Lets start with the positives: The location is great, you are right inbetween the huzzle and buzzle of South Beach on famous Collins Ave. Beach, restaurants and shopping of South Beach are on your doorstep. The parking lot in the garage is also a great plus. Communication with the landlord was friendly and easy and a late checkout was appreciated due to our late leaving planes.
But, the apartment itself is a run down place: Missing or broken fixtures and fittings everywhere. The beds and linens were of the poorest quality on earth you can think of. The furniture like sofas etc. are in poor condition. The aircon operates from the windowless middle bedroom and sounds like a jet during takeoff, making any sleep in this room impossible. The kitchen is equipped with way to little items such as glasses, which we had to buy to at least have a cold drink in there. The bathroom is just filthy. With its 3 bedrooms the apartment is advertised to host 6 persons - we as a group of 6 felt very much cramped in a way to little place with no room to move or even have a place to store your belongings properly.
Overall, right now this apartment is great for a group of teens using that place for a crash pad during a weekend of partying, but really nothing more. This place is in urgent need of an overall renovation and proper furniture and fittings / fixtures - if the owner will do that in future, it might be worth the price they were askig for due to its location, which really is outstanding.
Our 10 days (!!!) booking unfortunately turned out to become a nightmare.
Owner of apartment communicated effectively and promptly. My deposit was returned on day he agreeed.
Some friends and i recently stayed here for a friends get away weekend let me just say we had a blast! The location is about a block away from beach and a short walk or uber to the south beach nightlife also short walk to Lincoln road that has a lot of bars and restaurants. It is very well maintained and the owner was great at replying promptly to any issues we ran into during our stay will definitely be back.
