We had a wonderful time at Davids place. The apartment is big and open with two balconies. If you like to cook you will find anything you need in the kitchen and you will have a beautiful table to sit and eat at.The wifi works perfectly and you have many channels to choose from if you want to stay in and watch TV. Plenty of good restaurants around the corner and if you go down to the water behind the house you will found a beautiful walkway where you can see downtown Miami and a beautiful sunset. David/Mohamed (we talked to both) is very very very easy to deal with. You will get an answer within a few minutes. We stayed for over a week and since we like it to be clean where you live we were able to find everything we needed to clean when we wanted to do so. Beds were comfortable and the air condition worked the few times we used it. We preferred to have both balcony doors open during our stay and it was perfect. We highly recommend this place and we would stay there again. You can't find a better deal than this.

It's a nice clean place with a beautiful yellow retro kitchen and bath. It's super close to Lincoln Road and there's a bus stop right out front. Thank you Mohamed for having me!
First of all, Mohamed is an incredibly friendly and nice guy. I didn't get to meet him in person, but we communicated in email and by text and he was fantastic at being accessible and providing information.
The apartment is really a fine place to stay. I rented for more than 30 days, so truly had the experience of it. It looks just like the photos, the wifi and cable were top-notch, and all was as described. There are a couple of items that bear noting, however.
First, the apartment faces West Ave, and even with all of the windows closed, the street noise comes through as if they were wide open. I expect this is because apartments in Miami dont require the thick insulation we use in the colder climates, which also deadens sound. If you are a light sleeper (I am not) you should take this into consideration.
Second, there were bugs. When I arrived, although the apartment had just been cleaned, the kitchen counters were being enjoyed by numerous tiny sweet ants. There was some ant spray under the sink I used which eradicated that problem. However there were some larger crawling insects which made regular daily appearances in the kitchen. I would find them on counters, in cabinets, on the 'fridge and even inside the microwave. It's south Florida, and so this wasn't entirely a surprise. The kitchen was kept very clean, and no food left uncovered/exposed, so that wasn't the draw. Although I didn't witness it directly, I think they would come in from the colder temps outside via crawling under the kitchen door, which seemed to have a space underneath. I took to leaving the kitchen light on overnight which was a decent (but not completely effective) deterrent - unlike flying insects, these crawlers prefer darker spaces. I probably killed 2-3 per day.
Third, I found that the hanging closet doors in the bedroom and the hallway were off their tracks when I arrived. I manhandled them back into place, after which they behaved properly.
All-in-all, I thought that this was a great apartment in a great location for its value, and in spite of a few issues, I would definitely consider strongly being Mohamed's guest again!
Good location, big apartment, wifi, elevator, balcony. No need for car. We were happy with everything and def recommend to stay there :)
