The following review was posted on VacationHomeRentals by Lynn and Mike Overly (Indiana USA) on March 19, 2008:
Home away from home - We can't say enough about our stay in Lou and Jim's great house. The backyard is a dealbreaker with extreme privacy and wonderful landscaping. It was especially great at night. They were wonderful landlords for our foray into winter Florida living. The house has such a homey feel we didn't think about our home once. Everything you need and more is provided and again, I can't overstate how gracious the guys were. At one point, we had 4 guests and there was plenty of room for all and everyone was impressed by how well maintained the home was. Great experience and we'll definitely be back.
This was our family's 1st experience not only renting a home (that would COMFORTABLY sleep 7) but also our 1st experience vacationing in Miami. After hours & literally DAYS of researching hundreds of internet listings (in addition to price comparing motels and reading tripadvisor reviews) of rentals located in the Miami area all the way north to Pompano Beach, this property TOPPED THE LIST for value, cleanliness, privacy, and amennities. Of the dozens of inquiries I made from both the rental owners and the BBB, Lou was the ONLY owner not intimidated or offended by my questions, as I had no idea what to expect! He graciously & thoughtfully answered each question in detail, and as far as I know, he's the only one of at least 50-75 inquiries that is licensed with the Dept of Business & Professional Regulation, Division of Hotels & Restaurants. He was one of the few (if not the ONLY one) that did NOT require a damage deposit; by mentioning his name you can receive a 10% off Gold Coast car rental, and he helped our family of seven get the MAX of our TIME & MONEY by sending us the Greater Ft Lauderdale Vacation planner (at his own expense); he emailed web links for discounts to local attractions & restaurants & shops & family/kid attractions; he shared plane ticket advice & info & even emailed a live beach cam link which provided 6 months of happy anticipation! He helped these northern tourists find their way around town and SAVE GAS by preparing a map for us to affordable restaurants serving the cuisine we had mentioned we were interested in. Lou PAYS ATTENTION to you! But YOU DON'T PAY travel agent fees for his GENEROUS, kind, considerate and SINCERE customer service -- if you want it (or need it), Lou will get it for you! Thanks, Lou, for all the behind-the-scenes work, dedicated effort, and personal expense you donated towards making our vacation memorable. You didn't make us feel like guests; you made us feel like FAMILY! Your friends the Baums from The Buckeye State! And all goes well for the generous man who conducts his business fairly. Psalm 112:5
As expected from the previous reviews our satu was delightful byte house is spacious, private and most important, it's super clean!!! We felt very at home and comfortable. I went with my husband, mother and mother in law, and there was enough space for all to have privacy and also to enjoy each other. Would highly recommend this property.
We were extremely happy with our stay at this property. Any questions we had were answered promptly by our contact.
Before we arrived we needed to get in touch with Steve, the property manager ... He was very accommodating and made everything smooth and easy!! ... The house was very well prepared and welcoming! ... We had a great stay - INSPITE of the smoke detector acting up but it was immediately addressed by Steve when we let him know ... Why is it always at 4 a.m.? ... Love the comfort and ease of this house!
The house was very close to the convention center and the beach which was important to us. The house was very cool in the hot humid July weather, the beds were comfortable (well the sleeper poked a bit), the pool was nice, there was plenty of tourist and local events information laid about in the house. The flowers were beautiful. The Kitchen, refrigerator and bathrooms were very clean. It was nice to be able to wash clothes daily since there weren't a lot of towels/washcloths and detergent was provided. The walls and floors really needed cleaning. Lincoln answered all my emails and was very courteous. It was a quick trip and we didn't get to utilize all the amenities but we were comfortable.
A well-maintained single storey home with pleasant, well-planted grounds and an inviting pool and terrace area, situated in a quiet residential community. The house is well-placed for exploring Fort Lauderdale, and only 15 minutes from the beach. The property is casually furnished with all mod cons, a/c throughout, and is spacious enough in its design to accommodate several guests (we were only two, so it seemed more than adequate). An excellent supermarket is nearby, as is an Enterprise car rental office. Fort Lauderdale is easy to drive around in, and we got the hang of the road network quickly and without any disasters! We had a fairly laid-back vacation (the heat!), but enjoyed the wonderful beaches, the historic Bonnet House, Las Olas Boulevard (for the restaurants, bars and high-end stores), and had fun just exploring as the mood took us. Miami is not far for those inclined. All in all, we'd recommend the property whole-heartedly. Our vacation was enhance by the wonderfully helpful and friendly Lou (the outgoing owner) - he made a real difference. Thanks, Lou!
