About Chris Finke

Hi, my name is Chris Finke with Resort Rentals International. We provide a nation-wide inventory of vacation rentals with local experience. I have been helping visitors book vacation rentals since 2008. I strive to provide guests with fast responses to inquiries along with accurate quotes. We offer clear and honest prices so you do not experience any surprises upon arrival or departure.

Chris Finke purchased this condo in 2010

Why Chris Finke chose Fort Lauderdale

You'll enjoy a prime location, a very clean condo, and excellent rates. We are confident that you will not find comparable accommodations for less money in Central Fort Lauderdale Beach. You can see the beach as soon as you walk out of the front door. There are about 10 restaurants within walking distance, plus a 24 hour convenience store.

What makes this condo unique

The renters here typically love the location, the condo's cleanliness, and the excellent hospitality. This property is dedicated to providing fantastic guest service. Shall anything arise during your stay at any time of day or night, you can rest assured that a staff member is on property and ready to assist you 24 hours a day; 7 days a week. In addition, there are no cleaning fees which is just one of the many ways to help you save money during your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was a nice location away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The beach was just outside the front door. Also, you could walk over the bridge and be at the Galleria Mall that had several good restaurants and shops. Our condo was a one bedroom and gave us plenty of room to spread out. It was very clean. My husband wasn't happy that there was only one ice machine on the main floor but we had a full size refrigerator/freezer that you could make your own ice. The pool had a nice bar that had $5 frozen drinks and $3 beers. Very nice condo in a very good location.

Excellent location, great staff, nice apartments

  • 4 of 5

Picture in the listing is exactly what it is. Very clean, very well maintained, friendly staff. We spent three weeks so got a good sense of the resort. Great location, a block from the beach. Close to Galleria Mall with restaurants and stores. Great value. We plan to return.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 1 week at Chris's beautiful condo. The location is perfect! We requested an ocean view on 7th floor or above and we were happy to have this granted. Our 12th floor condo overlooking the Atlantic was great. We enjoyed watching the cruise ships leaving at 5-6 pm several evenings. The beach was a short one-block walk. Our one-bedroom condo had everything we needed. The king bed was very comfortable, the upholstery had been recently recovered, the kitchen included all that is needed to prepare meals, the balcony was great to spend time on, and the unit was spacious with a walk-in closet. Wifi was excellent. We didn't use the pool area but it had an upper and lower deck and a bar. The workout room was more than adequate. The staff was helpful with any questions we had. We were left messages on the house phone with information on activities. We greatly appreciated this instead of phone calls. There are nearby restaurants (don't miss Franco & Vinny's Italian restaurant, open at 4 pm daily and only 1/2 block walk on Sunrise), the large Galleria Mall a 10-min walk, and a Publix across from that mall. There is a convenient mart across from the front door and a 7-Eleven near the rear entrance. This is not a 5-star resort but it includes all you need in a great location near the beach. We weren't disappointed!

Not great

  • 1 of 5

A group of 4 of us stayed here for a birthday weekend. First they tried to overcharge, this may have been an honest mistake but hard to say. Then they booked us in 2 different rooms without telling us they were doing that - so when we checked in, we were told we had 1 night in this room and then had to move to another room for the rest of our stay. The front desk stated this was a common practice through VRBO and that they never tell guests this. The first room had a pull out couch and murphy bed, which we needed both as we had 4 people but the room was not large enough to pull out the couch bed and pull down the murphy bed as they overlapped each other, so we had to move furniture around just to get the beds to lay flat on the floor. Many places to stay so avoid this one for the inconvenience.

Owner's Response: Hi Dawn, Thank you for providing your review. Regarding the quote, it is true that the initial quote was incorrect; it was an honest mistake. However, it was us who found the mistake and told you about it. If we were going to overcharge, we wouldn't have notified you about a mistake in the quote. We would never take advantage of a guest. Regarding the switch from one unit to another, this is not common practice and we tell our guest before they book if a unit change is anticipated. However, we were not given the opportunity to tell you about it because you placed your booking online at the last minute without asking any questions. In the confirmation, it said that there was a possibility that you would be required to switch units. If you had booked by phone, we would have told you about switching units and possibly avoided it entirely. I really apologize for the inconvenience. In the future, I will make sure to call a guest who books online if there is a possibility of switching units so that we do not run into any further issues. I hope you were able to enjoy your visit to Fort Lauderdale. PS: To explain the reasoning of moving to another unit number... this is a timeshare resort and the owners have either a week from Friday to Friday or Saturday to Saturday with a minimum rental of 2 nights. If any guest has a reservation that goes through a Friday or Saturday (such as Thursday to Sunday), there is a possibility of switching from one unit to another identical unit. I am truly sorry that you were unaware about this prior to making your booking. We recommend guests to call us so that we can provide guests with an opportunity ask additional questions about the rental and also be informed about any possibility of switching from one unit to another.

Overall, we had a great stay! The room was clean and the view was amazing! The location is AWESOME as we were only steps away from the beach. The condo accommodations were all very nice and the support staff was extremely helpful. Six people comfortably slept in this 1 bedroom condo and we would absolutely stay here again! It's not upscale but it's perfect for a family who would like to easy access to stores, restaurants and the beach. Thanks so much!
