Guest Access

this is an offer for this one specific bedroom. not for use of the whole apartment... Just making sure to point this out... everything is very easygoing if we all know in advance what the restrictions are (such as: no kitchen access included, although there is coffee and tea in the building in the morning).

  • It's doesn't get any better than here. Exceptional property, with an outstanding experience, all round. Stayed an extra day unexpectedly, purely due to how impressed we were with the experience we had the day before. Couldn't ask for a better place for the price, and Tomas is an exceptional host! Definitely plan to visit again.

  • The best way to sum up this place, is perfection. Hands down one of if not the best air bnb experiences I've ever had. Tomas, is definitely one of the most hospitable and interesting people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with. His 11th floor unit gives you an almost 360 view of all of Miami. The front overlooks the bay and south beach, while the back overlooks the entire Miami area. Everything is top notch and we saw one of the most amazing sunrises ever, from the front balcony which is huge. Then finished the evening on the back balcony connected to our room, and watched a stunning sunset. The building itself and all of the facilities has got to be one of the most luxurious I've experienced in Miami. When you arrive you are greeted with super friendly valet and you just have to send a text to have it ready whenever you need to leave. The entire property was designed by Lenny Kravitz, so needless to say...everything is top shelf, extravagant, and classy. The front and rear pools are more like 5 star resort lounges with beds, cabanas, staff, grills, fire pits, and flat screen tv's, etc. There is a suana, and a game room with multiple in-wall flat screen tv's w/ wii and play station consoles. To top it all off, Tomas was kind enough to suggest we watch the Miami heat game in the club house. Hands down, most impressive clubhouse facility I've ever seen. I've traveled most of the world and have been in real estate for 6 years. Nothing compares. Multiple mind blowing lounge areas, kitchens, and family style dinning rooms. A fully stocked bar with wine, beer, sodas, and water. The main lounge houses a state of the art 100+ inch HD flat screen and the room opens up to a massive balcony overlooking the bay and Miami. Not only did we get to watch the heat win in style, we got to watch it sharing a massive couch with other guests, including Lebron James's mother! Apparently she lives in the building we later found out while casually talking to her, and not aware of it for most of the game! For the price it would be near impossible to find a better place to stay, location, and over-all experience. Tomas is also a world traveled, highly respected photographer. The unit is loaded with amazing work he has done over the years and everything is purchasable upon request. I plan to purchase a piece myself, he had in his entrance. I will undoubtedly plan on staying again, in the near future. My reservation was super last minute as well. Out of 10 other requests I sent out. He was the first to respond, give me the details and had me checked-in, with a full tour of entire property, and keys in hand. All in less than 2 hours. Flawless experience. I host several of my own properties in...

  • Our stay at Tomas place was just great. The apartment is very clean, neat and exactly as described on the website. The views of Miami are amazing and the room size very comfortable for two people. There are many restaurants close to the area and driving to Miami beach is just 15 mins. away (with little traffic). The building has two great pools, a gym and a space where you can relax, read, etc...I don't know if the A/C was working or not. We really didn't need it, we just used the fans on the bedroom. But if you're going during summer time, just ask Tomas before hand. Tomas was very helpful and laid back. We will definitely come back to his place in the future.

  • I was in Tomas apartment a long weekend. I was very comfortable and I specially would like to thank Tomas for being so flexible with my check-in and check-out times, as I was flying at nights.
    The place has public transport close and a 20 min. walk to an AVIS car rental. You can also take an S bus to go to Miami Beach.
    The internet was very fast too. The pool was nice but I did not use it. If I return again to Miami, I'll check Tomas' option again.

  • The room was as pictured: gorgeous! Tomas was very communicative & helpful, and though we only were able to chat for a few minutes at the end of our short stay, he was friendly & gracious. Thank you for sharing your space with us!

  • Wonderful apartment complex and room. Tomas was a very good host. First time using airbnb after getting over the initial awkwardness of feeling like an intruder in someone elses place its fantastic.

  • This room is absolutely amazing! The pictures looked already fantastic but when you get in the apartment... it is so much better than I expected! I was speechless and would recommend every person to stay there! Tomas is a great host and I hope to come back one day!
    Thanks Tomas, we had a wonderful time!

  • The extraordinary good experience with Tomas began directly after asking via airbnb: He replied in almost no time (2 minutes I guess), and his briefing was so clearly than even a Miami rookie like me was able to arrive fast, easy and safe (with public transportation!).

    Tomas (who speaks fluently at least german, english and spanish) is a sympathetic, respectful und very helpful person – interested and interesting. He explained the miracles of his home (a friendly and very special apartment house) and "provided" me with useful information about his neighborhood. Thanks again for all the connectors and cables I forget to bring from Europe ;-)

    The modern furnihed room with private bath room itself was perfect for my three days working stay: In the 11th floor, hence particularly bright und quiet, with a brillant view (not to Miami Beach though) to kneel down - and (to state only the things I used): WLAN, pool, suitable to swim, jacuzzi.

  • My friend and I stayed for just one night. It was a perfect location. Tomas was nice and the room was comfortable with an amazing view. The free valet parking was helpful. A very nice alternative to a hotel, I would stay again.

About
photographer. the art hanging on the walls in the apartment is - hope it doesn't sound too self-aggrandizing - all my own visuals. extraordinary moment for each year for the past ten: burning man (2014 will be year #11). born in prague, grew up in buenos aires, cologne, frankfurt, munich... i love living in miami. for many reasons, the daily sunrise views being one of many. the dynamic evolution of miami in the time i've been here, since 2002, delivers many of the others. the view from my balcony one more... more about me on the obvious social media page under tomasloewy or on my website.
