“Ahhh, Life in the Garden”
Reviewed 23 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had an excellent week long stay in Matt's garden. Totally relaxing. Great pool - the main attraction for our six year old granddaughter. Wish we could have taken the sunny weather back home with us! Matt is easy to communicate and work with and the unit is as advertised and pictured. Convenient location almost in Publix back yard.

Our stay couldn't be more perfect!!! The facility is VERY well kept and spotless!!! Matt did a REALLY awesome job on the properties including the garden and surrounding area. It has everything we need to make our stay comfortable. The property is really close to everything. There is a big grocery store close by. Breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurants nearby. Matt, the property manager/owner couldn't be more helpful. He is very friendly and very responsive to any questions and concern. All transactions went smoothly without any problem. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

We spent 5 nights in the two bedroom/one bath apartment and must say that the experience exceeded our expectations! Matt, the owner, is a wonderful host and has created a beautiful and welcoming environment both inside the apartment and out with its lovely pool area and lush gardens. The apartment is clean and seems freshly painted and decorated with comfortable furnishings and attractive decor. The kitchen is well stocked and Matt provides pool/beach towels for use during your stay. This was our first experience booking a non-hotel property and we will certainly return to this property on our next trip to Fort Lauderdale. We felt extremely secure as this is a fully gated property. Matt provides printed information about dining and entertainment in the area and is always available to assist with your needs. It was truly a wonderful place to stay although we did find the master bedroom mattress too firm for our comfort.

“Great Stay at The Garden: Clean Amenities, Accommodating Property Manager, Close to Everything”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Garden is a wonderful home away. Given the time frame we were staying (5 days/4 nights in February) and the desire to get away from the overpriced chains, this was a fantastic option to traditional hotel. The property is well-kept and equipped with all the necessities to get some R&R: solar-heated pool, grill, outdoor seating on both sides of this space for four, WiFi, keyless entry, washer/dryer, beach towels, cooking and dining utensils, cable TV, etc.

Publix and Crown Liquors are a 5-minute walk from the property, and the beach is 1.9 miles away - great to walk or run to during the off-season. We rented a car and drove to various restaurants nearby each evening, and took a few longer day trips.

The property manager was very responsive to our needs; the first evening we needed some extra towels and we promptly received new ones. He answered our questions within a few hours, and made himself available to take care of any issues in person.

The few things that could be improved are the WiFi signal (we had no signal in the bedroom that connected with the bathroom) and the reclining lounge chairs by the pool (some lumbar support would have been great).

I'd definitely book this space again for our next trip!
