About Tamara Swenson

My name is Tamara and my husband's name is Eric. I'm originally from Newfoundland and my husband is originally from Minnesota. We moved to Florida years ago as we both love the weather, the people and most importantly the location. We are huge Disney fans, so if you are interested in visiting Walt Disney World, let us know, we can give you loads of wonderful ideas. We also have two adorable Yorkies; Braiden (the smaller) and Bree. They are very well behaved and will be out of your way during your stay. But, if you are a dog lover, Bree loves to fetch the ball if you take the time to throw it for her. We are also proud parents to three wonderful children, and are grandparents to .

Why Tamara Swenson chose Downtown

We absolutely love this location, you are minutes for almost every point of interest Fort Lauderdale has to offer. The Water Taxi is just minutes down the road and you can take that taxi and hop and off of it to explore your new surroundings.

What makes this Cottage unique

We know once you've stayed with us you will love the location along with our rental. We have put many hours painting it and getting it ready for your visit. We believe we've included almost everything you will need to make your stay enjoyable and stress free.

                                                              Great location, wonderful, private cottage with considerate hosts that have every detail covered.

                                                              We spent a weekend in Tamara and Eric’s cottage after a cruise. The property is close to everything in Fort Lauderdale and located on a quiet street. The cottage was so comfortable and roomy with a kitchen living room, separate bedroom and bath. I really enjoyed the little private patio off the bedroom. Tamara has included anything you would possibly need during your stay in the cottage from beach towels and a cooler to coffee and wine. The hosts were attentive yet gave you your privacy too. This was my first time using any type of home stay, Tamara has set the bar very high. I will definitely use homeaway again, because it felt like home, so much better than a hotel! The personal suggestions from a local, inside information about tours and the area from the owner make this property your best bet when in the Ft Lauderdale area!

                                                              I really enjoyed to stay with my two friends in this house and the hosts Tamara and Eric, her husband, a kind of execellent people with two friendly doggies.

                                                              The cottage has everything you need from your stay, kitchen, livingroom with a big TV, a comfortable bedroom, beautiful backyard with a jaccuzi and a laundry room.

                                                              I highly recommend this place because it's near to everything, shops, supermarkets and beaches.
