Small and easy. Efficient house. Will stay again.
Really nice place to stay. Everything was clean and beautiful!
Very appreciative the owner was very kind and responsive! My husband and I both have asthma, the mold in the shower both on the shower curtain and the walls was completely unacceptable. In addition the linens were stained and a towel left for us was also torn. The bedding when I removed the sheets at the end of the stay had a stain on the mattress pad. I have photos to support all of the items mentioned and really feel I should get some of my money back. We have stayed in very expensive and some very exclusive properties and have never had a problem. I am actually ashamed to even report my stay because I don’t want it to discourage people from staying because it really is a cute little place in a great central location. I feel with a little money and tlc these items could be irrected and it would provide a great experience for the next guest. A shower curtain cost $5.00 at the most. I wish there was a way to post photos
Friendly staff, accomodations were fair
The owner and staff were very nice, courteous and easy to work with. The unit however, was nice but not quite as crisp and clean cut as you see on the website. It also had a musty odor when we entered....there were a lot of Glade air fresheners placed around the unit. The king size mattress was extremely soft and not as firm as we like. Also, it would have been nice & much more comfortable for sleeping if there were more than a few pillows on the bed. The kitchen had minimal dishes and old utensils to use....no complete sets of either....especially the utensils. There were also left over spices, coffee, tea, etc. from previous visitors for us to use but we weren't sure how long they had been there and didn't want to use someone else's leftovers. There is no dishwasher to sanitize dishes so be sure to check each dish/utensil before using because many had dried food left on them. There were old, used sponges left under the sink rather than new ones for our use. I threw all of them away on our first day. The towels and linens were very minimal but more were graciously brought to us when we requested them. There were no wash cloths, only hand towels and towels. They said they were short on wash cloths and told us to use hand towels, and the towels were obviously old and had been used multiple times with some stains on a few of them. I wasn't sure if they were bleached between each use or not. There was only one full roll of toilet paper, no extra rolls, but it was ok for the 2 of us for the 3 nights we were there, we were away from the unit during the daytime. No kleenix available either. The washing machine is around the back of the building but we didn't want to go back there as it was unclean. The patio furniture was old and weathered.
It was nice to have a place with a kitchen, living quarters, bedroom and bathroom for our short visit but on a scale of 1-10, I would rate the unit a 5 because it lacked a clean, polished feel and had the bare minimum of supplies or had old or used supplies left for us to use. However, the staff was very accommodating and easy to work with and the location is convenient if you don't mind not being close to the beach.
It was the perfect setting for me. It had all the things I needed. I was in town for a conference and it was close enough where either I could drive or affordably take an lyft to where I needed to go. I was given the space to do my own thing and the owner was super nice and accommodating! I would recommend!
Loved the location and quaint charm of the cottage. Only thing missing was a tv in bedroom
It is necessary to venture outside of Tarpon River when looking for groceries and other supplies. A Publix grocery store sits conveniently located less than a mile east on Andrews Avenue and 6th Street. Retailers and major fast-food chains line the busy US-1 corridor, which lies 1 mile east of Tarpon River. The 17th Street causeway contains 3 major retail centers and serves as the main passageway to Fort Lauderdale beach for tourists and residents. The most accessible farmer's Market is the Oakland Park Farmer's Market on Tuesday nights from 3 to 8 pm. Nearby shopping also includes the famed Las Olas Boulevard which houses loads of art galleries and boutique shops. One favorite among tourists and residents is Shop 603. A mixture of Florida chic and beach casual wear keeps this boutique thriving. Plato's Closet offers a variety of designer clothing and accessories.
Residents enjoy the perpetually pleasant weather of South Florida by visiting one of two parks located in Tarpon River. Lewis Landing Park is located along the New River with simple picnic areas for daytime relaxing and boat watching. Florence C. Hardy Park allows for a more recreational experience with activities such as lawn bowling, lighted athletic fields, tennis courts and open space for field games. Both parks are open from 8 am to 9 pm. Popular among young professionals for afternoon visits, these parks are also frequented by families and young couples who often arrive by beach cruiser bicycles.
Tarpon River maintains a comfortable neighborhood feel with no major businesses or retail centers thriving on its streets. The area is dominated by single-family residences. Its proximity to downtown Fort Lauderdale makes it an ideal location for professionals. The dense tree-filled neighborhoods provide shade on those hot summer days, and a family atmosphere that is lacking closer to the city center. Tarpon River gets the name because much of the area is bordered by the New River, which bisects Fort Lauderdale. The canals and deep-water access make this community ideal for boaters and water-loving retirees. Tarpon River is located 2 miles southeast of downtown Fort Lauderdale. The resident make-up consists of retirees, young professionals and families. The location lends itself to a neighborhood feel, with the ease of access to major shopping locations to the east and Interstate 95 less than 1 mile to the west. Live in the city, but feel like you're not directly in the midst of the hustle and bustle.
arpon River is mainly a residential community, although local restaurants and bars are easily accessible and within walking distance. The Chimney House Grill and Cafe mixes the charm and rustic nature of a 1920s' home with the Latin American grill-and-cafe experience. An intriguing old home built in 1924 was renovated and re-purposed to bring Fort Lauderdale this mix of tapas and home-made Latin American cuisine. The sangria is fresh and is best enjoyed on a warm evening on the front porch with friends. When selecting from the menu, don't pass on the fried calamari or the grilled chicken-breast sandwich. You cannot make a bad selection from the menu. If you're looking for a local hangout with dive-bar appeal and a laid-back, happy-hour crowd with a little more action later in the night, Riverside Market is the place to go. Just a short jaunt across the New River leads you to Riverside Market, which boasts itself as the official craft beer hangout of Fort Lauderdale. This renovated convenience store has become a staple for young professionals looking to escape the overcrowded bars of downtown Fort Lauderdale for a lower-stress environment where conversation is important. Inside, you find a normal convenience-store, refrigerated-drink display, but rather than soda and water, it contains hundreds of individual Craft beers sit, ripe for the picking. The BBQ chicken pizza is the go-to dish of choice here, and after you've had your fill of craft brews and food, simply take your empty bottles to the front register to pay up.
The neighborhood and infrequent traffic within the residential roads of Tarpon River make this a bike- and walker-friendly area. The roads don't have biking lanes, but the traffic is local only with no major roadways or thoroughfares. Taxi service is easily accessed by phone. Uber and Lyft cover the area, as ride-sharing services have grown more popular in Fort Lauderdale. Broward Transit operates the public bus system along the perimeter of the neighborhood, which includes the Avenue of the Arts to the east of Tarpon River and Davie Road to the south. There are no public forms of transportation running directly through the heart of the area. Fort Lauderdale prides itself on waterway transportation. Residents find it convenient to travel via boat to and through downtown Fort Lauderdale from the Tarpon River area.
