Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Beachfront Property

Welcome to Center Beach and thank you for visiting us! Our stunning 4 bedroom and 4 bath (2 master suites) beach house is 140 yards from tropical Fort Lauderdale Beach. When not at the beach enjoy our newly designed waterfall pool and 8 person spa. We named our home Center Beach because it is located on Center Avenue, steps to beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach. Fort Lauderdale is near and dear to our hearts as we lived there for many years and have many family and friends there. After moving to Nashville and missing Fort Lauderdale Beach, Center Beach is now our vacation home. We invite you to make Center Beach your home away from home....we know you will enjoy it!

We have had the good fortune of staying in many five star hotels and resorts such as the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons and Little Palm Island in the Florida Keys. These places have had a strong influence on how we designed Center Beach from the bed linens and mattresses to the kitchen to the outdoor pool and spa. Center Beach can sleep 10 comfortably in the 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

We invite you to relax outside on the beautiful and tropical patio. The patio is covered with high hat lighting. There is a 55 inch LCD TV in the patio to enjoy the game. The pool has a barrier fence to protect the little ones and can be removed upon request. The large 8 person hot tub has two 30 inch spill over waterfalls into the pool. If you are in the mood for grilling out, there is a Weber Natural Gas Grill. The patio is excellent for entertaining, as there is ample patio furniture.

Escape after a long sun filled day to the upstairs Master Suite. The king size bed with the mattress and linens of the highest-quality.... comparable to 5 star hotels. The room is equipped with a 42 inch Plasma TV with a smart remote. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone/iPad. Walk-in closet is spacious and organized with hangars, shelves and two luggage racks. The bathroom has a dual vanity, walk in shower and free standing soaking tub.

Second Master Suite is tucked away downstairs. This very spacious bedroom has a king size bed with a high-quality mattress and linens. It is equipped with a 42 inch Plasma TV. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone. The very large walk-in closet is organized with hangars, shelves and a luggage rack. There is a nice private bathroom with a combination shower and tub.

The upstairs Guest Bedroom has two very comfortable queen size beds with high-quality mattresses and linens. This large bedroom has a 30 inch Plasma TV. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone. Closet is organized with hangars, shelves and a luggage rack. The private full bathroom has a shower.

The downstairs Guest/Office bedroom has a daybed with trundle with two single high-quality mattresses and linens. This room has a desk and a Plasma TV. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone. The full bathroom has a shower.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances. There are four counter stools. For the chef, there are full sets of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, silverware, etc.

The downstairs living room has a 55 inch Plasma TV with a sound bar. There is a leather sofa and cocktail tables.

Stunning Beach house is one of the best place in Fort Lauderdale.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Fort Lauderdale was perfect. The owner (Mister Toby Gray) was easy to reach and Ron Rusian, his manager, was very helpful and always available. We were a party of six persons

including two teenagers and we had a great time at this luxurious property steps to the Ocean. The pool and the terrace were our place of reunion after a day of shopping in the great Fort Lauderdale's district while our family was at the beach. Modern furniture and linens of great quality were very appreciated. We will be back for sure at this location. Thanks again to Mrs and Mister Gray for that wonderful week…

Great house and amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and the furnishings were very well done. The bedrooms were super-sized and there were nice updated bathrooms. The kitchen and fridge were more than sufficient. Going to the beach was just steps away and it was very private. The caretaker went out of his way to be of great help whenever we had a question or problem. Our girls' reunion was perfect!

Great home and great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a small group in for the weekend. The house is beautifully decorated and very modern. This house is also very clean. The outside has a nice pool/hot tub combo and nice outdoor living area undercover. The living area is large and comfortable for a large group.

It is a very short walk to the beach and very close to shopping, coffee and grocery store. The only drawback is the backyard butts up to s very busy street so you do get background noise in the pool area. Over all, not a big deal.

Toby was an excellent communicator and even allowed for a later check out because of our flight. Ron, the property manager, was very friendly and always Checking on us to see if we needed anything.

Great house!!

Owner's Response: Angela Thank you for taking time to write a note. We have an 8 foot cement wall that really cuts down on the noise from the street. The house is a very short walk to the beach. The neighborhood does not have any thru traffic. It is an excellent neighborhood to walk and ride a bike. All the best, Toby and Hollie

Above and beyond all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My sister's best friend and I planned a girl's weekend to celebrate my sister getting married in a couple weeks. I have had success before with VRBO rentals, so I figured I'd go that route again. Needless to say--another success in my opinion! There were 9 of us staying in the house-- the house had plenty of space, comfort, high end finishes and was more than we could have ever imagined! The beach access is a one block walk up the street, right out the front door. The house was clean and put together beautifully. Every detail was so thought out and the amenities that come with the house truly do make you feel like you're in a 5 star hotel! The management is beyond accommodating and friendly. the caretaking of everything (house, pool, yard, and grounds) is done to perfection!!! Our group decided that we are making this trip an annual thing and without a doubt want to stay in one of the Gray family's properties!

Thank you to Toby, your family, and Ron for being a part of making my sisters wedding celebrations unforgettable in the BEST way possible!

Fantastic Weekend Away!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful three night stay at this wonderful beach house literally steps away from a beautiful beach, minutes from restaurants and sightseeing tours. The house was spotless, tastefully decorated, we had everything we needed to cook and eat in including a grill by the pool and hot tub. Bedrooms were roomy and had their own bathrooms; every room including the pool had a TV. Dining room with room for eight at the table.

Ron the property manager was excellent and responded immediately when we had a little issue with heating the hot tub the first night. Toby was terrific about responding when it looked like we might have to postpone our trip due to hurricane Matthew. You would never know a storm had just passed through town when we arrived-the yard and gardens were in excellent condition. We can't wait to come back!

Nicely appointed kitchen, outside seating area, pool, hot tub, and dual living/seating areas. Quick Uber ride to all the local attractions and only $15 from the airport.
