Home away from Home
Submitted: March 8, 2012

We spent three weeks at this apartment and truly felt like we were at home! It is cozy, clean, well designed and fitted. The pictures are true to life,and the apartment is quiet even for being so close to Washington Avenue. The yard/pool area is a lovely place to read a book, have a cocktail or make a phone call. The shade is lovely and for some reason, its never crowded. The apartment is very well situated. No need for a car, which was big for us. Walk everywhere, or take the 25 cents local South Beach bus around the loop! Deco Beach Supermarket is two blocks away and very good, there is also a Publix and Whole Foods a bit further away if you prefer. The beach is wide and beautiful and less than 6 minutes walk. The place has 2 beach chairs; I bought a good umbrella at Walgreens for $12 and we were set. If I were to change anything at all they are small things: an umbrella, more towels..though there is a washer/dryer right down the hall. There are car rentals nearby if you want to take day trips as well. We loved Charlotte's Bakery, Havana 57 for Cafe Con Leche, the sports bar on Dexter and Espanola Way, many spots on Lincoln Road, The New World Symphony at the Gehry space on Lincoln Road, the diversity of SouthBeach and this condo. Lee and Alex are very responsive. We'll be back!
Owner's Response: Thanks...and as for the Towels, all the Units I offer include two full sets of towels and 1 Beach Towel per person...which tends to be enough with the Washer/Dryer on site. Though I can offer guests additional linens, towels or cleaning service during the stay at an agreed upon (reasonable) price.
And most of my Units have Beach Umbrellas, so now that I know there isn't on here, I will buy one for future guests.
