Guestbook comments from the owner

The following review was posted on VacationHomeRentals by Lynn and Mike Overly (Indiana USA) on March 19, 2008:



Home away from home - We can't say enough about our stay in Lou and Jim's great house. The backyard is a dealbreaker with extreme privacy and wonderful landscaping. It was especially great at night. They were wonderful landlords for our foray into winter Florida living. The house has such a homey feel we didn't think about our home once. Everything you need and more is provided and again, I can't overstate how gracious the guys were. At one point, we had 4 guests and there was plenty of room for all and everyone was impressed by how well maintained the home was. Great experience and we'll definitely be back.

This was our family's 1st...

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's 1st experience not only renting a home (that would COMFORTABLY sleep 7) but also our 1st experience vacationing in Miami. After hours & literally DAYS of researching hundreds of internet listings (in addition to price comparing motels and reading tripadvisor reviews) of rentals located in the Miami area all the way north to Pompano Beach, this property TOPPED THE LIST for value, cleanliness, privacy, and amennities. Of the dozens of inquiries I made from both the rental owners and the BBB, Lou was the ONLY owner not intimidated or offended by my questions, as I had no idea what to expect! He graciously & thoughtfully answered each question in detail, and as far as I know, he's the only one of at least 50-75 inquiries that is licensed with the Dept of Business & Professional Regulation, Division of Hotels & Restaurants. He was one of the few (if not the ONLY one) that did NOT require a damage deposit; by mentioning his name you can receive a 10% off Gold Coast car rental, and he helped our family of seven get the MAX of our TIME & MONEY by sending us the Greater Ft Lauderdale Vacation planner (at his own expense); he emailed web links for discounts to local attractions & restaurants & shops & family/kid attractions; he shared plane ticket advice & info & even emailed a live beach cam link which provided 6 months of happy anticipation! He helped these northern tourists find their way around town and SAVE GAS by preparing a map for us to affordable restaurants serving the cuisine we had mentioned we were interested in. Lou PAYS ATTENTION to you! But YOU DON'T PAY travel agent fees for his GENEROUS, kind, considerate and SINCERE customer service -- if you want it (or need it), Lou will get it for you! Thanks, Lou, for all the behind-the-scenes work, dedicated effort, and personal expense you donated towards making our vacation memorable. You didn't make us feel like guests; you made us feel like FAMILY! Your friends the Baums from The Buckeye State! And all goes well for the generous man who conducts his business fairly. Psalm 112:5

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a wonderful week at this house in Florida and already am thinking about going back! I vacationed with my adult children, their spouses and my 15 month old granddaughter, and there was plenty of space for everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool and were happy to have that option when it was too chilly or windy for the beach. Having a crib, high chair and pool toys made things so easy with the baby! Everything was neat and very clean and looked exactly like the pictures. We had everything we needed for cooking and grilling at home, and we had a cooler, umbrella and everything we needed for the beach. The grocery store was a five minute drive down the street and a dollar store for incidentals was within walking distance. This really is a perfect spot for anyone vacationing in Ft. Lauderdale!! I highly recommend it and extend my thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful home!!

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

I took my family of two grown children, their spouse's and my baby grand daughter on a seven day cruise and we wanted to stay in Fort Lauderdale for a couple of days prior. This house was absolutely perfect for us. I have used Home Away a number of times and by far this is the best house I have ever found for the cost. Steve had thought of everything to make the house warm and inviting. There was even a crib and high chair for my grand daughter who is 1 1/2 years old. The pool and back yard is amazing and was nice and warm. I would highly recommend this house and would definitely stay there again.

what you should know..

  • 3 of 5

This house is ok. The house was very clean. The pool was not clean when we arrived but Roberto got right on it and it was cleaned the very day we called. The kitchen was clean and well stocked. The sunroom has no television. The master bathroom is quite small but the shower is large. There was only one outlet in the master bath. The back yard is very private. The only downside is that, to me, the house felt dated. The screens were old and torn in spots. Also, Wilson Manor is the second largest LGBT community in the US. Some people may find this info helpful for either booking or not booking this house.

Comfortable and close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at this property with my grown children - 6 adults total, and there was plenty of comfortable space for all of us both inside and out. Nice landscaping, very private yard with wonderful saltwater, heated pool for swimming day or night. Plenty of towels, dishes, even baking pans to make your stay enjoyable - we bought plenty of groceries at the nearby Trader Joe's and Whole Foods so we could save money by cooking. Location is close to everything - beaches, shopping, nightlife. We certainly felt at home the minute we walked in the front door. My birthday trip was wonderful, though it went by way too quickly!
