About Kevin Bernardi


I am the luckiest guy in the world .... living and working in beautiful Ft. Lauderdale for the past 18 years! It's my pleasure welcoming new friends from all over the world to this very special tropical home.

My leisure time is spent traveling the world, entertaining and enjoying the perfect South Florida outdoors.

College educated in marketing/management; dog lover; great cook & entertainer.

Welcome to the 'Venice of Americas!' It is my goal to ensure a fantastic experience for all of my guests.


Kevin Bernardi purchased this house in 2005

Why Kevin Bernardi chose Coral Heights

Fantastic, roomy single family home situated on 75' of water with private pool and Jacuzzi.

Sunsets are best spent outdoors to be wowed by incomparable colors. Very tranquil home with all of the comforts .... including a brand new kitchen featuring granite and stainless steel appliances, updated bathrooms, new beds, fresh linens, new flat screen TVs. Freshly painted and immaculate.

Your sparkling private pool overlooks the water as does your hot Jacuzzi.

You have two great dining options ..... indoors with a waterfront/pool/garden view ..... or outdoors where you'll enjoy the lovely South Florida weather.

The perfectly restored terrazzo floors maintain the Mid-Century character of this 1,800 square foot home. One bedroom and one bath on each side of the home offers tremendous privacy. The open floor plan allows you to spend time together, but there are plenty of spots to tuck yourself away and enjoy that book or catch a nap.

A full size washer & dryer is provided ..... no need to over-pack.

The neighborhood is peaceful, yet you are minutes away from shopping, restaurants, bars, and a beautiful beach is less than 2 miles. Great area for walking, running, biking, rollerblading.

A walk around the lake is 1 mile.

Very convenient to popular Wilton Manors and Las Olas Boulevard which offer trendy shops and dining options.

If this is your first visit to Ft. Lauderdale, I will be happy to send you interesting sightseeing options and restaurant suggestions which my guests love. I am always available for recommendations, suggestions and assistance.

My goal is to provide a fun and memorable stay here in the Venice of the Americas!

I am looking forward to welcoming you soon :)

What makes this house unique

You cannot beat the sunset which is different every evening.

Imagine breakfast, lunch, dinner and evening cocktails overlooking your private pool and waterfront. It's a very special and unique setting.

An ideal location for experiencing the true Ft. Lauderdale waterfront lifestyle.

This property is amazing, the owner Kevin is awesome and the communication is superb. He worked with us and our budget very last minute, like 2 days last minute lol. I visit Florida very often and will definitely rent his beautiful home again. The waterfront view is breathtaking & relaxing, just what my cousin needed for the week stay. We appreciate you Kevin!

Perfect home fora Florida getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. We have rented in Ft Lauderdale several times before and this is the house we will come back to. Kevin, the house manager, met us on site, had menus and sightseeing attractions and gave us information about shopping and the neighborhood. He couldn't have been more helpful and checked in with us to make sure everything was in order. The house is nicely furnished in a simple and comfortable decor. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking equipment and dishes. The grill area has a nice sitting group and an outdoor table, that doubled as my office. I loved looking over the pool to the canal that runs right behind the property. We were there during a cold period, but it was 15 degrees back home so we were thrilled to be there even with a little rain and a little colder weather than normal. Rent this house you will love it!

A Perfect Holiday At Kevin's

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect experience in our stay at Kevin's in Fort Lauderdale. Kevin was TOTALLY amazing to deal with. He was very attentive (and so funny), answered every email almost immediately and, living just down the street, was readily available if we ever needed anything. The property is fully equipped and had absolutely everything we needed, but this came in handy when my husband and kids rushed home to change for a special dinner on the last night of our trip but they forgot the house key - I called Kevin frantically and, assuring me it was no trouble at all, he immediately popped over to let my husband in even though he had been in bed with a wicked flu - we'll never forget that and thanks again Kevin!! The property itself was absolutely perfect for my husband, myself and our two adult boys. It was in a very quiet, safe and lovely neighbourhood which was so great and made us all feel very comfortable. The location was also amazing, being within a ten minute car ride to many of the areas we frequented. There was plenty of space in the house and everyone was able to find their own area to hang out in. Of course mine was the backyard - it was so beautifully tranquil and relaxing by the pool. Our family enjoyed breakfasts and dinners by the pool, and hanging out in the pool and hot tub when not exploring the city. We even entertained family in the backyard which was large enough to accommodate our Christmas dinner for eight and it made for a beautiful evening enjoyed by all. Everyone in our family absolutely loved the property and we all found it very difficult to leave. After our week at Kevin's we would never consider staying anywhere else in Fort Lauderdale and can't wait for our next trip to Florida to stay here again. Thanks so much again Kevin for everything and can't wait to see you again soon! :)

Stay here. It will be a pleasant experience.

  • 5 of 5

This property is managed by an owner who lives close by. It's a cute, well maintained home that is impeccably clean and has zero maintenance issues. The owner is hands on. He balances being close by and available with giving you your space to relax and enjoy the visit. I've rented in a lot of properties through HomeAway, and this was the best experience I've had. I'll stay here again if I am ever back in the area.
