About Steve

Thank you for stopping by and visiting our house, My family and I have always loved coming to South Beach so I decided why not build a place we could call home. In 2008 The Claris Townhouses were finished. We wanted it to feel warm and inviting

just like back home and we feel that we accomplished that. We want you to have that same feeling when you come and visit with us. I have been in the vacation rental business now for over 10 years and have really enjoyed getting to know a lot of our guests. We have many families and groups that come back every year. I look forward to continuing to provide a great vacation home for our guests for many years to come. We will make sure you have a wonderful stay while with us in South Beach!

Sincerely,

Keith

Steve purchased this townhome in 2008

My Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

I love this mini mansion ( is what I call it) so much that I've been twice....The first time was with a family of boys...But this time it was an all girls trip.....Me and my friends stayed here for 5 days I wish longer..We had the time of our lives 2nd time is a charm....As like before..... We pulled up..My buddy Steve was there waiting and he always stays near just in case we needed anything...We never really need to bother him though....We parked in the garage which has everthing from beach chairs to coolers ,strollers, umbrellas..Washer and dryer....We used the kitchen everyday....It had everything we needed.....We take a visit to the grocery store and Rack up on groceries since we have a full kitchen....Breakfast, lunch and dinner anytime.....The first level has a balcony just in case you just want to chill on the first level because this place is huge......Second level has two bedrooms sleeps two people in each room and a bathroom....The third level is its own private level bedroom with a bathroom and a small bay window (balcony)........very private........And my favorite place to be is the amazing roof top which is why Iove I this place so much.....There is not enough words to explain....Private jacuzzi, chairs to relax, a day bed where I once fell asleep overnight during my first visit.(That's how comfy it is)....There is a gas grill that we definitely put to use more than once.... this place is over the top amazing...I can't wait to get back for my third trip around....I refuse to look or stay anywhere else...And I am very hard to please.....It's literally 2 blocks from the beach (Nikki beach) and two blocks the opposite to the Miami Beach marina.....It was also 8 of us we had air bed that slept 2 as well.......Don't even bother looking anywhere else...You've already found your spot....Thanks to the Owner Keith I had amazing Birthday..... Can't wait to get back...🤗.....I always wish I can stay longer.

Property needs some attention

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at this property 10 years ago and then stayed at the property next door last year. Sofi is the best location in South Beach, a quiet neighborhood but still within walking distance to everything. The beach is only 3 blocks from the house and much quieter at that end of the beach. There are plenty of great eats within a couple of blocks. For vegetarians/vegans...you must try Pura Vida, DIRT and Planta. We were a bit disappointed with the house this time because nothing had been updated in the 10 years since we stayed in this particular unit. Same furniture, bedding, etc. The ceiling in the master bathroom was covered with a piece of plywood. It was obvious that there was a major leak at some point which was not fixed and the bathroom smelled like mildew. Lots of minor issues such as the toilet running, toilet paper fixture fell off the wall, bed shedding in the second bedroom, doors won't shut completely, microwave is broken but there is a second one provided on the counter, there is not one single glass in the house - all of the glassware is plastic. The hot tub was hot for the first couple of days and then it seemed to have a leak because it was half full by mid week and cold for our last two days. Overall the house is in need of attention. Steve the property manager was great though, he fixed the internet and one of the broken tv's immediately when we called. He also allowed us to check in early on our arrival day which was so helpful. I gave the house two stars but we would likely stay again just for the location and neighborhood.

Not What Was Expected!!

  • 2 of 5

6 of us stayed here having booked 7 months ahead based on the pictures, video testimonial and previous renter reviews, should you stay here? Possibly! However, before you do you need to check with the owner that; the home will be cleaned before you arrive, that the bed linens are clean, you should specifically ask that the huge hole in the ceiling of the top floor bathroom has been repaired and that the bathroom redecorating has been completed. You should then check that the drains on the roof terrace have been cleared and unblocked so that the standing water from heavy rain showers drains away so that you can use the roof terrace after the rain has stopped and the sun comes out again, you should ask if the roof terrace has been ‘scrubbed’ clean before you commit to the property, and that the barbecue has enough gas before you arrive and not after you arrive. The terrace is the primary reason you’d rent this unit, it is dirty, shabby and in need of a major refurbishment. The hot tub lid and it’s peeling paint, the awning that doesn’t work and is ripped with the supporting arms hanging off look particularly disappointing. As are the lights that don’t really work so you can’t really sit up there at night and the ‘rust’ dribbles that streak down the white painted walls from the two iron decorative wall hangings also make the terrace massively unappealing, the terrace is not storm damaged, it’s just poorly maintained. The night I tried to bbq on the terrace stood in 2 inches of standing rainwater in the dark was my particular favourite.

I will say that Steve -property manager- did his best to improve things as we pointed them out to him ( new gas bottle, clean bed linens and lightbulbs) .... but trying to pin the blame for the condition of the property on hurricane Irma which passed by South Beach four weeks before our arrival was not acceptable. We had been told right after Irma, that she had gone through without damaging the property and that they and Miami were fully open .... to then have un-repaired ‘hurricane damage’ fully visible on our arrival .... was/is very poor for a so called ‘superior’ property.

Location of the property is very good in a very safe and quiet neighbourhood with great restaurants, bars and shopping in easy walking distance, are all solid reasons to rent this property..... but before you do .... get their written guarantee and pictures!! That you are getting what you paid for ... because we didn’t!! BUYER BEWARE!!

Excellent location and layout

  • 4 of 5

My 2 other friends and I stayed here from March 2- March 6. We were very impressed by the space and location. The only issue we had was that the microwave not working, but that was not a big deal since we ate most of our meals out anyways. Steve was notified, so I would imagine it will be resolved for the next guest.

Steve was very nice and always responded immediately with any questions. We will definitely be back here the next time we are in Miami.
