Location is perfect for the party life. Upon arrival the apartment I was under the impression I was getting was not it, I booked this spot for the view of the balcony once inside our view consist of another building. The bathroom had a leak in the vent, I contacted the owner he said he was gonna send maintenance they never came! Once inside the apartment smelled like mildew and moisture I'm not sure if they was some sort of water damage but there was definitely water in the air.. all of my clothes, sheets, everything were damp! Horrible horrible spot! Contacted Benjamin and never got back to me! First time in Miami and my property makes me not want to come back!

Owner's Response: sorry florida is not for you. you visited in the hottest and humid time of year which is September. If you controlled the A/C AS I ADVISED YOU TO, THERE WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN ANY PROBLEMS. I suggest you consider a cooler place for your next vacation.

nice clean place in the middle of all the action.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was great to deal with and answered any questions we had. The condo was perfect for 2 people and had a large bathroom, king sized bed and a kitchen to prepare small meals. The terrace had a view of the ocean and great for morning coffee.

Location was great. Need major upgrade in mattress; comforter & sheets. Not enough bath; wash & hand towels. Only one roll of toilet paper. Better cleaning would have been appreciated.

Amazing location in the heart of all the south beach action

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful area of south beach. Quaint typical Miami Beach condo right in the hub. We had a couple of minor issues, but great communication & resolution with the property owner.

The unit is very convenient for access to the beach, great balcony view of the beach & nightlife.

Only good part is location and the pool

  • 2 of 5

Upon arrival, we were allowed to check-in earlier than 3 which was great! But, we were quickly notified that the elevator was out and would be fixed since they Que been working on it since 9am. The elevator was not fixed for the entire 4-day stay and walking down 4 flights of stairs with heels is no fun! Other guests said they were told the same story prior to our arrival.

The unit was pretty nicely setup and the terrace was nice. The bathroom ceiling and shower curtain liner are pretty gross and needs to be replaced. Also the ceiling leaks when the shower or bath are turned on. Ben was pretty responsive to the complaint but this doesn't seem like a new issue and it also wasn't resolved throughout our stay. I was told "No who even knows if they will come at all".

Being located in the middle of Ocean Drive was good especially for the price and the pool is really nice. But there is a lot of bad with this unit.

Owner's Response: I am sad to hear that your vacation at my condo was not as expected. I was not aware of the broken elevator. I assure you that the condo association made every effort to fix the elevator. I had no control over the situation ,so I am sorry you find me responsible. During your stay ,there had been over 5 inches of rain and the roof was leaking. You informed me of this and I contacted the condo association immediately. You had demanded that someone come and fix the problem immediately. Unfortunately I do not have control over the management company of the condo and have to depend on their assistance. Maybe renting a condo on a vacation rental website is not suited for you.
