Key West style Studio - 2 blocks from BEACH & OCEAN DRIVE Art Deco Strip

Bedrooms Studio
Space 270 sq. ft.
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Enjoy South Beach in one of the best locations in my clean & remodeled studio!

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!


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.

About Joe Lecomte

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.

Joe Lecomte purchased this studio in 2015

Why Joe Lecomte chose Miami Beach

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)

What makes this studio unique

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!)

Great Stay in the heart of South Beach.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this studio. It is just what you need for your stay at South Beach at a great price. Apt. Is simple, nothing fancy but has basics and very clean and comfortable. Owner very easy to work with and very responsive to emails. The best location!! Just a couple of blocks from Ocean drive but close to everything. Away from major traffic and noise. But the very best part was Michelle and Miguel who work the reception. They are the nicest and very helpful with information about local restaurants and places to go.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this studio. Only a short walk to the beach and close to a lot of bars, clubs, and restaurants.

The hotel staff Miguel, Elizabeth and Vanessa were all wonderful and very help! We enjoyed getting to know them during our stay!

The studio worked out well for us, as our intention was to only pretty much sleep there. We had a few hiccups regarding a couple things, but joe tried his best to accommodate us. The only recommendation we would suggest is that the floors could be a little cleaner prior to us getting there.

Overall, we had a great time and would come back again to this studio apartment.

The studio is exactly as descripted in the advice. It´s perfectly located and equipped with everything you might need.

Joe always asked us if everything was OK and if we needed something. As soon as we left he returned us the security deposit.

The hotel’s crew, despite the studio belongs to a particular owner, answered our questions and needs very politely. Miguel, one of them, is a great guy who recommended the best options in parking and indicated us some wonderful places to eat. He even offered us to weigh our luggage when we were leaving the hotel to catch our plane.

This was the first time that we rented an apartment by homeaway and it was a great experience! If we were to come back to Miami, we will stay at Joe’s studio without hesitating.

very nice!

  • 4 of 5

The room is very nice! Toaster,kettle, microwave, hairdryer and in the toilet there were shampoo,conditioner,body soap and lotion! Free access to the solarium where you can get free ice!

The position is perfect, close to ocean drive and the beach. There are many markets and restaurants close to the apartment.

We didn't have any problems with the reservation...the guy at the reception was very helpful and gave us the room in the early morning even though the check in was at 4 pm.

The host Joe was very helpful as well...he gave us many useful information and wanted to be sure during the holiday that everything was ok!

The only "problem" was that we couldn't open the windows but into the room there's air conditioning so maybe for somebody it's not a problem!

Go's very nice :)

very modern and lots of space

  • 4 of 5

I found the room to be bright and up to date. There appliances worked well and the bed was comfortable. I would have liked to see the the room cleaned by staff at least once and supplies like towels restocked. The owner did check in frequently by email and offer a small refund due to construction work in front of the hotel/condo.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Joe's condo in South Beach. Everything was very clean and the studio was as described. The location is only a few blocks away from the strip and the beach. Joe was a very nice host, who stayed in contact with us during our whole stay. We would definitely stay there again!!!

South Beach - 2 short blocks away
Car: not necessary

The Neighborhood:

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.

Getting Around:

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.
