Description of the Fort Lauderdale vacation apartment rental
Apartment #2 is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit. We've maximized the living space by furnishing one of the bedrooms as a large living room with an attached office and full bath. This is an ideal apartment for couples who are staying a little longer and require the extra space, however, it is more than sufficient to sleep up to 4 guests.

A tastefully decorated apartment with quality furniture and a nice floor plan with good flow. Recessed lighting in the fully equipped kitchen and a simple, arched, architectural design gives way to an open dining room with seating up to 6.

Double French doors lead from the dining room into the large living room with a 42' flat panel HDTV, DVD and comfortable seating from Broyhill Furniture. Cable, High Speed Internet and WiFi are included. There is an exceptionally large office nook behind pulled back curtains, with a convenient open bar on one side and entrance to a full bathroom on the other.

Master bedroom features a king-sized set from the Manchester Collection, two large closets with tons of space, an en-suite bathroom and a separate laundry room.

A private 32 foot long Deck outside with tables and seating for four. Beautiful, lush gardens and lots of old growth create a canopy of palms and a wonderful shady place to sit. The huge private deck is like an additional room to the apartment (a great place for breakfast and well lit for night time use).

Includes 2 dedicated off-street parking spaces just steps outside your front door.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Excellent Accomodation

"We had a wonderful time at Fort Lauderdale and this property was first class for our purposes. Centrally located and very well furnished it was ideal for our needs. The owner, Jon, was very attentive, not intrusive, and helped us with all of our enquiries about the neighbourhood. Highly recommended"

Gorgeous garden apartment, fantastic location

"Just spent a week in this lovely garden apartment and could not recommend it more. It is beautiful, in pristine condition, and just in the best location. It feels like home, it is beautifully furnished, tile floors throughout, 2 bathrooms, large, comfortable bedroom with king-size bed and full kitchen. I cooked a few meals here with no problem at all. The tv was huge, the wireless was fast. Everything seemed brand-new and it was spotless. We did not use the patio but it is a lovely place to have coffee and relax in the garden. It was quiet and peaceful, yet really close to Las Olas and the beaches and all of the action, if you are into that.
Victoria Park is probably the nicest neighborhood in Ft. Lauderdale, it is really a beautiful place so take a walk if you can. I ran to the beach every day and that was fantastic.
Jon the owner was awesome as well, very helpful, though we didn't need anything at all, we know Ft. Lauderdale well and were traveling while looking for a permanent place to live, but if you don't know the area I know he would be just great, he was extremely personable and definitely determined to make our stay great, which is was.
If you want somewhere that is immaculate, quiet, very pretty and in a great location, go for it. This is the place for you. Would definitely stay again."

Great spot in the Heart of Ft Lauderdale

"Over the summer I was in the process of remodeling my home and needed a place to stay for a few months, which turned into close to 5 months. When I found Hidden Gardens I knew it was the place for my wife and I. We stayed in the 2 bedroom, the rooms are spacious and with two bathrooms, den, living room, bedroom and kitchen it was more than we could have expected. Over the months we had extremely nice neighbors that we were able to become friends with and Jon the owner is just a great guy! He takes great pride in his building and it shows whether it is the finish of the units or the manicured landscaping as you walk to your unit. If you are visiting Lauderdale for a week or a few months I would take a look at Hidden Gardens before booking elsewhere."

Great Vacation Spot

"I spent March and april in this great apartment and it couldn't have worked out better for me. The apartment had large sized rooms with crown moldings that were tastefully and comfortably decorated. It felt much more like a home than an apartment. The kitchen was more than adequately equipped and having the dining room was a real bonus. The outdoor patio area with the gardens made you feel like you were far away from the city. It was quiet, very clean and the owner, Jon, was always helpful and available if needed. Victoria Park is a great area and near the beach and the Los Olas area that has great shops and restaurants. I found the location was never more than 10 minutes from where I wanted to be. I will definitely plan another trip to this great vacation spot."

Delightful apartment in historic area

"This place is a real gem! We stayed a month in this spacious, beautifully appointed apartment. The extra bath and office alcove was a plus. The location is perfect--in quiet, lovely Victoria Park, an oasis of calm in the city. The property is a short drive to many restaurants, a movie theater, supermarket, etc., as well as to downtown Ft. Lauderdale and its attractions. Las Olas, the Galleria and the beach are also near. The owner lives on site and is most accommodating, besides being an excellent companion for evening drinks on the patio. We hope to stay here again."

We escaped Winter & found Paradise!

"Immediately upon meeting Jon (the owner) and seeing the condo, we were speechless! Not only is Jon a great person who obviously puts a great deal of care into the apartment, but he also does so much to ensure his guests have everything they need to enjoy their stay. Unit #2 looked very nice online, and the price was impossible to pass up, but the space is larger and more beautiful than you'd think, and the amenities might just make you sorry to head back home again. If your travels bring you to Fort Lauderdale, you'll be sorry (and so will your wallet) if you decide to stay somewhere other than Hidden Gardens. Signed, Very happy New Englanders."

Nice apartment and convenient location

"Due to kitchen remodeling I needed a comfortable clean place to stay with complete kitchen and safe area. Hidden Gardens met these requirements and more. It is located very close via car to downtown Fort Lauderdale, great restaurants, stores and beaches. The owner was very helpful with information and additional requests. Oh, I almost forgot and I was able to bring my 2 doggies along for the stay. This apartment is on the first floor so I could go out easily to walk doggies any time of day :)"

Quiet and Comfortable

"This apartment is located in one of the nicest and prettiest areas of Victoria Park, an old Fort Lauderdale neighborhood within walking distance of the renowned Las Olas shopping district. The apartment is quite nice, spacious, clean, and well managed. The listing for this property is accurate in every way, and the pictures are truly representative. My partner and I were very comfortable living there for several weeks. We have a little dog and it was a pleasure to be able to take him on walks in the lovely tree-shaded neighborhood. The owner, Jon, lives on site and is very attentive to maintenance of the property. The garden area is a real delight, and Jon takes a great deal of pride in its upkeep. Jon is quite business-like and is always solicitous of the needs of his tenants. He was a wonderful host and made us feel "at home." The apartment is well and comfortably furnished. It's spacious--with a separate dining room, office area, and laundry room. I highly recommend this facility."

Great Place to Stay

"I just came back from a week's vacation in Fort Lauderdale where I stayed at Hidden Gardens Victoria Park apt #2. The apt is great and close to all that you need. Las Olas Blvd and the Beach are both within minutes drive. The apt has all that you need - it was clean, in good order, and felt like home for the week. Jon was really helpful and always available to answer any questions if needed. If it's available, this will be where I stay the next time I go to Fort Lauderdale - definite repeat!"

Could not be a better place to stay in Fort Lauderdale

"I have a picky wife when it comes to going away from home. She absolutely loved everything about our stay. The apartment was the same or even better than the pictures. Spacious, clean, organized, well kept and had all the amenities anyone could ask for. Jon, the owner, is a great person. He wants to make sure your stay is the best he can make it. Always willing to help. We sent merchandise via FedEx before we left our native country, he was kind to hold it for us until we arrived. Since it is his property, he takes very good care of everything. Nothing is out of place, all the plants are very well taken care of. I just have to thank Jon for the great month we had in South Florida. Since everyone stays at least 10 hours a day in the "home", hotel they rent, it's very important that this experience is worth money and time. Give yourself this treat. I just have to finish by saying, sometimes 5 stars are just not enough."

A Great Stay in Victoria Park

"Thank goodness I chose the Hidden Gardens, it was just what I needed. Its in a quiet neighborhood, off the beaten path but very close to downtown Fort Lauderdale and Las Olas. I live in Fort Lauderdale and can say this spot in Victoria Park is a great location. I recently stayed in apt.2 which has very nice furniture and a bed that makes it tough to get out of. Its so relaxing there and I really liked the patio area which is ideal for breakfast or evenings under the stars. Thanks to the owner Jon, for being accessible and for making all of my arrangements such a breeze. He kept good contact throughout and takes care of the property well. I'm a fan of the Hidden Gardens, and will definitely recommend this place to my relatives when they're in town. Thanks Jon!"

The owner Jon is extremely helpful without being intrusive and obviously takes pride in what he does.

Garden Spot!

"My wife and I have just completed 3 wonderful months at Hidden Gardens. Jon, the owner, was always available if I had any questions (such as what is the Wi-Fi password).. The apartment is very nicely appointed and had all of the necessary equipment to make it possible to eat in comfortably. The mattress was firm and for one with a bad back it was just perfect. The apartment was spotless and the fact that it was cleaned for us every other week was very pleasant. The neighborhood is very attractive and quiet. We took walks most evenings and felt very safe. I am a tennis player and the Jimmy Evert (that is Chris Evert's father) Tennis Center is a 15 minute walk away. You can pick up a game there any morning-just show up at 0745 and ask for Chris. The photos on the site are exactly as the apartment and the patio area are. Publix supermarket is 10 minutes away by car. The restaurants and shops of Las Olas are 10 minutes away as well. We enjoyed our visits so much that we are already discussing when we will return. My daughter from San Francisco visited us at Hidden Gardens and she liked it so much that she has already talked with the owner about a rental for herself. It is just a wonderful place."

Vacation Rental

"The moment that I walked through the gate I knew that I was going to have a wonderful experience staying at Hidden Gardens. I was immediately surrounded by a lovely, lush garden complete with outdoor seating outside my door. The apartment was well appointed with new comfortable furniture and was clean and bright and complete with all necessary amenities. I even had my own washer/dryer. I was also very impressed and thankful to the owner, Jon, for going out of his way to assure that my stay was perfect, which it was. I give it 5 stars and highly recommend."

Perfect for Long-term Business Stay

"We stayed in Hidden Gardens apartment 2 for seven weeks while we searched for a home in Fort Lauderdale. It offers so much more than a suite hotel. During this time, we were working from home so the fact that the apartment had a separate office area with WiFi and high-speed internet made it perfect. Great neigborhood - quiet but in the middle of everything with lots of nearby amenities. The apartment is comfortably sized with high quality furnishings and a fully outfitted kitchen. The beautiful tropical garden with table and chairs was a favorite spot for evening dinner and relaxing. We can't imagine what a long stay at a hotel would have been like - here, it was just like being at home and in fact, we were reluctant to move out once we had a new home. We will strongly recommend Hidden Gardens to friends and family that come to Fort Lauderdale."

Can't go Wrong Here

"Very well appointed apartment in charming, tropical, tranquil Victoria Park. Lovely quiet neighborhood but close to all the fun and nightlife on Las Olas and close to the beach. I enjoyed sitting out on the patio which Jon, the owner, has landscaped beautifully. Everything was as it is reflected to be.Top notch. I would highly recommend to anyone and would not hesitate to stay there again. The owner is very helpful and could not be nicer."
