Nice little pied-a-terre right near the beach
This is a very nice little place to set up your base when visiting Southern Florida. You can’t get much closer to the beach. It’s a nice stroll to the Water Taxi stop at Shooters restaurant, a short drive to quaint Lauderdale by the Sea, beautiful Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, and every kind of restaurant and amenity you’d need. There’s ample parking in the driveway and the shaded courtyard is a lovely place to sit and relax a bit. Bear in mind that you’re renting a room in a property that has been divided into rental units so there’s no kitchen, so unless you eat microwaved food you’ll have to go out for every meal. A couple of observations: the room was spacious and comfortable but a chair would be a nice addition. Also, because of the way the property was divided, there is little or no soundproofing between the units so you’ll hear every word and sound your neighbors make and, I presume, they’ll hear you. So low inside voices and some courtesy should be observed if the unit next to yours is rented while you’re there. But let’s face it, you’re not likely to spend a lot of time indoors when you’re in a place as pleasant as Ft. Lauderdale, so this is a very nice place to stay when you get there.
Thanks for your lovely review. Well written and to the point. Will definitely take you up on your suggestion to add a chair in the unit...please come back soon.
Great host,great neighborhood,clean, roomy and close to the beach.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to hosting you again.
You are great people.
Great location steps from the beach. In our 10 days we walked to restaurants and shopping. Practically had the beach to ourselves. Jay and Rosemarie were very attentive and truly concerned about our stay. Although we had no kitchen, we did not miss a meal. Our goal was a winter escape and this beach location delivered!
Best part is the location.....
Very disappointed by how outdated the furnishings
were (including bedding/mattress).
Beach chairs need replacement (falling apart).
Grill with utensils inside (rusty).
Despite a great location, wouldn't stay here again.
BTW, a notebook with location of grocery store,
restaurants that are nearby would have been helpful.
WIsh I could say better of this "chalet"....
Have to put some effort into it.
Great location adjacent to the beach
This apartment is conveniently located doorsteps from the beach. It has lots of storage space. We had a problem with the food preparation/cooking facilities but Jay was kind enough to supply us with a new electric kettle. Unfortunately, Rosemarie was unwell for the duration of our one week visit and so we did not get the opportunity to meet up; we wish her a speedy recovery.
Hi John. Sorry I didn't meet you. My disc problem took over that week. Hopefully we will meet next time. Glad you enjoyed your stay at the BEACH House. Lovely couple Have a great year. Rosemarie
We found our stay to be very comfortable. It is closer to beach than we expected. Great for morning walks. Great location, close to everything, but secluded and private. I would recommend this to a friend (I already have) and we will return for sure. The unit was very clean and welcoming. Other reviews of the property have mentioned the construction site nearby. The construction did not interfere with our day to day enjoyment.
