Overview

South Beach Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4 comfortably

This is a completely non-smoking unit.

This modern 1 bedroom, 1 bath is part of an 8 unit historical building that was completely remodeled in 2006. It has limestone floors, slate counter tops, Bosch appliances and a huge open kitchen. The marble bath and glass and Wedge wood vanity complete the best way to enjoy your stay in South Beach. Flat screen TV with 100s of cable channels for your entertainment as well as WiFi Internet access. Condo is right in the middle of South Beach -- walking distance to all the bars, nightclubs, beaches and restaurants, but still located on a quiet residential street. If you aren't here to play, the condo has the easiest access to the causeway to head downtown and to work or to the I-95. As long time locals we will even share with you our favorite spots!!

We bought the entire building in 2004 and remodeled it from top to bottom. It was literally rebuilt in place as it was an historic building from 1924. This makes it not your average vacation rental from the Bosch appliances to the hurricane impact windows. We furnished the listing for our personal use so we think that also sets us apart from your average South Beach Rental.

We live in Aspen, CO and come and go from our South Beach Rental. I love that I can WALK ANYWHERE -- and I do. My husband loves that he can take a taxi anywhere on the beach for around $4. Our 7 year old son loves that we can walk to the amazing kids park 1.5 blocks away.

Both my husband and I use the tennis courts that are just 1 block away. The Whole Foods -- 2 blocks away -- is super handy. I love how big the apartment feels -- even though it is a 1 bedroom it has the feeling of space and separate areas. Even though when you are in South Beach you are on the go with so much to do -- the big sectional sofa is nice to come home to and watch some TV.

I tell everyone -- one experience not to be missed is renting a beach chair at the Delano hotel -- 17th Ave and Collins. The best $20 you will ever spend !!! Also order a Nina Fresa (cocktail) as Sushi Samba on Lincoln Road at the corner with Pennsylvania. Email us for more tips or read on !!

Many of our guests have come from outside of the US (Brazil, Italy, England, Switzerland, France and Canada) and I have struck up email friendships with so many!! We love to travel and hope you will enjoy your vacation in our vacation place!!

Here are our local area tips -- please enjoy !!!

Restaurants:

Oliver's Bistro at 9th and West is right around the corner and I love it. not expensive good food and wine — close by. $$

Sushi Samba — Lincoln Road and pennsylvania — BEST Sushi — siting outside and people watching — cocktail — Nina Fresa $$ - $$$$

Lime — fresh mexican — super casual and awesome — skinny fish burrito is amazing — really casual at 14th and alton — super near condo $

Ocean front lunch at Ritz Carlton -- worth it $$ - $$$

Tapas y Tintos on Espanola Way — loud live Flamenco music on some nights nice outdoor quieter tables with great Spanish Tapas $$

I love Nikki beach for lunch NOT on Sundays when it is a crazy party $$ - $$$$

Prime 112 is amazing ridiculous steak but you will spend easily over $150 for 2 people $$$$$

Monty's Oyster bar on the bay — a little spring break looking but great raw bar happy hour — 3rd or 2nd and Alton $$ - $$$

Yardbird at 16th and Lenox is the new in spot -- AND IT NOT CRAZY EXPENSIVE -- it is sort of modern Southern Food and YUMMY $$ - $$$

Rosa Mexicano on Lincoln road -- amazing guacamole and Sangria !! $$$

Mr Chow's at the W hotel — crazy expensive, amazing and fun Chinese food and see and be seen $$$$$

You may want to explore some of the restaurants in the Design District — on the mainland:

a great one for 'farm to table' is:

About Elizabeth

Tomas and I have recently moved from Costa Rica to Aspen, Colorado. We lived in South Beach and Coral Gables for 4 years before departing for Costa Rica with our son for 5 years. We have an Argentinian Dogo and a Cane Corso -- big dogs -- that complete our family. Our business is Real Estate Development and we use HomeAway for pleasure (Barcelona, St Tropez, Salt Lake City) as well as a part of our business. The best thing about vacation rentals is the people we meet virtually and for real !!

Elizabeth purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Elizabeth chose South Beach

We fell in love with this building and began to remodel it in 2004 in the middle of Elizabeth's chemotherapy for breast cancer. In February 2014, Elizabeth will reach the 10 year mark cancer free. The building is filled with good Karma -- when we had 5 major hurricane in 18 months, the trees always fell away from the building !! We love it when we stay here. It is an amazing Art Deco 1924 building that we redid down to the bare studs and rebuilt it in place for a year and a half !!

What makes this apartment unique

We are on a quiet residential street, but just a 10 minute walk to the Ocean and 8 minutes to bars and nightclubs -- or a $5 can ride if you are in heels !! We are 1.5 blocks from Flamingo Park with the pool and kids pool park, tennis courts, soccer fields and kids park. We are 2 blocks from Whole Foods and 5 blocks from the big Publix. We have a Deco bike station 1/2 a block away !! You don't need a car, but we have parking if you have one !!

What makes our property the most unique is that is was fully remodeled and furnished to be a vacation rental and one that we use ourselves. We skimped on nothing from WiFi to a fully equipped kitchen to mattresses !!

Weekend trip

  • 5 of 5
I loved this property! From the moment we walked into the entrance, I was in awe. The unit was very spacious and it had more than enough room. The furnishings were cute and modern. My sister and I fell in love with the closets. The assigned parking space was a big plus for us because we were able to park the car and walk to wherever we wanted to go. The location was wonderful. Working with Elizabeth was so awesome, she was very informative, patient, accommodating and professional! She answered any questions I had promptly. I will definitely be staying here again when I come back down!

Peaceful and ideally located

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this appartment two weeks and had a wonderful Time! the location is just perfect: near everything and far from the noise. We were just a 10 minute Walk from Océan Drive and the beach.
The building is more than pleasant and clean. The appartment is comfortable and nicely furnished, and you feel at home as soon as you get there.
Elizabeth is wonderful as she did her best to make our stay delightful. We Will définitely book this place again!

Great Find!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a great little gem in the middle of Miami Beach. The pictures don't do it justice, this condo is very spacious with enough room for the 4 of us to call home for few nights without getting feeling cramped. The condo is very clean and all appliances worked without any issues. The entire codo has been updated with a modern flare that complements each room. There is designated parking in the rear of the condo, which was very nice to know that when we were getting back late that we would not need to fight for a parking spot. Nice walk (8 blocks) to Ocean Drive, which allowed us to enjoy all the excitement without having to deal with any noise back in the condo. Very quiet facility which allowed us to relax in comfort. The key codes for the doors is very convenient, no keys to have to worry about loosing during our daily adventures.

Summary: Spacious, Quiet, Clean, and nicely updated!

Elizabeth was a pleasure to deal with! She even accomodated our request for a late checkout which saved us on the last day due to our late flight schedule.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this condo with our two kids.

It is well equipped, clean and perfectly located, e.g. 5min. walk to Flamingo Park with playground, 5 min. to Whole Foods Market, 10 min. to Ocean Drive or Lincoln Road...

Elizabeth is very friendly, attentive and reliable!

We were very happy with everything and will come again if we visit Miami next time!

Thank you Elizabeth!

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5
Let me say this is a very nice property. As a dedicated reviewer I am going to be very honest. Elizabeth was great and the communication was very good. The property was modern, clean and well equipped. We were only there for 2 nights and I think for a longer stay it might have seemed a little easier. We had to master codes to get in the building and again to get into the room but of course once done not bad. Also had to figure the parking situation with free tags you have to scratch off and hang from your car mirror each day.
We were also under the impression we were closer to the beach. It was not misrepresented just my lack of study. The unit was a tad noisy as people came home late at night and it is time to replace the bath towels. Big and nice but a little scratchy. All in all I would recommend and would stay again. I appreciated a flat rate with no add on charges like so many places today.
I think more of a place for a week or more but we found it a little of a challenge for 2 nights.

Owner's Response: I totally agree with you -- hotels often make much more sense for a 2 night stay and vacation rentals work great for a week. I feel terrible that the codes caused you any problems. We use them for the added security -- no worries that the last guest made copies of the key and the added convenience for our guests.

I try to tell everyone we are 7 blocks from the sand -- 10 -12 minutes walking and I am so sorry we did not explain that to you!

Thank you for the feedback about the towels -- I will check them out for scrachiness !!

Again -- we appreciate your feedback and I am super sorry about any inconvenience you suffered at our hands -- Elizabeth
