About the property

4 Large Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 10. Pet Friendly. Ocean View. Private Poo

Our house is located on a private cul-de-sac street that is only 50 meters from the Fort Lauderdale Beach. Highway A1A (our cross-street) is the primary, ocean road that runs from Miami north thru Fort Lauderdale to Palm Beach. Fort Lauderdale's primary nightlife and beach-front restaurants are only a 2 kilometer (1+ mile) walk/drive from our street. The famous Galleria Mall with exclusive stores is a 1 mile drive while Sawgrass Mall with hundreds of outlet stores is 30 minutes away. Supermarkets, movie theaters, golf, restaurants, and nightlife are all short drives from our house while Downtown Fort Lauderdale/Las Olas Boulevard is a great venue for art stores, boutiques, nightlife, and high-end restaurants. Boating/fishing excursions, jet skiing, and parasailing are all offered nearby on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The port for the major cruise lines out of Fort Lauderdale is a 10 minute drive while the Fort Lauderdale International Airport is a short 15 minute drive from our house.

Household Amenities: Our house has a few extra amenities for both children and adults. In the backyard, we have a swing-set with a baby swing as well as a regular swing. Also attached to the play-set is a double-swing and a slide. Our daughter loves this play-set! Also, there is a removable safety fence encircling the pool to prevent accidents for small children. A very important safety feature that allows children to play in the backyard without fear they accidentally fall into the pool. We also have a wide array of board games and card games as well as a Playstation for video games.

For the adults (or kids!), we have boogey board for the ocean along with a floating mat. Furthermore, in the bonus room off the suite we have a full set of 'free weights' with dumbbells, a bench-set with a pull-down and 300 lbs. of weight. We also have a exercise ball for sit-ups. Of course, there is always jogging down the beach or biking in the Nature Park located directly behind our street!

Great family fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Craig's home is in a very convenient location for outdoor fun for all ages. We were a 3 generation group of 9 older members and a 1 year old. The home is very kid friendly, comfortable and lots to do. The pool was clean and warm enough to swim even though we had unseasonably cool weather 3 days of our stay. The 2 minute walk to the beach was perfect. The Hugh Taylor Birch State Park was walking distance (1/2 mile) and has a fun, casual, family outdoor bar/cafe as well as kayaking and other activities. Craig was very helpful and attentive. We would stay here again!

Great family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family had a great time at this beach house. The location is perfect close to a pristine beach that's not overcrowded. Plenty of room for all and a pool right outside the door. Craig was a great host and the whole process was easy. Such a refreshing change from the crowded hotels on the strip. Will definitely go back and highly recommend!

We lucked out with this house!

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect! The house was across the street from the beach. There was a light and crosswalk which made it ideal with small children and all our beach gear. The house is just north of Sunrise Blvd which made the beach family friendly but the restaurants and bars close enough when we wanted to go out. The house had a perfect layout for 3 adults and 2 small children. There was one bedroom we didn't even use - too much space. Grandpa had his private bed and bath on the main floor. We felt safe with two small children around the pool with the pool security screen and private backyard. The swingset and kid toys kept the kiddos occupied throughout the week. My 7 year old said it was his favorite vacation!!

The owners were very response to emails and walked us through the house (via phone) upon arrival. The house was stock with everything we could possible need; gas for grill, charcoal for grill, chairs for beach, and beach towels just to name a few. Highly recommend!!

Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this vacation rental! It is a 2 min walk to the beach. The beach was very quiet, great non-rocky sand, and clear water. We had 5 children 6 and under and the house was well equipped with toys and very kid friendly. All bedrooms were great. The kitchen was well equipped with everything. Our favorite was the pool. It was well shaded during the day and everyone from the 1 year old to grandpa and grandma had a great time in the pool. The owner was very amiable and accommodating. Overall - we would HIGHLY recommend this rental for a family vacation.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying in this house! There was plenty of room for our group of 7, and it is located in a quiet location, but also close to restaurants and shopping. The best part was the short walk across the street to the beach, which was never crowded during our stay. We enjoyed the privacy of the pool and backyard, as well. The owner is amazing with communication, which is greatly appreciated. If we travel to Ft. Lauderdale in the future, we definitely would rent this house again!
