About this listing
Hello, We are renting out this studio apartment here in beautiful Miami Beach. The design is identical to our couple other ones in the same building giving away that clean pure fresh feeling.
We just got done renovating every single aspect of the unit. We basically tore it down to the cement walls and floor and then rebuilt it with functionality and design in mind.
This unit (along with our other three) offers FREE PARKING which is hard to find in Miami Beach.
Please read our 100% positive reviews. Also, If you need multiple units please let us know.
You are not renting from a company. This is our unit and we make sure every single detail is perfect for your stay.

You are renting directly from the owners (my wife and I), and there is no daily housekeeping. We will leave you plenty of fresh towels and if you need anything else please let us know. We will do our best to accommodate early check ins or late check outs. It really just depends on availability.
The location of the apartment is amazing. It on the BEACH side of Collins avenue in millionaires row in Miami Beach . It is about a 10 minute drive to south beach as well as a 20 minute drive up to Aventura shopping mall. There are numerous buses and taxis always available on Collins ave since it is the primary artery connecting North Beach to South Beach. There is also access to the Miami Beach public bike system called Deco Bike.
To access the beach, you only need to take the elevator to LL (Lower Level) and walk past the pool and you are on the beach. There are no streets to cross or ways to get lost which makes it very safe for children
The most amazing part of this apartment is that even from the
amazing 180 degree views of the turquoise water you can occasionally see fish swimming below.
NO SMOKING - this is first and foremost
Dont make too much noise and bother the neighbors
No Animals (we might make an exception for a very small dog)
Keep it clean, we wont be there to monitor it but we will trust you
Please do not open the windows. It is usually pretty windy and the humid air causes damage to interior of the building.
Be flexible with checkout and checkin times. If the apartment is clean available early in the morning then you can check in early. Likewise, if nobody is checking in until the following day, you can stay later. Just please be flexible.
I don't know where to begin with this review. All I know is that this stay has been one of my favorite/comfortable visits yet. You can't ask for more when you stay with Shane and Maru.
Shane and Maru were extremely helpful with us. Each detail of this apartment was thought for your convenience and comfort. The location is perfect, valet parking easy to use and the beach in front of the building is good.
The building is old fashioned and not too preserved, clashing with the quality of the apartment, but this definitely is not a problem.
Congrats Shane and Maru, you were a perfect hosts!
This is a lovely, simple apartment -- directly on the beach, with an extraordinary view. Shane and Maru were exceptionally communicative, responding to even the most basic questions within minutes. It all made for a very sweet, if too-short stay.
De l'arrivée au checkout, tout est parfait, notre hôte avait même préparé un guide rien que pour moi ! Se réveiller avec une vue sur l'océan à 180degres , le top !
Seul bémol , l'appartement est au nord de Miami beach, Uber ou taxi obligatoire pour faire le moindre mouvement . Second bémol, l'immeuble est très bien géré mais un peu "populaire ", beaucoup de bruits. Pour la piscine, il faut être joueur ... Beaucoup de monde
El departamento perfecto! Junto con la atención de Shane and Maru, el edificio en remodelación con algunos detalles no muy lindos ! Igualmente la pasamos muy bien!!
Shane and Maru's 15th floor condo was superb. Their instructions were easy to follow and our check-in was seamless. They left a couple of maps for us for reference as well as suggestions for sunset viewing, restaurants, lounges, and spas. Beach access was incredibly easy and even during a major holiday week the beach was not crowded at all and we almost felt as though we had our own little private beach. The condo was far enough away from South Beach to be out of the hustle and bustle, but close enough of a drive to be able to enjoy it. The view was breathtaking from our window and was a joy to wake up to every morning. Comfortable bed, large TV, clean and beautiful. They even left us some drinks in the fridge to enjoy. Great place, would definitely recommend to anyone looking to visit Miami Beach.
This place is more breathtaking than the photos convey. The most beautiful beach and warm green sea lay just 50 metres from the building. The apartment offers an absolutely incredible panoramic view, it's clean, comfortable and has everything you need. The valet and parking was a little slow and confusing but it was very busy when we arrived and this is no ordinary accommodation. If you are looking to be wowed when staying in Miami and want 5* hotel level but at half the cost look no further. There is no better place.

About the Host, Shane And Maru
We are Shane and Maru, young newlyweds that moved from California (Shane) and Buenos Aires, Argentina (Maru) to Miami Beach about 3 years ago. We work here, live here and play here.
We now have a little business renting out a few identical apartments as vacation rentals. The name of our company is called:
Pure Miami Beach Apartment Rentals
When we have free time we love traveling and spending time in The Bahamas with our little poodle Yoshi. I (Shane) work with Apple Computer and when I have free time love to spearfish and im learning how to fly. Maru is a painter and a visual merchandiser at the most exclusive boutique in Miami beach.
While we both have regular day jobs we are usually available if you have any questions either in English, Spanish or a little Italian.
Thanks, and we look forward to welcoming you to Miami Beach.
