Reviews for this vacation condo rental in South Beach, Florida
June 17, 2015
My 4 friends and I stayed in a studio condo at 918 ocean Dr for 5 days. The booking process was simple, the owners responded quickly and answered any and all questions I had. I recieved the codes needed to enter the premises (no keys) 2 or 3 days before our arrival... so when we got there, we were able to walk right in. The condo was clean, had 2 queen beds, and a leather sofa bed that pulled out into a full size bed. Full kitchen with cups, plates and utensils for our use, plus bath towels/washcloths, 2 beach towels, 2 beach chairs, and 2 umbrellas... which is great if u don't have your own. You'd have to pay to rent them on the beach. The property is in the middle of "the strip" (same building as fat tuesdays), so if u want to be in the heart of the party scene, this is where u want to be. The beach is literally steps away. Prime location, good price, comfortable/clean room... would definitely recommend to anyone.

I have to admit this was my first time renting a home and not a hotel but it was actually a great experience. The apartment had a kitchen, a living room and a ocean view balcony. They provided wi-fi, towels, lounge chairs, a beach umbrella, and even boogie boards. There is only one thing I think everyone should be aware of, and it is that this room is right on top of Fat Tuesdays --a pretty fun and loud bar. If you are there on a weekend to enjoy peace and quiet this place is probably not for you because they play loud music until about 5am, and while the actual sleeping room is towards the back it is still pretty loud... but if you are there to party then you won't even notice. We had absolutely no issues, in fact I enjoyed the privacy much more than that of a hotel, I definitely would come back here next time I visit.

918 Ocean Drive - Nice Stay
April 7, 2014
Overall, it ws a very nice stay. The owner and his staff were very accomodating. If you are looking for a quite place to stay, then don't book this condo on a weekend, as the club right below was very loud right through the night. On the weekdays, you could hardly hear anything. You couldn't ask for a better location for the price.

GREAT OCEAN FRONT STAY!!
September 20, 2011
I recently rented the property for a party of three and had a great time. Upon arrival, we received an extremely warm greeting and a detailed tour. Everything was organized (from extra beach towels to the WiFi access code) so that we had a good vacation. The condo was very clean and we didnâ€™t have any problems with the utilities. The ocean view from the balcony is amazing. The property is located right in the heart of where you want to be for great food, live music, relaxation and fun. I would definitely stay here again.

â€œBetter than the hotelsâ€
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2015
I have stayed at many of the hotels on or around S. Beach and the rooms are not up to par for an ordinary hotel room. The hotels are high priced and don't even contend with hotels further out. This is because there is not a lot of renovation that can be done with the space.
So I started looking at condos. After finding this one with the location that blew my mind. I was impressed with the easy of booking and the friendly service. Lee and Omar were very professional and helpful. the room was in good shape. The photos are accurate.
For the cheap price, location, service, and security, I will definitely stay here when I come back to S. Beach.
I run in and out of town for short stays and I just with I could book shorter stays, like for just a weekend at this condo.

4 of 5 starsReviewed March 31, 2015
I needed a centralized location so I could walk anywhere I needed to be in South Beach and this property was in the right spot. Very comfy king bed plenty of space to stretch out. Surrounded by clubs, I was extremely surprised how little I was bothered by the outside noise, not nonexistent but completely tolerable...it was a major party week. The staff at DecoBeachFlats were friendly and easily accessible, although I had no reason to contact them. In a past booking a minor issue was handled immediately. This property was all I could ask for and everything I needed and the price was extremely fair value. I would stay here again without a second thought and this was my second choice since my previous apartment with them was booked when I was looking to go back. Looking forward to next years great vacation!

"Wonderful place to stay"
I stayed in this apartment for five nights in April, and I have no regrets and would definitely stay there again. The apartment itself is as shown in the pictures, was clean, and had everything I needed. The location was incredible... right in the midst of the best places on Ocean Drive and only minutes from the beach. My biggest concern about this location was the noise, but it was not an issue for me. During the week the noise was not an issue at all... sure you could hear music from the clubs below but it was very faint (not loud enough to be a bother) and it was completely silent at a reasonable hour. On the weekend - one of my nights was a Friday night - the music was more noticeable to a later hour, but still did not bother me. The bedroom is far enough back from the street that it was very quiet at any hour. I want to stress that the noise level was not an issue for me... it did not bother me before bed, and I never had issues sleeping. I think it would only be a concern if you stayed on a weekend, wanted to sleep in the main room, and wanted to be in bed before midnight. Lee was professional in getting everything organized, and once there Eduardo was friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. When I was there the elevator stopped working and I texted Eduardo and he was there in literally two minutes to help me get in (the elevator, by the way, was fixed within the hour so it was not an issue in the end). I very much appreciated his help and felt as though he'd be there to help me should I need anything. As I said, I very much enjoyed my time in this apartment and would highly recommend it. It is a very nice little apartment and very reasonably priced for what you get and for the location. Would definitely go back!

prima di tutto vorrei ringraziare Lee ed Eduardo per la loro efficienza. Ho soggiornato con mia moglie in questo appartamento su Ocean Drive nell'ultima settimana di febbraio. L'appartamento pur essendo su Ocean Drive e sopra una discoteca era silenzioso, ben arredato e con un comodissimo letto; cucina fornita con l'essenziale per cucinare piatti veloci . Unico neo: non c'era una pentola capiente per farci una bella spaghettata... dopo qualche si va in crisi di astinenza. Gli asciugamano e i teli per la spiaggia sono forniti per tutta la settimana mentre la biancheria per il letto Ã¨ cambiata solo a fine soggiorno di una settimana. Sono disponibili ombrellone e comodissime sdraio e vista la vicinanza della spiaggia, sono facili da trasportare. WiFi veloce ma qualche volta il modem andava resettato Si fanno tre piani con l'ascensore e sei nel cuore della vita notturna con ristoranti, discoteche e bar; la domenica la spiaggia Ã¨ un "carnaio" quindi evitare ed consiglio di andare a fare un giro a Key West noleggiando una macchina perchÃ¨ con tour organizzati sono troppo stretti con i tempi. L'appartamento Ã¨ ottimo per la posizione, per la tranquillitÃ e per l'arredamento; lo consiglio e ci tornerÃ² sicuramente anche il prossimo anno.

The apartment is just as described (1 queen bed, two sofa beds in living room), nicely equipped kitchen, and lots of windows and a French door/balcony. We found it clean and roomy. It came well stocked and even had beach towels, chairs and a beach umbrella (also a hair dryer and an iron). We were within walking distance to restaurants, laundry, supermarkets, drugstores, and a very good wine store. Lee replied promptly to all questions (during the reservation process) and sent reminder emails. Checking in and checking out was easy and straightforward. He was really accommodating: we arrived early and left late and when we had to call him (once, minor glitch with the front door, not his fault!) and he called back within 5 minutes. He even has associates who speak Spanish (which came handy for us, thanks Eduardo!). The only warning... If you've never been: Ocean Drive is a party zone and as such it is a bit loud. It was quiet in the bedroom but loud until late at night in the living room.

The #1 Place to be in South Beach...Period!
Reviewed by: TexanMade from Dallas, Texas
Where do I start??? First, the location. This location cannot be beat on Ocean Drive! The condo is right in the middle of all the action in South Beach. Right above Fat Tuesdays and right next to Mango's with a perfect view of Ocean Drive and the Beach. Booking The booking process was smooth and seamless. We actually contacted Lee about another property, but when he responded, he gave us a list of his other properties in South Beach and we fell in love with this one (apt. A). All of his properties seem great, but we really wanted a balcony and a view of the beach, so this one fit our needs. Lee was very prompt in responding to us whenever we contacted him by either email or phone. We paid part of the rental to book it, the rest is due at time of check in, either by money order or cash. There is also a $300 refundable deposit which was refunded back to us the day after we checked out. :) Check In Check in had a hiccup but it worked it out quickly. First, since we were checking in on a Saturday, it was a little difficult to coordinate with the valet to park the car on Ocean Drive and unload our luggage because the street was jam packed (no fault of Lee's, but just be prepared if you are checking in on a Saturday, it will be crowded). We met Eduardo (works with Lee) in front of the condo and he had the valet guy save us a parking space so we could take our bags upstairs. We had ten minutes which was plenty of time. Once we got upstairs, Eduardo showed us the lock box for the keys, which is outside the door (there was only one key though). We get inside, take a look around and pay the remaining balance of the rental to Eduardo. This is where the confusion came into play. Eduardo was not aware that we had already paid the $300 deposit and was asking for that money in addition to the remaining rental balance. We called Lee and he cleared everything up, but we did still owe for the parking garage (which we forgot about), which was $15/day. This is a discount from what everyone else pays, and the parking garage is just on the next block over, very close. You get a parking access card that allows you in and out of the garage during your stay. The Condo Exactly like the photos listed. Very clean, everything you need. Even though there's always people hanging out downstairs, I felt very safe here. The actual door to enter the property is on the side of the building and you have to have an access code to even get into the building. Condo is equipped with towels, toilet paper, paper towels, dishes, utensils, etc. There was no soap, so make sure you bring your own or get some when you get there as there are several little grocery stores nearby (there is also a liquor store the next block over which comes in handy if you don't want to pay the high price for drinks on Ocean Drive). Cable TV, DVD Player, radio/iPod dock, portable radio/CD player, beach chairs, umbrella, iron/ironing board. Only thing we would have liked was a washer/dryer, but hey who wants to wash clothes on vacation anyway? There is a bus stop right up the street on Washington ave that can take you into downtown Miami, $2 (must have correct change, either dollars or coins). There was never a dull moment here because all you have to do is go out on the balcony to people watch and look at all the cool cars go by. We saw every expensive car there is. Bugatti, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Maybach, are a common sight from the balcony. Mango's is next door and stays open until like 5:00 am so there is always loud music playing but it did not bother us and we were able to sleep thru it with no problem. Also the bed was very comfortable. Nearby Everything! Beach, restaurants (make sure to go to Mango's and Clevelander), clubs, shopping, Espanola Way, bus stop, South Pointe Park, Versace Mansion, Lincoln Road Outdoor Mall and several clubs. Checkout all that is required is to either hand wash the dishes or put them in the dishwasher to wash. Leave all the towels on the bathroom floor and leave the bed sheets on the bed. Leave the keys back in the lock box and put the parking access card on the bar. Summary If you want to experience South Beach to the fullest, contact Lee for this property! You won't be disappointed. If you are looking for a quiet rental, away from the party atmosphere, please look elsewhere. If you're looking for the "hot spot" and center of the action, book this rental now!

Words cannot begin to describe the experience me and my girlfriend had. Everything was very easy from booking the reservation to the moment it was time for check out. This location was in the perfect place and everything was as described. The owner of this unit was a great host in reaching out to us and making sure everything was what we expected. I would definitely rent this unit again and consider renting other units from this owner. Thanks for making out trip to Miami a memorable one.

918 OCEAN DRIVE APARTMENTS
I stayed in this apartment along with my wife and three other girls for a total of four nights and five days. Everyone was pleasantly surprised to see how clean the apartment was and by the fact that everything advertised and promised was there. Also Lee and his assistants made the whole process very seamless and responses to any inquiries were very prompt. As a matter of fact I felt like this was the easiest renting process I have ever been through. The location of this apartment is amazing. Everything was walking distance and believe me at 4 am after you are done clubbing this is a blessing. Lee was also very generous to let us check out of the apartment at 6PM, regardless of the fact that the contractual checkout was 11am; and he did so at no extra charge. I will definitely rent this place again next time I come down to Miami.

Reviewed on: 05/24/2013 for their stay in 05/2013Lee Baron provides excellent service from the time you contact him. It was easy, and he was very accommodating to our needs. I and my friends ended up staying on 918 Ocean Drive right above Fat Tuesdays, in the middle of all the action and it was great. The condo had everything we needed; a large bed, two futons, fridge, stove, microwave, dishes, flatscreen, and steps away from the beach and everything else. It was as seen in the photos, a modern dwelling with all amenities. His assistant was there at check in to make sure of everything, and they were both available for any problems. If you are able to sleep in spite of music, this is a treasure, for light sleepers, not so much. The best thing I liked about the experience was that we were right in the middle of all the action, no fuss, no muss. The thing I like least, is that I don't own this condo, hahaha. Thank you Lee, I will be back.

"Great apartment, Bathroom, & Location!!!"
Reviewed by: BeachBum from Cincinnati, OH
I stayed at this location from Oct. 31 to Nov. 4.. The apt was amazing!! This was my 3rd visit to south beach and definitely my best stay. The bathroom was large with a lot of mirror and counter space which was perfect for me and my friend. It is directly across from the ocean and next to all the best restaurants. We are coming back in June for a month and will definitely be staying at this apt if its available or at another one of Lee's apartments if its not.

This was absolutely the most stress-free stay that we have ever had in South Beach. Eduardo, Lee's assistant, was there to meet us with the key when we arrived. He also helped get all of our luggage in the unit. When we got up to the room we couldn't believe that we were in South Beach. The place was roomy, full kitchen, large closet, but the real attraction was the balcony. Standing out there and looking onto Ocean Drive gave us the best seat in South Beach. Walk across the street and we were right on the sexiest beach in america. There were some issues with the code on the building door but they were promptly resolved. The unit is directly over Fat Tuesdays and Mango's so there is some street noise at night but it really wasn't an issue for us and we are an older couple. Lee and his staff were wonderful and we will be coming back soon.

We rented the Studio and one BR apartment for a guys weekend..Fantasy football and partying. Both places were very clean and ready upon our arrival. All coordination with Lee prior to our arrival was excellent. Right in the heart of SoBe. Easy walking distance to all the hot spots on the beach! Recommend that you get the parking pass (we did) and no need to worry about your call all weekend...only 2 blocks away. Thanks Lee!

This was my 2nd time staying at this unit and that says alot! This venue is conveniently located near the hottest clubs, great bites and on top of Fat Tuesdays (easy access to alcohol!). I stayed here with 4 other guests and we were all comfortable during our 6 night stay. The black sofa bed is the bomb. I absolutely love the ocean view from the balcony and the bedroom. Beach towels, beach chairs, appliances are all available which is a plus! If you want to be where it's happening in SoBe, I highly recommend this unit.

Great Stay @918 Ocean Dr.
Myself, my wife and a couple of friends recently stayed at Lees ocean view unit at 918 Ocean Dr. Let's just say we had a Blast. You can not get closer to the Party that South Beach has to offer than this unit unless you camped out on the sidewalk in front of it. The unit provided beach towels/chairs full kitchen and all utilities you would expect in a private residence. You are steps away from all your vacation needs and when the sun goes down the party pretty much comes to you. Our wifi was not working and Lee was right over to fix it. When we arrived alex (lees assistant) was right there to show us to our room and get us started. Anyways long story short...a great experience all round and would definitely stay there again!!! Thanks Lee...David, Lyndsay and Friends!!!

I just recently stayed at this location on South Beach for a girl's getaway vacation. We were very impressed with the location being right in the center of it all. The beach was a few seconds away and we had access to all of Ocean Drive's restaurants by either walking right or left out of the condo. When we first arrived, we loved the decor of the condo and it was very clean. We also loved the fact it boasted a balcony which allowed us to see everything we wanted within our view of the strip. The amenities were great and we had everything we needed to enjoy a comfortable stay. When traveling back to South Beach, I would definitely rebook this condo and would recommend doing business with the owner. He made sure we received all of the necessary information before even signing the contract and had a suitable representative to meet us to give us key and additional arrival instructions. I have nothing negative to say about his service or his property, but if you're looking for a ridiculously affordable property with the homely amenities of a condo, then you have found the right place. Also, don't worry about any strangers entering the place, without the code to get in the building, you are out of luck which makes you feel at ease. If you'd like to be "In the Midst of it all," I'd definitely recommend booking this property.
Posted on Trip Advisor March 26, 2012..."Perfect Spot"

Best Spot in Miami
Out of all the places IVE stayed in Miami including other apartments this one takes the cake. Let me start by saying there is no better location in Miami beach better than this one. The location is on top of fat Tuesdays which seems to be where it all goes down in Sobe. The apartment was very clean and very well kept and everything was in full working condition. What I loved most about the apartment was the balcony if I Wasnt sleep or out id sit on the balcony and watch everything come alive and all the people walk by. Lee was a great host and was one phone call away whenever I needed him. All in all my vacation was amazing and this apartment had a lot to do with it. After my stay with lee I refuse to stay any where but here IVE just become a loyal customer.

We spent a very nice holiday time in South Beach. The location on ocean drive is perfect if you want to be lying on the beach all day and party at night!
The condo is very well furnished and modern. Everything is clean. The balcony with the ocean view is a must.
Lee and Alex are very helpful, they answered quickly to every questions or requests we had. As our flight back home was late, we had the possibility to make a late check out which allowed us to to get the most of our last day on SoBe.
We'll definitely come back!
Nb. As other guests said there is of course some noise in the living room (mainly during the week end), but you're here to party, remember?

This was really a great find. Lee was great from the beginning to the end of our vacation. This rental is right above Fat Tuesday's and had a great atmosphere. Lee keeps his places very clean and well cared for. The little balcony was fun to step out onto and take in the views and the night life. Can't wait to go back!

"Great Bachelorette Weekend"
For my Bachelorette 5 of us rented the condo for 4 days. It was right across from the main strip of the beach, right in the middle of the action. There are plenty of restaurants and bars right beside the condo and it is walking distance from most clubs. We liked that we had everything we needed to cook and had a big fridge to store all our food. It was a great weekend and I am glad we rented a condo rather than a hotel.

Love everything about this unit. It's clean, decor chic and has everything you need for the duration of your stay. The entire unit was redecorated so it felt as if I was in a new place from 2010 (added plus :)!!!). Location is accessible to all hot spots in Sobe as well. Working with Lee and his assistant alex, was worry free and quick. If you are looking for a "home away from home" look no further cause 918 Ocean is it!!

From Vacation Rental By Owner..."Ocean Drive Stay Was Great!"
September 21-I recently rented the property for a party of three and had a great time. Upon arrival, we received an extremely warm greeting and a detailed tour. Everything was organized (from extra beach towels to the WiFi access code) so that we had a good vacation. The condo was very clean and we didn't have any problems with the utilities. The ocean view from the balcony is amazing. The property is located right in the heart of where you want to be for great food, live music, relaxation and fun. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful Stay in SoBe! The property was everything described in the listing - which makes for a great start to the vacation. The condo was clean and well maintained. Appliances and utensils adequate for a family of 4. We really appreciated that an umbrella and chairs were provided for the beach, and the internet access.
The location was perfect for the beach, restaurants, bars, picking up tours, catching a taxi, shopping - no need to rent a car as everything was easily accessible. The flip side of this great location is that it can be pretty noisy at night into early morning. However, after the first night, we hardly noticed it.
We would absolutely stay here again, and certainly recommend it to my friends and family.
Lee, and Alex were great to work with, and very responsive to any questions, etc. Thanks to you both!

This condo is absolutely amazing! I came with a bunch of friends for a bachelorette party and we had the best time. The space was clean and the location was PERFECT! It's right on Ocean in the middle of all the action. There are so many restaurants and bars and shopping places nearby. The beach is literally across the street. It can be noisy at night, but who goes to South Beach to sleep?? On top of everything else, we were not only provided with towels, but there were also beach chairs and a beach umbrella for us to use too! We're already planning on a trip back next year and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Do yourself a favor and book this spot before someone else does!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this condo. I've been coming to South Beach for years and I always stay on Ocean Dr. However, these were by far; the best accommodations I've ever had on Ocean Dr. The location is awesome if you're coming to party! The condo was clean and nicely decorated. The building is safe and Lee was very accommodating to all of my parties needs. I'm coming back here!

It's also within walking distance of some of the major clubs in Miami like Mansion and Set. The beach is literally across the street which we both loved!Owner - the owner is great, he responded to all emails very promptly and gave us some great information regarding the area (restaurants, etc)Overall I would definately recommend this condo to other people thinking about going to South Beach, and I would personally stay here again on my next trip.
