Welcome to our vacation home! we love South Beach and come by in a monthly basis. That allow us to take meticulous care of our beloved property. Spotless clean is fundamental to us.

Why David Strouse chose Miami Beach

We met in South Beach, on the beach, and have always desired a second home here. The Carlyle has been our perfect vacation home, which we visit every six weeks at least.

Overall excellent experience! Not one problem from start to end. Lillian, the property manager, was hospitable and a great pleasure to work with. The condo itself was SUPERB and I couldn't have asked for anything else! We will definitely be returning to the Carlyle and really hope we're able to stay in Unit 3B again!

Thank You so much for the excellent accmodations as I celebrated my Birthday!!

Can't beat the location. Steps to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This location cannot be beat! The only improvements would be to have laundry detergent available and dish soap (since it's our responsibility to wash and put dishes away before check-out). However, great location and beautiful views! There could be a few more amenities for the price, however we enjoyed our stay and would consider staying again in the future. We typically use Airb&b, so we could have misunderstood the expectations of guests (responsible for trash pick up and dishes)! Thank you David and Marcello for trusting us in your beautiful home!

Amazing Stay, Amazing View, Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The location was perfect for walking to the beach and up and down Ocean Drive. The listing description and pictures were accurate it was exactly what we were expecting. The condo itself was clean, spacious, and very safe. For the most part it was pretty quiet for being in the center of a lot of action. I would definitely stay at this place again or recommend to a friend. This condo was in perfect walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and bars. We did not rent a car we just ubered to south pointe and walked almost everywhere else. For lunch we went to la sandwicherie twice, loved this place and only a few blocks away! We also went to the Sugar Factory for drinks during the day and enjoyed Mango's drinks and entertainment at night. We also visited Espanola Way on Washington Ave for lunch and dinner. For lunch we ate at Numero 28, great brick oven pizza and for dinner we had sushi at Moshi Moshi, the best volcano roll I've ever had! We also ubered to south pointe for Joe's Stone Crab (amazing seafood and service!!), Smith & Wollensky (steak, lobster mac & cheese, plus seating by the water), and Cibo Wine Bar (amazing wine cellar!). I would also recommend Nikki's Beach for a daytime cocktail, you could lay out on cabana beds listening to the DJ while a server brought you drinks. Overall we had a fantastic stay and really enjoyed having the condo in such a safe and convenient location.

HEAVEN !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Now that we've found heaven (Carlyle condo 3B) but it's only available for 2 people a day, should we write a review about it on VRBO telling everyone else about it?

We come to Miami Beach 4 weeks each year and have stayed many places. Now that we've found David & Marcelos condo, we won't stay any place else as long as they are kind enough to allow us to stay there. This condo is more than a vacation rental, but it's their Miami vacation condo that they are kind enough to rent out and should be treated with the respect and cleanliness it deserves! You should only stay here if you're the type of person who takes pride in maintaining a clean environment and treating other people's property with respect. The online pictures accurately represent the outstanding cleanliness, grand views and location of the condo. This condo is definitely the best value on the beach!

There is a full kitchen but we never use it because who wants to cook while on vacation and when you can get breakfast on Ocean Dr for $3-10 per person. And lunch or dinner on Ocean or Lincoln Rd for $10-100 per person. Don't cook, eat out and enjoy yourself.

There is a washer dryer in the unit which we find very convenient. Also there is a mini vac which we use to maintain the cleanliness of unit. As self proclaimed germo-phobes, cleanliness is very important to us in a rental, and this place beats our cleanliness expectations!

We're also fitness fanatics who appreciate this condo being right across the street from boardwalk/running path so we can do our morning run. And we are beach bums who spend all day at the beach which is right across the street.

Lillian the concierge is a real asset to the property and able to answer any questions or handle any issues that arise.

We've had the privilege of meeting the owners David & Marcelo and you couldn't ask for nicer, kinder, or more trustworthy people to rent from. This condo is FABULOUS and you'll absolute love it when you stay here. Please just don't stay here the 36 days of the year we need it. :)

Ideally located South Beach apartment for a perfect beach-side vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished and equipped apartment which lived up to the photos advertised. Washer/dryer facilities were a real plus and the apartment is very quiet given it's central location. Very pleasant view of the street and beach from the apartment. Very secure building. The apartment Manager, Lillian, went out of her way to assist us when we had an issue with the internet and we were connected again very quickly. (David is planning to change the old ethernet connection to wi-fi which will fix the problem). Apartment is located in the heart of the restaurant precinct with many more restaurants available in neighbouring streets, notably Lincoln Road. Beach is directly across the street. Like many of the beautiful art-deco buildings in the area, the building is currently being renovated/restored but we were not affected in any way. A very enjoyable place to stay and I highly recommend it.
