Apartment - Private room · Pennsylvania Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139, United States

Sunny, happy, clean, home like, safe.

The Space

Welcome Everyone ! I hope you'll enjoy my home as much as I have while living here.

I have a great bed room available in a historic Mediterranean revival building, centrally located in the Flamingo Park district of the South Beach neighborhood of beautiful Miami Beach! I've tried to make it both trendy and comfortable the way I would expect a room in SoBe to be;) I know you'll love it.

The room is newly completely furnished and can comfortably accommodate up to two guests at a time. A comfortable queen size bed awaits your head to lay on after a great day experiencing beautiful South Beach. The closet has room for up to three suit cases, hanging clothes, and above head storage for all the shopping you're going to do while here;)

The main bath room is super clean ( former Navy boy here, I know how to clean on my hands and knees ;), but you'll have your own private half bath at your use as well. I have a stack washer / dryer for your use so you can go home with fresh clothes and no worries. The kitchen has everything you need.. maybe we can even cook a meal together ? But the best part of my place, and my personal favorite, is the living room. The view of the green foliage outside from the huge white curtain lined windows with the amazing light filled room in the morning really makes you feel like you could live here forever... hey, its why I'm still here ;) I also have a pretty bad ass Blu Ray player and surround sound system with a 50 inch plasma TV (although my instinct tells me you probably won't stay in for a movie night on the sofa with me ;) jajaja

Staying with me, you'll find yourself only 4 blocks west from Ocean Dr. ( a leisurely 5 min stroll with all the bars and restaurants) where you can then go swim and surf all day on the white sandy beach til your sun burn can't take it any more, 2 blocks west from Washington Ave where all the huge night clubs are, 1 block south from Espanola Way ( a great Spanish styled pedestrian mall ), 2 blocks east from the super friendly and local filled Flamingo Park ( wait til you see all the little dogs!! ), and of course a 5 1/2 block stroll south from Lincoln Rd ( amazing pedestrian road mall, Miami Beach's finest people watching ).

I also have residential parking passes available for you to purchase for $5 a day if you're renting a car, or there are meters only one block away on Espanola Way, or city controlled parking lots between $15-$25 per day.

Located within the same block as my property is one of over 85 DecoBike stations. DecoBike is a bike sharing program on the beach where you can rent, use, and return bikes at over 85 stations throughout the city of Miami Beach for $5 an hr. Its super easy and cheap way of covering the whole beach quickly!

Guest Access

The main bath room with toilet, bath tub, and shower. The half bath room with toilet. The stack washer and dryer machines. The kitchen with dishwasher. The living room with plasma TV and stereo system.

Interaction with Guests

Usually a lot with solo guests as they tend to like to hang out, less so with couples as they tend to want to do their own thing. I leave it it up to the vibe felt between us and my work schedule.

The Neighborhood

It's ease of quick access and central location to everything on the beach. It had a quiet calm vibe, despite being two blocks from some of the best night clubs.

Getting around

The 150 Airport Flyer for $2.65 provides direct transport from the airport transportation terminal to 13th & Washington Ave, three blocks from my apartment. One on the beach, the SBL, South Beach Local bus run both counter and clockwise around all of South Beach for .25. The deco bike station is a great biking alternative for $5 every 30 mins.

Other Things to Note

Please do not adjust the air conditioner without speaking to me first. Do not leave open any windows.

  • Very very central location in south beach - close to Hespanyola St and the beach - place is real clean and also has a separate toilet which is good as you feel you aren't intruding - great host and experience of Miami!

    September 2013
  • Stephen was a wonderful host! He was very prompt when responding back to our inquiry about his place and any questions we had about it. He is very knowledgable about the Miami area and was incredibly helpful in suggesting places to go during our stay. He is very easy to get along with and keeps his place very neat and clean. We felt comfortable and right at home our entire stay and I would recommend Stephen for anyone looking for a nice place in the South Beach area!

    Thank you Julie. It was great having you and Wes over and I wish you both the very best in your future together.

  • The apartment is very conveniently located and Stephen seems like a nice guy! He wasn't there most of the time so we didn't get to meet him well, but we had the whole apartment to ourselves.. That was nice!
    Clean common areas, quite small guest bathroom and bedroom, but for the price it's fine!
    Would definitely recommend ***

Hard for the money
Hello everyone !! I live right in the center of Miami Beach and love the life here. Everything is accessible by foot in less than 20 mins. I'm pretty laid back, prefer small groups of friends over big loud clubs... but of course living in South Beach I do my fair share of partying too ;) I like to read, experience new food, travel internationally more than domestically, and enjoying adventures.
