What makes this villa unique

South Miami Beach is the meeting place for artists and art lovers around the world. Special Art shows occur at the Miami Convention Center which is only 2.5 miles away. The property is also a short walk to the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful beaches and a tropical climate makes this location a hot spot any time of the year! Our beautiful home is a blend of vintage 1932 Art Deco architecture with all the convenient upgrades of modern living. The very unique design features a private studio suite to offer complete privacy for a single or couple, an apartment within a home. It's classic Art Deco!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great trip and the treatment before, during and even after we occupied the villa was excellent. We will definitely be back next year. The location was excellent and the neighborhood was top notch.

Worth every penny!! Location, Location, Location and extreme Comfort,

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in the Celebrity twice and both times I left knowing that it was the best value for money I could have spent. If you are familiar with South Beach, you know that Alton Road and environs (north bay rd) is where you want to stay. It's immediately away from the hustle and bustle of the Collins ave, Ocean ave and Washington ave "traffic" yet close enough to enjoy all the 'goodies' SoBe has to offer with or without a car. The house itself is gorgeous, nice pool and hot tub, bathrooms in all rooms....very well kept for a house of its age, very nice kitchen, laundry room and the most comfortable couches ever in the living room.

I will reccrecommend staying at this property to anyone. Best value for money for groups.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The property has been recently remodeled and we found it to be a comfortable relaxing home for our one week visit. The house is located in a beautiful residential area amidst multi million dollar estates. My family enjoyed the heated pool and the beach was close enough for us to walk to every day we were there. The drive to South beach took about 10 minutes to make shopping and fun easy.

The Art Deco design gives it a unique charm yet has been upgraded with all modern conveniences. The pool is heated to make swimming comfortable and the landscaping is well groomed.

We found the management to be friendly and available at all times to answer questions about the property and area. We are looking forward to our next visit to Miami Beach and would love to stay at this property again.

not what it appears

  • 2 of 5

this home was described as being a luxury celebrity home and the pictures are either old or taken at angles that are not really representative of this home. it was a big disappointment for me and my family. the house had a musty odor throughout. some of the bathrooms reeked of urine. we even found 2 live lizards in one of the upstairs closets. the beds and linens were not what you would expect of a "luxury" home as described. couldn't wait to leave the property, this place might be good for college kids on spring break. I really could not recommend this to a friend or relative. the nice thing is that the manager Min was easy to communicate with and the agency also had good communication.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed to get this poor review since we were never given the chance to make this guest more comfortable. We pride ourselves on maintaining excellent properties and just hours before this guest’s arrival, a crew of 3 scrubbed the place top to bottom using disinfectant in the baths and kitchen. Any smell would have been dealt with immediately, if communicated to our property manager. This property is in Miami Beach... a very tropical and moist area, just a block from the water. Dehumidifiers are used during the summer, but are rarely needed in the spring. We would have happily turned them on for this guest. And unfortunately, lizards come with the sun and the beach. They are completely harmless and only come in if the doors are left open. The lense that was used to photograph our property is a wide angle lense, used to capture as much of the room as possible. We aren’t hiding anything! This can distort the size of the rooms, but this is a lovely home with plenty of space to settle in. We are not sure of the expectation of this guest as far as linens, but sheets and towels are all fresh and clean and 100% cotton. This property is not at all appropriate for college kids on spring break. This is a very lovely 1930’s home in an exclusive and quiet neighborhood.
