Call Sweet Water Home For You Next Vacation Rental

Welcome Aboard!

The yacht is located at 5160 Collins Avenue directly across from 5151 Seacoast Condominiums Miami Beach, FL 33140. The slip has easy access to the newly renovated Beachview Park. Beachview Park is Miami beaches number one Public Park and has brand new bathrooms, showers, workout stations under palm trees, playground in the shade, and a life guard on duty. You can park at Beachview for only $1 an hour a maximum of $10 a day, and free over night. Unlike the resorts you are welcome to bring a cooler but no glass containers. Valet parking is available at 5151 Seacoast condominiums for $12 over night, which is a fantastic rate for Miami Beach. Fountainebleau parking is $40 a night. The other Miami Beach park Indian Creek is under renovation and does not have any facilities available at this time, but there is still a lifeguard on duty at this time.

Most resorts in Miami Beach welcome guests that are well behaved and spending money for food and beverage. No resort allows for you to bring in food and beverage to their pool facilities.

Adjacent to the slip is the Alexander Hotel which has a fun poolside bar and restaurant called Top of The Falls. Eden Roc has a restaurant and bar poolside that has good views of the beach called the Cabana. Fountainebleau has tighter security than most resorts and it is best to make a lunch reservation at La Cote prior to arrival. Fountainebleau is not family friendly and we recommend that you go to one of the other resorts if you have children with you.

When you arrive to the slips the yachts are located as follows:

• Slip # 2 is Sweetwater VRBO # 441375

• Slip #3 is Unplugged VRBO # 461461

• Slip #4 is Yacht Rock VRBO # 488214

Key lockers are adjacent to the door of each yacht and the combination which changes frequently will be texted to you by First Mate Alex.

The slips are located in a very nice residential area with multi-million dollar houses directly across the Indian Creek inlet and condominiums across the street. The slip at 5160 Collins Ave is close enough to the Fountainbleu and Nobu EdenRoc mega resorts yet away from the chaos of cabstands and 24 hour valet. Valet Parking at Seacoast Condo directly across the street is great for convenience and security and only $12.00 overnight (compared to resorts $40.00.) Or park at the Beachside parking lot for $1.00 per hour ($10 Maximum) and free overnight.

The Yacht cannot have more than six people on board and may not be used for an invitational party. Loud music, boisterous behavior, and parties are not acceptable late night on the outside decks of the yacht. You can party in the spacious salon all night long, but please remember you are in a residential area when you are on the outside decks. The condominium association security monitors the slips and has zero tolerance for unruly behavior.

Located at 5151 Seacoast Condominium is a fantastic Cuban convenience store that has wine, beer, sundries, and authentic Cuban Coffee & Sandwiches. The Cuban sandwich is one of the best sandwiches we have had in Miami and under $4. You will also want to try a cup of Cuban coffee to start your day. The store is open from 7am to 10pm daily and very well stocked for its size. You can find many things and save a trip to one of the big grocery stores. One half mile North on Collins Avenue is a Publix grocery store that has a full liquor store as well.

Chill out before a big night out in the spacious air-conditioned main salon, which features a sofa, easy chairs, dinning table, bar, kitchen, surround-sound with iPod doc, Wi-Fi, and a 47' flat screen TV.

After a big night out in South Beach come back to your private yacht with two private staterooms that each have Queen sized-beds, private bathrooms with showers, plenty of closet space, luxurious linens, & black-out curtains and flat screen TV's.

The ultimate in nightclubs, restaurants, bars, pool scenes are all walking distance from the yachts. Easy walk to Beachside Parks pristine beach with crystal clear water. Beach amenities include jet ski rental, umbrella & lounge chair rental for chilling out.

Our favorite way to get around Miami Beach is with the CITI bikes which can be checked out and taken one way to the hundreds of kiosks located around the beach. Beachview Park has a kiosk you can rent a bike and start your adventure. We suggest downloading UBER.com a FREE App for your transportation needs. Miami beach is only 2 miles long and you can get anywhere in a very short period of time.

Many of our guests are interested in taking a cruise with one of our Coast Guard approved and insured captains. Guests are not allowed to move a vessel without our captains. A half-day charter of Indian Creek and Biscayne Bay is $850. A full day charter that can include a visit to one of the sandbars that locals gather and party is $1350. Charters can have up to 6 guests, but no more. If you are interested in scheduling a charter please email date, time of departure, and half or full day. After receiving the email we will see if a captain is available to schedule your day on the water. Charter is inclusive of captains fee, fuel for idle speed cruising, and insurance.

Your local contact for boatel.us is First Mate Alex. Alex may be contacted at 786-316-3824. Alex’s day typically starts at sunrise and goes to bed early. Please do not call Alex after 9pm EST. Check In to the vessels is at 4pm daily and Check Out is at Noon. If you wish to be greeted at the yacht please txt Alex when you are leaving the airport or 30 minutes away from the yacht slip.

We look forward to having you onboard boatel.us

I want to start by saying that the boat is in a fantastic location.

The overall stay was just ok. When we arrived the guy that looks after the boats was fantastic. His name is Alex and he unloaded our bags took them on the boat for us un loaded our groceries and put them in the fridge. He really was fantastic.

The boat is a little older and it is not in the greatest of conditions. The toilet stopped working every 4 hours and we had to call Alex to come and fix it. That was a real pain. The boat had an old smell as well that we couldnt seem to get rid off.

We where supposed to have direct tv for the duration of the stay and we finally got the tv working the day before we left and we where there for 5 days.

If you are looking for a quick getaway and you want something fun relatively in-expensive, good location and you don't mind small living quarters and some toilet problems then you might enjoy this.

Overall it was a fun experience but I would not rent this pirticular boat again.

The Best! I was relaxed after 15 minutes on the boat. check in was a breeze, instructions given before hand on all details such as safe, keys, wifi and places to go were right on.Great having a full kitchen and Keurig coffee maker....I need my coffee. I was skeptical of marine bathroom but was pleasantly surprised, shower was hot and good water pressure. The 2 things I enjoyed the most was the view and the best sleep I have gotten in months. I would bring with you some basic needs such as drinking water, snacks and wine, because once you get on the boat you don't want to leave . I would recommend Boatel 100%, thank you for making our weekend getaway the best ever.

Well of the three 'yachts' rented by the owner this was the weakest. It sat a little low in the water so it was a little humid and dank. Good deck for cocktails but a planned cruise went bad with one of the engines not turning over. Its a romantic notion for a few days with a better boat. I just stayed too long. (not the boat pictured.)

Owner's Response: Jonathan
Thanks for your stay on SweetWater.I would agree staying three weeks in a row is a a little much but I certainly appreciate the business.
Your comment that it is "not the boat pictured" is incorrect.I did have a picture CLEARLY LABELED "view from the deck of SweetWater".
Many people want to see a picture from the deck of the boat which is what you are referring to.The view from the boat looks at other yachts in the marina (including my other yachts)and the beautiful Indian creek .
Thanks

Just Average Accomodations

  • 3 out of 5
First of all, the location is just as advertised...wonderful. It does come, however, with the road noise typical of Miami Beach right out of the cabin windows. Tough to sleep well.

Secondly, Rochelle was incredible to communicate with and very responsive to our needs.

Third, the boat is just ok. The living quarters are adequate but the bedrooms and bathrooms leave something to be desired. They are very small and the bathrooms are dated and felt dirty to us. The water pressure was very very weak but there was plenty of hot water.

As a boat owner I expected most of these things but thought the boat was more renovated that it turned out to be.

The outside areas were adequate.

I probably would not stay there again. Maybe their newer and cleaner boat.

Unplugged..Enough Said

  • 3 out of 5
What the girls and I thought would be a decadent week aboard a posh yacht turned out to be a harsh lesson in how NOT to do business. We landed in Miami with no issues, which is good because a boatload of issues awaited us aboard the appropriately named yacht “Unplugged,” as most of the appliances stopped working at some point during our “vacation.” Our first day was spent with (3) separate crews of contractors whom we had the displeasure of seeing every day until our departure 6 days later. Meanwhile, the Yacht owner and his wife mixed their Bloody Marys on their neighboring yacht and traveled to the docks on Collins Avenue. I guess that’s why it took the owner 3 days to come over and apologize for the inconveniences we had to endure and THAT was only after we sent a lengthy e-mail. We were finally offered (3) allowances and chose a full night’s refund, as this was the only option NOT dependent on wasting any more time on an unreliable water vessel. After 3 weeks of waiting, we finally received our 1 night’s refund. Now I understand that things can go wrong, especially on boats, as they are susceptible to Mother Nature and the Sea. Still, it was the indifference and cavalier attitude of the owner that was so infuriating. Such a shame because we were ready to book for our next summer’s vacation! Look for more reviews on Vrbo.com and Facebook.

Owner's Response: The problems on board the vessel were not due to the new appliances on board.We first brought appliance company to see why refrigerator was having an issue.The appliance company informed us it was a power issue.
I had a marine electrician come to the vessel and he determined it was not the boat but the DC current .The Miami Beach Marina is undergoing upgrades/renovations and the power source to the dock has a power issue of DC current not being adequate.
The contractor doing the renovations at the marina addressed the issue and finally restored the correct power to the dock and the refrigerator started working properly.
We thought the ice and ice chest we provided immediately ,the apology given at that time and full days credit was fair compensation .I am sorry about the electrical issues and was actually one of the reasons we decided to move to another marina.The improvements at Miami Beach marina and new high rise will be fabulous sometime in 2015 but being in the marina during construction has had it's issues.

40th Birthday Party

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed on Yacht Rock for a 40th birthday party for girls weekend and it was WONDERFUL! The yacht was beautifully furnished, and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Beds were super-comfortable; like being at home. The views were fantastic and the location was perfect! The owners were extremely accommodating and we would definitely do this again and in fact we are planning on booking our next party on Yacht Rock!
