Unusual location - very comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a surprising location within a residential neighborhood but the fenced property for the ski school makes the place very private, quiet and secure and feels like you're in your own private park. Not many places where you can you take a morning walk by the lake in the middle of metropolitan Fort Lauderdale! Joyce has thought of pretty much everything in the way of amenities. The house itself could use a nice coat of paint but inside everything is clean, comfortable and nicely updated. The whole thing couldn't have gone smoother! We had a great family visit - SO much better than a hotel!!

quiet comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

the house is clean, comfortable and a quiet location. it's a beautiful 3 acre property around a lake. the house had everything we needed for the month. we were not on a vacation but were renting because myself and my son were having surgery. the house was so quiet and comfortable while we recovered. the owner, joyce, is simply amazing. she was so helpful and always checking to make sure we were doing good and had everything we needed. her kindness will never be forgotten. this place is perfect to drive to baseball/football games, beaches and other attractions yet come home to a peaceful home away from the crowds. this is my number one choice if he need to be back in the area again.

An oasis in the midst of it all.

  • 5 of 5

The home was welcoming and met our needs. We felt safe and relaxed during our stay. There were 8 of us from 1yr-50yrs yet we all fit in and had no problems. Everything was comfortable and clean.
