Covenant Properties has grown to become one of the larger, well-respected property management companies in the area. We offer quality, luxury homes to the families that are looking for a home away from home at reasonable rates and managed professionally. These homes or villa apartments are typically one to five bedrooms, most with upscale amenities such as a pool, waterfront and near one of our pristine beaches. The properties provide a wonderful venue for families that are tired of the typical resort they would have to share with many others that may or may not be considerate those around them. Our goal is to have all of our guests have a great time experiencing the closeness of friends and family with none of the downside.

Our mission is to provide accommodations and services that exceed the expectations of our guests and to make their South Florida experience one that is filled with cherished memories.

Why Jan Brain chose Fort Lauderdale

This home is located in 'The Landings' which is one of the most upscale areas of Fort Lauderdale with all million dollar homes. This home has five bedrooms and is perfect for the larger family or group. We have just upgraded much of the home such as the living room with leather Natuzzi chairs and sofa as well as the HDTV. Two bedrooms have new queen bed suites and the home has a new central air conditining system. The view of the waterway from the lanai and pool deck is spectacular as you are just a few hundred yards from the intracoastal which connects to the ocean. This home is also just a five minute drive from the beautiful Lauderdale-by-the-Sea beach and world-famous Fort Lauderdale Fishing Pier. This home is absolutely the best value for a large group in the area.

Guestbook comments from the manager


What a beautiful home. It looked exactly like the website. The furnishings, decor were very attractive and the home is very well maintained. The view is fantastic!

We travelled with 2 teenagers who were kept busy between playing volleyball in the pool,, a snorkeling trip and shopping. We also enjoyed just reading and relaxing poolside on the lovely deck.

The location is very convenient to great shopping, sites and restaurants. There were lots of guides and brochures available to help us along.

We BBQ'd a few times and found everying we needed for fabulous family dinners including lovely dinnerware and a Publix grocery store five minutes away.

It was great meeting Jan and Tom who are very hospitable and gracious hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed.

We hated to leave but had to come back home! Hope to visit again next year.

Thanks Jan and Tom!

Great place for a small staff retreat

  • 5 of 5

Six of us on a staff team take a retreat every year and decided to go somewhere warm. This lovely house on the canal in northern Fort Lauderdale met our needs beautifully. We decided to cook all our meals there and the kitchen was well enough equipped to do so. Internet connection was great and allowed for online meeting participation. Everything was clean and comfortable. If more people were willing to share a room, up to eight could meet and stay there very easily. There were several places in the house and on the patio for meeting, so we moved around throughout the week. If you wanted to eat out at restaurants, there were many to choose from within a 10-minute drive.

Perfect location for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome for our family. Kids loved the pool and the adults enjoyed relaxing on the patio. Location was perfect. Minutes from the beach in a quiet neighborhood. We had 9 people and there was plenty of room for all of us. 3 bathrooms with 3 showers was a huge plus.Tom met us just after we arrived and welcomed us to the house. A very nice fruit basket was waiting for us, and even a little sign welcoming our family. Would definitely come back if we ever get the chance.

Not as expected.

  • 2 of 5

The home was perfect in terms of location and size but certainly not as advertised. I regret not calling the property manager but I had not wanted to spend my vacation on the phone and relocating 10 people would have cost us a day of our limited vacation. The air conditioning system is very dated and it was very warm it the home, especially at night. When we went to turn the AC down there was a note saying not to go below 72 °F. I could not even imagine staying there in warmer months. The house smelled of mold and mildew. The grass was not mowed when we arrived. The front door was very difficult to open making it a fire hazard. One of the bathroom doors was off the hinge and my father fixed it. When we wanted to make milkshakes for the kids - both blenders were broken. The "games" for the kids was just a collection of game pieces and never a complete set. Some of the condiments left in the home seemed as if they had been there for years. We had a good time because we were together and the back yard was lovely but I would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: In response to these guests, we are very sorry about the inconvenience they experienced. We would point out that we make clear to all of our guests that this is an older home in a very upscale neighborhood but priced accordingly. We do have many other homes that are newer but command higher rates. As managers of 14 properties for over eight years we pride ourselves on great service (check all the previous reviews which are mostly all 5 star), but we were never called about any of these problems which we would have addressed immediately. First of all, the air conditioning system is only two years old and we have not had any complaints from other travelers. Many guests leave the doors open and, of course the home takes a while to cool when there is a large group going in and out. Residential central air conditioning is not like hotel commercial units that can handle large areas. Also we do periodic tests for mold and mildew on our properties and the house recently passed with no problem. Sticking or off-track doors could have been taken care of by just calling us as we have a staff to take care of any issues such as this.. Our lawn service mowed the lawn the day after their arrival as contracted which is every ten days. We just checked and both blenders are working fine so there must have been operator error on their part. Unfortunately some guests are not respectful of items by losing game pieces and we try and replace these games when we are informed. We do ask our guests to let us know of any problems or concerns so we can respond which is the reason we maintain such a high rating for all our properties. I would like to point out that these guests also ruined an expensive comforter on one of our queen beds with large food stains and they were charged for a replacement. It would seem this may be their motivation for this two star review. All we ask is that travelers read the other reviews for this home which are almost all five stars. Tom and Jan B

I want to take a minute or two and write a review on this amazing experience that me and my family just witnessed. Me and my family rented this amazing house from Jan. She's a very welcoming and easy tenant to work with. Me and my family a group of 9 stood in this house for about a week. There was Plenty of rooms so no one got in each other's way. Super clean so I didn't have to worry about the kids playing on the floor. The view, the patio, the warmness of the house itself sold me. Because of the hospitality that I received you can bet that in the near future me and my family will be returning again.
