Enjoyed a wonderful stay with 15 friends. House was perfect. Spacious and very luxurious with beds for all and many bathrooms. Extremely well stocked. Had Chef prepare dinner. House had lots of plate and glass ware, including wine, for all. Outstanding time! One block from beach, easy walk to park and short distance to restaurants. Home owner was very responsive in communicating and with needs. Highly recommend!

Beautiful mansion

  • 5 of 5

My family of 15 stayed in this beautiful home for Thanksgiving week. This home exceeded all our expectations. The kitchen was huge with 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, and 2 sinks. Very easy for prepping and cooking a feast for our large family. The pool table was a hit for my grandsons. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach and relaxing by the pool. Grandkids loved the outdoor shower! We would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Ft Lauderdale.

fantastic home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is spacious and beautiful. Has everything you need and many extras. Everything is so well thought out and easy to find. Most importantly might be the construction of the home. Solid walls and doors make it great for a large group. Pool and patio are wonderful. Oh yeah, and it is 100 yds from the beach. Super easy beach access. The renters are also great to work with. Cannot wait to rent this home again.

We rented this home to house guests for my brother's wedding and it was the best decision we made! The property is steps from the beach and there are 4 bikes and 4 chairs in the garage for guests to use, My guests had a blast on the bike ride Additionally, there were toys for the pool for small children and a pool table for the older ones. The 7.5 bathrooms were perfect for everyone to get ready. There are two irons in the laundry room, and blow driers in some of the bathrooms, so my guests from the UK and India who left their converters at home were able to get ready in a timely manner for events. The owner was kind enough to let us check in earlier and leave later, which was really kind of them. The family room was a great place for everyone to gather and chat/ dance. One of the rooms slept 8 people, which worked out perfectly for a large family we were going to put in a hotel. My only warning for those who are staying during the rainy season is to bring mosquito repellent candles/ sprays, as once the mosquitos in and start to bite, the young children are harder to manage. Everything about this home was great and if we ever have another wedding in the family down here, I would not hesitate to book this home again. It looks absolutely regal from the outside and the inside did not disappoint. It is the perfect home for large family gathering.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that the house worked out so well for your large family. We welcome you back anytime! Thanks for the great advice regarding mosquitoes. Fort Lauderdale is a tropical climate and we often see rain during the summer.

Excellent property. Private pool and hot tub, yet within walking distance to the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property for families! Lots of individual space and lots of gathering spaces for conversation! Nice neighborhood, very quiet and inviting! The backyard was excellent for family barbeque and swimming for everyone. The view of the ocean from the roof top balcony was outstanding. And of course there was always fresh ice from the ice maker in the bar area! Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect Luxurious Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults/7 kids stayed 10 nights and really enjoyed the house! House/pool area was well maintained and all the bedrooms were perfect... kids bedroom was awesome as it had a bunk bed, 3 twins and big wide screen tv. The size of the house gives everyone the privacy if they want it and the dining areas inside and outside are great for big gatherings. Perfect location to the beach across the street as the house is set back on the street so you don't hear A1A traffic noise. We have stayed in many vacation homes in the area and this rates #1. Owner Bret was great to work with and property manager Wayne was terrific.
