Overview

About the property

Newly Renovated One Bedroom Guesthouse On A Large Riverfront Property.

The high ceilings and large open floor plan of this one bedroom guesthouse create a bright, spacious interior appointed with contemporary yet comfortable furnishings.

The kitchen, with it's granite countertops and ample cabinet space, is fully equipped for cooking at home if you choose to do so.

The living room is huge, and with the 50 in. Smart TV, streaming Netflix movies or YouTube videos will keep you entertained during your time spent indoors, if any!

The bedroom has a queen size bed and a built-in mirrored wardrobe with drawers, shelving and hangrod and should be more than enough room to accommodate even the most fashionably prepared guests.

Enter the bathroom and find yourself surrounded by mirrors, marble and granite in a late 20th century idea of what a Roman spa might have been. With gold plated plumbing fixtures and a spa tub, this bathroom for some would be considered fabulous, and for others, over-the-top eccentricity! Either way you'll enjoy it's unique ambiance while using the facilities.

Outside, at the entrance to the unit is a brick paved patio with an umbrella table and chairs. A tropical garden and walkway lead you toward the orchid and bird house at the back of the property where you can relax under the bamboo, palm and banyan trees. Enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail (or vice versa) with the local wildlife and the property mascots.

The riverfront deck and boat dock offer views up and down this urban river and kayak or canoe use can be arranged under certain circumstances.

The owners of the property reside in the detached main house and will be available most of the time to be sure you have what you need to make your stay comfortable and hassle free.

Fort Lauderdale's famous beaches and Intracoastal Waterway are less than 5 miles away, and with options like jetskiing, parasailing or boating you'll come back home suntanned (if you're careful) and ready for a nap before your evening begins.

Nightlife on 'The Drive' is just a short 2 minute drive away or a 15 minute walk if you choose. Wilton Drive is a lively, eclectic collection of bars, restaurants, sushi bars and retail shops catering in large part to the LGBT community. There's fun here for everyone however, demonstrating the inclusionary nature that this small city has been built on.

There is no doubt you will be pleasantly surprised by the peaceful ambiance of this guesthouse located in the heart of one of South Florida's most popular resort cities.

About Caesar & Tony

Just a couple of regular guys.

Why Caesar & Tony chose Downtown

The neighborhood is residential and quiet with great walking and biking potential. All amenities are a very short drive from the property.

What makes this bungalow unique

You'll enjoy the large tortoises that graze the parklike grounds of the property (blocked from access to your private space however). The riverfront birdlife, and abundance of tropical trees will add to the enjoyment of your stay.

Private Riverfront Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wow...we cannot say enough about this great house! It is totally private with a seperate entrance and hosts who do everything to help enhance your stay. Tony warmly greeted us upon arrival and offered any help or suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Cesar stopped by on our last night there to meet us since he was working most of the time. They are terrific hosts who respected out privacy. The house is on a river with many great spots to sit and meditate. There is also a beautiful pool that guests are welcome to use. Two giant tortoises live on the property and it was fun to interact with them! Oh, there is a luxurious bathroom in the unit with a jacuzzi. Everything we needed or wanted was immediately available. This rental is a 10!

Comfortable, spacious, neat, clean, welcoming vacation "home".

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised at every turn; from soft, cotton sheets and luxurious bathroom and jacuzzi to the well-equipped kitchen, living room and bedroom. Lighted closet in the bedroom with plenty of full-size mirrors throughout. Full-size, high-quality Kitchen appliances, even ceramic knives made meal preparation easy and fun. The gazebo outside the kitchen door was a sweet place to enjoy meals while listening to and watching nature move about. Thank you for the most accommodating stay! Your place will be my choice when I return.

Top Notch Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Caesar & Tony's guesthouse for a week while in town for a work event. Our stay was top notch and definitely 5 star worthy. We have stayed at many VRBO rentals and this one remains one of our favorites for many reasons 1. Caesar and Tony went out of their way to make us feel at home stocking the fridge with initial grocery items including eggs and fruit from their own fridge as we arrived in town late Sunday night, 2. The accommodations were comfortable and spacious for two or more (it was HOT in Florida while in town and the AC works great.), 3. Their property and local scenery is breathtaking and Caesar and Tony allowed us to fish on their backyard dock where we caught (and released) many different species! And finally, 4. We enjoyed getting to know their friendly pets and viewing the wildlife present in the backyard.

For those reasons and more you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't look into staying here!

Thanks again Caesar & Tony! We hope to be back soon.

Romantic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 lovely days at the guest house. Not being "hotel people" we are constantly on the lookout for unique, private, romantic accommodations. Caesar & Tony's Riverfront Guesthouse was simply perfect. Quiet, clean, spacious and close to everything Fort Lauderdale has to offer, we felt immediately at home and Caesar & Tony are wonderful hosts. We were a bit reluctant to leave our review because we want it to be available the next time we visit! However, this gem of a vacation rental deserves five stars and more...we look forward to our next stay. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Exceeded Expectations Thanks Tony & Caesar

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed 5 days of relaxation in this classy bungalow. Meticulously clean and all the amenities of home. The TV and Wireless worked perfectly and the kitchen is equipped for a gourmet chef! The grill outside the back door was first class and easy to use.

The bungalow is more spacious than it looks in the pictures. I was traveling alone and felt very secure. I wish I could have stayed for a few weeks.

Tony and Caesar are the best. Welcoming, friendly and eager to please and also respectful of privacy. This was my first time using a HomeAway option and it was perfect.

I look forward to future visits to this unique setup. I already miss my morning coffee ritual and meditation out on the deck overlooking the river with the blue sky, puffy clouds and palm trees!

Thank you Tony & Caesar for such a relaxing and recuperating experience in your bungalow.

I look forward to seeing you again soon....maybe even this October
