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

  • 5 of 5

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!

This was my third stay at Secret Oasis over the past few years. Each time it gets better and better. I'm really not sure where to begin? The biggest addition (and I mean BIG) is the Tiki hut. It’s not so much a hut as it is an incredible, poolside living/dining and relaxing area made from authentic palm fronds, post and beam wood frame and an up-lit vaulted thatched roof, transporting you to other tropical locales like Bali or Tahiti (without the jet lag and cost). If you’re seeking a convenient location to absolutely everything, in a spotlessly clean, thoughtfully appointed and completely private tropical paradise, I suggest you stop your search here. The name “oasis” is an apt one. I don’t think the grounds and house could come closer to the true meaning. To say there is a personal touch that goes beyond would be a flagrant understatement. Tom & Denis have taken hospitality standards and customer service to a level rarely seen in even the most expensive of hotels. Thank you again!

Our Favorite Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Every year we discuss where to vacation, and we can't wait to get back to Secret Oasis. This is was our 5th year, and it never disappoints. The owners are great to work with and it is obvious that they take great pride in their vacation home. We can’t wait to return next year. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review Rick! Believe it or not, I think this was actually your SEVENTH year in a row at Secret Oasis. You're our most loyal guests and we appreciate it! We love repeat guests and this is what we have aimed for from the start. We want our guests to think of Secret Oasis as their home away from home.

Location idéale !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un peu plus de 10 jours à Fort Lauderdale où nous avons passé nos vacances en famille (2 adultes et 3 enfants de 17-15 et 10 ans). Nous sommes revenus enchantés ! La maison à tout ce qu'il faut pour passer des vacances idéales : quartier résidentiel calme,magnifique jardin, piscine chauffée à la température idéale, équipement optimal de la maison et des espaces extérieurs : de nombreux ustensiles dans la cuisine, barbecue Weber... La maison est située à une dizaine de minutes de la plage et à proximité des commerce.

Nous recommandons particulièrement cette location.
