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.

We have stayed in this beautiful condo multiple time! Best location! Perfect condo! Love the views!
Thank you for staying with us. Please visit again.
Clean and simple design.
Loved the location. The windows were surprisingly quiet and allowed us to sleep while the nightlife continued just outside.
Thank you for staying with us. Please visit again, soon.
I never really write reviews but here I am. I stayed here for spring break and this wonderful spot really contributed to my overall Spring Break experience. It's seconds away from the beach, spacious, and has such a comfortable atmosphere. I recommend staying here for sure. 10/10

Good accommodations, perfect location, great price
My husband and I stayed here the first week of March 2018. You really couldn't ask for a better location. The condo was lovely, and a really great value! Just two things: 1) It's not the most comfortable bed, and 2) the bathroom could use a bigger/wider mirror. But neither of those things will keep us from trying to book this again for a future visit. Oh, and Lillian is wonderful. Thanks, David and Marcelo, for sharing your place with us!
Thanks for staying with us. The best to you both!
Awesome location but very poor conditions inside
My wife and I stayed the 3rd week of January 2018. Below is a brief summary. Please know that I have never written negatively about stay before.
1). We read in an earlier review of a guest that stayed in this unit in late 2017 that the toilet made a “blood curdling scream” when flushed. We didn’t pay attention to that comment but for your benefit you should if you want to sleep. Not only does the toilet make an alarm sound due to faulty and/or old plumbing but the tank leaks which causes the toilet “alarm - blood curdling scream” to go off periodically all day and night which is the most bothersome if you like to sleep.
2) The family/TV room furniture (sofa and two chairs) are very dated and as a result is heavily stained and reeks of odor. Even if you put towels on them the cushions are so spent it is like sitting on the wood frame.
3) When we arrived the “clerk” at the front desk told us they was a problem!!! Turned out the previous renter damaged the backsplash mirror behind the cooktop and it was in place but completely shattered. She said that a contractor was supposed to arrive and replace that day so we said no big deal. Turned out that was not accurate and when I checked on our third day I was told that there was an issue with the contractor. This prevented us from doing any cooking.
4). If you want to watch the little dated tv or use the dvd be prepared to manually operate them from the device as all of the remote controls don’t work.
5) The bed is also very dated and is tough to sleep on if your are used to comfortable mattress.
Bottom line is this beautiful building in a excellent location but it has a least one unit that has not been maintained and the owner is obviously not advertising these issues. He also does also not advertise the very high cleaning fee or the very high security deposit.
To make matters worse I contacted him via email to let him know how disappointed and dissatisfied based on the above and he asked me to call him to discuss. I called him and he immediately went on the attack accusing me of lying and trying to scam him for requesting a credit due to the above.
Do yourself a favor and even if you have to spend a little more find something else!
Sorry your visit was not perfect.
As Lillian explained, we had only 24 hours earlier discovered the enormous damage caused by the prior guest. Lillian offered to find another apartment; you said the inconvenience was ok.
Everything you mention has been corrected. It simply took time
You told me over the phone AFTER your stay that 'you had not yet written your review' and that you expected a 100% refund.' When I refused -- since you had made no complaints during several conversations will Lillian -- you responded with an expletive.
It is clear why you have never written an unfavorable review; other owners probably acquiesced to your subtle threat.
The perfect spot on South Beach
What a find, to be in the heart of South Beach, with access to everything. The location also provides the added perk of having a public parking garage right around the corner for anyone driving. Easy to get around the area, and fun too to explore areas off the beach. The condo was perfect size too.
