About Paul Weinstein

I am living and working in Key West at the moment so this has worked out beautifully. It's a great house with great energy. Pet friendly and yard is completely fenced.

Paul Weinstein purchased this house in 1997

Why Paul Weinstein chose Downtown

It is not a large home, but one of the most charming homes around with a great backyard for entertaining. The neighborhood is awesome-the closest Isle to the beach. My home is surrounded by multi-million dollar mansions, it stands out for it's inherent charm. Backyard is completely fenced and I am dog friendly. (I usually prefer dogs to people). Short stroll to beach and restaurants. Trolley will take you the 1 mile to the famed Las Olas shops and restaurants, so no need to worry about a car.

Beauty, location, price & amenities are excellent

  • 5 of 5

Having booked various vacation homes, I would have to say that this home is one of my favorites based on its beauty, location, price and amenities. Surrounded by multi million dollar homes and just a short 100’ stroll (one house away) to Lauderdales most famous intercostal waterways, this property is a great value. The homes architectural style is reminiscent of a 20’s-30’s Spanish style bungalow. It’s interior is warm and comfortable and accommodates all your vacation needs. Stepping through rear French doors your patio/pool oasis awaits you. As a traveler that gets bored pretty easily, I found the home to keep me there from day to night because of it’s casual lifestyle atmosphere. Yet.... it’s just a 3 minute drive to Las Olas Blvd (the Rodeo Drive of Ft Lauderdale) for fine or casual shopping,dining and entertainment. The homes location also enables you to take a short 10 minute walk over the intercostal bridge to Lauderdales finest beaches, restaurants and exciting entertainment. Whether it’s a vacation for a family of six seeking a centralalized resting place, or a couple (of any type lifestyle) wanting a relaxing refuge, this is the place to rest, relax and chill. There’s even a great wine chiller for bottles of champagne. This is the place to be!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 days at Casa Paulo and just loved it! It’s a great location - easy to get to all the places we wanted to go. The house is beautifully furnished and the amenities are outstanding. Paul is a most gracious host, responding quickly to questions and with great tips. The private patio and pool were perfect. Even when it was windy and cool at the beach, our patio area was sunny and comfortable. Loved our stay!
