Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at this place (July 2017). Mr. Craddock is quite accommodating and communicates fast. All of the details are laid out and the place is perfect. It is central to all of the stores, beach and shopping. Thanks again Mr. Craddock for a wonderful stay.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day stay while we were in town for a course. We were so comfortable and had everything we needed to make this a home away from home. Ron the owner is as charming as his cottage, and we loved his attention to detail. We didn't take the coconut because we were afraid to kill it! Would love to stay again when the opportunity presents itself. Stay here and prepare to have a lovely home base from which to enjoy the city. If you get a chance, the Temple Street Eatery and Sakura Foot Spa are not to be missed. Thank you for everything Ron!

Charming, quiet, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I use VBRO rental properties very frequently, and can highly recommend this beautifully and tastefully decorated Cottage to everyone visiting the area. From our welcome by Ron, to the minute we left 10 days later, our experience was exceptional. The furnishings were very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, the screened patio and surrounding front and back gardens created such a peaceful and elegant atmosphere. Nestled in a quiet and very safe neighborhood, it was very quiet, yet we were within walking distance to grocery stores and many great restaurants. The beach is only a short ride away. One of the greatest aspects of this experience was the owner's exceptional attention to our needs. He checked on several occasions to make sure everything was up to our expectations. The Palm Cottage is truly a gem. We plan to make this and his other property a regular spot to stay when we visit Florida each year.

We stayed at Palm Cottage for 5 nights, Ron was very welcoming and helpful. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished, with everything you could possibly need and the beds are so comfortable.It's in a great location with stores and restaurants within walking distance, I was especially pleased with a whole foods store across the road.A short drive from all the main tourist areas. We highly recommend Palm Cottage you won't be disappointed, we will definitely stay there again on our next visit, we loved it.

Poinsettia Heights Travel Tips

The Peaceful Side of Florida at Poinsettia Heights Vacation Rentals

The peaceful and elegant appearance of the Poinsettia Heights neighborhood is a welcome respite for any winter-weary traveler. Located in the northeast side of Fort Lauderdale, it is rather detached from the usual tourist hustle and bustle in the rest of the city. That serenity accentuates the atmosphere of Poinsettia Heightsvacation rentals that boast the personal space lacking in surrounding hotels and resorts. On site are pools, lush gardens and outdoor amenities, with natural stores like Whole Foods and Publix mere blocks away. The vacation rental perks and tranquility of the area makes this side of Fort Lauderdale a southern Eden.

Sights of Natural Beauty Encompass Poinsettia Heights

Within the neighborhood is the strip of water known as Lake Meva. Outside of the fishing and bird watching, visitors can cruise the lake on paddle boats, which are offered at some vacation rentals and Poinsettia Heights condos along the shores. Just to the east, visitors can do the same thing, along with canoeing at the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Having the same refreshing qualities of Central Park, this 180 acre nature getaway features a freshwater lagoon and is great for hiking, biking and taking in the area's unique wildlife and vegetation.
