This is the perfect place for a family to vacation. The back yard is a tropical oasis and the waterslide with pool keeps the kids busy the entire day. I would recommend this place to anyone and give it 5 out of 5 stars. Mark is fantastic to deal with.....we will definitely be coming back next winter.

WOW!!! We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you notice is the mini "Waterpark" in back. What a remarkable space. The bar area with fridge, grill and sink is fantastic! We had such a great time back there. The second thing you notice (and most importantly) is how clean the property is, both inside and out.

Mark met us upon arrival and explained everything we needed to know. He is personable and laid back. We got the impression he trusts his guests. We never felt that we would be checked up on. We highly recommend this property. The place is great for family's with young (and old kids 😀)

Charming and fun

  • 4 of 5

This was a charming place, and We loved our stay her. The backyard with the pool and slide was incredible. The house/backyard needs a little maintenance, but we just did not care about that, because of how fun and charming it was. Mark was very nice and helpful. Thanks for an amazing stay!

Perfect for Families with Young Kiddos!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our almost 3 year old and 10 month old to spend some time in the sunshine. This home could not have been more perfect for our girls. Its hard to see in the photos, but the top of the waterfall is actually a small splash pad that was perfect for our 10 month old. Our 3 year old could touch the bottom of the jetted tub and loved splashing around in there all day. It was great to be in the water while also being in the shade. We spent the whole time in the backyard and can't wait to go back.

We were also extremely impressed with how incredibly clean the property was, inside and out, as well as how well maintained everything is.

Tip: Take advantage of Walmart's online grocery pick up. Order your groceries and pay before heading to the house, then simply pull up outside and have your groceries brought to your car. We ordered sunscreen, diapers, meals, snacks and alcohol. Made it easy to enjoy the house as soon as we arrived.

As the other reviewers have said, Mark was fabulous to work with and was very accommodating. Per his suggestion, we spent an afternoon at Dania Beach Oceanpark. Was a nice little beach, not crowded, good for families. We can't wait to go back!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

These pictures do NOT do justice to this place!! We thought the slide would be fun for our little ones, but it was fun for the whole family. The back is a mix between a tropical resort and water park. We had a blast! And there was plenty of room to eat our meals outside. There was plenty of shady areas for those who wanted, as well as places to lay out in the sun. The back was very secluded and private.

The house was very spacious, and had plenty of room for our family of nine. The beds were comfortable, and everything was provided, including an office space and various eating areas. Even little details like playing cards, books and magazines to read, toiletries, a cooler for trips, a stroller, a shopping carrier, and typical kitchen essentials, like various spices. It was obvious that a lot of thought went into making guests comfortable during their stay.

This was our best vacation ever, and we look forward to returning!

Can't wait to go back:)

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to describe how awesome the experience was from start to finish. Mark was so attentive from the beginning process to rent the home until the end. The home is spacious, clean, fully furnished, and the backyard is AWESOME:) You will spend the majority of the time outside enjoying the pool, barbecue grill, etc. You can't ask for more. The neighborhood is so calm, peaceful and secure. Everything is nearby. The beaches are about a 15-20 minute drive, depending where you go. Miami about 30 minutes away without traffic. So if you are staying at this house you will have to drive to go to the beach, but that's nothing compared to the home you will be renting. If you are thinking about renting this property, think no more. It's worth every penny:) Plus, Mark was wonderful (even after the neighbors called him to complain about the kids making too much noise the first day we got there). Please note that we didn't have any problems with the neighbors the entire week that we were there, so please don't think that the neighbors were the problem. Our kids were the problem:):) they were too excited the first day we got there and stayed up until 2:30am, so they were really loud and I don't blame the neighbors. Bottom line, if you are wondering about this property, THINK NO MORE!!! other Florida homes may have pools, but this one was a lot better with the slide, sitting area outside, grill. We will definitely be back again. Thanks so much Mark for everything!

Owner's Response: Hello, Your welcome and thanks so much for your wonderful review. I can't believe your kids stayed up till 2:30 in the morning......... Wow, they really were excited about being there.... and of course with the pool, the slide and the waterfall etc. it's easy to understand their excitement. It was like having their own private water park. I'm very glad you had a great time, and hope you will come back again. Thanks again for your kind words and your great review about your vacation experience at our property. Mark
