With views to the Miami River, Downtown Miami, and the Biscayne Bay, this one-bedroom condo (which includes a queen-size sofa bed in the living room) is uncommonly well equipped, including its kitchen and large walk-in closet, refined furniture and complements, high-quality linen and towels, two HD Smart LED TV (watch 100+ channels including HBO and Showtime as well as Netflix, Prime, Hulu...), really fast and free Wi-Fi (100Mb), full-size washer/dryer, Italian cabinets, premium appliances by Wolf & Subzero and Bosch, as well as solid marble counters. Design and cleanliness are of the utmost importance to us.
We also rent other properties: studios, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom condos in Brickell and Coconut Grove, all the luxe and well maintained.
The luxurious Icon Brickell resort in Miami was designed by Philippe Starck, with dramatic views on Biscayne Bay and featuring a magnificent SPA, fitness center, wet and dry saunas. It is surrounded by the Miami Circle National Historic Landmark, a small park, and the Miami River.
Referred to as the Manhattan of the South, Brickell is home to the largest concentration of international banks in the United States, and home to many of Miami's top restaurants, shops, and places of entertainment.
The Mary Brickell Village, Bayfront Park, and Mall, the A. A. Arena, and the new PAMM museum are all within walking distance. A short drive away you can find the Wynwood Art District, Miami Beach, -traditionally acclaimed for its Art Deco’s historic district, nightlife, shops, galleries, restaurants, and sidewalk cafes-, Key Biscayne, Coconut Grove, Seaquarium, the Zoo, Coral Castle, Jungle Island, and a number of museums.
For SUPERMARKET: Whole Foods is nearby. No need to drive. Cross the bridge and two more blocks to go.
For RESTAURANTS, see our Guest Book, which you will receive in digital after booking (on paper upon arrival). In any case, walk to Mary Brickell Village for dinner, have a drink, see people.
For fancy indoor SHOPPING: walk to the new Brickell City Centre for prime retail and fine dining (for a complete list, visit the website).
For OUTDOOR shopping, eating and tourist shops, the Bayside Marketplace, by the water.
For PERFORMING ARTS: check the Arsht Center's upcoming events. For other events, the American Airlines Arena.
For RUNNING OR WALKING: see our Guest Book. In any case, if you come to Brickell, walk or run around Brickell Key. No cars or bicycles allowed. Just a gorgeous and healthy walk or run.
For MUSEUMS: the new PAMM, Modern Art, and its environment is worthwhile. Very soon the Frost Museum of Science will open doors (1S 2017). Unmissable. Both within walking distance. Or take the free Metromover.
Not walking distance:
For ART, go to Wynwood. Take pictures of the over 200 urban graffiti (perhaps take an Art Walk Tour before). Continue to the Design District for high-end shopping and galleries.
For BEACHES: South Beach (more urban) or Crandon Park in Key Biscayne (more isolated). That key is a tranquil one and so close to town. The drive is gorgeous. Go to the end of the island, to No Name Harbor to see the yachts.
For ART DECO, go to Ocean Drive, at Miami Beach. You will have seen it in so many movies! Once there, go to Lincoln Road, a pedestrian street with tourist shops and non-expensive restaurants.
For a LONG DRIVE, go to Key West. We recommend that you spend one night there to avoid a very long drive. Avoid Fridays in your way down or Sundays to come back.
To finalize, a paragraph from Wikipedia:
“Downtown Miami is home to the largest concentration of international banks in the United States, and many large national and international companies. The Civic Center is a major center for hospitals, research institutes, medical centers, and biotechnology industries. For more than two decades, the Port of Miami, known as the "Cruise Capital of the World", has been the number one cruise passenger port in the world. It accommodates some of the world's largest cruise ships and operations, and is the busiest port in both passenger traffic and cruise lines.”
