Owner's Response: it seems kids and families have such a good time in the pool and backyard. They seem oblivious to most other things and seem to settle into Vacation very well with a pool and yard to play in, with a fence that keeps them safe from the street. But not water side there is no fence or obstruction across the dock so while in while in the pool you can watch boats go by in the canal or just enjoy being on the water. Just a short ride to multiple beaches and attractions. We appreciate our guests and their feedback but most of all we appreciate guests choosing our home to stay in and look forward to trying to improve and make our home a better home to continue staying in.

This place was amazing

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Penny the owner is a absolute sweetheart. I booked this house for my family who came down to stay for a week, the house was perfect. This house was clean, centrally located, and right on the water, it was perfect. Penny, made sure every thing was just right, she went way above what I expected to make sure my family's had everything they needed. I would absolutely stay here again, i will defently tell everyone I know how great this experience was. If you want a place to stay in Fort Lauderdale you can't do better than this house.

We enjoyed our stay. Would do it again.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We would have stayed a couple of months longer, but someone had already rented it. Take advantage of the canal outback and rent some kayaks. The nabors were great. The owners make it fantastic as well. They were there right away with a simple request for a light bulb. Yes, the description of the property was accurate. The location was convenient. Great customer service from the owners. I would rent again.

Clean welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed many home away houses but this one is the best yet so clean so welcoming. There was a swimming pool to cool us off at the end of the day. It was the perfect location close to everything. The airport was miles away. Everything was new. I'll stay here again!!!

Great space with everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and well cared for and the rental experience was well organized and hassle free from start to finish. Pool was a refreshing break from the wonderful heat and humidity and the blender was put to good use during our stay. The property is close to the airport and to the interstate so we enjoyed the lovely patio to the hum of traffic but it was nothing that our tiny bluetooth speaker playing our favorite playlist couldn't handle. Thank you Penny and Dan.

About Danny or Penny

We are conscious property owners. We try to pay attention to detail. We like for everyone to feel at home away from home. We try our hardest to maintain our home but occasionally we need your help to tell us if something is not working we want your stay to be trouble free and hope our home provides that for you.

We work hard and play hard but at the end of the day we Thank The Lord for all the Blessings in our lives. We appreciate all of our guests, friends and family as for without all of you we are no one and have nothing.

We love to help visitors find things to do, to eat and we've been known to go for a boat ride thru town with guests, run down to the Keys and show some fun places and things.

We love vacations and hope everyone who come enjoys there vacation to the fullest. We also love to help future Homeowners find there forever or for awhile homes. We love crew and know it's nice to be able to be in a home while the vessel is in dry dock as well so there is no one we will not try our best to help with there stay and their ability to stay so don't be afraid to ask you will be surprised at the things we get asked and sometimes agree to!!!!

Danny or Penny purchased this house in 1998

Why Danny or Penny chose Downtown

Why this property that's a great question. It's Clean efficient, in a good neighborhood, has good neighbors. And we are fair and honest we will do our very best to keep it up to our travelers expectations and keep it simple and clean. Our pictures show what this house is and when it changes so will the pictures our promise is to keep our listing up to date and as honest as we can.

We Truly want your business and want you to be comfortable and happy. We chose this home because of waterfront canal and neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

We love the water and hope travelers will too. This home has a Private pool, single car garage with electric opener, private security system, dock with power, private back yard. Possible 4 car parking outside on brick paver driveway. It's in The Heart ❤️of Fort Lauderdale. In a sleepy established neighborhood.

Owners who truly care about your comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

lt was so nice to be able to relax at the pool and look out to the canal. This was an inviting clean home. We felt safe and right at home. We could not have asked for better hosts Dan and Penny were awesome they gave us lots of ideas of where to eat and what to do. We will certainly return and stay longer. E feel as though we have a home away from home to come to. Kitchen had everything we needed to have meals in. The house decor was relaxing and fun..Thanks for a great time and great place to stay.
