About this listing
We welcome you to stay at our lovely apartment which is located in the heart of South Beach. The main detail is our location. This apartment is 2 blocks from the Famous Lincoln Road Mall but it is tucked away on a small quiet side street.
The apartment complex is small, quiet, and slightly resembles Melrose Place. It is also surrounded by 20 foot bushes and large trees that give the place an intimate feel.
You will not need a physical key because there is a buzzer for the front gates and a punch code for the apartment's door. We installed the coded lock so our guests wouldn't have to worry about losing a key at the beach and not having access.
The inside of the apartment is spacious. The kitchen is large and fully stocked with everything you will need to prepare a meal. The appliances are all new and fully functioning. There is also Keurig coffee machine for your use.
The dining room table can accommodate up 6 people. The living room has a 55" HDTV with a full cable package and Apple TV. The sectional is large, clean, and comfortable.
There are 2 bathrooms and are fully stocked with towels. 1 room has a king size bed with a tempurpedic mattress and the other has a queen bed
There is a designated parking spot included, although the location is so perfect that you will most likely not even need a rental car. There is also a small pool with loungers available. It is a perfect place to catch some sun without leaving the house.
We offer fresh sheets, basic toiletries, and towels for the bathroom. The kitchen is completely stocked and available for your (website hidden) a few meals during your stay can save you a surprising amount of money.
You also have full use of the washer and dryer inside the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
Having being AirBnB Hosts for 2 years now, we are very experienced with the process. This is our newest location so please excuse the limited reviews. Please take a moment to view our profile and read our extensive positive reviews. We host and stay with AirBnB often, so we know what its like to be in your shoes.
We do not offer a classic full service Bed & Breakfast. We offer a hands-off hosting experience that we would prefer while we are traveling. We want our guests to have a great deal of privacy and feel like a local while traveling.
That being said, we are very supportive to our guests. Both our phones will be available at all times and we live only a few blocks away. We also have an extensive welcome packet that we have written. This includes details about the apartment and suggestions about to dine, drink, and play.
Although our apartment complex is incredibly close to all the action of south beach, our street is tucked away just 2 blocks north of the famous Lincoln Road Mall. It is a surprisingly quiet section of Miami Beach with a lot of beautiful foliage. It is also incredibly safe and decently lit during the night.
Public transit in Miami Beach has just taken a turn for the best with the Uber app. Just download the app to your smart phone, upload your credit card information, and you will be moments away from effortlessly hailing a ride. We recommend loading the app and using the promo code: jennk33 for a free $30 ride, which is perfect coming into Miami beach from the airport because it gives you a FREE ride and its a personal car service, so very cleans and they help with your bags. =) you're welcome. This will seriously help with the otherwise expensive cab ride from the airport.
Prices are inline with regular taxi cab prices but the drivers are friendlier and the cars are very clean.
There is also Deco Bikes available for rental. The bike stations are scattered throughout the city and are simple to use. You can buy an hourly pass or rent for the entire day. The great thing is that you can also return the bike to the station and pick it up again, as long as it is within your rental period.
The local bus is wonderful as well. For just 25¢, yes I mean quarter, you can be taken of the large loop around south beach. This an easy way to see the city for the 1st time.
No smoking is allowed in the house. There is a balcony with 2 lounge chairs and an ashtray that you can use.
No loud music. Please respect the other apartments. The neighbors are not on vacation. They are locals and work during the days.
Jenn and James were fabulous hosts. They were attentive and available. Their place was in the BEST location, well stocked, comfortable well organized. We used to live in Miami and this trip felt like we were visiting home and staying with friends. We hated leaving:(
Jenn and James were wonderful. They received us as we were friends coming for a visit and apart of that had plenty of tips for our stay in Miami, they were helpful, kind and respectful. Every time I needed anything I simply texted Jenn and an answer was coming right away. In the apartment, they even had bought shampoo and conditioner as well as different kinds of shower gels for us. And as an extra treat some chocolate, pumpkin pie and three bottles of nice wine. A very warm welcome!
The apartment was perfect! Spacious, clean and a real home away from home. We had a great time there and felt very pleasant. It is centrally located, and yet quiet (unlike all the hotels nearby in James and Collins Avenue).
The neighbors in the apartment house were kind and quiet, and all in all the place was clean and felt safe.
I would definitely stay with James and Jenn again!
Thank you so much for everything.
