  • The best property in Downtown Ft. Lauderdale!

    "The owner of this property takes great pride and care when renting this beautiful luxury home located in a great neighborhood of Downtown Fort Lauderdale called Victoria Park. We have stayed in another property owned and operated by Steve and we are always impressed with the 5 star accomodations, the convenient location to downtown and the beach, and his genuine hospitality and professionalism."

  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "Our family of five adults rented this house for a week in January, and it was even better than we expected. The house seems to be newly remodelled with lots and lots of beautiful tile everywhere. It was super comfortable for the five of us, the pool and hot tub were clean and sparkling, and the beds were comfy. Being in a quiet neighborhood, we were able to get plenty of rest and sleep as well. The weather was so pleasant we were able to keep the windows open whenever we were in the house...we never had to use the air, except for the day we arrived, and it worked well to keep the house very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped, and a door at the end of the kitchen leads out to the spacious deck and pool area. There is plenty of seating for you and your guests outside, and even a couple of shy iguanas make their presence known, if you are observant. The front yard is very private, and a perfect place to enjoy more sun in the afternoon. Everything was super clean when we got there, and the owner was very happy to allow us to enter the home early in the day. The house is only about 1 mile from all the shopping you will need for your stay; grocery stores and a pharmacy are very close by, along with restaurants and gas stations. You can be on the freeway in about five minutes, however, the neighborhood is quiet and safe. We didn't use the kayaks at the house, but family members did find the workout room nice....my husband and I walked the neighborhood and enjoyed the scenery. Our favorite walk, however, is the Broadwalk in Hollywood, Florida, and parking for that is about a 15 minute drive away. I would highly recommend this home, and in fact, we all agreed we want to go back."

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.
