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.
David Strouse purchased this condo in 2008
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.
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. :)
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.
Stayed for the weekend with my husband. It was our first time to South Beach. Great location in the heart of SB Art Deco Area. Perfect place for quick weekend before heading to the Keys. Great location to walk everywhere. No need for a car. Take the bus to SB from the airport ( M150) and it drops you on 13th which is 2 blocks from the rental. No need to hassle with parking. We followed Anthony Bourdain's advise and headed to Mac's Duece Club 1 1/2 blocks away for a cold one. Dinner at The Raleigh after the beach. Rent bikes and cruise the South Point Park and the boardwalk area. AWESOME. Had dinner the next evening at Yardbird. FANTASTIC and staff off the charts great. We will be back.
It was a privilege to be able to stay at The Carlyle. The pictures are to be believed. This was the first place I've ever stayed that you could eat off the floor. The term 'mirror-like gleam" comes to mind. My shoes never touched the floor. You see something well-cared for & you want to keep it that way. Very little noise from the neighborhood at night and I'm a light sleeper. Parking is either out front on Ocean Drive (if your timing is good) or in a parking deck diagonally across 13th Street from The Carlyle. No waiting for the valet to fetch your car from goodness knows where on THEIR timetable no less. Guests are provided with a special key fob for elevator access to the upper floors, meaning no random tourists are wandering the halls. Lillian at the desk is a TREMENDOUS asset to the property going out of her way for me on checkout day. David & Marcelo have a real gem on their hands and I hope to be able to make it back there soon!
The location and concierge Lillian are great, and the condo is as pictured but owner David failed to give any indication of the major refurbishment project underway. A good portion of the building's exterior is draped in black fabric & has scaffolding. Step in to the building lobby for more draping; not the atmosphere you're given to expect.
There was significant construction noise, particularly on the first two days and final day of a six-night stay, akin to living inside a giant dentist's drill. On the morning after arrival, I began my yoga routine in the living room - but changed plans after not one, but two, of the construction crew repeatedly stopped in font of this third (yes) floor window to sip drinks, before 9:00 a.m.
When renting a vacation property, it is reasonable to hope you would not find people staring in the windows of a third floor condo, or encounter loud, ongoing construction noise. I've edited my review as VRBO did not accept the first submission, even though it was balanced and fair. Perhaps this will meet VRBO's criteria, which seems to benefit owners.
I can't express how much I enjoy staying at David's place when I am in South Beach. The place is home away from home for me and booking it is even easier. I have stayed at this particular unit morse than once and it will be more to come. I can't say not one negative thing about this place.
