About Chris and Adilah

We live in Maine and enjoy traveling with our three kids. South Florida is our speedy destination of choice to escape the Maine winters.

Chris and Adilah purchased this condo in 2010

Why Chris and Adilah chose Miami-Dade County

Surfside is a very safe, family-friendly community. We were searching for a vacation home in a location that offered the ability to walk to several shops and restaurants and still feel relatively low key.

The lower unit level gives us both the amazing ocean view and the ability to get to the beach and pool in no time- a bonus when you have young kids and elderly parents.

We recently discovered the joys of leaving the kids behind for the occasional evening of oceanside dining at the Grand Beach Hotel to our left and the Four Seasons to our right.

What makes this condo unique

We are a family of runners, so we enjoy the biking/walking/running paths that run the length of the beach community and connect to neighboring beach communities.

Our unit has direct ocean views and provides a birds eye view of the pool area.

Unlike many of Miami's oceanside communities, Surfside still feels like a community. The twelve-story building height restrictions coupled with the tight-knit residential community across Collins Ave. give the town a friendly feel. This isn't a party town, but definitely a place to kick back and relax.

Known as Miami's "Uptown Beachtown", Surfside (Miami Beach) is perfectly situated between Bal Harbour and North Beach. This area is both incredibly family friendly and refined with plenty of local shops and restaurants within a short walking distance. The Shops at Bal Harbour are within a ten minute walk while nearby Harding Ave. is lined with plenty of options for dining.

Fantastic location, great property! Just like the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We just spend 12 days at Chris' property, my mom, my wife and our two kids. Children loved the quick access to the lovely beach and much appreciated pool after long sunny days. Everything was as advertised and the property is in mint condition. We did have a small hiccup when we arrived late in the evening: the inflatable mattress was not working properly, so I emailed Chris and he was so diligent that next day we got a brand new one! We were impressed by how quick Chris fixed this small detail! The apartment is fully furnished and while it is in a 3rd floor in reality is just 1 floor away from the pool! Thanks Chris, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at yours the next time.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The view,balcony,heated pool and steps away from the walking path and beach were the highlights. Interior was great,kitchen had everything we needed. This was the first time we stayed this high up (92nd street) and found the choice of stores and restaurants within walking distance were very good,wide variety of food choices and prices. Building staff were friendly and very helpful.We would stay here again.

Excellent family stay in a really quiet and convenient area

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay in Surfside. Originally, we wanted to be closer to South Beach, but were drawn here after a friend recommended the town. The unit was perfect. The unit was very clean and sunny with everything you need. Check-in and check out were a breeze. Chris, the host, was great to deal with.

I was grateful that it was right on the beach which made it easy to get back and forth with the kids and my nana. There are lots of restaurants on the main road and in nearby hotels. The Publix grocery store is only a couple blocks away. My nana and I ate breakfast on the deck each morning. It's not large, but big enough for the adults :)

I really love the location and the unit. I was sad to leave the wonderful view. We're considering coming back again for our summer vacation. I think we found a vacation spot for the next couple years or so.

Good location - Poor unit

  • 2 of 5

Over all, the property rates a POOR when compared to other condos we have stayed in.

While the location was good and the unit had all the amenities described, it had three significant draw backs:

1. the unit needs a thorough cleaning - dirt build-up on base boards, rusty sink bases, etc.

2. the unit needs a face lift - walls & floors are in rough shape. i.e. walls have been patched but not smoothed out properly before painting.

3. Most importantly the NOISE!!! The garage entry gate is directly below the unit's master bedroom and is mounted to the same concrete that makes up the bedroom floor. Every time someone opens or closes the gate, it sounds like a trash truck is in the bedroom with you (in the act of dumping cans into itself). This starts before 6:00 AM and goes on until after mid-night.

Owner's Response: We regret that your stay did not yield another excellent review. Our attempt is to please all of our guests and respond to their needs promptly. We wish that you would have given us a phone call, text, or email so that we could have helped you enjoy your stay. Cleanliness is very important to us, so if there is ever an issue, we would like to hear from you. It’s our home. We want to take good care of it. I have to differ about the statement of dirt buildup on the baseboards. I was in Miami on business and drove by and inspected the unit after the cleaning agent had just finished up. I’m pretty hawkish (which is why I showed up in the first place :) The sink basins are made of glass and ceramic. They can’t rust. There is no rust in the kitchen sink. It’s all of three years old. The unit is up-to-date. Bed spreads match. Colors are coordinated throughout. Our cleaning agent not only cleans the walls in between each stay, she also paints every third stay to cover suitcase marks/dings. An area below the window in the guest room is patched and painted over. We’ll try to work on the cleaner’s patchwork skills or leave the holes as a guest amenity. I get the sense that the tenant’s vindictive comments stem from the garage noise. In 2012, the owner garage motor was going bad and got replaced after a courteous guest notified us. It had been fine until the building recently upgraded to a stronger motor. Apparently, it is a bit too strong because it creates a noise that reverberates in the master bedroom. A recent guest who arrived after your departure notified us about the garage noise. I made a complaint to the condo association and was able to find a solution within an hour. We simply requested that the owner parking area remain open overnight until the noise/motor issue was resolved. The moral: If there is something that is ruining your stay, contact the owner/agent. We are here to help. It’s our investment. It’s your vacation. Please be responsive.
