The Space

Private room in charming historic house close to Lincoln Road on South Beach. Beautiful architecture, high wood-beam ceilings and eclectic decor in Art Deco South Beach. The bedroom has a queen-size double bed, 42" LED TV with Netflix, wifi, access to full kitchen and living area with large flat panel TV, cable, computer and big comfy couch, and bathroom, of course as well as FREE PARKING! Since parking here in South Beach is a nightmare. There is a big Grill also available in case you want to have a BBQ but please clean after use. Bathroom is shared and always kept very clean. House has a nice terrace facing the Flamingo building. Just a short walk to the bay with amazing views of Downtown Miami. Located just one block away from Famous Lincoln Road, shops, restaurants, clubs, bars and our sunny beaches.

The house is shared with me, Karla and my daughters, or at times, other airbnb guests. They are very good girls & respectful and also I choose my guests very carefully to make sure that everything goes well.

The neighborhood is one of the best, very safe, walking distance to everything. The area is beautiful and tranquil, yet conveniently close to the action. I promise you guys will have a great time here. Perfect for people watching, exploring the beaches, shopping and partying.


The house is easily accessible by public transportation and highway, and has parking available as I mentioned. Taxi stand on the corner has taxis stationed 24/7 for your convenience. Deco bikes are also available across the street for crushing the beach inexpensively and sightseeing. Regal Cinemas located just two blocks away on Lincoln and Alton Road.

This room is perfect for travelers who would like to enjoy Miami and have a comfortable home. Smoking area is on the terrace where you can also have a nice cocktail and relax.

Guest Access

Guests have access to their private bedroom, shared bathroom, kitchen, living room, porch area and parking.

Interaction with Guests

Me and my daughters live in the home along with our new Labradoodle puppy, Mia. You may or may not see us throughout your stay as we all have busy schedules, even the dog. Mia is kept in the other bedroom and is a well behaved hypo-allergenic breed. No barking.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is very safe and walking distance from Lincoln Road and the beach, shops, restaurants, bars, clubs & even the movies.

Getting around

The South Beach Local takes you around the beach for just .25 cents a ride, runs on West Avenue thru Washington Avenue. Other public buses to Downtown, malls, etc are just $2.25 per trip. Decobike station and taxi stand just outside the home for your convenience.

  • Karla es una excelente persona!.. muy muy amable con nosotros! nos permitio quedarnos en su apartamento que quedaba muy cerca de la playa.
    Su casa es muy linda y super comoda.
    Estaba todo perfecto; limpio, luminoso, bien ubicado, y con todas las comodidades!

  • Ich kann nur sagen: bucht lieber was anderes. Die Wohnung war staubig und ungepflegt.Der Charme des Hauses ist uns irgendwie entgangen.Die Gastgeberin ist erst aufgetaucht als wir uns über die Reinlichkeit der Wohnung bei ihrer Tochter beschwert haben.Dann war sie uneinsichtig und hat uns rausgeschmissen.Alles andere auf Englisch...
    Karla and me do have different perceptions on tidiness.When trying to talk to her she refused to "clean again" and asked us to go as my attitude was unacceptable in her house although I did not demand more than airbnb requests from the hosts in their (website hidden) least she offered to return the complete amount for the stay incl.the night we stayed there.Happy about that but still I cannot recommend it as from my perspective the house is not matching the description.

  • Great location and a having a parking spot was extremely nice (as parking nearby is difficult and busy). The house is just a short walk away from Lincoln rd mall and a walk, bike ride, or quick taxi ride to the beach.

  • Tres bon sejour chez karla. La chambre correspond a la description. Tres bonne situation. Karla est accueillante et tres sympathique. Nous y retournerons avec plaisir.

  • When you arrive to SOBE you don't expect a jewel of an old Spanish house with garden, high roofs and very old and nicely maintained floors.
    If than the spice of Karla and her ladies is added you end up in one of the best places to be.
    Perfectly located to blocks away from Lincoln Rd., walking distance to the infra costal and quick in laundry, super market and the local baseball arena, with one word: gorgeous !!!

  • This house is a beautiful historic building, located in a relatively quiet area on walking distanche of Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive. Strong points are the location, the free parking on the premises, the beautiful living room and the lovely owner. The bedroom is nice. The bathroom is sober but decent.

  • Super cute House! Karla is such a nice lady and we loved our stay at her house.
