April 14, 2015

So you’ve decided to venture off to sunny Miami. Good choice. Not only does the city have fantastic weather nearly all year round, there’s also just so much to do in Miami, for any age group. Now that you’re on track for your Miami vacation, all that’s left is to find a place to stay while you’re there.

Your mind no doubt first jumps to a hotel, the traditional and inordinately expensive option. You would stay with a friend in Miami, letting you save some cash while enjoying all the comforts of home, but unfortunately you don’t know a soul in the city. But you do have another option, renting out a furnished apartment with MyStudioMiami, which has the perks of both aforementioned options with none of the negatives. See how below:

 

Luxury For Less

Finding a fairly priced hotel is a nigh impossible feat, and even if you do find one, chances are the room will be far from luxurious. At MyStudioMiami, you get a fully furnished apartment with so many services included (more on that in a bit) at a much lower cost. Partnering with local suppliers who want to give you a great price for staying at their lodgings via last minute bookings, MyStudioMiami guarantees the lowest cost available. And if you do happen to find a better price, let the MyStudioMiami team know and they’ll match the price and give you a 10% rebate.

Location, Location, Location

What you’re mainly paying for anytime you stay at a hotel is the location, as most major hotels are quite close to Miami’s major attractions. At a MyStudioMiami studio you’ll get the advantage of location, being a short walk from the beach, Lincoln Road, Espanola Way, with many right in the centre of South Beach, at a much lower cost. Plus, you’ll see the city from a citizen’s perspective, not being trapped in the “tourist bubble” that many hotels tend to create.
