About Shirley and Boris King

Over the years my husband and I have traveled much of the globe. Being big travelers and exposed to all sorts of accommodation we know how wonderful it is to discover a place that really feels like 'home'. We think we've created this in our Vacation Rentals - and I'm happy to say our guests agree!

We love Ft. Lauderdale - perfectly named the 'Venice of America' with all it's water channels and beautiful scenery. It's sunny, warm and tropical, and has a laid back Caribbean-like atmosphere. Since we're drawn to the ocean and anything marine related its the perfect place for us.

Some of our favorite things to do:

* Go for an early morning walk along the beach...then a dip in the ocean.

* 'Friday night concerts' in our neighborhood park - (during the summer months).

* Stroll along Las Olas - and indulge.... at the frozen yogurt shop!!

* 'People watch' while sipping a glass of wine outside of Mango's (Restaurant). Friday nights they have a live band and dancing.

* Buy ingredients at The Fresh Market (a block away) for a bar-b-que on the patio.

* Go boating with friends.

The things I couldn't live without would be family & friends, the ocean, traveling and good food!!

Our life has been one big adventure and it keeps getting better.

If you want to get to know us better - you can read about our travels. In our first book we describe our first sailing experience - crossing the Pacific Ocean to Australia with our 8 month old baby. It's called 'The Unsinkable Spirit - In Search of Love, Adventure and Riches!' Enjoy the read!

Why Shirley and Boris King chose Fort Lauderdale

We love the location!!! We totally enjoyed renovating the property to our standards. The neighborhood is fantastic - convenient, central - 2 miles to a beautiful beach - can walk downtown. Couldn't be better.

What a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at 2 of Shirley's properties and both of them were lovely! They were very clean and well maintained and nicely furnished. The private yards with the patios were great for drinking our coffee in the morning. Shirley was so nice to deal with. I would highly recommend her properties!

Zum Wohlfühlen

  • 4 of 5

Mein Mann und ich haben uns hier wohl gefühlt. Obwohl es ein 4er Komplex ist, hatten wir unsere Privatshäre! Besonders hübsch, die eigene kleine Terrasse mit Grillmöglichkeit unter Palmen :)

Im Haus war alles vorhanden, was nötig war. Küche gut ausgestattet. Eine etwas bessere Pfanne wäre gut :) - da wir schon oft abends gekocht haben. Aber das war nur eine Kleinigkeit.

Alle unsere Fragen wurden beantwortet und es gab immer Tipps für Unternehmungen.

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Lebensmittel) direkt vor der Tür.

Super gegessen haben wir im "Foxy Brown" - zufällig im Vorbeigehen entdeckt. Broward Blvd. - als wir vom Las Olas blvd. nachhause gelaufen sind. Geht gut zu fuß

Es war schön - vielen Dank!
