The Best Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival we were greeted by Mark who had a basket of fruit, coffee and Danish. He showed us arounf the home and how to work everything. The entire home was very spotless, and smelled amazing. We spent alot of our vacation in the backyard, the children lived in the pool and on the slide. The adult hung around the bbq pit, sipping cocktails and enjoying the outdoor speakers. If you choose this place, the only thing you need to do is make a grocgery stop and to bring your clothes. There are endless towels, endless shampoos, lotions, soaps, razors, shaving cream, suntan lotion. My family and I totally enjoyed this place, I am kicking myself because I have to work this year and can not return. There is no other place I would rather stay though. The neighborhood is very peaceful and clean as well. There is pleanty of room to park your cars as we had 3 rentals that week. There a coffee maker, dishwasher alot of dishes you can use. I spent most of my mornings sipping coffee by the pool enjoying the Florida breeze. I can go on and on about this place, there are 3 tv at this home that I can say the children did not even bother turning on. Mark you have an amazing home!!!!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

These pictures do NOT do justice to this place!! We thought the slide would be fun for our little ones, but it was fun for the whole family. The back is a mix between a tropical resort and water park. We had a blast! And there was plenty of room to eat our meals outside. There was plenty of shady areas for those who wanted, as well as places to lay out in the sun. The back was very secluded and private.

The house was very spacious, and had plenty of room for our family of nine. The beds were comfortable, and everything was provided, including an office space and various eating areas. Even little details like playing cards, books and magazines to read, toiletries, a cooler for trips, a stroller, a shopping carrier, and typical kitchen essentials, like various spices. It was obvious that a lot of thought went into making guests comfortable during their stay.

This was our best vacation ever, and we look forward to returning!

Can't wait to go back:)

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to describe how awesome the experience was from start to finish. Mark was so attentive from the beginning process to rent the home until the end. The home is spacious, clean, fully furnished, and the backyard is AWESOME:) You will spend the majority of the time outside enjoying the pool, barbecue grill, etc. You can't ask for more. The neighborhood is so calm, peaceful and secure. Everything is nearby. The beaches are about a 15-20 minute drive, depending where you go. Miami about 30 minutes away without traffic. So if you are staying at this house you will have to drive to go to the beach, but that's nothing compared to the home you will be renting. If you are thinking about renting this property, think no more. It's worth every penny:) Plus, Mark was wonderful (even after the neighbors called him to complain about the kids making too much noise the first day we got there). Please note that we didn't have any problems with the neighbors the entire week that we were there, so please don't think that the neighbors were the problem. Our kids were the problem:):) they were too excited the first day we got there and stayed up until 2:30am, so they were really loud and I don't blame the neighbors. Bottom line, if you are wondering about this property, THINK NO MORE!!! other Florida homes may have pools, but this one was a lot better with the slide, sitting area outside, grill. We will definitely be back again. Thanks so much Mark for everything!

Owner's Response: Hello, Your welcome and thanks so much for your wonderful review. I can't believe your kids stayed up till 2:30 in the morning......... Wow, they really were excited about being there.... and of course with the pool, the slide and the waterfall etc. it's easy to understand their excitement. It was like having their own private water park. I'm very glad you had a great time, and hope you will come back again. Thanks again for your kind words and your great review about your vacation experience at our property. Mark

Great place for young family to "take the show on the road"

  • 5 of 5


House is good for cooking, eating, pool-time and in a quiet and good neighborhood. The nearby park was fantastic for our little-ones. Driving into FLL was easy-peasy. As mentioned many times above, Mark provides excellent service and his responsiveness is actually one of the reasons we picked this place.


Just small things. We had a grill issue that took some time to fix, the pool temp could have been a bit higher, etc. Nothing to stop us from returning. Very satisfied and highly recommend.

Great Place

We stayed last summer at Mark's place. He was very friendly and responsive to any questions or requests we had. The house was amazing and the backyard area with the pool, slide and bbq area was our favorite area to hang out. Thanks Mark
