Fort Lauderdale House Rental Photos and Description

A modern beach home with unique accents, just steps to the beach in a safe area

Villa Paradiso is perfectly located one block to the beach and within an easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The walk to the beach takes less than two minutes with no highways to cross.

The home is located approximately 20 minutes by car from Fort Lauderdale International Airport. You can catch the water taxi (a 5 minute walk from the home) at the NEW SHOOTERS, located on the water way, that will take you as far as Miami and West Palm Beach. The water taxi can also take you to many featured spots like Las Olas. There are also several churches and Synagogues to chose from in this area.

This home is situated on Galt Ocean Mile in an area who's neighbors consist of up-scaled million dollar homes. Residence of this community tend to primarily be made up of families and retired couples. This area has won the hearts of many Montrealers--even the local pizza parlor, with the most excellent pizza, is owned by someone from Montreal.

You will enjoy the details and amenities Villa Paradiso has to offer. It is well equipped as it is the owner's home away from home and is very near and dear to their hearts. The owners of this home, along with their two teen-aged children, enjoy this area, especially the safe neighborhood and the convenience of the home's location to the beach and area attractions. The home is ideal for families or groups as there are three separate bedrooms that can accommodate up to 10 people in total, each bedroom with Flat screen TVs with NETFLIX and wifi throughout the house.

The living area has a sectional with 2 swivel chairs and a wall unit with a 55" flat screen TV. A beautiful, large piece of modern art that feels like a vision from under the Caribbean is mounted above the sectional. The design is a mix of modern, primitive, and organic. A large natural jute carpet by Ralph Lauren ties in all the seating areas.

The inviting kitchen, filled with plenty of natural sunlight, has a total of 7 bar stools. It is open to a large dining room with a table that seats 8 to 10.

The kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking and entertaining. Here you will find stainless steel appliances, including a wine cooler and gourmet coffee station with espresso machine. There is an 8 foot slider door that leads to the pool area.

There is a powder room and full bathroom located off the dining room area. There is a twin bedroom with set of bunk beds with a trundle and a queen bed with a flat screen TV. This room sleeps 3 to 4. Across from this room is the queen bedroom with a trundle and a flat screen TV. This room sleeps 2 to 3. The master bedroom holds a king bed with a large walk in closet, single sleeper sofa, 2 night stands, large dresser and flat screen TV. The master bathroom provides a double vanity, complete with lighted medicine cabinets, large, glass-enclosed free-standing shower, and a succulent soaking tub.

The back patio has a large heated pool with an attached jacuzzi that is heated to 85F. This area is perfect for the family to entertain under the pergola where you can grill and dine at the large dining table. There are chaise lounges around the pool for those sun worshipers looking to get a beautiful Florida tan and additional comfortable seating areas for those who wish to relax in the shade. An outdoor shower is available for guests to use to remove their tanning oils and sand before going into the pool or hot tub. The powder room has a door that allows guests to gain access from this pool area without having to go into the home.

For those seeking a little friendly competition, you will find a PING PONG TABLE in the garage.

All windows in the home have electronic hurricane shutters and window treatments.

We hope you will consider to make your memories in our home.

The home is located just 3 blocks of the famous Hugh Taylor Birch Park. This park is an oasis of tropical hammocks—a gift from Hugh Taylor Birch to Florida's posterity. His former estate preserves four distinct natural communities, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. Visitors can rent a canoe and paddle along a mile-long freshwater lagoon or fish from the seawall. Nature lovers can hike along two short trails and learn about local plants and wildlife while bicyclists and skaters glide along the paved park road. Visitors can access the beach via the pedestrian tunnel under A1A. Picnic areas overlook the channel; pavilions with water and electricity are available for rental. A group/youth campground is available to organized groups. The Terramar Visitor Center features displays regarding the areas natural and cultural history.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a BLAST! Two families 4 kids and 4 adults. We enjoyed every minute at this house. Great location and amenities. The house far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to planning another week or two next year. The children loved the pool and bunk bed. We even made a trip to Miami to see a Marlins game. It is truly a blessing to be able to have my kids spend their vacation here. We look forward to many more memories. The house is beautifully designed and decorated, loved the showers!

Dream come true

This was a dream family vacation and the first time ever leasing a vacation home. This is a beautiful home with plenty of room and all the amenities one would ever need. Beautiful neighborhood and a minute walk to beautiful quiet beaches. Twenty minutes from airport. Can't wait to return!

Luxury Beach Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (kids 8, 5 and 3) just returned from this fantastic beach vacation. The house seems newly updated with a modern luxury feel, and much larger than the pictures make it seem. We were very impressed with the large great room with kitchen in the middle. Our family had a lot of room to spread out, but still be together. The kids had a great time in the pool/spa, and we used the grill for several meals. Beach towels, toys, umbrella, chairs, large cooler, boogie boards all provided with a big beach cart to carry the load. The best part of this house is the location. The beach entrance is roughly 200 yards from the house. No busy streets to cross. There are several good restaurants within a 2-5 minute walk: Greek Isles Taverna, Shooters, Flip Flops, and Nicks were all great. We also took the water taxi from Shooters one night. Wallgreens and 7-11 are also less than 5 minute walk. Also, the management team is very responsive, as we couldn't find the beach towels the first day, so they sent someone right over. Very convenient. Very relaxing.

Stunning Home located steps from gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic for a vacation with friends and family. Between 4 kids (all girls) and an elderly grandmother, everyone had their own space. The pool is amazing and the walk to the beach was less than 2 minutes. The home was clean, furnished as if someone lived there full time and located minutes from anything you would need while on vacation. I HIGHLY recommend this property for anyone wanting to spend a week in sunny South FLA.

Nice property; inconvenient details

  • 5 of 5

Based on a very bad previous rental experience, I had several specific questions for the property management team when considering this property. The responses were prompt and assuring. Two somewhat negative factors: 1.The logistical components: contract, addendum to pool and hot tub; check-out list; cleaning and maintenance guide (to name a few) were a bit much. One concise document would facilitate ease of instructions for all parties. 2. The cleaning instructions. We are on vacation folks! and pay a cleaning fee so don't ask us to clean and do laundry! We have flights to catch and getting up extra early to wash and dry our sheets (folding not requested*!*) and towels is a bit much. I have no issue with keeping a property clean and tidy while we are there but I do not expect to arrive to a rental that has been maintained by renters; I expect the cleaning staff to ensure those details are met. That said, the property was clean when we arrived and we managed to get our sheets in the washing machine upon departure!

As other reviewers stated, it is a very nice property: good layout; nice details; excellent amenities. We enjoyed our time there.
