About Boyd

I moved to Fort Lauderdale 15 years ago. I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland but found that Florida's tropical climate suited me. I have travelled the world spending over a year in Thailand learning the language, studied for a semester in Perth, Australia, visited South Africa for a few months, worked on a 210 foot private yacht in the Caribbean and have backpacked all over Europe. I studied French for a few years and I understand a tiny bit of Spanish. Don't worry if you don't speak English very well. I am used to communicating with people who speak little English!

Boyd purchased this house in 2003

Why Boyd chose Fort Lauderdale

I designed and built this house as an owner/builder which means I acted as the general contractor. I studied other homes and wanted to create something special. Nobody else has a hot tub on their second floor deck. It's important to have a shady area near the pool since you can't spend all your time in the sun. I designed the electric heated marble pool with a 6 foot wide waterfall and an umbrella so it would give the house a resort feeling. My pool is nicer than the pools you would find in most $2 million homes!

What makes this house unique

Everybody wants privacy. I planted the areca palm and oleander trees myself back in 2006. They give the backyard complete privacy so you can use the heated outdoor shower anytime and bathing suits are optional. Even the hot tub is completely private except for the moon and the stars!

Nice house. Great pool with lots of privacy. Clean

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year. Although not on the beach we are only a ten minute drive away and the truth is we enjoyed the pool so much we never missed a swim in the ocean. We did go for walks on the beach and that was enough. The house is lovely and we felt like it was our home away from home. We had friends join us last year for a week and they were very happy to know that we were inviting them to be there again. We found Boyd always accessible if we had a question about anything at the house. He could not have been any more than accommodating. When we about to stay in a hotel one night before we headed home we were invited to stay in the spare room of the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Boyd.

Wilton Manors House

  • 5 of 5

House was great, very private, clean and well maintained, great pool, exactly as advertised. Close to downtown Fort Lauderdale, 15 minutes to Las Olas Blvd. The homeowner could not have done anything more for us. Definitely recommend to friends and relatives.

So glad we found this place!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home with only a week's notice after being unceremoniously dropped from a booking we had elsewhere in the region.

From the first point of contact the owner, Boyd, could not have been more helpful. He gave us many tips on the area, and answered any questions we had immediately. There was also a tip sheet waiting for us in the house on our arrival, and we followed many of them.

The house is as seen in the photos, only better. The pool has many levels to it, which kept our kids entertained all week. The garden is completely private. The TV has cable, which meant even us Brits could find something decent to watch! And the kitchen has everything you could need for your holiday.

The location offers easy access to I-95, but is around 15 minutes to Las Olas and central Ft Lauderdale. There are plenty of nearby convenience stores and coffee shops, and a host of restaurants less than 10 minutes drive away. The area also plenty of routes for the joggers that dont want to parade up and down the ocean front.

We would highly recommend taking a segway tour down at Birch State Park, and Miami Beach is close enough to be a must. Outside of that enjoy the pool and chill out.

We are delighted we stayed at Boyd's place, and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Ft Lauderdale area.

Lovely Stay in Ft.Lauderdale at Chez Boyd

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended house with good facilitaties where the pictures do not quite do it justice. We had a lovely stay in Ft.L, property was as described, well maintained with everything you needed.

Boyd is a great owner, excellent communication, he went out of his way before we arrived answering all our queries & checking out a number of restaurants for us so that our stay was perfect.

Many Thanks & will recommend to anyone looking for a holiday home in that area of Ft.L.

The house is in Wilton Manors (part of Fort Lauderdale) and is 15 minutes walking distance from the shops and restaurants of Wilton Manors on Wilton Drive. 5 miles from Downtown Fort Lauderdale. 3 miles from the beach. Just east of I-95 located near Andrews Avenue between Oakland Park Boulevard and Sunrise Boulevard (two main exits of I-95).

Fort Lauderdale is one of the world's premier sport fishing destinations. Sailfish, Swordfish, Snapper, Tuna, etc. Charter your own boat with captain for a half day or full day. The scuba diving here is great with lots of wrecks to dive and fishes to see. Plenty of sightseeing boats, snorkelling boats - even a water taxi which runs along the inter-coastal canal next to some incredible waterfront mansions. Golf, sailing, and tours of the Everglades National Park are other activities to keep you busy on your vacation! Great food, world famous beaches, fantastic night-life, the list goes on and on. Tourists and locals love being in Fort Lauderdale. You will too!

Other Activities: Ocean, beach, sunshine, night-life - Fort Lauderdale has everything but snow skiing!

Notes:
Washer and dryer conveniently located upstairs near the bedrooms. There is a hot and cold outdoor shower next to the pool which is private - the neighbours can't see it! Great for rinsing off after a swim or you can take all your showers out in the Florida sunshine! No smoking inside the house. Smoking allowed on deck outside bedrooms and covered patio off living room. Kitchen has two sinks and a wine cooler. Fridge has chilled filtered water and ice machine in freezer door. The house has a portable crib, high chair and stroller. I have never rented to anyone with a dog or cat. I would consider a longer term rental to someone with pets but there would be an additional charge to cover steam cleaning everything.
