Comfortable and quiet property and location.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house for the last two weeks of February and really enjoyed the property and amenities. The house is well maintained and stocked with everything you need. It is dated, but the kitchen and appliances are new and the gas grill was a plus. Loved the PVR and the heated pool just a few houses down. As Canadians, we were in it every day, although the locals were never around. It was like having a private pool! The house was in a lovely 55+ community with friendly neighbors and safe streets for walking even after supper. We were very close to grocery stores, department stores and many shops and restaurants, as well as gas stations and banks. Golf is just minutes from the door, and a drive to the beach is not long. Internet connection was good, and we enjoyed the back patio. If there is anything we could have wished for, it would be a dishwasher, and a screened in patio, but these are minor issues overall, and we would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable private house in an area that does not have major traffic problems. It is still very easy to access all major highways if you wish to visit attractions. We hope to stay he again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about our home in Tamarac. You've hit the nail on the head about its best features. I always enjoy the peace and quiet in the neighborhood, contrasted with all the resources available just outside the residential area. And the pool is grand if you don't feel like a drive to the beach. We thought about a dishwasher when we re-did the kitchen, but just could not come up with the space to put it. We are thinking about screening in the patio. One of the hurricanes blew the screening away, and we never saw any insects while we sat outside, so we just let it go. But it would add privacy, I must agree, and I think insects do show up in the summer months. Thank you for taking good care of our home. You are welcome back any time!

We enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures were an accurate showing of the property. The backyard was a little smaller than expected, but still adequate room for a few chairs to enjoy the sunshine. The pool was perfect! It was a very short walk and we went almost every day. We had the entire large pool to ourselves every day but one! The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We enjoyed taking walks in the evening and everyone we passed was friendly. There were plenty of restaurants to choose from within a 5-8 minute drive. There were a few in walking distance too.

We went to the beach one day and had no problem with parking. We got there about 10:30. By 11:30, there were cars circling looking for spots, so just get there in decent time and you should have no issues. The beach was clean, had a shower to get the sand off, and was not a long trek from the parking lot. You do have to pay per hour for parking. There were also lounge chairs and umbrellas available for rent on the beach if you didn't want to carry as much.

We already received our deposit back 3 days after we left Tamarac and the owner was responsive to our texts during out stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review! We are so glad you enjoyed our home and the beach, pool and restaurants. About beach parking, in the past you had to bring a double handful of quarters to the beach for the meters. Now it's credit cards, dollar bills or change, which is an improvement. Some parking lots cost less than others, but if you're like my family, everyone is too impatient to get onto the beach to shop around. It is fortunate the that pool is so close to the house, and so quiet. The residents seem to think that it's too cold in winter to swim in the pool, which leaves the pool use to guests. That's a benefit in my mind! I find it remarkable how quiet the neighborhood is, in contrast to the stores, theaters, and other amenities that surround the development. It makes a perfect set up, in my opinion. The friendly neighbors are a plus too. You are welcome back any time. Regards, Claire Murphy

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of five who spent Christmas and New Year's holidays in this house in Tamarac and really enjoy staying there. It is realy close from attractions and malls, considering the distances between places in the United States. There are many things you want to do when you are on vacation specially, not being home, but even staying home was nice in this place. Really quiet, even we don't like such a silence, we enjoyed it. When we go on vacation again if we go to Fort Lauderdale, this is the place where we will stay. Everything was nice, even the refund amount, it was really done within the appropriate time. Really enjoyable place.

Quiet, clean home base for 4 adults and 1 child

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home as we visited family nearby in Tamarac. The house was exactly as described, and we found it clean and well-stocked with bed and bath linens, pool towels and everything we'd need for a long weekend. The two bedrooms and pull-out bed worked great for our four adults and child, and the living room and kitchen areas were plenty spacious. The owner was very responsive and helpful. We would recommend this property and would stay here again when we're visiting!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback on our home in Tamarac, near Lauderdale by the Sea! We had just re-stocked the towels and sheets, and I'm glad you appreciated them. We'll be happy to have you back when you are traveling in the Miami - Fort Lauderdale area. Warm regards.

Great area, quiet neighborhood, size is right.

  • 4 of 5

After five previous seasons in other rentals this was our favorite. Location was fabulous with several groceries within 5 minutes, terrific and reasonable golf course 5 minutes away, fitness center close as well. Terrific host who ordered a grill when we informed her after renting that we enjoyed grilling. The home while old was very well maintained.
