The Space

Enjoy the quintessential Fort Lauderdale experience in the city's coolest yet family friendly neighborhood - Riverside Park.

Lush, Tropical atmosphere. Shade trees abound and narrow winding lanes are graced by a wide variety of architectural style homes that hi-light the city's history. Just a block from the New River and a 2 minute drive to downtown, this is the perfect location for your Fort Lauderdale stay.

This second floor apartment is located on a very quiet street. Oak trees and tropical palms provide a cooling shade from the Florida Sun. The apartment is spacious, flooded with natural light and features all the modern amenities you would need.

Your private room has an en-suite full bathroom which has just been fully remodeled and has ample closet space, a small study nook and large closet. Fresh linens are provided weekly.

You will enjoy full access to the shared kitchen which has also just been fully remodeled, dining room and living room. Cable TV, DVD player, Free high speed internet. Apartment has central AC and is illuminated with Eco-friendly LED lighting. I leave early in the mornings and work long days so most of the time you will have the place to yourself, its just me when I am home and I think I'm fairly easy to get along with!
Riverside Park has numerous parks within it. Amenities range from childrens playground, dog park, exercising and running tracks and even a wetlands preserve. Tennis courts, clubhouse and basketball court are also in one of the parks.

Unlike any other neighborhood in the city, Riverside Park has a couple of small eateries right in the middle of the neighborhood. Great for a burger, a beer or just to stop and lounge with a cup of coffee.

Guest Access

Private bedroom suite with full bathroom, study nook and large closet. While I am out of town, the guests will also have full use of the rest of the apartment including second bathroom. ((Only exclusion is my bedroom.)

Interaction with Guests

I'm careful to respect your privacy and give you your space. I love AirBNB and get a big kick out of meeting people from all over the world.

  • Robert was an excellent host. He got back to me within a few hours when I needed to book last minuet. I live in Fort Lauderdale, but needed a work space outside my place for the weekend. He made me feel so comfortable in his home and I taught him about the Kentucky Derby as we watched it together. I will book Robert again when friends and family come into town.

  • This was a very last minute trip- we were flying standby and didn't know where we'd end up. So I booked with Robert the same day from the airport! Despite this, everything was perfect. The property is ideally located in Ft Lauderdale. If you're renting a car, you can get everywhere you'll want to go (the beach, downtown, shopping) in under 10 min. I love the Riverside Park neighborhood. The houses are nestled under a canopy of old oaks and palm trees. It gives the area secluded tropical vibe. Riverside Market is a great spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It gets super busy at night with locals and out-of-towners alike The loft is really comfortable, impeccably clean, and fully stocked. I'm only sorry I didn't get a chance to meet the hosts, but they were very helpful, friendly and accessible by phone, email, and text message.

  • Just as we expected from the other reviews. Robert was friendly, available when we needed him, and made us feel comfortable even though this was our first airbnb experience. Highly recommended.

  • Robert is a really nice and authentic guy who really wants the best for his guests. He does his best to help them and to share simple moments. We were very affected by the person, a real real british gentleman as we can imagine ;) The appartment is really nice and perfectly clean.

  • Genuine, kind, hard-working, a great listener and conversationalist, passionate about sustainability and helping people – these are the words that come to mind when I think about Robert. Staying in his loft was my first airbnb experience and I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful host. Luckily for me, he accommodated my last-minute reservation. The loft was perfect for me. I especially enjoyed reading on the rooftop area and gazing at the beautiful flowers, trees, and butterflies that surround the apartment complex. I also really liked that the apartment was within running/walking distance to the Riverwalk (it took me about 10 minutes to jog to the beginning of the Riverwalk.) I definitely recommend Robert’s place!

  • We had a great stay at Robert's place while attending a seminar. Robert's place is really comfortable, has a great location and is spotless. It was fabulous having our own space with a private bath and desk area. Robert is such a nice guy too. Really smart, interesting and interested. It was a pleasure staying with him and if we ever return to Ft Lauderdale we will definitely book with him again! Thank you Robert!

  • The loft was great, we really enjoyed our stay there! The bedroom and bathroom were spacious, modern and clean and the neighbourhood was felt very safe, it was nice to walk and jog out there. We warmly recommend the loft! Robert is a great host, he is easy to communicate with and was flexible with our stay.

  • Easy location with lots of greenery and trees, and its in a nicely maintained complex. Very comfortable setup, nice and bright and good cross ventilation for evening breezes. Nicely decorated. The bed is a full size firm mattress, and was a little small for us as we're used to a queen size at home. The outside security lights lit up the bedroom through the blinds, and I was glad I brought my eye mask.
    Robert was great. He wasn't in residence and we communicated through phone calls and texts, but he was very responsive to our needs.

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
