Guestbook comments from the owner

Access to the rental was very easy and convenient! All of the bedding and linens were fresh and clean and the unit was in good condition. Very nice large TV. Great shower pressure! We ate at the restaurant in the lobby which was very good! The unit is walking distance to the very quaint area of Lauderdale by the sea and also close to a great bakery called panne dolci on oakland park blvd. The # 11 or #36 bus can be caught across the street on A1A and make getting downtown a breeze! The elevators in the building are very fast and access to the beach is so easy! The public halls of the building are clean and quiet! A grocery store is only a couple blocks away, we bought some fruit and breakfast food and some tv dinners to have as snacks in the room! The room is not very large but the host makes excellent use of all of the space. I have only good things to say! Chris also checked in via the airbnb website to make sure everything was ok with our stay!

OK property and location but unreasonable owner

  • 3 of 5

Pros: close to beach and grocery store, clean room. Cons: Tiny "kitchen" corner, low quality mattresses. Hotel pool was heated only 3 out of 7 days. Beach spot rental required even without a chair. What shocked us, though, was the owner’s unreasonableness. Despite leaving the room in excellent condition, she charged us $13 for a decorative plastic tray that we didn’t damage or lose. After telling her we left it in the kitchen cabinet she wrote, “I don’t play hide and seek. This is no joke.” A person with integrity would have returned our full deposit. We followed all of the rules that were taped on the walls. Beware of being scammed.

Owner's Response: The guest arrives in the apartment and hides things in the less likely places. The maid has no time to seek, this is no joke, she notified me that she did not find the metal tray. I did the replacement and charged the guest according to agreement. Polite people do not take things from places and hide. I do not have time to play hide and seek.

Look for damages prior to stay

  • 2 of 5

We had a great stay at this apartment, and the landlord was very helpful with things we needed to know prior to our stay. Things became a nightmare when we were notified that our deposit was being deducted for damages that were already at the apartment. My advice: Take inventory of everything that is in the room, and take pictures of anything that you see wrong with the room. The landlord will try to deduct them from you.

Owner's Response: He was the worst guest I've ever had. He did not know how to respect my property and me. He's not polite or friendly. I really don't recommend him.

Small, but cozy for 2. Clean

  • 4 of 5

Small apartment but conveniently located. Walking distance to Lauderdale by the Sea with restaurants, bars & a few shops. Only downfall is Everything is very costly and lots of added fees. Unable to checkout right at 11 due to late departure and was charged over half of a night’s cost to stay for 2 additional hours.
