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.

Cozy and comfortable
There were four of us that stayed in this house. It had everything we needed.
We loved sitting outside in the beautiful backyard and the hot tub was great too.
We found it comfortable and well decorated.
We didn't get to meet Rhonda and Fritz but I guess that is a good thing in a way because we had no problems. Maybe next time.
If we are in this area again we would definitely stay here again.
We would love to have you stay anytime you are in town. Sorry, we missed meeting you. Next time!

The backyard is what makes this cottage a great getaway! Our pups had a great time exploring it. Quiet neighborhood, great location. Close to restaurants, shops, and the beach. Anything you might need is provided and homeowners are readily available.
It was nice having you. Please come again.
Lovely, Comfortable Home
Enjoyed my stay at this lovely home. Clean, comfortable, so many amenities. Very accommodating hosts. It was a quiet neighborhood, beautiful backyard. Recommended. Thank you.
Glad you enjoyed your visit. Come again.
Comfortable stay for our family with two young children. The home is very neat and had everything that we needed, and is about a 10 minute drive from the beach.
We love returning guests. Hope to see you next year!
This is our own vacation rental and we had family visiting. Nice time had by all.
Perfect spot for a Ft Lauderdale getaway!
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!
