About this listing
We welcome you to our awesome apartment which is located in the heart of South Beach. Large bedroom just off Lincoln Rd. Our Apartment building has a pool and a parking space for our guests. Message for info & see our reviews on our profile ;)
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. The room has a Queen size bed with a tempurpedic mattress =)
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. Ideally our goal is to make our guest feel like they are in their own home but just IN MIAMI
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 a block off 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.
We spent a whole week with Jimmy and Jenn. We used their apartment as a home base to explore South Beach. It is an incredibly convenient location that is nestled on a quiet neighborhood street.
We were super happy to introduce our small dog Yogi to their dog Macey. It was love at first sight. Those two cute dogs had a great time playing together. Macey is such a loving and well-behaved dog. A delightful addition to the "feel-like-home" atmosphere.
Jimmy and Jenn were super helpful on giving us tips on where to eat and what to try. They know! We had some fabulous food over and over again.
How did we get around? Well, we took Uber from the airport to their place and we rode our Solowheels all over South Beach. Super convenient. See (website hidden). Sadly I did not have a chance to teach Jimmy (next time amigo); however, I was able to be part of this video just down the street from where they live: (website hidden)
Extremely welcoming and hospitable. Perfect for what we were looking for in our trip. I wish we had more time to enjoy the area and explore some of our hosts local tips (especially the restaurants).
