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!

Craig Ahlheim purchased this house in 2015

Why Craig Ahlheim chose South Corals

1. Newly Renovated

2. Great area, close to shopping, restaurants, beach and airport

3. Ideal for families who would like to get away from it all and relax at a private, quiet resort like house while having access to the beach, shopping, restaurants and more.

4. The property is walking distance from Wilton Drive

What makes this house unique

Location and High End Interior and Exterior Design. Proximity to Wilton Drive, Downtown Fort Lauderdale, Beach and Restaurants. The backyard is very private and serene allowing guests to sun tan or lounge in the pool or hot tub.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property and are very impressed. The house is very clean and beautifully decorated. Everything you need is there. All linens and towels etc. are superb. The pool is amazing and we spent most of our time out there relaxing and listening to the music. Craig, the owner, is a super nice guy and always available to answer questions etc. and really very friendly person. We truly had an amazing time and I'm already planning on coming back in near future. We stayed in many places in past but this one is definitely one of the top and nicest properties we had a chance to visit. Thank you again for everything and your hospitality at the end.

Luxe, Chic yet Comfy like Boutigue Villa!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this home and our host! It was so beyond our expectations and every need for a vacationer was thoughtfully considered by Craig, our warm and generous host. He obviously cares deeply about this property, but more importantly the visitors experience. The beautiful attention to detail at every turn makes it clear that he wants you to feel pampered and worthwhile. That effort left us feeling like we didn't have a care in the world. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Craig for indulging us and sharing your elegant home!

My family loved our stay in this beautiful home. The warm welcome we received upon our arrival set our vacation up from the very start. Every amenity we needed was provided. A modern fully stocked kitchen, gorgeous decor and comfortable beds were just a few of the special aspects of this home. We spent many lazy hours enjoying the oasis in the back terrace. This location is perfect for beaches (with easy parking), great restaurants and within easy driving distance to West Palm Beach, Miami or even Naples.The owners thought of everything to make our stay in Ft. Lauderdale memorable. We really didn't want to leave.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I expressed how nervous I was having guests staying long term. You all proved I had nothing to concern myself with. Everyone treated my home like it was there’s, interesting to talk to and lovely to be around. We very much enjoyed making new friends.

On a scale of 1-5, I give it a 10!

  • 5 of 5

Spent last weekend with my family at Craig's lovely home. We had a fabulous time.

The place is gorgeous, roomy and beautifully landscaped with a great pool & spa and has every amenity you could possibly want. It is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and affords privacy in a very quiet neighborhood.

What really made our stay so exceptional is the owner, Craig. He takes pride in his home and truly cares about the people who share it, making sure that they have a great time.

I have had wonderful experiences with VRBO/Homeaway in various locations across the country but none can compare with our stay at Craig's home in Fort Lauderdale.

I strongly suggest that you make your reservation now - You will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: I am unclear how to respond. Just an amazing review. Thank you so very much. Hopefully you two will come back to visit, and if we ever spend a few days on the Gulf we'll make sure to let you know.

Wonderful vacation home!

You couldn’t ask for a better vacation home. It’s fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, and absolutely beautiful. Our entire family loved the house and especially the backyard pool area. Wonderful stay and host.
