About Craig Ahlheim
Hi Everyone, I’m Craig. I am originally from New York City but now am retired and live with my partner of 11 years in beautiful Fort Lauderdale/Oakland Park, Florida. I am a retired Sales Executive and had the chance during my career to travel a lot and get to know different areas of the country. I love traveling, swimming, good restaurants, reading, gardening and spending time with friends and family. My partner is in the hospitality industry (he is European born and raised) and equally enjoys hosting and entertaining as much as I do. We bought this home last year because it was a newer construction (was built in 2005) and has high ceilings and spacious inside and outside living areas. We recently completed a full renovation and updated absolutely everything inside and out. Our primary residence is 2 minutes away from the house which allows us to be close by in case guests need anything. We look forward to hosting you at our Florida oasis!

NO NEED TO LOOK ANY FURTHER, this is the one! Yes I am shouting that! My family and I rented this home over Fall Break and it was the best decision we could have made. Outstanding available owners, great location, lovely well appointed home. You will love the saltwater pool and hot tub. The kids loved it so much we only left the house once. The pictures are great but I have to agree with others, they really don't do this house justice. Tons of extras you normally don't see in a rental. The owners have gone to great extent to ensure your comfort. Trust me you will not want to leave! We will definitely be back :))
I think most of the previous reviews cover Craig's place but just to reiterate...
It's wonderfully clean and spacious, it contains everything you could possibly need, the yards and swimming pool are relaxing, quiet and clean.
The house is in a great location and is extremely quiet.
David met us and took around the house just to run over what is what, he was really lovely and told us that if we needed anything at all just to give him a knock next door.
All in all we would stay here again in a heartbeat. If you are considering this place, I would definitely recommend booking it up straight away.
Thank you Craig, David and Co.
The vacation home shouts luxury
Craig’s vacation home is close to perfect. The pictures, though great, don’t really convey how large the living space is and how lush the landscaping. The backyard is very ,very private and it has an outside shower. Plus there is a new sanctuary in the fenced in front yard that is the perfect place to gather early in the morning or unwind at night. I heartily recommend staying. In fact I plan on returning in September.
Awesome luxury home
This house is beautifully decorated with tremendous attention to detail. Craig provides everything you need and then some. The sound system is phenomenal and the backyard and pool oasis are well planned for the ultimate privacy and comfort. We found everything clean spotless, comfortable and cozy. Craig was a true pleasure to deal with, he showed us how to operate the pool, spa, sound system, TV, lighting etc so we could spend our vacation time enjoying the amenities instead of guessing how to work things.
I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and I’m already checking my calendar to see when I could make time to come again.
House has everything! Makes you feel like you are at home with all of the accommodations provided. Owner was helpful every step of the way. Perfect for couples or families.
Perfect Family Vacation!
We absolutely enjoyed every second of our stay. Craig and Gottfried were incredibly welcoming and a joy to meet. The house is beautiful, well laid out, spotless, and stocked with everything we could ever need or want. We felt like we were in our own secluded, private oasis when we were in the pool, yet we were walking distance and/or a short drive to restaurants. However, we mostly ordered in (lots of options for quick delivery from the the food delivery apps) because our kids never wanted to get out of the pool. We did manage to drag them out to the beach a couple of times which was quick and easy to get to. Craig made that perfect as well by providing a beach bag, chairs, boogie board etc. We didn't want to leave and we hope to return for a future vacation.
