We had an amazing 2 months, February and March, at Marisela's condo. We were met promptly, welcomed, given a tour and made familiar with the property. The condo is exactly as pictured in the ad. Most importantly it was very clean. This condo has tons of windows so is very bright and also very spacious for a one bedroom. Having a second half bath was also a marriage-saver. There is a washer and dryer on each floor and never once did I have to wait to use one. Since the unit faces north, it gave us both a view of the ocean and a smaller view of the canal/city from the balcony, which is beautiful at night. It's in a wonderful location, close to 4 hotels including Fontaine Bleu. If you enjoy walking, you can walk nearly anywhere. It's about a mile to the Publix supermarket and local restaurants. There is also bus service right outside the door, but it requires patience as buses can be sporadic. There is a designated parking spot so I would really suggest having a car if walking or public transportation isn't your bag. We just didn't want to bother with driving or finding parking and were very happy with our choice.
We always take into consideration that we will never find perfection, not even in our own home. This condo is an absolutely fabulous value for what you get. Do be aware that the building is older as are many in the area. But we loved that it is not huge like some of the buildings and it is beautifully maintained. The kitchen is not gourmet, but perfectly adequate for making breakfast and light meals, and who wants to cook when on vacation??? We had all the appliances we needed, the frig appeared to be new and the stove was clean and worked just fine. There is a dishwasher, however we never used it as it was just the two of us.
Lastly, the owners were so very helpful and just really lovely people. Thank you Marisela (and Marisela) and we hope to see you again soon.
The building is an older building but pretty well maintained. We stayed there for about 2 months and wouldn't really suggest a long term stay here. It's a good place if you are planning to stay only a few nights for vacation. The vents in the unit are completely covered in mold and dust. You can find mold on some of the walls, bathroom and even the bedroom lamp shade. Other than that, the place is kept pretty clean. The wifi doesn't work well. So if you are planning to work, you should make other arrangements. We ended up getting another place. There also isn't an iron, no mail key and some appliances need to be updated because they don't work properly. We like the neighbourhood have been there plenty of times. Marisela the host was easy to get a hold of and kind. I forgot to leave the parking pass on my departure and had to make arrangements to deliver it the following days.
Nancy, I am so sorry to read such a negative review. I will pass the mold and dust feedback to the cleaning lady. I would have appreciated an offline feedback on the appliances so I can check which are the things not working. I was in my apartment right before you and for instance all stoves were working; once you left only 3 were working. Nevertheless, we tried to be kind offering solutions for your mail box inquiry but now I see it was insufficient for you. Finally, noy sure on what kind of job you have but wifi has always served my needs (working at a multinational well known Company and never suffered connectivity issues). Since feedback is a gift I will use on my favor to better suit other guests. Thanks anyway.
Really enjoy our time in miami beach and marisela apt. Thanks also to Marisela mom who greated us and was nice and helpful. Apartement is clean and location is right on the beach. Building is not new but is very well maintained and Kitchen would benefit from a fan over the stove and with no bbq poolside or on common area i think it would be better for cooking with a stove fan. Marisela is easy to deal and we thank her for our stay. Boat show week traffic was a bit tough but seeying all those mega yatch and visiting a few was a fun experience.
The place is very nice, the location is very convenient and it has a nice view to the ocean, the kitchen is very well equipped and everything in it is in good condition, the owners are very kind, we will defiantly come back!
Very nice appartment on the first beach line with balcony having ocean view and situated in the very quite district.
Waterpool in the garden and direct access to beach.
The beach is not overcrowded in contrast with many beach hotels, it is very pleasant to have a rest on it.
The first several meters of the ocean are filled with stones, but it is possible to find passes with the sand, the water is very warm(April).
Found for the vacation exactly what wanted to find.
Everything was OK. The location was excellent, at the beach side with swiming pool and private parking lot (very important in miami). Thank you very much
