Property Details

Updated: Oct 19, 2014
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.

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!

Top location, high quality in perfect setting

  • 5 of 5
Excellent maintained house with all perks. The house has all you need for a perfect stay in sunny Ft. Lauderdale. 10 minutes walk to the beach(which is not very crowed), nice pool, hot tub and very well maintained. At arrival all useful start up articles were in place, shampoo, toilet paper, kitchen paper, soft drinks (even a beer or 2), dish-washing soap, etc etc. For international traveller very nice start of the vacation.

Plenty of things to do, within 30 minutes at least 3 very big malls(Galleria, Sawgrass Mills and Dolphins mail), Miami Marlin baseball, Miami and Everglades wildlife. And plenty of restaurants.

A wildlife that is present in the garden (butterflies, squirrels, lizards (small ones)). The pictures on the internet do not give full view of the space and size of the house. In real life it is much nicer and bigger.

So highly recommended with a very proactive owner!

This was a Women's week getaway and this house was the perfect choice. We had all the amenities that we needed and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. We loved everything about this house and the owner John was more than accomadating. We hope to rent this property again in the near future and would highly recommend it. Thanks again John for allowing us to make this our home for a week. We made some pretty awesome memories for years to come.

We stayed for 9 days and totally enjoyed our time there! It was close to the beach, bars and restaurants. We love the Fort Lauderdale area and this house made us enjoy it even more! The back yard and pool area was so relaxing! The house was very clean and welcoming....we felt right at home the minute we walked through the door! We would recommend this vacation home to everyone and we will definitely be back! Thanks John & Marcy for allowing us to rent and enjoy your vacation rental home!
