Fantastic condo for those who come in groups or families who want to be very close to everything! In an Art Deco building, internally refurbished to a good standard.
This is a great condo for those travelling with family and friends. Located just 5 blocks from the beach. All furniture in this condo is brand new.
There are two large bedrooms with 2 queen size beds and a small curtained living area with a sofa bed that sleeps 2. 3 tvs throughout with full premium cable channels, high speed wifi throughout.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooker, microwave, pans and saucepans , cutlery and plates. The second bedroom also has a fridge and an additional microwave cooker and a separate set of crockery. This room can be completely closed off from the rest of the condo and it has it's own bathroom with bath and shower and has its own entrance and separate set of keys.
The condo has air conditioning throughout, wood floors, good natural light, iron and ironing board in each room and hair dryer. We are constantly improving our condos. We have recently put in a new bath, toilet and sink in one of the bathrooms. We now have an ice making machine in the kitchen.
We are now offering free street parking for all new bookings between May and November. The parking permit allows you to park anywhere in zone 2 including directly outside the condo. Please mention the parking offer when booking to confirm.
Washer/dryers are located on each floor.
I am a very accommodating and always try and help my guests where ever possible however from April we have had to introduce a late check in fee. Normal check in anytime between 2pm -9pm. I will try and accommodate earlier check ins prior to 2pm if the condo is available. After 9pm there will be a cash on arrival charge of $50 until 1am and $100 after 1am. If arrival times are discussed prior to the booking I will do my best to waive this charge however for much later arrivals this is unlikely although the cost maybe reduced. If arrival time is not discussed prior to booking then it is unlikely the late check in cost will be waived.
The location was great since it was walking distance to everything, restaurants, whole foods, Walgreens... The Lincoln shops is a further walk but with the Miami weather time passes by pretty quickly.
We literally just needed a place to sleep so not much time was spent in the apartment but it was very spacious with the basics we needed. No noisy neighbors, sheets were clean, and the air worked great.
Only suggestion is to probably update the shower heads. The pressure was probably great but the stream of water was all over the place and uneven. Not a big deal though since we stayed for a couple nights.
The experience of stay at Harry's place was great! We were five friends from Taiwan and Spain, and we all enjoyed the comfy house and the nice environment. What's more, the responsibility and efficiency of the hosts just enhanced our living experience. There were no, if any, very little problem at first but then was solved very quickly. The hosts are ALWAYS reachable.
We felt very welcome, and Harry was very quick to response to any questions we had. Both he and Andrea was very helpful, and even when the oven didn't work, Andrea brought us a small one within half an hour, and we could eat a late dinner at the condo.
The condo looked exactly like the pictures, and he had even left us a bottle of wine when we arrived.
Good location, within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping.
Only one negative thing to complain about, and that was that during several nights we woke up when we could hear noises from the neighbours coming home late at night, and then a dog barking for a very long time inside the house. That was annoying.
Overall a good stay, and good price. Would recommend!
While the communal areas when you enter the building could use a spruce up, the apartment itself is great!We had a fantastic week staying here over New Years 2014. harry and lona were very helpful with anything that we needed during our stay and apartment was clean and functional! Great location for walking everywhere in South beach, only 10 minutes from beach and whole foods and Walgreens within a few minutes walk.
We stayed from dec 22 to dec 26, 5 people.
The location is awesome, it's like 4 blocks to the south beach, what is great. Harry gave to us a parking permit what help to us a lot. At the reception we received a bottle of wine, that was nice. We had problems with the Internet connection but Harry solve it in just minutes, what is a demonstration of the excellent services they provide.
I don't recommend to have 6 people in the apartment, the sofabed is not enough for two people and honestly it's not comfortable.
The rest of the apartment is great, good beds, good kitchen, etc.
Thanks so much for your honest report. We take all comments very seriously. Unfortunately we don't have any control over common areas and I think the smell you are referring to was in the main building and caused due to the managing agents treatment for bugs.
We also appreciate your positive comments regarding our responsiveness and our comfort in the condo, we actually just replaced the sofa bed. We do have an additional cot bed in the property which allows for 4 separate sleeping areas.
Thank you so much for staying, we really value your comments and your custom.

English guy who is starting a company in Miami. Funny and great fun. (well i think im funny anyway!) i am very easy going, love to travel (what I do in my spare time!) enjoy movies, clubbing and wine bars. I enjoy good food and nothing is better than eating out a cool restaurant with great views! My favorite food is contemporary fusion but the list is really endless. I love all types of music but in particular, club, rap and dance. Crazy busy with work but always love to have a reason to have time away from it!
My life's motto is live everyday as if it's your last and never regret anything. I have lived in cape town, south Africa and Sydney Australia and of course, central london and now in Miami. I am always looking for the best things in life.
Btw. My name is Hayden but I go by the name of Harry (its confusing!)
