'Casa Del Sol' is a small, intimate, resort/marina with five one bedroom apartments and one poolside efficiency apartment located in the heart of the Fort Lauderdale waterfront district near the Sunrise bridge..
Casa Del Sol is in walking distance of shopping, theatres, restaurants, and, of course, the famous Fort Lauderdale Beach. Our efficiency condos in this charming waterfront resort offers vacationers a chance to experience the Sun and Fun of a tropical island with the convenience of a city and the ambiance of a small intimate resort.
Fort Lauderdale is the cultural center of South Florida with live theater, jazz clubs, the elegant River Walk, and perhaps one of the finest beaches in the world. Restaurants abound. Nearly every cuisine is represented including Thai, Indian, Italian, French, German, Mexican, etc. Fresh seafood is of course featured in all cuisine.
Los Olas is five minutes away. On it is Cafe de Paris where you can sit in a typical French sidewalk cafe and experience the ultimate in French Haute cuisine.
Guests at Casa Del Sol gather poolside between five and six for sundowner cocktails. Often this event turns into either a group evening out or a covered dish cook out. We love families and well-behaved youngsters, and are pet welcome with some restrictions.
Deep-sea fishing, parasailing, and boat rentals are all available nearby. We have a hot tub all to use, wireless internet connection, DVD players with several movies on the property to check out and view.
The famous Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi or Water Bus picks up just 12 minute walk away and takes you to Los Olas, RiverWalk, 17th Street, and Hooters to the North. At the water bus terminal it is possible to take a boat to Miami's South Beach (extra cost). Waterbus is only $5 per day for unlimited travel in and around Fort Lauderdale.
Casa Del Sol is a 15-minute, inexpensive, cab ride from the International Airport. Rentals cars are available but many guests do not rent cars. Bicycles are provided for guests use at Casa Del Sol. We have bicycles for guests use. We can arrange car rentals. Our apartment will accommodate four adults or a family of up to six persons.
Apartment is equipped with hair dryer, iron, coffee maker, and Internet connection in addition to amenities listed elsewhere. French normally Spoken January to May at Casa Del Sol.
Fort Lauderdale offers one the culture of a city like London or New York but it retains a small town feel. Casa Del Sol is located on one of the most picturesque parts of the waterway system.
We enjoyed the warm hospitality, the location on the water, and the lovely pool. The social hour most evenings was a great way to learn about things to do in the Fort Lauderdale area, and chat with interesting people. Thank you, Ed and Ona.
I stayed at the beautiful Casa del Sol for about a week and it was one of the most relaxing place I've ever stayed in Fort Lauderdale! I had my two (small dogs) with me and they were comfortable staying there as well...I'm just extremely glad they allowed dogs but I never knew how welcoming they would be - truly welcoming! The property is easily accessed & I walked to/from the Galleria and you can actually walk to the beach if you wanted. We had a cookout where the owners and all the residents joined...it was like a family atmosphere. I loved it & I'll return again and again! Thank you Ed & Ona!!!
We have just returned from a stay at Casa del Sol. This was a realxing, intimate and very friendly place. We enjoyed the friendship with fellow vacationers as we sat and talked at dinner. Ed took us all out on his boat and gave us a first class tour of the Fort Lauderdale waterways - all the way to the ocean. I thought that was a really nice gesture to take the time to make all of us feel right at home. If you are looking for a relaxing, non-stress time away from the grind of daily life while in a beautiful setting, I highly recommend this place.
Casa Del Sol is a seven unit apartment building that has been converted into a hotel. It is located in a residential area of Ft. Launderdale, Florida, convenient to the Ft Lauderdale Galleria, supermarkets, drug stores, and the Intercoastal Water Taxi. The owners of the property have created a unique environment in that, every evening, around 5:30 pm or 6:00 p.m. any guest who finds himself around the property, gathers in the patio with pot luck cheese, crackers, fruit and wine. This "social hour" lasts until guests either bring their dinner out to cook on the communal bar-be-que, retreat to their individual apartments to prepare dinner, or go out to have dinner at a local restaurant. We have never experienced such a pleasant environment anywhere else where we have stayed and we found it interesting and thoroughly enjoyable.
During the time that we stayed there we met guests from New York, New Jersey, Kansas, Ohio, and Massachusetts. Several of the couples were there for stays of two months; one guest had been coming every year for ten years, another for nine years.
Other amenities that we found to be helpful are a set of washer/dryer machines for the use of guests, free use of bicycles as well as free local and long distance telephone calls.
I do not write many reviews, but also rely on them from previous travelers. My wife and I stepped out of our usual "box" on this trip, and boy are we glad we did. Granted this place will not be for someone looking for the "ocean view / wild tiki bar atmosphere". If you are looking for clean, relaxing, centrally located, and intimate setting this is your place. Easy to local beaches, 1/2 hour to Miami or Palm beach and everything in between. We enjoyed a busy day out and looked forward to our evenings in a awesomely kept pool, and secure patio. Not some where you would take the gang of kids, but conversations and friendships from worldwide guests and locals, not mentioning the outstanding waterway views made this a special retreat we hope to return to. Thanks Ed, hope we didn't let the cat out of the bag! We can't wait to return!!
My husband and I had not been to Florida in a couple of years. Casa Del Sol was a wonderful welcome back. The unit we rented was very nice and clean. The owner, Ed, was always around; very friendly. All of the other staff, from Nick (the Manager) and the cleaning crew, were all very helpful and eager to help or answer any questions. I would also like to note to future renters that Cas Del Sol is very pet friendly. We are actually planning another trip in September and hopefully we can go back to Casa Del Sol. Thank you for a pleasant stay.
Casa Del Sol is located just North of the upscale Galeria Mall. There are 5 world class restaurants in the mall in addition to the best food court I have ever seen. No fast food chains found there
There is a new Publix Super Market. a Starbucks, a pharmacy and a bank. All this is 10 minute walk and 4 minute bike ride away.
We do have bicycles for our guests to use at their own risk.
The beach is just 8 minutes past the mall. A car is convenient but not necessary if you do not mind a 10 minute walk.
