                                                          Nice place to unwind

                                                          Mike S.

                                                          Being on the canal was great. My son bounced back and forth between fishing off the dock and swimming in the pool. The proximity to downtown and also highways was perfect. The house has pretty much whatever you might need which was helpful. If I had to nit-pick, Id say a little maintenance is needed (broken kitchen counter tiles, light switch plates, and worn towels and linens, bbq grill). However, Anthony is very communicative, down to earth and im sure will take care of these minor things. All in all, we had a good time.

                                                          Beautiful home with great location

                                                          Jose C.

                                                          Quite neighborhood with all the amenities needed to feel at home

                                                          Charming home with beautiful outdoor sitting

                                                          Dania M.New Jersey

                                                          This home is perfect for a smaller group. We came down for a girls trip and we loved it. The house was clean and we loved the outdoor sitting area by the pool and canal. Anthony was great, very helpful and always available to communicate with. The house is close enough driving to beaches and other local attractions.

                                                          Wonderful Vacation

                                                          Michelle H.

                                                          The house was a great rental! We were a short drive from Beaches & resturants. We spent most of our time in the pool. The house was just the right size for our family of 4! There was a Canoe & a Kayak available too! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The grocery store was a short drive away. This was one of our Best Vacations. Anthony was quick to reply to any questions we had!

                                                          Nice view little comfort

                                                          Pablo C.

                                                          The place is ideal for rest. The house is very nice but lacked some comfort to vacation a family of 6 to 8 people. Beds are too small to sleep 2 people. The dining table is only for 4 people being that we were a family of 6 and also missing chairs. We had a problem with the floor of the room that was swollen from a leak of water which had to walk very carefully and the door of not closed, this generated during the stay maintenance staff came repeatedly to relieve the work.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Since this is my first negative review in roughly 4 years, I feel compelled to respond. If you read the house description, it tells you exactly how many beds and what size beds they are. The pictures and description are exactly what you get when you walk in the house. There is 1 Queen in the master, 1 full in bedroom # 2 and a trundle (pirate bed) with 2 single beds in bedroom #3. There is also a full size futon in bedroom #3. When you try to squeeze a family of 8 into a house that comfortably sleeps 4-6, of course you are going to be limited on space. The dining table inside seats 4, exactly as pictured in the listing. So does the table outside, but I'm getting a new one this week that sits 6.

                                                          Yes - we had an unfortunate situation where the AC leaked into to the wood floor and the wood buckled. I offered the family another one of my vacation rental houses to stay at or a full refund with a hotel stay. The declined and wanted to stay at the house. it wasn't very bad, but something that I had to address. To give me 2 stars in completely unwarranted, and I want those who are interested in the house to know that.

                                                          Fun family get together

                                                          Marc B.

                                                          Nice clean property at a reasonable price. We had all we needed. Nice common living space and comfortable rooms. Not far from i95 but nevertheless in a peaceful neighborhood. Nice pool. Although it is not heated, we still enjoyed some time in the water. The air conditioning system had electronic control issues , but owner addressed promptly. Would recommend it to a friend.

                                                          The Kayak and Canoe is included with the house! Take them on a short ride down the inter-coastal canal to the marina and have lunch or dinner at Rendezvous Waterfront Bar and Grill! One of the best hidden secrets in Ft. Lauderdale. Also, there is a park across the street from the house.
