Overview

About the property

Casa Mahogany is a private, cozy and relaxing tropical oasis.

Casa Mahogany is a cozy and relaxing hideaway surrounded by tropical plants and a sturdy 100 ft mahogany tree protected by Florida endangered species society. It is home to squirrels, bright green Iguanas, blue Jay birds and at times green wild Parakeets make a stop on its canopy to take a break. Next to the tree, sharing a little of its shadow, is an inviting pool and Jacuzzi that contours the landscape.

Rent boat or jet ski nearby and greet your guests at the wooden dock. The open ocean is only 20-25 minutes’ boat ride away!

Spend a quiet time fishing under the mahogany tree while enjoying the ocean breeze. The backyard faces the ocean to the east and in the morning you can often enjoy a beautiful sunrise and sometimes in the evening an impressive full moon.

Casa Mahogany from the moment you walk in, you get a feeling of spacious, relaxing, non-cluttered space yet a place that makes you feel comfortable right away. The house is an open plan design with water views visible from all rooms. It has 3 large bedrooms, 2 and half bathrooms and a large Florida room with a bar, 48” HDTV and plenty of seating. The kitchen is fully equipped, there is a separate laundry room and a relaxing outdoor patio, accessible from all rooms in this bungalow. All beds have 100% cotton sheets and guest are provided 100% premium quality cotton bath and hand towels.

About Nigel and Maria Smith

Welcome to Casa Mahogany. My wife's and I truly enjoyed our home in Pompano Beach, Florida where we lived for 18 years. We loved being by the water. There is something peaceful, calming and spiritual about being close to it and the nature it attracts.

Nigel and Maria Smith purchased this house in 1998

Why Nigel and Maria Smith chose Garden Isles

We purchase this our home some 18 yrs ago. It is in a beautiful location on 70 ft waterfront, a 120 ft wide canal and home to a 100 ft endangered Mahogany tree. At that time the house was in dire need of repair. Since then we have completely modernized the home and backyard. Upgrading the kitchen, all the bathrooms, bedrooms and floors. A new roof patio, Pool with Spa have all been installed. We created our our paradise and truly enjoyed the outdoor pleasures of Florida starting right from our backyard, Kayaking, jet skiing and fishing. Boating to waterside restaurants, open blue ocean of golden beaches.

What makes this house unique

I have seen manatees basking, 5 ft tarpon splashing, ospreys swooping down for fish, stingrays, iguanas, squirrels and beautiful sunsets; as well as being surrounded by water (canal, pool and 2 miles from the beach) there is an abundance of places to dine. We like to treat ourselves to good and varied food so have listed many places for you to visit in our Guest book.

April 2017

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay here over Spring Break. The backyard is so peaceful with the pool, hot tub, a great view and canal breezes to keep you cool. The house is set up great for large or small groups. Bedrooms have good separation and there are many futons available for kids. The bathrooms make you feel that you are at a spa! The owners have stocked the house with lots of extras like pool toys, fishing poles and laundry supplies which make it super convenient and they are very responsive if you need anything. Lastly Pompano is a great town and the beach is really nice too. Thank you Nigel and Maria!

We enjoyed our stay, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Intel's home in Florida. We came there as a family of 6 adults and one infant. The location was great and close to everything!! The home was clean and comfortable with a great view in the backyard. We enjoyed swimming, fishing, and relaxing on the back porch. Would definitely rent again.

A great location to access South Florida

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and watching the kids chase the wildlife. This was a great "base camp" to easily access all that South Florida had to offer. It will be on our list to return to when we vacation in Florida again. The owners were quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our stay and provided great resources for the local area attractions and needs.

Beautiful house, nice location.

  • 4 of 5

Everything about this house was great. The only issue we ran into was trouble with the water temperature in the spa. That was going to get fixed. it would have been nice if it had been working. The intercoastal location was perfect and there was a lot of space inside the house for our group of 8.

A month at Casa Mahogany

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I just returned from spending a month at lovely Casa Mahogany. The house is much larger and spread out which is especially good if you have guests staying with you. Most of the couches were also futons so you could accommodate guests besides the bedrooms. The outside was just beautiful and we spent as much time out there as possible. The pool and hot tub were amazing. Nigel the owner though not local was always available to help with anything we needed, and the next door neighbors were actually caretakers and couldn't be more helpful. On the downside was the living room seating which were quite uncomfortable. The owner is in the process of changing to more comfortable seating. Also a table and chairs for the outside would be helpful. Overall we had a wonderful stay.

We had an amazing holiday with memories that will stay with us forever.

Owner's Response: Jade and her family were excellent guests. Considerate, helpful and a pleasure to communicate with before and while at the house. So glad you were able to celebrate and capture lifetime memories. Be more than happy to accomodate you and the family in the future if you ever wanted to return to Florida and create new memories. :)
