We really enjoyed our two-nite stay
Carlos went out of his way
To make our visit of comfort and ease
An alternative to nondescript motels that don't please
Relaxed and social, foreign movies, brightly decorated
With a nautical theme that is not Overstated
Well equipped kitchen, we give it 2/2 Likes
Only disappointed about one of the advertised but flat, unrideable "free bikes"
We stayed here expecting to pedal the Ft. Lauderdale coast
Even inquiring about them in advance, unlike most
Of the guests, who camped outside
So if you're looking for biking specifically, you may be denied
find a better prepared host, there may be no "free" ride
Thank you for your feedback! I have 4 new bikes which are always ready for guests. 1 of them is a women's bike which was the bike with flat tire the day you were to use it. The other 3 bikes were ready to use . It was a really very unusual coincidence (Murphy's Law), I always keep extra new tubes in the maintenance room to change them in case a flat tire happens. The problem was that we discovered the flat tire in the morning and you had a very narrow slot of time to bike before your flight. So I was unable to fix the tire in a so short period of time.
I owe you a bike trip :-) the next time you are coming to visit me!
Carlos was very friendly and made my visit a pleasant one would recommend it to anyone..easy person to talk to....
Carlos is very nice and always keep the house tidy and compfy. It is really a well designed housing that you may want to stay and chat with other guests or watch TV in the living room, and any other thing. I recommend it very much. And it is pretty convenient to do laudry here as well. Parking is not an issue either.
The place had a warm feeling and was very clean & quiet. Carlos was outstanding and the place exceeded my expectations. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others for a good night sleep! Also the location was great close to freeway and Walmart supercenter etc. Carlos even has bikes and other accessories you can use while staying there. This property has over and above service excellence and amenities for sure!
Beyond brilliant. I work in the hospitality industry, and know something about the way guests are treated, both ideally and in reality. Rarely do they converge, but when they do I feel obligated to give a shout out!
Carlos is a superb host, with just the right balance of being around and letting you be, keeps an immaculate property, and adds all the right touches. He delivers precisely what he describes and I cannot imagine a better value for the money. The best place for a budget conscious stay in Fort Lauderdale.
Carlos's place is nicely furnished and extremely well-kept. It's clear he looks after the place with a constant eye on improvement and guest satisfaction. He's really nice and warm and was willing to help with any questions or concerns. The neighborhood is conveniently located too: just a 15min drive from the shore. Would love to stay again in the future.
Staying at carlos' place was an experience that I will never forget. It inspired to do this more and to do it at my house. He is very organized and always ready to help and make things easier. If you like peace, you will be happy there, if you like interacting with people, you can do that as it is a full house. Everybody was respectful and enjoyable and I think it has a lot to do with the atmosphere that Carlos creates. I would stay there again even if I had a choice of staying somewhere else for Free. Carlos' dedication and hospitality is rare!
