About Patrick

I have been a Broadway actor/singer/dancer for 25 years and purchased this property while on the national tour of Mel Brooks' 'THE PRODUCERS' at the nearby Broward Center for the Performing Arts. I'm originally from West Virginia, but now make my home in New York City.

Patrick purchased this house in 2004

Why Patrick chose Fort Lauderdale

I fell in love with Ft. Lauderdale many years ago while touring the country in Broadway shows that played at the beautiful Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Lauderdale. Ft. Lauderdale's pristine beaches, world class shopping, superb dining options, and multitude of attractions make it one of the most popular resort destinations in the country. And did I mention the weather!! There is nothing quite like a week long retreat to Ft. Lauderdale.

What makes this house unique

Among the many reasons I fell in love with this home would be it's unique layout and open loft-style floor plan, the spectacular 1,200 sq. ft. sun terrace, premium upgrades throughout, the quiet, residential neighborhood, and proximity to 'everything' - shopping, dining, white sand beaches, Publix grocery store just blocks away, theaters, the airport, and of course Las Olas Boulevard. As you read through the many guest reviews, you will notice that previous guests love the neighborhood and the 3rd floor sun terrace, which get's direct sun all day. You will enjoy stunning views of downtown from the terrace. But mostly, this property will feel like 'home,' not a rental property, and certainly not a cramped hotel room.

If this property is booked for the dates you are seeking, check out my other home here on Homeaway. It is listing 3813563.

Guestbook comments from the owner

3/24/10

Great house, very clean and well located in Fort Lauderdale. The area is pretty quiet and the terrace is great for relaxing during the day and evening night. I rented many houses the last few years but Patrick's house is one of the most fully equipped I saw so far (lot of kitchen tools and super BBQ with extra gas!). Worth the price.

Wonderful vacation house two blocks from New River!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Patrick,

We had a wonderful week in Fort Lauderdale. Your home met all our expectations and had everything we could possibly need for our time there. The weather was much cooler than normal but absolutely perfect for us. The house is in a perfect location for getting around. We made trips north to Parkland to visit our daughter and family, went to the Morikami Japanese Gardens which we enjoy, took in a food session at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, celebrated a birthday at Prime 112 in Miami, walked to dinner at the Pirate Bar and Grille, took in a movie, and did much walking around the neighborhood and area, even meeting Issac and his owner. Your open living area even afforded us great morning yoga time. It was handy having a remote for the garage. We also appreciated your binder which explained everything so well and offered much information. We returned to a minus 2 degree temperature this morning. Quite a difference! Makes us anxious for spring.

Thanks again,

Pat and June

Wonderful home in convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults + 2 toddlers) and my mother and sister stayed here for four nights when we were in Fort Lauderdale for a wedding last month. The home is lovely, exceeding our expectations in every way, and comfortably accommodated four adults and two children without needing to use the pull-out sofa in the living room. The owner, Patrick, is very responsive, timely answering all of my questions about the property before we booked the rental. Checking-in was extremely easy, and we greatly appreciated the bottle of wine awaiting our arrival after a long flight from the west coast with two squirmy children. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the location was great, allowing us to walk to a wonderful science museum and many restaurants and shops. There were baby gates and some toys in the garage for our use, which enabled us to gate off the tiled stairs and provided some entertainment for the children while were were in the house. Heavy rains prevented us from using the third-floor roof deck and the pool, but they looked nice. Because of the sudden and heavy downpours, we especially appreciated being able to park our car in the attached garage. Our security deposit was returned promptly upon check-out. If we ever return to Fort Lauderdale, we definitely would stay here again. Everyone was very happy with the accommodations. Thank you, Patrick, for sharing your lovely vacation home with us and helping us have a wonderful, relaxing week!

Girls Trip.

Our trip was made extraordinary by the stay at this condo. It felt like home away from home. Everything was well organized and laid out down to restaurant menus in the area! Six ladies, six days and a little piece of heaven!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

This residence had everything we could have possibly needed or wanted for our three-week stay. Can't say enough good things about it; Location, Aesthetically Appealing, Super Clean, Spacious, Comfortable, Diverse (roof top deck to the ground-level yard with pool), Fully Equipped Kitchen, and the list of great amenities goes on! With all of our home-away-from-home needs being completely met, we were able to spend the desired amount of time on our vacation, sight-seeing and local travel plans. Working with Patrick was great. He is prompt, informative and efficient. Looking forward to a return visit!!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Having 3 children we use rental properties a lot and this was the nicest one yet by far. Everything was spotlessly clean and organized. Did not feel like a rental at all. There was wine and soda waiting for us when we arrived, a nice touch. Home is very spacious and beautifully decorated too. Plenty of towels, linens, cooking utensils. Loved that there was a big supermarket a couple of blocks away! We all enjoyed the pool and the large sun deck with rinsing shower and plenty of lounges. The fact that we could play music through the sound system on the sundeck was an added bonus. Super fast internet and cable with all the movie channels you could want (a first for us). Location could not be beat; close to everything, especially the airport and restaurants. Patrick always answered questions quickly and check-in/checkout procedures were super clear. The kids have already inquired about returning next year, which we will. Thank you Patrick for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
