Overview

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.

The condo is on the 2nd floor Ocean Side - with view of the ocean, palm trees and newly renovated pool - it is flooded with light with three windows that are dressed in sheer toile curtains and plantation blinds.

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 living area has comfy leather sofa and flat screen TV with cable, the perfect place to kick up your feet after a long day at the beach or strolling around South Beach.

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!

Very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a whole week here , March 8-15. The condo is lovely and has everything you need. Comfy bed, nice furnishings and great location.

The only negative (not the fault of the condo) was the fact that it was spring break and we had ridiculously noisy people in the condo above us. I think they were training elephants or something. South Beach is lovely, so much to do and see, but it gets too crazy with partying this time of year. Next year we'll head north a bit to the mid beach area. Condo was great though; highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Sorry for the noise upstairs and thanks for your patience and understanding. I heard Spring Break this year was madder than ever... Now if I could only get the owner upstairs to NOT rent to "Spring Breakers" like I don't ... we'd all be happy! Please come back again during a calmer period! I assure you - you will relax in peace!

Charming apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lisa's apartment was well supplied with most everything you need & nicely decorated. we had a minor problem & the handyman was there in 15 minutes. Our last day, Lisa allowed us to leave our bags later than checkout due to our late flight. Don't be put off by the building or long hallway. The location at the end of the hallway made it quieter & convenient to access the pool & beach, which the apartment had a nice view of. I was unclear if shampoo was provided as we had a half used tube. Just be sure you have your own.The condo is small but more than adequate. this was my first vrbo experience & it was a good one. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend stay at my apartment on your way back from Cuba. I was actually in the apartment just before your arrival and was sure we set out a new full set of mini bathroom products as we always do - So sorry if the shampoo seemed half empty, I assure you we always put a new full set of products in the unit before each guests visit. We pride ourselves on 99.9%, 5 star reviews and I take it personally when a guest has a less than excellent 5 star experience. I assure you, we will continue to strive for excellence. I realize people have many choices in Miami Beach and we work to please and serve our guests to insure that their hard earned money is appreciated and that their stay is great one. Safe Travels, Lisa

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
