  • Slice of Paradise

    "Just spent a glorious 5 days enjoying this Poinsietta Heights home - was so sorry to have to leave. Could have easily spent a few more weeks lounging by the pool! Our stay was delightful, from the spacious and tastefully decorated house to the excellent location in close proximity to everything we needed. The beach really is just a jaunt away, but we mostly stayed poolside and relaxed in the beautiful Florida sunshine. Thoroughly enjoyed the convenience of the internet connection, the music hook ups (both indoor and outdoor) and the comprehensive kitchen and BBQ features. Just writing this is making me miss it and want to go back... Would return to this slice of paradise in a heartbeat!"

  • A little piece of paradise

    "We stayed at the casa luna for a full 3 weeks and we couldn't expect anything better. The property is really clean as the housekeeper does an AMAZING job. The owner is very responsive and the neighborhood is really friendly and fun to walk around. It is located close to the beach, shopping, dining, etc...The house itself is great as well as the backyard. There is a really nice pool and spa that allows you to lounge in the sun. We strongly recommend this property to anyone that wants to enjoy their vacation in Fort Lauderdale."

    "We LOVED our week long stay at this property. The whole process of payment/agreement/check-in/check-out went very smooth, no problems at all. The house is tastefully decorated with nice, simple stuff. We didn't ever feel like our almost 2 year old was going to hurt himself or break anything- what a relief! Loved the pool and were so thankful for the heater!! Great backyard in general, tons of privacy. Publix is very much so within walking distance which was great considering we cooked almost every meal at the house! Dishwasher in the house would've been a little more convenient if it had detergent to use with it-eh, we survived, but we hand washed a lot more dishes than we cared to. The tiny ants on the kitchen counter were a total turn-off, but we "managed" them with the bug spray in the cupboard. Let's just say we definitely kept all of our food in the refrigerator so that we didn't have to worry about ants ruining it :( House does seem to be in a lower end of town but we walked the streets a lot and never felt in danger or worried, so I thought it was just fine! Landscaping in the backyard could probably use some thinning out, seemed a little overgrown, but yet we did like the privacy. Wouldn't want to lose the privacy if the trees & bushes were trimmed. We appreciated the beach toys! Walk-in closet in back bedroom definitely needs a light, or maybe we just couldn't find it. Beds are SQUEAKY!!! I think you just need to cut the cardboard out of the boxspring to solve that problem :) I wouldn't say this property is a 5 star resort, but we aren't really high maintenance people, so we're good at making do with what we have :) we had a GREAT time and despite my suggestions for improvement, we would re-visit this property, no doubt."

Poinsettia Heights Travel Tips

The Peaceful Side of Florida at Poinsettia Heights Vacation Rentals

The peaceful and elegant appearance of the Poinsettia Heights neighborhood is a welcome respite for any winter-weary traveler. Located in the northeast side of Fort Lauderdale, it is rather detached from the usual tourist hustle and bustle in the rest of the city. That serenity accentuates the atmosphere of Poinsettia Heightsvacation rentals that boast the personal space lacking in surrounding hotels and resorts. On site are pools, lush gardens and outdoor amenities, with natural stores like Whole Foods and Publix mere blocks away. The vacation rental perks and tranquility of the area makes this side of Fort Lauderdale a southern Eden.

Sights of Natural Beauty Encompass Poinsettia Heights

Within the neighborhood is the strip of water known as Lake Meva. Outside of the fishing and bird watching, visitors can cruise the lake on paddle boats, which are offered at some vacation rentals and Poinsettia Heights condos along the shores. Just to the east, visitors can do the same thing, along with canoeing at the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Having the same refreshing qualities of Central Park, this 180 acre nature getaway features a freshwater lagoon and is great for hiking, biking and taking in the area's unique wildlife and vegetation.

Going Out in Fort Lauderdale

Bordering the east side of Poinsettia Heights is the commercial corridor of US-1, with popular restaurants and watering holes like Sublime and Zona Fresca right around the corner. In addition, only few minutes northeast is the notorious alternative thoroughfare of Wilton Drive. From sushi to martinis, this party drag has a little something for everyone with nightclubs booming until early morning. The vacation rentals and various Fort Lauderdale beach rentals let you relax in solitude, while painting one of Florida's most happening cities red.
