This 650 sq-ft completely private, loft-style guest house is ideally located in a cute historic neighborhood in downtown Fort Lauderdale - short walks to the Broward Center for Performing Arts, Science Museum, Art Museum, Himmarshee, Riverfront, and Las Olas Blvd. Just a 3 mile bike ride to Fort Lauderdale Beach (bikes included). Situated on the second level of a detached, 1930's 2-car garage behind the main house, it's a cozy, clean, urban getaway.
I usually have a 5 night minimum booking but from time to time when there is last minute availability or gaps between bookings, I offer 3 night stays. Just ask!
Looking to spend your Fort Lauderdale vacation downtown, strolling Las Olas' shops and cafes? Yacht crew on a stop over? In town for a restful weekend or visiting Fort Lauderdale for downtown business?
This recently redesigned above-garage studio loft is ideally located downtown Fort Lauderdale - just a 3 min walk to downtown destinations, 5 minute walk to Historical Fort Lauderdale, and 7 minute walk to Riverfront and Las Olas Blvd.
The 600 sq ft fully equipped studio is situated above a detached 2-car garage behind a 1934 old-Florida style home where the homeowner resides full time. The property is ideal for singles or couples, though there is space for a third person or crib upon request.
This fresh, airy studio will set the tone for your vacation. Crisp and cool- we've designed the space to feel casual, clean and cozy. A central staircase entrance separates the living area from the bedroom. The living area is perfect for relaxing, watching movies on the LCD television, or finishing off any last minute work (wi-fi available).
The island kitchen has all the basics you need to prepare simple meals at home. Full size refrigerator, stove/oven, and microwave, as well as a French press coffee maker, toaster, and plenty of handy kitchen gadgets.
The bedroom offers a queen sized bed with duvet and crisp linens. Inside the walk-in closet you'll find everything you need to make your stay comfortable- including a luggage rack, iron and ironing board, beach towels and extra linens.
The contemporary tiled bathroom was renovated in May 2015 and offers a spacious bathtub and shower, as well as towels, hair dryer, and extra toiletries should you forget anything at home.

I was raised in South Florida and born in the mid-west. I love learning about culture and feeling creativity. If I am cooking, eating, and/ or drinking wine, I am in my happy place. I am a lover of travel, playing the ukulele, being outdoors, and wood working. Cleaning and yard work are my therapies.
I work as a firefighter/ paramedic in my free time. I am also a lifetime college student working on some more degrees simply because I take joy in learning.
I love to host people of all ethnicity, races, religions, orientations, cultures, genders, beliefs, and creativity. LGBTQ friendly. There is no room here for bigotry or prejudice as well as a hefty inflation for ignorance.
