Historic 1910 Cottage totally gutted and remodeled into charming open living space. Big private fenced yard on Holiday Park in Victoria Park, downtown Ft. Lauderdale 3 miles to beach. Groceries, gym, shopping, restaurants within a few blocks! Quality mattress and bed linens ( the last guest said it was the best sleep in years and ordered the mattress!) Black out blind in bed window, wood blinds throughout.

Le logement

The Cracker Shack is like living in old Florida but in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Totally renovated and charmingly furnished. Six children grew up in this cottage house when their father brought them to Fort Lauderdale from Ohio before 1910. At the time The Florida Fruits Lands Company was selling farms in Florida for very little, and in the deal you got a town lot. That is how they bought this lot. Turned out the "farms" were under water, in the Everglades, but thousands of mid westerners bought into the Florida Dream. Experience Florida Cracker living with modern conveniences.

This is probably the oldest house in Fort Lauderdale and one of the smallest. Built in 1910 and recently totally remodeled and landscaped. Furnished with family antiques including my grandmothers porch wicker. Completely fenced big lot. The back yard is on Holiday Park a 640 acre park with a par course great tennis courts basketball courts Parker Playhouse and War Memorial Auditorium and with Fresh Market and Winn Dixie, liquor store, coffee shop, cleaner and restaurants within two blocks. Two beach cruiser bikes available to guests

This cottage is on it's own fenced lot with off street parking.

I am a few blocks away if needed.

Victoria Park is the most charming neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale bordered on three sides by great retail dining and entertainment destinations. Las Olas Blvd to the south, us1 on the west and Sunrise Blvd to the north. 3 miles to beach.

Yes. And two beach cruisers. You can easily walk to anything you may need.

This is a very old historic house with furnishings of personal value to me. I expect it to be treated with care and any damaged or missing things will be charged to you.

Note: There is not a separate bedroom, the bed is in an alcove with canvas curtains that close it off. I said it is a one bedroom because it is so much more than a studio. The pictures describe it well!

There have been dos and cats in the space. While it is very clean, if you are hyper sensitive to pet allergy there will be no cancelations after check in.

Fantastic place for a short term stay in Ft Lauderdale. The house is exactly as described and the host is quick with communication replies and available to offer advice when needed. Highly recommended for 2 person stay. Would definitely stay again. I stayed for 1 month whilst doing some course and it was perfect place to undertake quit study, exercise and unwind whilst still remaining close to the beaches and downtown.

I stayed at Rob's place for two months while in Fort Lauderdale for a business trip. I found the cottage very comfortable and spacious to live in, and the space was exactly as advertised: the kitchen was well-equipped, with a washer and dryer, WiFi, cable TV and a Bluetooth speaker to play music through. The highlight of the house is definitely the back yard. It is a huge, beautiful space (probably bigger than the house itself) and backs onto a park. The best part is a large hammock in the back yard that is perfect for some quiet time with coffee on a Sunday morning, or lazing in and watching sunset with a cold beer in the evening. The house also comes with a gas BBQ, which together with the back yard meant I had many great BBQs with friends while staying here. I didn't have much interaction with Rob, but when I did text him with a few questions (his request was to text rather than call), he responded almost immediately and was very helpful in giving advice and making suggestions. I'd definitely suggest Rob's house if you're in Fort Lauderdale for either a short trip or longer period of time.

What a pleasure to walk into this charming and wonderful cottage and know all I had to do was unpack and enjoy my time there. Rob took care of everything including flowers and a bowl of fruit. I believe a truly great experience can be in the details and his attention to detail was what would lead me to visit again. There were great restaurants nearby and grocery stores within walking distance. The Fresh Market store was an added bonus. Neighbors were friendly.
