A beautiful vacation home in sunny Florida!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect vacation getaway! Year after year we look forward to spending two weeks in sunny Florida, and Secret Oasis continues to be our favorite vacation home. We had such a relaxing time thanks to this beautiful home, pool, and all the right amenities - thanks for making our stay a great one!

Great Florida Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very well equipped property. Everything you need is supplied. And the backyard is a tropical paradise, complete with a tiki roof that provides welcome shade from the hot Florida sun. This is an exceptional home that is sure to please. My only suggestion for improvement is a TV for the master bedroom.

Unforgettable blissful perfection

  • 5 of 5

How do you describe perfection? There is simply no way to write about it - you have to experience it in order to fully understand. I cannot stop thinking about your amazing home Tom & Denis. I am calling your Secret Oasis "home" not a "house" because only at home full of love you can feel so good and peaceful.

We traveled to many different countries and many beautiful places, but none of them left us with this incredible feeling of being so welcomed. None of those places had this specific "aura" that you have created in your Secret Oasis. Every single detail in your home is designed to please whoever is staying there - your pool, beautiful landscaping, comfortable bedrooms, kitchen with all top of the line appliances and gadgets, unbelievable Tiki Hut and those candles ..... all simply amazing. Would you believe that this was our first time in Fort Lauderdale and we spent only 1 hr on the beach? Nothing could really compare with your gorgeous pool and backyard.

Every single time we look at our pictures taken in your home we smile and dream that we will be able to go back soon and experience it all over again. It is hard to forget your home in which we have found this perfect happiness. Thank you so much for putting so much love into your Secret Oasis and making us feel so blissful there!

The property was as beautiful as the pictures shown.

  • 5 of 5

The house included everything you could need and more. We spent a lot of time enjoying the back area , pool, hot tub, tiki,and beautiful tropical landscaping. The property was very well kept and clean. The property manager, Bobby very accommodating. We wouldn't hesitate to rent "Secret Oasis" again if we visit Fort Lauderdale.

The gift of serenity in an oasis

This is my second visit to this extraordinary place of peace, serenity, beauty and especially friendship. Lifelong memories have been made here; not only for the incredible accommodations but also for the true sentiment of paradise that inhabits this wonderful oasis. Thank you for a truly blessed experience.

Truly Sublime

  • 5 of 5

We eagerly looked forward to our third annual month-long visit to Secret Oasis and we were not disappointed. In fact, we looked at one another at the same time and each said, 'It's even better than I remembered!' Every surface in the house was absolutely spotless and gleaming when we walked in. The ceiling fans in the bedrooms were softly spinning offering their welcoming hum to the melody of fountains gently cascading into the swimming pool in the backyard. This has truly become a second home for us and we immediately relaxed. The constant hubbub of a commercial hotel cannot compare to the total privacy of a rental home that is as nicely furnished, well-equipped and meticulously maintained as this one is. From this location you have the same easy access to the beaches, many fine restaurants, and recreational activities but the use of the pool and hot tub can be enjoyed at your leisure without the intrusion of overheard cell phone conversations or someone else's choice of music. This is a home that will totally envelop you in a cocoon of tranquility. The lush, tropical garden is beautifully groomed and the pool is cleaned weekly leaving nothing to do but luxuriate in the outdoor space that has been created to maximize enjoyment of the glorious Florida sunshine. Mid-month we invited our daughter and her family to join us for a long weekend and they too quickly fell under the spell of this little slice of paradise. We had great meals at both Blue Moon Fish Company (upscale seafood) and Casa D'Angelo (upscale Italian) but also took advantage of the modern kitchen and cooked for ourselves most days. As the weeks passed, the stress of our everyday lives melted away and our month in the sun filled us with enough optimism to last through the year that we must patiently wait until we return again. I have absolutely no hesitation in whole-heartedly recommending this property!
