Casa Calmare has two full baths and two bedrooms (each with queen-size beds), plus a queen-size sleep sofa in the living room.
The master bedroom suite and living room each include an armoire that contains both TV and DVD player. The living room is also equipped with a stereo, a Bose surround sound speaker system (great for movie watching), an iPod connection and a 100-disc CD player.

J. Andrew Keller purchased this house in 2004
We love how the neighborhood is so centrally located. Everything in Fort Lauderdale is within a 15-minute drive, it seems. Wilton Manors is a 5-minute drive away. Dozens of shops and restaurants are a 5-block walk away. We are addicted to Zona Fresca, a taco shop that is amazing and at the end of the street. There's always some ingredient we missed at the supermarket, so I'm always being sent down to Fresh Market at the end of the street - happily this is an easy walk. We rent the house as much as we can, but we also use it ourselves as often as we can make it work. It's relaxing and wonderful.
We purchased this property because it's, quite simply, special. The neighborhood is walkable and full of warm people, but when we're in the house, it's like you're in your own private resort. The public spaces all focus on the back yard, and the entire back of the house is windows. Happily, this also faces north, so we get a fabulous view to the back yard without ever dealing with glare from the sun. The two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, which is a wonderful extra level of privacy when we've invited another couple to join us on vacation.Finally, because we use the house ourselves, we like to make sure everything's there that we would possibly want when we're down there, so you get to benefit from our making sure the house is good enough for us!
We have just completed renovation (2014, spring) of both bathrooms, so please take a look at the photos. I tried to use the 'Panorama' feature on my phone, so some of the edges look weird, so please know that's my phone, not the actual edge of the counter doing that!!
The property was in an ideal place not to far from the airport nice and quiet in a residential area safeand located not far from the beach the property was clean and the pool was well managed as was the garden.restaurants just a short drive away as was the nearest mall/i would recomend this property to anyone i have 3 fussy kids and they loved it.it is not a property you would want if you are visting theme parks .disney etc there is a water park 1 hr away
This is a very lovely home. We were blown away when we arrived. The home is so well maintained and fully equipped. Gorgeous windows in the living room facing the backyard give you the feeling of being outdoors. The back yard is completely private and so well groomed we didn't want to leave as it really felt like a home away from home. Heated pool too! Lots of nice restaurants are within walking distance. Very nice area. And both the owner and property manager were very accommodating. They've even installed a new keyless entry system and a smart climate control system. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning first chance we get! Highly recommend Casa Calmare!
We have two children ages 10 and 12. We planned a road trip from Atlanta, Georgia for Spring Break 2013.
This home is fabulous! It's on a quiet street, with a nice cozy entrance and open garage. The home has a spacious living room with all the amenities you can think of. Lights are all over the place, nice LCD TV (with HDMI inputs for those who are techies like me!), sound system (ipod/iphone connection), ceiling fans, Wifi, in home.
Rooms are very well furnished all over and there is more than enough towels to handle all the pool activities and trips to the ocean. Both bathrooms also have bath soaps and hand soaps there.
Kitchen Warning! :) You do NOT need to bring anything from your home or need to purchase any utensils locally to begin cooking. EVERYTHING possible is there from a coffee maker, to blender, to oven pans, utensils, plates galore, pots and pans. Including little stuff like lighters for the clean grill, paper towels, trash bags, hand soap, dishwashing soap, cleaners etc. Fully stocked and that made our lives very easy because we had everything there. All you do is unpack and you're home!
One of the kitchen cabinets even had a good stock of little stuff like salt, sugar, coffee filters some spices etc. Again a small bonus but appreciated.
Highly recommended and the owner is very quick to get in touch if there is a question or a problem.
We could not have asked for more in a holiday accommodation. The house was perfect - great furnishings, beautifully equipped kitchen, great audio/video equipment, and even the wi-fi signal was strong. The best feature was the back yard - beautifully landscaped and so private and comfortable and the pool was great.
The location is also perfect. A short walk from Whole Foods, retail and restaurants. The beach wasn't far either (by car).
We would most definitely book this property again and would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in Fort Lauderdale.
My husband and I stayed at Casa Calmare for his 50th birthday. We chose March 3rd to the 11th 2013. The home was everything that we read about and expected. The home is furnished nicely,it was clean, comfortable, and we did not want for anything. The back yard was better than we expected. There is such detail in the landscaping with it's mature palm trees and shrubury that made us feel like we were at a five star resort. The neighborhood was quiet and close to restaraunts, grocery store, and movie theater. We had a relaxing vacation and we recomend that anyone who views this property on line to book it you will not be dissapointed.
The Middle River leading to the Intercoastal Waterway is just around the corner, and Fort Lauderdale's award-winning Blue Wave beaches are a short one-mile drive or bike ride from you.
You can easily walk to Starbucks, Barnes & Noble and Whole Foods, or take advantage of the extensive selection of shops and restaurants (Ruths Chris, J. Alexanders, etc.) that are just a few blocks away.
