North Beach Studio Rental Photos and Description

Newly Renovated Studio Apartment, Sleeps 2-4

I offer an awesome home away from home. It's a perfect get away for any occasion. Imagine waking up to a gentle ocean breeze coming into the apartment as you enjoy a spectacular tropical beach scene from the comfort of your own bed. Then, enjoying a peaceful breakfast on the terrace with these unobstructed and endless beach views.

This beach apartment has recently had an extensive renovation with from the floors up!

This includes a new kitchen with marble counter and glass backsplash, bathroom, queen murphy bed and futon couch/bed, just to name a few. There is also a huge walk-in closet. This apartment is even more magnificent than the photos. 

The apartment is also self-contained with many of the luxuries of home; refrigerator/freezer, 2 burner stove top, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, etc.

In addition to the breath taking views on the terrace, you will find a table, chairs, and a couple of loungers for relaxing and soaking in the sunshine. Since the apartment is a non smoking one, the terrace is a good place to enjoy a smoke if that's your bag! I also provide you with quality beach chairs, an umbrella and a cooler. I take great pride in making my beach apartment an excellent product at an excellent price.

The apartment is located a block north of the Miami Beach area called Millionaires Row and is 12-15 minutes from the excitement and nightlife of South Beach, yet, far enough away to enjoy a quiet getaway. The area is very safe and there are many shops, restaurants, grocery, drug and liquor stores, etc., all within a short walking distance.

From my experience, I believe the quality you'll receive from me will stand out from all others in this price range. 

I have great reviews is because I do as much as possible to provide a great beach front apartment at a great price. As a result I have many guests from all over the world who return year after year and recommend this apartment to their friends. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Awesome unit!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect getaway place for my wife and I. Awesome views of the ocean from the huge balcony. The Casablanca has extremely easy access to the beach. There is a 7/11 across the street for ice, cigarettes, beer, etc... The owner was extremely helpful and nice. South beach is just a short drive to the bars, shops, and nice restaurants. Thanks for the perfect Miami beach experience.

I've been using VRBO for over 15 years but never have i experienced the level of service given by Christine! My two girlfriends and I were so pampered! A quick list of what she did that was unexpected: 1) outfitted the kitchen with anything I requested (I'm a chef so that was a big ask) include yummy cheese just waiting for our late arrival, 2) left stamped postcards for us to send to family and friends, 3) Had our favorite shampoo, conditioner and body wash. (Pantene and Olay.... I'm a former P&G employee!), 4) We each had our own bath puff, 5) beds were made and had towel "swans" sitting on them!, 6) left a great note to introduce us to the neighbors, 7) FREE parking. AND MORE!

The location cannot be beat. We had an efficiency just off the beach with an amazing view. The updated apt was very tastefully remodeled and pristine clean. We spent a lot of time at the pool and at the beach which were both clean and close! My husband and I are already talking about when we can go down and enjoy this little gem together!

I had spent time in this area before and loved being able to walk right down the street to Astrid's French Bakery (OMG!!) I also love Sanvo cuban restaurant. Other than those diner beware....I haven't eaten anywhere else I would recommend although there may be other good places.

It is great to fix your own food. Just know that as an efficiency the kitchen area is very small and there is no oven. You will have two burners, microwave, coffee maker, blender, electric tea pot and nice sized fridge.

Thank you Christine!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay on the beach in Miami I couldn't recommend any better than this. Cozy,clean, and a spectacular view!!! Christine really took care of us! I had just met my now wife for the first time in person in Miami and we stayed here after our cruise. We felt like we were on our honeymoon even before we got married!!!! Christine and the Staff at the Casablanca were great! Trust us you will not be disappointed at all staying here. What a beautiful place and Christine is super to deal with! A really great person! We would live there if I could!!!!

Beautiful view; good value; great starting point

  • 4 of 5

We booked the condo at the Casablanca for a 3 day, 40th birthday getaway. The Casablanca hotel itself (especially the corridors) is underwhelming and farther than I would have preferred from South Beach, but it was a great value and well maintained/ updated within the condo itself. The view was spectacular and the accommodations were very comfortable. Parking is included with the condo, which was a plus for our rental car from Ft.Lauderdale. Uber is a must from here though, beating the cost of trying to park and tipping the valet at night. The Clevelander was a must to go to if you like outdoor dancing. We didn't eat meals there except breakfast, although it has a kitchenette. By staying there, we were able to afford to go out to Juvia at Lincoln Road Mall with the best view of Miami Beach, Larios on the Beach (excellent Cuban food recommended by locals), and Scarpetta's at the Fountainebleu. We were also able to walk 5 miles down the beach to Lummus Park and then rent Citibikes (everywhere along the paths) to make it down to the South Beach Pier at the point. We enjoyed a boat tour of the man made islands and were fortunate to have a little bit of beach time, a break in the cold spell.

The owner was very communicative and prompt with questions. She was a pleasure to do business with. The only minuses were that, although our flight was delayed an hour, pushing our arrival time back an hour to the condo, the cleaning service was still in our room for a while when we got there. Although the neighbors were very friendly, the deck was not private and the walls were thin, only noticeable during cooking times.

If you are looking for a good value, clean accommodations, and a great view, I would recommend this condo to you in Miami Beach.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Casablanca. It is right on the ocean with a balcony large enough for a small party! Go down to the pool or the beach, the Casablanca has everything you need. Valet parking prevents hunting for a space in overcrowded Miami Beach. Chris did everything in her power to make our stay delightful! Do it!!

An amazing stay for an amazing price!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but awesome things to say about this rental and the owner, Christine. From the moment I saw the pictures and reviews on VRBO, I knew this place was special. My correspondence with Christine was incredibly helpful and she did everything to make my stay amazing- she even researched fitness centers for me because I mentioned I like to work out. The condo was impeccably clean and well kept with an all-marble bathroom and granite kitchen. We had full use of the hotel facilities including everything that was in the condo- beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, etc. The bed was incredibly comfortable and each night I slept like a baby. The view from the balcony was just as the pictures and reviews depicted. It was beautiful overlooking the Miami beach and ocean and provided a perfect setting for breakfast in the mornings and drinks in the evenings. The check-in/check-out process was so simple and added to a relaxing vacation. I'd highly recommend this rental and I'd definitely stay in this VRBO again. Thank you Christine!
