About the property

Nautical 1 Bedroom 1 Bath ( Sleeps 6 Easy ) Pullout / Daybed / Couches Etc

Thanks for looking at the Fort Lauderdale BOAT HOUSE located directly on the Dania Cut Off Canal -

( If this home is rented, please check our sister Maritime Home at vrbo 500894 - Both Homes are perfect rentals for the Fort Lauderdale /Hollywood /Dania area.)

With OR without a vessel, the home is ULTRA secluded...however, if you do have a TRANSPORT VEHICLE:

1) MARINE: Up to 50' foot boat docking available here with plenty of room for RV's, boat trailers, campers etc - Perfect for mariners who want to use their own boats ( or rent our small 16' foot run around *add ) kayakers, paddle boarders, anyone who wants to explore the rich waters here in SE Florida with a home RIGHT ON THE DANIA CUT OFF CANAL - Kayaker's and small boats all easy launch 1.5 miles away.

(2) HIGHWAY: RV's campers, large trucks etc - Plenty of parking for the LARGE VEHICLE TYPE.

RV / Large vehicle parking : 100 per week + RENTAL agreement - Hookup to power avail.

Campers, pop-ups, etc all easy will fit on the 1/2 acre lot.

(3) NONE: Just enjoy the hidden gem without additional transport; Super close to the HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO ( 4 minutes away )

Ever wanted to go to Bimini ? How bout Key Biscayne ? How bout Peanut Island or Boca Chita ? These are places every TRUE Captain or water explorer needs to see before he takes the plunge ! This Nautical Boat House is for you, the outdoor adventurer. A launch boat ramp is within .5 miles of the home and there's plenty of parking for your trailer. There's an on - premise ICE MAKER and a large private dock just waiting for you to set sail from right from Fort Lauderdale -

By water, heading west around the loop, takes you up through downtown Ft. Lauderdale, and on the canal you have 17 ft. clearance; heading east on the water under I-95, you have 10 ft. clearance directly out to the intracoastal waterways - Both directions lead you out to PORT EVERGLADES, past the giant cruise ships and out to sea, the Mighty Atlantic Ocean!

The house is immaculate and decked out for the explorer type. Pristine wood work, old cypress lamps, a jacuzzi, a whirlpool bathtub, dual shower heads, full kitchen, a galley, tons of space and SUPER SECLUDED; You have a private gated entrance and NO-ONE will ever see you once you're inside the property - This is a true outdoor adventurer's paradise.

* Yes, we are near the airport and you will see / hear airplanes overhead. If this is an issue for you, please look elsewhere, I understand - However,

If you just want an ULTRA secluded place 1.5 miles from the Hard Rock, 3 miles from the beach, 5 miles from Fort Lauderdale Beach, 10 minutes from Hollywood, and 2 minutes from FLL International with OCEAN ACCESS, you've found the secret spot ~

Right next to the canal where you can watch the wildlife or fish off the dock. Great people that made sure you had everything you needed to have a good stay. Nice and clean and fully stock with all the necessities. Looking forward to the next trip

Perfect for the Family or a couples retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week! Family flew in to join my husband and I and though there is only one bedroom, there were plenty of options for sleeping. We brought air mattresses but didn't need them with a full size box spring and mattress in the closet, daybed in the captains quarters, futons and cots, everyone was more than comfortable.

Secluded in the heart of the city! Very private yet minutes from everything- beach, parks, restaurants, groceries, Hard Rock and the Airport. The property is beautiful and maintained and Kevin is a gracious host who allows access (at your own risk) to another portion of his property, with access to a fishing dock and large pavilion with plenty of seating for all. Our (adult) kids and grandkids appreciated some local fishing advice.

All in all a wonderful vacation with a gracious host and we HIGHLY recommend a stay at The Boat House. Thank you Kevin - We will book with you again.

Go Tigers!

  • 4 of 5

The Boat House was perfect for our stay. We came down to see the Clemson Tigers play in the Orange Bowl and this house was perfectly located. Pretty much 20 minutes away from everything, including the stadium, and super close the interstate. The house had plenty of room for the 6 of us. The wifi worked well and the bathroom was a really nice size. Additionally, we loved not having any warm water problems with the shower. The water was still warm after 6 straight showers. The back yard is amazing as is the hot tub. Highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again.
