Sunny apartment located in SoFi (South of Fifth) the nicest most exclusive neighborhood of South Beach! Beautiful, peaceful and quiet neighborhood, but only a few blocks from all the nightlife. Also, just 4 blocks to the beach! Walk to Southpoint Park and South Beach marina. Walk to supermarket, restaurants and nightlife. Apartment has full kitchen, towels and linens. There is a king size bed in the bedroom and there are two air beds (1 queen, 1 full) that can be used for extra bed space in the living room. Street parking is free from 7am-6pm M-F and there are also meters 1 block away as well as a parking garage 1 block away if you prefer to park in a garage. The apartment is one block from local bus that will easily take you all over South Beach for just 25 cents!
NOTE: There is no more construction happening behind the apartment building as was mentioned in one of the reviews. The project is complete so no more noise :)
South of Fifth is the nicest neighborhood in all of South Beach! It is more high end so there is not all the loud tourists like in other parts of South Beach. But it is just a few blocks to Washington Ave and Ocean Drive and all the action so it's very easy to walk to where the bars/restaurants, etc are. And the best thing is that it is just 3 blocks to the beach!
The apartment is one block from local bus that will easily take you all over South Beach for just 25 cents! There are also two golf cart services that will pick up up and take you anywhere is south beach for free! You just tip the driver whatever you want. They are called Swoop and Freebee.
Other Things to Note
Please note that you must use matches or a lighter to turn stove on. It is like that to keep kids safe :) Also wifi is klove and password is southbeach11. And the lamp in the living room is turned on by pressing on the button on cord that is on the floor.
Most Important Rule: PLEASE TURN OFF AC AND LIGHTS WHEN YOU ARE NOT IN THE APARTMENT. Thank you! And when you are in the apartment please try to keep AC at 78 degrees. And please NO SMOKNG in the apartment!! Also, please leave everything in the condition you found it and please take out your trash before you leave to the big blue bins in the back of the building. And please be careful not to stain pillows or linens with sun block/tanning oil. Oh and one more thing, if you don't mind, please give some love/water to the plants :) Other than that, just HAVE FUN and ENJOY :)
Kendri has been very kind and available to answering all our questions even if we haven't met. The apartment is in a very nice neighborhood, however parking is a mess (the signs are very confusing too and everybody would give different explanations..), just find a garage nearby.
The apartment would be very nice, it just needs some refurbishing and some cleaning as it didn't match our expectation of how clean a house for rent should be.
The location, however, is priceless.
Kendri was a great hostess. Though she wasn't in town to meet us, she went above and beyond to ensure that we'd have a place to store our bags since we were arriving before our check in time. The apartment is in a fantastic location-- walking distance to everything in South Beach, yet still in a quite neighborhood. Though the bathroom was a bit dated, everything worked adequately. The bed was very comfortable, the living area was spacious, and overall the apartment was well decorated and welcoming. The apartment is in a very residential area of South Beach, allowing for generally a very quite and home-like experience. There was construction going on down the block, but this was out of everyones' control and Kendri made sure to inform us of it ahead of time. Street parking is essential nonexistent for visitors on weekends (most spots require a residential pass)-- but apparently this is the case all over Miami beach. Kendri provided a few low-cost garages nearby as an alternative. She certainly went out of her way to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible.
Above all, however, I want to stress the fantastic location of the apartment. It is so close to everything, but also in very a quite residential neighborhood. If I come back to Miami Beach I'd want to stay at Kendri's place again for this reason.
Kendri's apt is at a great location, everything is within 10 minutes walk. So don't travel with a car, the parking is a pain.
Muy bueno el departamento, super bien ubicado y muy comodo. Ademas una muy buena anfitriona que en todo momento estuvo atenta a solucionar las inquietudes que se me palntearon, lo recomiendo.
I was really please at the accommodation. What you see is what you get! The location is really good and it is walking distance to the beach, shops and bars. The host kept in contact and provided us with everything we needed. Myself an my friend would defiantly stay here again.
The apartment was incredibly well-located and was delivered as described. The host was very easy to reach and responsive to our questions. Front and back doors to building stay open 24/7, but neighborhood is quiet. Two adults, three nights.
