Very clean and cute 12 room room hotel with full kitchen. It's like having the pool to yourself. The beach is a short walk across the street and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. I've stayed here twice in the summer of 2016. I'm coming back in December of 2016 and April of 2017. If you have more...

Just to say well done to Cristie and Marc. Open since the 70's amd still clearly a labour of love. You can always tell by attention to detail. For example the wall stencils have been finished by hand and not just spray painted. Small but adequate kitchenette. Bed superbly comfortable but could be little soft for someone that needs a...

We were grateful, not only these outstanding accommodations, but the personable, congenial treatment we received from live-in owners/managers, Cristie and Marc. We were impressed by their imagination, tastes, and energy in providing a haven for guests. It was a comfortable base for our adventures and made our stay in Florida wonderful.

In Lauderdale by the Sea residents and innkeepers have fought to preserve an authentic Florida character that most of the state has lost to development. That is what makes our little seaside village so special and why guests love to return year after year! Best wishes, Cristie

My wife and I stayed here in late October. All the comforts of home. The rooms are very clean. The grounds are spotless. Two blocks from Commercial boulevard. The owners will accommodate all reasonable requests. Will be back

We stayed here for 3 nights before leaving for a cruise in October. There were 8 of us and we could not have been happier with our choice. The place is just perfect. Clean and friendly and so close to everything. Just across the street from the beach and within walking distance to all good places to eat and shop.

We stayed for two nights in efficiency #3. When we arrived, the owners were unavailable (siesta), but there was an envelope on the door with directions to our room. This worked fine! We checked in the next morning. We never did get to meet Cristie and Mark, but we talked to Gary, who is very friendly. You can park your...

Hi Ingrid; Thank you for your informative review! Yes, with a boutique size property there will be rooms centered in the courtyard but we also have second floor rooms and rooms off to the side for those who prefer more distance from the pool. Your room actually had a new wall air conditioner we put in this summer but we...
