The Space

This beautiful studio has its own private fenced in back yard with deck. Features brand new Stainless Steel kitchen Appliances, recently restored kitchen cabinets, full bathroom, 32" Flat screen TV with DVD, tons of storage space, twin Scandinavian style arm chairs - super comfy!, coffee table and dining bar. Two parking spaces, your own front porch & Car wash area.

Just minutes from Downtown, a stay in South Middle River will give you close access to all that the area has to offer, without the expense of the ritzy downtown neighborhoods.

Property is in close proximity to: Downtown fort Lauderdale, The Beach, The Galleria Mall, Las Olas Blvd., The Riverfront and the Museum district. Fort Lauderdale International Airport is about a 12 minute drive.

Within walking distance is Hot Dog Heaven (south Florida;s best rendition of the Chicago natives); a great little Peruvian walk-up restaurant; Frida & Sharo Cuban Restaurant; Subway; McDonalds; Checkers & More. Warfield Park; The Fresh Market; Office Depot; Home Depot; Walgreens and several other convenient retailers are also close by.

Experience the rhythm of Fort Lauderdale in the city’s most actively involved community: South Middle River. This ethnically diverse neighborhood has strong influence from the city’s past, and is alive and kicking with character. There are strong Caribbean, Latin American and even European immigrants living side by side with working class and young professional Americans of all walks of life.

Bus connection to the central terminal is a block away which will connect to all south florida points.

Check In
  • Robert was quite accommodating which was quite welcome after a lousy flight. He saw to it that our room was ready by 11am, which meant that we could drop off our bags and be out to explore FLL in search of food. Robert saw that we were in need of caffein and food, so he even drove us to the local Cuban restaurant - great guy!

    The apartment was very nice (not quite as big as I had thought from the picture but perfect for our purposes). The water was solar heated which is great for the planet but meant for not quite so hot of a shower.

    Unfortunately I had a lot of work to do during the day so I was stuck inside using the wifi. My girlfriend would have a better description of the neighborhood, as she was out walking around by herself. She found it to be 'OK' but at times while she was alone found some unwanted attention including cat calls and rude comments.

  • My stay at Robert's studio was very enjoyable. There was a glitch with the airbnb calender in the booking process, but robert sorted things out admirably, upgrading me to his studio unit and honoring our original pricing - well done Robert - very much appreciated. The sudio itself was excellent, just as depicted in the description and photgraphs. It is comfortable and well equipped and it is a bonus that Robert is running an eco set-up with everything. The studio was perfectly set up for my arrival and little if anything could be improved on. The area is not the best in Ft. Lauderdale, but it is very quiet and residentail, reasonably close to all the main features and has good shopping and amenities nearby. I didn't see robert other than one time, so i had lots of privacy. Robert is a very interesting and educated host and i would have liked to have more time in his company. I hopefully will be able to avail myself of his hospitality on any future visit to Ft. Lauderdale.

  • This location is a great choice. Robert and Amelia run their properties very well. This location has a nice private fenced yard and it's a really cozy and super tidy spot with all that you'll need to sleep, cook, work and relax. I was really comfortable here and was able to recharge and get a lot done. The Wifi is fast and the TV/Living spot is settling. The bed is firm and comfortable. I really like the way Robert has redone the place but left some original features. It's a place I would live in long term. You'll be comfy with a car here but you are within walking distance to some stores, restaurants and parks. I think what's really great is that Robert and Amelia are available by phone or text if you need them and always accommodating. But I never needed anything during this stay.

  • Robert and Amelia were so communicative and helpful! The studio was beautifully surrounded by just enough foliage to sit on the back patio and enjoy the breeze, flora, and fauna! Kitchen fully stocked- I was even able to cook a steak-Gordon Ramsey style! Great price, great location, and great hosts! Would definitely recommend anyone to stay!

  • What can I say? I liked the place so much that I decided to come back after a few days visiting family in Tampa. You cant beat the price, the tranquility of the space and Robert's hospitality. Both him and Amelia are super responsive and very accommodating. I cant thank them enough but will try when I get back tomorrow. Thanks again guys!!!!

British host welcomes you to the cool corner of Fort Lauderdale... Having had many great experiences with AirBNB both as a host and as a guest, I will make it my business to make sure you enjoy your stay and that your needs are taken care of. My hobbies include Sailing, Biking, Running, Home Improvement, Skiing (Althought to be honest - the skiing down here really sucks!), spending time at restaurants by the water enjoying the company of friends. Bit of a documentary buff and news junkie! Really enjoy learning about people from other places, the world is an interesting place to me. I am an avid environmentalist - although more of a Green Entrepeneur than a tree hugger. Trying to stop the abuse of the earth is a big issue in my life. Thats me - just come on over and enjoy your stay! I live at my loft in Riverside Park which is about a 10 minute drive from my other listings: 50's Eco Friendly Studios
