"Our family and another family, both with several adult and young adult kids, were easily able to comfortably share this very large and luxurious house on the waterway in Ft. Lauderdale. The house was large enough so that everyone could find a place to "get away" from the crowd if he/she wanted to, and also had several living areas, inside and out, for all of us to be together to share meals, lay out by the pool, etc. The pool was large enough for a robust game of water volleyball, and there was plenty of room on the deck for the dozen or so of us to sit out at the same time. The layout of the house was great both for privacy of individual guest and communal gathering. The house is convenient to stores, groceries, etc., and particularly easy to get to/from the Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood airport (but without any overflight noise), which was very convenient. Each bedroom had its own very comfortable bathroom with shower, which was also key with many younger and older kids with us. The multi-room Sonos sound system was very enjoyable, especially with the sound by the pool. We also enjoyed seeing boats, small and large, drift by throughout the day.
The house is in need of some small touching up here and there, but that only kept it from being a "5" all around. Even as is, the house is very attractive. The house was very clean. For the few items we notified the property managers about, they were very quick to address them. The wi-fi occasionally went out, but that was fixed by the traditional "unplug and plug back in" method. There's nothing particularly remarkable about the surrounding neighborhood--you'd want to drive most anywhere that you want to get to. The nearest beach is a few miles away, but that proved not to be significant given how comfortable the pool and deck area are. But we did go to the beach a couple of times during our stay, and that was a fairly easy proposition.
I would definitely recommend the house to anyone with a large group looking for luxury accommodations in Ft. Lauderdale. We would certainly stay there again without hesitation."
