What To Look For In A Fort Lauderdale Vacation Rental

The sandy beaches, the sunny skies, the yachts, the year-round temperate weather–it’s easy to see why Fort Lauderdale, the Venice of America, draws more than 14 million tourists annually.
Sometime in the 1980s, the city began its transformation from spring break party city to a family-friendly destination. Whether you want to relax by the ocean, enjoy the nightlife, restaurants, shopping, or settle at a home base to explore theme parks, a vacation rental can be both more comfortable and less expensive than a hotel room. Take stock of your needs and wishes as you begin your search for the perfect home away from home, Lauderdale style.

Location, location…you know the drill
If you’re there for the beaches, greater Fort Lauderdale has six of them: In addition to Fort Lauderdale Beach, there are Dania Beach, Deerfield Beach, Hollywood, Pompano Beach, and Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, for a grand 23 miles of oceanfront. More than 300 miles of Intracoastal Waterway and canals gave it the “Venice of America” nickname, and expand the concept of waterfront. Many vacation rentals are by the seashore. Check for sites where you can jump on the city’s water taxis for sightseeing if you love the water.

If you like shopping, check the map before you rent. You can take the water taxi to Fort Lauderdale’s upscale Galleria. Las Olas Boulevard is the place for boutiques and galleries. Head west to find a rental home near the massive outlet mall complex Sawgrass Mills.

Check the registration
With so many owners looking to rent to vacationers, Fort Lauderdale has required sites to register with the city since 2015. Make sure to go through a reputable property management company, like Fort Lauderdale Stays, whose properties are registered.

Make it personal
To find your happy place, in Fort Lauderdale as with anywhere you’re traveling, make a list before you search. How many bedrooms and bathrooms will make your crew comfortable? Do you want a pool? (Hey, you can’t go to the beach all the time.) Do you prefer casual or elegant? Don’t forget to confirm details such as deposits, fees and what amenities will be provided. Check the neighborhood, too: Quiet or party hearty? Is there a grocery store nearby?
With hundreds of properties looking for guests, it won’t be hard to find your perfect match.
