LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION IS WHAT THIS HOUSE HAS THAT THE OTHERS DO NOT! You can pay about the same or a bit less to get in the car and drive to the beach or you can just walk twenty steps from your front door if you stay here.
This is a very cozy 1700 square foot home which sits directly across from the world famous Fort Lauderdale Beach. The home is very warm and inviting with two bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom is enormous and both bedrooms open up to a covered patio and the heated pool.
There is also a nice size living area, a dining room and an updated kitchen with new appliances. This place is absolutely perfect for a vacation getaway. I don't think anyone will really want to leave. We have gone to great lengths to make sure your stay is enjoyable and problem free.
Tons of windows and cathedral ceilings add to the warmth of this vacation home. If you like diving or snorkeling, there are beautiful reefs just fifty yards in front of this house. There are also a wide variety of shops restaurants and activities all close by for you to make your vacation complete.
The house sits in a unique and only beachside community in Fort Lauderdale with a detail police officer that constantly patrols our small two street upscale neighborhood.
Houses in this neighborhood start at a million dollars and are selling for as much as eight million on the same street.
This home is located just three miles from famous Las Olas Boulevard and downtown. We are about six miles from the Fort Lauderdale airport and about ten miles from the Hard Rock Casino. South Beach, Miami is twenty miles South of us and Palm Beach is located fifty miles North.
This is truly a piece of paradise. Enjoy the private pool and constant ocean breezes. You can actually hear the ocean hit the sand from your front door. There are tons of great restaurants and tourist attractions and we will be pleased to point you in the right direction.
We are not absentee owners as we live just down the street and can usually address your needs or questions in just minutes.
The property comes equipped with a kayak, bicycles, masks, snorkels, beach chairs, beach towels and so much more.
Come have drink....kick back and relax! You deserve this trip!

The house and pool were perfect. Our kids loved being so close to the ocean and a short walk to restaurants/water taxi. We would stay here again and again.
Great location......private and exclusive area just steps from the beach
The owners were very friendly and accommodating and the home had everything we could want or need. One of the last Oceanside neighborhoods in the area. We highly recommend this property for a fun family experience.
Modern, functioning house with lovely pool, steps from the beach. What's not to like?
As the headline says, this is a functioning house with every feature that most people have in their own homes. It also comes with lots of childrens' toys and books, bicycles, a sea kayak and more. The pool and yard are lovely, offering both sun and shade. The house is literally a 1 min walk from the beach. My wife and I enjoyed the house very much, and would certainly go back. It provided us with a real Florida experience.
The house is immediately south of the Galt Ocean Mile, so some high rise buildings are visible. However, there are only single family homes on the streets around the house and for some distance south along the beach. It is very close to the intersection of Oakland Park Blvd. and A1A. There are several restaurants, a pharmacy and a grocery store within walking distance.
One small quirk: there are 2 bedrooms (each with its own bathroom), but you have to walk through the smaller bedroom to reach the (much) bigger one from the living room/kitchen area. However, there are doors to the pool area from the kitchen and both bedrooms, so it is possible to get from the large bedroom to the kitchen without going through the small bedroom by walking outside, through the covered part of the pool area.
Perfect Location !
This house was the perfect getaway for our family. We loved the location just a few steps to the beach. The private pool area was enjoyed every day during our stay. Everything you may need is provided. We will be back next year. Thank you Michael and Regina !
Our family, including a kindergartner and toddler, had a wonderful time at Michael's property! We specifically chose this cottage for its proximity to the ocean and the backyard pool and it did not disappoint! It was very easy walk to the ocean (even with 2 small kids), the pool was clean and we made use of the available beach chairs, sand toys and pool floats, too. The master suite was spacious and updated, however the bathroom had a soaking tub with a handheld sprayer. Great for bathing the kids, but not ideal for my 6'1" spouse. The only shower is in the smaller 2nd bedroom. Only a minor inconvenience for us (we couldn't shower when the kids were sleeping) - just something I was not aware of when I made the reservation.
The upscale neighborhood felt safe and we enjoyed strolling down the streets admiring the architecture. This house was stocked with everything we needed and then some - we really appreciated the chilled wine, water and citrus fruits awaiting our arrival. We visited Lauderdale-by-the-Sea (a quick 5 minute drive) for tacos (JoJo's tacos), fudge (Kilwin's) and ice cream (Sloan's) - a very cute area!
Thank you Michael and Regina for sharing your beach cottage with us - We would definitely recommend your property for another small family or couple!
We would definitely go back!
This house was absolutely perfect for myself, my husband, and our infant daughter. It was both the little things, and the big things that made our stay so pleasurable.
The big things: The location absolutely can't be beat. We were literally steps from the beach which made carrying a baby, beach gear, and baby items much easier. And we could go back to the house for meals and naps. The pool in the backyard was the perfect size for our little family to enjoy. Everything in the house was impeccably clean and well kept.
The little things: There was a chilled bottle of wine waiting for us when we got there. There were a multitude of books to choose from on their shelves---including children's books. Our daughter loved having new books to enjoy before bed time. Basically every kitchen or beach amenity was accounted for: beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, towels, utensils, condiments, spices, etc. This might sound silly, but there were shutters in every bedroom, which is crucial when you have a baby that goes to bed at 7:00 pm and it's still light out! The owners allowed us to use their pack n play and it was perfect for our daughter to sleep in.
We absolutely loved the house and would definitely go again!
