About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our guest condo is located on the Isle of Venice, just off Las Olas Boulevard. The Caravelle property is small and quiet (a tropical getaway) well-maintained with a parking space.

No stairs to climb. Well-stocked kitchen. Oriental rugs and comfy furnishings throughout - large windows and great views. King size bed, writing desk and great storage. TV's in both the LR and BR.

UNIQUE in our property, is a 'very' private patio just off the kitchen. It sits on the edge of the canal and is a perfect spot for dining, reading or just enjoying the sparkling water and watching the Kayaks and paddle board folks go by. No stress here! A ceiling fan and overhang make for outdoor comfort day round.

The courtyard pool is heated. There is a grill (gas shared poolside). Walk or bike easily to the beach or the shops/restaurants of Las Olas. This property is not appropriate for children. Off season pricing is available. Contact the owner for more information.

About Carolyn House

We are active Seniors and live year round in a nearby condo to this one. Our interest includes travel, boating, Model A club, and croquet and I am in an all women's fishing club. Members of the history society and the art museum and more.... too much more!

Carolyn House purchased this condo in 1991

Why Carolyn House chose Fort Lauderdale

Love the weather year round and love the diversity here in Fort Lauderdale. There are so many fun activities and the water...amazing. There is a reason they call Fort Lauderdale the Venice of America.

This was our get-a-way property prior to moving here full time in 2006.

What makes this condo unique

Relax, take in the Ocean air and breathe deep. Our property is quiet and very special. Ground level location and a private terrace awaits you. Walk to the beach or to the shops and restaurants of Las Olas. Well furnished with an especially complete kitchen.

Lovely Condo...

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit staying here - wonderful location - walking distance into town (Las Olas Blvd.) & beach. Condo was extremely clean, private deck overlooking the lagoon, peaceful & quiet setting. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. Close to shopping, restaurants, boating & sightseeing. We will be back . .

Highly Recommend staying here!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for eight wonderful days! Excellent location, beautiful surrounding, the owners have stocked this unit with everything you could need or want. We have been vacationing in Fort Lauderdale area for 15 years and this by far was our best rental experience!! Everything from the location, the condo, the amenities, the owners, the caretakers and the view was all A++++++!! We plan on making this a regular summer rental and highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay!

Lovely holiday getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely condo over the Christmas holiday week. The place is very well maintained. You can tell that Carolyn and her husband love this unit and want their guests to be happy and comfortable.

From the first moment I requested information about this property, Carolyn was a delight to work with. She's easy going, while still attending to whatever details might be helpful.

We found the location to be very convenient, and enjoyed the intracoastal water view from our unit and our private patio. There are lots of good local restaurants. The beach is nearby, and of course, the pool is just steps from the patio door.

Easy - well cared for - highly functional - great location and good owners to work with. A winner!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review of our place. I never ask for reviews (because I do not like to do surveys)…too busy. But I really appreciate those that take the time. What a nice surprise and we look forward to seeing you again. We are embarking on a 8-12 month boat trip known as the "Great Loop" next week, but will be home next Dec. Meanwhile, I have a good back up team to keep my place and our hospitality the same as if I am here. (hopefully)

My husband & I rented this charming waterfront property for our 31st wedding anniversary. We had all the comforts of home - condo location was well situated (walking distance to beach & dining) extremely clean, fabulous views, fully equipped kitchen along w/upscale bedding. The owner, Carolyn was the perfect host & went above & beyond our expectations. True southern hospitality is what we arrived to. We couldn't have asked for anything more & will most definitely be coming back...

We Had the pleasure of staying at Caravelle from Oct-Dec. The condo had everything you could want extremely comfortable, the kitchen had every utensil you could think of. The balcony over looking the canal was a delight.

From the condo we walked each day, in the morning down Las Olas for coffee at our favourite bakery then after lunch a walk to the beach. We could also get the hop on hop off trolley at the end of the street to the Mall for a $1.

It truly is a great place to stay thankyou Carolyn and Harry we will see you next year
