vacation rental description

Location: 3220 S Terra Mar Dr Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL 33062

This Mediterranean style villa is located on a private island right in between the Intracoastal Waterway and the ocean in the vacation town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.  A private beach club is only a few minutes walk away, offering tables, BBQ grills, outside showers and shade.  Surfboards, beach chairs and coolers are in the two car garage for your enjoyment while you vacation with us. The island itself is extremely safe and guarded by a gate avoiding any kind of through traffic, making it a real joy for joggers and kids on bicycles. The castle style entrance surrounded by marble stone work gives this mansion a feel of grandeur, which continues as you enter into the two story high entrance with the marble staircase and a grande chandelier. 

The second floor features two master suites, each with private bathroom. The Master bedroom has a king size bed in a Las Vegas size suite, with a TV seating corner, a walk in closet with refrigerator, and a sizable bathroom suite with dual shower heads, spa bath and separate toilet room.. The second suite has 2 sets of bunk beds with a full size bed on bottom and a twin on top, a trundle and an extra twin bed. The floors are made of wood and the centerpiece Berber carpet. Each suite has its own balcony, and a hammock and chaises offer relaxing ways to enjoy the sunset. There is a separate laundry room with washer and dryer for each floor, along with a built in ironing board. There is also access stairs to get onto the roof top terrace, giving you a great view of the surroundings, the ocean as well as fireworks if you are lucky enough to stay here during July 4th. 

The over 4000 square feet of living space are finished with the highest grade materials,  and as you enter into the large living and entertaining space you will truly appreciate the floor to ceiling custom wood work that embraces the entertainment wall with a large built in TV, and continues to the bar with a Subzero dual zone wine cooler, a custom built in cigar humidor, ice maker, bar dishwasher, bar TV and built in industrial style beer kegorator (filled upon request with draft beer of your choice).   The kitchen offers a 5 burner gas stove with a pot filler, double ovens, built in microwave and warming drawer. The double size Subzero refrigerator completes the high end line of VIKING appliances, and the open kitchen floor plan allows the chef to interact with the guests while enjoying the water view through the over-sized glass sliding doors.  All counter tops in the kitchen, island, and bar are solid granite. The dining room features a 'hot spot' with a restaurant like heated serving station for the perfect family holiday dinner.  The 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor have en suite beautiful marble bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a king size bed and direct access to the spa and pool area, and the 2nd bedroom downstairs has 3 twin beds of which 2 may be converted into a king upon request.  The home connoisseur will appreciate the faux paintings and many custom built wood features that make this a true custom home.  

This home is built to entertain, and the solid glass front makes a seamless connection to the lush outdoors. The heated pool is surrounded by nature stone, and a waterfall spills fresh water into it.  The pool area features  lush landscaping connecting with the stones, and the attached spa overflows into the pool as well, giving it a unique "cove" like feel.Both pool and spa are salt water chlorinated to be gentle on eyes and skin, especially for children who like to swim with open eyes.  The WEBER stainless BBQ is connected to permanent natural gas ( never run out of gas ...) and offers a great way to enjoy the outside, and the sitting area and chaises with 2 sun umbrellas offer great views to the yacht traffic on the Intracoastal Waterway. The house has a dock with power and water offering space for up to a 60'foot yacht and access to the Atlantic Ocean without fixed bridges. It features 35/50amp power and pilings for docking. The city provides a free shuttle service from the island to restaurants, shops and supermarkets in the area called 'The Pelican Hopper'; no need to drive after enjoying some wine or beer over dinner; just make the call and the Hopper comes and picks you up to return you safely back home.

This property is located in the town of Lauderdale by the Sea and subject to its minimum 7 day rental ordinance.

Supe house in walking distance to beach and bars

Review submitted: January 16, 2013   Date of arrival: June 6, 2012

Tammy Boucher Yardley, PA Mike, We had a great time at the house. Everyone agreed we would definitely come back to Villa Toscana for a future girls weekend. The location was great and we totally enjoyed everything the house had to offer. We were able to walk to the beach, local restaurants and bars and even pick up some necessities at the local Walgreens, all without the need for a vehicle. The home was well designed and very luxurious. It was really conducive to 8 women when we need to get ready to go our or get a little space to ourselves. Kai was great too. He was so accommodating and really looked after us while we were there. It was fabulous that he was able connect our favorite beer keg to the kegorator in the bar.Thanks again for sharing a great property. It was one of our best girls trips yet. Regards, Tammy
