Awesome condo on the beach with amazing tiki bar downstairs

  • 5 of 5

Chris' condo is very well taken care of and in the perfect location. The tiki bar downstairs was one of the best parts of the trip. Great drinks and great food. We ended up eating at the tiki bar for dinner numerous nights because the price was right and the drinks were strong. They have an great happy hour M-F from 4-7. The beach has rental lounge chairs and umbrellas which we rented each day. There is a great coffee bar downstairs for the mornings. This is almost like a 3 bedroom because of the extra room off the master bedroom has a futon. Lauderdale-by-the-sea is .9 miles down the beach and has shopping, restaurants and a pier. We thought we would spend most of our time there but ended up liking the private beach at the condo the best. The opposite way of Lauderdale-by-the-sea is Las Olas blvd and the Fort Lauderdale beach. There are tons of restaurants, bars and shopping. This was my first time using VRBO and it was a great experience. I would come back!

Nice but not the best

  • 3 of 5

Pretty location. Too many stipulations to staying in the condo that made it difficult to relax. Everywhere you look you see that you will be charged for any infraction. Yet, two of the kitchen chairs were broken. The furniture was cheap and the beds were not comfortable. There was a loud bang every time the AC went on or off.

The sun room was lovely and the couch in the main room was comfortable.

Owner's Response: The apartment is as pictured has nothing broken and no one complained about the beds until today. This guest wants expensive and luxurious things searched in the wrong place, we have no hidden rules all are on the website. Next time I recommend a luxury hotel that meets all your requirements and you will pay at least $2000.00 per night in a 2 bedroom with 2 king size beds.

It was ok. Not my first pick.

  • 3 of 5

The area was nice. The walk to the pier was a short distance. The Tiki bar was good.having access to the ocean was awesome. The room was nice but just not big enough. It says sleeps 6 but that’s a stretch because there is only 2 beds and the rest are futons. You only get 4 towels and wash cloths so plan to do laundry. Chris was quick to respond to questions.

Owner's Response: I will never know how many towels would be enough for 3 days of stay. The guest has an obsession for towels barely arrived and asked if there were more towels without having checked the closet. 4 bath towels, 4 toilet, 4 hand, and 4 beach towels are not enough? The apartment is as described, has 2 king size beds and 1 double sofa bed.

Comfortable unit to stay in.

  • 3 of 5

This condo was very well looked after but starting to show its age. The air conditioning was very noisy and we had no control of it. We found we were chilly at times and would’ve liked to turn it up. There is only one bathroom in this unit and it is off the main bedroom which made it kind of awkward for nighttime use. We found it well-stocked for the necessary items needed. The area was great close to grocery store and some shopping and the beach and the tiki bar were great, although the beach is shaded in the afternoon as the buildings hide the sun.

Nice place right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The condo is on the ocean. There are stores and restaurants in walking distance. There is a great tiki bar and well taken car of pool on site. We went with another couple and the only problem we had is that the bathroom is off one of the bedrooms. Other than that the place is clean and well taken care of. The staff are very friendly.
