About this listing
Sunny, happy, clean, home, safe & positive vibe.
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 suitcases, hanging clothes, and above head storage for all the shopping you're going to do while here;)
The main bathroom is super clean & we share the main shower, but you'll have your own private half bath with toilet for your own private use. I have a stack washer / dryer for your use. The kitchen has everything you need. 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... I also have a pretty bad ass Blu Ray player and surround sound system with a 50 inch plasma TV.
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 sunburn 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 $10 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 CitiBike stations. CitiBike 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!
The main bathroom with toilet, bath tub, and shower. The half bathroom 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.
It's ease of quick access and central location to everything on the beach. It has a quiet calm vibe, despite being two blocks from some of the best night clubs.
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 Citibike station is a great biking alternative for $5 every 30 mins. Uber operates in Miami Beach as well.
Other Things to Note
Please do not adjust the air conditioner without speaking to me first, especially do not adjust the AC after bedtime. Do not leave open any windows. Do not feed or let the Chihuahua dog outside. Do not leave any doors open or the dog will throw a party inside!!
*If you do not like dogs, I can not host you. My dog is very sweet and friendly and pairs best with people that are willing to show him affection. He does not match well with people who are stand offish or ignore him.
*If you are a smoker, I can not host you.
*No unauthorized / non paying guests. Do not bring other people into my apartment, or to the building to wait for you outside, no matter what.
*No music or loud noise after 11pm, this includes in your own private room as well.
*No use of the main bathroom for showering after I have gone to bed. (I go to bed early and using the main bathroom will disturb me - you have your own half bathroom with toilet and sink across from your room.)
*Self clean kitchen and dish use after every use.
*$125 key replacement cost,as they must be specially ordered.
*No sitting or hanging out on the building's front steps.
*Do not knock on the neighbor's door for any reason. Do not ring another neighbor's door.
*You must provide an accurate time of your arrival at the apartment so that I am not delayed in waiting on you, or be in clear direct communication so that we may both adjust our plans as required.
*In some cases, I will arrange to leave the keys for you to pick up and let yourself in. I normally do not return home from work until 7pm and am in bed by 11pm.
*You must respect my sleep schedule and do not make noise or leave lights on in the common spaces after I have gone to bed.
