Great first vacation in Florida
Great first vacation in Florida
Our family (three children) had a great two week stay in the house. Our youngest loved the pirate room. The house was also big enough for us all to have some privacy. We spent much more time 'at home' by the pool than originally planned and we also used the outdoor grill for BBQs in the evenings. This made it a very relaxing vacation. When we first arrived we got a bit unsure about the neighborhood. Some houses are very well kept and some not so … This house and the back yard was great and we felt safe all the time. The location is good when you have a car. Easy access to major highways. Anthony made the rental process very easy and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in Ft. Lauderdale.

For my first time doing the vaca rental thing, I could not have asked for a more amazing experience! The house was so awesome we spent a bulk of the vacation in the pool or fishing off the dock. The house was very family friendly and made our first family trip (with two young, active boys) very easy. Thanks for everything Anthony.

Great Vacation Home
Great Vacation Home
My husband, 6 year old son and I had a wonderful vacation week in this perfect vacation home. We spend time poolside daily. My son loved the pirate themed room, but spent most evenings in the 2nd bedroom to watch tv before going to bed. The house is exactly as shown in the photos. We arrived early and everything was set up so that even though the manager was unable to meet us on arrival, we were able to let ourselves in. We found everything we needed on our own, but I knew the owner and his assistant were a phone call/test/or email away if we needed anything. Thanks for a wonderful 40th birthday trip. Caroline

House was wonderful. House could have been cleaner, had to wash all the sheets and there were stains on the comforters. But all-in-all was a great house and would definately stay there again.

Great stay at Sailor's Return
Great stay at Sailor's Return
Great property, house was exactly as advertised and the photos do indeed do it justice. Wonderful pool and patio - spent much more time at both than originally planned, grilling out and relaxing. Anthony was great with coordination, checking it, offering a late check-out since our flight didn't leave until late afternoon, etc. House has all of the amenities that you would need, including pool/beach toys, chairs, etc. En suite master bath is a little cramped but not a big deal with the other bathroom just right outside the room to use. House is a little out of the way from beaches, downtown Fort Lauderdale, etc. but not a problem with a car - definitely would not stay here without one though. Neighborhood seemed to be a mix - some with a lot of pride in their homes, some with trash on their lawns and little maintenance done, but overall felt safe and comfortable. Only word of caution - just like in the photos, the pool is literally right outside the kids' bedroom (pirate bed) external doors and the living room external doors, made us a little nervous with a 3 and 1 year old. We checked with Anthony first and just moved the large futon in the bedroom to block the door, and pushed the living room sectional back a bit to block that door, and felt comfortable - just used the master bedroom door to the patio/pool then to get in and out, worked well.

The owner and house were everything I had hoped for (from the writeup & pics). I enjoyed the use of the home very much, very relaxing, owner very available for whatever need. Home was clean, very tastefully decorated. Beds comfortable, pool enjoyable. If there is anything additional I would have wished for it would have been to have coffee, a bar of soap, and perhaps a fruit or such for those that arrive late the evening before. There is not much in the immediate area for decent groceries or restaurants. If you didn't know the area that well, these few items would be of tremendous help. All in all, a great stay.

Overall, house is nice and pictures are largely reflective of the property. Generally well decorated and well kept. Kids liked the pirate themed room. Layout gives everyone enough room and privacy. Outdoor space is nice and very usable, overlooks a canal with some large boats across the way. Pool is good sized and gets good sun but was too cold to use as temperatures were in the low 70s most of our stay. As it got closer to 80s or higher, the water was fine. Generally the area is very quiet. As another reviewer mentioned, it is not a luxury area but the street itself is fine. Some of the areas closer to the highway are less desirable. Laundry room is outside of the main house right off of the kitchen. Location is good with a car with accessibility to major highways. Means everything is roughly 10-15 minutes by car. Worked well for us but take a look at the map. The owner was very responsive and flexible around our travel schedule based on unexpected snow in Boston. Security deposit returned in a matter of days. No complaints and would return.

Our family stayed in Anthony's vacation home for nearly two weeks, and we were very happy with the accommodations. The home is beautifully decorated and very clean. It was quite comfortable for our family of six, and the children loved the pool and intercoastal canal out back (along with kayak and canoe.) Anthony made the rental process very simple, and was pleasant to do business with. We will definitely consider this home again for our future vacations to the Fort Lauderdale area. We loved it!
