This is a very cute modern one bedroom beach apartment on Key Biscayne. Great for couples or even families coming to vacation in Miami and enjoy the beach. You have access to a private beach which is one block away from the condo building (key provided). The apartment is completely new and modern. This exclusive island has many fabulous restaurants, cafes, shops and groceries which you will have at walking distance from your condo. The apartment is on second floor and faces a gorgeous street lined with Palm trees.
You are a 10 minute drive from South Beach, Downtown/Midtown Miami and Art District. I can also pick you up from the airport and take you to the condo.

This place is a small condo in Key Biscayne about two blocks from the beach.
-- affordable for this area
-- short walk to a pretty beach
-- very short walk to grocery store. We especially liked this since we did most of our cooking in the condo. We were not at all impressed with the food scene on Key Biscayne. This is clearly a resort town and so you can get the same food you get in any resort town and you are going to pay the same high price (with service fees included, naturally) that you would in any resort town. That was a disappointment. The kitchen in the condo was small, but it absolutely met all of our needs and we cooked many great meals there.
-- cool park nearby for kids
-- walk to one state park, drive to another. These parks are worth the visit...quite lovely. We drove all the way through Miami and beyond to visit the Everglades Shark Valley one day. Nothing we saw out in the Everglades was as lovely or biologically diverse as the sights right there in Key Biscayne.
-- it is not directly on the beach (but that is part of why it is affordable)
-- the pool is pretty small and not too impressive
-- the condo is small. It would be perfect for a single person or a couple. We brought our two daughters with us. We are quite a tight-knit group, so we were fine with it... but it did feel very close. It would not be a good place to visit with friends or extended family.
As a host, Lina is great. She was kind, informative, available, and responsive. Her photos and description on her site give an accurate description. We would rent from Lina again for sure.
For those who want to stay in the quiet and adorable area of Key Biscaine, Lina´s place is a very nice and cozy apartment, well decorated and with everything you need to a pleasent stay. Located in a nice neighboorhood, with beautifull beach at a walking distance and shops/restaurants just accross the street.
Lina was a nice hostess, who supported us with everything we needed before and during the stay.
We sure want to go back.
We loved our stay at Lina's. She was extremely helpful and responsive, more than hoped for. The apartment itself was nicely furnished, very clean, so comfortable ( great bed, linens and pillows ), complete kitchen with utensils, and there was even shampoo and conditioner. There was easy access to the uncrowded beach, a slight walk to the entrance. The apartment was very convenient to stores, restaurants and market, and all were just a very short walk. We would definitely stay here again. Our thanks to Lina.
We had a great time staying at Lina's property in Key Biscayne! Everything was exactly as described - impeccably clean, safe, and convenient to shops and restaurants. Lina was responsive, helpful and open to questions. Key Biscayne is a great place to stay - home of the Miami Open, Crandon Park Beaches, and great views of the Miami skyline. Thanks, Lina! We'll be back!
Lina was a great host. The apartment was well equipped and the a/c was powerful enough to keep it chilled during extremely high temperatures. Lina responded superquickly when we had a little emergency (forgot something in the apt after leaving) and helped us right away.
You get a transponder key to access a private beach and this alone is worth the stay.
Lena's place was very clean and comfortable for 2 people. Good location for shopping, close to beaches and parks. We enjoyed our stay for the month of February.

My husband and I stayed at Lina's Key Biscayne property for 29 nights, nearly the entire month of January 2015. It was wonderful and we had an absolutely lovely time. The weather was nearly perfect (only 1/2 day of rain during the whole month) and the apartment was as cute as a button and we were very comfortable there. It was the perfect starting point for the various trips we took to Key Largo, Key West, the Everglades, South Beach, and other places. The island itself is pretty quiet, although there was construction going on across the street when we were there. Lina had warned us of this beforehand and it was not a problem.
The apartment is convenient to the supermarket, pharmacy, and many restaurants. One of our favorites was the Cantina at the Ritz Carlton, right on the beach. This was easily accessed through the private entry beach park and a short walk up the beach. Another was the nearby French bakery, which was a great source for perfect croissants for breakfast. Crandon Park is SPECTACULAR and we spent a great deal of time riding our bikes at Crandon Park and enjoying the beach. Make sure you check out the old zoo there - there are many magnificent birds there and it is a neat place. Another place not to be missed is the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. We also spent a great deal of time at the beach there, as well as riding bikes there. There are two restaurants in the park, which makes it a nice lunchtime destination.
The apartment itself was cute and homey and comfortable. It is perfect for two people, but would be tight for more unless perhaps they were small children. One thing that was a lifesaver for us was the large walk-in closet. Key Biscayne was the first leg of a three-month trip, so we had a lot of stuff with us to store and the closet came in very handy.
Lina was a helpful but unobtrusive hostess. She was very responsive when we had a question or concern, but otherwise she left us to our own devices, which was great. We hope to stay again next year.
Hi there! My name is Lina and I am a mom of a pair of vivacious twin girls. We live in Miami Shores and rent a cozy condo in Key Biscayne. We love to enjoy Miami and the beautiful beaches and love to host people who appreciate our city as much as we do.
