About Andrew Wright

My name is Andrew Wright and I have been a flight attendant for a major US airline for more than 20 years and understand the needs and desires of the traveler. I was born and raised in the Fort Lauderdale area and can easily guide you to shopping, entertainment and those hidden gems that the tour books overlook. My partner Roberto and I purchased and remodeled the house in 2011.

Andrew Wright purchased this villa in 2011

Why Andrew Wright chose Fort Lauderdale

This is one of the most desireable areas of Fort Lauderdale, with historical homes, tree lined streets and easy access to the beach and the activites on Las Olas Boulevard and Wilton Manors. I grew up in the South Florida area and always dreamed of having a home in the Victoria Park area. This was the fullfilment of a dream.

What makes this villa unique

There is no need for a car in this area. The water taxi is only a short walk away. Picnic in the Colee Hamock park, by the intracostal waterway and just watch the boats go by. Walk to the boat rental area for a day out, or simply continue to the beach. First class dining is also just a walk away. The Galaria shopping mall can also be easily accessed by foot. Wilton Manors night life is just minutes away. Perfect for Christmas on Las Olas or the annual Fort Lauderdale Winterfest boat parade, or the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, simply walk to the intracostal,

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andrew does not miss a thing in stocking this house for comfort. Everything you need and much more is here. The house is appointed so well; it's a joy to be here.

From the well-equipped kitchen with every appliance you may need for yourselves or to entertain guests, to the yards both front and back, with seating and bbq and romantic lighting to the bedrooms with luxurious mattresses, pillows and lush housecoats and towels.

Andrew was so kind, loving, sweet and so eager to make our stay comfortable. Andrew's place has an amazing spacious and bright loft with a second bedroom. It's located in a quiet street in a safe and friendly neighborhood.

Andrew is a great host and his place is so very nice, clean, charming and comfortable! There was a large flat-screen TV with ATT Uverse with too many channels, 2 full bathrooms with all the toiletries you may have forgotten to bring, real modern laundry facilities ready to use. There is a large comfortable living room seating area, a dining room area for 6, desk area area for a really comfortable work station.

Parking is on site for 2 cars. The backyard area, beautifully landscaped and lit, is great for yoga as well or just to gaze at in the evenings because it's as if that exterior space becomes one with the interior living space.

We are most grateful to Andrew and highly recommend his place, should you be in the area. We can not recommend it highly enough! You will certainly not regret it!

Great time, location and place to a spend time in Fort Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely townhouse, unfortunately we only spend one week. The neighborhood is great and quiet. Ten minutes walk to Las Olas, selection of restaurants is unlimited and great shopping. On our arrival at Andrew's place we were welcomed just like if we were at home. Water Taxi, jungle Queen, the beaches and walking Victoria park are a must do. I would not hesitate one second to recommend this lovely place.

Cozy and romantic townhome and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at this lovely townhome. We stay here for a month and find this place very suitable for us. It is well kept very neat and clean. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances, the washer and dryer are top of the line. I have had quests come and stay as well and they have commented on how nice the town home is. When I arrived everything is perfect and looks just as advertised in pictures.The owner has always been there to greet us and easy to contact . The place has everything you need. The master bedroom is amazing. The walk -in closet is a bonus. The dresser has a jewelry drawer that is a women's dream . I wish I had this in my home. I love sitting in the sunken living room in the evenings looking out at the warmly light garden patio . The inside candles that come on automaticly really set a romantic atmosphere. My husband and I enjoyed the television selection as well as the Netflix. I look forward to my mornings having breakfast in the courtyard, It is very nice and comfortable . The owner has gone to great trouble to make this a wonderful place to relax in a private setting.

However if you want to venture out of this little sanctuary you will only have to walk a short distance to beautiful Las Olas. My husband and I walked to Las Olas many times, the shops are unique. You will see things I am sure you can not find elsewhere. There are a good variety of restaurants within a comfortable walking distance. I have to say the Cheesecake Factory is our favorite. The meals are alway bang on and reasonably priced, the cheesecake is out of this world. Rocos tacos is fantastic as well , Tuesday night is all you can eat Tacos. Best tacos ever , but the steak taco was our favourite. We went on the Jungle Queen dinner cruise which is a 5 minute drive away. This is an amazing cruise and when we come back I know we will do it again. Also if you are exercisers as my husband I are, then you will love Pivotal Fitness, just a 5 minute drive away . We were able to get a snowbird special for $ 75.00 for the month. This is a great gym with everything and then some. The grocery store is just minutes up the road. This townhome is very well located to everything . But best of all were our walks in the evening through Victoria Park the neighborhood is beautiful. We are adventurious people so this is a great place to launch from to most places
