"South Beach has been called the American Riviera and an Art Deco Playground. Yet there's more than fine white sand and colorful buildings to South Beach's fantasyland of exuberant Deco architecture. South Beach offers an eclectic mix of world-class boutiques, galleries and stores. It's also a culinary hot spot for everything from gourmet to casual beachside cuisine. At night, South Beach comes alive with crowds ready to go out and have a world-class evening out.
South Beach is the Miami of postcards; the skyline of Ocean Drive has been featured on television what must be millions of times, and yes, the people are as beautiful and as they look on the tube. South Beach may be a world class partying hotspot, and that's not to be overlooked, but the daytime destinations on the island are as notable, and perhaps, more memorable, than the nightlife.
The clear blue water and the white sand beaches are a must-see for any Miami visitor; even for locals, the beautiful beach just doesn't get old. If you're taking a break from the sun, check out one of the many museums, shops or historic buildings in the area. Take a stroll down Lincoln Road for the best people watching in Miami or cozy up to a fancy bar with haute cocktails.
South Beach is an architect buff's paradise. The Art Deco buildings are an iconic part of the city and its "sun and fun" history. Soak it all in; there are certainly more than enough things to do in South Beach, Miami."

We recommend not renting a car if you are just staying in South Beach. You have access to buses and bikes that you can rent. Also the studio is centrally located and you can walk to many locations.
No parties, illegal drugs, pets or smoking allowed. Please place all garbage in bin and wash any dishes before you check out. Please do not try to open windows. The windows are sealed and if you try to open them they will not close correctly.
Gloria was very helpful in checking in with us and responding to our suggestions. The place is good for the budget conscious. Location is excellent. I would say there are some minor issues such as not having a "real" blanket ( more like a mattress cover), and leaking ac during our stay but other than that it was a good experience.
The room was exactly as described and it was all we needed. As planned, we spent very little time there! The neighborhood was nice and close to the beach, restaurants, and a decently priced parking garage (we rented a car). We walked anywhere we needed to go in SOBE! The front desk staff were nice, and we never had any trouble getting in and out of the building. We had an amazing trip and Gloria's place is perfect for low maintenance travelers.
I hate to write not nice review but should be honest. The apartment is not really good.
It's room in a hotel. Everything is old inside. Staying there was not a pleasure.
The apartment is need renovation.
The only were good are location and helpful host.
Great place to stay! A two minute walk from the beach! Central to everything you would need in South Beach! Great prices and the studio has more of a homely feel than if you were staying at a hotel! This is the second time I have stayed here and both times were just as amazing! I would recommend this studio to anyone seeking a nice place in the heart of South Beach!
Excellent location! The room is just a few blocks from the beach and from all the attractions. It is provided with beach towels, beach chairs, beach unmbrellas and even frisbees! The refrigertaor is large there is also a microwave. The lobby has free fresh coffee and tea all day :) This place is in an excellent locatio and it is ideal for a simple and frugal traveler. The only thing I was not very happy about is that even though the place was empty the day after my checkout, the owner was not flexible enough to allow me to do a late check-out but I was able to store my suitcases at the lobby for several hours and overall I had a great experience anyways. For the price, this place is perfect and I would definitively recommend it :)
Nice apartement! Exactly what you expect after reading the description! Gloria was helpful.
Listing description was very accurate. Gloria was very prompt in her communication and provided a great first airbnb experience.

About the Host, Gloria
Hi, we are two working professionals, I'm a LPN and work in Hospice and my husband Eurys is an psychiatric RN. We are both long time residents of Miami. We will be glad to give you suggestions for restaurants and fun things you can do around town. I recommend you download a couple of apps that will be useful. Waze for traffic, it gives you real time information on traffic and accidents, updated in real-time by users. Yelp for local restaurants. Also if you are an international traveler and you want to text us, WhatsApp is great for texting. If you will be using public transportation, familiarize yourself with routes on the Miami Dade Transit Website. Lyft and Uber are now in Miami! Use code EURYS2 when you download app to get free ride credit on Lyft (credit varies). If you need CAR RENTAL, look at relay rides website. If you choose to stay at one of our locations, you will get a good value for your money. We offer clean and very centrally located listings for a fraction of the cost of a hotel in the same area. However if you are looking for a luxury, this is not the place. We offer basic lodging for the money conscious traveler. Let us know your time of arrival time and we will definitely try our best to meet you there but we offer self-check in at most of the listings. If we are unable to meet you there we will give you detailed instructions and always are available via the messenger. I recommend every airbnb guest to read the full description of the listing and the reviews so you know what to expect and to make sure that the listing will meet your needs.
