About Laura

After many years in high pressure careers in big cities, we now enjoy sailing and traveling and spend much of our time aboard our boat. We visit this property a few times each year to ensure that the property is maintained in excellent condition for our guests.

Laura purchased this house in 2013

Why Laura chose Fort Lauderdale

We selected this property in sunny Fort Lauderdale because it is within walking distance to the beach and to the town and because it has one of the best private pool and garden areas as well as a nice breeze from the deepwater canal and is only 3 houses off the Intercostal Waterway, making this a prime location. It is also in the prestigious Riviera Isles off Las Olas Boulevard, one of the nicest areas in Fort Lauderdale.

What makes this house unique

This is an extremely private house with a beautiful backyard garden and pool right next to the private dock. It is a 10 minute beautiful walk to the most popular beach and shops and about a 20 minute walk to downtown restaurants. The home is fully equipped for a very comfortable vacation stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Traveling from Europe, we enjoyed this house, the location and Fort Lauderdale and hope to visit this property again soon. The house and garden are exactly as pictured in the photos and the house is well maintained and very convenient to the beaches, restaurants and shopping.

We enjoyed the privacy of the garden setting with the heated pool and enjoyed many BBQ dinners on the patio. We have recommended this property to our friends who will be staying there soon.

Great vacation!

Met all our expectations.

  • 4 of 5

It contained all you need for a great beach vacation. It was in a great location - close to beach, restaurants and airport. The property manager was very helpful. The pool and dock were beautiful. Property Owner responded to all prior questions and promptly returned the deposit. Would definitely recommend this property. Would have given the property a 5 star, but the pool was cloudy upon arrival. Overall, great rental.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed the property and your stay at our vacation home. Usually the pool is sparkling clear and should have been for you. Sometimes, if it has been windy or rainy the pool could have some leaves and debris but then our property manager calls the pool service so the pool is cleaned again for guest arrival. It is cleaned regularly every Monday. Bill was out of town celebrating his anniversary during your stay and possibly overlooked this. But we are so glad you enjoyed your stay!

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and its location! The owner and manager were so easy to work with when we booked and arrived at the home! The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed, The outdoor grill is new and we enjoyed cooking outside and eating dinner on the outdoor table watching the sunset. The location cannot be beat and is a very short walk to the beach and many restaurants. We also enjoyed the pool along with the floats and nice beach towels provided by the owner! Overall, the house and amenities were wonderful and we are looking forward to staying at this property again! Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation and sharing your home with us!

Great House and Pool

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house, the private backyard with the pool and a dock on the waterway was the gathering place for all of our family afternoons and fun. The house was spacious and clean. Obviously the owners care a lot about the upkeep of the house and garden. We hope to stay here again next year.

property is not in good condition / construction work nearby

  • 2 of 5

we love to rent a beautiful home in ft lauderdale, so we did it few times in the last years. There are two main issues which are the reason for poor review. Ongoing construction work on both sides of the property and the shabby condition of parts of the property (blades, sun chairs, couch spotty etc)

on the other hand is the location perfect. Nice view to intracoastal and the surroundings.

The construction work (that we were not been told when renting) is or will be over in a few days but the owner has to spend some money for replacement in our opinion.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that your afternoon was disturbed. We take pride in our property and our guests' experiences at our house and want everyone to have the same great experience. The new house for sale next door was doing the last bit of landscaping before their open house the following weekend. The older house on the other side of our property was doing some repair work on their dock. It is unfortunate this work occurred during your stay. Our house and property are very well maintained and are immaculate as our other guest reviews state.

Fourth stay and counting

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently completed our fourth stay at Solar Isle Drive. It has an open floor plan that is great for socializing. The landscaped patio and pool are great. And the owners and property manager have always been a pleasure to work with. Great house. Great location. Quiet neighborhood. I look forward to going back again.
