Another great stay at Seaward

  • 5 of 5

I'm a returning guest at Seaward, so obviously I love the place. Like last time, I met the owner who was super helpful when we started having a bit of trouble with the door lock, which was promptly taken care of. Talking about the lock, this was an upgrade from last time: we didn't need any key, so the kids could come and go as the saw fit without the need for a key (who wants to take a key to the beach?) Other than that, the location is still wonderful, all the rest was as good as usual. People like Ryan come by about once a day, making sure everything around the pool is clean and everybody's happy, being helpful with every question we have. I called the office a couple of times, the calls are being answered promptly, and everyone is being nice and helpful. So all in all, everything was as good as I hoped, or in fact better than the previous visits. The only mistake I made during this trip, and it has nothing to do with the rental itself, was entrusting the US Postal Service with an urgent package (after seven days, the "guaranteed two day delivery" still hadn't showed up). Anyway, time permitting, I'll be back as soon as possible to stay at Seaward again.

Beautiful equipped Condo and a view like no other!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived early to our downstairs condo...staff was very warm and accommodating.We originally wanted the upstairs for the beautiful view,(we didn't book it early enough totally our fault,) make a long story short,we met the owners of the condo(extremely nice!!!),and they let us know that their sister who originally booked the upper condo(Seaward B) suite was not able to come.They were so gracious to upgrade us,and bent over backwards to make our stay so enjoyable.We will be back for sure,and this Georgetown,KY. couple will never forget their graciousness!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property and location. Directly oceanfront in Lauderdale by the sea with top of the line appliances and furnishings. We could not have been happier with the property, location, and by the sea vacation rentals. Jason, from by the sea even came over to assist us during our stay. We have just booked with by the sea again. You will not be disappointed!

Fantastic Location with children

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa C this winter. The villa was spotless and perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children). The location was absolutely ideal as we could walk easily to the pool from our first floor location, to the beach and to town. It was also fun to have the option of walking to town via the beach or using the tidy sidewalks roadside. I wasn't overwhelmingly enamored with downtown Fort Lauderdale by the sea, but it served our needs with basic restaurants, great ice cream at Kilwin's and shops with all the cheesy beach gear one could ever NOT want! We were graced one afternoon by a sizable iguana sauntering along the pool deck out to the beach and under the neighboring property. That was a magnificent and unexpected treat in an otherwise urban area.

We took our children to the wonderful Zoo in West Palm beach twice. It has the most beautiful carousel I have ever seen. We also went to the Butterfly Conservatory which was fun and has a nice playground on the same grounds.

Our only issue was that the water heater on the pool was not working adequately to warm the water. This was resolved the same day with a new water heater. As the ocean was too cool and surf too big for the kids, the pool was vital and the response by the property managers most prompt and diligent.

The listing description and photos were accurate for this villa, although I might include it is not facing the ocean and lacks ocean views.You can glimpse the ocean, but that's it. The proximity to the ocean is ideal. I would add for safety it would be wise to install the same type of gate that exists for beach access on either side of the building to prevent children pool access. This was a concern for us.

Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend this property to others without reservation.

Christmas as Seaward B

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live in NYC and decided to spend Christmas in Fort Lauderdale this year. After looking for weeks for a place to stay (we didn't want to stay at a hotel) we found Seaward. We were looking for something new and high quality and Seward did not disappoint. The Villa is right on the beach, with a 120 degree view of the beach and ocean as well as a heated pool. The quality of the villa is exceptional. Marble throughout (floors, bathrooms and kitchen), all open plan and new, modern furnishings. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a 5 minute walk away to restaurants and bars, so great location too. This was one of our best Christmas vacations, and we'll be back later this year!
