|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Enjoy the convenience of a great location in a clean and quiet updated studio located inside a hotel building! Which mean you get access to a 24 hours front desk ( say you lost your key at the beach...).
You're only 2 blocks from the beach and 1 block from fashionable retailers, restaurants, bars, convenience stores, bike rentals & parking structure!
FREE WiFi & NETFLIX!
It's just been tastefully renovated too! While it is 240 sqft, you can comfortably enjoy a luxurious queen size bed, a bistro size table and stools, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, basic silverware & glasses, sink, fridge with freezer (there's an ice machine on the Solarium), ice cool Air Conditioning, a luggage rack, a large closet, and hospitality soap, shampoo, conditioner & body wash (you're not likely to see this in many other rentals, they often make you bring your own toilet paper)! You obviously get fresh towels and linens, however daily turnover/cleaning and breakfast is not included in the rate.
My condo is permitted under a condo hotel license available at check in.
I pride myself in offering an accommodation that will be up to what I would expect from this listing, which is to say all efforts have been made to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. If something is not to your liking, please let me know and my team and I will strive to please you.
Joe Lecomte purchased this studio in 2015
I love the convenience of the location in the middle of all the South Beach attractions, yet it's located in the first quiet block away from all the fun! I also really enjoy renting a city bike that I can park right across the unit of the other side of the street and parking the car a block away (parking is difficult even when you are a resident)
Visit us in off season for reduced rates, same great scenery and no crowds - yet still get your tan in ( you'll still going to need sunscreen!)
We stay in South Beach every year in February. We picked this condo for the location(8th and Washington) and we liked the fact that there was 24 hour staff at the front desk which is unusual for a condo building. The room was rather small and the TV was difficult to figure out how to use. It was very quiet except for Friday and Saturday night which always are a bit louder because it's South Beach. We were warned that it could be a little loud on those nights so it wasn't a surprise. Could use a night stand by the bed. Overall nice room and good value for a quick stay in South Beach.
What I LOVED:
* Beautiful bright and clean space!
* Modern decor that fits the space perfectly!
* Comfy bed with quality sheets and cover!
* Great shower pressure and temperature!
* Dishes, cups, wine opener, silverware, etc!
* Awesome lighting and natural light during the day!
* View is over the Solarium!
* Quiet during the night! I had no trouble sleeping.
* Closet with hangers, safe, beach chairs and umbrellas!
* Perfect location: 10 minute walk to beach, nestled amongst a variety of shops, restaurants and eateries!
* Great all natural cafe at the corner with fresh juices, salads, wraps, breakfast, lunch and dinner: open 24 hours! Cafe Del Mar
* Staff was AWESOME: Vanessa, Miguel, and Michelle and gave high regards to Owner Joe and his kindness!
* Joe was professional, timely and detailed!
* Hotel lobby had complimentary coffee, water and snacks for purchase. Along with menus for food delivery, books for reading and computer for use.
* Fast return of deposit!
What I recommend:
*Wifi belongs to Royal Hotel. I recommend Higher speed internet or private wifi for room only. Wifi works but Netflix and mobile would stall here and there depending on time of day when more people where probably using the Internet.
Overall WONDERFUL stay and I am already making arrangements for my next stay!
Had a great stay here. Joe was very helpful and was able to answer questions at any time. He even helped us out with a late check out. The people at the desk jn the lobby were amazing as well and helped us out when looking for places to go explore and eat. It was close to the beach, but far enough away from all of the noise so that we could relax and have a good time. Loved having the beach chairs and umbrellas to use. Made it a lot easier to go to the beach :)
Loved location. Friendly and helpful people. Owner was available and helpful as well.
Pictures are very accurate of the room. The room took a little longer than they said for it to be ready but was still clean. Location is great, right in the middle of everything. We walked everywhere didn't need a car, only two clocks from the beach. The owner was very friend, informative and helpful. I would rent from him again
Estuvimos una semana con mi novio y nos encantó el estudio de Joe. Muy bien ubicado, vista a la calle y sin embargo no escuchamos ruidos. Cocina completa, todo limpio. Wifi y Tv con buena señal. La recepción del hotel con buena predisposición para darnos recomendaciones e información. Joe es muy buen anfitrión, siempre nos contestó los mails y consultas sin demoras. Volveríamos sin dudas, muy recomendable.
You're 2 blocks from the beach, yet so many convenient shops are on the block: restaurants, cafes, liquor shop, bike rentals. Also, as you walk towards the beach you'll find great retail stores like Diesel, Banana Republic, A/X Armani Exchange, Kenneth Cole. You'll enjoy Zara, Victoria Secret, Club Monaco and many others on another block. There's a great place for breakfast on Ocean drive called News Cafe. You're one block from high end retailers on Collins Ave and 2 blocks from Ocean drive with the Art Deco hotels you've seen in the movies.
You're in walking distance of Espaniola Way - a pedestrian way full of restaurants AND Lincoln Road - a pedestrian way with many, many retailers, restaurants and bars.
On a separate note, please remember this is South Beach where there is a never ending party. You might be bothered by neighbors on Friday and Saturday nights coming home pretty late.
Truthfully, walking around is the easiest (and often most satisfying) way of getting around.
There are also bike rentals on the block that you can pick up and drop off at many of the other bike stands around town.
There is no parking included with the studio, but you can valet your car with the hotel for $27 a night (yikes!) or park it across the street in a parking structure for almost half that (prices change, please inquire directly with the parking lot). I don't suggest you park the car in the street illegally ( you need an overnight permit), there's a very good chance your car will be towed ( it's big business in town).
You can also jump on free golf carts that roam around town. You tell the driver where you want to go and they work for tips.
