For your attention is a privately owned room in the famous newly renovated Shelborne Condo-Hotel, located in the heart of South Beach. Our room has a pleasant view of the ocean and the legendary pool of The Raleigh Hotel.
The room is equipped with two queen beds, walk-in closet, cable TV, DVD, CD, and A/C with climate control. A wireless high speed internet is available in the room.
The room has a kitchenette with full fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, juicer, toaster and utensils.
For your convinience and comfort our room is equipped with good quality cotton linens, towels, beach towels, iron, board and hair dryer.
Shelborne amenities are: night club, bar, restaurant, fitness gym, pool, concierge service, direct access to the beach and etc. There is a bar and a restaurant right by the pool with two giant hot tubs on one side, and quiet lawn on the other side, with private exit right to the beach.
Condo-Hotel means that every room in the hotel belongs to a private owner. Some owners rent their units through a Hotel Management. Those rooms are cared by a hotel and have a daily maide service. These rooms are the most expensive and may cost up to $550 for the room identical to ours. To rent those rooms you have to call a Shelborne reservation. Some owners rent their rooms via third party, people posing themselves as a hotel reservation service. Price is a little better than hotel but no daily maid service. The rest of owners, like us, rent their rooms directly to guests.
Our room is clasified as an "ocean view" and all pictures, where you can see the ocean and The Raleigh pool, are made from our room window. We did not feel appropriate to post professional pictures from internet, so all pictures on this listing are made by room owner. Sorry if quality is not the best.

I have stayed here 1 week every summer for the past 5 years. Last year some friends and I went down to Miami Beach. I stayed in this room and they stayed at other hotels. Every day they all came to my room to get dressed and to meet to go to the beach or out to eat because of it's convenient location. I am looking forward to staying here again in 2013. Mike is awesome and returns calls immediately!! Kimberly:)

Perfect LOCATION, efficient ROOM and plenty to do weather you are a couple, family with kids or friends traveling to have a fun weekend. Even before I booked the trip, Mike's prompt replies and professional approach made me feel good about traveling to Miami with two little kids ages 1 and 3. The room is your typical hotel room ( keep in mind that hotel guests are paying almost 3 times the price you are), however it had EVERYTHING a family with the children could ask for - all the items listed in the description and even more were there. The view is great - you can see the ocean, ships departing the port and luscious pool deck of the neighboring hotel. And with so much to do in Miami Beach, the room provides everything for you to start your day, be on the go and relax after a long day out - I hope you are not planning to stay in your Hotel room while visiting Miami Beach:) Parking could be a challenge, but if you are patient enough, you can find a spot right next to the Hotel - we made a few circles and finally found a spot right next to the Hotel and could see our car from our hotel window and then renewing the meter was not a hassle at all. Hotel itself is clean, well kept and staff is friendly. You have access to all the Hotel amenities - pool, gym, restaurants. Pool is very well kept - perfect alternative to the sandy beach. Beach is right in front of you - just grab a towel and cross the courtyard. Beach is great - definitely busy as we were traveling during the busy winter season and there are plenty of people, however the sand stretch is very wide and you should not have an issue finding a nice spot to relax. But most of all - LOCATION! You cannot ask for a better place to stay while visiting South Beach. EVERYTHING is within a walking distance - we did not have to use a car even once! And we walked everywhere with two little kids in tow. Lincoln Rd Mall, Espaniola Str, Art Deco, Convention Center and Ocean Drive are all within a walking distance. And I went to the concert to the American Airlines Arena downtown Miami - taxi ride home was only $25. I highly recommend this room if you are looking for a great location, nice and well kept room - book it and use the money you save for a fun times in Miami Beach!

This was the second time my friend and I stayed in unit 741. Just like the first time, the room is wonderful. The shelborne has been renovated and has a great pool area. I am looking forward to my third time staying at the property. And to top it off Mike values customer satisfaction!

Miami Beach pour un prix raisonnable dans un hôtel rénové. Belle piscine, jaccuzi. La salle de bain de la chambre est un peu vieillote, il n'y a pas de salle de sport dans l'hôtel (en cas de pluie), absence de point d'eau vers la partie repas.

We stayed here last year and liked it so much, despite all of the construction going on, that we booked again. The construction was still going on, and it was pretty crazy. But once in the room, it was as it had been before. As the hotel had a deadline, the lobby was finished by Friday evening, and it now looks lovely. We never made it to the pool, as we were on business. But the flat is super luminous, clean, and conveniently located. Appointed with a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, dishes and cutlery, ironing board. Very nice. Mike, the owner, is super responsive and a delight to work with. He alerted us to the heavy construction in advance in case we wanted to make other arrangements, but we really like his condo at the Shelbourne. The lobby is now very Miami Fabulous. The only reason I didn't give this five stars was because of all the crazy construction and chaos, but that was clearly not the owner's fault. I imagine this will all be taken care of by late December or January. The walls of the building are a little thin. It only became an issue on a Saturday night when 4 frat boys were partying very loudly all night next to our room, banging the doors all night. Again, nothing that the owner has any control over and an issue that happens in every hotel in South Beach. At least all of the ones we have stayed in for the last six years. Saturday nights in SOBE are sleepless! :)

I (24) went with my mom (50) to Miami Beach in September, starting our journey from Sweden, then onto Germany and from there to Miami. Taxi from there to Shelborne hotel (where the condo is), it took less than 20 minutes. Texted Mike (the owner) from the cab, got told to message again when I was at the hotel, and he sent a guy to open the door for us on the 7th floor, and we found the two keys to the room nearby the TV. Checking out was only about clearing our stuff from the room, locking the door from the outside and throwing the key in under the door. Done. The security deposit was paid back about 2-3 days later on Paypal. + Location: close to Lincoln St., Ocean Drive, and the beach. There are two 24/7-stores near or at the crossing of Collins Ave. and Lincoln St. (5 minutes walk), where you can get food and drink to put in the fridge in the condo for your breakfast if you want to eat in. + Good sized fridge and freezer, also has toaster, hairdryer, coffee machine, AC and a big flat screen TV with a lot of channels and a built-in DVD player + Easy and flexible check-in and -out procedure + An owner you can trust + Good price + 2 sets of keys +/- Can reach free Internet Access from the hotel across the street, but the quality and speed of it varies. - No cooperation with the Shelborne Hotel (in the same building) whatsoever, can't get a taxi or make a call at the reception even if you're willing to pay for the service. Would be a good thing if you could at least leave the keys at the reception when going to the beach... - Renovation in the building was under way during our stay, some noise during daytime because of this, and the pool could not be used - The water temperature in the shower changes between warm and hot, be aware! I'd say I would be coming back if I go to Miami Beach again. At least after the renovation is done.

My boyfriend and I spent the week in this room in South Beach and the experience was unbelievable! The room and hotel were awesome. It is in the perfect location next to everything. We took a cab once and that was when we went out of town. It is 2 seconds from the beach! Everyday we went to the the beach and the pool back to back. The beds in the room were so comfortable too we slept like babies. The shops, restaurants and nightlife were all easily accessible throughout the entire day! The concierges in the hotel were very helpful and definitely helped us with places to go during the week and even gave us some discounted passes to go to a few clubs. The whole experience is definitely unforgettable. We have made so many amazing memories during this trip and definitely plan on coming back very soon!

Can't beat the price for South Beach.Place was clean and mike was great to deal with. Only complaint was parking and elevators. Only one working for condos due to construction and the waits were verry long.

This studio condo was PERFECT for our girls' trip weekend in SOBO! Clean, comfortable, and a wonderful location with an ocean view and just steps to the beach. Owner Mike was very accommodating, always available, and answered ALL of our questions. Great to have the kitchenette. Beds are comfy, location is quiet and not in the heart of the SOBO all-night-long partying noise, but still withing walking distance of EVERYTHING...clubs, restaurants, shopping, etc. Heated pool and hot tubs are very nice too! I would recommend this condo to ALL of my friends and family and cannot wait to return and stay again. No reason to look anyplace else!

Although the building is bit outdated, this condo is good value for money in overpriced SoBe. Very attentive owner.

Good location close to the beach and Lincoln Road. Room was clean and presentable. The beds were cheap and uncomfortable and the bed linens were old and grungy. Because of that we wouldn't stay here again. We couldn't get a good nights sleep.

Loved that we could walk out the hotel to the beach. Room was comfortable and clean. Mike was easy to deal with and very prompt and accommodating. Good experience overall.

This was a great location and was exactly as described. The air conditioning was great, the refrigerator and kitchenette were awesome. The room is small but adequate and the hotel is in the best location on South Beach. Mike was very helpful and always available.

By far the BEST place to stay while you are in Southbeach. Awesome location and SUPER FABULOUS price. Everything was just as described!! I will definitely stay here again.

As a first time renter, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy and accommodating the whole vacation rental process was. Everything was available and functioning as promised and Mike was excellent at keeping in touch and making sure the check-in and check-out process was seamless. From the initial contact and PayPal payment to the prompt return of the deposit, I was relieved and impressed with my rental experience. As a party of three, we had plenty of room and all the towels we needed! The studio was clean with nice linens and all the promised amenities you could need. The studio is located right next to the beach and only a few blocks from the shops and dining on Lincoln Road. There's even a karaoke bar downstairs that's open practically all night. I would definitely recommend this rental and plan on coming back next year!

Pros: - Great ocean view and location. - Affordable. Cons: - Ceiling leaks when it rains: would have been 4 stars if it didn't rain, 2 stars if it rained more than a couple hours. - Can't get a consistent temperature in the shower. - Linens/sheets need to be replaced.
March 14, 2010
The room was just as pictured however we were missing 2 beach towels which we requested throughout our stay and were never given. There were only 2 rolls of toilet paper available and we had to buy more when we ran out. There was also a leak in the closet that someone came to fix a day after we reported it, but then it began leaking again. However, the deposit was returned the day after we left which I really appreciated and getting into the room at check in time was simple. Nice pool, great beach access, good location just a walk to restaurants and clubs.

The owner of this unit was on the ball.Anytime i called or text him he got right back to me.For the price that i paid,i was satisfied.The only complaints that i had was the bathroom was not cleaned thoroughly when i checked in,the shower temperature changed from warm to hot without warning and the air conditioning vent leaked water on my clothes in the closet.The price was good and the hotel was nice.

This is a great studio - it is exactly as described. We had a wonderful stay there for 4 nights. Mike is always there to answer questions. For the price it is a steal in south beach. I would definitely stay there again if plans permit.
January 21, 2010
i was extremely happy with my stay. The room was exactly like it was described on the web site. room was clean and presentable. the location was perfect, the back yard of the hotel was the beach! i took full advantage of the hotels heated pool and hot tube. the hotels popping karaoke bar in the basement was a great place to end nights. the owner was very accommodating, gave us 4 keys, and he was ready to help us with the many problems we had. down sides. the air conditioning had a small leak in the closet.

I stayed at this property during Miami Art Basel to avoid the incredibly high hotel rates and was pleased that the apartment was as advertised. It is perfectly clean, very conveniently located next to the best hotels in the area, and the interactions we had with apartment owners and staff of the hotel were pleasant and professional. For the price, it truly cannot be beat for an oceanfront room in South Beach.

The process of getting into the room was complex as security was hesitant to let me into the room although I had fulfilled all the requests made by the suite owner. I spent about 20 minutes waiting for the room. The owner was very accesible when I ran into trouble-very prompt to return phone calls and texts. You also will not have access to all the resort amenities. Valet refused to park my car b/c the suite was private rental and not part of the hotel. I ended up having to pay $50/night for parking. Concierge wouldn't let me use the hotel's public computer for internet access either. The room itself is nice. I was very busy and didn't spend a lot of time in it. I felt things were pretty clean. Lots of towels to use. Good water pressure in the shower. The best thing about this suite is its location...right in the middle of SoBe, close to everything-beach, stores, transit, clubs.

Great location and nice pool if you don't feel like going to the beach which is only a few steps away! :) Would love to come back!

Everything for this room was exactly as described. With the beach directly behind us and the main strip just 2 blocks away, we were never at a loss for what to do. The hotel itself is beautiful and the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. The owner was easy to reach for any questions, and I received my deposit the day after I got back.

Excellent location, room was clean and had everything we needed. The Hotel has a cool pool area and a karaoke bar downstairs. Mike was very helpful too!
August 26, 2009
Great location, great value, clean and safe. Reservation was easy. Mike answered all my questions and was very accommodating allowing early check-in. Easy walk to South Beach, Lincoln Road, Washington Ave. Right on beach. Deposit was refunded quickly as promised. All in all, not a worry. Will definitely be back.
August 12, 2009
Good value, good view and clean place. I have to admit I was a little leary about sending money via paypal to an unknown person but talking with Mike over the phone a few times made me feel more comfortable. Mike always answered when I called. Everything worked out great. Carlos who works at the hotel meets you and lets you in as soon as you arrive. I would definitely recommend and stay there again.
August 10, 2009
Mike was very great to work with. Everything went so smoothly, and we had ZERO problems. We look forward to staying in this unit again NEXT SUMMER!
August 8, 2009
Mike was an exceptional host. He was very responsive, very flexible and, most importantly, he offered us an incredible value for the money we spent. The condo is perfectly located next to the beach and premier shopping and night-life. He keeps the place clean and the view really is wonderful. The unit is in a quieter part of the hotel so sleeping was not difficult. I highly recommend you save your money for the costly dinners and shopping in South Beach and stay here! Thank you again, Mike, for a nice, comfortable getaway!

We had a great time in this nice studio. A reservation was very quick and easy, as well as getting back our deposit. This studio is perfectly situated; not in the middle of a crawd but close to everything needed. We'll come again and recommend to all. Thanks Mike
June 22, 2009
I had rented this studio at the last moment. It took me three days to make decision (cracking the owner's head over the phone with hundreds of question) and three minutes to make a reservation. After such patience and attention from the owner, I was double surprized to find very good studio, very clean and with real ocean behind a window (I expected it to be just a lure). A restaurant in hotel is OK, however Lincoln Rd. or Espaniola way are just in few minutes of walk. On the other hand hotel's cafe is right by the pool and hot tubs. Overall it is just great. Thank you Mike. We'll come again.
June 3, 2009
A booking process was very simple and convenient. Owner was very pleasant and honest. A vew from the room window as described in the ad. Our friends had a room on the street side of the hotel. That was a disaster, especially during a night. They hadto sleep in our room. Our room was clean, fresh and had all we needed for vacation, even beach towels and bamboo beach mats. Highly recommend this room and owner.

The location is ideal. Beach, shops, clubs, restaurants, sport recriation, theatres you name it, it's there, just walk to it. The room was very nice and well equipped. The owner very friendly and helpfull. I will surely recommend this studio and definetely will come again.
May 28, 2009
A room was super clean. Everything, (including the view) as described. All you expect from hotel room is there. Owner was very helpful and honest. Location is the best, in the middle of everything. I will definitely be back again! Thank you !

I have stayed in several privately owned condos on South Beach but this one was more affordable, cleaner and and just overall nicer. The owner stayed in constant contact and always returned phone calls and email promptly. My deposit was also returned immediately at the end of my stay. This condo is right on the beach and in the heart of everthing going on between Ocean Drive and Collins Ave. I highly recommend the great little condo on South Beach.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this property for 2 nights. The hotel has mixed reviews because the rooms are so different. Well, this one was very clean, not shabby at all, small but cozy. The hotel lobby was recently renovated, looked nice. Location is great too, the hotel is on the beach, walking distance to anything. Not exactly beachfront but you can see the ocean out of the window. The owner is great, replied to all the messages very promptly, everything exactly as described, I would definitely deal with him again. Great deal for the money.
