About the property

1 Bedroom/1 Bathroom Poolside Condo

My home is a refined, luxury large one bedroom, one bath condo overlooking the pool in a modern award-wining boutique condo building minutes from everything in South Beach! It's the perfect Pied-a-Terre for a sunny Miami Holiday!

Only minutes from the airport, guests arrive to a stunning restored Art Deco 2-story building with only 26 units all surrounding the pool. It is a stylish oasis. Lounge by the pool, take a dip or enjoy the upper level dining area. They are all at your disposal.

Inside you will find a large living room with teak floors, contemporary furniture, cable TV, high speed WiFi, access to AppleTV in both rooms, and a Bowers & Wilkins iPod docking stereo. At the wet bar, chill some wine in the wine fridge or mix a few cocktails and relax! In addition, the sofa bed in the living room is a tempurpedic-style KING size sofa that very comfortably sleeps 2 additional adults.

The bedroom is luxuriously large with a KING size bed and memory foam mattress, cable TV and full-length mirror. Plenty of closet space, down-filled duvet and designer linens. Lots of natural light streams in, but can easily be cut with the full black-out blinds.

The spectacular chef's kitchen offers state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances with a 4-burner high tech gas range and grill, built-in double drawer dishwasher, full-size fridge, microwave and Carrera marble countertops. It's fully stocked and ready to be enjoyed!

The large bathroom offers a decadent large glass shower with rain showerhead and lots of plush towels!

You'll also find an in-suite stackable washer/dryer.

The Fontana is a quiet, yet friendly building. Everyone is welcome. It's LGBT friendly and perfect for international travelers! Parking is included!

You will love it here. I do!

About Stavros

New York City (by way of Toronto), family of 3, creative professional - and we LOVE Miami!

Stavros purchased this condo in 2013

Why Stavros chose West Avenue

I've always loved Miami, and felt the time was right to have a home to call my own in this fabulous sunny paradise!

What makes this condo unique

I LOVE the fact that it was a restoration not just a renovation of the entire 1960's era building. Very unique, superb finishes, attention to detail and a very well-maintained building AND landscaping. The heated pool and lounge area is so chic and really feel like an extension of our condo.

Excellent - just as promised

  • 5 of 5

We would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it to someone else. We are two 70 year olds and this was our first visit to South Beach. The accomodation could not have been better and we had a great time. The location was perfect for us - close enough to everything yet no loud music or crowds late into the night. We spent our days at the beach or exploring the art deco hotels. We walked to open air restaurants every night for the three weeks we were there. Highly recommended - thanks Stavros for the use of your wonderful condo.

Beautiful Apartment, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was PERFECT! It was exactly as described and very comfortable. The packet provided at reservation had all the information we needed to make our stay at the apartment great. The building is beautifully designed and in a perfect location.

Stavros was an amazing host and checked-in with me upon arrival and throughout the stay to make sure everything was good.

I will definitely stay at this property, if it's available, on my next trip to South Beach! And have already recommended it to a few friends of mine.

Awesome apartment with fantastic amenities

  • 5 of 5


We enjoyed a great stay in this apartment. It is in a great location, very near Lincoln Mall, as well as grocery shops. It is right around the corner from the free Miami trolley, making getting around South Beach a breeze. The apartment is beautifully furnished, with an extremely comfortable king bed in the bedroom and a comfortable king sofa bed in the living room. The kitchen is well stocked with all the basics including basic groceries like coffee filters, ziplock bags, olive oil, salt and pepper etc... The pool is right outside the door and is always quiet. There is a nice outdoor patio too perfect for a morning or afternoon coffee. Despite its location, on a busy corner, the apartment is extremely quiet! We will visit South Beach every year and this place is for sure on our list to return too! Stavros was also very responsive! All in all an amazing stay !

Car: not necessary

My home is a refined, luxury EXTRA LARGE one bedroom, one bath condo overlooking the pool in a modern award-wining boutique condo building minutes from everything in South Beach! It's the perfect Pied-a-Terre for a sunny Miami Holiday!

You don't need a car to stay, you can walk everywhere. But if you rent one, there is a parking spot waiting for you. Also, Lincoln road is just 1 block away. Stroll along this world famous destination and enjoy the shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and galleries that lead directly to the beach! The stunning turquoise water and white sandy beach is only a 15-minute walk. Ocean Drive, Espanola Way, the convention centre, theaters, Collins Avenue shopping district and nightclubs are all within walking distance, yet still in a queit and peaceful neighbourhood!

You will love it here. I do!
