About The Owner
My husband and I live in the Caribbean islands but often visit Florida and our family there, we have been looking for a condo like this for over a year and finally found just the right one! Not too far from the airports of Miami International and Fort Lauderdale but in a safe and quiet stretch of the beach suitable for families as well as couples and singles.
The Owner purchased this Condo in 2013
Why The Owner chose North Beach
We chose this property because we wanted a unit with direct ocean views and southern exposure. We like the fact that we can easily walk to shops and restaurants and the bus route to Aventura Mall and South Beach is very close so if you decide not to rent a car it is still OK.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy the no hassle elements of this building, easy parking, can take the stairs rather than the lift if we prefer as the condo is just 2 stories from the pool. The fact that you can walk to all nearby amenities is a major plus. We enjoy the running and biking trails directly at our door step and the amazing views from every room!

Not what it seems, but at least rite in front of the beach.
The location is really the good thing about this listing. The owner is very nice and very attentive. That said, it does not look like the pictures on listing. The furniture is much older... It was not clean and and due to construction it was very messy in the commun areas... the people working in the building were also a bit rude. Its a pity because it could be an amazing listing...
It’s a very nice apartment, it has everything you need
I ‘ll rent it in the future
We stayed here for a 10 day vacation! View was amazing, enjoyed sitting on balcony with my coffee every morning and watching the sun come up!! Everything that we needed was there, kitchen appliances, towels, beach chairs etc!! Owner was easy to get ahold of and checking in was a breeze! We had AC issues for 2 of those days, but nothing the owner could take care of as it was the whole building! We arrived early and got in touch with owner who replied immediately and let us check in early! All and all it was a fun relaxing vacation!
Our vacation was just what we were hoping for. The condo was had everything to make our stay perfect. The view from the balcony was our favorite. I think the window in the main bathroom should be frosted and the water could drain better in when taking a shower, didn’t care for the water around my ankles. But problem was resolved , used the 2nd bedroom shower which was very nice. Contacted the owner on a very small issue and she was very quick to get back to me. Appreciated that. I would definitely recommend this property to others.
Great location on the beach in Surfside. The condo’s owner was essy to deal with and very accessible when we had a few minor issues.
Perfect location, Easy check in and check out, confortably furnished condo with great beach acces
This condo has everything you need to enjoy the beach. Easy check in and check out. Confortable practical parking without the need of obnoxious valet service.
The building is perfectly located but it needs better maintenance. The exterior looks a bit run down and the balcony of the unit has some cracked painting and chipped moldings. The inside of the unit with modern apliaces and big tv sets belong in a better managed property. The elevator was missing some buttons.
The acces door from the beach did not lock properly which is a safety concern (anybody can acces the building and the doorman is practically non existent)
Also the property description mentions washer and dryer but they are not inside the unit, they are next to the elevator and you need to use a pay card that you charge in the garage to use them. Not a major issue if you won't stay long.
The unit also has some cracked tiles next to the kitchen and the master bathroom window does not open properly and has peeled tinting that makes it look drab
This has the potential of being a perfect vacation spot if not for the fixable issues mentioned.
Would I returned?? I’m torn beacuse I loved the ease of check in and check out, the great view and uncrowded beach, the convenient parking, and nicely furnished unit but hated the unkept yard that could be a gem, the run down exterior that looks like you are staying at a third rate stablishment which contradicts the confort of the condo.
Price was according to acomodations and might use it again if only they do a thorough building maintenance.
All in all I would give the building a 7 and the owner would get a 10 for her excellent customer service with fast replies.
