“Excellent Property!”
Reviewed 12 August 2015

We were coming into Ft. Lauderdale for a conference and at the last moment I decided it would be better for my team to be in a house together rather than to be split in two hotel rooms. This property rocked! Very spacious, well equipped, and absolutely beautiful. The property is well kept and very modern. There is a Publix at the end of the street so convenient for meal shopping . We were about 20 minutes from the Broward Co/ Ft Lauderdale convention center but having this house to come back to in the evenings was well worth the drive. Quiet neighborhood. The owner was very prompt in his responses.

“Jospeh's Gallery at 801 East Olas Blvd.”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

When touring the stores on Las Olas Blvd, I would recommend a must stop at Joseph's Gallery. Joe (owner) & Charles were very helpful in assisting my wife & I in purchasing three Swarovski Chandeliers. They really took time to assist us in making that perfect purchase. If you are interested in military collectibles, you really need to take a long look at what would look good for your collection. A fine assortment of ship models. This is a real friendly, take your time, how can we make it right store, that has become rare. These guys are"old school," when it comes to customer service, & I recommend a stop at their store. You won't be disappointed! I give them 5 Stars!

“Jiffy Jeff Transportation”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

I was superbly impressed with the services of Jiffy Jeff! There was not problem in reserving our shuttle and there was great communication via email and phone. Not only that, he is the cheapest service to and from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami.

When we landed at FLL we were soon met by Jeff. He is very funny and very courteous! We had even left our carseat for our 3y/o and he provided one at the last minute. He tracks your flight so he knows when you land and is ready to pick you up quickly.

We were the first ones in so there was a small wait. NOTHING compared to what we've had in the past. Other shuttle only care about filling up the van to get the most out of their gas and time. Not Jeff! He wants YOU to be happy! It was well organized and we only had about a 15 minute wait. (other companies had us waiting for an hour saying "we'll leave in 15 minutes" only to say it again in 15 minutes. That's NOT the way Jeff works! He really did get us there in a Jiffy!

On the way back it was similar. He'd rather make sure the guests are happy rather than packing the van like sardines. We all had enough room, he had a lot of info to gives us about Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

Overall - we were super impressed with his services. Not only was he nice and fast he was very accommodating with the passenger needs. We will be using him again in the future.

“Fort Lauderdale Fire and Safety Museum”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

at 1022 West Las Olas Blvd just outside the downtown area lies a hidden gem. The Fort Lauderdale Fire Museum, open on weekends, is a full working museum and a place for children to play as firefighters. There is no charge for entry and the entire tour can last half an hour to 3 hours depending on how many times your kids want to slide down the fire-pole.

“North Beach Village, Fort Lauderdale”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

My first trip to the beaches of Fort Lauderdale was in the 50s. My family and I spent Christmas there in 55 and 56.I started coming back to the area regularly in 2006 and spent my visits at the very nice Hilton on the beach. I was older, and it was a different feeling for sure. From my room at the Hilton, I could look down at the old neighborhood that had been developed around the time of my first visit in the 50s.
The former charm was gone, and most of the 50s era Mom and Pop hotels were in need of serious attention. I'm sure it was a matter of survival just to stay open. Then, about a year and a half ago, I noticed renovation activity at several of the properties. I learned that a number of the old run down joints were being purchased and reborn with the help of a visionary investor. The result of his efforts has lead to what is now called North Beach Village. It is a fleet of rejuvenated boutique hotels and the rebirth of a once state of the art beach side vacation area as a charming neo classic destination.
There is an open air eatery, bicycles available, and friendly people
everywhere. I've left the Hilton, and am so happy to be in this neighborhood and be able to
avoid such modern inconveniences as valet parking and elevators.
North Beach Village has put me back in touch with things like the youthful joy of evening bike rides, and walks to the beach after a rain shower, things that seem to get lost in the age of high rise high density resort development. If you want to get away from it all, and only be a block away from the 21st century action, try one of the hotels of the North Beach Village group. It's like a trip back in time, and the best part is, the guy is not done yet. I understand he has long range plans that include more dining options and additional
property renovations. It seems like this is only the beginning of what
could easily become the most desirable vacation destination in
South Florida. If you visited Fort Lauderdale Beach in the 50s or
60s, and want to feel the sand between your toes again, go back
and see what's happening. It's better than ever, go back and feel young again. If you've never been there before, put it on your list and take a trip back in time.
