About the area

Best attractions in Fort Lauderdale by VacationRentalGizmo Fort Lauderdale's canals and charm have earned it the nickname "The Venice of America." The beaches offer 23 miles of golden sand, lively with the spirited antics of happy vacationers. Sail the blue-green waters on a chartered catamaran, or dive beneath the surface to meet- and-greet the local sea life. Shopping and dining al fresco on Las Olas Boulevard is one of Fort Lauderdale's greatest pleasures, thanks to adorable shops and prime people-watching. Fort Lauderdale Beach The "locals" refer to this area as the A1A strip due to the line of restaurants and bars that are across the street from the beach. Popular locations such as famous Elbow Room, LuLu's Bait Shack, Casablanca's and Rok bar are just a few. Vacationrentalgizmo suggests a fun filled family day on the beach and as the night approaches the area tends to be more geared towards adults and nightlife. "Beaches! That's why you came to Fort Lauderdale and its 23 miles of beachfront are some of the best in Florida, whether you're here for the sun, ocean or people watching." Tom K. Take a Water Taxi and cruise the Intracoastal Waterways- VacationRentalGizmo suggests a leisure trip on the water taxi which is only 10 mins away from most of our vacation rental homes. Cruise along the Intracoastal stopping at frequent restaurants and bars during the day, disembark when you wish and hop back aboard when you are ready. "A must do while in Ft. Lauderdale. The water alone is so beautiful, and all the yachts - awesome! Take a boat ride." Houston,Texas Famous Las Olas with shopping and Nightlife Twinkling lights set the stage each evening for South Florida's most architecturally unique, authentic, and eclectic shopping and dining district. Stroll the boulevard, duck in and out of our cool breezeways, and be delighted by what you'll discover - nowhere else in Florida will you find. . . .Over 30 al fresco dining options, 10 major international art galleries, 2 world class museums, 65 unique shops filled with fashion, accessories, gifts, and more. "A night time promenade, a cocktail or few, a little high end shopping and a great choice of dining. Love it!" Andrew D

“Exceptional property to stay in”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2017

We rented this property for a week. It was exceptional we couldn't of asked for anything more we would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a luxurious home to stay in.

“Fun Meets Luxury”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2016

Walked into what felt like an Italian Castle, grand staircase, beautiful veined tile floors, exquisite lighting. Through the enormous, inviting living room with cook's kitchen and full bar, out onto a deck with another gathering space and a "yacht in the backyard," as the villa is built directly on the intercoastal. Absolutely stunning, the bedrooms were spacious, the furnishings comfortable. My only complaint is that it did not have a stereo system to match the video setup. Beautiful place.

“Awesome Vacation Home!!!”

Reviewed 20 May 2016

Made initial contact with Ted (Property Manager) and he was extremely helpful and always easy to reach. The vacation home was absolutely gorgeous and super spacious; a true luxury home. The home was at a perfect location, with a great boat dock and canal on the back yard, a short walk to the beach, and short drive to must any place. I rented a street legal gulf cart and the family used it to move about throughout the entire local area. The home can easily sleep 12 adults. Beautiful and peaceful porch with a huge Tiki hut. Would highly recommend this vacation home to families with young kids or for multi-families stasys...each of the 4 bedrooms have their own bathrooms.
