Excellent location and all amenities I wanted; owner very responsive.

  • 4 of 5

This modest 1 bedroom apartment is part of a duplex with a shared private pool and excellent location on the waterway and only blocks from the beach. Everything was clean and in order. Small kitchen, but well appointed and stocked with dishes, silverware and cookware. Owner was very responsive when we had questions. The larger 3 bedroom unit was vacant during our stay, which allowed unlimited access to the backyard and large pool. I would rent again if given the opportunity!

Romantic cottage in upscale resort town

  • 5 of 5

Located in a high-end residential area of the upscale resort town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, the cottage gives an immediate relaxed vacation feeling, and in a safe environment, just a short walking distance (2 blocks) from the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and only few blocks from the waterfront restaurants and entertainment around Anglin’s Square and the famous pier.

The 1-bedroom cottage is beautifully decorated with original antiques, the kitchen is fully equipped , and the living amazingly relaxing and lounge-style.

The cottage is connected to the neighboring larger villa (where we spent 3 weeks after checking out from this amazing cottage) with which the tiki bar, outdoor heated pool and deck is shared, so that al these facilities can be enjoyed as well while, for those wishing to stay more private, the green backyard displays 2 sun chairs.

The a/c works well and the wifi signal is perfect, so in case you stay in town on business, like we did, you can rely on the fastest internet connection whether for a skype conf or for watching a movie.

Mrs. Sabrina Montemerani, the property manager, provided an outstanding customer service, blending the skills and competence of a seasoned travel agent with those of a highly-professional real estate agent.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location near the beach. The place was clean and well equipped for everything we needed. The pool was fantastic on a very quiet canal. Great time for 3 weeks in Fort Lauderdale. I would stay here again.

Lovely Villa in perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Villa Hibiscus is a lovely villa in a quiet street, 5 minutes walk to the beach and 10 minutes walk to Anglin Square bars and restaurants. The pool is beautiful, as is the seating / eating area overlooking the Intracoastal.

The villa has plenty of space for 2 people, with a large bedroom and walk in closet. It is well equipped with cooking utensils (including a kettle for those of us who drink tea!), a large fridge, loads of towels, beach and bath, and a good hairdryer ( not one of those useless ones attached to the wall). Our only minor criticism is that the bathroom could do with updating and it would be good to have a room safe for passports, valuables etc.

You share the pool and outside space with Unit A next door, and this property has 3 bedrooms, so depending on the time of year, you are likely to be sharing with a family.

Sabrina, the manager, and all the other staff we met, were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and vey enjoyable.

We will definitely be back!

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

The unit is located two short blocks from the nearest beach access and about three blocks from the intersection of Commercial and Ocean, the hub of local restaurants and shops. This is useful since parking is metered and limited near the shore.

The pictures are generally accurate, though the unit has a bit more wear and tear. The kitchen is well-furnished and there are plenty of towels, both for the bath and the beach. We especially liked the seating next to the canal. The unit is a rental and is not owner occupied. Communication is via a management company, not the owner.

The internet access rarely ever worked. The Apple devices displayed a strong WIFI signal icon, but the apps could not reach the internet. So we depended on Starbucks.

As per contract, the pool was not serviced during the stay, so after the first day or so, the pool was too dirty to use. Or at least, the debris floating in it made it uninviting.

The only serious concern was the lack of a working smoke detector. A new one was in the closet in its original packaging.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry about the pool, the only issue i knew, was the internet connections, you could have tell me about the pool and I would have sent someone to take care of it right away. Regarding the smoke detector, thanks to let me know about it, i will send right away someone to installed it. Regarding the internet, we will do our best to make it works perfectly for futures clients. Thanks for your stay! Sabrina
