About Debbie Vass

This was my home for many years and it holds a special place in my heart. My late husband and I fell in love with the neighborhood. After many years of living on a boat, we bought a great house as well as a place to keep our sailboat. I still have many friends on the street and visit often. But, lifestyles change, and I now live closeby in a condo near the beach.

I think of all my renters as my guests and, whenever possible, I like to meet them personally and help them settle in.

Debbie Vass purchased this house in 1992

Why Debbie Vass chose South Fort Lauderdale

The Spanish style speaks to me and I have decorated to reflect that colorful culture. The neighborhood is friendly and safe, with a park nearby. It is also conveniently located for access to the airport and the cruise port, as well as the beach, Las Olas, and all that South Florida offers.

Perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully appointed and perfectly located. The swimming pool and canal were so nice and the neighborhood was perfect for walking and running. I ran into several peacocks on my daily walk/run.

We had the house for memorial weekend for a girls trip and we all had a fantastic time. I booked the house and the ladies were all very impressed with my choice and the affordability. We can’t thank Debbie enough for such a great experience and hospitality.

Great home with pool

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed this home for a recent stay with my family (2 adults + 1 Toddler). The pool was a great part of the house and had lots of sitting areas (half shaded). The owner provided lots of pool and beach toys/equipment. The kitchen had all the equipment you could need for cooking in (utensils, kids utensils, blender, ice maker, Tupperware, etc). Lots of room in the living room to relax. Having off-street parking (2 spots, 1 covered) was also great. The owner called us after we arrived to help us settle in.

Only had a few minor issues. The master bedroom mattress was really soft (a little uncomfortable for us used to firm mattress) and the ceiling fan was very wobbly/loud which was unfortunate since the A/C wasn’t as strong in that room compared to the rest of the house. The bathrooms were really small, but very nice. Two of the fishing poles weren’t in working order. The outside kill-switch for the sliding door alarm (safety alert to parents in the event a child goes out to the pool unattended) didn’t work. A random guy walked through the back yard one morning to the dock (assumed he was the owner of the boat). None of these were all that bad, we’d definitely stay here again.

The location is great! Quick drive from the airport and close to the beach. The house was perfect (even with a 9 yr old and 6 yr old). We appreciated having the heated pool to swim in all to ourselves. I would definitely recommend this property and we hope to be back!

Really is a bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house owned by a very nice woman. We just spent 10 days here and everything was perfect. It was very comfortable, had all of the amenities you could want, was 10 minutes (easy drive) to Las Olas and the arts district, and the pool and patio were terrific. We enjoyed the warm water in the pool, the boats that went by on the canal, and the iguanas sunning themselves across the way. Comfortable beds, nice linens, washer & dryer, beach gear. Great place! You can't go wrong here!

Everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a lovely time with our 2 small children at this home. Dorothy was so wonderful and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. They really pay attention to details from pool towels to extra linens to soap - everything is provided. There was a pack n play, high chair, and walker which was a huge help so we didnt have to schlep anything from home. We loved walking to the playground and watching the iguanas on the docks. The neighbors were also really nice. The surrounding streets and neighborhoods weren't as nice; which would really be my only negative comment.
