Jim’s Place is so comfortable and cozy, being able to stay here is a blessing! It’s a home away from home, in which Jim is a great host and works with special factors and was able to help me out! I cannot thank him enough. The place is spacious, clean, and Jim is so friendly it just makes you want to book!

Good location with great places to eat nearby or even bbq right out the front door. Simple place but just as advertised. Everything you need for an easy stay and much better value than a hotel. We would stay there again. Jim was very nice and ready to help as needed.

Jim's place was perfect for us. The separate beds in the two rooms fit our needs exactly. Jim was an excellent host, and came over to offer suggestions for places to eat and visit in the area. We followed his advice, and went to the the Southport Raw Bar. The food was fantastic! Thanks Jim, for the hospitality.

We had an amazing experience at Jim's place! We didn't travel from far (Miami) but it was the perfect one night vacation. Not too far but far enough. Jim's place was very close to everything we needed. Food, stores and nightlife. During the day we enjoyed the pool and had a fun little volleyball game. The pool is nice and relaxing. The monkeys in the trees by the pool were a sight to see haha. The house was roomy enough for all of us to be comfortable and everything was perfect! We felt relaxed and comfortable at Jim's. At night we went out to las olas ($5 Uber ride), you can't beat it! Overall it was a very pleasurable experience and Jim was a great host and he makes sure everything is taken care of. The space, location, and host were 10/10!

The house is very cozy and it made us feel like we were home. Jim is great especially with his quick replies. From the moment I made a reservation to the very end of our stay. I would definitely come back and stay here again and of course recommend yo rent from Jim and Erika. Thank you again Jim for your amazing hospitality!

Wonderful, cozy little place! The pool is secluded and cool. Lots of cozy place to sit and enjoy the Florida weather. It is a close walk to the convention center and other restaurants and shops. Plus it is just a short Uber ride from the airport! Everything was clean and we had all we needed to utilize the kitchen and other facilities. There was a coin laundry on site so I didn't have to go home with dirty clothes! Jim is the ultimate host. Very accommodating and offers whatever is needed to make your stay more comfortable! I would recommend Jims place to anyone traveling to Ft Lauderdale and I plan to rent again next year when we are in town!
