Reviewer Comments:

The property was in a great place close to shops and beach. It's a good quality house with nice pool and hot tub. Although the management should pay more attention to cleaning crew that's taking care of the house. Floors were very dirty and we had to clean them before entering the property. The shed were kayaks were kept was so messy. It looked so nice on a picture but in reality was not. Everything was thrown on a floor and nothing was placed where it belongs. I spent an hour to organize the shed so we could find anything in there.

Owner's Response: Dear Ewa, Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions, and it was a pleasure hosting you. We’re delighted to read that the home’s address lead to many convenient trips to Ft. Lauderdale’s fabulous shops and restaurants, as well as the sandy shores. Unfortunately not all guests leave the home in the same condition as you did, and we regret if any unavoidable disorganization impacted your stay, and following your review we will be certain to review our cleaning protocols and work on them with our team. We hope that you will return to give us another opportunity to exceed your every expectation. Warm regards, Jeff and The Walker Vacation Rentals Team

great house for 8 guys who were on a 5 day vacation for golf, Panthers game and Dolphins game. Had all the amenities. Overall a 5 star for what our needs were. Our main contact, Jasmine, was very responsive to some little issues that arose; she was very polite and professional.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall the house and pool were great. Everything was as expected. The house was adequate for 11 girls, the pool and hot tub were amazing. However, I do not recommend this house if you are worried at all about noise. We understood the noise ordinance to begin at 10pm, as such we went inside at 10. However, we still received a complaint from the neighbors and were told that we needed to quiet down when it got dark. Since it gets dark around 6pm this made using the hot tub relatively impossible without fear of being kicked out of the house.

after such a terrible hurricane, we were not expecting this place to be ready in that condition, but when we saw the inside and the surroundings we were happy and really appreciated it. BIG THANKS TO THE MEMBERS AND STAFF. Looking forward to our next stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Where do I even start!?! We didn't spend a lot of time in the house as we were out doing activities but what time we did spend in the house was awesome! The bedrooms were spacious, all of the beds were comfortable, even the couch was comfortable. They provided more than enough towels and blankets. The pool and outdoor area was awesome! The vacuum that normally stays in the pool to keep it clean wasn't in there during our stay so we did have a lot of leaves but we used the skimmer and made due. However, the spa didn't work, it didn't get hot and the jets were relatively non-existent. We weren't in the house much so I'm not sure anyone really minded but it would've been nice to have. The property was described accurately, the pictures were exactly how the place looked. Other than the hot tub everything worked great! The house and property were clean and maintained. Jeff was great and answered all my questions before arriving but during our stay I spoke to Jasmine mostly, let me just say that girl is AMAZING. Answered all of our questions, let us check in early because of an issue with the cable, we even asked her to come out with us one night. I would def recommend this property! As for attractions, we did the Spirit of Fort Lauderdale Catamaran, ate at Coconuts and Spazio's, drank and danced at Elbo Room, America's Backyard and Capone's. We had brunch at YOLO's which was amazing. River Walk was awesome, we LOVED all the bars and restaurants. The golf cart cabs were awesome too. One word of caution, the neighbor to the left of the house (if your standing in the front) is horrible. She complained constantly about us being loud in the middle of the day because we had music on and were talking. Came out and told us she works from home so we had to be quiet. She's seriously rude and shouldn't live next to a rental property if she doesn't like hearing people talk. We loved our stay at Flying Fish Villa and would recommend to everyone!

Location

If you are looking for a great location minutes to all the local attractions this is it. We are conveniently located central to miami and the palm beaches in the heart of Oakland Park. We are close to all major highways and only a short drive to fort lauderdale international airport. This beautiful home is located in the oakland park subdivision of coral heights bordering fort lauderdale and only minutes to wilton manors. The ocean and beach are just a few minutes away and las olas boulevard (famed for it's food, shopping, and entertainment) is a short drive. Every direction you go from this home you will find entertainment. With fort lauderdale dubbed the 'venice of america' and the yachting capital of the world, you have easy access to many marinas where you can charter and rent boats. If eco-tourism is your interest we have everglades national park where you can view the wildlife. Seminole hardrock casino is within a 30 minute drive where you can enjoy gambling, retail, entertainment, and dining. Las olas boulevard has fun for the whole family with dining, entertainment, and culture including the fort lauderdale museum of art, cinema's, museum of science, and discovery and broward center for performing arts. There are multiple concert and sports venues through south florida including the bank atlantic center, american airlines arena, dolphin stadium, and more.
