About Fritz and Rhonda Kramer

Fritz and I have lived in Fort Lauderdale since 1977. Fritz is originally from Michigan and works on boats. I am from Southern California and have been selling real estate in Fort Lauderdale for the past 30+ years. We met because of a sailboat - long story, but it's a good one!

We have two children. Our son and his wife live down the street from the vacation rental. They are into computers and social work, and we live on the same street. There is always someone a phone call (or a shout) away if you need anything. Our daughter is now in D.C. working for UNICEF trying to save the world with her trips to Haiti, Nepal, Africa, etc. Everyone needs a do-gooder in the family and we are lucky to have several.

When we aren't working, we enjoy cruising the waterways in our electric boat and playing with friends. We love our little bit of paradise in Croissant Park and wouldn't live anywhere else. We hope you enjoy it too.

Fritz and Rhonda Kramer purchased this bungalow in 2002

Why Fritz and Rhonda Kramer chose South Fort Lauderdale

We bought this home back in 2002 because it was right next door and we figured it might be the perfect spot for one of our parents if something happened to the other. Well, mine could not live without each other and died within a month of each other just before their 60th anniversary. And Fritz's dad is a young, healthy 96 this year and loving life with his new bride. So, the place is so cute we just can't give it up. Who knows - maybe our daughter will stop traveling all over the world some day and come back home to roost next door. In the meantime, you can enjoy it!

What makes this bungalow unique

This little cottage is a prime example of the original mid-century architecture of Fort Lauderdale with modern updates. It still has the perfect Florida floor - Terrazzo, and colorful tiled bathroom. The Gate City windows are still working perfectly and the foliage is wonderful. It gives you a good feel for how things used to be.

Perfect spot for a Ft Lauderdale getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. We were here on business, exhibiting at the Tortuga Music Festival, and the House was close to our location as well as everything else we needed. Since we were working we didn’t have too much free time, but coming back to the hot tub after long days on our feet was wonderful! The hosts were great and the House has everything you need! Will be back!

Centrally located to everything

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our stay being centrally located to all of our activities whether on the water or on land. Everything was as displayed in the photos and the hot tub was a bonus on cooler afternoons/evenings. Fritz and Rhonda were very helpful in answering our questions and providing local knowledge and insight. We will surely stay again.

It was lovely

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to have the extra space for our stay. It was helpful with kids to be able to prepare healthy meals, take a swim in the hot tub, and eat fresh mangos. The house was located close to any activities we headed out to do. We felt safe and taken care of at this house. It was like a second home for the week. The owners are right next door and were there to help with whatever issues arose.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property which is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale (SW 14th near Davie Blvd. in Croissant Park). The house is a Florida original with great floors and enough space for a couple or a family with small children. Fritz and Rhonda provided all linens, kitchen items, paper products, etc. One just needs to buy groceries. The location is great and again Fritz and Rhonda provided directions for all the necessary stops (grocery, nearest pub, beaches, parks ) There is a hot tub in the yard and a covered patio area, which we used a lot. The pictures on VRBO were spot on and the property was well kept and very clean. We will definitely consider this house for the 2017 winter months and would recommend it to anyone wishing to get a flavor of Fort Lauderdale, in a safe quiet, family-oriented neighborhood. Fritz and Rhonda are the perfect hosts, very attentive to all of our needs.
