Notes:
Lauderdale by the Sea – Enjoy the charm of a Small Florida Beach Town! The town stretches from the Atlantic Oceanwest to the famous Intracoastal Waterway. Everything is conveniently located in this charming seaside village. You find locally owned shops with artisan jewelry, beach clothing and gift items, as well as bistro-style eateries, icecream shops, bakeries and pubs. The common areas have been designed with relaxing in mind: public plazas where you sit in Adirondack chairs and chat with your friends. The Town's shoreline is a mecca for scuba divers with coral reefs teeming with marine life less than 100yards off the beach. It’s easy to snorkel or dive right from our sandy beach -and of course fishing from the historic pier over the ocean, the most iconic place to visit. The Anglins Pier is an important part of the city. It is open24/7 for fishing and featuring a café with occasional live music. A car is not needed in Lauderdale by the Sea.

Unclean, poorly kept

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here on vacation from November 26, 2017 through December 3rd, 2017. We arrived late in the evening the first day, but immediately had issues with the property the next morning.

1. When we looked at the sheets on the beds in the kids room, we noticed that there were blood stains on several of the sheets and mattress pads. The sheets in the beds my kids slept in appeared ok (the mattress pad on one had a blood stain on it) however 2 of the other beds in the room with the double bunks and twin had blood smears and hair on the sheets. Several of the towels were dirty, stained and ripped as well. I removed all the sheets from the beds and had to start washing/replace them. The property manager came by with new sheets and towels and dropped them off, however because there was only one person to assist and all the sheets to wash in the only working washer and dryer, I ended up making half the beds and doing wash for the sheets and towels and covers for the first 2 days of my vacation. We never did get all of the sheets for the beds that needed replacing.

2. The pool heater was not working properly and we were unable to comfortably use the pool until it was fixed two days later.

3. There were small black bugs in the living couch.

4. The dishes and cooking supplies were dirty and there was a lot of items missing or broken (cooking utensils, baking pans, toaster, Tupperware)

5. There were very few household or cleaning supplies on arrival so I had to purchase them the next morning. There was no broom (the manager eventually dropped one off), no cleaning products, dish and laundry detergent only for a single load, one roll of paper towels, no extra trash bags,etc.

We spoke to the property manager several times in regards to the issues of the property. We wanted to leave the property on our first day, but were told although we could leave, the amount paid was non-refundable. Although they attempted to fix some of the issues after the initial day of stay, our vacation was ruined for the first three days as I was washing all the sheets and towels in the house, shopping for household supplies and cleaning so we could actually stay in the house. I took pictures of the sheets, towels, and dishes to send to vrbo as well. We were extremely disappointed in the property and the way our concerns were addressed (or not addressed). We spent nearly $800 a night for this property and the first 3 days of our family vacation were ruined. I would not recommend.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately there was a few issues which was all taken care of in a timely manner. This home is a 2.5 million mansion and we never had any reviews like this . We asked the guest numerous times if there was something else that was wrong. They responded that all was fixed. We only provide a startup kit in each bathroom and kitchen. This is not a hotel so if they need more trash bags they will have to go buy at the store. We did this time to make them happy. Unfortunately this client we could not make happy . Always two sides of the story... Best, Gizmogroup

So peaceful and private!

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful. The back of the house was perfect for evening gatherings and sit around and chat. The rooms and beds were comfortable. The kitchen was complete and with the open floor plan we could stay connected the entire time. Thanks so much.

Excellent construction and well design architectur

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent. The house is constructed in very good quality with modern style while retaining something classic; recreational areas are very beautiful and the pool also very nice. The backyard view to the marine channel is restful. It is a home that makes you want to live in it permanently.! Congratulations to the owners for the home conservation, maintenance and tasteful.

The HomeAway service was very efficient. Through few contacts via e-mail all questions were answered promptly; the contract was signed without any operational difficulties; and the system to access the house by using only the front door code, is extremely practical. Personal contact was not necessary because everything went smoothly. When travelling, you never know with certainty the arrival time; the authorization of access the house only by the door code is very reassuring in the sense of possible delays that can lead to conflicting personal timing contact, both in and out. Congratulations to HomeAway, and from now on you have in me a frequent customer and strong promoter about the good quality and attention when offering your services..

You can bike or use the free “around Town”Pelican Hopper bus, and the Sun Trolley, which can take you to Fort Lauderdale beach, popular shopping spots, and connect you with other things to do in Fort Lauderdale and nearby. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, old-school seaside charm draws families to the low-key beach alternative to Fort Lauderdale. This is still a place where flip-flops are acceptable, if not encouraged.
