When sunrise hits the Art Deco historic district, those lucky enough to remain awake after a night of club hopping experience a moment when everything seems new again on Ocean Drive. Sunsets may be better in Key West, but Miami Beach owns the dawn with pastel colored hotels that sparkle in the sun.
Some visitors, especially those coming from overseas, aren't really sure what area is best to start their hotel search. Keep in mind that Ocean Drive is located in Miami Beach, not Miami, so a hotel in Miami Beach will be far more convenient. Ocean Drive is a $32 flat-fee taxi ride from the MIA airport. The restored hotels along Ocean Drive offer a range of accommodations from absolute luxury to simple convenience. Miami Beach has accommodations for everyone from humble backpackers to international jet-setters and the hotels along the strip suit every level of taste and budget. It's also possible to reserve a privately owned condo if your party needs room to groove.
The Miami Design Preservation League has it's administrative offices at the Art Deco Welcome Center just across the street from the Clevelander hotel. The MDPL offers free public programs to explore the influences of 20th century design in Miami Beach including Deco era movies, architecture seminars and walking tours of the historic district.
Wednesdays through Sundays, join members of the MDPL staff for a 90-minute walk around the hotels, restaurants and commercial structures that make up the Art Deco Historic District.
Ocean Drive provides a rare opportunity to glimpse a landmark Art Deco area saved by preservationists who ultimately saved South Beach from destruction. Historic Preservation in the 1980s provided the backdrop for an emerging trend in fashion photography which re-introduced the raw beauty of Miami Beach to the world. Sometimes holding onto the past makes the future possible.

This is the first time that I stayed in an apartment rather than a hotel. We had a great time staying in this apartment. The apartment is in the middle of South Beach, in the heart of a very busy area, but the apartment itself is very quiet. We loved the area, everything at walking distance. Comfy bed, nice kitchen and amenities. We would definitely stay here again. Read more
Thank you so much for your kind review. Please do, We'd be pleased to have you return.

We had a great time staying here--the apartment is in the middle of South Beach, in the heart of a very busy area (which is part of the fun), but the apartment itself is very quiet. Comfy bed, nice kitchen and amenities. Cable could use some updating, but the wifi is great. We would definitely stay here again. Read more

My husband and I stayed at this Ocean Dr Studio during the month of November. We loved the area, everything at walking distance. Management was super friendly and access was very easy. Studio is small, but had everything we needed. Although it is right above Fat Tuesday the noise level is almost none on the second floor and we were able to get a good night's sleep. There is no view, but it is beach front, only steps away from the building door. Overall it was a great experience.
Great value and location

Traveled to Miami for a short business trip and this place was a great value. Location is at walking distance of everything, place is very clean and comfortable. Access was quick and simple, and I was even granted a late check out request with little effort. Management is very friendly. Will certainly return should the opportunity arise.

I stayed at 918 Ocean from 6/21-6/25. The apartment was literally above Fat Tuesdays and Mojito's. Walk a block to your right and your at the Clevelander and a block the other direction is Wet Willies. Even though you are in the heart of south beach you can walk past the apt and not even notice the door. So you get the best of both worlds privacy and a central location. Most hotels in a block radius of this place charge about triple the price of a night at 918 Ocean. These same hotels rooms probably aren't half as nice either. The staff was very responsive. If you have a problem just call and someone will arrive to help in no time.The doors are keyless entry so you don't have to worry about losing keys. All in all this is the best place to go if you want to stay on South Beach.Everything about this place is a +++ ! Read more
Thank you so much for such an amazing review. I know you completed it twice on both the rental site and flipkey and we are not only honored but also in debt! please return and book with us again, it was a pleasure.

Upon arrival I was a little skeptic, only because I didn't know the entrance was down the alley next to Fat Tuesdays. Once I made my way I felt more at ease. The building was very clean so that was plus. We arrived at our condo and it was exactly how the pictures looked. I was sooo happy and once again relieved. There were a few minor issues but once I contacted the owner she made sure the issue was fixed asap. I would definitely stay at this location again. Everything was in walking distance. The beach was right across the street which was a plus. I had no complaints. The only thing I would say is the condo needs is a full length mirror. We had to use the mirror in the hallway to see our entire looks. Also the door isnt sound proof so you could hear Everything that went on. It didn't bother me much because it was expected, afterall it was spring break. Other than that it was all good. Very Comfortable and Homely. I met some great people in passing. For those drunk late nights you'll appreciate the close distance. I didn't want to leave lol. Great place and Professional owner. Read more
Thank you so much for such a great review! it was so positive and bright that i almost felt a sense of the experience you shared, seems that you had a great time! and we are very glad about this indeed. Ocean Dr is gorgeous by day and magical at night indeed. I will definitely take a cue on the mirror, very good pointer and we will make it happen. Please come back!
Little is right.

This is a great location but it is small any more then two people you'd better be great friends. Our very minor problems were taken care of promptly and courteously. Location is everything and this one is great especially if you love the beach and night life. Read more
Thank you Michael for your review. Nonetheless we wanted to make a few comments to insure our continued quality of service. As for the size, perhaps you were looking for something a bit larger, but we do list our sq ft. and clearly annotate that you'd be renting a fully equipped Studio with full kitchen and bath despite size offered. Moreover, we were a bit preoccupied with cleanliness rating. If there were any issues that you encoutered by all means please email us so that we are aware for future rentals. We contract the services of a reputable cleaning company and upon your arrival our studio must be impecable. If your experience was any less than perfect on cleanliness we have reason for concern. We clearly recall upon your check in, receiving a message from you stating that everything was in perfect condition. Your input is sincerely appreciated so that we may always strive for the 5 stars service we seek and work for on a daily basis. Thank you! Management.

Our stay at the apartment was a very pleasant experience. The location is perfect, right in the middle of the bustling ocean drive. The apartment is newly renovated with all necessary amenities, and all new appliances. The only negative we had was the tv not working, and although we called to report this our message was not returned which was a downer as service during the booking process was very good. This however did not take away any from our experience as we spent little time indoors.
The apartment is located above fat tuesday, next to Mango's, but there was no
problem with noise whatsoever.
I am very picky with regard accomodation but 918 Ocean Drive met my expectations and the pictures were exactly true to the place.
Great apartment at a great price, a definate recommendation! Read more
Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We sincerely hope that you return on a future trip to Miami. Please accept our apologies on the TV mishap, we did not get your maintenance request, perhaps it did not come through. Nevertheless we strive for no less than perfect experience and hope we get an opportunity in the future to make it up to you.

Wir haben zu dritt eine Sprachschule in Miami besucht und im appartement 205 gewohnt. Es war alles sehr sauber. Die zentrale Lage zum Ocean Drive war ideal. Obwohl sich im selben Gebäude ein Partylokal befindet hat man davon nichts gehört. Die Nacht war ruhig. Die Betten waren uns eher zu hart. Die Vermieterin hat sich sehr gut um uns gesorgt. Wir hatten keinen persönlichen Kontakt mit Ihr aber sie hat uns mehrmals per Mail angefragt, ob wir etwas benötigen würden. Die Küche hatte sämtliche Uttensilien, welche man benötigt. Einziger aber nicht unbedingt negativer Punkt war, dass nicht so viel Stauraum für Koffer und Kleider vorhanden war. Ales in allem war der aufenthalt sehr, sehr gut. Read more
Vielen Dank Silvia ist Ihre Bewertung sehr wertvoll für uns. Wir haben gute Note auf Ihren Kommentar aufgenommen zu Betten, ist es ein wenig schwierig manchmal eine breite Palette von Gästen zu gefallen, da jeder hat eine persönliche Präferenz und wir haben es ein neutrales Wahl bei der Auswahl. Allerdings wäre es eine gute Idee, eine Matratze als Option und als Wahl sind, und wir werden auf jeden Fall machen dieses eine Priorität für zukünftige Mieter sein. Ich war froh, der Service während Ihres Aufenthaltes und beachten Sie uns Ihre zukünftigen Besuche auf South Florida. Glücklich zu wissen, du liebst Lage und genießen Ihren Aufenthalt in Ocean Dr.
This condo lived up to all our expectations!

We recently spent two weeks in this cozy and impecably clean condo in the heart of vibrant South Beach. Directly across from the beach and easy walking distance to shopping and to various restaurants other than those on Ocean Drive.Fully equiped with all small appliances needed,and a very comfortable bed. An excellent value for the money.
Special mention has to be made in regards to the incredibly attentive response to all our questions and requests. The attention to detail and the warm manner in which we were treated helped make our stay that much more enjoyable. Read more
Dear Kiki, thank you for such a wonderful review, We are sincerely touched and thankful and welcome you back. It was our pleasure to assist you and make your stay as memorable as possible. Please receive our best wishes!

I must first begin this review by stating that I had a wonderful experience from the beginning to the end! Sandra was absolutely excellent! She worked with my husband and I on booking this getaway, and then she was flexible enough to accommodate our sudden change in plans. We arrived to find a very cute well appointed little condo! It was updated with granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. My husband and I were there to get away, to enjoy the beach and cocktails daily. Being in this condo made all of this possible. The ocean was right across the street, and we were in the Fat Tuesday building, so cocktails were a mere one floor elevator ride! The location was great. The condo is within walking distance of everything! The building was not as noisy as expected; however, there is going to be some level of noise (as you are located in the same building with Fat Tuesday). So, if you want total solitude and a more relaxed crowd, this is not the most ideal place. If you are looking to skip the rental car and just have a blast taking in all of South Beach this is certainly the condo to rent. Reasonably priced, and the leasing agent is great to work with. We have found our new rental address for all of our SoBe vacations! I did forget to mention one negative...the outlet in the bathroom did not work, so I had to try and do my hair with my little compact mirror in the kitchen. Read more
Thank you so much for such a positive and honest review, just like it is! You were a pleasure to work with Wanda. Wish I had known about the switch though, would have sent you our tech, I am sorry about that little mishap. This studio was fully remodeled and we are working the little things as they come and thankfully so far it has been minor. Glad you found your home away from home when vacationing in SB and sincerely hoping to have you back. Best wishes! Sandra.

We had a wonderful stay here. You do not get a view but to the side of Mango's but location makes up for it. You are in the heart of the action, walking distance to the park and beach. Sandra was easy to work with as she responds quickly to e-mails. We had an issue with the hot water and was resolved within a matter of hours from our intial e-mail. The studio is modern and cute. The kitchen was great to have as we could save by cooking our own meals. Overall, we had a great time and stay. Glad we found this place. Read more
Dear Nanci, you were sincerely a pleasure to work with. Thank you for such an excellent and honest review. You are most welcome to stay with us on a future trip. South Beach is a beautiful area indeed and Ocean DR is in the center of it all. What a wonderful fusion of relaxation and entertainment all in one place right? Happy that our studio brought your entire experience full circle.

If you're looking to party and have the time of your life, this apt is the answer! In the middle of all the Ocean Dr. night life, the location for a SoBe vacation can't get any better. A number of restaurants are steps away and most importantly the beach is right across the street. This apt is very convenient and you can never miss a beat with a club right under. It looks great inside, everything is modern and fully equipped. I highly reccommend staying at 918 Ocean Dr. Read more
