Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Surfside, Florida
July 22, 2015
There were a few glitches during our stay. The bathroom sink leaked and it took 3 days to fix, the Lobby was being cleaned for three days making it difficult to access the valet in order to get my car keys, the valet/ doorman was missing for a while leaving the front unattended and tenants unable to get car keys, and the unit's bathroom needs to be updated. The units owner forgot the date we were arriving and although he offered to get us overnight lodging, it was an inconvenience. Also, the bathroom was dirty, the tub was blackened, and the floors were filthy. I cleaned the bathroom and floors once I checked in. There were no fitted sheets for the bed, all the sheets were flat, making it difficult to make the bed. The location was great and the beach/ pool was easily accessible. The evening doorman was very helpful. The kitchen was updated and had the necessities. All in all, it was a nice place and I'd consider renting again if the owner guaranteed that the cleaning service completely cleaned the unit and he made some updates in the bathroom. Even a simple addition such as a shampoo caddy and hooks for towel would be an improvement.

The condo has a great view although not direct. It is a nice large space, comfortable, with a fairly well equipped kitchen. Easy access to the beach from the lobby or through the pool area. The pool is clean and warm with a heated shower when coming from the beach. The beach is outstanding! The people that work the front lobby are helpful and friendly. It was hard to leave.
great location for price

condo exactly as described; perfect location right on beach with free parking and wifi; very clean; building security; on 9th floor; three blocks from grocery store and restaurants. Not so great: bed creaks; early morning garbage truck.

This unit is in a great location for both the beach and activities. Bath and beach towels in the linen closet, beach chairs in the L/R closet and a hairdryer in the bathroom cabinet. There is a large screen TV as well as a DVD player although I couldn't figure out how to use the DVD. The building's pool area as well as back lawn area were very nice and equipped with lounge chairs. Great dining a short distance away as well as a supermarket and other shopping. Buses stop right outside the building or 1 block East depending on whether you want to go North toward Aventura or South to South Beach area. Unit was comfortable and quiet. One tip: laundry card refill machine does not take singles... can only be filled in $5 increments so be sure to have correct denomination when you want to do laundry.
Surfside - Great Condo!

Great host, wonderful condo. The unit is equipped with beach gear, just bring your bathing suit and sun screen! The location is close to South Beach if you're looking for action, or stay and relax in Surfside. Plenty to do and many good restaurants in the area to choose from.....If you would rather stay in, the grocery store is nearby and the unit is well stocked with everything for cooking and dining in. There is a large screen TV, movies, music and books to read. Parking is available but in town, remember "pay-to-park" to avoid parking tickets. The owner responds immediately if you need something. The building is very safe, sleep with the windows open, let the sound of the waves sooth you to sleep.......and have a wonderful vacation. We did. Can't wait to return!!!

The apartment definitely needs some updating, especially the bathroom was kind of filthy. The dishwasher did not work. Location is great, only steps away from the beach.
We couldn't make

Unfortunatelly we couldn't travel because of Hurricane Sandy in NYC, The owner of the apartment was very kind and understood our situation and he will refund our entire deposit back... It will be for next time... Thanks for everything
Not reliable - One star is too much.

We e-mailed and spoke with the owner before leaving for Florida, and had arranged to meet at the building. The owner did not show up and we were left with no accomodation.

We had a comfortable stay. Condo is clean (just as presented in the pictures) with a modern design. The beach view is decent despite the balcony facing north. Nice quiet neighborhood makes for a relaxing stay. This was our 2nd visit, and we plan to return.

AVOID - DIRTY WITH COCKROACHES...
December 12, 2011
The apartment was not cleaned properly before arrival. There were large cockroaches running along the work tops also smaller ones all over the sink (this continued for the whole time we were staying there). In the kitchen I opened the cutlery drawer to find that cockroaches were squashed in there, meaning they were left prior to our renting. And one was left squashed on the side of the fridge, so whoever had killed it couldn't even be bothered to wipe it off. Cockroaches were in the bathroom (this was not a relaxing holiday for us as the whole idea of having critters running around just freaks me out). Bathroom floor had not even been swept so I doubt not washed, and the shower was rusty and of no use, so we had baths each day. Shower screen was scaled up and mouldy and in the shower screen runners there was brown scum that hadn't been cleaned up, (cockroaches were popping out from here - this was an uneasy bathing experience). We went to the store and bought some bathroom cleaner and cleaned this up but it needed more work to clean off the mould which we wasn't prepared to do as we were on holiday. Bathroom sink and bath didn't drain well. Toilet wouldn't flush so my partner opened the cistern lid to find the chain not connected, the link was broken but had been left like this, he then had to mend it with a rubber band that we had (in order for it to flush as I wasn't going to be putting my hand in the cistern to connect the chain every time I used it) - not exactly what you should be doing after a 10 hour flight and after being up for 24 hours. Bathroom wall was cracked and hanging off where the shower had obviously leaked, this would've been better scraped back to bare wall than left hanging unsightly and having cockroaches behind it. The floors, rugs and bedroom carpet hadn't been vacuumed, we did this too (although it took my partner 30 mins to clean the blockage from the vacuum so we could use it). Bath mat was stained so were the bath towels, the beach towel was too awful to use at the pool. No clean sheets for the 2nd week, I had to wash and dry them. Covered in bites from settee I have never been bitten on holiday. Owner called one day said to my partner he never knew about cockroach problem but 3 days before his visit the bug man came to spray, he had his own key to apartment, told us he came monthly but this spray never stopped them - what would it be like in a month? We have stayed in Miami for 11 years but never with dirt & cock

Watch out for a switch

In November 2010 I sent a deposit to hold this property. Later that day I received a receipt to that effect. Subsequently I received another email putting me in another location. After I called, I was told there had been a mistake, and after I talked to the owner, I was to be in this property after all. On June 29, 2011 I charged my card for the full remaining balance and received a receipt and an email that indicated the valet will have the keys when I arrive. On July 24, 2011, while I was out of the country and unreachable, I was called on my cell phone. When I reached a location where I received cell service I returned the call in which I was told that my reservation had been double booked and that I had to call another number, apparently a friend of the owner, to find out where I was going to stay that night. The friend of the owner was accommodating but his unit was not on the ocean and although comfortable, was not what I had desired for my stay. How in the world did my accommodations get double booked between June 29 and July 24? I have a strong suspicion that it wasn't double booked, but that the owner received a tenant for a longer stay than mine and basically decided not to honor his commitment to me. This is the only conclusion that I can come to. Be careful with this property, as you may not get to use it.

The owner booked us in another condo, but never told us. We found out by accident. The other condo was not so nice, and now we're scrambling to still experience our vacation! WATCH OUT!
