I have been a Broadway actor/singer/dancer for 25 years and purchased this property while on the national tour of Mel Brooks' 'THE PRODUCERS' at the nearby Broward Center for the Performing Arts. I'm originally from West Virginia, but now make my home in New York City.
Patrick purchased this house in 2006
I fell in love with Ft. Lauderdale many years ago while touring the country in Broadway shows that played at the beautiful Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Lauderdale. Ft. Lauderdale's pristine beaches, world class shopping, superb dining options, and multitude of attractions make it one of the most popular resort destinations in the country. And did I mention the weather!! There is nothing quite like a week long retreat to Ft. Lauderdale.
Among the many reasons I fell in love with this home would be it's unique layout and open loft-style floor plan, the spectacular 1,200 sq. ft. sun terrace, premium upgrades throughout, the quiet, residential neighborhood, and proximity to 'everything' - shopping, dining, white sand beaches, Publix grocery store just blocks away, theaters, the airport, and of course Las Olas Boulevard. As you read through the many guest reviews, you will notice that previous guests love the neighborhood and the 3rd floor sun terrace, which get's direct sun all day. You will enjoy stunning views of downtown from the terrace. But mostly, this property will feel like 'home,' not a rental property, and certainly not a cramped hotel room.
If this property is booked for the dates you are seeking, check out my other home here on Homeaway. It is listing 3813563.
Great house, very clean and well located in Fort Lauderdale. The area is pretty quiet and the terrace is great for relaxing during the day and evening night. I rented many houses the last few years but Patrick's house is one of the most fully equipped I saw so far (lot of kitchen tools and super BBQ with extra gas!). Worth the price.

Our family of 5 was able to enjoy our time in Fort Lauderdale by relaxing in this amazing home! The home is ammaculately maintained and perfect to rejuvenate in after a day of excursions and enjoy one another!
Had a great time at Patrick's vacation home in Ft Lauderdale with my husband and two sons. Lots of room for everyone to have their own space - important with a teenager and a preteen! House is very convenient to everything you'd want to do - Las Olas with it's shops and restaurants, beach, riverfront, etc. Publix grocery store with parking garage is down the street. Kitchen was very well appointed with everything you could need to cook your own meals. We used it for a couple of dinners and breakfast every day but didn't even open the oven. It was great to have the gas grill on the rooftop deck which we did use since we are big grillers. That is so important to us and something we look at every time we do a vacation rental. Which is every time we go somewhere! We are experienced vacation rental patrons and this one met if not exceeded our expectations. Neighborhood was nice - saw lots of people out - walking dogs, etc. Honestly we didn't spend much time outside the house when we were there. Ready for air conditioning and away from the humidity when we were home after days doing outdoor things. I was surprised at how close the train was but it was fun to hear - except in the middle of the night. One suggestion is room darkening shades for those of us that like to sleep in but that's all I can think of! Thank you Patrick!
Patrick, the property manager and this home have restored my faith in Homeaway. The house was immaculate and although you would expect to see signs of normal wear and tear considering the number of guests it's housed, NONE. The house is truly well appointed with great amenities. Everything is well labeled, clear and all terms and conditions are beyond reasonable. Patrick was so kind patient and even stayed on the phone with me after I called late night on arrival wondering why the code didn't work and we discovered I was at the wrong house (use the gate entrance directly to the right of the garage haha!). More than enough space for a family of 4. We hardly left the house. Close proximity to everything. Be sure you use Mosquito repellant if you plan to use the outdoor areas. Hands down- 5 star service, home and owner!
We stayed five nights in this home with our two daughters (4 years and 10 months). This home was great. The spacious open floor plan was great to pack/clean up from the beach or prepare a meal while being with the kids. The kitchen was wonderful to cook in and we loved eating at the big island. It also had every utensil and appliance you would need. Patrick made sure there was a pack 'n' play, highchair, and stationary entertainer when we arrived which was really helpful with our youngest. There were some waters and sodas in the refrigerator when we arrived which was a nice surprise since we hadn't run to the store yet. The house is in a great little neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, close to Las Olas and not far from Fort Lauderdale beach (although we went to John U Lloyd, Dania, and Hollywood beach instead). We even enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and across the bridge to the Riverwalk a few mornings. The house also had a few beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, and beach towels so we had everything we needed for the beach! Patrick was great to work with, the house rules and checkout procedures were reasonable, and we really enjoyed our visit. One little thing to mention is the pool was smaller in person than we expected based on how we saw the pictures. That being said it was beautiful, clean and perfect for us. I just wanted to mention this because if you really wanted a big pool this would be good to know.
This home and place is mutch better than It say. We was there for 2 weeks and the lokation is perfekt. Patrick was easy to connect with and give us all nessesary information. I can highly recomend this home. Supermarket was near by and easy to reach beach and LAS Olas. Miss it, but will be back. Joakim
My wife and I, and our college age son and daughter recently completed a five night stay at this beautiful home in Fort Lauderdale. The property exceeded our expectations in every way. The owner, Patrick, was easy to connect with from the beginning, and was very helpful with details of the area, and left a comprehensive guide for us. The home is in a delightful area, and we took morning coffee walks on the nearby riverwalk. You could easily fill up day with "Yacht Watching"!
A Publix supermarket is only a few blocks away, as is a stop for the "Water Taxi", which is great way to get a feel for the area. The layout of the home was great for us, with each of the three bedrooms having its own bathroom. The living and kitchen/dining area is spacious with a full compliment of dining ware. The pool outside and the third floor deck add even more relaxation to the property.
If you have the opportunity to stay here you will never want to stay in a hotel again!
