About This Listing
My beautiful apartment in South Beach is your home away from home! The apartment is very well-equipped, and beautifully decorated. Most importantly it is just steps to the Ocean, and all the wonderful bars and restaurants & nightlife of Ocean Dr!!
This luxurious queen-sized bed easily sleeps two. The apartment is equipped with -speed internet (you can work from home if you like) a flat screen TV, with Netflix, Hulu, so you can watch a huge choice of movies, and television programs from around the
Our apartment is in the midst of Miami's famed Art Deco District. It is in an absolutely ideal location -- it's so easy to walk everywhere! The beach is just steps away. The apartment is just a couple of block's walk to the nightlife, shopping and restaurants of South Beach on Ocean Drive, but without the noise or the traffic.
With our apartment it is easy to have "Two Vacations in One" -- a relaxing and tranquil, idyllic beach vacation, AND the excitement of the dazzling international South Beach nightlife, just steps away!
It's so easy to walk along the seemingly endless white sands of Miami Beach, and the beach's wonderful boardwalk is right there too. You'll find this brick and board pathway ideal for walking, running, bicycling or roller-blading for miles and miles. We find it is one of the best things about South Beach -- you can get in great shape while enjoying some of the finest people-watching on the planet!
The swimming is marvelous, as the sandy beach has a gentle slope, with crystal clear water, that is luxuriously warm and soothing! During a good share of the year you can swim for hours without even getting a chill. It's wonderful to go for a swim a couple of hours before sunset, and then paddle around as you watch the spectacular play of ever-changing colors dappling the waves as the sun dips below the horizon.
Of course, there are terrific restaurants, clubs, and bars here, as well as wonderful designer shopping, and you'll be staying in the historic Art Deco District, in a secured and authentic and beautiful Art Deco building.
Our chic and thoughtfully furnished apartment is equipped with everything that you'll need for a fabulous time in South Beach. There is a queen-sized bed, as well as a full kitchen. There is a 32" LCD TV, and we importantly offer free high-speed wifi internet. We also have a chic leather sofa that doubles as a sofa bed, which can accommodate an extra guests or two. The kitchen is complete with fridge, dishwasher, microwave, a full stove with an oven. You'll find all the dishes, and cooking equipment you'll need, with enough glassware and dinnerware for entertaining a number of guests. You'll also find extras like a hairdryer, coffee maker, iron, toaster, blender, and many other amenities to make your stay comfortable and convenient. Of course, all linens and towels are provided for your stay.
Importantly should you need to work from home, or keep up to date on the outside world, our wireless high-speed internet is complimentary.
Of course, it is all yours for your vacation in your home-away-from-home in Miami Beach!
Laundry facilities are on the same floor.
We love our neighborhood! It is so convenient to everything -- we can walk everywhere -- to shopping from basics like groceries, and pharmacies, to Armani, and Ralph Lauren, just around the corner, and of course, the restaurants, bars and clubs of South Beach. Yet it's great to be in a residential neighborhood, where it is quiet and peaceful at night. It gives us the best of all worlds!
It's easy to catch buses on Washington Street that will take you all over Miami if you wish. But in fact, we rarely need to go anywhere we can't walk! :)
We take special care to make sure that you have a wonderful time in South Beach on your vacation! We get so many guests from Europe, and South America -- we have an apartment also in Rio and in New York, and have been renting to holiday-makers for years, and have had hundreds of delighted guests!

[Marty actually upgraded me to a nicer apartment. for that alone he is an awesome host. but also, here is my review of the other place.]
FIVE STARS! This was a romantic getaway for me and my girlfriend, and we could not have been happier. Marty was tremendously helpful, we chatted several times as he worked with me to find a place when my original request was not available. He told me everything i needed to know about his apartment. It was gorgeous, the pics do not even do justice to the incredible interior decorating. Perfect location, a 5-minute walk to the beach. Right near the action part of SoBe, yet its on a quiet street. There is a washer and dryer available, which is just so handy for a long beach vacation. My girlfriend was skeptical of AirBnb, but thanks to this experience she is converted and will never stay in a hotel again.
Marty and Anthony were great hosts! This was our first time using airbnb so we didn't know what to expect but they were very accommodating and easily available. The place was exactly as described, very nicely renovated and close by to anything you might need in Miami. Thanks guys!
Yes , I am satisfied about the apartment . Marty and Anthony are special as the location .
If you are looking for a studio , right on the ocean , and right on the walking area , served by everything within a couple of blocks , you are on the right place
I cannot say enough about Marty!! He communicated so well and was so sweet in email and phone. We have stayed at so many airbnb's and he is an outrageously awesome and helpful host. The place is also great. As semi-frequent visitors to South Beach, you will never find anything this good for less. It is small, but well-designed to leave adequate space for your things and yourself. Everything was spotless and there was everything you could need in the kitchen. There was work being done on and around the building, but it never disturbed us. The location is priceless. And again, Marty and Anthony and really the best. They even left us a gift for our arrival!! Highly recommend staying at their place,
We have stayed for one month in this beautifull apartment. The flat is situated right on the beach and is very well equipped. The owner Anthony is very nice and helpfull person. We would reccomend to everybody who would like to enjoy a peacefull holidays right on the beach in Miami !!!
The studio was the perfect place to spend a long holiday weekend. It had everything that we could have possibly needed. Although the weather was too cold to go in the pool or ocean, I can imagine that it would have been perfect to have everything right there for us. The apt. is within walking distance to many restaurants and bars, but just far enough off the main strip (about a block) so that it was quiet. Marty/Anthony were a pleasure to deal with and were quick to respond to our questions and concerns. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to Miami Beach!

About the Host, Marty
Hi! We have been renting our apartment in Rio de Janeiro for nearly 10 years, and now Miami! We rent almost entirely thru word-of-mouth and referrals, but thought we would try AirBnB.
We have made loads of friends from all over the world when they rent our apartments. We try to ensure that you will have a fabulous time when you stay at our apartments, and get the most out of your visit to Miami Beach, Manhattan, or Rio!! We hope to hear from you soon!
