    "This was my first time renting through VRBO so I was a little nervous. This was not my first time at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort so I know very well how the other rooms look. Before our date arrived I had several questions which were quickly answered by the property manager, Angelo. Check in as always was fast, no issues. Pure enjoyment & relaxation. Room has fantastic views of the ocean, pool area and the city. We were two adults and two kids. One of our kids had to sleep with us in the king size bed while the other took the twin size pull out. Fantastic, will return again :)"

  • Couldn't be better!

    "This house was so inviting, comfortable, and lovely that we almost didn't want to leave. The location is perfect - convenient and private. Most rental houses tend to be devoid of character and personality - not so here! Every detail combines to create a perfectly orchestrated whole. The photos on the website accurately reflect the house, but under-represent the stunning impact of the inviting flow between indoors and outdoors. A highlight of our stay other than the house was a fabulous Greek dinner at nearby Thasos restaurant, which is in a stunning white building with pastel colored lighted windows. The food was imaginative and delicious. We booked a private canal boat through Gondolas West and enjoyed a beautiful and affordable sunset tour with Captain Dan. All in all, our stay was perfect."

  • TERRIFIC GETAWAY

    "THIS IS A FANTASTIC BEACH HOME WITH ALL OF THE AMENITIES. FRONTING BOTH THE BEACH AND INTER-COASTAL, WE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO EITHER RELAX ON THE BEACH OR DOCK, RENT A BOAT, OR LOUNGE BY THE LUXURIOUS POOL. AND WE DID IT ALL. THE HOME IS EQUIPPED WITH NUMEROUS SITTING AREAS WITH ENOUGH LOUNGING EQUIPMENT FOR A DOZEN OR MORE IN ALL AREAS INSIDE AND OUT. THE INSIDE IS WELL APPOINTED, VERY CLEAN, VERY COMFORTABLE AND VERY FUNCTIONAL. OUR SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS WERE GOOD WITH ONE LUCKING COUPLE IN OUR PARTY ENJOYING THE SPECTACULAR MASTER SUITE. EACH ADDITIONAL BEDROOM HAD A SITTING AREA AND IT'S OWN EN-SUITE. BEDS WERE COMFORTABLE. KARINA AND HER STAFF WERE VERY RESPONSIVE TO OUR NEEDS AND WHEN THERE WAS A SLIGHT GLITCH WITH THE A/C IT WAS FIXED IN A TIMELY FASHION WITH MINIMAL DISRUPTION. ALL IN ALL, THIS IS A FANTASTIC PROPERTY AND LOCATION. WE WERE A GROUP OF 5 COUPLES WHO HAVE BEEN DOING THIS TYPE OF THING FOR 30 YEARS AND THIS WAS AMONG OR MOST ENJOYABLE EVER. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR COUPLES AND FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN YOUNG & OLD."

  • A++++++ VACATION

    "My wife and I enjoyed our time at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort. This unit was very spacious and exactly as pictured in the ad. We thought it was very clean and updated. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had breakfast on the veranda which was very pretty looking at the ocean. One night we had burgers and salads in the bar area. It is a very relaxing atmosphere and everyone is really friendly. Had a good time in Ft. Lauderdale and will return."

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.
