Property Details

Updated: Sep 12, 2014
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Casa Del Sol is an intimate Resort/Marina located on Lake Seminole, which is connected to the Intercoastal Waterway via a short canal near Sunrise Bridge, in the heart of Fort Lauderdale's waterfront area.

From Casa Del Sol one can walk to the BGeach, the water Taxi, the very upscale Galeria Mall with it's designer shops, a large Publix Super Market, starbucks, a pharmacy, 5 world class restaurants, two exclusive coctail lounges, a gourmet but inexpensive food court at the Galeria Mall, and a dozen or so high quality restaurants.

Our guests have made Casa Del Sol a popular resort. 70% of them return year after year. Warm fellowship occurs each evening as we all gather for the sinset and our sundowner beaverages and snacks under the canopy. Casa Del Sol has many foreign visitors and that just makes the evenings much more meaningful as we are exposed to different cultures. We are a favorite place for Europeans.

Llife Long friendships begin here.

This condo unit #5 has teriffic views of Lake Seminole and our swimming pool. It is water front. There is a king size bed, TV, and walk in closed in the bedroom. There is a separate dinning area off the kitchen which is equiped with ice making refrigrator and dish washer. The living room has two couches and a chair, TV plus a desk in an alcove. Of course it has those terrific views of the pool and water.

Casa Del Sol offers DirecTV with 5 HBO channels, WIFI, and an international telephone system (vonage) that allows free calls to 60 different countries.

There are 7 units at Casa. If this one is full maybe there is space in another.

Great and easy place! Totally enjoyed our stay.

I decided to write this review to help others as I have never booked accommodation using this method and wanted to try the experience. I usually book into hotels or stay with family.

I had looked at different properties in the location I needed to stay. Casa Del Sol appealed to me as the price was very reasonable for the 3 week period and area I wanted. I contacted the owner via this site, a month before I was due to travel. I called the number and spoke to Alyson Warren. Alyson was great. We agreed the rate and price and she answered any questions I had about the area. This reassured me as I did have concerns about using the site initially. Alyson then copied me into the email she sent to the booking agent so that we could arrange payment as agreed.

The ladies at the booking agent were great and helpful too and contacted me within 24 hours. Any questions I had they tried to answer but advised the best person to speak to would be the site manager, Nick on arrival.

Casa Del Sol is lovely. My partner and I stayed in Apt 5. We had transport, it was easy to find once you have a GPS/SatNav or are with someone who knows their way around. Everything was perfect, ready and waiting for arrival.

The unit was exactly as the photos show. There are 7 units in total, all one bedroom. The details given about the properties are a true account. I also paid extra for international calls and cleaning once a week as the prices were reasonable. They can accommodate 2 extra people on sofa bed.

If I had to be 'super critical', the only 2 things would be that they should boost/upgrade their internet/WiFi services to be able to take the volume of usage, when all units are occupied at the same time. Also, the Apt./resort, would benefit from 2-3 cosmetic/paint touch ups. Just so that evidence of previous water leaks/repairs, now resolved, do not give the wrong impression.

Nick is down to earth, polite and helpful. He is contactable by mobile and is usually on site for a time each day. We had disrupted access to the WiFi connection. Told Nick, who did try and eventually manage to get this sorted out. Other minor issues, were sorted immediately.

The area is beautiful! It is easier with a car but if you like to walk, the Galleria Mall and Publix is literally a 10 minute walk away and the beach is close by too. There are always taxis around near the Mall or call one.

We would return again, no doubt. We loved the relaxed nature and freedom to do as you want.

Owner's Response: Hi Lorraine,

Thanks for your kind review. As you have discovered, Alyson is British and lives in Bristol. She is reachable on that side of the Atlantic. Also our USA booking office has a London telephone number that you can call without incurring trans atlantic telephone fees. Once at the resort you can phone home for about 6P per minute buy purchasing 100 minutes prepaid for about 6.5 pounds. ($10).

This past year has been our busiest year ever. Nick has already performed the touch up painting as October had some vacancies. The WIFI issues, though rare, are being dealth with as well. There is a hard wired internet connection in each apartment. Did you try that? Of couse it is not good for smart phones and I Pads.

We look forward to your return visit and hopefully I will be on site to welcome you.

My wife and I recently took two weeks in Fort Lauderdale. We stay at two different places, one on the beach and the other at Casa Del Sol Resort/Marina because neither place was available for the entire two weeks. Both locations are owned by the same person and both were First Class.

Casa Del Sol was fantastic. It was totally relaxing, beautifully cared for and full of interesting people from all corners of the world. There are only 7 units so one quickly gets to know one’s fellow guests. The social nature of Casa Del Sol really appealed to us. We met a couple from Finland, another from Holland and one from England. The rest were from the USA.

We had a car but one could really get along without one. The Galleria Mall is 10 minutes by food and there is a giant supermarket just across the street from the mall. The beach was about 6 minutes further.

The apartment itself was quite spacious with a full kitchen. We particularly enjoyed the Bar B Q under the canopy. There was always someone doing a cook out for supper there. We used it 3 times.

We saw some other apartments at Casa Del Sol and would stay in any one of them.

While we were there Casa Del Sol received the “White Glove Award” from an organization called Superior Small Lodging. It was impeccably clean. The swimming pool sparkled.

We also stayed at he owner’s “on the beach” condo. That too was excellent. Maybe next year we will again stay at both, who knows.

Owner's Response: I remember this couple well. They stayed at both properties, our ocean front FortLauderdale- on the beach and our water front Casa Del Sol Resort/Marina. The two properties do each have a different ambiance. Casa Del Sol is very intimate and one gets to know everyone personally. The different backgrounds of our guests is one of the gems in our social nature at Casa Del Sol. Casa Del Sol is waterfront with mega yachts in the background.

But of course the other is 70 paces from the apartment until your feet are in the Atlantic Ocean.
