About Walter Cunningham Owner- Member since August 2004

I purchased Coral Ridge Twin Villas in 2002 and have been renting these villas as short term vacation rentals since 2004.

The properties in my inventory are all owned by myself and my brother and a business partner and we take great pride in making sure all of our guests are personally welcomed when they arrive at any one of our properties.

We hope you will come to Fort Lauderdale to enjoy our sunshine and all the wonderful activities South Florida has to offer.

Why Walter Cunningham Owner- Member since August 2004 chose Downtown

My properties are Guaranteed to be 100% Legally Operated Vacation Rentals - No worries of your vacation being cancelled due to City of Fort Lauderdale Code Enforcement shutting down the house you have rented.

As of November 1, 2015 and updated January 31, 2017, all vacation rentals located in the City of Fort Lauderdale must be licensed by the City of Fort Lauderdale as a vacation rental. All of my properties have every license required to legally operate as a vacation rental including the new City of Fort Lauderdale Licenses. My Certificate of Occupancy Number is 1500808 and all licensed vacation rental are required to post this license number in their advertisement.

Unlicensed vacation rental properties are subject to closure, fines, penalties and cancellation of reservations.

I am licensed by the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations, The Broward County Tourist Development Department and the Florida Department of Revenue, The City of Fort Lauderdale Business License, Broward County Business License and City of Fort Lauderdale Vacation Rental License . I am happy to provide copies of my license as they are required to be posted in the properties. These are the six licenses required by every vacation rental.

Part of the new City Ordinance limits occupancy to a maximum of two people per bedroom excluding children under the age of 13. Therefore, a three bedroom property has a maximum occupancy of six guests excluding children under the age of 13. If the home you are considering, is advertising anything more than two people per bedroom, then they are clearly violating the law.

So if in doubt when looking for vacation rentals, ask the property manager or owner.

Recent stay at Islamorada

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the twin villas of Coral Ridge. This is a very nice property, in a great location, well furnished and maintained, with very tropical landscaping. The house is close to the beach, and also has a heated swimming pool. It is within walking distance to the Coral Ridge Mall, where there is a Publix super market, AMC movie theater, post office, and a bank. The owners of the twin villas take great pride in their property, and were excellent to deal with.

Awesome. Best so far in Fort Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my wife and two adult children. We have been going to FLL at Xmas for many years. We have always had good accommodations but this one was the best. It was clean. Kitchen was well stocked with all the tools to cook. Gas BBQ was clean and worked. Plenty of comfortable seating inside and out. Beds were comfortable. Not stingy on pillows. Climate control worked perfectly. Quiet neighborhood with easy access to the beach and grocery stores. Would definitely return, hopefully for a longer stay.

FANTASTIC :-) property in a fantastic area

  • 5 of 5

We simply loved staying in this house:-) Well equipped, clean, very organized and placed in a quiet area close to shopping. The pool area was really nice and we loved the small cosy corners where we enjoyed a glass of wine. Enough space for our 5 person family visiting in week 29, 2016 from Denmark (Europe). We really want to recommend this property! :-)

Best regards Hecht Petersen Family

Great Villa!!

This rental is really as advertised. Beautifully decorated, quiet, modern, clean and with all amenities you need. It is located in a beautiful neighbourhood near beaches and all the action. Walter is a great host leaving us a bottle of wine and fresh flowers for our arrival. The instructions, payment and checkin and checkout were a smooth and easy process.

We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this rental to anyone.

Merci beaucoup pour ce bel accueil!! Quelle belle expérience!!
