We were switched to the Boathouse closer to the beach

  • 2 of 5

The boathouse was a better location but the bedrooms were an issue. We were told it had two bedrooms and a mother in law suite. It had a closet with a cot and a terrible mattress. Poor lighting and no air vents. The pool and the other parts of the house were fine. This place would be fine for one or two couples. The back bathroom was small as well.

Great house for our trip.

  • 5 of 5

We had a work conference to attend and we decided to find a house for the 5 of us to stay and this was the perfect location. Staying in a house was so much better than all 5 of us staying in our own hotel room. It was great having breakfast in the morning outside before we had to go to the conference, very relaxing. I would highly recommend the house to anyone traveling to Ft. Lauderdale for vacation or work.

Comfortable house with all of the details

  • 5 of 5

This house is comfortable and beautiful. We stayed there for a low-key girls weekend, and it was perfect. There was plenty of space, and a big table with enough room for all of us. I'd highly recommend it!

Gorgeous and Relaxing Stay At Villa

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at Villa Katarina and it was a birthday vacation to remember! The Villa pictures presented online were identical and it had everything we needed for six days. Beds were comfortable, but best of all was the outdoor grill and pool. My friends and I spent most days lounging by the pool while grilling. It's very close to Las Olas and minutes from the beach! Although, we had a couple of minor problems, the property manager always responded quickly and resolved the concerns. Excited about planning another stay in the near future!!

Thought I could believe the description, photos & reviews. Awful. Vacation ruined on first day.

  • 1 of 5

I booked this "villa" as part of a long awaited vacation. A friend from Europe would join me. The owner emailed me that I could stay at this home the night before our actual rental week began. My stomach dropped when I pulled in the driveway.

The exterior looked worn and dirty, I opened the front door & the smell inside this house was horrible, I was physically sick & in shock. The furniture was worn & dirty, carpet damp & smelly, the terrazzo floor was chipped up in the living area. The icemaker was rusty, dirty & didn't work. The interior of the freezer was covered with rust. There was a vase with 2-3 dead roses. I would later be accused of stealing this vase & roses. I texted the property manager, Erika. She said she had just been in this home, had put out vase of roses & that maybe some air freshener would take care of the odor. I won't even go into ALL the other issues. I told Erika we could not stay in this hellhole & would go to a hotel, I wanted a refund as this place was not as described.

I told her to contact the owner, whom I thought lived locally. I then had to find a hotel for that first night & then a hotel with two rooms for my friend & myself on a very busy weekend in the area. 22 hours later the owner called me from Sweden & she would not listen to me. She said she'd arranged for us to stay in another of her units. I said I don't trust that this other unit would be any better. She was not pleasant to deal with. She also said she'd sent an inspector who found contaminated ground water had permeated the home. I told her I'd already paid for two rooms at a hotel & for her to wait until 3 pm on a Friday was not right but she talked over me. Neither she nor Erika listened when I said I was sick (nausea, coughing, migraine) from spending less than an hour in this smelly home. The owner called me again, she told me I cost her so much money, as I'd already contacted my credit card company to get a refund. She also said she'd hired a new property management team, so there is the proof she had incompetent management who should have been taking care of this house.

Don't blame the guest for uncovering your health hazard mess & staff problems. Even my friend got nowhere trying to reason with her. It was ALL about her. No apology. Our vacation was ruined.

Homeaway told me to leave a bad review & that they'd investigate. Wish I could have "captured" the smell in the house.

Perfect relaxation for big family or group of friends!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for quite long and we felt like home! Both bedrooms, kitchen and living room area are very spacious. It is fresh, clean and nicely decorated. The outdoor with dining area, pool and sun deck by the water are great! A big family or group of friends can enjoy and relax both in the house and the surroundings. The location is perfect, close to beach, stores and restaurants. The management and staff are very attentive and service minded. We really enjoyed staying here and I highly recommend renting this house!
