Why The Owner chose Fort Lauderdale

This property was my first in Florida and I stayed there myself for 12 yrs.

I chose to buy this property because of it's close proximity to the beach and I saw potential to turn this into the perfect blend of 'Old Florida' with modern amenities.

This house under went a major renovation including adding a full size, heated pool.

I lived in several properties after that but

still love and miss this house.

Enjoy your stay!

What makes this house unique

beautiful, bright airy house,

but my favorite is still the private tropical backyard with its over-sized brick deck and pool.

This was a beautiful home. The house's appliances were updated and it had an overall nice and cozy vibe. The pool area was awesome as well!!!

Room for improvement.

  • 3 of 5

We have rented properties in various countries across the world for many years so we know what is good and what is not so good. First the good, this is a nice property in a good location with easy access to the main roads in and around fort lauderdale. It is in good repair and has everything you need. However...there are a few simple things that would improve the property. First of all we arrived around 4pm after a long flight from England and there wasn't even any chilled water or juice for us. Not a lot to ask. We had to go straight out to the local publix supermarket straight away, not ideal after travelling for 18 hours! Most properties usually have a little welcome pack, we have had things like chips and dips and wine at one property (also in florida) to freshly made moussaka and home grown fruit and vegetables. The garden was a mess and the pool dirty. The garden needs some serious tidying and trimming back. The dishwasher was full of the previous renters dirty dishes. There was an apple core in a cupboard and a mosquito in the freezer! There was no local info and no "how stuff works" manual. There was a only a tiny amount of hand wash in the bathrooms and the dishcloth was not a new one. Only 1 tea towel. One of the bed sheets was seriously stinky, obviously it had been left damp for some time - I had to remove it from the bed. The clothes dryer was full of damp bed clothes which I found after 4 days ( the next renters smelly bed clothes!). The house was ok clean but not sparkling clean which I would expect, the blinds were extremely dusty and the place in general could do with a lick of paint.

Renters should also know that we had lots of trouble with Mosquitos especially while round the pool.

These are all good constructive comments and should be taken as such.

Owner's Response: We were disappointed to see this last response and would like to point out that in 4 years of renting out our property, we had 16 reviews ( 12 x 5 star and 4 times 4 star ) so one not perfect review is not so terrible I guess. We are on the lower average for 2 bedroom / 2 bath with pool in Fort Lauderdale, and therefore are pretty much booked from back to back, so some mistakes in service could have happened. I addressed the issues with our cleaning service. This property has fly screens on all windows and back doors out to pool and unfortunately we don't have control over outdoor mosquitos in Florida. We don't spray mosquito control pesticides in our back yard since this needs to be done weekly and all chemicals end up in the pool. The issue with the "messy" back yard: We are very proud of our very tropical place, with over grown landscaping, palm fronds hanging over the pool and our wooden 6 ft privacy fence completely covered with plants. Our Pool water is clean and chemicals are tested regularly but there will be leaves in the pool after a rain, a trade off well worth it in exchange for a completely private and super tropical back yard. Another detail I would like to point out is that the pool finish is a diamond bright with beige specks instead of the usual blue specks which makes the water look more natural greenish than the regular LA pool fake blue, just something we thought works better with this style Florida house - we had tenants before confuse that with the water not being clean :-) We have a track record of being very responsive since we live only 5 minutes away and would have loved to hear about any issues during the stay and would have been happy to correct it immediately.

Private Oasis

Can't express how much I miss the place! The privacy of the backyard and the quality of the heated pool...the open floor plan with the killer shower head. Thinking about it again makes me wish we could be there another month! Homey, comfortable, had everything we needed and more. Thank you to the owner for taking time to introduce us to the use of everything at the house....he was awesome.

We drove an hour commute everday to an assignment, but would do it again if we had the opportunity and pleasure this house gave us.

Thanks!!

We LOVED our week long stay at this property. The whole process of payment/agreement/check-in/check-out went very smooth, no problems at all. The house is tastefully decorated with nice, simple stuff. We didn't ever feel like our almost 2 year old was going to hurt himself or break anything- what a relief! Loved the pool and were so thankful for the heater!! Great backyard in general, tons of privacy. Publix is very much so within walking distance which was great considering we cooked almost every meal at the house! Dishwasher in the house would've been a little more convenient if it had detergent to use with it-eh, we survived, but we hand washed a lot more dishes than we cared to. The tiny ants on the kitchen counter were a total turn-off, but we "managed" them with the bug spray in the cupboard. Let's just say we definitely kept all of our food in the refrigerator so that we didn't have to worry about ants ruining it :( House does seem to be in a lower end of town but we walked the streets a lot and never felt in danger or worried, so I thought it was just fine! Landscaping in the backyard could probably use some thinning out, seemed a little overgrown, but yet we did like the privacy. Wouldn't want to lose the privacy if the trees & bushes were trimmed. We appreciated the beach toys! Walk-in closet in back bedroom definitely needs a light, or maybe we just couldn't find it. Beds are SQUEAKY!!! I think you just need to cut the cardboard out of the boxspring to solve that problem :) I wouldn't say this property is a 5 star resort, but we aren't really high maintenance people, so we're good at making do with what we have :) we had a GREAT time and despite my suggestions for improvement, we would re-visit this property, no doubt.
