Property description

'This was outstanding'
It will be impossible to say enough or put into words what a great place this is!
Kathy has created a home that is not only equipped beautifully but it's also such a wonderful warm fun experience. The pictures do not do it justice. You can rent a place beautifully decorated but it's rare to find a rental that gives such a great positive vibe and is so delightful to occupy.
We did not want to leave. There are tiny joys and surprises around every corner of the house. It's a photographers dream and a traveler's delight. We give this 10 stars and our big hug to Kathy.
Clean, quiet, convenient, beautiful, fascinating...and sooo charming!
We hope we'll be lucky enough to stay here again. Don't pass up the opportunity to stay here!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a world travelled Realtor. I know how important a clean comfortable convenient place to stay is when you are traveling I now enjoy living in paradise. I golf as much as I can. I love to be home listening to nature and watching the world go by. I share my home with Lola, my labradoodle . I have filled my home with art and love and objects from around the world. I am all about ease and comfort. I am always available and will accommodate you in any way I can. My words to live by? Be Happy!

Why the Owner Chose South Fort Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA:
This area of Fort Lauderdale remains untouched by development, yet it is central to everything. It is a pocket of land surrounded by inland canals and waterways with mature oak and palm trees. There are manatee in the canal, beautiful and magnificent water fowl and wading birds. Giant woodpeckers and multiple species of South Florida birds. A completely private pool with sitting areas on the canal.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Filled with unusual art and antiques yet comfortable and versatile. No matter where you sit or which way you turn you will be looking at nature in full bloom. The house is wide open and airy. Safe and secure yet windows on the tropical world of South Florida.
