About the property

2 bedroom/2 bathroom 11th Floor Condominium. 1,400 square feet.

Our building was the first art deco modern highrise built on Ft. Lauderdale beach in 1960 by the founder of what is now the Geico Insurance Company. The lobby and common areas still boast the classic feel of South Florida highrises built during this period.

Our apartment is a spacious (1,400 square feet) two-bedroom, two-bath unit on the 11th floor with expansive beach views. The apartment was completely renovated in 2011. The living area contains a sectional sofa, a chaise lounge and a SONY 'Google' TV. The dining room table seats six if you want to have friends over for dinner.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you will need to prepare a wonderful meal. All appliances are Kitchenaid, including a side-by-side refrigerator, built-in microwave, and convection oven. There is also a wine cooler. The countertops and backsplash are quartz.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and ample closet space for clothes and luggage. There is a split bathroom in the master (one side has a sink and shower, the other side has a sink and toilet) as was common in the early 1960's. The large guest bedroom has a queen-size bed, two closets and it's own bathroom. Both bedrooms have flat-screen TVs and DVD players.

There are tile and hardwood floors throughout and WiFi is standard.

About Paul Farrow

We are Paul and Jeancarlo, a married couple living in Dallas, Texas most of the time, but with a second home on Ft. Lauderdale Beach in Florida. Paul is a residential realtor in Dallas and Jeancarlo is in college, studying nutrition and dietetics. Paul enjoys jogging and reading and Jeancarlo enjoys weightlifting. We both like dining out in new and different places and spending time with our family and friends.

Paul Farrow purchased this condo in 2011

Why Paul Farrow chose Downtown

Location, location, location. We love art deco architecture and this area of Ft. Lauderdale Beach is full of it. Our condo has a heated swimming pool, workout room and shuffleboard court. The beach is 100 yards away. You can walk almost everywhere, but a car is recommended for excursions and going to the grocery store. There are great restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale, many of which are within walking distance.

Also nearby is the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, the 'birthplace' of Ft. Lauderdale. The water taxi is a short 4 block walk and it will take you to downtown Ft. Lauderdale's Las Olas Boulevard where the best restaurants and shopping can be found.

For same-sex couples, the Wilton Manors area of Ft. Lauderdale boasts many gay restaurants, clubs and bars.

Miami is 30-45 minutes away (depending on traffic) so you may want to consider a South Beach visit.

What makes this condo unique

Please note:

1). Because of the nicer furnishings and art in our apartment, children under the age of 18 are not permitted in the unit. We hope you understand.

2). Due to condo rules, the minimum rental period is three (3) months.

Great location and condo

  • 5 of 5

Owner Paul was extremely accessible with follow ups from day one. Condo is in a great location. Confortable bed, great kitchen and sitting room with TV and fantastic view of the ocean. On a cooler/ windy day, the pool is a nice option, the pool is below grade with a privacy wall giving you have all the sunshine you need and protection from the wind. Thanks Paul for a wonderful week. We will be back. Michael and Jennifer.

Very nice, convenient place!

  • 5 of 5

A nice,clean property. Having beach chairs & umbrella to use a big plus. Great view & local area is friendly & walkable with many restaurants, cafes & boutiques near by. Full ocean view with expansive windows, however, my husband would have liked a balcony. Would definitely stay there again without hesitation.
