The villa has just been updated and newly furnished. In three bedrooms and with two big sofa beds it easily sleeps ten. The house offers about 2100 square feet of living space. The garden is approximately 10000 square feet and offers LOTS of space for entertaining! You won't find anything else with that much outdoor space in SE Florida! The property is fenced, but you have access to the private dock. However, children cannot open the gate to the dock. Among the palm trees and the tropical banyan tree there is plenty of natural shade and lots of sun as well. Enjoy lying on the chaise lounge and watch the ships sailing by in the canal. Or have fun with the new active 3D-TV! Or just relax in the screedend patio, watching the garden and pool or TV.
You can have your own jet ski or boat docked to the property's private dock for your personal use! Boating to the ocean is just a few minutes with no restrictions like fixed bridges. There is shore power and freshwater at the dock.
The beach is very close as well as all the shops, restaurants, cinema, tennis, golf and horseback riding. The villa is an ideal holiday destination all year round.
Grocery stores, bakery, all kind of shops like shoe shop or diving shop are just minutes away. You can walk even to Starbuck's!
Tennis, horseback riding, golf, scuba diving, snorkeling, beach, boat rentals, fishing and deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling, boat and jet ski rental, surf lessons, kite surfing, cinemas, outlets, Shopping (Wholefoods, Costco, Publix, Walmart and others), Everglades, Miami, excellent restaurants - all is around the corner!

This was our 3rd stay at Claude's home and it is exactly that, a home. This isn't just a house, but they have thought of everything to give you all the comforts of home.
Our family has severe allergies and Nicole and Claude go all of their ways to make sure that their staff has done a thorough job of cleaning and removing items with our allergens, so that we can start relaxing as soon as we walk through the door.
Their home is truly a tropical getaway. The huge backyard is an absolute plus for hanging out at any time of the day.
Since the villa is very well located, it is so close to some of the best beaches in Florida. It is also right around the corner from premium shopping, restaurants and grocery stores.
It is also so large that for the 4 adults and 2 kiddos, there was still plenty of space to relax and not feel crowded. We can't wait to go back next year!
Nicole and Claude, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making sure we have a great time. Your home is worth every single penny.

I am an IT engineer who relocated from NY to FL with my company.
At first, I only booked this property for a couple of days and intended to look for a permanent rental asap. Well, I quickly extended my stay after I had stayed here for a couple of days.
If it had been possible to enter a long-term lease for this property, I wouldn't have hesitated a second to do so, especially after I had seen 20+ long-term rental properties on the market.
This property has one big plus none of the other properties on the market has: a HUGE backyard and a LOT of space for entertaining. Since I have a family with smaller children, I also appreciated a lot to have the backyard fenced, especially towards the canal.
Enjoying the awesome and unobstructed water views on the canal while having a cool drink under the shade of a tree or in the marvellous pool is very relaxing, especially after a tough day at the office. My wife and children spent entire days at the property without leaving it. Actually, it's more like a private resort than just a house.
As an IT engineer, I also work a lot from home on the weekends and I liked the fast and stable internet connection. Even in the backyard, I was able to have video-conferencing sessions.
The villa itself was very clean at our arrival. It's well equipped and all appliances are new and in stainless steel design. It's also very well located, close to the beach, the shops, restaurants and the Golf Course.
I would highly recommend this property to any other guests, especially with children.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your property!
A big thank you for making our stay as easy and delightful!
We all had a truly amazing holiday. The house itself was very clean, well maintained and spacious for our party of six. The view from the dock is fantastic, it is a pleasure to see the wonderful boats passing by.
The kids had fun to try fishing. We enjoyed spending most of our days relaxing by the pool, hanging out in the huge backyard, doing barbecues and ending the evening with a cocktail in hand in the stunning lounge under the Banyan tree watching the sunset.
Had a wonderful stay at this villa. It's a perfect hideaway from the busy life and perfect for indulging yourself in a laidback vacation. Away from busy roads but close to shopping and restaurants it is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood.
There is more than enough room for our family of 6 and the pool was a hit with both adults and kids. The place offers plenty of opportunities for activity including boating, swimming, diving and snorkeling, outdoor fitness at Pompano Beach's promenade.
The villa was very clean and cosy, the kitchen was well equipped and the barbecue was a great bonus.
An excellent holiday was had by my entire family, we will definitely book again and would thoroughly recommend the villa to anyone else.

Warning! It has now been 7 weeks since we vacated the property and have not received our deposit back or had any response from the owner despite numerous emails. We left the property how we found it. Claude please contact us.
When booking the property all communication was swift. Questions dealt with very quickly (shame this is not the case since we left). We were very excited to stay at the property after reading all of the reviews.
When we arrived at the property we couldn't believe that these 5 star reviewers had stayed in the same property. It's worlds away from being 'immaculate' and is in desperate need of a good freshen up. The whole property smelled stale (we ended up buying our own air fresheners just to mask the smell), the furniture in the back porch was filthy, the floors were filthy, wardrobes broken, wires laying around outside (be careful if you have kids), stained sheets (which I was told is 'not policy' to replace - disgusting), signs EVERYWHERE telling you the rules, it's like being back at school. We had to clean the place ourselves and wash the bedding just to make it liveable. Pool was filthy, full of dirt, leaves and debris, had to wait 4 days for this to be cleaned.
We were trying to be positive, we're in sunny Florida! Went to have a shower and the pipes were blocked which caused both bathrooms to flood along with an even worse smell that covered up the musky smell from before. I emailed Claude and was told there is a plunger in the garage - this didn't work (he also implied we had blocked this ourselves which we certainly hadn't as there was a giant sign above the toilet reminding everyone not to flush anything but toilet paper!). Claude sent someone over to fix it who then spent most of the day removing sand from the pipes from previous guests and apologised (no apology from the owner though, he doesn't like negative feedback).
As per previous reviews, the wifi was poor, I had to constantly turn off the wifi on my phone as it kept disconnecting (and before they reply that I might have been far away from the property, I wasn't).
Only positive is the location, close to beach, shops and golf club which is good as you won't want to spend much time at the property.
The whole group of us were pretty miserable which is a shame as we had travelled from the UK for this holiday. It seems that the owners refuse to take any constructive feedback onboard. Hopefully they listen to this feedback rather than telling me I'm wrong.
Beautiful home, beautiful spot, great location, everything the pictures show and more. The villa is more like a private resort than a rental.
I have vacationed in many parts of the world but if you are looking for a relaxing warm weather spot in a magnificent home close to the beach this is it. Restaurants, shopping, beach, oceanwalk, playground, golf course, everything you need is nearby.
The management and staff are very friendly and responsive. The villa is updated, all furniture, bedsheets, appliances etc. are new and it was very clean at our arrival. The backyard is unique and the landscaping is very nice, especially the Banyan tree providing natural shade. And since the property is so large, my daughters had plenty of spots to enjoy their sunbathing sessions as well.
On a scale from one to 10 this is a 10.
We will provide you with a welcome booklet including a lot of must-sees and ideas for activities as well as a list of the very best restaurants in the area!
