Why I chose to live here

I chose to live in this apartment because the rent is cheap and it is near the beach, in which I like to spend my free time. Miami Beach is a WONDERFUL place to live since the weather is nice all year round and it is a really popular spring and summer vacation resort city. I thought it would be a good idea to live where I have always dreamed of going since childhood.


This apartment's rent is estimated at about $1,750 per month.
