About the Owner
4.4 based on 7 traveler reviews
Great price in popular area
- Rating 4.5 due to older building with minor issues (broken kitchen fan, no fan or tub stopper in bath)
- Full fridge, double sink, versatile induction cooker & microwave
- Suitable if you like cozy and kitschy, not if you want slick & modern
- Good separation of living & sleeping areas in a small space
- Comfortable queen bed
- New windows open for fresh air
- Super ocean view, bring binoculars to watch cruise ships going by at night
- Good storage space: drawers, large walk-in closet which locks
- WiFi is nice to have - sitting at the little desk with ocean view
- New machines in basement laundry
- Elevators can be slow at times, but what's the rush?
- Beach chairs & towels are a real plus, shampoo/cream rinse a nice touch
- Large warm pool, tiki bar with tasty reasonable menu, great beach steps away
- Good bus access from airport & building is on main bus route
- Good location on Collins, quiet area but not far from the action
- Cosmopolitan feel with Spanish & Russian most prevalent
- No noise concerns with either neighbours or construction
- Hassle paying cross-border – recommend Canadians use Paypal
- Would return – thanks Jose!
200 % for what you pay
1. Awesome View of sunrise.
2. Valet Parking service is wonderful.
3. Pool is well maintained.
4. Beach is one door away.
5. The service was prompt and promising.
6. Bus and Bike rentals are right across the road.
7. Lots of Towels, beach chairs, umbrella, soaps and shampoos are provided.
8. Top of all, the price is less when compared.
Here are the cons:
1. Kitchen Vent fan does not work, if you plan to cook, limit yourself to Smell-less cooking
2. No way one can let in fresh natural air inside.The windows are locked, so you cannot open and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze.
3. The weak Cell phone signal. You can barely complete a call without disconnections. kitchen corner and restroom have better signals, but not strong enough.
4. If you plan to use the Internet provided by the room, know that there is no WiFi. One LAN cable is available for Internet, which means only one laptop will have internet at a given time. If you want to use another laptop/device you have no option but to get your own HotSpot. However, the weak cellphone signals make it harder for a continuous connectivity.
What an unknown Diamond? We absolutely loved it!
Excellent rental with a devoted owner
Aside from the great rental, Jose, the owner, and the security desk at the Castle Beach Club went the extra mile for us during our visit. They helped us out with a mixed up reservation and we couldn't have been more appreciative. We were also pleasantly surprised as we have never experienced this kind of service with a vacation rental. We 100% recommend this property!
Awesome and very clean

I want to say thank you for the use of your condo on Miami Beach last weekend. It was very clean and comfortable and the view was awesome. The security team there was very helpful and friendly. I am just sorry that my stay was not longer. I trust my security deposit will be returned to me soon. Once again thank you and I will be posting a review on vacation rentals soon.
Take care, Elaine

We rented from Jose Vasallo, unit 528 , it was nice and clean as he describes it in his ad, with lots of extras,we enjoyed looking at the ocean from the condo,the bathroom was a good size, lots of towels were provided. The kitchen had everything w plenty of cabinets and everything we needed, the furniture was arranged in a very functional way, the condo is nicely decorated and the closet with a lock is very convenient and secure. There was also a very good restaurant next door at 5401 Collins w good prices. Walgreens was about 10 blocks north and so was Publix.

We received your check Monday, thank you.
Your condo was nice and clean , like you described it, nicely decorated and I loved the cute towels in the bathroom ' I could have stolen them' just kidding. It was also very nice to have coffee, sugar, tea and many other things that were available to us, so we did not have to run to the store immediately.
There was so much closet space, and it was great to have the one that could be locked, so we did not have to worry about the jewelry, I do not travel with much jewelry, but this was a very especial trip and 3 different reunions.
We enjoyed the condo and Miami and seeing old friends, classmates and relatives after a very long time, and when we re-learned our way around it was even better, a good friend of ours has a 2 bedroom condo at XXXX Collins and he was there with our Godchild, what a coincidence that we were so close,we ate at the Belmar next door and the food was excellent and the price was right.
The kitchen was very efficient ,with an excellent lay out.
If you want me to write a nice review let me know.

I usually come to the Miami 2 to three time a year, I stayed in various hotel around south Beach, nothing to say about them.. Appart that they are quite expensive.
One of my friends told me about The Castle Beach Club, so I decided to stay there. It was amazing, prices are around $ 100 a night, very good security, free valet parking, free... something that is quite impossible to find on the Beach . The Studio that I stayed in was just perfect, clean, fresh towels, etc. every thing was included, and what a view !!!!!
People there seemed to me go there very often because they kind of knew each other.
And what a Pool, You can go straight from the Pool to the beach, as it is just behind the building. The beach is just perfect, clean, unlike most beaches around Miami Beach.
I will certainly recommend this place to all my friends and colleagues when they have to go to Miami.
C'est l'endroit rêvé pour passer de très bonnes vacances. ET VIVE MIAMI et le Castle Beach Club( Le Château de la Mer) I will surely be staying there the next time.
Clean and extremely comfortable - Loved it
I have a place to ALWAYS come back to!!!
