REVIEWS FROM ANOTHER VACATION RENTAL SITE:

We absolutely fell in love with this home! It was really hard to leave. One feels instantly comfortable and relaxed upon entering the house. The view on the lake is beautiful and the neighborhood is so peaceful. We fed the baby ducks, watched the fish jump, paddled out for a kayak trip, swam in the pool and relaxed around the pool with wi-fi, iPads in hand, all day long. We barbecued dinner at night and never wanted to leave the house to explore the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area. When we did venture out we found wonderful restaurants, shopping and beaches close by. It is a perfect location. It's was truly one of our best vacations ever. Just 45 minutes from Miami beach, we were able to go enjoy the night life there without staying in the madness of the city. Just 5 minutes from downtown Fort Lauderdale with it's wonderful restaurants and shopping and one mile from Lauderdale by the Sea beach. Kevin the host was incredible. He lives close by and is always available for all questions or requests. His welcome is so warm and inviting, he really helps you feel at home right from the start. Beautiful home, quiet neighborhood, gorgeous lake view and pool with an excellent host! Really a superb vacation rental. Will definitely rent again.
The house was very nice. The view and the pool were breathtaking. The location in Ft. Lauderdale was perfect. I t was the perfect place to relax at after a day at the beach or shopping and dining in the fine restaurants on my favorite street in Florida, Las Olas. Kevin was the perfect host, very discrete and nearby to take care of your needs. I would definitively come back next year... Time went definitively too fast....
My wife and my brother and his wife enjoyed our stay this past November and early December at "Villa Far Niente." The owner is very cordial and friendly, and the kitchen is nicely stocked with seasonings and condiments, so no need to go out and buy salt, etc. It easily accommodates four adults, and is a short distance from Lauderdale-by-the-Sea beach area, shopping, and restaurants. A lovely pool on the property overlooks the lake in the back of the property. Only 15 minutes from downtown Ft. Lauderdale and Las Olas Boulevard via Federal Highway or I-95, and about 20 minutes from FLL airport. A very good price, too! Thanks, Kevin!!
The service received from Kevin made all the difference to choose our home stay in Fort Lauderdale.
His kindness and timely response gave the confidence to proceed forward in this, our first experience with (vacation rental web site).
His kindness was further strengthened on our arrival, to be greeted with a very warm welcome and orientation.
The house is very well located and has a lake view as a strong point.
Really the neighborhood is very quiet and safe, and a few minutes from excellent beaches, restaurants and the typical abundant trade of the region.
This property is everything you expect a relaxing Ft. Lauderdale vacation to be. A warm breeze through the palm trees, a glass of wine and a breathtaking sunset across the lake started our evenings. For nature lovers, the lake has a surprising number of jumping fish, birds and turtles. For walkers, once around the lake is a great scenic tour. We found the house quiet, spacious and comfortably furnished. I can’t imagine a better host than Kevin, quick to respond to any question or request. I highly recommend this rental for anyone who wants a peaceful alternative to a noisy hotel.

Where to start? Kevin is the commensurate host. He met us upon arrival, toured the property and briefed us on the area. We were disappointed when he had to depart. The house is just wonderful with a central location within 9 minutes of the ICW and Lauderdale Beach’s new plaza and amazing Friday night party. The lake to watch the sun play on and the pool with which to greet both dusk and dawn. Thanks Kevin, we hope to see you and enjoy your property again soon.
Great home and attentive host! Thank you, Kevin!
You will enjoy the space and privacy of this beautiful, relaxing home. The pool is yours and you have a poolside cabana with ceiling fans if you need to cool down or read a good book.
Interaction with Guests
I live only 4 houses away and am happy to assist with sightseeing, restaurant suggestions and anything else which will make your stay the best possible experience!
While this is a tranquil residential neighborhood, you are only minutes away from shopping, bars, restaurants and one of the best beaches (1.5 miles). If you enjoy walking, it's one mile around the lake.
A car is essential in all of Ft. Lauderdale.
Other Things to Note
Make sure that you are around for our amazing sunsets. It's a western exposure from your back yard/pool overlooking the lake, so the sun will set only after providing a beautiful spectrum of colors.
For everyone's comfort, smoking outside only please. MAIN RULE: Have an amazing & memorable stay in your tropical paradise!
Kevin welcomed us to the home very graciously and gave us great suggestions for local restaurants, etc. We were there for sunset, which is beautiful over the small spring lake behind the pool. The property is in a safe-feeling neighborhood with a one-mile walk loop around the lake that has little auto traffic. We did go to the beach, but wound up spending most of our three-day-weekend stay at the comfy house around the pool, grilling out, and enjoying the view of the shore birds and jumping fish... Kevin gave us directions to a local publix and we found a wonderful fresh fish market that had just what we needed for the grill... nice stay! The home is really set up great for this!
Kevin was a good host. He met us immediately, showed us around, provided tips on restaurants and activities in the area. The house had all the amenities we needed to enjoy our time in Fort Lauderdale. It is easy to find and close enough to any activity we wanted to attend. Overall comfortable.
The house could have been cleaned more thoroughly including the pool.
This house is everything we could have dreamed of.. from the views to the hospitality of Kevin- it was the perfect weekend. The pictures do not do justice to this property. From the moment we booked, Kevin answered any of our questions and was met us upon arrival to give us the tour. He provided hot spots and restaurants for us- although he was right, we never wanted to leave this relaxing home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a home away from that is just 2 miles from the beach.
This place is beautiful very relaxing my Father passed away this place really helped my mother we really enjoyed our stay
O atendimento recebido do Kevin fez toda a diferença para escolhermos sua casa em nossa estada em Fort Lauderdale.
Sua amabilidade e rapidez nas respostas deram a confiança necessária para prosseguirmos em frente nesta nossa primeira experiência com o Airbnb.
Sua gentileza foi ainda mais reforçada quando de nossa chegada, ao sermos recebidos com um refrescante café da manhã preparado por ele.
A casa é muito bem localizada e tem a vista para o lago como ponto forte.
Realmente o bairro é muito tranquilo e seguro, mas a poucos minutos de excelentes praias, restaurantes e do comércio abundante típico da região.
We had a wonderful stay in Fort Lauderdale! Kevin is a gracious host. He provided us with valuable suggestions for dining and sightseeing from a local's perspective. He is accessible, personable, responsible and accommodating. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood central to all the dining, shopping, and sights we wanted to enjoy. We look forward to enjoying his hospitality for our next stay in sunny Florida. Thank you Kevin!
We wanted to have a winter get-away and we could not have been happier with our choice of accommodations. Kevin the host was exceptional with communication, helpfulness and thoughtful touches before and during our arrival. This was my first airbnb experience and I would have to say that Kevin has set the bar at a level I hope continues in future experiences.
The home is private, comfortable and very relaxing. The access from the airport is a breeze as well as traveling in the area. I know that we will be returning in future holidays !!
