Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family rented this wonderful "Surf Lodge" for two weeks. Its very cosy, its better than you can expect!! Its a really nice neighborhood with VERY friendly neighbours. Ahldin villas are very trustworthy, easy to get hold of, very generous and we felt very safe in their house.

I was doing yoga on the front porch every morning and my husband took a paddel tour in the canal, it was amazing. The children never wanted to leave:)

The most charming place!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 10 days with my husband and our two teenaged kids at this absolutely adorable little house, "Surf Lodge" in a really charming and friendly neighbourhood. The house has everything you need, comfortable beds, a nice study for googling restaurants or places you want to visit, or just for relaxing with that great book. The pool area (saltwater) is located just along one of the canals where you can use your sunbed and enjoy seeing boats, canoes and paddling surfers pass. There is a nice BBQ area as well. We ate in quite a few times and enjoyed both the BBQ area and the kitchen inside where it was nice and cool :-) There was a lot of card playing going on in the glassed lounge. Extra plus for laundry facilities in the basement/garage. Something really good are also the sidewalks in the area from which you can access quite a lot of places without a car, if the weather permits, a nice surprise to me. The distance to Las Olas Boulevard with lots of restaurants and shopping and near access to the beach was also a plus. We would return to this magic place anytime and truly recommend it to everyone!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I spent two weeks with my husband and friends at this wonderful house and we had an amazing time. The house includes everything you need and we really enjoyed preparing food at the house and bbq by the pool.

We rented paddle boards and loved that we could just go straight from the house and enjoy the beautiful neighborhood from the canal.

My friends couldn't stop thanking me for renting this house and we can't wait to be back!

This house is located in a very family friendly neighborhood with a lush and tropical feeling. The pool area is gorgeous. The warm salt water cleaning system is great for the kids and they can be in pool for hours without getting itchy och green hair. The house is updated and very functional. We loved having bbq nights on patio watching the boats go by on canal. The staff was also very helpful and we had a wonderful stay. Thank you Ahldin Villas!

Alles in allem schön

  • 4 of 5

Schönes, kleines Haus in toller Lage in Fort Lauderdale. Die Filtrierung vom Pool hat nicht richtig funktioniert, es lag auch ein Zettel bei der Ankunft im Haus, dass die Pool-Jungs den Pool nach einjustieren müssten. Wenn ich weiß. dass Gäste kommen, dann sollte das bei Ankunft erledigt sein. Teilweise haben Steckdosen nicht funktioniert, das war aber kein großes Problem. Der Filter der Klimaanlage sollte auch mal gereinigt werden. Ein Staubsauger wäre auch hilfreich gewesen. Alles in allem aber eine sehr schöne Unterkunft.
