Tennis rackets and balls are also provided and there are FREE Tennis Courts in the neighborhood park a block or two away.
I do not own a basketball, but if you play and would like to use the FREE courts in the local park, let me know ahead of time and I will add a Basketball to the list of offerings and go buy one!
My neighbor has a fishing boat and Deep Sea Ocean fishing trips can be arranged for an additional fee (from a half day fishing trip to a 3 day Bimini trip depending on availability).
Generally I try to meet guests upon arrival but failing that, Amelia helps me and will meet you or if we are both unavailable we make arrangements for the key to be left in the lockbox for you. Details are provided once a booking has been placed and we carefully coordinate prior to your arrival.
Your private room has its own bathroom. (It is the Master Bedroom suite in my 2 bedroom 2 bathroom loft apartment).
You are free to come and go at any time of day or night and will be provided with a key for the duration of your stay. Our goal is that the place meets your needs and that you have a fantastic experience.
The apartment is shared with myself although most likely you will get to enjoy it more than I do as I am a bit of a workaholic!
Do you have an Electric Car?
FREE use of 240V 40A J1772 Electric Vehicle charging station. This is shared use so we just have to coordinate that we both get to charge our cars! Generally my charging is done over night and I go to the office at 5.30am. So I can unplug my car and plug yours in as soon as I leave for work if it needs a top up.
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.
Enjoy the quintessential Fort Lauderdale experience in the city's coolest yet family friendly neighborhood - Riverside Park.
Bordering the west bank of The New River, this neighborhood has a very liveable, Lush, Tropical atmosphere.

Just a block from the New River and a 2 minute drive to downtown, this is the perfect location for your Fort Lauderdale stay.

Each apartment has designated parking spaces so it is also really important that you park in the correct space. (4-C)

#4 please help me preserve my vintage vinyl floors! No shoes or luggage on the floor - even if it has wheels

Check in after 5PM & check out before 10AM (We are completely flexible on this)
Strictly No Pets Sorry. (Possible exception for a goldfish). Maximum occupancy of apartment is 2 guests. All illegal activities and all commercial activities strictly prohibited.
This is a quiet, low key property so we like to try and keep things quiet out of respect for the neighbors.

We try to be Eco-friendly. Please recycle, turn off the lights when not in the room and turn up the AC when leaving the apartment.

Robert's home is a perfect little enclave that feels tucked away, yet you're just 10 minutes from tons of eateries and happenings in Fort Lauderdale. He's a good guy too. If you want an experience where you're left alone, but open to connect when and if you feel like it, Robert and his home are perfect.
We had a fantastic time in Ft. Lauderdale and we really enjoyed staying in the Eco Loft. Robert was kind and very welcoming when we arrived. He was a joy to talk to and even suggested some places to eat and watch the Stanley Cup Finals.
The place is very clean and well kept. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious and offered plenty of closet space. There is even a large balcony that can only be accessed from the guest room.
The neighborhood was lovely, even though we were close to downtown it was quiet and felt very safe and laid back. There are also some awesome bar/restaurants nearby such as The Riverside Market and Tap 42 which was an awesome place to go and watch the game. Driving to the beach from there was also only a short drive.
Overall we loved staying here and will definitely hit Robert up next time we are in town.

Robert and Amelia were great! Nice location and great loft! We definitely felt at home while staying here.
Hat alles super geklappt. Wir hatten einen tollen Start in unsere Floridarundreise. Das Zimmer war gemütlich und sauber und wir haben uns sehr wohl bei Robert gefühlt.
Robert fue un magnifico anfitrión. Estuvimos solo dos noches y nos sentimos muy cómodos. La habitación, con el baño en suite, es muy linda y amplia, incluso para una estadía más larga a la que nosotros realizamos.
Aunque no pudimos compartir mucho tiempo con Robert, nos encanto su amabilidad y predisposición a ayudarnos con cualquier problema. Estamos encantados, y volveríamos a hospedarnos en su casa.
Robert and his assistant Amelia were extremely accommodating. I had last minute plans to stay at his residence and he was able to be flexible, communicative and welcoming. I genuinely enjoyed this experience and will definitely be staying here again next time I'm in the Ft. Lauderdale area!

About the Host, Robert
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. Amelia helps me so we work as a team.
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!
