The Space

You'll be staying in the very heart of South Beach and within walking distance of every happening cafe, shop, gallery, restaurant and nightclub in the area.

Situated at 1100 Collins Ave, the apartment is in the historic Art Deco District. The Beach, Ocean Drive, Lummus Park and the Versace Mansion are only one block away!

My unit is almost twice the size of a standard hotel room, and the bedroom is separated from the living area. The A/C is brand-new having just been replaced January 2013.

There is a full kitchen including dishwasher and microwave and a sleeper sofa in the living room. You are provided with all linens, towels, etc. and there is no daily disturbance from room service.

Please be aware that Southbeach is the action-packed area of Miami Beach. There are people on the streets day and night.The apartment has special sound-insulating windows, so it is quieter than most hotels in the area, but Southbeach is not the place for a "peaceful beach vacation".

Rent includes all utility costs as well as free wireless internet, cable television and local calls. Cleaning fee includes the service of a property manager who you can call if you require assistance during your stay.

You should save yourself the cost of a rental car at this location, since you will find everything you need within walking distance. Taxis and public transit are readily available.

If you do bring a car, you'll find hassle-free parking at several public garages nearby for $20/day..

  • Prime location! Literally a walk away from the beach, shopping and clubs. Convenient store beneath and a dinner and burger king down the block. The heart of south beach, it was perfect for a vacation on a budget. The apartment comes with linens and towels, kitchen is supplied and ready to use if you decide to cook. Wonderful location for anyone trying to experience south beach.

  • i spend 3 weeks last july/august there at raphael's condo and it was great! great condo, great location!
    Raphael was very reachable if needed, he came to replace the internet access which was very good;, and he also put a new sofa which is very confortable to lay on.
    If you want to cook, you have everything you need too!

  • the apartment was good but there were cockroaches! We were three people and one of us had to sleep on the couch, but when we arrived and tried to expand the couch, he was broken! bed in the bedroom is not actually queen size and is a bit crowded for two people. We called Mark and next day he brought airbed and spray for cockroach, but it did not help and cockroaches were all 10 days of our stay, mainly in the kitchen and it really spoiled our stay.
    in general the condo is good and clean, there is everything you need, all kitchen stuff, all towels, bed linen. location is perfect and u just walk 3 minutes to the beach.

    Response from Raphael:

    The bed is queen size. Perhaps queen-size is different in other countries.. but we use queen-size fitted sheets and they fit perfectly.
    The building is regularly sprayed and checked for bugs. My property manager worked to help but in Miami bugs will be attracted into the unit if food is left-out.

  • This apartment exceeded our expectations! The location was awesome (2 blocks from the beach and short walking distance to restaurants, shopping, nightlife, etc). We would definitely stay here again next time we're in town. The apartment had everything we needed (bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, extra blankets, hair dryer, kitchen staples (like instant coffee, ketchup, salt, sugar, oil, etc,), dishes, glasses, cookware, etc., and an iPod doc. The price was such a great deal for a comfortable apartment in the heart of it all.

    Raphael and Mark were both also extremely responsive and wonderful to deal with. My boyfriend and I accidentally forgot an item in the apartment, and they were awesome about mailing it back to us.

    I highly recommend and look forward to returning!

  • When we arrived the air conditioner wasn´t working. The temperature inside the apartment was unbearable even though it was winter.
    The manager sent a repairman who personally said to me that the a/c unit had to be changed. The manager didn´t believe him and said he would send someone else. Nobody ever showed up. I asked him if he could get us some fans in the meantime as a temporary solutions but we never heard from him after that. Just had to bear the heat. It was hotter inside the apartment than out. We also had a constant battle with the bugs which I am sure is something common in old Miami Beach buildings. It was annoying. Being centrally located it was noisy outside. You are over a liquor store. Otherwise the apartment ( with a/c ) is ok. Clean if you keep it that way battling the bugs. Well located close to the beach and everything else. Fair price but I should (email hidden) for sleeping in a sauna. I would recommend it only with the a/c working.

    Response from Raphael:

    The previous renter (non-airbnb) left the unit in a complete mess (also attacting bugs into the unit) and never informed me that the A/C had stopped working. Most problems were resolved the first day, but it was not possible to the repair the A/C and a replacement was ordered. I was promised a quick replacement, but we experiecned delays due to the holidays (between Christmas and New Year's). Outside temperatures were cool during this period.
    The apartment now has a brand-new A/C. My apartment also has special double-glass windows, so it is quieter than most hotels in the area if these windows are kept closed.

  • El depto. está muy equipado y la unicación es la ideal. Lo único que no me gusto el estado general del edificio y la falta de limpieza en los pasillos. Pero el depto muy lindo y limpio!!

  • I loved the LOCATION! Right in the heart of SoBe & just 1 block away from the Beach. The apartment is VERY comfortable and nice. Raphael, who was overseas, and Mark (the manager) made sure I had everything I needed.
    THANK YOU!
