This was a great little apartment: cozy and in a good location.
We had a great stay at Gladys apartment in Miami beach. The location is definitely the best feature of this place. It is just a block and half away from the beautiful and not crowded beach. The neighborhood is quieter and less touristy than South Beach and also less expensive! There were plenty of nice and affordable restaurants within walking distance, Peruvian, Venezuelan, Cuban, Argentinian, Italian, and also Publix grocery store close by. Gladys gave us great recommendations for where to eat and we never even had to leave our neighborhood. Parking was relatively easy to find on the street if you don't mind having to walk a block sometimes but usually we found it very close to the apartment.
The apartment itself was nicely furnished and comfortable for 2 people. The kitchen was sufficient to cook simple meals. There was even a beach umbrella for us to use which was great. Plenty of clean linens available but no real beach towels. The bed was comfortable and the A/C kept everything cool. The only things that could have been better was that if you had any windows open you could hear all the neighbors around you and the street noise very clearly but if you kept them closed with the A/C on it was ok. We are the type who don't like A/C so it would have been nice to be able to open the windows more. Also it is an older apartment and showing some wear and tear and could have been a bit cleaner. If you were expecting "hotel" style then definitely not but for a regular home it was ok. For the price, you can't really expect more.
Gladys was a good host, prompt communication and helpful. We had a misunderstanding about arrival and check'-in times that meant we had to wait a few extra hours before checking in but Gladys did her best to work everything out and it ended up being just fine. She tries to be flexible with check-in/check-out times which was nice. We didn't have much contact with her during our stay after our initial phone calls to check in and that was fine with us. Overall we had a really great stay and would definitely go back! The area of Miami Beach is wonderful and the sun and beach are all you need to have a great time!
Easy beach access. Publix and other businesses very close. Bicycle rental almost at the front door. Wanted quiet beach. This is the area.
Had a great time. Gladys was an exceptional host. She was prompt with everything. I was an idiot and lost my id on the plane but I was able to have my passport overnighted. Gladys went out of her way and told me to send my passport to another address where reception would recieve my package and hand delivered it to me to ensure its delivery. I originally chose her due to her positive ratings. I am glad I did. Gladys you are an amazing and kind person. To anyone reading I recommend her over and over again.
We enjoyed our stay. The location was easy walking distance to the beach and restaurants and stores. Parking can be a bit difficult, but once we found a spot we didn't move from it since we were able to walk everywhere. This location gives you a "living in the neighborhood" feeling as opposed to a tourist center feel, which we enjoyed but may not be everyone.
Stayed at Glady's place for a Friday night and everything was great. Parking was a breeze and we were able to find multiple spots right in front of the building, which was only a few blocks away from the beach. It was clean, tidy, and comfortable for a family. Thanks again Glady!
I notice you get what you pay for with air bob, esp. In the states.
The apt was inexpensive and in a good location for me. My only complaint is that it was a bit dirty. It was obvious that it hadn't been cleaned since the last tenant was there. The sheets on one bed were dirty and had hairs on them, there were moldy coffee grounds in the coffee maker, and the whole place a bit dirty, esp. The kitchen. That said the price is right, you will just want to clean up a bit before u unpack.
Gladys is such a nice, helpful and professional host. She went extra miles to help us when we decide to stay longer in Miami. Will recommend her to anyone who comes to visit Miami. Thank you Gladys!
Plus side: we lived close to the beach and some shopping and dining places further down the street. Glady was also responsive to our concerns and acted quickly. Bus stops right outside the condo, going to south beach and aventura mall... Minus side: not the cleanest place we've stayed at through airbnb. Quite rough sea by miami beaches for young kids to play and swim in.
Would recommend this living for party people, not young families so much, but that's just a personal opinion!
The apartment was very cozy and it was a great location for the beach! Easy access to South Beach and a nice neighborhood. Easy transaction. For the price, it was wonderful!
