Welcome to our home and the beautiful city of Fort Lauderdale!
Located just over 1 mile from the beach directly in the center of town, our location is ideal for anyone interested in touring the city, whether you do so by foot, car, or bicycle. I would like to let you know that we will gladly offer you our 2 bicycles for you to use whenever you would like. Fort Lauderdale is a great city for bicycling and we are very centrally located, being only a 5-10 minute bike ride to the beach and a 10-15 minute bike ride to downtown and Las Olas Blvd.
HOUSE: Our house sits in the safe, cozy neighborhood of Lake Ridge in Fort Lauderdale, within walking distance of a 24/7 drug store, grocery store, bank, restaurants, French bakery, movie theater, mall, homemade gelato shop, post office, water taxi stop, and even a Hustler. You will sleep on a queen size bed in your own private room and you will have your own private bathroom. We are usually only home during the day and often gone in the late afternoon until late at night. So, you may never end up seeing much of us. The entire house is super clean and modern and has all updated appliances. We are both laid back and quite well-travelled, as we have visited and hosted many people before. You'll of course get a key and have access to the house at any time. And when we are home, we only ask that you just make yourself at home. We'll be doing our own thing and we encourage you to do whatever makes you happy. We are super easy-going and down-to-earth. We go to bed slightly late, but as long as you are not a light sleeper, you should have no problem sleeping.
AMENITIES: The house has everything you may need, including:
-Two free, new, Schwinn bicycles with locks and lights that you can use to go anywhere in the city, day or night.
-Free soap and shampoo as well as a hairdryer. We will also provide you with freshly cleaned towels, linens, and wash cloths.
-Free coffee or green tea whenever you want
-Brand new, clean kitchen equipped with anything you might need if you decide to cook a meal
-Plenty of parking if you have a car
-Washer and clothes line for drying or $1 at nearby laundry facility
-Cable and wireless internet (AT&T U-verse)
-Under the mango tree on the patio you can use the grill
-Personalized maps and info on everywhere to go in Fort Lauderdale/Miami. I have lived here 20 years and know the city better than anyone.
-Outdoor patio along with a screened-in patio, perfect for enjoying our large, beautiful yard as you may have lunch, read a book, or surf the internet on a laptop as you watch the sunset.
-For those from another country, I have an adapter/converter for your electrical appliances.
-If you are driving and don't want to get lost, I can provide you with a Garmin GPS
-Should you need to check your email or book your next night of accommodation, you can use our computer
-Additionally, for a small fee of $10, if available, I can arrange to pick you up or drop you off at the airport, port, or train station.

Dave and sindy were really good hosts. Their house is very comfortable and clean. The huge kitchen is great for cooking and the BBQ is awesome. The Garden invites to relax in the sun and with their Bikes you get very fast to the beach. We definately recommend Dave & sindy and would stay with them next Time we are in fort lauderdale
David and Sandy's place is a really nice location. Everything was tidy and clean. They even provided towels. Although the stay was short (one night) it was very comfortable. The bikes are a plus in Fort Lauderdale because the city is (other than Miami Beach) very spreat out and the public transportation is poor.
Highly reccommend this place! :-)
This was my second time staying at David and Sindy's place. I stayed in December and knew right away that this would be my go to place in Fort Lauderdale. Their low key and inviting personalities make for pleasant stay. The room is spotless with a TV and plenty of drawer space. The private bathroom is right outside the bedroom door. I will definitely stay at their place again. BEST hosts EVER.
We stayed a bit over a week at Dave's and Sindy's house. The house and room were just as described and clean. Dave is a really helpful and friendly host and knows the best places around Fort Lauderdale and Florida. He also provided us with a GPS which was much needed on our day trips. Highly recommendable!!!!!
Das Grundstück und das Haus sind sehr gepflegt, auch im Gästezimmer und im eigenen Bad fühlt man sich wohl. Da man so gut wie alles mitbenutzen darf, fühlt man sich eher zu Hause als bei Fremden. David und Sindy sind freundlich und zurückhaltend. So wie es auch schon viele beschrieben haben, ist es eine sehr gute Unterkunft, zu der ich auch jederzeit wieder zurückkehren würde.
A really great place to stay, very clean, in a lovely quiet location but close enough to get around.
David gave us an info sheet on the local,area and bars/restaurants/ tourist attractions. This was very useful and accurate. Particularly enjoyed the water taxi, and also Mai Kai Polynesian bar and restaurant.
Many thanks for a relaxing and welcoming stay.
This is our first airbnb booking, and David has set the bar high!
David seems like a chill guy. I did not get much interaction from Sindy, she seemed busy with lunch and a little shy. You will not be disappointed with the actual location and feel of the house, it is kept up nice, yard is very cool, and I was left basically alone to do whatever we wanted to do. The wood floors are a prety loud and crack and pop when are walking around, I felt as if I was waking everyone up in the morning when walking around.
David has some good info on parts of Florida, if you are a first timer he will most likely help you out well, thanks for the stay guys.
Very nice guests and very nice house ! Comfortable, clean and well organized; the advises for restaurants and nice areas were very helpful. We definitely recommend David & Sindy's home
We felt very comfortable on Dave and Sindy house. They were very friendly and welcoming to us. Highly recommend it!!
We stayed for a week at David & Sindy's house, they are very nice and hospitable, made us feel home. David knows the town very well, he gave us a lot of tips where to eat out or where to go. Please use those tips, they are highly useful and helpful. The neighborhood is nice and quite but it is better to rent a car to move around easily. The house is super clean and tidy, the private bathroom is precious! Guys really work a lot so you won't see much of them but there is so much to do and go around in Florida so don't stay in too much)) surely recommend everyone to stay with David & Sindy.
