Reviewer Comments:

Overall the house and pool were great. Everything was as expected. The house was adequate for 11 girls, the pool and hot tub were amazing. However, I do not recommend this house if you are worried at all about noise. We understood the noise ordinance to begin at 10pm, as such we went inside at 10. However, we still received a complaint from the neighbors and were told that we needed to quiet down when it got dark. Since it gets dark around 6pm this made using the hot tub relatively impossible without fear of being kicked out of the house.

after such a terrible hurricane, we were not expecting this place to be ready in that condition, but when we saw the inside and the surroundings we were happy and really appreciated it. BIG THANKS TO THE MEMBERS AND STAFF. Looking forward to our next stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Where do I even start!?! We didn't spend a lot of time in the house as we were out doing activities but what time we did spend in the house was awesome! The bedrooms were spacious, all of the beds were comfortable, even the couch was comfortable. They provided more than enough towels and blankets. The pool and outdoor area was awesome! The vacuum that normally stays in the pool to keep it clean wasn't in there during our stay so we did have a lot of leaves but we used the skimmer and made due. However, the spa didn't work, it didn't get hot and the jets were relatively non-existent. We weren't in the house much so I'm not sure anyone really minded but it would've been nice to have. The property was described accurately, the pictures were exactly how the place looked. Other than the hot tub everything worked great! The house and property were clean and maintained. Jeff was great and answered all my questions before arriving but during our stay I spoke to Jasmine mostly, let me just say that girl is AMAZING. Answered all of our questions, let us check in early because of an issue with the cable, we even asked her to come out with us one night. I would def recommend this property! As for attractions, we did the Spirit of Fort Lauderdale Catamaran, ate at Coconuts and Spazio's, drank and danced at Elbo Room, America's Backyard and Capone's. We had brunch at YOLO's which was amazing. River Walk was awesome, we LOVED all the bars and restaurants. The golf cart cabs were awesome too. One word of caution, the neighbor to the left of the house (if your standing in the front) is horrible. She complained constantly about us being loud in the middle of the day because we had music on and were talking. Came out and told us she works from home so we had to be quiet. She's seriously rude and shouldn't live next to a rental property if she doesn't like hearing people talk. We loved our stay at Flying Fish Villa and would recommend to everyone!

What a great weekend away ! We rented the house for a girls get away, there was a total of 10 of us and more than enough room. The backyard was amazing ! Very easy to get around to the different areas of Fort Lauderdale. The rental company was very responsive to any questions we had. Looking forward to renting the house again.

A group of 10 ladies stayed at the property in June 2017 and had a blast! The property looked like the pictures, which was refreshing. The house was clean and kept up. I am guessing because of rain, there was quite a bit of mud in front of the entrance to the shed so it made getting into it... interesting. We had one slight issue at the property, but the property management company responded immediately and sent maintenance to the house. Overall we enjoyed the property and had a great trip! Would definitely recommend this property and property management company to others. Dominique was EXTREMELY helpful and gave many great tips prior to the trip and was very accommodating. Thank you all for everything!

If you are looking for a great location minutes to all the local attractions this is it. We are conveniently located central to miami and the palm beaches in the heart of Oakland Park. We are close to all major highways and only a short drive to fort lauderdale international airport. This beautiful home is located in the oakland park subdivision of coral heights bordering fort lauderdale and only minutes to wilton manors. The ocean and beach are just a few minutes away and las olas boulevard (famed for it's food, shopping, and entertainment) is a short drive. Every direction you go from this home you will find entertainment. With fort lauderdale dubbed the 'venice of america' and the yachting capital of the world, you have easy access to many marinas where you can charter and rent boats. If eco-tourism is your interest we have everglades national park where you can view the wildlife. Seminole hardrock casino is within a 30 minute drive where you can enjoy gambling, retail, entertainment, and dining. Las olas boulevard has fun for the whole family with dining, entertainment, and culture including the fort lauderdale museum of art, cinema's, museum of science, and discovery and broward center for performing arts.
