Guestbook comments from the owner

Access to the rental was very easy and convenient! All of the bedding and linens were fresh and clean and the unit was in good condition. Very nice large TV. Great shower pressure! We ate at the restaurant in the lobby which was very good! The unit is walking distance to the very quaint area of Lauderdale by the sea and also close to a great bakery called panne dolci on oakland park blvd. The # 11 or #36 bus can be caught across the street on A1A and make getting downtown a breeze! The elevators in the building are very fast and access to the beach is so easy! The public halls of the building are clean and quiet! A grocery store is only a couple blocks away, we bought some fruit and breakfast food and some tv dinners to have as snacks in the room! The room is not very large but the host makes excellent use of all of the space. I have only good things to say! Chris also checked in via the airbnb website to make sure everything was ok with our stay!

Small, but cozy for 2. Clean

  • 4 of 5

Small apartment but conveniently located. Walking distance to Lauderdale by the Sea with restaurants, bars & a few shops. Only downfall is Everything is very costly and lots of added fees. Unable to checkout right at 11 due to late departure and was charged over half of a night’s cost to stay for 2 additional hours.

Great location and friendly staff! Lacks the amenities of a hotel room but good overall.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful setting and lovely views. Private beach is a huge plus. Inexpensive valet parking makes it so much easier to come and go.

Nice building with lots of ocean. Hotel had stopped racking seaweed so a bit smelly as there was lots this week. Adds to the atmosphere. If you wanted a lounge chair by the pool you needed to put a towel on one by 9:30, lots taken. I would say again.

Came here for a spring break get away with some friends. It was PERFECT for our 6 person crew. Perfect location to beach, shops, & tiki. Start was awesome. Very strict on shoes being worn to beach but understandable. Room was awesome & had everything we needed & more. Chris was also very helpful getting info on the room. Valet & tiki workers, even security were great. Would definitely recommend & did not want to leave!

February week stay 2017

  • 5 of 5

First the good- nice and clean and comfortable room. Location was wonderful and the hotel, Tiki bar, beach and within walking distance of many great stores/restaurants, etc

Consideration for improvement (suggestion and let me state up front that I would stay there again), probably nothing you can do however the elevators were painfully slow at times. Secondly, while I have no problems with a security deposit I do question why shortly after we left I was not informed that all was well with the way we left it (damn near as clean as when we got there) and assuming that why after all this time my security deposit has not appeared (2 weeks, 10 working days.

Again, lovely place and would recommend it to anyone so please don't take the suggestions as more than that.

Had a little trouble with getting in room, and a little frustrating since we paid for early check in. After emailing Chris our dilemma someone appeared out of no where and assisted us with getting into our room
