About the property

Urban Modern Flair. Feels like home under the Pergola.

Your private guest suite is conveniently located close to everything Fort Lauderdale has to offer, 15-20 min drive to anywhere. Step inside and enjoy your own private bedroom with bathroom, washer/dryer, television with cable and Netflix included, separate living space with a two burner stove top, and a full fridge kitchen furnished with all you need to make your own preferred meals. Outside you will enjoy your own patio seating with a roofed stylish Italian Pergola that includes our gas BBQ grill in case you want to burn some steaks; or simply enjoy our little oasis by catching a break on our Mexican hammock included for you to relax and appreciate the green of our gorgeous coconut palms backyard. You will also have peace of mind with your own parking spot just steps away from our back patio. Our quiet intown neighborhood features also a community pool for you to feel the warmth of our sunshine state. We welcome you to our well-lit, peaceful home. We are glad to host people from all walks of life, so see you soon!

The space

We have designed your space to be welcoming, relaxing, and enjoyable. Your private guest suite is located at the back of the home we live in. Your guest suite is closed off and separate from our family living space, so you will enjoy privacy during your stay. You will not see any of our living space or personal possessions. Entry to your suite is private and located around the back of our house.

Your guest suite includes luxury sleeping options for up to four adults. The private bedroom has a queen size bed and ample closet space with hangers. The room also features a 32 inch TV with cable TV. The living room space includes a full size futon bed with a memory foam mattress in which can sleep two additional adults.

Outside, your guest suite entry door opens to a ground-level patio and a beautiful view of our backyard. Your patio is covered by a beautiful designer Pergola and gives you a great sensation of being in a den. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.

Your private suite has fully functional appliances and is clean, simple, and warm, and is perfect for individuals, couples, friend groups, and small families.

Whether you are traveling for business, leisure, a big sporting or entertainment event, an American history adventure, or to see an old friend or new, we've got just the place for you.

While there are a number of coffee shops near your guest suite, you may not want to jump out of your PJ's so quickly in the morning. You will have in the fridge already waiting for you orange juice, milk, eggs, cheese, butter and bread waiting for you to cook them or boil, you will have also access to coffee or if you prefer cereal or bananas. This includes dishes and silverware, along with a microwave and refrigerator/freezer and a nice bottle of wine waiting for you to cheers! to your arrival to the sunshine state.

We are thrilled to welcome you to our home. The guest suite is closed off from our living space and is private. We take your privacy and solitude seriously. With this, since we are close neighbors of yours, you may hear our family from time to time.

Interaction with guests

Your guest suite has been designed with you in mind. The same goes for our interaction with you. Maybe you're on a honeymoon getaway and don't care to see anyone but your new spouse. You won't see the whites of our eyes. But maybe you are eager to make new friends and get advice on all things FLL. We couldn't be happier to help. While our family has its own schedule and quiet hours, we desire our interactions with you to fit your desires. There will be times where we will be unavailable, but other times where we will be quite available.

It is just as it says

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying here if it's just two of you and you want convience and quiet. The place is clean modern and cozy. But be aware if you plan to rent motorcycles you have to park them somewhere else as we found out they aren't permitted there. But still highly recommend and the owner /host is very friendly, helpful and instructions were spot on .

Owner's Response: Hi Rosemary we're so sorry about the issue with the motorcycles. It's the bylaws of our HOA that don't allow them in the premises. Luckily nothing happened the night they were parked here. It was a pleasure having you guys around. You're more than welcome to comeback any time. PS I found your husband's shaver call me.

This property is very clean, private, and quiet. Really enjoyed the back deck, grill, and hammock.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Carlo is very kind and helpful and replies quickly to emails. When we arrived there was a bottle of wine on the the table, extra pillows and blankets in the closet, and plenty of clean linens. The rental was very clean from the floors to the furniture and appliances and even silverware. The first evening of our stay Carlo brought a new mattress pad to go over the futon to make it more comfortable, which we really appreciated. The rear deck, with a hammock and gas grill is where we spent our early mornings and evenings- it is secluded and a great place to relax after a day at the beach. We are grateful we rented this property for our Florida vacation!
