Why Bill Lone chose Florida South East

We live very close by and love the area. Broward County, Greater Fort Lauderdale, is known as the Venice of the U.S.. Between Blue Wave beaches and exotic Everglades lie countless ways to play in Greater Fort Lauderdale, including kid-friendly attractions and sightseeing cruises, water sports and more.

Just minutes from the beach is the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District in downtown Fort Lauderdale, home to cultural attractions, shops, parks and restaurants. Along Riverwalk, the brick-lined meandering promenade, discover the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Museum of Discovery and Science with its AutoNation 3D IMAX Theater, Florida Grand Opera, Fort Lauderdale Historical Center, Stranahan House and the Museum of Art.

Perfect vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and spacious and had everything we needed.

The pool was great, as was the outdoor space. We were close to everything and the neighborhood was nice and quiet. The only suggestion we have is to change the pull out day bed into an actual full size bed.

We had a wonderful vacation and would stay here again! Thanks to the wonderful owners!

Perfect Summer

  • 5 of 5

Dear Bill and family

Thanks for a fantastic holiday in your beautiful home, everything was so perfect that will make you want to extend your stay forever.

My son says when we arrive (is this a dream) and it describes very well.

Lounging couch and chairs and complete entertainment center for both TV, movies and music. Sink into a night of pleasurable rest watching a movie there are new flat screens in the living room and 2 bedrooms. You will be updated and ready to start your day every morning.

A place you can truly come back after a night out and relax and enjoy.

The salt water pool was amazing My son was so much in the pool He looked like Jacques Cousteau all day

Bill Lone is a fantastic owner.Thanks Bill and famely for making Our stay sow much better. Definitely one of the best rental experiences we have ever had!

Great house for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Fourth of July and had a great time! The salt water pool was amazing, couldn't keep the kids out, which was great! The neighborhood is quiet and safe and just a 5 minute drive to the beach, which is great, there are bath houses and a great park for kids and plenty of parking. The house is clean and well stocked with everything you could need, and there are numerous grocery stores close by. Bill Lone is a fantastic owner, very responsive to inquiries and will make sure you are happy. Definitely one of the best rental experiences we have ever had!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect and cozy for vacation. Everything is close by for all you needs. The house itself had everything you need. Couldn't ask for more. The owner messaged me a few times to see how everything is going. Most owners don't do that. I would highly recommend this property and will return again! Thank you again Mr. Lone

Exactly As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home with very helpful and friendly owners/property managers. We styed here from the 4th thru the 8th of May. We brought our 25ft boat with us as well. The dock accommodated our boat well and the driveway was plenty big enough to hold my truck and the boat trailer. After reading reviews of homes in and around the area we decided to bring extra items with us such as paper plates, toilet paper, napkins ect. Needless to say we took most of this stuff home with us. There are plenty of spare towels, pillows and blankets if needed. The television has tons of channels but we never really turned it on because we spent all of our time grilling by the pool or on the boat. The neighbors are full time residents and are super friendly. The only suggestion Id have for potential renters is , if you are over 6ft tall watch your head around those ceiling fans on the back porch. I am 6'4" and my brother is nearly as tall as I am and they got both of us a time or two. Just make sure to keep the tables under them and it isn't even an issue. We will definitely stay here again. Mr Lone was the best owner I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with and his home is all that it is advertised.
