Response from Simon:
Thanks Kate for the review!
Unfortunately parking in South Beach can be a nightmare particularly during long weekends and special events. Which was the case during Kate's visit. I do offer limited number of residential parking permits on a first come first serve basis. I was able to provide one pass for each night of Kate's stay, but because she was to arrive only a few hours after confirming the booking, I was not able to accommodate her second car. There are several parking garages nearby as an alternative option.
I am happy to report that as of Feb 18/2014, the renovation of the pool has been completed and it is now open for guests to enjoy.
