Girls Trip!Hotel vs Vacation Rental...Miami vets HELP PLEASE

I am planning a girls trip to Miami for my 30 something birthday in Aug. There will be a total of 7 girls and our main goal is to PARTY!!! ...and of course the beach. I am going back and forth between hotel rooms, or a vacation rental..leaning more toward a vacation rental so we can all be together. We will be staying 3 nights, and each girl would like to spend no more than $250 on accommodations. That makes my total budget $1750 for 3 nights, or about $580/ night. All of the houses that would fit our needs in Miami are out of our budget...but I did see a few that we may be able to swing outside of the Miami beach area. So my questions is, what areas are close enough..(short cab drive or walk to clubs in south beach) but not so far that we'll feel like we are missing all the action..we also want to be close, (walking distance) to a beach.

Thanks in advance!

Stay in south beach if possible. Try one of these local vacation rental places (in no particular order):

I would add Home Away to those suggestions. Also, if you are a member of Groupon and

Living Social, they often send deals on South Beach hotels. Since you are coming in August, you have a better chance of getting some deals. It is the hottest time of the year and at the peak of hurricane season. Rates usually drop in the summer. Keep an eye on the Weather Channel in the weeks leading up to your trip. Check out some of the boutique hotels. Before I moved here, I stayed at this one for my 30th. It's a block from Ocean Dr, and a block from Washington. They had some suites that are basically apartments:

I was born in June, so always took advantage of summer rates before I actually moved here. Lots of people head north in the summer, and they may rent their empty condos. So follow those websites that everyone has suggested. Best of luck!

Post this in the Miami Beach forum. That's really where you need to stay for what you want and you'll get good suggestions on hotel deals and clubs to go to. Be sure to also post the exact dates that you'll be there.
