About Doug and Ashley

My Husband and I both grew up in the south myself in Tennessee and him in Georgia. I always had a dream to live in the Ultimate beach house. About 5 years ago we moved to Florida in the search of that house. We finally found the house like no other. Over the past year we have renovated the whole house giving an older classic a modern new feel. We have two children Rhili Love (6 yrs) and Summer Faith (3 yrs). My Husband works on a stage production team and when he travels our family travels with him. We would love to share our home with you and let you get a taste of the Florida Beach Life.

Doug and Ashley purchased this house in 2014

Why Doug and Ashley chose Fort Lauderdale

We purchased this house because this house was unlike any house we had ever stepped into. It truly is a Beach house. A 5 level master piece. The only way to describe this house is the Ultimate Beach House.

What makes this house unique

The feel of the house is like you are staying at home. While many other houses are setup and decorated as a rental with no design our house feels and breathes the beach. this is our house and the warm feeling you get when you walk in makes you feel like you are at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to pass on a review for the house at 3333 16th Place. I normally don't leave reviews, But Doug and Ashley were amazing to work with on planning our vacation. They were great in communication before during and after (received my Deposit back in 1 week) . Ashley made us a tips to enjoy yourself in Ft Luaderdale book that gave us all great places to eat and go and enjoy. Thanks for all the great recommendations. It was great to be so close to the beach We went on a walk every morning. The beach is also very private. Perfect for me and my family. It was not a bunch of party kids like other areas of the beach were the hotels are located.

The location of the house is also great as it is 1 mile from everywhere you want to go.

Thumbs Up to Doug and Ashley for doing it right in creating the Ultimate Beach House.

Wonderful layout, location and atmosphere for 3 families with children ages 4-13

  • 5 of 5

We were three families all related and had a wonderful time. Doug and Ashley have thought of everything from beach chairs and toys to games, helpful hints and bright decor. We loved the dining room table which had room for all 14 of us to sit at the table (we had 6 little ones). Kids played in the pool in the mornings and evenings while adults chatted in the abundant outdoor seating or the screened in porch overlooking the pool. We went for short runs either down the beach or by going to the park and doing the loop, about 3.5 miles by the time you get back to the house, perfect. Just a walk across to a practically private beach with a life guard was so easy with the kiddos and made it simple to pack or come back for lunch.

When we took the kids into town we texted the "Free Ride" and they picked us up along the walk, so easy (954-603-4500).

We had the Roasted Fig cater one night, Kyle was our chef and he was fabulous

A couple of the guys went out on a fishing boat with my 13 year old and caught enough Mahi and Wahoo we were fed for the week as well as a 10 foot hammerhead shark! The name of the company that took him out was Full Circle Sport Fishing They definitely knew how to find fish and loved it.

We went to shooters for lunch once and loved that as well, easy with the kids and nice atmosphere away from the crowds. We rented a boat to get there b/c we love being on boats but you could easily drive or even walk. From there you could take the water taxi around for a bit.

We all agreed it was a perfect location, layout and atmosphere, everything was easy and we never ran out of things to do.

Thank you Doug and Ashley.

Wonderful spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 families/kids on a spring break trip. The house was amazing! The best part of the place was its proximity to the beach. It was steps away! Everyone had a great time enjoying the various spaces around the house and the warm inviting pool. The house was very clean in a nice quiet neighborhood. Doug was quick in responding to all our questions, as well as available throughout our stay. The only thing we wished was different was that one of the bedrooms did not have an attached bathroom, so one family had to draw the short straw. Other than that, it was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls trip, there was 11 of us and the house was amazing and accommodated all of us great. Owners, Doug and Ashley were also wonderful. Pool was nice and also very close to the beach. House was decorated very cute, definitely a beach house feel. We would definitely stay here again possibly bring the kids next time.

House was perfect for my family reunion for 14

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. We had 4 couples and we all had our kids. the bunk bed room and game room was perfect. The kids loved all the games and toys, pool toys and doll house. They had plenty of room with the kids watching TV in the down stairs TV/ Game room and the adults upstairs in th TV room by the kitchen. Both had 80" TVs. The location was perfect. Right by the beach and about 5 minutes from the tourist area (Los Olas) I highly recommend this house for anyone with kids. Cant say enough about how good the house and the Ashley and Doug were. They made our vacation the perfect family getaway.

Beautiful House, Doug and Ashley are Wonderful, Amazing 2 Week Vacation

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING HOUSE! Doug was fantastic! He is friendly, accommodating and always available.

Leading up to our vacation, communication with Doug and Ashley was great…quick, friendly, informative email replies. On check-in day, Doug met us and gave us a tour of the fantastic house. We were all pleasantly surprised because it’s larger and more stunning than the photos show. We found welcoming cupcakes in the kitchen, champagne, milk, kcups for the kuerig etc. Ashley had bought more games and toys that were age appropriate for our 4 little ones. The play area in the loft was like heaven to the kids because there is so much for them to play with.

We have rented many houses through VRBO and this was the BEST. In other houses, I’ve had to clean a bit upon arrival, but this house was extremely clean and tidy. The attention to detail from décor to supplies is incredible. Every bathroom was stocked with toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, soap and bath and beach towels were plentiful. We loved the mattresses and abundance of good quality pillows, blankets and quilts in all bedrooms. Every bed had a duvet which is rare to see in a rental home.

The large, bright kitchen and living area was a great space for all of us. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and there was plenty of seating for everyone to watch the big screen tv and relax.

There was more than enough room for all of us to sit at the huge dining room table and Doug had set up a high chair as well. He also installed baby gates on the stairs and left 2 pack and plays for our use.

The bunk room is adorable and the kids loved having their own space with the 4 bunk beds.

Even the set up and décor of the laundry room was nice and the washer and dryer were large capacity …great for big groups.

We didn’t really use the great games room (pool table, darts, tv) because we spent most of our time outside. Doug had the pool heated and ready to use upon our arrival which was so nice, especially for the kids (after sitting all day in an airplane.) There were plenty of lounges and chairs by the pool and pool toys for the kids. The supply of beach chairs and toys was also wonderful for our trips to the uncrowded beach.

We had a few nights of rain, but were able to sit out on the screened-in back porch and enjoy the night air.

Our family of 6 adults & 4 children under age 5 spent 2 wks in this ultimate beach house & did not want to leave!!
