Last minute deals for Fall! For best rates & potential discounts proceed with inquiry. Owner will reply personally. Our beach bungalow is designed to accommodate couples or small parties wishing to enjoy the beach and Florida weather in the privacy of a single home setting. The garden atmosphere has a full size heated pool with LED color changing lights and hot tub with small waterfall. The huge great room overlooks the garden and sets you at ease the minute you enter. We consider it our dream home and our goal is provide a vacation home to the discerning guests who are looking for something special and will appreciate it as much as we do. Every appointment has been made with loving care. And best of all, you can walk one block to the beach or anywhere nearby -, the marina, multiple restaurants, shops and the local Briny's Pub where good pub fare, music and company awaits! This home is where elegance meets comfort - we are honored to share it with considerate and caring guests. Pack lightly; we've got the rest!!

Our 2 bedroom/2 bath home is perfectly situated to enjoy beach and all area activities. The 15x30 ft pool is surrounded by privacy fencing, tropical trees & foliage, with hot tub, awning covered table & chairs, sunning lounges, BBQ grill, garden swing, with pool floats, and Bch chairs, umbrellas, coolers, towels, sand toys, boogie boards, goggles, etc. it's a true private paradise. No elevators or searching for available lounges. Step outside & you're in the pool or enjoying a drink or meal beside it.

Inside you'll find every possible amenity a real home offers. The over sized great room overlooks the pool paradise and allows for watching the kids while enjoying a movie or checking your email.

Additional Amenities: For $4.95, 100 minutes land line calls to Europe can also be provided. (Over 100 mins, add .49 cents per minute)

Other Attractions & Activities: As an alternative to the Ft. Lauderdale airport, the Palm Beach airport is 35 minutes drive and has discounted fares. Since Pompano Beach is between Ft. Lauderdale and Boca Raton it is truly the best place to be to visit both. And should you want to explore Miami's South Beach, or dine at the world famous Joe's Stonecrab Restaurant, the drive is about 45 minutes south on I-95. The beautiful FL Keys is a 2 -4 hour drive depending how far you'd like to go, but John Pennekamp Park, with its snorkel trips and glass bottom boat trips is in Key Largo and could easily be a nice day’s trip. Key West at about 4 hours, but is surely worth it! If you'd like to combine your South Coast visit with a visit to the Orlando/Disney area, we have contacts there. Will be happy to provide you with their web site. (3-4 hour trip). No matter your interests, there is always plenty to do or not to do depending on your mood. Most guests end up walking the beach & hanging out by our private pool & garden.

Additional Rental Details: Children under 12 years of age are permitted, however, our pool is NOT fenced nor the home baby proofed. Security system beeps when doors are opened for safety.

All guests (excluding children) must be at least 25 years or older and a copy of a driver's license must be included in the reservation deposit.

About Natalie or Doug

Doug & I are the proud owners of an Appraisal Co. & our special beach & private pool house. It started as our stay-cation home while we cared for our elderly parents. We decided that sharing our home with other families would be paying it fwd as we've visited England, Scotland, Hawaii & Italy all in vac rentals. We have complete privacy w/every amenity. Given the close proximity to the ocean, over the past 12 years,we've met people from all over the world & become close friends with many. Most of our guests return year after year. We welcome our guests both new & previous with open arms. It's our sincere pleasure to provide a quality Bch house with the warmth of a real home away from home. When we say bring only your clothes & food, we mean it. The 2 things that all gsts seem to say is 'Wow-the pictures don't do it justice & we've never seen a vac rental with everything provided'. We set it up the way we'd want it. I'm such a stickler for cleanliness, that I have 4 sets of Linens which are sterilized & switched between each turnover up to the 4th time when we start over again. In 2005 we added a cabin in Helen, GA to be near our families in Atl & Greenville, SC. It's an amazing part of the Blue Ridge Mtns where the Appalachian Trail begins. Our dream was to spend our retired years in FL & the GA Mtns. But, retirement looks to be much further down the road than we'd hoped so the cabin is up for sale as a 2nd home completely furnished & in spotless condition enjoying a cup of coffee on the front porch rocking chairs overlooking Mt. Yonah in the mornings or a glass of wine at sunset. We're heartbroken to see it go after putting so much love into it. But, some nice couple may come along and know right away as did we that it was the perfect Mtn getaway for us & our families. We will be holding onto our beach bungalow until investors convince us new townhomes might be just right for us. For now, we'll look fwd to greeting you when you come to visit our home.

Natalie or Doug purchased this house in 2003

Why Natalie or Doug chose Greater Fort Lauderdale

Our home is very rare. Many older properties on the beach are condos, but our block is quiet & all single family homes. Its only short walk to the very private 4th St beach entrance. The extremely private tropical pool area is quiet and relaxing. No elevators up & down to get to pool or bch. Every convenience & amenity provided. All for the price of a hotel room. Pictures will never do it justice. Come see it & enjoy it at your leisure. You'll be as pleasantly surprised as are all our personally greeted guests. We meet your every need! No large property mgmt companies for us! Your comfort and care is our #1 objective. Those co's have too many properties & not enough staff to care for them. Our caretaker Rick can't do enough should you need his services. We are a family here for yours.

What makes this house unique

Standing in our driveway, you can see the beach entrance. The floor plan is perfect for couples or families w/ children. The completely private pool & garden allow enjoyment of the whole garden atmosphere. As a frequent user of vacation rentals, we've set it up the way we'd want it to be. Nothing forgotten & everything at your hands reach. Most guests are over joyed when they see the home & comment frequently that we've thought of everything. We love being in the memory making business!

A relaxing beach house

  • 5 of 5

At Natalie's beach house you're set for a relaxing time by the pool or beach. Natalie is a wonderful host that makes you feel comfortable and makes sure you have everything you need to have a good time. She brought toys, books, and even a pack n play, so my daughter could sleep in. We had an early flight and she didn't hesitate to accommodate us right away. Wonderful stay!!!

Great beach/pool house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay! The house is larger than the pictures show. It was clean, with lots of towels, soap and laundry. Kitchen was fully stocked, with spices and other condiments. Natalie was a great host, she provided my daughters toys, which was a nice gesture. Walk to the beach was short, the pool was great! We were very happy with our stay, we will definitely return in the future.

Probably the best place to stay in Pompano Beach

  • 5 of 5

So I was curious to see if this place was still being rented, & I'm so excited to see that it is!!

Me & my wife actually rented this house for our honeymoon back in Nov 2013, and remembering what a magical stay it was, I am wanting to give this place a glowing review even this many years later. WE LOVED THIS PLACE!! We dream of coming back here every year, & hopefully will soon. The location is quiet & away from busy avenues, the house is very well laid out, & furnished. I remember it was difficult finding a place that offered a private hot tub without going outside our financial limits, & this has that AND a heated pool! Plus the master bedroom has the fancy roman tub, to top it off. And I can't fail to mention that Natalie is a fantastic host & offered us a great deal, & was definitely better than dealing with a non-personal company. I can't say we were the best of tenants, considering we ended up setting off the smoke alarm & the fire department showed up, ugh. But even then, she was very understanding!

I can personally guarantee that you will not regret your stay here. And if you do, well..... it's probably your fault lol.

Beach, Pool and Formidable Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month swimming, playing and enjoying the sun. Natalie is a wonderful host, she provides all you could possibly need and more! Very convenient to the beach, entertainment and conveniences. The pool is beautiful and the outdoor hot tub is a treat in the moonlight. We loved that we could entertain guests who also wished to escape the cold with the lovely spare room.

Highly recommend this rental for a winter escape :)

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay!

This house was the perfect home-base for our beach tour of South Florida. We went to Miami (South-Beach), Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale beaches. We also did an airboat tour. Mornings and evenings were spent at this comforable home-away-from-home. The pool was great for evening swimming. I did my morning swimming in the ocean, which is a few minute walk. Great way to start the day!

The first time I talked to Natalie, I knew I was making a good choice. I have rented several houses with nice owners, but she was tops in my book.

The listing is accurate

The property is very clean and well maintained

Customer service was excellent

I highly recommmend this property

Thanks for the priceless family memories, Natalie!
