The easy walk to the beach, the beach chairs and umbrellas provided, were the best this place!
Not a very nice vacation rental at all. We were very disappointed! I can give details upon request.
Probably if you write an email to me as well I will know what problem you had after to have resolved the few issued you had. Thanks Sabrina
Fantastic little vacation home
The house was perfect for my fiancé and I. The pool was clean, the view from the back patio was beautiful day and night. The location is a walk away from 4 and 5 star resteraunts as well as the beaches. Highly recommended to anyone.
Thank you for your review! I am glad that you liked the cottage. Sabrina
ps. for future vacationer I moved this client from this property to another one that has a swimming pool. The yellow cottage doesn't have a swimming pool
We enjoyed our stay at the yellow cottage and would fefinetely return! Thank you Sabrina!
I am happy that you had a nice vacation
Excellent location steps from EVERYTHING including beach. Loud traffic noise, we got used to it
Although our week there was quite cold, we still took advantage of the quick stroll to the beach a few days. So close you could bring a loaded cooler, chairs, umbrella, etc and have no problems. It's right beside the paid parking lot for the beach, so you can't get much closer! And free handicap parking is almost on the sand if you have a permit.
There are so many great restaurants a quick walk away that we had a hard time taking advantage of the full kitchen. We tried the new Smoke BBQ place twice...very good! And noticed a lineup of over a hundred at the Greek Islands Restaurant one night. The locals we asked about it couldn't stop raving, so we went back and fell in love with it too. Nearby is sushi, Cuban, Italian, seafood, pubs, and fast food.
We probably didn't get full value for our rental car because we walked everywhere. We walked to the water taxi to take the intra-coastal to Hollywood Beach for the day ($26 each). It also goes to Las Olas where we've spent whole days exploring shops and galleries on previous trips. The main Ft Lauderdale beach strip is too far to walk if you want the crowds and touristy places, so we did drive there (paid parking) a couple times.
The "Cozy Yellow Cottage" itself comes as advertised. It's older and small for a detached home, since it is split into a duplex. If you plan to stay inside a lot, find a luxury condo hotel. If you plan to enjoy the sights of Fort Lauderdale, this is a great value IMO. A few improvements could be made like an upgraded kitchen, better soundproofing against the traffic and shared walls, furniture (very low), and more useful outdoor space, but that would certainly raise the rental value.
The beach was just undergoing "anti-erosion rehab" so there was heavy machinery laying fresh new beautiful white sand during the weekdays. We could still walk to another beach access point in the quiet upscale neighborhood, maybe 4 more blocks further south.
We really enjoyed our time at the cozy yellow cottage, and had no issues requiring maintenance or the property manager's intervention. But Sabrina was very responsive to my questions and gave us all the info we needed for check-in. If we weren't looking for a rental propert of our own in this exact area, we would certainly rent here again!
Tx for your nice review and for the suggestion. Sabrina
A nice comfortable place to stay near the beach and other amenities.
This was our first time using Homeaway so we were a little unsure if it would be a good experience. Booking through Sabrina was fast and easy. When we arrived there were a couple of small kitchen items we needed and after a quick text, Sabrina had them delivered straight away. There are 2 Units, we had the West Unit, next time we will try the East. We BBQd and made ourselves at home. The weather did not cooperate for us so we only had 2 days on the beach which is a safe 3 min walk from the house. There's a water taxi that has hop on hop off which we did for a day.
The grocery store is a short hike but all intersections have lights so no problem. The bus stops at the door and the taxi to the Airport was just $30. We texted Sabrina several times for general information and she was very helpful and recommended a Shopping Center within walking distance.
We felt very safe there and do recommend her place as a family friendly place to stay,
There's no pool but there is a big back yard.
I am glad that you had a nice time at Yellow Cottage.
I was little bit skeptical after to have read the 1 star review...instead surprising I had a very great vacation. The apartment is cute, pretty decorated, very clean and perfect for myself and my husband. We walked to the beach and to the shops near by. The kitchen is fully equipped, we had Wi-Fi and cable. The manager was easy to deal with since we booked this property online. I would recommend this property to whom looking for a simple and easy vacation.
