Davie is a quiet horse town nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. It has a western vibe throughout its main street area along with wide open green spaces, numerous parks and over 165 miles of trail system.

Just 20 minutes to the east is the beautiful Atlantic Coast beaches. Spend the day walking the boardwalks, riding bikes, walking the long stretch of sandy coastline or take a walk along the shops at Las Olas Boulevard.

You can visit Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. There is always something happening, whether its concerts, gambling, dining or shopping (or our favorite, people watching) - only 5 minutes away.

If you really care to 'shop til you drop' you can visit the World Famous Sawgrass Mills Mall - only 20 minutes away.

We are less than 30 minutes away from Everglades Holiday Park in the Everglades. Boat rentals, Airboat rides, fishing and Alligator shows.

Enjoy any type of restaurant food you are craving or visit Publix or Walmart to bring your food home to cook, all within a 10 minute drive.

There are several nationally known colleges, technical institutes, and universities (Nova Southeastern University, Broward College, FAU just to name a few) to keep the area young. If you have a family member graduating, this is the perfect location to be close to the festivities.

Plus, we have the privilege of calling Davie the home of the Miami Dolphins who practice daily at Nova Southeastern University!

Within walking distance you can find a 24 hour restaurant, Bergeron Rodeo Arena, antique shops, Batten's Strawberry Farm (organic market) and much more.......

Davie is ideally located among major thoroughfares such as the Turnpike, I-595, I-75, and is within a few minutes travel to the Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades (Cruises).

If you really feel adventurous, hour and a half drive will bring you to the West Coast of Florida for a whole new coastal experience.

Come visit Davie. In the heart of everything!!!

Cozy and Inviting!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Jim and Denise was wonderful. The living area was nice and roomy enough for our party of four while the two bedrooms were clean and spacious enough for our luggage. The apartment was nice but the backyard was the most enjoyable. The large pool, hot-tub and bar area was lit up at night welcoming us back from our long outings in the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area. Both Jim and Denise were helpful with recommendations and any questions we may have had. We would gladly return for another vacation!

One of the best Vacations we've had.

  • 5 of 5

We visit family in Florida every other year for Christmas. This year we decided to try using HomeAway and rented Jim's Garden House. I was a little worried when I got there because it was a two unit and I'm big a privacy. Jim and his wife live in the rear unit and were gone most of the day. They were super helpful and responded any time we called. It felt more like staying at families then renting from strangers. The backyard was absolutely beautiful. It was like staying in a private resort. The pool was clean and to our surprise used salt water filtration which was a huge plus because my niece has chlorine allergies. There is a bar with TV and blue tooth speakers, a jacuzzi, and even a mosquito repellent machine. We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner with our family in Florida and everyone loved the place. I just hope its available next time we visit.

Peaceful. Beautiful. Pristine. Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We wish we had more time to lounge around at the house and property! (holiday weekend so gathering with family) We can't wait to come and spend some time at this garden home! Thanks for the wonderful hospitality- fresh fruit, coffees, and water in the frig. They had a nice "welcome note for us too. The house is extremely clean and has every amenity one could ask for! When we arrived they had the TV on with music station playing welcoming & soothing music too. Thanks Denise and James!

5 Star Property All the Way!

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong choosing to stay in this lovely home. I wish we'd had more time to stay, but it was the perfect getaway for my Mom and I to stay in for a few days exploring the area. Jim and Denise are such warm, wonderful people, and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need while staying in their lovely home. As other reviewers have said, everything is immaculate. They provide things like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and even mouthwash, as well as laundry detergent and dishwasher tabs. It was so nice not to have to worry about those things coming on a flight for just a few days or buying it there and having so much leftover. They even had beach chairs for us so we didn't have to rent them when we went to Hollywood Beach for the day one day. It was truly like a home away from home. My Mom would wake up earlier than me and had a 5 second walk to go read her book by the pool before we started our day. We would return here in a heartbeat and are trying to figure out when to go back with some or all of my children. Having the pool and hot tub right there are absolutely perfect things to have when going on vacation with kids. What an amazing place! I love photography and the landscaping was so beautiful I had to snap a bunch of photos before we left of all the amazing things in the yard. This place is a gem. Davie seemed like a quiet, nice, safe town - a college town, but we used it as a home base to explore the area for shopping. Sawgrass Mills and Plantation are nearby, and we also drove into Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood. It was always nice to come "home" to the Garden Home each night and spread out and relax with our own beds and bathrooms. Perfect! Thank you Jim and Denise!

Super comfy home with lots of extras in a lush tropical setting

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I found this to be the perfect place for our week-long stay while she recuperated from some surgery. The furniture was so comfortable, the kitchen and baths very well-furnished, and there were so many little extras you don't often find in rentals. I cooked for the two of us every night and had all the cooking utensils I needed. I fell in love with the seaside decor--it had such a calming effect--as well as the lush tropical landscaping. We had a few little problems at the outset but Jim and Denise took care of them immediately. In fact, they are not only two of the best and most attentive hosts I've ever had, but two of the nicest human beings I've ever met. I highly recommend this property.
