Located in Historic Sail Boat Bend area of downtown Fort Lauderdale, this neighborhood is the only Historic District in Fort Lauderdale. You are in walking distance to the downtown River Front, dining, theater, Broward Performing Arts Center, Children Museum, water taxi to A1A beaches and shopping and dining on Las Olas Blvd.
The property sits right on the water and has a feeling of being on a boat when sitting inside the house. This property was once a boat house built around 1925 and was fully renovated in 2005 and is only one of a few properties that sit right on the water. City zoning codes no longer allow building right on the waterfront without a set-back from the water. The 40 foot deck sits right over the water and is on the New River. Being a one bedroom there is an Aero bed mattress for guest. The pool is not heated.
IMPORTANT: Prior to booking and making any auto pay Home Away payment , please email or call owner to verify booking. Thank You.

The boathouse was everything we hoped it would be and more. Brian was a pleasure to communicate with and Bill was great. Bill met us at the house even after our plane was delayed a couple of hours. He showed us around and told us to make ourselves at home.
This house had everything we needed and even more. I was gone most of the day, but my husband was there all day and he would relax on the dock fishing a little and watching the boats go down the river. It was so nice and relaxing.
We were only about 10 minutes from the port where my meetings were and about the same to Los Olas shopping district.
The only kinda sort of thing we had problems with was the bed was a little hard for our taste. If you like a firm mattress, then you'll love it.
I can't recommend this rental enough. I will definitely refer my travel clients to the boathouse.
We arrived at the boathouse and although our flight had been delayed we were met by Brian and Bill at the property. They were very welcoming and showed us around everything before they left us to get settled in.
We found the house to have everything one would need to self cater, if you didn't want to eat out much. Great pool area and sunbathing spot. Very private and secluded, you would think you were on a desert island.
We spent many a sunny morning out on the front dock area having coffee before planning what to do for the day. We watched the boats go by and lots of wildlife, at night and during the day.
We are considering our plans to go back again really soon!
Thanks Brian, it was a pleasure staying here.
Our stay was Fantastic, We had everything we could have possibly needed for our short stay. Private and close to everything. Definitely would stay there again! Better than advertised. Great getaway.
My wife and I have stayed at dozens of vacation properties in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean and Europe. This is by far one of, if not the nicest places we have stayed. Better than advertised. This is also the cleanest property, hands down, of any of those we have stayed. Brian and Bill are very accommodating and easy to work with. When Bill was showing us the property and how the coffee machine worked, I told him, not to bother, I drank tea. The next morning he showed up with a brand new tea kettle to make our stay that much more comfortable - classy move.
The property is also very well equipped. Not like some of the bare bones places we have stayed, where you are out buying salt and pepper and paper towels. Great appliances, all new, great shower, etc. All top shelf stuff.
Good location, very private. Eclectic neighborhood which might put some off (not us). Walking distance to plenty of restaurants and sights (as far as that goes in Fort Lauderdale). Perfect for two people.
Nice people, nice place, nice time.
This property was wonderful, beautifully landscaped and very nicely furnished. The hosts made sure everything was available. This was our first time using VRBO and it won't be the last if this is any kind of example of what we can expect. We loved the privacy. Thank You!
My wife and I enjoyed a few days at the boathouse to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. The location was excellent and the accomodations superb. The unit is in excellent condition and we enjoyed lounging on the deck at water's edge. Very close to the airport, excellent restaurants and anything else you might need, yet secluded when home.
