Guestbook comments from the owner
We have some friends who have apartments in Fisher Island but this year was the first time that we spent two weeks as "residents" and it was GREAT! The apartment is perfect very spacius and I think it's one of the few complete 3 beds, 3 baths in the island. It is near Fisher Island Beach Club that is amazing for a drink and lunch and my soon realy loved playing at the beach in front. Definitely we'll rent the 19122 unit again whenever it's possibile. Thanks Richard and Regis.
Our stay at Fisher Island was wonderful. The unit was clean and totally felt like home. We had no problems and the owner really cared about our comfort.... We look forward to returning ... What a special place

If you are planning on being in Miami or Fisher Island, Richard's apartment is where you should stay. I spent 10 days with my wife, mother in law, 5 year old and 1 year old and it was fantastic. The apartment is extremely clean, is modern, decorated nicely, and is kept in 5 star condition. Each bedroom has its own bath and there is a large terrace which was great for relaxing after the kids went to sleep.
My five year old loved the golf cart and being able to walk to the beach and the pool in 60 seconds. The beach and pool were basically empty the entire time we were there- it was as if we had our own one mile private beach. The service on the island was excellent and Richard (and his son Regis) were very nice and easy to work with. Nathalie, the woman who does check-in and check-out, was also excellent and went above and beyond making sure we were comfortable. Even though we arrived 2 hours late because of a plane delay, on our first night she gave us a golf cart tour of the island and even offered to wait outside the grocery store for us to buy food for our 1 year old.
I highly recommend staying here if you are traveling with children. We are already planning our next trip.
We just returned from a week on Fisher Island (2 adults, 3 kids (4,9,9). I'm very perplexed by the negative reviews. We really enjoyed the accomodations and the Fisher Island experience. The 3 bedroom 3 bath vacation rental was perfect for my family. Plenty of room and clean. Arrival was a breeze. I was met by a representative, who manages the condo for the owner, and he was very responsive and kind. He met us as soon as we got off the ferry and escorted us to the apartment. Any and all questions I had prior to or during our trip were responded to in a timely fashion. The condo is in a great location. Close to the Beach Club and steps to a pool and beach. We had use of a golf cart which only added to the experience. If your thinking of spending time on Fisher Island, you should definitely consider renting this unit. We would definitely return.
Fisher Island - Very private, safe, upscale, tennis, golf, beach, pools, etc. This was a very relaxing vacation and the weather was perfect for us. The Island has restaurants and a great little market. Upon arrival we opened up a temporary account which we used to pay for our on island activity. The amenities on the island are great. As expected the restaurants and the market are on the expensive side, but good, so I would suggest a super-market run (off island and close by) which was very helpful. The casual italian restaurant is very good and the menu for lunch at the Beach Club was also good. Fisher Island is an exclusive Island and an excellent destination to simply relax. South beach is close by if you are looking to get off island for some high energy activities before returning to your exclusive private island. The Ferry runs every 15 minutes and of course you have to be registered to get on it. My kids rated this vacation 9.5/10.

Wonderful! This condo was in the perfect location. Steps from the beach, pool, racquet club, and Vanderbilt Mansion. It was nicely decorated, clean and all in all beautiful! Our teenage children enjoyed every aspect of the Island as did my husband and myself. We plan on returning often!!!
Stay away.. This place is run down, dirty, in bad repair and things just don't work, even the lock on the front door is broken and thus it is almost imposible to get in the condo.. We had to leave half way through or stay in a panic with our baby as the condo was not fit to live in. NO REFUND, NO APPOLIGY and in our hast I left hundreds of dollars of my clothes behind. Yes items I bought the same day with the tags still on. When we asked for our clothes back like magic thay where all gone.... HOW CAN THAT BE WHEN WE WHERE STILL SUPPOSE TO BE IN THE CONDO.
Wow, what happened.. this place is nasty.. the unit is dirty. The washroom exhaust fan has years of dirt built up, the dust balls are behind all the furnature, the walls look like thay have not been painted ever. Fisher Island is a dead quite place and becouse of the ferry ride it is a long and boring trip to and from the action. If you drive a Honda thay look strangely at you. if you drive a mercedes they think you are poor. The restaurants require you to dress up , but thay are small, empty and the food is very poor. The whole place goes to sleep at sunset even the kids park is off limits at dark yes 5:00 pm during Dec. and Jan. as the sprinklers are watering the grass and there are no lights. thus there is nothing to do. Most units are owned by wealthy people who are never around. This condo is tired and run down. For less money you can stay where te action is in South beach or Miami beach. We where in shock, half way through our stay the air conditioning stopped working and we had to go home.Unlike a hotel we our out thousands of dollars and no refund. Stay away or you will be vey disapointed. The only possitive is that the owner who lives over seas seems to be a nice guy.
