Fantastic again

  • 5 of 5

Back in Fort Lauderdale for the second time and this time renting another house from Louise.

We are a family of 5 with teenagers and the house was perfect. The size of the house is great, not to big not to small. Big living room and kitchen 3 spacious bedrooms and so comfortable beds. The garden with heated pool that's where we spent most of our afternoons and evening barbequeing after we been to the beach or an excursion. The beach is literally 10 minutes walk. Very nice restaurants are on walking distance and great shopping both for food and clothes. The Galleria Mall is great , 10 minutes by car. The area is beautiful and quiet and you fell very safe. The service from Louise is absolutely outstanding,. We are coming back!!! Again!!!!

9 Adult Friends Trip in April

  • 4 of 5

A group of nine friends, some single, some coupled stayed at the house for a week. There was enough room for all of us. Plenty of dishes, seating, and sleeping space. We cooked in the kitchen everyday and used the grill nightly. The coffee pot and washer/dryer were very useful to our group. We enjoyed the pool daily and outside patio area. We were within walking distance to the beach, public transportation, restaurants, and chartered fishing trips. We felt safe throughout the neighborhood. I would certainly book this property again.

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults and one baby) stayed in the house for 7 weeks during the fall of 2015. I can't think of a better place to stay when you're in Fort Lauderdale. The house itself is of that rare perfect size, not too big and not too small and with a backyard we spent most of our time in BBQ:ing, sunbathing and swimming in the heated pool. The location is also perfect. You walk to the beach in 10 minutes and to the shops and restaurants on Las Olas Blvd in 20. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet and very friendly. I'm trying to think of things lacking but frankly nothing comes to mind. After 7 weeks we considered the house quite or own and will definetely be staying there the next time vi come to Fort Lauderdale.

Boys Golf Trip was Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here from May 1 - 8 and we had an amazing time. 9 guys came down from Toronto and everything was as described, instructions to get in were simple, clear and the rest of the week was very relaxing! Plenty of space for all of us, spacious kitchen, grill was key and the house had all of the other necessities to live comfortably for a week. Short walk to the beach was very convenient, until we discovered the free golf cart shuttle to go back and forth :) Pool was great for a dip on those hot days. I do recommend bringing some mosquito repellant because after it rains they are out and you can't tell you're getting eaten. Louise responded quickly to our queries which was helpful. I would highly recommend this property for anybody headed to Fort Lauderdale that wants to be close to beach and nightlife. Would definitely go back and stay here as it was perfect spot for us. Thank you Louise!

Perfect pick!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 8 (6 adults and 2 children) and this place had more then enough room for all of us. We arrived to find two rooms set up with playpens for the kids and a bottle of wine for us adults. Louise could not have been more helpful and accommodating to our needs. Thank you Louise! The pool is heated and has a gate around it which made our week so much more enjoyable. The shed is full of beach and pool toys which was a big plus for us. The beach is a quick 3 minute drive and everything else is a short drive away as well. Perfect location for any type of vacation. Would definitely stay at this property again !!
