Overview

Fort Lauderdale Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Recently renovated villa located on canal off New River with private, heated swimming pool in quiet, relaxed neighborhood. House also includes private dock that allows easy ocean access for all boaters.

It is an ideal location to explore not only Fort Lauderdale but also Miami and nearby Palm Beach, both of which are only 25 minutes away by car.

The three bedroom, two bath villa includes poolside deck overlooking canal as well as new fitness room that includes a host of stationary exercise machines. Two kayaks and two bicycles are included in the rental.

By car, boat or bicycle the famous Fort Lauderdale River Walk, where restaurants, bars, museums and shops abound, is easily accessible.

The well maintained Fort Lauderdale beachfront is a short distance as is the Fort Lauderdale International Airport. The thriving Miami Beach nightlife is only a 25-minute drive.

Nearby recreational facilities abound, including more than 40 golf courses within a 15 minute drive.. There are exceptional tennis facilities in Fort Lauderdale as well as scuba diving, windsurfing, dinghy and catamaran sailing and a host of other activities associated with tropical living.

Fishing aficionados have the best of both worlds nearby. Besides being able to fish for snook from the dock (in season of course) sailfish and numerous other species are a big-catch away via a deep sea charter or boat rentals available at Fort Lauderdale marinas. Some of the world's best bass, tarpon and other fresh water fish are easy prey in the Everglades, which is a 20 minute drive to the west. Otherwise the canals and New River also are rife with game fish.

The Everglades National Park is also only a 30 minute drive. The Seminole Hard Rock Casino and entertainement complex is only a 10 minute drive.

.With the pool and dock on the backside of the property, the front side includes a secluded, tranquil tropical garden with fountain and small pond.

Tiled patio around the pool and gas grill make for ideal setting for outdoor barbecues.

For families with children there is a table soccer game and crib for infants.

The fitness room includes a variety of stationary exercise machines including cycling, abdomen bench, bowflex and weight set.

It is very easy to take the bikes and cycle to the beach or visit downtown Fort Lauderdale where there is the Riverwalk, museums, art gallieries, shops and restaurants.

For shoppers the famous Sawgrass Mills outlet mall is only 15 minutes by car.

About Joe Kirwin

I am freelance writer who fell in love with Florida and all its unique environmental and cultural life during my first visit more than 30 years ago.

Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, I have been a regular visitor to Fort Lauderdale for the past 25 years. Before buying the villa, I kept my sailboat in Fort Lauderdale and sailed regularly to the Florida Keys and the Bahamas.

Joe Kirwin purchased this villa in 2000

Why Joe Kirwin chose Fort Lauderdale

I chose to buy a vacation home in Fort Lauderdale as it is the boating capital of North America.

What makes this villa unique

I enjoy nothing more than getting up early and taking the kayak out on the canal down to the New River, where there is a nearby wildlife refuge. Along the way there are numerous beautiful wading birds and other wildlife. Upon a return I take a swim and have breakfast by the pool. Later I usually take the bicycle to the beach. After a walk along the beach I usually head over to the Borders Book Store on Sunrise Boulevard for a coffee on the canal. Later I cycle through downtown Fort Lauderdale via the Riverwalk where there are numerous cafes and restaurants as well as a great museum.

Other days trips that I enjoy immensely include the Oleta State Park in north Miami (great kayaking), Everglades National Park, Key Biscayne and Palm Beach.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults/3 teenagers) had two wonderful weeks of vacation in this beautiful home - absolutely amazing. The house is very clean and very weel equiped with everything you need to make a perfect stay. Big pool, beautiful garden and we had great joy of the kayaks and all the iguanas who visited the place.
We got seen and experienced a lot both in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, not to forget Everglades and Key West.
Easy to book the house and Joe send a lot of information before your stay and answers questions during the stay if necessary.
We can highly recommend this house

Pictures dont do this place justice. Awesome Home for vacation

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutly perfect for a Fort Lauderdale/Miami vacation. Joe the owner is very helpfull and great to deal with. Right from the time we pulled up to the home we knew this was a perfect place for vacation. The home is very clean, well stocked with everything you will need. It cools great, and its in the perfect location. This home allows you TOTAL privacy from the front to the back. Pool is clean, well kept and awesome to swim in all day long. We went to most places Joe recommend, they were great just as he suggested. This home made our vacation a "dream vacation" Again, the home as had re modeling since the pictures above were taken. Very nice place. Oh yes, the friendly iguanas that came to the back yard daily were a treat to see!!

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Excellent place to stay for our family. We enjoyed the optimum seclusion in the midst of a residential neighborhood right off Davie Blvd near I-95. Beautifully landscaped front and back yards. Private pool with numerous lounge chairs and private access to the canal for kayaking made for the perfect place. We were close enough to get to the beach, Las Olas Blvd, restaurants, shopping, deep sea fishing, IFGA, Sunday worship at Living Waters Community Church, or anything you would choose to do in a matter of minutes. Nice patio area to grill out and enjoy dinner by the pool. Perfect place for those that want to relax and enjoy the Florida sunshine.

What a deal ... everything you would want in a vacation all wrapped up in one convenient quiet spot. The home is very well maintained and roomy. It has all the amenities you need to enjoy a great week. The pool is beautiful and clean - a joy to just hang around. I will definitely rent this home again.
