This beach house is a vacation dream paradise. Situated directly on the beach in the best part of Pompano beach, Light house point, in the prestigious Hillsboro shores neighborhood. This is the place for you if you love the beach, swimming in the pool, and spending your time jet skiing, paddle boarding, or kayaking that you can rent on the beach 5 minutes from the house. The house has a total of 4 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms downstairs, 2 of those bedrooms share a jack and jill bathroom, and the other has it's own bathroom. Each bedroom has a flat screen tv. The living room is bright and beautifully decorated. The upstairs master bedroom has a spectacular view of the ocean, his and hers closet, and it's own bathroom, it also have access to a private balcony where you can enjoy a sunrise breakfast in the morning or drinks at evening with the spectacular view. The house has a covered patio with lounging area and dining area for our guests to enjoy. The pool area has lounge chairs and a seated area for a relaxing outdoor experience. Access to the beach is over your own private bridge with a locked security gate leading to what we consider one of the most beautiful and secluded beach in Florida. . The pool is heated during the winter months(from December 15th to March 30th) and there is a barbque for our guests to use in the backyard. This house was build in the '60 and still has the 'bones' of an older home, but the interior was tastefully updated. The property is a true" beach house" with expected wear and tear from being on the ocean's sun and salt water. We would like to disclose that some of the smaller windows are older and do not open, and some outlets do not work, but this has not been a problem for all but one of our past guests. The pristine and quiet beach location more than makes up for it. If you are looking for a newly constructed home, this is not for you, but your family will enjoy spending time in this home as it is a true 'beach ' paradise.

The house was great and matched our needs perfectly.
Great place to get away with a group of friends. Can’t wait to go back.
A little disappointed!
This is my family's 4th VRBO rental experience and we were a little disappointed this time. Even though the owner clearly states the home is older and there is wear and tear from the age and the impacts from oceanfront, it was other things that are controllable that disappointed us during this vacation. There were 6 adults on this trip and were not happy about the living space being uncomfortable and not able to seat all 6 of us comfortably for movie nights. The TV was super small and older and the furnishing were not the best. I even had a bad experience with the couch--I broke it while sitting down one evening--the leg gave and I went down. I only weight 160ist--just saying. For one night we were all perched on the floor to squint at the TV. I called the owner and she was understanding of the broken couch.
The first night I had to call the owner around 10pm--my adult children said none of the shower were working yet the other water sources were fine. The owner stated that we just needed to pull really hard. My son, who is an engineer, stated he felt the pipes were going to pull through the wall if he pulled harder. Each morning it was a challenge for me to turn on the shower--I must be weak. The home has been updated except for the plumbing.
Also we were disappointed in the kitchen stock of supplies. Other homes we have rented have had top notch dishes and cookware. We struggled to have enough pans and silverware for the 6 of us. Also there is not inside dining for 6 of us--we had to sit in the living room. The outside was disappointing because the picture were so inviting and the outdoor furnishing were not as lavish as the pictures. We did however enjoy the pool and watching the Iguanas.
The grill is small and could be updated. Again, other VRBO homes had REALLY nice grills. Yes the location of the home is good, however we are beach goer experts and we did not like the beach at all! Too much seaweed and the water was a brownish green and we only got in once. The boys did love fishing in it though. I also did not love that we could not see the beach from the foliage blocking the view. I knew it was going to be like that and though it would be ok but found myself disappointed. If I am going to pay top notch for a beach home I want to SEE the beach when enjoying the outside time. Also there were critters in the walls that the owner had to deal with when we left. My son heard the sounds and thought it was haunted.
I'm sorry the home was not up to your standards. The beach is usually very beautiful but there has been a lot of seaweed this summer due to the change in water temperature. The city of pompano beach cleans the beach every morning (weather permitting) The dining table does have four chairs but there are four more in the garage for larger parties (the table can easily accommodate 8). The couch leg did break (not sure how)but the leg is only 4"" tall. A repair man was sent immediately and could not repair it completely. The client failed to mention that the couch was replaced with a new one the following morning. We constantly strive to keep our tenants happy, we address every issue or complaint immediately The house is older but in a fabulous location, nestled between 5 million dollar plus homes. Unfortunately, I believe this client was upset mostly with the seaweed and decided to pick the rest of the home apart. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this property. Thank you for reading. .
Nice location but roof leaks and house needs ALOT work!
The location is wonderful...but don't believe the note that the Fort Lauderdale Airport is 10 miles away..it is really over 20 miles and all my friends paid big $$$$ to Uber to get there! I was SOOOO embarrassed that I told them it was only 10 miles as it said in the house description. They REALLY need to tell the truth! I have tons of photos...
The house needs a lot of work, I believe it's on the market to sell to tear down so I think they are not putting any money in upkeep....just to take in $$$ till they do. We had a lot of rain and the back patio/pool area has a nice sitting area but the roof POURED water so badly it soaked all the cushions, furniture and our shoes/towels etc.. and was unusable for most of the time there which was a big loss! The garage area where the extra refrigerator and washer/dryer are kept also leaked...I slipped a fell on a pool of water from the leaking roof there too! The pool floats are old, broken and filthly!
I suggested the very expensive housekeeper fee should do a much better job cleaning and someone needs to check up on what is done. We all wiped down EVERYTHING...yuck! We did enjoy the dozens Iguana's who hung out on the dock...very cool! The guest rooms should have shades that work and I suggest that in the room w/two single beds should have a small folding screen that you could put between the beds... would be a nice touch of privacy. The TV in the Living room is very small and the kitchen could use some presentable dishes...it is a mish-mash of odds and ends. Not up to the price they are charging. We were very disappointed in the beach as it had stormed the seaweed was sooo thick you could not even walk on the beach much less swim or lay on the sand...it stank really bad! You could see down the cove that they had machines to clean up but not on our beach area. I contacted Samantha who you are lead to believe own's the house but is in-fact an agent/manager about all the leaking etc...and she very kindly gave me back a few hundred dollars but I would have rather had the property that was promised than the refund! They are charging TOP DOLLAR but it's for the location only...we would love to return BUT only after all the issues are resolved. I would not have written ANY review but they kept sending emails over and over...so here it is! Good location but needs A LOT of work to make it worth the money.
This client stayed at the house for a full 5 days (out of a 6 day stay) before she contacted me to complain about some of those issues. It was unfortunate that it rained that week the whole time they were here, it was an unusual beginning of our rainy season and I am sure that was not fun while on their vacation, but it happens sometimes here in Florida. I was not aware of the leaks as the rainy season just started and by the time she called me to tell me about it, she was leaving the next day, so there was nothing I could have done at that point to fix the situation before they left the next morning. Since their departure, we have fixed the outside patio roof leaks. She complains here about the cleanliness of the house, and yet never called me once during her stay to ask for the maids to come back or anything. If she had called me upon arrival, I would have been more than happy to send the cleaning crew back to clean whatever she thought was not properly done. I am a little confused about the airport/drive comment, as she never asked me how far was the airport from the house, but when anyone ask me I always say it is about 35 minutes away from Fort Lauderdale airport, a uber charges around $30. If you read our house description I have always been honest about the house being older, and that you are paying for the fantastic location which you will never find anything else on the beach with a pool at this price between south beach and Palm beach. It clearly says on our page that I am the property manager and not the owner, so again, I am not sure why she thought otherwise. I am sorry that this client was not completely happy with her stay, but I wished she would have called me and given me a chance to come and take care of those issues while she was there at the property and not just asking for money back after the fact.
Property Needs Some Love
We stayed for a week at this vacation rental during Spring Break week. The location is fantastic - great beach, walkway and pool areas. The house itself really needs some love. The outside is quite run down with several weird things hanging, detached or just simply falling apart. The carpeted areas of the home are very stained and old-looking. Windows and window coverings were hooked with "bread ties" in a few places and the blinds fell apart on us in one bedroom. The bathrooms were clean but very outdated with finicky plumbing. Since we spent most of our time at the beach or pool it was a good rental for being outside but the house itself is in poor condition.
As it clearly says in our property's description on the website, this house is old and the outside has a lot of wear and tear from being on the beach, and what you are truly getting is a fantastic beach location that you cannot find anywhere else for this price. We recently cleaned the upstairs carpet and have addressed any plumbing issues.
Lovely beach oasis
We enjoyed our stay at Samantha’s Home. It was the ONLY property that I could find that was beachfront while also offering a pool. The home is well stocked with anything you could need from a grill to cooking supplies to towels to a baby high chair. The home is also close to grocery stores, restaurants, and more (the liquor store even delivers which is a plus). Similar to a few other reviews, I do suggest a fresh coat of paint to the exterior, as well as some trim work, and then the exterior of the home will be on par with the lovely updates they’ve done inside.
All 4 bedrooms are spacious, especially the HUGE master on the upper level which has 2 large walk in closets and a deck with a fabulous view of the ocean and palm trees.
We stayed at the Bay Drive property March 2018. The house is very clean and has everything you need. We were so happy with the pool and access to the beach we all decided we'd stay here again. Owner is very easy to work with and answered all of our questions before, during and after our stay. The sunrises were amazing every morning! This was the perfect getaway from our Minnesota winter!
