Fort Lauderdale House Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom + office in tropical setting. Close to downtown, entertainment, beach
Come stay with us! We understand. We've traveled the world and know first-hand what travelers want when it comes to accommodation.
Imagine feeling at “home” in the center of Ft. Lauderdale. Your heart will melt when you see this place! The one bedroom plus office unit is actually “half” of a large South Florida style house. It's bright, clean and spacious.
We just finished a big renovation. The kitchen has granite counter-tops, stainless appliances and is fully equipped. We put in new flooring through-out, a new bathroom with a big shower - a new queen-sized bed - in fact all new furniture – tastefully decorated.
Enjoy 'Cheeseburgers-in Paradise' in a tropical setting on the outside patio (yes bar-b-que provided). The yard is fenced for privacy. Air conditioning, high speed WIFI internet, flat screen TV (full package HDTV), off-street parking, linens and bath towels, kitchen equipped.
The location is something else. We're in beautiful Victoria Park in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida close to downtown and trendy Las Olas Boulevard - perfect for shopping, dining and night life. Fresh Market is a block away. A beautiful white sand beach is only a 5 minute drive. Enjoy the sun, swim in the turquoise blue ocean or watch the cruise ships head out to sea.
Ft. Lauderdale is known as 'The Venice of America' with all its beautiful canals and bays - and is home to some of the world's most magnificent yachts. It's an ocean lover's paradise. There's much to do - fish, sail or kiteboard. Or if you’re more into land based things visit the Museum of Art, Museum of Discovery & Science or take in a live theater performance.
Make this your home base. Rent a car and go for a couple afternoon outings. Explore Alligator Alley, visit the Seminole Indian Tribe and watch them wrestle alligators. Drive down South Beach’s famous Deco Drive and sample the Florida Keys.
When you stay with us it's like coming home.
Happy travelling!! Hope to see you soon...

Guestbook comments from the owner
From the moment we contacted to Shirley to the moment we left their home, this was the most welcoming experience we've had. Shirley and Boris told us this would be a home away from home and true to their word this certainly was our home away from home! The property was superbly clean and had everything that we needed: Cosy kitchen with open plan living which had entertainment available. The bedroom was great with a super comfortable queen-sized bed, all of which has been recently renovated to a superb standard. The location of the home is fantastic being very close to Los Olas Blvd which is a shopping, restaurant, cafe hub of Ft Lauderdale and not to mention being only foot steps away from Fresh Market (supermarket/Deli) which has an amazing choice of food. If your looking for great value, great location, and a sensational home, look no further!

Over the years my husband and I have traveled much of the globe. Being big travelers and exposed to all sorts of accommodation we know how wonderful it is to discover a place that really feels like 'home'. We think we've created this in our Vacation Rentals - and I'm happy to say our guests agree!
We love Ft. Lauderdale - perfectly named the 'Venice of America' with all it's water channels and beautiful scenery. It's sunny, warm and tropical, and has a laid back Caribbean-like atmosphere. Since we're drawn to the ocean and anything marine related its the perfect place for us.
Some of our favorite things to do:
* Go for an early morning walk along the beach...then a dip in the ocean.
* 'Friday night concerts' in our neighborhood park - (during the summer months).
* Stroll along Las Olas - and indulge.... at the frozen yogurt shop!!
* 'People watch' while enjoying a glass of wine outside of Mango's (Restaurant). Friday nights they have a live band and dancing.
* Shop for ingredients at Fresh Market (a block away) for an outside bar-b-que on the patio.
* Go boating with friends.
The things I couldn't live without would be family & friends, the ocean, traveling and good food!!
Our life has been one big adventure and it keeps getting better.
If you want to get to know us better - you can read about our travels. In our first book we describe our first sailing experience - crossing the Pacific Ocean to Australia with our 8 month old baby. It's called 'The Unsinkable Spirit - In Search of Love, Adventure and Riches!' Enjoy the read!
We love the location!!! We had a blast renovating the property to our standards. The neighborhood is fantastic - convenient, central - 2 miles to a beautiful beach. Couldn't be better.
It's oozing with charm and character. The shaded yard is full of tropical vegetation When you walk inside it's smells good!! It's super clean. All appliances are new - new flooring, new furniture, freshly painted, big flat screen TV (loaded), high speed WIFI - all the comforts of home!!!
