South Florida Charm... with all the modern comforts. 1 BDRM + Office in tropical garden setting. Located in quaint Victoria Park, Ft Lauderdale. Walk to Las Olas Blvd, downtown, restaurants, boutiques, clubs. Beach 2 miles. Cozy & private. Indulge!!
Come stay with us! We understand. We've been in the hospitality industry for years operating charters on large sailboats & motor-yachts.
We've traveled the world and know first-hand what travelers want when it comes to accommodation.
Imagine feeling at “home” in the center of Ft. Lauderdale. Your heart will melt when you see this place! The one bedroom plus office unit is actually “half” of a large South Florida style home. It's bright, clean and spacious - and perfect for up to 2 guests.
We just finished a big renovation. The kitchen has granite counter-tops, stainless appliances and is fully equipped. We put in new flooring through-out, a new bathroom with a big shower - a new queen-sized bed - in fact all new contemporary furniture – tastefully decorated. There are tropical garden views from most windows.
Enjoy "Cheeseburgers-in Paradise" in a tropical setting on the private outside patio (yes the bar-b-que is provided). The yard is fenced for privacy. Air conditioning, WIFI internet, HDTV, parking, linens and bath towels are included.
The location is something else. We're in Victoria Park in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida close to downtown and trendy Las Olas Boulevard - perfect for shopping, dining and night life. The popular Fresh Market is only a block away - a white sand beach a 5 minute drive (2 miles) - or you can bike it. Sun your buns, swim in the turquoise ocean or watch the cruise ships head out to sea.
Ft. Lauderdale is known as "The Venice of America" with all its beautiful canals and bays - and is home to some of the most magnificent yachts in the world. It's a marine lover's paradise. There's much to do - fish, sail or kiteboard. Or if you’re more into land based things visit the Museum of Art, Museum of Discovery & Science or take (email hidden) theater performance.
Make this your home base. Rent a car and take a couple afternoon outings. Explore Alligator Alley - visit the Seminole Indian Tribe and watch them wrestle alligators. Drive to South Beach - famous Deco Drive and sample the Florida Keys.
When you stay with us it's like coming home.

We love our place and I think it shows. We just ask that guests take care of our property as if it were their own.
Over the years my husband and I have traveled much of the globe. Being big travelers and exposed to all sorts of accommodation we know how wonderful it is to discover a place that really feels like "home". We think we've created this in our Vacation Rentals - and I'm happy to say our guests agree!
We love Ft. Lauderdale - perfectly named the "Venice of America" with all it's water channels and beautiful scenery. It's sunny, warm and tropical, and has a laid back Caribbean-like atmosphere. Since we're drawn to the ocean and anything marine related its the perfect place for us.
Some of our favorite things to do:
* Go for an early morning walk along the beach...then a dip in the ocean.
* "Friday night concerts" in our neighborhood park - (during the summer months).
* Stroll along Las Olas - and indulge.... at the frozen yogurt shop!!
* People watch while enjoying a glass of wine outside of Mango's (Restaurant). Friday nights they have a live band and dancing.
* Shop for ingredients at Fresh Market (only a block away) for a bar-b-que on the patio.
* Go boating with friends.
The things I couldn't live without would be family & friends, the ocean, traveling and great food!!
Our life has been one big adventure and it keeps getting better.
