About Jan Brain

Our property management company, Covenant Property Group was founded several years ago when it became apparent that many families were tired of paying higher and higher prices for vacation accommodations. Since then the luxury home vacation rental business has virtually exploded around the globe.

Covenant Properties has grown to become one of the larger, well-respected property management companies in the area. We offer quality, luxury homes to the families that are looking for a home away from home at reasonable rates and managed professionally. These homes or villa apartments are typically one to five bedrooms, most with upscale amenities such as a pool, waterfront and near one of our pristine beaches. The properties provide a wonderful venue for families that are tired of the typical resort they would have to share with many others that may or may not be considerate those around them. Our goal is to have all of our guests have a great time experiencing the closeness of friends and family with none of the downside.

Our mission is to provide accommodations and services that exceed the expectations of our guests and to make their South Florida experience one that is filled with cherished memories.

Perfect vacation spot for a family!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have three daughters, ages 7, 5, and 1, and we looked all over to find a vacation rental suitable for everyone. This place was perfect!

We flew in to Ft. Lauderdale airport, ubered over, and pretty much didn't go anywhere other than the beach and back for 2 weeks... and we loved it!

The location is perfect. The beach is a two minute walk, which even our 1-year-old enjoyed. The water was perfect and the sand is soft. We spent 4-5 hours on the beach each day. There are tons of great places to eat and the Public is a ten-minute walk away.

The unit was super comfortable. The fact that each bedroom comes with its own bathroom is ideal for a family! We loved the set up, and the grill in the patio was superb. We grilled out several times.

Overall, we love the location, the place, and the hosts were gracious and professional. We would definitely love to come back!!

Great Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed in this unit for 8 days. We found the house exactly like in pictures. It was very clean. There was even a welcome basket! No complaints. The beach was so close to the rental which we enjoyed everyday and everyone went whenever they felt like it. There are a lot of restaurants and ice cream places around as well.

We would defiantly go back again. Jan and Tom were great hosts!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed here for 10 wonderful days. When we arrived there was a welcome basket, which was very much appreciated. Everything was perfect. The house was clean, and all basic necessities were there from bathroom supplies to beach items.

A really nice front yard where you could enjoy the sun, read a book or have a meal. Near to both the beach and restaurants.

The rental process was very smooth, from first contact until departure. We got a lot of help and useful tips from Jan and Tom that we very much appreciated.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Very pleased with Garden Villa Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I were very happy with the apartment during our 3 week stay. It was emasculate and very well stocked. Enjoyed the outside patio; very private and comfortable.

Short walk to fishing pier, restaurants and shopping.

Would recommend it highly.

Great property and an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed in the apartment over the Christmas week and had a fabulous time, it was exactly what we wanted and what was advertised. The apartment was very clean and the basic necessities were there including beach items. The location is great for walking to the beach, restaurants & night life.The whole process of renting, check in/check out couldn't have been any easier.

Car: not necessary

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea (LBTS) is one of the finest and safest beach areas in South Florida. LBTS is unique to the area since it has remained free from high rise development along its beachfront. The beaches are beautiful and the locals are friendly. Along Commercial Blvd from the bridge to the beach you’ll find many local shops, restaurants and bars. The beachfront is lined with low-rise condos, boutique hotels and a fishing pier. The local reefs are close to the beach, so the snorkeling and scuba diving is excellent. In fact, LBTS is known as the beach diving capital of the world!
