Iconic, Idyllic, Immaculate...

  • 5 of 5

It was a privilege to be able to stay at The Carlyle. The pictures are to be believed. This was the first place I've ever stayed that you could eat off the floor. The term 'mirror-like gleam" comes to mind. My shoes never touched the floor. You see something well-cared for & you want to keep it that way. Very little noise from the neighborhood at night and I'm a light sleeper. Parking is either out front on Ocean Drive (if your timing is good) or in a parking deck diagonally across 13th Street from The Carlyle. No waiting for the valet to fetch your car from goodness knows where on THEIR timetable no less. Guests are provided with a special key fob for elevator access to the upper floors, meaning no random tourists are wandering the halls. Lillian at the desk is a TREMENDOUS asset to the property going out of her way for me on checkout day. David & Marcelo have a real gem on their hands and I hope to be able to make it back there soon!

Caveat Emptor: Renting in a Construction Zone

  • 1 of 5

The location and concierge Lillian are great, and the condo is as pictured but owner David failed to give any indication of the major refurbishment project underway. A good portion of the building's exterior is draped in black fabric & has scaffolding. Step in to the building lobby for more draping; not the atmosphere you're given to expect.

There was significant construction noise, particularly on the first two days and final day of a six-night stay, akin to living inside a giant dentist's drill. On the morning after arrival, I began my yoga routine in the living room - but changed plans after not one, but two, of the construction crew repeatedly stopped in font of this third (yes) floor window to sip drinks, before 9:00 a.m.

When renting a vacation property, it is reasonable to hope you would not find people staring in the windows of a third floor condo, or encounter loud, ongoing construction noise. I've edited my review as VRBO did not accept the first submission, even though it was balanced and fair. Perhaps this will meet VRBO's criteria, which seems to benefit owners.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comments and visit us again after the neighbor's renovation is complete. These projects are hard to schedule and my guest was given a large discount. In fact, I IMMEDIATELY offered a refund to this guest but she was unable to find anything approaching the beauty and convenience and view of this apartment for twice the price, so she stayed. Other guests have said they are not in the apartment during the day and were not bothered by the construction noise which is intermittent and hard to predict. And everyone is told in advance of the construction which is common in Miami Beach. In any event, construction will be complete soon, so this review is irrelevant. Just the response of one of those who find a reason to complain, refuse to leave with a refund and then expect a refund AFTER using the apartment. In other words, looking for a free vacation. RENTERS BEWARE! Each of us get one or two of these each year.

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5

I can't express how much I enjoy staying at David's place when I am in South Beach. The place is home away from home for me and booking it is even easier. I have stayed at this particular unit morse than once and it will be more to come. I can't say not one negative thing about this place.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Ocean Ave many times, but our stay at the Carlisle was the best ever. We loved everything about the condo. It was perfect for us and the view was superb. Looking forward to going back next year. The owner texted us prior to our arrival to ask us to contact him if the condo wasn't perfect. It was.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This condo is actually more stunning than the photos. Beautiful view of the ocean from the living room. Immaculately clean and comfortable. Super fast response to all questions from the owner and easy transaction. I made the mistake of renting a car for the week--totally unnecessary as this is a perfect location--short walk to Espanola Way, Lincoln Road, and of course, the beach and all of the great restaurants/clubs on or near Ocean Drive. The only negative is that this really raises the bar for future vacations and will unlikely be matched :) Thanks to David and Marcelo for making this available to visitors.
