The neighborhood is very secure and very quiet and like-minded visitors are required. A quick twenty minute drive from the airport. Great deal and a great place for a laid back, casual family vacation.

Nearby: The legendary Mai Kai restaurant is a short walk away for all you tiki enthusiasts. Coral Ridge Mall is also just a 5 to 10 minute walk. If you get tired of the pool, and you won't, the best part of Fort Lauderdale Beach is just over a mile away. The home is a quick 20-25 minute drive from the airport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the wonderful time in Fort Lauderdale! We enjoyed the pool area so much, it's a beautiful pool! We had some adventures too and visited the Everglades, Key West, Palm Beach and Cape Canaveral. Our daughter loved shopping in Florida. We will always remember our time in Florida! Lots of greetings! -Family of 4 from Hamburg

Amazing Pool, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this property for eight weeks and loved every minute of it. The house is located in an upscale, quiet neighborhood that's safe and close to everything. The centrepiece of the home is the pool. You probably won't find a better one outside of Club Med. The pool also features a spa and a wading pool - perfect for the kids or, in our case, the dog. Our dog absolutely loved the wading pool! The backyard is fully fenced for privacy and the carport allows you to unload the groceries and stay dry if it ever happens to rain. We spent a couple of great evenings at the Hard Rock Casino which is only about a half hour drive away. To top it all off the owner is a good guy - very responsive and easy to deal with. Bottom Line: We were extremely happy to miss a good part of a harsh Canadian winter. We had a great time and would be happy to recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Everything they say about Canadians is true: the nicest, politest, most self-reliant people in North America. I'm really glad they enjoyed their stay, they were so nice. -Kevin

A private getaway!

  • 4 of 5
Our family spent Spring break in Fort Lauderdale. This house worked out great for our family of 5. Our kids ages 14, 12 and 10 did not want to leave this home. They absolutely loved the heated pool and hot tub. It was our very own private getaway in the backyard. Even a cloudy/windy day didn't keep us out of the pool/hot tub. The kids preferred the pool over the beach. Having the beach close by was a bonus. We enjoyed jet skiing on the beach. Grocery, shopping and restaurants were all conveniently close by. Kevin was great to deal with and very accommodating.
We had an issue with the pool not heating the first day , but the manager came over that day and fixed the problem. No complaints after that.
Everyone had there own beds and the house was clean.
Great Time!!Thanks Kevin!!God Bless!

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I rented this house for a relaxing getaway in South Florida. We were pleasantly surprised at how well it fit the bill for our vacation. While the outside isn't any more or less exceptional than the other houses in the neighborhood, the minute you walk in you're struck by how bright and open the place is. There is a nicely appointed living room with dining table off to the side. A kitchen with all the amenities (very nice appliances, dishes, etc.), that while narrow, is very long so it can accommodate multiple people preparing their own food or tropical drinks, etc.

There are bedrooms (3) down the hall. One has its own bath, the other two share a bathroom. The bedrooms are not exceptional in size, but they are individually air-conditioned and have nice furnishings. It was perfect for us as we didn't come down to Ft. Lauderdale to sleep the day away anyway.

The highpoint of the place is the gorgeous pool and roomy pool patio. The pool serves as the backdrop for the living room views, especially with the sliding glass doors pushed open to their max. The pool is a very nice size with a nice shallow end (with built-in umbrella stand) for enjoying drinks while cooling off in the water (which we did for hours on end). The pool also has a deep end, multi-colored lights for some interesting night effects and to top it all off, a heated (or not, if you prefer to stay cooler) hot tub attached with a waterfall that accents the pool. Needless to say, my friends and I enjoyed a few drinks while relaxing here as well.

The location is convenient (walking or driving) to several local stores (supermarket, liquor store - what more do you need?) and shops...also a Tiki Bar - The Mai Kai.

We really loved the place and would stay there again and again...but we don't want to recommend it...because then it might get too busy for us to come back.

Key West in Lauderdale - So True!

  • 4 of 5
The name says it all - Key West in Lauderdale. It has a great, South Florida, mid century vibe that I would expect in a funky Key West home. Lots of mature palm landscaping, tons of space inside and out. The pool and spa are particular gems - we spent nearly every moment we weren't at the beach lounging in there and enjoying the Florida sun. We also enjoyed fresh cocoa nuts in our drinks from trees right on the property! We grilled on the patio, enjoyed great dinners inside and out and really liked the "close, but not too close" location. We enjoyed the best of Fort Lauderdale nightlife and beach fun but had a nice quiet neighborhood "home" when we returned.
