Fort Lauderdale house description

'This was outstanding'
It will be impossible to say enough or put into words what a great place this is!
Kathy has created a home that is not only equipped beautifully but it's also such a wonderful warm fun experience. The pictures do not do it justice. You can rent a place beautifully decorated but it's rare to find a rental that gives such a great positive vibe and is so delightful to occupy.
We did not want to leave. There are tiny joys and surprises around every corner of the house. It's a photographers dream and a traveler's delight. We give this 10 stars and our big hug to Kathy.
Clean, quiet, convenient, beautiful, fascinating...and sooo charming!
We hope we'll be lucky enough to stay here again. Don't pass up the opportunity to stay here!

                            "This was outstanding" It will be impossible to say enough or put into words what a great place this is! Kathy has created a home that is not only equipped beautifully but it's also such a wonderful warm fun experience. The pictures do not do it justice. You can rent a place beautifully decorated but it's rare to find a rental that gives such a great positive vibe and is so delightful to occupy. We did not want to leave. There are tiny joys and surprises around every corner of the house. It's a photographers dream and a traveler's delight. We give this 10 stars and our big hug to Kathy. Clean, quiet, convenient, beautiful, fascinating...and sooo charming! We hope we'll be lucky enough to stay here again. Don't pass up the opportunity to stay here! More Review Details

                            I had to go to Ft Lauderdale unexpectedly on business and was referred to Kathy's place through an ex pat from New York City. It was without any expectations that I arrived. I was greeted warmly by the owner Kathy and could not have been made more to feel at home, in her home. The physical charms of the property are well evidenced by the photos included in the web site but for me the best thing was to be able to sit, after a business day, by the canal. It was like having your very own wildlife preserve right there. Manatee birds and yes an occasional lizard wandered by. With a good cup of tea to smooth out the worries of the day i was able to regroup. Night time I was able to relax with a large screen cable tv or go to eat at the many restaurants nearby. Kathy was always available for questions and suggestions. I hate to just "pop in" but Kathy was ready and my stay was great

                            Recommended for: Pet owners, romantic getaway, age 55+, people with disabilities, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                            OUR STAY WAS EXCELLENT. THE CHARMS OF OLD FORT LAUDERDALE ARE EVIDENT IN THE PROPERTY, WITH A CANAL AND VERDANT SURROUNDINGS. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE ACCOMMODATIONS ARE TOPS - CLEAN, MODERN AND SPACIOUS. THE KITCHEN IS FULLY EQUIPPED AND THERE IS EVEN CABLE TELEVISION. WE ACTUALLY WERE SO COMFORTABLE THAT WE SPENT A COUPLE OF EVENINGS EATING IN AND WATCHING FILM. WE ARE GOLFERS AND THE OWNER, KATHY NALVEN, IS AS WELL. SHE WAS GREAT IN STEERING US TO THE BEST CORSES AND TO THE BEST RESTAURANTS AS WELL. BY THE TIME WE LEFT WE FELT LIKE FAMILY AND LOOK FORWARD TO RETURNING FOR A LONGER VISIT.

                          Why the Owner Chose Fort Lauderdale:
                          This area of Fort Lauderdale remains untouched by development, yet it is central to everything. It is a pocket of land surrounded by inland canals and waterways with mature oak and palm trees. There are manatee in the canal, beautiful and magnificent water fowl and wading birds. Giant woodpeckers and multiple species of South Florida birds. A completely private pool with sitting areas on the canal.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Filled with unusual art and antiques yet comfortable and versatile. No matter where you sit or which way you turn you will be looking at nature in full bloom. The house is wide open and airy. Safe and secure yet windows on the tropical world of South Florida.
