About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms Safe Haven Heated Pool Home

Our 'Key West' style residence is only a short 15 minute bike ride (or 5 minute car ride) to some of the best beaches in the world. We live on a quiet street with friendly neighbours providing a relaxing environment to call your ‘Home” away from home. Our 3 bedroom/3 bath house has approx. 2000 sq ft (200 sm) of living space and is tucked into a tropical paradise featuring a secluded back yard with exterior living space, a refreshing swimming pool, calming waterfalls, shaded seating areas, outdoor dining space and lushly landscaped gardens.


Beach/Boat/Cruise: There is so much to do in Fort Lauderdale....beaches. We have 4 nice bikes to cruise up and down Jimmy Buffet’s A1A and enjoy the stylish hotels, tasty restaurants/cafes and beaches. Simply relax and sunbathe under the swaying coconut palms or stroll along the seashore looking for shells. Oh, …and did we mention the beaches?

Boating: Known as the ‘Venice of America”, Fort Lauderdale has more waterways than any other city the world over. Take a deep-sea fishing tour, a day trip sailing to Nassau or simply boat up and down the hundreds of canals in one of our local water-taxi’s.

Big Boating: South Florida just happens to be the world’s largest cruise ship port giving you access to the all the islands of the Caribbean, ports of call in Central and South America and beyond.


Orlando: launching point for day trips to Disney, Key West and South Beach. Leave early, have a blast in these tourist destinations and still make it back for night swims in the lit pool. The world’s most popular tourist destination is but a 3 hour drive north. Home to Disney World, Universal, SeaWorld, numerous waterparks and other attractions.

Key West: 2 hour drive south to the Florida Keys. Dive in Key Largo, fish in Marathon, and enjoy Margaretville and “Land’s End” of Key West.

Miami: We are very close to the unequalled night-life of South Beach. Experience all the glitz and glamour of the ART-Deco District, the fashion of Lincoln Road Mall and the unique quirkiness of Cocoanut Grove.

For the Nature-Lover:

Everglades National Park: One hour west of our home puts you in the middle of the the largest ‘River of Grass’, the Everglades of South Florida . Explore native Seminole and Miccosukee reservations which recreate the historical way of life. Various campgrounds within offer trailer & tent camping with kayaking or paddle boarding in which to experience the native wildlife up close …..even the alligators!!!

For the Adventurer:

Our marinas and ports provide charters for fishing, boating, diving and snorkelling. Numerous water sports rentals such as jet-skiing, wakeboarding, para-sailing, etc. can be found at several locations within a few minutes’ drive.

About Larry & Katherine

Hi Future Guest,

While our family has had the opportunity to travel and live abroad, South Florida has been our home for the past 20+ years. Having escaped the cold winters of the Northern US some time ago , Larry and I have been blessed to enjoy the beautiful weather here year round. We would be so pleased to extend our hospitality and share our home with you.

Larry & Katherine purchased this house in 2004

Why Larry & Katherine chose Oakland Park

We think Fort Lauderdale is the perfect location to experience all the wonderful things that Florida has to offer. Should availability not suit your needs, please see our other locations for consideration: VRBO # 794238 and VRBO # 767019

Wonderful stay and incredible hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for almost a month as we relocated to south Florida. Absolutely my best experience with VRBO. The house was military clean, the cubbords appropriately stocked, and the furnishings like you'd have at home - not in a rental! Many nice touches like bicycles, pool toys, games, and a wii.

The owners are incredibly responsive and caring. Always quick to answer a text or call whenever we had a question.

Quiet and pea full, but just a few minutes from one of the best beaches in the United States.

Come. You won't be dissapointed.

Well equipped property, great owners, central location

  • 5 of 5

there were several things about this property which stood out and we have done VRBO or similar many times in the past. The communication before and during this day definitely stood out, I would say with most vacation rentals there is very little interaction with the owner. The owner was readily available by text message for any questions or concerns and was extremely responsive. Leaving the treats for our arrival, the coffee, the wine, etc. stands out as a big positive. The kitchen is also very well-stocked in terms of spices, pans, etc. we actually like to cook on vacation so that was a big plus for us to be able to have what we need. The outdoor multiple seating areas and the lighting out there is fantastic and the heated pool with the lights also a big plus. In the morning we would have breakfast and the kids would jump right in the pool and that was great. Very convenient location to so many things including the airport, beach, restaurants, grocery store.

Beautifuly appointed, relaxing retreat-like setting for a vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to be greeted by our kind and accommodating hostess, Katherine, when we arrived at her home. She provided goodies and coffee and other amenities to make us feel welcome. If we had any questions, she was quick to respond. The house was lovely, and even exceded our expectations! Private, quiet, refreshing...that is how we found this vacation home, which was just what we needed. The property was clean and well-maintained, with wonderful "extras" which were made available to us. Thank you so much, Katherine and Larry, for a wonderful two week "getaway" for our family during this challenging time in our life. We would not hesitate to recommend this location or the host and hostess to ANYONE traveling in the south Florida area!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best experience at a VRBO yet. Katherine was absolutely wonderful and attentive. We were quite late due to flight delays on New Years Eve and to our surprise were lovely homemade snacks and snacks. We stayed here with our adult children after Christmas for a week. The home was immaculate, fully stocked and perfect for a family. There is lots of room and the pool was absolutely perfect. We spent much of our time outside with beautiful lights and foliage. We cannot say enough about our visit. Checking out was also great - Katherine accommodated our schedule perfectly. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and we would definitely stay there again should we get the chance. Thanks Katherine for making our family holiday so perfect!

We took your advice and purchased outdoor plates, bowls, and drink ware for our future guests (as well as placemats). Best wishes in 2016.
