  • Sadly, our review is not positive. We rented this apt based on the positive reviews and while we don't like posting negative things, we felt an obligation to post this as a caution to potential renters. Our initial communication with the hosts was professional. The overall neighborhood is generally gated communities but this building is part of a complex that is not gated (which was clearly communicated) and there were were a few people coming and going that gave us the creeps. While there was nothing to actually point to, the building is older and run down but still nothing to warrant a negative review. There was a damp smell on entry, but at first glance the apartment was like the pictures; far from luxurious but a spacious apt in Miami at a good price. Once we settled in, things got worse. The linens looked old and as if it was inherited from someone's great grandparents. Lifting the bed revealed mattress covers that were filthy. The bathrooms were not thoroughly cleaned and shelves around the apt were very dusty. Once you get grossed out, there are many other similar signs that add to the discomfort, like opening cabinets and seeing dust coated items and onion skins in a vegetable bin from a previous guest. We paid extra for linen for the sofa beds which didn't come with comforters, and one of the bed frames was missing springs and the mattress was held up by cord, which didn't hold up, causing one of the corners of the mattress to sag. The worst part was that contrary to the description, the mattresses on all beds were extremely uncomfortable. Two of our children ages 14 and 13 woke up in middle of the night due to discomfort. It was so bad that we left early after one terrible night. We tried to resolve with the host but they were not sympathetic at the least, claiming they were just in the apartment and it was clean, the smell was likely due to carpet cleaning a few weeks earlier (that only made us suspicious that the smell was mold) and that the linen was the same as in their home. We ultimately had to resolve with Airbnb who was extremely understanding and apologetic. There were a few other issues, including one major one in the welcome email regarding instructions on what to tell neighbors when they ask you if your are renting. Bottom line, take into consideration that one reviewer suggests that you don't touch this apartment with a 10-foot pole.

    Response from Duysevi & Tony:

    Bruce is a first time user of airbnb and apparently probably did not have any idea of how this website works. We truly feel that this is a cheap and unprofessional way of trying to get a refund after spending the first night with no issues. All of a sudden, he mentions creepy people coming in and out, the place became dirty, the matresses had a problem and so on as you can read above. Honestly if I were to stay at a place that does not meet my basic standards, I would not spend one night at the place, and call the owners or airbnb immediately, which he did not- He had no problem spending the night. He checked in and emailed us that everything was fine and then all of a sudden they took off the next day without notifying us and they decided to complain after staying the night. He did not give us a chance to address any issues they might have had. Look... we are not perfect and nobody is and if he had called us and addresses any concerns we would have personally gone there to see what the issues were. But in reality none of the issues he mentions exist or are even issues. Being positive is the key to happiness and we are positive people that do not let any negative things affect us and if you read all the reviews we have had you can have a better idea of what kind of persons we are. So please don't let these comments stop you from booking with us as they are not true and we are always there to assist our guests like we have done in the past 3 years.

  • Cool place with a lot of things to do. Hosts were very funny and friendly. I highly recommend this place

  • It was a nice apartment inside. Clean, only annoying thing was we had to reorganize the entire place to fit everyone inside and during the day we didnt want to move everything back so it was an awkward setup and more of a sleeping cabin. It would be great for 4 people. Location wasn't the most appealing either altho it was right next to the water.

  • El lugar fue muy agradable y limpio, no tuvimos ningún inconveniente, salvo que el aire acondicionado no estaba funcionado, pero el clima estaba tan agradable que no nos hizo ninguna falta.
    Estaba bien equipado con utensilios de cocina, aspiradora y elementos de limpieza. Pudimos estar 5 personas adultas en el lugar sin inconvenientes.
    Creo que solicitare este apartamente en el futuro cuando regrese a Miami.

  • Excellent condition home, great furniture and great value!

    I would recommend it for long-term months-long sublets though, since we had to tidy the place up to its original place after a 3 day stay.

    A lot of glass around, so just be careful. I broke a piece of glass but I'm glad Duysevi & Tony were nice and helpful in helping to minimize my compensation!

  • A great apartment which is really recommendable!
    Sevi and Tony have welcomed my friend and me very spontaneously after we've had some problems with our previous apt. Both has been really nice to us and have left us a clean and very nicely furnished apt. We have been able to wash our clothes in a separate room and to use a community pool. Since we've had rented a car parking in front of the building was super useful for us (for free).
    I have felt very comfortable in the Apt. It was clean and tidy and after all the stress we've had it was just a dream! When I will fly back to Miami, I'll definitely take it into consideration to rent this apt again! Furthermore, we've been only two people using the apt. In addition, there is far more room for some more people!
    We've liked best the sweet little balcony from which one has a direct view to the pool. We've always had breakfast there in the morning. Among other things, it has been also very quiet in the apt block, so it has felt really undisturbed.
    I can only repeat: this apt is 100% recommandable!

    January 2012
  • Overall stay was good, Sevi answered all our questions, expect for one issue, there was no Air conditioning in the unit, which was required. Although she promised us to come and get started but no one came to do that. But anyway above it was a good stay for the price in Miami.

  • Thanks a lot for your (Justin Huage) help during our stay at this apartment Jan 24-Jan 30, 2011.
    A thorough major clean up of the apartment, and some important repairs, such as the screen door, entrance door, bedroom window, would improve the apartment tremendously.

    February 2011
  • The place was great and beautiful. Sevi was professional and responsive. Her instructions and guidance were very clear which made everything run smoothly during my stay. Internet access and parking were great. Everything was a hop, skip and a jump away. If you are looking for a nice and relaxing place to stay during your next visit, this host is definitely the one to look up. I am so glad she answered all my questions before i made my decision to stay at their apartment. Definitely worth it! I will recommend all my friends to this host. Thank you for everything. Looking forward to my next visit to Miami and will work with this host again!

  • Very good experience . Very clean and comfortable place. I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay.
