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 Fort Lauderdale

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.

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.

Very Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. Nice fenced in back yard. Nice pool. Nice location. Nice people to deal with as well. Curtis and Kathy are real people and very easy to deal with from the early on booking part to the actual stay. Cant ask for anything more in renting a home. Thanks a million....

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!
