  • Perfect for large family

    "The house worked out perfectly for us. Everyone was comfortable, from the three year old to the 75 year old. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen and laundry were easy to use, it was great to have the beach towels and umbrella, and kayaks. We would stay there again if we came to the area:)"

  • The best vacation

    "We spent a beautiful month in this nice cottage. The location is excellent, only a few steps to the beach. The cottage is very cozy and very well equipped. It was very nice to see personal greeting with wine and fresh fruit from Regina when we arrived. We hope to return in the future, hopefully next year. Dear Regina, Michael and Brian, thank you very much."

  • Amazing Condo with the best views and amenities for the perfect dream vacation

    "Just had the greatest vacation ever. This condo has the most amazing direct ocean views in a resort that has it all. This condo is spacious and directly on the water with magnificent views from every room. The unit is well maintained and both bedrooms are huge with their own private bath. One bedroom is directly on the ocean with floor to ceiling windows that will take you breathe away as you look out over the most beautiful beach. The other bedroom is on the opposite side of the unit for privacy but has amazing southeast views of the ocean and a very large balcony for dinner at night or a drink to relax before going to bed for the night. The kitchen is very well equipped and updated as is the furniture in the unit. Two huge king size beds make for a very comfortable and relaxing sleep while listening to the surf. A great pool and Tiki hut with a very friendly staff are two additional amenities to the most fabulous beach in South Florida. This condo is very close to the airport as well as all the great restaurants and night life Fort Lauderdale has to offer. Diane made our vacation dreams come true and I can't wait to go back next year. Thanks Diane"

  • Great house, great location, great service!

    "I was here with a group of guys for a getaway weekend. The house was perfect. Pool, on the waterway, spacious, centrally located. Even better than that was the service we got with Mike and his team! He helped setup shuttle services, excursions, answered any and all questions. Really went out of his way to make us have a great weekend. Highly recommended. Thanks again, we will definitely be back! -Mike"

Things to Do in Fort Lauderdale

- Bonnet House: In 1920, Chicago-born artist Frederic Clay Barlett created Bonnet House on land given to him and his second wife Helen Louise Birch by her father, Hugh Taylor Birch. For more than 70 years the families lived on the property, developing the 35 acres into what it is today. Now the house serves as a museum dedicated to historic and environmental preservation as well as creative expression. The main house is filled with a unique collection of art and personal artifacts from the families, while the gardends create a lovely tropical oasis and habitat for local wildlife.

- Museum of Discovery and Science: Head to the Museum of Discovery and Science, one of the largest museums of its kind in Florida, for a day of fun and adventure. An IMAX theater provides a 3-D look at science, and ecoscapes allow you to experience a simulated ride to Mars or a MaxFlight airplane. Peruse the extensive collection of Floridian animal species on display and see animal-centered demonstrations. While you're here, take a ride on an Everglades airboat adventure, dig for fossils, walk under a 12-foot-tall imperial mammoth and watch North American river otters play.

- International Swimming Hall of Fame: If you enjoy all things water sport-related, you'll love a trip to the International Swimming Hall of Fame and Museum. Learn more about famous moments in swimming history, the evolution of swimwear and see memorabilia belonging to people who've excelled in aquatics. The museum is dedicated to the memory and recognition of famous swimmers (both solo and synchronized), divers, water polo players and other people involved with aquatics.

- Hugh Taylor Birch State Park: Be sure to enjoy the outdoors while in Fort Lauderdale. An awesome place to do so is at the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Take an exhilarating hike along the trails or rent a canoe and paddle along a mile-long freshwater lagoon. Pack a picnic lunch to enjoy as you experience the natural scenery, then fish off the sea wall or head out on a bike ride along the paved park road. You can also learn more about the area's natural and cultural history at the Terramar Visitor Center. Every Friday at 10:30 a.m., rangers offer guided park tours and feature themes like mangrove, tropical hardwood hammock, coastal dune lake and beach habitat. Guided segway tours are also available as well as kayak, bike and skate rentals.

Shopping and Dining in Fort Lauderdale

- Las Olas Boulevard: For a premier shopping experience in Fort Lauderdale, head to Las Olas Boulevard. Along the commercial stretch of the street you'll find a wonderful array of stores and boutiques as well as art galleries. This part of the boulevard is considered the riverfront area of downtown Fort Lauderdale, and the name las olas means "the waves" in Spanish. You'll certainly be able to spend plenty of time window shopping here and pick up fun souvenirs, then stop into a local eatery to refuel and enjoy a delicious meal as you discuss your favorite parts of your trip so far.

- Chima: Enjoy a Brazilian dining experience at Chima, named after a traditional drink of Rio Grande do Sul. Gauchos (meat waiters) roam the dining room floors offering churrasco of more than 14 different meats on huge skewers ranging from steak, lamb, chicken, fish and sausage. Brazilian and American flavors are combined here, and the salad bar is excellent.

- Laffing Matterz: Enjoy a meal with a side of side-splitting laughter at Laffing Matterz dinner theater. It's a live, original musical comedy spoofing current events and pop culture. Choose from a variety of delicious menu items like calamari, chicken, beef tenderloin, butternut squash ravioli and salmon, then sit back and enjoy the hilarious show that was named "best dinner theatre" by the Broward/Palm Beach New Times twice.
