A perfect vacation villa
A perfect vacation villa
We thought the villa was great in every way! The location by the canal was perfect and so beatiful.It was plenty of room at the villa for us 13 persons, we didn´t miss anything and the service and response from the owner was great when we had questions. Thanks for a perfect holiday and we hope to be back soon :)

Owner response: Its Wonderful that you enjoyed your week in the sun.We are vacation pros.We can provide suggestions for the best restaurants in Lauderdale.We tell you about all the points of interest.Secret tips that will make the vacation a life long experience
We had the misfortune of arriving in Fort Lauderdale on the coldest day in quite some time. But that was our only problem with our stay. The home is just as advertised; a wonderful throwback to Florida chic of the 60s. We ate dinner at the house every night and just watched the yachts float by. Once the weather improved, the pool was a blast. But our biggest thrill was seeing the manatee! We were told we'd see them, but we really didn't believe it. We had a fantastic time and we hope to be back next year!

Owner response: Thanks for your kind words .We often see Manatee at the property during winter months ..
Thank you Lynn for sharing this beautiful property with our group. The charm of this Old World Floridian home fit our party of 8 to a tea. The house was extremely comfortable and appointed very nicely with all the comforts of home inside and out. The large patio right on the intracoastal could not be any better for relaxing and enjoying the spectacular parade of yachts as they glide by. This home was minutes from everything Ft lauderdale had to do and yet offers quiet and tranquil seclusion just off of A1A. We hope to return soon. Warmest regards, The Scotts from Missouri

Perfect location .... poor maintenance
Perfect location .... poor maintenance
The booking activity was carried out in a professional manner. The house consists of two independent units connected to the pool area, this allows good privacy for two families, but allows you to live together in common parts (patio and pool). Overall, the vote is positive. Positive factors: . Two separate and independent units (each unit ideal for 5/6 people) . large interior spaces . privacy . parking for 4 cars . spacious pool . 2 patio . great location at the intersection of two channels . not far from the city center Negative factors: . very poor maintenance . housekeeping needs to improve . 1 bathroom with no hot water . the air conditioning system is old . the house needs a good global restructuring We stayed in 9 people. We were fine and we have a pleasant memory.

Owner response: Glad you enjoyed the stay..When you arrived you were asked to contact us about any problems .We have repair folks on 24hour call.No one complained about anything until days before you left ..The hot water problem was a simple valve repair done in 5 minutes.We attended to the a/c issue one unit was low on freion .Im glad your enjoyed the wonderful location.Next time please read our welcome letter so we may attend to minor complaints immediately.
Our family had 14 people in our party and this house accommodated all of them with beds. I found the pictures for this listing very helpful. The place was nice and clean when we got there. The pool and spa wasn't quite "heated" as we would like it to be and the website needs to be updated as far as identifying it via google maps. However, the property manager was very helpful in providing the actual location for verification and in answering our questions throughout the rental process. We booked this property in July and happen to be in town a month later. The property manager was accommodating in letting us take a look at the place while we were there. As far as activites, there was a nice beach park located within walking distance that we went to everyday. The property is located within a 5 min drive of some very nice places to eat and hang out. Given the price I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or a relative.

What an amazing place to stay. This double villa was enjoyed by all 15 adult woman. We had a split party of girls for a bachelorette party (one group from the Carolinas and one group from Georgia). The double villas could not have accomodated our party any better. Lynn was a great help when needed. The pool/hot tub/intracoastal views were incomparable. We stayed in Thursday night and enjoyed the pool with awesome views of the intracoastal. Friday night we took the water taxi to China Grill and YoLo (club spot). The water taxi was great and very convenient to the villas. I can't wait to come back again to enjoy this gem in the intracoastal. I honestly can not say enough good things about the double villas and I can't forget about the pet iguanas which made our vacation complete. I would highly recommend this to friends and family. Thanks so much Lynn!

It was A Place to Sleep
It was A Place to Sleep
The location is accurate regarding its location. Th eproperty is on the coner of the Intercostal.When we arrived the AIr was not working in one unit when we called Lynn at 10am about it we were assured someone would come out and check on it. it took them all day 6pm to come out. The floors were full of dust bunnies near the sliding door. We found bugs in kitchen. The outside furnitre is moldy and in need of repair. The grills did not have propane when we went ot grill. Had to call main agian to have them fill them. The TV/Cable did not work form day one in severval of rooms. Maint was to make calls and bring new batteries and failed to do so. Pool became green within four days of our stay. When we texted Lynn she asked us to put shock or sometime of chemical in the pool which was in a Lg plastic tea bottle. When pool man came out he was highy upset and told us we could not use the pool for the rest of our visit due to chemicals he had put into pool. We had 4 kids with us and they were upset they could not use pool.Lynn texted us that we had done something wrong to pool. All we did was turn fountan on and pool light. We were not told WE had to do pool maint. while at our stay at villa. It was not in our welcome letter or booklet they gave us in the villa about pool maint., The two maint guys never told us any info about pool care. At times they were sharp and disrespectful. I spent alot of time on the phone with Lynn then i feel i should have, I would not recommend this property to others. Beds were not comfy. Maint of house was rough Pealing ceiling,rotton doors, windows that dont stay closed, bathroom windows broken and dusty in some areas. there were wood shaving on our entertainment center in main living room. Parking was ok. Be aware of lizards there are a ton of them outside. I was upset to see the contition of the property due to the fact i had spent so much money reserving so far in advance and there was no change of a refund. Pictures are accurate however its what you dont see in the pictures you have to worry about. Lynn was helpful answering my questions before my stay and when i got into town.

Owner response: The villa is a place to sleep on a point lot in Ft Lauderdales most upscale neighbourhood.We worked really hard to satisfy your requests without success . The major issue was that the pool was green.Your demands simply could not be met ..We found the main power switch to the pool pump turned of and the pool heater turned on ..We gave instructions not to touch the pool controls.Sadly a member did we the required a $500 repair and a refund to our next guest.It took a week to clean your damage to our pool .We responded to your a/c request .You told the Technician you wanted 50 degree temp.A/c Techs are very busy in the summer he attended to the problem as soon as he could .The service call showed the A/C units working perfectly they cannot go to fifty degrees ..We do not supply batteries for your personal electronicsThe lizards are live at the villa .They are harmless as are the Bahamian curly tails that live in the yard .This is the tropics just off the oceanThe next time you choose a vacation rental please follow instructions and respect an owners property and you are not welcomed back to our villa .Ft Lauderdale beach and the tropics my not be your best vacation choice.Lynn Smith Nielsen Realty
Location & directions was on point, House was clean and in good shape when we arrived. Our first night we ordered food to be delivered and it was great. They supplied Menus and directions to all types of fun spots to visit. We had 10 adults + kids, ages 6 - 13, and we all had a great time. The pool was certainly a winner in all our books. When they were not in the pool they walked to the beach which was not far at all. The view of the canel in back of the house was a great plus, just to sit and watch the boats go by as well as the boat tour we all took while there. It was home away from home and we all enjoyed it more than staying in a a Hotel. We all cooked daily to cut cost and it was great. Everything you needed for home living was there for you, we all rate this vacation as 98%. Thanks to the owner and Lynn Smith Great Job. I want everyone to know that the Team was great as well when called upon to handle a small problem. This house is set up as a duplex style which gives private time for everyone to enjoy their personal time together and alone. A Big Plus (TV's in every room) Great, Great & Great. Again we will add, we had a great time. Just think if you have a 2 family vacation, you still have the Private and Seprated houses to enjoyed. Loved it, Thanks

The family loved the patio kids loved the pool
The whole stay was very nice, but the highlight was the last week in your wonderfull villa. Especially the evenings on the terrace at the intracostal with the whole family were marvellous. Our grandchildren refused to go to the beach, because they liked to play at and in the pool so much. And the elders liked the barbecue very much.
