About the property

3BR Tropical Pool House in Fort Lauderdale, Steps to the Beach! – Sleeps 10

This 3BR/2 and a half bathroom with den is just steps to famous Ft. Lauderdale beaches and beachfront parks.

Located in an excellent neighborhood called Lauderdale Beach one block east of AIA/Ocean Drive, among established and grand Ft. Lauderdale homes is less than 60 steps to the sand and minutes from great shops and restaurants. This home is perfect for sophisticated getaways in an impeccable part of town!


Inside, you’ll find a breezy, open-concept home with dual living areas. The first has comfy sofa seating and a large flat screen TV with cable and DVD for entertainment after the beach. The second has a sweet daybed, which seats 3 and, come night time, sleeps 2. A TV with cable and a collection of board games makes this a great family room.

A step up from the living room brings you to the large open space kitchen and dining room. Here a large rustic table and chairs seat 8.

Opening onto the dining area, the kitchen is newly updated with granite countertops and stainless appliances. The white cupboards and bar/prep with 3 barstools make the space welcoming, bright and airy.

The kitchen is open to the second living space as well, so it truly serves as the center of the house.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, twin trundle and a large TV with cable for late night viewing. There is a small en suite bathroom with a pedestal sink and tub/shower combo.

The second bedroom boasts 2 queen size beds and a small TV with cable, and the second bath has a pedestal sink and shower. A large window provides lots of light.

The backyard is delightful with a brand new fresh water pool and pool deck for sunbathing. Fenced and private, there is lots of dappled sunlight through both the tall trees and the two umbrellas on the patio. Lounge chairs, tables and chairs sit among lush flowering shrubs, a lovely lawn and Florida blue skies.


Our house is located in an older, established, quiet and safe neighborhood of multi-million dollar properties, making it ideal for families. Take evening strolls among tree-lined street reminiscent of moss-draped “Old Florida.”

Or, take a walk to the beach. It’s a short distance to two beachfront parks and other Florida beaches. When you get hungry, or want to pick up souvenirs, restaurants and shopping are both within walking distance, as well.

You may choose to ditch your car for your entire vacation, but if you do bring a vehicle, this home provides driveway parking for up to 3 cars.

Beautiful Beach house in Fort Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Salty Tortuga beach house. It was a short walk to the beach that was never crowded during our stay. The house was extremely clean and comfortably held the eight of us with room to spare. We often enjoyed the heated pool and lovely private back yard. It has many restaurants and shopping options close by. I would love to go back or stay at another one of Jennifer’s properties. We had the pleasure of meeting her and she was a kind person who was informative and helpful.

Amazing beach house, area and close to everything! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the home. It's steps to the ocean down a short path, beautiful neighborhood with million dollar homes, safe, clean, owners were fantastic! They were so helpful and always available for suggestions and recommendations-- great people and can tell Jen really cares about guest experience. We will definitely be coming back and referring our friends. It's in a perfect spot, so close to airport and dining and shopping! Thank you so much!!

This is a great bungalow a block from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with two adult sons stayed here while visiting Ft. Lauderdale. We would stay here again! It was clean, comfortably furnished and a block from the beach and right off the main route A1A. So getting around was easy. The kitchen had what we needed. Great Place!

Kite Surfing & Diving right off the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Yep...that's right! Hooked up the kite in the afternoon and scuba tank in the morning for 3 days straight. Beautiful beach, very light crowds. Very close to many nightly entertainment options. This place was perfect for 3 bachelors - large TV and cold fridge for the beer. Thinking of booking a week with the family next...great place to spend the entire day on the beach.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here on a last minute getaway from NC.... One word that describe this place "Awesome." Not only was the place very clean but seconds from the beach. We were in walking distance to restaurants, groceries and a beautiful secluded park. Why would you stay in a stuffy hotel when you can rent an awesome house? We will be back.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for 1 week with our well behaved Siberian cat. I needed to be in Ft Lauderdale for a minor medical procedure so the intention of our stay unfortunately was not beach and fun. My procedure turned out to be much more complicated (and painful) than anticipated -- not fun to experience away from home with a threat of a hurricane on the way. Luckily, this turned out to be a haven for us. The home is small but much bigger somehow than it looks. Lovely kitchen and island and a back room area plus two bedrooms and baths. Everything was clean, warm and felt very welcoming.

The first day, a thunderstorm blew out our cable settings -- I messaged the realtor and within seemingly minutes (?) the owner's husband showed up and cheerfully fixed the problem. He offered to help should there be any other problems. The last day, our flight was delayed. I was very uncomfortable and not looking forward to sitting in the airport for several hours in pain and with a small critter. The owner popped in and assured us it was no problem to stay a bit longer.

I can't say enough about this lovely home and the kind owners. Highly recommend !

About Jennifer Wetstein Amit

When I first met my husband, he sent me this poster. Shortly afterwards, my former CEO sent a picture of it hanging in his office to the entire company. Since that time it hangs in most homes we own as a reminder that life is short and to "get busy living, or get busy dying" .. Allow me to introduce ourselves, my name is Jennifer and along with my husband Alon we created Salty Bungalows for families like ours that want to enjoy the beachlife and stay in a private residence. We moved to Lauderdale beach in 2014 with our two small children Luke and Soleil. Tired of them watching tv and being indoors, we decided it was time to experience the beachlife - golfcarts to dinner, walks on the sand, kitesurfing, kayaking, surfing, snorkling, paddleboarding, and taking time to see the sun rise and set.

Our mission is to create "barefoot chic" and eclectic spaces that can be playful, while seducing all senses. We want our guests to have the 5 star luxury hotel experience, but with the additional freedom and flexibility and of course space a private home provides. And with delivery dudes just a phone call away, you can have your room service too! All homes offer on demand entertainment, wifi, and equipped with most everything you should need to make this salty bunglaow your home away from home.

We are Ft. Lauderdale locals, happy to help in any way that we can make your visit to our special town and in your salty bungalow a trip you wont forget. So just remember that Life is Short, Travel Often, Live your Dream, and Share your Passion!

The Tortuga was our first property, and originally intended for us to live in. Its super charming and quaint, surrounded by tons of flowers and really tranquil. There is a pathway outside the front door that leads you straight to the ocean
