About The house's owner

I am a French guy (nobody is perfect !) who relocated to Florida 8 years ago. My passion is boating and I am working in Real Estate ( as a Realtor and Investor). Life is too short and I do my best to be grateful and enjoy each minute of it : We Only Live Once ! (WOLO , name of my boat :-)).

My partner (a pure New Yorker ) and I got married in June 2015 .We live between our condo in South Beach and the house in Fort Lauderdale.

The house's owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The house's owner chose Downtown

You can not beat the location (best kept secret of Fort lauderdale :-)) , the house is furnished with taste with tons of light and the views are amazing (river/pool/palm trees).I keep a 21 foot runaboat at the house's private dock.

The house is in a residential (only single family homes ), secure, trendy and quiet neighborhood (no outlet road). The house is overlooking Wilton Manors, close to everything. The house is tastefully furnished , I am a mid-century modern lover :-)

What makes this house unique

Tropical eden in a central location. Beautiful salted water and heated pool on the river. Stylish upscale waterfront property where you will feel serene and at home. Secure and residential neighborhood (only single family homes ).

The house has plenty of light, with impact/hurricane glass sliding doors + windows (all equipped with screens) opening on the pool / dock.The house is furnished with high end furniture and vintage pieces. , all the mattresses are excellent quality (firm), all king size , all white bed linens, duvet and duvet cover, mattress and pillows protector, Frette towels.

A Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We're so glad we found this place. It's simply fantastic.

Stephane met us at the property and showed us around pointing out where everything was and answering any questions we had. The house is well decorated and the listing was very accurate as to what is included.

Stephane is meticulous in providing a clean well maintained house. You can tell his pays attention to detail. Customer Service is perfect too. Stephane was quick to answer any questions we had during our stay.

The back yard area is wonderful. There is a nice breeze coming off the river and pool is very inviting. It's quiet and just a nice place to relax.

We loved the location too. Very convenient to everything. The highway, shopping, Whole Foods, the beaches and more are just minutes away.

I highly recommend this to anyone coming to Ft. Lauderdale. Those nine days flew by too quicky...

Quiet paradise in the middle of Fort Lauderdale !

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house for 4 weeks during the holiday. Fantastic location we met the owner after a long trip from canada. We arrived in the mid afternoon and the house was ready for us. We tour the property with the owner and everything look even better than the pictures on the website. Superb pool, beautiful landscape and well decorated interior. New mattress were just purchase by the owner and the bathroom was freshly renovated !

The kitchen was truly fully equip, i always travel to a vacation rental with my favorite kitchen tool. In this case it was not necessary, the kitchen had everything i needed.We enjoy the yard with quality outdoor furniture and super size pool heated to our liking.We also took the kayaks for a few nice discovery trips of Fort Lauderdale's canals.

The weather this year was fabulous so we spend a good amount of time outdoor. Good location in the middle of Fort Lauderdale easy access to restaurant and shopping, Coral Shores is a small quiet community with only two access, it felt secure to walk on the street even late at night. Love it so much, we rented the house for the same period next year. See you soon Fort Lauderdale.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We can only agree with everything Guy and Alain wrote. From the very beginning, with communication with the owner and then our arrival until the minute we left, everything was excellent. Not only of course the owner's service and help but also the house itself and its location. Peaceful and at the same time close to shops and the beach. For us, this was a perfect week and highly recommendable.
