This 2BR/2BA home features a screened lanai and a pool surrounded by tropical vegetation. Fire up the barbeque for a cookout.

Throughout the home, you’ll find terra cotta tile floors and splashes of vibrant color.

You’re less than 2 miles from the nearest beach and just over 4 miles from Ft. Lauderdale Beach. You’re also near an array of dining, pubs, and shopping options.

LIVING AREA

Unwind in the living room on the sectional sleeper sofa or one of the three chairs and watch a movie on the 52” flat-screen TV that includes Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube.

KITCHEN & DINING

The kitchen features stainless appliances, granite countertops, and an island with a wine bar. In the morning, brew up a pot of coffee, and head out to the pool deck for a quiet start to the day.

Two can sit at the island bar stools to chat with the chef during meal prep, and six can gather at the dining table when it comes time to eat. Or head out to enjoy a poolside meal at the table for six.

BEDROOMS & BATHS

When it is time to tuck in for the night, the master bedroom offers a king bed and a flat-screen TV, while the guest room has a full bed and a flat-screen TV. There are two bathrooms, one with a tub/shower combination and the other with a walk-in shower.

OUTDOOR AREAS

After a morning on the shore, spend the afternoon in your own tropical oasis. The screened lanai has a sofa and two chairs, a perfect spot to gather for cocktails and conversation.

Take a dip in the backyard pool or relax with a beach read in one of the lounge chairs.

Come evening, fire up the barbeque and sizzle some steaks for an easy dinner. Then mix up a batch of margaritas and gather for a game of cards at the poolside table.

EXTRA AMENITIES & MORE DETAILS

Amenities include a washer/dryer unit, parking for three cars, two bikes, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and beach toys.

THE LOCATION

You’re less than 2 miles from Earl Lifshey Ocean Park, where you can stretch out on the sand and go for a swim. And the shopping, dining, and water sports of Ft. Lauderdale Beach are less than 5 miles away.

You’re just a walk or short drive from all the restaurants, pubs, and shopping options in Wilton Manor and Oakland Park. Grab a classic American breakfast at the Peter Pan Diner. For a light lunch, try Rendez Vous Bakery and Bistro. And for something unique, check out Inkanto Peruvian Cuisine.

If you need a day out of the sun, the AMC Dine-in Theatre is just 1.3 miles away.

I love the entire rental, & will be back again. The pool was great & the house was very relaxing & a good location just being short drive from the beach & the strip of Fort Lauderdale. My stay was amazing.
Tierra B. Jul 2022
It was a good experience for the weekend. I enjoyed the pool once it got cleaned out on Friday. I would say better chairs for the kitchen table would be great. The ones that are there now have been super glued back together, very poor quality.
Manager response:
Hi, Tierra! We're so glad you chose to stay with us and appreciate your feedback. The homeowner will be visiting soon, at which time he will replace the chairs. Thank you!
Rebecca H. Jul 2022
The house was very clean, nice and homey.
The closed in patio with the outdoor fans was an extra bonus. The pool was the icing on the cake, we enjoyed the pool each evening .
David H. Jun 2022
This was my third time staying in this wonderful home. Such an amazing little home. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. The resort area in the back is the perfect place to spend the day, the beds are comfortable and it's so private and quiet. Great neighborhood with lots to do.
Patricia W. Jun 2022
The house was lovely and the backyard an oasis. The pool is terrific with lots of sun and shade. Great location for restaurants and shops. Hope to return sometime soon.
Jessica E. Apr 2022
We had a wonderful stay at the Flamingo retreat. Everything in the home was very clean and so well designed to make it feel very special. The back yard with the pool was so beautiful and relaxing! The place is as nice as the photos on the website.
Lauren P. Apr 2022
We loved it! It was perfect for my family of four! It was clean and comfortable!
Richard C. Apr 2022
Perfect little getaway. The place was clean upon arrival and was exactly what we were looking for. The listing visualizes everything you get. Only reason for 4 stars; only half of the grill is operable, and the pool temp was a bit cold for a mid April stay. Everything else was great!
Manager response:
Thanks for sharing your feedback with us, Richard. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! We sincerely apologize for the issues you encountered with the grill and have passed your comments along to our local manager who will work with our maintenance team to ensure it is functioning properly. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and we hope to host you again soon!
John F. Mar 2022
This home was a perfect tranquil retreat for our week of vacation. Well decorated, comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen,
it had everything we needed. The very private tropical back yard and heated pool were beautiful. It’s quiet location is convenient to shops and restaurants, several within a 2-3 block walk. We will definitely be back!
Donald B. Mar 2022
This was not our first monthly rental. we loved it as usual,a special shout out for JOSE who as in past years really took good care of us and the property. Hope to come in 2023......db
Rivkie L. Jan 2022
A comfortable small house, with a nicely heated pool. We enjoyed our stay very much. We were disappointed with the Vacasa service. They did not respond in a timely fashion.
Manager response:
Rivkie, we sincerely apologize for the poor correspondence during your stay and any inconvenience this had caused. We are actively hiring and training new agents to ensure that we can provide prompt assistance to all of our guests moving forward. We hope to host you for another pleasant stay in the future!

We will definitely rent this home in the future. 100% satisfied! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Travis pope . Jul 2021
The house was nice. The pool was nice except the pool had algae growing on half of almost our whole trip until Thursday when the pool guy showed up. It would of been nice to know when the lawn are people and the pool people were coming. And little things like coffee filters, salt and pepper, paper towels and few more reg towels and dish rags would of been nice. Overall it was a nice stay and we had a great trip.

This is our second time staying in this wonderful home. We enjoy the beautiful backyard and heated pool. The house is clean and comfortable, in a quiet, excellent location. We hope to stay there again next year! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Xandra mccloud . Nov 2020
We were very dissatisfied with our stay. My two friends and I wanted to enjoy a safe, fun filled weekend inside of a house with a pool and watch movies all weekend. We were just trying to take a quick break from this crazy year. We were stuck inside because of the rain (out of your control of course). However, there was no WiFi or cable for the entire duration of our stay, and the toilet in the main bathroom didn’t work. We spent the entire day today waiting for people to come and fix these issues. Also, Xfinity was supposed to show up between 3-4 and they never came. The person who came to fix the toilet revealed that it had been turned off and he couldn’t fix it because that’s beyond his knowledge. Someone knew there was a problem before we got there and tried to disguise it. We were stuck inside all weekend with no WiFi or cable. If we wanted to do this, we would have rented a cabin in the woods. To rectify this situation, the offered to refund $85. I think this is unreasonable considering how much we spent. I will say that they are very responsive when you ask them a question. The house was nice, but there was a significant lack of the listed amenities, and they aren’t fair in how they reimburse. I’m still waiting on a response from the Home Care team. This is not the first time they’re hearing about this.

Tamia johnson-datcher . Jun 2020
The vacation rental was perfect other than the blind in my room not working. It was clean, spacious, well stocked with all home comforts, such as bikes, beach towels, kitchen appliances...etc. I noticed 1 thing that did not appear correct made a phone call and it was fixed instantly! It was a great relaxtion stay for a Birthday! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I love this place so much I had to have a return visit. I was just here in May and it was such a great place I had to return. Small issue with the living room TV but the Turnkey team did a great job. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Tammie williams . Aug 2019
This was a perfect little place to hang out for a few days. There was more than enough room for our family of four. The kitchen is the best stocked kitchen I’ve stayed with. I really appreciated not having to do dishes after every meal. The AC worked great, the backyard is beautiful. It is exactly as it looks in the pictures. It is not without age (TV tilted, the towels a bit thin), but still a very nice place. I thought it was quite clean. I’d stay again. It is a nice neighborhood, quiet, private, close to good eats and the beach. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Melody gonzalez . Jul 2019

I did quite a bit of shopping online prior to booking a rental in the area. The ad was accurate in every detail and the pictures were also accurate. The rental is very comfortable This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

David hill . May 2019
We immediately knew it was going to be a wonderful week as soon as we stepped in the door of this beautiful home. It was so clean and fresh smelling plus it was even better than the pictures. The location was perfect, everything you will need is close by, good restaurants and fun nightlife. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you will need, the bathrooms and bedrooms are great. The pool and the ground are immaculate If you have reserved this property your in for a treat. Turnkey did a fantastic job of fixing anything we needed, they were very prompt and courteous. I loved the privacy of the property and the neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful. I will be booking this home again in the near future.

Wasn’t what we expected. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Seveadra genesie . Mar 2019
The location was great! Nice, private backyard area. The pool was nice although it was hazy we arrived-was hazy. The pool guy did stop by to clean after we were there for a day. I think these things should be done prior to our arrival. Great kitchen although the house could stand to be a bit cleaner. Also did not smell fresh at all. We used air freshers everywhere and aired out the home as much as we could. There were stray hairs all over(dog and human, I think), stained comforter on the bed, dusty baseboards, used shampoo and conditioner left in the bathroom, the first bedroom has a bed that sinks down into the frame at the corner when you sit on it. Wish that it was equipped better with everyday things like salt and pepper and an extra toilet paper roll. Overall, our trip was good. If I may make one major `s a good idea to inform the guests that someone is coming from maintenance. They just walk into the gate while your are sunbathing!! No announcement at all. How are we to know they actually work for the company and are not intruders??? Most likely will not stay at this home again, but we did have a great Florida vacation This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Perfect place for our family of five! Kids loved the pool and the house was just right! Very relaxing and a short drive to the beach This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Donald ferrar . Jan 2019
The place is as advertised in the picture and narrative. Modern, clean, great appliances, mattresses, linens. Back yard and pool are outstanding. Very private and comfortable. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Brent traina . Nov 2018
The house was beautiful and serene. We spent much of our time enjoying the lanai overlooking the pool. The beautiful backyard horticulture made this location very private. The palms were absolutely stunning!

It was comfortable, cozy and clean. The bed was comfortable -- something you don`t have with many vacation rentals.

The location was in a safe neighborhood and centralized making it a 5-10 minute drive to anywhere in Ft. Lauderdale. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Jennifer johnson . Jul 2018
An overall lovely experience for me and my family. Few little things/touches, we thought were lacking--eg no toilet paper, dust bunnies/hair balls and bathroom mildew, but otherwise a good experience. Just be mindful for the next family.

Melody gonzalez . Jul 2018
I have to say this was the best Florida vacation we have had in a while. The property was amazing, just as described. Very clean and welcoming. I cannot say that we had any issues. I had to figure out how to program the A/C; which was not big deal but customer service was right there to help. They were attentive and pleasant. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends. I will be going back next year for sure. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

This house has everything you need. Very private backyard, beautiful warm heart shape pool and everything you need for cooking. Close to the beach and shops. I would rent this over and over again. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Hazel lee . May 2018
I came down to our annual girl`s trip with friends of mine. We absolutely loved the house. Unfortunately the weather did not allow for us to enjoy the pool. We will be back one day...just for that purpose. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Michael motta . Mar 2018
WE ENJOYED OUR STAY AT THIS PROPERTY. IT WAS VERY CLEAN, AND WELL TAKEN CARE OF. THE OUTSIDE GROUNDS ARE BEAUTIFUL, MAKING TIME SPENT AROUND THE COOL HEART SHAPED POOL PLEASING AND RELAXING. THE LOCATION IS CONVENIENT TO ALL TYPES OF SHOPPING. WE SPENT TIME SEEING SIGHTS, WALKING ON THE RIVERWALK AND BEACHES WHICH ARE NEAR BY. THE RESERVATION PROCESS WAS GREAT, THE PROPERTY DESCRIPTION WAS ACCURATE, IT EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATION AND WE HAD A NICE VACATION.

Rivkie lichtenstein . Jan 2018
The management company communicated well with us. We found the instructions very convenient and simple for entering the home. All amenities were as described. The home was very clean and well maintained. There was a generous supply of starter items in the home (eg. tissues, detergent, aluminum foil) There was plenty of space to relax, with a wide variety of seating options. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the beautiful, very private outdoor area immensely. The pool was heated comfortably, and we were able to swim even when it wasn`t that warm out. We hope to visit again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Monika mariak . Sep 2017
Home was absolutely perfect and as described. Interior was very clean and modern, bedrooms were good size, kitchen was beautiful, open and perfect for entertaining. Back yard was like paradise! Private with gorgeous landscaping and good size pool. We went there 2 weeks after hurricane Irma and everything looked like no storm ever went through it. Will definitely come back! Highly recommend! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Harold moore . Sep 2017
First, this is not located in Ft Lauderdale as advertised. This was told to property management company and still showing wrong city. There was nothing in the listing about an additional pet deposit either. Other than that, the house was comfortable and clean. Swimming pool was great since the beach was not very close. Loved the privacy in the back yard. Everything worked well except the ice maker, very slow, we had to buy ice. Kitchen very well equipped, washer and dryer a big plus, bathrooms clean and had all amenities needed. Beds were comfortable. Parking was big enough for our travel van. We enjoyed our week there.

TurnKey customer service is horrible... We checked in to the rental & there was no toilet paper, instructions for locking the door didn`t work. No instructions on how to operate stereo. Not the home I originally booked. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
