Why Real Estate Gizmo chose Coral Ridge
Welcome to Villa Riverside, a luxury 2-story vacation home rental by Real Estate Gizmo. Newly renovated (May 2018). This wonderful waterfront villa is situated on a cul-de-sac in the residential section of Fort Lauderdale, and only 5 minutes from the famous Fort Lauderdale beach. Walk to the Galleria Mall, the beach, restaurants and shops. The home is also near all the main attractions such as art galleries, museums, and just across from the Intracoastal Waterway and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, an oasis of tropical hammocks. This is your own tropical paradise in the wonderful city of Fort Lauderdale, where the excitement never ends.
What makes this House unique
Upon entering Villa Riverside, you are greeted by a spacious foyer entryway revealing, from the moment you step inside this home, a spectacular open floor plan featuring direct view of the waterways and canal, the large outdoor area with heated pool & spa. A perfect place for outdoor dining and entertaining. Floor to ceiling windows in the living room let in the light and frame the views of the water, and brings in the wonderful tropical sunlight of South Florida.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
STAY AWAY! Absolute Nightmare of Stay. Zero credit, zero apologies
DO NOT RENT FROM THIS GUY! This was one of those awful vacation stories you hear about renting from people... I am telling you, and we were the second person to ever rent from them here so whatever previous reviews there are they're not real.
This was a nightmare from the beginning to the end. The biggest issue is the owner just doesn't seem to have your best interest in mind. Don't fly down from another state and risk staying here. There's SO MANY other places to stay.
Here's a list of what went wrong:
They didn't have the code right to open the door for a good two hours once we got there
Wi-Fi didn't work because they misspelled it on the sheet and told us it was our fault
Hot tub didn't work for two of the days out of three even though three people came to work on it (which was a big reason we booked this place)
Two men entered the backyard to "hangout with the pool guy" because they thought our rental was his truck... these were not guys you wanted in your yard. Thank god it was just my friends back there and not my wife and kids
The pool guy who came the next day told us he was homeless, living in his car and asked us for money and wouldn't leave. It was almost to calling the police bad
The owner told me he was sick and tired of me calling with problems (how dare I)
The owner walked into the property the morning of check out BEFORE check out! And then told us we needed to get out because he had other people renting
A bunch of the furniture fell apart, two beds, two pictures, the water faucets are all messed up
So much of the pictures are outside, and it's nice don't get me wrong, but the rest of the house is inadequate
Oh.... and he asked to rent directly through him without VRBO - thank god I didn't do that
I tried doing a charge back, and the owner text me telling me I was ugly (nice one, we actually had a good laugh about it) and how awful a person I WAS!
Don't worry, he'll say there was a noise complaint. There was, at 10:15 PM and we immediately went inside... my apologies for being wild on a relaxing vacation (it was three friends laughing, not that serious).
DO NOT RENT HERE... there's too many other places where you won't be hassled. Just don't risk a vacation going to this place. It's just not worth it.
Thanks for the comments. The true story of events is different.
This excellent and very popular vacation home is newly remodeled and inspected before each arrival. The WiFi and the Hot Tub worked prefect. The guests did not read the complete turn-on instructions and needed assistance, which was provided to them by our maintenance staff several times. All beds were functioning at time of check-in, as well as there were no broken pictures or faucets.
While renting a Vacation Home, it is important to adhere to the Broward County Ordinances for Vacation Rentals. The contract agreement with information is attached to the reservation and accepted at time of booking, as well as clearly noted in the welcome letter and in the house binder. One of the paragraphs is regarding noise ordinance with "Quite Hours between 10:00PM to 7:00AM.
The official check-out time is 10:00AM as stated in all communication with the guest. Guests were still in bed at this time, when management company arrived to check-out and inspect the house. The management company has the right to access the property without notice, but will always knock or ring the bell first.
If addition, if a vacation rental guest encounter a non-invited person at the property, they can always call the authorities to report this.
Our company strives to make our guests happy and comfortable during their vacation, and guests can contact the management 24/7. Any reported issues are dealt with during their stay, if reported. Our guests usually enjoy their vacation in our nice and private vacation homes, and we look forward to see them back on their next vacation. Sadly these guests did not appreciate this home and their vacation, and they should clearly stay somewhere else on their next vacation.
Beautiful property. Very clean and perfect for large group. You must be inside by 10 pm as neighbors across canal will call police for noise violation Exterior bbq, hot tub and pool also lovely
Thank you for taking your time to send your comments. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our popular and beautiful vacation home.
The City of Fort Lauderdale's Ordinance list a 10:00PM quiet hours for outdoors, and all guests in vacation homes must obey this law. Unfortunately we have no control over the neighbors.
We hope to see you again in one of our beautiful vacation homes. We offer many different waterfront homes of different categories. Welcome back to Sunny Fort Lauderdale!
Great Multi generational Family Vacation
Great property for our family Christmas vacation Lots of room for everyone and grandkids really enjoyed new pool and spa in backyard Close to groceries galleria mall and many great restaurants
Our only suggestion is better stocking of home Only 1 hairdryer, no kitchen towels or cloths, limited hangers no oven mitts measuring cups or spoons, no coffee filters etc Small things which make it easier with a family and kids.
