Property is perfect!

First let me start off by saying this is not a paid advertisement! I have nothing to say but great things about our superhost Rachel and the property. First time using Air bnb and she put me at ease right away. She was hospitable, professional, and personal from the time we checked in to check out. She personally checked us in and then showed us to our condo. Very easy to talk with about the area and activities. Once in our condo she took us to the balcony and pointed out just how close we were to Publix, restaurants, parks, the marina and other walkable areas/places. She was always a text/call away if needed. The property is perfect for a couple or small family. Bed slept great!! Great lil kitchen area. Balcony was a go to for us. People watching in park or in bay. View was amazing, day or night! Missing that balcony as I speak... so much I could say about the visit. If you want a swanky, glitzy, all dolled up place go for it, spend all of your money. If you want something very nice with an amazing host that has more manners than the entire city of Miami, I’d check this place out. I’ll be going back.

the most amazing view of all Miami

Rachel and Mia have one of the BEST places to stay in Miami. We are super lucky to have stayed with them at 'Artsy on the Bay, 1248' @ The Grand Doubletree! My group and I stayed there for the Ultra Music Festival 2018. It was a 20 minute walk to Bayfront Park. You can also take the free monorail that takes you around the city as well. It’s the best way to see the city. We checked in around 10pm and was greeted by the friendly security staff at the front desk. They will answer any questions you have. They will then direct you to your room. You’ll be in awe with how beautiful the inside of the building looks. When we got to our room, the first thing we did was go onto the balcony. They have the most amazing view of all Miami. You can see most of the city. Just across the street there is the Publix grocery store. They have everything you need to cook in the apartment kitchen. My group and I saved a ton of money cooking our own food. We also bought paper plates and cups to avoid washing dishes while on vacation. Publix also has a liquor store as well if you are looking to pre-funk before your night out! All in all, we didn’t want to leave. If I ever come back to this AMAZING city I will definitely want to stay with Rachel and Mia again. They are a Superhost for a reason. They communicate well and are extremely accommodating. They will try to make sure that you have an unforgettable stay. I can’t thank them enough for giving us the opportunity to stay at their property.

Stayed at Rachel's & Mia's place for a 5 day getaway from the frigid northeast and the stay was absolutely wonderful. Mia was incredibly helpful and communicative with the check-in and answering any questions I had. The location is great, just north of downtown and a short Uber/cab-ride to south beach. There is a Metromover station 2 blocks away and Publix (with liquor store) about 1 block away. There is access to a large pool and hot-tub as well as shops and food in the hotel (including a Starbucks). I highly recommend this place.

Great place that was more than big enough to house the six of us. Had a gorgeous view overlooking part of the city and water. Property was very clean upon arrival with no issues whatsoever. We didn't need anything from Rachel during our stay, but if we did, I always felt that I would have no hesitation on asking and that she'd be more than willing to help! We attended Ultra and the venue was no more than a 20-25min walk, in addition to the metro-mover one block away, so transportation was no issue.

Great Condo!!!

We loved our stay at Rachel's Miami condo! The room had plenty of space and places to sleep for the 6 of us. Rachel was really easy to coordinate with for the check in and out process and she helped us with anything we needed. We were visiting Miami for Ultra and the condo/hotel was a short walk to the venue and there was a free trolly/metra that picked up and dropped off right outside of the hotel. Would book again at this condo or any of her others for sure! Thanks again for a great stay!

Beyond Gorgeous

Upon arrival Rachel was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and there were more than enough towel and linens for the week we were there as well as a washer and dryer. Down the street was a Publix grocery with all the essentials. The view was absolutely STUNNING. The balcony was one of my favorite things about the condo. Late at night you could sit and have a spectacular view with a good breeze and a beer. The weather was awesome ( me being from Michigan), it stayed in the 80's the whole time. Overall, I would try to make this a yearly event. Thank you so much Rachel, you made our spring break unforgettable :)

My friends and I traveled to Miami for the Ultra Music Festival for a 5 night stay in this unit, and from the moment we walked into the condo we were blown away-- mostly from the view of the balcony. It was absolutely stunning! The unit was well stocked with any household item you might need (linens, towels, dishes, bath robes, etc.). For a one bedroom condo and my group being only a small 3 person group, it was VERY spacious. Coming with extra cots and a futon for any other guests to stay in the unit. We were also provided with a laundry detergent since the unit came with a W/D. This home is beautiful-- just as you see in the pictures, that is exactly how it looks!! My overall experience was and will always be unforgettable, especially the attention given by Rachel! She was very helpful from the booking process, to allowing my friends and I to check in earlier since we got there early in the morning, and to just being very kind, welcoming, and helpful. Very professional and made sure our stay would be unforgettable... And it will be. :) I would recommend this unit to anyone traveling to Miami! I will MOST DEFINITELY be returning next year for the same vacation. Thank you again Rachel!

Exactly what I wished for

My stay in Miami was a total success thanks to Rachel! The Apartement we stayed in was perfect and above my expectations. The place was clean, available and efficient! Our host was a total peach, she welcomed us and made sure that our needs were fulfilled and that our questions were answered. The best service we ever received, I will be a repeat customer!
