The house was great, we stayed for over 3 weeks and had a cleaner come once a week, it was exactly what we needed. Good location - walking distance to get everything you need. The pool area was nice and the other guests who came in and out where great interesting people.

Jim's place was pretty easy to find, and a two minute walk from a great barbecue place, and some basic shops. The set up was not flash, but clean and comfortable, and very homely. We stayed two nights, and had great fun chatting in the shared kitchen and lounge with the other travellers, just 2 each night. The pool was beautiful and a relaxing place to spend a few hours. We stayed a couple of nights in the middle of a month trip, and it was great to be able to do some cooking and some washing. Jim was great to talk to, and has obviously travelled a lot.

My mother and I were looking for a place to stay while on our Great Winter Escape. Jim's Sky Room was perfect for us. It had two twin beds, private bathroom and a door lock code for privacy and security. The room shares a living space with another rentable room. The living space feels like home- it has a living room with a couple couches and cable tv, and a kitchen that has lots of dishes, appliances, etc., should you want to cook during your stay. My mom and I opted to walk to several of the nearby restaurants including a BBQ place (try the brisket and baby back ribs!) which is steps away from the home. We also really enjoyed the Quarterdeck Restaurant (try the jumbalaya pasta and spinach and goat cheese salad!) For groceries, there's a 24 hour Walgreens steps away from Jim's place, and a Winn Dixie and Publix that are about a 20 minute walk. One day we walked to the Ft. Lauderdale beach. It's about 3 miles away. Because of all the traffic we determined walking, a bike, or some mode of public transportation are the best options for getting there. We also spent one day reading by the pool at Jim's place. It's enclosed and a perfect little oasis for relaxing. There are plenty of chairs, towels, and pool toys. Jim told us more than once he wanted us to relax and have a good time and we sure did. He was very interesting to talk to and made us feel so welcomed. Our flight didn't leave until late one day and he said we could leave our belongings in the foyer while we went out to explore. We ended up at the Flamingo Gardens which is a 15 minute drive from the home. It's a botanic garden that has all kinds of animals and unique vegetation. It's family friendly and a GREAT way to kill a couple hours while waiting for a late flight. All in all we had an amazing time in Ft. Lauderdale and a terrific experience at Jim's home. Thank you, Jim! We hope to see you again!
