Wonderful location for a family. Had a great time.
Thanks for staying at the Parrot House. We are so glad you enjoyed the home and the great location!
Absolutely, it’s beautiful house for a group of friends.
Great place to stay
The parrot house was a perfect house me and my group of friends to vacation at. The pool was great and so were the sleeping accommodations. We’d definitely rent this house again. The house manager, Jim, is extremely helpful and is always available to reach if needed. He made the checkin and checkout process very easy
Overall we had an enjoyable stay at The Parrot House. For sleeping arrangements it accommodated 10 guests wonderfully. The only struggle was the bathroom arrangements, as there’s only 1 true shower and a claw foot tub (which neither are photographed on the listing.) The outdoor area is nice and the heated pool is amazing. Remember to keep the doors shut and bring bug spray! The house is very close to everything but you don’t need to go far, because the Riverside Market and Cafe is a gem! Overall we had an enjoyable weekend.
This house was very accommodating to 10 guests. Loved how private the backyard was and the pool was awesome. We really enjoyed our stay at the parrot house.
Great house and private property with pool.
We had a great experience staying here - the house was perfect and the property was beautiful. The owners were very helpful, responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend the Parrot House!
The Parrot House is located in historical Riverside Park and is a 10-minute walk from The Riverwalk and downtown Fort Lauderdale. Riverside Park is bordered by 2 branches of the New River where access to the neighborhood is restricted to local traffic. There are only two entry points, one of which is a historical swing bridge on Palm Avenue. Add the mature vegetation with tall majestic live oaks and older homes and you have the perfect quiet location as a base for walking or driving to Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding attractions. The beaches are only a 5-minute drive. The airport and interstate are both within a 10-minute drive as well. Also, within a 10-minute walk is the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the Museum of Discovery and Science, Imax Theatre and the beginning of The River Walk.
