Within walking distance there are 5+ terrific restaurants, including a French Bakery, Gourmet Hamburgers, one of the best Breakfast Nooks in town, Chicago Hot Dogs/Pizza, Authentic German(German Guest Approved), and Fish and Chop place with great Tiki Hut! We have worked with some of the local establishments to provide free drinks/discounts! Dozens of other restaurants within a 2 mile radius. 1.5 miles as the crow flies to the beach increases our easterly ocean breezes. We are 3 miles away by car to the beaches. We are 6 miles from Fort Lauderdale beach and 9 miles from the Airport and Port Everglades. Additionally, we have 2 bikes available and a barbeque for our guests to use (both upon request and $5 propane charge for grill) first come, first serve.

Any children under 12 will need to be pre-approved as this space opens on to the pool area and additional hazards need to be addressed on a case by case basis. This space is NOT appropriate for co-sleeping with babies. The Adjustable bed makes that DANGEROUS. If there is a child under 2 years old AND if the number of adult guests is MORE THAN 1 (i.e. 3 human beings), we will charge an additional $25 per day cleaning fee for the infant. Any and all children (of ANY age), must be requested in advance. Any infant or child brought by a guest without pre-approval will be charged with a minimum of $25 per day extra cleaning fee.

Pets are not permitted. Any pets that are brought by the guest without being pre-approved will be charged a minimum of $200 per pet/ per stay.

On occasion we do permit a 3rd person to occupy the space and we set up an Airbed. We charge an extra $25 per person/per night and this would have to be approved in advance.

Guest access

Guests have private entrances both front and back. All are invited to enjoy the pool, backyard, fire pit, lounges, tables and grill if they choose. Additionally two bikes are available upon request for the use of our guests on a first come first serve basis. The Barbecue requires a $5 propane charge, you must clean after using and have Greg to set up for you and bikes must be requested each time so we always know where they are.

Interaction with guests

We tend to be very open and welcoming. Lorraine has been a resident of Florida since 1981, Greg since 1999 and we are happy to help direct guests to the attractions and or services they might be looking for. We send out a welcome letter with several links to help you plan your stay about 2 weeks to 10 days before you arrive. If you have specific requests, please let us know. Check out is at noon and check in is at 3. We personally check in all guests to familiarize you with the space and the rules and make sure that you can get oriented and settled in.

Other things to note

We are foodies and have cooked and shared delicious family style meals. We enjoy many cuisines, including Italian, Mexican, Polish, American, Steak and chops, French, Chinese, Greek and we are willing to try a hand at just about anything. We usually have our ‘step’ dogs on the property on Saturdays, they are friendly and are just here for the day. We try to maintain everything to the best of our ability and we will do our best to communicate with you if there is something that might impact you when you are here. We ask that if there is something that needs our attention, please let us know as soon as possible so we can address it as quickly as possible.

If you do not plan on being here for this reservation (3rd party booking), We require that you let us know EXACTLY WHO will be staying. We reserve the right to refuse entry, ask additional questions, ask for additional ID, or any other security measure we feel necessary. Airbnb is a site based on Trust and if you book for someone else without letting us know who will be staying in our home, it is a violation of that trust, the Airbnb terms of service and these rules.

Lorraine and Greg are great hosts. The studio is really beautiful! We enjoyed our stay and will come back. Everthing was clean and the studio got everything you need. The best Airbnb experience so far :-)

We stayed at Lorraine and Greg's place for a Miami Hurricanes football game and weren't needing a whole lot in terms of amenities. However, their place completely over-delivered! They were very flexible with check-in (which was a huge help since we didn't get in until 1:30AM. The space itself is modern and comes with everything you may need. They also gave us some coupons and discount offers to local restaurants which was a really nice perk. We would definitely stay there again!

Staying at Lorraine & Greg's private studio was my first AirBNB visit. The studio was immaculate and the linens were extremely comfortable. The air circulation was perfect and the privacy was better than any hotel you could experience. They take meticulous care of their home as well as attending to their guests. While I did not need much of their time - they were kind enough to message me daily if there was anything they could do to assist. Lorraine & Greg were also wonderful with suggestions, and awesome coupons, for establishments that they either frequently visit or come across. If I am in Fort Lauderdale again, I would definitely stay in their beautiful studio! Thank you Lorraine & Greg for being so selfless, attentive and down to earth.
