Waterfront with Yacht
|Per night:||$325 - $550|
|Per week:||$2,195 - $3,496|
As it has been said: “A picture is worth a thousand words” so what follows is a brief description of the house and property in the form of a quick read so you can spend more time on the pics and contacting us! The theme of what we did here is LIFESTYLE…..get away …..relax…. & have a little FUN! We live in Southern California – but come here to really kick-back and enjoy a tropical lifestyle, beautiful ocean, and nearby islands in a truly great climate.
Living room – high ceiling, very open and perfect for entertaining or lounging around and watching the latest DVDs or satellite TV. Large bar for entertaining yourself and your guests. Dining room and kitchen speak for themselves – just look at the pictures and check out the wine cooler, large refrigerator, stove, micro, high ceilings and huge windows and French doors overlooking the pool, new 80’ dock, boat and - across the WIDE CHANNEL – the boat dealer’s stunning selection of multi-million dollar yachts (no houses or neighbors in sight!)
Interesting authentic movie memorabilia helps decorate the house and give guests something to enjoy and talk about (if interested) and the office has computer, wireless high speed internet, etc. if you feel the urge to stay in touch.
4 bedrooms accommodate 8: Master – King size with bath, large sitting room & French doors leading to pool and beyond. Executive guest with Queen bed, sitting area, large closet, and French doors leading to the pool. Twin beds in #3 and bunk beds for the kids in #4. The large living room sofa also makes into a bed if needed. Bathroom #2 has a convenient outside door…….leading to the pool, which is 7’ deep with spa and water feature.
After you go out of any of the above mentioned doors you find yourself in paradise – day or night. Pool, spa, ample deck and dining furniture, large grill, and authentic Tiki bar (just like in the islands) for enjoying those tropical drinks are yours in a setting most people fly to those islands to experience. Great fun – you won’t even need to close your eyes and use your imagination to feel the warm ocean breeze and hear it rustle through palm trees……….just look around and take it all in – over & over.
Walk over to the new 8’ wide dock and relax – check out the 58’ Express Yacht that is ready for charter day cruise on the Intracoastal or beyond, or some of the water toys that can be available upon request (additional arrangements for this stuff can be made in advance, depending upon availability.)
Recently we completely remodeled/upgraded the house – keeping a little of the 60’s “retro” feel just for fun. Nearly all of the furniture, amenities, utensils etc. etc. are new so no “funky stuff” can be found.
This is our personal “getaway” so we enjoy having our children & grandkids come to play here and will delight in sharing it with you if you’re really ready to go for it! Now check out those pictures again………….
The Air Park is located in the heart of the Gold Coast serves and not only serves the general aviation needs of the Fort Lauderdale area but it’s onsite amenities also include a municipal golf course (36 holes), driving range, the outstanding Galuppi's' on the Green restaurant, swimming pool, municipal baseball stadium, tennis facility, bike path. fitness trail, a truly beautiful Community Park, and the Pompano Beach Amphitheater.
As you would expect, there is incredible shopping from ultra upscale Las Olas Blvd. to quaint beachfront shops as well as all major retailers and shopping centers. First class dining is available at an incredible selection of over 3,500 restaurants ranging from 5 Star rated to trendy waterfront cafés and party time sports bars.
You might elect to enjoy a leisurely Water Taxi cruise along Fort Lauderdale’s world famous waterways which have earned the city the nickname “The Venice of America.” Hit the beach, shop and dine on spectacular Las Olas Blvd, and visit the cruise ships at Port Everglades. The Water Taxi's crew will happily help you plan your day as you travel past many interesting sites from mansions to mega yachts. Your ticket allows unlimited boarding from any of the 13 stops throughout Fort Lauderdale! Private charters are available or take the shuttle to South Beach and experience the art deco charm of Ocean Drive’s boardwalk cafes, the upscale boutiques of the Lincoln Road Mall, and soak up the sun while people watching on one of the world’s best beaches.
Many choose to check out the Jungle Queen, a huge paddle wheel riverboat for a ride up New River through the center of Ft. Lauderdale to their private tropical isle. The captain’s commentary is both informative & humorous as you cruise past interesting sights and beautiful homes. Take in the hilarious variety show, dinner and then relax & enjoy the beautiful moonlit cruise back.
Naturally, you can snorkel, scuba drive, or experience the delight of exploring the vast coral reel only a few hundred years off the beach. Within minutes, there is deep sea fishing, golf, horseracing, Jai alai, and casinos. While the famous Las Olas Blvd, is only a short drive away, fashionable Boca Raton is only 20 minutes to the North, also offering 1st class restaurants & nightlife for entertainment.
Finally, as nearly the whole world is aware of, head south where there is an over abundance of world class nightlife and entertainment from dusk ‘til dawn…… Pompano Beach is close to Deco Drive, South Beach, Miami and nearly every nocturnal amenity you can imagine and associate with the Florida Gold Coast.
And don’t forget……a comfortable bed and quiet privacy will await your return home!

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Pompano Beach, Florida
Really good place!
November 16, 2014
We stayed in Judy and Ricks beautiful house for five nights in beginning of November. In total we were 4 adults and three kids (range 11 months to 8 years). We really enjoyed the house and the view from the kitchen is really luxurious. The house has a private and very nice backyard with a really nice pool which is great for everyone, adult or kid, since one side is deep enough for diving and the other more suitable for kids. The hot tub works for all ages. Besides the pool area the backyard consists of a pier, sun beds, a nice place for outdoor dining, a huge grill and cosy surf inspired tiki hut bar all with the view of boats passing by in the canal. The house it selves is also really nice and clean. It contains what ever you need! Many rental houses has limited kitchen equipment but in this house you find everything you need. Even personal hand painted porcelain that is available for use. The area felt really calm with low traffic on the street in front of the house. Then as a wonderful bonus we ended our stay by meeting the very nice and kind owners Judy and Rick and went for a trip with their lovely yacht. This gave a closer and more genuine view of Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale area from the water. This view is very different from the view you get from driving around in a car. Our daughters just loved this day, even though they spent an hour or two down in the boat watching Sponge Bob square pants ;-) We would love hiring Judy and Ricks house again next time we leave Sweden for USA!

Our family, three adults and three kids (19, 14 and 8) stayed in Rick and Judys house for a week. It was a really nice experience. The house is perfectly located and is such a pleasure to live in. It has all the necessary equipment for you to enjoy a nice vacation. Rick and Judy was there to assist if we needed something and they made us feel at home. Rick and Judy also do tours with their yacht and they picked us up at the Restaurant 15th Street Fisherie situated right at the Intercostal waterway and took us home to the house in Pompano Beach on our weddingday. It was GREAT! and also an opportunity to see Fort Lauderdale and all the houses, yachts etc from the waterside.
Perfect Vacation Property
October 15, 2014
Upon arrival we met Rick the owner of the property there at the house. We knew right away we were in for a nice vacation. Rick was very pleasant and informative when showing us the house and accomodating to all of our needs if there were any, which by the way, were not! The house is better than described with all the amenities you need for a nice south Florida vacation! We felt like we were at our second home in Florida! We had full use of the house our entire stay and was priviledged to be able to use Rick and Judys personal items such as beach chairs and coolers anytime we needed to. The view and weather were spectacular, the pool was nice for the kids to be able to use. The outdoor kitchen and tiki bar were a nightly attraction for the adults as we cooked and prepared the fish we caught for dinner almost every night. Pompano beach is a very short drive with easy parking and nice amenities. The beach feels secure and has all the modern upgrades you would expect from a south Florida beach front. Very short drive to all major eating venues and some alternate restaurants that are more of a local flare as well. Overall, the experience wa s above our expectations and would highly recomend this property to anyone looking for a first class south Florida destination! Rick and Judy are more than willing to help with any thing you need and are a true pleasure to deal with!!
A true jewel
August 31, 2014
Everything about this home made for a great vacation. The layout, the comfort, the location, and the attention given by the owner. My family would not hesitate to return for another round of great vacation. Due to this experience it would be extremely diffult to convince us to go any other route than a vacation home.

Very clean. Comfortable beds. Best kitchen window view I've ever seen. Weather perfect. Homeowners/captains were perfect hosts and so friendly we felt like we've known them for years. Boat ride was relaxing and super fun. They were very accommodating throughout the whole trip.

This beautiful home is exactly how it is shown and described on the website. Gorgeous inside and out and yet so comfortable in every way. The gourmet kitchen overlooks the waterway which we spent many days just watching the boats sail up and down. The yard is quiet as neighbours don't appear to either be there, or have any noisy kids or pets. The location was amongst other beautiful homes - great walks each morning discovered more and more lovely homes to look at. The home is however located close to all great restaurants, shops, beach, malls etc. and only ten minutes drive either way to Ft Lauderdale or Boca Raton. The hosts Rick and Judy are fantastic people - friendly, welcoming and available if you need anything. Don't hesitate to book this home - it is truly fabulous !

We had a wonderful vacation, and this home was absolutely beautiful! The house is very clean and well kept, large and spacious with all the amenities you need! We cooked all our meals at the house, and it was great to have everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the pool and hot tub that overlooks the canal. The communication with the owners was excellent! Rick and Judy answered all our questions and responded right away. I also liked the location of the home. It is just one block from Rt. 1, the main road that takes you to the beaches, shopping and dining. There were fishing poles provided at the house and we caught several fish right in the backyard off the dock. If you decide to venture out and fish, as we did, I recommend the fishing boat Hooked Up with Captain Taco! We caught mahi-mahi, tuna, and king fish. The captain and his son were wonderful and we had an awesome time!! Thank you to Judy and Rick for renting your beautiful home to us...we had a wonderful, relaxing vacation!
August 9, 2013
First off the homeowners Judy and Rick were amazing!! Let me not forget my adopted son Lee( their grandson) our children really enjoyed the coconuts!!! My family and I truly enjoyed their home although we were in Florida for a family reunion it was a struggle leaving the house. If you are looking for the perfect vacation home look no further!!
July 31, 2013
I must say that was the best week EVER! The house was just a perfect post graduation get away. It was a great place to relax and just spend time with my friends. Im so thankful that they let us stay there. We had a perfect location 5 minutes away from Pompano and really close to the other beaches. It was a amazing experience and I would definitely recommend this home to anyone. You would not regret it !! Thank you :)
Beast ass house!!!
July 30, 2013
IF I COULD GIVE IT 10 STARS I WOULD BECAUSE IT WAS DOUBLE OF WHAT YOU WOULD THINK. Not only were we having fun in Florida, but we did not want to leave the house. The house was so nice and there was enough space for all of us. Rick and Judy deserve a medal for trusting a group of high school graduates with there house. We made sure we had the money when they wanted it and they gave us the key. Me and my friends are already talking about going back next year to visit the awesome house again.

BEST VACATION EVER
April 27, 2013
My husband,son and his girlfriend rented this home for a second time, we loved it so much that we had to come back. Judy and Rick, the owners are such lovely people and easy going. The house is beautiful and well cared for, we loved sitting out by the pool with our coffee in the morning and at the Tiki Bar at night was amazing. The house is close to shopping,restaurants,beach,movies... everything you could want. We would definitely recommend this vacation home for your next holiday.

A little piece of heaven!
April 2, 2013
We were 2 families with older children that rented this home for Spring Break. There was lots of room for everyone to be comfortable and feel right at home. The house was very clean and had a beautiful and well stocked kitchen. By far the best part of the house was being on the intercoastal. The backyard was an entertainers dream with a tiki bar, outdoor dining area and lots of lounge chairs to watch the kids in the pool or the boats passing by. We spent time everyone morning and evening with a coffee or a glass of wine enjoying our time outside. We even caught a few fish right off the dock! We will definitely be back!
January 13, 2013
Great stay & convenient for our family's needs. The ammenities were just perfect and owner responsive in rental procedures.
January 12, 2013
It was an amazing holiday. I don’t know where I should begin ... We were a group of five persons and the house was perfect for us. The house is even much better than we could imagine. Everything was awesome. It was very clean and all was available what you need for a perfect vacation. We loved the garden area but particularly the pool with the great view. But also Rick and Judy, the owners, made our trip unforgettable. The yacht trip was amazing, as well as the barbeque. We felt us very welcome and cant wait to come back. Thanks for all and nice greetings from Berlin
November 29, 2012
Where do i start?? after finding the place online and sending an e-mail it only got easier. The landlords were very easy to communicate with. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The only down side was that we didn't get a chance to meet Judy but we were able to meet Rick who was very helpful and friendly. I am definitely going back again.
October 16, 2012
First of all, I want to thank the owners for the use of their beautiful house. The house has it all and more! It is confortable, clean, spacious and very well situated, close to markets, shopping, restaurants and everything else you can imagine. Even south beach Miami is a short trip - 35 minutes... The pool area is a plus, with a barbecue and a very pleasent deck is where you are going to want to be, the pool itself is also a good surprise, it is deep enough to dive. If it isn't enough you will have a chance to rent the boat of the owners and, on that case, to meet then: Rick and Judy - for us, maybe the best part of the trip. Hope we will keep in touch for life. Thank you Judy, thank you Rick, hope to see you soon in Brazil!

Exceeded our expectations
July 12, 2012
My family and I went to Florida for my son’s wedding and in looking for a place to stay, stumbled across this wonderful home. It exceeded our expectations on multiple ways. The pool was beautiful, overlooking the inner coastal, the tiki bar was a popular spot for my young-adult children to enjoy each other’s company and everyone commented on how nice it was to watch the boats come in an out on the inner coastal. Of course my teenager loved the Wifi and that kept him out of the other children’s hair for the most part. My granddaughter even told me that I was her favorite grandpa (If that is not success, I don’t know what is!). The owners of the home went out of their way to make sure that we felt at home, they were very easy to contact when we had questions and simple instructions were given for anything that might have raised a question. The inside of the home was beautiful! 4 bedrooms provided us with plenty of room for the family to have separate environments, but the shared spaces (living room and kitchen) were large enough that everyone could join under one roof. My children are already asking when we can return. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for a home away from home.

Dream Vacation Home
June 21, 2012
My friends and I rented this house for our stay in Ft. Lauderdale. The property is located in Pampano Beach which is just a little north of Ft. Lauderdale. It was the perfect location!! The house is just a short drive from the city, which makes for a perfect vacation since it is more calm in the Pampano area. The house is beautiful! It really felt like a home away from home for my guests and I. It was clean, and comfortable and had just about anything you would need, utility wise. Judy and Rick were very pleasant to talk to, and to rent from. They went out of their way to make sure our questions were answered and that our stay was comfortable. I would reccommend this house to absolutely anyone! This was the first time I chose to rent a house versus staying in a hotel, so I was a little apprehensive at first, but I am so glad I Chose this beautiful comfy home to rent, no hotel could compare! My only regret is that we did not stay longer!
June 18, 2012
We loved our stay so much that we booked our stay for next year while still there. Judy and Rick were very easy to work and were very attentive when needed. The house is ideally located to restaurants, beach and golf so it was perfect. It's also a great neighborhood to walk our dog and ride the bikes provided. Thanks so much for sharing your house
Fabulous in Florida!
June 13, 2012
We had the wonderful opportunity to stay at this beautiful home in Pompano Beach, FL for 7 days. Our hosts, Judy and Rick, were so terrific! The house is beautiful, the view is beautiful, all the amenities were perfect! Location was great too! We hope to stay here again in the future. We also spent a day on their incredible yacht enjoying the views of Pompano Beach and snorkeling. What an experience for our whole family! Thank you Rick and Judy for such a wonderful time!
April 9, 2012
Wonderful home, very clean, great backyard and pool. We took a boat trip with Rick and Judy. Wonderful hosts. Will stay again. The views of the boats on the intercostal are sweet.

My family,6 adults and an infant, rented this wonderful home just a few weeks ago. As we are now slogging through the snow .......we just want to go back! Even before deciding to rent all our questions and concerns were answered promptly by Judy. She was very welcoming and informative. When we walked into the house it was many times better than described the pictures. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood , close to the beach, shopping , local attractions and restaurants. We were greeted by Rick , who gave us a thorough tour of the home and again answered any questions we had. He gave us contact numbers and told us if there were any problems(which there wasn't) we could reach him . The vacation home is spacious. There are lots of rooms, both inside and out to either socialize or quietly chill out in.The pool area with the hot tub, dock, Tiki bar. and barbeque was the favorite hung out spot. My family spent a great deal of time here as they didn't want to leave. The kitchen is amazing ,with its beautiful views of the pool area and canal. It was a pleasure to spend time cooking in this up to date well stocked kitchen. We only ate out twice as we enjoyed buying and cooking the local seafood. The beds were comfy and the house was sparkling clean. We took advantage of renting the fabulous yacht for the day. Rick and Judy were great hosts. They were very engaging and informative. My family had a great time cruising the Intercoastal and seeing the sights and sounds of the Fort Lauderdale waterfront. I would highly recommend this vacation home(and the yacht trip). Like I said before ...can't wait to go back! It is perfect of a family or for couples(rooms are quiet and private). You won't be disappointed.Thank you, Rick and Judy for you hospitality.

The pics on the website don't do Ric and Judy's home justice. It's a pretty awesome place! We very comfortably had six adults and three children between the ages of 2 - 5 live together for almost a full week and the house never seemed crowded, We've rented a number of homes in South Florida over the last several years, always looking for a different rental the following year because we hadn't found a place that totally suited our family. Our search is over.........schedule permitting, we'll be back to Ric and Judy's home next Fall.
A Little Bit of Heaven in Pompano Beach
November 11, 2011
We couldn't have found a more perfect place to bring our family together. Ranging in age from 10 months to 85 years old, the nine of us were very comfortable in this tastefully decorated home. The owners went the extra mile to provide for our every need, including a fully functional modern kitchen, washer and dryer, and a computer with internet access. The backyard was just as impressive with the pool, hot tub, barbecue, and tiki hut. The guys were up early in the morning fishing in the backyard and the hot tub was popular well into the night. There was never a dull moment and of course, the vacation ended way too soon. This place is better than the pictures and is our first choice when visiting Pompano Beach!
October 16, 2011
This house was excactly as described. Everything was in good shape, the pool was brilliant, and everything of necessities had been taken care of by the hosts. Perfect for relaxation in Florida.
Best Holiday ever
September 25, 2011
we wanted a relaxing family holiday, away from our busy everyday lives, and this is exactly what we got. Rick and Judy could not have done more for us to make our holiday any more enjoyable. We felt that both Rick and Judy were friends, and not just the people we rented the house from. They really are the nicest couple. There has been other comments about the pictures on the internet and that they do not do justice to the house, and I can honestly say I completely agree. The house is spacious, clean, well maintained and everything that you could possible need for the duration of your stay. We stayed for two weeks and did not encouter any problems at all. We have a teenage daugher who loved the pool, and loved the beach which is in close proximity to the house. There is everything that you could possible need within a very short distance to the house. I can not reccommend this house or the owners highly enough. we would not hesitate to go back again. Thank you Rick and Judy for all that you did for my husband, daughter and myself, it was, and is very much appreciated. Yasmin, England

Home away from home. Better than you can imagine.
August 29, 2011
Delayed arrival late at night from Canada. Our tired family was excited and re-energized as soon as we walked in the front door of Judy and Rick's beautiful home. The million dollar inter-coastal view, dock, tiki bar, hot tub and pool are better than you can imagine. The house is crisp and clean and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a tropical oasis. Our hosts, Judy and Rick, made our stay most memorable. The house is a mile away from the ocean and easy access to shopping and restaurants. The neighborhood is extremely quiet. You will love it.

Fun in the sun
July 24, 2011
We enjoyed meeting Rick and Judy, what a wonderful couple. The house was amazing! Loved the kitchen. When working in the kitchen you look out to the water. We brought our boat (tiny compared to all that is around there) and went snorkling and fishing every day. My kids, niece and nephew had a wonderful time. We can't wait to come back. Thanks again Rick and Judy
July 19, 2011
5-star accommodation and service. By far the best holidaying experience we have enjoyed in Florida; the villa and location were fantastic. Can't thank Rick & Judy enough for their help, guidance and company. Fantastic people who we look forward to meeting again soon. We will always remember the boat charter and the day spent at the Sand Bar. Would highly recommend this property to everyone

Vacation that you will not forget
July 18, 2011
Wow.. what a great vacation home and even more important what great owners. I had a family coming from Europe and we wanted to spend some fun time before my upcoming wedding. Well I truly believe I could not do better choosing this house. The house is very spacious, definitely gives you the vacation feeling. Pool was great, yacht trip was amazing. Judy and Rick were very accommodating, making everybody feel like at home. We had different age groups in our group and everybody had so much fun. Thank you Judy and Rick, we really appreciated your hospitality. Greetings from Denver!
July 6, 2011
We stayed a week in this property and it was a great experience. The house is much better than the pictures, they do not do it justice. It is equipped with everything you might need and the beds are super comfortable. It is very clean. We were a family of 10 and we all fit perfectly and comfortably. Location was great, a lot of nice beaches close by. I would certainly come back. 100% recommendable.

Best Time Ever
April 25, 2011
Judy & Rick, Thank you very much for your hospitality. Me and my family had a lot of fun in your home. I mean what is not to like? You wake up in the morning and your bedroom door leads to the outdoor pool, then you make a breakfast and through the kitchen window there is a view at the bay and exclusive yachts... Grill and outdoor bar next to the pool... Mojito all day long... My family literaly forced me to live the house for some outdoor activities because if that was up to me I would have stay by the pool for entire vacation. And the Grande Finale: 40 feet yacht cruise. I gotta tell you that was something! Thank you folks. Everything was great! It is not a question whether I come back over there. The question is WHEN?!?! Regards, Voytech
April 21, 2011
We rented Judy and Rick's house in March and it was above and beyond our expectations we had three kids ranging from 3 months to 5 years and the house was perfect. They had thought of absolutely everything and even got a new crib for us to use. The house is beautiful inside and it was comfortable and felt like home which having rented a lot of houses is often not the case. We are looking forward to going back next year and my children still talk about it everyday and the wonderful hosts. The house is very near lots of shops and restaurants with small kids we did not get to the restaurants but did stock up with great food from Whole Foods which is 8 minutes away and had a BBQ every night. Perfection!
Perfect Vacation Home for Relaxation and Reunion
April 21, 2011
Our extended family of 4 generations spent a wonderful week in this perfect vacation home. From the moment we walked through the front door, normal life was gone and fun had begun. The design of the property provided places for all of us to gather in one large group and for smaller groups to get together for special activities. Some of us could be in the tiki hut while others were in the hot tub or the pool or around the outdoor table or indoor bar, dining table, or kitchen. The younger children loved the pool and the hot tub while the oldest generation enjoyed watching their great grandchildren having such a wonderful time. Although we rarely left the property, we did appreciate the near-by shopping and short drive to the beach. The owners were very generous in sharing their 'toys' with us and making us feel that their home was actually our home. Paddling their double kayak allowed us to get on the water whenever we chose. Pool toys for the little ones provided hours of entertainment. New bikes were available for a little extra exercise. Even beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler were provided. And the well-equipped gourmet kitchen was a pleasure to use, with its six-burner gas stove, lots of storage, plenty of pots, pans, implements, wine-cooler, and blender. We even had the use of a computer and wi-fi. The elegant decor set the vacation mood inside the house. The friendly owners went out of their way to ensure that we had a wonderful experience. We plan to return next year

My family and I stayed for a week at this house and it was perfect. The kids loved the pool and we love the hot tub. Has fantastic water view and the owners are very welcoming and responsive to all your needs/requests (although, we didn't have any b/c the house was in perfect shape!). Thanks, Rick and Judy - for everything. We had a fabulous vacation. I would not hesitate recommending this house to anyone.
You will have an amazing time!

We were a group of five persons (one couple and three friends) all in the late twenties and stayed at this place for two weeks in February. The time in Pompano Beach at Judy and Rick's vacation house was absolutely fantastic in every respect. This place is just beautiful and well equipped. All your needs will be perfectly fulfilled. We were not expecting for instance to have a fix installed computer station and W-Lan access in the entire house. We loved particularly having our own heated Hot Tub and huge outdoor grill where we enjoyed many delicious BBQ's. The property is very well located too in a nice quiet neighbourhood near the beach, with shopping opportunities only minutes away. All things considered, the description and pictures don't do justice to this place. It will absolutely exceed your expectations by far. The best thing about this rental home is that Judy and Rick, the owners, are just wonderful people. They will do everything they can to make your stay most enjoyable, are very helpful and reactive. We had the pleasure to get to know them better during two trips we did together with them. We can only recommend to take the opportunity and book a trip with their yacht. The snorkeling we did was an amazing experience we will never forget. Also the trip with the Jetski was so much fun. We would love to return for another stay as soon as we can. Thanks for everything to Judy and Rick.

Good times had

First things first- Rick and Judy rock! Very gracious and hospitable people who have an affinity for having a good time which you can feel in their home. Locations is pretty quiet and low-key, with the exception of the occasional boat passing by or prop plane overhead. Also a stones throw to US1 to get you here and there. Nice neighborhood loop to walk but have to drive car or boat to get to beach, restaurants, shops, etc. House is very well maintained with many amenities all in excellent working condition. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again real soon. Happy Trails
looking forward to coming again

Judy and Rick, I don't know where to start. So I'll just start by saying you guys are doing something right. We had such an incredible vacation in your home. The place was beautiful spotless, and just right for what we needed. We enjoyed the pool and spa and watching the boats pass by. The house has everything one might need for a pefect vacation. I must say that from our first phone conversation I knew you were special just from the way you spoke and do business. We really appreciate everything you did for us and enjoyed meeting you both. We are looking forward to coming back again.

My family came down here for a week to get away from the cold, snowy weather of Pittsburgh the week of New Years. We had the most relaxing time in this gorgeous well equipped home. Even though the beach was minutes away, we found ourselves relaxing at the pool; soaking in the hot tub, cooking on the grill and watching the boats sail in this tranquil setting. The house was beautiful as you can clearly see from the pictures. It was very clean and well maintained and the owners were so friendly and nice. They really wanted us to enjoy ourselves. We had such a wonderful time in our own personal resort and hope to return next year.
Beautiful House; Great Location
December 29, 2010
My wife and I rented this house with another couple the week before Christmas and had a fantastic time. The house easily accommodated 10 people (4 adults, and 6 children). It was immaculate, and exactly as advertised. The house is a very nice neighborhood. The kids loved the heated pool (and spent most of their time there), jumped in/out of the jacuzzi (which feeds into the pool), and insisted on eating their meals in the Tiki Hut. We loved the huge kitchen, and its enormous windows that overlook into the backyard. We loved the view of inter coastal waterway from our rooms. The house itself is in very good condition. All of the interior furnishings appeared new. The owners could not have been nicer, and the fact that they accepted PayPal made it easy to rent with confidence (many other properties wanted money orders, cashier's checks, etc., which offered no protection to the renter). The house is very close to Pompano Beach (about 5 minutes, just a short drive down Atlantic Avenue). Along the way there is a Publix supermarket, which is a large, well equipped supermarket. We did all our food shopping for the week there, and cooked at the house. The movie theater was about a 15 minute drive. In summary, this is a beautiful house, in a great location, and it's a great value.
no more hotels for me

Fabulous place. Everything was as great as the owner described. What a great place. Much better than described. The pictures do not do it justice. The house was immaculate nad the furnishings were all new. Outside recreation areas (Dock, pool, bbq, tiki hut, and furnishings) not to mention the view made me feel like I was in the tropics Have been traveling and entingf for many years, and this is one of the best values I have come across. Highly recommended and I will definately consider renting it again.
Perfect Vacation Home in Pompano Beach
December 3, 2010
This home in Pompano Beach is a perfect getaway for a family vacation. We rented it over Thanksgiving and have many fond memories. The pool and hot tub overlook the waterways. Having coffee at the outside table overlooking the sunrise was a perfect way to start the day. The grill and tiki are the perfect way to end the day. Each bedroom is comfortably decorated and comes with a nice plush robe. The main living room has a big sectional couch which is perfect for family gatherings to watch TV. The large kitchen overlooks the pool and comes with every appliance and amenity you could ask for. This house is closely situated to the beach, grocery stores, and shopping malls. The owners went out of their way to make sure my family's needs were met. I highly recommend this rental home. You won't be disappointed.
