Enjoyed it

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the pool. Just need to make sure you have mosquito repellent as by pool they are bad. Very roomy and accommodating our needs.

Owner's Response: I provide a powerful, large outdoor floor fan for my guests. If you visit Florida please expect mosquitos. I am disappointed that I lost one star for this reason.

Exactly as advertised

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this property. Everything about the home was just as advertised. We stayed four nights. The two bedrooms were more than adequate size. The beds were extremely comfortable. The house was clean. The furniture was comfortable. The size of the home was great for us (a family of three) but could easily accommodate two to three more people without issue. The only thing I didn't realize,which wasn't an issue for us but could have been awkward if we were traveling with guests outside of our nuclear family, was there is no bathroom attached to the master. Both bathrooms are nicely renovated but one is in the hall between the two bedrooms and the other is on the other side of the house. Just something to take note of if you're traveling, for instance, with two couples. The backyard space is enjoyable. You will, however, want to take measures to fight mosquitos if you want to fully enjoy it. We felt safe in the neighborhood and were never too far from anything we wanted to go out and do. You will need a car but short drives were the norm for us. Gerhard provided plenty of information re: places of interest and was always quick to respond to any questions. I would highly recommend this property and would gladly return.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, comfortable and clean. It was the perfect place for my family of four. Lazy mornings were spent reading by the pool or in the Florida room. Meals were eaten al fresco by the pool. Comfy beds and plenty of space so we were all able to spread out. Las Olas was great and Hollywood beach was a great way to spend an entire day. Also, the owner was very accommodating and kind.

Clean and quite with great access to south Fl

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Shady Banks; but it won't be our last. The owner does a great job in providing all the amenities, the place is clean and accessible to all that south Florida offers. We intend on going back in the future.
