Ah Miami, possibly one of the cities in the USA where you can go out of your home and step onto the white sands barefooted during the winter. This city is known for its 3,200 hours a year, creating a sunny cheer that even the southern states can’t beat. There are a ton of water activities that can be enjoyed at Miami’s picturesque beaches, and let’s not forget about the famous partying scene! The many clubs in Miami are often packed with multiple celebrities making an appearance. The wide variety and diversity of clubs means that everyone can find something to suit their tastes.

But, enough of what’s Miami’s known for, because you probably already know! But, how about the best accommodations in Miami? Since Miami is constantly boasting tropical weather and white sandy beaches, here are the best HomeAway and Vrbo beach accommodations for every beach lover:

1. Experience oceanfront perfection at this 2-bedroom sanctuary (from 494 USD)

Fellow travelers - great location. Across the street from the Palms hotel, and just beyond that - beautiful Miami BEACH.- There are lots of little shops and restaurants nearby. Our host provided e-keys through our smart phones (make sure your phone doesn’t run out of power - lol!). Plenty of room for the kids, hubby and me. Lots of towels - bath and beach (umbrella and toys provided too). Small laundry down the hall. The kids said the tv cable didn’t really work - we weren’t inside enough for that to be an issue (blessing in disguise?). Tara
Stay at an accommodation just a few steps away from the beach, and even if don’t feel like having a beach day, you can enjoy the beautiful views of the ocean right from​ the comfort of your room. Don’t let this two-bedroom apartment fool you. It actually consists of 1,000 square feet (93 square meters) of space and is able to sleep a maximum of 6 people. Also, it boasts sleek, contemporary designs that’ll have you feeling the beach vibes just by looking at pictures of the apartment! The apartment has two separate bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with two single beds. There’s also a sofa bed in the living room and, if you need even more sleeping space, you can hire a queen-sized airbed too! You’re sure of a good night’s sleep after your day’s diverse beach activities! The comfortable living room, complete with arty prints on the walls, a sofa bed, and cable TV, is an ideal place to chill out after a day of soaking up the sun.

This sleek apartment also comes with free Wi-Fi, and it has received a ton of positive reviews! The apartment is located just steps away from South Beach, so you can wake up to white sand right at your doorstep. You’re also really close to several of the surrounding international restaurants, lounges, nightclubs, and more.

Nearby attractions include Bal Harbour Shoppe’s, Bayside, Port of Miami, Coconut Grove, and Downtown Miami. There are several museums and golf courses, including Parrot Jungle and Seaquarium, that are easily accessible from the apartment. And, probably the biggest convenience of all is that it’s very easy to get to from Miami International Airport!

2. Stay like a king or queen at The Alexander All Suite Oceanfront Resort (from 357 USD)

This is a very nice condo and was a great value for what we paid. The girls had a blast! We enjoyed the view from the room. The pools were nice and resort style and the beach was only a few steps away through a gate from the pool. The beach all kinds of watersports including jet skiing and paddling. They also rented chairs and umbrellas. The bar at the pool had modestly price drinks and had a $12 dollar slider special which included 3 sliders and fries. Including my drink was a total of $25.

I would definitely stay here again! Tekeia

Drift off to sleep in the plush king-sized bed, one of the two comfortable single beds in the second bedroom, or the sofa bed in the living room. The single beds also have extra pull out beds underneath (trundle beds). Wherever you choose, you’re sure to have a restful slumber. The private balcony allows you to sip on a cocktail and enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The resort comes with amazing hospitality.

Sara
If you want the ultimate privacy for you and your family, consider this full-house rental situated at Miami Beach. This house comes with tons of space both indoors and outside.

It is capable of sleeping up to 12 people, great for a fun family vacation in Miami or a beach getaway with friends. The gorgeous master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, an armchair, a desk, and a flat-screen TV. You’ll certainly have no trouble feeling right at home in here! Retreat for a bit of peace and catch up on a movie while sprawled on the bed.

Another two bedrooms also have a queen-sized bed, one with a flat-screen TV too. The last bedroom has two daybeds, one of which can convert to a king-sized sleeping space. Try not to fight over who sleeps where! The large living room is an ideal space to chill out and spend cosy evenings together as a group. Settle down in front of the TV or perhaps play a few games.

Families will be pleased to find the home is equipped with a baby’s crib and a highchair. Really, every member of the family has been considered!

Sit down to dine at the sturdy wooden table with its mismatched wooden chairs and appreciate the charming rustic style. The house is in a convenient central location that is not only safe and upscale, but also close to several known attractions, such as The Art Deco District, Lincoln Road, and tons of other shopping areas.

Additionally, although it’s located on South Beach, you won’t have to deal with the congested crowds and overwhelming noise levels because it’s situated on the quiet area of the beach.

With a fully-equipped kitchen, loads of sleeping space, facilities for the younger members of the family, spacious interiors, a large garden, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, and more, there really is nothing more that you could ask for in this beautiful home!

There's more to Miami than just its beautiful beaches!

Fun fact: many people don’t realise this, but Miami is actually a centre for the arts. Galleries and art exhibits such as the Dina Mitrani Gallery and the 6th Street Container have seen celebrities and art fanatics swarming the place just to get a look. If you’re looking for some art inspiration, head over to the Perez Art Museum of Miami on Biscayne Bay, considered to be one of the city’s newest art hot spots. Also, on the first week of December every year, thousands of collectors, dealers, artists, and guests arrive in the city for Miami Art Week, so be sure not to miss out on that!

Head over to the Art Deco District and marvel at the amazing architecture that’ll have you whipping out your camera to take a good photo in no time. Lincoln Road, on the other hand, is a shopping district where you can settle every little souvenir that you want. From book stores to cafes and clothing stores, you can easily get carried away over here!

If good times, great beaches, fabulous art, a lively night scene, and more sound like your cup of tea, book one of these great HomeAway and Vrbo accommodations and get yourself Miami bound!
