About Curtis Tanner

I am an Interior and Fashion Designer with many years in the real estate market. I have an eye for beauty, and I think I know what it takes to please the fussiest world traveler, or mom and pop in need of a comfortable getaway with the kids.

Curtis Tanner purchased this house in 2009

Why Curtis Tanner chose Downtown

Why stay in a hotel when you can relax in a private home with all the amenities and conveniences of home? Thats what you get here!! In addition, you will not find a home better suited to enjoy the beach and all Ft Lauderdale has to offer. Central to EVERYTHING... shopping to sightseeing to relaxing on the beach.

What makes this house unique

I designed this home for me to live in, but fate took me in a different direction. What that means is that you will not be staying in a house that was done quick, dirty and cheap as a rental.

One of THE best in Lauderdale!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at and visited many rental properties and this is one of THE best in the Lauderdale area. The neighborhood and proximity to the beach and many good restaurants that are walkable make this an unbeatable location. The icing on the cake, though is the home: a small, elegantly designed and well-maintained house. It is extremely well-stocked with paper goods, soaps, detergents, luxury linens and very comfy beds and pillows. The only thing you need to bring, if you're planning to cook, are groceries, condiments and spices..and of course suncreen for the sunny pool and beach ;) The kitchen has all the necessary appliances (cuisinart, toaster, crockpot, blender, etc) and a huge gas grill. The 2 walk-in closets for each BR offered adequate storage including shelf & drawer space. The owner, Curtis, and Property Manager, Kathy, were both very responsive to the few issues that arose during our 6 week stay. Best of all the house is pet friendly, as is the beach around the corner, which our 2 golden retrievers LOVED. Although the sign at the beach access says no pets, there were many people with dogs, and no one seemed to mind. This is quite the gem and we look forward to coming back for many years.

Poor communication. House and pool were great.

  • 3 of 5

Made mistake of requesting early check in, but owner never informed housekeeper? Home

not prepared, housekeeper not expecting renters and we were locked out with food and

dogs upon arrival. Stuff happens, but it was too hot to wait outside in Florida at noontime

to help stay out of housekeeper's way. We had no car to

leave and it made first day frustrating when cleaning still going 90 minutes later by only

one person. Have had defensive emails from owner, with wine basket.

As frequent VRBO user, communication issue would be reason not to rebook.

Owner's Response: I hope the readers out there would wonder why in three years we have had nothing but 5 STAR reviews, and then suddenly this one. These are all malicious lies told because I refused to give a discount for the guests "inconvenience" upon check in. This after she was already staying at a 30% discounted rate from our normal posted rate. A couple of things; 1. Guest changed her reservation to start a day earlier, but explained to me that she was only doing so to get the weekly rate (cheaper), but was not intending on actually showing up until the following day. 2. My guest ALWAYS arrange their check in directly with the property manager, not me. She texted the original date as her check in... not the earlier date. We have copies of the text!! 3. Guest also requested an earlier check in of 11:00am instead of our normal 4:00pm. And yes... the master bed still had to be made and there were a few bottled waters and condiments in the fridge... that sometimes happens when you arrive a day and a half earlier that you said you would. 4. Guest was not locked out. Although she did arrive unexpectedly, there is a lock-box on the premises, and she was allowed access to a key immediately. 5. The whole process of finalizing the home for our unexpected visitor was less than an hour, and there was no reason for her to have waited outside... if she did in fact do so. 6. The only defensive response I would have had was to deny her repeated requests for a further discount. 7. My biggest problem with this guest is the she belittled my caretaker and property manager. I am not going to go into the whole story, but it was not nice!! That upset me deeply, and I let the guest know so... I am guessing she did not like being called out on that. Finally, the guest apparently tries to add credibility to her story by stating that she is a frequent user, but I looked up her profile here, and it says that I am the only place she has stayed. Poor communication a reason not to book?? Yes, with her, as she is the one who has poor communication, and I have the texts to prove it. It is my opinion that this was all possibly perpetrated in hopes of a discount...

Awesome vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for a family vacation and loved it (again). We had rented the property two years ago and were looking forward to going back. The proximity to the beach and to the little Vista park is a huge plus; the property had everything we needed and was our home away from home for a week; Kathy, the property manager, was incredibly helpful at our check in and check out as well. Thank you Curtis for letting us stay at your property.

Great house. Pictures do not do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed here for a week and did not want to leave. Centrally located and very close to the beach on a quiet street. Pool was fantastic, beach chairs were great and overall amenities were unmatched. Thank you for a wonderful week!
