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.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were very up to date. The pool was maintained perfectly. The outdoor patio was very pleasant with accommodations for eating outside. The kitchen was convenient, the décor and linens were attractive. We were very comfortable finding our every housing need met.

Owner's Response: We try to keep this home somewhat simple but comfortable and yet stay with the times. Pool cleanliness is an absolute must our pool people are just as adamant about as we are. Outside dinning in South Florida is a given on the water and enough seating outside to host a small gathering of frequents and family makes patio and deck feel more at home at least we think so. We try to have a decor to match the area somewhat, Beachy, South Florida style, hoping to make it somewhere you can come in-from the beach, shopping, golfing, fishing,or a day on the water and relax. Eat in or go out a kitchen with enough to cook and enjoy or just snack and go out all preferences for our awesome guests we thank each and every guest so very much for choosing our home and hope for returning guests.

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.
