The host canceled this reservation 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Renovation to the apartment took longer than anticipated. it will look great and welcoming once is completed next week.
This condo is in a great location if you are looking for a beautiful bay view and nearby walk to the Lincoln street shopping center. Mario met us right on time to greet, introduced his place and the building and gave us the keys and instructions which was nice. I would definitely stay at the Flamingo again!
We had a great time at Mario's apartment! It's a very neat and cozy place with an amazing view of the bay. Check in and check out were very easy even though we arrived late at night and left very early in the morning. It was our first time using airbnb but Mario was a great host, he told us everything we needed to know and gave us some tips about where to go what to do. I would absolutely recommend renting this apartment. It is close to everything (lincoln road, movie theater, bike and bus station, stores, etc). I would definitely stay there again, I miss the balcony with the bay view already!
Mario came through for me last minute when another host unexpectedly canceled on me. On the weekend of ultra no less! Luckily I found his place which was clean, in a great location, and has a great view. There's a market in the lobby of the building which made getting any essentials or late night snacks easy and convenient. Mario himself is also very friendly and offered some great suggestions for local spots. Would definitely recommend you stay with him if you get the chance!
Seamless. Apt was clean and as advertised. Pool was new, clean and had a beautiful view. Located within short walk of beach and all south beach bars/restaurants. A great spot. Thank you.
Mario's place is the perfect vacation spot. Great apartment, amazing view, awesome pool and hot tub...it was only a 5-minute walk to beach but we barely left the grounds bc it was so convenient!!!I wld definitely come back
Marios place at South Beach was a great stay, me and my friend was here for a week and enjoyed both the appartment and the lounge/pool area. Also, the view is amazing! Would love to come again.
I had a wonderful time at Mario's apartment. The pictures do not lie: The view from the balcony is spectacular. I was very pleased with the value compared to hotels in the area. This is the Flamingo resort, which is on the bay (on the west side), about a 15 minute walk from the beach and close to Lincoln Rd. The apartment is nicely furnished and comfortable. The bed has a futon mattress but is decently comfortable. The resort has a beautiful pool area overlooking the bay, with a great hot tub (which was delightful in January!). One thing to note is that you will need to use Mario's pass to get around the resort and the pool area. Usually there's no problem but we had one security guard that gave us some trouble about it. Just try not to draw too much attention to yourself as a non-resident. Another tip: the washer/dryer in the apartment is extremely slow -- you are better off using the ones near the elevators (they take a card which you can add money to).
Overall, this place is great and Mario is very responsive and helpful. I would definitely come back if I'm in the area again. Enjoy!
The wonderful view from Mario's apartment is a panoramic view of Miami Bay and it changes as the day unfolds. We enjoyed watching the boats, the sunsets, the light shows on the downtown skyscrapers at night.
Mario was there to welcome us when we arrive and gave us some good South Beach tips.
The apartment itself is very comfortable. The location is great, close to Lincoln Rd and a short bike ride to the beach. Right outside the building there is a docking station for Decobike, the Miami Beach bike rental program that has stations all over South Beach. Be sure to pick up a membership card at their store when you arrive. The Decobike is definitely the way to get around South Beach.
Mario's place was perfect! Great view, very comfortable, and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Mario for the great stay!
Mario pleasant, sociable and cheerful.
We've enjoyed the stay at the hostel.
Hope to see you again!
Mario came with a couple of friends. They were all very courteous, had great communication on arrival, kept it quiet, and they left the place nice an clean. Would have them back any time.
