  • Stay Here!!!

    "We planned a family vacation with our boys and their girlfriends from Oct 7-14 2014.We were very comfortable with 6 of us in the house .It was the perfect spot...close enough to Fort Lauderdale with a smaller town feel.The house has a totally private backyard as it faces the canal and open land and a parking garage.The house was spacious and clean.The Pompano beach is a short drive away and it is by far the best beach we visited during our stay.The pool was a perfect after a day in the sun .I would definitely recommend this house to anyone vacationing in south Florida."

  • Location !!

    "I just returned from a week at this rental. This is an amazing spot for beach lovers. The pool is great and the beach across the street is even better. The hotel staff are top notch. I had a little snafu at check in, but a call to Eddy resolved it in minutes. I usually rent a car on vacation but took a chance and did not this time. Glad I didn't take on the expense of a rental car. You can literally walk to just about anything within 10-15 minutes (except a grocery store which only a $10 cab ride). My only advice to Eddy is to put some cooking utensils and silverware in the room. There were none. Not that I wanted to cook a lot, but I do like to make breakfast- eggs and such and had to buy some cutlery. Awesome vacation spot. I will be back again for sure."

  • A perfect place!

    "This beautiful home is absolutely perfect! I'm almost hating to write this review because this fabulous place is going to be even more difficult to book. We spent 10 days there with a full house including 5 month old twins and we practically never left. The house has everything you need and is very well appointed. It is an open and spacious floor plan with spectacular views of the water. It's clean and modern design create a peaceful energy throughout the house. The house is spotless which was one of the biggest pluses for us with well designed and modern bathrooms. Knowing that we had infant twins, the owner Louise went out of her way to make sure we had cribs, a baby tub with washcloths and a great baby play mat. She has impeccable taste and we not only highly recommend this house, but we will be back in May 2015!"

  • Felt like home

    "We were very pleased with the described property. The house actually made me feel like I was in my home when I was younger. Enjoyed the picturers on the walls and the place for the old telephone. The location was great and close to the beach, stores and restaurants. It was well stocked with just about anything you may need. The owner was very helpful with any questions and the lady that cleans the house was very friendly as well. It was also clean. The neighborhood was charming and the neighbors were very nice. We have a dog so the backyard was very nice for walking him, even though he liked to lizard hunt among the greenery. The only recommendation I would have would be to update the beach chairs and kitchen towels. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants the comforts of home. We certainly would rent again."

Fort Lauderdale Travel Tips

If you're looking a vacation full of sun, warm temperatures, beaches, excellent dining and fun nightlife, Fort Lauderdale is the place for you.

While this Florida city may be known for its epic spring breaks, it's a great place to visit any time of year for families, friends or couples on a romantic getaway. Along the water's edge you'll find miles sandy shores, and when you come inland you'll have a variety of shops and dining options to sample throughout your stay. And with it's subtropical climate, it's an idyllic spot to escape the cold and snow or get a change of scenery during the warmer months.

Considered the "Venice of Florida," Fort Lauderdale features a unique and expansive canal system, so be sure to catch a gondola ride. The city offers a plethora of activities and attractions to explore, from arts and culture to live events and outdoor spaces.

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.
