I speak French and Spanish fluently , German just enough to get around : ) and will be glad to help you with anything during your stay in Miami. i work in corporate tourism wich gives me access to all tourism activities and interest in Miami.
the good point about staying on the bay side of Miami Beach is that you can park a car if you want to rent one,
You avoid the craziness of the beach side but still you ARE in South Beach!
Gym and parking are NOT Free
Me and my wife had a wonderful mini vacation at Vero's south beach apartment; the property is located at one of the most desired residential buildings in the beach with stunning ocean views; (SUNSETS AT THE BALCONY ARE TO DIE FOR). The apartment is very comfortable and fully furnished; small convenience store IN the building where you can buy subs, drinks, and they open really early and close late. Valet parking available for $22 every 24-hours or you can park off the property for free, we valet and it was cool and convenient.
We rented the condo for 12 days on October 2013. The condo was as described on the info sheet. However, there were few elements that unpleased us once we got there. There was rust on the side of the fridge, moisture on the bath curtain, some pieces of the vertical blinds were missing, unwashed plates and unwashed frying pan in the cupboards...Despite the fact that Vero paid for the cleaning, we think that it was not properly done. We found dust on the living room's floor and cigarette butts on the balcony.
Positive elements that we found is the nice pools and great view from the balcony. The localisation of the condo is good. There is a brand new washing machine in the condo.
We were disappointed with the general condition of the condo. We communicated with Vero to leave earlier and she agreed to accommodate us. She answered promptly and professionally. Even though she lives in New York, she manages with her partners living in Miami when needed.
The reservation was canceled 172 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I had an amazing stay. The Apt was perfect, and the host was so nice! I would with out a doubt book same place again.
Its was really more like 3.5 stars.
Miami was wonderfu and 5 stars all the way and The condo is at a nice location for bay side of south beach. It was comfortable. I did make a reservation for what it's listed as with a balcony and it wasn't mentioned to me until I got "updated" photos a few days before that it did not have a balcony although it was listed as having one. They were helpful and somewhat flexible on check out due to my flight. Also you do have to pay for Valet daily/hourly which is fine but never mentioned web when I spoke with then about parking. You also only get one swipe key to enter gate and front of building which makes it hard to enter when you do have multiple people is something to keep in mind.
Take the time and review the itemized list left with the condo. We contacted host after noticing several items listed that were stated as vein there and checked off. They confirmed it had indeed been an oversight, but take the time to avoid any discrepancies or additional charges. Bring your own toilet paper too, there wasn't any there, we stayed a week and I went to whole foods to get groceries and regular house supplies. Just come prepared! The kitchen is nice to cook some meals in as well.
Overall it was a comfortable experience, the pools nice and the hosts were friendly. It was a great spot to navigate south beach from for the first time especially if the whole scene on ocean drive seems a bit much to commit to although I do look forward to staying at other great locations I came across now that I have visited.
