Inside you'll find the master bedroom, which stretches the full length of the condo, with a free-standing tub in its bathroom. There's a separate full bathroom to serve bedroom two as well. Guests have access to The Grand's pool and jacuzzi and there's a grocery store less than a block away.

5. The residential condo with luxury hotel add-ons

This private home is right next door to one of South Beach’s most-hyped hotels, the 1 Hotel. Guests who book here gain access to the hotel’s delicious pool and other lovely outdoor areas (although make sure to read the small print re: guest card options in advance so you’re all set up). The apartment itself is a sweet little home that’s been decorated in style that’s sure to feel cool on a very hot day. We love the very slightly Hawaiian feel of the bedroom.

Rooms? One. Sleeps four guests.
The privacy of a home with the luxuries of a hotel.
Location perks?
Right next door to one of the area’s nicest hotels (and it’s ultra lovely pool)
