Overview

Property Details

Updated: Apr 19, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Relax in the privacy of your own pool and hot tub or walk only two blocks and be on Fort Lauderdale Beach. You can't beat the location. The Broward Convention Center is only a five minute walk away. And only a ten minute walk to Fort Lauderdale's historical Elbo Room. You are also just a five minute walk to the marina where you can book a fishing or diving tour or parasailing adventure. And only 10 minutes from Fort Lauderdale International Airport. Not only is this house in a great location but it has recently been completely remodeled and refurnished!

When you walk through the front door you are welcomed with a large living area that leads through french doors to a very private pool and hot tub surrounded by palm trees. You can relax in the lounge chairs with or without an umbrella or enjoy the covered lounge area.

This house is perfect for entertaining inside or out. There is a grill outside with a covered seating area. The kitchen is large with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The indoor dining table seats 6 and also has french doors that open to another outside covered area with a table that seats 6.

The house has stunning travertine floors throughout. The master bedroom has a king size bed and it's own bathroom with walk-in shower. One guest room has two twin beds and the other has a queen size bed. All the bedrooms have tv's.

The pool and patio area are all new with tumbled marble deck, gorgeous, tropical blue pool with cascading waterfall from the hot tub. The pool is heated and surrounded by palm trees for privacy. You can even shower outside in the hot water shower.

There is a large circular driveway with plenty of parking on site. There are four bikes available, a back pack, beach bags and beach towels. You can also get on the trolley that goes right by the house. The trolley cost $1.00 and does continuous loops along A1A to the beach, to the shops on Las Olas Blvd. and to the nearby Publix Grocery Store and Shops of Harbor Beach.

AWESOME VACATION PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for 5 nights and it was a awesome vacation home. It was only a short walk to the beach, and Sun Trolley Transportation just outside with easy access to the beach area, beach place, harbour shops and Publix. The owner was amazing with deal with and the home had absolutely everything that you may need. The home was very clean and spacious. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation rental in Fort Lauderdale. So glad we chose this property and the owner was awesome to deal with. Thanks John for a wonderful experience as this was our first time booking a rental property and using vacation rentals.com.

Our Annual Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented from John and Marcy three years in a row, and we are already booked for our 4th visit! Our kids now call it their Florida home, and we all look forward to our vacation there every year. Their house has everything you could possibly need, everything is spotless, and the backyard is AMAZING! With a pool, hot tub and covered sitting area we spend many days happy to just lounge pool side. There is a beautiful beach just a short walk from the house and John and Marcy go out of their way to make us feel welcome every year. The family is so rested and relaxed at the end of our trip that we don’t want to leave. Thank you John and Marcy and see you in December!

Best vacation property

  • 5 of 5
Thank you John and Marcy for making your home available for our vacation. The home was all we could have hoped for. It was was so accommodating, clean and well maintained. The pool and hot tub were so inviting that we hated to leave. With the beach only 21/2 blocks away and all restaurants in close proximity it made our stay so enjoyable. We will certainly return given the chance. Once again, thank you John and Marcy for making our stay so enjoyable.

Better Impossible!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting vacation homes for the last 05 years, and this was the best value/Quality/confort of all we have stayed. Pictures shown does not represent how nice the house really is!!!
Well equipped, kitchen ( dish washing soap, paper towels every utensil), bathrooms ( Shampoo/ Toilet paper/hand soap,etc,etc,etc) every inch was really neat and clean, even the garage!!!.I have three sons (6,7,12)and the pool was perfect and safe for them, enjoyed till the last minute. Beach and retaurants are a bike ride away - even walking.
Thank you John for being so thoughtful,you thought of everything you would look and need in a vacation home. We'll be back for sure!!!

Best vacation property!

  • 5 of 5
This house was the best house we could have asked for, not only the location was spectacular (1/4 of a mile from the beach, restaurants and shopping), but also the design and comfort of this house was fabulous! it was very difficult to leave after 5 days in paradise.
John and Marcy have done a remarkable job with their property, everything is perfect, the pool, the jacuzzi, the Palm trees and landscape in the backyard, the kitchen is well stocked, the beds are comfortable, the living area is inviting and spacious, they even have bikes and beach chairs and umbrellas if needed!
John and Marcy...we will come back FOR SURE, you have made our son drop off to college a much nicer experience than anticipated, even though it was a very emotional time, your house made it a sweeter event!
Thank you so much!

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house for our vacation. It was inviting and cozy, we felt very comfortable the minute we stepped in. Also, very clean!!! The beds are comfortable, good size closets, kitchen is spacious, and all the basics (towels, toilet paper, tissues, plastic cutlery etc) are well stocked. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. We didn't want to leave, and are already planning the next trip.
Thank you John and Marcy for maintaining your home so well. We can not wait to come back!
