Comfy, Quiet and Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation with our two sons, wives and a two year old. The welcome basket of fresh fruit, muffins and coffee was so appreciated! The house was so comfortable and offered all kinds of amenities! Pool toys and swim vest for the baby, towels, heated pool, grill, great beds and linens, fully equipped kitchen, large screened porch...did I mention quiet? We only left to go to the beach and buy food! Not the most modern or super fancy, but we were all comfortable, just what we wanted!

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our Harbor Beach House stay with my in-laws and I really couldn't be happier with our experience.

The location is excellent, residential and quiet but still very close to the busy night life area on the beach front.

During the day we went to the beach then plunged into the lovely pool when we got home - BLISS!! The garage by the way is full of bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, literally everything you could need for a day at the beach. There is also a table tennis table and a pool table.

In the evenings we either took a $5 uber trip to the bars/restaurants in the evening for live music and great food or got groceries + beer & wine from nearby Publix and cooked poolside on the grill and sat outside enjoying the warm evenings.

On our last day there was alot of flight delays as Hurricane Matthew had just passed. When we called to ask if we changed our flights would we be able to stay another day and have a late check out, management could not have been more gracious and easy going. No extra paperwork just took the day out of our deposit and didnt charge for the very late check out of 4pm which I found VERY refreshing in this day and age.

We had no children with us but I would recommend this property to families with kids as the pool is great, and very close to the beach as well as most of the things you usually have to buy (floaties/beach toys/umbrella etc) are already there as well as kid sized bikes.

Very satisfied and happy Harbor Beach Housers

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Close to the beach and Ft. Lauderdale businesses, was well equipped with kitchen, personal, and entertainment essentials. The pool is bigger than it looks in the pictures and is well maintained. The neighborhood is quiet and made for a wonderful vacation stay. The house was clean and well maintained. We agree with the other reviews after our stay. Jan and Tom very helpful and understanding during our entire stay. We were disappointed that our cats were not welcome but overall we all enjoyed the house and our vacation very much. We would recommend Harbor Beach House without reservation to anyone looking for a quiet beach house with a lovely pool.

The location is great. It is close to the airport and an easy walk to the uncrowded and clean beach. The house was as clean as could be and the very private swimming pool was a joy. Just wonderful.

Located in a very quiet safe neighborhood only a short walk from the widest beach in Ft Lauderdale where you can watch the cruise ships come and go. Jump on a bike and cycle along the broad walk for miles, people watch at one of the many al fresco bars/restaurants along the way. Relax on the fun Jungle Queen boat tour and see the homes of the rich and famous just minutes away. If you prefer sporting activity close by are golf courses, tennis courts, boat rentals, scuba/snorkeling, deep sea fishing, surfing and paddle boarding or maybe you prefer to sit back and watch; Miami Marlins baseball, Miami Dolphins football, Florida Panthers hockey & Miami Heat basketball- we also host to the annual Orange Bowl College Football Classic.
