South Florida Tropical Escape

In the heart of Fort Lauderdale

Just minutes from beaches, dining, shopping, and nightlife

Are you ready to experience this amazing South Florida Tropical Escape in the heart of Fort Lauderdale?  Newly renovated and with all new furnishings, this vacation home combines hotel luxury with charm and coziness that is difficult to find anywhere else.  Yet, the best part is the lush and private backyard with an abundance of sun, ample shade, and an inviting pool with tranquil waterfall to satisfy all of your relaxation needs.

In November 2018, we completed a full renovation and refurnishing of our 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home to make it as comfortable and inviting as possible. Over 1,500 sq ft gives plenty of room to spread out and relax with family, friends, or both.

Please visit our booking website for real-time availability and rates.

Living Area

The living room has a large 55" flat-screen TV and Bose surround sound. The TV is mounted over a remote-controlled fireplace to make operation a breeze and add to the ambiance. The comfortable couch and sitting area provide plenty of room to relax and watch TV or to visit with family and friends. The couch can also convert to a queen-sized foam mattress bed to sleep two more people.
