About the owner: I have lived in South Florida with my family for over 9 years. We've enjoyed the abundant wildlife and multiple attractions of the area. When we went on family vacations we often rented lovely homes through HomeAway and VRBO, so now that most of my children have left for college I decided to set up my own vacation rental and enjoy my time providing an inviting place for vacationers to stay. It was fun to find the perfect vacation house and to furnish it with attractive and comfortable furniture. I love the win-win concept of these types of rentals- both the guests and owners benefit. The guest spends less money than on a hotel, but gets far more privacy and amenities. The owner gets to have a personal touch with her rental home and maintain a high standard for guests.
I look forward to renting to both my fellow Americans and guests from abroad. My approach to assisting clients in meeting their needs is shaped by my unique background of having lived in multiple countries. Having lived in 3 different countries in Europe for over 13 years has shaped my approach in assisting guests in meeting their needs.This helped me understand the unique difficulties one faces when visiting a new place. I am easily available for questions during a guest’s visit, whether by email, text or phone. I will also give guests an introductory tour of the area if they wish!
Why the Owner Chose Oakland Park: South Florida is a wonderful place to live and visit. Ft. Lauderdale is a vibrant city with abundant restaurants, shopping and beautiful beaches. The house itself impressed me as the perfect place to stay while visiting the area. It has been well maintained and has been tastefully updated. The open concept design is perfect for a family or friends on vacation. The heated pool is in new condition, and has underwater lights for night enjoyment. It also has a child safety fence available on request. The bedrooms are large with plenty of storage. I knew the luxurious bathrooms would be inviting to guests. The quiet mid-century neighborhood is a quiet, friendly oasis in the midst of the vibrant city and all its offerings.
