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.
Chelo was a great host! He was great with all my inquiries prior to my visit. And I must commend him for being so accommodating with me even with my delayed flight. The place was just right for 4 people. Very nice and very spacious! And I must say we were nearby by the beach and lots of awesome restaurants on Espanola Way! I would definitely stay here again!
Coming to the apartment, we met Chelo outside. He is a nice guy, held a parking spot on the street and fixed parking permits through out the stay. The apartment itself was not big, but that was not expected nor necessary as we weren't planning on using it for more than sleeping. At first sight most stuff seemed fine.
However, after getting our stuff up we took off our shoes and that's when we noticed how filthy the floor was. We actually had to use shoes inside, or start washing. We weren't staying for more than three nights so we didn't bother much. Other things was lights not working, the couch which doubled as an extra bed was totally worn out and wasn't really suited for sitting in, there was a kitchen, but pretty much no plates, glasses or the likes. Some disposables was all.
Probably fine as a sleeping arrangement for a few kids out to party, but definitely not for families.
It's pretty ideally situated in South Beach, close to shopping, food, bars, beachfront and could have been a great spot.
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.
