Actually I don't know where to begin and how to express our impressions! Everything was much better than expected - and because of the description and the pictures in advance we expected a lot:-) From the first contact via e-mail Roger was very gentle, reliable and caring. It was a pity that we haven't met him personally (He was abroad during our stay). But his friend and "caretaker" Octavio was as gentle, reliable and caring as Roger himself. One call and Octavio was there, took care for everything and fulfilled each single possible wish. E.g. as I bought the wrong pots for the coffeemaker, I called Octavio to ask him if he knew where I can get the right ones. He showed up immediately with two packs of coffeepots. Really the best hosts ever!!! Thanks for your efforts, guys! We felt on top of the world.
Quite the same I definitely can say about the condo itself - it was just perfect. Extremely tidy, well designed, almost brand-new and perfectly (fully) equipped. There was nothing you could have missed. Starting with cutlery (which was even there twice - in the kitchen in the apartment and in the kitchen at the rooftop terrace) to washing machine, up-to-date full-automated air-condition, the two bathrooms with enough towels even for the beach, sanitary equipment and coffeemaker till the goodies of the terrace with barbecue, whirlpool and a lot of possibilities to relax. We were out for dinner only once,because the barbecue kitchen at the terrace was to inviting to just put a steak on and relax at the terrace while the grill does the work for you. It was simply to nice up there. Nothing and no one that could have disturbed. The condo is top located - 5 min. on foot to Ocean Drive and the beach as well as to Washington Ave. and Collins Ave. where all the necessary shops were. 10 min. to Lincoln Road mall. 15 min. by car to the airport, and so on. It's a part of a small condominium of four houses, very quiet and well-kept with absolutely nice neighbors. If we could give Roger, Octavio and the condo more than the possible five stars we'd do it definitely!
If you plan a trip to Miami, don't search further more. This condo and especially the customer service of Roger and Octavio is worth every cent you pay! I guess we will go to Miami Beach again. And if we do, we definitely will book Roger's condo!!!
