Sailboat Bend bungalow description

Our lushly landscaped double lot, private compound consists of two historic bungalows. This listing is about one of the 1912 bungalows. The bungalow has been lovingly renovated while keeping its old Florida style. Nestled just a short walk from downtown and less than 2 miles to Fort Lauderdale beach, this truly is a little piece of paradise. We are surrounded by Old Florida vegetation, which include live oaks, loads of palm trees, an avocado tree, and even an orange tree is on this spacious double lot property.

We have available a Key West Style bungalow for temporary rental. The bungalow has a lovely one bedroom, with a separate living room, and full kitchen with granite counter top. Our bathroom is stocked with new towels and linens. In our Angelfish cottage,we just purchased a brand new king size bed for your comfort. Our stylish Urban Outfitter couch converts into a full size futon bed. This cottage can sleep up to 4 people. In addition, we have a screened in front porch and a lovely outdoor patio with patio furniture and access to a gas grill.

We are close to everything!!! Walking distance from the River Art Walk, Performing Art Center, restaurants, bars and cafes. We are minutes away from the beach and intercostal, where you can hop onto the water taxi and find your way around on a boat. We are just about 15 minutes away from the Fort Lauderdale airport. We live in a historic neighborhood; coincidentally we are located where the first fort was built. We are also within a few blocks to public transit and less than a mile to Tri Rail, which is our local train that takes you from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami or West Palm Beach.
What makes our place unique, it’s just so charming!! We love to have people feel at home in a tranquil space. Relish in this one of a kind home with a minimalist style décor but with all the modernized comforts of home. This is truly an amazing spot that gives you the feeling of living the simple life.

              My historic bungalow is centrally located within walking distances to many restaurants and local attractions. We are within a few minutes ride to our local beautiful beach in Fort Lauderdale and airport. Our city provides Broward Bcycle rentals throughout the city or hop on our local water taxi to get you around Ft. Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale is sometimes known as the 'Venice of America' because of its expansive and intricate canal system. We are a few blocks away from the New River, where you may enjoy cruises, kayaking, water paddling or just relax at any of the restaurants that are situated right by the river.

               

              Owner info

              About the owner: I am not a native Floridian but grew up in Fort Lauderdale and have called it home since 1972. I still love this city for all the wonderful things it has to offer. I love the beach and the weather. Living in the tropics and close to the beautiful white sands of Fort Lauderdale beach is a real blessing. I have set roots here and see myself as a part of the natural landscape of this amazing eco system. Many visitors, do not venture out into the pristine national parks in the Everglades but I highly recommend visiting this unique area which is so close by but far away enough to enjoy the wilderness.

              Why the Owner Chose Sailboat Bend:
              Location, location, location. I love this historic neighborhood nestled in a residential area but within walking distances to theatre, museums, beach, airport, shopping shops/mall,restaurants,bars,Port Everglades, and any boating sports.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
              This cottage was built in a simpler time, 1912!! It is made of Dade County Pine. The layout is simply but spacious, with a screened in porch and plenty of windows to let the breeze come in every room. Although, it has been completely renovated with new electric wiring, plumbing, central air conditioning and heating, and new kitchen. We have attempted to keep the integrity of the bungalow while bringing the comfort of today.
