Perfect Key Biscayne base
Just came back from a wonderful experience on Key Biscayne.
We stayed in this newly furnished little condo in the center of Key Biscayne village. For a small size condo it does offer all the amenities you need, not a single detail is missing. The interior decorator did a fantastic job to make it both contemporary and cosy.
It is a perfect base for exploring Miami and Key Biscayne, walking distance from the beach and restaurants and pretty quiet.
The only down side is that the airco in the sleeping quarters did not work properly . We were offered to move to the condo next door and the airco would be replaced next week, so it should be fine. The outside terrace can be used in the morning but does get very hot in the afternoons.
However, you can cool down in the small pool in the back of the building.
The condo is very well maintained, everything is brand new.
Price/value is excellent for Key Biscayne. Perfect for two people.
You need a car because there are hardly any taxis on KB.
Owner's Response: This is an accurate review. It is very positive overall, however, with respect to the less than perfect notes, as the guest mentioned one of the two A/C units was not cooling well. We suggested/offered to move them right away to another upgraded, higher priced unit (at no charge of course) but they preferred to stay where they were. We replaced the A/C with a new unit the same day they left because we were not happy with the repair option and did not want any future guests to be inconvenienced.
Regarding taxis, you can not find them in the street on Key Biscayne like many places but you can call several taxi and car service companies. Sometimes you might have to wait a bit, or you can walk to the Ritz Carlton and there are always plenty there. Many people, including residents get around walking, biking or by golf cart (you can rent bikes and golf carts) as an alternative to renting a car. Getting around Miami you do need a car. Public transportation is not great in Miami.
Regarding the outside terrace getting hot in the afternoons, there is an umbrella but we do have a lot of sunshine here in Key Biscayne, Florida and it can get warm, however, a dip in the pool or ocean is a great remedy, or of course one could go inside when they get too hot.
