Clean, comfy and convenient

Had a marvelous stay at this property. This cottage was immaculate, well organized and well equipped to meet your needs. Loved the location close to the beach, restaurants and shops. Would definitely rent this property again. Many thanks to the owner.

Nice clean rental unit that was close to beach and good resturaunts.

  • 4 of 5

The rental property was just as advertised. A short 3 block walk to the beach and resturaunts. After reading the previous reviews I was under the assumption that the rental came with a shared pool. This wasn't the case which I handn't noticed after securing the rental. Evidently this is a duplex property and the owner has a long term tenant on the property who wanted exclusive use of the pool.This was my bad missing this change in the description of the property. The wasn't a deal breaker for us, but might be for others if a pool is a must have for your rental. I would rent this property again.

Nice cottage on a quiet street

  • 5 of 5

Very clean cottage in a quiet, safe neighborhood, convenient to shopping, restaurants, clubs, and the beach. Well equipped unit with newer furnishings and lots of space. We appreciated the kitchen and BBQ grill since we made many at-home meals. Also utilized the beach gear several days to take advantage of the mid-80s weather during our stay. LBTS is a pretty active beach town but not so crazy as Ft Lauderdale itself or the Miami area. Michael was a great host, and his communication was prompt and helpful in all cases. All-around a great stay in an area that is close to the action yet a couple of blocks from the main commercial strip. We would stay again in the future.

Fabulous Beach Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit from 12/1/16 to 12/5/16 and had a fantastic experience. The property was a very spacious 1 bedroom/1 bathroom which also included a washer and dryer onsite. The unit has been recently renovated and was very well maintained. Best of all, the property is just a short walk to all of the local Lauderdale by the Sea attractions such restaurants, shops, and the beach. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway, and are already looking forward to our next trip back!

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the cottage. Excellent location, within walking distance to the beach and shops. Very clean property, equipped with all the appliances you need as well as utensils cookware and linens. You can tell that the owners have pride in this house. The landscaping is very nice and it is well maintained. If you have more than two people there is a fold out couch. However be aware that the mattress was not the most comfortable and our son chose to sleep on the couch (when folded) instead.

The beach is about a 10 minute walk and is really nice. There are plenty of restaurants in the area.

We would definitely return to "Charming Beach Cottage" again if we travel to Lauderdale by the sea again.

Thank You

Great Stay in Lauderdale by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to take a long vacation in Florida and we found Mike's place on the website, and liked the description, but above all the location. Both (description and location) are totally accurate.

The house was clean and fresh when we arrived, and Mike explained clearly and easily how to get there. The property is located about one block away from one of the main roads in Lauderdale by the Sea.

You are at walking distance from the sea, and several restaurants (Italian, Seafood, Mexican, Burgers, Sushi); you are about 5 mins walk from a large supermarket, that runs also until late in the evening.

We walked to the beach on daily basis; the water and the beach are clean, is not crowded, so you can easily find a spot and relax.

Of course there was some shopping involved, so the property is conveniently located 5 mins away from I-95 if you are looking for the larger Florida Malls. If you are looking for some of the medium/small size malls you can find them within 5-10 min drive as well (e.g. Oakland).

The property can easily host 4 people comfortably, there is one bedroom and a sofa-bed in the living-room. The kitchen is well stock with utensils so you can cook/prepare meals at your own convenience. Bathroom is also clean and well equipped. There is also a washing machine, plus a dryer that becomes very useful if you are on a long trip.

Mike's place is on the top of the list for our next visit to the sunshine state.
