Very well kept, clean, and just like a home away from home. Lucky we found it. I would recommend it to my friends.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay tremendously. The condo was equipped with everything we needed, and the location is very convenient. Ely, the owner of the property, could not have been any nicer, she was very accommodating.

Beautiful, comfortable and so well located

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be the perfect apartment for us, attractive, comfortable and walking distance to a lovely uncrowded beach and Bill Baggs State Park. You can see that Ellie has worked hard on the artwork, the furnishings and other decor to turn the apartment into a little gem. We loved both parks for birdwatching, saw dolphins from the beach and ended up accidentally swimming with a manatee one quiet windless day. It's about 20-30 minutes to excursions in Miami or Miami Beach, maybe an hour and a half to Key Largo, and the drive over Rickenbacker Causeway has got to be one of the most spectacular views in the area. Rusty Pelican is a short drive, on Virginia Key for the same spectacular views accompanied by tasty food and drinks (good Happy Hours).

Ellie is a very attentive, efficient owner, quick to respond to us for when we made the reservation (helping us through glitches too) and questions/concerns while we were there.

Walk to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here! The property was very clean, fresh and updated, with good air circulation and a bug-free balcony (screened-in). The second story unit was accessible by stairs as well as elevator, with laundry and pool available. It 's location was extremely convenient -- short walks to town, beautiful private beaches, and close private parking. When necessary, it was also easy to get around by car. There was lots to do nearby - much within walking distance, including: casual dining restaurants with delicious food offerings, large grocery store, library, excellent community center, information center, easy access to bikes ('LimeBike'), wonderful parks with lots of nature and history to be explored, good cell phone service, public tennis courts, paved biking/walking trails, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and beautiful neighborhoods with sidewalks for more and more walking pleasure! We also explored many areas outside of Key Biscayne, but were always happy to return to the lovely calm and sane, Key Biscayne. With respect to Irma, the community has very successfully cleaned up! It looks completely normal to the outsider. We are a couple in our late fifties and we took advantage of everything this property had to offer. Our host was very kind and attentive throughout our stay! We would love to return! (p.s. I was glad to have brought my own Nutribullet to make my daily smoothies.)
