Guestbook comments from the owner

My family took a trip to Florida to celebrate our children's high school graduation. We stayed at the Sandy By the Sea condos in Lauderdale By the Sea. Jim, the owner, was extremely accommodating while making our reservations and during our stay. The condo was clean and fully stocked with everything needed from cooking utensils to beach amenities. If you like to scuba dive, this is the perfect spot. There are two reefs off shore which allow for daily beach dives. This is our 2nd year vacationing at Sandy By the Sea and we strongly recommend this condo to any vacationing family.

Thanks Jim!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Are you looking for a place that feels lke HOME?

If so this is a great spot. Nice cozy 2 bedroom with anything you might need.

Actually my dad stayed there for a few months upon his move back to Florida from Nevada. Not a typical vacation stay but certainly a great place for anyone to stay.

Easy to walk around to the store and local restaurants, walk to the beach, everything within a few blocks.

Nice quiet property with a pool and outside terrace.

Would recommend for anyone.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The stay for the week was a refreshing getaway from the hassles of life up in PA. We were excited to see such an immaculately clean villa with pristine pool and all within walking distance of anything you needed. The property manager was fantastic and did the owner a great service. Jim, we could not have asked for a better family vacation and thank you very much for the enjoyable week stay! We will be back I am sure of that!

Thanks Jim for a fantastic vacation. The location of the Villa was ideal for our family as it put everything within complete walking distance. The villa was immaculately clean and provided all the amenities we could have needed for the week we stayed in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. The pool was clean and refreshing and the property manager did an excellent job of maintaining things. We will definitely be back for another stay! Thanks again for a great vacation!

Really nice place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place, very clean, very quite, very close to everything. 2 min. walk to small mall with Publix, pharmacies and liquor store and many more. 4 min. walk to beach and a 10 min. walk to the main street, where there’s restaurants, souvenir stores, board walk and much much more. Really nice! Definitely going to stay at the same place for my next vacation. Nice people to deal with, thanks Jim. And did I mention it’s a really nice place!!

Beach, Sun Bathing, Horse Racing, Gambling Casinos/Slots

Although conveniently located in a residential area, it is just a short walk to the action in Anglin Square.

Friday and Saturday evenings there is "Jazz on the Square" with live entertainment, etc.
