Short getaway to Miami

  • 5 of 5

We went to Miami for an extended weekend for a bachelorette party and part of our stay we stayed at Leah's place. It had everything we needed, including beach chairs and supplies and anything you might need around the apartment. She was very easy to get in touch with, especially with us getting in late to Miami from our flight. She was helpful with giving us neat places to check out around the city and very specifics about the apartment, including keeping in touch via texting. Thank you for making our first time to Miami very relaxing! :)

Superb location

  • 4 of 5

This compact yet comfortable apartment is superbly located for easy walking access to all the attractions of South Beach. Leah is a very considerate host and was very understanding when our travel plans were completely disrupted by delays at Fort Lauderdale airport.

Great central location to good food and public transportation.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is in a great location. Slightly removed from the busy street but near excellent restaurants and walkable distance to the beach. Leah was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Parking was limited to a parking garage a few blocks away. It would be nice if a parking pass was made available for guests.

The best thing about this unit is its location and proximity to everything that is South Beach! You do not need a car for South Beach. Bikes are much more more fun and easily available all over town or rent a scooter at Beach Scooter on 13th and Washington.

Experience the best of South Beach with the South Beach Local bus. Ride for only 25¢ per trip. Buses run every 13 to 30 minutes daily, stopping at popular destinations throughout South Beach. All air-conditioned buses are bike and wheelchair accessible for your convenience. So climb aboard and leave the walking for a leisurely stroll down Lincoln Road or Española Way or take the South Beach Local down to South Pointe Park for a view of Fisher Island and cruise ships sailing out of the Port of Miami. Hop on again and ride in comfort to any of your favorite places on Washington Avenue. The South Beach Local bus, makes getting around SoBe a breeze. Now there is even a free Alton/ West loop bus too in case you want to hang out in the residential area of South Beach.
