Personal Paradise

  • 5 of 5

When my husband and I closed the door after our month-long stay at Secret Oasis last year we felt so rejuvenated we promised each other we would try to make an annual visit and stay for a month if possible. Walking back through the door this year was like coming home. The property is immaculate and extremely well-equipped; the owners, Tom and Denis, have thought of every tiny detail to make each guest as comfortable as possible. A stroke of sheer genius inspired them to add a Tiki Hut, surrounded by lavish tropical vegetation, to the already gorgeous pool area. Once settled under the fragrant fronds, you will completely relax and melt onto the other side of time! Lights, pool and sprinkler system run automatically; the pool is cleaned weekly and Paul, the very friendly and knowledgeable landscaper, keeps the lush gardens trimmed, healthy, and happy. Ronald, the manager (and one of the nicest people on the planet!), is nearby and available to take care of any minor issues that might come up. During our stay we enjoyed excellent meals at Casa d'Angelo (upscale Italian, the house-made ravioli is delicious) Blue Moon Fish Company (the Chilean Sea Bass is superb), and Thasos (modern Greek, great atmosphere--try the flaming cheese!) Most days we drove the short distance to the beach to walk in the sand and always found convenient, low-cost parking. I highly recommend this property without any hesitation and am already looking forward to my stay next year!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and property. The back yard is huge and the tiki hut was the perfect place for evening meals. The landscaping reminded us of being in Hawaii. The bird of paradise in the front yard was in bloom, it's my favorite flower. We cannot thank you enough Tom and Denis for sharing your amazing home with us.

French Polynesia in North America

  • 5 of 5

If you've been to Tahiti or some other island in that part of the world you will know what we mean by that title. Tranquil, lush, and comfortable. Like home, except you're away. It truly is a home away from home, in a secret oasis in the middle of Fort Lauderdale. Incredibly, one could spend an entire week in the impeccably clean house and on the grounds (and superb those grounds are) without desiring or needing to leave except for groceries or dining out. One would have to try very hard to NOT relax when they are here. Inside, we can't think of anything we would want or that we needed that the owner did not provide. There is even a Vitamix!! All this value for much less investment of time and money compared to a trip to the South Pacific. We plan to return,

We had a great time

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time at this place. The tiki hut was awesome and we much preferred having dinner in the tiki hut by the pool, rather than going out. The pool was a decent size and very well maintained, nicely lit when dark. The kitchen is fully equipped and it has more than what you need for vacation cooking. The location is good, but you do need to drive to all restaurants and shopping. We would definitely love to come back!

A FIVE STAR GETAWAY!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home and the property grounds are immaculate! The inside is beautifully designed, spacious and the kitchen was perfect. There was everything and more - from cappuccino maker to every size pot, pan, dish, spices, cooking utensil you can imagine. We absolutely loved the Fresh Market's wild salmon and grilling in the backyard while the kids played in the pool. We would eat our meals under the tiki hut and spent the majority of our time in the backyard. The beds were so comfortable and the towels were so soft. Ronald greeted us immediately and was there in case we needed anything. The owners were extremely prompt and professional. The only thing we regret is not booking further in advance so that we could've stayed longer!! You do need a car, but we always rent one when in Florida, so it was no problem. We felt really safe in the neighbourhood and would recommend this property to anyone. If we ever go to Fort Lauderdale again, we will be looking to rent this home!!!
