About owner/property manager

Much love and care goes into the presentation and upkeep of my home. This home was bought by my Dad 6 years ago. He was getting on in age so we tried to talk him out of buying a house but he wouldn't listen. I was his caregiver for 5 years until he passed away and left the home to me. I knew I would not be able to afford the taxes, insurances and upkeep so I decided to try VRBO. It saved me from having to sell. I live in this house when not renting so I'm a bit different than other VRBO etc. users. I try to keep my calendar undated but at times that is impossible. I also like to speak or email with the person who is inquiring to book. I am very selective but completely fair when renting my home. My choice is made by how comfortable I am with the purpose of the use of the house. I will not rent to anyone looking for a venue for a party, wedding etc. unless discussed first. I am 67 years old and do all the prep and work myself to cut costs. The landscaper is the only person I pay unless something breaks and needs replacement. I am very proud of my accomplishments and honored my Dad by naming the house Andy's Place. Yes Andrew, (daddy) I know your smiling down at me. You are all welcome, just speak to me!

Why owner/property manager chose Greater Fort Lauderdale

It is fully stocked and very neat and clean. There are no false pictures or misrepresentations of any kind. I am 15 minutes away in case of emergencies and respond immediately. If the weather in inclement the large patio still allows you to sit outside and chat or have a meal and listen to music if you'd like. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. If you want to beach it, the ride is 20 minutes away, and yes I provide chairs, boogie boards, ice packs, beach towels, umbrella and coolers. All I ask is how you found it is how you return it.

What makes this house unique

Ideal pool setting, close to stores, theaters, restaurants, etc. In a hotel you are confined to one room and everything is costly, in my home you have the choice of eating in and planning your day according to your mood and the weather.

The covered patio is great, you have the option of sitting in the sun or under the covered patio. If the weather is inclement you can still enjoy the outdoor patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These guests stayed 3 nights ( 4 adults, 2 children) . Plan was to barbecue on the beach one day then return to the house in the evening and bring a few family members for a evening enjoying the patio. Truth is they used the house as a family party venue which I said was not ok. I don't rent out my home as a venue for any kind of party. I know more people stayed in the house. It was a mess and everything in it was out of order. Simply said it has been 18 days since their check out and my home is not rentable until I get the pool water back to where it should be, which is not GREEN! I have spent countless hours, energy/manual labor, electricity and money to rectify the damage they did. I have lost income and had to file a claim for damage to my driveway. Had I realized it would take me 2 1/2 weeks and still counting I would have filed a claim for the pool also. I have not been unable to use my pool since then left. I'm off to the pool store yet again today to see what I have to do next. The green algae spots will not scrub off with the pool brush. Not to mention the temp outside is in the 90's and feeling like 100 and I have to work in that and not be able to take a dip to cool off while doing so. I am feeling very weak today after doing this yesterday! To say I'm disgusted is an understatement!

Beautifully maintained home in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited the area for the Easter Holiday. We prefer to rent a home when possible, verses staying in a hotel room when traveling. This home was very clean, practical, organized and had everything we needed. We loved the heated pool, used it everyday and sometimes at night. The kitchen has all kinds of cooking supplies if you plan to make any meals during your stay. The neighborhood was quiet and the beds were very comfortable!

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank you for taking the time to write a very thorough review. I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your Easter stay at my home. It was a pleasure meeting you, your wife and daughter. The Easter card was a special surprise, thank you. You also took the time to leave the house in such nice condition which of course I always appreciate. Your family is always welcomed back. Best Regards, Carmella

Lovely house, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Carmella met us at the house and showed us around and how to work a few things. Very friendly. The house was beautiful and spacious (just like the pictures) and the neighborhood was quiet and safe (I went running a few times) I personally loved the kitchen because I love to cook and she had every pan or utensil you would ever need!! (And quite a few spices!!) She had Beach chairs and towels. Pool area had plenty of seating in the sun or shade and I made it into the pool everyday!! Hubby and I already decided we want to come back next year! Highly recommend.

Wow!!

  • 5 of 5

We saw the pictures online and seeing in person left me speechless. The home was immaculate and so tastefully furnished. 5 adults stayed in the house and we never felt crowded. (In the beginning I was even a bit lost!) We were here for a niece's wedding and had other family members in the area both living nearby and visiting. We gathered here and had plenty of spaces for quality time visiting and catching up with family members. This family plays lot of cards and other games. Whether inside or outside we had plenty of space.We brought groceries and Carmella generously shared whatever we needed but didn't have. I wish my kitchen at home had all of the items in Carmella's kitchen! There are dishes, utensils, pans and appliances for all cooking needs. Once here all of your needs are provided for. This was a fantastic place to stay. I can only hope that if I am in that area again needing a place to stay, that this home is available! Thank you Carmella!!!

Don't Overlook Beautiful Home in Margate, Florida

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better than the pictures and description!!! Three siblings and our spouses stayed here Jan 5-9, and it was perfect for us. The snowbirds from Ohio and New Hampshire especially appreciated the pool and Florida sunshine. It's such a great house, with so may areas to gather comfortably: The gorgeous, large kitchen complete with everything you need to make a great meal; family room with comfortable seating and large TV w/awesome sound system; the living room -- so comfy and a great place to visit; the dining room where we actually seated 10 for a final family dinner. The pool area is the icing on the cake -- a sparkling pool and plenty of options for seating, in addition to the chairs and table that came in handy for meals, playing cards, and just hanging out. And every thing and every area was spotless. We had a great time being here for our niece's wedding, and next time we come to the Ft. Lauderdale area, we will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Awe, how nice Shirley for the fantastic review and for taking the time to phone me to tell me what a great time you and your family had staying at my home. Aside from the weather which wasn't perfect, you and your family were able to enjoy your time together and relax after your nieces' wedding. It makes me very happy when my guests expectations are fully met and I appreciate all the feedback. I 'm am paying attention to your comment about the privacy in the front bedroom at night with the lights on even with blinds and curtains. I have a few ideas to correct this.. Love to you all and I hope to see you back on your next vacation.

A Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 13 heavenly days at this beautiful property, tucked away in a North Lauderdale suburb of Southeast Florida. The property's online pictures are an accurate depiction of this asset. The real reward however, comes in seeing Carmella's home in-person! Simply put, it is gorgeous...magazine gorgeous!!! From the lovely tile floors to the alluring, blue water of the heated pool and the rich greenery that surrounds the property, being in her home made us feel calm and serene, and helped us to appreciate the peace of the season.

Carmella was gracious and made every effort to make us feel welcome in her home. She went over a few instructions on using some of the more technical accessories in her house, (TV's, stereo, pool heating equipment), told us that she was only a phone call away, and then left us to enjoy ourselves. Carmella and her home allowed us to have a very memorable vacation experience. We look forward to returning to this little "slice of paradise"!

Owner's Response: Your communications with me made it so easy to feel comfortable with you and your family. I am so happy that your expectations of what you wanted for vacation were fulfilled. This time of year puts an added instinct to worry about what guests will do on New Years Eve. You left the house in exceptional condition just as you promised, thank you so much Patricia! You enjoyed yourselves which is the most important thing, I welcome you and your lovely family back anytime!!! And above all you got home safely with no incident, and didn't have to deal with the tragedy at Ft. Lauderdale airport! Thank you for a great review!!!
