Why Sabrina Montemerani chose Fort Lauderdale

this property is very cute, with a nice waterway view, walk distance to Galeria Mall, Publix, Fort Lauderdale Beach, restaurants, shops, and Movie Theater.

Off Victoria Park.

The car is not necessary. Very friendly neighbor. Bus stop in front of the property

Guestbook comments from the manager

Therefore this way.

Thank you so much, we have enjoyed your apartment so much - and Ft.Lauderdale, it will not be the last time we stay here. Please say thanks to Matt too - he was so kind to catch up almost every day. We enjoyed your veranda very much.

Thank you also for answering all my questions before we arrived.

Great stay, clean and quiet as we were expected

  • 4 of 5

It was our first time in Fort Lauderdale and we really enjoy the location of the rental and the city.

The rental is located in a quiet street along the water but close to all commodities : Shops, Beaches and even a Bicycle station that we used to discover the area.

The Apartment is well equipped and really clean.

Sabrina the property manager is really nice and responsive.

We definitely recommended this place :-)

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away from Boston for a week, so we decided to stay in Sabrina's 1-bedroom apartment.

Everything met our expectations. The apartment itself fit the listing description and was clean and comfortable, with a fully-stocked kitchen, internet and a great porch overlooking the canal. We enjoyed eating meals on the porch and exploring local beaches, parks, shops and restaurants. The apartment is in a great location so we didn't have to drive far to find a beach or restaurant. It's even pretty close to the airport.

Matt (the groundskeeper?) was super-friendly and attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. We were also fortunate to have friendly neighbors (the people upstairs and the people living on the boats in the canal).

All in all, it was exactly what we needed. We had a great time and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway at an affordable price.

This is the first time we are using "homeaway" - and surely not the last time. Thank you Sabrina for answering all my questions before and for letting us rent your beautiful appartment. Thank you Matt for checking up almost every day. We will let all our friends here in Denmark know about this wonderful place.

Loved our THIRD stay at Villa Aruba!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were back for the THIRD time at our favourite "Dock Cottage" in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Two NEW air conditioners, NEW couch, NEW coffee table, NEW bedroom drapes enhanced an already beautifully eauipped apartment. The biggest draw, besides the perfect location off Sunrise Blvd., is the tranquil deck where the sun rises on the beautiful moored boats 30 feet from the door. This has become our 'HomeAway' thanks to a very conscientious owner (Matt) and prooerty manager (Sabrina). You won't be disappointed!!!!!

Great place to stay, the apartment was clean. The kitchen was well equiped. And the outside deck was very cozy, perfect place to enjoy the sun. Sabrina and the owner was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if we are going to ft lauderdale.
