Perfect location in a wonderful little house.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us (5 peeps, two and a half couples). Could not have asked for a better location.

The pool area and yard is sun-soaked from early morning to late afternoon. Las Olas is just around the corner and there is a 7-Eleven within walking distance. As well as some really nice restaurants & bars.

The only thing we missed was a boat to go around the canals with. But you could probably rent one, however the jetty needs repairing. There is also a slightly annoying rule that requires rentals to have a fence around the pool in Florida. It kinda killed the vibe.

Check-in/out was easy and done without any interaction or wait.

We really miss the house, would definitely go back!

Lovely Florida Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled a lot but Fort Lauderdale seems to be the place where we always return. Just spent little over 2 weeks at Villa Katarina. I can warmly recommend it. The villa and the outdoor areas are beautiful, location near the beach and las olas is great and owner is always available for questions. Planning holidays with Ahldin Villas is for us a decision which guarantees that everything works -there is no need to worry about anything. Rental prices are not low, but price/quality is ratio is excellent. This is probably as close as you can get of owning an apartment in Florida without actually owning it, you unpack your luggages and start enjoying the sunny and beautiful Florida within minutes after arrival and you actually don't need to worry about things like fixed costs, property tax etc. which owner always need consider. We also have another great experience from Ahldin Villa´s - the Boat House. I would recommend planning and booking well before.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

It is a fantastic house! It is beautifully decorated, very clean and light! It is situated on a corner lot, so you have view over the water from all the rooms! It has terrace doors from all the bedrooms and the kitchen, so can easily access the terraces around the house. It has an open kitchen and living room area which was perfect for us traveling with children. The outdoor area is also so beautiful. The pool, dining area and the sun beds are in great condition and you can enjoy and relax very privately . The management team and staff are very attentive and service minded. The location is also great, close to beach, shops and restaurants. We loved everything with our stay here and highly recommend it!!

The house is very beautiful and decorated in a modern mediterraneanin style. Because the house is on a corner you get a better view over the water that goes around the house and more privacy overall. The pool was perfect for our children, with big steps leading down and it has saltwater instead of chlorine which is much better and healthier. We loved our stay and we are looking forward to come back next year!
