  • Girls Getaway

    "You couldn't been the location of the property...it was right on the beach! There was a restaurant and bar on the premises as well as a gift shop. If you wanted to eat at different places, you had to take a taxi because nothing was within walking distance. There was not even a gas station very close. We walked 1 mile one way to a Walgreens to get some snacks. The restaurant and bar were just a little more expensive than what I like to pay, but if you are okay with spending more, you could totally have everything on the property and wouldn't have to go anywhere! We thought our room would be overlooking the ocean based on pictures, but it was on the other side of the building. The resort is going through construction and I believe they will be working on it for a few months to come. The lobby, porch, and rooms were beautiful. Everyone was very friendly."

  • Great place to vacation

    "My daughter and I stayed her for a vacation and to visit family. We were so excited about the unit we stayed in. It was extremely comfortable and ocean front. We each had our own space as there is a bedroom and a family-room like area next to it. I would highly recommend staying in this unit."

  • Hidden Gem in the heart of Fort Lauderdale

    "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."

  • Great place and very nice location

    "Very nice house in a great location. We were able to dock our boat right in the back yard in a quiet area, but were still a quick jaunt to the inlet and fishing. The pool was great after a day of fishing, and the house was nicely furnished. Highly recommended."

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.
