Home away from home
Home away from home
My husband, brother-in-law, cousin and two sons recently took a football trip to Miani and had the pleasure of staying at this house. As soon as they arrived my son proclaimed that he loved it and wanted to live there forever. The house was large enough to accommodate a family of 5, comfortably, and had all the amenities of a hotel and them some. Staying at a house like this makes vacation so much more delightful then staying at a hotel. It was all the extra little things (ie. fishing pole, grill, wifi, proximity to entertainment, beaches & shopping) that made the stay so wonderful. The pool and canal were just the icing on the cake. I hope this house is available the next time we plan on traveling to Ft. Lauderdale because I would definetly stay there again.

Very Nice Place
Just wanted to thank you for the rental in Ft. Lauderdale, it was a very nice place. I only have two very minor issues that I just want to bring to your attention. We had a great time and really enjoyed staying at the house, the pool was clean and your house was very accommodating, thank you again. We will definitely use your place again the next visit south!

Place to sleep
Place to sleep
We, a swiss family of 5, stayed 3 days. The house was smaller than expected (it looks greater on the pictures) and in average condition. For our expectation it could be in better shape (e.g. many lamps bulbs did not work, no spare parts, color of walls where fading), but we where glad to stay there. However, the house was well equipped, we found everything we needed. It is a nice and quite area, no traffic. The owner was very economical with information. The only thing we got where the place and code of the house and only after several callings and very late. No other information (like check in / check out time, contact person, check out conditions, etc)

Owner response: I am sorry to receive this rating but my housing keeping company the owner died unexpectantly the week of there visit. I apologize for his somewhat less than perfect stay. However, during his stay I received no communications from him informing me of any issues with the unit; if I had received any communication I would have addressed those concerns immediately.
It was a comfortable spot.It was very quiet with great neighborA.D. The fishing was wonderful.I will recommend this house to all.

We had a very nice time. When we first arrived there were other people in our part of the house, we took the smaller part for the two days they were there then moved to the bigger part of the house. Pool was wonderful, hot tub didn't seem to work all the time. We took our two puppies with us and there is not much actual "ground" in the backyard it is mostly concrete but we dealt with that. Propery was very clean, needs a little TLC, beds in front half of house were hard and not very comfortable. The fact we had a grill to use was very helpful, and there were plenty of chairs and such to set on around the pool. We were close to downtown and not far from the beach. Lots of sirens in this area. We did find a pizza place that had excellent pizza and subs and they did deliver to this residence.. they were awesome! All in all it was a nice relaxing trip and we would definately stay here again if in this area. The neighbors next door were exceptionally nice and helpful.
