Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Beachfront Property

Welcome to Center Beach and thank you for visiting us! Our stunning 4 bedroom and 4 bath (2 master suites) beach house is 140 yards from tropical Fort Lauderdale Beach. When not at the beach enjoy our newly designed waterfall pool and 8 person spa. We named our home Center Beach because it is located on Center Avenue, steps to beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach. Fort Lauderdale is near and dear to our hearts as we lived there for many years and have many family and friends there. After moving to Nashville and missing Fort Lauderdale Beach, Center Beach is now our vacation home. We invite you to make Center Beach your home away from home....we know you will enjoy it!

We have had the good fortune of staying in many five star hotels and resorts such as the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons and Little Palm Island in the Florida Keys. These places have had a strong influence on how we designed Center Beach from the bed linens and mattresses to the kitchen to the outdoor pool and spa. Center Beach can sleep 10 comfortably in the 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

We invite you to relax outside on the beautiful and tropical patio. The patio is covered with high hat lighting. There is a 55 inch LCD TV in the patio to enjoy the game. The pool has a barrier fence to protect the little ones and can be removed upon request. The large 8 person hot tub has two 30 inch spill over waterfalls into the pool. If you are in the mood for grilling out, there is a Weber Natural Gas Grill. The patio is excellent for entertaining, as there is ample patio furniture.

Escape after a long sun filled day to the upstairs Master Suite. The king size bed with the mattress and linens of the highest-quality.... comparable to 5 star hotels. The room is equipped with a 42 inch Plasma TV with a smart remote. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone/iPad. Walk-in closet is spacious and organized with hangars, shelves and two luggage racks. The bathroom has a dual vanity, walk in shower and free standing soaking tub.

Second Master Suite is tucked away downstairs. This very spacious bedroom has a king size bed with a high-quality mattress and linens. It is equipped with a 42 inch Plasma TV. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone. The very large walk-in closet is organized with hangars, shelves and a luggage rack. There is a nice private bathroom with a combination shower and tub.

The upstairs Guest Bedroom has two very comfortable queen size beds with high-quality mattresses and linens. This large bedroom has a 30 inch Plasma TV. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone. Closet is organized with hangars, shelves and a luggage rack. The private full bathroom has a shower.

The downstairs Guest/Office bedroom has a daybed with trundle with two single high-quality mattresses and linens. This room has a desk and a Plasma TV. There is a clock to where you can play and charge your iPod/ iPhone. The full bathroom has a shower.

The beautiful dining room table can seat 8 and an additional 4 can be seated at the counter. While having dinner you can overlook the beautiful pool and hear the waterfalls.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances. There are four counter stools. For the chef, there are full sets of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, silverware, etc.

The downstairs living room has a 55 inch Plasma TV with a sound bar. There is a leather sofa and cocktail tables.

The upstairs living area has a 50 inch Plasma TV. Bring your Xbox / Playstation for the kids and movies to play on the Blue Ray.

Beautiful house with pool and hot tub - great location - just steps to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Group of 10 women and we all loved this place! Very clean and up to date. The space is amazing - plenty of room for everyone.

The outdoor area is great - pool and hot tub amazing. Would suggest at least a couple more lounge chairs around the pool - just two there now.

The beach is just yards away down the quiet street. Some beach gear is supplied but fell short of accommodating our group.

We had just a few minor issues but Ron (site manager) was just steps away and responded immediately to our needs! Would suggest a few 'do it yourself' supplies on hand - batteries for smoke alarms and/or remotes.

Laundry room is well equipped and very handy! Bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. Four bathrooms is key with a variety of bath or shower options. Supplying plungers in each bathroom may be a good idea 😉 along with backup toilet paper supply (10 women commenting on that one).

Location couldn't be better. Within walking distance to some bar, restaurant and retail areas otherwise a short Uber ride made getting anywhere easy.

All in all we had an amazing 5 days and 4 nights at this property. Thank you Ron for being delightful to these '10 cackling women'!! Thank you to the Gray's for sharing your property with us!

We will definitely recommend and may even be back!

Wife's birthday celebration

We had a wonderful time at the house which is very close to the beach. The owner was always willing to help. I'd highly recommend to book this house and the use of Home Away application.

Very Close to being as Advertised!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the stay very much. Pool, cabana and location to the beach made it especially memorable. Bedrooms were very large and comfortable. Appreciated the large sub-zero refrigerator! It looks as if attention to the fine details have been overlooked. Several of the " stocked" kitchen items need to be replaced. Spices on spice rack are very stale & probably months if not years old! Repairs need to be attended to. Dining room chair ; great room sofa all need attention. Cleaning crew has to work on the front of the stanilesss steel dishwasher! But, the bottom line is that we were all very happy with the property!

Owner's Response: Hi Maryanne: Thank you for the constructive feedback and the nice words. We will definitely do a thorough inspection of the kitchen. Yes, the spices have been in there a while. We will check out all the furniture as well. Very glad you enjoyed your stay. All the best, Toby

good deal!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented in Ft Lauderdale seven times in the last 6 years. We visit family each year. This is the ideal neighborhood if you like the beach because you don't have to cross the A1A. The beach is 100 meters away! The house is well maintained and, its true, Ron Rusian is the perfect manager /neighbor. We had no worries. From renting the house without even having to talk to Toby until a couple days before we arrived. to entering late 10 at night-- without a hitch. Just great. The house is really nice as you can see in the pictures. This rental is a good value. Its true it is not as luxurious as rentals twice as much but the beds are good and the bedrooms are large except for the one with the trundle beds where my 6 year old grandsons slept. But it was fine. They liked it. Again Ron was great. He helped us out and even cut a branch off the palm tree that was rubbing against the wall and 'disturbing' my sleep. My wife thought it was 'perfect' and my daughter wants me to rent it again. So there.
