This was a fantastic home away from home. We stayed at this beautiful beach home from July 5th through July 12th. We hated to leave. Our 3 teenage children, and ourselves, made this our perfect family vacation.

This home had everything a family could possibly need, including household items, ranging from soaps to beach towels, to extra pillows, to an amazing pool, just to name a few.

Jon is a very caring person willing to do anything for us, to make our stay worry-free.

As promised, the keys were under the mat, and the house was completely ready for us to relax and unwind after a long flight and trip from PA.

This home was perfect even for 3 teens, which I may add, get bored easily. However, this entire week, they all enjoyed their stay, as much as we did.

You can't go wrong by staying at this home.

We enjoyed every minute of it, and it was a pleasure meeting Jon, and how quickly he is available, if you need anything at all.

Jon had made a binder, with tips about how to use the pool, Jacuzzi, lights, directions to super markets, the beach access, tips on dining, pizza delivery, pretty much everything you need to know about the area.

This binder took a lot of stress off of the worry of finding anything.

We plan on returning next year!!

Thank you Jon for the opportunity of meeting you and allowing us to rent your beautiful property!!!

Frank and Cindy

Wonderful place

Review submitted: June 19, 2014   Date of arrival: June 2, 2014

We are from Moscow. We had a really nice vacation at Jon’s house June, 02-09 2014. We enjoyed the house itself as well as close location to the beach. Don’t believe your eyes looking at the pictures of the house – everything is much better in reality! Recent repairs, new sanitary engineering, TVs in each room, clean equipped kitchen, washer and dryer available, good swimming pool with heating and Jacuzzi, friendly hosts – for sure everything helps to have unforgettable holiday with a family.
There are a few supermarkets available not far from Dow street – Publix and Wolmart. There is also a lovely restaurant called Houston's at 2821, East Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach, which we visited following the advice of the host – it worth your attention.
Thinking of the next holiday we don’t doubt as it is hard to find better place to have good rest.

Great vacation!!

Review submitted: April 12, 2014   Date of arrival: January 11, 2014

My husband and I along with my mom (87) stayed at this home for a little over two months. What a gem! We had everything we needed to call it home! It is so convenient to the beach as well as to shopping and restaurants - and in a really great neighborhood! One of my favorite thoughts about this house is the sliding glass doors in BOTH bedrooms that give a beautiful view of the pool and the backyard, and you can just step out onto the pool deck! Also, my dog loved the fenced in back yard and I didn't have to worry about him! Jon, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely rent this home again!

Great Vacation!!!

Review submitted: October 15, 2013   Date of arrival: September 29, 2013

We loved the place:) We came as a party of 5 with two couples and one single person and everybody had their own bedroom and bathroom, which was great. We loved the pool and the close walk to the beach. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood and this was exactly what we needed. We really enjoyed the whole stay and we would definitely consider the place for our next vacation in Florida.-
A big "thumbs up" for the owners for keeping the place very clean and organized.:) Thank you Jon for accommodating us and we really hope to visit future:)

Perfect Get Away

Review submitted: June 29, 2012   Date of arrival: June 17, 2012

My girlfriend and I picked this house for our recent get away to South Florida and could not be happier. The house was perfect for us. It was right at the beach, but I spent as much time in the private pool. The neighborhood is great and it gave us plenty of privacy which is just what we wanted. The house is also loacted to good restaurants and very close to all surrounding attractions. I would recommend it again and plan to go back. The house was very clean and fully stocked with everything you need, all we needed to bring was our cloths! Also, it is perfect for pets, our dogs loved it!

Awesome vacation home!

Review submitted: May 28, 2012   Date of arrival: April 11, 2012

This beautiful little house is as advertised. Clean, near the beach, and close to restaurants and shopping too. The neighborhood is friendly, safe, and everything you could ever want in a rental house in Florida.

The owners both live in town and are easily reachable. We can't wait to go back!!

A little piece of heaven

Review submitted: April 4, 2012   Date of arrival: February 27, 2012

Situated a block from Pompano Beach, this charming little house has everything you basically need to make your vacation wonderful. We spent most of our time in the backyard, enjoying the pool during the day and the hot tub at night. If the BBQ gas tank needed to be filled, the owner was just a phone call away. Everything in the house worked well, such as appliances, the Internet, the A/C and the pool. A true gem. We would certainly consider going back.

Fantastic home for a family vacation!

Review submitted: March 25, 2012   Date of arrival: February 1, 2012

We've been renting houses in South Florida for the last 5 years and this was by far our best experience. The pictures and description on the web are just as the house appears. The backyard with the patio and pool/spa are beautiful and it such a short walk to the beach. The owners were great! Very attentive and responsive to our needs. This is a great vacation rental home. I would strongly recommend it to anyone considering a family getaway.

Owners response: This was a handwritten review left at our rental home from a family that stayed at our house this past February. Great renters!
