PARADISE FOUND!

Oakland Park House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms Safe Haven Pool Home

Our 'Key West' style residence is only a short 15 minute bike ride (or 5 minute car ride) to some of the best beaches in the world. We live on a quiet street with friendly neighbours providing a relaxing environment to call your ‘Home” away from home. Our 3 bedroom/3 bath house has approx. 2000 sq ft (200 sm) of living space and is tucked into a tropical paradise featuring a secluded back yard with exterior living space, a refreshing swimming pool, calming waterfalls, shaded seating areas, outdoor dining space and lushly landscaped gardens.

LOCALLY

Beaching: There is so much to do in Fort Lauderdale....beaches. We have 2 nice bikes to cruise up and down Jimmy Buffet’s A1A and enjoy the stylish hotels, tasty restaurants/cafes and beaches. Simply relax and sunbath under the swaying coconut palms or stroll along the seashore looking for shells. Oh, …and did we mention the beaches?

Boating: Known as the ‘Venice of America”, Fort Lauderdale has more waterways than any other city the world over. Take a deep-sea fishing tour, a day trip sailing to Nassau or simply boat up and down the hundreds of canals in one of our local water-taxi’s.

Big Boating: South Florida just happens to be the world’s largest cruise ship port giving you access to the all the islands of the Caribbean, ports of call in Central and South America and beyond.

REGIONALLY

Orlando: launching point for day trips to Disney, Key West and South Beach. Leave early, have a blast in these tourist destinations and still make it back for night swims in the lit pool. The world’s most popular tourist destination is but a 3 hour drive north. Home to Disney World, Universal, SeaWorld, numerous waterparks and other attractions. It is but a day trip away.

Key West: 2 hour drive south to the Florida Keys. Dive in Key Largo, fish in Marathon, and enjoy Margaretville and “Land’s End” of Key West.

Miami: We are very close to the unequalled night-life of South Beach. Experience all the glitz and glamour of the ART-Deco District, the fashion of Lincoln Road Mall and the unique quirkiness of Cocoanut Grove.

For the Nature-Lover:

Everglades National Park: One hour west of our home puts you in the middle of the the largest ‘River of Grass’, the Everglades of South Florida . Explore native Seminole and Miccosukee reservations which recreate the historical way of life. Various campgrounds within offer trailer & tent camping with kayaking or paddle boarding in which to experience the native wildlife up close …..even the alligators!!!

For the Adventurer:

Our marinas and ports provide charters for fishing, boating, diving and snorkelling. Numerous water sports rentals such as jet-skiing, wakeboarding, para-sailing, etc. can be found at several locations within a few minutes’ drive.

Wonderful spot

  • 4 of 5
My family (kids are college age and 14) rented this home in March and we had a wonderful stay. The house was spotless and the kitchen had everything we needed. The layout is perfect with plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We did not use the pool as it is not heated and was quite cold. I knew it was not heated when we rented but thought it might be ok to use but it was just to cold. My kids rode the bikes to the beach but it is not for young children as the roads are very busy (RT 1) and hard to cross. The beach is close but not an enjoyable walk due to the heavy traffic. The neighborhood around the home is quiet and nice. The nearby beach is perfect and we figured out the parking so it was very easy. I thought the backyard could have used some cleaning up but overall we sat out every morning and evening so not that bad. The only reason I did not give this an excellent was that the beds were not comfortable at all and I would have loved the pool to be heated. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and made sure that we were happy. Overall a charming home and we had a great stay.

Excellent location, charming home with beautifully landscaped backyard

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this house. It felt like my home away from home! The owner is very helpful and communicates as much as needed. The house was clean and there was plenty of room for our two small families to hang out. The kitchen is small but very well organized. We never ran out of space! The location is within minutes of a big shopping area and great local restaurants and grocery stores. It's also within minutes of the beach. We would definitely stay there again! The weather was much cooler than usual the week we were there so we were not able to use the pool, but hopefully next time we'll get to enjoy it. A++++

We had a great experience in this house. It is warm and inviting, cute and comfortable. The three bedrooms were great for my family. One of the rooms is smaller with twin beds for the kids and the other two rooms were almost identical - larger size master suites. The house is on a quite, nice street about a mile or two from the beach. It has a pool and a nice back yard for outdoor dining and hanging out. We highly recommend this house, especially for families coming to South Florida for a visit.

Owner's Response: We were so thankful for the kindness of our first renters. They allowed us to look at our home thru the vacation renter's eyes which led us to make a few changes. Thank you for all your suggestions and encouraging words.
