Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and 3 daughters stayed here for 4 nights. We were excited to escape the Wisconsin winter and this was a great place to stay.

It is located in a nice spot just a block off Las Olas Blvd which makes it super convenient if you want to walk to any bars or restaurants, there are many just a stones throw away. There is also a nice park on the river just 4 blocks away which my kids enjoyed walking to and building fairy houses. :)

Of course the thing they loved the most was the heated pool. It is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation which makes it feel fairly private despite the neighboring properties being so close. There are many lounge chairs, a grill, and a patio table for dining outside. They have a few pool toys like noodles and wake boards which is a nice touch. There is even a large area of sand adjacent to the pool which gave our kids a chance to build sandcastles.

The interior of the home was spacious enough for everyone to spread out. It was very clean. There are flat screen TV's in all of the bedrooms and living room area. They are "smart" TV's so you can even log into your Amazon or Netflix accounts if you need some downtime for the kids to watch movies.

I would say our only disappointment of the home would be the kitchen. It is fairly small and cramped. The amount of silverware was quite light (only 5 forks!) along with a fairly scant selection of dishes and cookware. The pots and pans were also in poor condition......could definitely use some upgrades.

Overall, this was a great place to getaway and entertain the kids. The layout of the home is a bit quirky (my kids counted 7 doors to the outside) but is comfortable and cozy. A nice location close to the beach and local entertainment. Thanks Justice for allowing us to stay at your cottage!

We LOVED this place! We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 10 days. We absolutely LOVED it and will no doubt be choosing this spot again next time we are in town. A few steps away from all the restaurants on Las Olas, a short distance to Fort Lauderdale beach, and an awesome backyard with a beachy-feel of sand, palm trees, and a heated pool, which the kids couldn't keep out of! The most important factor for me when staying somewhere is where we sleep. All rooms and sheets were crisp and clean, showers had great pressure, and the laundry room was quick and easy. The only thing I would complain about if I had to would be the parking when friends come over, since this street is always so busy. You can fit 2 cars in the driveway and 1, maybe 2, in the back yard, but it is a little difficult to park your car in there from the alleyway. Overall, I strongly recommend this spot for family-gatherings or even relaxing vacations for a group of friends. We loved this place. Great impression, we'll be back!

Amazing Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's second time renting this house - we love it and already miss it.

Everything in the house is great - the master suite, the new living room furniture, and best of all, the pool is perfect. We found ourselves in the pool three times a day at least.

Add this to the fact that it's within walking distance to everything on Las Olas, and it's an awesome getaway location.

If we were hard-pressed for any constructive feedback, the kitchen sink (and especially the lack of a garbage disposal) could do for an upgrade, but it definitely works just fine...

We definitely look forward to renting again!

Great Location, Great House, Very Accomodating, Well Appointed--Awesome !!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do justice for this place. Thank you Stephanie for providing such a well appointed house for a guys get a way weekend. Traveling infrom Pittsburgh, Orlando, San Diego, State College-the Pittsburgh Crew LOVED the location and your hospitality. What a great location and centrally located to alot of things to do. Walk to the beach, restaurants, bars or just relax poolside(heated) and cookout.

I am an owner of a few rental homes and appreciate all this house has to offer. Very spacious and there is no problem with comfortably sleeping 8-10 people here. We had 5-7 people and there was still plenty of room. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a clean, well kept location in the Las Olas area.

Great Job on the Renovations!!

An Awesome Place to Stay in Fort Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful! Everything was extremely well-maintained and clean. The rooms were roomy and the house was decorated with a touch of class!! We couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. This house has two master suites! The back yard is a small paradise with the pool, palm trees and huge gas grill for cooking. We did not have to purchase anything but groceries! Thanks for the wonderful memories. We will definitely return someday. Thanks
