Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to find the townhouse was exactly as advertised. It was perfect for our family's needs and was well equipped. The location was ideal for walking to the beach, restaurants and shops. Communication with the property manager was quick and easy with all questions answered in a timely manner. We were a bit nervous booking and paying for everything on line, but everything went off without a catch. We would definitely go back!

Thank you Sabrina!

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We came down to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea for my son's spring break, and this place was perfect for us! The house was very clean and spacious, and in a fabulous location. We could easily walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, and the playground, but the house is on a quiet street and we didn't have any problems with noise at night. The pool was our favorite feature of the house, and was just the right size for our family (2 adults, a 6 year old, and a 1.5 year old). I would definitely recommend this property, and we hope to come back one day!

Delightful 3 week stay

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 3 week stay. The unit was very spacious and nicely cleaned upon our arrival. As you recall, we had a couple of issues with the A/C & oven which required repairs, but all was fixed by Monday and worked well thereafter. The location was very good with regard to beach & town access. We could walk everywhere, yet the noise from the town & traffic were minimal. In- unit laundry was a plus, as well as the quaint patio with small pool & grill in back, which we used on multiple occasions and were able to enjoy outdoor eating as the weather was terrific. A couple of items are in need of repair; the back slider lock should be fixed so the pole is not necessary to prevent access, and the sliding screen is loose at the bottom. Speed control on kitchen fan should be fixed as it only worked in high mode which was fine to circulate air quickly, but it would have been nice to leave it on the low setting like the other ceiling fans. Sofa sectional in family area could use a cleaning. All in all, a great stay. Thank you Sabrina for promptly attending to the repairs.

Great location-nice home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had not been to Lauderdale by the sea for many years and it was great visiting one of our favorite towns. This townhouse is in a perfect location for walking and shopping and of course eating. We loved having our own pool. The house offered everything you need for a couple or a family. Highly recommend it!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was unbelievable , anything we needed was there, even items we didn't think about, until we needed them. Centrally located to restaurants, pubs, and the Beach all within a short walking distance. Everything that the rental agent sent to us about the property was accurate. The property was Very Clean and well maintained. I would Definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

Loved Mulligan's Restaurant (all wait service was so Friendly- See Fernando).

The Aruba was equally Great- ( Margit is a great bartender). Great Time, Great Food, Great Place..

Poor management

  • 1 of 5

First of all I have to say that we loved Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. When we first rented this townhouse it was apparently still managed by Katy. The management and ownership changed mid contract and that's when everything went sour. When we arrived we were given the wrong address and upset the poor people next door when we said we were renting . Sabrina never admitted her mistake although our contract clearly stated the other address. It was somehow our fault???? Things went downhill from there. The townhouse was anything but clean. It is advertised as New Luxury. It is not new nor is it Luxury. Buyer Beware. Sticky counter tops and dirty fridge. We had to wipe down everything before we could put anything away. Carpets were disgusting. 1 roll of toilet paper for each toilet. One beach umbrella that was broken. Sabrina thought that was just fine for 4 on the beach under one 3 foot diameter umbrella. She did replace it with one equally as bad. We ended up buying our own umbrella and chairs and gave them away to someone on the beach when we left.Coffee pot also was broken...She did replace that but everything was a fight. Never saw her...not once. We only reached her by e-mail and text and most of the time received a bounce back that she was out of the office.The pool was not usable, Very cold. She said that solar heating meant that it was heated "By the Sun" ??? Green algae was so thick when we left it was a health hazard. No one came to clean it...no one came to do anything. And beware.The contact says you will get your security deposit back within 20 days of checkout...try 2 months and threatening e-mails. The place was 100% cleaner when we left than when we arrived. Never again. Get a new manager.... And whatever you are paying for cleaning your paying too much.

Owner's Response: We are desolated you feel like you had a bad experience at Portofino TownHouse. It has been very hard for us to please you. At this property we only provide beach chairs but no beach umbrella. The one that you found there was bought by some other vacationers. We decided to buy another one for you just to please you, because you kept texting me that you wanted a bigger beach umbrella. The same day we also replaced the coffee pot like you asked, and left those items at the house while you were at the beach. The townhouse was cleaned as usual before your arrival by our expert cleaners, as well as the refrigerator. We had a check-out the same day of your arrival so we are certain of that. As far as toiletries and courtesy items we provide, they are as follows: one toilette paper per bathroom, 1 roll of paper towel, small soap in the bathroom, laundry detergent and softener, trash bags, dish soap, hands soap and one dish cloth. The pool was cleaned almost every day, due to your repeated phone calls that the pool was not clean. The pool is heated by solar panels, which do not obviously work as if they were an electrical heather. Therefore if there is a sunny day and the outside temperature is not too cold the solar panels will heat the pool , however in the night the temperature is lower, so the water in the pool will cool down again. And that what happened during your stay. Regarding the security deposit you had to wait a bit longer than usual only because the owner was out of the country. Finally you received it after one month instead of 20 days. As an information for other vacationers, the new owner doesn't require a security deposit; we invite you all to trust that there is always another side to the coin, and that anger brings people to write things that are perhaps not true.
