Davie is a quiet horse town nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. It has a western vibe throughout its main street area along with wide open green spaces, numerous parks and over 165 miles of trail system.

Just 20 minutes to the east is the beautiful Atlantic Coast beaches. Spend the day walking the boardwalks, riding bikes, walking the long stretch of sandy coastline or take a walk along the shops at Las Olas Boulevard.

You can visit Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. There is always something happening, whether its concerts, gambling, dining or shopping (or our favorite, people watching) - only 5 minutes away.

If you really care to 'shop til you drop' you can visit the World Famous Sawgrass Mills Mall - only 20 minutes away.

We are less than 30 minutes away from Everglades Holiday Park in the Everglades. Boat rentals, Airboat rides, fishing and Alligator shows.

Enjoy any type of restaurant food you are craving or visit Publix or Walmart to bring your food home to cook, all within a 10 minute drive.

There are several nationally known colleges, technical institutes, and universities (Nova Southeastern University, Broward College, FAU just to name a few) to keep the area young. If you have a family member graduating, this is the perfect location to be close to the festivities.

Plus, we have the privilege of calling Davie the home of the Miami Dolphins who practice daily at Nova Southeastern University!

Within walking distance you can find a 24 hour restaurant, Bergeron Rodeo Arena, antique shops, Batten's Strawberry Farm (organic market) and much more.......

Davie is ideally located among major thoroughfares such as the Turnpike, I-595, I-75, and is within a few minutes travel to the Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades (Cruises).

If you really feel adventurous, hour and a half drive will bring you to the West Coast of Florida for a whole new coastal experience.

Come visit Davie. In the heart of everything!!!

Property was very clean and the online description was accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc. Owner lives next door and provided good customer service. I would recommend this property to my friends or relatives. owner has a list of attractions and restaurants near by and we tried flashback restaurant, which was great.

We have rented houses before and will continue to do so. But this property was simply fantastic. The owners made sure to meet us when we arrived and checked in with us once during our five day stay just to make sure we didn't need anything. Otherwise, we had our privacy to enjoy this wonderful home. Pictures online sometimes flatter a place - the pictures of this property actually undersell a little bit in my opinion. It was sparkling clean, spacious, with a wonderful backyard with a pool, hot tub and tiki bar. We were in town for our daughter's PhD graduation, so the weekend was full, but we had people over and it made for a wonderful venue.

I can't say enough good things about the property and the owners. Our security deposit was promptly refunded as well. If we find ourselves traveling to Fort Lauderdale again, this will be our place to stay.

Thanks for everything!

A hidden gem! Above and beyond any hotel you would rent.

  • 5 of 5

We are a military family and stayed here one week prior to transfer because we had just sold our home. My wife and I were extremely impressed with this quiet, peaceful, and charming rental. The owners are extremely nice and very hospitable. We had a variety of fresh fruits on the kitchen table when we arrived. The rental was very clean with nice furnishings. The best part was the amazing landscaping in the backyard by the pool and tiki bar. You can't see how incredible the landscaping is from the road but I promise you will be blown away. I would recommend this property to anyone!

From the moment we arrived, we really felt at home. Jim and Denise made everything stressful about traveling and being in a new place disappear. They made sure we knew exactly how to find the house, provided all the essentials and even had a "welcome note" for us on the table. Everything was just as described and beyond our expectations from the furnishings to the fixtures, the cleanliness and the impeccably kept grounds.

The property is located in a safe, centrally located area. We were in Davie to attend our daughter's graduation from Nursing school At Nova University, 5 minutes away! Jim and Denise also made her and her family fell VERY welcome to stay with us! We also were so close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and more and felt at the end of each day, we went back to a comfortable, safe and private retreat.

Jim and Denise made themselves available to us 24/7 and went above good customer service, what they gave us was a customer Experience!

Perfect accommodations, perfect location, we would recommend this to all and will stay again!

Clean, quiet, relaxing, excellent.

  • 5 of 5

We strongly recommend this rental if you are seeking a clean, laid-back getaway. Upon entering, we were impressed with the southeast Florida vibes, and found the place was well-stocked with surprises, like fruit. We even enjoyed access to features not mentioned on the VRBO website.

We thought the location was convenient. We were able to easily reach the beach. The owners were friendly, laid-back, and had useful tips for us to enjoy our stay.

We would come here again. We whole-heartedly recommend it.

Girls trip

  • 5 of 5

Stay, stay, stay, stay HERE!!!!

This garden house was the perfect oasis for our trip. I work in the hospitality industry including many 5 star hotels. I was blown away about Denise and Jim's attention to detail. There was a nice welcome note when we got to the house and there were so many little details to make sure we enjoyed our stay, such as board games in one of closets, coolers if we wanted to pack a lunch and go to the beach.

The house was everything we expected, but the yard was magical. We were there for three days and there were still flowers and greenery that we hadn't discovered.

Denise and Jim were available for directions or comments without hovering. It truly was a great experience, I rarely give 5 stars but this vacation home deserves it. Would go back again without hesitation. Thanks Denise and Jim!!!
