Fort Lauderdale House Rental Photos and Description
3 BR Home right in Downtown Ft Lauderdale
The Mango House was built around 1925 and has a huge garden with mango trees. We are downtown and a short bike ride to the beach, walk to Las Olas and downtown with shopping, museums, dining and famous Fort Lauderdale nightlife. The house is 3 blocks from the main bus terminal, 12 minutes from the airport and taxis get here in 3 minutes. You don't really need a car. You can rent bikes nearby. The best Irish bar with live music and great food is a block away.
We're in an up-and-coming neighborhood with loft apartments and urban pioneers. It's not a fancy neighborhood but it's central and safe. I have owned this house for 19 years and the neighborhood is as safe as any other. It's your country home in the city!
The house is rustic and charming. The house has never been fully renovated and still keeps an old world charm. The house has been refinished and is very clean with central air conditioning. The garden will amaze you, complete with running river. The people who come here love it mostly because it is so authentic, true to character. There is an outdoor bathroom... Bubble baths in the garden. You can hang out here and have fun. The kitchen has been renovated and is always the gathering place. The appliances are all high-end. We even have a stock of frozen mango from last summer's crop that we put into the blender on many occasions (you will be able to also!).
There are three bedrooms (2 queen beds and one full size) in the main house and there is also the MangoManCave, a cottage out back, separate from the main house and adjacent to the outdoor bathroom. The house is listed as a four bedroom and if you want to occupy the cottage then there is an additional charge per night of $40. There is a single bed with trundle (pullout bed makes king size), sleeps 2 or three. There is a sink and small fridge and interesting art work.
NOTE FOR GROUPS OF 7 OR MORE: If you are requesting a stay for more than 7 people (adults), then you will need to either rent the Mahogany House next door or the small cottage behind the Mango House. The Mahogany House is a charming 2 bedroom home that sleeps 7 with two queen beds, a queen pullout and day bed. The two houses are on the same fenced-in property but have their own privacy. Both houses together with the Cottage the total is for 16 people in beds.
The entire yard, about half an acre, is fenced in and even small dog proof. The outdoor shower and tub are worth the trip!
There are pets (cats) on the premises but none live in the house. We do keep bees on the property. They are about 50 feet from the house is a wooded area and not near any paths. They are very docile.
We're looking forward to hearing from you. Just tell me what you are interested in I'll see what we can do.
