- Want to be in a SAFE & NICE area

- 22 & Single so I'd like to meet people & date. (I'm not into the clubbing scene)

- Want to be in a LIVELY & ACTIVE area. Go outside, walk to get food/groceries, see lots of people everywhere, etc

- Young Professional so I want to be around like minded people who have something going for them. Don't want to be surrounded by the drunk party crowd.

- 1BED/1BATH under $1,500/month range in a nice quality building/area.

Please Advise

PS: Somewhere in Miami sounds good but anywhere around it is fine as well. Moving to Florida with the 5 metrics above is the goal.

PPS: I hate pets. Sad but true. Allergies. A building that isn't pet friendly is a BIG PLUS!

Most buildings worth living in have pets. I want to say Brickell but that price is not possible. First thing you have to be able to take a studio loft type place at that price range. You want find a true 1 bedroom separated from the living area at $1300. For the rest of your criteria you will want to look at the midtown Miami development, Brickell (probably put of price range) downtown and Miami beach south of 24th street. I think for that price Miami Beach may be your best bet for a small studio in a smaller no frills building. Hopefully you can find something downtown though, I think that is your best bet.

Thanks for your reply.

Do you have any building recommendations in those areas where I can begin my search? I honestly don't know where to begin since I've never been to Miami. If you can name a few buildings in those areas I can probably take it from there.

I would try the Sunny Isles area. I currently live and work there. Apartment is with in walking distance to grocery store, liquor store, cvs, Marshall's, food, etc. short drive to Walmart and mall. Many family's along with younger couples. Parks, beach access, very safe. Being a mid 20s female I never feel unsafe walking around after dark. Still a lot of tourists but the less rowdy type, opposite of south beach.

Thanks for your reply.

I currently don't live in Florida or anywhere close to it. Is there any furnished place I can live at for 30 days or so at a reasonable rate? This will help me explore the city, see all the buildings, and make a clear decision that makes sense.

I'm thinking under $1,500. Obviously has to be safe/clean. Just need it to be furnished and available for 30 days so I can explore, check out the city, and make a final decision. If you know of any, please please please let me know

You can get a corporate rental at Opera Tower (Midtown,) the Club at Brickell Bay (Brickell) or Fortune House (also Brickell)

Prices I'm not sure about but in the summer you'll hopefully get a better rate.

You're making a wise decision to explore first.

You can get into Brickell at $1500 a month, but it will take some searching and negotiating. You might be better off to start looking at the older buildings like Four Ambassadors which has a central location, is in Brickell, but is an older complex.

Try this site for a good listing of *most* buildings:

If looking in the Sunny Isles area you could try Intercoastal Yahat Club. I'm pretty sure they do short term, furnished units. I know reviews online aren't that great from residents, but for only one month I'm sure it won't be that bad. I live right down the street from there and from the outside the place looks nice and well kept. Sorry for my delay in response.
