Great rental

  • 4 of 5

Let me start off saying, for the price of the rental, you would be silly not to book.

The pros: THE POOL!!! I love love love their pool. The fact that you have the benefit of using it and not have to share the pool with a hotel, its amazing. They have kept their property in such great condition. It was perfect. The rental itself is super cute, well maintained. The owners, I only got to meet Rolf and he is such a nice guy. Great person to talk to.

The reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the mattress. God it did a number on my back and my husband's. We are so use to memory foam mattresses I suppose that I just couldn't tolerate the spring of the matress we slept on. Also the lack of cookware. I know what you are thinking, who cooks on vacation right? lol However I do like to cook when the mood strikes and one pot didn't cut it for me. Another plus is the shower pressure...omg it was so good. I feel that if there were a few upgrades done here and there, I would more than happily pay more.

As a home owner and a person that wants to protect your investment, I would put a barrier between the rug and the tile of the bathroom, because if you have people that aren't careful or careless, water can seep into the rug and it would be a mold issue later on.

Thank you for having such a great rental. I can't wait for the opportunity to stay again. Take care :)

Owner's Response: Hello and thanks for your review. Sorry you didn't find all the pots and pans in the drawer under the oven. I wish you would have asked, as we'd be happy to point them out. We even have a wok there. We appreciate your observations about the mattress and the rug and will look into making those adjustments.

Me and my wife had to reschedule our February honeymoon trip and move it up to December and we found the Kraushaus. The apartment is right off the main road which makes it very convenient for adventuring. Unfortunately it rained our 4/5 days we were there but the apartment is so cozy and relaxing that it almost didn't matter. There was a pool and hot tub on site also so we got in some of our swimming needs there since the ocean was not really an option. The owner is very friendly, welcoming, a great conversationalist, and very knowledgeable about the area. He had some great suggestions for restaurants to try, things to do, and explained how everything worked in his condo. Our trip would've been a total bust if it wasn't for the Kraushaus.

Owner's Response: Hi Matt, thanks for your nice review! I was telling my wife how badly I felt about the weather during your visit. Hopefully you'll be able to visit us again someday, with the baby... we have a small crib you can use :) Take care! Rolf & Ingrid

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

We found your home by chance, and we thought it was a fabulous house (only with the pictures and the description we saw). And once arrived, we were all surprised to see your little paradise ! Everything was just perfect, amazing, and beautiful. You guys were so welcome, helpful and nice, and very free when we had some questions. The house was really clean, and functional, no problem. I recommend your house to everybody who wants to spend a peaceful moment in Florida. 5* for Ingrid & Rolf !

Excellent Location, Thoughtful Owners, Wonderful Florida Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Kraushaus in April for some much needed R&R. The owner was very gracious and helpful, including firing up the hot tub for us late one evening prior to our arrival back so it would be ready when we arrived! The unit itself is well appointed with TV's, a comfortable bed and couch, nice kitchen and laundry, a luxurious bathroom and the nicest private pool and hot tub I've ever used. The place was great for 2 of us, but considering we were barely there, 4 would be fine too. It was 5 minutes from Pompano Beach, but the pool was so nice we will be using that more next time. I will definitely reach out to Rolf again for my next Pompano/FLL/MIA stay. Thank you both for being such gracious hosts, we really enjoyed your apartment!

Wirklich schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren insgesamt 4 Personen (2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder). Die Wohnung war vollkommend ausreichend, gut ausgestattet, sauber und die Außenanlage ist sehr gepflegt. Die Lage der Wohnung/des Hauses ist schon einmalig, sie liegt auf einer kleinen Insel mit insgesamt nur 6 Häusern. Weiterhin kann man herrlich an diesem wunderschönen Pool entspannen. Der Strand sowie Restaurants und Supermärkte liegen alle im Nahbereich und sind gut zu erreichen. Auch die umliegenden Städte wie Fort Lauderdale, Miami usw. sind nicht wirklich weit entfernt. Wir haben wirklich viel unternommen, aber das war ja auch so von uns geplant (wenn man schon mal in den USA Urlaub macht). Hinzu kamen tolle Tipps vom Rolf (Vermieter) in Bezug auf weitere Unternehmungen (Parks, Restaurants, schöne kleine Strandabschnitte und natürlich lokale Veranstaltungen) oder auch einfach nur allgemeine Dinge. Da machte sich das Insiderwissen von Rolf sehr bemerkbar und wir habe diese Tipps auch dankend angenommen. Wir hatten einen wirklich sehr schönen Urlaub bei euch (Rolf, Ingrid und Jett). Hiermit möchten wir uns hier nochmal für eure Gastfreundschaft bedanken (und dem leckeren Eisteller bei Flanigans ). Sollten wir nochmals in dieser Gegend Urlaub machen, dann seid Ihr unsere 1 Adresse.

Sonnige Grüße aus Deutschland Heiko, Andrea, Leonie und Amelie

We were a total of 4 people (2 adults and 2 children). The apartment was perfectly adequate, well equipped, clean and the grounds are very well maintained. The location of the apartment / house is quite unique, it is located on a small island with a total of only 6 houses. Furthermore, you can come relax in this beautiful pool. The beach, restaurants and supermarkets are all within close range and are easy to reach. The surrounding cities such as Fort Lauderdale, Miami, etc. are not really far away. We have really done a lot, but that was also planned so of us (if done before in the USA Holidays). There were great tips from Rolf (owner) in relation to other things (parks, restaurants, beautiful small beach sections and of course local events) or just general things. Since the insider knowledge of Rolf was very noticeable and we have adopted these tips also gratefully. We had a really great holiday with you (Rolf, Ingrid and Jett). Herewith we would like to thank you again for your hospitality here (and the delicious Eisteller at Flanigan ). Should we re-do in the area on holiday, then you are our one address.

Sunny greetings from Germany
