I had tough times deciding if I had to review this place or not, but I decided to do it. If I had read the truth about this place, I would not have booked it. So here is my story.
That was NOT a good experience. Yes, the room is spacey. Yes, the location is perfect. William (the host) ignores lots of your messages and answers only on some. The place had NO Internet, which I did not notice and expected to be kindly informed since I booked the room for 3 months. So I had to install the cable Internet and buy a router. Another thing which was awful and every single guest in the apartment noticed and hated were ROACHES. They are everywhere in the apartment! Pest comes every month, we sprayed ourselves, bought catchers - NOTHING helped. William kept saying that "it's Miami Beach, you know". However, my friends pay less for better apartments and they don't have roaches. Next thing - THERE IS NO PRIVACY. I knew it was a shared apartment, but from the ad I got a feeling that he was going to be there. I had no idea that every week random people would come, sometimes there were 5 people in a tiny apartment. I was asking for a lock (yes, rooms do not even have locks) from the first week and got it with lots of arguments on my last month only. The doors have glass windows, so there is always light coming through. Plus the walls of the apartment are so thin that you would hear every single sound coming from your neighbors. My room was the coldest in the apartment since it's the biggest, so there was always a problem with A/C - you cannot turn it off cause it makes a terrible sound, so we had to cover it with paper. To sum it up, it could be a good option to stay for a couple of days, but to those easily disgusted and looking for comfort - I would pay more for a better place. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR LONG TERM STAYS.
The reservation was canceled 26 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This apartment is a very good value for Miami Beach, however what is listed on the web, it is not how the things exactly are. There are small cockroaches and the bed sheets weren't clean. There is not any internet connection. There are not wardrobe (it doesn't say), or anything to leave your clothes, instead there is a coach on the right of the bed. So if the room is small, now it is even smaller, but you can leave your clothes there. We were very unlucky, cause the check in wasn't perfect...so we probably start in a bad way. Apartment looks clean and refurnished.
Will replies your calls, and tries to help, but it doesn't make a big difference.
I recommend it, due to the good location and prize, but be prepared for the unexpected.
Han sido muy amables conmigo 100% recomendable!
Super sejour, Appartement charmant a 2 pas de la plage, quelques rues de lincoln road, proches des restaurants et des clubs..
Petite chambre confortable avec un lit 2p et un futon, salle de bain, acces a la cuisine et au salon, grand frigo, possibilitee de cuisiner.
informations pratique du quartier affichées, connection wifi en fin sejour. Une personne louait l'autre chambre elle avait sa salle de bain, on la croisait peu. Tres bon sejour.
Great location. Very good stay, very clean, close to stores, restaurants, nightlife and beach! Would definitely recommend!
Great location, only a few minutes to the beach / Ocean Drive! We haven´t met William, but his friend Michael helped us with check in etc.
Michael takes care of the appartment and is very helpful.
We had a great time and recommend the appartment for a stay in south beach.
it was very nice to live in the appartement! I really enjoyed my stay! the neighbourhood was safe and you go 5 min to the beach.. you've got a huge fridge to put your thinks into and you can cook and its clean there!
everybody was very helpfull to me! there are many informations hanging out in the appartement about where you can go to eat, go to party and so on what helped me very much.
I slept in the living room on the futon for two weeks and it was comfortable. can't say nothing bad about this!
It was super close to everything, I loved that I could simply walk down the street to the beach. Everything I needed was labeled and easy to find. Michael was super helpful in finding certain places.
Very well located, the place is comfortable and quiet. Willian wasnt there but I met Michael (the guy who takes care os william's place) and he is very nice and easy going. I had to change my reservation because I arrived in miami a few days early and everything gone smoothly...
First of all, thank you William for your stay. You are a very kind, and open guest. I definitely recommend William to stay at anybodies airbnb, couch surf... and so on place. You are an uncomplicated and generous person. We had some very interesting and long talks about various topics which we enjoyed a lot. Thank you William for everything and I you are very welcome to stay here anytime. I wish you the best with everything and we hope you come back soon to visit again. Cheers, Georg and Erik!
William was a pleasure to have as a guest! Focused on the conference he came to attend, he was out early and in late and when he took the time to relate with us, we did have a good report. WE look forward to the next conference which will attract him in Tampa:-)
I met Will when I found his nice place to stay during my visit to Chicago, and boy was he a cool guy ! He was an excellent cook, well-trained athlete, superb wine taster AND very accommodating host. Will is such a great friend and I felt so happy to meet him in the Windy City. I'd recommend this guy to anyone who'd like to make new, cool friends :)
Really good peeps.
