The Livin’ Is Easy
Canal and Private Courtyard Pool in a Modern Luxurious Setting
This newly renovated Designer home is hidden behind a tall wall and
an iron gate providing a tranquil oasis away from the city. It is
hard to imagine that you are still in the center of all the action
of Fort Lauderdale while you lay floating in your warm pool counting
the stars or sitting by your canal counting the fish that jump.
Located on a dead end street, this is a safe and respected area, yet
it is just a few minutes away from everything you would expect to
see in Florida…the ocean, shopping, golf and all the
The “open concept” layout of the house centers around the courtyard
pool in the front and the canal in the back. It offers many
different places to gather as a group and other areas for private
reflection, both indoors and out.
The new marble pool and terrace areas are completely secluded, surrounded by a
tall wall and landscaped with huge pots, cascading flowers and palm
Comfortable chaise lounge beds and cushy seating are provided for
quiet afternoon naps or cozy conversations in the shade of the
vaulted ceiling and the breeze of two outdoor ceiling fans. Or, take
in the full sun any time of the day, then dip in the pool for a
refreshing cool-down.
Lunch or dinner can be easily served by the pool at the outdoor
dining table with gas barbeque and direct access to the kitchen.
This courtyard pool area provides central access to different parts
of the property.
Enter the house through a set of french doors and into the main
living area. Walk down a tropical garden path to sit by the canal to
watch sunset and fish jump. Or lounge in the screened sunroom, also
overlooking the breezy canal and gardens. There is a patio table in
the sunroom so it provides yet another dining area.
Alternatively, access the kitchen or two bedrooms directly from the
pool. The flow of the house is magnificent and provides easy living
and entertaining.
There are plenty of places for sun or shade all day long, both
poolside and at the canal, and lots of places to settle into a good
book or conversation.
Open the french doors off the courtyard pool terrace to reveal a
wonderful open concept Designer home.
This modern renovation includes a stylish granite kitchen with all
the culinary toys to assist the most discriminating chef: modern
side-by-side fridge/freezer/ice machine, stainless steel dishwasher,
oven/stove and microwave. A full size washer and dryer are in the
cabana room so there is no need to pack a lot of clothes.
There are tall stools for casual breakfasts at the granite counter,
and a large oak block table with white leather chairs that overlooks
the pool for more formal dining. Or, eat on a glass garden table in
the screened sunroom overlooking the canal in a surround of uplit
palms, flowers and a banana tree. Here, lingering in the breeze, you
can capture the aroma of the jasmine tree. There is also a lounge
chair and rockers, perfect for an afternoon book nook accompanied
with frosty lemonade.
The entertaining area centers around the wood burning fireplace.
The living room is on one side, kitchen on the other. Dining room
and sunroom complete the quadrant. A large, lofty leather sofa, two
rattan chairs with lots of pillows and a mahogany writing desk all
sit in front of the fireplace on an area rug set on crisp white
ceramic tiles.
All three bedrooms are large. One king with master
ensuite bathroom, including a large walk-in shower, and two guest
bedrooms each with queen beds. The house accommodates 6 people
comfortably. The two guest rooms share the second bathroom with tub
and shower. The master bedroom and one guest room also go directly
out to a garden walkway that leads to the pool (perfect to sneak out
for a midnight dip!)
There are two televisions, CD, DVD and VCR. A new HDTV is in the living room with blue-ray. The house has central heat, air conditioning and ceiling fans in all the main rooms.
A circular drive provides free parking for up to three cars.
This is a prime location in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, surrounded by the Middle River and featuring rows of man-made canals.
The Middle River joins the Atlantic Ocean by way of the Intercoastal
The house is on one of these canals in a very safe and friendly
neighborhood. It is located on a dead end street so there is very
little street traffic. It is very quiet residential and protected by
neighborhood watch.
Within a few minutes you are anywhere you need to be - this is a
great location. The Atlantic Ocean and some of the world's best
sandy beaches are 5 minutes away. There is plenty of parking and
the oceanshore is always kept perfectly clean, monitored by
lifeguards. Watersport attractions or private, more secluded
areas are available depending on which part of the beach you wander to.
Rent a chaise for the day or take one of our beach chairs and the
cooler provided in the house.
The public beach is very active and has been newly restored, but
there are a number of smaller more private beaches too, all along
the coast.
Grocery stores (Publix, Win Dixie, Whole Foods) are all nearby.
Movies, malls and shopping of all types are available. Golf courses
and driving ranges are all a short distance away.
All the well-known chain restaurants and attractions are but a few
minutes away on US #1, including Krispy Kreme, Blockbuster Video,
Boston Market, Ruth's Christ Steak House, to name a few of hundreds.
The main tourist street - Las Olas is 8 minutes away, featuring
galleries, fine dining and bars. The beach strip is 5 minutes away
for night time cruising. The resort town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
is just 10 minutes north.
For day excursions, go to famous Boca Raton (20 min. north), South
Beach-Miami and Lincoln Mall (45 min. south), Sawgrass Mills
Discount Mall (2O minutes west) or the Everglades (30 min west).
The science museum features an Imax theater, and the Art Gallery has
ongoing exhibits that change. Broadway visits the Broward Center,
which is 8 minutes away. Also, don’t miss the old town RIVERWALK and
the Cruise Ship Terminals. Picnic or rollerblade in Hugh Taylor
National Park watching the boats float by.
There are wonderful special events all year round including the Air
Show, the Christmas Boat and Light Parade down the Intercoastal, the
Outdoor Art Weekend, the worlds largest Boat Show and the largest
Flea Market anywhere everyday!!! There is always plenty to do and
see and this house gives you great access to it all

traveler reviews for this fort lauderdale house rental

Couldn't be better!

Review submitted: April 20, 2014   Date of arrival: April 14, 2014

This house was so inviting, comfortable, and lovely that we almost didn't want to leave. The location is perfect - convenient and private. Most rental houses tend to be devoid of character and personality - not so here! Every detail combines to create a perfectly orchestrated whole. The photos on the website accurately reflect the house, but under-represent the stunning impact of the inviting flow between indoors and outdoors. A highlight of our stay other than the house was a fabulous Greek dinner at nearby Thasos restaurant, which is in a stunning white building with pastel colored lighted windows. The food was imaginative and delicious. We booked a private canal boat through Gondolas West and enjoyed a beautiful and affordable sunset tour with Captain Dan. All in all, our stay was perfect.

Great house for relaxtion

Review submitted: January 13, 2014   Date of arrival: December 23, 2013

What a great house! From the first moment we arrived, we appreciated how well it fit our needs.I was traveling with five adults. We were met by Janet, the property manager, who gave us a tour and any instructions we needed. I only had to contact her one time during our stay and she was prompt in responding. The house has everything you might need, the kitchen is well stocked and had every pan and utensil I might have needed. The pool was fabulous, I chose to have it heated and was in it every day. Nice private setting, the only neighbors I saw were across the canal from us. The location is good too, five minutes from the beach, close to many great restaurants, Starbucks, grocery store, etc. All in all, we loved our Christmas vacation here.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway
