Beautiful Home...Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5
This home was, by far, the most well-kept, best appointed vacation home that I have had the pleasure of renting. The property owner is extremely responsive and an absolute joy to work with. I rented this home for a business trip (in addition to staying at the house, we actually used it as a set for an educational video my company was taping), and I was pleasantly surprised to find a fully-equipped office space, including printer, monitor, keyboard, and all supplies. The rest of the house was equally well-stocked, and was very comfortable...I felt right at home.

I would highly recommend this house. It is a beautiful waterfront property with all the amenities of home. Most vacation homes I have rented provided minimal supplies, particularly in the kitchen. Here, there was everything I could imagine I might possibly need. (There were even books, magazines, and board games -- none of which I had the opportunity to use, since I was there for business, but a very nice touch.) I only wish I had reason to return to the area with my family for leisure purposes.

This property is beautiful! Great backyard!!

  • 5 of 5
First on all, this is a HOME, not a house. The owners of this property are wonderful to deal with, feel like family now. We stayed in this home for over a month due to construction nightmares at our own house. The home is beautiful and cozy and felt like home to us very quickly. We have kids who LOVED the good sized backyard with a dock for fishing and a boat for adventures in the lake! Excellent location, super convenient to everything. If we ever go on vacation in our own neighborhood again we'll come right back to this home!!!! Thank you Carol and Michael so much!!!!!

Good place to stay for a Ft. Lauderdale visit!!!

  • 4 of 5
This rental was as advertised. We rented the house for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The house is located in a secluded residential community but very close to about anything you wish to do in Ft. Lauderdale.

The owners were quick to answer any questions we had and gave us very good service...could not have been better.

I would recommend this property to any friends and family that might have an interest and we would return ourselves.

There are two issues that could be improved upon. First the shrubbery needs trimming and the cleaning service the owners employ needs to do a better job. There were parts of the house such as curtains and corners that should have been cleaned better. These are not serious problems but with better oversight of their service providers, the problems can be addressed with a little effort.

Otherwise, everything worked and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The swimming pool was great and the deck adjoining the pool saw daily use!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review the property and for giving us such valuable feedback. We are in the process of changing our lawn service for the lack of response in tending to the hedges. Anna, the housekeeper, had a hip replacement 2 months ago, and I am confident she will be back to the top of her game in no time. I will go ahead and Fedex the medicine you forgot upon your departure. We look forward to hosting you again any time! :)

Comfortable, convenient, quiet

  • 4 of 5
We found this home comfortable, light and bright, and conveniently located. The house is within easy reach of 595 Highway - only 10 minutes to Fort Lauderdale airport and downtown Fort Lauderdale - yet in a quiet suburban neighbourhood. We enjoyed the lakefront vista with ducks and turtles and spent a lot of time lounging by the pool. The house was well equipped and all that we needed to stock the house for a month was readily available in local stores. We also enjoyed the proximity to Sawgrass Mills shopping centre though this turned out to be a rather expensive benefit!!! The house is also very close to the Frank Veltri tennis centre which I really enjoyed. The owners allowed us our privacy while being readily available to deal with questions or concerns. We recommend this property for up to 6 people, including families. Our dog Bailey also gave the fully-fenced garden a "thumbs up". We found this property good value for $ and would certainly rent again.

Lovely Home and great location

  • 4 of 5
We got off to a slightly rocky start due to issues with the pool, however Michael ensured the situation was rectified within 24 hours.Tthe house is in a lovely quiet and safe area. It is within easy reach of great shopping and restaurants. There is absolutely everything you will need in the house. All you need to take is yourself and any personal items you require. We loved sitting outside and watching the varied wildlife, birds, squirrels, ducks etc. We enjoyed eating fresh mangoes from the mango tree in the garden and took a couple of trips in the boat around the large lake. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would come again without hesitation.
