About this listing
I have a beautiful and comfortable studio apartment, with cable & internet. It has a true beach feeling. It can comfortably fit 6 adults and is centrally located on a quiet street just two blocks from Ocean Drive.
Its a studio with two beds,1 bathroom. That also comes with a self service kitchen and living room space, which two extra people can sleep comfortably due to the queen size sofa bed. There is also high speed internet to keep you connected to the world and cable so you can keep up with your favorite shows while you stay at my place.
Interaction with Guests
I greet every guest upon arrival, answer any questions you may have, and give a small tour of the apartment.
The place is located in the heart of south beach in walking distance to the beach, clubs, and restaurants, all of the main attractions that the beach has to offer. You can walk to anywhere; you don't need a car. In case you have a car I offer parking passes so you can park anywhere around the property. I offer some essentials for breakfast like milk, juice, bread, cereal, eggs, coffee, sugar, creamers, tea, pots and pans so you can cook your own breakfast if needed. In the bathroom, I offer towels, wash cloths, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, conditioner, shower gel, shampoo. lotion, shower cap, q-tip, blow dryer, iron, etc.
Lovely apartment, 3 of us stayed, all working professionals on holiday, apartment is in perfect location, 5-10 mins walking from beach & ocean drive. The apartment itself was very nice, was ideal for what we wanted, While there is a sofa bed which was perfect, the best way of describing the room is that it is your standard hotel room with a kitchen. Chelo was easy to deal with, he had someone waiting for us to show us around the room, we didn't need to contact him while there but he was easy to contact & prompt to respond in the lead up to the trip.
Location, location, location! This spot was absolutely perfect for what we needed, and was walking distance of everything South Beach has to offer. Could not have asked for a better spot! Chelo was a very nice host, and was always accessible. Everything was just as advertised, and the beds were very comfortable. We had everything we needed for a long weekend stay, and were close enough to all shops and stores if we needed to grab something.
Our host made us feel comfortable & like we could call if we needed him. There was only 1 set of keys but We loved the location and we all slept comfortably. We would have appreciated a bit more of a clean up before we got there the fridge had left over food & drinks from the previous guests but we just threw it out no biggie. The shower nozzle was broken so we were stuck with Spaulding hot water for the first day & a half but Chelo came and fixed the nozzle & apologized. We would have preferred to be able to use the stove to cook & bake rather than hot plates but then again we didn't spend much time in the room anyway and just ate out. We did feel a little worried about the other neighbors in the building as were were coming in late and for 5 girls could be a little loud but for the most part everything was fine. Overall other then the minor problems it was great & I'd stay there again.
If you want to be close to the beach and everything to do then this is the place to stay. You must check out espanola way and Washington avenue is so much better than Lincoln road for restaurants and value for money! The apartment was great and had what it needed however if your after making your own food it's not as easy as he supplied a mini induction hob but weren't sure if the oven was working... the apartment hadn't been cleaned properly however the beds were clean and comfy which was the main thing. It was great for us for 4 nights!
Chelo's place was in the IDEAL location.. just across from an elementary school playground, so you know there wasn't a ton of riff raff going on outside. There's a HUGE tree which shades the front window, which is nice.
The location is just blocks from the beach and the part of the beach there has a bathroom and life guard stand just right there!
Chelo was very accommodating and responsive. He and his friend were very friendly and welcoming. He was great to work with. The space was great and comfortable for the 7 of us!
The previous folks had left a ton of beer and wine, and we did as well, so that was nice for our bachelorette party! The beach umbrella was hugely helpful, too! All the towels, extra linens, all the other little extras went a LONG way!
We had a great time, it was a great space. Thank you, Chelo! I will definitely not stay anywhere else on Miami Beach as long as your place is available.
Trata de un Depto. modesto, muy limpio y muy bien ubicado, con el agregado de que, Chelo, te da los tickets de estacionamiento en la zona sin problemas. Al Depto, le faltaria a mi entender, un par de sillas por si queres comer ahi, y tener donde sentarte, ya que en el sillon es un tanto incomodo y debiera estar conectada la enorme cocina a gas, no pudimos hacer nada al horno.
De todos modos, es recomendable la estadia.
Chelo, es muy amable.
**SOUTH BEACH RENTAL SOUTH BEACH RENTAL** If you don't get it by now, this is a SOUTH BEACH RENTAL. After staying in constant contact with us before the trip happened, my friend and I finally made it into Miami. We arrived a bit early before check in (around 10:45) and Chelo asked us to wait for a bit. We went to have lunch and came back for the 12:30 check in. Sad to say, the room still was not ready for us, however, we were so exhausted from the beer drinking in the heat and the travel that we truly did not care. Before he left, Chelo talked to me about not using the stove, but to instead use the hot plate, however, I informed him, we are on vacation and will not be cooking anything. The beds were comfortable, the TV was fine, the AC worked great. Shower was fine, we had hot water whenever we took a shower. I would have loved a rack to hang our wet clothes from the beach, and a larger trash can so that we could try to still be neat! I have no idea why individuals were complaining about its proximinity. to things around the area. This is a south beach rental. It was prime location for EVERYTHING on south beach. Two blocks from the beach and a block from Espanola Way? Perfection. We were smack dab in the middle whether we wanted to go up or down south beach. Perfect location and EVERYONE was jealous of us having more space for half the cost of the nearby hotels.
