Our Mom was turning 79 and the siblings decided to do something special. We all had different ideas but our themes were consistent: nature, family time and good food and drinks. We decided on Las Olas Intracoastal Vacation Estate. We had a wonderful week together. The great room and kitchen is awesome for gathering and cooking. The yard and pool area are lovely. In the living room we set up a 1000 piece jigzaw puzzle on the large rustic coffee table. The dining room was perfect for gourmet dinners and good games of Rook. The kitchen is a wonderful gathering place if you are a family of cooks, which we are. Lots of room to work and visit. There is also a great BBQ outside with great waterview. If you are looking for a spacious but intimate place to gather with friends or family, this is the place. Oh, and my Mom said "this was my best birthday ever" and she was sincere. This was our first time using VRBO and it won't be our last!
