About the area

I have lived here for over 14 years. I love my town and all it has to offer. In just a 1.5 square mile radius, it has more to offer than most areas in South Florida. We have everything from diving to fishing, basketball courts, play grounds, church, bacci court. Paddle boarding and kayaking is also popular. We have our own police department, Fire department and town hall. At the Visitor's center you can go in and find all sorts of pamphlets to go and venture out to although I do offer quite a few in my home. You can go rent bikes at a shop nearby and take a nice long ride into greater Fort Lauderale or simply walk around to the shops, restaurants and pier and watch all the fisherman catch some awesome dinner! The town is safe and very family friendly. Its fun without being overly crowded and invaded with out of control college visitors. We leave that to the greater Fort Lauderdale area ;) Everyone that comes for the first time falls in love with it and always comes back. It is very quiant and has something to do for everyone in the family including the little ones with the puppy shops and ice cream and candy shops. At Christmas, we even have Santa come to town and during the holidays we have our own parades for 4th of July and other holidays. No car is needed if you chose not to rent one but if you do decide last minute, we even have a car rental at walking distance as well. It is the most charming and friendly little town off the south east Atlantic Ocean. Beach, Pier, watching kite surfer at the beach, Sunday farmers market, street parties on weekends with bands Seawatch, Mulligans, Ocean 101, Burger Fi, Arubas Beach cafe, Village Pump and Sushi, Basilic Vietnamese restaruant, The Parisienne by the Sea, Vincents Italian , Keeses' mediterranean, Anglin Organic cafe.

“Perfect family home.”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2016

Thank you Sandra ! Your home was perfect for our large family. Beach, shopping and restaurants was all within walking distance - "PERFECT" !!! Your home is truly a home away from home - very cozy indeed ! Pool was big for a "villa" and the kids spent long days in the water...We can recommend all day long ; - ))

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for sharing your experience about your stay at my home. It was a pleasure to have you and hope you will keep me in mind for the future. As you said perfectly, it is a homey feeling unlike other rentals. And the location is truly perfect ;) Thanks again for leaving a review!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

My friends and I stayed at Sandra's home . There were 10 girls flying in from all over the country. We could not have picked a better place to stay! The house was wonderful and in a perfect location. We spent a lot of our time relaxing by the heated pool. There are 4 lounge chairs to lay on, 2 Adirondack chairs, and the patio table which seats 6. There are floats and noodles for the pool on the side of the house. Every single bed in the house was very comfortable! That is hard to find with vacation rentals. Everyone woke up each morning saying they slept great and they loved their beds. The house has lots of beach towels so you do not need to bring any on the trip. There are also an enormous amount of bath towels which was great. Sandra has a huge DVD collection, tons of board games, cards, and a Wireless speaker (UE Boom) to play music. Sandra has a rolling cart that can be used for the beach and groceries! Publix is a block away which was great. The beach was only a few blocks away. We loved this area of the beach because it was not overly crowded. The larger crowds were down near the pier. We all went swimming in the ocean. The water was warmer than we thought it was going to be! Sandra was extremely helpful when we were deciding what to do and where to eat. She was available to text and got back to me very quickly. Sandra recommended the Bluemoon Fish Company for dinner. It was AMAZING. The restaurant is beautiful and located on the Intercoastal. If you decide to have dinner there definitely make a reservation for the outdoor dining area. We ended up going to the bars right near the beach/pier and had a blast. The house is close enough and safe to walk to and from this area. Sandra also recommended the Organic cafe on the pier. We ate/drank lunch there on Saturday. The atmosphere was very cool-watching the fishermen head out to the pier, beautiful views of the ocean, delicious drinks, and AWESOME burgers. We also went to some of the bars on the Intercoastal. There is a water taxi that can bring you up and down the coast. We did not do this but we saw them driving by while we were at the bars. They looked like a lot of fun-some of them have food and drinks on them. One of the nights we had a BBQ at the house. The grill works great and the kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed for a 10 person dinner. We were all very sad to leave. I HIGHLY recommend this home and I will be coming back for sure!

My family and I rented Sandra's townhouse for our annual family vacation gathering. There were eight of us and we were extremely comfortable in Ms. Naylor's beautiful townhouse. The owner was exceptional. She responded to every inquiry within a short period of time and during our stay she sent emails to make sure everything was going well and gave us a number of recommendations to make our stay more enjoyable. I can't say enough about the support that the owner provided to us stay. The townhouse is absolutely beautiful and very accommodating. The furniture and appointments were excellent and add to that a beautiful pool and patio; it was a nice vacation home . It should be noted that there were TVs in just about every room, a library of DVDs, and the Wi-Fi accommodated all of our devices. As stated Lauderdale Beach is a 5 minute walk from the townhouse and it is a beautiful beach not overcrowded at all. Within 2 1/2 minutes from the townhouse is a small shopping center that included a grocery store, restaurant and many other stores and a bank, making it extremely convenient for a new visitor to the area. Also within walking distance were number of really great beach front restaurants and other activities that really made the visit outstanding. I can't say enough about the beautiful townhouse that Ms. Sandra Naylor offers for vacation rental and I recommended to anyone who is seeking a vacation near the beach with a beautiful and accommodating home with a pool and everything within walking distance. I will definitely stay at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea again. Bhh
