About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A toothbrush and a bathing suit is all that is needed in this luxury town home in the charming vacation village of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. (LBTS) Less than 2 blocks is our turquoise blue ocean and sandy beaches. In 1997 the LBTS beach was called the dive capital of the south, with our world famous coral reef only 100 yards off shore. Peer down through the clear water to the reef from the 1000' fishing pier.

Directly out the front door of this 1600 square foot home, is the towns private quiet park with tennis courts, basketball court, mini soccer field, exercise trail and kiddy park. In less than 2 blocks form the front door, there are over 26 restaurants, pubs, drug stores, shops, grocery store and 3 ice-cream shops.

Renters often say how much they love the location, because when someone is off with the car, the people left at home are never stranded with nothing or nowhere to go. LBTS has an exciting atmosphere that features Jazz, Blues, art and food festivals all year round. Every Friday and Saturday night is a closed street family concert in the heart of the restaurant/bar/shopping district.

About Alan Robins

I am originally from Minneapolis, and came to LBTS in 1985 for a vacation, and have been living here full time since 1994. I fell in love with this charming beach village and it still feels like Mayberry on the beach, where no building can ever be over 4 stories high. For those that don't know what Mayberry is, it's a friendly little small town, that in this case, is also in the heart of a big city. It's still my best of both worlds, and I never take it for granted!

Alan Robins purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Alan Robins chose Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

The beauty of this area is that the location is perfect even for those that don't want a car. While those with a car can feel good knowing that those left at the house without transportation can get anything they could need within 2 blocks.

LBTS is unique, in that it doesn't allow any building to be over 4 stories high, which really keeps the density of people and traffic very low in comparison to the rest of Ft. Lauderdale. We are only 15 minutes from the FLL airport and 10 minutes from Downtown Ft. Lauderdale. The Galleria Mall is only 8 minutes away, as is the Ft. Lauderdale strip. Most everything you could ver want to do or see, is 10 minutes away or less.

What makes this townhome unique

It is extremely rare to have a property this close to the ocean, with a totally private fenced in back yard. Secondly, it is a very safe and quiet neighborhood, with the Police, Fire and EMT's less than a block away!

Beautiful spacious townhouse, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the first week of May and we loved it and plan to return. The listing was completely accurate and we were within walking distance to beach, shop and restaurants. The place was just as the photos depicted-it was clean, modern and unbelievably spacious!(There is plenty of room for families!) It was a very quiet peaceful neighborhood and beach. The beach and water were beautiful and the restaurants and shops were uncrowded and friendly.The owner, Alan was very flexible with our check-in and check-out and we felt like he treated us as friends rather than renters. After we were settled in he came by to make sure everything was ok. When we told him the beach umbrellas were broken, he got us 2 more immediately. We loved the private fenced patio with the hot tub. It was so relaxing. The location was also central to our sightseeing agenda and we visited as far north as Palm Beach and as far south as Miami. Everything about it was no hassle, convenient and so laid back. We can't wait to return.

Excellent location great owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, the townhouse was clean, spacious and in a very friendly and safe neighbourhood. No complaints and we can't wait to go back next year. I've already recommended the property to friends and relatives. Many nearby activities, attractions and restaurants, within a 5 minute walk. Same thing for the beach, 5 minutes and your there.
