Not only was this place perfect for what I needed (I was out all day and came in late at night- very comfy bed and nice and dark room for sleep) but my hosts were very friendly and accommodating. They hooked me up with nail polish remover when I messed up my pedicure and gave me a beer at the end of a long day. The beach is less than a minute from living room to water's edge. Clean, cool, quiet, safe-- I will definitely stay here again next time I come to South Beach.
Exactly as advertised. The room is barely bigger than the bed, but it's comfortable and has its own tv. Ten seconds from the beach and access to a pool. Plus the apartment has a puppy! Xavi and her mother were very accommodating. This room is perfect if you just want a bed to crash on and plan on being out and about for your entire stay.
I had an amazing stay at Xavi's apartment. The room is clean, the bed is comfortable, it's small sure, but we only need a bed to sleep right ?!! The location of the building is perfect. The beach is just behind and when you're there and you want to go to the restrooms of refill your bottle of water, you can come back and do that in the lobby next to the pool. Xavi and her mom are very welcoming, I recommend it to everyone !
Xavi ' s place was great. It's an amazing location, I couldn't of found anything better. It's far enough south to be on a slightly quieter block in SOBE compared to central Ocean Ave, and the apartment building is very peaceful. Xavi was a great host, and I was bummed that I was only able to stay at her place for one night. I would definitely recommend her for a future visit to Miami!
Xavi and her mother are excellent hostesses and very nice people. The apt. is very clean and the room is small but comfortable and quiet - and you can ask them to raise the AC if it's too hot. The building is very safe and in a quiet area of South Beach, yet only a few blocks away from all the action. There's a pool and direct beach access. Great location.
I had a wonderful time during my stay at Xavi. The room is small but super comfortable. The bed is very comfy too. The apartment is very nice and has a nice view from the balcony. The beach is step always and is never crowded because you're not near the big hotels. The location was perfect. We had a bike station a block over and we'd bike everywhere we had to go. Cabs were found very easily too. There is a Walgreens two blocks away which is a life saver. Everything is close by, restaurants, shops, bars. Xavi and her mom were super friendly and accommodating. She answered all of out needs and questions and was always available for anything. Would def stay again.
My stay with Xavi and her mother was the best!! The room is small, but exactly as described. The bed is comfortable, and their home is lovely, clean and beautifully decorated!! They have the cutest puppy on earth. If I didn't want to stay with Xavi again I would have taken the dog with me!!!
I am from the area and I will say, for tourists, it's ideal! Steps from the beach and everywhere else in the South of Fifth neighborhood!!
Very nice, perfect location near to the sea, Xavi and Xavi's mom are really kind, their tips for visiting different places in Miami were valuable and helpful, you feel like at home. Highly recommendable!!
Wonderful hosts, very nice and comfortable. Small room but that is fine for one person. Awesome pool by the beach! Highly recommended!
Xavi es super tierna y el departamento fue muy limpio y cómodo. Además, está MUY bien ubicado en South Beach a unos pasos de la parte famosa de Ocean Drive (pero en un edificio bien tranquilo, privado y seguro). Desde el balcón se puede ver el lindo mar azul. Yo llegué desde el aeropuerto en autobus y la parada queda a menos que 5 minutos caminando al departamento.
Mi estadía fue muy corta así que no hubo tiempo de gozar de la piscina del edificio que también ofrece aceso directo a la playa. Logré ver por un momento a la mami de Xavi pero como yo iba de prisa y ella estuvo hablando por teléfono no nos conocimos por más que una sonrisa y un saludo de hola con las manos.
El cuarto es pequeño pero más que adequado, con una cama bien cómodoa. Hay un clóset para colgar la ropa, una cómoda (allí pudes encontrar un papelito con los detalles del WIFI) y una televisión. Se puede enchufar la cargadora del teléfono y posarlo por unos de los estantes que cuelgan por la pared.
El baño (compartido) fue nítido y yo no me acostumbro de compartir el baño cuando voy de vacaciones pero en serio no había ningún problema. De verdad fue casi como vivir en departamento propio por las pocas horas que estuve allí.
En fin, creo que no hay mejor lugar donde quedarse en Miami Beach que en la casa de Xavi, considerando el precio.
Great girl, so much fun to be with!
I wish she could have stayed longer!!!!
