Overview

Coral Shores House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6-8.

*Please note that during high season (December to April), we run Saturday to Saturday stays only.* Classic Florida cottage great for a budget friendly family vacation. The lagoon pool is the showpiece of the home and a hit with young and old alike. The home was built during the awesome boom days of South Florida in the 1950`s and 60`s, with Dade County Pine ceilings and an ornamental coral rock wall, both now Federally protected and no longer available for building. This is Fort Lauderdale, no South Beach pretense. The exposed pine ceilings provide a warm, homey touch. The back bedrooms have sliding glass doors for direct access to the pool area. The backyard is completely fenced to provide Key West-style privacy. Window air-conditioning units. Wireless high speed internet and cable television. The home is equipped with standard kitchen and bathing amenities suitable for an affordable family oriented vacation stay. The legendary Mai Kai restaurant is a short walk away for all you tiki enthusiasts. Coral Ridge Mall is also close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the wonderful time in Fort Lauderdale! We enjoyed the pool area so much, it's a beautiful pool! We had some adventures too and visited the Everglades, Key West, Palm Beach and Cape Canaveral. Our daughter loved shopping in Florida. We will always remember our time in Florida! Lots of greetings! -Family of 4 from Hamburg

LOVED IT!! Slice of heaven for Snowbirds!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, let me say that Kevin is wonderful!! I was a little nervous about online booking...kind of like a blind date. In reading the reviews, (including the negative one...where the guest was unhappy so he refunded 1/2 of their rental fee)..sounded very fair to me and reasonable. Even though we never met in person, I found him to be honest, easy to reach, quick to respond, accurate in his description of property, plus he seemed genuinely concerned about us as his guests. I felt that he really cared about us and treated us like family.... EXCELLENT customer service!!! The property was great!! For all the Michiganders that may travel here, you definitely have that up north cottage feel with a lovely views of entire pool area from the 2 walls of sliding glass doors in the living room!! This is an older home that we found to be very clean and comfy to live in....we are planning to stay here again on our next visit to Fort Lauderdale! There is a private cement patio area off the kitchen shaded by a large tree growing in a sandy area where you can enjoy your morning coffee if thats what you are into. Most of the backyard is the gem of the property, the POOL and its glorious friend, the HOT TUB surrounded with typical Florida landscape. The entire property was surrounded by a huge privacy fence....definitely felt that you were in your own private heaven back there!! Now that being said, because Kevin was so kind as to allow us to bring our four legged kids, the neighbors to the right have dogs which we never would have known except for the fact that our dogs wanted to play with them!! The neighborhood is quiet...didn't hear a peep out of anyone while we enjoyed the pool and spa.

As for the house, there was just two of us, but it was great having 2 full bathrooms...plenty of towels including beach towels were supplied. The master bed was fantastic...pillow top, very comfortable. Hubby napped a few times on the leather couch in living room which also was very comfortable....we tried to take it back to Michigan with us, but just couldn't squeeze it in the minivan!

I would and already have recommended both friends and family traveling to the area to stay here. In my opinion, you won't find a better host, lovelier house, or more awesome pool for a reasonable price that allows you to bring you best friends along. Thanks Kevin for sharing your home with us! For those traveling with their dogs, Synder Bark Park is great!

Amazing Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family vacation. Kevin answered any questions we had very quickly and the house and pool area were very clean. We stayed for 14 nights and everyday was beautiful and the pool was the perfect temperature. It is very close to shopping and the beach. The private yard made you feel like you were in your own private oasis. We are already starting to discuss our next vacation and this property will be our first choice in Fort Lauderdale. Thanks again Kevin and we look forward to staying here again.

Absolutely Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay! Kevin was awesome to work with, made the booking a breeze.

My husband, myself and our two fur babies stayed here for one week. The grounds were beautiful with palm trees, greenery and flowers. The yard is very very private, completely enclosed so no doggie escapes.

The pool is gorgeous and the hot tub was perfect. The pool guy came to clean the pool on our 3rd day and he was super friendly and helpful with fun places to go in the area.

The house is nicely laid out and the master bed was so comfortable we came home and bought one just like it.

The kitchen is fully stocked and there is a washer and dryer in the home too.

We just booked our next trip back to this house, it really is a little piece of Key West in lauderdale.

Would highly recommend this home. Can't wait to go back next year!

Very disappointing.

  • 1 of 5

Very old home that has not been maintained properly. Owner had a mixup with the new cleaning company before we arrived and we got a dirty house with dirty sheets. Owner said it has been resolved. The pool and backyard don't look like the pictures, it is very overgrown, no grass, just a lot of dirt around the tree that washes into the pool because it rains so much. We left early even though we prepaid because it was so dirty. Owner refunded half of our stay because I was so upset with the place.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you again Kevin for giving us the opportunity to stay at your rental. It was a wonderful stay, my family and I enjoyed it very much. The kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms were all very clean and comfy. The pool is exceptional! The location of this home it great, we are literally minutes away from the beach and half an hour away from Miami. All attractions were right by, no worries about having to take long hourly drives, everything seemed to be close enough and was easy to get to. Walking distance from the house to the mall was a plus! The neighborhood is also very nice. This is a wonderful home and it made our vacation joyful.

amazing

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at Kevins home for 8 glorious days! We had a wonderful time and so did the dogs. Cool open feel to the home with an awesome kitchen and the pool....it's just amazing!!!! I have been to Fort Lauderdale many times and have found my home away from home and its close to everything. Kevin is an honestly great guy and seems to really care about the people who vacation in his home. Look no further....
