As Presented; Owner/Manager Prompt and Attentive

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with family over New Years. 13 in all and all comfortable with their accommodations. Drawbacks are limited bathrooms and the need to share and kitchen is not suitable for large meal preparation. We had three dinners catered in and ate out for other evening meals. Lunches and breakfasts fine, as folks eat in shifts. Out largest party was well accommodated for a sit down meal. Pool great, as are the many gathering areas affording each branch of the family privacy.

The very, very prompt attention of the owner to any questions can not be beat.

Enjoyable Thanksgiving week with extended family spanning three generations.

  • 4 of 5

Parrot Hall provided a unique and comfortable environment in a superb location. Within close walking distance to beach and shopping, the house is also a short drive to services and recreational opportunities. The house is attractive on the exterior, has well maintained grounds and offers multiple gathering and relaxing spaces both inside and out. While somewhat dated, the decor includes fun and interesting artwork, nice bedrooms and baths, and a general aura of warmth and coziness within gracious square footage. Kitchen was well equipped and attractive, but did not have a disposal. The pool and surrounding outside areas were a particular hit with all ages in our group, and the heated pool temperature was perfect for late November.

We did, however, experience an unexpected series of issues soon after we arrived including no CATV reception, pool maintenance wanting to close and shock pool, and inoperable pool lighting. The owner did quickly step in and resolve all matters, except pool lighting, in a reasonably fast manner. These events followed a much more troubling finding just two days before our arrival. I had rented this house primarily because of its waterfront location and dock, and had confirmation from owner in writing 10 months before arrival that I could dock a 26 foot boat during our stay. In spite of this fact, I was told at the last minute that our boat could not be accommodated due to spacing regulations related to a boat that was already docked at the house. The owner offered and did pay my off-site marina docking fees, but this was a very unexpected inconvenience.

Overall, in spite of noted issues, we enjoyed our stay and I recommend this property to other prospective renters. The owner was very courteous and concerned about our problems, most of which were beyond his control, and did try to do the right thing in response.

Family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

Parrot Hall was perfect for our family reunion. We enjoyed the many living and dining spaces indoors and out. There were plenty of beds for our group. The Las Olas location was ideal.

It could be called Paradise Hall-That's what it felt like!

  • 5 of 5

The stay at Parrot Hall could not have been more perfect from the beginning of the rental experience to the day we checked out. The owner was very accommodating and responsive to all requests and inquiries.

Parrot Hall itself was fabulous. The rooms were spacious and it was obvious that the owner was very cognizant of the needs of guests. We were there for an anniversary party for my brother and his wife. Although we all left Parrot Hall to go to the anniversary party, the majority of the house just stayed at Parrot Hall for the stay. There was no reason to leave. Some of us did venture out. We walked up to the oceanfront and had lunch one day and brunch the next. There were very nice restaurants to the west on Las Olas Boulevard but also on the Oceanfront.

I had researched several houses and the responsiveness of the owner made me decide on this house. It was a great decision and I highly recommend Parrot Hall.

Beautiful property in ideal neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely fantastic -- beautifully appointed, spacious, and 5 mins from the beach. Plenty of sleeping areas for larger groups, and a fantastic outdoor communal area make this an ideal vacation rental.

Unlike most properties, the photos hardly do it justice -- this place is a 10/10.

The house was so beautiful and clean! The pool was amazing. There was a lot of room to accommodate our group. Also, the owner was very accommodating and responded quickly to any questions we had. I would definitely book with him again either at this property or another one he has!
