Miami is easily Florida’s hottest destination. The party scene, the food, the luxury hotels, the beautiful beaches right at the tip of the state, with their Caribbean waters? It’s really hard to beat. However, the prices for an average guest room in this city can be staggering. That’s why some travelers opt for a condo rental when visiting Miami instead.

But where can you find the best vacation condo rentals in Miami? We’ve pulled together some of the best resources for booking cheap condo rentals in the Magic City.

HomeAway offers more than 300 vacation condo rentals in the Miami area. Keep in mind that Miami is a huge city, though, so these condo rentals are pretty spread out, from Palmetto Bay to Aventura. Many, though, are in downtown Miami, so you’ll have no lack of options there. The rentals really range in prices, from cheap condo rentals that are part of a smaller, more budget-friendly resort, to luxury condo rentals that are situated in big high-rise buildings with views of the ocean. Which you pick all depends on your travel budget and needs. Many allow pets, some allow smoking and you can search through your options via a wide arrange of filters. You can even apply filters to your search for elements like “luxury” and “family-friendliness.”

While many HomeAway vacation condo rentals do require that you request your stay dates ahead of your stay, for the condo owner to approve or deny, you can search for “Instant Book” options on the site, which you may find more convenient. This guarantees you get the cheap condo rental you want, without the worry of a denied stay request.


Book at Luxury Rentals Miami Beach

If it’s specifically luxury for a good price that you’re after, and you definitely want to stay in the typically high-priced areas of Miami Beach and South Beach, then Luxury Rentals Miami Beach is exactly where you want to look.

Search for vacation condos by number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, price per night (from $100 to $5,000) or a specific location. You’ll receive gorgeous photos of beachfront condos to sort through, with information on where they’re located, how many guests they can fit and the price range per night. There are many condos available at well known luxury hotels in Miami, including The Setai, W South Beach and Conrad Brickell.


Book at Booking.com

Booking.com allows you to search for condos in either Miami or Miami Beach, giving you the ability to look for cheap condo rentals across either a broad or narrow geographic area. After picking your check-in and check-out dates, you can sort your available options via price, reviews and star ratings, or choose to only view properties that offer certain amenities, like free parking or beachfront access.

Do note, however, that booking.com also shows you available stays at resorts and hotels. If you specifically are looking for vacation condo rentals in the Miami area, then you’ll want to indicate “apartments” and “vacation homes” when you’re filtering through your search results. Given this, you can find just under 200 options in Miami Beach. Still, keep a close look on your options before booking something, as booking.com’s search tool isn’t foolproof when it comes to just showing you vacation condo rentals that come with the typically associated amenities like on-site dining and activities.
