Perfect family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This house has plenty of room, and some really great and unique amenities. It's located in a diverse suburban neighborhood, but you feel like you could be on a tropical island once you walk out the back door. The photos are accurate, so you know just what to expect. The salt water pool is absolutely wonderful - we swam every day. We also took advantage of the two person kayak to explore the river behind the house. We saw an amazing variety of wildlife: a bald eagle, egrets, turtles, an iguana and other cute little lizards, lots of fish, etc. It's also very convenient to any shopping you may need. We just needed a place to stay for a family event in Tamarac, but instead of booking a boring hotel that would be nothing but a place to sleep, we got a wonderful vacation. The owner is very responsive and a great communicator - really the perfect host. We felt very welcome and at home here - will definitely return!

Slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful all around experience. Pierre was very helpful and great to work with. The home was very clean. The high wood ceilings in the living and kitchen and dining area give the home a great vibe. The kids had so much fun playing in the pool. The deck is so very peaceful with an amazing sunset view. Our family loved the private beach. Absolutely recommend.

It was a good experience.

  • 3 of 5

Mr Vo was extremely accommodating and a delight to work with.

The pool was very nice. The house was clean and worked well for our family. The kitchen was beautiful. The bathrooms and furniture were clean and functional, but could use some updating. This was our first experience with rental property, so I had nothing to compare this to. It was a good experience.

Great backyard, terrace and pool, watch sunset

  • 4 of 5

Great backyard, terrace and pool, watch sunset every night. Quiet place with a kitchen well furnish especially for cooking outside with a BBQ and a cooking plate. The pool was great so is the spa. We took all of our meal outside in a convenient terrace near by the kitchen. Pierre the owner was really caring person while in our stay. Always answering our questions quickly. Great location nerby store for shopping and also grocery. Definitly YES i would recommend this place.

great house for a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled a family of six (4 adults and 2 kids, age 7 & 9) and truly enjoyed this house.

Wallmart and Publix only 5 min. away and a great residential neighbourhood. Lots of options for eating out or take away-meals.

Everything you need inside the house, even shampoo and soap.

The owner, will do his best to help you before and during your stay, just call him with your question 😊

We got delayed 24 hours on the way to the house, and Pierre offered us to stay an extra day. Great service!

The house is not new and sparkling, but full of charm.

The backyard is amazing, lot of plants to make you feel like you all alone in the tropics. Lots of seating for everyone.

The heated pool is big and deep, and the view of the waterway had us look for turtles, fish and ducks.

We used the kayak to go for a small trip up and down.

A great plus is the private beachclub access.

Easy and safe to park. The house has a big cooler and even beachtoys for the kids, perfect for a trip to the waves.

Only minus was that both kingsize beds has loud squeeky sounds.

We had a truly great vacation and would love to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lengthly precise comments , we found out why the bed was squeaky due to the off hook frame of the foot board ( bamboo) reinforced and positioned it back properly ! We're looking forward to see you again in the future !
