The only reason we booked was for an early check in, messaged host prior to booking and he said it wouldn’t be a problem at all. Told him our arrival time and when we got there he was unresponsive, once we contacted him he told us we’d have to wait six hours because of cleaning a…

Well....Every now and then a guest arrives misinformed despite a detailed Confirmation sent prior to arrival; and then the perceived misunderstanding turns in to a claim of being mislead.....and escalates....and here we are. Arrival polices are pretty clear and listed in Air B&B, then repeated in more details in a Reservation Confirmation sent to every guest within 24 hour of booking; and well ahead of the arrival date. Apparently this guest either misread or (what I believe) didn't read the Confirmation.....and her expectations were unchangeable. If the apartment is vacant the night before arrival, we generally allow everyone to check in earlier if requested. If not and a guest is checking out on the day another guest is arriving, we still, typically allow the new guest to drop off luggage some time after 11-12, after the other guest leaves; then return later when the apartment cleaning is completed....which is what was offered here. Rather than copy and paste the unfiltered emails between this guest and myself, in which the guest makes unfounded claims of intentionally being mislead...I will simply say that there are several untruths contained in this guest's review and leave it at that.....The Facts that matter is that this apartment is one of the best valued and best located vacation rentals in South Beach.

LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION! I can’t not stress enough how central and perfect this place is located. Literally in the heart of South Beach. I had a great stay with my small group and I. I would definitely recommend this place.

Awesome location and a perfect unit to stay for a trip to Miami! We would definitely return to stay here again. Steps from the beach and endless great restaurants.

The home was in a wonderful location and the check in went smoothly. If you are looking for a small place in the heart of south beach, this is your spot! However, this is very much run as a business. There was no personal touches, local advice, or even shampoo in the unit. I am u…

I appreciate the positive comments and need to address the negative ones. Travelers who are expecting a home type stay or Bread and Breakfast type stay will have a difficult time finding this in South Beach. The reason is simple: Miami Beach has a very restrictive policy on short term rentals which means that 90% of all vacation rentals are either hotels or private apartments in buildings that are almost completely without Owner Occupants. Further, Condominium Associations throughout Miami Beach prohibit short term stays and vacation rentals in their buildings. The result: South Beach is not the place where you will find the type of stay that this guest was hoping for. While it is true that there are people who offer their apartments, or bedrooms in an apartment illegally, they are in fact illegal. Finally, with respect to the comment that the check out instructions were elaborate; and that extras were charged that should not have been; Please note as follows: 1-The only extras charged were the 4% Sales Tax that is disclosed on the Web Page as a separate charge due on arrival. (Unfortunately Air B&B only charges the State and County Tax and does not allow me to add this small cost to the price. 2-There is an Information Paper in the apartment which includes various things, like the WIFi info; and it includes a simple reminder to guests as to what to do when they leave...honestly, it is not complicated or elaborate. Anyway....the apartment is in a great location; has a true/Full Kitchen and is a better value than comparable Hotel rooms in the area. AND IT IS LARGER THAN MOST HOTEL ROOMS IN THE AREA WITH 3 SEPARATE PLACES TO SLEEP (1 BED AND 2 SOFA-BEDS.)
