About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This is a one-of-a kind ultra-modern, completely furnished, one bedroom with full length balcony on the 39th floor, looking south towards American Airlines Arena, Bayside and the beautiful downtown Miami skyline. When you step out to the balcony you have panoramic views of the intracoastal waterway and of South Beach.

I purchased the unit pre-construction in 2005 with the sole purpose of creating a beautifully appointed and decorated weekend getaway for my wife and me. I'm a contractor in Naples and when the building was completed in 2008, the fun began. I let my Miami modern creative juices flow: terrazzo floors, floating ceilings with rope lighting, all custom-made doors and frames, wall-mounted furniture, custom cabinetry in closets; you name it, no cost was spared.

Much has happened since then: we've had two kids and our romantic penthouse in the sky is rarely used. We've only let three of our closest friends stay in the unit; it's now time for you, our new friends, to enjoy my handiwork.

World-famous Lincoln Road and South Beach are just five minutes away.

Excellent location with a awesome owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo , the area, the cleanliness and proximity to the cruise terminals. It has everything and Brian takes everything into consideration including a fruit basket and a few things to get us started, like milk and coffee. We stayed at a lot of home aways, and this one ranks number one. Thanks Brian for a great condo and a relaxing week. Definitely recommend this place and will look forward to the next stay

Great space

  • 5 of 5

The space is lovely and very comfortable with many nice touches including excellent sheets, electric room darkening shades, filled candy dishes, onsite free parking, etc. Really exceeded our expectations. The location is also terrific for exploring Wywood where you'll find a great scene and fantastic restaurants. Thanks for the great stay Brian, we really enjoyed it.

Excelent apartment, very well maintained and great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at this apartment with wife and 2 kids (9 and 7 yrs). Everything within this apartment is great, starting from the beautiful view of Miami. It is indeed an ultra modern flat, very well maintained, furniture and decoration of great taste, high quality in towels, bed sheets, kitchenware etc. One bedroom very confortable, king size bed, blackout and modern big screen TV. Kids slept on a king size sofa bed, confortable as well, at a living room also equped with same big screen TV and modern home theater. Location of this condo is perfect, easy to come and go, 15 min drive to South Beach, 10 min. drive (or less) to financial downtown, Port of Miami etc. Parking on the 6th floor of the building at a private spot. Walking distance to a Publix, and in front of a Marina, playground, tennis courts etc. Brian is the owner and welcomed us to “check in”. Everything was perfectly clean and he was so kind to leave us bottled water, as well as some fresh fruits. Really enjoyed the apartment, its appearance and maintenance, as well as the great hospitality. Surely recommend and will come again next time we are in Miami.

A perfect home away from home experience - stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Renting with Brian at the Opera Tower was the best decision we could have possibly made for our second week in Miami. While the pictures are great, they don't fully convey how wonderful this apartment is. From the moment you walk in, the sense of quality, comfort and detail is second to none. What hit me the most though was how light everything is - huge windows and balcony doors letting in sun light, giving a lovely sense of well being. The apartment gets the sun all day so while it can be rather hot the balcony is the perfect place to top up the tan or just chill looking out into downtown.

Speaking of which, the balcony is truly stunning! Huge - giving a wonderful 180 degree panorama of Downtown from the bay all to the way to the airport on the far right - in fact if you like plane watching you'll love seeing planes flying there all through the day - including right above the Opera Tower. You can also peak over to the left to see South Beach in the distance.

The balcony has all you could want with two comfy reclining chairs, two standard chairs and a little table - perfect for drinks / snacks or (if you're like me) as a laptop table for those social media / photo updates at the end of a day exploring.

The view can't be overstated - it's majestic. Watching sunset is amazing (with a lovely orange glow over towards the airport) as the lights of the sky scrapers come on.

The apartment itself is stunning. Custom designed by Brian himself it has a really homely feel while being impeccably clean with every amenity you could imagine having in your own home, including super fast reliable WiFi. Kitchen has a huge refrigerator (built in water filter and ice maker), dish washer, oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and a brilliant breakfast bar - the perfect laptop home ;)

Brian filled our fridge with bottles of mineral water and other supplies - lovely touch. Speaking of which the apartment comes with lots of extras like that - including fruit and sweets in bowls ;)

The bedroom features a very expensive and super comfy king sized bed along with an awesome electric blackout blind that removes all light. Fun to use :)

High spec TV's - living room has a 5.1 surround sound system if you want to bring any Blu-Ray's or DVD's with you.

Minutes from Metro Mover and Publix supermarket. Friendly local mini-mart seller in building.

It truly was a perfect experience - the balcony moments each night sublime and that feeling of everything being provided, bliss!

The Opera Tower with 50+ floors is in an ideal location for visits to downtown Miami, Brickel Key.

  • 5 of 5

Brian King’s Apartment on the 39th floor offers a spectacular view over Miami (very impressive by night). Brian has his Apartment very tastefully furnished and selected top quality, comfortable seating, leather sofa and Kingsize bed. The kitchen is fully equipped and Publix (high end Super Market) is virtually next door. The Opera Tower’s gym and outdoor swimming pool on the 10th floor offers amble opportunity for daily workouts. South Beach is a short distance away and can be reached conveniently via “Venetian Way”. Last but NOT least Brian King is most helpful to make a stay very pleasant and is extremely reliable. The in-house parking spot of the owner is another big plus of this rental opportunity. My wife and I (from Boston, MA) will definitely happily return to this unique Apartment and location. Our only regret, our vacation was limited to 4 weeks for private reasons.
