A Perfect vacation bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

A Perfect vacation bungalow totally worth the money.

We spent 11 nights in the house and was very satisfied. Owners were very polite and assisted us very well! Close to beach, supermarket, galleria, mall and good golfcourses. Nice and pretty quiet neighbourhood. Everything we needed in house, grill and beach chairs. Clean and neat and tastfully decorated. Nice garden and excellent pool. We really have no complaints and the price is about the same as a hotel. On departure we could check out at 5 PM instead of 11 AM due to late flight home which was highly appriciated. We will definitely recommend or come back! Thanks Jerry and Tommy!!!!

Well-maintained home

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly like the pictures shown. The pool area is large enough. The backyard is gorgeous with lots of lush tropical plants. The location of the house is wonderful. It's literally 5 minutes by car to the beach. Shops, groceries are walking distance and the neighborhood is quiet. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

Perfect rental. Quiet, clean, fully stocked, beautiful yard & pool.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 really enjoyed our stay at the Deco Bungalow. My parents took one room, my husband and I the other, and the two kids slept in the living room on the pullout couch. There was plenty of room and space for all of us. The neighborhood is quiet and residential, but a quick drive to shopping and the beach. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and maintained. The front yard has the heated pool - which is also very nicely maintained. A pool guy comes to clean each week. There are plenty of towels and all the little details that you take for granted in a house, like a hairdryer, first aid kit, spices, sharp kitchen knives, dvds, and a backyard gas grill. I highly recommended this rental.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to have you back again. The property does have a child pool barrier fence for our guests use. We were never asked to put it up so we assumed you did not want it as most guests do not want it around the pool.. I wish you would have let us know you wanted it put up and we would have done so. We do our best to be sure that all of our guests have all of the things they need for their stay from bathroom items to a fully stocked kitchen. Thanks for the kind words. Jerry

Fall in Ft. Lauderdale:)

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my friend and I to visit my nephew who is now living in Florida.The home is so well decorated and cozy. I loved sitting out on the back patio in the mornings drinking coffee soaking up that beautiful landscaping and we really enjoyed the wonderful pool deck. The pool water was a bit cool during our stay, so we didn't swim as much we had planned, but the pool chairs and umbrella were all comfortable and made for a very relaxing vacation.

The bedrooms were a good size for us and my friend and I both agreed the mattresses and pillows were extremely comfortable.

I loved that this home recycled, and I did not mind moving the cans for trash collection during our stay. The area was very quiet and it felt like we were in our own home away from home:)) I had personal contact with the owner and the property manager during our stay and I can not say enough good things about them both. Location is great, cleanliness amazing, comfortable, beautiful, calming, relaxing, what more could you possibly want from a vacation home! Except..... highly affordable!!...... which it was!! Thanks Jerry! Hope to rent from you again next year :)

This home would fit many personalities from young to old. My 25 year old nephew stopped by and he was blown away by the remodel. He loved it! Jerry, I think you should flip another house ;) Thanks for having us, Sincerely, Rhonda Harris

Owner's Response: Thanks Rhonda for the great comments. We love this house as well. I love having the big back yard and the pool space as well. We do our best to make sure our guests have a great stay with is. The weather turned cool quicker than we expected. We ended up turning on the pool heater just after your stay. I wish you would have told us the pool was cool and I would have had our property manager turn it on for you. It is now a pleasant 88 degrees for the rest of the winter. We would love to have you come again any time. Jerry
