I loved our stay here. The room was very clean and Tom left complimentary snacks and drinks for us, which was much appreciated. There was also a binder full of menus for recommended restaurants. I loved that there was a grocery store, CVS, and "Waves" beach store within walking distance. Also loved the Tiki Bar, beautiful beach, and heated pool. I would definitely stay here again .I give them a 5 star

About Tom and Debbie

I am a retired international airline pilot and have stayed in thousands of hotels and I have learned what is most important to my guests. Cleanliness, personal service, location, accuracy of listing, and of course price.

I have lived in the area for over 30 years and only 10 minutes from the hotel. Therefore I am very familiar with the area to help my guests. Most of the time when I am available, I love to pick my guests up at the Ft Lauderdale airport when arriving there. I get to know them and they me and show them the local area.

Tom and Debbie purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Tom and Debbie chose Fort Lauderdale

Nice little spot

  • 5 of 5

Nice spot, has great tiki bar and now a fantastic Italian restaurant/bar. We spent time at both. Beach is right in your backyard. Tom provided us with freebies. Well stocked with amenities.

It is a very great location, clean and a good serving owner.

  • 5 of 5

The beach is the best, the location is very convenient to good night spots and restaurants.

The owner has a list of locations with a map of places to visit , eat and be entertained. The bar on site is a beachside tiki bar . It is the only one on the beach for miles. The restaurant on site is very good with some very good entertainment . Electronics in the room are good. Stores are nearby for all your needs. I would return to this location. The owner is very helpful and friendly and is always available electronically to hear of any concerns and he encourages this. Brian

Smoking of cigarettes and especially cigars bothered us and physically affected my wife

  • 2 of 5

Floors were dirty and room smelled like smoke from cigars. Many public areas encouraged smoking and smelled bad

Owner's Response: Ernie, Sorry about your problem. The room is totally sanitized between each guest. Floors are cleaned with Pine Sol. All The bedding washed in my home laundry. (We do not smoke, and we are very sensitive to smoke and have never smelled that anyone has smoked in the room) The hotel has very strict smoking rules. Smoking is allowed on the balconys and of course at the beach. In 3 years of renting there has never been a complaint about smoke. I take this personally and sorry that you had a problem and I will continue to do the best I can for all my guests as I thought I have for you. I would have loved to hear all the good aspects of your stay. Tom and Debbie

Great spot on the beach

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay on the beach and not break your bank then this is the place for you. The room is just as described and the balcony was a plus! Weather wasn't great for us but the ocean and pool are literally steps away. There is plenty to do in the area though in walking distance or a very short cab ride. We did eat at the tiki bar or they will also deliver food to the room if you feel like staying in. Food is tasty and reasonable. We also took advantage of the coffee shop in the mornings. Tom is a great host. He let us check in early and met up with us to go over the room and some hot spots in the area to check out. He left snacks, water, beer and wine for us. Also in the room were menus and maps to help us with the stay. Would love to book with Tom again in the future.

tom was an amazing an host and the property was fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first our first vrbo experience and it couldn't have been any better. Tom was an amazing host. He did everything possible to make our visit nice and relaxing. The room was nice and clean and we enjoyed some of the extras Tom left in the room. The property was exactly what we were looking for on our trip. It was a great place to relax and enjoy the pool, tiki bar and beach all within about 20 feet of each other. Everyone at the property was very nice and pleasant. We will defiantly be back!!
