The Riverside Bungalow has been completely renovated during the fall of 2011. Brand new hard wood floors throughout, new air conditioning, new appliances, stainless steel refirigerator and stove. Kitchen complete with all the cookery and cutlery required.

New premium hot tub that sits up to 7 installed during December 2012 in the backyard in the middle of towering palms and tropical garden. Landscaped pathways from deck to hot tub along with lights at night.

Hypo allergenic environment. No carpets, No mildew, no dust mites.

Renovation added 5 windows to the home and an extension of the kitchen creating breezeways throughout the house and bright natural light. Sparsely furnished creates a spacious bright ambiance. Brand new King Bed and mattress. The home is kept spotlessly clean and looks like a catalog home!

Guests will love the newly added premium hot tub that sits up to 7 guests and is placed in the tropical garden with pathways and evening landscape lighting. Large deck in front and back. Back deck is off the kitchen and adds an outdoor space to the kitchen, great for winter months.

About Jeffrey Dietrich

We are professional boutique resort owners with properties in Thailand, Panama and South Florida. We spend our year divided in these three locations. If anyone is curious about the resorts we own you can check out the following listings on VRBO; 305227,197870, 368985.

We are nature lovers and spend most of our year in remote locations care taking our properties while bird watching, hiking etc.

I am an amateur naturalist by training and an avid gardner. My wife Alma is a great cook and gardner as well and has a magic touch growing orchids. She is originally from the Philippines.

We like to landscape with fruit trees and native flora that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. The fruit trees planted at Riverside Bungalow include Lychee, Mango, guava, Longan and Jaboticaba. Unfortunately guests wont be able to enjoy the fruits for a couple more years until they start to bear fruit.

If we are in the neighborhood when guests visit we are always happy to stop by and answer questions, especially regarding names of trees, birds etc you might observe during your stay.

We have full or part time in South Florida since 1991.

Jeffrey Dietrich purchased this house in 2011

Why Jeffrey Dietrich chose Fort Lauderdale

Just minutes from Fort Lauderdale airport, Riverside is a historical neighborhood in old Fort Lauderdale with mature landscaping and older homes. It has the charms of yesterday and walks through the neighborhood under the canopy of old live oaks and Royal Palms is what drew us to the area. Across the street from the RIverside Bunglow are properties that border the New River, a great attraction in Fort Lauderdale. Guests can walk the Riverside Walk which meanders along the New River through down town Fort Lauderdale.

The small bungalow was restored in 2011 and we have designed the kitchen and bedrooms with ample breezeways and many windows. Sparsely furnished

What makes this house unique

Just a 5 minute drive to Fort Lauderdale Beach and a 10 minute walk to down town make this an ideal location. Walking in the neighborhood is delightful because of the mature landscaping and older homes. This neighborhood is an oasis in South Florida where most of the development is new. If you are looking for a charming older neighborhood with character you wont be dissapointed.

Flocks or wild feral parrots can be seen and heard daily from the home. Our neighbors figured out how to attract these birds by hanging feeder high up in the canopy and they have established a feeding area for up to 5 species of parakeets and parrots.

Giant Royal palms and a huge fig tree frame the back yard of the home. The back deck extends from the kitchen into this landscape and is a great spot to hang in the late afternoon.

Charming bungalow with tropical landscaping located 10 minutes from where the action is.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our time at this charming bungalow. It was neat and clean and well stocked with all items needed to cook-in. The landscaping, plants and flowers were as we envisioned them. Didn’t use the hot tub, but would have if the weather was cooler.

The location was perfect, ten minutes to Las Olas Blvd and the river taxi by car.

Wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for stay in Florida. Was on a quiet street that was easy to get to and close to many restaurants and beaches. House was immaculate and very comfortable. Beds were great and showers were warm! We enjoyed the back deck with all the wonderful greenery as well as the HUGE hot tub! Jimmy, the grounds keeper was very easy to get in touch with and was super helpful. Would absolutely book this place again.

Riverside Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this home rather than a hotel while in Fort Lauderdale for a wedding. We chose the location based on proximity to the wedding venue and were very pleased to have a comfortable place to visit with the groom and best man after the rehearsal. They were really pleased to join us in the hot tub for a refreshment from the wide variety available at the beer cartel a short walk away. We loved the vegetation in the backyard where mangos , pineapples and coconuts were growing and beautiful flowers were blooming. Bedrooms were comfortable, Publix and the beach were pretty easy to licate and the property manager was helpful. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Walking distance from downtown Fort Lauderdale. Access to Riverwalk in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale Beach 8 minutes by car. Home located in Riverside, a historical neighborhood with older homes and mature landscaping throughout. Great for walking, jogging. In the winter the property and the neighborhood is great for bird watching with many winter migrants present. If interested the owner can provide a list of species. Many species of exotic parrots breed in the area and we have 4 species that come to our feeders.
