What a great weekend away ! We rented the house for a girls get away, there was a total of 10 of us and more than enough room. The backyard was amazing ! Very easy to get around to the different areas of Fort Lauderdale. The rental company was very responsive to any questions we had. Looking forward to renting the house again.

Reviewer Comments:

A group of 10 ladies stayed at the property in June 2017 and had a blast! The property looked like the pictures, which was refreshing. The house was clean and kept up. I am guessing because of rain, there was quite a bit of mud in front of the entrance to the shed so it made getting into it... interesting. We had one slight issue at the property, but the property management company responded immediately and sent maintenance to the house. Overall we enjoyed the property and had a great trip! Would definitely recommend this property and property management company to others. Dominique was EXTREMELY helpful and gave many great tips prior to the trip and was very accommodating. Thank you all for everything!

It was a joy to have you all join us in celebrating your friendship and we hope that get-away retreats like these can be an annual tradition in the years ahead. We invite you to be in touch when you are ready to start planning a return. Until then! Sunny Regards, Jeff and The Walker Vacation Rentals Team

Reviewer Comments:

locations is ok...close to main rd but too far from the beach... pool was the best part of the house... "spa" was not really working...guy came to fix it so we enjoyed for one day... round chair - so nasty nobody wants to sit in there.. is almost rotten.. they should dump that thing... and the best part our main sofa was broken in half and supervisor didn't really care blame on previous people who stayed... I was like you take care of this place take responsibility of that.....

Owner's Response: Dear Gigi, At WVR, we place great value in guest feedback as it allows us to know what guests enjoyed most, and in your case, we are thrilled to find that the refreshing blue pool was what won your heart. Feedback like yours also allows us to understand where there is opportunity to elevate the experience even further and we regret if specific furnishings fell short of meeting your expectations, and based on your feedback, a new couch has recently been ordered for the property and new cushions for the Bali bed. We appreciate each of your comments, and on behalf of all of us, we hope that you will plan to join us again to enjoy first-hand the recent additions and upgrades that are being added in the weeks ahead. Warm Regards, Jeff and The Walker Vacation Rentals Team

THe location and the property were amazing. It offered more than I expected. It was truly a home away from home experience and I would pick this property over and aver again. The neighborhood was beautiful, every property was well maintained. The pool and jaccuzzi were awesome and the outside grill and bar were a huge highlight. Thank you for the magnificent stay.

We enjoyed this home so much we didn't want to leave. In fact we didn't leave much at all. It was the best vacation experience we have ever had. So relaxing, peaceful, and every amenity that anyone would need on a vacation. Close to the beach and highway, without zero traffic noise. We were EXTREMELY pleased and will DEFINITELY be back! Jeff and Dominique at Walker Vacation Rentals were very easy to reach and would do just about anything to ensure that our stay was as wonderful as could be. Beautifully maintained home, clean throughout, excellent location. It was everything we had hoped for and so much more. OUTSTANDING JOB WVR!!!

We are tickled to learn that the house was everything you needed and more to enjoy a perfect tropical escape and we thank you for taking the time to highlight the attention to detail of our WVR Housekeeping team who take great pride in ensuring that each of our paradise homes are ready to greet our arriving guests. Your kind words regarding Dominique are also appreciated and have been passed along to her in celebration.

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.
