Celebrating my mother’s 80th birthday at the Eckstein’s Beach house in Ft Lauderdale!
My parents came from Lima, Peru; my sister and cat Simba from Ft Lauderdale; my wife, my son and brother and sister came from Washington, DC and my other son from Colorado. We traveled from near and far and couldn’t of have picked a better house than this one; it was as described on the listing and better. It was located half a block from the beach (with lifeguard), had a nice pool (with removable safety fence) and outdoor area surrounded by lush vegetation. The part we all really enjoyed about the house was the distribution of the living, dining rooms and kitchen. It was open and the large dining table was a great place to gather throughout the day. The bedrooms were large and beds comfortable. The A/C was great even on those hot and humid days. The house was very clean and had all the amenities one would wish for and more: large new washer and dryer, large TV in living room and individual ones in bedrooms, ceiling fans, BBQ and plenty of charcoal, numerous board games for rainy days, beach towels galore, cooking utensils and spices and comfortable couches for napping!.
The location was also very convenient to Publix food market, CVS pharmacy, Galleria Mall for well know retail shopping stores, numerous restaurants including The Capital Grille (Birthday dinner), boat trip along the water canals on the Jungle Queen and a 20 minute ride from airport($25).
What also made this rental experience very pleasant was the ease of communication, clarity of information and swift response from the owner (Craig) and management (Mandy). We all thoroughly enjoyed this house and would definitely return as well as highly recommend it to any other families looking for a complete beach rental property with all the amenities and conveniences of home.
Thank you Craig and Camilla for opening your house to us!
