We had a wonderful and very comfortable stay at Nicola's fabulous flat as a family of 4. The apartment is even better in person, pictures don't do it justice, it's extremely clean, beautifully remodeled and furnished like a luxury residence. The views are great and unobstructed from every window and the sunsets are stunning! The location is convenient for short drives to South Beach and Miami midtown and downtown and upscale shopping in Bal Harbor up north. There are buses and free beach trolley too. Although the building is in the residential and not commercial area, you can still walk to a few nice restaurants, located in nearby apartment buildings and hotels, walking distance away. You don't need to drive every day. The apartment comes with free assigned parking, so it's easy to have a car if you need it. The beach and the pool make it truly resort like experience without the crowds of a busy hotel! We really enjoyed spending time by the beautiful poolside and gorgeous beach with warm blue water and free beach umbrellas and chairs! We would love to come back and stay again! Nicola is a great and responsive host and cares about his guests. We got a great welcome and walkthrough from Stephano, who was so nice and helpful explaining everything. Antonella helped us streamline the checkout process and address any questions.
