Davie is a quiet horse town nestled between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. It has a western vibe throughout its main street area along with wide open green spaces, numerous parks and over 165 miles of trail system.

Just 20 minutes to the east is the beautiful Atlantic Coast beaches. Spend the day walking the boardwalks, riding bikes, walking the long stretch of sandy coastline or take a walk along the shops at Las Olas Boulevard.

You can visit Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. There is always something happening, whether its concerts, gambling, dining or shopping (or our favorite, people watching) - only 5 minutes away.

If you really care to 'shop til you drop' you can visit the World Famous Sawgrass Mills Mall - only 20 minutes away.

We are less than 30 minutes away from Everglades Holiday Park in the Everglades. Boat rentals, Airboat rides, fishing and Alligator shows.

Enjoy any type of restaurant food you are craving or visit Publix or Walmart to bring your food home to cook, all within a 10 minute drive.

There are several nationally known colleges, technical institutes, and universities (Nova Southeastern University, Broward College, FAU just to name a few) to keep the area young. If you have a family member graduating, this is the perfect location to be close to the festivities.

Plus, we have the privilege of calling Davie the home of the Miami Dolphins who practice daily at Nova Southeastern University!

Within walking distance you can find a 24 hour restaurant, Bergeron Rodeo Arena, antique shops, Batten's Strawberry Farm (organic market) and much more.......

Davie is ideally located among major thoroughfares such as the Turnpike, I-595, I-75, and is within a few minutes travel to the Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades (Cruises).

If you really feel adventurous, hour and a half drive will bring you to the West Coast of Florida for a whole new coastal experience.

Come visit Davie. In the heart of everything!!!

A charming garden home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days at the Garden home (From March 4th to 14th). We were two couples of 26-27 years old. It is a really charming 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms house. You have everything you need to cook and wash your cloths.

When we booked we did not realize it was a semi-detached house, but it wasn’t a problem at all. Jim and Denise, our hosts, are respectful and always available to help us, suggest places or beaches to visit. The house is near restaurants and the beach (20 minutes from Hollywood Beach, our favorite beach).

Honestly we really enjoyed our stay. Jim and Denise are super hosts. You will love the backyard with a heated pool and a Jacuzzi. Wait to see the outside bar and the deck… they worked really hard to make this place a real paradise.

My advice? Book now, you will love it !

Lovely, comfortable and friendly.

  • 5 of 5

It's a great spot for a stay in the Fort Lauderdale area. We found it remarkably convenient for unwinding a couple of days before going on a cruise. There's a delightful subtropical garden, a bit reminiscent of Costa Rica. The place is spotless. Jim and Denise are super helpful and very considerate of travelers' needs. As VRBO owners, we learned a couple of things we'll implement at our places in Arizona.

Clean, comfortable, perfect space for 2 couples

  • 5 of 5

We flew into Ft. Lauderdale for a 3-day mini-vacation with another couple before embarking on a Caribbean cruise.

We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door of this clean, comfortable 2-bedroom 2-bath duplex in a quiet neighborhood. It has an open concept living room and kitchen/dining area and privacy in the bedrooms--perfect for two couples. The furniture and decor are very nice, and the kitchen is well stocked with most anything you need.

Our hosts, Jim and Denise, provided more than just the usual amenities--there was fresh fruit, coffee, laundry soap and dryer sheets, Wi-Fi, and even a wireless printer (which would be great for printing airline boarding passes). They also offered helpful advice on local restaurants and attractions.

Jim is a landscape artist, and he and Denise have turned their yard into a beautiful garden full of flowers, trees, rocks and colorful stones, and whimsical gnomes and other figures. The pool, hot tub, and patio/bar area also offers a wonderful place to relax after a full day of sightseeing.

Jim and Denise were perfect hosts--they were right next door to answer any questions or engage in friendly conversation, but they still made us feel like the space was ours to use and enjoy during our stay.

We really enjoyed our short time there, and hope to return for a longer vacation in the future.

A comfortable and pretty place

  • 4 of 5

Good home base in the Fort Lauderdale area. We appreciated the provisions awaiting us when we arrived -- fresh fruit, coffee, paper towels, all the linens we needed, beach chairs, good washer and dryer, ceiling fans, A/C and two queen bedrooms with separate baths. We enjoyed soaking up some sun outside the front door and in the nicely landscaped yard and on the deck. The hot tub was a treat we would have used more but for a temporary problem keeping the pool out of use. Jim and Denise, who live in the other unit, were the kind of hosts we like -- always available, but only when we want help or information. We recommend their Garden Home.
