About The Owner

My name is Rosa Estevez , I am From Spain

(Hablo Espanol), I am in the export business so this house is a new adventure, I put lots of heart and dedication in decorating and purchasing all the necesary things to make your stay very pleasant.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Fort Lauderdale

I lived next door for ten years and I always liked the neighborhood because of the feeling of being so close to everything, major freeways, downtown, beaches, Malls , Museums,or enjoying a Broadway show at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, etc... At the same time when I sit in my back yard listening to music under my huge Ficus Tree, looking at the water I feel like I am not in the city anymore.

What makes this house unique

Intercoastal Waterway House With Boat Dockage & a Breezy Back Yard close to Miami next to Downtown Fort Lauderdale. It is a relaxing peaceful house, where you can sit near the water drinking expresso and feeling the breeze. Also you can be in Las Olas for dinner or dancing in Downtown in less than 10 minutes enjoying a Broadway show at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

A 15 minute ride will take you to the Hard Rock Casino or to the beaches. Once you step into the house all you see is water, lots of trees, palms ,fuschia Bouganvillas and boats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rosa - Thanks for your hospitality, the house was very comfortable and homey! We all loved the place and I know I will be back soon, as the others will too. I was very pleased that the house was as described on the internet, there was a doubt in the back of our minds what we would find. We were very pleased. I will bring my family here on vacation and will stay with the team here again at convention times.

I will spread the word of your homes for others to stay here. I wish I had felt better after everyone else left and been able to explore, gives me a reason to come back. I am leaving you some of our delicious products to try and share. If you know of anyone in the countries we are in that could use our nutritious healthy products to lose weight, eat healthy and build muscles, please feel free to share my contact info.

Rosa, thanks again for providing us a great place to stay. I really wanted to try out the time!

Casa brisa, fort Lauderdale

  • 4 of 5

I was looking for a family friendly base in south Florida for our spring holiday. With three generations to accommodate I wanted the flexibility of a condo. Casa Brisa was perfect. It was well appointed, clean And ample of space. Rosa was so friendly and helpful, she really made us feel welcome and the girls loved helping to water her garden and feed treats to her dog. We also loved watching the jumping fish and birds!

Beautiful Home with a Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

The home itself is beautiful. Quite spacious, with plenty of room for at least 6 people, we had no issues at all with the home. The backyard and the dock are simply gorgeous; a great place to hang out during the day. Rosa, our host, was absolutely wonderful. Kind, informative and genuinely caring, Rosa went above and beyond to help us out even though she herself was on vacation at the time. I highly recommend staying here, it is an experience I guarantee you will not regret and I will certainly be staying here again the next time I am in the area. Thank you Rosa!

Not recommendable

  • 2 of 5

The fotos do mispresent this home!

Firstly it is situated in a not so much welcoming district which is confirmed by the fact that all the neighbors including the owner living at the left side have their watchdogs. They do not bark much but you can notice that these are not pet dogs.

So there is also a gate but the fotos of the front yard do not show that there is one and they do not show that this gate is old and out of order so that every time you drive in and out you are afraid of the gate swinging back and forth.

The house has a nice inner layout but the fotos do not show what is behind kitchen and closet doors. The shelves of the kitchen are old, dirty and bent. Down in all the kitchen drawers you can find papers. So there is no difficult choice to eat-in or -out because you will rather eat-out!

And when you open the closets you find them so old inside that you do not want to put your clothes in there.

The bathroom is not the newest either. Showering is uncomfortable for people taller than 5´7 because the showerhead is fix in the wall at a little height.

No, we did NOT feel at home as the home descriptions says. And there is really no cost behind repairing and refurbishing the mentioned issues.

Unfortunately such experiences still make us doubt if one really can book through the internet without having seen the places beforehand.

Owner's Response: Tom . So sorry you found this issues with the house , I welcome you guys and all I tried is to be is kind to you ,Me as an owner really appreciate feed back to make thins better , thanks for letting me know even if it was in not such a kind way . As far as the dogs ,this are our pets They are part of our family and mine in particular was a rescued dog she was left abandon in an apartment , so I did not choose the kind , simply rescue an animal in distress , Lots of my neigbors also got they dogs the same way . I love my neighborhood for the convenience of living in nature and been so close to downton , but this is Fort Lauderdale , is a diverse city . Always be gratefull for you staying with us and hope you have better luck in the future with your rentals . Rosa Estevez Thanks
