We hope you will come to Fort Lauderdale to enjoy our sunshine and all the wonderful activities South Florida has to offer.

Why Walter Cunningham Owner- Member since August 2004 chose Downtown

My properties are Guaranteed to be 100% Legally Operated Vacation Rentals - No worries of your vacation being cancelled due to City of Fort Lauderdale Code Enforcement shutting down the house you have rented.

As of November 1, 2015, all vacation rentals located in the City of Fort Lauderdale must be licensed by the City of Fort Lauderdale as a vacation rental. All of my properties have every license required to legally operate as a vacation rental including the new City of Fort Lauderdale Licenses. My Certificate of Occupancy Number is 1500346 and all licensed vacation rental are required to post this license number in their advertisement.

Unlicensed vacation rental properties are subject to closure, fines, penalties and cancellation of reservations.

I am licensed by the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulations, The Broward County Tourist Development Department and the Florida Department of Revenue, The City of Fort Lauderdale Business License, Broward County Business License and City of Fort Lauderdale Vacation Rental License . I am happy to provide copies of my license as they are required to be posted in the properties. These are the six licenses required by every vacation rental.

Part of the new City Ordinance limits occupancy to a maximum of two people per bedroom excluding children under the age of 13. Therefore, a three bedroom property has a maximum occupancy of six guests excluding children under the age of 13. If the home you are considering, is advertising anything more than two people per bedroom, then they are clearly violating the law.

So if in doubt when looking for vacation rentals, ask the property manager or owner.

Far better than any high-rise hotel.

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I planned a trip to Ft. Lauderdale, booking originally with one of the beach front high-rise hotels, after further consideration we decided we would be more comfortable in a condo/home. We began our search through VRBO and stumbled upon this property. The house looked amazing and the price was right. Walter was very flexible being that we weren't staying the traditional sat-sat and accommodated our trip. I can honestly say, the pictures look just as the property does in person. We arrived at the property shortly after a big storm had come through and the pool had some debris in it. I called Cliff and mentioned it to him and he said he saw it and was just returning to the property to clean up the pool. No delay in our use of the pool and it was beautiful from that point on. The house was very secure, multiple locks on the doors, we never felt unsafe. My only complaint, and it's not even something that is entirely within the owners control, but there were a lot of millipedes on the property, with many making their way into the home. So I would recommend an exterminator or if one is used, possibly coming more frequently. Again, bugs are a force of nature, I get that it's Florida, I just don't want to sleep with them. After all, this is a higher end rental property and less bugs would be a powerful tool in marketing to the higher end renters. We would definitely use this property again and would recommend that you should too. Thanks for a great stay, Walter & Cliff.

Owner's Response: Thanks Amanda for the great 5 star review and we are pleased you enjoyed your visit. In response to the comment about the millipedes, the property is sprayed every month, and in fact they pest control company was there during your visit but was not able to get access to that unit. We have to be notified of an issue in order to resolve it, and if we had been notified of any bugs during any guests visit, the pest company will always make an immediate visit to the property to spray.

Will never stay at hotel again. Convenient location, comfortable,quiet and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Pool and patio was clean. Kids enjoyed Pool could be a little tight if two families book at the same time. Luckily the other renters opted for the beach most of the week. Fairly quiet during the day and very quiet at night. Short walk to mall. Looking forward to staying again. Highly recommend

Beautiful property, well maintained, located in a lovely neighbourhood .

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this property and couldn't have been happier. Very close to the Coral Ridge mall for shopping but surprisingly quiet given its proximity to the commercial area. Great neighbourhood for walking if that's your exercise of choice although no sidewalks. Great outdoor area with pool, sheltered seating area and grilling/outdoor eating area.

More than a mile to the Lauderdale beach areas crossing over the bridge to get there. Bicycles would ease this logistic but if you are older and not into walking then driving to the beach is the best option. That said, parking by the beach is a reasonable cost and lots of it.

All in all it was a wonderful stay. Definitely would consider staying at this property again.

Inside the home is well kept, large kitchen, living and dining areas was more than enough space for our party of 4.

No bathtub in either bathroom if baths are your thing. Beds were very comfortable, mattress in the king bed (where I slept) was softer than my home mattress but I still slept well. Thanks to Walter for setting up the home really well.
