Why Joe Fernandes and Dennise Austin chose Greater Fort Lauderdale

Joe and Dennise always wanted to own a home on Las Olas. (It is their favorite area in Florida, and where they enjoy date nights, strolls on the boulevard, and their person favorite cofee and quiche from Gran Fourno.) They looked for over 5 years for the perfect home, and when this property got listed they had to see it. The minute they stepped foot into the Oasis, they were captivated by this historic Fort Lauderdale home. The home has so much character, extremely open floor plan making it a great getaway home and wonderful for socializing with family and friends. The open porch and family room, along with the hot tub, and hammock make for a perfect getaway.

What makes this house unique

The home is very open, the grounds are spectacular. A true gem. Location and a perfect home make this house a true getaway.

Everything is within walking distance, shops, great restaurants, beach, nightlife, and much much more.

We arrived at the Oasis after a 16 hour road trip from Washington DC and must I tell you.. it was perfect and completely worth the long , sometimes uncomfortable hours on the road. The house is a true work of art. Every inch has a story to tell. From the beautifully painted walls and closets to the old fashioned egg beaters. The house is absolutely amazing and the proximity to Las Olas Blvd and short drive to the beach makes it even more spectacular. It truly made the vacation what we wanted to be, relaxing and adventurous. I honestly would find myself admiring all of the artwork throughout the house and enjoying the reclining couches and projector to the max. This house is beyond what I expected it to be and had every thing we needed for our stay. Not to mention, Joe and Dennise were amazing and so accommodating to our every needs. They really made us feel at home and were so nice about everything, it definately gave us a warm feeling to be able to have them share their home with us. To anyone reading this review, I truly recommend staying at the Oasis. It will meet and exceed all of your expectations and the owners are absolutely great. I personally can't wait to be back for another relaxing and memorable vacation at this property.

My family had a super memorable vacation here! I can only provide absolutely positive comments. Joe and Denise are incredible hosts and the home has so much history and character. Far superior to the beach strip condominiums and only a 1/2 block walk to all the shops and restaurants on Las Olas. Thanks for an incredible memory!
