Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day stay while we were in town for a course. We were so comfortable and had everything we needed to make this a home away from home. Ron the owner is as charming as his cottage, and we loved his attention to detail. We didn't take the coconut because we were afraid to kill it! Would love to stay again when the opportunity presents itself. Stay here and prepare to have a lovely home base from which to enjoy the city. If you get a chance, the Temple Street Eatery and Sakura Foot Spa are not to be missed. Thank you for everything Ron!

Charming, quiet, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I use VBRO rental properties very frequently, and can highly recommend this beautifully and tastefully decorated Cottage to everyone visiting the area. From our welcome by Ron, to the minute we left 10 days later, our experience was exceptional. The furnishings were very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, the screened patio and surrounding front and back gardens created such a peaceful and elegant atmosphere. Nestled in a quiet and very safe neighborhood, it was very quiet, yet we were within walking distance to grocery stores and many great restaurants. The beach is only a short ride away. One of the greatest aspects of this experience was the owner's exceptional attention to our needs. He checked on several occasions to make sure everything was up to our expectations. The Palm Cottage is truly a gem. We plan to make this and his other property a regular spot to stay when we visit Florida each year.

We stayed at Palm Cottage for 5 nights, Ron was very welcoming and helpful. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished, with everything you could possibly need and the beds are so comfortable.It's in a great location with stores and restaurants within walking distance, I was especially pleased with a whole foods store across the road.A short drive from all the main tourist areas. We highly recommend Palm Cottage you won't be disappointed, we will definitely stay there again on our next visit, we loved it.

Lady lake, Florida.

A true gem of a find!

  • 5 of 5

I travel quite a lot for pleasure and work so I know what I want in a short term rental property. This cottage provided us with the comforts and "essential" items I expect in a quality run property. Tastefully done the cottage was more than we had expected from the photos we peviewed when booked. The host was extremly helpful and made us feel very welcome as soon as we shook hands! It did not have a pool but we went to the beach which was a 5 minute drive away when we wanted. Whole Foods was short walk away in this safe area of Ft. Lauderdale. There were many restaurants that we also walked to in the evenings.

Charming Palm Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5

Title: Charming Palm Cottage Stay

Review: My friends and I had a wonderful getaway at Palm Cottage. While those up North were enduring winter weather we were relaxing indoors and out at this lovely, professionally decorated home. There were two inviting outdoor seating areas, one on a deck, one in a screened in porch that also featured al fresco dining. The outdoor barbecue complimented a modern, fully equipped kitchen. Dining and relaxing indoors were also quite comfortable. The two bedrooms and bathrooms were ideal for our group. We were just a short walk away from restaurants, coffee shops, and even a Whole Foods. A five minute drive took us to Ft. Lauderdale's beautiful beach! Our very helpful host was always available with information about the cottage and a host of local attractions. I heartily recommend Palm Cottage and hope to return to Palm Cottage soon

Poinsettia Heights Travel Tips

The Peaceful Side of Florida at Poinsettia Heights Vacation Rentals

The peaceful and elegant appearance of the Poinsettia Heights neighborhood is a welcome respite for any winter-weary traveler. Located in the northeast side of Fort Lauderdale, it is rather detached from the usual tourist hustle and bustle in the rest of the city. That serenity accentuates the atmosphere of Poinsettia Heightsvacation rentals that boast the personal space lacking in surrounding hotels and resorts. On site are pools, lush gardens and outdoor amenities, with natural stores like Whole Foods and Publix mere blocks away. The vacation rental perks and tranquility of the area makes this side of Fort Lauderdale a southern Eden.

Sights of Natural Beauty Encompass Poinsettia Heights

Within the neighborhood is the strip of water known as Lake Meva. Outside of the fishing and bird watching, visitors can cruise the lake on paddle boats, which are offered at some vacation rentals and Poinsettia Heights condos along the shores. Just to the east, visitors can do the same thing, along with canoeing at the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Having the same refreshing qualities of Central Park, this 180 acre nature getaway features a freshwater lagoon and is great for hiking, biking and taking in the area's unique wildlife and vegetation.
