The buyer of a $9 million condo that sold last week in South Beach is the CEO of Kayak Software Corp., which operates the travel site Kayak.com.

Daniel Stephen Hafner, who co-founded Kayak in 2004 and helped found Orbitz in 1999, was named on the deed for unit 302 at Ocean House. The South-of-Fifth condo was originally purchased pre-construction by a Brazilian for $4.3 million, before she remodeled it and put it back on the market.

The unit has five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, an ocean view and a private elevator. The seller was represented by Brenda Bichili of Cervera Real Estate. Hafner was represented by Daniela Bonetti from ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.

Hafner closed on the residence Wednesday, and took out a $6.2 million mortgage with Bank of America, according to Miami-Dade County property records.

Stamford, Connecticut-based Kayak was acquired by competing travel website Priceline in 2013 in a deal valued at $1.8 billion, Forbes reported.
