About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Recently renovated villa located on canal off New River with private, heated swimming pool in quiet, relaxed neighborhood. House also includes private dock that allows easy ocean access for all boaters.

It is an ideal location to explore not only Fort Lauderdale but also Miami and nearby Palm Beach, both of which are only 25 minutes away by car.

The three bedroom, two bath villa includes poolside deck overlooking canal as well as new fitness room that includes a host of stationary exercise machines. Two kayaks and two bicycles are included in the rental.

By car, boat or bicycle the famous Fort Lauderdale River Walk, where restaurants, bars, museums and shops abound, is easily accessible.

The well maintained Fort Lauderdale beachfront is a short distance as is the Fort Lauderdale International Airport. The thriving Miami Beach nightlife is only a 25-minute drive.

Nearby recreational facilities abound, including more than 40 golf courses within a 15 minute drive.. There are exceptional tennis facilities in Fort Lauderdale as well as scuba diving, windsurfing, dinghy and catamaran sailing and a host of other activities associated with tropical living.

Fishing aficionados have the best of both worlds nearby. Besides being able to fish for snook from the dock (in season of course) sailfish and numerous other species are a big-catch away via a deep sea charter or boat rentals available at Fort Lauderdale marinas. Some of the world's best bass, tarpon and other fresh water fish are easy prey in the Everglades, which is a 20 minute drive to the west. Otherwise the canals and New River also are rife with game fish.

The Everglades National Park is also only a 30 minute drive. The Seminole Hard Rock Casino and entertainement complex is only a 10 minute drive.

.With the pool and dock on the backside of the property, the front side includes a secluded, tranquil tropical garden with fountain and small pond.

Tiled patio around the pool and gas grill make for ideal setting for outdoor barbecues.

For families with children there is a table soccer game and crib for infants.

The fitness room includes a variety of stationary exercise machines including cycling, abdomen bench, bowflex and weight set.

It is very easy to take the bikes and cycle to the beach or visit downtown Fort Lauderdale where there is the Riverwalk, museums, art gallieries, shops and restaurants.

For shoppers the famous Sawgrass Mills outlet mall is only 15 minutes by car.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am freelance writer who fell in love with Florida and all its unique environmental and cultural life during my first visit more than 30 years ago. Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, I have been a regular visitor to Fort Lauderdale for the past 25 years. Before buying the villa, I kept my sailboat in Fort Lauderdale and sailed regularly to the Florida Keys and the Bahamas.

Why the Owner Chose South Fort Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA:
I chose to buy a vacation home in Fort Lauderdale as it is the boating capital of North America.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I enjoy nothing more than getting up early and taking the kayak out on the canal down to the New River, where there is a nearby wildlife refuge. Along the way there are numerous beautiful wading birds and other wildlife. Upon a return I take a swim and have breakfast by the pool. Later I usually take the bicycle to the beach. After a walk along the beach I usually head over to the Borders Book Store on Sunrise Boulevard for a coffee on the canal. Later I cycle through downtown Fort Lauderdale via the Riverwalk where there are numerous cafes and restaurants as well as a great museum. Other days trips that I enjoy immensely include the Oleta State Park in north Miami (great kayaking), Everglades National Park, Key Biscayne and Palm Beach.
