BACKYARD PARADISE: 2BD/2BATH WATERFRONT HOME WITH POOL, TIKI BAR

Fort Lauderdale House Rental Photos and Description

This wonderful house is your home away from home. Spacious rooms and open floor plan with paradise backyard containing beautiful pool with waterfall decoration, 8+ person tiki bar, and privacy landscaping and waterfront canal will make you want to stay home all day and play.

Two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a futon in the back den, and a pull-out sofa in the living room make this home a comfortable stay for up to six guests. Both bedrooms have queen beds, dressers, and closet space. The master has a private full bathroom. There is a pack and play in the garage if needed. The living and dining rooms and a fully appointed kitchen provide everything for home dining. The backyard deck with a propane grill, large tiki bar, and private pool with waterfall decoration allow you to live outside all day, if you wish.

If your interests are more exploring and taking in the sights and sounds of Ft. Lauderdale, the house is located a short drive or cab ride from all the activity. Lauderdale-by-the-sea has many great restaurants such as Aruba on the beach with live weekend music and Village Pump with its New England vibe for games, dinner, and drinks.

Ft. Lauderdale beach offers beach-front dining and drinks, shopping, people watching, and large sidewalks for walking or running. Las Olas is the fine-dining, upscale shopping and restaurant section of town. Downtown offers historic background, a low-key restaurant and bar selection, and late-night bars and entertainment. All are located a short drive away.

Our house is located in a great quiet neighborhood right in the heart of Ft Lauderdale. You are close to the beaches, shopping, and restaurants. The house is fully air conditioned and has a washer and dryer in the garage.

About Kim Kroha

My husband and I loved living in this home since purchased in 2001. However, a new job brought us back to his hometown of Boston. We can't part with this house and love being able to share all of the fun and relaxing times in the backyard with other folks and families making their own memories. We hope you love this house as much as we do. We think you will!

Kim Kroha purchased this house in 2001

Why Kim Kroha chose Fort Lauderdale

We love the location of this house being close to the action of Ft. Lauderdale but with a residential and safe feel. The neighborhood streets are great for walking or jogging. Many of the neighbors have owned their homes for a long time and have become good friends. There is easy access to beaches, restaurants, and on-and-off the highway.

What makes this house unique

The living room offers great views of the backyard with large sliding doors for access. The backyard is our favorite spot with a tiki bar we had built that seats 8+ people and has its own stereo and lights. The pool was redone in 2005 with tile edging, a waterfall accent, and a paver patio. There is so much to do in the local area, but we have always found our best times to be here at the house in the backyard. After living in the area so long, we can provide recommendations for basically any activity that you are interested in. Please let us know and we will provide you with as much detail as possible!

Tropical and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Me, my husband and two adult children thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental. The backyard is a tropical oasis.....so tranquil and beautiful. I especially loved laying on my floatie in the pool listening to the music from the Tiki Hut! We have rented many houses in Florida and the things I look for is...good neighborhood, cleanliness, comfortable furniture, and a great pool. This house had everything! We went to several beaches that were close by, an airboat ride in the Everglades and even went kayaking. Kim was fantastic to deal with. She was very accommodating and helpful, she made the whole process very easy.

The pictures made us excited, but upon arrival we were just amazed with how nice it actually was. The house had everything you need to feel at home. Everything is within a short distance, and when you're hanging out by the pool it has the feeling of being off the beaten path. Very comfortable and very happy with the property. I highly recommend!!!

Five star, no doubt.

Our thanks to Kim and Robert for a wonderful two-weeks vacation. Now two weeks after our coming back home we really feel like getting back. One forgets any city noise after the very first hours of stay in this beautiful house in a quietness of this Imperial Point street. If you want to catch first signs of the morning sun sitting over the water surface of one of the Fort Lauderdale channels please come here. The house has all what one need for any family, for people of any age. It is located within minutes of the beach, restaurants, shopping. Me and my wife were happy to stay here. It is not our first experience of renting houses in Fort Lauderdale area. We appreciate what we got here. Five star, no doubt.

Great spot!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had originally looked at renting a condo closer to the beach. However, with a 7 year old, we questioned how restricted we'd be in the evening, morning, or when we simply didn't feel like going anywhere. We envisioned us having to lug towels and coolers every time we wanted to use the bulding's pool area when we weren't at the beach. When we started looking at homes as an alternative, finding something close to the beaches at a reasonable price was challenging. Plus, a few people we spoke to hardly spoke english which made it difficult to get a feel for our potential rental. Then we found this place. The owners no longer live in Fort Lauderdale, but this was their home not too far back. They know the area, and before even travelling to Fort Lauderdale, they had provided us with a list of local ammenities, restaurants and tourist attractions. The home was spotless upon our arrival and with a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, we ended up travelling with another couple. The master bedroom was large enough for us to set up the spare bed in our room for our son. That bed is typically kept in a den area adjacent to the kitchen, but still with privacy. The furniture, utensils, TV etc were what the owners would have used, so not your typical cheapest of everything that rental owners often get. We had rented a home in Orlando 2 years earlier, and it felt very much like a "rental" This place didn't. It felt more like we were staying at a friend's house. The true gem of the house is the back yard, which adds an entire other dimention to the house. Our son swam every morning and night, and the adults relaxed outside. We didn't use the tiki bar as we were fine getting our drinks from the kitchen through either of the 2 patio doors that lead back inside. We had a rental car, so the beaches were a 5-10 minute drive depending on traffic. Parking is very reasonable in Fort Lauderdale. The owners considered everything! They even made a few upgrades in outdoor lighting when we suggested it. Although not a luxury home, this is a very well maintained, very clean and cosy home with a great layout in a quiet neighbourhood. Five of us were very comfortable, and we didn't feel crowded at any point. I gave it a 5 star because of the overall experience; both in how amazing the owners were (we've even kept in touch), and for what the location, back yard and home comfort had to offer. We would stay there again, and have recommended to a few of our friends.
