About Judy

Growing up in the Carolina's, I enjoyed visiting my grandmother in South Florida. I always loved the warm, sunny, tropical climate! After completing school, I moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1980. It was the beginning of a 29 year career as a flight attendant for a major airline. Recently retired from the airline industry, I enjoy being at home and maintaining a beautiful cottage style home and my guest.

I have a passion for decorating and gardening!

I've really enjoyed meeting some terrific people through my VRBO experience. I look forward to meeting you!

I've lived and visited so many places during my life but somehow always found myself returning to the place I call home, Lauderdale By The Sea, Florida. It just feels good....

Why Judy chose Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

Why stay in a hotel or condominium building when you can have your own private place with only two units on the property?? Lauderdale By The Sea (LBTS) is a walking community. Every morning neighbors are out walking, enjoying their morning coffee, breakfast on the pier, beach, boating, shopping and just enjoying the simple things in life! It's rated one of the safest communities in Florida. It's peaceful with a wonderful ocean breeze! I love living here! It's such a unique coastal town with so much charm.....

The property is located in a quite area on the north side of Commercial Blvd. One block to Publix Grocery store, 3 blocks to beach, shops and restaurants. Las Olas Blvd. is a quick 10 minute drive down A1A.

What makes this apartment unique

This property has only two units. I take great pride in my property and want you to be as comfortable as you are in your own home. You will find everything you need and more! It's not your typical rental! Please read all my wonderful reviews from tenants.

At night the property comes alive with landscaping lighting! Take a night swim under the stars while enjoying cocktails & poolside BBQ. This property isn't just a rental, it's your home away from home! It's a Happy place!! You won't be disappointed!

Jump on the water taxi and cruise the Intracoastal Waterway sightseeing. There are bike rentals nearby, Publix grocery store and shopping center 1 block away. LBTS has it's own fishing pier with restaurant. It's easy to vacation here without a car.

Most folks return year after year for their annual vacation in Lauderdale By The Sea. I'm very pleased they choose my home to be my guest again....

Lauderdale By the Sea is a very well sought after community. The town is full of beachside charm. LBTS has just completed a major face-lift costing millions of dollars. Their plans included more side walk cafes, live entertainment, upscale shops, wider sidewalks, beach area seating, landscaping and much more for everyone to enjoy! We have a Farmer's Market monthly at Town Hall and free dance lessons at the LBTS Pavilion every Sunday during the season.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

In our second stay in this wonderful vacation residence everything was to the highest standard. Items provided in the kitchen, lounge, bedroom and shower room could not have been bettered, the quality of which was exceptionally high. Judy, our hostess, is to be congratulated on her attention to detail. Similarly her Pool and surrounding areas were immaculate, well in keeping with this superb residence.

Thanks Judy, we're already planning a third visit !

A Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this wonderful property for a week. The apartment is absolutely gorgeous and updated. We felt as though we were staying at our own private beach house. The property is a duplex so the pool and deck is shared but the apartment is completely private with its own entrance. The kitchen was fully equipped, the shower in the bathroom is huge, and the bedroom and living/dining area are all spacious. The beach is just a short walk away as were all the restaurants and shops of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Beach chairs and umbrellas were provided. And although we didn't need it, there was a full size laundry at our disposal. The owner is extremely warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. We had breakfast on the pool deck almost every morning. This is the sort of property you want to return to again and again. I highly recommend it!

Very Nice Cottage & Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy this fully equipped cottage and pool with restaurants, shops, beaches and grocery store all within easy walking distance. The cottage is immaculate and all amenities are available at your fingertips. After a day at the beach, walking, biking and shopping, you come back to your own private pool to relax and enjoy, then grill out at your leisure. Judy is the best host/owner and has thought of everything you might need. We will be back next year!

Can't wait to visit Sunnyside Up again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying at this property and it is exactly as advertised. It was very comfortable. The decor was that of a beach cottage. Everything we needed was nearby. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a quaint location that is quiet and near the beach. The owner Judy was very hospitable and I felt like I have known her all my life. We have rented many Homeaway and VRBO properties and this one was one of the best. I would highly recommend.
