About the property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom Beachfront Property; Tropical Pool and Hot Tub, Sleeps 14

Welcome to Center Beach 2500 and thank you for visiting us! Our stunning 5 bedroom and 5 bath beach house has amazing ocean views and is steps to tropical Fort Lauderdale Beach. We named our home Center Beach 2500 because it is located on 2500 Center Avenue and is steps to beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach. Fort Lauderdale is near and dear to our hearts as we lived here for many years and have many family and friends here. After moving to Nashville and missing Fort Lauderdale Beach, Center Beach 2500 is now one of our vacation homes. We invite you to make Center Beach 2500 your home away from home....we know you will enjoy it!
We have had the good fortune of staying in many five star hotels and resorts such as the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons and Little Palm Island in the Florida Keys. These places have had a strong influence on how we designed Center Beach from the bed linens and mattresses to the kitchen to the outdoor pool. Center Beach can sleep 14 in the 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.


We invite you to relax outside on the beautiful and tropical patio. The patio is covered and has a ceiling fan. The pool has a barrier fence that can be installed to protect the little ones. Please let us know if you have children who can not swim. The large hot tub has a large spill over waterfall into the pool. There are 3 fountains along the east side of the pool that create a very tropical atmosphere. The pool also has a shallow entry with bubble jets. If you are in the mood for grilling out, there is a Weber Natural Gas Grill. The gas grill has a side burner and a sear feature for your steaks. The patio is excellent for entertaining, as there is a six top table, 2 chaise lounge chairs and 2 patio chairs. 


Escape after a long sun filled day to the upstairs master suite with a beautiful and majestic ocean view. The king size bed with the mattress and linens of the highest-quality.... comparable to 5 star hotels. The room is equipped with a 55 inch LCD TV. Professionally designed walk-in closet is spacious and organized with hangars and a luggage rack. The bathroom has a walk in shower with an amazing ocean view.

Second Master Suite is tucked away downstairs. This is a very spacious bedroom with a king size bed with a high-quality mattress and linens. It is equipped with a 55 inch Plasma TV. There is a professionally designed large walk-in closet organized with hangars, shelves and a luggage rack. There is a nice private bathroom that has just been re-modeled.



The third Guest Bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed with high-quality mattress and linens. This large bedroom has a 42 inch Plasma TV. Closet is organized with hangars, shelves and a luggage rack. The private full bathroom has a shower and a tub.



The fourth guest bedroom is ideal for the kids. It has 2 bunk beds with high-quality mattresses and linens which can sleep 4. This bedroom has a 42 inch plasma TV. Closet is organized with hangars.

There is an upstairs and downstairs hallway bathroom with a shower. The upstairs hallway bathroom also has a bath tub.

The beautiful dining room table can seat 8 and an additional 4 can be seated at the counter.



The kitchen is professionally designed. There is a Jenn-Air 4 burner gas stove top with griddle. There are four counter stools. For the chef, there are full sets of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, silverware, etc.


There are beautiful, majestic views of the ocean in the upstairs living room area. The upstairs living room has over size high end slider glass doors. There is a 65 inch LCD TV with a leather sofa, chairs and cocktail tables.



The upstairs patio has an excellent view of the ocean. The patio has a high end table with four chairs and a ceiling fan.

Everything great about Florida

  • 5 of 5

Toby was great from start to finish with prompt replies, flexibility, and a great property. Ron was fantastic about getting house and pool in great shape. The pool was perfect, the beach was a short stroll away, the neighbors were quiet and friendly. Very family-friendly.

Great location for family get together!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week in Fort Lauderdale and this location was awesome. Lots of room for our extended family. As advertised, only steps from the beach. Well equipped, but a few more beach chairs would be nice since the place sleeps so many people. The property manager, Ron, was friendly and always available to help out. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Great host, great house

  • 5 of 5

The house really is as advertised. It's a block and a half from the entrance to the beach. My mom, who is having knee surgery in a week, was able to walk it! Ron was a great host/manager and was really responsive with questions.

A spacious and well kept home. Plenty of private hedges surround the pool and sauna.

  • 5 of 5

The house and neighborhood setting was the right destination for our girlfriends getaway. Top on our priorities was the ocean nearby. Having the option of staying at poolside or taking a short walk to the beach where we could swim was the best. 82 degree temperatures and sunshine prevailed. Nice in November. Having an upper deck and lower patio area at the pool provided lots of space for us. We enjoy cooking and so the galley kitchen and open counter top provided that. There was a grill outdoors but we didn't take advantage of it. We appreciate that Ron the caretaker was nearby. He responded promptly when I had questions. We had alot of fun and the home created a memorable visit.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

A very short walk from the beach and short drive to all shopping and restaurants. The house and pool were perfect for our special needs son who loved sitting in the zero entry portion of the pool. We had 10 people in the house and we all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms. We all felt like we had plenty of room. The house had 2 separate patios so those that needed to work remotely could do that while still enjoying the outdoors. Wireless internet worked fabulously even with all the devices that were connected. We loved our week here....thanks!!

About Toby Gray

Welcome to Center Beach 2500 and thank you for visiting us! Our stunning 5 bedroom and 5 bath beach house has amazing ocean views and is steps to tropical Fort Lauderdale Beach. We named our home Center Beach 2500 because it is located on 2500 Center Avenue and is steps to beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach. Fort Lauderdale is near and dear to our hearts as we lived here for many years and have many family and friends here. After moving to Nashville and missing Fort Lauderdale Beach, Center Beach 2500 is now one of our vacation homes. We invite you to make Center Beach 2500 your home away from home....we know you will enjoy it!
 We have had the good fortune of staying in many five star hotels and resorts such as the Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons and Little Palm Island in the Florida Keys. These places have had a strong influence on how we designed Center Beach from the bed linens and mattresses to the kitchen to the outdoor pool. Center Beach can sleep 14 in the 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.

Toby Gray purchased this house in 2014

Why Toby Gray chose Downtown

Center Beach 2500 is in the same neighborhood as two of our other properties in the Lauderdale Beach community. Lauderdale Beach is a very quiet beachfront community. Our family absolutely loves the neighborhood, beach, and centralized Fort Lauderdale location.

What makes this house unique

Center Beach 2500 is just 50 yards from the sand. The brand new pool and hot tub is very tropical with a beautiful, majestic ocean view. The pool has a large waterfall, three fountains, and shallow entry area with bubble jets. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished and is 5 bedroom, 5 bathrooms and sleeps 14.
