We rented this property in March 2012 as a group of four girls in our 20s and had an excellent stay. The apartment was very clean and spacious, almost more so than the pictures suggest. Perfect space for four people but more than enough room for six – the two bathrooms off each bedroom were a particular luxury. Kitchen was well equipped including large fridge and freezer space and the bedrooms were large sizes with comfortable beds. Washing machine and dryer came in handy with swimming wear. More than enough towels, bed linen and pillows provided and perfectly working air con.
Great facilities – clean & warm pool including a jacuzzi, beach front access on your step and a Wallmart within 5mins drive away. It’s a quiet area but only a 20-25 drive away from the centre of Miami. I would recommend a car if you’re going to stay in Hallandale as taxis are about $50 each way, so it can add up if you take a lot of trips.
I must say we were particularly impressed with the reception & vallet staff – extremely helpful and friendly, definitely made a difference to our stay. The same must be said of the owners – good communication before and on arrival.
People in the area were quite friendly, it’s a great family beach holiday however if you’re looking for more you’ll need to head into Miami. Great party and restaurant scene, lots to choose from. If you have enough time I’d also highly recommend a trip to Key West, it’s a nice break from Miami and can be done in a day. Worth going for the key lime pie alone!
