"The boathouse was everything we hoped it would be and more. Brian was a pleasure to communicate with and Bill was great. Bill met us at the house even after our plane was delayed a couple of hours. He showed us around and told us to make ourselves at home.
This house had everything we needed and even more. I was gone most of the day, but my husband was there all day and he would relax on the dock fishing a little and watching the boats go down the river. It was so nice and relaxing.
We were only about 10 minutes from the port where my meetings were and about the same to Los Olas shopping district.
The only kinda sort of thing we had problems with was the bed was a little hard for our taste. If you like a firm mattress, then you'll love it.
I can't recommend this rental enough. I will definitely refer my travel clients to the boathouse."

"Upon arrival the check-in clerk advised us that the swimming pool and lazy river were both closed for renovations, and had been for 7 days. As this was the main reason for booking this hotel, we were shocked to learn this only at that moment, and were extremely disappointed. The clerk advised us that the owner had been notified. Once contacted, the owner (Larry) responded that he was never informed. Who can you believe? We felt deceived and our mini-vacation wrecked. We received no compensation, not even an apology from the owner or the hotel for our disappointment.
The hotel and room were great, the restaurant veranda and food wonderful, the staff helpful, and it is truly beachfront, beating other hotels on the FLL strip."

"This is my second year here and it feels so much like home. I just love it.
Well located, and central to all the shopping anyone would need, and yet this home is well situated on a quiet cul-de-sac. Within minutes you're anywhere you need to be in Ft Lauderdale or Wilton Manors.
I think what I like most about this place is the beautiful pool and the seclusion of the walled garden. There's so many outdoor places to sit and enjoy, either in the sun or the shade. With lots of lush tropical foliage on the property yet nothing is ever too shaded.
The kitchen is well designed and a real treat to work in - it's perfect for an individual, a couple or a family. No one will ever be in the way of one another.
And Janet, the Property Manager, is so hospitable; she was able to offer lots of tips on places in the neighbourhood, restaurants and specialty stores.
I just can't wait to come back!"

Clean, spacious house in attractive residential neighborhood close to amenities.
"Spotlessly clean, spacious house in a nice quiet location in an attractive, established residential neighborhood but only a 10 minute drive from all the hotspots in downtown Fort Lauderdale and 15 minutes from Fort Lauderdale public beaches, although there are other beaches closer which are just as nice and less crowded. The back yard has a great pool and lounging area complete with lots of palm trees and a resident iguana!"
