About Steven Kruss

I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela, went to high school at Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, MA and graduated from Bentley University in Waltham, MA. I now live in Miami, FL with my beautiful wife, who also grew up in Venezuela, and our three children. I manage an automotive parts business ( which specializes in supplying original equipment quality parts for Hyundai and Kia to the North American aftermarket.

Beaches were always a part of our lives growing up in Venezuela. Living here in this paradise called Miami, we wanted to be able to spend our free time as a family enjoying the clear, warm waters, the azure skies and the beautiful, sandy beaches. Our beach apartment, with its gorgeous location in Sunny Isles Beach just north of Miami, allows us to do just that. We hope it creates the same, wonderful memories for our children as those we have of our own childhood days spent playing and relaxing at the beach in Venezuela.

Steven Kruss purchased this apartment in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our week at your condo. The people working at the resort were very friendly and helpful in all areas including, checking in late at night, the valet team, eating breakfast overlooking the ocean and being served cocktails on the beach.

The condo itself was very clean and tasteful in appearance. The views from the balcony are what we all come to Florida to see. Both great views of the Ocean and also views of the coastal waterways.

Steven was a pleasure to deal with as we had a few questions relating to the Miami area. He was very attentive to help when I hated to complain about anything in the apartment as is it so nice. The help I needed was related to the air conditioning that was not cooling things down. I sent him an email and within an hour he said someone would be coming by at my convenience to repair it. Within a couple of hours it was fixed while we were having dinner.

I would highly recommend staying at Steven's condo who will take care of you if you need help and the unit is everything and more you would want on the Ocean in Florida.

Beautiful, cool & chic. Great customer service!

  • 5 of 5

Memorable 1 week at beautiful Marenas. Fabulous apartment by Steve! Great customer service w/ many good reviews, responded quickly & clearly, answering questions & solving problems w/ help of wonderful & lovely property manager, Ms. Janet.

First time vacation rental, tried others who never answered or three weeks later, or w/ short, unclear messages. Highly recommend renting w/ Steve. Assured that money & vacation will go well.

Love Marenas, compared to others, just right. Not too big, or small. Marenas is a Cool and Chic boutique hotel.

Terrific, quick service from front desk, valet parking, & pool/beach attendants (especially Scott & Carlos). Slow restaurant service but food was good. Great view, can eat outside at mezzanine overlooking pool & beach. Cool music playing at mezzanine & pool, great place to relax. Drinks available at pool & beach. Whirlpool too hot , 2nd one was better, hidden upstairs, outside 2 well equipped fitness center. Next to fitness is steam room & sauna (Warm up sauna in advance.) Pool had showers with cool feet sprayers to wash away sand.

Accurate photos & descriptions. Beautiful & modern apartment, kitchen had what you needed including: ice maker, microwave, blender, coffee maker, quiet dishwasher. Washer/dryer was loud & needs extra time to dry. 2 TVs in living & bed rooms. Slightly lumpy sofabed but sofa was comfy. You eat on counter on 2 hi-chairs or on sofa and coffee table. Small folding table was in closet. Bedroom was beautiful (liked blue wave decor above headboard), had safe, CD/DVD player & luxuriously comfy kingsize bed. Roomy bathroom w/ hairdryer. Free in room wi-fi, internet, & internet stations at lobby.

Especially loved awesome view from balcony. Miss standing/sitting there day or night, admiring turquoise color of the ocean, lovely beach, western view of Sunny Isle Beach, etc. Even hi-rise condo next door was interesting to look at. Regret leaving awesome view from balcony.

Loved turquoise waterfall in front as you drive/walk in, lobby decor & the fantastic beachfront service. Great children's dugout play area w/ installed umbrellas protect families from sun. Kudos hardworking, attentive beachfront staff providing beach towels, chairs & umbrellas to guest!

Only valet parking, don’t need car, frequent buses & free shuttles in front going everywhere. Walk to stores. Pharmacy, eateries, shops, & Med, clinic across street. Walk/drive south to more shopping, dining, & 2 supermarket. 5' drive to Haulover.

Beautiful family getaway! The apartment was spacious and clean, staff were extremely accommodating and nice, and the beach was our daily relaxation spot (not to mention the towel service was very convenient for families with young kiddos). The beach was never over crowded, always had enough lounge chairs with umbrellas, and Publix was in walking distance from the resort to make for a convenient grocery shopping experience. The only downfall was the horrible calamari at the restaurant on site, the room was not very toddler proof (which was ok because we ended up moving the glass coffee table out of the way), and it would have been nice to have had some toys hidden away in one of the drawers (due to traveling so far we were not able to bring many). BUT all in all this resort was excellent for a perfect family gettaway! We will be recommending this home to all of our friends and family! Thank you for helping us create wonderful family memories!

Great vibe, great views, great condo...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month & I can't say enough good things about this place. So much so, that we're staying there again next year, for 2 months. The Marenas is a great blend of resort & condo. The staff is friendly & helpful. Everyone there was so efficient & professional. As far as the owner, Steven, what a nice, nice guy! So eager to please, very accessible & genuinely cared enough to make sure our stay was perfect! His condo is clean, and stocked perfectly, we didn't need anything. The view was just side, ocean with the sunrise everyday, the other side, intercoastal with the sunset everyday! Such a very pleasant experience, destress & relax in a great home environment. I can't wait to do it again next year...! Thank you so much Steven!

Owner's Response: We regret hearing this guest was not completely satisfied with his stay. With over six years renting our apartment and hundreds of satisfied guests, we earned more than 30 positive reviews, the majority being Five Stars. We are surprised by this unfounded and unfair negative comment. Maintenance, cleanliness, repairs and renovations are our top priority. We recently installed new carpeting and sofa bed. We take pride in this apartment. We know the guest’s experience is critical, so we always go above and beyond to create the perfect stay. Prior to each new stay, our housekeeper Zuni thoroughly cleans the apartment. She takes extra care and makes sure everything looks perfect before the guest arrives. We stand by the high quality of our housekeeping service, we never received one complaint. However, willing to please our guest’s request, we arranged for an extra full cleaning service (an $80 value). After the repairs and cleaning were completed the next day, the guest confirmed via phone everything was OK. Our guest complained about the difficulty of opening the balcony sliding door. The balcony sliding door, by design, is not easy to open. On the 18th floor, you don’t want small children easily sliding the door open, which we communicated to our guest. We showed him how to open the door. Knowing our guest was not completely satisfied and striving for total customer satisfaction, we issued him a $150 refund, compensating for any unfortunate event during his stay. Despite all our efforts, and without any further communication, the guest posted the first and only negative review about our apartment listing.

Very nice condo right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 2 adult kids stayed in this condo for 8 wonderful nights. The best part of it was the location on the beach, the balcony overlooking both the ocean and the bay. The condo was very convenient and included everything that we needed. The condo needs some minor fixing here and there, but overall it was a great stay. We hope to back one day.

We loved that place! It was well kept and clean. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was big( for a condo) . Full kitchen. Steven ( owner ) even provided pack and play for my daughter which made my travel a bit easier. He was so nice and welcoming !!! What a costumer service! Location was great, there are plenty of stores and restaurants in a walking distance. We had a great time there and we would go back next year for sure!
