About Walter Cunningham Owner- Homeaway.com Member since August 2004

We purchased the Harbor Beach Estate in 2011 and have been renting this estate as short term vacation rentals since it was purchased.

The properties in my inventory are all owned by myself and my brother and a business partner and we take great pride in making sure all of our guest are personally welcomed when they arrive at any one of our properties.

We hope you will come to Fort Lauderdale to enjoy our sunshine and all the wonderful activities South Florida has to offer.

Why Walter Cunningham Owner- Homeaway.com Member since August 2004 chose Fort Lauderdale

My properties are Guaranteed to be 100% Legally Operated Vacation Rentals - No worries of your vacation being cancelled due to City of Fort Lauderdale Code Enforcement shutting down the house you have rented.

As of November 1, 2015, all vacation rentals located in the City of Fort Lauderdale must be licensed by the City of Fort Lauderdale as a vacation rental. All of my properties have every license required to legally operate as a vacation rental including the new City of Fort Lauderdale Licenses. Unlicensed vacation rental properties are subject to closure, fines, penalties and cancellation of reservations.

I am licensed by the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations, The Broward County Tourist Development Department and the Florida Department of Revenue, The City of Fort Lauderdale Business License, Broward County Business License and City of Fort Lauderdale Vacation Rental License . I am happy to provide copies of my license as they are required to be posted in the properties. These are the six licenses are required by every vacation rental.

Part of the new City Ordinance limits occupancy to a maximum of two people per bedroom. Therefore, a three bedroom property has a maximum occupancy of six guests. If the home you are considering, is advertising anything more than two people per bedroom, then they are clearly violating the law.

So if in doubt when looking for vacation rentals, ask the property manager or owner.

This house was perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent, gated community near the beach so we could walk and close to excellent dining options.

The house suited our needs perfectly, great neighborhood and very safe. We very much enjoyed this experience and will consider it again.

Thank you

Amazing Vacation Home!! Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home for spring break and had such a wonderful time. The pictures do not do justice on how beautiful the home is. It is also in a lovely, safe neighborhood. The pool and view were amazing!! There were 6 adults, 4 kids +baby and the house and location offered something for everyone. We really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be renting here again next year! Walter (the owner) was fabulous. He is quick to respond to any questions. He even went above & beyond to buy a birthday cake, ice cream, flowers and wine for our arrival- as it was my father's birthday the day we checked in. Thank you for all the great memories that my family has to treasure.

Beautiful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well maintained. The landscaping was beautiful and kept up perfectly. We loved the view of the water we had. The pool kept our kids entertained for hours and hours everyday and was very private. The outdoor sitting area by the pool was wonderful with options to sit in the sun or cool off in the shade. Our kids call it the mansion and have really enjoyed the time they have spent there the last two years. We also love how close it is to the beach and shopping. We really had a wonderful week!

Beautiful house & nice location

  • 5 of 5

The Harbour Beach area is very nice. The house is located on a corner of one of the waterways and there is a nice view.

The house was in impeccable condition and as shown in the pictures. Internet, TV, kitchen and other appliances worked well. The house was spacious and comfortably decorated. Lots of lounging space on the deck.

The whole process, booking, check-in and check-out went really smoothly with Walter and Cliff.

A few minor things, which should not prevent anyone from choosing this house: A few good knifes and proper cutting board would go a long way in the kitchen. Also, there are a lot of ghost ants. Not sure if it even is possible to get rid of those and they pretty harmless, just slightly annoying.

Gorgeous house with outstanding views!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful home for a week ,we were 10 in all and never felt cramped. There is nothing bad to be said of this place. We immediately felt right at home and loved taking walks in the beautiful quiet neighborhood. The outside heated pool area was very inviting and we spent most of our time there. We were so comfortable that we didn't really feel like eating in restaurants but if we had ,they were a couple of miles away. At night the views were spectacular and the grounds very well kept. The beds were very comfortable, the linens also.The manager Walter was very nice made us feel right at home. We would love to go back someday!
