Hi I am Nicoletta, I'm from Italy, Bologna and I'm a P.R. I love traveling and I'm looking forward to host you!
The apartment was great. It was very conveniently located near to the south beach, restaurants and a bunch of other tourists attractions. If we visit Miami again, we will surely consider (email hidden) (may be for a little lesser price).
We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights between Christmas and New Year's with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson (aged 2). On the plus side, the owner was very quick to respond to our emails and very accommodating, and the apartment was very nicely decorated. On the other hand, the apartment was not particularly well located for us and, while the photos were accurate (assuming a wide-angled lens), the description was a bit extravagant. The living room was not large by American standards (estimated at about 10 x 12), the common sun area on the pier was a very short decked path with a couple of pieces of furniture that were without cushions, and there was almost nothing of interest within easy walking distance. This was exacerbated by the fact that we arrived on a Friday night and the neighborhood is heavily Orthodox Jewish and what there was was closed until Saturday night. If you have a car and don't mind driving everywhere you want to go, then the location is fairly convenient. And if you are arriving by air, it is the first stop on the bus from the airport and a quick ride.
We stayed in the Bologna apartment for 4 days and found it to be convenient to buses or walking to the center area. Nicholetta was charming and helpful when we needed advice on using the bus system and finding restaurants, and we enjoyed our visit there. The bedroom was spacious and the bed comfortable, and we enjoyed the patio in the evening.
very nice appartement; rather big and with a lot of very individual details which make you feel at home. the kitchen is very well equipped and the bed is wonderful. nicoletta is a very friendly and helpful person, she gave us informations,an umbrella and a medicine when I felt sick. the appartement is in a green and qiet zone with a garden around, and the bus nr.20 brings you right to the center of the city. we conseil to have a break in the pasticceria "la fantasia del dolce" at via sarragoza; but it's no diet stuff...
I have stayed at Nicoletta's apartment for 4 nights during the first half of March of 2013. There were 4 of us - my wife, me, and our 2 teenage sons. Nicoletta was probably out of the country at that time but her "cleaning lady" was there and she was extremely reliable and helpful: she was always available by phone and text and she was on site almost every day since she had other apartments to take care of. Since we arrived late she waited for us for more than 2 hours! Many places will charge you a late arrival fee but not Nicoletta. This apartment is strategically located, especially if you have a car: it is close to South Beach and it is right at the route 195 causeway that connects Miami Beach to Miami. It is clean quiet, and fully equipped (except for beach towels but it is not really a beach apartment). Comfortable beds, good linens and towels, 2 bathrooms (one has a shower and another a bathtub with a shower). Plenty of street parking. Interestingly, it is very close to Talmudic University, so, for those who keep kosher, it is an ideal place. There are at least 2 glut kosher supermarkets and several kosher restaurants and cafes ((email hidden)) within walking distance. It was very easy to communicate with Nicoletta via email. I would suggest, however, to be worried about Airbnb itself because it did screw up several times, including telling me that Nicolleta has not accepted my offer when, it fact, she did. At the end everything worked out fine.
I would recommend this apartment for people who do not necessarily want to be in the middle of hubbub but close to everything. In my view, having a car is very important but if you like to take public transportation it is very close by.
Highly recommended! We were so impressed with Nicoletta's place, with her communication and the smooth check in and out. It's in a safe, quiet location but still relatively close to the beach and transport to central Miami.
The apartment is spotlessly clean and very modern (if, like me, you cringe at many of the chintzy interiors on Air BnB, this place is for you!). It's very spacious, and would accommodate 4 without feeling cramped.
There is a lovely communal boardwalk with outdoor seating that looks out onto the (email hidden) to relax on a warm evening. We'll be back for sure.
Nicolleta was very helpful and willing to show us where to eat, and even gave me a medicine because i was a bit sick.
The place is very quiet with a big garden, it would be amazing during Spring and Summer.
Highly recommend Nicoletta's place and her as a host!
Nicolette and Roberta were dligthful guests. Decisive and courteous communictaros, and when they arrived, wonderful fun, chatty and open. And perfect house guests!!! Hasta pronto!!!
