you can rent the east bedroom of this secluded private tropical enclave with emphasis on outdoor living. very close the beaches, cruise ship docks, convention center, bars, restaurants, shopping, & downtown. & very near the airport...but no plane noise.
*airport is 2.5 miles (4-5km), cruise ships are 1 mile(2km),beach is 3 miles(5km) from house.

shares swimming pool with the b&b house next door, gardens, patio, porch, kitchen (help yourself to breakfast items...), living/dining areas, parking yard, WIFI.
its a 2 bedroom house with both bedrooms available to rent, so you may have the house to yourself, or you may share it with others.

Interaction with guests

jim, the host lives nearby, so typically will visit briefly to see how guests are doing & oversee the house/pool/garden maintenance. this house shares the pool & sun deck with fellow guests in your house & those in the house next door.
because the host doesnt live in the house its more of a hostel-type living situation than a ''owner/operator/host in residence''; that is, guests come and go while enjoying their particular interests, ie relaxing pool-side, cooking, watching tv, interacting with you and others. its a fun way to meet interesting people from diverse walks of life.... you may have to disobey your mother & actually talk with strangers!!!!

Other things to note

enjoy the privacy of the garden & pool areas to enjoy a wonderful peaceful well-tanned lifestyle.

Our second stay at Jim's place was even better than the first. He couldn't have been kinder or more considerate of our needs. Going to Fort Lauderdale? Don't hesitate. Book Jim's place. You can thank me later.

The place is just as described and showed in photos. It is a very comfortable house with all the appliances you need for helping yourself. It has a central A/C system you share with other guests. And hot and cold water too. We were really positively impressed by all the help we got from Jim. He is a really nice guy who aggregates great value to his house and service. We strongly recommend to stay here.

hi. originally from california, i've made my living as an artist since 1976 & travelled to 60+ countries, settling here in fort laud, ''the yachting capital of the world''. erika, my wife, & i speak 9 languages between us. i love boats, biking, creating paintings, am an avid diver, & meeting visitors.
sharing the pool with this airbnb house is a yacht crew residence next door, with young world-travelers, chefs, captains, pilots, nautical engineers... you can see the whole world from your own back yard!
