South Beach vacation rentals

South Beach, baby! It doesn't get more glam than this

Reach for your biggest pair of oversized sunglasses and get chilling with the jet-set on the American Riviera. Conjure up an image of Miami at its glitziest and most glamorous, and chances are you're picturing South Beach - where the art deco look of Ocean Drive is almost as legendary as the massive nightlife scene, where hips sway in time to the palm trees. Sun yourself on the sand, shop till you drop, or kick back with a cocktail and some celebrity drinking companions on your South Beach vacation rental.

Shake your stuff, day and night, on Miami's South Beach

Make no mistake, South Beach is the spiritual home of the beautiful people, and you'll be seeing a lot of them - in all senses of the phrase, since top-half clothing tends to be optional down on the sands. The beach itself is going to be a big part of your South Beach vacation rental and, with lifeguards on duty all day, you can cool off in safety. When you're done splashing in the ocean, splash your cash in chic boutiques, dine out in ritzy restaurants, and hit the clubs and cocktail bars.

Flex that plastic on some high-end threads at South Beach

If that credit card is burning a hole in your pocket, make a beeline for the hip cafes and the fashionable high-end boutiques of glam Lincoln Road - South Beach's premier shopping destination. For some old-world charm, be sure to check out the quaint European-style Española Way, while no visit is complete without a stroll along iconic art deco Ocean Drive. And if you're looking for a bit of culture during your South Beach vacation rental, you won't be disappointed, with museums and galleries that include the Bass Museum, the Wolfsonian, and the Jewish Museum.

The totally tropical taste of South Beach summers

There's a tropical flavor to the climate in South Beach. Winter is over in a heartbeat, and the happy reality is that the cooler months could still could pass for summer in most other places, making it the most popular time of year to visit. Summer and fall are hot and humid, and with the occasional thunderstorm crashing through in the afternoon. If you're looking to stretch your dollars a little, try visiting during the off-season between June and October, though it's worth knowing that low-season coincides with stormy season. Bring an umbrella, and keep a beady eye on that weather forecast.

Flop with Flipper in Florida's South Beach

Set on an island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, a South Beach vacation rental is all about the sandy beaches, and the Gulf Stream keeps the water nice and balmy. And if you're about more than just beach-based wildlife-watching, then South Beach won't disappoint. Florida has a rich range of natural environments, and its famous mangroves, swamps, and keys are all within striking distance of South Beach. Apart from the gators, Florida's most famous creature is the dolphin, and to have your very own Flipper moment you can get up close and personal with a dolphin experience at Miami Seaquarium.
