Overview

Fort Lauderdale House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

UPDATE: The month of February is now available!

Located in Historic SailBoat Bend area of downtown Fort Lauderdale, this neighborhood is the only Historic District in Fort Lauderdale. You are in walking distance to the downtown River Front, dining, theater, Broward Performing Arts Center, Children Museum, water taxi to A1A beaches and shopping and dining on Las Olas Blvd.

The property sits right on the water and has a feeling of being on a boat when sitting inside the house. This property was once a boat house built around 1925 and was fully renovated in 2005 and is only one of a few properties that sit right on the water. City zoning codes no longer allow building right on the waterfront without a set-back from the water. The 40 foot deck sits right over the water and is on the New River. Being a one bedroom there is an Aero bed mattress for guest. The pool is not heated.

Nice people, nice place, nice time.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at dozens of vacation properties in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean and Europe. This is by far one of, if not the nicest places we have stayed. Better than advertised. This is also the cleanest property, hands down, of any of those we have stayed. Brian and Bill are very accommodating and easy to work with. When Bill was showing us the property and how the coffee machine worked, I told him, not to bother, I drank tea. The next morning he showed up with a brand new tea kettle to make our stay that much more comfortable - classy move.

The property is also very well equipped. Not like some of the bare bones places we have stayed, where you are out buying salt and pepper and paper towels. Great appliances, all new, great shower, etc. All top shelf stuff.

Good location, very private. Eclectic neighborhood which might put some off (not us). Walking distance to plenty of restaurants and sights (as far as that goes in Fort Lauderdale). Perfect for two people.

Nice people, nice place, nice time.

Luxury & Privacy

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful, beautifully landscaped and very nicely furnished. The hosts made sure everything was available. This was our first time using VRBO and it won't be the last if this is any kind of example of what we can expect. We loved the privacy. Thank You!

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a few days at the boathouse to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. The location was excellent and the accomodations superb. The unit is in excellent condition and we enjoyed lounging on the deck at water's edge. Very close to the airport, excellent restaurants and anything else you might need, yet secluded when home.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for my husband & I. The house is darling. Very well represented by the photos. Bed & bath were not pictured but are comfortable, modern & very well designed. The bath has double shower/tub unit. Property is well maintained & I would rent again from Brian in a heartbeat. He is very easy to work with & his associate met us at the property & showed us how everything worked. House is located in a real neighborhood. Very quiet area & the property has lots of privacy due to lovely outdoor landscaping. The pool is cleaned professionally each week & very enjoyable. We were able to walk to the Riverfront area. Very pleasant short walk. We found great little neighborhood cafes to eat at & enjoyed watching the boats on the river as they made their way past the swing bridge. Major supermarkets within 5 minute drive. Location was a simple, 10 minute ride from the airport & an easy drive to most everything.
