If you have a car:
Most places charge extra $5 to $10 per day for parking. Free parking is offered as a courtesy. In return, I expect to count with your valuable cooperation during your stay to keep the parking spaces neatly organized. If you decide to use the parking facilities, Self Valet Parking rules apply. Cars have to be parked very close to each other on blue driveway ALL THE TIME and car keys have to be left accessible in the kitchen cabinet if you block another car. Parking on lawn is permitted ONLY IF more than 3 cars on driveway. In the event you have to park on lawn, park on a 45 degree angle, facing the trees, starting from the plot corner. Use the lawn spots ONLY IF strictly necessary. House is in a residential area, and the City of Fort Lauderdale requires NOT TO PARK ON LAWN as per Code Compliance. Driveway fits up to 4 cars if well parked. If you need to leave very early, please disclose it to the other guests with cars, and verify yours is the last parked before going to bed, to avoid moving other guest cars in the morning. Do not hesitate to ask for help to other guests or me if you need assistance.
It is extremely important to follow these rules strictly if you are going to use the parking facilities
Optionally, you can park elsewhere if you prefer not to use the parking space I offer.
There is a parking lot located 1 block from the house (check terms & conditions with them)
Thank you for your understanding! Happy holidays
Don't worry; relax, be happy! You're staying in paradise. Make yourself at home.
I enjoyed my stay at Carlos' place. It's a really comfortable house in a great and safe neighborhood. Carlos also had bicycles to borrow which came handy!
Carlos is an amazing and very welcoming host, he made sure I have a great Christmas break in South Florida. The house has beautiful common areas and an impressive tropical-themed backyard. It's very close to I-95 and Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.
Great stay. Carlos is very welcoming and helpful. A great host.
Carlos was a gracious host. Clean and safe room. I would recommend to anyone staying in the area.
Carlos was a very welcoming host with beautiful accommodations. The neighborhood is very quiet and Carlos is an extremely nice host. Hollywood Beach is only minutes from this location!
It was a great experience. Carlos's house was as I expected, but nicer, and there was a wonderful, warm atmosphere there. I felt like I was staying with longtime family friends instead of people I had just met. The neighbourhood was good. Safe and very convenient with my car, as it is very close to the I-95 and there are lots of restaurants, grocery stores, and whatever else you need pretty close by. Ft. Lauderdale itself is a place I really like. Easy to get around with a car, not too much traffic, not too far from Miami, near the other towns in the area like Boca Raton, nice beaches, and pretty relaxed and not hectic at all.
Carlos is a really decent and friendly guy. I will definitely stay there again the next time I am in the area.
