Jan & Tom are Great! As well, so is there son, Scott. This was our third or fourth stay at this unit. We always do a Mother/Daughter trip In March/April. This unit is great as there were six of us. This unit has 3 bedrooms with 3 baths and it was really great when we were getting ready to go out or when someone wanted to retire for the evening and the rest were up later. Once doors are closed to the bedrooms - you hear nothing. Place is very clean. Kitchen is well equipped. You have everything at your fingertips for the beach (from beach towels, to chairs, umbrellas and even sand toys if needed). The outside is also a very enjoyable space with a nice gas grill, table and plenty of chairs and umbrellas. Best of all is the location. You are walking distance to everything and restaurants are not even 5 minutes away. You have both washer and dryer which come in handy. Love, Love this unit. We come back year after year!
We would like to thank Jan and Tom for allowing us to stay in this property. We really enjoyed our visit. This place is a hidden gem right,providing a private oasis, surrounded by the restaurants and the activities offered at the Lauderdale by the Sea area. Walk to everything. The main beach is a block away.
This unit was meticulously cared for going well beyond the expected supplies of a typical rental. Well stocked kitchen and bathroom . Beach chairs and umbrellas. Laundry on site n/c.
We were welcomed and shown around by their son Scott and a beautiful basket that helped to serve breakfast for the first morning before shopping. Lovely BBQ to use. Every need thought of. Highly recommend this unit. Great for a family get away. Perfect combination of quiet and activity without ever needing to get back into your car. Really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this unit for a family vacation. 5 stars all the way!
This was our second visit to this house. When you step into it you step back into the late fifties (I know I'm dating myself). The house is clean as can be and convenient to everything in Ft. Lauderdale. You may not want to go anywhere after you go to the very private, tropical back yard with its pool. It is an easy walk to the beach if you can get away from the pool.
What's not to like? The house is squeaky clean, well stocked and in easy walking distance to the beach (it is also fun to see the cruise ships come and go). This was our second time there and we loved it both times. We especially liked the private pool.
We come home every January for a vacation with our STA classmates and over the years have stayed at many places for our visit. This home is hands-down the BEST! The home comfortably accommodated the six of us and provided ample gathering room for dinners and watching TV with friends. The kitchen was well-appointed and had we been so inclined we could have easily made more complicated meals due to this fully equipped space. Beach towels, shower products and basic food items were provided so you can start your vacation right off with a big trip to the grocery store. Proximity to the beach was perfect and the beach is stunning. Walking paths for exercise are there and proximity to restaurants were in easy walking distance. Tom and Jan were helpful and thoughtful hosts and we enjoyed our stay so much we booked again for next year!
Thank you for a very relaxing getaway. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the house very much. It was very clean and stocked with everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the bicycles and kayaks several times during our stay. The welcome basket was a nice touch. We can't wait to go back and enjoy our coffee on the beautiful pool patio overlooking the canal.
Thanks Jan & Tom for another great vacation rental! The property was exactly as described. Great people to work with, very responsive to any needs. House was very well stocked with everything we needed. Very close to stores for grocery shopping. Perfect location, just minutes from everything we wanted to do. LOVED the pool area, enjoyed having breakfast and morning coffee out there every day. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a spacious and well kept property on the waterway. Thanks again Jan and Tom! (July 2018)
This is a very comfortable and clean house. The beds are comfortable and the yard and pool are great. We enjoyed staying at this house a lot. We had everything we needed included a quiet dishwasher, quality washer and dryer and warm pool. The house is exactly as represented. The management team is responsive and pleasant to work with.
Thank you Tom & Jan,
The welcome basket was a nice gesture. Everything with our stay was great. We will be back.
Date of Stay: Week of 8/20/2017 - We enjoyed our stay at the Tropical Garden Apartment very much. The location had everything as advertised, close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and even a Walgreens just down the block. The unit was comfortable with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We were very impressed with the basket of fruit, coffee and treats for us. We also were impressed with the unit supplying things like shampoo/conditioner, lotion, sunscreen and even tooth brushes. The beach towels, chairs and umbrellas came in very handy. Thank you!
