Awesome retreat! So much more than we expected!
Absolutely awesome place. Fully 'loaded'!Absolutely awesome place. Fully 'loaded'!
This home is fabulous! It's on a quiet street, with a nice cozy entrance and open garage. The home has a spacious living room with all the amenities you can think of. Lights are all over the place, nice LCD TV (with HDMI inputs for those who are techies like me!), sound system (ipod/iphone connection), ceiling fans, Wifi, in home.
Rooms are very well furnished all over and there is more than enough towels to handle all the pool activities and trips to the ocean. Both bathrooms also have bath soaps and hand soaps there.
Kitchen Warning! :) You do NOT need to bring anything from your home or need to purchase any utensils locally to begin cooking. EVERYTHING possible is there from a coffee maker, to blender, to oven pans, utensils, plates galore, pots and pans. Including little stuff like lighters for the clean grill, paper towels, trash bags, hand soap, dishwashing soap, cleaners etc. Fully stocked and that made our lives very easy because we had everything there. All you do is unpack and you're home!
One of the kitchen cabinets even had a good stock of little stuff like salt, sugar, coffee filters some spices etc. Again a small bonus but appreciated.
Highly recommended and the owner is very quick to get in touch if there is a question or a problem.
The location is also perfect. A short walk from Whole Foods, retail and restaurants. The beach wasn't far either (by car).
We would most definitely book this property again and would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in Fort Lauderdale.
