Overview

Greater Fort Lauderdale House Rental Photos and Description

3 bed 3 bath private pool vacation home in beautiful beach neighborhood

This beautiful beach house is just one block from one of the nicest public access and most secluded beaches in South Florida, located in the prestigious Hillsboro Shores area. Completely furnished and updated, this three-bedroom/three-bath house comes with a private, large, completely fenced, tropically landscaped backyard.

Brand new impact glass slider doors in each bedroom open up to the large private backyard patio with a pool and Jacuzzi® that can be heated for an additional fee. The home also features a large great room and a breakfast area.

This completely furnished house offers many amenities including central air-conditioning, 3 brand new flat screen TV's, high speed cable internet with a secured wireless modem, 2 DVD players, surround-sound stereo system, a washer, dryer, local phone service, and all towels and linens. The kitchen comes with a smooth-top stove, a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and all pots, pans, and utensils.

UPDATE: We recently completed a large scale remodeling of the house. We completely renovated the 3rd bathroom, installing new marble floors throughout the 3rd bedroom and bathroom, installed a new washer/dryer, installed all new interior doors and 5 1/4 base boards, new interior paint, all new living room furniture, new plantation shutters on every window, ceiling fans and a new fence around the entire backyard.

We also just installed all brand new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and all new patio furniture and chairs for the backyard patio as well as a brand new stainless steel gas grill!

Wait to you see all the upgrades!

About Jon Zimmerman

I have been in the vacational rental industry for over 14 years as a property manager and owner. This property was my business partner and myself's first property so it holds a special place for me. We both live locally so if anything were to come up, we would be able to address any issue asap.

Jon Zimmerman purchased this house in 2003

Why Jon Zimmerman chose Greater Fort Lauderdale

It is a beautiful little home that has all of the amenities that a family would require on their beach vacation. It has a beautiful, secluded backyard with a jacuzzi that flows into a pool, 2 of the 3 bedrooms open up to the pool and it is a block from one of the nicest beaches in South Florida in a very safe, quiet neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

This is a very quaint home located in a very safe, quiet neighborhood just a few minute walk to the sand that has been a favorite of families since we bought it. The house is not very large, however it has a nice floor plan and a beautiful large fenced in backyard that surrounds the pool and hot tub, which seems to be a family favorite. The beach in this area is public, but feels like a private beach since you don't have to share it with big hotels or condos as there are predominately single family homes on the beach.

Terrific family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We returned last Saturday from a week at the Dow St House in Pompano Beach. The house had everything our family of three adults and three children (including a 6-month old) would need: a nice clean heated pool and spa, lovely backyard with patio seating for everyone, 3 well appointed bedrooms, nice living area, all just a block from a nearly deserted stretch of public beach. We cooked most meals at the house and enjoyed exploring the area, including a nice park just a few blocks away with a lighthouse and fishing pier. The new Pompano Beach park about 1 mile to the south was a nice surprise too, which has a really nice new playground, bathrooms, and walkways. The owner of the property was very easy to deal with and everything was well organized for our stay. We would stay here again.

House was clean, kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and utensils and beds were very comfortable. The fenced in yard was great for our dog and the neighborhood was very walkable. We had a very enjoyable stay.

It was simply perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say there wasn't anything to complain about. The property was as described; it was lovely. The pool was wonderful. Everything you could possible need was there and then some. The owner I dealt with, Jon, was a sweetheart. I had a scheduling snafu and Jon was able to accommodate us without hesitation. I just can't wait to go back next year. It was a fabulous experience without a doubt!!!
