Great spot for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing and quiet. No car needed if you like to walk. We used Uber and Lyft from the airport, and then walked a lot. There were no hand towels in the bathrooms, but we got by without them. Pool Towels were provided. Nice dining table and seating area which we used a lot. And kitchen was well supplied with dishes and tools.

Lots of outside bits need a little fixing due to hurricane damage, but nothing that impacted thoroughly enjoying our stay.

We were able to check in early and out late which we really really appreciated!

Thank you!

Property needs update and exterminator

  • 2 of 5

The property was not how it was described and the pics must have been taken 10 years ago. It is really in need of repair and updating. On our first day there we had to call the owner to come and exterminate - the house was full of ants. While the management responded quickly and came with ant traps, etc, we still dealt with the ants during our entire stay. I took photos of the ants and many parts of the house that need repairing but am not sure how to post them. The floors especially in the bedrooms and behind the beds were rusting. Overall the house just wasn't very clean. There was no propane for the grill outside so we couldn't barbecue. There is no tv in the living room. One night a rat ran by me by the pool! The pool was the nicest part of the house and we spent most of our time there. I'm sorry to say we would not recommend this property or stay here again.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property manager was great. Our dryer was not working so she came with new towels everyday. Rooms are huge and there is a tv in every bedroom. Would be nice if there was one in the living room. Pool was nice and warm! Kitchen is large and contains everything you need.

Lovely home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Key West Villa for a girls' weekend. There was plenty of room for all six of us and the house was clean and well-stocked. The management company was a pleasure to work with and responsive in resolving a few minor issues we had during our stay. They were also able to accommodate our request for an early checkin which was helpful. Overall it was a seamless experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ahldin Villas to friends and would book with them again.

Lovely, Spacious, Property - Close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, comfortable, and just as presented in the listing as well as other reviews. The staff is very accommodating, and responded quickly to a number of inquiries pre-trip and during the trip which made our stay and planning very carefree and pleasant. Truly exceptional service throughout.

There was ample room for 3 small families - 6 adults, 4 kids in total - especially being able to eat and cook outdoors.

The walk to the beach is fairly easy, and pretty, though a bit longer than I expected (about 2/3 of a mile... ) - lots of restaurants and bars along the beach right there... we didn't explore Las Olas Blvd, about a mile in the other direction (away from the beach), but there seemed like there were plenty of other (less touristy) options that way as well.

Overall, we'd likely stay again if we decided to stay in Ft. Lauderdale again.
