  • Fun in Fort Lauderdale with Excellent Service!

    "We recently stayed at Paradise Vacation Villa for 1 week. Tom was very organized from our first contact with him, to processing our payment and then meeting with us on our arrival at the Villa. The Villa is very clean and the pool is absolutely fantastic. We spent many hours with the kids in this very private and quite oasis. We had rented a car for our stay, which is very convenient especially if you want to go to the Everglades and see the surrounding areas. There is a Whole Foods within walking distance and a nail salon, hot yoga studio and a pub and restaurant. We did take the #10 bus to the Science Museum which is close to Las Olas Blvd. Once on Las Olas Blvd you can jump on a tram to the beach. We also went on the water taxi tour of the Canals which was great fun. During our stay, we had 2 issues requiring immediate service. The fridge broke down one day, and by the end of the day a brand new fridge had been purchased and installed. The second issue was the sink backed up and again Tom had the whole system flushed out and working within hours. We were due to depart Fort Lauderdale on Saturday but all flights were cancelled until Wednesday because of winter weather delays in other parts of the US. We contacted Tom from the airport to share our dilemma and he assured us that his next guest would not be arriving until Thursday and we would be welcome to stay in the Villa until our flight left on Wednesday. We are a family of 5 and have stayed in many private rentals over the years. We have never received the kind of extra ordinary service that Tom provided."

  • Enjoyable first vacation home experience - left us at ease!!

    "We had 5 couples staying here for 4 days prior to going on a cruise. This is the first time any of us had rented a vacation home, so we were worried about many things prior to our trip. However, once we had arrived to the home, Manny greeted us and we were no longer worried. The pictures and everything that was described to us about the property during the communication matched with what we saw... Actually, it was even better than expected! The house is very big and nice. Lovely kitchen, bar, outdoor BBQ - this place had everything we needed! The garden was spectacular, very large and beautiful. The location is very quiet and safe, and easy to go everywhere. If we ever go back to Fort Lauderdale, we would definitely rent this place again. All 5 couples had a great time! Thank you Willie!!"

  • Amazing Vacation

    "My husband and I decided to stay at this house for a last minute trip! We could not have picked a better place to stay! The owner Tom hooked us up with a boat rental company since we did not have anything planned. We had the greatest time just cruising the ocean all day! He also gave us fabulous recommendations for local restaurants! The best Greek food we've had so far! The house itself was cozy and clean! We would wake up each morning feeling refreshed! His house has the most amazing view of boats going by or the stars at night! If you want to stay at a great house with an awesome tour guide, then this is your house! An overall great experience! Just left and wish I could go back!"

  • Great Place

    "I stayed four nights at the condo while exploring Ft Lauderdale. This was a perfect base -- pretty close to everything in Ft. Lauderdale. All the positive things the other reviewers have written are true. This little apartment is a gem -- clean, quiet, well appointed, and excellently located. Greg, the owner is very responsive; he watches his email and gets right back to you. My dog and I enjoyed morning walks in the neighborhood of lovely houses with lush Florida landscaping. The main streets have sidewalks so no problem if you encounter a little traffic. The Publix and Whole Foods are really close. But the best surprise? On a sunny Tuesday, I drove to the beach at the end of Sunrise Blvd, parked and paid on the street, stepped over the low seawall and was on the beach in under 10 minutes! The condo has beach chairs, beach towels and an umbrella for your convenience. After a long New York winter, it was heaven. I would recommend this place and would definitely return. You do need a car and I think it is best suited for one or two people."

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.
