We had the greatest time at this house. It is situated in the most perfect location, it"s like a little piece of paradise, and the greatest thing is that it is right in Fort Lauderdale. Joyce McGinnis welcomed us into the house and it met all out expectations. The lake and property was so nice, we hardly wanted to leave to go to the beach. The price was great too. We have been staying in rentals for years and this place tops our list. Thank you Joyce.

Fantastic

We stayed at this property during the Tortuga Festival weekend. It was above and beyond our expectations, a rare gem among the dozens of area cookie-cutter condos. The cleanliness and comfort are impeccable, and the owners are helpful and available. The guesthouse is on a private lake in a residential neighborhood, but within 30 minute drive ($30 by taxi) of all area attractions (beaches and such). The showers are modern, hot water is plentiful, and beds super comfortable. The amenities are not luxurious by any stretch, but it felt like a home away from home. We did not miss one thing. Not only would we go back, but this would be, without a doubt, our preferred destination for business or pleasure in the area. Very, very well done!

We wanted to get away from our city to work and relax. We were very lucky to find this property. The house was as advertised. Joyce and her family are very kind and helpful. The perfect hosts. We will return to this property when the next opportunity presents itself. Thanks for everything. Truly enjoyed our time there.

Great Place to Stay

The house was neat and it was as described on the website. I suggest this house for a family or a group of friends. There is a nice view of the lake in the backyard (lake butterfly). The neighbourhood is safe and there is a security gate to access the property The owner was available whenever we had questions or needed help.

Good Value

We enjoyed our time at the house. It is close to everything yet very private. There were 6 adults and we all were comfortable. We were looking for a quiet place to spend the holiday after our cruise and we suceeded in finding a nice budget friendly place. It is an older home but the kitchen is updated, and they try to keep it maintained. An example of that is the blinds in several rooms needed replacing and they had them in the garage they just didn't get them iinstalled prior to our arrival. Everything you could possibly need is in the house just bring your personal items. TV, internet, small appliances, washer dryer. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't there. Only complaint was there were a lot of ants in both the kitchen and bathroom. We know bugs are a problem in Florida so we did not keep any food laying around and sealed everything up good at night, but they still invaded. The house was clean but dusty when we arrived, so probably been a gap between rentals and wasn't freshened up before we arrived. We had a great time, Joyce and her husband were great hosts and we would not hesistate to rent from them again, if we are in the Fort Lauderdale area. The property is large and private, the fact that it is gated is very nice. We were very comfortable at six people you could do 8 which we did one night, with 2 on the sleeper. But I would not want to do a week with 8 adults. If you have kids 8 probably would not be a problem. Six allowed us to eat comfortably at the table, play games at night and watch a movie with out anyone being uncomfortable. The master suite with the bath was nice, and also had a tv in there. Overall I would recommend you really can't go wrong with the price, location and everything that is provided, We were very happy. Thank you Joyce.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jennifer, It was a pleasure having you and your family and I appreciate you leaving the house in such good order. I am happy to say the new blinds are in and they look great. Also the ants have gone to 'ant heaven'.
