This condo was very comfortable - spotlessly clean, linens fresh and of high quality, and the colors and decor bright and pleasant. Not a big place, but all the space used to maximum effect. The little kitchen had all the right appliances and utensils, great flat-screen tv, and the pull out couch was actually comfortable. Nice pool too. Owners were very easy to deal with - all was done over the Internet, including payment, and they very thoughtfully provide pre-arrival grocery shopping service so that we could get started right away with our vacation! My kids and I found it a very relaxing place to come back to each evening after full and active days in the Miami area.
I truly enjoyed staying at the cottage! It was clean and well-stocked with a lovely, private patio to sit for my morning tea or evening dinner.
It is a great location too. I was able to walk to stores and loved the park just down the block. The ocean is just a few blocks away and getting over the bridge into downtown Miami was a breeze.
With on-site laundry and a pool there were days I didn't wander too far!
I would stay here again. Thank you!
Sand on the floor. As I entered I slipped, I use a cane which helped me maintain my balance but it was close. The sand (concrete or beach not sure) was just inside the door I fell backwards somewhat, falling against the door jam using my cane to control the stumbling.
Not a cottage!
Stay was pleasant and the room wasn't bad at all = could use a bit of attention to update literature and to cleaning - dust (perhaps from the sand) was on the table. It seemed like no one had used the place in awhile. Aside from these complaints it really wasn't a bad place at all.
My husband, my nine month old son, and I stayed at the condo for 8 days. It was very clean and provided all the basic necessities. It is very conveniently located: walking distance to every shop, and the parks, of Key Biscayne. You can walk to the private beach (the key/chip comes with the rental), but it'll take a good 20-25 minutes, and the other beaches are nicer. The supermarket was only a quick 5 minute walk through a park which also had a cute little playground. The pool in back of the apartments was great for the baby, and very private. Ideally, the in-wall air conditioners will eventually be replaced by central air, as they are quite noisy (esp at night), but otherwise the condo is a good casual vacation spot, and a great value for the money.
I have just returned from our family vacation to Key Biscayne and Miami and stayed at the condo detailed here. It was perfect in many ways - accommodation itself was exceptionally clean and well equipped with ample room for myself, my husband and 20 month daughter. Location was ideal, near to the park and the jungle gym used on a daily basis, walking distance to the local stores and restaurants and a ten minute walk to the serene beaches. The pool was very pleasant albeit a little cold on a couple of days!! We were able to fully explore Key Biscayne and can highly recommend buying fresh local fish from the fisherman on the Key as you head out towards the main land. The Miami Sea Aquarium was a real treat for our daughter and a great family day out. Over to the mainland so much to explore and many beautiful suburbs including Coconut Grove and Coral Gables - Vizcaya House is simply stunning and well worth a visit. Miami beach and the wonderful Art Deco architecture is great to while away an afternoon or two and the beach is wonderfully clean and great for people spotting.
I could not recommend this location or accommodation more highly.
Just waiting to book again next year.
We very much enjoyed staying at the condo. We were impressed with the eco-friendly products that were used from the mattress to the cleaning products. The staff was wonderful and the cleaning mid-way through the week was wonderful. When looking for condos to rent, we stayed here because of the "allergy free" advertisement, but were even more pleased to find it went well beyound just allergy free.
