Franco and the space were fantastic. The view is gorgeous and the building is very accommodating. The building is filled with a more mature crowd so the building is very quiet. There is a key fab to enter the building, which was very convenient for us. The beach is a few steps away and happens to be in a VERY quiet stretch of Miami Beach. Centrally located to everywhere you need to go. Citi Bike rentals were only 2 blocks away as well. Franco provided beach chairs, an umbrella, and towels.
I would recommend Franco and his apartment to anyone trying to enjoy South Beach without the $$$ and noise.
When we stayed, the hallway was under construction and the ceiling panels were removed. Don't let that fool you.
Franco was a great host, flexible with check in and check out times. The apartment was amazing! We watched the sunrise over the beach every morning. The check-in process was a little nerve wracking as we were pulled into the building's management offices for a little interview, but Franco was with us the whole time and everything worked out seamlessly. We would definitely stay here again.. Check out the little Cuban diner on the 1st floor
Everything worked out very well. Communication with Franco by cell or text worked well and the apartment on the 15th floor was very clean and comfortable , just as pictured, with lovely view across the pool area, boardwalk and beach to the sea. It was great to have parking and the location in mid-beach where there is a nice broad stretch of sand and it is not so crowded was ideal for us. The building is safe and well maintained, as is the pool area and the neighborhood is safe to walk around in. Franco has a cooler , beach chairs and beach towels which is useful. There is also a good general store on the street by the front entrance which sells just about everything.
Excellent location, big place with lots of room for storage. Good kitchen equipment for people who like to cook themselves.
The apartment was exactly how the pictures look. Everything was super clean, plenty of towels, a hair dryer and even some shampoo and conditioner packets were left for us. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Miami, it was great!
Great appartment. Everything as described. Franco dealt professionally with everything.
This was my first airbnb experience, and Franco did his very best to ensure that it was a great one. First, he was very responsive and helped me to understand how the process worked. Second, he was flexible and understanding of slight changes in my travel plans.
The unit itself is very well maintained and clean. The furniture is exactly as depicted - classy and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and clean.
The building itself is a slightly older condominium complex but has had a nice renovation in the lobby. It has two pool, including one heated. It also has a very reasonably priced cafe downstairs and a supermarket where you can get FANTASTIC Cuban coffee for $1.50!
The building is right on the beach. I wish I could attach a picture of the fantastic sunrise you are greeted with each morning. The heart of South Beach is about 10 long blocks away, but a comfortable and interesting walk - either on a great boardwalk, or on Collins Ave - the main street in the area.
I highly recommend this location and host. You won't go wrong. I'm really pleased to have had such a great airbnb experience, and I'm sure you will if you try this place out.
This is a lovely, inviting, and tastefully-appointed dwelling. Our hosts were very accommodating and helpful; the process of 'checking in' was smooth and easy. Everything you need for comfortable daily living was provided. The view of the ocean and access to the ocean-front cannot be beat. We opted to make a romantic dinner at home and gaze at the sunset because it was as lovely an environment as we could imagine finding at any restaurant, although there are plenty of those nearby, along with a wide selection of stores and all that you might need within walking distance of the condo. You'll wake up to the sound of the ocean and the sun emerging from the Atlantic. Franco (our host) is generous and friendly; he takes pride in his guests having a pleasant experience.
I stayed in Franco's flat for 4 nights with my husband. Franco replied to my messages very quickly and promptly, and he was also very flexible with our early check-in.
The flat was very nicely decorated, just like in the pictures. It was also very clean, and very well equipped (there's even a blender and a juice maker!) and very quiet.
The location is excellent, restaurants & shopping around Lincoln can be reached in 15-20 mins by foot, Publix supermarket is 10 mins by car. Additionally, the garage in the building provides safe parking for your car when you do not need it.
The only improvement area we experienced was the bed as it makes noise when your partner is turning (thus 4/5 starts). All in all I can warmly recommend Franco and his flat!
Our stay in Miami was very nice. The apartment is in a good location with a great view!!
The building is quiet and the apartment itself is convenient.
Overall is was a nice place.
Franco was an amazing house guest
