About Sandra Naylor

I am a long time local resident. I am not a rental agency so therefore like to greet my guests personally and am happy to provide with any helpful information on dining, recreation and nightlife, or anything else you may need assistance with, while your stay here at Villa Pine. You can reach me at any time. I take pride in my personal assistance with my guests as this is also my home where I once lived. I do not consider it a hotel but more like sharing a lovely place to help you have a relaxing, fun and memorable holiday with your family/firends. I can also be a concierge, at no charge, if you need to book car reservations, restaurants, or anything you may need prior your stay at Villa Pine. Just let me know in advance , when you book with me and I will take care of your needs if you're not familiar with the area or perhaps simply from another country and need help with the language.

Why Sandra Naylor chose Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

It feels like a little Shangri-La nestled in a very quiet street and completely private. The street starts at intercoastal and ends at the ocean. Children are safe to play outside and there is safety police cars that drive around at least 4 times a week. I lived here with my own children so I know what a great place it is to be here. My kids loved it and so do my family and friends.

What makes this townhome unique

Feels like a home not a rental, in a small, quaint beach side friendly community with a great pool! Very safe environment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family has rented before in Fort Lauderdale and we just loved this area now. Its a great little town by the beach. The villa is located really close by the shops and the beach as well. It suited us all just fine as far as sleeping and hanging out. The house is plentiful and clean. Its true when she says you don't need anything, just bathing suits. The owner was terrific and we hope to rent again soon if we can.

Very Nice Home!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed here for a long weekend and this place was perfect. Clean, pretty, spacious, and accommodating. We also enjoyed the use of the heated pool. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your straight to the point review. These points are the most important things that people look for in a stay so I appreciate it very much. Always happy when my guests enjoy themselves.

Lovely Villa, in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely villa, very spacious and equipped with everything you could possibly need.

9 of us stayed in the Villa for 2 weeks, it was plenty big enough for our 3 families, which included children between ages of 11 and 6.

Heated Pool was perfect for the children and adults.

The villa is in a great location for the beach, just a short walk down 2 blocks, made easier with the beach caddy available to use.

Close to all the bars and restaurants, we walked to these most nights. Shopping area with Publix, Dunkin Donuts, First Watch Breakfast Restaurant is literally at the end of the path, 2 mins walk away.

We had a lovely family holiday and would recommend Lauderdale by the Sea and Villa Pine.

Owner's Response: I cannot thank you enough for writing this review. We all know how important a review is to rent a home. We can describe a home as being nice and being perfect, as an owner, but we know that coming from a guest, it means so much more to those reading these reviews. I am just always so happy when my guests are willing to sit down and say what they really experienced. I take great pride in my home and always strive to make every aspect of their stay, a wonderful and enjoyable holiday. So thank you for your time and thank you for staying in my home. I hope that I get to see you again in the near future to add even more great memories to your life.

A beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Despite our relatively short stay, we really enjoyed every moment in this beautiful beach house. It was spacious which could accommodate nine people. The kids loved the pool and the outstanding fact about the house was its vicinity to the spectacular Lauderdale beach. The house owner was quite organized and informative during the booking process and very helpful during our stay. I would highly recommend it to the friends.

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that you had a great stay. I agree, you cannot beat the location as my own kids grew up in this area and they could walk everywhere and loved that. The house is very comfy and I always love informing my guests on what to do and ideas of where to go during your stay. Thanks again so much for writing this review and I really hope to see you again soon ;)

Great stay!

Comfortable Home close to LBTS

  • 4 of 5

Four adults and four children (11, 8, 8, 3) stayed for a week winter break Feb 2015. The property was very comfortable and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. Although Sandra allows up to 10 people, I think more than 8 would feel crowded. We really liked that there are two rooms with King sized beds; that is hard to find. While things are a bit dated, it is still a nice place - especially the pool area. I think she could upgrade some linens/pillows and her showerhead in the main upstairs bathroom needs to be replaced. Also note that the queen sized bedroom is a smaller room off the kitchen and next to the laundry room. It was a great private area for an 11 year old, but I would not recommend it for a couple. The location is easy walking distance to the beach and supermarket. We did not have a car so this was very convenient. It is also not too far to town, about a 15 minute walk. We found it a tad too long with a toddler, but definitely doable. There is a really nice playground on the way. There are some decent restaurants in LBTS, but they can be pricey. The ice cream shops are the best! There is a beach cart, some beach chairs and umbrellas plus sand toys galore for the kids. Note that she has a puddle jumper floating device for a child stored in one of the cabinets in the laundry room. There is a good selection of dvds (and games), but you cannot watch more than 3 TVs at a time. With kids of various ages, it was a minor issue at night. Her kitchen is well stocked and we enjoyed cooking dinners there. All in all it was a very pleasant stay and considering the weather was not great, we were at least happy to be in home where we felt at home.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate it very much that you took time to write a very nice review. I am mostly happy that you had a good time and felt at home. That's the best compliment I could get since that is what I am striving for. I am not sure why you say in your review, that you can only watch 3 TVs at a time There was one box that went bad but after you left I had them replace the receiver. I have updated the points you made since you left and I am thankful for you pointing them out so I could do so. The queen size bedroom is smaller than the rest, but it is definitely more appropriate for and elder person who doesn't want to climb the stairs every night. Once again, I am so very thankful for your review and hope that next time you come to Lauderdale by the Sea, you can stay in your home away from home, Villa Pine ;)

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Villa Pine - 6 adults and 2 teenagers - and had a great time. Lots of space, great bathrooms, nice garden and heated pool, and a fine location with walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Very quiet and safe area. The house is clean and well kept, however some of the kitchen equipment needs replacement. Lots of clean towels and linen available.

The owner, Sandra, is very friendly and helpfull. We would indeed recomend Villa Pine to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write a review. It was a pleasure to have you stay at my home and I am most appreciative of constructive criticism. I am in the process of changing out the fridge to a stainless steel one but because of my back to back bookings I have not had time to do so. I am so thrilled that you had a nice time and that you liked the area and were comfortable with the home. Friendliness is important to me and that you feel at home is, as well. Hope to see you soon again and I promise that the new fridge and dishwasher will be in soon!
