About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, sleeps 10!

Welcome to Villa Pine! This delightful 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom home is situated 2 1/2 blocks from the beach in the prettiest picturesque seaside community of Lauderdale by the Sea. You will not find a nicer, more private location for your getaway vacation. I am rated #1 in best and highest reviews in Fort Lauderdale and Lauderdale by the Sea for accommodating 10 people in a home :)

Entering the home on the ground floor, you are greeted by a living room that offers a flat screen TV and a brand new queen size sleeper Serta sofa, ( serving as a 5th open bedroom). As you walk past the open staircase, you will find an open floor plan offering a private powder room, dining table that sits 8 people, an open family room, offering furnishings with three couches and another 55" LED Smart 4K TV with DVD and cable with DVR and entertainment center with over 100 DVDs to chose from ranging from children to mature audience. There are also books and plenty of board games to chose from.The kitchen is warm and inviting with breakfast bar for 5 and 8 at dining table as part of the open floor plan. So there is seating for 13 people. There is a bedroom on the ground floor equipped with a queen size bed, flat screen TV and cable with DVR and ceiling fan. Adjacent to the room, is a large walk in laundry room off the kitchen, also equipped with washer, dryer, and beach chairs, umbrellas and kids pool toys.There is a fabulous, unobstructed view of the pool from the living areas and kitchen.

There are two sets of french doors in the family room which lead to the large awning that covers the patio area overlooking the extremely private resort style pool with waterfall. Some townhouses claim to have pools but they are shared or very small, so be sure to ask. I have a full size 15x 30 pool which is the largest pool in LBS for a townhouse.

The rear patio offers 4 lounge chairs, 3 spare chairs and outside dining table for 8, a stainless steel BBQ and a charcoal grill, as well.

Off the foyer of the second floor, you will find the master suite which offers a king size bed, a flat screen TV, DVD player and cable with DVR and ceiling fan. There is also a full size crib in the corner of the room and out of the way. There is also a large walk-in closet and a private balcony with 2 chairs and a small table overlooking the yard and pool. The very private master bathroom offers a full size jacuzzi spa tub, a separate glass shower and 2 separate vanity sinks on either side of bathroom with large mirrors, blow dryer and a ceiling fan. The toilet is enclosed and even has a phone! Bedroom two has a low European style platform king size bed, built in night stands a flat screen TV, DVD player, cable with DVR. Bedroom three offers twin beds, nightstands flat screen TV, cable with DVR and ceiling fan. There is a second full size bathroom with tub and shower. There is also a pack and play crib in the linen closet and vacuum in between the bath and bedrooms.

HD, TV, WI-FI throughout the home.

This villa is ideal for individuals and large families in search of a relaxing getaway, in an extremely private setting, with the convenient accessibility to everything Lauderdale by the Sea and greater Fort Lauderdale has to offer.

It is not suited for loud parties at night as this is a very family oriented home. This is for groups of adults or families that like peace and quiet surroundings. So if you are looking to stay up late at night outside, this is not the right home for that. There are plenty of bars in the area to do your "partying" fun outside ;)

I hope to see you soon at Villa Pine and hope to make your vacation a fab memory that will last you a lifetime and hopefully want to come back to.

About Sandra Naylor

I am a long time local resident. I am not a rental agency so therefore like to greet my guests personally and am happy to provide with any helpful information on dining, recreation and nightlife, or anything else you may need assistance with, while your stay here at Villa Pine. You can reach me at any time. I take pride in my personal assistance with my guests as this is also my home where I once lived. I do not consider it a hotel but more like sharing a lovely place to help you have a relaxing, fun and memorable holiday with your family/firends. I can also be a concierge, at no charge, if you need to book car reservations, restaurants, or anything you may need prior your stay at Villa Pine. Just let me know in advance , when you book with me and I will take care of your needs if you're not familiar with the area or perhaps simply from another country and need help with the language.

Sandra Naylor purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Sandra Naylor chose Greater Fort Lauderdale

It feels like a little Shangri-La nestled in a very quiet street and completely private. The street starts at intercoastal and ends at the ocean. Children are safe to play outside and there is safety police cars that drive around at least 4 times a week. I lived here with my own children so I know what a great place it is to be here. My kids loved it and so do my family and friends.

What makes this townhome unique

Feels like a home not a rental, in a small, quaint beach side friendly community with a great pool! Very safe environment. My home is the only townhome in all of Lauderdale by the Sea that has a regular size 15 x 30 pool not shared.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family has rented before in Fort Lauderdale and we just loved this area now. Its a great little town by the beach. The villa is located really close by the shops and the beach as well. It suited us all just fine as far as sleeping and hanging out. The house is plentiful and clean. Its true when she says you don't need anything, just bathing suits. The owner was terrific and we hope to rent again soon if we can.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Pine just before Easter and it was very confortable for our family of 5: we even had extra bedrooms ! The house is well maintained and has everything you need for cooking (spices...) and for young kids: beach toys, DVDs, even high chairs and playpen, which we did not use as our youngest is 4. The pool was the largest pool that we've seen in Fort Lauderdale when compared to the other houses we've rented there: superbe! The house is located on a very quiet street and is within a 5-minute walk to the beach on that same street! It is just a minute away from a grocery store and a few minutes from multiple restaurants/shops. When we arrived, Easter chocolates awaited the kids: what a treat for them! Sandra even checked up on us to ensure we had everything we needed. We are looking forward to returning eventually for another family vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your very detailed review. I try to keep as much in the home for my guests ( specially in the kitchen), so that they don't have to shop for things they may only use once or twice. And you are right, my pool is a large pool for homes in this area. usually townhouses have shared or just dipping pools but mine is 15 x 30 which is fab when you have 10 people or just lots of kids ;) Little details like chocolates and things for kids are the fun for me to do because I had 3 little ones and know that means a lot for mom and dads. Checking on my guests is something I take pride in because I want them to know that I am available for anything that will help the vacation a very easy and enjoyable memory in your life. Finally, you cannot beat the location. It truly is the best all at just a block away. Thanks again and hope to see you all soon!

The house is situated in walking distance of everything I needed, a sleepy little Publix, a Dunks, fantastic nail salon, CVS ... and Kate.Yoga in the same little shopping center was great! The beach was quiet and spacious...The area from Pines entrance seems to be little used and perfectly quiet. The house itself was a great! Comfortable in size and beds appliances and amenities all there (I contributed some measuring cups and spoons to the house :-) In all honesty, it could probably use a deep clean, but I'm sure that's hard between tenants and the busy season... AND it's a beach house at heart!!! The pool was so nice and quiet; truly relaxing and became our teenage girls hang-out. Town is a walk or quick car ride away with several great restaurants. AND Sandra went out of her way to find the things that we were looking for during our stay. Would definitely rent again!

Owner's Response: Thanks tremendously for your review! Yes, Its been quite a busy season and I do appreciate all constructive criticism. As soon as we don't have a back to back check in/out, we will go in and do the deep cleaning we have not had a chance to do. And also, good point, it is a beach house at heart for sure! Very casual and comfortable. But overall we do make sure all is clean for each and everyone that checks in. That is one big priority for my home. It was my pleasure helping get the things you needed to make your vacation even better. I love doing it so always readily available to do so ;) Hope to see you back again soon!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Pine! Perfect location to the beach, grocery and town. We walked everywhere, no need for a car. With our four small children and grandparents in tow; the property was perfect for our needs. Great pool out back with room to relax and everything looked just like we expected, better really. Sandra was attentive and quick to respond to any questions throughout the rental process as well as the week we vacationed. We would LOVE to come back someday.

Owner's Response: Thank you and thrilled that your stay was everything you wanted and needed. I try to tend to my guests as soon as possible, should there be an issue, so that there are no interruptions during your stay. Location, location, location is definitely one of the many reasons to stay at my home. Like you said, you don't even need a car as everything is literally walking distance. Happy to hear the home was just as described and like the photos. I am truthful about that. I hope to see you again soon at Villa Pine!

We stayed at this wonderful home for a week. We rent houses often on vacation and the first thing that really stood out to me was it had EVERYTHING you would need and much more than the typical rental (towels, beach chairs, shopping cart, tons of movies, coffee filters, detergents, etc). We felt like we were living at "home" vs a "rental".

Sandra (the owner) is wonderful. She met us at the beginning of the week to show us everything, and was accessible anytime we had a question. You can tell the house reflects her great taste and class.

The location is incredible! 2 blocks from the beach, a very short walk to grocery store, subway, dunkin donuts, and lots of cool local restaurants that we could walk to daily. You could easily uber from airport and you wouldn't need a car the rest of the week if you just wanted to go to restaurants and beach.

Pool (super clean) was also great when we wanted to stick around house and just relax. There was a grill that we used a few nights, great to BBQ around the pool.

The pictures are very much exactly what you will find when you get to the home.

We will DEFINITELY be back and would recommend this to anyone looking for a great home away from home.

Owner's Response: It was my absolute pleasure having you and the girls stay at my home. I am thrilled they had a great time and now have some great memories to remember her birthday by. I think even with all of you in the house you were quite comfortable and enjoyed every aspect of my home. I know the location was ideal as everyone could walk to the restaurants and bars and the beach. Like you mentioned, you really didn't even need a car. That's the beauty of this location. And there is always the free Pelican Hopper if needed. Thanks again and hope to see you guys for the next celebration!

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Pine and it accommodated our two families (4 adults, 3 young kids) wonderfully! The house is very spacious and nicely appointed. We greatly appreciated all the items for young kids (crib, playpen, high chairs, beach toys, DVDs, etc). The backyard was very private and the pool was warm enough for the kids to swim (very important to us!). The house is located on a very quiet street (another bonus) and is within walking distance to everything - grocery store, beach, park, restaurants/shops. The owner, Sandra, was a pleasure to deal with. She's very responsive and accommodating. She even went above and beyond by letting me know that I had forgotten a pair of glasses behind at the house (I assumed I had lost them on the airplane) and promptly mailed them back to me. I am grateful and very impressed. I would highly recommend Villa Pine and we are looking forward to returning again for another family vacation!

Owner's Response: There is nothing like reading an email where someone took the time to point out all the amenities my home has to offer. Because I have such a large number of guests with young families and small children, I like to accommodate them with at least the basics and throw in a few more little things to make the stay even better. The location of my home, as you mentioned, is unbeatable! Specially for walking to the beach and restaurants and shops, even for people of all ages. And yes there is plenty of room for everyone to have their space. I am always readily available for my guests as they are my priority, even after they are gone, as in your case, to assist them with things left behind that I know are of importance. I am so thrilled you had a great time and that you were comfortable in my home. That's the most important point of all. Thanks again for the time you took to write this well appointed review ;) Hope to see you again soon in the future!
