Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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!

Perfect Location !

  • 5 of 5

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 !

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are so delighted we booked here instead of a hotel. Amazing hospitality. We were greeted with a bottle of wine. Very nice after a long flight.

The beach is basically your front yard!!!! and its in a more private area away from all the crowds/drunk people. VERY relaxing.

The house was very clean and beautiful. 2 bathrooms, 2 bedroom. Nice living area, full kitchen which is also stocked. GORGEOUS backyard surrounded by palm trees with a HEATED/LIGHTED POOL!! They also provided bikes, kayaks, chairs&umbrellas, and plenty of towels to take to the beach. We left 2 boogie boards there for you too ;) There are even some kids toys to take to the beach. We spent most of our time in the backyard when we were at the house. and there is an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand from the beautiful beach. Ease of access throughout the house worked well. you can literally get to the backyard from every room of the house. They were kind enough to provide pamphlets and make a local directory of attractions, delivery, restaurants, things to do, ect.

The neighborhood is quiet and felt safe.

Besides being steps away from the beach, you are also steps away from some restaurants/shopping/liquor store. There is also a 24hr Walgreens which came in handy.

You will not regret your stay here!!!! We will definitely be staying here every time we come to Ft Lauderdale!!!!! If you want a relaxing, quiet vacation away from all the drunk tourists, then you will feel spoiled here!!!!

Very well kept, great location

  • 4 of 5

The only thing that I would say is that the description does not state that you must walk through one bedroom to get to the next room. Also the bathrooms. One bathroom has a shower only and one has only a tub. It worked for us but wanted others to be aware of the house set up. Otherwise house is clean, has everything you need and a beautiful backyard and pool! We enjoyed our time.
