Overview

Florida Townhome Rental Photos and Description

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 flat screen 42' 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 Florida

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 location, Great Amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, and had everything you would need for a beach vacation! Lots of towels, beach gear, and plenty of space for a big group of friends! It's walking distance to the beach and great restaurants, and the Publix is super close for anything else you might need.

Great vacation house for families

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at The Villa Pine. The house was just as shown in the pictures and it had everything we needed for our beach vacation. It was great to have a private pool and the beach was a short walk away. Sandra was very quick to respond to our needs and we would definitely recommend this house and Lauderdale-by-Sea for a family vacation.

Geart location, quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at the Villa Pine at Lauderdale by the Sea. Exceeded my expectations the property was very clean and well kept.it looked even better in person than the pictures. Great location five minutes or less walk to the grocery store ( Publix ). only a two block walk to the Atlantic Ocean there were 7 adults and 3 children and we were more than comfortable. the owner kept in touch daily through telephone or email and was readily available to meet our needs although we did not have any.. we found so much to do, that I was actually more tired when I left than when I got there. looking forward to going back soon.

Beautiful and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in this home and we all looked forward to returning. It's such a beautiful space and easy to be in with children. The pool area is well maintained. Three blocks from the beach, two blocks to groceries...close to town for restaurants. Sandra is a warm and accommodating owner and easy to work with. Highly recommend!

Beach beach beach!

  • 5 of 5

The best part about this house is the location. A short 2 block walk and your toes will hit the sand! The house was exactly like the pictures. It was really big and roomy for my big family! We enjoyed our stay. Sandra was available when needed. THANKS!! The pool was very clean and the kiddos loved it!

This property had everything you needed, a cart to roll your stuff to the beach, along with umbrellas and lounge chairs! The washer and dryer were terrific and new! We also utilized the grill, which was new and easy to start!

There were enough dishes although I suggest paper plates. The pots and pans could use an update. I also think it would have been nice to have filtered water available. This will help with the environment instead of buying plastic water bottles!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for the time you took to review my home. I'm always so delighted when my guests are happy with their stay. I try and supply pretty much everything you need for the vacation. And yes, I am in the process of getting a brand new fridge so there will be filtered water. Just shopping around for best deal and time to deliver between guests . Again, thrilled you had a great time with your family here and yes, it's true, the pictures and home are exact to description. Thanks for pointing that out to future guests ;)

Great place for a family stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 3 babies stay at this place, and it was perfect for our needs. Everything was kept up and functioning, and the very close proximity to the grocery store was very convenient. The pool was also kept up nicely, and there was pool and beach toys available for our kids. Sandra was really friendly and great at answering our questions.

Also a 2 block walk to the beach, which wasn't crowded the entire time of our stay.

Owner's Response: I am very thankful for your review! I always keep in mind that people have children and babies and try and supply everything I can to accommodate families with necessities. I will also go ahead a purchase a gate for the stairway for kids. Thanks for reminding me that that is a good thing to have ;) Yes, the beach is nice and uncrowded compared to the greater Fort Lauderdale area which is why LBTS is so popular for families. Always nice to hear that I met your expectations and you were comfortable and happy in my home. Hope to see you again soon!
