Our amazing vacation in Florida started here. We were here for a week and really enjoyed our visit in this beautiful house. Gerard was a wonderful host to us. So kind to us and everything we needed, he was ready to help us. The house was clean and well taking cared. Our favourite place was backyard and the pool. Especially our kids loved the pool. We want to come back here some day.

Ihana lomamme Floridassa alkoi tässä kauniissa talossa. Gerard oli todella vieraanvarainen ja oli valmis auttamaan kaikessa, missä häntä tarvitsimme.

Talo oli siisti ja hyvin hoidettu. Alue oli rauhallinen. Lempipaikkamme oli takapiha ja varsinkin lapsemme rakastivat isoa uima-allasta. Haluamme tulla takaisin joku päivä.

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

Gerhard is an AMAZING host. We loved the house and plan on coming back again next year. Everything you need is there. Pool was amazing! My sister and I used it every single day, morning and night. The back patio & pool area are very private and secluded. Very quiet neighborhood and close to almost everything: shopping, beaches, restaurants, etc. Gerhard went out of his way to make us comfortable and I will always remember this trip.

Wonderful Honeymoon Stay

  • 5 of 5

Gerhard and his wife were extremely kind and welcoming. We stayed for a short honeymoon, and the location was great. Nice and close to downtown and everything that we wanted to do, but the neighborhood felt like it was no where near town. Meaning, it was extremely peaceful, quiet and relaxing while still being close to all the fun stuff such as snorkeling and the beach. The back yard and pool were wonderful for relaxing and just getting a nice break. We would definitely stay here again if we were heading to the Ft Lauderdale area. It was also only a short half hour drive from the Everglades Holiday Park. Thank you for letting us make your home our own!

Super maison tout équipé

  • 5 of 5

Cette maison est superbe, bien aménagé, propre avec tout ce dont on peut avoir de besoin. L'emplacement est aussi génial, très près des principales autoroutes et tout est à proximité, les attractions, les plages, les restos et les supermarché. Le quartier est tranquille et les gens qui y habitent sont très accueillant, sans oublié le propriétaire lui-même. La description et les photos de la maison représente exactement ce dont on s'attend. Sommes toutes, je vous le recommande sans hésitation :-)

Schönes, gepflegtes Haus mit allem was man sich wünscht!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine super Woche bei Gerhard. Alles war gut organisiert, vom ersten Kontakt bis zur Übernahme und Abreise. Das Haus ist gut gelegen und bietet alles was man für einen entspannten Urlaub braucht. Ein Park in der Nähe mit Spielplatz für die Kinder war ein weiterer Pluspunkt.

Wir können dieses kleine Paradies wärmstens empfehlen!

My favorite beach is the Hollywood (Florida Hollywood) Broadwalk. No cars allowed. The Broadwalk is great for walking and the restaurants remind you of the 50th. Less expensive restaurants while the Hollywood Beach itself is fabulous. A must see!
