Would have been a nice stay, BUT...

  • 1 of 5

The apartment is nicely decorated and the location is excellent--just steps from the beach, shopping and restaurants. The unit was clean and met our needs, though the futon mattress and shower curtain had seen better days, and the dishes in the cupboard still had food stuck to them. Having chosen this property for the pool, we were disappointed that it was too cold for our child to swim in on the 75+ degree days we were there. Communication with the owner was prompt and courteous... that is, until after our stay. At that time we were informed that our damage deposit would not be refunded because of a crack in the mirror door of the wardrobe. My husband and I both noticed the crack as soon as we arrived, but it did not cross our minds to report it since the closet still functioned and the overall condition of the unit was not so pristine that this seemed out of place. Unfortunately we were blamed for the damage and our deposit kept, despite our taking perfect care of the unit during our stay. I attempted to reach out to the owner multiple times, but all of my emails went unanswered. I cannot recommend renting from Cecilia. Since she does not live in Miami, you are at the mercy of whoever is turning over the unit to discover and accurately report when something is broken. We are honest to a fault and would have been glad to pay for the damage had we caused it. What I found even more upsetting than losing the money was the total lack of response from the owner, who apparently couldn't care less about unfairly charging me.

Close to Beach, Restaurants, Miami Life and Shopping! Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our first stay at a VRBO and we were not disappointed. Communication from owner was quick and thorough. Location was incredible, hard to beat on South Beach, South of Fifth! Quieter than the North side of the strip, and the back of the building is literally on the sand right outside Third Street Beach. Gorgeous view of the crystal blue waters. Restaurant options nearby are limitless, but I recommend walking to My Ceviche for fish tacos or to Puerto Sagua for cuban coffee con leche. Owners had beach chairs, towels and umbrella which was incredibly helpful. We didn't rent a car because we had family to drive us to from airport, but you can easily use Uber or other free/tip only forms of taxi or transportation if you prefer not to mess with expensive Miami parking. We will plan to come back, definitely! Only complaint is the apartment, while very clean, felt a bit tired and well used. But, still comfortably homey and served our needs and budget very well considering we could use the fridge for leftover meals or make a few breakfasts to save cash.

We had an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to say in South Beach, look no further. It is our first time using this type of service so we were naturally nervous about the whole thing but the owner and manager made us feel at home the entire time we were there.

The place was spotless, roomy, with wifi and cable tv and excellent air conditioning. It had everything we needed to enjoy our first visit to Miami. It is close to everything, including grocery shopping so you can save a bit of money by buying a few groceries. It also had a full stove, dishes, full dining room, a fold out couch in the living name it...It had everything and it beat staying at a hotel.

Here is the best part. The building complex has a well kept swimming pool AND the beach is a mere 3 minute walk. We couldn't believe how close the beach was! Whether you are looking to relax on the beach or hit the popular spots in South Beach, this is the place to be. We were very happy with our stay here and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Perfect spot !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a couple of weeks and loved it.

The location is really ideal if you are looking for a vacation rental close to everything.

The apt itself is well furnished.

The host was nice and helpful.

We would stay there in the future!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We were thrilled with the location and the access to the beach. Paolo had someone meet us at the apartment at a convenient time for us to pay the cash and get the key. The apartment is a typical older Miami apartment but clean. Spacious enough for 4 to sleep with the futon and nice sized bedroom and dining/living area. Most amenities we needed were there. No hair dryer (as listed on the ad) but all else was there. We were sad to find the hot tub under construction making it not usable and the adjacent apartments under construction making for some loud noises and dust during our stay. Paolo was apologetic about the unforeseen construction and waived the cleaning fee due to the unexpected inconvenience. The pool was great and usable. The TV has a USB drive in the bedroom so we hoped to be able to plug in some movie files we brought but we were never able to figure that out due to a missing remote. The wifi worked excellently. We were able to rent a scooter and park it around the neighborhood for easy transportation. Overall I would stay there again after the construction stops. You cannot beat walking only a 100 feet to the beach and they even had chairs and a beach umbrella which we took full use of!

Nette kleine Wohnung an unschlagbarer Lage zu einem annehmbaren Preis

  • 3 of 5

Prompter, netter Kontakt mit Cecilia. Wohnung entspricht den Fotos und liegt ideal nah am tollen Strand und unweit der Attraktionen am Ocean Drive.

Der Hauseingang ist ok, der Flur zur Wohnung riecht ziemlich muffig, die Wohnung selbst ist hell und sauber, aber ziemlich ringhörig und das Bad mit WC sehr klein. Uns hat die Sicht (nur auf Parkplätze) aus den Fenstern gefehlt. Wen das aber nicht stört und wer davon ausgeht, sowieso nur zum Schlafen in der Wohnung zu sein, ist dort gut aufgehoben.

Die Anfahrt vom Flughafen mit dem kostengünstigen Airport-Shuttle ist zu empfehlen, die Haltestelle liegt nahe der Wohnung. Ansonsten ist es mit dem öffentlichen Verkehr eher schwierig wenn man sich nicht auskennt und deshalb sind Taxis vorzuziehen. Ein Supermarkt für Lebensmittel findet sich auch in der Nähe.
