Default Very Special Boat Show Lodging

I am flying down to the Miami Show tomorrow afternoon. I have two brothers coming in from Ireland tomorrow and we will all be staying until Sunday. I considered hotels but really wanted to do the condo thing so we could spread out and relax together.

So I started looking around, googling condos etc.

Then I thought about Craigslist. I discovered that that is the place for privately owned South Beach condos for rent.

Then one post caught my eye.

Captain Michael Burke, founder of Windjammer Cruises, owns a mansion on Biscayne Bay up in North Beach - due west of 41st street where the big boats dock. He has been using it less and less and at one time thought about selling fractional ownership. He recently has been suffering from bad health so rarely uses the house.

There is a guesthouse on the grounds. And it was finally decided to begin using this to generate some revenue. It was rented out for the first time ever during the Superbowl last week. The second time it will be rented out will be... to us for the Boat show.

Have a look:





And some video:

Pics when I get back.

Your boat would look nice moored at that dock

From what I've been told that space may already have been taken - and pretty much all of it.
