About Elsy

I am a retired teacher who loves the beach. I enjoy sharing my condo with people who enjoy nature and seek a paradise island to relax and enjoy precious moments at the beach.

Elsy purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Elsy chose Miami-Dade County

It was my dream to retire near the beach. I thank God for helping me make my dream come true. I love to meet people who enjoy nature as much as I do and to provide a nice unforgetable vacation for them.

What makes this apartment unique

Steps from the beach, a cute balcony that overlooks the swimming pool and palm trees. It is cute, cozy, and I love it!!! The supermarket and many restaurants are at walking distance. It is ideal to ride a bike, swim, walk, run, and just relax in the balcony or at the pool deck. The private beach has confortable chairs to relax. You will fall in love with this little paradise.!!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We are a mid 40s couple, had a wonderful time at Key Biscayne staying at Elsy's condo from April 25 till May 02. The condo is perfect for a couple and it had all we needed: nice kitchen, stable WiFi, laundry room on the first floor of the building. Very easy and convenient access to the private beach is what we really liked, no need to cross the busy Crandon Blvd. It takes 2 minutes to walk from the condo building to the Beach Park, then use the key to enter the Park and 3 minutes later we were at the beach. The Beach Park is very nice too, it has toilets and showers to wash off the sand on the way back. It was a very good week and we hope to be back some day.

This clean and well-equipped apartment blocks from the beach, blocks from shopping (grocery, drug store, gift shops) and restaurants, near the State Park, could not have been more enjoyable. Laundry facility on site, outdoor swimming pool, quiet street and building. Owner is delightful to work with, helpful, and accommodating. We would love to visit KB again, and this spot is absolutely perfect.

Nice apartment and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Elsys apt in one week in February 2015. We were two adults, our 3 year old son and our 5 months old baby. The appartment was very nicely located with acces to a private beautiful beach, close to the supermarket and a park with a playground. Elsy was a very good host and answered all our questions before arrival. She provided an inflatable matress for our son and it worked well in the seperate bedroom. We were missing a sharp cooking knife and some wine glases in the apt, but the day after we told Elsy this, her son showed up with both - and also with a shovel for our son. The pool was not heated and it was a little too cold, especially for our son. So don't count on swimming there in february! All in all - a good value apt.

Owner's Response: I am glad you are satisfied. I made an exception with you because I rent for two people maximum. This year it was exceptionally cold in USA and we felt a little of that cold in the south, but usually you can swim all winter long in the swimming pool as well as in the beach. Last year I enjoyed swimming all winter long and the water was perfect to swim. I am glad you escaped the cold from Dinamarc for a few days and hope you keep your nice vacation in your memories forever. I enjoyed sharing my apt with you.

Perfect for two/ Pefecto para dos

  • 5 of 5

Affordable is hard to find in Key Biscayne. However this gem sits in the heart of it all. Private beach within minutes walk or healthy morning walks to Baggs S.P. or North beach will help the stress just melt away. Comfortable living space with complete kitchen to satisfy your getaway. If you wish action it is ten minutes to sailing at Hobie Beach or mountain bike on Virginia Key. Little Havana, and Cocoanut Grove only twenty. But I suspect once one settles on the porch over looking the pool one is going to kick back and say " we were lucky to find this place".

Owner's Response: That is exactly what I felt when I bought it over a year ago. I am so glad I can share it with people like you who appreciate it and enjoy it as much as you did. I bought a new dinning room for you to enjoy it next time. Hope you come back soon, Elsy.

Clean, simple, comfortable condo....steps to private beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to escape winter and rented Elsy's condo for one week. She answered all questions and made it easy for us even leaving her grocery card so we could get the weekly sale discounts. The condo itself is typical, nothing overly luxurious...but a good value and clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The best part for us was access to the private beach just around the corner, and Key Biscayne is a lovely upscale island so location, location, location. We could walk 2 blocks to the grocery store and CVS. Or, we only had to drive over the causeway, and we were in the city of Miami exploring the neighborhoods there...then back to our quiet tropical retreat. There's a balcony but we preferred to sit at the pool/patio area with the lovely landscaping. It was quiet and well cared for property. I would go back to Elsy's condo if I wanted to visit Key Biscayne again. She makes it an easy rental experience.

It is a beautiful place to relax in a quiet and peaceful environment. It is really a little paradise. I just love it!!!
