This quiet corner unit at the Alden in Miami Beach is equipped with a double bed, bathroom with full shower, kitchenette, flat screen with cable TV.
You're just steps to the Atlantic Ocean and the sands of Miami Beach and just a 15 minute walk to bustling Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive. The Alden is adjacent to Indian Creek with nearby canoe and kayak rentals and a Miami Beach DecoBike rental is one block away.
Miami Beach buses stop at the corner and will take you to the north beaches and Aventura Mall or to South Beach and downtown Miami.
The Airport Flyer bus (150) comes directly from Miami International Airport and stops at the building, for only $2.50 each way.
Enjoy the sun, surf and sand of Miami Beach just steps away.
*Note: January, 2014. Because of construction at an adjacent property, the swimming pool is not in use for the time being.
The neighborhood includes several restaurants serving Italian and Cuban cuisine. A grocery store and beach shop across the street will provide amenities for your stay. But the best part of the neighborhood, is Miami Beach, just steps away.
There is convenient taxi service along Indian Creek Rd. as well as several bus lines which stop at the corner. A Deco Bike rental is just one block away.
Chris's place is a basic studio apartment as described. No surprises. If you have a car to park, it can get tricky. You need to park in public paid parking spots that are free 6 PM - 8 AM, Other times you need to pay $1/hour with max. limit of 3 hrs. It can be pain if you want leave the car for whole day. The apt. is located 2-3 blocks from the beach, and 15 blocks or 30 min. walk to the Ocean Blvd (Art Deco Area).
Check in and check out is no problem. We enjoyed our stay at Chris's place, and I would use it again if we visit South Beach again. He is very quick to respond if you have a question or comment.
We spent one week in Miami and in Chris' Apartment and had a really great time. Everything you need is within walking distance or just take one of the buses right in front of the Alden. The only downside is the missing Wifi in the room. The beach is just two blocks away, not crowded at all, and if you´re into kitesurfing, bring your gear. Most of the time great conditions for 9m-12m. Unfortunately there´s no place to rent from nearby, at least I couldn´t find one. If you want to go to Downtown Miami, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, The Keys or the Everglades, and you definitely should ;), I recommend renting a car. There are a lot of buses in Miami but don't expect them to be on time. Getting home from Coral Gables took us more than 3 hours, most of the time spent waiting.
All in all a fabulous time and I´d definitely rent this apartment again anytime.
The studio is pretty comfy, and it's just a block away from the beach, and near to south beach miami nightlife. The area is safe and nice, and If your plans are just to spend the whole day enjoying miami, this is a wonderful place to be.
A clean, quiet studio close to the beach (a 5-minute walk), supermarket, and a few restaurants. Headed to SoBe or NoBe? No problem, there's a DecoBike station a block-and-a-half away which will get you to either neighborhood in about 10 to 15 minutes. And should you need an inexpensive way to get to and from MIA, the Airport Flyer bus (#150) stops right in front of the property. Super convenient!
