Disaster. Smells like mold. Absolutely no essentials for living in the place - no toilet paper, soap, paper towels etc. Hope you don't need to go to the bathroom when you arrive. Jacuzzi isn't hot enough to use and the temperature controls are (website hidden) remote doesn't work (cable box remote does but no volume control...) Heater didn't work so he told me to buy a portable heater. (!)
Then there started this horrible screeching noise which I recorded and brought to (Italy based) landlord's attention. It would screech an alarm randomly day and night INSIDE THE APARTMENT. Landlord did NOTHING. He told me just to "pull out the alarm speaker". Only when I complained to Airbnb after more than a week of sleepless nights did he do anything. Complete jerk. At his permission I broke lease early.
You've been warned.

Well Airbnb community what can I say... Bill has pushed me to get into the apt the same day the previous guest left. Actually he paid me from the day he booked the apt but requested to get into the apt two days before... and of course I granted him this possibility TELLING HIM THAT I HAD NOT ENOUGH TIME TO SET UP EVERYTHING THE APT needs ( toilet paper, soap, paper towels) other that the cleaning. He accepted but now complaints about the deal. My apt has always been wonderfully set up for everybody (please read other review).
Second... he has been complaining for the temperature in Miami (say what?? Temperature in Miami in march???) and told me that the AC system that is inside the apt is not enough to heat the apt, so I TOLD HIM TO BUY AN HEATER AT MY EXPENSES TO FULFILL HIS NEEDS.
third... 431 sq apt with a blind bathroom (no window inside the bathroom) NEEDS TO LET THE WINDOW TO BE OPEN FOR A WHILE TO VENTILATE after you took a shower... I kept telling this to Bill but I think he had some trouble in understanding the way it works with shower and mold.
Fourth... the screeching... Bill kept telling me about this terrible sound COMING FROM THE FIRE ALARM and I had my maintenance guy go and check three times at different hours and days and no screeching was heard... He forgot to add that the screeching WAS COMING FROM THE DOOR CLOSING DEVICE because Bill was inserting the wrong code over and over and the system goes in a protection routine and starts screeching loudly. Bill was not even able to point out where the sound came from and kept saying that was the fire alarm.. I think he has some kind of problems in understanding things...
Last but not least.. we agreed he would move out sooner because of all these issues and I granted him almost the total refund of the amount he paid. He promised he would have left the extra things he bought for the apt (extra bed sheet, extra bath towels, a bath carpet, a blender for his amino and protein shaker) (and that I have paid to him) and then I found out that besides the heater he took away with him all the above not respecting the agreement we have had... now you tell me who is the jerk! You do the math!
To be sure about the service I have provided to all my guest during these 4 years of renting this specific apartament PLEASE READ ALL THE OTHER REVIEWS BEFORE BOOKING THE APT AND DISREGARD THIS ONE WRITTEN BY A NOT HONEST PERSON.
Thank you airbnb community.
Umberto is a fantastic host. He helped me out a lot prior to my trip and was available on the phone during my stay. What I liked the most about his place is that it is really quiet and comfortable ( you can get a good night's sleep) and yet it is in the middle of all the action in Lincoln Road. If you are looking for excellent location and a great host, this is your place!
Excelente apartamento, ubicación "INIGUALABLE".
Excellent apartment, "UNMATCHED" location.
The apartment is right where the action is.
You fall in Lincoln Road, pedestrian more top Miami Beach street in South Beach.
The unit is spacious, modern, pleasant and confortable.
The building is well designed, beautiful and very good and friendly neighbors
Umberto, thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was excellent experience for us, we had been very satisfied, the location the house were exceptionally good. The spaciousness, cleanliness and cooks kitchen allowed us to feel at home and chill out from the activities we had planned for our visit to Miami Beach. The home was exactly as presented on the website. Umberto was an absolutely great host. Thanks!
Amazing apartment, great location and service! Will definitely come back! 10 of 10 stars for Umberto!
Simply put I would stay here again and recommend this location to anyone heading to South Beach. Lincoln Rd is a stones throw away with great shopping, resturants and bars. Walking to the beach took about 10 minutes. The one bedroom condo was clean, and accomodated 2 couples wonderfully, albiet we are easy going and one slept on the futon (we came prepared with pillows and sheets). The condo owner and management are extremely attentive and communicative. The shower is AMAZING!
