Beautiful, well maintained house. We had everything we needed for an wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

A couple of families totaling 14. Plenty of room for all. The house was beautifully decorated. Loved all the siting rooms! The pool was amazing, huge outside patio with plenty of room for sunbathing and hanging out under the veranda. We spent a lot of time outside. About a mile walk to the beach. Bill promptly answered any questions we had. We would definitely come back!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded expectations.... our 4 families of 14 people found Parrot Hall comfortable, clean and perfect for a week in Fort Lauderdale. adequate bedrooms, numerous seeing areas, so there was plenty of room for enjoying our stay. Kitchen is well-equipped and was used for breakfast, someone’s house and dinnners. Heated Pool wasthe center for daytime activity, But Beach was within walking distance andProvided a great alternative.

Perfect experience!

  • 4 of 5

Location is an A plus and the house suited our needs perfectly. We had our grown children and their children and it worked well for all. Rooms (excluding kitchen) are spacious and everything felt like home. Really enjoyed the original artwork, the nice sized pool and the outdoor living space. Great area for morning walks to shopping or the beach. Will certainly return in the future!
