This apartment had everything we could have needed and was very comfortable. Being in the heart of South Beach we could walk everywhere we needed to. It is very comfortable and our 2 week stay was greatly enjoyed. The beach is just on the other side of the road, and having use of beach chairs and towels was a blessing. Although the front of the building is a restaurant on Ocean Drive, this apartment is at the back and very quiet.

I didn't think I would use the washing machine and tumble drier on this trip, but decided to do a small wash of some of the clothes we wanted to wear again. I was pleasantly surprised not only how easy it was to operate them, but also how quiet they were. I ended up doing more washing than planned so we could re-wear our favourite clothes. I won't explain how comfortable the bed was or any other positive points about the apartment as they are well covered in other reviews.

We found it very easy to get about without a car, doing a lot of walking around the whole of south beach, taking taxi's to a couple of the further out attractions, using the local bus and booking on some organised tours which picked us up from the front of the building.

Hints and tips - I would recommend trying Washington Avenue for lots of restaurants and small supermarkets. It runs parallel to Ocean Drive, 2 blocks back. The restaurants on the intersection of Washington and Espanola way are all good (we ate at all 3 of them).

If you walk down 11th Street to Alton Road (about 15 - 20 minute walk) there is a large Wholefoods Market, which is an organic supermarket selling, amongst many other things, LOTS of fresh fruit, veg, and some pre-prepared meals (Hot, cold, salad etc ) that you can self serve into boxes to be weighed. You can then bring them back, or eat at the tables outside where cutlery and condiments are provided. I believe that the biggest supermarket is Publix if you want to do more serious grocery shopping - but probably take a taxi or the bus. We didn't need to go there though.

We arranged 3 tours through a tour company based in a(nother) lovely art deco building, on Collins near the turn off to Lincoln Road. They were well organised and recommended. We took a day trip to the Bahamas, which we weren't expecting to do and was an added bonus. It's a very long day with set off at 5am, back near midnight, and (don't forget your passport) a long queue to get back through customs on the way back. It was a great experience though, on the ferry across and then swimming with manta rays off a beach with the most beautiful turquoise sea and softest sand. It's a long way to go for what was about a 5 - 6 hour stay, but if you haven't been before and you want to try it then it might be worth it. We also did a trip down to Key West - another long coach ride, but a very different experience there to Miami and great views on the way down (it was dark on the way back, but a spectacular electrical storm in the distance kept us entertained).

Liked best: Location and comfort of bed
Liked least: Not really a gripe, but for us brits who like a cup of tea the kettle is one that goes on the hob and takes a long time to boil

Thank you for the review. The units in the building are individually owned. The appliances, furniture, linens and beach chairs have bee supplied by myself and are not found in other units. I take great pride in ensuring everything in the unit is comfortable, clean, stylish and in good working order. Hope to have you visit with us again. Debbie.
