Inviting with warm tones, minimal, artful decor, and breathtaking oceanfront views out of floor-to-ceiling windows, you'll quickly feel at ease in this condo.
Settle in to catch up on a favorite cable show on on a rainy afternoon, or draw the shades and take a peaceful mid-day nap. When the sunshine returns, head downstairs to lie poolside on loungers and work on your tan. Are you a tennis player? If so, bring along your rackets to play on the shared courts just outside the building. Beach access is also provided, so bring those swim trunks and good sunscreen for days spent frolicking in the refreshing Atlantic Ocean surf.
Other on-site options include taking a yoga class from the on-site studio, utilizing the Turkish and Russian bath services on-site, or freshening up any dirty clothes in the building's coin-operated laundry facility (additional fees apply).
All this action will make you hungry, so whip up simple meals or a hearty snack using the kitchenette's appliances, cookware, and granite counters. Eat together at the breakfast bar or the dining table with seating for two, or dine al fresco with panoramic coastal views on the outdoor balcony.
When it's time to call it a day, retire for peaceful slumber on either of two queen beds, which will accommodate up to four guests.
Wake up reinvigorated and ready for new adventures. Take out your laptop computer for adventure planning using the WiFi.

You could also play 18 holes of golf at the picturesque La Gorce Country Club (two miles southwest), take a local fishing charter to reel in swordfish, mackerel, and many more native species, or take the family out on a fun parasailing adventure.

Su ubicación es ideal para ir en familia.
Sus amerites son muy buenos.
Salida a la playa,hifi,picina lo más destacable.
Valet parking con un poco de demora en ciertas horas pero nada grave.
Con respecto a la habitación o departamento nesecita un poco de mantenimiento pero su vista es increíble sin dudas volvería
Clean and comfortable with a $1M view. Well appointed convenience store in LL. Excellent location situated between SOBE and NOBE. My only suggestion would be to supply the kitchen with better glasses, cutlery and utensils.
Beds were amazing. Waking up in the morning and immediately seeing the surf was incredible. Balcony was a great place to relax and watch the ocean.
The condo was great very clean and equipped to make meals and clean up after, couldn't beat the sunrise from the balcony!
The beautiful views and excellent pool area made up for it some, but would not recommend this unit. Too many negatives to list all. No oven, broken stove burner. Woman in rental office told us there was a hot plate in a cupboard only after we complained. Noisy room, hear all kinds of noise from neighbors and constant rumbling from other people’s sliding doors. Bed mattresses clearly low quality or old compared to any other condo have rented. Valet parking only- sounds good but be prepared to wait in long lines up to a half hour to either get or return your car.
We apologize for the difficulty with the stove - electric stoves and hot plates are no longer allowed in the condos.
Exactly as seen on the picture. There is also a Vacasa office in the building in case there is a problem. The condo was beautiful. Would stay there again.
The first night we found cockroaches in our room. I reached out and only got a simply sorry and that it is normal. Would have paid more to stay at a higher rated, clean place had I known this earlier. Also the bathroom sink leaked, and none of the dressers closed properly. There were also a lot of ants all over. Never again.
We are sorry to see this guest was dissatisfied with their stay. The room is sprayed weekly for bugs. Due to the climate, this is a fairly normal occurrence, and we do our best to stay on top of it. The sink leak has been fixed, and all drawers are closing correctly. Thank you!
Unit was nice & clean. Great location. Only problem was with valet parking. See above
I would stay away from this location at all costs. I was very unhappy with the quality of the room. The floors were dirty. The counters were dusty. The sheets on on of the beds smelled like body odor upon check in. The paint was flaking off the walls in several spots. Overall the room was very dirty and unacceptable. The hallways were very seedy had stains all of the carpet. I have several pictures to back up claims. It was very hard to believe that this location was the one shown on the VRBO page when we booked.
We apologize if this guest found the apartment in a less-than-clean state and wish they had called us so we could rectify the matter. The carpets in the condo common areas are indeed a little dirty and will hopefully be dealt with in the near future. Thank you!
Excelente el servicio de Vacasa y muy bueno el alojamiento, la decoración y las comodidades. Volveremos con seguridad.
The pictures depict exactly what you'll get, a view you can't beat and a tidy room. What the pictures can't show you is how loud it is when surrounding units open their balcony doors. That sound kept us up at night. There was also some construction happening between the building and the beach so that was a little noisy as well. However, the view was incredible and you could hear the waves from the balcony. Can't beat that location, view, seamless check in/out, and free valet. Would stay again.
We enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff. Good location. Nice room and view. Too many guests for a few personnel in the vallet parking service
We left after one night due to bugs and mildew in condo. The website pictures were not a good representation. The ocean view was great but if you looked down from the balcony it was a dirty mess. Not pleasant.
We had a pretty good time. The room is ok, but the view is beautiful. Feel like I paid for the view alone. There is no oven. So only a two burner stove. The one chair and umbrella provided are both broke, I feel like this is something small that could be provided to guest to make a nice difference. We did not see roaches but there was small bugs everywhere in the bathroom and would get into food if able. There was an air conditioner ceiling leak when we first arrived. Walked into water dripping on my head and almost falling in the puddle. We called and it was fixed that night. All in all it was decent for the price, but I really feel like there could be some small improvements that would make a big difference. If you go try out the hop on hop off bus. We loved it! The beach there is also beautiful!!
Miami is a wonderful destination for a holiday.
Great beach, very alive and vibrant feel in the South beach area. Great eateries and bars. Architecture extremely interesting and beautiful, entertainment venues are many and varied and doing a city tour and travelling down to Key West are a must. In April the weather was marvellous. Hope to return one day.
They had an exterminator for the pests (a couple of months ago), so not a single pest/ bug in sight. It's always a challenge in the south keeping up. I was concerned reading some other reviews, but happy to see an exterminator was called. Unit I found was very good and reflected what I expected, dated, great room and view, with a small kitchen and tub-shower that need some remodel/ TLC. The unit was clean and would definitely stay again.
My stay at Castle Beach was delightful. I had a room overlooking the ocean which was the perfect place to mix business and pleasure. I had a few minor issues that were attended to immediately. This is an old property, that appears to be getting a facelift in several areas. That can only improve any future stays.
The apartment is Very tidy, comfortable, clean André has an awesome oceanview. Amazing localizarmos with a Very helpful staff. I would stay again, definetely
Vacasa hosted a fantastic property. Great location and property/views are exactly as advertised. Party on and be sure to listen to Will Smith - Miami
this condo is need of a total remodel. from the nasty trim work to the a/c leaking on the floor and wetting the ceiling to the roaches living in the fridge and the lack of response to us needing towels to shower with this is not a place i would recommend at all. location is the only thing good about it.
The apartment has been fumigated to get rid of the cockroaches, and some walls and doors have been repainted. Thanks!
The only truth- is view!! From the balcony!! For more then two hours nobody could give me keys! When I called to agency, they did nothing, and didn't call back! There were informal amounts of different insect!! They were everywhere!!! There is no washing machine, plugs are not working!!!
We are disappointed to see that this stay was not more enjoyable. An exterminator has been hired to eradicate the insects, laundry is coin-operated and located on the first floor, and the outlets appear to have been out due to the circuit breaker.
This is a great place in a great location, if you like to relax this is what you need, view from balcony is perfect, beds can be better but a least are two and bigger enough, wifi was up and down at times, and this is a main issue cause Cel phone signal is really bad in room, kitchen is the low part, nice appliances but they have cockroaches if they fix this the experience should be a lot better, in less words this place is nice but with cockroaches kills a lot of the fun.
The building is dated and is not stroller friendly at all. Feel like a cheap motel once entering inside. We didn't feel safe at all. We found roaches in the fridge and alongside the bathroom. Internet is lagging or very slow. There is no phone service signal at all. We have Verizon and AT&T and the highest bar was one bar level the entire trip. Overall, I would not coming back again as I feel very dirty once inside. From the door to the tile everything needs to be changed. It really needs a major facelift to say the least. The only pro for this trip is the ocean view from the balcony.
We are very sorry to see that this guest did not have a better experience here; the Property Manager will look into these items as soon as possible.
This is the third summer we have come to Miami Beach for vacation. This has been the best experience of all 3 properties we have stayed. The view from our balcony was spectacular. The pool was great. The property staff were friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for a better week with excellent accommodations. We recommend it.
Very nice place to stay but it need to be a little bit more to update
es la 2 vez que me alojó aquí y realmente volvería , gente muy cordial sobre todo el parking. frente a una playa muy tranquila y una pileta muy agradable. y lo mejor es que prácticamente todos hablan español!!!
The view was amazing! The room was a nice room but it's a little run down. The pictures are over selling it. The surrounding amenities (pool, tiki bar etc.) amazing! No phone service in the room or on the balcony! The wifi internet does not work. We use an open wifi which works somethings.
We apologize that the WiFi was not working. The router has been replaced since this guest's stay, so the internet is working much better.
Excellent sea view and clean apartment.
However bathroom needs some TLC.
Also had issues with the lack hot water
Deberían tener más cuidados en terminaciones en general y elementos de decoración.
We had a great time here. It was our first stay on Miami Beach. We chose this unit for the great view and because the property has parking. The valets work very hard. We only had a wait longer than 5 minutes once, and it was unfortunate that we were trying to get our car at checkout time on Sunday. If we had realized, we would have planned our day better(we weren't checking out that day).
Realize it is an older building so everything isn't new and perfect but it was clean and had what we needed. The day we arrived the shower drain was clogged (I know Vacasa only took over this rental a week or so before our stay). We called about it before we went out for dinner. When we came back, it had been fixed. The maintenance man must have also seen the broken toilet paper holder in the bathroom because that was fixed as well. A couple times we had trouble with the wifi, but if we hit the reset button, it would work again, so no big deal at all.
The hotel is not in the main South Beach area, and we ended up thankful for that. We only went down there once and it was just a mass of people and noise and the traffic was ridiculous and there's nowhere to park, the pay parking lots were full. The beach is beautiful right by the hotel and there are a few restaurants right in that area (plus we got some food at the Publix grocery store) so we were happy staying in the hotel area. The best grilled fish we had (and least expensive) was at the pool bar at the hotel. The food there was good and we ate lunch or dinner there a few times.
Th deck on the unit is great, the view is just what you see in the photos and the unit looks just like the photos.
If you aren't uptight about having a brand new unit in a brand new building, and don't mind a few minor paint issues and irrelevant things like that, this is a great place to stay.
