About Gary R. Lehnhard
We are Gary and Maria Elena. I was born in Miami, Florida and my wife has lived here for many years. We love the beach, especially the South Beach area. We purchased the studio for a get away place and also enjoy renting it to people and sharing what So. Beach has to offer. I worked for the City of Miami as a computer programmer, and I am now retired. My wife retired this year (2017) from Florida Christian school where she was a teacher, then an Elementary Principal for the last 10 years. She served at the school for 36 years. We have 2 adult children and 3 grandchildren. We love and enjoy our family and our American bulldog "Sophie".
Gary R. Lehnhard purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Gary R. Lehnhard chose South Pointe
South Beach has always been a favorite area of ours. We have seen it grow and be renovated the past few years. This area is historic and holds many memories of us going there to the So. Point as a teenagers. We were very happy to be able to purchase the studio in Ocean Dr. and, not only enjoy it ourselves, but also share it with people around the world.
What makes this Condo unique
Ocean Drive is a unique Art Deco and historic area. Ocean Drive is a world famous street with many clubs, restaurant and entertainment. Also to the south of 5th street you can enjoy a more quiet tranquil beach atmosphere. You can go biking, go to the peer and walk down the water way to see the cruise ships coming or going out. Also, you can eat at Smith and Wollensky by the water way or walk down to Monty Trainers for a casual dinner by the bay and watch the beautiful sunsets and yachts.

We had a great time staying at the condo. Location was nice. Only draw back would be parking is not the handiest....
Probably would book again someday.
Thank you for your review. We enjoyed meeting you and we are glad you had a nice time . Hope you can visit again. Maria & Gary
This was our second stay and once again everything was perfect.
Thank you for your review. As always it was a pleasure having you visit our studio again. Hope you visit another time. Happy Thanksgiving.
Small, smart, sensible!
If you're looking for luxury, walk away because this is not for you. The apartment is small...think hotel room with a little extra. It's not ideal for "hanging in". The place is super cute and the utilization of space is smart. The bed is hard but comfortable. Hint for those of you that hate the middle crack...fold the duvet several times and lay it between the crack for added comfort.
There is a distinct smell but its par the course when living by the ocean and it is an older building. We were able to find some incense in a drawer and that helped quite a bit.
The linens are a plenty, the pool we cannot comment on as we did not utilize. The beach is a stones throw away and having use of the beach chairs and umbrella was a bonus!
The location of the place is convenient for those that love the beach and like to be within walking distance to the action and plenty of restaurants. We did not have a car and we did not feel the need for one. The boardwalk allowed us to get pretty far in our own two feet and the fact that there are bike rentals every few hundred feet helped too.
We only stayed 2 nights and overall, we would stay again. Thank you Gary and Maria for your hospitality.
Marlene, Thank you for your detailed review. To rent a luxury apt. in Ocean Drive you would have to pay over $300 a night. We enjoy renting our studio and sharing the beautiful beach and experience at Ocean Drive with our guest for a very reasonable fee. We are so glad you had a nice stay and hope you visit us again.

Unbeatable location, great hosts
We enjoyed our stay at Gary’s place. It had everything we needed. Location is amazing! The building is older and smells a bit and the apartment is smaller that the pics might suggest. Overall - very good experience at very reasonable price. I would recommend to a friend.
Nadia, thank you for your review. It was a pleasure meeting you both. We are so glad you had a nice stay!

Maria Elena y Gary
Very Nice apartment.
Melvin, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you can visit us again. Gary and Maria
Ocean Drive is a world famous street. We are on the south point, the quiet areas, however you can find all the restaurants, attractions, clubs, and all the excitement within a couple of blocks to the north.
You can also walk to the south pier and watch the cruise ships go by and relax on the South Point Park. You can then dine on the restaurants by the water way. We personally like to walk to Smith and Wollensky restaurant from the beach or walk to Monty's at the marina.
Perfect location to relax or party!!
