Miami-Dade County Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, King bed + twin , 1 Bath + Den (Sleeps 3 )

Key Biscayne is a peaceful upscale community with so much to offer, such as the famous Miami Seaquarium, the Bill Baggs Cape State Park, where the historic lighthouse is located and boating amongst others. If sports are your thing, you are just minutes away from one of the most beautiful and challenging par-72 golf courses in Florida and a world class tennis center, host of the Sony Ericsson Open.

If you need to pull yourself away from paradise for a bit, no worries you are just 15 minutes away from South Beach, Coconut grove and the Miami Intl. Airport. So come and enjoy what Key Biscayne has to offer, it doesn’t get better than this!

Keywords: Kick back and relax in this gorgeous 1 BR / 1 BA recently remodeled and beautifully decorated apartment, located just steps away from a private entrance to the beach and a block away from a shopping strip that has restaurants, boutique stores, a supermarket and a pharmacy.

An excellent location on Key Biscayne

  • 4 of 5

Key Biscayne is very densely populated with expensive homes and enormous high rise condos and apartments. This little gem is a one bedroom in a renovated older two story building ["Governor's Lodge"] on Sunrise Drive tucked away with other good properties only 100 yards or so from the beach and about 250 yards from shopping and excellent restaurants. The rooms are well furnished in South Florida style, comfortably understated in decor, and ample amenities, utensils, dishes and all you would expect. It was very comfortable and even cozy in the January rains and cooler temperatures. Note too that it has excellent air conditioning when needed.

You can walk the whole island including top-rated Crandon Park and Beach and Bill Bagg Park where we saw manatees, other wildlife, excellent views of Biscayne Bay and the lighthouse.

We will return.

Our Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation in the condo, and we couldn't have been happier. Very peaceful and quiet location, and it allowed us a delightful daily 10 min bike ride to Crandon Park and the Miami Open. Nearby restaurants and easy access to the residents-only beach were real treats, as was Key Biscayne's low-key vibe (despite the extra traffic and visitors due to the tennis tournament). Looking forward to coming back again soon.

Key Biscayne is a gem

  • 5 of 5

Both Key Biscayne and the apartment were awesome. The location of the place is very convenient as just a few blocks away from Key's Biscayne's private beach (only allowed for residents i.e. us during our stay) and nearby grocery shoppings and good restaurants. It feel so good to enjoy this isolated heaven far from the hustle and bustle of South Beach. An early birds walk in the sand towards the lighthouse was a must.

We could have got into trouble when I lost the apt's keys but the owner was really helpful to find a solution quickly.

Of course, you can find a more high-end apartment for twice the price but this one had everything we needed.

A great spot in Key Biscayne

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a 1-week vacation to KB, and were very happy to have found this condo. It's got a great location, on a quiet side street within easy walking distance of both the beach and the shops and restaurants on Crandon Blvd. The condo was clean and neat, and a perfect size for two. Breakfast on the outdoor patio every morning under the palms was a treat. Owner was easy to work with, responsive and very accomodating. We plan to rebook for 2015.
