Public feedback KRISTA'S STAY 07/17-23/17 5 STAR

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

WOW!!! Such a fun Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Went down to Ft. Lauderdale with a great friend of mine for the Broncos vs. Miami game. Much needed Mom's trip = no kids!! Came across Tom and Debbie's condo in our search. Love the description and pictures that are provided. Reached out to them with some questions and Tom answered right away and was so kind. We booked immediately!

The condo DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!! Tom and Debbie have everything you may need and the layout was great. We appreciated the extra touches (complimentary wine, beer, water, comfy beds, etc). The location of the condo is fantastic. No car with us, so we Ubered it everywhere. Very convenient! Plus there is a fun Tiki Bar and an excellent Italian Restaurant right on site.

I had a few questions for Tom during our stay and he responded immediately and was very happy to help. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay, I HIGHLY recommend Tom and Debbie's place. Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality. We will be back!

Great visit

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed 2 nights. The room is comfortable, clean and lovingly stocked with complimentary wine, beer, soda, water, snacks and more. The property is directly on the beach and walking distance to many places. The owners recommended the NY Deli for breakfast and was great. The Property has an outdoor tiki bar & grill. Convenient, pretty and lunch was very good. Also has a very nice Italian Restaurant with authentic Italian food and lovely bar atmosphere. Overall, great stay. Thank you Tom & Debbie for sharing your property with us. Sincerely, Steph Wallace

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

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
