Wonderful Key Biscayne Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the holiday at this apartment and really enjoyed our stay! The building is situated on a quiet palm lined street with immaculate lawns and gardens. Very nice for evening walks! The apartment building has a retro feel, immaculate and very very nice with a private pool. The apartment itself was very clean, and very comfortable. The kitchen is small but nice with everything needed for cooking. The appliances are all new and in good working order. The living area is a nice size that worked for our family (three children). There are two bedrooms with adequate sized closets and two very nice bathrooms with beautifully tiled showers. The building has a laundry room which I found convenient. This apartment is within walking distance to nearby stores and shops and literally a five minute walk to a private beach. It is also accessible to the causeway and main land for trips to Miami. Finally, the owners are very nice, professional and prompt in responding to any issues. Overall, it was a pleasant and relaxing stay. I would rent this apartment again only next time, I would plan to stay longer.

Perfect Beach Apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 5 day stay at this great apartment on Key Biscayne. We were on the Key to watch the Miami Open and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. One block from the beach and close to everything we had a marvelous time. The apartment is cute and well appointed. Two couples stayed and each couple had their own bathroom which was nice and we all loved taking a dip in the pool when we would get back in the evening. Would highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a fun beach vacation. We are already talking about a return trip next year! The owner was easy to work with from the start of the booking process to checking in to following up after.

Adequate

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The apt. Was roomy and well equipped. Claudia was great to deal with and I had my deposit back in my account the day after we checked out. The air conditioner in the second. Bedroom is so loud I don't know how you could. Sleep there. The beach is very nice and only a short walk. We enjoyed Key Biscayne.

My #1 choice three years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

This charming beach apartment is my family's top pick three years in a row. Ideally located between Crandon Blvd and the beach you will find yourself with easy and quick access to a beautiful sandy beach park, shopping center with grocery store, community center with high-end fitness machines, community park with playground the kids will adore, and of course, some of South Florida's finest dining experiences. This traditional Florida three story boutique condominium with a centrally located swimming pool and deck boasts ample parking for cars and bicycles. With no stairs to climb or elevators to wait on, this first floor apartment makes moving in a breeze eliminating the need for a balcony as as the pool deck is just steps from your door. Beautifully appointed accouterments throughout the apartment sets the tone for a much needed, enjoyable, and relaxing vacation.

Ok, but not great

  • 2 of 5

This place has a good location, and that is about it. The apartment building is old and depressing. The apartment is also pretty old and cheesy. The kitchen cabinets were sticky and gross, and inspired no cooking. The bedrooms which have 2 twin beds, and they say they can make a king, which just means they push them close to each other, not a king bed at all. The sheets are thin, and there is no mattress cover so you can feel the labels on the mattress underneath. Worst of all, the bedrooms face the back parking lot which is really brightly lit, and the shades do not at all block out the light, so you are trying to sleep in a spotlight. Not good.

The owner/manager isn't super responsive, wants you to look at the "app" for everything.

Stay here only if you can't find or afford anything else. I will not go back.

Map

Car: recommended

Key Biscayne is a quiet quaint island near Miami. There are many family activities to do on the island and it is only a 10 min drive from downtown Miami, Miami Beach, Miami’s art district, and many other activities South Florida has to offer.

Golf:

Crandon was the site of the Senior PGA Tour for the past 18 years, attracting golf’s greats including Lee Trevino, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Don Messengale, Ray Floyd and Gary Player. The course is considered one of the most beautiful and difficult par-72 courses in the state. Crandon’s seventh hole is touted as “One of the Greatest Holes in Golf,” a gorgeous par 4 that doglegs to the right and sends your golf ball soaring over the beautiful bay. The course has been rated in the top ten courses by Golfweek, and one of America's top 75 upscale courses by Golf Digest.
