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.

Perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Completely outstanding !!!!!

We first fell in love with this place through the pictures. When we finally arrived it was even better in person. This house is beautiful in and out.

The living room is very spacious along with the hallway area from the front of the house to the back. The kitchen is beautiful and comes with all sorts of pots, pans, and dishes.

The trees surrounding the front and back yard of the house make it look secluded and private.

The house was spotless clean when we got there. Of course the pool had leaves in it but we did not complain. It had been raining and there are tons of trees and plants in the back yard that will be blowing in the wind.

We arrived earlier than expected to the area so we decided to give the owner a call and he was more than happy to allow us to check in way earlier than the check in since the house being ready for us. They also let us know what we were able to check out later than the actual check out time due to the home by being booked for the day we were checking out. And any time we had any questions about the home or things to do they were quick to respond to us.

While checking in the owner advised us of tons of places and things to do in the area from coffee shops to clubs/bars. Anything you can think of, he named it!

We were very pleased with the owners. Very nice people that gave us great customer service!

The home is a perfect distance from everything we wanted to do for the weekend. Publix is literally a 2 minute drive with tons of restaurants, shops, etc only being less than 15 minutes away.

We checked it Shooters Waterfront for lunch and Kaluz Restaurant for dinner, which were both delicious and beautiful.

We also spent some time at the beach at Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and did some paddle boarding and kayaking with rentals from SeaGrape Surf Shop.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and everyone looking for something in this area.

Thank you again for everything!

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.
