About Samantha

Our family has resided in Fort Lauderdale for the past 25 years. My husband is an Allstate insurance agent and I'm an independent insurance agent, we enjoy traveling boating and fishing. I am originally from France and fluent in both French and Spanish. We have two sons ages 12 and 14 who also enjoy fishing, going to the beach, football and water activities.

Samantha purchased this house in 2009

Why Samantha chose Greater Fort Lauderdale

We decided to purchase in this area because we fell in love with the secluded beach, the vacation atmosphere and the great fishing. We presently use the house in the summer occasionally on the weekends.

What makes this house unique

Great fishing/boating, kayaking, jet ski rental, parasailing, snorkeling, diving, biking and the great beach. Also nearby are great shopping, dining, movie theatre, golf course and bowling.

Beach House at Pompano Beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the beach home. From the pictures on VRBO we thought the house was larger than it was. It was an older home and the rooms were small but it had all the basics that you would need plus a bottle of wine waiting for us. The pool was very clean and there was plenty of outdoor furniture so we could all sit outside and be together.

Awesome Trip

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a long weekend and it was awesome. The location cannot be beat and the house was great. We had 7 so we used the pool house as well. Could not have been happier and if we had questions Sam was very responsive. The beach is a short walk across the street and the pool area was perfect to hang out and chat the night away. Highly recommend this place.

Fantastic Floridian Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Samantha and Steve created an amazing oasis with beautiful style and amenities perfect for our two families. The pictures are representative of the decor of the house and the gorgeous pool. It was clean, updated and well kept. The beds were extremely comfortable and the dual head showers reminded us of a spa experience in an expensive hotel. Centrally located to great restaurants and activities, the location was perfect for seeing the Everglades, going to the hockey game and visiting Ft. Lauderdale to Palm Beach. The beach was a short minutes walk across the street and the bridge over the mangrove covered pond was delightful. We met wonderful neighbors and sat out back every night listening to music and telling stories while our kids swam. We rented both the main house and the pool house which gave the boys an awesome hang out away from the parents. Samantha was very customer oriented and did everything to make sure our visit was perfect. Great times in a great place. We wil come back again.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 had a great stay at this property. The pictures were accurate, the home was clean and tidy and we enjoyed the pool and the walk to the beach. There is enough seating for meals with the folding chairs but the kitchen is definitely on the cozy side. It has all the utensils and cookware but lacks some of the kitchen essentials like foil and wrap and zip bags as well as things like olive oil and some cleaning products so just keep that in mind if you plan to cook a lot as we did. Overall we were happy with our choice to stay here and would do it again.

A lovely & comfortable home on the canal

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples and a single all meeting (from California, Ohio and Canada) in Ft. Lauderdale for vacation. The house seemed well-suited to our needs and our solo friend even used the back apartment, herself. She did mention that she thought the apartment kind of smelled like dogs when she arrived, but a scented candle helped with that. Also, the apartment bed is not very far off the ground, so if you have a bad back or bad knees, this bed might be difficult for you to get into and out of. That said, the apartment stays very dark and quiet in the morning, so it's a great choice for light sleepers. The main house is nicely decorated and spacious and the pool, while small, is really nice. We actually spent a lot of time in the backyard, which was quite enjoyable (even when it was pouring rain, we just stayed on the covered porch). My husband and I stayed in the "downstairs" converted garage room because it had the comfiest bed, we thought. That said, the room doesn't get as cool as the rest of the house. We had to keep the A/C very cold and the bathroom door open in order to get any airflow in there. You also need to be very aware of the step down into the room and the step up into both the bathroom and the house. However, Samantha has added reflective tape to help with this, which I appreciated. I agree with the reviewer that said the house smelled mildewy, but my grandmother's house in Cape Coral always smelled the same way, too. It's a by-product of a few different things (most of which aren't fixable) -- older architecture + high humidity for most of the year + high mineral/sulfur content in the water. So, we just burned some scented candles & fixed it right up! Samantha was incredible with communication and help and has thought of just about everything. We appreciated the washer & dryer and all of the kitchen items, too. The house is well-located (close to the beach and only about 15 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale proper). In addition, there is a Whole Foods and a Publix within 5 minutes driving which is great for stocking up on groceries!

A nice place to stay at while on a more quiet holiday in Florida

  • 4 of 5

The house was as pictured and the owners were really helpful with providing extra blankets, directions and such. The house is on a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to beach, supermarket and beach. We even used the kayaks and bikes the owners provided! We had a great stay. Although be aware the house might smell a bit damp, but Florida is a very humid area after all. That was well solved with having the AC on higher. A few rooms in the house do get hotter and more moist. The beach house was great as we were travelling with a small baby, perfect for napping. Do take into account that there are cockroaches both in the house and poolhouse. They are not the biggest of kind, but their droppings do appear on walls and one night we woke up to one trying to get his way to the other side of the room.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry, but we were not aware of the roaches issue at the house. We do have all of our houses treated by a professional pest control company on a monthly basis and would have been happy to have them go back to the house to inspect and treat, if we were informed of the situation while the tenant was at the house. Unfortunately, during the Spring and Summer months, the roaches are plentiful here in Florida due to heavy rain fall. After reading this comment, we have taken every steps to remedy the problem, so it will no longer be an issue.
