                            This house suited our family well. We had both parts of the house and so plenty of room for the family, which had gathered for a wedding. The view and location were superb - near to the beach (a bit of a walk, but a very short drive) and we loved watching the boats go by on the Intracoastal. The location was north of the center of Ft. Lauderdale beach and it was easy to get around. The beds were very comfortable, the great room in big house was set up very nicely – easy for lots of people to interact, eat together, relax - and the place was well-stocked. One of the families had a baby and the manager kindly rented a new crib for us. Only drawback was that the bathrooms and kitchens were a bit "tired". One of the showers needed to be repaired and two of the toilets had problems (one did not flush properly; the other was constantly running), but on the good side the manager responded quickly to any issues. They were wonderful to work with and I appreciated all that they did.

                            Owner response: We always strive to make maintenance a top priority .Glad we could deal with these minor issues.

                            Our group stayed at the house for an extended weekend (Thurs-Sun) and it was even better than expected. The views from the back deck are unbelievable and the pool sits right on the inter coastal. The house was immaculate when we arrived and was able to fit 14 people very comfortably. I would recommend this house as a week/weekend getaway to anyone looking to get away for a relaxing, low key weekend. It truly made for an unforgettable trip and I would come back to stay again for sure at some point. Two thumbs up!

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                            We went down on a guys trip. The house had plenty of space for us. The location is great! You can just spend the days outside by the pool relaxing and watching the boats go by. The house is close to restaurants and beaches. Very easy to get around from this location. We would definitely go back!

                            Plassen var bare helt fantastisk. Beliggenheten helt ved vannkanten der båter i alle størrelser kjørte forbi, gjorde dette til en helt utrolig og flott opplevelse. Huset var slitt men rent. Uteplassen var bare helt utrolig flott. Det som barna gledet seg over alle mest var at bassenget som var avbildet, var egentlig mye større enn forventingene. Det ser lite ut på bildene. Eigeren var innom og hilste på oss og kom med mange gode råd om det rike dyrelivet rundt huset, og om aktiviteter i området rundt Fort Lauderdale som var kjempenyttige. Vi besøkte blandt annet Everglades Holliday Park etter eigerens anbefalinger der vi faktisk såg mange alligatorer under båtturen. Kan sterkt anbefales. Vi besøkte også Golden Coral, en restaurant med bufè der vi kunne spise så mye vi ville. Masse god mat. Publix i nærheten ble en favoritt matvare butikk. Vi var også på Fort Lauderdale Beach rett over veien fra der huset er. Vi skulle så gjerne hatt så mye lengre tid i dette området, men det var siste stopp på vår 3 uker lange reise. Denne plassen kommer vi til å anbefale til våre venner. Har allerede lagt ut linken til huset på Facebook. Med vennlig hillsen 3 fornødde familier fra Norge

                            Owner response: Engish Translation The space was just amazing. The location entirely on the waterfront where boats of all sizes drove past, made this an amazing and wonderful experience. The house was clean. The patio was just incredibly nice. The kids enjoyed the most was that all the pool which was pictured, was actually much larger than expectations. It looks small in the pictures. Jeff the owner stopped and greeted us and made lots of good advice about the wildlife around the house, and about activities in the area around Fort Lauderdale was helpful. We visited among other Everglades Holliday Park's own recommendations for where we actually saw many alligators during the boat ride. Can highly recommended. We also visited the Golden Coral Restaurant where we could eat as much as we wanted. Lots of good food. Publix nearby was a favorite grocery store. We were also on Fort Lauderdale Beach just across the road from where the house is. We were so happy to have had so much more time in this area, but it was the last stop on our 3 week journey. This place we will recommend to our friends. Having already posted the link to the house on Facebook. Yours hillsen 3 fornødde families from Norway

                            We have stayed with my family in this AMAZING vacation house, which was by far, the BEST we have ever stayed at. The owners were so friendly and nice!!! The house was perfectly located, cleaned and equipped. We had more things than we needed!! The beach is just 4 blocks and the nighborhood is really quiet. We highly recommend this house since it has not a single drawback. Believe me! It is the best house one can ever dream of!!

                            My family just spent a week at this property and loved every minute of it! Lynn Smith, Nilsen Realty, was great to work with - she was extremely professional, knowledgeable and responsive and we're already considering booking another week at this property next year. There were 14 of us and there were beds for everyone and plenty of room to spread out if you wanted privacy. We loved the pool on the Intercoastal and the beautiful beach was within walking distance. Can't wait to go back!

                            Larry (Marblehead, Ma) We had a group of 10 in the family .Location was perfect and the accommodations were roomy. The lighting and kitchens were recently updated .New TVs in the two main living rooms.The parade of huge yachts went on all day and was really astounding.The property is on a point lot surrounded by water on all sides just across from the great beach. The manager /Realtor Lynn was attentive to our needs . We look orward to rentig again next year. I highly recommend this classic Florida property for a great family vacation at a very good priice .

                            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!
