! Perfect! Would come again! We found the paradise ;-)
This really is the perfection location, the back of the block is the beach, its in the slightly quieter part of ocean but everything you could want is in walking distance. Gio was more than welcoming and made sure we were comfortable with the area and walked us out to show us everything. His communication was great and on point.
This place was perfect! Right on the beach with a pool. Very clean, had everything you could need right there in the room! Close to the night life and good places to eat! Gio and LeBruno were very friendly and had showed us around the first day we arrived; suggesting places to eat and visit. And prior to the trip, they answered any questions we had and were always willing to help. I would most definitely stay here again!
