About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, sleeps 10!

Welcome to Villa Pine! This delightful 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom home is situated 2 1/2 blocks from the beach in the pretty picturesque seaside town of Lauderdale by the Sea. You will not find a nicer, more private location for your getaway vacation. I am rated #1 in best and highest reviews in Fort Lauderdale and Lauderdale by the Sea for accommodating 10 people in a home :)

Entering the home on the ground floor, you are greeted by a living room that offers a flat screen TV and a brand new queen size sleeper Serta sofa, ( serving as a 5th open bedroom). As you walk past the open staircase, you will find an open floor plan offering a private powder room, dining table that sits 8 people, an open family room, offering furnishings with three couches and another 55" LED Smart TV with DVD player, cable , Netflix and over 100 DVDs to chose from ranging from children to mature audience. There are also books and plenty of board games to chose from as well. The kitchen is warm and inviting with breakfast bar for 5 and 8 at dining table as part of the open floor plan. So there is seating for 13 people. There is a smaller bedroom on the ground floor equipped with a queen size bed, flat screen TV and cable with DVR and ceiling fan. Adjacent to the room, is a large walk in laundry room off the kitchen, also equipped with washer, dryer, and beach chairs, umbrellas , lots of sunscreen. There is a fabulous, unobstructed view of the pool from the living areas and kitchen.

There are two sets of french doors in the family room which lead to the large awning that covers the patio area overlooking the extremely private resort style pool with waterfall. Some townhouses claim to have pools but they are shared or very small, so be sure to ask. I have a full size 15x 30 pool which is the largest pool in LBS for a townhouse.

The rear patio offers 3 lounge chairs, 4 spare chairs and outside dining table for 6/7, a stainless steel has BBQ and a charcoal grill, as well.

Off the foyer of the second floor, you will find the master suite which offers a king size bed, a flat screen TV, DVD player and cable with DVR and ceiling fan. There is also a full size crib in the corner of the room and out of the way. There is also a large walk-in closet and a private balcony with 2 chairs and a small table overlooking the yard and pool. The very private master bathroom offers a full size jacuzzi spa tub, a separate glass shower and 2 separate vanity sinks on either side of bathroom with large mirrors, blow dryer and a ceiling fan. The toilet is enclosed and even has a phone! Bedroom two has a low European style platform king size bed, built in night stands a flat screen TV, DVD player, cable with DVR. Bedroom three offers twin beds, nightstands flat screen TV, cable with DVR and ceiling fan. There is a second full size bathroom with tub and shower. There is also a pack and play crib in the linen closet and vacuum in between the bath and bedrooms.

HD, TV, WI-FI throughout the home.

This villa is ideal for individuals and large families in search of a relaxing getaway, in an extremely private setting, with the convenient accessibility to everything Lauderdale by the Sea and greater Fort Lauderdale has to offer.

It is not suited for loud parties at night as this is a very family oriented home. This is for groups of adults or families that like peace and quiet surroundings. So if you are looking to stay up late at night outside, this is not the right home for that. There are plenty of bars in the area to do your "partying" fun outside ;)


I hope to see you soon at Villa Pine and hope to make your vacation a fab memory that will last you a lifetime and hopefully will make you want to come back to every year.

About Sandra Naylor

I am a long time local resident, ( 16 years). I am not a rental agency so therefore like to greet my guests personally and am happy to provide with any helpful information on dining, recreation and nightlife, or anything else you may need assistance with, while your stay here at Villa Pine. You can reach me at any time. I take pride in my personal assistance with my guests as this is also my home where I once lived. I do not consider it a hotel but more like sharing a lovely place to help you have a relaxing, fun and memorable holiday with your family/firends. I can also be a concierge, at no charge, if you need to book car reservations, restaurants, or anything you may need prior your stay at Villa Pine. Just let me know in advance , when you book with me and I will take care of your needs if you're not familiar with the area or perhaps simply from another country and need help with the language.

Sandra Naylor purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Sandra Naylor chose Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

It feels like a little Shangri-La nestled in a very quiet street and completely private. The street starts at intercoastal and ends at the ocean. Children are safe to play outside and there is safety police cars that drive around at least 4 times a week. I lived here with my own children so I know what a great place it is to be here. My kids loved it and so do my family and friends.

What makes this townhome unique

Feels like a home not a rental, in a small, quaint beach side friendly community with a great pool! Very safe environment. My home is the only townhome in all of Lauderdale by the Sea that has a regular size 15 x 30 pool not shared.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Sandra, we miss being in FL by the beach. We had a great and relaxing time at your place. Everything was sooo convenient. No car for 5 days and lots of walking. 🦎🐚🌴Loved it. Everyone is already talking about going back....Have a wonderful Holiday Season!

beautiful and private

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice and quiet weekend. Sandra came to greet us and introduced us to her house, showed us what and where everything is and let us have our real privacy throughout our stay. Whenever we did have a question she was very easily reached by phone and gladly answered all our questions. The house was very clean. We loved the comfortable coaches. Sandra provides lots of entertainment for adults and children like a variety of DVD and board games. The pool is nice and warm. The master suite upstairs is the most comfortable one I have been since I have been few times in other private homes. In addition it was clean and spacious. Plus there is a nice size walk in closet where you have plenty space for all your belongings even your hangers you can leave at home Sandra provides plenty of it. So to wrap up my review we thank Sandra for making our weekend be so comfortable and we will consider booking again next year. We will also recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: It means the world to me when my guests take the time to leave a review. I am so happy you stayed with me and enjoyed your weekend. I try to be as helpful and reachable as possible in the least amount of time so that you can continue to have a good time with no issues. I agree with you as far as the master. It is a very nice size bedroom as I lived in this home with my children for quite a while and I sure did love the space ;) And the pool in the winter months here is definitely a nice place to be doing the day. I hope to see you again soon at Villa Pine!

Lovely home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home from December 26th through January 2nd. Our party consisted of eight adults and three small children. The pool was warm and inviting and the beach was only two blocks away. A perfect location! Although we ate most of our meals out (lots of choices nearby) the kitchen was well equipped. Sandra recommended the Aruba Beach Cafe which ended up being one of our favorite restaurants. The house was one block from Publix and CVS so any items you may need are readily available. The house had a new washer and dryer that made laundry a breeze. There was a large selection of games that came in handy when we weren’t in the pool or at the beach. We played Guess Who with the grandchildren too many times to count!

If you’re looking for a vacation spot with all the amenities of home, Villa Pine is definitely a great choice. We had a fabulous week here with our children and their families. Thanks Sandra.

Owner's Response: You are most welcome! Nothing makes me happier than receiving reviews such as yours. It makes doing what I love THAT much easier! Arubas is a wonderful restaurant, ( my fave as well), for sure and yes, I have a good amount of games for those nights you don't feel like going out with the kids or rainy days along with lots of movies. Thanks again for picking my home and for making my day as far as you having a great time at my home. Hope to see you soon again!

Wonderful amenities!

  • 5 of 5

House was Great! Walking distance to publix, cvs, and dollar tree. Walking distance to beach with a cart to haul your beach gear. Everything you could ever need is included: beach chairs, toys, towels, masks.....ect. The kitchen was the best stocked kitchen we have ever stayed at. Plenty of towels, blankets, and pillows. The cutest downtown area and pier is within walking distance. A reef to snorkel was right off the beach. Amazing, quiet area. We will definitely be back. Sandra was a phone call away for ANYTHING we needed, even though nothing was needed because she had everything we could ever Want!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a perfect review. You pretty much described my home and Lauderdale by the Sea, to a T! The town IS charming and my location is perfect. If relaxing, peaceful and quaint with lots of things to do is what you are looking for, then this is the place for you. And as far as my home, yes, I do keep it well stocked as I lived there for many years with my children and just basically took my personal belongings and left everything else one could need, behind. Even an abundance of spices. I try to think of things I would want in a home with, ( or without), kids if I were to rent so therefore that is why there is pretty much everything, as you said. When it comes to my availability, I am reachable 24/7 if needed. I reside only 20 minutes away so its no bother at all to address any issues one may have. I like my guests to have a most memorable and easy vacation possible. Thank you again for a wonderful review and I hope to see you and your lovely family again at Villa Pine ;)

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely Lauderdale-by-the-Sea home from Dec. 4 to Dec. 13. The house is lovely decorated, in a nice and safe neighborhood, close to restaurants, groceries and just a few blocks from the beach. Sandra was an outstanding host, she answered all my calls and inquiries. We have been in the Fort Lauderdale area before, but this one was by far our best pick!! Thanks Sandra!!

A great relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 adults and 2 teenagers. This home was perfect for us. We celebrated Thanksgiving during our stay and had everything we needed to prepare our meal and have additional family join us. The store was a quick block away and the beach just down the street. We are already talking about when we can go back.

Sandra is quick to respond to any questions and was wonderful to work with. We will be returning! Thank you Sandra! P.S. I could go on and on.....the beach...amazing.
