Why Ali chose Miami Beach

I live in New York City and for the most part I love it except for one thing. The cold in winter which was the reason for buying this little condo. I’d have a delightful bolt hole in the sun where I could escape to from time to time and get out of the dreary New York winter. That was the plan anyway. Haven’t spent nearly as much time in my South Beach studio as I originally envisaged but the hope lives on.

What makes this studio unique

Another huge plus of the condo for me is the proximity to the beach. I love swimming in the ocean. Here I have it only a few hundred yards away from my front door. Put on some flip flops and a pair of swimming trunks and I’m in that lovely water before breakfast, with the beach all to myself except for the early morning joggers. And the Del Rio is a low rise building with not that many apartments which is great because I hate the impersonality of high rises and having to say hello to the doorman. Miami Beach has come a long way since I first visited in the mid eighties. Lincoln Road is a huge draw and so is Ocean Drive. And all the shops, the movie house, the symphony and theater, the ballet, the great restaurants are within easy walking distance.

Very pleased with my accomadations at this studio South Beach condo. From the inquiry for reserving, making reservation, advance payment.....all was completed within 24 hours. One week prior I received my detailed info as promised for my arrival the next week. This was my first visit to South Beach, Miami and I couldn't have been happier with the location and the price. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is the bed is very firm, not very comfortable sleeping, and the Murphy frame could use some cleaning. There also was some confusion with on site manager with my contracted checkout time. I text the reservation coordinator and his response was very prompt, efficient and honored my contract with contacting onsite manager. I would definitely stay here again, as I found South Beach a tropical, cosmopolitan, Art Deco heavenly paradise! Next time for a much longer stay!

When my fiancée and I arrived, we were pleased to see that our room was very clean and more spacious than the pictures had shown. You will not find a better deal anywhere else! Renter was responsive with great communication and information. Parking is available a block away if you have a rental for $20 a day. 1 block from the beach with all the amenities for it. Highly recommended!

Great for the budget minded traveler!

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed in this rental for a week this May. The rental was clean, and well equipped with supplies for the beach (umbrellas, towels, and even shovels for sand castles!). The kitchen also contained all the necessary items if you planned on dining in (which we did a few times). This rental was by no means the Taj Mahal, however I would definitely recommend it to family and or friends due to its adequately priced weekly rate, especially so close to the beach! This unit is literally 1 block from the sand! The owner's assistant was very helpful and accomodating to all of our requests and all in all this was a very great place! We look forward to renting this unit again on our next South Beach Adventure!

The location was awesome...everything you came for is right there!

  • 5 of 5

I travelled together with a friend and we both loved our apartment. It's equipped with everything you need.. and everything you came for is only a few steps away. Also I have to point out the renting process, Ali was very helpful with everything and answered all the questions right away in a very friendly manner. The apartment and the whole facility was keyless, you only had to remember some codes to get in... so we never had to worry about searching for the key. :)

The aircondition was also very good and the bed/ table construction was easy to handle. I was also pleasantly surprised that we didn't hear any street noise, we only heard the aircondition at night.

On our last day we have been allowed to use the apartment for no extra charges, until we needed to go to the airport, which was at 4 PM... you don't get that in any hotel, that was excellent!

Thank you Daniel and Ali, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return when visiting Miami. :)
