  • Melanie, vacationer from MI

    "We LOVED our week long stay at this property. The whole process of payment/agreement/check-in/check-out went very smooth, no problems at all. The house is tastefully decorated with nice, simple stuff. We didn't ever feel like our almost 2 year old was going to hurt himself or break anything- what a relief! Loved the pool and were so thankful for the heater!! Great backyard in general, tons of privacy. Publix is very much so within walking distance which was great considering we cooked almost every meal at the house! Dishwasher in the house would've been a little more convenient if it had detergent to use with it-eh, we survived, but we hand washed a lot more dishes than we cared to. The tiny ants on the kitchen counter were a total turn-off, but we "managed" them with the bug spray in the cupboard. Let's just say we definitely kept all of our food in the refrigerator so that we didn't have to worry about ants ruining it :( House does seem to be in a lower end of town but we walked the streets a lot and never felt in danger or worried, so I thought it was just fine! Landscaping in the backyard could probably use some thinning out, seemed a little overgrown, but yet we did like the privacy. Wouldn't want to lose the privacy if the trees & bushes were trimmed. We appreciated the beach toys! Walk-in closet in back bedroom definitely needs a light, or maybe we just couldn't find it. Beds are SQUEAKY!!! I think you just need to cut the cardboard out of the boxspring to solve that problem :) I wouldn't say this property is a 5 star resort, but we aren't really high maintenance people, so we're good at making do with what we have :) we had a GREAT time and despite my suggestions for improvement, we would re-visit this property, no doubt."

  • Perfect place

    "We just arrived yesterday and we already miss the place. The house is super clean, full equipped and the location is perfect. When I was looking for a house and read the reviews I told myself all 5 stars, it seems impossible... but we really couldn't ask for more. Steve is awesome. Thank youuuuuuu"

  • 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."

  • GORGEOUS vacation rental home - very nice and friendly owners

    "Me and my family were looking for a vacation rental home in April 2014 to spend one week of our Florida vacation there. It was a great location for beach vacation, near the beautyful Victoria Park and very close to Las O Las in a very quiet and secure area. We had a great time, Fort Lauderdale is worth a journey every time...and the best was the vacation rental home and it´s very friendly, nice and forthcoming owners. The very clean and stylish equipped house provides everything you need for a great vacation...especially the fully equipped kitchen surprised even with a huge choice of spices, oil...everything you need additional for cooking... There are also beach chairs, beach toys for kids and stuff like this provided. We want to say a very special THANK YOU to Julie and Bill - you made our vacation perfect. Just keep the house that clean, great equipped and organized - we would love to recommend it to everybody who´s searching for a place to stay for vacation in Fort Lauderdale. We felt like home there - extraordinarily homy - and Julie and Bill makes you feel very welcome. Thank you so much - we would love to stay again in your beautyful, clean and homy house. Corina+Christian & Family"

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.
