This fantastic pool home features your own private, mini-water park with a cave/grotto covering a circular, jetted spa with a waterfall cascading over the poolside entrance. An enclosed tubular water slide wraps around the cavern and empties into the pool in front of the waterfall. There is a huge enclosed pavillion area with wood decking and an array of casual seating cooled by overhead fans. At one end of the pavillion is an outdoor wet bar with stainless Jenn-Air BBQ gas grill, fridge and sink ready for you to pour a favorite beverage, prepare a snack or BBQ. The entire pool area looks spectacular as it is lit up at night. You will spend 90% of your time in the pool or lounging and sunbathing around the beautifully landscaped deck area. This truly can be your family's own 'Slice of Paradise'. Contact us today for more information and to book your vacation of a lifetime!

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!!!!

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

  • 5 of 5

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

Could live in the backyard!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, three girls and I spent a week at this property and we had a hard time leaving the backyard. Family loved the pool/waterpark, outdoor kitchen and comforting amenities.

House was great and can accomodate several guests.

Definitely plan on being back. If you are debating booking this property - just book it!

Beyond your wildest dreams!

  • 5 of 5

This paradise wasn't exactly as described - it was definitely BETTER! The Property was clean and well maintained. Mark greeted us upon arrival and showed us around. He was just a phone call away if we needed something. Our grandchildren (and the adults) were reluctant to leave the private water park for meals and bed. We had a fantastic family vacation and would definitely like to return sometime. After viewing photos of the kids in the pool, the outdoor bar and barbecue, and many other fantastic features, many of our friends and relatives have indicated they want to rent this house, also. Thank you Mark for letting us rent this beautiful retreat!
