The Hosts thought of everything!
We were here for 5 nights over the Christmas holiday with our 2 dogs. It was decorated for Christmas. The property is well represented on the HomeAway site. The cottage was clean. It was extremely well stocked with kitchen and bath items. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom had a sliding door to separate it from the main living area. Everything is new and the appliances are high end. Even the outdoor gas grill was new. Speaking of outdoor, the small courtyard in the back out the bedroom french doors was great for our 2 dogs to get some fresh air but we did have to supervise them while they were out to make sure they didn't escape via the temporary side fence. We used some of the fresh herbs growing outside in our meals we prepared. I liked that there were 2 televisions - husband got to watch his football and I got to watch my movies and Netflix. The hosts were extremely attentive and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed and knew where everything was and how to use it. Their back door was only steps away from the Bamboo Cottages front door. They have beach towels, chairs, umbrella, etc. available for you to take to the beach which is nice. The location is convenient and in a 1950's neighborhood of similar, mostly well kept homes. There is a public park about a block away that was a nice walk with the dogs. Thank you for being wonderful hosts, Rosemarie and Rob.
It was a pleasure to host Kitty and John they were great guests. Their dogs were well behaved. They left the place clean and tidy. We hope to host them again.
Five star stay
The property is just as it appears in the pictures, clean comfortable with new appliances and everything you need for your stay. Thank you Rose Marie and Rob our experience was everything we had hoped for. Rob and Rosemarie were attentive but not intrusive. The neighborhood is a quiet residential area, set back from the hustle and bustle of Fort Lauderdale. You will need a car, And parking is Convenient. We had a great stay and would definitely come back!
The Big Little Cottage
Recently spent a week at this property without any disappointments. The utilization of 432sq feet was remarkable, the space had a good "flow" to it, everything was as seen online, perhaps even better. Cottage immaculately clean along with quality comfort of the bed, linens & towels. Hosts Rosemary & Ron are total delights and extremely responsive to any inquiries that may have arisen. Neighborhood is very close to I-95, however no noise can be heard and the entire neighborhood is very quiet & has a safe feeling to it day or night as I walked my dog. I absolutely would stay here again!!
What an Amazing Stay at the Bamboo Cottage
This was our first time using VRBO/HomeAway and what a great experience it was. We were late in our planning of a winter getaway but were fortunate enough to come across the Bamboo Cottage and even more fortunate that there was availability for our dates. We arrived on December 30th and were greeted by our hosts, Rob and Rosemarie. They provided us with a full tour of the property and it's many amenities. Everything we would ever need during our duration was made available to us from a fully equipped kitchen to beach chairs. The cottage was super clean and tastefully decorated with ample space for our luggage and our many purchases. The back courtyard with BBQ was a great space for our morning coffee and outdoor dining experiences. The property is centrally located with easy access to airport, shopping, beach, nightlife, restaurants, etc. and is located in a quiet, friendly and safe community. Access to laundry facilities was a plus.
Rob and Rosemarie were very respectful of our space but were available for any of our needs and questions. It was a pleasure interacting and getting to know both of them and we hope to see them again in the future.
So Florida visit
We had a wonderful week in a great cottage. It was actually as seen, very comfortable, very well stocked including coffee. The owners were very friendly and a great couple. They went out of their way to make sure everything was good.
