About Tommy Wade

I am a retired civil engineer now working full time as the property manager for the Deco Bungalow. When you stay in our home, your comfort is my top priority.

Tommy Wade purchased this house in 2014

Why Tommy Wade chose Central Fort Lauderdale

Extremely clean and beautifully done interior. Newly renovated heated pool

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this little bungalow the first time we saw it. It has a beautiful art deco/streamline modern style that transports you back to a time when style mattered. The pool is in front of the house so you have views of the water from almost every room in the house. We stay in the home when it is not rented so you truly are a guest in OUR home. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at the bungalow for the last two years, each time for a month. The owners have made us feel each time that we were "returning home." It has everything you could possibly need to make your stay memorable. We highly recommend this rental and look forward to returning year after year. 5 Stars.

This was a recent guest's review for us on Facebook. They stayed the entire month of January!

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5

We moved to California three years ago, but are from this neighborhood. The home is very comfortable and in superb condition. Everything you need is available, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Highly recommend this home for the true Fort Lauderdale experience!

Everything we needed and more

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had here! Everything we could have needed to make our vacation enjoyable and relaxing as provided. The pool was so nice, and a lot of days we decided to just sit poolside and enjoy the peace and relaxation here. The house is so well organized and well put together, it felt cozy and just like home. I would come back here again in a heartbeat, it was the perfect location and provided all we needed for a great week!

Cozy bungelow with all the relaxing features

  • 5 of 5

First of all I was impressed on how incredibly clean the house was! Could not find an inch of anything wrong with it! All the little extras like soaps, pool towels and Bluetooth speaker. Beds were very comfortable though we didn't use the pull out sofa. Kitchen was functional and it was very stylish. Pool is located off the front yard with a spacious backyard with BBQ and extra propane tank. Carport came in handy during the rain and enough room for three cars. They have a very nice TV but only standard definition for cable. It is a smart TV with the Netflix app which broadcasts in HD if you have an account. The Nest climate control worked great. Overall a very comfortable stay. We arrived very late on the first night and the lockbox allowed us to get in without any trouble. The location was also very nice and close to most things. Would absolutely recommend!

Owner's Response: Alex, Thanks for the great comments on our home. We do our best to make sure it is as clean as if we were staying there. The location of the pool is great in order to give you a spacious backyard to enjoy. The location is absolutely perfect in Fort Lauderdale. Close to the beach, restaurants, shopping, parks, the airport and cruise terminal. Come see us again. Tommy
