Adorable and private cottage situated amidst beautiful gardens next to the swimming pool in my fenced in backyard. The pool and hot tub are shared with me and two others who live in the main house. The pool area is private from the neighbors, but visible from the main house so is not 100% private to you if that is what you are looking for. The cottage was recently remodeled and updated with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and luxurious.

Guest access
You will have full access to the swimming pool and hot tub anytime you like. I don't care if you wear a swimsuit or not. I'll let you know if my mother is coming over or something and you should put one on. lol We always wear a swimsuit unless you don't first, so shy people don't be afraid to book. Except for the hot tub. I just won't wear a suit in my own damned hot tub! It's a quick in and out with a towel. You won't be subjected to a show unless you ask for one. Ha! :~)

There is parking available on the right side of my driveway and also a gravel parking area in front of the main house.

Other things to note
I have two Chihuahuas. I ask that you please leave the gate closed and latched when coming and going. Gabby is 13 years old and likes to explore the area if she gets out. It makes me very nervous she might get hit by a car or something. Jerry was rescued from a kill shelter a few months ago and has figured out how to open the gate. I will be looking at options to make is so he can't do that anymore. He's pretty smart and will need to sniff you for a a few seconds when you arrive. Just stand still a moment and you'll be fine. Once you have passed the test he will be your very best friend for the rest of your stay.

I'm a gay guy from Grand Rapids, Michigan and now live in a cool house with a beautiful private landscaped pool and cottage in my backyard only a couple miles down the road from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and a short walk from Wilton Manors. How cool is that? Gay, straight or somewhere in between, black, white or purple, all are welcome here. Some of my best friends are straight. I wonder if they tell people some of their best friends are gay? lol :~) I am a travel agent specializing in group cruises and moved to Fort Lauderdale with my job in 2005. I'm very lucky to be able to work from home. I have two Chihuahuas although Lady looks more like a little wolf. Gabby is my other little girl and is a total princess. I've traveled the world quite a bit and can make my needs known in Spanish and French, but I'm not even close to fluent in either of them in any way. An ideal evening is sitting at the umbrella table by the pool with friends, music, a little something to eat and a nice bottle of wine (or two). If we're out there and you're renting my cottage, you are welcome to join us. It's on those occasions I am able to really appreciate my private tropical paradise in South Florida. I'm sure you will love it too!

During your stay
I try to give you privacy, but I also like to socialize by the pool sometimes if you like. We don't use the pool very much during the week, but on the weekends we like to grill food outside, maybe have a few people over, wine or your favorite beverage, and great music! You are always welcome to join us! We don't do it every weekend, just a heads up we like to entertain by the pool once in a while. I promise you would have a good time. :)
