Property was in excellent condition.

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with how well supplied the house was with bed and bath linens, kitchen items, and laundry supplies for the washer and dryer. Claire thought of everything! By the way, the laundry room is accessed outside off the patio, something new for us northerners. Neighborhood is quiet. Streets in subdivision easy to walk. Library, community center, and shopping close. One thing we came to really enjoy was the Last Picture Show in Tamarack. We saw all the movies up for academy awards for $4 each, $2 on Tuesdays. These prices are for the entire day, not just a matinee price. Denny's Restaurant has a good discount for seniors and served pretty decent food. It was a good month for R 'n' R.

Our only disappointment was the very limited access to the ocean in Ft. Lauderdale. It meant parking and walking three blocks, carrying our lawn chairs. Since we definitely are seniors with some chronic physical conditions, we were not able to make daily or even weekly visits to the water.

Outstanding peace and quiet!

The property was clean and well appointed. Laundry facilities were complete. I especially enjoyed getting up each morning, making my cup of coffee and hanging out in my bare feet on the back porch in one of the chairs. The warm breeze flows through the neighborhood between the homes. The neighbors were all very nice but we didn't see them often. On the table next to the couch just inside the front door is a book about birds. I found this an invaluable touch to the whole thing as there are big ducks or geese that will stroll through the back yards for you to watch. Our first night there was a commotion outside that began in front, went between the houses under our window and across the back yard. It was a cat fight, only cats don't move fast while fighting. They face off with each other. The next day I saw the birds but no cats out and about and it dawned on me what had happened. We laughed for days about it. Apparently, a wayward kitty ran into one or more birds and the fight was on to get away. All the yowling hissing spitting way down between and across to some distant part of the neighborhood. It reminded me of a story my uncle told about his cat and an owl. So funny! This was our first time doing anything like this and we would definitely do it again. We would highly recommend this property. And if you want to avoid toll fees, it's easy to do. There are a lot of local sights to see. And if you don't mind a full day excursion, drive down to Key West. It has so much to see and do. Prepare to stay over when you get there. We didn't see all we wanted and the hotels were full. So plan ahead. Also, the airboat tours are all good. If you get down to the beach, get on the red trolley. It has two routes. One is for the beaches, the other ends up at the science discovery museum. That's cheap fun for all. I dare you to take off and land the A-380 flight simulator. I crashed. LOL! The restaurants at Lauderdale By the Sea are all outstanding. The ice cream shop with all the candy is deadly, but what the heck, you're on vacation. This little home was cheaper than any of the local hotels, even on priceline, for the same number of days. We had a great time there before our cruise. We can't wait for our next Florida vacation so we can do this again.

Owner's Response: Hi Kevin and family,

So glad you had such a wonderful time! I love the place myself because it is so convenient to everything, but quiet when you want quiet.

Speaking of Key West, our favorite place to stay is the Southernmost Point Guest House. It's a lovely old mansion with beautiful gardens, tropical plants, breakfast on the porch, and a plunge pool. It also has ITS OWN PARKING, very important down in Key West. The same cordial family has been running it since our 22 year old daughter was an infant.

Another great family place, in Coconut Creek, is Butterfly World, with it's misty gardens, tropical birds and clouds of butterflies. I go there and just sit to absorb the beauty. Look for discount coupons on line.

I wonder if the bananas were ripe while you were there? My Mom admired the neighbor's banana tree, so of course we had to plant one. Our DWARF tree was roof high when we went down the next year!

We'd love to have you again. Warm wishes, Claire

Enjoyed My Stay

  • 4 of 5
Quiet, clean, comfortable and a good value. I was in town for a conference so we did not spend much time at the house, just wanted a roomier alternative to a hotel room. It was very conveniently located in a nice residential neighborhood of similar homes with restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Note that there is no wireless available here if you need that. The owner was responsive and lovely via phone and email.

Cute, Clean Comfort!

  • 4 of 5
I stayed with two girlfriends at this home. The pictures of the house told the story very well- the house was as shown and in good repair. We enjoyed the location and the heated pool. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the beach, but an easy drive to get to ocean sand.

The new appliances were very nice! We didn't cook much, but could have - there was plenty of equipment.

Our favorite activity was relaxing on the patio, but you don't have to go far for an airboat ride, an alligator farm, or shopping. It's a nice walking neighborhood where you see the neighbors out walking or bicycling.

For a fun excursion, find the fruit stand "Robert Is Here" at Florida City one hour away - delicious fresh fruit drinks! info at: www.robertishere.com

The owner was accessible and informative. Our damage deposit came right back to our credit card.

The house is cute but small. The driveway holds only one car, so the house is suitable only for a small group of 3 or 4 at most. We would return and would recommend to others.

Wish more info was provided

The house description did not specify that it was in a 55+ senior citizen community (we are early 30's). The property was clean. The owner did not return emails about the deposit return. I would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Hi Jason and family,

I'm sorry you were not pleased with the neighborhood. I usually think it is a plus that the neighbors are older - it makes the neighborhood feel safer, and it is pleasantly quiet. The information on the web site does note that "neighbors are predominantly 55+" but you would be correct in saying that the information is not highlighted or emphasized.

I did not receive any emails from you about the security deposit. I believe there was a problem receiving your emails from the start, and we concluded the rental via phone for that reason. I am happy to say your deposit was refunded a day or two ago via PayPal, before you raised the issue in your review.

Hope you were able to enjoy the fishing and the convenient location regardless of the unfulfilled expectations.
