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!

Very clean, perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Large house with loads of space and sitting rooms. We had a large group of 10 adults for a trade show and the house was perfect. Loved the fun, beachy and quirky decor. Great escape from show. Owner responded quickly to all messages - much appreciated. Thank you!

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.

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.
