Boating is our lifestyle and Mitch 'our Captain' does a fantastic job showing guests on our motor yacht the sights that you cannot see by land. Having his Captains license will assure that you will have a very safe cruise and in good hands.

Why Mitch chose Fort Lauderdale

Our home is located right off the New River on a large lot. Waterfront is the most important thing in having the right vacation rental and ours is ideally located close to major highways, beaches, downtown, airport, convention center and the cruise port and easy access to all amenities.

A Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for our group of 10. Mitch and Sue were so helpful .The bedrooms and living spaces were clean and as described and the kitchen was well stocked. We all loved the pool and used it everyday. The complimentary yatch cruise was so much fun for all of us. Spending the whole day swimming and cruising up the intercoastal was a real highlight of our trip to Florida. We would definately stay here again and would recommend this house to others.

Paradise in Fort Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our two families (4 adults and 8 kids) to share. The kids spent most of their time in the beautiful pool, while the parents enjoyed drinks on the patio! Mitch and Sue took us out on their yacht for an afternoon, which was the highlight of our 5 day stay. Stores were a short drive away, as was shopping and watersport activities (jet skis, snorkeling, fishing). We look forward to returning soon to this beautiful home.

As good as the photos!

  • 4 of 5

The location was close to everything, the outdoor pool/ jacuzzi/waterfall was so tranquil and relaxing. Nice outdoor/ indoor sound system for entertaining party. The boat cruise was very cool. We celebrated our daughter graduating Doc of Optometry with 16 friends and family. Drinks & hors d'oeuvres cruising the canals with our captain Mitch and hostess Sue was a highlight. Sue provided entertaining information all along the 4 hr trip. Would definitely stay here again!

Nice home, pool and boat cruise were great

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the house. It was a perfect fit for our family get away. Pool was nice and we spent a lot of time in and around it. (Don't forget the insect repellant as the mosquitos are pretty aggressive)

Loved the boat cruise and afternoon on the water.

On the down side....I rented the van that is available with the house and that was a huge mistake. We did not find it acceptable for a number of reasons--age, safety, repair, and size.. I ended up parking it at the house the morning after arrival and renting an ADDITIONAL vehicle because I it was not what we expected.

Owner was slow to return deposit (over a month after prompting), and then docked the deposit for gas and parking for the Van.

Over all the house was as advertised and we had a good time..

We had 8 adults & 6 children staying at the home for our vacation. We were all comfortable & there was plenty of space for us. The backyard was great we enjoyed the pool everyday. The yacht cruise was awesome & the memories made priceless.
