... t finish a day in a Disney theme park without a spectacular light and fireworks display.
There was so much to do in Florida we barely scratched the surface at any of the places we visited. We were certainly glad to be back in an English speaking country and not worrying about the food or the drinking water. Everywhere we went the people were exceptionally friendly. But there's more of the U.S.A to explore so we're off to Chicago!
... by 7.45am and we were off to the airport. We were really concerned about our weight bringing some of the heavy wooden items home that we were given. We didn't want to look ungrateful or disrespectful by leaving them in our apartment so we decided to see if there was anyone at the airport selling things that we could give them to. There wasn't so I just went up to a young girl who was sweeping and explained ...
... myself to do it.
In the afternoon we bussed it into Downtown and saw the Freedom Tower - which is similar to Ellis Island in New York in that it was the place which processed Cuban immigrants into Florida. It was then into Bayside markets, Paul is convinced we walked through a scene from the opening title sequence of Burn Notice - not saying much really as he thinks ...
... under the baking sun. Now we have silly touristy straw hats. It will be a miracle if they survive the next couple of months.
We saw Flipper the dolphin, his troop and five slim blonde women. The highlight of the dolphin show though, was a naughty crane which waited patiently at the side of the pool until the show started. As soon as blonde woman No. 3 left the fish bucket unguarded, it crept over and filled itself with fish after fish. It barely managed to take ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SoBeYou Bed & Breakfast Miami Beach
SoBe You is the perfect B & B. Tropical setting on a quiet residential street. Sparkling clean and comfortable rooms. Sumptuous beds with wonderfully fresh-smelling bed linens and towels. Exquisite breakfasts -many organic ingredients - served from 9 to 10:30 - with hot, fresh, aromatic coffee and numerous teas also available earlier. Best of all the owners are exceptionally accommodating and friendly and are knowledgeable on a vast array of subjects as well as the local happenings. A pleasing variety of music accompanies the meal and may be enjoyed later while taking a dip in the pool or relaxing in the poolside tropical setting. There are beautifully furnished rooms available in the house or across the pool in one of the separate units. I love the nearby park - one block away. It has well kept pools including a lap pool and children's pool, gated playground, tennis and basketball courts, plenty of benches and a great walking corridor to multiple destinations. The B & B was refurbished and re-opened by the new current owners in late 2005. I visited in February for a week and returned there three more times this year, 2006.
SoBeYou was the perfect place to relax and unwind at the end of a week long business trip.
We have just returned from a weekend at SoBeYou.
Sobeyou was great!
Sobeyou was a great experience. A quiet layed back affordable b&b.
We walked the easy 5-6 blocks to the beach. On street parking was easy with passes given to guests. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable and luxurious. Breakfasts were creative and tasty. 9 AM coffee could have been earlier but Starbucks is nearby. The pool/spa is really not swimeable but is pleasant to cool off in and sit around. The hostesses are friendly and aim to please. A hidden away oasis. We would return in a minute!
Early November we stayed at the SoBeYou B&B for 6 nights and had a wonderful stay. We were looking for a small hotel "close to everything and away from it all" and this is exactly what SoBeYou B&B represents.
I followed the link [--] website and requested my reservation dates and room type in Aug. 2006. I received a prompt email reply from an employee of So Be You Bed & Breakfast Inn, South Beach, FL. with a request to contact her by phone to discuss my room options. She was very helpful and friendly and recommended a room with a higher price than I had originally requested, but after talking with her I agreed that it would better suit my needs. She informed me that the price is normally $225 per night but, since she recommended the upgrade and since our stay was so many months away, (Feb 16-20, 2007), that she wanted to extend a rate of $190 per night. I agreed and she emailed me a confirmation. I recently received a less than pleasant voicemail on Nov. 14 from So Be You, informing me that the rate is $225 a night for the room I booked, that the rate I was given was a mistake and that I could basically take it or leave it. I returned the voicemail and followed with quite a few emails pleading my case of the written and verbal confirmations that I had received from her staff. Long story short, she was rude, unapologetic and unbending on the price.(we are only talking $140 total difference in price for the entire stay). One price was offered directly from the B & B reservations staff and now So Be You Bed & Breakfast is refusing to honor the given rate of $190 per night even though I have the printed emailed confirmation on an official So Be You Bed & Breakfast confirmation form. I would not recommend this B & B to anyone. I suggest staying at Indian Creek Hotel instead. Great service and a quiet location. Even if you do not stay at Indian Creek the restaurant is well worth the visit.
Sobeyou's management called us after we had booked several months ago and claimed that the rate that they had offered to us AND sent written confirmation for was incorrect and therefore, we could take the room at their published internet rate, or, basically, too bad....Their customer service was atrocious in this instance--THEY offfered a subtle discount when we phoned to reserve--we didn't ask for it. In fact, we had asked for more basic accommodation, but the Reservations agent suggested we take the upgrade, which she would be happy to offer at a slight discount.
The Sobeyou is a beautiful guesthouse in a superb central location on Jefferson Ave. The rooms are clean, bright and airy and face a lovely pool/deck area. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming and really took the time to make me feel at home - Peanut the dog is great too! This guesthouse is a welcome change from faceless chain hotels and I highly recommend it. I'll certainly stay there on my next trip to Miami, and the rates are very reasonable too.
Exellent place to stay!
My husband and I recently stayed at SoBe You Bed and Breakfast. This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast and it certainly didn't disappoint us!! The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are spotless. This was one time where the website was not an exaggeration. The owner is very welcoming. The breakfasts are very gourmet, healthy and perfectly served. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. We were never disturbed by surrounding guests. The pool/jacuzzi was very inviting. I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the South Beach area. You won't be disappointed.
