About James VanDyken

Former farm boy (Wisconsin) who grew up on a dairy farm. Have lived in Florida for the past 7 years. Went to college in Iowa and managed country clubs.

James VanDyken purchased this house in 2008

Why James VanDyken chose Florida South East

Winter got the best of me and it was time to move to paradise after having vacationed many times here in South Florida. Sunshine, tropical vegetation, swinging in the hammock at poolside at any hour of the day or night.

What makes this house unique

Fell in love with this property 7 years ago with its oversized heated pool and friendly neighborhood.

It has great access to any location in Ft Lauderdale and only 12 minutes away from ft Lauderdale Airport!

just 2 minutes from Interstate 95.

This property was amazing ! Immaculate, well appointed and equipped with everything you might need !

  • 5 of 5

Spent the second week of Dec in this house. There were eight of us in our group and this house exceeded all of our expectations. Wether inside the house or gathered around the pool, there was plenty of room for all. Very comfortable ! The house is immaculate and very well equipped. Jim, the property owner, is a great host and always available to answer questions. I'd go there again in a heartbeat !

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this rental property. James was very friendly and helpful when we first arrived. The beach and pool toys gave my grandchildren a lot to keep busy with while in the pool. Even though the weather was warm and the pool was warmer than usual we always found ourselves gathered around the pool having fun. There were 8 of us and the accommodations were very comfortable and the house was very roomy. The location was about 20 mins to the beach. We would definitely consider this house again.

Pure Tropical Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely the most amazing vacation ever. The pictures on here just do not do this house justice! It's so big and airy, our family of 9 had no problem staying out of each others way. And the pool, is beautiful! And so big , I was actually suprised at the size. The landscaping around this house just makes it feel like a tropical paradise. Also the owner has fully stocked this house with almost everything you could possibly imagine. We really loved all the beach toys and chairs that were available for us. Also the owner Jim was so nice , he gave us all the neighborhood activities and best beach parking. I would definitely love to bring my famiy back next year.

IT WAS GREAT!!! - - TRIED! And can't even think of one bad thing to say!!!

  • 5 of 5

NEVER BEEN TO FLORIDA? That was me, trying to arrange plans for my wife, in-laws and her extended family and this was the place we could come back to at the end of each day to mellow out! The house had plenty of towels, linens, utensils in the kitchen, etc., and other accessories at this house; not just for your stay there, but also to take with you to the beach - - I mean coolers (blue ice is in the fridge!), beach towels, chairs, umbrellas... everything!!! It even had a washer and dryer!!!

HOSPITALITY OF OWNER: Jim was completely the nicest guy and so easy to deal with and even quickly showed up with a new propane can when the one on the barbecuer died.

OVERALL APPEARANCE: The pictures are exactly what you get, no surprises... and thats what we wanted; smooth sailing!!! One of the pluses of the property is that there is an outside shower next to the pool which is nice to rinse the chlorine off when you get out.

CLEANLINESS: ITS CLEAN!!! Probably one of my biggest fears is "How is it really going to be when you show up?" Well that fear never even came to the front of any of our minds because it was clean. No weird smells or creatures in the house (or around the beds or in them for that matter!) and that's what made us feel so comfortable there! IT TRULY WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND WOULDN'T HESITATE FOR ONE MOMENT TO RENT FROM JIM AGAIN!
