About Jan Brain

About Jan Brain

Our property management company, Covenant Property Group was founded several years ago when it became apparent that many families were tired of paying higher and higher prices for vacation accommodations. Since then the luxury home vacation rental business has virtually exploded around the globe. South Florida, which has always been a destination for vacationers, has experienced a demand for home rentals that is unprecedented. Covenant Properties has grown to become one of the larger, well-respected property management companies in the area. We offer quality, luxury homes to the families that are looking for a home away from home at reasonable rates and managed professionally. These homes or villa apartments are typically one to five bedrooms, most with upscale amenities such as a pool, waterfront and near one of our pristine beaches. The properties provide a wonderful venue for families that are tired of the typical resort they would have to share with many others that may or may not be considerate those around them. Our goal is to have all of our guests have a great time experiencing the closeness of friends and family with none of the downside.

Our mission is to provide accommodations and services that exceed the expectations of our guests and to make their South Florida experience one that is filled with cherished memories.

Why Jan Brain chose Barrier Island

This home is located within walking distance of the Fort Lauderdale beach, Port Everglades - home port of many cruise ships, limitless shops and great restaurants.. The neighborhood is very upscale and safe - you may see walkers and joggers at all hours of the day and night. Another added plus is from the back yard you can see the cruise ships as they depart and arrive through the near by port channel.

What makes this house unique

The home is very tastefully furnished and features a pool table, table tennis table as well as heated pool. All bedrooms have HDTV and ceiling fans although central air conditioning keeps the home quite comfortable.

Top Notch ... Superb !!

  • 5 of 5

The home was well kept, stocked, and worth every penny .... Having been in the rental business for the past 20yrs you become keen to the goods and bads if rentals .... I can honestly say from the moment we made our reservation EVERYTHING feel perfectly into place. Jan is awesome ... The welcome call checking on us prior to our arrival and offering to stay to show us around the house as Top Notch Customer Service.... I would recommend this home and management company to all.

Like a house of friends

  • 4 of 5

We have really had a wonderful time at this nice property.

We really felt like stayinging at a house of friends during their absence – all needed things are there, beginning with enough plates, spices, shampoo etc. – just unbelievable great – you just have to drive 10 minutes to the next Publix to get your steak for the brand new gas grill 😊 Yes, the house is a bit older, but in good shape and it comes with so many Pro’s: Like the bicycles, the washing mashine (with detergent, so you have not to bring/buy it) and not to forget: The fantastic big and deep pool – here you can really swim and have fun!

Jan and Tom are really wonderful to deal with – very nice and fast answering – and we really appreciated the welcome basket and the friendly notice (as we have been too late due to a traffic jam) 😊

We would have loved to stay longer – perhaps we can arrange to revisit one day. Thanks a lot again for the great service!

Had a relaxing stay

  • 3 of 5

In general we really enjoyed our stay at Harbor Beach House. We spent a lot of time in the screened in porch playing pool and enjoying looking at the pool and palm trees.

the house is older so there were pros and cons. The location was great, you could walk to the beach which was gorgeous and also you can walk the neighborhood which is near the canals and beautiful esp at night. It is near restaurants, bars, shopping.

the cons were that one of the beds was so uncomfortable that I ended up sleeping on the couch so that my son could have my bed. the bed was just like sleeping on a block of cement. The "Master bedroom" had no electric outlets or place to put anything, no counters etc. The kitchen very old, no Keurig which may not matter to others. The shower only worked in the larger bathroom but I know there was definitely an attempt to fix it.

The property manager was very nice and accommodating letting us have late check out since out flight was later in the day.

All in all it was nice and relaxing the biggest issue was the bed in the one bedroom, the other beds were fine.

Owner's Response: We appreciate our guest's positive comments regarding their stay, however this is the first time we have had a complaint about one of the mattresses by any guest in the five years we have been managing this property. We will certainly check this out and report our findings to the owner as we only desire the most comfortable accommodations for our guests. Although the home is not new, it represents the best of homes that were part of this older, but well-maintained neighborhood which is close to the beach and many restaurants and shops. Also the previous guests had broken the handle to the shower diverter in the master bath which had to be special ordered. It came in and was repaired the day these guests departed. Also there are electric outlets on each wall of the bedrooms but may have been behind furniture. Sorry, no Keurig's in any of the luxury vacation homes that we manage and this is the first time in the ten years we have been in business anyone has mentioned this. Being that our company has managed over 4000 bookings we have found that once in a while there are guests that can never be satisfied. We ask you to check out the other reviews we have received for this home as most are five star.

Great location, lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay here on Spring Break. The location - particularly the proximity to the beach while still in a quiet neighborhood - was great. And the kids loved the various activities - especially the heated pool - as well as the pool table, ping pong, and scooters and bikes. Would definitely stay here again!
