About Samantha

Our family has resided in Fort Lauderdale for the past 25 years. My husband is an Allstate insurance agent and I'm an independent insurance agent, we enjoy traveling boating and fishing. I am originally from France and fluent in both French and Spanish. We have two sons ages 12 and 14 who also enjoy fishing, going to the beach, football and water activities.

Samantha purchased this house in 2009

Why Samantha chose Lighthouse Point

We decided to purchase in this area because we fell in love with the secluded beach, the vacation atmosphere and the great fishing. We presently use the house in the summer occasionally on the weekends.

What makes this house unique

Great fishing/boating, kayaking, jet ski rental, parasailing, snorkeling, diving, biking and the great beach. Also nearby are great shopping, dining, movie theatre, golf course and bowling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely & comfortable home on the canal

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples and a single all meeting (from California, Ohio and Canada) in Ft. Lauderdale for vacation. The house seemed well-suited to our needs and our solo friend even used the back apartment, herself. She did mention that she thought the apartment kind of smelled like dogs when she arrived, but a scented candle helped with that. Also, the apartment bed is not very far off the ground, so if you have a bad back or bad knees, this bed might be difficult for you to get into and out of. That said, the apartment stays very dark and quiet in the morning, so it's a great choice for light sleepers. The main house is nicely decorated and spacious and the pool, while small, is really nice. We actually spent a lot of time in the backyard, which was quite enjoyable (even when it was pouring rain, we just stayed on the covered porch). My husband and I stayed in the "downstairs" converted garage room because it had the comfiest bed, we thought. That said, the room doesn't get as cool as the rest of the house. We had to keep the A/C very cold and the bathroom door open in order to get any airflow in there. You also need to be very aware of the step down into the room and the step up into both the bathroom and the house. However, Samantha has added reflective tape to help with this, which I appreciated. I agree with the reviewer that said the house smelled mildewy, but my grandmother's house in Cape Coral always smelled the same way, too. It's a by-product of a few different things (most of which aren't fixable) -- older architecture + high humidity for most of the year + high mineral/sulfur content in the water. So, we just burned some scented candles & fixed it right up! Samantha was incredible with communication and help and has thought of just about everything. We appreciated the washer & dryer and all of the kitchen items, too. The house is well-located (close to the beach and only about 15 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale proper). In addition, there is a Whole Foods and a Publix within 5 minutes driving which is great for stocking up on groceries!

A nice place to stay at while on a more quiet holiday in Florida

  • 4 of 5

The house was as pictured and the owners were really helpful with providing extra blankets, directions and such. The house is on a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to beach, supermarket and beach. We even used the kayaks and bikes the owners provided! We had a great stay. Although be aware the house might smell a bit damp, but Florida is a very humid area after all. That was well solved with having the AC on higher. A few rooms in the house do get hotter and more moist. The beach house was great as we were travelling with a small baby, perfect for napping. Do take into account that there are cockroaches both in the house and poolhouse. They are not the biggest of kind, but their droppings do appear on walls and one night we woke up to one trying to get his way to the other side of the room.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry, but we were not aware of the roaches issue at the house. We do have all of our houses treated by a professional pest control company on a monthly basis and would have been happy to have them go back to the house to inspect and treat, if we were informed of the situation while the tenant was at the house. Unfortunately, during the Spring and Summer months, the roaches are plentiful here in Florida due to heavy rain fall. After reading this comment, we have taken every steps to remedy the problem, so it will no longer be an issue.

Perfect for the little ones!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house - everything was exactly as described. We had two little ones with us (one year old and 2 year old) and the shallow part of the pool was perfect for them to play in. We were a quick walk away from the beach - no need to drive to the beach. We bought our food and used the kitchen almost exclusively (the area is quiet). The kitchen was well stocked with more than the essential utensils we had everything we needed. The owner was very accommodating and we had a great stay.

Great november vacation

  • 5 of 5

The stay at Pompano Beach was great! The house and the pool were in line with our high expectations. The standard was very good and the yard with the barbecue area, pool, tables and lounge chairs were just great. The pool was great and perfect for the children (and adults). Only 5min walk to the beach! Pompano Beach was a very nice area, a bit calmer relative Miami and Fort Lauderdale city center that really suited our family. The owner was very friendly and professional and answered immediately when we had questions.

We will definitely come back!

Great location for beach and very nice owners. Rented for month of January 2014

  • 4 of 5

This home is so great for a 5 minute walk across Hwy 1A to Pompano Beach where we were able to take our dog for morning and evening walks. We used the heated salt water pool almost every day of the month except when it was raining and 50 degrees with wind. January is good month to be in south Florida because the traffic has not become unbearable, but it is much warmer than the rest of the US. The neighborhood is safe, quiet (except for one day when there was a "drilling" noise at the boat body shop) and great for walking. The house has a very nice HVAC system as we had extremes in cold and heat but were very comfortable in the home. Other than some fix up items in the house, it was in good condition. We asked the owners to put "alert" tape on the steps up and down to the converted garage bedroom because we fell not realizing the step was there. The kitchen is equipped with an adequate amount of cookware, but I brought my own heavy duty pans because in past rental experiences, this was the item that was lacking in the kitchen. Owners were very nice and responsive to our needs---Samantha came and set up a secured wireless network for me that helped with the wireless speed. Both Samantha and Steve were very good to return emails and phone calls. We enjoyed their family very much. We did not use the detached apartment. There is a very nice clothes washer and dryer in the 2nd bathroom that came in very handy, especially since towel rods are scarce. This home has had some wear and tear since the pictures were posted but was a good value for the price. I would recommend this to family and friends who want a location with a fenced yard, close to the beach. We did use the spa facilities at the Marriott which is very nice. We ate at the Sunshine bagel cafe many times (next to Lighthouse Point park.)

Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house just last week and we loved it. The house is exactly how it is described. The backyard is an oasis with a great pool and plenty of lounge chairs. We loved the shallow part of the pool with the umbrella in it, so we could just relax and lounge in the water without getting to much sun. The house is tastefully decorated and welcoming. It was a nice short walk to the beach and the beach stroller made it so easy for us to lug our beach stuff to the water without to much effort. The kayaks we enjoyed by my husband and son. Samantha was extremely nice and accommodating to us. We were able to bring our 2 dogs which meant a lot since it is hard to find places to stay with them. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
