Overview

Miami-Dade County Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Gorgeous three bedroom condo in a small, friendly, garden type building, just steps away from the beach, with a private, residents only entrance! And WHAT A BEACH! (Crandon Park Beach is rated among the best Beaches in the USA!) We share our beach with the famous Ritz-Carlton Hotel, a great place to have a light lunch, or sip cocktails in their Beach Bar, a favorite of Sir Paul!

Key Biscayne is an upscale island, has a great GOLF COURSE, a world class TENNIS CENTER, a MARINA where you can charter a sailboat or a fishing vessel, a BIKE rental store, FINE RESTAURANTS and WINE CELLERS. The KEY is joined to Miami by a causeway, the location of the MIAMI SEAQUARIUM, a not to be missed attraction. It is located just 15 minutes away from MIAMI BEACH and the famous South Beach Art Deco District, enchanting Coconut Grove and the Miami Airport. JUST PERFECT!

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at "Paradise Found!" Family of five with three kids ages 6-11 y/o. We came in at the tail end of the tennis tourney, not being fans and not even knowing it would be in town when we began looking. The island was busier during the tourney, but still quiet and relaxing atmosphere. This is the only unit with balcony directly overlooking the pool allowed for adult relaxation while the kids played under our "supervision." Friendly tenants in the building is always an added plus and we found that with pleasant and welcoming neighbors. The condo is large and very well-equipped. Easy walk to the beach and "private," entrance is a nice feature with bathroom and other facilities just steps from the water. Owners were incredibly attentive and responsive in answering any and all questions. Key Biscayne is a treasure, well-known to locals but, surprisingly unknown otherwise as least in MN! Great locations for families of all ages!

Great Stay in Key Biscayne

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing christmas week at "Paradise Found" on Key Biscayne. This tastefully and very comfortably furnished condo provided ample space for my husband, our college-aged daughter and me. Condo was very clean. Raoul was a very responsive text away and so helpful. When the hot water heater failed Raoul had IT FIXED THAT DAY! SO IMPRESSED!!!

We rented bikes from Mangrove Cycles and enjoyed three 20 mile bike rides around the island as well as over to Coconut Grove. The state park, the village of KB, and Crandon Park are filled with bike-friendly paths.

Walking around the corner from the condo afforded us access to the beach for long walks, sunning, and swimming. Beach chairs and mats were provided in the condo.

We enjoyed the following dining spots: The Boulangerie (KB)for croissants, sandwiches, and breakfasts; Ayesha (KB) for terrific Indian food; Angelique Euro Cafe in Coral Gables for steaks and fish; Doraku on Lincoln Rd in Miami Beach for sushi; SuViche and Fireman Derek's Pies in Wynnwood; Costa Med (KB) for pastas and grilled meat and fish; Versailles for Cuban food but EVEN better was Versailles's pastry shop. a delicious week in Miami

Paradise was found!

  • 5 of 5

Once we found our way around the neighborhood we really enjoyed our stay. The condo is very clean and it worked well as home base for myself, my wife, and our 19 year old son. The private beach entrance/park is great. It has bathrooms and outdoor showers. On hot days we sat in the park under shady palms while watching and listening to the ocean. I literally walked 50 miles during our week and also cycled 25 miles on the island, the trails are great. Walking into Bill Baggs Park on the beach from the condo was paradise found for me. I really enjoyed stopping at the Boaters Grill at the No Name Harbor in Bill Baggs Park while on my hikes. The Lighthouse Cafe must have been having a bad day when I stopped for breakfast. If you walk to the lighthouse on the beach continue through the parking lot and you'll get a great view of Stiltsville (Google it). I also enjoyed walking the beach toward Miami. After you pass through Crandon Park you'll come to a fossilized reef. I recommend visiting the wildlife area in Crandon Park. There are lots of peacocks and other birds roaming freely. We had some wonderful meals on Key Biscayne. The Beach Bar at the Ritz was great (best mahi sandwich I ever had) and Cioppino at the Ritz was great too. I also enjoyed Ayesha (Indian) and the El Gran Inka (Peruvian). We saw lots of critters we're not used to seeing too. The highlight was a manatee right off the beach opposite the private beach entrance. My only regret was I didn't bring my fins and mask. Many people swam off the beach and saw large rays and puffer fish. Although Key Biscayne is quiet, if you need a change of pace Miami is very close. On our departure day we spent the day in Fort Lauderdale. Ft. Lauderdale has a wonderful beach and boardwalk (not wild like Miami Beach) The owners Raoul and Gachi were great to deal with. I'd go back.

Key Biscayne Jewel

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a perfect place to stay for my first visit to Key Biscayne. The location is excellent, close to the beach, a Winn Dixie, restaurants and shopping. You can bicycle everywhere and rentals are available within walking distance. The condo is beautifully decorated, clean, bright with a southern exposure, well laid out and large enough for 2 couples, yet cozy enough for one person. Everything worked perfectly. I was alone for part of my visit and felt very safe in the condo and neighborhood. The owners are great - very responsive and helpful. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone visiting Key Biscayne that wants close access to the beach but doesn't want to pay the high price for an ocean view.
