About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Between House and Pool Cabana.

Welcome to this Stunning Las Olas House: This 3 bedroom, 3 bath well appointed Mediterranean Home with ultra private pool is located right off Las Olas Boulevard, the main, upscale shopping district in Greater Fort Lauderdale. What a location this is! The home is nestled in the oldest neighborhood and directly east of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Not only can you walk to the best shopping and eating in the city, but the free beach trolley to our world famous beaches picks you up one block from the house.

The 3rd bedroom/bathroom is located in the pool side cabana.

Things to do: We hear all the time from our returning guests, the best thing, after a fun filled day at the private pool, or day at the beach is walking to the finest restaurants and shopping South Florida has to offer. You can literally stroll to a different restaurant each evening. Italian, Greek, French, Sushi, Mexican and American Continental establishments, as well as a 24 hour diner are a 2 minute walk from your front door. Numerous bars and night spots also adorn this popular thoroughfare.

Don't feel like dining out some nights?? Then walk to the Mediterranean Market just a block from the house, and make dinner for your family and friends. Our well appointed kitchen comes with new granite counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, and, of course plenty of cooking and dinnerware. The house has a private dining room, and an outdoor dining table snuggled into a private patio. This is by far the best location to be if you want everything from one location with our without a car.

This home is well appointed with a 60 inch plasma screen, antenna TV, wireless internet, security alarm, luxury bed linens, comforters. The 3rd bedroom is a cozy private bungalow next to the pool. Sleep with the doors open and listen to the water drip down your own private waterfall. This used to be our private home, but after a total renovation, we have now converted it to a high-end vacation property.

As a local family, we are available to answer questions and provide a variety of recommendations. Here are some of our favorite things to do near the house. Bike to the beach, walk the weekly green market on Sunday, catch a show at the world renown Performing Arts Center, site see on the water taxi, visit Colee Hammock Park on the New River, and shop the wonderful boutiques on Las Olas. This is the perfect for a couples get-a-way or family vacation.

GETTING AROUND: One of the special things about our location is that is it literally in the middle of everything. You can get around quite easily from the house in a variety of ways. The house is a 5-10 minute ride from the airport depending on traffic. It is a perfect location for a family who is not renting a car.

As we said before, you can walk to Las Olas, the main shopping district, with lots of great stores and fantastic restaurants. You can learn more by searching in your browser las olas boulevard.

Second, the Sun Trolley picks up a block away from the house, and services from downtown to the beach. It is a fun way to get around town. You can search Sun Trolley, Fort Lauderdale. Finally, Fort Lauderdale has a water taxi service. This also picks up a few blocks from the house and services all of the intercoastal. You can search water taxi, Fort Lauderdale.

Nearby grocery stores: Publix, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Winn Dixie

Why Tatiana Piedrahita (Property Manager) chose Downtown

Location. Location. Location. Beware of other rentals that say they are close to the action. This is the real deal. The house is in Colee Hammock the oldest and quaintest neighborhood in the city. I love the house because of the pool, and that one of the rooms is a bungalow next to the pool. You can't believe you are in the middle of downtown! You can just walk to so many places!!! South Florida is a great place to be and a great place to vacation.

What makes this house unique

Private pool if you want to stay in and walkable to some of the best Fort Lauderdale has to offer, if you want to head out for the day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Because we had 4 girls ages 17 through 19, safety and local transportation was extremely important! This beautiful home located within the quaint, upscale area of Las Olas gave us a "peace of mind" when the girls traveled back and forth from the beach and shopping areas. David and his group made sure everything was perfect concerning our stay and then left us alone! We had all the confidence that they were only a phone call away. Two of the girls loved staying in the outdoor cabana and the other two loved the front room with an exquisite outside balcony. You could open windows and doors and enjoy the day both inside the house and out! I recommend a vehicle but it is totally possible to enjoy your stay without one. We will be back....GUARANTEED!!!!!

Beautiful home in a beautiful area! Good customer service! The backyard was a little shady for sun-lovers, but hope to have some trees trimmed before our next stay : ) Was very satisfied and will be returning soon!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our two kids - 10 & 14yrs old. The house is located in a very safe neighborhood. You can walk to Las Olas Blvd, which has tons of restaurants to choose from. The beach is a 7 minute drive or 15-20 min bike ride away. We were provided bikes as well. The house overall is nicely maintained. Tatiana meet us at the house when we arrived and was helpful and accessible via phone/text. We would definitely recommend this house to future families looking to vacation if Fort Lauderdale!

Beautiful & Charming!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, quaint home. Very cozy & clean, and just a quick walk to downtown Los Olas where there is plenty to do and see. The home has all the amenities one could ask for, and we especially loved the heated pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Outstanding property! Everything was as described and pictured. In fact, even better. We really loved staying in this home and will definitely be back.

A true paradise, heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

This dream house is true to the pictures. Every detail in every room eminates a tropical atmosphere that screams relax, forget all your worries!! The pool, with its tropic island setting and privacy transports you to the garden of eden. Upon our arrival, Dave welcomed us into his home. He truly wanted us to be comfortable and at ease on our vacation. David quickly showed me around and left us to enjoy our stay. I did not have an opportunity to meet Steve but the few questions we had in the beginning of our stay were quickly and pleasantly answered by David or Steve. This home is one for all ages. Around the corner is Las Olas Blvd. where you can eat from a different country every night. The beach is close by. Drive, take the trolly or bus. My son and his friend even walked for the exercise. I took a me day and walked around the corner for a massage and manipedi. Thanks David for your hospitality. Looking forward to seeing you again!
