About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Pool Home With Chefs Kitchen In Cute, Walkable Beach Town

Hibiscus House is an open, airy oasis that sleeps 6 in luxurious comfort. The three bedrooms are spacious and private; two have en-suite baths. The brand new chef's kitchen opens onto the dining area that seats 6. The comfortable living area flows onto the poolside patio for true indoor-outdoor living. The pool area is secluded and quiet, with comfy sofas and chairs for curling up and watching the kids play in the heated pool.

The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a short walk to the beach. Park your car at the house and your entire vacation is walkable! Grab your beach towels and umbrella (and the boogie board, theyre all provided) and stroll to the beach entrance right at the end of Hibiscus Avenue.

Hibiscus House is located in lovely Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, South Floridas only walkable beach town, located on an island between the Intercoastal Waterway and the ocean. Large towers are prohibited here, so all buildings are lower than the coconut palms! The charming downtown has loads of shops, casual and classy restaurants, ice cream - even a fun pier extending out over the Atlantic for fishing or just a sunset stroll. Hibiscus House has an amazing chef's kitchen, but you may just want to dine out at a different restaurant every night of the week! Best of all, this little town is just a quick drive from the fun offerings of Ft Lauderdale, Miami, and West Palm Beach.

The free Pelican Hopper shuttle travels the length of this island town and connects to the county bus network. There is parking for 5 cars outdoors on the property (the garage is for owner use only). Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is very walkable - the beach is just over 5 minutes walk and downtown is around 10 minutes. The B-Cycle bike share has a station in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and allows you to grab a bike and drop it at any of the 20 stations along the beach all the way to downtown Ft Lauderdale.

Guests have full access to the house and grounds. Parking in the garage is for the owner but guests may use the laundry facilities and pool/beach equipment stored in the garage.

Guests will receive directions to the house and house information and rules upon booking. Guests receive a code for the front door, so no one will be present during your stay. The property manager is available by phone or email during normal business hours.

NOTE: You will receive a rental agreement via email upon booking. Receipt of your signed rental agreements is required before your booking is considered confirmed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wir waren mit 6 Personen 2 Wochen im Hibiscus Haus. Das Haus war super sauber und alles war sehr neu und gepflegt. Die Betten war sehr bequem und es gab sogar alles für den Strand wie Sonnenschirme oder Klappstühle mit einem Strandwagen zum mitnehmen. Der Strand ist nur 5 Minuten und der Pier mit Restaurants und Bars nur etwa 10 Minuten Fußweg entfernt. Lauderdale by the sea ist ein schöner Badeort, perfekt zum entspannen. Erik hat sich um jede Kleinigkeit sofort gekümmert obwohl es eigentlich nichts zu kümmern gab. Das Haus war einfach perfekt. Ich war schon in vielen Airbnb Häusern in Florida und diese Perle gehört auf jeden Fall zu den besten Häusern in denen ich jemals war. Wenn Ihr also nach einem Haus in Strandnähe, ruhiger und sicherer Nachbarschaft, tollen Restaurants und Bars sucht, dann seid Ihr hier richtig. Ich kann das Haus ohne Einschränkungen empfehlen, wirklich 1 A mit Sternchen! TOP! TOP! TOP!



We were 6 people 2 weeks in Hibiscus House. The house was super clean and everything was very new and clean. The beds were very comfortable and there was even anything for the beach and umbrellas or folding chairs with a beach cart to take away. The beach is only 5 minutes away and the pier with restaurants and bars just a 10 minute walk. Lauderdale by the Sea is a beautiful seaside resort, perfect for relaxing. Erik has immediately taken care of every little thing even though there was really nothing to worry about. The house was just perfect. I have been to many Airbnb homes in Florida and this pearl is definitely one of the best hotels that I ever was. So if your looking for a home near the beach, quiet and safe neighborhood, great restaurants and bars, then you are in the right place. I can recommend the house without restrictions, really 1A with asterisks! TOP! TOP! TOP!

Comfortable and central, ideal holiday home for family's

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two and a half week stay at Erik's house. It is extremely comfortable and has all the utensils + much more that you need for day to day living. My kids loved the pool and it was the perfect depth for my 6 year old twins who gained a lot of confidence in the water in the time we stayed here.. there is also plenty of pool toys at the house to keep them entertained.. the property is really close to the beach and downtown Lauderdale by the sea.I would defiantly recommend Eriks house to any family looking for a central place to stay in Lauderdale by the sea..

A fast but enjoyable two weeks!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time! Enjoyed staying here but have a couple suggestions. Perhaps another tv and a keurig coffee pot. It's nice to come back from the beach to take a swim! I would recommend this house to anyone!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible.Clean and spacious.Comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen.The small pool was a perfect size for my grandchildren.Our 5 year old felt so comfortable being able to touch in the pool that he learned to swim without water wings in one morning session.The walk to the beach was really about 10 minutes.We were so grateful for the cart that was provided with beach chairs,mats, towels and sand toys for the kids.A great neighbourhood.Safe.About 15/20 minute walk to restaurants.The Vietnamese take out was delicious.Walked to Publix for groceries.It took about 30 minutes both ways.The beach was lovely and not at all crowded.We also walked to the water taxi pick up about 30 minutes away on foot We would come back to Hibiscus house.And have recommended it to friends.

Well equipped home in fantastic location!

Our family enjoyed a lovely stay at Hibiscus House! We have 3 young boys, ages 7, 4, and 3, and this house was a fantastic choice for us! The pool was lovely and the layout of the house worked perfectly. Erik was a pleasure to deal with and we would certainly stay here again!

Great Vacation at Hibiscus House

  • 5 of 5

I just had a great stay at Hibiscus House. Great location, easy walk to the beach and convenient to everything. The house was immaculate, well decorated, and nicely renovated. I especially liked having the equivalent of two master suites and the kitchen was a nice design allowing 3 people to work in it without getting in each other's way. The patio and pool were nice places to enjoy the outside and it was great to have the option of having the pool heated. The house is located on a corner lot in a quiet residential neighborhood, which added greatly to the relaxation factor. Having the beach chairs, towels and umbrella to use as well as a cart to carry them and other beach supplies was really helpful. I would go back in a second, just love this location.
