Overview

Central Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

LOCATION- LOCATION-LOCATION

Have your morning coffee by the pool, in the Gazebo overlooking the dock and the boats, or sit at the pool which has sheltered and shady areas, palm trees and tropical plants. Take a chair from the pool (remember to put it back) and have your coffee on the dock by the canal, it's a pretty spot cleaned twice a day with the tides. Want to go further afield, walk to the beach (10 mins) thru' the little village with it's beach bars, the Red Dog, the Parrot, and Primanti's Pizza. Try the Pizza Deluxe or have one of their famous Primanti sandwiches with everything, including the french fries in the sandwich. Upstairs you can have Thai food or have coffee, sandwiches or an all day breakfast at one of the waterfront coffee shops.

On Sunrise, 2 mins away, are Franco and Vinnie's (Italian) or the Cantina (Mexican with good happy hour prices) or if you want coffee and croissant, walk over the ICW bridge (5 Min), there is a little French Bakery and cafe just over the bridge on the right. On the same side of the street you'll find Publix and Starbucks, and on the opposite side the Galleria Mall, with shops, restaurants and a great food court.

You can walk south on A1A to Beach Place, more restaurants and shops, but if you want to go further you'll need transport. Even if you have a car, take the #40 bus, right outside the gate by the 24/7 – 7/11, it will take to to Las Olas, with all it's fine dining, take the bus back, no worries. The office has timetables for all buses. If you like outdoor markets, the Swap Shop is west on Sunrise, loads of parking, $3 or $4 all day. Don't want to drive, the #36 bus will take you right to the door. Thurs Sat & Sun are the best days. Continue west on Sunrise and you will come to Sawgrass Mills, also on the #36 route, it's enormous, wear walking shoes.

Relax on Monday mornings with free coffee and donuts by the pool. Pool towels are available at no charge, just bring your sun tan lotion. Have a good time, and enjoy sunny Fort Lauderdale and her beautiful beaches.

The condominium is located on a canal, between the Intracoastal Waterway and the beach. The beach is a five-minute walk, as are the Galleria Mall, and at least a dozen restaurants. A Convenience store, open 24hrs, and public transport, are just around the corner. A new Publix Grocery Store has opened within a 10 min walk. A car is not really necessary at this location.

The condominium is on the second floor of a two-story building. The unit is 1200sq/ft with dining area, full kitchen, king-size bed in the master bedroom, and twin beds in the other. Both bathrooms have an en suite complete with bath and shower.

Weekly housekeeping and pool towels are included.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to let you know that we ENJOYED our stay at your place. It was cozy and worth the price. The location was beyond convenient. We are so grateful. I will be back for 4th of July and I see you're already booked for that time. I was a bit disappointed :) but I know your guests will enjoy it just as much as I did.

Again, thank you!

Excellent Location

  • 2 of 5

Excellent location – walk to the beach and several restaurants; great canal view and shared pool. Owner very responsive and easy to rent from. Condo itself is dated – with limited updates over the years. The weather was great during our visit, so we spent the majority of our time out and about, so the condo was fine. However, if you are looking to spend time in the condo as a family, the condo is not ideal.

Owner's Response: Hi Glenn Thanks for your comments, sorry you were somewhat disappointed. It is an older building but updates are done regularly. I don't wish to itemize everything, but just as an example, within the last two years, all windows have been replaced by New Hurricane proof windows, and all TVs are now Flatscreen HDTV sets. Regards Al

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this place in May with my boyfriend, sister and best friend. We knew we were getting two bedrooms but had no idea it was two master bedrooms. This sealed the deal for us. Above that, the price was beyond reasonable. You usually hear people say " you get what you paid for " but in this case we got more than what we paid for. I woke up to a view of the mariner every day. We were literally walking distance from the beach and mall. We were walking distance but drove to the nearest Publix, where we got our groceries to cook at the house. You get a FULL kitchen. Man, I am just disappointed that someone else gets the chance to enjoy this beautiful, cozy and relaxing apartment for 4th of July and Labor Day. I would stay there a million times again. Let us not forget how helpful and professional Alistair is. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to enjoy your place Alistair.

Great Locations!

  • 4 of 5

It was a great trip to Fort Lauderdale. The location of the condo is perfect. It's only 3 short blocks from the beach, close to a water taxi stop, and right by bus and trolley stops. It saved us the cost of renting a car! Everything you need is within walking distance, there's even a couple of great restaurants in the same block. The Galleria Mall, along with Publix is about a half mile away. The condo is very spacious, with nice big windows, and had everything we needed. I love how we could look out the bedroom windows and look at the nice big boats on the intercoastal. We also enjoyed the pool area. We would definitely go back there again!!

Hi Al

Greetings from the UK. Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your condo.

Everything as described and most comfortable, spacious rooms, very clean. The front desk staff were excellent, very helpful - even got me on-line. Excelled Italian Restaurant on door step.

Good location, buses very frequent, really did not need to hire a car. We very much enjoyed the swimming pool area, again spotless. We would definitely come again and thank you for meeting us from the port. Best wishes Dianne & Cliff
