Great days in Oakland Park / Casa de la Vahle

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay in south Florida. We had group of seven people and the house worked perfectly. Felt like being at home, not a rental.

Everything works perfectly and as agreed. Pool area was great and location was perfect for traveling around the Greater Miami area / Fort Lauderdale. All needed grocery shopping was only a couple minute drive and to beach only 10 minutes. I would highly recommend the house. It’s very comfortable.

Suosittelen lämpimästi ko. taloa vuokralle. Paikka on ihanteellinen, jos matkustat Miamin / Fort Lauderdalen alueella. Miamiin noin 50 min, Sunrise n. 30 min, rannalle 10 min ja kaikki tarvittavat ruokakaupat vain muutaman minuutin päässä. Itse talo toimii hyvin isollekin ryhmälle ja kaikki toimii sovitusti. Talo on siisti ja hyvin pidetty. Takapihan allas lämmitettyine altaineen on aivan loistava. Suosittelen.

Best service ever

  • 5 of 5

With Florida in hurricane matthew's crosshairs on our arrival date our vacation seemed to be in jeopardy. Dispite of the situation our rental date was honored and Jay did an exceptional job with preparations for us. Everything was secured, shutters were In place, sufficient water was privided Jay basically went the extra mile to ensure our safety and comfort was secured. Thank you.

Our overall stay was perfect, post hurricane Matthew every thing was put back into place and our vacation went on as planed.

The house is beautifully decorated with a homey feel to it, very clean and spacious. The pool area was very welcoming most of our time was spent relaxing out there. BBQ😁

I strongly recommend renting this house from the community area to the ambience and service its a HIT !!!!

Perfect family home/villa in great location near beaches, amenities and road links

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 12 nights as a post Disney recovery with family of 3 kids (11, 14 and 16).

Location was perfect - very close to great choice of beaches, less than an hour to Miami and half that to Fort Lauderdale. Walking distance to eating options, and 5 minutes by car to a choice of supermarkets.

The villa is great. Spacious indoors, numerous TVs (not me, the kids...), loads of space/couches/all mod cons. Outside is truly an oasis - great pool, day and night, lots of options to sit and relax or play, a huge bbq. Plus lots of ingenious features: it's all lit outside, there is a covered seating area, a choice of connections between house and outside, one of which is a bathroom so you can keep the house dry.

Finally, Jay is the ideal contact - friendly, informative, professional and nearby, but not in your face or in any way intrusive.

In fact, the only thing I can whinge about is the mosquitos- but Jay told us very clearly to take precautions, plus they only liked me and the wife and not the kids, so we only have ourselves to blame!

I'd genuinely recommend this, just glad we got to stay for so long, we could happily have stayed longer!

Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Very nice spacious/clean home! Jay was very helpful and welcomed us as if we was his own family. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood and everyone seem friendly. You will instantly fall in love with the back yard...it's everything you can image a backyard needs to be complete. There was more than enough linen and dishware provided for our entire 4 night stay. My family and I truly enjoyed this vacation rental home...the only thing was missing was a bath tub. We will definitely book again for our next family trip. Viewers, I highly recommend this nice home! Very great deal for a affordable price!! Thanks Jay!! You are awesome!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and one 21 month old and we had plenty of room. The condition of the home was remarkable and well kept. We enjoyed the patio and pool area and spent a lot of time outside. We would highly recommend this rental and hope to return again one day.

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Area offers something for everyone. Whether you embrace an active lifestyle, or simply want plant yourself on a beach chair next to the pool or ocean we can accommodate.

For the shopper Las Olas Blvd in downtown Fort Lauderdale is popular as are the areas many malls in the area, including Sawgrass Mills outlet mall, one of the countries largest. If it's golf you're looking for, the area offers a multitude of fantastic courses. You can play a different course every day. South Florida also has world class scuba diving and awesome snorkeling. Three reef systems that run parallel to the coast, and numerous shipwrecks of varying sizes and depths are teaming with sea life, and provide opportunities for everyone from the beginner to the expert. A day trip to the Florida Keys or an airboat ride in the everglades is always an interesting way to spend the day. Feeling like doing a little fishing? Charter a boat, and take advantage of the fantastic salt water sport fishing this area has to offer, or head to the everglades for some of the best largemouth bass fishing you can find anywhere.

At the end of the day the dining and nightlife of downtown Fort Lauderdale, the Fort Lauderdale Beach area and Wilton Drive are always popular.

In Fort Lauderdale, your days can be as full or as empty as you like, and the sunshine is always free.
