  • FABULOUS ~ WONDERFUL ~ RELAXING

    "This was a quick get-a-way weekend my husband 60th birthday and very close friend birthday weekend. We could not have chosen a BETTER home to celebrate the special occasion. The location was perfect, southern exposure, wonderful view, love being on the water. The accommodations and lay out of the home was fantastic!! More than enough room for 3 big men to cook in the kitchen. Everything we needed was available in the house. I talk to Tom prior to arriving and asked if he had coolers and type of grill was available, he went and purchased a extra travel cooler and had a extra filled gas tank for the grill. The BOY'S were impressed!!!! His recommendation for place to visit, eat, and so on was most helpful. . The river taxi is a must do, 17 stops you can get off and hop onto the next taxi.... We can't wait for next year as we will be returning, I would recommend this property to anyone looking for adult get-away-FUN Thanks Tom for everything. Diane"

  • The perfect getaway!

    "We (2 couples) were looking for an easy getaway to celebrate a 40th bday and found it here! Paul was extremely helpful and went out of his way to make our stay extra special! The house was perfect for us - it has an amazingly private backyard with a pool (with an awesome waterfall feature) and is a short walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bars and everything essential! The 2 bedrooms/2bathrooms were extremely comfortable and beautifully maintained. We cooked almost every meal in the well equipped kitchen and outdoor grill. We loved it so much, we didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back! Paul, you have every right to be "braggadocious", you have a gem of a home!! Thanks so much for being so gracious!!"

  • AMAZING!!!!!!

    "The photos do no justice to this home. Its is beyond your expectations. The house is bigger and much nicer than what the photos portray. There was everything that I needed to make my weekend comfortable and memorable. The tropical pool, spa, waterfalls and fish pond looked amazing at night time, it's like it came to life. :-) My favorite was the outdoor tikki sitting area, it felt as if you we're in the Caribbeans. Oh and the master bedroom was an apartment of its own. There was a private hallway to the room. It was immense and the view was beautiful especially in the night looking out to the tropical waterfalls and pool. Although I did not meet Bill, He made sure that I was well taken care of. He is a very awesome person. Thank you Bill for this opportunity to have the best weekend ever!"

  • Luxurious Oasis in the middle of Victoria Park

    "My wife and I spent a week in this townhouse. It was terrific. This really is a private oasis in the middle of Fort Lauderdale. It was exceptionally clean. The furnishings were high end and comfortable, from the bed to the sofa and chairs. The kitchen was very well equipped. We loved the very private pool, patio, and Tiki Bar, and the third floor covered patio off the bedroom too. Kim, the owner, was extremely responsive to our questions prior to our rental, and the resort, next door, who actively manage the property, were friendly and very responsive to any questions we had during our stay. The listing photos are accurate except that some of the furniture has been updated, especially on the upstairs patio. The location is about a 10 minute walk to the popular Las Olas Blvd with its shops, restaurants and galleries. But I recommend a rental car to see all that Fort Lauderdale has to offer. We had a great stay and highly recommend a stay here."

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.
