Great house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the house and it's location. Andy was nice enough to allow us an early check-in, which was very much appreciated. The house was clean and there was plenty of room to hang out inside and out. The pool and the nature preserve behind the house were definitely the highlights. Very secluded. We had a ton of wildlife (turtles, lizards, birds, iguanas, etc.) come visit us each day, but no problem with mosquitoes (just some annoying gnats around dusk, but they quickly went away). We couldn't figure out the ice maker or the speakers by the bar, but it wasn't a big deal. Communication was great. We called the property manager because the pool wasn't heating properly and someone was sent over promptly to fix it. The beach is only a block away and restaurants, bars, stores, etc. are all very close. Overall, a great stay. Would definitely return! Thank you!

Great House, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My tennis team (group of 10 ladies) recently stayed here while in town for a championship tournament nearby. The house was the perfect size for us, and we loved the space the house afforded us. The house is just a short walk to the beach, and out the back door was Birch State Park. We could not have asked for a better location - so close to Las Olas Blvd., and tons of dining options. The owners were also very responsive and easy to work with!

Exceptional and unique

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Ft Lauderdale for 30 years in the spring for a family reunion. This was our favorite house close to Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. The pool area is large and comfortable, but the most compelling aspect was the daily visits by great while egrets, immature ibis and a host of other birds, as well as large water turtles. The back yard is separated from the park by a waterway - it's entirely secluded and private, with an occasional kayak passing by. the mosquito mister worked perfectly - no bites. Walk out the front door and you're a few houses from the beach, which has been beautifully restored since the hurricane several years ago. The kitchen, living and dining spaces are great, as well as the guest house which allows for more privacy for large parties. Everyone from the twenty-somethings to the 101 year old grandmother loved it. Highly recommended. My only suggestion for improvement is to switch to 100% cotton sheets.

Best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this place! Can't believe we came upon this hidden treasure. This house is close to EVERYTHING and yet is so secluded and private. We walked to the beach (literally down the street), biked to the restaurants and could take an Uber to Las Olas (downtown) for less than $7. We were a huge group ranging from 2 yrs old to 80 yrs and this house was perfect for everybody. We enjoyed the beach and the shops and the restaurants, or just stayed behind and enjoyed the pool and the views to the famous Birch State Park in the backyard. The house itself was clean and comfortable and had a lot of character to it (especially the backyard!) David and his team were super accommodating with our requests.
