NOT recommended, misrepresented, rundown, poor value, uncomfortable, noisy area, dated mechanicals

  • 1 of 5

The listing for this property and the reality are SO different.The following items listed as part of the rental were NOT available: "garage, covered parking, fireplace, computer/fax machine, rowboat, working fountains & beautiful tropical landscaping". We provided the owner a list of issues within the first day of our arrival. Items such as broken: fans, screens, shower doors, windows , blinds. These items should have been attended to BEFORE our arrival. Owner fixed some of the items but most were neglected as is the over all condition of this property. Our first vacation week we were dealing with house issues and owner atempts at correcting problems. Forget about using the fireplace "for that romantic evening" it was deemed unsafe for our stay due to the chimney's need to be cleaned, never was. One could hardly walk in the garage much less park a car, it is full of hoarded junk. Inside issues were; sparse, uncomfortable furniture, limited lamp lighting, broken master toilet flushing mechanism, shower doors missing handles & glides, windows that wouldn't open due to broken cranks or being taped shut, screens missing or having numerous holes, dated faucets that leaked, metal tape holding the kitchen sink in place as rusty metal flecks fell behind the cupboard doors below, loose hinges on other cabinet doors/drawers, broken guest bath fan, dated appliances such as a refrigerator with an inoperable ice maker/water dispenser, a wall oven that wouldn't heat properly and the microwave died towards the end of our stay. Outside issues included; the broken fountains were mosquito breeders, on our second day the old pool heater died and replacing it took the first 3 weeks of our vacation before we could use the pool. Weeds filled the tropical overgrown landscape. Old dried out, rotting decking and collapsing pavers near the hot tub required our caution to avoid splinters and sprained ankles. Tiki hut and side patio roofs leaked and black mold covered most of the outdoor swing & hut cushions. Broken down boats were stored in the side yard. Beware this rental's noisy location is near Interstate 595 & Rt 84 and under the airport take off flight path. Having prepaid, we made the best of a bad situation. At the end of our 10 week stay, the owner agreed we were owed something beyond our refunded damage deposit for all the inconvenience. A week after we left, we received $150, less than one day's rental. The owner appears to be a "nice guy', we now feel differently.

Excellent Value...Highly Recommended Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Our group came down from Toronto to spend a relaxing week of golf in Florida and we were not disappointed. The home is clean and spacious and Keith was very helpful with the orientation. Close to all the amenities and minutes away from the Plantation Golf Preserve which is one of our favourite golf courses in Fort Lauderdale. After golf, we looked forward to getting back to the home and relaxing under the Tiki Hut enjoying the great view while we BBQed some stakes on the grill. The rates are very reasonable for what you get. It's definitely one of the best value properties around. I'll definitely recommend this vacation home for anyone travelling to Florida and I'm hoping to rent it again on my next golf trip in Fort Lauderdale.

Fish from your yard!

  • 5 of 5

I have always enjoyed renting from private owners on VRBO or Home Away for the simplicity and value. Keith's home had all the value and convenience I could ask for on our vacation. The property was clean, the pool was maintained well and I fished without having to bring my own rods or renting from some expensive place. Plenty of spaces to stretch out if you have a family or group of friends. I appreciate being outside and enjoying the outdoor space at this home was a highlight. There is no way you can get all this at a fair price from a hotel or resort. If you plan to not rent a car then this would not be good but chances are you will need a car in Florida since it is so stretched out.

Awesome tropical home on lagoon

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending just over two weeks at Keith's place. The pictures are a wonderful display of what to expect. We had those afternoon/evening showers while I was there, but they passed quickly - perhaps because we were enjoying them under the tiki hut in the back yard. The house is wrapped by canals on both sides and the lagoon is in the back, which offers great peace and terrific views in an otherwise upscale environment which is convenient to the Hardrock Casino and major highways. I will definitely recommend this vacation spot to anyone who is looking for an affordable private Florida vacation.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of staying at Keith’s rental home while attending an annual conference in Fort Lauderdale for the past three years. This home is spacious, clean, and well maintained professionally. It can easily accommodate four people for an extended stay and has plenty of room to entertain guests. It has a large open fully equipped kitchen that overlooks the three waterways converging on this corner lot. The home has many amenities that include a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and large gas barbeque. The back yard is a tropical paradise with abundant patio furniture and a tiki hut with panoramic views of the lagoon. Fishing equipment is provided and can be done right off the wrap around dock in the back yard. On two occasions manatees came right up to the dock. The location is a very short drive from the airport, convention center, and Fort Lauderdale beach. Keith is easy to work with and very helpful in explaining how everything in the house works. I have truly enjoyed my stays in Keith’s home and would highly recommend this rental for business or pleasure while visiting the Fort Lauderdale area.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very easy to work with. He got us all squared away from the minute we arrived. We were in town for the boat show with some of our crew, and they loved the pool/tiki hut/hot tub. We even extended our trip by a few days there. Only about a 15 minute drive into Lauderdale. Hopefully we will be back again!
