About the property

Enter your sparkling white dream-like vacation hide-a-way

This Ocean Front/Ocean view gem is located on Ocean Drive in South Beach in the most desirable South of Fifth neighborhood. This newly renovated and designer decorated 450sq ft. one-bedroom, is the perfect mix of luxury comfort and beach cottage charm.

Furnished with top of the line appliances and fixtures, a complete kitchen, chic beach cottage décor, and 100% cotton towels and linens you will enjoy a luxury not normally seen in comparable vacation rentals in the area.

With elevator, 24 hr. laundry on each floor, beach side pool and direct beach access there is no better location than this charming oceanfront pied-a-terre.

The condo sleeps up to 4 people maximum, 2 in bedroom (queen) and 1 adult or 2 smaller children on a smaller-than-double-bed size, pull out sofa in the living room. There is also a single size aero mattress when needed. There is a completely stocked kitchen, dining table for 4, living area with flat screen, ceiling fan and a separate bedroom with queen size tempurpedic mattress, flat screen and ceiling fan, a bathroom state of the art shower and plenty of closets to organize your clothes and store your luggage.

The fully loaded newly renovated kitchen has full size appliances, electric stove, microwave/convection and cabinets stocked with glassware and dinnerware should you want to eat in or entertain.

The custom designed grey tile and marble bathroom has a top of the line rain shower and shower seat to sit and wash off the sand between your toes. There is an iron, hairdryer and vintage art deco light to help you get ready for the Miami nightlife!

The bedroom has queen size, top-of-the-line Tempurpedic mattress which is layered with fine, white, 100%, cotton linens, cozy duvets and an assortment of pillows to suit your preference. There are extra linens and bedding for the full size sofa bed in the living area. A 2nd TV is on the wall at the foot of your bed.

If you have to work and stay connected there is cable and high-speed Wi-Fi throughout.

Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach towels are provided.

Enjoy the palm trees and ocean views and the ever-changing colors of the sunrise right out your windows. – Then step out and walk into the center of all the South Beach action. Lincoln Road, Bars, restaurants, clubs, lounges, and shopping as well as supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, bike rentals and car rentals are all in walking distance.

Located in one of the original Ocean Drive Art Deco Hotels, (Somerset Hotel; circa 1939) Ocean Walk Condominium is currently being restored to its’ original glory. There is renovation work being planned for the front southwest corner (street side) of the building for later this year (sept-dec 2016) - which should not effect my apartment since my apt is on the south east corner (ocean side).

The beach is easily accessible just out our back pool entrance.

Once inside my apartment- you will be lost in tranquility!

Elegant, perfect Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! The check in/out process was easy and clearly outlined. This place had everything necessary for a great stay. The location couldn't be better. In the heart of it all South Beach has to offer. With beach access that could not have been more perfect. I would recommend this lovely, clean, amazing place to anyone!

Great apartment; excellent location

Last minute rental. Stayed here for 4 nights. Owner was very accommodating with my reservation request. Apartment is charming, clean and nicely appointed -- and in quiet location near the South Beach "strip." Highly recommend.

Everything we expected and MORE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations from having seen the posted photographs, and we were not disappointed! We found the arrival very easy, with really clear and accurate instructions on how to get into the apartment. Manager Jorge had left a lovely welcome note and kindly popped in to greet us within hours of our arrival which was a lovely touch. The apartment was bigger than the photos suggested with an incredible amount of storage space in and around the wardrobe. The apartment on arrival was really clean and we could tell it had been well cared for. The public areas were also really well appointed and we really appreciated the laundry room that was just down the corridor (just remember to collect your quarters). We found the kitchen very easy to negotiate and very happily catered for ourselves most nights. The view from the apartment looks out across the swimming pool and beach which was beautiful at all times of day and night. There was back access to the pool and beach via a stairwell directly next to the apartment which was really convenient and meant it was only a 30 second walk to the beach. The outside area was really well kept and although we didn't spend much time in the pool area, it was nice to use the pool on days when the sea swimming conditions weren't optimum.

We had been a little apprehensive about the safety of the area, however our concerns were unfounded as it was a very family friendly area and only a couple of minutes walk from the heart of the action. We used Publix supermarket near the causeway which was a decent walk and was expensive (comparatively to the UK) but we used the Publix in Downtown Miami whenever we ventured by bus which was cheaper. The buses were easily accessible and information on the Miami-Dade transit website meant that we were able to travel around confidently without the need for a car. The bus drivers were also really helpful - one recommended that we purchase an 'EasyCard' which we topped up at the main bus stations. You can buy the card in many venues listed on the website. On our way back home we caught the 150 bus all the way to the airport for only $2.25.

One of our favourite things to do was walking up to South Pointe Park to the right of the apartment (as you face the sea), the best place for people watching or an evening walk.

Contact with Lisa (the owner) was extremely good from the minute we enquired about renting the apartment, right up to the time we left!

We THOROUGHLY recommend staying here.

Clean * Pretty * Quaint

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us and Our Honeymoon. It was Modern ,Clean and Cute. With a little kitchen we were able to make our breakfast and pack our picnic lunches. Grocery shopping was only a few blocks away. We were right on the strip ,and we loved to walk and check out the night life on Ocean Drive. Lots of restaurants nearby. I loved that the ocean was only steps away.

The pool was clean and refreshing.

I would highly recommend this place.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely apartment appointed beautifully in a great location. Walking distance from everything and on the quieter end of South Beach which makes for a good nights rest. Would stay here again for sure. Our only negatives were with the building as a whole. Not every host here takes the care that Lisa has and the halls smelled of pot. There are exterior security lights on the building that keep the Windows brighter than I like, but it wasn't overly intrusive. A definite win.

Owner's Response: Oh dear I'm sorry the lights from the building next door bothered you - it's best to keep that one living room blind closed at night to avoid the bright light shining in the living room. Regarding the smell in the hallway, it IS South Beach and there is really no way I can control who rents in the building and what people do in their apartment - I wish I could! - I'm sorry if that offended you. Thank you for your stay, Lisa
