Awesome location, property needs some maintenance
I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We could not check-in at the agreed arrival time, sice the apartment was still being cleaned - no big deal, the lady at the MiaVac desk was really friendly. When we came back after 30 mins, we were given the keys, but the cleaning lady was still working on the apartment. She left shortly after but we did not feel that the apartment had been cleaned thoroughly: floors were sticky, dishes and pans were dirty (we found out that the dishwasher was not really working too well), crumbs on the couch etc. We also realized that while the kitchen was "fully equiped", a lot of equipment was broken. The cabinet doors were lose and e.g. the scissors broken in half. One of the chairs had a lose leg which we fixed... There were no kitchen towels.
We loved the view though! That made up for everything else. I would rent the property again simply for the amazing view and easy beach access! We also liked how spacious the apartment was (we were 5 persons).
We were not a fan of the valet parking! Firstly, it was always really crowded and had long waiting times (probably due to spring break but you would think that a valet service in Miami Beach is familiar with that). Secondly, they "lost" our keys and our car! After an hour wait, I had to go down to the garage with them and search for our car. When I found it, it took another 15 minutes for them to find our keys. I did not hear any apolgy...
Overall, we had a great time! But we all agreed that the apartment (most of all the kitchen equipment) is in desperate need of maintenance! As does the building - the elevators were a nightmare! Luckily we could use the stairs most of the time.
