Place is beautiful!

The place is beautiful! Very clean and spacious, and the view is amazing! We worked with Mia during the trip who is Rachel's business partner, and she was an absolute gem! Highly recommend booking with Rachel and Mia! They were the best!

Space was exactly as pictured!

We loved staying at Rachel & Mia’s place for our three night girls’ trip. The space was exactly as pictured, great size for three of us, and having two bathrooms was essential! The amenities in the building were super convenient—coffee, mini mart, fitness center, restaurants—and quick ride to South Beach. We walked to Wynwood Walls one day and it was about a 30 minute walk. Rachel and Mia were communicative the entire process and made check in and check out super easy. I would definitely stay at their place again next time I’m in town!

Wonderful Experience!

The unit was modern and extremely clean. Rachel was very responsive and helpful. Check in and check out was a breeze. We will definitely stay at one of Rachel's places again next year. Overall we had a wonderful experience.

We had a great experience staying at this apartment. The place was spectacular, clean, and even bigger and better than it looks online. The views were great and the location is super convenient. We communicated with Rachel, Mia, & Joe during our stay and they were all very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend :)

I loved this place, when I go back to Miami would love to stay here again. I felt at home, but with a better view. It was super quite exactly what I needed for my stay. had convenient markets and restaurants in the lobby. But the best part I was super close to everything I needed.

This place is amazing. The view never gets old. And Mia (Rachel’s assistant) was more than helpful. When we arrived early from our red eye flight, she checked us in early and made sure everything was taken care of. She even checked in on us over the weekend. Recommend this place

Rachel’s place is GORGEOUS! Super clean and comfortable, with killer views. Beds are super comfy as well! Located at the Grand DoubleTree, close to everything, we couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Rachel also accommodated us within 24 hours after our previous Airbnb canceled on us last minute. She was a lifesaver!! Loved it, will stay again next time I’m in Miami!

The accommodations were OUTSTANDING and I could not have been more pleased. Loved everything about my stay at the Grand. The idea of taking care of my laundry before I got home was a pleasure. Too bad the weather wasn't a little warmer but heck, we can't have everything. Thank you for providing such a wonderful unit.

Convenient location with view

This condo worked out perfect for our stay in Miami for a trade show. The location on the bay made the use of water taxis easy. Its location is good for easy access to interstates. The view of downtown Miami and the bay is incredible. The condo was immaculate and spacious. We would definitely consider staying here again.
