About Mitch

Sue and Mitch . We just love Florida and this home is ideally located on the water close to everything.

Boating is our lifestyle and Mitch 'our Captain' does a fantastic job showing guests on our motor yacht the sights that you cannot see by land. Having his Captains license will assure that you will have a very safe cruise and in good hands.

Mitch purchased this house in 2007

Why Mitch chose Fort Lauderdale

Our home is located right off the New River on a large lot. Waterfront is the most important thing in having the right vacation rental and ours is ideally located close to major highways, beaches, downtown, airport, convention center and the cruise port and easy access to all amenities.

What makes this house unique

We are including a complimentary day cruise on our 52' motor yacht with all weekly rentals. We will take you up the 'New River' and meander in the inter-coastal waters to view the mansions and estates of many celebrities. This cruise if charter alone would cost $1500.00 but we are including it for free with all weekly rentals.

Nice home, pool and boat cruise were great

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the house. It was a perfect fit for our family get away. Pool was nice and we spent a lot of time in and around it. (Don't forget the insect repellant as the mosquitos are pretty aggressive)

Loved the boat cruise and afternoon on the water.

On the down side....I rented the van that is available with the house and that was a huge mistake. We did not find it acceptable for a number of reasons--age, safety, repair, and size.. I ended up parking it at the house the morning after arrival and renting an ADDITIONAL vehicle because I it was not what we expected.

Owner was slow to return deposit (over a month after prompting), and then docked the deposit for gas and parking for the Van.

Over all the house was as advertised and we had a good time..

We had 8 adults & 6 children staying at the home for our vacation. We were all comfortable & there was plenty of space for us. The backyard was great we enjoyed the pool everyday. The yacht cruise was awesome & the memories made priceless.

Beautiful, comfortable home!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable home; Perfect for a golfers getaway. The house is convenient to golf course, beach, restaurants and Casino. We (8 golfers) had plenty of room (comfortable beds) enjoyed relaxing around the pool and hot tub after 27 holes of golf. The one level layout of the home was good for us (no steps). This house would be convenient fro someone in a wheelchair or walker.

The boat cruise was the high-lite of our trip. Captain Mitch and Sue are great host. Seeing Ft Lauderdale on the water was an unforgettable experience.

I will be definitely rent this house again.

Clean, fun, everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely large property. It worked well for our family of 6 adults, and 4 children under age 4.

The owner was helpful and the yacht cruise a real treat for all. We enjoyed our stop on the cruise at the 15th Street Fisheries for dinner with good food and fish feeding entertainment for the kids.

You should bring your own books & toys for small children and may need to buy some pool floats or toys. Also, if you need their crib try to insure that it is set up before your arrival.

You will need a car and it took about 15 minutes to get to the lovely Fort Lauderdale beach. We rented the owners large van which has ample room but not all of the seat belts are working which was a bit of an issue with car seats. It was wonderful to have the owner pick us up and drop us back to the airport, which is about 10 minutes away.

We ate most of our meals outside, never needing the formal dining room. I would recommend this home and we all had a wonderful week vacation there.

Unbelievable experience Casey M

  • 5 of 5

This house perfectly describes what one would expect vacationing in south Florida. It had a very exotic yet suprisingly home like feel to it. From the minute you walk in it feels like the vacation has officialy started. The rooms are elegant but not to the point where you're afraid to touch everything which covers alot of ground if you have kids. The patio and pool are amazing and obviously the center point of the home. The waterfall and the light features make you not want to leave the house for any reason and both sides of the back yard are fenced off so you have all the privacy you need. It gave a very tropical feel which made the stay that much better. Its the small things that make this place even better too such as the kitchen was very easy to use, there are multiple refrigerators, the A/C worked perfectly and wasnt complicated, the controls for the pool could not have been more self explanitory, and it was just quiet. The location was a major factor as well. It is less than 10 minutes from the airport, there are numerous grocery and liquer stores up the streets so it wasnt a big journey to pick up dinner. It took me 19 minutes to drive from the house to get on Atlantic Coast Highway which means less than 20 minutes to get to the beach with out taking freeways. Its literally a straight shot to get to the beach and its the nice part too. The surrounding neighborhood is very nice as well which means you ARE NOT driving through a questionable part of town simply to get a pizza. The cruise is what put the whole experience over the top for me. We went on a nice, low speed cruise through the river which took you right throught the heart of downtown and each house and yacht just kept getting better and better the farther you went. We ended up in a beautiful bay surrounded by celebrity homes and were able to jump in the water for a bit. Sue is also a real estate agent so she was pointing out celebrity homes the whole way which is just mind blowing when you see these places. Their yacht was extremely well equipped and very welocming and both Mitch and Sue are seasoned Captains. You truly got the feel that you were in the right hands the whole time and it was the highlight of my trip. Overall this was an incredible trip whcih only got better as it went on. I WILL be returning here with a much smaller group and i will be the first to tell you that the price tag this comes with is very comprable and worth every penny.
