Your house is one of the nicest rentals my family and I have experienced. We have already recommended your place to our friends. Your photos of the place look nice but they don't do justice to how nice everything really is. We agree with the others who have left comments. Thanks for adding to our visit to Fl.

There were 6 of us who stayed in the house and we had a great time here. It is very nicely decorated and accomadating. It had everything we could possible need. The beds are very comfortable. The pool and deck out back were awesome. Good location. Upon returning to Ft. Lauderdale, I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Florida House
Nice house inside & out. The online photos are very accurate. The house was clean and well taken care of. The location was central to everything. Quick drive to Fort Lauderdale beach, and only 1 1/2 hrs to Key Largo for a day trip. The owner was easy to work with and quickly responded to any questions. Would definately stay there again.

My husband and I travel often. We expect to get our $$'s worth and do not settle for "okay." We loved this place!The pictures do not do this home justice. The house was very comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. It even had toys for my daughter, pool floats, and other things we did not expect. My daughter has sensitive skin and usually gets a rash after being in a pool, but this pool was very clean. There is a TV in the livingroom, outside, and in the bedroom. The backyard is private, surrounded by trees and shrubs. We only had to buy our food. The beach was very close and everything you needed, from restaurants to grocery stores, were right around the corner. Miami was no more than a 30 min drive. I have no complaints. Ww would never stay in a hotel after having stayed here. I can't stress enough how beautiful this home is. Also, the shower was so amazing and relaxing. We will stay here again on our next visit to FL.

Beautiful, relaxing home
The house is absolutely gorgeous; the pictures don't do it justice. Great location minutes from I95 and all the Ft. Lauderdale attractions. Other than a few dogs sporadically barking across the canal, the neighborhood was wonderfully quiet. So quiet that it made me realize just how much car traffic I have in my own neighborhood! In a week, I don't think I saw more than a handful of cars pass by. As a foodie, I love to cook and appreciated that everything I needed to steam lobsters one night and make a homemade sauce for pasta the next was provided for in the kitchen. Darrin, the owner was nice enough to locate the nearest boat ramps for me. While I decided not to bring my waverunner, I didn't miss it. Just relaxing around the beautiful pool and lounging in the jacuzzi were enough. Finally, the master bed is absolutely the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. And I'm saying this is a very fussy sleeper; I never vacation without bringing my own down pillow and have even thrown my own high-thread count sheets on a few occasions. The sheets were even softer than my own at home and I literally didn't want to get out of bed every morning. Best sleep I've had in years! I highly recommend this home. Perfect for a romantic getaway for a couple or as a home base for a family with kids.
Fantastic - Beautiful Canal front home.
The home is what the pictures depict but much more. Impressive layout and very well kept canal front home. Ease of access to beaches, airport and local anything. Pool and hot tub are fantastic with water views. It had everything and anything you could need- front porch with fantastic views, rear corner patio with table and chairs , rear covered porch with outdoor furniture to watch a South Florida rain shower pass on by. The interior of the home was just as impressive with beautiful tile floors throughout and all the comforts of home. The owner was a pleasure to deal with throughout. Thanks for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home and we definitely look forward to staying another time in the near future!

Loved staying here with my family this past week.. i had family coming down from out of state and they absolutly loved this house.. The host Darin is awesome as well, he was very informative and helpful and accomodated me when i had a question of any sort. We pretty much felt at home and the pictures dont do this place justice. If you have a family and kids this house is definitly for you because it pretty much has everything.. the days it rained we spent time at the house swimming and even though it was hot we still managed to sit in the jaccuzi i guess my family does not care lol all in all i really enjoyed my stay here and so did my family and we are looking forward to always booking with darin in the newr future .. thanks again for hosting us
Exellent property. Nice to see some kitchen items were left, coffee filters etc
We had an amazing time. The property is very clean, the beds are amazing! We all slept like babies! The villa is spaceous, has everything you need. The pool is fantastic, the decking area was a pleasure on late evening and special on early morning sunrise.
Be prepared to share the decking with the local wildlife! Lots of small lizards and some very large iguanas! There are a couple of notable ones, one we called stumpy on account of only having half a tail, the other was godzilla! It was huge, yet they were both regular visitors and by the third or fourth day they were used to us being there and put up with our noise!
The other visitor was a racoon! Bit of a cheecky character too.
We had a fab time. Easy to get anywhere from the location too.
Thank you for letting us stay.
Bob and family.

Awesome Property with Awesome Views
We rented prior to the hurricane hitting Fl. Needless to say we were a bit concerned about our stay. Having contacted Darin he assured me the house was fine, structural sound and, aside from losing a few trees, we had nothing to worry about. We didn't! The pictures are exactly what you'll be renting. The waterway was amazing and the pool was awesome. Close to everything. Darin was just a text or call away! Even as adults we enjoyed the friendly Iguanas that came around. We definitely had a great 10 days. Thanks Darin for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.

Very Comfortable and Well-Maintained House
We stayed in this house from Feb 25 until April 4, 2018. The house was very well-decorated, not like a vacation house but almost like someone's personal residence. The rooms were large, and provided lots of seating space. The kitchen appliances were in excellent condition (many seemed quite new) and operated perfectly. The master bathroom was huge, and the walk-in shower was exceptional. The bed was very comfortable, with what felt like a memory foam mattress topper. The TVs worked very well, though there was not a DVD player. The wifi worked perfectly.
The setting on the canal was beautiful, and very tranquil and quiet. The iguanas were a daily entertainment treat, as a large duck which landed one day on the dock. The outdoor grill was immaculately clean and functioned beautifully. There were many seating areas outside, for sunning, reading, and dining. The heated swimming pool was very warm; the owner came on cold nights to cover the pool to keep the temperature in range. This was truly a wonderful oasis within the bustling town of Fort Lauderdale, in a convenient location near I-95. The airport was just 20 minutes away.
The owner, Darin Tubbs, was very friendly and helpful, and extremely responsive to questions or needs as they arose. I would certainly recommend this house to other renters.
