  • Great place for a get away

    "We travelled here with the family during spring break. This home is in a great location and has a very nice layout to it. Three bedroom and they all have ample space – especially the master! There are also three bathrooms so you should never find yourself waiting. However, you don’t come to Ft. Lauderdale for the bathrooms, it’s for the sunshine and the beach and this home gives you access to both. It is a very short drive to the main beach where you can park and spend the day in the sand and surf. We usually headed back before the dead heat of mid-afternoon, to BBQ and hang-out by the pool. Not only that, but this home is in the perfect location for everything: quick access to the major highways, several minute drive to the airport, grocery, etc. The best pizza in town is not too far away – Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. The back patio is an oasis with views to the main river where you’ll see humungous boats sail by (or be tugged by because they’re so big!). The famous Jungle Queen goes by several times a day and is most entertaining in the evening with all the lights. The hot tub is a hit in the evening, perfectly situated facing the main river-way for the best scenery, but perfectly hidden for privacy. The kitchen amenities were great, a professional series stove and oven and anything else you could imagine. The furniture was new (or at least felt like it was) and clean and overall the home was in very good condition with lots of windows to enjoy the sun and view. We didn’t have any problems when we were there, but Jonathan quickly arranged for remedying the very minor things that came up. We even had an opportunity to fish off the dock several times and caught a blue crab and a catfish, which made for a great day of seafood! The fish cleaning station in the back was useful as well, but you should bring your own rods as there aren’t any in the home. We went out and bought some and had to leave them behind because they wouldn’t fit in our bags ? - so enjoy the canal on us! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to come to Ft. Lauderdale!"

  • Thoughtful!

    "I have rented in fort Lauderdale before and this was by far the most confortable I have ever been. Every detail has been thought of to make you feel at home. Linens have been updated from what is shown in the pictures and there are even beach towels and toys for the kids provided. The neighborhood was very safe and the neighbors were all very friendly. My only suggestion would be to add some grips on the stairs to avoid accidents for children and elderly."

  • Well deserving of five stars...

    "I travel a great deal for work and do many long-haul trips to Europe and Asia. Rarely do I do domestic trips. But I had to do a combined business/pleasure trip to Ft Lauderdale and stayed at this property. I am fortunate that for my work-related travels I stay in 4-5-star properties. The downside is that you become spoiled. I was extremely delighted with the level of cleanliness, the actual accommodations were perfect, the beds of excellent quality. One thing that impressed me most was that each time I found myself in the kitchen and went to reach for a utensil, a pot, a glass, it was almost always exactly where I would reach for it, meaning that it was well-thought out and located intuitively. I commented about that to the agent, who actually laughed that I was so bowled over by something so simple. The water pressure was excellent, the outdoor area is incredibly serene, very quiet, I didn't hear a single neighbor. The pool has recently been refurbished and was impeccably clean. It was a treat to sit outdoors in the evenings sipping a glass of wine and just taking in the clear air and letting my thoughts meld into the lightly rippling water from the canal--it was almost like unconscious meditation. The house is in a great location, easy to find, quiet street with little traffic and easy access to anything you could possibly need. As prior reviews have mentioned, the quality of linens while not Frette, was of very high quality, especially for a seasonal rental. I became a huge fan of the place and give it highest marks on all counts. I will definitely stay again."

  • Nice Spot near Las Olas

    "House has everything you would need for kitchen and bath. Three King Rooms all with their own bathrooms makes this a great spot to bring a family or a group of couples.15min walk to the las olas restaurants and just over 20 to the beach. Neighborhood is very nice. Outdoor patio area with grill and pool are very nice. Canal lovely although sparse on fish. Homeowner group very easy to deal with. Outside of needing a little paint here and there, furnishings are modern and very nice. All Pictures here are accurate. Inside table fits 8, outside 6 plus two lounge chairs. BBQ grill, extra fridge in garage, nice laundry. Would definitely stay here 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.

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.
