The check in time is 4pm and check out by noon. Whenever is possible I can accommodate early check in and later check out.
But, I need that 4 hour window to clean and make apt comfy for the next guest.
No smoking, no parties, no pets, no noise after 10 pm. Thank you
Easy communication. Host did not meet us, instead there is a code to use to enter the apartment for the first time, later the key left in the apartment can be used. The lock is a little confusing, though. No problems with the apartment. It is not a luxury place, but clean and serves the purpose. Some previous tenants must have cooked some spicy food there, the scent was still lingering around, but got better later. Very reasonable choice if you want to spend some time in Miami Beach. But beware, if you have a car, parking can be a headache, the apartment does not come with parking.
The stay at Valaria's was outstanding in every way. This was my first time in Miami and her place was located in the perfect spot to see all.
Her Condo was clean and comfortable and is located inside a hotel so you get all the great amenities that a hotel provides at half the cost !!!
My family stayed in this apartment for 4 weeks. We liked that the apartment feels roomy, the A/C and the convenience of cooking your own food and to do laundry. It’s also close to the beach, bus stops in both directions and a Supermarket just a few minutes away.
It needs some improvements here and there, for example sheets were clean, but they had stains and was discolored and the glass door to the shower is leaning a little which makes the water able to leak out on the bathroom floor and it looks like the floor has taken damage of this.
The free Wi-Fi wasn’t working all the time; sometimes it would shut off for a while and come back on. During our last week it didn’t work at all. The reason behind it was that the Building Association, which the apartment is in, where changing companies and they had to rewire, so I hope it will work flawless from now on.
The pool is still out of service because the deck of the pool has caved in, so instead we went to Flamingo Park’s pool, which is pretty far away.
The first week we stayed there it was a leak in the ceiling of the kitchen, Valeria came by the day after to look at it while we where at the beach. The water had almost stopped leaking then, but she wanted us to let her know if it started again, which it didn’t. But I hope that the damage of the ceiling is fixed before anyone else is staying there. We felt a funky smell during our stay but didn’t think too much of it, but now when we are home, all of our clothes (even the new and never used), luggage and more smells like mold.
We ended up having a very nice stay even with the small mishaps and I would stay at one of Valerias apartments again.
This was a very unpleasant stay.
The accommodations themselves are clean and simple, which was fine. The challenge was that there was a malfunction with the automatic lock on the front door of this apartment and the unprofessional way in which the host handled this issue.
The lock was not working, and we spent a large portion of our first night there helping her troubleshoot the issue. She was not in town and did not have a backup plan. At one point, in the three hour episode, I personally walked to a local grocery store to buy new batteries for the lock with the hope that would resolve the issue.
Ultimately, she had a friend to come to the apt and bring us a backup set of keys. Again, this was three hours later after we had missed the majority of our evening plans and has not been treated very kindly by our host in the process.
As we were working through the details of this issue, which had to do with her defective property that made it unsafe for me to leave my belongings at the apt or feel comfortable staying there due to lack of security and the loud sound the malfunctioning lock was making, she was rude and accusatory.
By the end of our stay she had changed her tone, and her correspondence was more professional and appropriate. I would hope/assume this is how she typically treats her guests. I would not recommend this property.
We actually had a very unenjoyable stay at this place. There was a terrible smell permanently in the apartment which we noticed on arrival, possibly the cleaning agents used or indeed a cat or dog that has lived there and urinated repeatedly. There were ineffective blinds on the ONLY window in the apartment, unfortunately in the bedroom. We were woken every morning at 7am by the builders on the construction site overlooking the bedroom. The swimming pool was closed due to damage to the wall by the construction project. we had a never ending stream of small insects, ants/flies, the kitchen equipment generally was NOT CLEAN despite us paying a cleaning charge, the original quoted price of £81 on the site went up by 30% once we had booked cancellation charges would have been hefty too. Had we known how poor it was in there we would have made other plans. It's not as close to Lincoln mall as stated, there are no free sun beds on the beach associated with the building. Don't stay here unless you have to get up early everyday, even the weekend, the construction will not be finished for a long time. Thank you for the notice. Oh and the television is a waste of space too
Had a good experience staying at Valeria's place. The check in procedure was easy and the place was as described. The location was easy to find and convenient.
We were driving so were concerned that the apartment doesn't have parking but were lucky to find street parking close by. The meter needed to be 'fed' ever 3 hrs while we were parked there between 8am-6pm but you can do so remotely with an app from the parking authority from (website hidden).
Internet was good with instructions clearly posted but it appears there is no cable TV, it come through but real fuzzy.
Appliances are all modern and include a full sized washer / dryer. The beds were very comfortable and A/C worked well.
I really enjoyed my stay at Valerias. The Appartement is really close to the beach. It is clean and comfortable. Valeria is very friendly and helpfull we called her One Time and wrote a few Mails also we didn't meet she helps fast. I would Stay there again at anytime. Thank you !
