About Jon Zimmerman

I have been in the vacational rental industry for over 14 years as a property manager and owner.

Jon Zimmerman purchased this house in 2003

Why Jon Zimmerman chose Florida South East

It is a beautiful little home that has all of the amenities that a family would require on their beach vacation. It has a beautiful, secluded backyard pool and it is a block from one of the nicest beaches in South Florida in a very safe, quiet neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

This is a very quaint home located in a very safe, quiet neighborhood just a few minute walk to the sand that has been a favorite of families since we bought it. The house is not very large, however it has a nice floor plan and a beautiful large fenced in backyard that surrounds the pool and hot tub, which seems to be a family favorite. The beach in this area is public, but feels like a private beach since you don't have to share it with big hotels or condos as there are predominately single family homes on the beach.

Great last minute find. A few problems but great response and action from owner

  • 5 of 5

It's inevitable to have things go wrong, whether on vacation or in a home.

We booked a house on VRBO a few weeks ago for our upcoming vacation to Florida. A few days before our arrival, the owners said the "listing was no longer available", double charged our credit card and then disappeared off the face of planet. VRBO was no help at all to try and fix the fraud so we had to go through our bank to try and get some of our money back. :/ With 2 days to spare before we arrived in Florida, and much reluctancy on my part to use VRBO ever again we found this little gem off Pompano. Cute neighborhood, an older house for sure, but updated kitchen. The owner Jon was totally awesome. We ran into a few problems, and he was quick to respond and fix whatever we needed in the house.

He even personally called us to apologize for the minor issues.

Overall a really pleasant experience and saved us from having to shell out a ton of money for a hotel for the week!

Terrific family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We returned last Saturday from a week at the Dow St House in Pompano Beach. The house had everything our family of three adults and three children (including a 6-month old) would need: a nice clean heated pool and spa, lovely backyard with patio seating for everyone, 3 well appointed bedrooms, nice living area, all just a block from a nearly deserted stretch of public beach. We cooked most meals at the house and enjoyed exploring the area, including a nice park just a few blocks away with a lighthouse and fishing pier. The new Pompano Beach park about 1 mile to the south was a nice surprise too, which has a really nice new playground, bathrooms, and walkways. The owner of the property was very easy to deal with and everything was well organized for our stay. We would stay here again.

It was simply perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say there wasn't anything to complain about. The property was as described; it was lovely. The pool was wonderful. Everything you could possible need was there and then some. The owner I dealt with, Jon, was a sweetheart. I had a scheduling snafu and Jon was able to accommodate us without hesitation. I just can't wait to go back next year. It was a fabulous experience without a doubt!!!
