Bus 150 takes you straight from Miami International Airport to Washington Ave and 13th street which is only 1 blocks from apartment.
There are buses all around the beach taking you straight to the airport and to midtown. It is pretty convenient to go downtown but you'd have to transit once. There is also a bus taking you straight to Bal Harbor, one of the biggest and most visited malls in South Florida.

First, location is awesome. It takes literally 30 seconds to go to south beach, ocean drive. Also Elias is the kindest host that I've ever met. He picked me up at the street, brought me to travel agency office and made me local foods and cups of coffee. Thank you Elias!
The apartment's location is perfect, there is only one block from the beach and all that Miami Beach can offer to tourists. The apartment is simple and has everything you need for your stay. Elias is a good person, made me feel at home and did everything to make me feel good. I looked for a room and also found a friend.
I have nothing to complain about, I recommend you know Miami Beach with my friend Elias.
Excellent location!!! You have everything you need including the beach in 2 minutes by walk. The Host what can I say! Elias is really an exception person, he goes beyond what one might expect, Elias has the distinction of making you feel at home from the first minute you meet him, you feel like you knew him forever, Elias was always very attentive and available to allow all my requirement The building was under remodeling; the apartment is simple but comfortable, the kitchen and bathroom are acceptable but also need to be remodeled is a building of 40 or 50 years old. In conclusion, it was a wonderful experience to be in Miami Beach with the super Host Elias!
This was my first experience with Airbnb and I couldn't have got a better host. You can tell Elias likes been a host. He made me feel very welcome right away. He is an outgoing (although he says the oposite) friendly, conversant... He is a great guy. He was kind enough to show me around and give me all the guidance I needed.
The place is just as advertised (I have no complains whatsoever), and the location couldn't be better.
If I go back, I wouldn't think about staying in a different place... not if Elias can take me...
I echo all the praise from others for Elias and the location of his home. Elias is exceedingly kind, thoughtful, and gracious, and he made me feel immediately welcome, at home, and at ease. On arrival, Elias met me at the bus stop (only one block from his home) early in the morning and kindly allowed me to check in earlier than the official start time, which I really appreciated. Throughout my stay, he made himself available to me, was helpful with any questions I had, and was always friendly and warm. We had a few meals together and I really enjoyed getting to spend time with him and learn about him and his Miami life. As mentioned by others, Elias' home is small and the building is old, but everything is in working order and the guest has his own space for sleeping keeping things. Solo travelers looking to be situated right on Miami Beach can't ask for a better place to stay!
Location, Location, Location --The apartment is in a GREAT location in a secure building a half block from Ocean Drive which is right across from the beach. It is also located next to a parking garage which is very convenient (although a car is NOT needed at all). The host was very friendly and accommodating. Elias greeted me at the agreed upon time and made me feel welcomed right from the start. He is friendly and easy going. I also enjoyed the balcony and the roof top deck. This is my 3rd or 4th stay with Elias. I will definitely book again.
