Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Morning tea and evening drinks on the quiet lanai, clean, adorable Florida décor, comfy living room, quick walk to the beautiful, heated pool and under-used shuffleboard, nice beds, close to grocery stores and restaurants...what's not to love?! We stayed here (near my brother) so my octogenarian parents could decompress from flying from Illinois for a wedding in the Keys and is was a perfect place to do just that. The only disappointment was we couldn't stay longer! Claire was so helpful before and during our visit. Thank you, Claire!

Nice place in a safe area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed 3 weeks in this cute home in Tamarac. The neighborhood is safe and nice for walking. We went to the beach often and appreciated the beach chairs and towels provided. The home was clean and well maintained. The owner was available and responded to communication quickly.

Owner's Response: Dear Pat and Chuck, I am happy to hear you were able to get to the beach on your "working vacation" in the Fort Lauderdale area. Thank you for taking good care of our home. We will welcome you back any time! Next time perhaps you will be able to get to the "Last Picture Show" in Tamarac, where you can catch current run movies at only $5. My Mom and I saw 2 movies on our 10 day vacation in November 2016. I am heading down to Florida in January. In addition to "movie nights" I look forward to visiting Butterfly World in Coconut Creek. That might be another attraction to put on your list ... it's so relaxing and refreshing to sit among those "flying flowers".

Great second stay with grandparents & daughter

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed here visiting family in Tamarac, and it was as great as ever! Clean, convenient, fully stocked, with room for four adults and a toddler and access to a nearby and quiet pool. Will absolutely stay again in the future. Thanks, Claire!

Comfortable and quiet property and location.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house for the last two weeks of February and really enjoyed the property and amenities. The house is well maintained and stocked with everything you need. It is dated, but the kitchen and appliances are new and the gas grill was a plus. Loved the PVR and the heated pool just a few houses down. As Canadians, we were in it every day, although the locals were never around. It was like having a private pool! The house was in a lovely 55+ community with friendly neighbors and safe streets for walking even after supper. We were very close to grocery stores, department stores and many shops and restaurants, as well as gas stations and banks. Golf is just minutes from the door, and a drive to the beach is not long. Internet connection was good, and we enjoyed the back patio. If there is anything we could have wished for, it would be a dishwasher, and a screened in patio, but these are minor issues overall, and we would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable private house in an area that does not have major traffic problems. It is still very easy to access all major highways if you wish to visit attractions. We hope to stay he again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about our home in Tamarac. You've hit the nail on the head about its best features. I always enjoy the peace and quiet in the neighborhood, contrasted with all the resources available just outside the residential area. And the pool is grand if you don't feel like a drive to the beach. We thought about a dishwasher when we re-did the kitchen, but just could not come up with the space to put it. We are thinking about screening in the patio. One of the hurricanes blew the screening away, and we never saw any insects while we sat outside, so we just let it go. But it would add privacy, I must agree, and I think insects do show up in the summer months. Thank you for taking good care of our home. You are welcome back any time!

We enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures were an accurate showing of the property. The backyard was a little smaller than expected, but still adequate room for a few chairs to enjoy the sunshine. The pool was perfect! It was a very short walk and we went almost every day. We had the entire large pool to ourselves every day but one! The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We enjoyed taking walks in the evening and everyone we passed was friendly. There were plenty of restaurants to choose from within a 5-8 minute drive. There were a few in walking distance too.

We went to the beach one day and had no problem with parking. We got there about 10:30. By 11:30, there were cars circling looking for spots, so just get there in decent time and you should have no issues. The beach was clean, had a shower to get the sand off, and was not a long trek from the parking lot. You do have to pay per hour for parking. There were also lounge chairs and umbrellas available for rent on the beach if you didn't want to carry as much.

We already received our deposit back 3 days after we left Tamarac and the owner was responsive to our texts during out stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review! We are so glad you enjoyed our home and the beach, pool and restaurants. About beach parking, in the past you had to bring a double handful of quarters to the beach for the meters. Now it's credit cards, dollar bills or change, which is an improvement. Some parking lots cost less than others, but if you're like my family, everyone is too impatient to get onto the beach to shop around. It is fortunate the that pool is so close to the house, and so quiet. The residents seem to think that it's too cold in winter to swim in the pool, which leaves the pool use to guests. That's a benefit in my mind! I find it remarkable how quiet the neighborhood is, in contrast to the stores, theaters, and other amenities that surround the development. It makes a perfect set up, in my opinion. The friendly neighbors are a plus too. You are welcome back any time. Regards, Claire Murphy

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of five who spent Christmas and New Year's holidays in this house in Tamarac and really enjoy staying there. It is realy close from attractions and malls, considering the distances between places in the United States. There are many things you want to do when you are on vacation specially, not being home, but even staying home was nice in this place. Really quiet, even we don't like such a silence, we enjoyed it. When we go on vacation again if we go to Fort Lauderdale, this is the place where we will stay. Everything was nice, even the refund amount, it was really done within the appropriate time. Really enjoyable place.
