Overview

Fort Lauderdale House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, private pool, on our lake in Fort Lauderdale, sleeps 5

This great vacation house is situated on a private lake in Fort Lauderdale, there are houses next door to it, but the view out the back is unrestricted with no other houses or fences. The house is in a residential neighborhood, but other houses are not permitted to use the lake. It is a totally unique location in South Florida. You may fish at the lake. The house is fully furnished, just arrive with your suitcase for a great vacation, everything else is provided. 10 mins from Fort Lauderdale Airport, 10-15 mins from the beach, 5 mins from Las Olas and downtown. Its the perfect spot to enjoy South Florida. If you wish, you have the added bonus of reserving water ski lessons. We run a water-ski school on the lake (well away from the house) but you can see the skiers out on the water from your home as you eat your breakfast or laze by the pool.

The address to the property is 4524 SW 24th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33317.

Imagine a place where nearly any activity is available and is served up with sunshine. Fort Lauderdale, is a world class destination. From luxury mega yachts to high performance speedboats, stretch limousines, sport cars and the finest resorts to multi million estates, South Florida has the beauty and adventure that truly belongs in the movies.

Looking for a relaxing lunch? with some 3,000 restaurants you can dine on a distinct cusine at every meal. If the beach is calling, you will easily find a spot with more than 23 miles of sand and surf and the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. If diving is more your forte you will find 73 artificial reefs, greater Fort Lauderdale is the wreck dive site capital of the United States.

There are over 12 shopping malls and over 1,000 speciality retail shops. You can find everything you want from the finest merchandise to the bargains of the flea markets.

If it is culture you seek, you will be surprised at the array of museums and galleries displaying fine art. Performing art venues offer wonderful performances of all kinds from ballet to rock bands.

South Florida is a beautiful area, you will see many kinds of wildlife from parrots flying through the skies to alligators in the Everglades to the turtles laying their eggs on the beach, you will be in awe of the spectacular wildlife in our area.

You will be amazed and enchanted by our beautiful city, there is something here for everyone!

History of the Lake

The McGinnis Family purchased the lake in 1975, back then the area was considered quite far west, over the years we have become more central with the growth of Fort Lauderdale.

The lake is 50 acres and approximately 30 feet deep, it is filled with freshwater springs. The original landowners bought the land to dig rock and sand from the area and sold the fill to builders who used it to build the Turnpike. It was dug so deep that they dug into the Biscayne Aquifer and that is how the lake was formed. We have freshwater Bass, Brim, Carp and Oscar fish in the lake. There are Ospreys nesting in the Pine Trees, a bald Eagle and many marine birds who live here. You will also see Iguanas. The water temperature in the winter months is on average 72 degrees Fahrenheit , in the peak summer months its up to 92 degrees Fahrenheit.

We have run a water ski school at the lake for 30 years. People from all over the world and the United States come to water ski with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ann,

We wanted to send you a note to let you know how wonderful we thought your home was. We enjoyed our stay more than you can imagine. The house is set up perfectly for anyone's needs. Very nicely decorated, extremely clean, and well equipped. The pool and hot tub after a busy day of sight-seeing was a dream. Loved the wildlife, all the beautiful birds and the very timid iguana. We would love to come back again. We would definitely recommend your home to anyone.

Thanks again.

the house where sweet dreams drift by

  • 5 of 5
“The house where sweet dreams
drift by…..”
This “ Gem “ of a house is really beautifully furnished, kitchen , bathrooms equipment etc .perfect and clean, as all the rest, for that matter, most comfortable beds out of which one never wishes to get out until the brain wakes up to its senses telling you to rush and get up so to open all the many windows and doors and allow the sun , the light and all the glitters coming from the lake to get in and dance playfully in the soft-multicolored rooms…….then you step out into a wonderland of natural beauties: ( apart from another flash of blue water reflected by the swimming pool) a slither of green grass and…a wonderful lake , a festive playground for native inhabitants : birds (ibis, herons,cranes, crows, doves , green parroquets , ….) shy iguanas…. Area : very quiet , nice neighbours. Location : perfect, you’ll find yourselves pampered and nestled in a crystal bubble ..Skischool: excellent , just check the owner 's performances and her husband 's credentials, not only as a “ boat “ pilot…..I,we, could go on and on…….with complimenting …..Owners: : the nicest, most adorable, discreet , helpful , people in the world . if you think we are exaggerating it….give it a try! You won’t regret it….Finally, on a more personal note, the house on the lake was, is, will always hold a special place in our hearts and keep the sweetest memories….Forever.

Stays beautiful, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
My wife my daughter and I spent unforgettable holiday in this house for two weeks. All was great. the quality of the house, cleanliness and Ann is very very nice, helpful etc. We hope to return soon. But this time there longer. The Jacuzzi was at the top, the pool just a little cold. We loved our stay. I recommend this house. On the highway we understand it but it's not at all disturbing. Sorry for my poor English. Best rgards, Michael

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, my 90 year old mother, and I stayed five days. The house is exactly as described - and more. The pool was sparkling clean, as was the hot tub. The house is immaculate and comfortable. Everything needed was provided, which made for a relaxing, stress-free holiday. We know that Ft. Lauderdale has lots to offer, but we pretty much stayed close to the property for our vacation. We'll be back. Thank you.

LOVELY HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for 5 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The house had everything we needed. Having the sun umbrellas was a bonus too as they were needed in the heat on the beaches.

The pool and hot tub were an added bonus and used a lot and having the lake just at the bottom of the garden was lovely.

It is a shame about the interstate the other side of the lake but it didn't bother us as it is far enough away not to be intrusive.

Thank you to Ann for letting us stay. We hope to stay again sometime in the future.

December Getaway

  • 4 of 5
Hi JP and Ann,
Thanks again for having us in your relaxing, quiet home. We really enjoyed watching the water skiiers by the pool. Your house met our needs nicely, expecially the very comfortable beds. We enjoyed chatting with Jim and eating the delicious star fruit and tangerines he gave us. It's too bad the pool isn't heated, but we did use the hot tub regularly. We hated to leave and return to snow. Ohio Couples

Owner's Response: Thank you Lynn, we are so happy you had a great vacation and enjoyed the house. We would like to get the pool heated for next winter, we think it would be a nice addition. However the hot tub is a fun feature. We hope to meet you again.
