Property description

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will take place this year from November 3-November 7, 2016. We are offering a special flat rate pricing for this event. To make your stay special and easy, we will offer early check-in and late check-out. We are also dog friendly. About at 20 minute walk to the event, 10 minutes by bicycle, or even accessible by electric cart, which services our area, you can enjoy your stay at the boat show without the need for a car. Please contact us directly for pricing and information regarding this special flat rate pricing.

Imagine yourself nestled among the trees, mansions and cottages of historical Victoria Park. Indulge in extravagance and slip into our multi jet hot tub after your day at the beach. Perhaps even have a look out of the parrots that have made residence in Victoria Park. You have found your perfect vacation villa. Just a five minute walk from the shops and restaurants of historical Las Olas Boulevard and a 20 minute walk along the tree lined streets and waterways of Las Olas to the beach, this loft style home is the perfect vacation rental. This 2/2 features cathedral, wood ceilings, with an en suite, loft style, master bedroom, with views of tree lined streets, and Key West style homes. The master bedroom can be accessed by the spiral staircase, and overlooks the living room. The second bedroom that opens directly out onto the private courtyard has it's own full bathroom down the hall. The intracostal waterway is just 2 blocks away in the quaint Victoria Park. Try paddle boarding lessons, bring a picnic or even have a wedding in the romantic Victoria Park Gazebo. Easy access to the water taxi, bus, or simply walking to nearby destinations means you can easily leave your car behind. Check our link below for nightlife activities on the beach or Las Olas Boulevard. The nightlife district of Wilton Manors is only minutes away by taxi. Take a self guided walking tour of the historical homes of Victoria Park, or enjoy a glass of wine on the private courtyard patio. The house features a fully stocked kitchen, and a dining room for 6 guests as well as an outside dining area in the courtyard. Please note that if you book 28 nights or more, we will adjust your rate to the lower *monthly rate* at the time of booking, and prorate this amount for your full stay. We are a private home which is licensed as a vacation rental and are possession of a Florida Resort Dwelling License and fully insured to make sure that your vacation is hassle free. Broward County Tourist Development Tax and State Lodging Tax for rentals of less than 6 months apply.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My name is Andrew Wright and I have been a flight attendant for a major US airline for more than 20 years and understand the needs and desires of the traveler. I was born and raised in the Fort Lauderdale area and can easily guide you to shopping, entertainment and those hidden gems that the tour books overlook. My partner Roberto and I purchased and remodeled the house in 2011.

Why the Owner Chose East Fort Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA:
This is one of the most desireable areas of Fort Lauderdale, with historical homes, tree lined streets and easy access to the beach and the activites on Las Olas Boulevard and Wilton Manors. I grew up in the South Florida area and always dreamed of having a home in the Victoria Park area. This was the fullfilment of a dream.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
There is no need for a car in this area. The water taxi is only a short walk away. Picnic in the Colee Hamock park, by the intracostal waterway and just watch the boats go by. Walk to the boat rental area for a day out, or simply continue to the beach. First class dining is also just a walk away. The Galaria shopping mall can also be easily accessed by foot. Wilton Manors night life is just minutes away. Perfect for Christmas on Las Olas or the annual Fort Lauderdale Winterfest boat parade, or the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, simply walk to the intracostal, #VictoriaPark #FortLauderdaleInternationalBoatShow #WinterfestBoatParade #WiltonManors #FortLauderdale #LasOlas #LasOlasBoulevard #FortLauderdaleBeaches #PortEverglades #HistoricalFortLauderdale #IntracoastalWaterway #FortLauderdaleInternationalBoatShow2016
