The Real South Beach
My family of 4 (15 and 12 year old kids) stayed here in early April and had an absolute blast. The place was the perfect size for our crew and the location could not be beat. We loved the feeling of being in the heart of South Beach but in a more residential way. The place itself was a perfect size for us. Both Lucinda and Helena were incredible - from locking in the reservation with Lucinda to the personal touch of Helena being local and helping out with all of the accommodations. Lastly, the view from the place and the restaurant Jalapeño's were awesome.
Bottomline is if you want to stay in SB with the feeling like you are more of a local, this is a great place for you.
Thank you for the review. We hope to see you again.
Excellent on may levels
Fantastic place in a great location on South Beach. Extremely hospitable and attentive to any changes or needs that arose. The apartment is terrific- clean and comfortable Great job on the remodel! Can't wait to come back.
Wow!! What a great apartment! Everything was clean and comfortable. It was great to have the 3 bedrooms aso everyone in out group had privacy.
Helena and Lucinda were very helpful and worked hard to make our vacation a great success. You cant beat the location
I already booked another stay in July!!
Dust with a view.
Wonderful location, super close to the beach and everything else that we needed. The apartment, however, was a different story. Clearly neglected, the floors were grimy, the fridge was stinky, the washer worked but the dryer didn’t, the club next door is LOUD until late, and 2 of the 3 bedrooms were exceptionally tiny. There was hair all over the bathroom floors and mold in the shower caulk. The sheets were also quite filthy, even though the owner insisted that they are always changed between guests, I’m not so sure that’s the case. Our biggest issue was the DUST; it clung to the walls, the vents, and the fans. There was SO much of it that two of our guests had to spend the remainder of their stay in a hotel due to allergies. The owner offered to come in and have it cleaned, but throwing the dust airborne would have made it even worse than it already was. She was kind enough to offer some money back for the inconvenience, but the offer (one third of the cleaning fee) was a slap in the face with what we paid to stay there. Would not stay there again.
These young women complained about the cleaning shortly after check in- I offered to send the cleaning crew and have the apartment REcleaned to their satisfaction.
They refused and insisted on getting half their money back. I told them I could reclean the apartment or if they wanted they could leave and I would return ALL their money.
They wanted to stay but kept insisting on half their money back.
Unfortunately it appears they were looking for some way to get money back- even if it was undeserved :(
Great location, reasonable price
Pictures shown accurately reflect the condo. It's in a great location with the beach and restaurants just steps away. The building itself is dated but the unit itself has been updated. If you are looking for fancy or flashy, this unit's probably not for you. We weren't at the condo much and when we were having three bedrooms and an in-unit washer/dryer made everything much easier. Our family of 4 had plenty of room.
Thank you for staying with us. If I can assist you in the future, please let me know
Great location, best beach!
My family - husband and 2 teenage boys - stayed here for 5 days over the 4th of July. We really needed the 3 bedrooms and extra space, so it was great. Shower pressure was nice and beds were comfortable. Boys enjoyed the TVs in their rooms, for them that was part of the vacation. We also enjoyed being able to watch the show that is Ocean Drive right outside our front window. The location was also great because of its proximity to the beach - we didn't have to pack for a whole day, we could just walk back in 5 minutes.
The downsides are that there is very little in the kitchen in terms of pots/pans/bowls. One very large pan to cook 1 egg was not terribly helpful (I bought a smaller one and left it there, not sure how long it will last). We basically ate breakfast in and ate one really big meal at a restaurant later on in the day, supplementing with snacks. So having a functional kitchen was important. Also, while the apartment smelled fine, the hallway always smelled terrible - I would hold my breath until I got to the steps/elevator. Lastly, be aware that a popular outdoor restaurant is housed right outside the building and you will hear the music. We didn't really mind, by the time we went to bed we were too tired to care. They do offer Barbizon tourists a discount.
Finally, I have to mention how helpful Helina was in letting us in earlier than the usual set time and letting us stay later as well. She is very accessible via text. Other than my three comments above, we had no complaints and had a great time.
Thank you for staying with us. If you come back to South Beach We'd love to have you stay with us again.
