Great House! Great Location! Private Courtyard Pool on Canal


Property Details

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%

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house has everything, a private pool, a deck on the canal all in a tropical garden setting. A perfect and quiet retreat yet you're in the heart of Fort Lauderdale action. The management was accommodating and provided everything we needed. Great value considering all that this house offers. I highly recommend this home! You won't be disappointed. See you next year!

Awesome House - Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second year here and it feels so much like home. I just love it.

Well located, and central to all the shopping anyone would need, and yet this home is well situated on a quiet cul-de-sac. Within minutes you're anywhere you need to be in Ft Lauderdale or Wilton Manors.

I think what I like most about this place is the beautiful pool and the seclusion of the walled garden. There's so many outdoor places to sit and enjoy, either in the sun or the shade. With lots of lush tropical foliage on the property yet nothing is ever too shaded.

The kitchen is well designed and a real treat to work in - it's perfect for an individual, a couple or a family. No one will ever be in the way of one another.

And Janet, the Property Manager, is so hospitable; she was able to offer lots of tips on places in the neighbourhood, restaurants and specialty stores.

I just can't wait to come back!

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic place for great relaxation. This place is perfect if you are looking for a quiet place in a well maintained area. There are no surprises in this beautiful house. All that you need is there. Internet, tv, dvd etc. We even had access to long distance phone Canada...amazing. We felt right at home and I must say that I envied the owners of having such a nice place. We are lucky that we had the chance to experience this incredible haven. Being not far from downtown Fort Lauderdale ( the beaches are 10 mins away ) and in the middle of all the shopping and the restaurants but in a nice resident area,it was perfect. This being about my 20th time in Lauderdale, I must say that this time was the best we experienced. What you see on the photos is exactly what you get....except that the picture of the pool is even nicer when you get there because they have put marble all around the makes it really nice and is that nice. In your back yard, you are on the canal where you can see boats go by. You can catch the last rays on the deck....sunset and all....enchanting! The rooms are nicely decorated with comfortable beds. Plenty of linnen and towels for you to use. They even have washer and dryer with everything you need.It shows that they are proud of their place and it also shows that they want you to enjoy your stay. The manager (Janet) is but a phone call away if you need anything and is quick to give you what you questions asked. She is very reliable and respect your privacy by letting you know if or when she will come by....only if you need her for something...You feel like you own the place.....for a few days at least. I do not have one bad thing to say about this place...I really don't....My only concern is that sooner or later people will find this gem and it will be harder to have a reservation because we will definitely be back!

You will not regret your stay....with a pool in the backyard completely surrounded by a wall....really private!

Hope you will enjoy it like we did....
