Rare Manatee. :A recent visitor commented about our Manatee:" The claim about seeing manatee is no b.s....we saw at least 50 in the shallow water right off the seawall, most passing by, coming up for air and leaving with a tail flip...sometimes they would gather around the barnacles and nibble off the plants growing there...contrary to popular belief they seem pretty strong, fast and agile although many bear the scars of boat propellers on their backs

Enjoy the upscale neighborhood with views of million dollar mansions and mega-yachts floating by from your backyard or step out on a five-minute walk to the sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale. Located in a corner lot on the intracoastal on the beachside, this house is perfectly placed to enjoy the essence of glitzy, sunny South Florida.

Getting Around:

All the best restaurants, shopping and nightlife are right around the corner.

You can even get a water taxi to pick you up right in your back yard or take an Uber to any destination nearby.

Guestbook comments from the manager

April 7, 2014

This property was excellent and the location was perfect. It accommodates a lot of people and is perfect for multiple families because it has two washers, dryers and kitchens. The rooms are comfortable and the views are wonderful. We had a blast and 2 weeks wasn't long enough.

Great location, beautiful views on intracoastal waterway

Stayed here with 13 girls for a bachelorette party and it was perfect for us! Plenty of room and we could barely leave the pool. All day you have amazing views of yachts and boats going by as you lay by the pool. Very close to the beach and easy to get to all restaurants and bars.Julia was so sweet and very easy to work with! I would highly recommend!!

10/10 house, view, pool, experience

  • 5 of 5

The pool, deck, and view made the house a 10/10! There was so much outside space it was almost like having a whole other house! The beach was also a short 5 minute walk from the house. It was really convenient that the house was stocked with beach and pool towels so you didn’t have to worry about bringing from home.

Julia was so great to coordinate with and was willing to accommodate any of our needs/requests.

I would 100% rent this house again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your excellent review. Our pool is so wonderful that guests often miss the fabulous beach which is steps away from the Villa. We just updated our exterior areas and they are really great. We pride ourselves and wonderful customer service since we are owned operated by licensed Florida realtors what’s the best guest experience for visitors. Please come back soon

Amazing Property and Location!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property to everyone, and if I ever rent in Florida again it will definitely be this house! Some minor updating might be needed but the house is still phenomenal, and the outside pool area is very large with a great view. Julia was absolutely amazing! She responded to every question I had for our group within an hour. She even dropped us off at the grocery store when we first got to the house, which she absolutely did not need to do! This house could easily accommodate 15 people. Again highly recommend!!
