Long coast of sandy beaches and clear blue waters, Miami Beach is undeniably one of the most beautiful places to enjoy the sun, sand and sea. Its coastline stretches along the side of the island and is quieter and peaceful at the north while bustling with bright lights and stylish restaurants in the south. At south beach, you get to walk through the famous Ocean Drive, shop at Lincoln road mall and party at the most iconic clubs in Miami. For this, I recommend staying at Architect’s South Beach townhome on south beach listed on Airbnb; a two story townhome that reflects the flair of Miami Beach.
Stay in a stylish and modern townhome
The apartment is beautifully designed and furnished; bright colours and clear windows let in the Miami sun that brings energy to the rooms. On the first floor is the kitchen, living room, working desk and a single toilet. The kitchen has a coffee maker, large fridge, built-in stoves, an oven and a microwave oven that you can use to cook and prepare food.
The kitchen is also stocked with basic condiments, tea and coffee that will help you start the day right. Thereafter, you can take a seat on the high chairs of the dining table or rest on the living room couch fit for 3. Against the wall of the room, not seen in the above picture, is a slim working table that sits 2. There are power sockets near the table where you can plug in your electronic devices.
Rest in comfortable and bright rooms
The townhome belongs to Laura and you can see the personal touches she has made to each room. Up 2 gentle flight of stairs are 2 bedrooms with a double bed in each. The rooms are similar in size and are furnished with 2 side tables and a simple clothes rack for you. The rooms are clean with a lot of natural light. The whole home is air-conditioned, which keeps it cool even during the hot summer months.
Clean toilets and showers
There is a well-furbished bathroom with a standing shower on the second storey of the townhome as well as another toilet on the first floor. This makes it convenient for those who are travelling as a couple or in a group. Besides being well stocked with all the toilet rolls that you may need, there are shampoo and body soap – eliminating the need to bring your own toiletries.
Impressively, clean bath and hand towels are prepared beforehand for guests. The toilets are kept very clean, as is the rest of the home. Laura makes a point to keep it that way and expects guests to do the same so that many can enjoy their stay thereafter.
Always have fresh laundry
In the toilet on the first floor, there are the washer and dryer for you to do your laundry. They are easy to use and can also be set for specific wash timings and temperatures, great when you want to be careful with drying your swim suits. There is also an iron and ironing board on standby if you need it.
Get around easily from the airport and to main attraction areas
Laura’s townhome is ideally located 4 blocks, a 5-minute walk, from the ocean drive and the beach. There are restaurants along Ocean Drive and local Cuban and Mexican cafes where they serve good portions at great prices. The house is easily accessible by public transport to and from the airport.
Lauren is an experienced host; she understands travellers and prepares her home to make your stay easy and comfortable. She is contactable if you might have any questions and helpful if you need anything. I am confident you will enjoy a stay at her lovely home!
