I have been a Broadway actor/singer/dancer for 22 years and purchased this property while on the national tour of Mel Brooks' 'THE PRODUCERS' at the nearby Broward Center for the Performing Arts. I'm originally from West Virginia, but now make my home in New York City.

Patrick purchased this house in 2004

I fell in love with Ft. Lauderdale many years ago while touring the country in Broadway shows that played at the beautiful Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Lauderdale. Ft. Lauderdale's pristine beaches, world class shopping, superb dining options, and multitude of attractions make it one of the most popular resort destinations in the country. And did I mention the weather!! There is nothing quite like a week long retreat to Ft. Lauderdale

Among the many reasons I fell in love with this home would be it's unique layout and open loft-style floor plan, the spectacular 1,200 sq. ft. sun terrace, premium upgrades throughout, the quiet, residential neighborhood, and proximity to 'everything' - shopping, dining, white sand beaches, Publix grocery store just blocks away, theaters, the airport, and of course Las Olas Boulevard. As you read through the many guest reviews, you will notice that previous guests love the neighborhood and the 3rd floor sun terrace, which get's direct sun all day. You will enjoy stunning views of downtown from the terrace. But mostly, this property will feel like 'home,' not a rental property, and certainly not a cramped hotel room.

This was definitely the best condo I have had the opportunity to rent. Which is something I do frequently. Immaculate in every way. The sun deck was enjoyed by the three of us as was the pool. The entertainment center offered many video options via cable TV, very nice master bath with a tub and the beds were very comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to vacation in the Ft. Lauderdale area.
Owner's Response: Ray, thank you for the wonderful comments. Was a pleasure to host you and hope you'll contact me when you come back to Ft. Lauderdale!

Fantastic vacation Home

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 12-Feb-2014
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2014
We travelled from the UK the week before and cruised with Celebrity to the Caribbean. On our return to Fort Lauderdale we stayed for 1 week in this beautiful vacation home. We are a couple in our 60's and wanted a stylish, quiet place to use as a base to explore Fort Lauderdale and this home exceeded our expectations in every way. It was decorated and furnished in a very beautiful, contemporary style and had everything that we could possibly want to make our stay perfect. Patrick was a joy to deal with and our security deposit was returned very quickly. The area around the house was safe and the short walk to the river front was something we enjoyed . We ate several times at The Pirate Republic nearby and saw Manatees and fantastic boats passing by as we sat eating at the dock. We will definitely use this home again.

Best Vacation Home Yet

  • Review Submitted: 15-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2013
We rented this beautiful home in November and will most definitely return. We travel to the United States once per year for holidays and have stayed in Orlando, Key West, Charleston, New York and others. This was by far the cleanest, nicest, and most organized vacation home we have stayed in. The manager met us upon arrival and gave us a complete tour. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us from Patrick as well. The location is central to beach, airport, and large grocery store. We met some lovely neighbors who gave us recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing, although much of this information was already in the guest manual. Our favourite part of the home was the 3rd floor sundeck. We enjoyed cooking and having dinners up there. The large TV in the living room was amazing as well as the sound system which could play music into any room, including the sundeck. Checking out procedures were very clear. This was our first problem free rental ever. Thank you Patrick! We will recommend to friends and family here in Berlin.

My family of 8 had the pleasure to stay at Patricks house over the Christmas holiday. Proximity to The river walk and downtown was a comfortable walk of 15 minutes. The house had everything you could want . We even used the espresso machine . The pool was nice and warm and I couldn't get the grandkids out of it . We grilled steaks for Xmas day and enjoyed the warm weather . We definitely will be back. Thank -you again

Stayed here Twice - Excellent Choice

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 21-Dec-2013
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
My friends and I have rented this house twice for a guys getaway football weekend. But as a father of two daughters, it would also make a great choice for a family vacation. The owner and local property manager are both very friendly, accommodating, and responsive. The house is beautiful and setup well. I particularly enjoy the rooftop deck overlooking downtown Fort Lauderdale and the surround sound stereo system that is piped throughout the house. The house is extremely clean, modern, well furnished, and maintained. It is an easy ten minute drive from the airport or beaches. You do not even need a car as taxi fare is only $20 from the airport or about $13 to the beach. The trolley to the beach is only 50 cents and is within walking distance, as are the water taxis. Supermarket, Riverwalk/Riverfront, shops, bars, and restaurants are easy walking distance. Safe, quiet neighborhood also. I'm sure I will be staying here again in the future.
