The neighborhood was questionable. Boarded up house across the street with a police car in the driveway. Obviously the neighborhood is not his fault. Inside of the house was in disrepair. Smoke detector dangling. 2 dinner forks, 2 wine glasses, dirty pots and pans in the oven when we arrived. Musty odor. Pool needed attention and we had to ask for it to be cleaned. We were there for 2 weeks and provided 2 towels. Had to ask for more. Lucas was responsive to our requests but we hated to keep asking. Positives: Nice new appliances. Loved having a gas stove. Shower was very nice too. We also enjoyed the pool. With a little work this place could be nice.
I will start by stating that some guests I've encountered during my 3 years of renting out vacation rentals, simply will never be pleased no matter how much you try to accommodate them. These sort of guests would find something to have issues with even at a 5 star Ritz Carlton resort, and sorry to say, Elizabeth was one of these guests. Even she would text at 11 PM complaining that there was no broom, to which I responded promptly advising that there should be a vacuum there. She then replied and stated that she found the vacuum, and even her husband expressed his apologies for the constant attention Elizabeth required. On that note, the one issue that is valid are the couple of dirty pots and pans that were hidden inside the oven, that my cleaning crew regretfully overlooked, so for this I will take ownership. During Elizabeth's stay, there was some rough weather, which caused some leaves and debris to fall into the pool. My pool cleaners come on Wednesday every week, but to appease the guest, I requested that the pool cleaners come a couple of days earlier to clean out the leaves (there is also a net there for guests to use). Regarding the neighborhood, this is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale with brand new townhomes and shops being built around the entire neighborhood. The "boarded up" home across the street is one of these homes that was bought recently and will be the new site of one of these townhomes. Whereas the police car actually belongs to one of the new neighbors that has recently purchased one of the new townhomes, and lives in the neighborhood. 2 doors down from the house is another new neighbor that is another law enforcement gentleman, along with other neighbors that include a lawyer and some other diverse tenants that reside in this quiet neighborhood. Most of my previous guests actually like the added security of having law enforcement living in the neighborhood, but Elizabeth rather felt it better to speculate and be paranoid, even though she had spent very little time in the area. Mind you, in my 3 years of owning the property, I have had ZERO issues regarding safety or security, and this is in a neighborhood located less than a mile away from downtown. Lastly, regarding the smoke alarm, I advised the guest that this was being replaced since the alarm would beep without reason, so I simply unhooked the device to stop it from beeping until my electrician could address the required repairs.
Beautiful pool, but dated condo in an unwalkable neighborhood.
The backyard of this home is really lovely! Beautiful foliage and trees, a pretty pool, chairs to lay on, just what I’d hoped for. However, I ended up cutting my stay short by a week and a half because the location wasn’t very good in my opinion.
As for the condo, it’s dated and the bathroom is small, but that wasn’t a huge issue because I didn’t head to Florida to stay inside. The shower was a problem because it’s very small and the shower head was broken. Water pressure and temperature were great, however the head either had to be held in your hand or I had to crouch down to get under the water. It’s European style so you can either hold the shower head in your hand or, in theory, place it in a holder and adjust the holder to the right height. The holder was broken so it did hold the shower head, but it didn’t stay at the necessary height which meant I had to duck down.
The real issue for me was neighborhood. In theory it didn’t look bad, a 10 minute Uber to the ocean, but the area wasn’t walkable at all. This neighborhood looks to be changing, with building happening nearby, however I didn’t feel 100% safe. I’m from Chicago and live in the city so I’m not a sheltered person by any means, however I didn't feel safe walking to the grocery store or going for a run in the neighborhood. I forfeited a majority of my stay to move to a hotel in a better location because of it.
That said, if you’re looking to hang at a beautiful pool and enjoy a perfect backyard, this place definitely has it! Ideal for people with a car who want to zip to the beach or Las Olas, not for people who want to walk to activities, bars or restaurants.
Attractive exterior, worn out interior. This rental has potential but needs maintenance to equal other vrbo rentals in this price range. Many lights and blinds were broken, rear slider needs repair. We've rented on vrbo for 15 years.
Great property as advertised. Very accomodating at short notice.
Great back yard, fully enclosed and perfect for small dogs. House is well equiped and as described in listing. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
Place to relax
Nice clean apt for few people. Homey feeling. Salt water pool relaxing and very clean. Easy to find and get around Ft Lauderdale from there. Lucas easy to contact and available if problems occur- fortunately we didn't have any problems. The New Cuban restaurant is nearby with very good food and uses Grubhub to deliver- nice.
Tropical, relaxing, cozy
Had a great stay. Relaxed by the pool and nice cozy villa. Lucas was great at responding to my questions and even stopped by while in the area to greet me. Plan to stay again!
