We had a wonderful time at Christina's River House. She is a great host and made sure we knew where attractions were in the area. House was very clean and well appointed. The back patio with the pool and "hut" is terrific and and we spent many a happy evening there!! Highly recommend staying here.

Staying at the River Beach Home was a wonderful and relaxing experience. I live in the area and needed a place to stay for a month due to water damage in my own home, so being able to stay in this centrally located home made life a lot easier. It's close to the Turnpike, 10 minutes from Dania and Ft Lauderdale Beaches, and only about 20 minutes from Sawgrass Mall. Not only was the home a great place, but Jim & Chris were amazing hosts who helped make the experience as great as it was. If I were coming down to Ft Lauderdale on vacation I'd rather stay in a home like Jim and Chris's to have my own 'private pool' right on the water where I can see wildlife up close and personal, than stay in some hotel. I truly loved everything about this house and would recommend it to anyone in need of a place to stay - be it for vacation or a quick getaway for renovations in their own home.

Thanks Jim & Chris!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have been back a week and miss Florida already!!! We found this house on short notice and were quite impressed. Enough living area both inside and out for 2 teenagers and 2 adults. Loved being on the Intercoastal, saw so many creatures that we don't get here at home ie: iguana's, turtles, blue crabs and different kinds of fish. The house was a comfortable stay, with all the necessities required. We were only about 10-15 minutes away from the Fort Lauderdale beach, and 20 minutes away from Sawgrass Mall (which was a bonus).

We all enjoyed our stay and would venture back any time!!

Thank you Chris and Jim.

I was in need of extra accommodations to hold our family reunion. We live in the same neighborhood so the close proximity was wonderful. i cant say enough about the property. The house was beautiful and very well kept up. It had all the amenities and the owners were a a delight to deal with. They were friendly and really went out of the way to to make my relatives feel welcome and comfortable. I would highly recommend this home to anyone needing a place to stay in Fort Lauderdale.
